This House Location and Pool were perfect!
This House Location and Pool were perfect!
I have been hearing about Aruba for a long time! everyone says the weather is perfect the beaches are so white and clean the food is to die for! and they all go on and on about how wonderful it all is! So finally I decided to go with my husband and a few of our best friends. We started our search and found this beautiful property (the pool boy pic caught our eye) we wanted something close to the beach and casino shopping and restaurants and this house was perfect! close to everything! peaceful quiet and very big! The pool and back yard is amazing we felt like we were in paradise! every afternoon we watched the sky divers jump out right above the house (very cool to see) the stars at night are so bright I couldn't believe it! We truly enjoyed our stay we had a bbq on the grill for lunch then went to see many sunsets then off to dinner! Marie made reservations for us and helped us pick out the best places on the island! she did a great job! Passions was perfect we ate outside on the beach the food was great what an experience. We also ate at Madame Janette which was very crowded we were so happy to walk in and sit right down since we had reservations (no hour wait for us) lol Thanks Marie! Oh and we also of course rented a car Marie set it up we had a free ride to the house and they also drove us back! It was so much easier than we ever thought they were there waiting for us and we were taken away like movie stars! right out of the crowds and traffic! it was perfect they had a big van so all our stuff and all of us (6 adults) could fit! if we took a taxi it would have been a fortune. The beaches were all amazing Palm beach Arashi and Eagle Beach were all right there! So close! and having a car was great! we drove around with out any problems it was very easy to navigate we went food shopping (huge store within a 4 min drive) and drove to all our restaurants (taxi rides are expensive) a car is the way to go! The house manager Reno was a sweet heart he taught us how to use the cell phone (which is a great convenience) he gave us directions and was always available to answer any questions! We all agree this was our best trip! The house location is perfect the pool is paradise and the island is spectacular! we will be back for sure! Thank you!

Loved our vacation here!
Loved our vacation here!
I have been going to Aruba for over 20 years! We always stay at the Marriott or Hyatt but the past few times have been Extremely crowded. This past vacation we decided to look if we could find a house. We wanted a house very close to the hotels which are on Palm beach, we also wanted a house taken care of by the owner did not want to deal with a real estate agent. We wanted a private pool a big kitchen dishwasher and plenty of places to park. Quiet private clean and comfortable! I searched and found this house which fit everything we wanted. The owner called me & sent me an email within minutes of my inquiry. She answered every question. I told her what we wanted and she said that is exactly what she offered! I felt very comfortable talking with her & the family agreed this will be the house. When we arrived the car rental she reserved was waiting with a van for us at the airport free of charge, we went to their office to get the car and then headed over to the house which was close by. The house was Very Clean big open space with the bedrooms all on one side with the bathrooms. Perfect layout for our family. The kitchen was nice the dishwasher was brand new and there were a ton of pots pans dishes a blender for smoothies and a very large frig. plus a washer/dryer. It was terrific walking in the door No lines to check in Or out & no taxes to pay at Checkout! within 10 min we were in the pool! which was sparkling blue and refreshing very clean. After a quick swim we went to buy some groceries for breakfast and lunch, the grocery store was close by & had all that we needed. We decided to eat dinners out & the owner made all of our reservations before we even left NY. The wifi was free & fast! There were lots of beach towels & pool chairs which at the hotel you had to wake up early or you would not get a chair! I could not believe how many humming birds we saw in the garden while swimming! The neighborhood was very peaceful and quiet. The best part was our friends who came at the same time & stayed in the hotel had to get 2 rooms so it cost them in 2 days what it cost us for the entire week! They came over for a BBQ & to swim, They loved this house they are also very unhappy with the crowds at the hotels. You can get to the beach from this house faster than you can go up in the elevator to your room! which by the way you have a beautiful view of from this house. We will be back for sure! only wish we found this house sooner.

