We enjoyed a very relaxing stay at Herbert and Michaela's apartment. They are both friendly and welcoming and provided all the information we needed upon check-in. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and the property is extremely secure: off-street parking behind a locked gate plus an alarm system for the apartment.
Amenities were plentiful including a furnished kitchen, wifi, air conditioning and a standing fan in the bedroom, TV with cable, local cell phone to borrow (renters to provide sim card), outdoor clothes drying rack, plenty of towels including for the beach (and a picnic cooler to borrow), international plug converters, mosquito net for the bed, etc. It's a large apartment and the bed is comfortable.
The property is very peaceful - large shade trees around the house and the sound of many birds all through the day and night. Location is not close to downtown Willemstad, but only about a 20 minute drive which was easy once you figure out the Ring system. In my opinion, a car is required when staying at this apartment. So is mosquito repellent - which is a requirement for visiting Curacao in general :) There was a well-stocked pharmacy near-by (Botica Novo) and a nice supermarket on Winston Churchillweg just after you turn left off of Gosieweg (the main road nearest the apartment). Need ice for the picnic cooler? Look for the smaller grocery about a block left of the larger supermarket (if you're facing it). There is an ice freezer ouside, $1.50US for a large bag of ice. We've also learned that most of the 'snack' places sell ice.
Thank you Herbert and Michaela! We highly recommend your Airbnb rental! :)
