                      Owner info

                      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, 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 (a safe 5 min walk) 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, sunbathing, a late night swim 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 Tierra Del Sol Golf & Country club.
