About this listing
Our countryside cottage resides on the Caribbean island of Curacao.
The cottage is situated on a hill slope, which provides a beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding hills. This is all located on the same premises as our own home.
It has an air-conditioned bedroom, small kitchen, bathroom with warm water, living room, elevated porch, and a small pool.
We are located on the West side of the Island where you can find the most beautyful beaches. It is only 10 minutes away to "Cas Abou", one of the most dazzling beaches on the island. Diving on this side of the island is the best experience you can get. Curacao's national park, Christoffelpark, where the highest mountain of the island is located, is only 20 minutes away. While there you can also visit the museum and countryhouse "Savonet", well known for it's slavery history.
The nearby town Barber has a well stored supermarket, bank, ATM machine, gas station, doctor and small pharmacy.
While staying at our place, you are in the middle of Curacao's beautyful nature. Here you can relax without stress of any kind !
The whole cottage and its direct surroundings are for the guests.
Interaction with Guests
We do live on the property fulltime, so interaction is whenever wanted.
We are always here to answer questions.
The neighborhood is quiet, very local and natural. It is nice to explore that already :-)
There is no frequent/nearby public transportation within 1 mile/1,5 km so you'll need a rental car.
Parking on the gated property.
The use of A/C has to be paid seperate. There is a meter and you pay what you used at the end of your stay.
Please no smoking inside the cottage.
No animals to bring.
Though my stay was short at only 3 nights, Monique and Ellis' place fit the bill perfectly for me. I think they live on the best half of the island, with so much of the best things to see/do within a short drive. Their place just drips love and care - you can tell they really enjoy taking care of it and their guests. I had a couple really enjoyable conversations with Monique, which provided some good insight into Curaçao and the region.
The pool was a special bonus - it's the perfect place to idle away a hot afternoon. I especially enjoyed that.
I didn't have any issues with my stay. If I had to come up with anything that would improve the experience there, it might be to find a shaded place the hammock could be hung rather than out in the full sun. But that's it!
I'd fully recommend staying with Monique and Ellis if your travels took you to Curaçao.
We had a very nice stay in the countryside cottage. If you have a car there is easy access to the nice beaches of the west.
We felt very welcome and had everything we needed!
Loved our stay at this beautiful cottage. Very polite and clean with an amazing view! They even let us borrow snorkeling equipment. Absolutely would stay here again
Monique and her family were incredibly welcoming and accommodating during my husband and I's stay in Curacao!! Monique was very easy to contact and always ready to answer questions for us, even offering to have groceries ready for us upon our arrival. The place exceeded our expectations and is the perfect "get-away", providing for a very relaxing vacation. Monique and her family were always open to provide recommendations for dinner, beaches, and things to do. We could not ask for anything more. Perfect location for a very relaxing and refreshing getaway! We will definitely come back if we get the chance to return to Curacao!!
We hadden het voorrecht om een aantal dagen te mogen verblijven in Monique haar cottage. En dat is ons enorm goed bevallen, haar woning staat op een zeer mooie uitvalsbasis richting de mooie natuurgebieden zoals het Christoffelpark en de vele mooie baaitjes van het eiland.
Het huis zelf was boven verwachting goed, het zwembad en prive terras erg fijn. En de mogelijkheid om lekker te barbecueën maakt het helemaal af. De eigenaars zelf zijn vriendelijk en hartelijk en staan voor al je vragen klaar en helpen je waar nodig.
Kortom een dikke tien voor Monique en co.
Ons verblijf van 4 dagen in de Countryside Cottage was precies wat we ons van de advertentie hebben voorgesteld. Een heerlijke plek met een leuke cottage met een heerlijk zwembad. We voelde ons echt welkom bij Monique en haar man en dochter. Heerlijk open en vriendelijke mensen. Bij een volgend bezoek aan Curaçao zullen we zeker weer overwegen om naar deze cottage te gaan. Echt een aanrader!!
We really enjoyed the cottage and Monique and her family are wonderful. We only stayed for a few days, but they went out of their way to help us to explore this amazing part of the island. We will def be back!
