Owners Harold and Caroline, along with Joshua, Daniel, Tom and Anna were great hosts. This small gem is located in the Punda area of Willemstad, and fronts the Caribbean. Swimming and snorkeling is available on the property. Though I didn't try it because of food allergies, breakfast is provided at the Lodge.
Higher end restaurants Fishalicious and Rozendaels serve fantastics meals (dinner only for both) and are located within 5 minutes walking distance. For local Curacao food, you must try the open air food market next to the floating market.
I recommend renting a car to explore the island. A must is the Bocas along the north coast near Westpunt. But go on a windy day to experience the oceans power and fury. And stop by Jaanchies in Westpunt for a great meal amongst a bird sanctuary.
Your hosts can recommend some nice beaches to visit along the south coast. My favorite was Cas Abo because they had shade palapas, lounge chairs, and food was also available.
My only negative about the Lodge is sleep can be difficult if your room is at the front of the property because of road traffic, but that's no fault of the owners. Just bring ear plugs. AND BRING MOSQUITO REPELLENT.
