About this cottage

Bonbini!


2022 is the year of recharging! Enjoy your sunsets from a private cliff over the sea! Longer term discounts start at 14-night holidays! Get Seaside Curacao Don direct!



Seaside Rest is a private, couples-only, luxury cottage directly above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Please enjoy reading over the listing description and reviews and Seaside Don will always be there with the Seaside Team to help answer any questions. There is a lot to say about this cottage!



When local people continually say, "This the best view on the island" you know you've found a winner! This is the 3rd and final cottage on this unique property. They are all set-up to have a decided focus on private enjoyment of a special environment. Families and friends can rent 2 or all 3, as availability allows. There are associated discounts for renting multiple cottages.



THE COTTAGE -

INSIDE - 1000ft2 of custom, open living space. The hardwood windows are screened and have louvres to let the trade winds blow through and keep things cool. Each of the main windows will have a unique Tiffany-style glass with air, land and sea elements of the island. (I've only had time to make the "sea" window but the others should be done by the end of 2019).



If you like to use AC instead then the cottage is equipped with an oversized unit that cools quickly. There are also 2 fans with lighting that hang from the vaulted ceiling. It is important to please think green and make sure all fans and AC is off when not in use.



The sleeping area is a 2x2 meter teak canopy bed with mosquito netting, extra pillows and silk throw blanket. It is a semi-posturepedic mattress with a quilted comforter on top. There are two louvre-only windows over each section so guests can choose their own level of breeze. The custom cabinetry has plenty of space for travel items and the area is accented with cultural collections from the owner's travels...Chinese vernacular antiques, Mongolian and Turkish textiles, Thai silks and Middle Eastern carpets.



The indoor lounging area is bordered by more antiques and art and is focused on a very comfortable couch in front of the trade winds. The couch can be turned into a sleeping bed for a 3rd guest.



The garden window area is centered on a 300-year old agricultural accounting table from Hunan province, China. While you don't have any rice to sell you may enjoy playing some cribbage, making a puzzle or work your way through a slow meal from our personal chef, Lisa.



The kitchen area is all custom-designed work with ice-making and water-dispensing fridge, 12-bottle wine cooler, granite counter tops, 5-burner stove top with over-sized oven below. All amenities are available including microwave, coffee maker, hand press for fruit juice, smoothie maker, blender, 4-piece toaster...If you don't see it or have a special request then just let us know directly and, as possible, we'll get it ASAP. We very much like to do things that way. Don't forget to get in touch with one of our two private chefs to get on their schedules!



Between the kitchen and outdoor space is a double sided teak bar to keep the conversation, drinks and food flowing seamlessly.



The bathroom has granite and ceramic tiling, teak counters and a rain shower....BUT, most folks use the shower outside so let's go outside.



The tinted glass and hardwood cottage door opens a full 13+ feet to embrace

the stunning views!


OUTSIDE - 1000+ square feet of magic. While looking at the sea the right half of the terrace takes advantage of long established native trees to provide habitat for bird (and, iguana) life as well as a large shaded area for lounging, cocktails and dining.



There is a vertical garden with local aloe, lilies and cactus hanging from the natural bamboo privacy wall. The 2 teak lounge beds complement the teak table and chairs in the main dining area. There are two teak high chairs to keep you at the bar with your Henry's Gin. That's Curacao's original and only native gin and it's off-the-charts...



As your eyes move to the left you will see the sunny side of the terrace. There is a walled garden area that keeps things private. When the lime tree starts producing please, help yourselves! This is also the area to work on your tan in private. Choose one of the gravity loungers in front of the 3mx4m pool (with a bench for sitting) or, maybe even better, enjoy the outdoor teak day-bed. The day bed is simple and spectacular with views that knock socks off but you shouldn't be wearing any socks at this point. The bed is doubly comfortable at night for star gazing!



Don't forget to enjoy the gas grill!



The outdoor shower is right under one of the main trees between the shade and sunny areas of the terrace. Enjoy rinsing off there after a day at one of the many beaches in the area or after your sunset dip in the pool.



