A Home Away from Home
A Home Away from Home
Aruba Fortress is located in a quiet peaceful neighborhood. But, so close to Palm Beach, High Rise Hotels, & Palm Beach Mall. When we arrived Helen who is so helpful & sweet showed us around the lovely house. Had a fruit basket waiting for us in the fridge, also some bottled water, juice & supplies formour first mornings breakfast. Even thenowner stopped by one morning to check on us to make sure we had everything that we needed. There are 2 air conditioned bedrooms on the main floor, one with an aquatic theme. A spacious bathroom with a large jacuzzi tub. The second floor has a sitting area in the loft outside of the air conditioned Master Suite which is larger than most hotel rooms. Extra large walk in closet, Master bath & a sofa to relax on. There is a roomy balcony off the master suite with a table &'chairs to seat 6 comfortably. The balcony overlooks the pool & jacuzzi which is enclosed & very private. There are also a set of stairs that lead from the balcony to the pool area. There are shaded lounge chairs, comfy seating with a large umbrella to relax when you need a break from the bright Aruba sun. The patio off the living room has comfortable seating with a charcoal grill & they even supplied us with a new bag of charcoal & lighter fluid. The living room has a 2 story cathedral ceiling, & a crescent shaped sofa to enjoy the flat screen tv from. The house also has wifi throughout. We were so comfortable & relaxed there it was just like being in our own home. There is a wooden Dinng room table with seating for at least 6. The kitchen is equipped with full size fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, & washer & dryer. Dishes, pots, pans, silverware, etc are also supplied. Recently heard from the owner that there are making some new changes & upgrades to the house, so check back for the new pics. Can't wait to go back!!

Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: The owners, Dr. and Mrs. Hunt and Helen Riley lived in this villa until they moved out in the summer of 2011 and now live in the Malmok area. The former Riley Residence was then renovated for vacation rental purposes. Dr. Riley is a busy plastic, reconstructive and hand surgeon and has his own private clinic in the Eagle Beach area. Reconstructive and hand surgeries are performed in the local fully equipped and modern hospital of Aruba, the Horacio Oduber Hospital, while cosmetic procedures, including body contouring like liposculpture, tummy tucks and breast augmentations, facial rejuvenation procedures including facelifts, blepharoplasties and rhinoplasties, injectables like botox and hyaluronic acid fillers, are performed in the private clinic, the Riley Surgery Center. Renters are offered discounted prices for cosmetic procedures (visit www.rileysurgerycenter.com for details). Wife Helen is the clinic manager and also does most of the property management, including checking in- and out. The Riley's have two daughters, Amber (1998) and Jade (2000) and a son, litlle Tim (2007). Dr. Riley is also a valued member of the Tierra del Sol Golf and Country Club and features a single digit handicap. After intense renovations, the Palm Beach Fortress was ready for vacation rent in December 2012. The owners make it a point to give maximum value for a reasonable price.
Why the Owner Chose Palm Beach:
This property was the former residence of the owners and has special sentimental emotional value. For these reasons, the villa is kept in top condition. The villa is situated in the calm and rustic Palm Beach residential area, which is completely paved and sleeping policed making it a safe surrounding for children, yet is within walking distance of the sizzling Palm Beach/South Beach entertainment areas and Aruba's most famous beach, the Palm Beach with all kinds of aquatic entertainments. It's private and secure architecture allows you to shut out the world, nude sunbathing, late night skinny dipping or whatever you're comfortable with.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Unique benefits include accessibility to reduced priced cosmetic surgery, optional rental of high end vehicles at reduced prices and a central location to most of Aruba's marquee features like the championship Robert Trent 18-hole golf course at the TDS Golf & Country club.
