Our best experience at Lucille's was Lucille herself. She and her
handyman husband were communicative and quickly came to fix the shower drain and a bad kitchen bulb. Lucille was very bright
and full of suggestions for meals and attractions . But what immediately swarmed us when we entered the house and stayed with us every minute until our departure was mosquitoes. We tried bug spray on ourselves, an aerosol spray forthe rooms, burning incense-style coils, even Vick's vapor rub on our exposed skin, and finally constant fans in the bedroom and living room when we were trying to relax. None of it effectively kept us from getting bitten everywhere, every day. The only solution was to wear long socks, long pants, a full-sleeve shirt, and try not to spend too much time in the house.
Could this have boiled down to our tourist-scented blood being extra tasty for the local bug population? Possibly. But nowhere else on the island, in any restaurant, museum or shop in Punda, Otrabanda, in any of the places at Mambo beach, even in Hato Cave, did we encounter mosquitoes in any comparison to Lucille's home.
The pictures in the listing must have been from when the house was first made available for rental -- it is a little dingier (the beige, rough, sometimes stained towels were my biggest issue) and the
backyard is really a different looking place now. There is no hot
water (which was a surprise, but there is an operating washing machine in the backyard, which came in handy, and clothes lines for drying.
We have had relatively good experiences with AirBnB so far, so this one bound to happen, but still...
We loved curaçao its a wonderful Island with wonderful people. We made great experiences there.
But: the house was not at all like in the pictures. Everything was dirty and it was shabby. Dishes weren't clean. The fridge was dirty and the oven didn't work. The AC didn't work well and the backyard wasn't even useable. The house needs definitely renovations. We are kinda disappointed. Lucille was very nice but we expected just something else for the price. We feel not comfortable that we can't give a positive feedback but we just want to be honest to further guests
Anna made us feel very welcome and responded quickly to our requests. The accommodation was as listed, spacious and comfortable for our group of five to share. Only one of the three bedrooms had A/C, though the others had fans. The back garden made the perfect venue for a grill-out! We found a car was essential for getting around, and bug spray is a must.
Words can not express how much my friends and I enjoyed Ms Lucille's property. It is definitely a "must do". Along with the property Ms Lucille was helpful in every way as this was my first time in Curacao. From arranging pickup from the airport, informing us the most visited local spots, and introducing us to a person assistant for our entire weekend.
Nothing but great comments to leave for Ms Lucille. Thanks and hope to see you all soon!
We had a great time at the Lucille Residence. It is a very nice house with everything you need. Also Anna and her husband are warm and helpful people.
Right next to the house is one of the region's recommended restaurants, which serves tasty food for a good price.
There's a nice beach within about 30 minutes walking distance from the house, and you can get easily to Willemstad city center by bus, but in order to get around the island you should rent a car. There are so many more gorgeous places to see.
We can highly recommend the place!
Wij hebben een fantastische tijd gehad in Old C Bay 60 in Salina.
(Anna) Lucille is een geweldige gastvrouw. Ze is erg zorgzaam voor haar gasten.
En bovendien een schat van een mens. De locatie is IDEAAL voor toeristen die meerdere plekken van het mooie Curacao willen zien. Je zit precies tussen Willemstad, Jan Thiel (excursies) en Mambo Beach in. Allemaal binnen enkele kilometers. Strategisch perfect dus. Bovendien zijn in Salina zelf supermarkten, winkels en genoeg restaurants.
Een ABSOLUTE aanrader! Wij komen zeker terug.
Mark en Kim
Lucille and her husband are wonderful. I really enjoying talking with both. Everything was as advertised . The ac in the main bedroom worked well and the internet was the fastest we have used while on vacation. Even though the house is out of the downtown area it took no time at all to drive there. I fully recommend this host and her house.

I love people and I always want people to feel welcome in my houses and on the island.
Just feel like you're in your own house. I love to have people around and communicate with them. I am a retired kindergarten teacher, so I have a lot of patience.

We recommend to rent a car to go to the Westpoint beaches that are a little far, although we are situated near a main road with a bus stop that take you to town. Wifi and AC in the busses
So pack up and stay with us!!
