Your Hosts

Your Hosts Eldon & Hilly

Once you arrive at Amigunan, you will be welcomed by your hosts, Eldon and Hilly de Jongh. Although our family name sounds Dutch, we both are born and raised on Curaçao. We are the owners of the property and have lived here for quite some time. When then kids left the nest, we decided to open our home for guests. Since 2014 many guests have stayed at Amigunan. We live here in the apartment with no name.

Hilly takes pride in creating and maintaining the green oasis. You will often find her between the plants, under the trees or kneeling on the soil. Hilly also manages the housekeeping and finance.

Eldon is responsible for the communication, reservation and maintenance. He also likes to entertain the guests and answer all possible questions they might have.

We are looking forward to welcoming you as soon as you are ready to enjoy paradise in Curaçao.

We wish you a relaxing and cheerful stay at Amigunan in Curaçao!

Local with locals

We are local and we work primarily with local individuals and companies. Our preferred taxi and car rental company are local: Henry and Rob. They offer excellent service, are always on time and charge reasonable prices.

Housekeeping and Pool service are subcontracted out to local companies, that employ local employees. Always with a smile and enjoying to work for you at Amigunan.

For washing your clothes, we refer you to a laundry company down the road, where you can have your clothes washed, dried and folded for just a few bucks.

Green

We encourage all initiatives that support our tiny world to become greener.

We drive an EV (electrical vehicle), we do recycling, we heat the shower water with solar panels, we water the plants with deep well water by drip irrigation with water saving timers, we collect rainwater for watering the plants in the garden, and we share our harvested fruits with our personnel…and with you!

Baily-king

Baily

Our mascot and most important ambassador to Amigunan is our Bailey. A combination of a pug and something else (some say a beagle, making her a “puggle”). Bailey is always hungry and will make you believe that she has not received any meal for the last two weeks.
