Instead of enjoying their lifesavings, the owner and his wife decided to invest their money by building apartments on Westpunt. They started in 2006 with a plan for just four apartments, which resulted in a three stories high building with eight spacious condos. They opened in 2009 and named it Nos Krusero – which means ‘Our Cruise’ in Papiamentu – because the apartments had taken over from their dream vacations.
Nos Krusero is located at the very tip of Westpunt. The apartments are across from Playa Kalki and therefore within walking distance to the beach. It is a 38 km drive to the airport and driving to the capital Willemstad takes about 50 minutes. There is no supermarket nearby, but Nos Krusero provides a grocery service for its guests.
The eight apartments were built in sets and each set has a connecting door to turn two apartments into one large accommodation. Every apartment has its own terrace, with at least one hammock and they all have an astonishing view. The complex offers private parking. There is a swimming pool with a small waterfall, a sundeck with sun beds and a large BBQ area. Nos Krusero also offers a separate, lockable room for rinsing and storing your scuba gear. The whole building is also completely secured with cameras.
Nos Krusero often receives compliments regarding their location and the peace and quietness, but their most memorable review refers to the personal contact with the host himself: “Staying at Nos Krusero feels like staying with family”.
