"My husband and I had never rented off this web site before, and I was very hesitant to send off a check for the entire amount of a week's condo rental prior to our arrival.
I had contacted a few other owners of other properties and I did not have a comfort level ensuring me that the unit we prepaid would be there when we arrived in Aruba.
The owner of this property was entirely different and I cannot say enough good things about his professionalism.
After we first spoke on the phone and I told him I wanted to rent his unit, he immediately sent off a confirmation number through Marriott via email. This was even before I had sent him a check. Still skeptical, I double checked with Marriott prior to sending off the check and it was indeed just as he said it was in his email.
Once our check arrived, he then went even more out of his way with phone calls and emails advising us on restaurants and things to do on the island including grocery stores and which water sports companies were the best.
He arranged with Marriott a high floor, ocean view and extra towels and pillows, and most importantly a late check out! He personally took it upon himself to make sure everything went smoothly from the very beginning with the initial payment.
The unit itself is lovely and a great place for a family. Very large and spacious and had everything you could possibly want or need.
The beach is beautiful. Crystal clear water and white sand. It is a great island for kids because there is a lot to do and see.
My personal recommendation is to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle and not be stuck with cabs and tours that take you out for an afternoon for $150 apiece. Aruba is an easy island to get around with lots of 4 wheel drive roads and paved roads. My teenage kids both sighted that as the highlight of the trip."
