The city center of Punda is roughly fifteen minutes awayGuests love the house:Review 1 My wife & I, along with 3 other couples, stayed at this beautiful home at the beginning of May. Right from the outset of communicating with the owner, I knew we had made the right choice for our vacation. She was so helpful at recommending places to see, stores to shop at, snorkel spots, as well as suggestions for bringing and exchanging money. Upon our arrival, we were met by the property manager who was extremely helpful and not at all pushy. He was there to show us the house and made himself available if we had any questions or concerns about anything. The house itself was more beautiful in person. In fact for the past few years of vacationing around the Caribbean, this was the first time we were anxious to get back and enjoy the house each day. I can not express enough, what a wonderful vacation this turned out to be! I would recommend this home to anyone, any age! Thank you again for a beautiful stay! Ken - Rhode Island - USA Review 2 Curacao is a lovely island, but this house is wonderful....visually beautiful, comfortable, open, conveniently located, private, with a great pool. The evenings outside on the comfortable porch furniture, with the lit pool, the breezes.....we were lucky enough to be there twelve days, so some days we just hung out at the house and the pool. there were eight of us ranging in age from 13 to 64, and the house was big enough so no one felt cramped. The place was spotless, the owner gracious, the property manager more than accomodating - when we asked about pool toys and a hairdryer he bought them and brought them over immediately.....all in all, nothing to complain about. nevertheless, I'd go back in a hearbeat and recommend this house to anyone except those with small kids concerned about easy access to an unfenced-in pool.Review 3"we were extremely pleased with our stay in Villa Royal. Spacious, very well kept modern villa with lots of privacy. It's only a 5 minute walk to beach club Zanibar . The swimming pool is huge. The bedrooms are very comfortable" "Fantastic house on great location"TripAdvisor property ID 3763968...Read more
Very Private Luxury Resort Villa/Pool in Jan Thiel Curacao, Caribbean
Additional Location Information
The house is located 15 mins east of Willemstad in the Jan Thiel area. It has grown to become the most desirable upscale beachfront neighborhood in Curacao. Very laid back residential style but with a full leisure service infrastructure. The house is located 300 yds from the beach. There you'll find two beaches (dive school and catamaran sailing), five restaurants (ranging from beach bar style to fine dining), coffee+gelato shop, new clothing boutiques and a gym. There's a 10 mile (world champion) mountain bike trail starting 200yds from the house. Little under a mile the other way (at the inlet) is a marina with another four restaurants. All the while the house serves as your private oasis in the middle of it all. While I would recommend you go see the island and Willemstad, you can equally spend a private resort style vacation just within the walking radius from the house.

The house was exactly as promised; everything is updated, modern, and very comfortable. There are so many wonderful living spaces inside and out, it was hard to leave for the day, and exciting to return to after a long day on the beach. We spent nearly every evening eating dinner at the spacious dinner table outside, forgoing restaurants since the atmosphere at the house was so lovely. We had 8 adults and 3 children (6, 2 and 1). The house and property were large enough and accommodated us perfectly. Extra cribs, beds and towels were provided for the kids. The house itself was very kid friendly. Access to the pool is via one set of wide, wooden stairs, which made watching the kids and preventing access to the pool quite easy. They also loved the outdoor shower and running around in the large backyard. The pool had a great shallow end for the kids to enjoy, and a very deep-end for the adults. Beautiful shrubbery around the pool and backyard made the area private.
Jolanda, the owner, was extremely easy to contact, responsive to all questions, and very accommodating. The rental management company also provided good service. We had no problems staying within the pre-paid electricity allotment - we did laundry nearly every day, and used the air conditioners every night and in one room for the kids' naps during the day.
We do recommend renting a car to see all of the island's beaches, especially little and big Knip. Cas abou beach was another favorite. That said, Jan Thiel is a great, safe upscale neighborhood with restaurants, stores and a spa within walking distance.
One note - a few reviewers recommended heavy and varied mosquito protection. We definitely agree, especially with kids. We'd also also recommend covering up all fruit on the kitchen counter - we had a few birds fly through the many windows for a snack in the kitchen. :)

Beautiful Modern Luxury Villa set within large secure grounds with exceptional outdoor space including various seating areas and a very large pool. The grounds were extensive and beautifully landscaped, with both shade and sun areas.
Sometimes the inside of the villa became quite warm, however all bedrooms could be cooled down nicely for sleeping with individual air conditioning units. Washer,dryer and a full range of kitchen appliances/utensils were provided for use.
The local property manager was very kind and helpful, and genuinely concerned about our well-being during our stay.
This area of Curacao is quite up-scale, with neighbourhood security and a sandy beach, good for swimming and snorkelling only a 5 - 10 minute walk from the villa. Restaurants are nearby, with a grocery store and other shops about a 10 minute drive from the villa. Suitable for large families or just a couple as we were.
An exceptional location from which to explore Curacao!