Between the shower and pool are stairs that take you down to the cliff-edged deck. This area has two more gravity chairs and a table with two chairs for morning coffee or your favorite sun-downers! There is much magic here. You can enjoy your private couples massages here as well as private chef service with Lisa. Spectacular!



We basically live outside here and this particular recipe of "outside" is unmatched. The cottages comes with a starter bag of song-bird food and they really appreciate a handful at the feeding station. The larger pelicans, herons, flamingos, frigates and even, ospreys round out some incredible bird watching. Yes, the iguanas can also be fed at the feeding station. Our ancestors rock.



For swimmers, snorkelers and divers enjoy the video of the house reef. People come from all over the world to enjoy your backyard!



THE PROPERTY -



Seaside Rest is one of 3 unique, private and nature-focused cottages at the cliff's edge of Cas Abou. Private enjoyment of the unique environment is the priority at each. There is dedicated parking for each cottage with associated private stairs, gardens and entrances.



People have enjoyed renting 2 (even all 3 cottages) so that parents and adult couples can have their own spaces while enjoying a holiday together. All three cottages book very heavily so if you would like to enjoy that then please book at your earliest convenience. Discounts available for renting multiple cottages.



THE NEIGHBORHOOD and REGION-



Cas Abou is an exclusive neighborhood in the Banda Abou region of Curacao. Banda Abou is basically the area north/west of the capital and the airport. When you read/see/hear about the best beaches on the island and the deep Caribbean chill of Curacao...it's our dushi Banda Abou.



Cas Abou is centrally located within Banda Abou on the west coast and provides sunsets over the water 365-days a year. It is about 20-25 minutes to the airport, the

UNESCO World Heritage capital, Willemsted, and the Westpunt village at the north/west end of the island. As an old plantation, Cas Abou is a large, four-square mile property that has the fantastic, global top-ten Cas Abou beach and our residential, gated neighborhood as it's main components. The historical plantation house is scheduled to be renovated...a slow and worthwhile process.


There is a nature "preserve" between the main beach and neighborhood and another preserve borders the north/west edge of the area. It is decidedly focused on a natural, tranquil environment. I say "preserve" because it's been that way for 100s of years and the current price tag of roughly 100,00,000USD isn't going to find a buyer any time soon.



The main Cas Abou beach has a small entrance fee and is best reached by car or an exercise style, 20-minute walk. Everybody needs a car visiting the island so just put in your beach chairs and cooler and you're all set. From Seaside Rest you can also enjoy an excellent snorkel or swim to the Cas Abou beach. A nice mix is to walk there early in the AM and then enjoy an incredible snorkel or drift dive on the way back to the cottage.



Aside from the main beach there are also 2 smaller, natural, mostly coral beaches within Cas Abou. One of them borders the property and is just a 25-meter walk from the cottage door. I have built some stairs and a palapa to make the area really special for relaxing. It is one of the best snorkeling and diving spots on the island. While not private (the government owns all of the beaches) it is used mostly by guests of the cottages on the property. It's an incredible place on your own or to share a few beers with folks from around the world on their holiday!



The other neighborhood beach is just a short 100 meter walk down the street and is also an incredible snorkeling and diving area.



The Cas Abou neighborhood is gated, secure and peaceful. There are quiet hours from 10PM until 8AM.



***Please note that the 3 cottages on this property all enjoy quiet hours from sunset until 8AM. We respect chill time.



***Please enjoy reviewing the Seaside Curacao Information Package that goes out with all contracts. That's the owner generated (with guest input) guide for all things Banda Abou...including our unique Seaside Curacao services offered for your enjoyment. Massages, private chefs, guided land/sea excursions, fishing/sail charters... things that make an already special holiday, exceptional.



Cottage car also available at 40USD/day for 5 days or more and 55USD/day for 4 days or less. All-in price includes insurance and 24/7 roadside assistance. Smooth airport transfers are 40USD, each way. Cabs are 55. Happy to stop at a small local store for staples or you can get the stocked fridge service on arrival! OR, enjoy private chef service on arrival night! BONBINI!

