About the property

2 story penthouse with private roof terrace and jacuzzi, 3 Bedrooms 3.5 Baths

Welcome to the Penthouse, a perfect vacation paradise for families, friends, honeymooners and couples! The Penthouse is the ONLY 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath penthouse condominium at the Divi Resort and contains everything you and your family would possibly need for a fabulous vacation just steps from gorgeous Eagle Beach which is frequently listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the world! If you would like more info and pictures, find us at aruba penthouse dot com! The Penthouse is located on the first class Divi Village & Golf resort and is just a few minutes leisurely walk through the resort to the most beautiful, yet uncrowded beach on Aruba, and is directly across from the resort's main infinity pool with swim up bar and water slides! In addition to its spacious and beautifully decorated interior, what makes the Penthouse completely unique is its totally private second floor terrace - it is the perfect spot on the island to watch the famous Aruban sunsets and relax in your own private jacuzzi! The private terrace is the largest at the Divi, and has breathtaking views of the golf course and ocean with a sunset view, connecting you effortlessly with the wonderful Aruban breezes and sunshine! It is attractively landscaped with local palms and plants, with comfortable upholstered seating areas, sunning lounges, hammocks, a shade trellis, a dining table which seats 8 comfortably, and a professional standard gas grill. And the terrace is DIRECTLY accessible from the penthouse interior! From the upstairs living and bedroom area, simply walk out onto your private terrace and hop in the Jacuzzi, flop in a hammock or watch the sunset from your choice of several comfy couches with a beverage from the wet bar! The two levels of the Penthouse are connected with an interior spiral staircase, with exclusive elevator to the terrace as well. State of the art lighting makes the evenings on the Penthouse terrace especially wonderful! Call us if you have questions about the Penthouse not answered here - 859-279-9111

Steps from the pool and beach! The penthouse is a short 1 minute stroll from the main infinity pool at the Divi with swim-up bar, cafe and children's areas with water slide. Spectacular Eagle Beach is less than a 5 minute walk or you can hop on the free golf cart shuttle that the Divi runs constantly around the resort which you can pick up right outside the door. The penthouse is stocked with everything you need to enable you to just show up, unpack your swimsuit and hit the beaches! There is a fully stocked “beach closet” with lots of different size coolers, beach toys and chairs & floats for your use.

Because the Penthouse is located in a first class full service resort and not just a 'condo complex' you have the peace of mind knowing you will be taken care of plus all the added extras you won't get from staying at a non-resort property! If you need anything like a refill of the gas can for the BBQ or if there is a drippy faucet, etc all you have to do is call the front desk. In addition, the penthouse local manager will also take great care of you, can do pre arrival grocery shopping, and is your contact on the island to make sure everything about your stay is perfect!

In addition to two spacious ensuite bedrooms with luxury bedding decorated with local art, the first floor of the penthouse has a large and comfortable living, dining room and fully equipped kitchen, which open onto two balconies with seating overlooking the golf course and a lovely stream. It is a wonderful area for birdwatching! There is also a small office with full size computer, free internet and a printer for your use! Wander up the spiral staircase from the living room and you will arrive in the upstairs 'great room'. It is a wonderful entertaining space with a flat screen TV, wet bar with refrigerator, interesting décor and furniture.

The master suite on the main floor has a king bed, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, large marble master bath with double granite sinks, huge double rain shower and separate toilet and bidet room. The second bedroom on the main floor has a king sized bed, which is convertible into two twin beds upon request, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, and private bath with rain shower. You will find the third beautiful private bedroom upstairs, with direct access to the deck and a comfy king bed. Also upstairs, but not connected to the bedroom is a 3rd full bath with rain shower!

Everything is included in your stay! The Divi Owners Residences at the Divi Links Resort are newly constructed, luxury condominiums which enjoy the full benefits of the Divi Resort including restaurants, golf, tennis, fitness centre, swim up pool bar, etc. The beach has beach huts and loungers free to our guests. Unlike at other condos for rent on Aruba, you won't have to lug your own chairs to the beach or pay to rent them every day. Just bring your towel (also provided free by the Divi) and cooler (which we provide)! The nine hole golf course is exceptionally well maintained, with weekly tournaments and specials and you can also take lessons. Additionally, there are 5 tennis courts, non motorized water sports, a fitness center and a rock climbing wall. Windows on Aruba is renowned for gourmet cuisine and romantic views. There are several more casual dining options at the Resort as well.

