We returned last week from another wonderful time spent in the Pitts' townhouse.
If you are looking for nightlife, shopping, activities for the kids, etc. stay in, or near, Willemstad. But if you want peace and quiet, a sleepy fishing village (with several restaurants in it) and fantastic diving and snorkelling right there, as well as many beaches close by to choose from, go to Westpunt. And Marazul is the place to stay....a very well kept, attractively landscaped, friendly, safe, gated community of privately owned homes, right on a cliff overlooking the ocean, with steps down to the sea. There is a lovely pool too with plenty of chairs to lounge on and two large gazebos for shade. The friendly manager, René, comes by your house every morning to make sure everything is OK and is always available for help, advice and directions.After many trips to nice, but poorly equipped, properties we were delighted to find a place that has everything we could possibly need. Screens everywhere to keep out the occasional pesky mosquito (it's a very windy area so mosquitoes are not a big problem) Both showers and the kitchen sink have hot water - unusual and very nice to have. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. There is a large cooler for your grocery trips - or to take to the beach if you want a picnic lunch. There are collapsible chairs to take to the beaches and the upstairs terrace has two Adirondack chairs perfect for reading in. The house is attractive, colourful and comfortable. The bed is as comfortable as our one at home and how often can you say that?!! (The downstairs futon makes a comfortable bed too)
Steve and Linda are very friendly and helpful and quick to answer any questions you may have. The first time we stayed they gave us lots of printed information about where to shop, where to eat, good snorkelling spots, local beaches and places of interest to go to. All in all, it's the perfect place to stay for a peaceful, relaxing time and marvellous underwater e
