Description

Seaside villa is an amazing stand alone ocean front villa with large private pool. The villa is very spacious sleeping max 10 persons in 5 bedrooms. The spacious living room is surrounded by 4 bedrooms. These 4 bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 4 and 5 are connected and referred to as the kangaroo room. The occupants share a bathroom. The luxurious villa is modernly furnished and features high end finishes. The spacious fully equipped kitchen is perfectly fit for a home cooked meal which can be enjoyed on the large terrace with outside dining area. The beautiful tropical garden features nice palm trees and green plants. The view over the Caribbean Sea and surroundings is breathtaking and the sunsets unforgettable. The spacious living area features French doors opening onto the terrace. There is a nice shady lounge area under the palapa (palm leaved umbrella area) on the seaside which can also be used as dining area. There is an outside shower and toilet for your convenience. Unfortunately it is not possible to acces the ocean from the villa. The current is too strong and there are many rocks. To prevent accidents from happening, the staircase is closed off. Karakter Beach is in walking distance and features an excellent restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Furthermore you find a bakery, cocktail bar, spa, steam room and sauna. For you water sports activity you can stop by the professional dive shop where you can rent diving and snorkeling equipement. The relaxing lounge chairs and palappa's on the beach are free of charge. The villa is located in a secured resort (24/7) on the West side of the island.

Beautiful Location

First let me say the location of this house is incredible ! You feel completely safe in the gated community. There is a wonderful restaurant on the beach that serves breakfast,lunch & dinner a 3 minutes walk from the house. A beautiful beach with chairs and umbrellas also. Snorkeling & diving is great there. The pool at the house was great after a long day at the beach. The house size and the way it is set up is perfect for large families. The only suggestions I would give is more pillows & blankets . Also perhaps a few boards games available for children to play at night after a little by day at the beach . Overall a really beautiful house with an amazing view !!

Very Nice, would recommend to friends.

The views were amazing. The sun came up on the opposite side but the sunsets were the best you'll ever see. The pool and patio area was the best ever. Very large. Good shade in several places. The pool depth is great for kids that like to play and dive. Couple of minor negatives. The 5th bedroom is accessed through another bedroom and they share a bathroom. That was not clear to us at the onset, not sure if that would have changed our decision to stay or not but it did add a little awkwardness for the couples that had to share those 2 adjoining rooms. The kitchen is small for our standards, not a ton of work area and we like to cook. A few small appliances were missing or non-operational, toaster and blender. Accept for those few minor things the house was well kept and the mid week maid service was very welcome. Koral Bar and Karakter Restaurant are easy walking distance.

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Location

We stayed at Villa Catalina (it's not Villa Luna) at Coral Estate for 1 week in January. The location of the home is breathtakingly beautiful. The home has a large pool with stairs and a large deck (great for reading/yoga/sunbathing). Entree to the pool was difficult for my 85 year old mother; she was able to swim, but we had to help her up/down the pool stairs as there is no railing to hold onto; for a younger person, this wouldn't be a problem.We ate all of our meals outside in one of two covered, outdoor dining tables, one of which is overlooking the water. The home is large and we had 9 people staying in the home; I would recommend this home for either 8 people (4 bedrooms) or use of the 5th "bedroom" for a family with young children. Each bedroom (1-4) had a bathroom; the configuration of this last bedroom would be ok for a family with young children, but not for 4 adults, although there are 4 beds. (King bed, then two twin beds, then a bathroom and one needs to go through the room with two twin beds to enter the bathroom (no door on this bathroom; that's why this would be fine for 1 couple or couple with young children.) There is a washer (no dryer), but the clothes dry very quickly on an outside clothesline. There are air conditioners in all 4 bedrooms, but none in the main part of the home. We were outside most of the time, so we didn't miss air conditioning inside the main part of the home, although it would have been nice to have a ceiling fain in the living room area (there was a fan in the kitchen.) The kitchen was fairly well equipped. The furnishings (inside and out) and plates could use updating. The location is quiet, great for walking on a quiet street, 1 block walk to the Coral Estate Center (2 restaurants, coffee shop with fresh coffee/breads), and a spa. It is a 30 minute drive to the closest real supermarket and about a 15-20 minute drive to a minimarket. Wonderful beaches are within 10-20 minute drive from the home. We went diving on 3 days with Relaxed Guided Dives (highly recommended) and Curacao has some terrific restaurants (recommend Trio Penotti, Rozendaels, Kome, and Karakter.) It's about a 30-40 minute drive to Willemsted from the home. The only reason that I didn't give this home 5 stars is that the furnishings are a bit dated and there were some things that needed to be fixed upon our arrival. These were taken care of fairly quickly. We would return to this home.

Wonderful home

This was my 2nd time to curacao and first time renting this home and I will be back! It was a wonderful home. No scams or rip offs, everything was as described. Pool is nice with great views of sunsets every night. You can not beat the value for this home which is large and private. Pool is 6ft all around which was nice(Id put in underwater bar seats if I owned this property) because sitting in pool is amazing. House is short stroll to Karakter restaurant. I snorkeled in front of home down to Karakter it was perfect. Can not wait to come back next year!!
