Stay at the house of a local artist.


Welcome to Casa Amalia.

Haitham named his house Amalia after the Venezuelan actress Amalia Perez Días, and casa means house in Spanish.

Casa Amalia is a villa on Kaya Damasco in Jan Thiel that has been opening its doors to travelers since 2009.
The boutique guesthouse is specially designed for people who do not smoke.
What also makes the house extra nice is that it's Adults Only.

Jan Thiel Beach, several restaurants and a supermarket are within walking distance of us.

Casa Amalia is not a hotel, but a villa of a local artist where you quickly feel at home.
The house has a living room exhibiting various arts, our bedrooms and a courtyard with our concrete art and murals.
Next to the house is a building with our apartments and a small swimming pool.

All accommodations are ideal for single travelers and couples who are looking for a nice place without children where they can enjoy a holiday like a local, and this at a rate that young travelers can afford.

The difference

The difference

It’s impossible to confuse Casa Amalia with a hotel.
Casa Amalia is a house!
Don’t expect a lobby, a front desk, someone to carry your bags or any other facility a hotel has.
Don’t expect 24 hours staff nor daily housekeeping either.
That's why we don't have hotel rates either.

Our concept is very simple; you are staying at a friend's house where you are independent.

Forget long queues at a front desk upon arrival. Our "check-in" takes less than 10 seconds.
On arrival, your room key will be ready with some valuable information you'll need during your stay. Just take your key and paper, and proceed to your room. As simple as that. 
Do read the information on the paper!

Our front door closes at 9pm. You will more information on the paper that you get upon arrival.
For your arrival date it is very important to let us know your flight number and arrival time.
Also, inform us on time if you have a delay. Otherwise, you have a great chance to find yourself in front of a locked door after 9 pm.

Our courtyard is cozy and here you can come in contact with the other guests and exchange tips with each other. You can also ask Haitham any question you may have.

We have limited lounge chairs so there are never too many people around the pool. Don't forget that we are nothing for mass tourism.

Our property is small which makes it easy to make new friends here.

House of Art

House of Art

The Amalia concrete statues are all handmade by Haitham and they adorn our courtyard, while the clay figurines are exhibited in our livingroom with other local arts.

Amalia is an elegant Curaçao lady.

As an adults only guesthouse Casa Amalia is also the perfect place to exhibit Haitham's penises he named "Mi Dòlò" meaning my penis.

From time to time we open our door to the public with an exihibition.

Meet Haitham

Meet Haitham

This is Haitham.
He's the owner of Casa Amalia.

Haitham was born on Curaçao in the year 1969.
He's the father of Emile (20) and Danielle (15).

His father was the son of Lebanese immigrants and his mother has Spanish and South American roots.

In his younger years he worked for 5 years as a flight attendant so he could travel the world.
Today Haitham is an entrepreneur, a sculptor, a politician and he still travels often to visit his friends in several parts of the world.
Haitham speaks Papiamentu, English, Spanish and Dutch.

All the concrete statues and ceramic clay sculptors adorning our living room and courtyard are made by Haitham.
Haitham also has a more daring line of sculptures which we can not show you here, but are exhibited in our living room. Remember that Casa Amalia is for Adults Only! 

The kitchen of our house is Haitham's office and you will find him there behind his computer in his shorts and tank top.

You are always welcome for a chat.

In honor of our Dutch friend Sasha who fights for gay rights:

There is no reason why we shouldn't be hosting guests from the LGBTQ community at Casa Amalia.

So just to make it clear to everyone: at Casa Amalia guests from the LGBTQ community are most welcome!

Jan Thiel Beach

Jan Thiel Beach

Jan Thiel Beach is one of Curaçao's most beloved beaches, and it's located at just 1 kilometer from us. That's  less than 2 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk.

Here you enjoy sun, sea, sand with cocktails, food, watersports, beach tennis, diving, sailing and even nightlife.
On Saturday nights it's the place to be as everyone comes here to enjoy life music, and dancing with barefeet in the sand under the palm trees and the stars.

Car rental

Car rental

Curaçao has many beautiful beaches to enjoy.
Who wants to spend their vacation in a room? Rent a car and explore our island.

We have often seen how people opt for cheap rental cars and when things went wrong, things went very wrong and expensive for these geusts.

We recommend GH Car Rental.
They are reliable, they have good service and they offer new cars.
All cars have air conditioning.

Tip: always take all risk insurance regardless of who you rent from. It doesn't matter what kind of insurance you have.

Be aware that KIA Picanto and KIA Rio are the most stolen car model on the island.

By the way Maps.me is the off line navigation app that works best for Curaçao.

Curaçao is a sunny island with a warm weather. The average temperature is 30 degrees Celcius.

During the day we wear shorts, cotton T-shirts, flip flops and a cap.
During the evening we wear a nice jeans with cotton shirt and flip flops or a cotton dress with sandals.
You really don’t need much unless you are attending a formal event.

If you have you are a guy with a nice muscled body you hope you will walk around in a speedo so our eyes can get some vitamin and our imagination can go wild.
No topless for the girls.

Personal hygiene is very important in the tropics, especially the use of a good deodorant and perfume.
