Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Enjoy this spacious three bedroom, three bath house with its’ breathtaking view of the Caribbean! Share easy conversation on the beautiful open back veranda, which is constantly cooled by the trade winds. Have a refreshing beverage on your own front patio overlooking the Caribbean.

There is a larger beach tucked beyond a little stand of trees, complete with palm umbrellas to shelter you from some sun. The weather is fairly steady at 80 degrees with a constant trade wind, though not as strong as in the high rise area. 'Spanish Lagoon' is home to a wide variety of beautiful fish for the beginner as well as the snorkel and scuba enthusiast. It is the premier dive and snorkel site on the island. Take a stroll on the bank or pause at the concrete bench & table of the water’s edge right in front of your vacation paradise.

Aruba is a 52 week island. With less than 20 inches of rain a year, the weather is near perfect year round.

Your house will accommodate six people privately or up to nine with the included day bed and queen size air mattress. Bring the whole family or just enjoy a relaxing vacation for two! If the answer is location, location, location, we've GOT IT!

We have tried to incorporate everything we would want if we were visiting home away from home. Check out the Amenities Page for the full list of conveniences this house has to offer! Come back again and again to see what has been added.

About Debbie

We met through e-harmony late in 2004. Fell in love immediately. We married in March of 2006 & came to Aruba for our honeymoon. GetAwayAruba is the result of that trip.

Debbie purchased this house in 2006

Why Debbie chose Aruba

Welcome to our little piece of paradise. We came to this “happy island” in March 2006 for our honeymoon. We loved the weather, the food, and the people. We didn't want to leave. We drove 350 km during that visit, searching for a place to come back to again and again.

Spaans Lagoenweg 43 is that place.

What makes this house unique

The open view from the back veranda, right through the great room, across the front lanai, beyond the beautiful gardens to our little stretch of beach and into the inviting lagoon. This three bedroom rancher is nestled in a small residential community. The neighbor folk are friendly and helpful, as we found all natives to be.

There is a larger beach tucked beyond a little stand of trees, complete with palm umbrellas to shelter you from some sun. The weather is fairly steady at 80 degrees with a constant trade wind. The lagoon is warm enough to just “walk right in”. It is like having a large shallow pool with no chlorine needed. There is a coral reef at the outer perimeter, home of many beautiful fish. A snorkel experience that you can walk to!

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW! What a place! There was not a bad beach or restaurant on the island. Baby Beach & Arashi were great for snorkeling(along with "right out front"). The Flying Fishbone, Marina Pirata, & B55 to name a few were our picks for eating. All were great. From the Rocky North Shore to the Beaches, it will be a place to come back to.......

Relax Aruba is great

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your home. Had everything that we needed. The hidden beach across the street with great swimming and snorkeling. While my husband and I were snorkeling we seen all the beautiful colored fish, an octopus, eel and found a conch shell wth crab living in it. We really enjoyed this! The view was beautiful and enjoyed our mornings sitting on the front patio and then later watching sun go down. Thank you for the use of your home and hope to return. Vicki and Jim

Great Location

Nice home right on the beach with beautiful views of the sunsets. Home is fully furnished with great amenities. Every day started with morning coffee on the patio overlooking the ocean. Within walking distance to great restaurant on the water.

Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your beachfront home. From the swimming across the street, coffee on the deck in the morning and watching the pelican in the cove.

The Super Store had great products, especially the desserts and meats.

We really liked Baby Beach – much less crowed than Eagle and Palm beaches.

Lunch at the Lighthouse was wonderful and the sights amazing. The Driftwood was also a great place to eat.

But we saved the best for last – the Flying Fishbone Restaurant. It was unique with your feet in the sand or water. Spectacular views and great food! A memorable last night in Aruba.

Best spot in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is right on the beach at the best snorkeling spot in Aruba, and away from the tourist area. Debbie and Steve were fantastic to work with. The house has great amenities and is well stocked with everything you need. We are a family of five with 3 children, and the house was perfect for us. We will definitely stay here again when our travels bring us back to Aruba.

Best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed three weeks in the high rise/low rise strip on two previous visits and this has distinct advantages. At not many other places can you simply walk out the front door to a unique beach and an excellent snorkling spot. It's interesting to be imersed in the "real Aruba" away from the hotel strip, but yet with some excellent restaurants directly on the water close by. We liked Marina Pirata, The Flying Fishbone, and Zeerover's... super ambience, great food, and relaxing. The house is very well stocked and comfortable. Debbie and Steve were very helpfull and attentive to our stay, thier written advice and house hints was useful and much appreciated. We had a wonderful stay there.

coming back again

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time @ Deb and Steve's vacation house, we love coming back there. It's the best location and wonderful beach right across the house. Our family loved to snorkel, swim and fish. There's full kitchen,we cooked fresh caught fish, we loved to eat also at local restaurants like Marina pirate and Lagrangia. The house is very good equipped with three bedrooms, nice kitchen,and a family room. Our family of six were nice fitted. We'll be back again, thank you Deb@Steve