    Spectacular stay

    WOW! We have been coming to Curacao for 8 years. This was our 5th trip with Seaside Curacao and here's why...The new cottage, Seaside Rest, has about 4x the interior space of the other (very nice, too!) cottages and is still very private. The bed is 2x2m canopy style with mosquito netting if it becomes necessary. We liked the trade winds and we're fine with the way the louvered (and screened) windows are set up. There is also an oversized AC unit in case you need that. The couch and inside lounging area is very comfortable and there's no way to avoid the incredible views.The kitchen is fully serviced with all the amenities you could ask for. It's beautifully set-up and the bar area makes you feel like you hit the lottery! The wine fridge comes stocked with only prosecco! The welcome bottle is on the house and then just 20USD for self-serve additional bottles for sunset in case you run out of your "other" beverages....which we did! The bathroom is standard with an on demand hot shower.The main terrace (about 1000ft2) it's split between a shade area with dining table, bar and two lounging beds. The shade comes from a tropical palapa made out of reeds and by the established native trees. HEAVEN! The other side of the terrace is for sunning with a large, comfortable outside day bed or you can each have one of the zero-gravity lounge chairs by the pool! The pool has bench seating and a step-up ledge so shorter folks can enjoy the view! The terrace and pool provide for incredible sunset views and to watch the bird/marine life. The garden between the cottages provides a bonus green-space and adds to the privacy that is always a priority. The outdoor shower under the tree by the pool is the finishing touch for the main terrace. Below the main terrace and pool, right on the cliff edge, is another incredible spot to rest, relax and enjoy unbelievable views! This deck has 2 more gravity chairs for lounging and a table/2 chairs for coffee or sundowners.

    No less than paradise!

    It is hard to explain how perfect this spot is for privacy and complete relaxation. We were the first to stay here and could not have been more thrilled! After staying in the property next door last year we knew we were in for a treat when this one was completed. Decorated with interesting artifacts from our host's travels, this cottage is beautiful and unique in every way. With the sea as your back yard what more could you ask for. My husband spent all week painting under the shade tree with his tropical bird companions and I soaked just a few feet away in the pool and enjoyed every minute of sun. Seaside Don's and Angie are awesome hosts making sure you know all of the local tips and excursions while giving you the privacy you want. We have already booked our week for next year and cannot wait!

    Pais paradise at Seaside Curacao

    The cottage Pais is fantastic. The pictures posted only get you excited and then when you walk in and walk over to the edge and look you tell yourself this is what a vacation is suppose to be. I can not say enough about Don and Angie and how customer service driven they are. Any questions or problems are resolved on a prompt and attentive manner with your satisfaction the goal. I had major airline problems when i stayed with Seaside Curacao, emailed Don to keep him informed and it was never an issue. Picked up at the airport at 11:45 pm got to the cottage and he had an order of ribs in the fridge with some cold cerveza ready to go. WOW really can't ask for any better service. Rented the SUV from him for the week. His knowledge of the island and locations, shops or anything is truly top notch. Have stayed at many other destinations and always did villa or cottage rental and this service and accommodations are better than 5 star. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with a gorgeous sunset Seaside Curacao is your only destination. Enjoy your vacations and have safe travels. Thanks a million Don and Angie your are great!!!!!

    Love at first sight! Cas Pais is a TEN

    We felt honoured to be the first guests to stay at the brand new Cas Pais. It’s a piece of paradise and I we can’t wait to return next year. The interior is oversized and the kitchen area would satisfy any chef. The large sliding glass doors and all the shutters that open provide such a great breeze we hardly used the air conditioning. The bathroom provides plenty of space and the shower area is nice. Hot water was always available should you decide to shower indoors. The living area has so many unique decorations that are personalized touches from Don’s worldly travels. This living area is spacious with a large couch and comfy king sized bed. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need! It was great having the fridge with an ice maker and filtered water. If you are a wine lover, there is even a chiller. Shutters open up from the kitchen to the outside bar area with a covered palapa. The outdoor space........ few words could adequately describe the views. Absolutely breathtaking!! There is no better place on the island to watch a sunset than lounging in the pool with a cold drink next to your loved one. There are plenty of different areas to relax while outside. The oversized daybed on the cliffs edge, the couch like benches in the shade, the beautiful wood table under the palapa, the lower level wood deck or chilling in the infinity pool. Don owns the cottages on both sides of Pais. A bamboo wall provides plenty of privacy for everybody. Never an issue with noise coming from the neighbours. Don and Angie are the absolute best hosts. We travel often and never have we experienced such genuine kindness and attention from hosts. A few other things..... Get out and explore the island. The people are kind and there are so many hidden treasures. Read the information package Don provides. An abundance of information to take in at first but such great suggestions and tips. Do not hesitate to book Cas Pais! It truly is a treasure and staying here for us felt like we hit the jackpot. Dushi!!

