We loved this property for many reasons. Everything was perfect and there were no bad surprises. Our property manager Petra was very responsive to our needs and communicating with the owner Linda Lou was easy from day one. I would recommend this villa to anyone. The compound is extremely safe and there is security. The views and sounds of the ocean were incredible and allowed us to relax the whole time. We enjoyed Curacao and would love to return next year.
We're so glad you enjoyed Villa Seashell. It is a very livable home and the oceanfront location can't be beaten! We look forward to hosting your family again!
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Seashell and if we return to Curacao, we would stay here again in a heartbeat! This home was perfect for the seven adults in our party - the four king bedrooms with their own bathrooms were a big reason we originally selected this home. The views are absolutely spectacular - the home is right on the water and we spent every waking moment enjoying the patio, gazebo and pool. So-o-o relaxing! Pride of ownership is evident - the home is very well maintained and super clean and Petra was available if we had any questions. The owner, Linda Lou, was a pleasure to work with - her recommendations made our stay a delight!
Thank you for such a wonderful review of Villa Seashell. It is a special house and we're so happy you and your family love it!
A week in paradise
We stayed at Villa Seashell for a week. We loved the property and the area. The outdoor living area was our favorite part. We would spend the days going to different beaches/sightseeing and the afternoons were spent in the pool. As the sun was going down we would move to the outside cabana to enjoy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails while we watched the sun go down. Each sunset different from the previous day. Rarely did we go inside but the inside of the home is comfortable. We had a fabulous totally relaxing holiday. Thanks for having us!
We are thrilled with how much you enjoyed our home! Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again some time!
Good if you are a large family on a very tight budget.. otherwise pass!
My wife and I booked five nights and left after two. The house looks much better in the pictures. The house layout is horrible. The only place to get a good water view is from the back porch or the hut near the water. The hut was very nice. The back porch was very nice. That's about it. The house does not have glass windows. Instead it was heavy wood shutters. A few with screens, most without. They don't work well, don't close 100% (more like 70%), so bugs come and go. Couldn't stand the gnats inside and out. They were in your ears, eyes, on your food, etc. horrible. No way to keep them out of the house.
ELECTRICITY: This is the first home we've rented where the owner monitored your electric use. You get a quata! You are not encouraged to use the air conditioning. The only air conditioning is in your bedroom. But, the shutters don't close, so the air works hard... cooling the great outdoors.. It was 90 degrees and humid out.. How do we not use the air??? If you go over your quota, you will be charged!
Location: The resort down the street had great food. But that's it. Nothing else even close. You will drive 20+ minutes to find anything.
The home itself is nothing fancy, higher-end, etc. It's basic, fairly run down. Lot's of large spiders, bugs and something that would enter at night and poop all over..
The pool is not heated. It was freezing! We didn't use it.
Oh, please make sure you cover all drains with a wet cloth or you get a stinky sewer odor.. it was bad!
The house is very close to the neighbors. The pool is within feet of the next home. The neighbors were partying and very loud. Not a private place!
Crime: We were warned to lock up everything... the grounds are not sure. No fence, gates, etc. we had a few maintenance men come walking right around the house and surprised my wife. Not a good feeling.
Safety: The main staircase going upstairs is very short and made of slippery tile. I hit my head on the ceiling which is very low at the beginning of the stairs. There is no railing! Very dangerous for kids.
Overall. If you want a nicer upscale home, windows, screens, bug control, private, safe, etc. pass on this one! If you are on a very tight budget, have a big family, don't mind the bugs, then this place might be just fine. With the great reviews, apparently we just rented the wrong place, and there are plenty of people who enjoyed it just fine.
Your review is so sad to me on so many levels. Our goal since we started renting out our home in 2013 is to offer wonderful vacations to our guests in the incredible setting of Curacao. Obviously, this didn’t succeed for your trip.
Our house is built in the typical way of our island. We are blessed with beautiful days and cooling trade winds. As such, you’ll find only bedrooms are air conditioned. And yes, like many other places, resources are limited and energy conservation is important. More good news? I have yet to see a spider on the island after 22 years.
We are happily located in the safest area of the island, in one of the nicest communities. If one is looking for lots of urban activities and nightlife, we strongly recommend staying in Willemstad.
We and our on-site property manager tried contacting you several times, with no response.
It is my understanding, as you booked at a very short notice of your stay which is typically unheard of in Curacao as a vacation destination, that your original accommodation did not suit you. Unfortunately, neither did our home.
Like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the first two accommodations didn’t meet your needs. We hope the third accommodation you found ended your trip to Curaçao on a happier note.
This property was just gorgeous! It is in the Coral Estates, which is about a half hour from Willemstad, but worth the drive. Linda Lou was super responsive and provided tons of information. The house was clean, the setup worked really well, the pool was perfect, and the views really were breathtaking. This property was also conveniently located within walking distance to two yummy restaurants. If you rent this property, note that the upstairs rooms only had one USA adapter between them and you'll need bug spray (we did leave some behind).
So happy to hear that you had a good time and enjoyed the house and Curacao!
I wish I had known you were looking for more USA adapters. There should be more of them downstairs in the drawers of the side table.
Glad you left some bug spray :), there has been some rain on the island lately. If you ever decide to have another vacation in Curacao you are very welcome to stay again!
For our future guests: Like all Caribbean islands, Curacao also has some mosquitoes. Curacao is much drier than the northern Caribbean islands but when it rains there will be some mosquitos. To prevent any mosquitoes from coming into your bedroom, all our bedrooms have mosquito screens.