About Elizabeth Baird

We fell in love with Aruba, its people and way of life from our first visit! I am an American from Kentucky, and my partner is Dutch, and spent his formative years living on neighboring Curacao. The Aruban culture welcomes and embraces everyone who is prepared for the easy life and friendship. We enjoy the Caribbean carefree lifestyle and also the European side of the culture, which influences the cuisine and arts. Our best memories are dancing to live local bands on the pier at Bugaloo, and to fabulous Cuban and Latin bands at Tropical downtown. We also love watching world class kite surfers at the Fishermans' huts at sunset. We have had some wonderful times at the Penthouse already, the deck is a romantic, wind cooled spot for cocktails and a great place to entertain a large group. As we currently live in London, we are best placed to use email to either answer questions or arrange a call.

Elizabeth Baird purchased this condo in 2010

Why Elizabeth Baird chose Aruba

We love the Divi Resort amenities, and there is no equal to beautiful Eagle Beach. You can walk for several miles up the beach, past sea turtle nesting areas and the sunsets are incredible from the terrace and balconies. Although all beaches on Aruba are gorgeous, we chose the low rise resort area due to it being much less crowded than the high rise hotel areas. We also chose this property over other nearby condo options because of all the extras that you get being part of a world class resort that you don't get a just a condo complex. At the Divi resort there are several pools, and if inclined you can play golf, tennis, wind surf, rock climb, and sea kayak. There are several restaurants and bars on the property as well. There is the Alhambra casino at the Divi or you are 5 minutes away from your choice of casinos at the high rise hotels and plenty of live music. Grocery stores are a 2 minute car ride away. We looked at several other condo options and the Divi's combination of amenities and facilities and proximity to the beach were unsurpassed. We think you will love it too!

What makes this condo unique

We DO NOT use a generic managment company to manage the Penthouse and your vacation. We like to share our home with like minded guests and provide a unique personal experience. We have a local friend/manager on the island to answer questions, help with arrangements, do pre-arrival grocery shopping, and assist you on the ground with whatever you may need. You will be well taken care of by us and the Divi! As this is a full service resort and not just a condo complex, you have all the added extras that you won't get from staying at condos!

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 STARS! SOURCE - REVIEW FROM ANOTHER LISTING SITE.

This property looks very good online, but upon arrival we were all shocked, amazed, and grateful that it is FAR better in person! Our experience in the Penthouse was very memorable and priceless. We had 3 couples on our visit and privacy was never an issue. The owners are attentive in ways you won't understand until you book, and that experience remains throughout your stay and departure. We have traveled a lot, and stayed in a variety of hotels, inns, condos, and house rentals, NONE of them have had the endless amenities that the penthouse provides. From the welcome beverages, to the fully stocked kitchen, to first-aid/ sewing kits, to the laundry w/soap/dryer sheets, air mattresses, in house linens, beach chairs, coolers, flippers, snorkels the list goes on.. the office w/ computer/ printer etc., the music/ speakers, hot tub, hammocks and tons of outdoor furniture and GRILL for cooking the catch of the day if you go fishing with "Hats-Off Charters." There really is minimal need to leave the penthouse, at times I think we felt guilty for not being there more on our trip. We had breakfast in on most days- lunch and dinner a couple of times too. We made the most of the wet bars, wine fridges, and blender- making drinks in big batches and using the coolers to bring them to the pool or beach. In full disclosure, we had a couple of minute issues, I emailed Elizabeth who responded lightning fast with a solution. This place felt like home.We were surprised that we never encountered another person coming and going from the penthouse building- it felt so private, quiet, and peaceful. This place by far exceeded our expectations, and that of staying in a traditional hotel setting. You are getting what you paid for, and more, with the penthouse! We all planned to return on the second day of our stay. You can feel confident in this rental. I am a tough reviewer and have relatively high expectations, but I could find little to complain about here! If you are contemplating this opposed to a room or even suite you would do yourself a dis-service. The ocean views are distant, but it really didn't make a difference to us because, the sand is only minutes away or less if you use the trolley. The master bedroom is the best bdrm/bath in my opinion but they are all great! The 2nd fl. bdrm seems most private but the TV is not in the room and that room is brighter/ harder to sleep-in, which should be done on the beach anyways.

Nicest place we have ever stayed on vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved The Penthouse! First trip to Aruba, and we could not have picked a better place. It is truly gorgeous, comfortable, spacious - all we could ever need or hope for! Was also a tremendous value, particularly given how large the Penthouse is. It is clear that this is a home - Elizabeth and Jaap have furnished it beautifully, with local art, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture and the master bathroom shower is to die for!

