Rent property in Curaçao
Renting a home in Curaçao is a good option if you do not know the island very well and you want to decide if you want to live here permanently. Renting offers a more flexible type of living than owning a home, you can move somewhere else relatively quickly.
Rental homes are often offered completely furnished which is great if you do not plan to live here more than just a few months or years.
Find a place to rent.
When you’re looking for a place to rent think carefully about the type of property you’d like to rent. Are you looking for an apartment or a home with a large garden? Does the property needs to be fully furnished or do you prefer unfurnished?
Budgeting and finances.
When you’re renting keep in mind certain costs that depend on the type of property. We have a list with questions you can ask us when you have found your property.
- What bills (if any) are included in the rent?
- Are there any charges for the cleaning of communal areas etc?
- How much is the deposit (usually one month rent) and when is the rent reviewed?
- Will there be a fixed term in the tenancy and, if so, for how long?
- Is the tenancy extendable after the fixed term has ended?
Following new Dutch laws, the agents commission is paid by the home owner when the house is rented to a private person. Renters do not pay commission to the agent for finding them a rental home unless the rent is in the name of a company.
