We decided our first covid-era getaway would be to Curacao due to its low covid rates so it was unexpected that the country went into lockdown a few days into our 2 week stay. BUT! If you have to be in lockdown there is quite possibly nowhere better to be! Being part of the larger Blue Bay resort we were essentially in a gated community with the beach and other facilities only used by other residents who were mostly Dutch and of course had to have negative tests to be there. So we felt very safe. The one restaurant was operating on limited hours but worked for us. And yes you could still get a drink served to you on the beach! As well as use the tennis courts and golf. The views from the condo are actually more beautiful than the pictures. We are a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and the place felt very roomy. Very well laid out (a bathroom for each of the 3 bedrooms), a well laid out/well stocked kitchen, wifi... had everything we needed really. Charlotte was a dream, took great care of us as we navigated the evolving lockdown criteria. Cannot say enough good things about this property. So happy to have met you in person Charlotte and you will definitely be seeing us again. To better times soon!

Pictures captured the u it perfectly!
The view is amazing and everything was exactly as presented. The location is wonderful, a stones throw from the beach (which is also wonderful) and about 15 minutes to Punda. The unit has blenders , coffee makers and is fully equipped with pots and pans etc.
Blue Bay community is very safe (it’s gated) and it was very nice to jog through every morning. The grocery store is very close also.
Charlotte was extremely responsive and also proactively checked in to ensure all was well!

Our family of four highly recommends the Ocean Suites!!!

We were fortunate enough to spend one month at Charlotte's place in Blue Bay Curacao.
Both place and location beat any expectations we had by miles! The view is incredible, the bed comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the wifi very fast.
We woke up early every morning to walk 1 minute to the sea and have a sunrise swim after which we had a breakfast on the balcony, while hearing the birds wake up. It is well and truly paradise.
Charlotte's hospitality was also incredible, from the very warm welcome to the communication during the stay.
If you are looking for a perfect place to stay in Curacao, book it before its gone. You wont be disappointed!

We just returned from the wonderful Curacao. This was our first trip and we chose Charlotte's place to spend a week.
What a great decision we made. First off, the apartment is huge. If you are three or four people, you will be lost in there. Three bedrooms, two of which overlooking magnificent ocean. You can see a variety of colorful tropical fish just off the beach, no equipment needed. And sunsets.... to die for.
The place is clean and has every amenity you can imagine. Everything is as described on the website and in other reviews.
Charlotte is a wonderful and a very professional host. Her communication with us was very prompt, all questions were answered in no time. We asked if a safe for our valuables could be installed before our arrival and what do you know, it was !!!
We rented a car so the afternoons were spent in the town and there are so many things to see. We also ate in several restaurants. in MAO, the simple the food the better the quality. In Willemstad we ate at the Iguana restaurant by the water watching Queen Emma bridge open to let ships pass by.
If you want to try authentic local food, you need to travel north to Westpunt to Jaanchies restaurant and order Iguana stew. (tastes just like chicken wings in my opinion). It was one of the most relaxing and memorable vacations we ever had.
We hope to return to one of Charlotte's places and bring our friends to share this wonderful experience in the near future.
Thank you Charlotte!!!
Lena and the family


Dear Charlotte!

Everything went well and we are safe back home!

How you can see, we had also time to relax at the beautiful Villa Summertime!

We enjoyed it so much!

Thanks a lot for your nice words and your taking care of us!

Hopefully we see us again

It was great meeting you, Charlotte! Such a pleasure and we had such a wonderful time staying at The Ocean Suit. Thank you for helping us make the right decision on which was the right place for us considering we travelled with our twin girls and also wanted to celebrate their first birthday in beautiful Curacao. It was perfect in so many ways... and most importantly we all had so much fun. The apartment is spacious, clean and so close to Blue Bay Beach. While on the balcony you literally felt you are on the beach... it is that close. Charlotte has thought of everything you might need and more. Everyone at Blue Bay was friendly and so nice! Thank you, Charlotte, Thank you for having us and we are all looking forward to visiting again! Best, P, K, T, Y & S


Charlotte,

bij deze een welgemeend compliment aan Lotte en ook aan jou voor de goede service en klant gerichtheid. Deze waren boven verwachting. Echt fijn, we voelden ons in goede handen.

Bravo!

