“why would we ever leave?”
Reviewed 5 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We generally don't gush about a place or experience but this little place hits it out of the park on so many levels.
The large seaside deck and covered porch provide spectacular views , privacy and front row seats for glorious sunsets. We did explore the island but found that we really enjoyed just being there and soaking in the peaceful setting.
Don, Angie and if you are fortunate enough to meet their friends (an extended family of expats as we saw them) are a very helpful, interesting and genuine group of people.
Don has made the effort to assemble a very detailed and accurate visitor's guide about beaches, activities and restaurants to be enjoyed. If it is in his guide then it can be taken as gospel .
Hint; Bring water shoes. There are a few rocks to navigate getting into the water but once in amazingly clear water for snorkelling.
If you have mobility issues then , because the steps down to the waters edge are a bit steep , we wouldn't suggest this place for you.
If you are honeymooners or seeking refuge from being a parent for a week then get here as fast as you can.

We will be back

It's real special to have the rare opportunity to bring new friends and island friends together! The photo you sent with all that snow???

“A dreamy honeymoon & chill vacation, all in one trip!”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

What a quaint island, Curacao is. It has an amazing range of local/fun/one-of-a-kind vibes as you drive through the island. We came on our 1-week honeymoon trip and could not have asked for a better mixture of all things we enjoyed. Here's a breakdown of what we loved the most. The right amount of beach, snorkel, city, scenery, fancy, and local.

[The Cottage]
I fell in love even before I got here because of the view from Casa Ba-ooo. You go to sleep hearing the waves and you wake up to birds chirping at your deck. Coming from NYC, you don't get that experience very often, so it was a treat indeed. We mixed in some cooking into our food planning. Make sure to take advantage of the grill! Make your own dinner and cocktails, and there's a romantic dinner with a view during sunset. Love!

[The Beach]
There are a lot of beaches. Our favorites were Lagun, Daaibooi and Cas Abao (right by the cottage, a plus!). Lagun is a cute little nook with a body of water and their mojito was on point. DaaiBooi has awesome fries and chicken. Cas Abao had the best breeze and vibe. The bar here got a little crowded when we were there so bringing our own cooler with drinks was key!

[The Sailboat Tour]
My husband and I went on the sunset tour with Captain Dirk. This was once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. You sit on the deck as he cruises around the west end of the island and watch the sun go down. Perfect breeze combined with delicious snacks he prepares...what more can I ask?

[The Massage]
We got the couples Massage from Anouk and her business partner Aldrick. They come to the cottage so you can hear the waves as your body is in pure relaxation mode. I highly recommend to take advantage of this experience!

[Nature Walks]
Angie provides a list of choices to take in the natural beauty of Curacao. We went on the Flamingo Walk and it was amazing to see how different the scenery was between in-land and beach-side. If you're lucky enough to have Don come with you, he'll make sure that you leave with some historic knowledge of the island. :)

Last but certainly not the least... the Concierge!
Don and Angie will make your trip a truly memorable one by totally customizing their recommendations to your preference and taste. They are top quality people, filled with love, ready to help you so you can have the time of your life on the island. So when in doubt, ask them!

Dear New York City!
It's soooo much fun watching people from NYC chill down and really enjoy the best of what a tropical island can offer. You guys did a great job balancing your explorations with the deep chill that Casa Ba-ooo brings out in people. Massages on the terrace - check. Private sunset sail charter - done. Morning nature walks with flamingos, herons, eagles and sea glass - boom. Next up for your anniversary....private chef service with the best views on the island...my treat! Please come back soon, loved sharing the island with you both! Don and Angie

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My wife and I were looking for a secluded paradise to get away from the busy day to day of city life and we couldn't have been happier with Don's little beachfront cottage!

If you are looking to disconnect and just enjoy the beautiful island weather and sights then this is the perfect spot for you! There is wifi strong enough to stream some netflix before heading to sleep but you're better off sitting on the beautiful deck and staring at the stars while listening to the waves crash anyway!

Don and Angie are going to give you a packet with a TON of information and suggestions on places to visit and places to eat. TRUST IN THE PACKET!!! You won't be sorry as they have built it completely from their own personal experiences and couldn't have been more on point with their suggestions and comments.

