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 Pos Chiquito

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!

                                                                          darrell w.

                                                                          Prior to our arrival, Debbie provided all necessary information and was always available via text and email. She was more than accommodating in providing everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Marie met us at the house when we arrived and showed us all of the ins and outs. She was also available if we needed anything during our stay but we never had a need to call. She stopped by one afternoon just to check on us when we were hanging out enjoying the view from the patio while making dinner.

                                                                          The house itself is nice. Spacious, comfortable, clean, and a well stocked kitchen. Tons of snorkel gear and beach toys. It is about 10-15 minutes south of the airport in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to a small grocery store (more of a convenience store) and one of the best restaurants in the area, Marina Pirata. Larger grocery stores are 25ish minutes north- a Costco style store, a grocery store similar to American style stores, and a European style grocery store. Both of the grocery stores were very nice with great selections.

                                                                          The star though, is in front of the house. The front porch looks out to one of the best views ever and you are steps and seconds away from being in the crystal clear water. There is a great little beach, Mangel Halto that you access through the mangrove trees a few houses to the south but our preference was to climb down the rocks to an amazing spot just in front of the house. It has a small strip of sand that is also accessible by walking over in the water from the beach. Mangel Halto is a popular area for locals which we really only saw on the weekends. During the week, the area was mostly empty for most of the day with the occasional tour group visiting from another part of the island. Perfect sunsets right out front EVERY evening. On Saturday's you can buy fish from Mikey who sets up a table right on the street in front and will filet what he has caught. Otherwise, there is a good selection at Daily Fish. Put it on the grill and dinner is served. Other recommendations include dinner at The Flying Fishbone and lunch at Zeerovers. We tried to go to Clemente's pier right down the street but the fishermen there never had fish.

                                                                          We highly recommend this home and will definitely stay here anytime we are in Aruba! Thanks Debbie and Steve.

Home is directly across the street from the best snorkeling spot on the island. Currents can be strong so be careful. Grocery and restaurants are close by. Home is spacious and comfortable with spectacular views. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Every day started with morning coffee on the patio overlooking the ocean. Within walking distance to great restaurant on the water.

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