Beste groeten, Jan-Joost

Beste Charlotte en co,

Wij zijn al weer een poosje thuis en het leven heeft weer z'n normale loop. 

We kijken, mede dankzij jullie goede service en geweldige huis, terug op een fantastische vakantie met ons gezin. We hebben allemaal van A tot Z genoten!

Nogmaals hartelijk dank voor alle lieve zorgen en we willen in de toekomst zeker nog een keer bij jullie terug te komen!

Met hartelijke groet,

Jos en Joyce

We did enjoy our stay and Charlotte did an outstanding job. I will be glad to submit a positive review today.

A group of 5 of us had the pleasure of staying at this spacious villa for 5 nights. Several people in our party were arriving at different times and different airlines. Charlotte the representative of the management company used by the owners was very helpful in making the check in and check out go extremely smooth. Her group was always available for any needs we may have. The house is located on the best part of the island, you have an amazing beach at the property and you have easy driving distances to the other wonderful beaches on the west end and the Willemstad area to the east. The beds are very comfortable, the pool area has great views along with the large deck. There is always a nice breeze that allows you to open the large sliding glass doors to the main living area during the day. I would recommend this property to any group and I will definitely rent again on my next visit to Curacao.

We just stayed for 4 weeks at our favorite spot at Blue Bay Resort. Charlotte and her team are the best! We've booked through Van Lennep for many years now, and won't use anyone else when planning our annual return visits to Curaçao.

Liebe Charlotte, vielen, herzlichen Dank für einen absoluten Traumurlaub. Alles war absolut perfekt. Danke fürs Abholen am Flughafen und für Deine tollen Tipps über die Insel. Wir haben uns in der Suite mehr als wohl gefühlt. Alles war perfekt. Nachdem wir mit dem Auto die Insel erkundet hatten und auch andere Buchten angesehen haben, waren wir total froh, uns für die Blue Bay entschieden zu haben. Das großzügige Appartement liegt in erster Reihe am Meer und lässt keine Wünsche übrig. Es war herrlich von dem Rauschen des Meeres geweckt zu werden und der ersten Kaffee morgen in aller Stolle auf der Terrasse zu genießen. Außer den Vögeln und dem Meer war es jederzeit absolut ruhig dort. Klimaanlage und WLAN funktionierten jederzeit tadellos. Es kamen keine versteckten Kosten auf uns zu. Die Ausstattung des Appartements ist luxuriös, es fehlte an nichts. Reinigung und Wäschewechsel war auch anstandslos. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und blicken auf einen Traumurlaub zurück. Besonders empfehlenswert ist auch die 5 Sterne Tauchbasis in der Blue Bay unter der Leitung von Mick Bosman. Ich würde Ihm jederzeit wieder meine Familie anvertrauen. Alles in allem können wir guten Gewissens 5 Sterne vergeben! Herzlichen Dank und liebe Grüße. Familie Jäger

La atención del anfitrión fue excelente, inclusive en el periodo previo a la fecha de llegada estuvo atento a ayudarnos a llegar hasta la residencia, apoyarnos con transporte, inclusive nos recogió en el aeropuerto. El apartamento, supero nuestras expectativas, al llegar nos impresiono la maravillosa vista al mar y las instalaciones. Los servicios en la playa son excelentes también. Recomendamos ampliamente este hospedaje y a la Sra. Charlotte como anfitriona. Seguro estamos que nosotros regresaremos nuevamente a este hospedaje en otras vacaciones.

“Wat een geweldige plek om te verblijven!!! De ontvangst was hartelijk en super goed geregeld. De locatie is fantastisch, wellicht niet voor de wilde feestgangers, maar als je op zoek bent naar een plek waar je in luxe en rust kunt genieten van al het moois wat Curacao te bieden heeft dan moet je dit appartement huren. De tussentijdse schoonmaak, was heerlijk en goed geregeld. Bedden, airco en keuken waren geweldig en inrichting is gewoon heel mooi! Ik zou nu al weer terugwillen! Dus Charlotte tot gauw!”

Lotte Livestro

Mocht u overwegen om een verblijf in dit appartement te boeken en wilt u:

Een geweldig uitzicht vanaf uw balkon, een ruim balkon met voldoende privacy en goede zitcomfort, Wilt u een keuken welke van alle gemakken is voorzien, Restaurants op loopafstand, Winkel met bijna alle artikelen welke in Nederland ook te verkrijgen zijn, Strand met gratis ligbedden, Veilig voor kinderen, Vriendelijke mensen?

