I am from Guayaquil, Ecuador and a dual citizen of Ecuador and the United States. I spent over 30 years living in the US and working in the US financial industry. I received my MBA and MS from the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas and an additional master’s degree in finance from Florida International University, in Miami, Florida. I currently reside in Quito, Ecuador and am an owner of several businesses. I am a very open, friendly, optimistic and enthusiastic person. I am also an avid traveler and speak English, Spanish and Portuguese. I want my guests visiting Curacao to have a place that feels like home.
Why VistaMar villa?
My family and I first visited Curacao in 1993 and we felt in love with the island right away. A few years later, we were invited by one of my best friends to stay in his house in Santa Martha Bay, located in the west of the island. Since then, Curacao has been our favorite vacation destination, and so much so, that four years ago we purchased VistaMar, which is just a stone’s throw from my friend’s home. With its beautiful, white sandy beaches, spectacular coral reefs and views of Christopher’s peak, I think the Santa Martha bay area is the best part of Curacao.
We felt in love with VistaMar from the beginning, as it overlooks the Caribbean Sea from the vantage point of an impressive cliff side. We did not spare any cost when we remodeled the villa and expanded it considerably to accommodate our large family.We love having “everyone under one roof” to celebrate our family gatherings, important anniversaries, graduations, casual reunions and, for our guests, intimate wedding ceremonies.
Great for vacations, special ceremonies like private weddings, anniversaries, family gatherings, friend reunions, and corporate events!
Our policy is to rent the entire villa to one family or friends’ group at a time.
In late 2018, we will be opening our fully furnished 2 bedroom, 2bathroom apartment below the pool deck. VistaMar Villa will at that point have 7 bedrooms, with the ability to comfortably accommodate up to 18 people under one roof.
Our guests enjoy our beautiful villa with million-dollar views. The property is spectacular, very peaceful, and privately secluded. The sunsets are the real highlight. Spend the day undertaking incredible diving and snorkelling adventures (just below the villa) and relax in the evening with fine dining from any of the restaurants near the villa as well as un Willemstad
