The Tropical Villa is a luxury and charming detached colonial villa for 10 persons (and a small child) with a large private pool in a very large walled tropical garden. The authentic Tropical villa offers all the ingredients for a luxury, sunny and relaxing holiday. You always rent the entire villa, there will be no other guests in the villa or on the property so you can enjoy absolute privacy. The villa is equipped with all the comforts you need and are used to at home. The Tropical Villa is located in a leafy and peaceful village called Julianadorp, a colonial villa quarter centrally located on Curaçao. The specially designed tropical homes with their many bay windows, wide eaves and very generous sizes are typical for colonial Julianadorp. The ‘Dutch Tropics’ is a good nickname for Julianadorp: the great colonial villas on very large lots to the broad green boulevards breathe the atmosphere of bygone times. The Tropical Villa exudes the atmosphere of colonial times but is equipped with all modern comforts and luxury.
Privacy en luxury
The Tropical Villa is large detached villa that lies on a spacious walled plot of more than 2000 m2. In the large beautifully landscaped tropical garden with palm trees and tropical plants you can enjoy complete privacy in the garden as well as at the pool. The Tropical villa is situated on a hill so you can always enjoy a refreshing breeze while sunbathing at the pool and gazing at the Curaçao hill side. This very spacious, colonial villa offers all the contemporary luxury and privacy to make your Curaçao holiday an unforgettable one.
Villa and terraces
The Tropical villa is constructed in a way that there is always a refreshing wind blowing through the House, making the temperature in the living- and bedrooms always pleasant (in addition all rooms are equipped with air conditioning and a fan). Due to the tropical climate in Curaçao, however, people mostly live outside. So you can have a family breakfast on the large front porch of the villa or lounge with a drink in the shadow on the very spacious back porch. Enjoy the sun on the sun loungers by the private pool (10 x 5 meters), kick the ball around or play beach ball and badminton on the large lawn or relax and read a book in the shade of the old tropical trees. Have a barbecue and food fest in the outdoor kitchen and gather at the large dining table to enjoy a home grilled meal or take the car (the Tropical villa has its own car, available for rent) and go out, it’s always happy hour somewhere on the island and there is a large choice of fine restaurants.
Central location on Curaçao
The Tropical villa in Julianadorp is a 5 minute drive from the airport and located right in the centre of the island, so you are never far away from the main attractions of Curaçao. Whether you’ll take the car and go shopping in historical Willemstad (10 minute drive) or visit a different tropical beach every day (Blue Bay Beach and Golf Course is only a stones throw away) to go diving, snorkelling or sunbathing. The Tropical Villa will always offer you a great place to come home to after a sunny day. Or just stay and relax at the villa all day, stock up at the largest supermarket on the island (2 minute drive), get your favuorite snacks en drinks, put on some music and just stay at ‘home’ by the pool with all the luxury you’ll need within armsreach because that too is vacation. In short, a stay in the Tropical villa is a must for anyone who wants to combine luxury, tranquillity and privacy with all the vibrant things that Curaçao has to offer!

The Tropical Villa has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and 1 half bathroom where you can enjoy a luxury Caribbean vacation with 10 persons and a small child or baby.

Additional Location Information
The Tropical Villa is situated in the leafy and quiet colonial villa district called Julianadorp. Julianadorp is a beautiful, green residential area just west of Otrobanda and within a stone’s throw of Piscadera. Julianadorp is centrally located on the island, the nearest beach (Blue Bay) is within 5 minutes, it is 5 minutes (by car) from Hato Airport and only 10 minutes from Willemstad and all the restaurants and 2 minutes from the largest supermarket on the island. The villa is very close to the most beautiful beaches and best snorkelling and diving spots but not all activities are concentrated in and around the water on Curaçao. If you like to play golf then you can go to the Blue Bay Golf Course (5 minute drive) where you’ll find a an 18 hole Golf Course.
When you are staying at the Tropical Villa you can rent a car that belongs to the villa. After a long flight you need not stand in line at a car rental company at the airport, you just take a taxi to the villa and there is a large (seats 5 adults comfortably) white Ford Explorer automatic with air conditioning (and car seat) waiting for you on the driveway. No hassle with paperwork and unexpected additional insurance costs, you can book the car directly with the Tropical Villa for a very favourable price.

Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve dans cette belle maison. Très bien placée, à 2 mn d'un super marché, proche des artères principales menant aux plages et au centre ville de Willenstad, cette maison offre un grand confort auquel s'ajoute un carbet avec un BBC tout ça au bord d'une belle piscine. L'endroit est trés calme et permet de passer des vacances au calme.
C'est notre 2ème séjour dans cette maison et nous espérons y revenir bientôt.
Merci à Marcel et Sjaak pour leur accueil.

Wow! We were referred to this house by friends that stayed there and they loved it now we know why, the house is very spacious, and great value for money. The pool is great and private no one can see in the pool area, and at night the pool swimming is also fun with the lights and privacy!!! Relaxing all day, listening to music, dining in or out at night whatever we would feel like, great restaurants close by, it was a perfect holiday!!! Just what we needed: the ideal tropical escape to relax & unwind.

A great villa with a very nice swimmingpool. There is a nice garden around the house. There is for each one a nice spot in or out the sun. The service was oké. Both kitchens are very nice and have everything you want. If you want a quiet day at the pool it is the perfect place to be. There are also nice beaches and restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Where to begin!!! The property is beautiful, it has that special colonial feel to it, like you are on a plantation. The villa is a perfect location on the island. We rented their car, but found ourselves staying at the house and at the pool most days. When we did go to the beach we snorkeled with the snorkel gear that was available at the villa. The reefs can be reached right from the beach and the variety of fish, coral, and sponges were amazing! The villa is very well equipped and well maintained. Both the owner and the property manager made sure that our every need was taken care of. Excellent quality food and wine are available at the Centrum supermarket just down the road. Stocking the fridge for a BBQ so that we could enjoy the cool breeze and watch the kids play in the pool while cooking and sipping wine. The bedrooms all have comfortable beds and the bathrooms have soft towels. After a day in the sun the beds are that good that it will make sure you get a good night rest. We would gladly rent this villa again. It is just perfect for families, not one but two or even three! So we highly recommend it!!!

This is truly a tropical paradise. We felt very welcome there was a chilled botle of wine as a welcome present. The house is great, and the outdoors is even better. It was so relaxing, we had everything we needed and more! The outdoor kitchen is perfect for the tropics, we grilled a big juicy steak every night and the men did the cooking for a change! The only problem was that we were only there for a long weekend, next time we´ll spend at least two weeks here. Counting the days till the summer holliday we booked the Tropical Villa already.
"Beautiful colonial villa, great location, fantastic for families"

We spent a 10 day holiday with two families of 4 at the Tropical Villa and it was fantastic!
The house is right in the center of the island, very close to the beach and Golf court of Blue Bay, and on your way from an to the beach and the golf course there is big supermarket (not expensive) that has everything you need (great steaks!). The location is very good, close to the airport (we took a taxi to the house and rented the car provide with the villa which was waiting for us on the driveway) and close to all the best beaches in the west, true tropical paradises nothing like the overly crowded beaches in the very touristic Jan Thiel area. The house is a beautiful colonial house with a tastefully decorated living, modern kitchen and big bedrooms and good beds but because of the weather the best parts are the outside areas. Lovely porches and terraces with good views on the pool so you can watch the children playing (they literally lived in the pool and preferred it over the beach). The garden is beautiful with palm trees and fully walled with a gate so the children can run around freely and you have maximum privacy. The kitchen in the house had everything we needed and more but we actually only used the outdoor kitchen and had great sunset barbecues at the pool.
We advise everyone to rent a car to see everything on the island and bring or buy mosquito repellent and sun protection.
Next year we'll bring the grand parents to meet Marcel and Sjaak, the managers because they are the best! They did everything to make us comfortable and gave us great restaurant tips. We had a great holiday and can't wait to go again!
