Joan and Ron Welcome You to Aruba, Palm Beach, and the Parrots' Nest! Kindly note that Christmas Week and New Year week are already booked.
This beautiful home is located near the best beach in Aruba, Palm Beach, which is close to Eagle and Arashi Beaches, the California Lighthouse, Divi and Tierra Del Sol golfing, casinos, fine dining and just about every water sport imaginable, including wind/kite surfing. Walking out onto the covered patio you will be offered a view of a cactus grove with wild green parrots and iguana, a Brazilian stone lounging area surrounding a 463 sf (43 sm) backyard swimming pool (beautifully lighted at night), and a view of the salt pond, and in the distance, the Caribbean and its spectacular sunsets.
We are receiving inquiries almost daily, so we must honor confirmed reservations on a first come, first serve basis. The best method to inquire is email, which we check several times per day. While stays can be for as few as 5 nights during the rest of the year, we request a stay of at least 7 nights during the holiday season. The weekly rate will be prorated by night, as at other times of the year.
The house is fully furnished and has 3.5 baths and 4 bedrooms; prices vary with the season and year. One of the bedrooms is the master bedroom with private bath, two bedrooms have twins beds that can be converted to king beds, and the fourth is a larger bedroom with a king size bed, mini-kitchen and private bathroom.
Check out time is 11:00 am and check in time is 4:00 pm; this will allow the maid plenty of time to get the house prepared for our next guests. Pets are welcome for an additional cleaning fee of $50 per week.
The living room features two sofas, two loveseats, and a dining table that seats 8. On the patio and around the pool, there are two tables that seat 10 people comfortably. Also provided is a gas grill.
Cable TV offering 57 channels is hooked to all TVs. In the living room there is also a 3 CD/cassette/am-fm entertainment center. And throughout the house, there is high speed Wi-Fi access through our wireless router. Also, the house has a telephone that can be used for local and international incoming calls and outgoing local calls.
A five minute walk is Palm Beach, a beautiful white sandy beach where the the Pro Am wind-surfing tournament is held annually. There are also plenty of white sandy beaches up and down the west coast and within driving distance; most within a 10 minute drive. All beaches in Aruba are public (this includes the beaches at the hotels) and most have free public parking areas. Also, most of the hotels have umbrellas and chairs, but may charge visitors for use. Boca Catalina, one of the best snorkeling locations on the island, is only a 3 minute drive.
The public bus stop is only a 5 minute walk; the buses provide service to most of the beaches, Oranjestad, and, with connections, the south and middle parts of the island. For more on bus routes, beaches, recreation activities, and other island information, go to our About Aruba section on our website listed below. This web site contains additional pictures and information.
If you enjoy a little gambling, the Marriott Beach Club Casino or Ritz Carlton Grand Casino is only a few minutes away. There are many other casinos just a little farther south toward the capital city of Oranjestad. Also, Oranjestad has world class duty free shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, and bars, all within a 5-10 minute drive.
There are many rental cars companies outside of the airport terminal; we recommend Tropicar or Super Car Rental for very competitive rates and excellent service.

The Unique Benefits at this House: We had such a great time on our trip and in your beautiful house. My mom and mother in law sat on the patio each morning reading and drinking their coffee watching the birds. The pool was perfect and the sundeck was great during the day and at night! Thanks for all of your guidance throughout the planning process! J.L
It was fabulous. Nicely furnished, everything you need. It really is a short walk to the beach, hotels and bars. The owners are very responsive and very helpful. M.M.
We really loved the house! It was super clean when we arrived, Rosy does a nice job. M.D.
Thank you for the use of your beautiful house and plethora of helpful information about your 'happy island!' We are so happy that you welcomed us into your 'Parrot's nest' as it was very comfortable and wonderfully located. J, M, A & C
We were in Aruba for business and had a week. Really glad we can across Joan and Ron and their lovely home. Absolutely excellent. If anything they understate their place, you will be delighted. We were very happy to give them a AAAAA rating. G.L.
It was our pleasure to stay at this lovely home for two weeks this fall. This was our first experience renting a house through an internet booking. We were a bit nervous at first, but good communication with homeowners Ron and Sunny, through telephone calls and e-mails put us quickly at ease. The pictures displayed on their website are accurate as are their descriptions of the property. We were glad to have the privacy of our 'own' place there. It was great watching the stars away from the lights of the hotels. No worries about having to get up early to get a pool chair here! The kitchen is well-equipped. The pool was very nice, and we had a very relaxing, wonderful holiday. We would highly recommend this house as a great option for something different than a hotel stay. C.S.
