Clean and as described

  • 4 of 5

We had to book a home last minute as the timeshare my friend was supposed to get for us fell though and this was the only house that was available and in our price range. The house itself was in a decent location within walking distance to the beach (although we rented a car and I suggest you do as well) The house was clean and the air conditioning worked great as did all of the other appliances (besides the dryer but we hung the cloths on a line so that was no big deal) Let me first tell you what I loved about this home and then I will share with what I disliked. I loved the location, cleanliness, Josse the property manager, great coffee pot, relaxing back pool area, plenty of beach toys and chairs. My biggest complaint is not even with this house but the house next door. There are 3 pit bulls or vicious dogs next door that bark ALL NIGHT. The first night we were actually scared that maybe we were in a bad part of town and that is why the neighbors had these dogs, but after staying up all night researching the safety of Aruba we felt comfortable but the dogs never stopped barking. All and all if you are looking to visit beautiful ARUBA this is a good option and both the owner and property manager were helpful and did all they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The pool is small but that's how its advertised so we were not disappointed as some others before were. I would stay here again if the dogs next door were gone but to spend over 10k on tickets and lodging for all of us to not sleep was very disappointing. Makes it hard to leave a bad review as I don't think this is the owners fault but you need to be aware of this and bring ear plugs or dog treats with sleeping medicine in them :)

A comfortable 4 bedroom home with a swimming pool; a 15 minute walk to the Ritz Carlton hotel.

  • 4 of 5

A nice home located in a pleasant neighborhood located a short walk to hotels and beaches. A short drive to the fine restaurants that Aruba has to offer. The home was comfortable for our family of 4 adults and 2 young grandchildren.

Close to high rise area, shopping, and beaches. Large home for our family of 6

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this spacious 3 bedroom home. The pool was the perfect size for cooling off after a day at the beach, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare breakfast and lunch. We were close to the high rises and their beaches, Eagle and Arashi beaches, and shopping and restaurants for night time. The property manager, Jossy, was very hospitable and helped familiarize us with the area.

Great home with most things available for comfort!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with three adult children (2 sons and 1 daughter) stayed at this villa in Aruba. It was very clean and comfortable and it had most of the amenities required to manage home meals. We ate out most nights but the meals we had in were very nice. We sat outside in the atrium and grilled steaks and chicken from the local store located two blocks away. The kids each had a bedroom and felt comfortable, as did we. A second set of clean sheets were provided and needed as the beach sand always seemed to creep in, even after showers. Plenty of towels also available. The location is about 1/2 mile from the beach and high rise hotel shopping district was even a bit further but we enjoyed the walk. If you are not as mobile be sure to rent a car or have a driver. It is a little shorter to the bus stop but very easy to take the bus downtown Orajenstad and to other beaches, etc. We did this a few times.

The pool was a bit smaller then appeared to me in pictures but still very clean and refreshing to cool down from the hot sun. We spent a few afternoons just sitting poolside with a Bright (beer), catching rays, and swimming to cool down. The deck chairs were in great shape and there were pool floaties, beach equipment etc, all available for use. It had a nice rolling cooler and the beaches are all public so we loaded it up and wheeled beer to the beach. Much cheaper when you have 3 adult college kids :) The pool was cleaned one day and out of commission for 3 hours while we were there but we had other plans that day so no big deal.

The Island is very beautiful with nice clean beaches and this villa is in a great location to enjoy it. The people were all friendly and the house manager (Josse) was very accommodating. Josse stopped by the next day to get us the grill and was very helpful. He drove me to the store to show me where it was and also assisted in getting us transportation to the airport. He is very respectful of your space but don't be afraid to ask him questions because he will graciously help you and is very knowledgeable about the island.

The road this villi is on (Bakval) is a thoroughfare between two main roads the go up and down the island. There was a lot of traffic that uses Bakval to go between so I was surprised by the amount of traffic (It was Christmas/New Years so probably more then usual). Most of the walk is sidewalks but drivers don't slow down in Aruba so be careful walking in/near the streets.

Can't beat it!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! The house was just a short walk away from the hotel beach area, where there are more restaurants and activities. We rented a car to use for getting to other more quiet beaches and seeing the "real" Aruba. It had all we needed for cooking and doing our laundry. Josy was a great property manager. Always felt safe. Had a great stay!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that will differentiate my review that everyone on here has already said. The house is beautiful inside and out. Everything is clean and every possible amenity you can think you would need to stay here for a week or even longer; for cooking, relaxing, etc! The owner, Juliya is a pleasure to talk to. I had many questions and Juliya promptly answered all of them. We spent a lot of time in the pool and beside it. If you don't want to cook, there are plenty of restaurants close by. And Aruban restaurants are amazing. I honestly can't say enough about this place!

Highly recommend!