Please come back and stay with us anytime! repeat vacationers are our favorite customers ;) Marie
Beautiful family house
Beautiful family house
This summer we stayed at this house for 4 weeks for a vacation. We returned to Aruba to visit our friends and colleagues we knew from the time we lived in Aruba in 2006 and 2007. My brother visited this house earlier and he loved it back then. So it was easy for us to contact Marie and rent this house as well. It is a lovely place. It is a nice neighbourhood and so close to the beach. We were there for three weeks with four and our eldest son came over for one week too. It is a family home and there was enough space for the five of us. The house was well taken care of, it is clean and there are good facilities. The garden is well maintained and the pool is so nice. And Marie,thanks for taking such great care of us. When we had a question your reaction was always very quick and effective. We noticed you were a good hostess and you can be proud of such a fine property. Good luck with your house. When we go back to Aruba and we need a house we will for sure contact you again.

My husband and I shared this home with two other couples. We are early 60's. The house and all furnishings (3 couches in the Living Room!) were clean and well-maintained. The house had almost everything we needed. I've mentioned those things to Marie during and since our stay - and guess what - she's added them! Fantastic follow through on her behalf with everything! Thanks Marie. There was more than enough pots/pans, dishes, etc. We enjoyed having breakfast on the patio every morning. Some days we made lunch @ home (home is where my suitcase is) and brought it along on our journeys, whether the beach or just driving around exploring. There are so many water activities on the popular beaches - we didn't use any of them, but if someone is into that - it can easily be found. An earlier review mentioned no hot water - we didn't realize this until shortly before leaving for our trip. We were a little concerned. I tend to like showers on the warmer scale, and had absolutely no problem with the temperature - it definitely is not cold - it felt warmer than the air temperature - so no problem there. We brought our ipad with us, the wifi (with code provided by Marie) was fast. We rented a car for our stay (Marie also assisted us with this) and toured most of the island. We opted out of her assistance with making reservations for restaurants. We were fortunate that the week we were there it didn't seem that crowded and were able to walk into almost any restaurant - one of our favorites that we didn't see mentioned anywhere was "Tango" (Eagle Beach area) and ate outside. They have a special which is not listed on the menu "Chateaubriand for two with a free pitcher of Sangria-excellent!). There is a little stage set up with evening entertainment that we enjoyed. One night had a singer (I didn't catch his name, but he did a lot of covers, 40s-current including Louis Armstrong - couldn't figure out how he pulled that voice out of his skinny little body!) Another night there was a fellow who played sax and clarinet, also good. They both interacted with the audience (tips are very much appreciated). There were people dancing in the little floor area by the stage. All in all we had a comfortable stay and would recommend to anyone looking for a house rental (although I would definitely recommend renting a car!)

Loved, loved, loved this villa. It was very clean and spacious. My kids loved the pool. It is in a very convenient location. Arashi beach is 5 minutes by car and is a fantastic beach. Very close to shopping and some great restaurants. The home's owner, Marie, was so helpful in planning our trip. This island is an amazing island and Marie was able to get reservations at restaurants for us, plan a jeep tour, get our vehicle rental, and lead us to some real neat spots on the island. Definitely planning another trip to Aruba and will definitely rent this villa again. Made some great family memories that we will never forget. Thanks Marie!

Really great vacation home
Really great vacation home
Although it wasn't our first time to Aruba, it was our first time renting a house. We were especially apprehensive about sharing a home with two other couples, but couldn't believe how perfect the house was for us. We were able to enjoy each others company but still had privacy. It was truly a great way to vacation without the expense of three separate hotel rooms. The house is set on a road with no through traffic so we spent our evenings relaxing poolside, catching up with our old friends, without the hustle and bustle sounds of hotel district. We were a few minutes drive from the golf courses and within walking distance of the beach. Marie was so helpful in finding restaurants that were outside the "touristy" areas but still on the beach so we could watch the spectacular sunsets without the crowds. We are all looking forward to returning & hope the house will be available for our next trip.

