Description from the owner
Something different - a small rustic private house with beautiful hills and a great beach in the back yard. With a shaded elevated deck, a stargazing patio, and an outdoor dining area, the house is set up for guests who like to spend time outdoors. Old style shuttered windows (no glass, but they do have insect screens) allow the house to be cooled by the trade winds. Following the tradition of most houses on the island, Kampung Lagun has security bars on windows and doors. If you are an independent traveler with a sense of adventure who likes being outdoors, and who wants to experience Curacao in a local neighborhood setting, Kampung Lagun ha...Read more
KAMPUNG LAGUN small private house, great beach
Additional Location Information
Kampung Lagun is in the beach community of Lagun, located in the rural 'Westpunt' region of the island. Westpunt is where Curaçaoans like to go on weekends to be with friends, have barbeques and parties, and go to beaches. This is reflected in the houses closest to Kampung Lagun: two are family residences, one is a family week-end house, and the other two are week-end rentals for locals.
We have been coming to Kampung Lagun since 2005. During the week the neighborhood is usually very quiet. On the weekends there will probably be something going on - maybe a wedding, a birthday party, or an occasional loud Caribbean style party with lots of people. Of course, weekends can also be very quiet. Whatever it is, you can be sure that it will be a 100% Curaçaoan experience.
Because of the natural setting, you will see a lot of birds, lizards, and even iguanas. But it is really the beach that makes the location great. The beach behind the house is called Playa Jeremi, and is a local beach. It is wonderful for swimming, snorkeling, and SCUBA diving (there is a SCUBA center a two-minute drive from the house). The beach is a one-minute walk from the house, and you walk through the ‘mondi’ on an ancient fisherman's trail to get there - it is really cool. Other things in the area: several beaches, Landhuises, restaurants, and Kristoffel Park. There is a guest binder in the house with a good list of things you can do.
Kampung Lagun is a private house on a large fenced lot, with gardens and natural vegetation. It is a 40 minute drive from the airport, and a 50 minute drive to Willemstad, the main city. We recommend that guests rent a car, although it is possible to get to major locations using local busses; taxis are not readily available.
