Location is quiet and peaceful on a high location in rural Calabas with ocean views on the east, north and west. Property borders undeveloped rough side of the island with direct line of sight to the island's north coast and overlooks Alto Vista chapel and high rise hotels. Beaches are less than 10 minute drive with restaurants and shopping the same distance. Beautiful, peaceful and quiet away from the hustle and traffic of the island's tourist areas.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are Christine and Raffi Maduro and we met in Aruba in 2010 and were married in 2012. I (Christine) am from Iowa and he (Raffi) is a native Arubian. We bought our Calabas home in 2011 and spent the next 2-3 years renovating and adding on the the home. In 2013, circumstances led to a relocation to the United States and since we plan to return to the island in the future, we have decided to rent our home for other visitors to enjoy!
Why the Owner Chose Calbas: We were fortunate to be related to our home's first owner and builder. The property is part of an old family homestead and as Calabas property is difficult to obtain, we jumped at the opportunity to live there. Though the home needed work, we knew the location and 'barebones' couldn't be faulted. We LOVE the quiet of the setting and better views can't be found anywhere on the island. Since our purchase, we have added on several rooms, completely remodeled the bathrooms and kitchen and repainted inside and out. We have also landscaped and fenced the yard making it secure and goat-free!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Since moving to Calabas we have completely fallen in love with sitting on the back porch in the evenings. As the sun goes down, we watch the hermit crabs crawl through the yard as the sky and ocean turn from blue to pink to purple. All day long the wind blows keeping the house cool and at night, the cool island breezes make sitting outside heavenly.