    Tranquil Couples Oasis

    Fantastic ! Relaxation at its finest with everything as described by Seaside Don and Angie! Clean and beautiful decor touches. Stunning views day and night and every amenity we needed to unwind. Perfect spots on the pool deck and below to linger with coffee in the morning or wine with the most amazing sunsets. Some days it was difficult to leave but we especially enjoyed the small beach beside the cottage. Some of the best snorkeling we encountered in Curacao. A perfect piece of paradise to return to!

    A Feast For All The Senses

    What can we say but…..WOW! Pictures online DOES NOT do this piece of paradise any justice whatsoever. We have traveled all over the world and have been to almost every Caribbean island and have yet to find anything that surpass Seaside at Curacåo. Don and Angie were fantastic hosts and it was, without a doubt, a home away from home. It literally hurts getting back on the plane for our return flight. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to stay at one of Seaside’s villas, you cannot be disappointed. Thank you thank you Don and Angie…cheers!

    Views of paradise

    Wow, just wow is the best description of this property. The view overlooking the Caribbean Sea is simply awe inspiring. My wife and I spent the majority of our week in Curacao at the villa. We enjoyed relaxing in the shade. We enjoyed feeding the birds each day and watching the iguanas soak up the sun. We found ourselves spending the early evenings in the pool watching the sunset. We visited Cas Abou beach for a great snorkel as well as snorkeling from the small beach right near the villa. We can’t say enough about how accommodating Don and Angie were during our stay. We were sent loads of info prior to our stay that helped with planning and they were always available to assist while we were there. I would strongly suggest you try the VIP BBQ grill truck on the road between Williamsted and the villa. It’s about a 15 minute drive from the cabin but we’ll worth the trip. We ended up getting the ribs on 3 different occasions they were so good. This property offered us the privacy we were seeking while still allowing us to be connected via WiFi. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to any couple.

    Transformational in every way!

    If true rejuvenation is what you’re seeking, then look no further. From the moment you step into this Eden that Don has created, you will feel every muscle in your body relax. The view will mesmerize your senses such that any concern up to that point will be blown away by the trade winds. The beautiful outdoor lounging bed and the large plunge pool both at deck level will give you an idea of how special your holiday will be. The house itself is equipped with every convenience you can imagine. A five burner stove/oven is more than ample to prepare any meal but you may want to use the new gas grill as an option for more outdoor time. The spacious indoor shower provides a great ocean view as well but, again the outdoor shower is unbeatable for the same reason. The bedroom/living area is comfortable and beautifully decorated with artifacts from Don’s travels that each comes with a great backstory. The space is air-conditioned but we found the cross breeze much more refreshing. We found ourselves rising early, feeding our iguana and bird friends and planning our day. Getting to one of the beaches early is a good idea not only to beat any crowds but to get back to the house to enjoy the pool for the much hotter afternoon sun. Each night, we would venture to the lower deck to experience the incredible sunsets. This was our 5th experience renting from Don and we are already looking forward to the 6th. He and Angie have gone from excellent hosts to close friends. They are determined to see that your stay is flawless and you never want to leave. If possible, you should give yourself 2 weeks to fully experience the island, it’s varying beauty and it’s warm, friendly and peaceful people. We also highly recommend renting the house car from Don. You will certainly want it to bop around in and it could not be more convenient. Curacao and, particularly the Cas Abou area will give you a vacation like no other. Off the beaten path but not short on convenience. You, like us will want to return again and again and make this bucolic setting your new home away from home.