We were even lucky enough to spend a few hours with Don checking out the north side of the island that you would NEVER find on your own and the sights we saw were absolutely out of this world! Getting his perspective as a long time island resident was one of our favorite parts of the trip. You can tell his love of living on the little island is seconded only to his love of watching vacationers enjoying the same.

We had an incredible time!!!

“Excellent waterfront cottage with great snorkeling out the back door”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My wife and I just returned from 6 fantastic nights at Casa Ba-ooo. The cottage is on waterfront property in a gated residential community very close to Cas Abou beach in the Banda Abou region (northern half) of Curacao. We considered several resorts on the southern half of the island where the majority of tourists stay, and also another gated community in the vicinity (Coral Estates), but I have to say we made the right decision with Casa Ba-ooo. We were very happy with this cottage and it's location in the relaxed, less crowded, and friendly region of Banda Abou. The cottage consists of an enclosed bedroom/bathroom/kitchen with an attached covered porch and uncovered deck. The main cottage is separated from the covered porch with a multi-panel sliding glass door that can be fully opened during the day to let the breezes in and retracted during the night to cool the place off with AC. The covered porch gives you the outside experience without sacrificing privacy. There is a shower in the bathroom, but there is also an outdoor shower under the deck. The kitchen has a gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, and large toaster oven with some counter space and plenty of cabinets. There is ample closet and drawer space in the bedroom as well. The cottage is essentially fully stocked, so we didn't need to get many things except groceries on our first day. The best parts about the cottage are it's location on the water with wonderful views and the great snorkeling just behind. We snorkeled every day, at the cottage and other locations, and we found the snorkeling at the cottage to be the best we encountered. The other factor that should not go unmentioned is the great service provided by Don and his Seaside Curacao team. From the initial contact about availability to stopping by on our last day at the property, Don and Angie made our vacation a great experience. We had two small issues come up during our stay, and they were handled immediately. Top notch service. I would definitely return and not think of staying anywhere else. You will not be disappointed. There are many great reviews here, so I'll just offer the following comments and tips:
-The cottage is close to many great beaches (Cas Abou, Porto Marie, Daaibooi, etc)
-The cottage is close to many good restaurants
-The cottage is close to a laundry facility, small grocery store, and gas station
-If the small grocery store doesn't have what you need, there is a huge, easy to find grocery store with good meats and produce about 20-25 minutes away
-Wi-fi was great, not a single issue
-Locking safe provided
-The Seaside Curacao team will give recommendations and organize excursions for you
-Bring a cheap pair of flip flops to walk around in because the property has crushed coral walkways that might be hard on your feet
-Take advantage of the rental car option
-Probably not for the elderly because there a lot of steps behind the cottage leading down to the water
-There are beach chairs, towels, mats, and a cooler on the porch so you can take with you when visiting other beaches
-There was extra snorkel gear at the cottage for your use (we used the fins, but brought our own masks and snorkel)
-Talk to Don and Angie. They are accessible, easy to get along with, and have a lot of knowledge about the island
-A very detailed information packet was emailed to us before our arrival. It was very helpful and appreciated; we referred to it many times
-You can hire a private chef to prepare a meal for you at the cottage
-You can setup a massage at the cottage. We booked Anouk and Aldrick at 7:00 pm on the deck under the stars with the sound of the ocean in the background. Very nice.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

If I could sum up our experience at Don's seaside villa in one word, it would be paradise. Just looking at the pictures again as I write this review makes me wonder what the hell I'm doing on the east coast working in corporate.

If you want to drive ~1-2 minutes to one of the best beaches in the world you can do that. If you want to walk ~1-2 minutes to a private secluded beach where you can propose (like I did) you can do that to. If you're super lazy when you go on vacation like me and want to walk about 10 seconds you can just go down the steps to the ocean that's right in your backyard.

Honestly, Don is probably one of the most laid back, coolest guys out there. Restaurant recommendation, check. Need to explore the island? He'll tell you about more places than you can visit in a week (which means you should probably stay longer). Need anything at all? His response time is second to none (and that's coming from a guy working for an international conglomerate). I can't wait to get back with more friends and family to show them what we were so fortunate to experience.

To sum it all up, don't cheat yourself out of the best vacation of your life by not booking this. There is literally nothing more you could ask for.

Hope to see you soon Don.
