What to look for when renting a vacation villa on Curacao?
It will not have escaped your attention, but in recent years private holiday accommodation has become very popular in Curacao. Spread throughout the island there are many types and sizes, ranging from a simple apartment to luxury villas. Many beautiful holiday homes can be found on the southeastern part of the island, in the districts of Vista Royal, Jan Thiel, Cas Grandi and Jan Sofat. Not entirely coincidentally close to the Caracasbaai beach, Director’s bay and Jan Thiel beach.
Holiday homes can be rented through various organizations such as Airbnb, HomeAway, Tripadvisor, Holiday Rentals Curacao and Dream Rentals Curacao. Of course you can usually also rent directly through the owner’s website, which is often the most economical option.
Points of attention when comparing accommodations are, in addition to the price and the number of people who can stay there, the location and proximity to beaches, restaurants and recreational opportunities. The construction of the house is not unimportant, high ceilings, covered terraces and a good location on the wind ensure that it stays nice and cool in the house and that you are not confronted with high energy costs due to the constant use of air conditioning.
A big advantage of a private holiday home compared to an apartment or a bungalow in a holiday park is often the amount of space, not only from the house itself, but also from the garden, for example. There is also often more privacy and you have access to a private swimming pool.
Renting a holiday villa is most advantageous if you stay with a full occupancy, because there is almost always a basic price including a limited number of people. The cost per person therefore decreases as you stay with more people. Even if you stay longer, it becomes cheaper because the flight takes a significant part of the holiday budget.
Of course Villa Carpe Diem Curacao is also a holiday home that has all these benefits!
