We Actually all got there!

  • 5 of 5

You guys are like a second family to us.

I, my wife and you know who made us all feel right at home.

We've been going to Aruba for many years and found our extended and somewhat disjointed stay both relaxing and healing.

We ALL can't wait to get back to our Aruba home and friends.

We all miss you folks and your great home.

This is truly the best of Aruba.

ps/ Take time to meet the locals

Great Holiday Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great choice. It has a great location. It's super safe and it's close by the beaches. The best part of this rental were the owners. They were very attentive and gave us a bunch of tips about the island especially taking the holidays schedules into account. Couldn't have been happier with this choice of rental.

Perfect Aruba Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent 10 days at this wonderful house. The owners were very easy to work with. Very quick to respond to questions. We spent the mornings drinking coffee and eating breakfast at the outside patio. Maybe even a morning swim.

The inside was very comfortable. Especially the beds.

The kitchen was complete with anything you might need including cooking spices.

I recommend renting a car. There are so many beaches in Aruba, but you need to drive to them.

The following are some Restaurants that I recommend:

California Lighthouse

Madame Jennettes

Ricardo 's (Wed is all you can eat grouper)

Las R Ramblos

If you have a late flight out, stop at the West Deck !

We recommend the Ritz Carlton for the Casino. Does not seem to be as smokey as some of the others

I want to thank the straw hat sisters for sharing their home with us. The inside is beautifully decorated with an island feel.

Luxurious, romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Straw Hat Sisters Villa in August for our 15 year wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived until the day we left, we enjoyed being surrounded by the many amenities this home has to offer. We loved the beautiful furnishings and felt all the comforts of home- and then some!! This home is a true gem on the island of Aruba! The best accommodations by far! A real treat for such a memorable occasional. Thank you, Straw Hat Sisters, for a lovely stay. We cannot wait to return!!

Never disappoints

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time renting this house and we will return. The owners are very easy to work with. The location is excellent, right in the heart of everything. The house is nicer than shown in the pictures, great gated community, private pool. Aruba is so much fun, great beaches and national parks. Awesome snorkeling. We have rented houses all over the world and this ranks in our top 5. You wont be disappointed.

Something special

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a wonderful week at the sisters' spectacular home in theTierra del Sol golf course community. My husband and I traveled with my daughter, son-in-law and 11yr old granddaughter. My daughter reviewed various properties in many areas of the island, trying to find one that would suit everyone's needs. Sand 'n Sea was our choice! When we arrived, we were greeted by Angela who had some refreshments waiting for us.

The villa was even more impressive than pictured! The home , pool and grounds were meticulously clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped allowing us to make fantastic meals to enjoy in the large outdoor eating area. Each of the two master suites had access to the expansive , private patio area. The villa is perfectly located to provide access to beaches, shopping at the Superstore, dining , etc. We spent a lot of time around the pool, but did visit Arikok park......don't miss it. Roaming donkeys and goats added to the natural beauty of the dunes, beaches and caves. Angella and Nora were very helpful and responsive to all our questions. They were great to work with! This was one of our most wonderful, relaxing vacations and we would choose this property if returning to Aruba.
