It all begins and ends right here, at Surrender Villa. If you're seeking complete privacy and tranquility in an extraordinarily beautiful setting with wonderful accommodations in an off the beaten path location, look no further. Our family's mediterranean-style, one-story privately owned villa was completed in 2011 and rests upon the seaside cliffs in Westpunt, a small village in the north of Curacao. Surrender is at the western most point of the island making it the perfect place to take in the magnificent Caribbean sunsets. The villa is situated in a gated community on a spacious, private 1.5 acres and was built for entertaining. It is the perfect place to come with family and friends. “Surrender” to the blue sea, the warm sunny days and the starry nights.
Once you arrive at the end of our courtyard, you'll travel down the long private driveway where you'll glimpse beautiful flowering plants native to the island. The private, spacious, architecturally landscaped grounds feature a small grove of shade trees with sitting area, a beautiful stairway carved into the cliffs leading down to the ocean, a cliff diving platform, and rock walls along the property lines. There's even a heavy duty, aluminum flagpole to fly your favorite flag!!
The villa's interior might best be described as 5,000 square feet of casual elegance in a spectacular setting that takes full advantage of the tropical beauty that is the island of Curacao. A very large open living area encompasses the kitchen, dining room and living room. Thirty-foot, fully retractable doors open to the cliff side terrace and state-of-the-art infinity pool with nothing standing between you and the Caribbean.
Sleeping accommodations include an enormous master bedroom suite with a separate sitting room, a large private bathroom, a walk in closet, and private doors to the terrace. There are three other generously-sized bedrooms and a fourth smaller room that may be used for a nanny, cook, or extra guest. All bedrooms have ocean views. There are three additional full bathrooms. The family room also features two queen-size pullout sofa beds.

Additional Location Information
Surrender is located on the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean at the western most point of the island. The setting is secluded and private. The turquoise waters can be accessed from either a diving platform built into the cliff (for the adventurous) or via a stone staircase carved into the cliff that leads right down to the sea. White sandy swimming beaches and access to world class scuba diving and snorkeling are mere minutes away near the small village of Westpunt.

This magical island is full of little gems just waiting to be discovered.

Our family recently returned from a wonderful stay at Surrender. The property, house and view are amazing; the pictures honestly aren’t able to do them justice. The house is located at the end of the Kura Hulanda Lodge Property, with access through a manned, gated entrance which provides a nice added sense of security and privacy.
The house itself is beautifully built with high-end finishes throughout. Together with the fully stocked kitchen (complete with a built-in Nepresso machine), general supplies provided, infinity pool, stairs down the cliff to the ocean, and one of the most amazing, serene views, you may not want to leave the property. However, do try to pull yourself away as there are many unique beaches and activities in the area. Some of our favorite beaches included Little Knip, Playa Lagun (beautiful sunsets!), and Boka Santu Pretu. Also, if you are up for a bit of a hike and more amazing views, Mt Cristoffel was a pleasant surprise (while a bit difficult, even our 6 year old made it to the top with some help).
If you like a relaxed, less touristy area to explore and discover, this side of Curacao is an excellent choice. You won’t find a more perfect place to call home while you’re there (just make sure you pick up some groceries and gas on your way out of town toward the West End).
Thanks for the kind words! They were also helpful words that I know will help other families contemplating a visit to Curacao. We loved the photos from your stay at Surrender and were mightily impressed by your cliff diving daring! You're welcome back anytime! Thanks for being such lovely guests.

Surrender is truly a little piece of paradise! We had a group of about 6 girls and it was perfectly accommodating. With such a large group, we utilized the kitchen almost every day. Everything was modern and clean, the best part was the built in Nespresso machine. My mornings consisted of drinking coffee, sitting on the patio, looking out at a completely unobstructed view of the ocean. Between the cliff diving and local restaurants, there was plenty to see and do but some of my favorite memories were at the house itself, cooking out on the grill, looking out at what seemed to be an endless ocean. The property is beautifully maintained, with gorgeous landscaping and an amazing backyard. The infinity pool and surrounding patio is tranquil and relaxing, again with amazing views of the ocean everywhere you look! If you're looking for a 5 star escape from the every day hustle & bustle, this is the place. Thank you for such a wonderful experience, I will be coming back soon!
Thanks so much for the glowing review. Surrender has always seemed like the perfect place to enjoy friends or family on a uniquely magical island. We usually have to drag ourselves back to the States!

Surrender Villa offers the ideal opportunity for anyone seeking a luxurious respite from civilization. The Villa sits atop a windswept cliff at the Western most point of the Island. The ocean is your vast and unencumbered backyard. Sunsets can be enjoyed from the outdoor patio, the infinity pool or the comfort of the plush couch in the central living room. During our stay, there were no bugs, no humidity, no distractions. The layout of the Villa, spread out on a single floor, encourages communal interaction while also affording privacy and solitude. The kitchen is well equipped and is complimented by a patio grilling area. With the availability of having fish caught that day delivered to the Villa, there was no reason to seek out local restaurants.
It is rare to truly experience a hassle free vacation but my stay at the Villa was just that. I look forward to returning soon.
Thanks for the great review. Surrender was designed to be just that "a luxurious respite from civilization." We're glad you agree.

“The perfect house on the most magical island”

I stayed with some friends and all I can say is that vacation was simply unforgettable! The house was perfect, spacious, inspiring and most comfortable. It is located alone on a magnificent cliff overlooking pristine wide ocean, with a few spots from where we took big jumps to the water and there is also great walking stairs leading down the cliff into the water. There was also a lovely pool and a huge deck looking at the ocean. We cooked in the house and the kitchen was huge, modern and very well equipped. Every hour of the day felt magically different. The house was well prepared when we arrived and the owner of the house made sure we had all information pertaining to practical aspects on the island and related to the house. It was one of my best vacations ever and i plan on having my next vacation there again in the near future.
We're so happy you enjoyed yourself! We think it's a magical spot as well.

Wow! My stay at Surrender Villa marked my first time visiting Curaçao. Usually when I travel, I am quite antsy. I want to explore the entire area; bike, hike, sample the local restaurants, etc. At Surrender Villa, I never wanted to leave the property. My mornings began by joyously preparing breakfasts in the spacious, inviting kitchen, while graced by the soothing trade winds. Whether dining inside or outside, the views were mesmerizing. Words cannot adequately describe the exhilaration I experienced when diving off the ten foot cliff, and jumping from the 28 foot cliff (or call it 30, if you want) into the Caribbean Sea. The feeling of having the ocean to myself as I watched the property from the sea felt other-worldly. One of my favorite times was late evening, around sunset. Enjoying a final swim in the ocean, or desalinizing in the pool while the sun meditatively drifted onto the horizon, was unforgettable. The remote location on the island, away from ambient light, allowed for optimum stargazing upon nightfall. My five days at Surrender Villa felt timeless. It is aptly named, as I completely surrendered any concerns or worries that I typically carry in my day-to-day life. Additionally, I felt more spiritually and emotionally open to life and to others during this transformative vacation.
