Welcome! Bon Bini! Bienvenue! Bienvenidos! Bemvindo! Welkom! Marhaba!
We are a young outgoing couple from Curacao, a beautiful Dutch island in the Caribbean, and have been calling New York City home for over 7 years now. Deva is currently finishing her studies at Columbia University where she studied International Law and Human rights. In her free time, she dances or choreographs, runs or bikes, or she is out visiting her favorite spots all over NY. Ivan currently works for CITCO as a hedge fund administrator, but when he is not on the job he is playing basketball or tennis, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, teaching swimming, or out in town. We both love traveling and learning new languages; combined we speak Papiamentu, English, Spanish, Dutch, French, some Portuguese, and a little bit of Arabic. We look forward to welcoming guests from all over the world to our humble abode, and to point them towards NYC’s - must-see’s and hidden treasures.
