"Treasure" by the Sea: Balcony overlooking sparkling Caribbean Sea

Treasure by the Sea's ideal location gives you a front row seat to spectacular sea views. It is only a minute's stroll from the resort's salt-water pool. Enough to be close, but far enough for optimum peace and privacy.

It's midway between the two separate sets of stairs leading down to the turquoise water, and just a few steps from a shady gazebo that's perfect for reading or napping - because even sun worshippers seek shade once in a while!

10B is literally home to us. We have spent a good part of each year at Marazul for nearly 20 years so you can count on quality and comfort. We actually handcrafted much of the furniture, including the new kitchen (built at our home shop in the US with cabinet-grade birch plywood and Blum drawer slides, plus deep stainless steel farm sink).

The 2nd floor en-suite master bedroom, expanded by 40% from the original footprint, opens onto a balcony with awning and the most expansive view in the resort - 220° of endless skies and unobstructed blue seas filled with fish, turtles, dolphins, coral and more.

Upgraded wall-to-wall sliding glass doors, along with screened & louvered kitchen entry and side windows take full advantage of the constant trade winds that cool the west without compromising security.

There's everything you need for a perfect vacation: large fridge w/icemaker, microwave, blender, toaster, 4-burner cooktop, convection toaster oven, dedicated WiFi, flat-screen smart tv, on-demand hot water in kitchen and both showers, air conditioners & ceiling fans upstairs and down, dining table & seating for 4 on both balcony and lanai, and that essential charcoal grill.

Divers appreciate the extra rod and equipment hangers in the first-floor bath. Linens, towels and pool/beach towels are, of course, provided, and there's secure storage for your valuables.

To ensure you have a wonderful time and take advantage of everything our home and the island offer, we provide a comprehensive Welcome Booklet in advance with directions, suggestions, access codes, etc. Of course, we're available by email or phone to answer your questions. We are also very lucky to have a great manager on site who's always willing to help.

Thanks for checking out our home. We look forward to hosting you!

'Treasure' by the Sea Reviews

Ewan, October 2023 -- 5 Stars

 “This lovely property was exactly as described and fully met our expectations. Cheryl and David are great hosts and they provided us with a wealth of useful information prior to our arrival. The upstairs terrace makes for a very pleasant spot with awesome sea views for breakfast or lunch. There are several great restaurants nearby, but we also had everything we needed to cook at the house in the evenings after watching the beautiful sunsets. We kept a through breeze through the property when we were home as it got hot during the day. We found we only needed to use the upstairs fan and air conditioner to cool the bedroom in the late evening. Direct access to the sea from the property is important to us, so we enjoyed using the steps down to the water at each end of the resort. The saltwater pool is also very nice, and the cabana offers essential shade in the midday hours. We wanted to be at the quiet end of the island, and close to shore access for snorkeling. There are multiple beaches within 5-10 mins drive, and you can walk to Playa Forti or even swim over if you don’t want to get in the car. Just get in the water and you will see something new every day! We had a very enjoyable week and would choose to stay here again.”

“Treasure by the Sea was a great place to stay. The house has everything you need & a sunset view that makes you want to get back to Curacao as soon as you can. Dave & Cheryl are excellent hosts that ensured everything we needed was addressed & very accessible for advice on anything we wanted to do on the island. The house, the diving, and the laid back Westpunt vibe will have us returning here again and again.”

"Thank you so much to Cheryl and David for allowing us to discover their piece of paradise on this portion of Curaçao where beaches and nature abound. The apartment is great with beautiful sea views and sunset. For snorkeling lovers, it's a little treasure trove of color under the sea right next door. In short, a perfect stay that already makes us want to stay there!"

"While the word "paradise" is thrown around a lot, you will find it at Cheryl & David's place. It is located on the quieter, western side of the island, surrounded by some of the best beaches on Curaçao. The complex in which the apartment sits is well-maintained, with grills and gazebos for relaxing and eating, and it has its own private stairs down that lead directly into the stunning turquoise water. The apartment itself has everything you will need for a stay of any duration, and the view is incredible. Sitting out on the terrace and watching the sunset over the sea every night was such a wonderful experience, and the stars that follow don't disappoint either. And, Cheryl & David are the perfect hosts, providing a great deal of helpful information, being easily accessible, and responding promptly whenever you may wish to communicate with them. I would recommend this stay to anyone."

“Magnifique endroit!  Tres belle propriété avec une vue incroyable! Parfait pour les amoureux du snorkeling et de la plongée!”

"David & Cheryl were amazing hosts who shared tons of insights, ideas, tips for navigating the island affordably and efficiently, and recommendations for great experiences during our stay. The condo was well maintained, and all of the functionality/availability of amenities was spot on with the description. The ocean breeze was definitely strong most days and usually blew right through the home, which was helpful with the 85+ degree days and 80 degree nights... air conditioning was a nice back-up to have for a couple of the extra hot evenings. The kitchen was great for preparing meals at home in between visiting charming local restaurants. The condo was in a quiet and peaceful area at the northwestern tip of the island - nice for relaxing and having some privacy, though a bit challenging for exploring a variety of beaches and other sites in other parts of the island. Diving is probably great here, but snorkelers and sunbathers (like us) will enjoy beaches further south."


Jane, April 2023 -- 5 Stars

“Cheryl and David's place was a perfect base from which to explore Curacao's gorgeous western beaches (many within 5-15 minutes drive and a few you can walk to). The townhome is just as described, minimal, clean, and very comfortable--akin to a well-appointed cabin--and they are very responsive to any questions or issues. We loved having coffee and cocktails on the deck, befriending the local cat, and trying out a new snorkeling spot each day. A deeply relaxing, unforgettable vacation!”

“David and Cheryl put a lot of thought into making Treasure by the Sea a perfect getaway . . . Totally equipped kitchen, artful decorating, comfortable bed. It was a lovely spot to relax, view the sea and enjoy the spectacular sunsets. We look forward to returning to their paradise in Westpunt.”


Audrey, September 2022 -- 5 Stars

“A house with an amazing view, especially on the upper terrace. Extremely well located near the best beaches and points of interest of the region. We fully recommend this place. Cheryl and David were really reactive and with a good communication.”


Sabrina, May 2022 -- 5 Stars

“My fiancé and I loved this Airbnb! It has the absolute perfect location for everything we wanted to do. Great place to eat and rent scuba gear just right next door. We especially loved scuba diving just off the back stairs at their house reef, it was one of our favorites to dive, it was gorgeous! Cheryl and David responded quickly to any questions we had. It was a pleasure staying here! We will be back!"


Cris, December 2022 -- 5 Stars

“Believe the hype! Unbelievable location, stunning ocean views and 1 minute walk away from the clearest Caribbean water and the greatest variety of fish and wildlife we’ve ever seen. Turtles and barracudas just yards from the steps, iguanas and frigate birds and tuna chasing schools of fish across the surface! The house is fantastic and superbly equipped, David and Cheryl are attentive and full of tips and information to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We cannot fault this house or the charming hosts in any way. Totally recommended.”
