Come to Blue Bay, Curacao, and stay in a gorgeous villa where the lines are blurred between inside and outdoor living. Swim, snorkel or scuba dive from our beach, golf on our adjoining and picturesque golf course and see all that Curacao offers.
On offer is a 1700 square foot lower villa (this includes both indoor and outdoor space). It has:
- 2 large bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with two-singles that can become a queen, or not
- 1 smaller bedroom with two single beds
- full kitchen with American sized fridge, combination oven/microwave, 4 ring countertop stove and all cutlery, plates, glasses, pots and pans, etc.
- living room with 2 loveseats, internet connection and a tv that includes many US channels
- a huge deck that is accessed via 2 adjoined, large sliding doors, that, when opened, bring the outdoors inside and vice versa
While it is a lower villa, it has the second highest vantage point in Blue Bay Village, so you get nice views of the surrounding area but most importantly, you have a strong, constant breeze and this is vital because as it is basically 29 degrees every day of the year. As long as the breeze is strong (which it is at our villa) you always feel cool.
Guests have access to the entire villa. Also, beach access is free for guests staying at Blue Bay, a preferred rate on rounds of golf (30% off), as well as many other amenities inside the gated community that is Blue Bay.
Interaction with Guests
As this accommodation is located away from where I live, I will rarely, if ever, see guests in person. However, I will communicate with all guests extensively and when in Curacao there is staff available to help with check in/out and to take care of any of your needs during your stay.
Blue Bay is one of the most beautiful parts of Curacao - and though I am biased, I am also accurate:) It is 10 minutes from the Hato Airport and about 12 minutes to downtown Willemstad, a vibrant city.
Blue Bay showcases one of only two golf courses on the island and the beach has lots of shade. Also, lots of amenities including: dive school, snorkeling, tennis, field hockey/soccer, a choice of two restaurants and more.... Finally, you are only about 5 minutes from a great grocery store where you can get everything you need to enjoy preparing food in our kitchen.
Truly, the easiest way to enjoy Curacao is to rent a car. There is an abundance of international car hire agencies as well as some local ones. The local ones are a little cheaper but the international ones are right at the airport and so, more convenient. Your choice though!
Alternatively, if you want to save on a car rental, and you are willing to live most of your time at Blue Bay, for a small fee I can arrange for you to be picked up at the airport and driven to the local grocery store. While this is much less expensive than renting a car, it does limit your ability to see the island, so may be best suited for those on a tight budget or those who have already seen the island and are coming specifically for Blue Bay.
Other Things to Note
First, the calendar is up to date so feel free to book your stay instantly using Instant Book. On the other hand, feel free to contact me if you had any questions.
Second, the earlier you book the better chance you have of getting the dates you most desire. Obviously, I will always try to be as helpful as possible with shorter timelines, but sometimes my hands are tied.
Third, there is regular cleaning done during your stay, which is included in the price, but for your cleaning upon vacancy we do require a US $45 payment.
Fourth, all prices include water/electricity and tax, however, I do take a deposit which will be fully refunded to you if there is no damage and if the water/utility bill is under $150/week. This is ample but should you, for instance, leave the air-conditioning running non-stop and go over $150/week usage, I will charge you the cost beyond the $150 and send you back the remainder.
Fifth, we provide all towels (including beach towels) linens, pillows, etc. so no need to pack that with you.
Finally, if you had a party larger than 6 people, we can accommodate that but it would mean dividing your large group into two or more smaller groups with each group getting and paying for a separate villa. Villas may or may not be directly next to each other.
- It is a non smoking unit and we'd prefer to keep it that way.
- Pets are not allowed.
- As there are others nearby, enjoying the beautiful evenings is a great part of the stay, respecting your neighbours is too.
Antes que nada mis agradecimientos a Briam por la buena predisposición a contestar todas las inquietudes antes de nuestra llegada y también a Jan por recibirnos.
Recomiendo este complejo por su ubicación sus instalaciones y la cabaña en si con una terraza amplia es preciosa la usamos mucho, solo como critica constructiva faltaría un horno y tender para la ropa ( el secarropas del complejo justo no funcionaba) y quizás para la estadia de una semana se pueda disponer de recambio de toallas cada 2 o 3 días sobretodo las de playa. La piscina es muy linda. Hay que disponer de un vehículo eso si para toda la estadía, está a medio camino de las mejores playas de zona norte y en proximidad hay un supermercado por lo cual es muy conveniente.
Brian's place is at one of the best beach resorts on Curacao, the facilities are great, excellent customer service. We have very young kids and it's all very kids friendly. You can walk to the beach in a few mins, or when it's hot, a 30 second drive ;-).
We stayed for 2 weeks, enjoyed it a lot, the villa is great value for money. It is serviced like it is part of the hotel, they make your bed, fresh towels every day, free beach towels and free wifi... A pretty good deal. The huge porch has a nice view, a couple of fans to keep you cool in the evening.
Blue bay is just 15 mins or so west of Willemstad, great central location, because the most beautiful places on the island are on the west side. Excellent supermarket within 5 mins drive with ATM.
We had a very comfortable stay and next time we are on the island we'll be in touch Brian! thanks.
We had an amazing vacation in Curacao. The villa is very nice and comfortable, as well as common areas, pool, beach and restaurant. I always found it very clean.
The city is wonderful, and the beaches are so beautiful. My daughters will never forget this vacations!
When we get back to the island, for sure we will looking for you.
Thanks for letting us spend an unforgettable vacations.
Tuvimos unas vacaciones increíbles en Curacao. La villa es muy bonita y cómoda, así como zonas comunes, piscina, playa y restaurante. Siempre me pareció muy limpio.
La ciudad es maravillosa, y las playas son tan hermosas. Mis hijas nunca olvidarán estas vacaciones!
Cuando volvamos a la isla, sin duda vamos a buscarte.
Gracias por dejarnos pasar una vacaciones inolvidables.
Brian was very helpful and answered very fast. He is not on the island, but the appartment is managed by a hotel reception which is 24h open. they are also very fast and friendly. The location is perfect if you want to explore Curacao, it's in the middle of the island. But it's important to hire a car to reach all parts of the island. We had roomservice every day (made the beds, changed the towels, took the garbage outside, every 4 days the linen were changed). We enjoyed the big balcony, the pool (1 min walk) the really great beach (we saw nearly all beaches and this one is one of the best! 5 min walk). It's a very peaceful, quiet and secure area. We had a great time in Curacao, thank you!
Brian, a thoughtful host, although he was not physically in the island, he made his presence felt by constantly communicating with us even before we arrived in to Curaçao. Moreover, during the sudden changes of our trip, he immediately coordinated it with the management of his property, provided some helpful information, and his response was quick. The location of his place is impeccable since it is situated in the middle of everything Curaçao has to offer (airport, city, night life, beautiful beaches, shopping centers, etc). A lovely villa for any family size, has a nice balcony view, a lot of open space and a great value for your buck. Within the property, it's a walking distance to the private beach, golf course, restaurant, dive shop and more. Not to mention, it's in a very relaxing, quiet and secured resort. Hope to come back next time. Thanks, Brian!
I am a teacher and Caitlin is a counseling therapist. Our daughter is now 4 and she keeps us hopping. We love our villa in Curacao and we are sure you will too. As well as joining Airbnb, we have home exchanged successfully for over a decade and we've hosted foreign students in our house. All of this has furthered our love of culture and history and there is plenty to look forward to should you choose to visit Curacao. Cheers.
