Your vacation escape is a beautiful Aruban villa, complete with arched windows and doors and lots of cool Caribbean architecture. This single-story home offers over 2300 square feet of living space that was designed in classic Aruban style, with nothing but comfort and convenience in mind. It features 3 bedrooms (with an optional 4th bedroom guest suite), 3 large baths with 6' walk-in showers, a large, fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and a round dining area overlooking the pool, gardens and covered patio. The large pool patio and garden area are perfect for for relaxing, barbequing, sunning and drinking your favorite blender drinks. Yes, the blender is waiting for you, along with a barbeque, chaise lounges, beach chairs, coolers and everything you need for a good time at home or at the beach.
Unlike the crowded hotels, our home gives you both the seclusion and privacy of a Caribbean home coupled with the convenience of a great location. With both inside and outside dining and eating space, lounging and living space, cooking and bar space, we give you an Aruban experience like no other home in the area. The villa is air-conditioned and includes cable TV and high-speed internet.
The area is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Aruba and is very safe and very conveniently located.

It's a stay you will never forget - we guarantee it!
It's the perfect location to experience Aruba's terrific weather and famous breezes, both day and night. Since Aruba is outside the reach of hurricanes, you can enjoy blue skies and comfortable breezes with 88 degree temps all year long. There's no bad time of year to visit Aruba!
So whether you spend the day on the beach, cruising on a catamaran or traveling the island, you'll come home to a beautiful villa with a private pool... all your very own.
There's no shortage of fun things to do in Aruba, but some of the best things aren't promoted or even talked about. It's a mystery even to us, but we've done it all and we share it exclusively with our guests in our recently released 'Top 10 Cool Things To Do In Aruba That Nobody Is Talking About.'
It will turn an otherwise great vacation into an amazing one. We guarantee it. Only our guests can experience the island in all its majesty and can see and experience many things they would have otherwise missed. You will not get this from any other vacation rental in Aruba... except ours.
Every travel website, hotel and tourism guide is going to promote the same ten or twelve tourist attractions that make Aruba famous, like Baby Beach, the Divi-Divi Trees, the Natural Bridge and the Natural Pool. If you've never seen them then maybe you should, but there's more... so much more. And you need not miss the ordinary to experience the extraordinary!
With our 'Top 10 Cool Things To Do In Aruba That Nobody Is Talking About' you will not only get to see all the things that people usually talk about but you be able to see and experience all the great things that NOBODY is talking about. And it's only available to our guests! So it's just another reason why staying at one of our 5-star properties will help make your vacation extraordinary!

HERE ARE ANSWER TO THE MOST FAQ'S:
How close is the property to the beach?
Just outside the low-rise hotel district, 1 mile to the beach...an easy walk, bike or drive. All beaches are free and parking in plentiful.
Do you provide beach chairs?
Yes. We provide a limited number of beach chairs and a cooler. Beach towels are not provided.
How far are you from the airport?
A 10-15 minute drive.
Are there any additional costs or cleaning fees?
No! The rates you see are the rates you pay. No cleaning fees or utility surcharges.
Are there additional sleeping accommodations?
Yes. There is an optional guest suite which features a kitchenette, full bath, queen-size bed, and cable TV. There is also a queen-size air-bed available.
Is a deposit required to rent the home?
Yes, a $200 refundable security deposit. Proudly, we have never had to keep a deposit.
Do we need to rent a car?
It is strongly recommended to rent a car. Taxis are very expensive and there is a lot to see and do all over the island. There are 5 great beaches within 2-3 miles and dozens upon dozens of sites and activities throughout the area.
Will my cell phone work on the island?
Yes, and there are phones for rent at the airport. There are no hard-wired phones at the house.
What is the best time of year to travel to Aruba?
Any time of year is a great time of year to visit Aruba. The weather is consistently beautiful (88-92 degrees) with a comfortable, steady breeze. Summer is getting more and more popular, so reserve early. We do sell out July and August.
What do I do if I want to reserve the home?
Simply send us an e-mail and let us know what dates you would like to reserve. We'll e-mail you a reservation agreement.
What days can I check-in and check-out?
Will you hold my dates while I shop for airline tickets?
Yes, just e-mail us and we'll hold your dates for up to 48 hours while you shop for airfares.
What is the best way to shop for airfares?
You can search airfares of all carriers at once and use the 'expand travel options' to show fares for up to three dates before and three days after your chosen dates. It will show all flights, rates, and date ranges. We recommend booking through the airlines website, however, rather than through Orbitz.
Do you provide maps and information on Aruba?
Yes. There will be information about attractions, restaurants, tons of activities, a map and discount coupon book and brochures.
Can I Google-Map the location?
Aruba does not use street names to the extent that most countries do. Many sections of Aruba have names, but the individual roads do not. This makes Google mapping very difficult. The map page of our website shows where the home is located. As you see, it is close to Eagle Beach.
What currency do I use?
The U.S. dollar is accepted everywhere throughout the island. The local currency is called the Aruban Florin (AFL). $1 = AFL 1.75 - One U.S. Dollar is equal to 1.75 Aruban Florin.
Is the drinking water safe?
Aruba’s water meets the highest quality standards of the World Health Organization and is distilled in the world’s second largest desalination plant. When you buy bottled water in Aruba you are buying tap water.
What is the drinking and gambling age?
Are there medical facilities?
There are two hospitals. If you are on medication, be sure to bring all your prescription medicine with you. Foreign prescriptions cannot be filled in Aruba.