Wonderful place to stay
Wonderful place to stay
This house is a great place to stay in Aruba. Close to the High Rise Hotels (Marriott etc) but far enough from all the hassle. You can easily walk to the beach and the shopping area. I recommend rent a car so you can easily visit all the parts of the island. And there are so much more good restaurants on the island besides the chain restaurants on the hotel strip. The pool is great, even bigger than the picture shows. We loved to stay on the shaded porch, having breakfast, dipping in the pool, get a tan, and having lunch. It is so nice having your own pool and porch. The house became our home at Aruba. The owner is very helpful and with small problems, she immediately takes action to fix it. When you email her, she always gives quick response. The house has airco in every room, great wifi, and the living is huge. The kitchen has no dishwasher. In addition, the house has no hot water tap. Therefore, to do your dishes properly, you have to heat up water every time. There is also no hot water in the bathroom. However, after a first shiver the water is ok. The water is never cold in Aruba. The house is on a dirt road that can become pretty muddy after heavy rainfall, but this gives you the idea of living in the real Aruba. After 3 weeks, we felt sorry to leave and we certainly will come back another time

Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your 3 weeks stay and felt so at home. It is nice to hear that you were able to come across many of the treasures of the island. It pleases us that you experienced Aruba like true Arubans. After enjoying the warmth of Equatorial living, residents find an ambient shower truly refreshing and you are correct, the water is never cold in Aruba. We look forward to you being our guests and your next visit. If you need any assistance with your planning or excursions, we are always hear to help. Thank you! Marie
Our most amazing vacation ever!
Our most amazing vacation ever!
Our family was so excited to come to Aruba and could not believe the luck to find this property. It was our first trip to the island and Marie made it our most amazing vacation ever. From arranging our airport pickup and rental car to helping with our excursions and dinner reservations, Marie assisted us in enjoying every minute of our visit without any stress or worries. Marie's knowledge of the island ins and outs was as good as having our own private tour guide. The house was incredible -- we had every amenity we could ask for -- washer/dryer, wi-fi, private pool, air conditioning! We could have walked to the beaches, casinos, restaurants and shops. Our children, six and nine years old, can't wait to go back and neither can we.

Owner response: It was my pleasure! I am so glad your trip was enjoyable and that my recommendations minimized the stress of your first visit. Planning is one of my most favorite things to do, especially for first-timers. Some of the most delicious restaurants in Aruba are hidden treasures and I am glad that I was able to introduce them to you. I look forward to your next visit and to help making it as successful as your first! Thank you for picking our house! Cheers, Marie
I took my children to our first island adventure-Aruba!! It was the most amazing vacation I have ever had. True to their words, the owners' assisted me in avery way possible. Through their great expertise and knowledge of the Isalnd I was able to navigate my way around (safely) the island, dine in charming (yet affordable. I am a single mom) places, rent ski-doos, and do all of the "touristy" things that my children wanted to do!! Being able to have our own "home", as opposed to a hotel was a huge plus! The house was ridculously large for us, and we felt in the lap of luxury! This beats any hotel living for me! Plus, like mentioned on website, although the Marriott is close by, we never had to fight for chairs and always ahd a quiet spot on a otherwise busy beach! We just got back, and I have already re-booked for next year. I am hoping to sneak in a trip in between, too. LOVE IT!!!! Thank you for the best vacation ever!

Perfect Villa for our Vacation
Perfect Villa for our Vacation
My family spent 10 awesome days on Aruba and loved using this villa as our base camp. We opted to rent a villa instead of a hotel/condo to have more space and allow our kids ages 3 and 7 to let their hair down without fear of them disturbing people in the next room. The villa has the perfect layout for young kids - all the bedrooms are on the same level opening onto a large common room that has a door out to the pool area. Great for keeping tabs on where the youngsters are. Kitchen was well appointed, a/c worked great, washer/dryer meant we didn't have to pack as much, pool was a beautiful oasis with lots of room to play, lounge, chill out, relax. Neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Daily routine included wife’s morning walk to Palm Beach while I had coffee by the pool, early morning snorkel at Malmok (5 minutes away), hit a beach or activity by 10am, picnic lunch, late afternoon pool time, dinner out somewhere (lots of choices close by) or grill out under the stars. Rinse. Repeat. Villa for 10 nights was very reasonable in comparison to the hotel/AI or condo/timeshare rentals. Marie was wonderful to work with, very prompt, and helpful in helping us plan our first trip to an island she obviously loves. Can't wait to go back. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
