Absolutely the Best !

  • 5 of 5

I have rented homes in most of the 50 states, all over the Caribbean and several countries in Europe.This house is positively the most thoughtfully furnished ever. The owners have thought of everything, from labeling the light switches to adding power strips to lots of outlets for charging devices.

All the furniture was comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could need, and even the drawers and cabinets were labeled !

Great beach chairs (about 8), great pool area, great garage, easy to use alarm, excellent appliances, good-size pool


The owners stayed in touch regularly, and their agent was very helpful.

We were delayed in arriving because of the snow storm. The owners even volunteered to give us free days on the end of our booking to compensate for our Iost days in various airports!!! Who else does that !!!

This was our 6th trip to Aruba. We hope to go back every year and Bella Ruby will be our first choice, hands down.

Thank you for a great vacation.

One Happy Island, One Perfect Place to Call home on it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Aruba and Christine, Gary and their staff were so kind and helpful. Their attention to detail and cleanliness made Bella Ruby feel like home. We also appreciated their knowledge of the island which helped our family create a memory filled, joyful vacation. We loved the pool, the patio, the entire place!

When we arrived we were greeted and guided around the home. This allowed us time to ask any questions and learn about the place.

Christine thinks of everything...there was even a CD filled with beach vacation tunes cued up and ready to be played. We appreciated all of the little added touches like a cooler and beach chairs that we could borrow as well as detailed directions to restaurants, grocery stores, beaches and honestly anything we asked about.

We really hope to get back to Aruba and will be staying at Bella Ruby again when we do.

I can without hesitation highly recommend staying at Bella Ruby.

Exactly as Described!

  • 5 of 5

This home is clean, safe and has all the amenities you will need except for your rental car. Management is friendly and always available. You will never feel as if you are alone should a problem arise. In addition, Christine is always available through email and provides thoroughly detailed info on everything from good restaurants and beaches to driving directions from the airport to the house. Beaches, restaurants and grocery stores are a 5-10 minute drive away. This was our second time in Aruba and we will never go back to the over-crowded resorts again. From now on, this will be our home in Aruba.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Bella Ruby was more than we could ask for. The pictures you see of the villa are beautiful but don't do it justice. We shared an amazing trip with friends from Australia to celebrate their 24th anniversary and upcoming 50th birthdays. Christine had a bottle of champagne waiting for us to celebrate with our friends. A wonderful gift and gesture. Julie who greeted us was just a sweetheart and always a phone call away if you had any questions. Christine and Gary have an amazing home that we were honored to call our home during our stay. This villa is a wonderful getaway from the tourist area at the end of a long day of excursions throughout the island. I would recommend anyone visiting Aruba to stay here!!! It is your island home away from home.

Another memorable 4th stay at this Gem! Bella Ruby, is nothing short of Fabulous! My husband & I would highly recommend this Beautiful home and property! It is well maintained by its owners, Gary & Christine, as well as the management staff that greets you when you arrive and depart. They( Gary & Christine) have added their own Special touches that make it feel like it is not only their home but yours as well! You will never be disappointed! Please look at all the reviews , they are spot on! We are very fortunate to have found this beautiful home right after it was built 4 years ago and will not even think about another, since we have found Paradise! I don't know if many people know that Aruba is out of the Hurricane belt, you can always count on the weather being amazing, 80 degrees and breeezy. Bella Ruby has everything! First class!! No worries!! Love that you can keep in touch with the family in the states if needed by using Magic Jack phone and make local calls on another phone available in the house for reservations, etc. You can really get away from it all and enjoy!! There are so many great things to say about this property, it's owners, that I could on & on. I have submitted other reviews in the past, so please review. We would suggest renting a vehicle, which is housed in the 2 car garage. Security is top notch and feel very safe in this quaint neighborhood! You are close to everything! You will find everything at your fingertips here! Thank you again Gary & Christine for another wonderful vacation as well as Birthday & Anniversary celebration! Paradise Found!!!!🙂🙂🐬🐬🐬🐬❤️❤️❤️❤️

Very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations. Everything you could possibly need is in this house. The kitchen is fully equipped with every gadget you may need to cook. The house was so clean when we arrived. We felt very at home in this house and have every intention of staying here when we return next year. Christine, the owner of the property, was so accommodating and responded to my emails promptly; an absolute pleasure to deal with. Also the property Manager was a pleasure to deal with. I can't say enough about this property. We are so looking forward to our next vacation to Bella Ruby.
