After inquiry, please review your attached info materials for important tips!

March special - All open spring dates are 15% off!

ON. THE. SEA. Couples only! Check those reviews and videos out!

***This cottage books very heavily, long in advance...if you see your dates are taken just let me know! We also manage several of our neighbor's exceptional villas! You can see all the properties and reviews below...

Cas Cielo - this seaside cottage is off...the...charts!

Wow...Your own beach...Cliff-high, sweet water cocktail pool...Patio, covered deck, cliff side 'meditation' spot, hammocks over the beach, custom sunbed...And sunsets over the Caribbean 365-sets a year! Nice palapa on the beach!

Surrounded by mother nature...Her waves, rays and breezes, her sights, sounds and textures...Pelicans, herons, egrets, flamingos, trupials, parrots, bananakeets, sparrows, ospreys, frigates - these are your neighbors. Don't get me started on the world class diving and snorkeling right in front of you...People come from all over the world to dive in your backyard.

You even see the Milky Way belt at night...Over the sea, listening to the waves and feeling the breezes? Yep, that's what i'm talking about. The constellations Orion and Scorpio transversing the night sky? A full moon setting over the Caribbean? Please. Private. Quiet. Natural.

It's the real deal! Our reputation is built on delivering smiles on arrival! Also ensured is a genuine get-back-to-nature experience where you can focus on each other in a very soothing and uniquely gorgeous environment.

The cottage itself is built on simple, efficient outdoor living ideas but comes with over the top amenities.

Folding doors open directly to the bedroom (no tv...You know what to do about that. There will never be a tv but there is fast and free wi-fi) and you can enjoy the surf sounds, breezes and views directly from the 2 x 2 meter custom bed. Or, you can enjoy the natural views from the 4-foot porthole window!

The deck is 4 x 6 meter and has a covered dining and lounging area and an uncovered area with a custom sun bed. Stepping down from the deck you can go LEFT to the beach (1 minute walk through the bush-bush) or enjoy resting and sipping for a while in a hammock over the beach... You can go diving, snorkeling, floating, sipping, kissing...There are no neighbors going south for about a mile of coastline! But, if you want you can swim to global top-ten Cas Abou beach (about 20 minute slow swim) and grab a sandwich and a beer, maybe a massage and then rent a kayak or paddleboard and go exploring! B-i-n-g-o - you're on holiday with somebody you love!

OR you can take a RIGHT and hit the fresh water cocktail pool and light garden! That's gets pretty addictive...Afterwards you can enjoy an outside shower to get the salt off or just let it bake in while resting on the lounge chairs by the pool or the chairs on the edge of the cliff. Take your pick!

I suppose you might want to fire up the gas grill at some point or enjoy a custom picnic basket from one of seaside curacao's highly in demand personal chefs!

The bathroom is just off the bedroom with simple toilet, shower and sink. The outside shower is a natural paradise.

The kitchen comes fully equipped with a big fridge/freezer with automatic ice and water dispenser, 4 burner gas stove-top, coffee maker, toaster, blender, rice cooker, counter-top oven/microwave and all the pots and pans you (or, the chef!) need.

Folks, it's a simple, comfortable place designed with love and attention to detail...In perhaps the best setting on the entire island of dushi korsou!

Also included are coffee pads that go with our house coffee machine. We want you to start your holiday and your mornings off properly!

Cottage kayaks are available at 30USD for a half-day rental. Go left one day and then go right! Unbelievable!

Also available with the rental of this cottage is the owner's nicely used suv, a great island car! 30usd/day. Insurance and 24/7 road assistance is included! Free entrance to Cas Abou beach with the cottage car rental!

All rates already include everything, no other hidden fees. Just please Think Green on the island!

About Seaside Don

After living 9 years in China, including 2 years as a Peace Corps volunteer...I wanted a change. I came to Curacao to teach history and philosophy, opened a small shop which has since closed and started a small business managing properties. This is the first property I've ever bought and I have a lot of fun with the details that make it a truly special place. Introducing new friends to our island and especially to the natural areas of Banda Abou is a real pleasure for me!

Seaside Don purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Seaside Don chose Curaçao

Well...it's as you see it in the pics. Beautiful. Outrageous. I've never seen anything like it.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the moon set over the sea...Watching the constellations traverse the night sky...Private...Steps to the sea with an incredible house reef...Crazy sunsets...Amazing bird/sea life...Simply surrounded and embraced by beauty. It's the first and only property I'll ever buy and I love to share it.

