The space
When you're visiting a unique Caribbean island like Curacao, you don't want your experience to be spoiled by the uniformity hotels offer for mass tourism.

It's time to ditch the hotel, so at the comfort of this private luxury vacation home, you can enjoy the real island way of living.

Waterfront apartment Sailaway by Tommy Coconut is a place without deadlines and demands, it's a place where you can connect with loved ones and together create new memories to last for a life time. Where you can breath freely, live spontaneously and relax in style.

This spacious (160 m2) ground floor apartment was recently remodeled and tastefully furnished in Island fashion.

Get in a tropical state of mind by enjoying your morning coffee on the porch with views of the Bay up on to the famous Table Mountain. Watch the entertaining scenery of boats leaving the harbor and birds hovering above the bay.

If you want to see some tropical birds from close by, we encourage you to put some sugar on the deck. Soon you’ll have a group of new friends who will visit you daily while singing the popular island song ‘Don't worry, be happy’.

The best way to describe this porch is as a very spacious, comfortable, outside living room where you can chill in the shade, get a tan while lounging on one of the sun-beds, or have the island breeze put your mind at ease while taking a relaxing nap in one of the hammocks.

One of the island rules is that you should spend 10 minutes in a hammock every single day, unless you’re too busy. Then you should spend an hour.

The waterfront location is one-of-a-kind and adds the unique feature that you have direct access to the water from your porch. Go have fun on the two persons kayak or on one of the Stand-Up-Paddle boards you're invited to use for free (up on availability).

Just 20 steps from your apartment you can take a refreshing dive in the wonderful swimming pool with views over the Bay up on to the famous Table mountain.

In the evening you can have outside diners on the porch, or if you have a Grillmeister in your group you can plan a tasty BBQ party.

Unlike the sea, where the view turns totally dark at the night, the view of the Bay never gets boring. Before it gets dark make sure to watch the specular of changing colors when the sun slowly goes down while appreciating the cold Amstel Bright in your hand.

Notice how many words we spent on describing the porch? Because that’s where you’ll spend most of your time.

We’ll bet you a coconut you’re gonna have many fabulous moments to cherish from there, and that's why we took the appropriate time to describe this for you.

A big glass sliding door connects the outside porch with the inside living room, this makes the house feel very open and you’ll be very pleased to feel the fresh island breeze also inside of the house.

The living room has a flatscreen Smart TV allowing you to watch Netflix, or anything else of your choosing that the internet has to offer. However, while on the island we recommend to watch more sunsets than Netflix.

We understand you love WiFi and therefore our WiFi connection is as strong as a coconut. In the rare occasion that the WiFi signal would get weak, we suggest you switch to strong rum and you won't be bothered by this inconvenience anymore.

Enjoy creating meals together in the modern kitchen which is fully equipped with a microwave, oven, dishwasher and all cooking essentials. A big American fridge will keep them drinks nice and cold, or get a tasteful cup of coffee from the Senseo coffeemaker.

For good food & good mood you can also walk to restaurant Taboossh (100m.), one of our favorites, or walk to Meat the Fish (150 m.), The Pier (200 m.) or Pop's place (400 m.). Did you know that vacation calories don't count? So no one has to be worried about that.

Although for 98% of your time on the island the dress code is: “If you’re not barefoot, you’re overdressed”, you do get a washing machine, dry rack and ironing board. On the other hand, you also have the option to go on full vacation mode and have this done by a good laundry company only minutes down the road.

In total you have three airconditioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed and offers wake up views to the water. It has it’s own private bathroom, a walk in closet and a big glass sliding door opening to the porch. The two others bedrooms are in the back of the apartment and share a bathroom.

All beds, in every bedroom, come with a most comfortable Bamboo Temperature Regulating Memory Foam mattress topper. This offers very firm support and at the same time it feels as soft as like you’re sleeping on a dreamy cloud.

You may expect the very best in bed linnen, also made from Bamboo material. This feels softer than a 1.000 thread Egyptian cotton and it sleeps 3 degrees cooler.

And did you know that Bamboo also offers the best hygiene? Bamboo is allergens resistant and repels dust mites and bed bugs. Bed bugs hate Bamboo, and that's why these beds don’t have them. Now who wouldn't want to sleep comfier, cooler and cleaner?

We understand that when people are far from home they might feel a bit more insecure because they don't know the new environment that they are in yet. However, you can trust the resort and the apartment are very safe. That's also probably why most residents never bother to lock the walk in door to the resort. In fact, we belong to the very few and fortunate in this world who to this day don’t have an alarm system.

We do work with Jan Thiel Security service, a private company who secures our property and guests with 24/7 surveillance patrol and also with camera monitoring of the area.

Maybe the best way to describe the safety is that in the evening you will see a lot of islanders walking and jogging in the streets and you can feel free to do so too.

It's no more than a 150 meter walk to the closest beach, but it's also a lot of fun to use one of the cool electric bikes and cruise the neighborhood and other beaches.

Now, are you ready for salty air and to get some sand in your hair?

Then it's time to come out of your shell and seas the day because life is now!

Let's come experience the island way of living at it's very best and feel your best by booking with us now.

We would love to sea you soon.

P.S.: You may find this a long description, but hey, island days and island ways. You may also own a watch, but here on the island we own time :-)

Guest access
Guests have the entire apartment to themselves and they can use the parking space and the swimming pool.

Guests pay extra for the electricity and water they use (in our experience this is on average euro 10,- per bedroom per day). The reason is that because guests are renting the entire property for themselves we can't control or someone by mistake leaves the airconditioning on while away to the beach, or maybe leave a faucet open.

Guests are invited to use:

★ Two persons Kayak
★ One of the Stand Up Paddle Boards
★ Or an electric bike

This is free of charge, for as many times as you wish, based up on availability!
Or you can secure on of these items by renting them for euro 10,- a day / 50,- a week.

Other things to note
We believe that your next vacation should be your best vacation and to help make that happen we offer:

★ A PERSONAL TOMMY COCONUT HOST: THE PINA TO YOUR COLADA!

We will get you the information you want, share secrets only islanders know about and assist you with anything you may need.

★ SEND US YOUR GROCERY LIST
We understand that when people arrive after a long flight they prefer to take a jump in the pool rather than having to go to the supermarket. If you provide us with a grocery list we will be happy to take care of this. Up on your arrival your kitchen and refrigerator will already be stocked with the essentials you want.

★ AIRPORT PICK UP SERVICE
Let us know if you wish to be picked up at the airport by our chauffeur, the cost for three people are US$ 50,- and US$ 10,- for every extra person.

Every seashell has a story and this is ours. We came to Curacao for the first time about 25 years ago to find out that the grass is always greener under a coconut tree. Right away we fell in love with the amazing people, the beautiful environment and the entire Island way of living. We live in Curacao since 2007 and it's the place where our two children, Boy (21) and Raymonde (19), grew up. We are first of all family people and animal lovers, and second we own several businesses. Most people here know us from the many real estate projects our family developed. Beautiful apartment resorts like: Spanish Water Residence & Marina, Masbango Beach Resort, Residencia Tropicana, Jan Thiel Hills Resorts, Residencia Terrace a La Mer and Residence Le Bleu. When our children flew out to study hospitality at Hotelschool The Hague and TIO University in Amsterdam we felt that our home became too big for just the 2 of us. But we have so much love for it that we didn't want to sell it. And that's how we decided to start to rent it out to vacationers. Very quickly after we started receiving the first guests we realized how much we enjoyed doing this and decided to free up more of our properties and make it a company: Tommy Coconut Vacation Home Rentals.
