Owners are a local couple living over 35 years on the island.
Rita and Winfried Merkies purchased this Townhouse in 2006
Why Rita and Winfried Merkies chose Sabana Westpunt
Growing up as a child we always rented vacation homes during our school holidays on this part of the island, now we had the chance to buy one ourselves.
What makes this Townhouse unique
The fact that we can walk from our unit to the stairs to the ocean almost directly in front of our unit and go for a swim, snorkle or dive.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
My husband and I loved everything about this place. It has and upper and lower decks that faces the ocean. What better way to wake up every morning on your vacation? The location is great- very quiet, but not terribly far from the airport and downtown Willemstad. Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating. We would definitely come back here.
Thank you for being our guests! Indeed it is almost paradise: waking up in the morning with the ocean in front of you.
Upstairs bedroom fan broke in the first 2 hours. Reported it but no one came in the 4 days we were there to fix. Did not know there was no hot water in bathroom sinks. Little dribble of hot water in kitchen sink. Had to boil water to wash dishes to get them clean. Shower had warm water-not hot
Condo was clean. If you have problems climbing stairs, This place is not for u. Steep stairs to bedroom. Little ants in kitchen but normal for the island
Did not use bug spray. Deep woods bug spray for people worked great. View from back windows and patio were great of ocean. Little noisy occasionally since we were by pool. Condos are side by side for each unit. Can b noisy with loud people next door. Fun to see iguanas on rock wall. Check in and out was seamless
Lovely oceanfront Condo
This was our first trip to Curacao and it won't be our last. If you are looking for a party spot this is not for you. However if you are looking for peace and quite and a relaxing atmosphere, this is the place to be. We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo in Westpunt. The owners, Winfried and Rita are wonderful people and were extremely helpful and accommodating. It is a gated community and we always felt safe. Most of the owners and guests are over 50 and very friendly.
There are many beautiful beaches in the area and they are great for diving and snorkeling.
There are limited stores in the area. Make sure you get your groceries in town before making the drive to Westpunt.
We would definitely recommend staying to Marazul Dive resort Condo 1B!!!
Best resort area on the best part of the island!
We are so glad we choose the west side of the island and this sea front apartment. The location provided such easy access to the best beaches, both for beauty and snorkeling. You have the ocean as your backyard- 20 steps from the back porch! The pool made sunset watching perfect. The apartment was so well kept up and comfortable. Great restaurants and access to local culture are literally within walking distance.
Beautiful location, very clean and well maintained apartment, couldn't be better. Highly recommended. We didn't go diving or snorkeling while here, so we can't speak to the underwater experience - but Westpunt is well placed to reach the west-end sites within minutes.
Under water is even nicer than above!
Really enjoyed it! Location was clean, well looked after and exceeded our expectations!
The apartment is located in the western part of the island; the area is rural and quiet with many possibilities for diving, snorkeling, swimming, (mountain) biking, birding and walking. There is a good dive school in Westpunt and a tank depot in our resort should you want to dive with them. Upon request a guide can be arranged for bird watching.
The national park Christoffel is a must see and can be reached within a 20 minute drive from Westpunt for sight seeing, bird watching or climbing mount Christoffel for a beautiful view over the island. Landhuis (Mansion) Savonet is inside the park and is a museum that is worthwhile a visit. The north coast where the waves are breaking on the rocks can be reached within 10 minutes.
Dining can be enjoyed at Misjhe, El Sobrino, Sol foods, Landhuis Sta Martha or Jaanchi. At Westpunt on Sundays you can enjoy a local lunch at the Fishermen's bay of Westpunt or at Shete Boca which can be reached within 10 minutes by car.
