Warawaraweg 13, Willemstad, Curacao

About Us


Our team consists of Marcia and Amber Taams, our Housekeeper, Charin Rosa, and our Secretary, Luvia Hellement.

In 2009, my husband, Jan, and I began renting our first vacation villa, Kas Kinikini. We soon followed with Casa Sablica, and the following year, we purchased our beach apartments. We set a high standard in the quality of our Vacation Rentals.
I am originally from Durban, South Africa, where I met my island husband, Jan Taams. Since 1992, we have lived on the island.

In 2016, Amber, our daughter, joined the team continuing the family business.
Amber grew up in Curacao. She attended high school in NJ, USA, and she lived for a few years in The Netherlands. Amber lives 10 minutes away from the apartments, and she can assist you should the need arise.

Our Housekeeper, Charin, hails from Curacao. She has family in Bonaire, where she spent part of her youth. Luvia, our Secretary, grew up in Banda bou, on the west side of the island. With this team, we manage our properties.

Personal attention

We take care of our guests as we manage our homes, with the help of our loyal staff, which gives us control over cleaning, any information required, and a quick response should an issue occur.


We love what we do. We are passionate about Tourism. We want to make you feel at home and to experience Curacao through the eyes of a local. We wish nothing more than that you have a great vacation on our beautiful island and return to stay with us.


CITI audited our apartments on behalf of the Curaçao Tourism Board. In November 2019, we received their approval. This quality audit takes place every two years. Returning guests will experience the same standard as when they first came to stay.


Through instant messaging, we stay in touch with you from the time you leave home. We receive you personally with a welcome drink and we give you a tour of the apartment explaining the dos and the don’ts in the Resort.

Amber and Marcia, our stay at Ocean Garden was great. We felt very at home in the apartment and everything was clean and tidy. The beds were super comfortable, and we had a great barbecue on the porch. We will definitely come back when we are in Curacao. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment! See you soon!

Marcia and Amber, the apartment, location and the private beach were awesome! We enjoyed snorkeling at your beach as well. Your apartment allowed plenty room for our family of four. We loved Mambo beach vibe and restaurants. Pizza Mare was our favorite. We went to the Aquarium and saw the lobsters, flamingos and nurse sharks. Recommend going to Klein via Blue fin tours (the boat not the catamaran) Boat is faster and more private. Excellent BBQ! Great visit to Playa Kalki (Snorkeling) and Playa Grandi (Swim) There is a fee for chairs. Amber was available to answer our questions. Thanks so much!!

Amber and Marcia, what a great weekend it was. I got to spend my 25th birthday with my mother all the way from Holland. She enjoyed the private beach and pool so much. It was wonderful to have it just a walk away. Sitting outside with a nice glass of wine and a nice breeze watching the sun set was something you can’t always experience in Holland. What an amazing location. So close to everything it is ideal! Hopefully we will be back!
