About Sharon and Pierre Alberts
Originally from the Netherlands, we have lived with our 2 children for 10 years on Curacao and still love the island and our home. As we moved to the USA, we decided to keep our home and rent it out and let other people experience the same love for Dushi Korsou (sweet Curacao) and our home as we did.
Sharon and Pierre Alberts purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Sharon and Pierre Alberts chose Willemstad
Our villa at Jan Sofat offers you all you need to unwind and have a home base from where you can explore the island. The house offers a peaceful day at the swimming pool with a lounge area as well as a playhouse for the kids. Unwinding has never been easier with a masseusse or a pedicure available on the day you want them. Don't feel like cooking? Just let us know as we can arrange a complete dinner for you. This home offers everything the entire family needs. Privacy as well as entertainment. For a nice sea adventure try the boat trips that are offered to Klein Curacao and other nice places.. The point of departure is just at the end of the street. Snorkeling at a sunken tugboat and all the beautiful fishes and corals are not more then 5 minutes from our home at the Caracasbay. Our home is conviently located, away from the crowded tourist areas but near enough to benefit from the touristic restaurants, beaches and nightlife.
What makes this Villa unique
Every sunset is amazing. Overlooking the sea and Spanish water the sky burst open with all kinds of shades from violet to pink and blue. The evenings present themselves as cooler but there is no need to get indoors as it always stays warm, just let the breeze of the tropic winds cool you off. If you do like to escape the warm weather, EVERY room in the house has Airconditioning!!!

The location and amenities of the villa were amazing. Mario, the house manager, was very attentive to issues that came up and addressed them in a timely manner. You won't regret staying at this location!!

Great to hear you and your family had such a great time on the island. Also happy to hear that Mario was of such a help! thank you!
Spring Break 2019
We had a wonderful time! The house is so beautiful and we really enjoyed the pool. Franca was so helpful! We felt very comfortable in the neighborhood and loved exploring the island. I definitely would go back to their home!
Thank you Renee! You're more then welcome any time!
Lovely house that makes you feel like you're home
My two adult siblings and our spouses as well as our mother stayed for a week and left with memories to last a lifetime. Each morning we woke up to the sugar birds trying in vain to build their nest in one of the porch chandeliers or bird houses as we interrupted them with coffee and breakfast outside. We all enjoyed the pool immensely and were grateful to be able to find some type of shade on the porches or in the house during the humidity and heat of the day.
Be sure to watch a sunset from the porch. They are incredible and make great photos! Spend the day at Mambo Beach, which is about 10-15 minutes from the house. And you are better off heading in that direction to go into the city center as navigating the roundabouts can be tricky, as can the agressive drivers.
The only negatives were the house had a few leaking issues when we were there - the washing machine, apartment toilet and tea pot all leaked, but that didn't detract from the time we spent at the house. We were all sad to leave!
Thank you Colleen! Those birds are cute but persistent ;-)
I am happy to let you know that all the issues you mentioned are fixed and replaced! thank you for the heads up. Glad to hear you had such a great time!
This villa has all you could want in a vacation property. We were very impressed about most of the property except for the apartment downstairs. My wife and I stayed in the apartment which for the most part was adequate for what we needed. It needs some repairs, lights in kitchen area weren't working and it must be noted that there is no hot water in apartment unit so we had to use one of the showers in the house. Again, no big deal but it must be noted. As for the rest of the house, there was enough room for our party of 8 that you could have your own space if you wanted it. Every bedroom has it's own shower and toilet which is a plus. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. Pool area is beautiful. The open air blowing through the house during the day keeps everything cool and would be nice if there were someway to have screens on the windows so you could enjoy this breeze at night without any bugs. The house again is beautiful, our hosts and our house manager were of great help and responded to our needs quickly. Hope to be staying here again in the future.
Thank you Robert, glad your group had such fun time! thank you for the review, the issues you mentioned are all taken care of and for the next time, the apartment has hot water now too ;-). Hope we see you back in the future! best, Pierre and Sharon
AMAZING home in a beautiful part of Curacao
This home really is as stunning as the pictures.
From the beginning Pierre was very responsive. He knows the best beaches, restaurants and special Curacao places. One of those special places is this home.
The master bedroom with a super comfy bed is like a private paradise. The other bedrooms are also great (according to our daughters who used them) The AC in each room does a great job keeping things nice and cool during the Curacao heat.
The fully stocked kitchen is gorgeous and user friendly. We cooked in about five times, State of the art, large fridge and great gas stove and oven. The fridge and freezer held all our food and booze.. mostly booze and beer... comfortably
Lots of comfy seating and dining spots.
We loved the inside of this house, but the real magic is outside. The pool is spectacular. Lots of lounging space in and out of the sun. We were in the pool during the day and at night. Love the Wi-fi speaker system that you can hear throughout the house and in the pool area.
Franc is wonderful and responsive. She even purchased some groceries for us that were waiting when our late flight arrived.
The only slight disappointment was the 'game room'. There aren't really any complete games to play. But it did look like there were toys for small kids.
We will come back to Curaco and we will try to lock down this house again.
It was a great week with a great house in a fantastic home!
thanks for your kind words John, much appreciated! I am sorry to hear some games weren't complete. I will ask the property manager to make sure she will remove those. I did bought new ones though, but they weren't in the game room but in the cabinet under the phone ;(. So I wish I knew so I could have told you. Sorry for this. I will ask the property manager to put them in the gameroom as that is where they should be obviously ;-)
happy new year!
Gorgeous Villa - perfect for my family vacation!
Loved our stay in this amazing villa located just outside of Willemstad city center in a gated community. Our family of 6 had loads of room in this spacious, multi-level pool home, with loaded kitchen and all the comforts of home. Extras were very nice (coffee, dish soap, laundry soap, sun-screen, extra kitchen bags). Franca (property manager) was amazing especially since our arrival was very late! Her time was greatly appreciated with explaining specifics with the villa upon check-in and throughout our stay. Would highly recommend this villa for families!
Thanks a lot Sue! super happy to hear you and your family had such a great time. Arriving late (or early) is always a bit of a thing, but we're more then happy to help our guests in any way we can. We agree, Curacao is a great island for families or groups. Hope to see you again!