Some restaurants have a service charge, which can be deducted from your usual tip.
Downtown Oranjestad, Main Street, which is good for daytime shopping, is open 9 am - 6 pm. Eagle and Palm Beach Malls and Hotel Areas are open night and day and have restaurants, clubs, nightlife, casinos and are open well past midnight.
When leaving Aruba:
US Customs and Immigration Aruba provides the services of the Department of Homeland/Security/ U.S. Customs and Protection (USCBP) for all passengers departing on flights to the U.S. To allow sufficient time to clear both Aruban and US procedures which include Transportation Security Administration (TSA) mandated screening of passengers and luggage, passengers are requested to be at the airport 3 hours prior to departure.
The voltage in Aruba is 120 volts, the same that is used in North America. No adapters are needed.
If I'd like to hold the reservation while I shop for airfares, what do I do?
Just send us an e-mail and let us know.

About the owner: We have been visiting Aruba, the most revisited island in the Caribbean for nearly a decade. It's the beauty, safety and friendliness of this island paradise that sparked our interest in investing there... and oh yeah, it's out of the hurricane belt. We're from Pennsylvania, but have been renting property in Aruba for over 8 years and continue to grow our portfolio of rentals homes because we love the business of 'vacations'. Through this listing and listings on VRBO and and other rental websites, in addition to our own websites, we have made the process of renting as easy as possible for our guests, who we know are just looking for an affordable vacation in a great location without a lot of aggravation. The rates you see are the rates you pay. We don't tack on added taxes, cleaning fees or utility surcharges, like many rentals. We try to keep it simple, and our success shows in our reviews. The reviews that have been been made by past guests of our properties reflect their experience with us, with their stay at our property and with Aruba. They are listed not only on our website but on public rental websites and they speak for themselves. In fact, we have the most total number of reviews on HomeAway and VRBO, the world's largest rental websites, which is more than any other rental on the island. We encourage you to check us out at the website link listed below or learn more about us on our Linked-In page (because you should know who you are renting from) or shoot us an e-mail and ask away. We'd be happy to answer any questions or concerns you have about traveling to Aruba or about our properties. I think you will find our properties to be the best value around. That is why we use the word GUARANTEE! Well, life is short so be sure to use one week of it in Aruba! Happy Travels, Mike and Kim
Why the Owner Chose Eagle Beach:
This property, which we call Aruba Escape, Aruba is particularly special to us because it is near the world famous Eagle Beach and is also close to Palm Beach. From Aruba Escape, you can spend the day at the beach, snorkeling, out shopping, driving through the national park or just touring the island and then can come home to your relaxing, comfortable and inviting home, with great living space inside and out and a beautiful blue pool to enjoy a swim before dinner or a night out on the town. Being between the two most popular beaches in Aruba gives you the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the quiet, uncrowded beaches of Eagle Beach by day and the nighttime hotspots of Palm Beach at night.
