Laptop Lifestyle

Living the laptop lifestyle in the Dutch Caribbean.

Calling all location independent workers, entrepreneurs, freelancers and digital nomads! Contrary to what you may have heard, we actually do work hard in the Caribbean :) we just do so in sunny conditions and 30°C (86°F) weather (yes, even in the winter) – so why not get in on this? There are direct flights to Willemstad, Curaçao from cities in Europe, the United States, Canada, Central and South America. Pack your bags, bring your work and trade in your office views for sherbet-colored Dutch colonial facades lining the secluded pool right outside your wooden shutter door. Sound good? Read on!

Where you’ll work.

The Pietermaai Boutique Hotel lays sprawled across Pietermaai Smal, a newly revitalized district downtown with an eclectic mix of renovated, historic city dwellings and modern structures that now house an array of culinary hotspots, trendy bars amidst the brightly hued office and residential properties. Conform to the unique concept of a ‘scattered hotel’, the Pietermaai Boutique property was created by renovating former houses in the neighborhood and turning them into a collection of charismatic rooms and apartments. Each comes equipped with its own kitchenette (including fridge) and fast-paced internet connection, you’ll feel right at home in no time! For long(er) stay bookings get in touch by sending an email to to receive a special code you can present to the Pietermaai Boutique Hotel when requesting your customized package rates.
