In order to understand the history of Curaçao better, we recommend you visit a plantation house. Brievengat, Dokterstuin, Knip, Rooi Catootje, Pannekoek and Zuikertuintje are among the most well-known plantation houses on Curaçao.
Like many other houses on the island, they are often painted in bright and beautiful colors. Some small, other large, but all plantation houses are part of the cultural heritage of the island of Curaçao. This is particularly the case with a plantation house that is close to our resort, located next to the lake on the resort. This is an old and dilapidated plantation house. As it is almost hidden from view and surrounded by beautiful nature, it is definitely worth a walk from Oasis Coral Estate Beach, Dive & Wellness Resort. You can walk from our resort or park your car by the salt lake, walk around the salt lake and take the path to the right to reach the house.
The Jan Kok Plantation house and the Nena Sanchez Gallery close to our Resort
The gallery of Nena Sanchez is located in the Jan Kok country house. It is opposite to the flamingo lake, adjacent to our resort. Nena’s paintings are characterized by colorful figures. Visit the plantation house and admire local art – this way you do two things at once! Many tourists go home with a colorful painting as a colorful be a reminder of their time in Curaçao.
At our front office, you can find more information about the opening hours of the well-known country houses in the area of the resort, including the Jan Kok Plantation house and the walking route to the deserted plantation house Rif St. Marie.
