We - Christopher Böhm and Elke Verheugen - made our dream come true and built a small paradise for vacations on the island of Curacao.
In 2010 already we had finished our first four apartments.
At the beginning of 2012, we officially opened the Tikki Balu and we finished the construction of the castle and the castle apartments in 2014.
In 2015, we built another relaxation pool and, in 2016, the Palapino followed.
In the fall of 2016, we added the Salettl - a very unusual Bavarian summer house/hut.
Now the ordering of cement and the cooking for the construction workers has ceased, because now our grounds are in an optimal condition.
We would love to welcome you to our small paradise and wish you an unforgettable stay in Curacao.
This was Tara
She was our first dog and accompanied us from 2009 to 2014. She was a little diva but Max had fallen madly in love with her...
One of these days, he was standing at our door, say Tara and never left again. Previously, Max actually lived on the neighbor's grounds, however, due to the lack of necessary communication and due to missing tasks, he decided to stay with us. At the beginning, the neighbor used to pick him up after work every evening, but then he came to the conclusion to leave his four-legged friend at our place. It was pointless! Max dug a hole under the fence every day to be with us anyway.
"My name is Max and actually I'm a stray dog. When I passed by Don Genaro's in 2012, I fell madly in love with Tara. That is why I stayed.
Tara died unfortunately, however the vacation facility is not so bad. You can live a beautiful life here."
In September 2010, he came to us - a nearly dying living being. This dog really looked bad, but we simply couldn't say no to those eyes. He is called "Kiko" now and cleans us out of our food. But we can be proud of the result. Kiko now weighs 73 lb (at the beginning 21 lb) and is a very playful and cuddly dog. He is our guests' favorite and, therefore, earns continiously the title "Employee of the Month".
"I'm Kiko. I weigh 72 lb and I'm the best ball boy on the island. I catch every ball easily in the air. Please try. I will play with you!"
This is Fratz. The tomcat of the house who is in charge. He is very relaxed, but also very curious. Then he has to hang out in the garden for a bit. Otherwise, he lies on his cuddly pillow here in the office. He really likes that.
"Hallo? Somebody home? My name is Fratz, which is German for Nosy Rosy. I simply have to check on new arrivals. The rest of the time I like to sleep. I'm looking forward to meeting you!"
Adi sometimes leaves the house for days. Which worried us in the beginning, but in the meantime we have become used to it. Because sooner or later he will always find the way back home or to our guests.
"I'm Adi. A black and white cuddly tomcat. At least I like to stay with "Mom", although she is the dog-loving one. During the day, I'm always wandering around and in the evening I sometimes miss dinner time. But "Dad" always gives me something to eat late in the evening.
"My name is Boomerang and I'm one of five turtles. We have quite grown in the meantime, of course! Because Don Genaro's guests feed us very often. You will find us very close to the pool...just in case you don't know what to do with your salad leftovers.
At the moment, we are busy cheeping discreetly, however, constantly, so no one will forget us and so we get enough attention. Later, we will be responsible for the egg supply at Don Genaro's. At least that is our business plan. There won't be a rooster though, no way!