Notes:
Casa cielo is located in the banda abou part of curacao, basically the northern/western half of the island.

Casa cielo is part of the exclusive cas abou neighborhood istuated halfway between the capital city and unesco world heritage recognized, willemstad, and the last village on the island, westpunt. The location could not be better to explore the raw beauty of the beaches, bays, coves and backroads of curacao and still be within easy (25 minute) striking distance of either the city or westpunt. Within 10 minutes of cielo are 2 restaurants regarded as fine dining (daniel's and karacter), #1 rated trio pennoti and several wonderfully local spots for catch-of-the-day and/or a tenderloin or a chill bar atmosphere and many beach snack shacks... All guests of cielo enjoy free admission to cas abou beach.

Slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very private. We enjoyed the many different seating areas on all different levels built into the cliff side. The dipping pool and palapa hut offered opportunities to cool down and get out of the sun. Enjoying coffee and wine from the "iguana" table was a one of a kind experience. Cas Cielo is located in the Cas Abou neighborhood on the quieter (less touristy) side of the island. We were provided with plenty of information leading up to our trip and his packet proved to be our go to resource when planning our days. They have all of the basics at the house to enjoy your time on the island comfortably. Notably, no need to bring a cooler, binoculars, portable speaker, or beach umbrella/portable chair for the private beach only steps away. The snorkeling on Curacao's beaches cannot be beat- including right off of the cottage beach! Don and his staff have done things right and their place really shows it. We hope to be back!

Wonderful Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cas Cielo was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. My boyfriend and I decided to celebrate my 31st birthday in Curacao and had the luck of staying here. You will feel like you are living in your own tropical home on pretty much your own island! We cooked breakfast every morning and ate at our favorite table overlooking our little beach, pool and wide open view. We would spend our days exploring the endless nearby beaches, hiking and walking around Willemstad which is about 30 minute drive away. After our daytime adventure, we'd come back and take a dip in the wonderful pool overlooking the ocean, and rinse off using the outdoor shower. From there it was back out to dinner and then back home to fall asleep listening to the waves.

Don and Angie were very accommodating and had everything we could possibly need - from beach chairs, to towels, to a cooler, to an entire information packet that included tons of recommendations for places to eat and things to do. There was even snorkel gear in the house but we had already lugged ours with us from NYC. If you want a relaxing getaway to experience the best part of Curacao, Cas Cielo is the way to go!

The most amazing place yet!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this vacation was amazing! The planning with Don and Angie prior to was a breeze! The house was more than what we had invisioned! Angie picked us up at the airport on time and pointed out things on the way to the house. She had a map of the Island which we used but getting around was easy!

We arrived at the house and was blown away by the view! The house had everything we wanted therefore it took us 3 days to even start exploring the island. The entire house was comfortable. The kitchen had EVERYTHING; more than just the basics as well, magic bullet, lots of cooking utensils, ice buckets and more! The house also came with 2 sets of chairs (ones similar to the popular Tommy Bahama beach chairs). Also there to use was snorkel gear, cooler, water jug, grocery bags because the large stores don't have bags and several reading books. We also left behind water shoes for women and a pool\ocean float.

The bed was comfortable yet firm. The pillows were lumpy, but we are pillow snobs, but none the less slept very well. We only used the AC at night. Linens were changed half way through the week with also clean towels and beach towels, which was awesome!

The WiFi was great, only had a small outage while we were there but didn't really effect us. The house has beautiful decorations inside and out. He also has soft electric candles and night lights which were a perfect touch!

The outside area has everything needed. We had coffee on the lower table in the mornings and breakfast on the upper table! We were greeting by the Igunanas whiched we named Ivan, Igor and Izzy.

They don't bother you unless you have food so we took down daily fruit and veggie scraps. Being outside here is truly breathtaking. They do have to small cats them visit in ocassion which we named Nala and Simba. They didnt bother us at all, we enjoyed seeing them. Thr bugs were only annoying in thr mornings, we used an organic bug spray that did thr trick. The small gnat bugs were the worse and we killed a few mosquitos each morning, again not bad!

Overall the house made our vacation. We had traveled to many Island's and this ranks at the top (feel free to read my Trip Advisor "trip report" under Ksaul for more). Don and Angie were very accommodating while on the Island and answered questions and emails quickly. We even got an invite over for a sunset drink but were unfortunately still out and about.