We arrived on a Saturday and check in was quick and easy. Settled in, marveling at how beautifully decorated (and how big!) the place was. We really enjoyed the nearby infinity pool, with its swim up bar and grill. Eagle Beach was spectacular! An easy 5 minute walk. I have to say though, that we spent more time on the private deck (lounge chairs, swing, hot tub, seating, grill, dining area) and in the Penthouse itself than I had thought we would. Even though there is so much to do in Aruba (and the beaches so spectacular), there were many times we just didn't want to leave!

Another advantage is that this part of the island is much quieter and less crowded than where the "high rises" are. Those beaches were fun to visit but so busy and full of people! The Divi Golf Resort and Eagle Beach were so relaxing. Plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. (We recommend Mulligans at the resort - family friendly menu, really good food, good value.)

The personal touches of the owners, Elizabeth and Jaap, were extensive, and very much appreciated. Before we ever left home, they sent a 35 page guide to the Penthouse, the resort, Aruba itself, "must see and must do" activities, favorite local restaurants, tips and ideas for how to make the whole vacation stress free. Then there was chilled wine and beer when we walked in the door! Relaxation started immediately.

If you are going to Aruba, I highly recommend The Penthouse. If you are trying to chose between Aruba and other island destinations, read the reviews and look at the pictures of The Penthouse and your mind will easily be made up!

Thank you Elizabeth and Jaap! We loved it!

Beautiful penthouse,with all kinds of amenities

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is beautiful, lots of room, and all kinds of thoughtful amenities. Close to the beach, and downtown. Only complaint is that the hot tub motor kicks on in the middle of the night and can be heard through the master bedroom ceiling. Woke me up every night

Owner's Response: Hi Debbra, we're glad you all loved all the extras the Penthouse provides to guests and it's perfect location! One thing everyone usually loves is the peace and quiet of the Penthouse, especially at night. If you had emailed us that you were disturbed by the Jacuzzi noise we absolutely would have had that issue resolved in less than 5 minutes! If there are power outages on the island the jacuzzi timer can get reset and some light sleepers will hear it. This is why we ask guests to immediately let us know if things aren't absolutely perfect. Between us, the great Divi housekeeping and maintenance staff and our local manager we can get any issue addressed asap but we need to know about it. We hope you'll be back next year for a more "dreamy" vacation!

Beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the penthouse for a family reunion. There were 3 couples and it was very spacious. It was also very comfortable. The owners thought of everything anyone could want. The view from the upstairs area was spectacular. You could see the cruise ships in the harbor. Thank you for providing such a wonderful vacation home. We will be back.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This by far was the best vacation in Aruba we've taken. We have stayed at high rises and timeshares and nothing compares to this stay. The condo is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The process from beginning to end was very easy. The owners are very helpful and have thought of everything you need for your vacation in Aruba. We can't wait to get back again and again.

Thank you.

The penthouse suite has everything you need and more, a wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how much detail Elizabeth and Jaap put into their penthouse suite. The penthouse has everything you could need and for those of us who are technically challenged there are instruction manuals for everything. As a family of five, this was our first trip to Aruba and after a long day of travel it was extremely refreshing to walk into a suite and have two bottles of wine along with beer (compliments of Elizabeth & Jaap) waiting for us in the wine fridge. If you are looking for a vacation destination to one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean then I would suggest pairing it with one of the most beautiful penthouse suites on the island.

Best Regards,

Steve & Michele

Map

Car: recommended

Our penthouse has breathtaking views across the beautiful Divi Golf Course to the ocean! From our private terrace you can watch magnificent sunsets in the evening and in the morning watch the cruise ships come in. We are approximately 2 minutes from the main pool and a 5 minute walk to the beach - or take the free Divi shuttle to the beach which stops just outside the penthouse! Unlike the other condo rentals on Aruba, the Divi provides nice beach huts and loungers to all guests free of charge! Just bring your towel and cooler!

Other Activities: The beach and pools at the Divi resort are gorgeous and uncrowded, a vast difference from the high-rise hotel area. Our favorite days are early morning walks on the beach and hanging out on the terrace at sunset with friends or having a romantic evening listening to music and grilling out with just the two of us!

Golf: The Divi Resort has a first class 9 hole course that is rarely crowded and professional golf instruction. There are weekly tournaments and promotions at the lively clubhouse!
