About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 10

Joan and Ron welcome you to Aruba, Palm Beach, and the Parrots' Nest.

There is no holiday charge for Thanksgiving or Carnival.

This beautiful home is located near the best beach in Aruba, Palm Beach, which is close to Eagle and Arashi Beaches, the California Lighthouse, Divi and Tierra Del Sol golfing, casinos, fine dining and just about every water sport imaginable, including wind/kite surfing. Walking out onto the covered patio or tiki bar you will be offered a view of a cactus grove with wild green parrots and iguana, a Brazilian stone lounging area surrounding a 463 sf (43 sm) backyard swimming pool (beautifully lighted at night), and a view of the salt pond, and in the distance, the Caribbean and its spectacular sunsets.

We are receiving inquiries almost daily, so we must honor confirmed reservations on a first come, first serve basis. The best method to inquire is email, which we check several times per day. While stays can be for as few as 5 nights during the rest of the year, we request a stay of at least 7 nights during the holiday season. The weekly rate will be prorated by night, as at other times of the year.

The living room features two sofas, two loveseats, and a dining table that seats 8. On the patio and around the pool, there are two tables that seat 10 people comfortably. Also provided is a gas grill.

Cable TV offering 57 channels is hooked to all of the TVs. In the living room there is also a 3 CD/cassette/am-fm entertainment center. And throughout the house, there is high speed Wi-Fi access through our wireless router. Also, the house has a telephone that can be used for local and international incoming calls and outgoing local calls.

If you enjoy a little gambling, the Marriott Beach Club Casino and Ritz Carlton Grand Casino are only a few minutes away. There are many other casinos just a little farther south toward the capital city of Oranjestad. Also, Oranjestad has world class duty free shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, and bars, all within a 5-10 minute drive.

There are many rental cars companies outside of the airport terminal; we recommend Tropicar or Super Car Rental for very competitive rates and excellent service.

Again, welcome to 'One Happy Island'

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, this was the perfect house for an extended family vacation. The home is beautiful and well maintained with a large, well equipped kitchen. There are 3 dining tables, 2 grills and a tiki bar on the patio with plenty of space to enjoy meals outside. We had a great time walking to the beach; this house is close to kite surfing, wind surfing and snorkeling tours. The pool is clean and offers a relaxing change from the sand at the beach. The hosts are courteous and very knowledgeable of the area; they made our entire vacation worry free and communicated with us about the home in advance. If you're traveling to Aruba with a large family or multiple couples, this is the home for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Mary Louise and family! We also truly appreciated the lovely note you left us @ the house. Now we're very happy to share your "official" review w/ vrbo/homeaway users who may be looking for a large home. Many of our guests have rented cars, but those who didn't liked our proximity to beaches and everything else in the area (restaurants, shops, casinos, etc.)

Great Vacation in Aruba May 2013

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described: spacious, well maintained, clean, close to Palm Beach. The pool is clean and nice. The house is located in villas area which is very quiet. The AC system is good with separate units in each room. The owners were extremely accommodating with everything from the start to the end, they answered through e-mail within a couple of hours, and took care of small issues which came up in the house right away. The owners who are Americans established really efficient network of local people to take care of the house. Very important: no hidden fees, no surprises. Will definitely recommend this property to others

Amazing friends & family vacation house - perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Sunny and Ron!

We spent an amazing week at your beautiful house and highly recommend it to everyone.

What we loved the most about it:

1. Perfect location- right behind Ritz Carlton resort. 5 min walk to the beach.

2. Spacious beautifully decorated outdoor area around crystal clean pool.

Comfortable lounge chairs, plenty of shade. For the sun lovers - the upper deck with an ocean view.

3. All 4 bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and have plenty of storage areas.

4. The living / dining room is very accommodating with a long table, 3 comfortable couches and several side tables.

5. Well equipped kitchen with plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans and even a spice rack!

6. Overall the house is very clean, comfortable and well organized.

Shopping bags for the supermarket, lots of beach towels - all the little details, that made our stay truly enjoyable!

We are looking forward to staying at your house again.

Sincerely yours Alex and Paul.

It really was a 5-8 minute to the beach but with the great pool and back yard it was wonderful to just stay at the house and relax also. Would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Julie! We're so glad that you and your group had a wonderful time! Thank you for taking the time to write your review---it was our pleasure to host you. We also sometimes stay in the yard---counting the iguanas in the cactus/divi-divi trees, lounging by the pool, enjoying the brilliant sunsets from the roof deck, etc. Please come back!

Everything was as described. The location is perfect. Sunny was very patient with me and answered my many questions! The pool, patio, and deck were amazing. We spent lots of time outside. All the air conditioners worked great. We had a great experience and hope to come back!

Amazing family vacation home! We can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Ron & Sunny's home was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. My family and I have been to Aruba many times and have always stayed in hotels or time shares. This year we were all able to vacation together and thought staying in a house may be more convenient. After our recent stay I can absolutely say that we will be making this a yearly tradition. Ron & Sunny were so informative and helpful during our booking process making everything so easy for us. We arrived earlier than the check in time but were allowed to drop our luggage off at the house which was wonderful. The house was spotless and secure and perfect for our group. We had never been for New Year's Ever before and the fireworks from the roof deck were absolutely stunning! We were walking distance to the beach but rented a car to make going to the grocery store and out to dinner easier. We loved the privacy of being in our own home as opposed to in a large hotel. We spent many nights on the patio playing games and enjoying quality family time without having to worry about disturbing other guests. At the end of our stay we experienced some bad weather at home in Boston and flights had been cancelled. I emailed Ron & Sunny that morning in the off chance that they may let us stay an extra night so we wouldn't have to scramble to find new accommodations. We heard back from them instantly that they had no one going into the house for another 4 days so we could stay. We ended up getting stuck an extra 2 days and could not be more grateful for Ron & Sunny's kindness & hospitality. They went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great experience and it didn't go unnoticed. Thank you again and we are already counting down the days until next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Murphy, Warner, and Lind families, it was our pleasure to host you! You were wonderful guests right from the first time you contacted us. We are so happy that you had a wonderful time! (And just to brag a little bit, but other New Year's Eve guests have also enjoyed the fireworks from our upper deck.) We are truly grateful for your writing the review, Jessica---we know you're a very busy person. We truly hope you'll be back often! Thanks again! All the best, Sunny and Ron

A five minute walk is Palm Beach, a beautiful white sandy beach where the the Pro Am wind-surfing tournament is held annually. There are also plenty of white sandy beaches up and down the west coast and within driving distance; most within a 10 minute drive. All beaches in Aruba are public (this includes the beaches at the hotels) and most have free public parking areas. Also, most of the hotels have umbrellas and chairs, but may charge visitors for use. Boca Catalina, one of the best snorkeling locations on the island, is only a 3 minute drive.

The public bus stop is only a 5 minute walk; the buses provide service to most of the beaches, Oranjestad, and, with connections, the south and middle parts of the island.

Other Activities: Boating, shopping, kayaking, miniature golf