Neem gerust contact op met Charlotte een open, spontane vrouw die je vanaf het eerste mail contact tot bij aankomst en bij vertrek je uiterst vakkundig begeleidt.

FANTASTISCH !!!

Wat een top appartement! Super uitzicht! Vanaf het moment dat je binnenkomt, als wel vanaf het ruime terras. Met 6 personen hier twee weken mogen doorbrengen, wat met 3 slaapkamers en 3 volledig uitgeruste badkamers, een feest is. De zeer ruime boven slaapkamer beschikt ook nog over een eigen balkon. De ook al zeer ruime open keuken heeft alles, van oven/magnetron, elektrisch kookfornuis, toaster, grote koelkast, vaatwasser, noem maar op, het is er! Ook erg handig een eigen wasmachine en droger, maar let op het stroomverbruik....

Ook de horeca 'beneden' is in de lift. De afgelopen jaren maakte we het nogal eens mee dat hier het "let op, gast dreigt met order" virus heerste.

Zelf geen gebruik van gemaakt, maar op verzoek geef je je boodschappenlijstje door en je wijntje staat bij aankomst al lekker gekoeld op je te wachten! 

En mocht je een golf liefhebber zijn, de baan ligt op loopafstand. Met de auto in tien minuten naar Willemstad, 20 minuten naar Mambo Boulevard en 30 minuten naar Jan Thiel, ideaal! Het net geopende winkelcentum Sambil ligt om de hoek. Kortom, zoals al vermeld, FANTASTISCH!

Perfect view! Amazing resort.

This was our 3rd trip to the island and I am super excited that we found this property. The views are amazing and the unit is very spacious and clean. Charlotte was very helpful in answering questions and tending to our wishes. The children had a blast and would alternate between the pool (next to the building) and the beach, while the adults enjoyed a drink on the balcony and watched the sunset. Blue Bay resort is very centrally located and the restaurants in the resort are great as well.  We also managed to spend a morning playing golf. This is a very suitable unit for 2 families and I would definitely recommend this place. We will certainly be back!

***breathtaking views*** we absolutely LOVED Charlotte’s place! Everything was as described - except for the view..the photos did not do it justice - it was MUCH BETTER THAN ADVERTISED!

We loved waking up to this gorgeous view and spent most of our time either on the beach or on the balcony.
Charlotte is very accommodating and extremely easy to communicate with!
The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, including a nespresso machine, which made us feel right at home! We would absolutely stay here again and recommend to all our friends!

This place exceeded our expectations! Five stars!! *****


Spectacular Beachfront Paradis !!

Spectacular Beachfront Paradise!

My husband and I were looking for a special place to honeymoon. We were extremely pleased to arrive and see the condo is more beautiful than any picture can capture.

The Ocean Suite is a spectacular condo! An easy drive from the airport. About a ten minutes drive.

We were met by Charlotte who thoughtfully had everything ready, including champaign for us!

What a delight to walk into a spectacular vacation paradise setting. 

The condo has a GREAT view, most of the ocean and beach. 

The living area opens widely to a private covered balcony. The sunsets were amazing. 

We explored local beaches and restaurants, went snorkeling at Go West Dive.. And took a sunset cruise that passed right by our condo and Blue Bay.

Memories to last a lifetime. We would love to come back again and again.

We stayed in Charlotte's Ocean Suite 5 Condo. We arrived in Curacao during the height of the Covid19 outbreak. The borders and all its businesses were closed 2 days into our vacation like the US and many other countries. With that being said I am so glad we were in this condo on this resort. It was one of the only beaches open in the area with 2 restaurants that were open for take out. The scenery from the condo was beautiful. Right on Blue Bay Beach with the most beautiful sunsets. I think we lived on the balcony every night with plenty of room for 6 people very comfortably. The condo was fully stocked which was a good thing because we had to eat dinner there every night. There was a grocery store a mile down the road so we were never with out food to cook. The beach was beautiful and the snorkeling was awesome. You can just walk right in off the beach and snorkel. They have a dive shop right there and divers walk right in and dive the wall that drops off abruptly just outside the beach area. Lots of different and beautiful species to be seen. We even saw a sea turtle. I have been on snorkeling excursions over the years that were not as nice as this. This resort has pretty much everything that you need especially when you are pretty much confined to it. We were able to get out to one of the national parks and see the north coast that was amazing. I would love to return to Curacao one day so that I may see the island the way we wanted to see it and be able to tour many of the other beaches and restaurants that are there. I would definitely return to Charlotte's place.

