About this listing
Bon bini na Westpunt!
Welcome to Westpunt (west point), and enjoy the tranquility and beauty of Curaçao! The ocean front bungalow is located on Marazul Dive Resort. Our bungalow is the most spacious, fully equipped (the only one with laundry machine, dishwasher and warm and cold running water) and well maintained. The spacious terrace on the first floor has a unique view over the Caribbean sea. In the evening it is a good place to view the sunset and the beautifully lit fishing village of West Point. In the morning, with some luck you can see Dolphins playing just in front of you. Marazul Dive Resort has facilities for scuba divers.
West Point is the ideal place to enjoy the finest beaches. Playa Forti is within walking distance of the Resort, and within five minutes drive you can enjoy the beautiful beaches of Playa Knip Grandi and Playa Knip Chiki. You can meet the fishermen and buy fresh fish for your BBQ.
For the sporty ones among you there is ample to do. At the Resort, divers will regularly meet kindred spirits. There is access to the sea to where the best dives are located. Within 20 minutes by car, one can visit over 10 beautiful dive sites! For hikers and mountain bikers, the area around Mount Christopher and the Northern Coast area are highly recommended. Families with small children can enjoy the nearby pool.
Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao is 35 km away from our resort. A bus takes you there once every 2 hours. We recommend a car however. We have contacts with a car rental service and can assist you. You will be picked up at the airport and you can also return the car there.

About the Host, Nico
Hello dear visitor,
When I was almost 2 years old I arrived on Curaçao with my mother. My father was already there as he worked for Shell. I left Curaçao to go to a boarding school in Holland at the age of 15. At the age of 20 we left the island as my father retired, and so the family went back to Holland.
As aircraft maintenance engineer specialized in helicopters I traveled a lot. I have seen quite some nice places and met lovely people. After some 40 years I returend to Curaçao and immediately felt home. It is no wonder, with such a climate, the warm harted people, the stunning sea and its beaches, the food. Curaçao has stolen my hart. I assure you that you will love it there.
