Description

The space

Our lovely full equipped studio, on the second floor has a breathtaking view over the sea. Drink your coffee outside each morning enjoying the ships and boats passing by or listening to the sound of the sea. You can enjoy sea life at the fullest.
St. Michiel is one of Curacao’s best dive spots. A perfect location for diving and snorkeling. There are dive schools and beaches within walking distance. From your patio you have direct access to the sea. We also live on the premises so we are able to assist you at any time. St. Michiel is a small fisherman village with very friendly people. We invite you to spend your vacation with us. You will definitely love it.

Guest access

Guest have a private balcony, direct access to the sea, parking inside. There is an additional general sitting area which is shared with other guests.

Interaction with guests

We will be present during the stay. Our doors will be open for a chat, but our guests have their full privacy during their stay. We will be there when they need it.

The neighbourhood

Boca St. Michiel is a small fisherman village. Not touristic. During weekdays it is very quiet. You will not see many people on the 2 public beaches in the vicinity. Mostly divers during week days. During weekends there are more families and kids at the beach. You will not see often people walking around in the vicinity. Only in the center of St. Michiel. That is about 20 minutes walk from our location. There are no shops in the vicinity. Only one or two small restaurants which are open on specific days.

Getting around

We are about 15 walk away from a public bus stop. The best thing is to rent a car if you want to explore the island. We can provide information or contact details of a taxi service or car rental.

Other things to note

The remote location may not be suitable for those who want to walk around in the vicinity. There is very little to do in the neighborhood. Except diving, snorkeling swimming and fishing. The best way is to rent a car and visit other parts of the island. The good thing is that you are about 20 minutes away from both sides of the island. The beaches and the downtown area.

My girlfriend and I spent a wonderful week at Evita's upstairs studio apartment (Apt A). The view towards the water was breathtaking, the water itself was refreshing and clear with a great reef just a little swim out. The weather was a balmy 80, but a constant breeze kept us cool--we kept the windows open almost the whole time. We especially enjoyed sitting out in the open-air covered area in the mornings. Evita and Chief are wonderful, welcoming, and attentive hosts. Be sure to check out the "Waterfront Terrace" (a.k.a "Patrick's") just a few blocks north of Evita's place. You won't find it on any maps, but it's best fish on the island. Note that their hours are a bit unpredictable.

Evita and Chief are lovely hosts and the studio is exactly as promised, cosy with everything you need. As they say, you have to drive just about anywhere, but you're right in the middle of the island so it's easy enough to get to either end and you're close to Centrum, a good grocery store. We snorkelled in a bunch of different spots during our trip and the coral we saw just out the back gate here was the best. Also lots of hermit crabs!

Evita did welcome us when we arrived. The studio is perfect and as described in the pictures. I loved the view on the ocean. Very recommendable if you are looking for a relaxed and quiet place close enough to Willemstad and to the nice beaches on the west of Curacao.

In one word: it was perfect! Everything was nice and clean. There was everything we needed at the apartment. It was very quiet and relaxing. The sea view from our balcony and the private beach were absolutely beautiful! Furthermore there's a reef in front of the house - which is perfect for divers. All diving equipment can be rented at the (german) diving station in the neighborhood (1 min. by car). Evita and her Husband are really nice persons. They always tried to help us and gave us a lot of useful information. We enjoyed the Trip so much and we will come back soon! ️️️️️

I have to do some maintenance. We already help her with an accommodation at the sea within walking distance from our place. She is happy and is waiting for her vacation days in Curacao.

We had a fantastic stay at Evitas place! It is as amazing as you can see on the pictures, if not better :-) We loved the appartement, the outside area and the views! Evita and Chief are great hosts, we felt very welcomed and didn't miss a single thing. I have stayed in many places all over the world, but Evitas place is a treasure! I can highly recommend to stay here if you are looking for a very relaxing, comfortable and beautiful vacation :-)

So, what can we say? Just a perfect stay! If you have the chance to book here, don’t think twice…. We have been staying here end of April 2016 (two weeks). First the location Evita and Chief provide is very clean, warm arranged, fully equipped and in our opinion perfect to have a good time @ Curacao. Just for example there is a cleaning maid coming once a week (or also when you need it, just talk to the hosts). Apart from the equipment listed in airbnb there are also towels provided, a first aid kit, fast wifi, a barbecue you can freely use, a washing mashine and except the one in your bathroom also a shower just at the entrance at your private beach, to just list a few. The kitchen in our room was also fully equiped, the fridge/freezer is big one and is fast cooling, the bed is very comfortable and big. There is another kitchen outside to fry some fish, if you want to. Last not least there is the wonderful oceanview in the top apartment, plus five windows and two doors, making the aircon not necessary at all and giving a nice breeze. The location is excatly like the pictures here on airbnb show it. Almost every day we were freediving and snorkeling in the „private reef“ we call it, it is just awesome! We were almost alone at the beach, there is only one direct neighbour sharing the same part of the beach. In the reef we saw rays, once also a turtle, uncountable types of fishes, eels, lots of corals, starfishes, squids, crabs, and also some lionfishes (for those who want to do spearfishing, it’s allowed to spear only lionfish on Curacao, but be very carefull!). It’s really crowded, but with underwater species, not with human (once a day there is a diving boat arriving, so maybe you‘ll see two or three divers under water, sometimes another snorkeler, but that‘s it). Most of the time you are on your own. But more than locational issues we want to point out that the two hosts Evita and Chief and also the way they act and treat the guests are absolutely oustanding in a very positive way! Beside the giving of any information and help you‘ll need at any time it was always a pleasure simply hanging out with them, as on smalltalk or on deep discussions. Both of them are open minded, very friendly and warm hearted, they laugh a lot and as far as we can say treat all creatures with respect. As the doorsign announces: come in as a guest, leave as a friend… Dear Evita and Chief, it really was a pleasure meeting you guys. We had a wonderful time on Curacao, in particular because we were staying at yours. Thank you very much for making our holiday a very special one. All the best wishes for you, God bless! If you ever come to Berlin, please let us know.

God bless you.

I love to see and feel the sun.

I love spending time with friends and family, but I also love to be alone or with a good book. Travel and see different places and cultures is a top priority. Talking about my island is my passion. Working on the fulfillment of my dreams or the dreams of others makes me happy. I also spent time frequently enjoying sea life.

Renting rooms is a different and great experience. Meeting new people with different cultures from different parts of the world is great. I want my guests to feel at home and have a wonderful stay. If they need assistance we will always be there to help.

When I travel I don't need many things, a good, clean and safe place to stay in a nice environment. It Is very important for me to be able to connect to the past and nature. My objective is to see historic places, read about their history, see impressive man made buildings and cities and spent time in beautiful nature environments.