The pictures do not do this place justice! I was in awe of the beautiful view on the terrace. The place itself was sparkling clean, spacious, and the kitchen has all of the appliances you may need on your trip (and more). The beach was never too crowded and had amazing staff. If you are looking to socialize or be secluded on the beach there is a place for you! Charlotte is an amazing host and provided us with quick responses to questions and even a folder including all the information you may need while on the island along with her recommendations of places to see and restaurants to visit. So many small details were added to the place to make our experience even better! Amazing place and host. Hoping to stay again in the future!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ocean suite! The view was spectacular.

It had all the amenities you need and was very clean. The snorkeling at the beach can’t be beat! We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Curacao is officially our favorite Caribbean destination! We've experienced at least 10 island destinations and you cannot match the accessibility, beauty, variety of beaches, golf and diversity of cultures in Curacao. This location, in particular, was spectacular for its view of the ocean, its access to a gorgeous beach and multiple restaurants (within close walking distance), and its practical layout for multiple couples or families (3 ensuite baths). We also appreciated its location in the resort/condo/golf community. Charlotte communicated instructions perfectly and met us upon arrival. She responded quickly to any questions we had, resolving issues quickly and to our satisfaction. We would recommend this convenient property to anyone seeking a relaxing stay in Curacao!

Dankjewel Charlotte, wij hebben enorm genoten van onze tijd op Curacao. Het huis en dat uitzicht, echt geweldig !!!en de auto huur was prima geregeld. Een aanrader voor iedereen!! Groetjes van de hele familie Hekkelman

TOP ! verblijf gehad.

Sandra Jansen

Graag wil ik iedereen laten weten wat een geweldige service Charlotte ons heeft gegeven!!

Helaas kwamen de kinderen en ik zonder koffers aan op Curacao en daar stond Charlotte klaar om ons naar een winkelcentrum te rijden voor de aankoop van zwemkleding en andere boodschappen!!!

Verder heeft zij prima voor ons gezorgd en konden wij haar te allen tijden bereiken met vragen!! De huizen die zij verhuren zijn echt helemaal super en liggen op een prachtige locatie!!!!

Echt een topservice!!!!!!

Eind november hebben wij mogen vertoeven in de Vila Creole, dit is echt een aanrader zo een geweldige stek en kijken op een geweldige vakantie terug, grtz Anja, Monique, Cor en Marcel.

Hallo Charlotte,

Wij zijn donderdagmorgen ruimschoots voor schema-tijd op een regenachtig Schiphol geland. Wat een verschil met Curacao!

Wij hebben 2 uitstekende vakantiemaanden op Curacao doorgebracht.

Tot slot willen wij jou en jouw mensen hartelijk danken voor de ontvangst op Curacao, de service verlening, schoonmaken van de pool en de villa's, de adviezen m.b.t. de huur van de auto en niet te vergeten de correspondentie die we hebben gevoerd voordat wij überhaupt voet op vaste bodem hadden gezet op Bonaire en Curacao.

Samengevat: UITSTEKEND!!! 

Het is zeker onze bedoeling om de komende winter en mogelijk iets langer terug te keren naar Curacao.

Vriendelijke groet vanuit een regenachtig Nederland (vandaag al 15.6 mm!!!),

Loekie en Piet 

Hallo mevrouw van Lennep/ Beste Charlotte,

We hebben zo genoten in Villa La Creole en zijn vastbesloten om terug te komen!

Ook jullie aandacht, warmte en service hebben positief bijgedragen aan onze vakantie, Zo heerlijk dat we geen omkijken hadden naar auto ophalen, auto inleveren, papierwerk etc. En dan ook nog voor de deur afgeleverd worden. Perfect!

Onze hartelijke dank daarvoor!

Rest ons voor nu jullie een heel fijne zonnige kerst toe te wensen en een liefdevol 2017!

Lieve groet,

José  

Net terug in Nederland, super vakantie gehad. Bedankt Charlotte voor de geweldige lokatie en goede zorgen, tot snel namens de gehele kudde :-)

Michiel Vermeulen
