Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Anita and Dave,

Just wanted to tell you both what a pleasurable experience it has been meeting you. Anita, even during course of communicating to organize the condo rental

you were a queen of charm and professionalism, you just made whole process easy and uncomplicated.

Wacamaya was everything it is described to be on the rental site. That was such a relief because in past have been disappointed many times when complex

doesn't live up to its description. Wacamaya is what a vacation should always be, comfortable, relaxing and it definitely has a " HOME " feeling.

We loved the first week getting around on foot and bus everywhere. Condo is perfectly situated only a 10 minute walk to high rise beach near Marriot, and

second week with the car rental gave us a chance to visit so many other attractions that were a little distance away.

Anita, you are a true sweetheart. I have witnessed how your kindness has no limits, not only do you move heaven and earth to make your condo renters as

comfortable and happy as possible but I have seen how wide your kindness spreads when you actually went out of your way to help a renter who rented from

another owner who was not available at that time, by lending her your own personal hairdryer.

Wacamaya is a true gem and anyone lucky enought to rent there will get the lucky bonus of having to deal with Anita and Dave "rare gems". What else

would we expect to find in a garden of eden "Wacamaya" in ARUBA.

Quaint and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Deceptive from the street but really nice when you get in.

Gates can be a pita, property is well kept and the pool was perfect.

I’d stay here again.

Be prepared to buy spices and condiments as none were here when we stayed. We did leave some for the next happy visitors.

Ps; bed was crazy comfortable!!!

Amazing property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Wacamaya condos for a week in unit 6a. This unit is nicely updated and was very clean. It has everything needed to enjoy your time in Aruba without being in the busy tourist area.

The location is perfect. It’s only a 2 minute drive to the beach and the high end resorts (Ritz, Marriott). You can enjoy the beaches and resorts but then return back to the condo for a quieter experience.

Dave and Anita were very helpful and responsive during the entire booking and rental period. I will definitely stay in the unit when I return to Aruba in the future.

  • 5 of 5

This truly has become our home away for our annual trips to Aruba. Not only is the condo comfortable to relax in the pool area and other guests areas like the bbq grills feels like your own backyard resort. The other guests on the property have always been mature friendly and respectful.

Perfect Place for Us

  • 5 of 5

We were in Aruba last week during Our Spring Break Holiday, and it was quite busy in Aruba. We were so happy that we could retreat back to our Oasis waiting for us at Wacamaya Apts after adventuring out for the day. We spent some time by the high rise hotels and I was so relieved we decided to stay here instead of one of the big resorts. Even though the apartment is a 1 bedroom, it was perfect for my husband and I and 11 year old son. It was just so easy.... no trek down to the pool, just walk out the front door and there it is. I love that they provide a cooler for their guests.... we would pack up some sandwiches and beverages for the day and off we went. We parked right outside the back door, and had to walk about 5 steps back into the apartment. The place is exactly as nice as pictured. Thanks David and Anita for all your help and tips to make our vacation the perfect getaway!

Nearest Beach
0.5 Miles
Palm Beach
Car: recommended

There are watersports booths all along the beach if you want to snorkel, dive, windsurf, boating, deep sea fishing etc. If you have your own snorkel gear there are many places that you can go and snorkel on your own. Malmok Beach and Arashi Beach and along this area are the spots to snorkel. A lot of people also go to Baby Beach at the other end of the island to snorkel.

All the beaches in Aruba are public. You will find many spots along the beaches with huts and you can use these and take some beach towels etc. There is a cooler bag and two beach chairs in the condo and some floaties that you can use also.
