About our home

Our family house is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood called Brakkeput About, east of Willemstad. It is situated on top of a hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea and was finalized in 2006. Due to its location there is always a nice breeze blowing through, even in the hottest months of the year. Popular beaches, dive schools, a modern high tech gym, various low- and high end restaurants as well as local and international supermarkets are just 5 minutes away. Historic downtown Willemstad and a beautiful 18 hole golf course are 15 minutes away.

When you enter the front door of this typical tropical style house, you walk straight into the living area, with its high ceiling. The living room is connected to a large covered upstairs porch with a huge dinner table and two seating areas. The house has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a guest toilet. All bedrooms have airconditioning. The open kitchen with a bar is very inviting and fully kitted out. It is connect to the porch as well as to the inside living area. There are two winding staircases, one on the inside and one on the outside.

The inside staircase leads to the two downstairs rooms, one of which is a playroom. The other is a TV room, which easily converts into a bedroom with a double pull out sofa.

The outside staircase leads straight to the pool with hot tub and outside kitchen which was recently renewed. The outside kitchen is kitted out with a large gas BBQ, hotplate, dishwasher, fridge, pizza oven, wok burner and charcoal BBQ. The newly put up gazebo offers plenty of shade during the day.
The entire area is surrounded by a nice tropical garden with palm trees, bougainvilleas, various jasmine varieties and orchids.

The house and garden are perfectly catered for families with children. Since we ave four of our own, the house is pretty child proof. There are plenty of books and movies and toys for various ages, including a real size fussball table. Outside we have a play tower with slide and swings, and a tree house.
Please be advised that there is NO pool fence though.

If you decide to come with parties larger than 8, there is a separate guest house which sleeps 2, with a bathroom, small kitchen and private porch.

We have a housekeeper and we have two dogs, Shadow and Daisy. Although they might look intimidating, they are absolutely great family dogs and, due to the climate, only stay outside. In addition, we have a few fishes and a water turtle. All love attention from anyone visiting.