We would book here again! Look no further, book now! Truly amazing!

Privacy & Peace - Definite 5 STAR *****

  • 5 of 5

We’ve travelled to a lot of places and enjoyed this one to the max. Don (the host with the most) was fantastic, making every effort to assure our happiness and peace. We highly recommend Angie for the airport transfers and a great hike. Lisa/Olav was fantastic private chef and Anouk for the massage.

If you are looking for hustle and bustle, stress, screaming kids and crazy night life, move on.

If you are looking for privacy, peace, personal service, private pool, private beach and your own place to snorkel, then this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: Nothing better than an anniversary by the sea! Always great to meet some Badger fans, too! You guys did it right...personal chef service, massages, fishing ("not called catching") and nice explorations when you weren't chilling in the pool or down by the beach...perfecto! I'll send you some pics as the new cottage gets finished up and we are ready to welcome you back for more R&R! Seaside Don and the Team

Did Not Disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted warm sun, cool breezes, and soft sand and Curaçao did not disappoint, BUT, Cas Cielo exceeded our expectations. Don, our host, created a Caribbean dream cottage. Every glance about this refuge brought another creative montage to our eyes. Seashells, stained glass, driftwood, coral, and more, adorned this charming abode. Below at ocean’s Edge was an enchanted little beach. There was a plunge pool and cozy seating areas all with an unobstructed view of the aqua & navy sea.

We explored the island and visited several beaches, each more enjoyable than the last.

Don steered us towards various restaurants, all with their own idea of Curacao-style.

Everyone we met were friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend a trip to Curaçao and to Don’s unique and lovely living quarters.

Owner's Response: Go Eagles! Very nice to have a chance to sit down with you both and trade some stories! We really appreciate seeing the island through the eyes of fresh explorers! You guys did a great job checking the island out and there's no better base to come back to! Glad you had a chance to enjoy our massage specialist, Anouk! Come on back! Seaside Don

Magical Moments and Memories

  • 5 of 5

We are missing Cas Cielo already! There is everything to love about this cozy home. Don and Angie instantly make you feel welcomed and at home sweet home!

Curacao is a beautiful island with many places to explore and enjoy. Our favorite times were relaxing at Cas Cielo, snorkelling, swimming, listening to the sounds of pure bliss. We were awe struck by the view every day.

It was everything we wanted for a dream vacation and more. Thank you for sharing your perfect paradise with us.

Until next time,

C and J from ”Winterpeg”, Manitoba!

Owner's Response: Hello Winnipeg! Very nice to have you both down for your 2-week holiday on the sea! It was fun to check in with you and see you enjoying the privacy and views and really getting your chill on. Perfect way to ring in the new year! On your return visit you might want to try out the massages overlooking the little beach or private chef service down at the cliffside table. Enjoy a terrific new year, you certainly know how to kick it off in style! Seaside Don

This is the closest rental to Play Cas Abou!
Car: necessary

Casa Cielo is located in the Banda Abou part of Curacao, basically the northern/western half of the island. When you see the torqouise waters of the Caribbean these are where the best beaches are located...In fact, this is where Cas Cielo is located! Cas Cielo is part of the exclusive Cas Abou neighborhood situated halfway between the capital city and UNESCO world heritage recognized, Willemstad, and the last village on the island, Westpunt. The location could not be better to explore the raw beauty of the beaches, bays, coves and backroads of Curacao and still be within easy (25 minute) striking distance of either the city or Westpunt. Completely central.

Within 10 minutes of cielo are 3 restaurants regarded as fine dining (daniel's, karacter and Klein Landhuis Santa Marta), several wonderfully local spots (including the #1 tripadvisor rated restaurant on the island, trio penotti) for catch-of-the-day and/or a tenderloin and a chill bar atmosphere and many beach snack shacks...Food shopping is easy and once you stock up the bush-bush is yours to explore.

All guests of cielo enjoy free admission to global top-ten cas abou beach just around the corner by swimming, walking or a short car ride. Guests can enjoy snorkeling and/or diving at the exceptional house reef right in front of the cottage!

Cielo is the real deal, so please read the reviews for this cottage and all other seaside curacao properties and know that you and your holiday are in excellent hands! We love showing off our island and we work hard to make sure you have the holiday you deserve!
