Property description

This 5 bedroom, 4 bath villa is very private and secured, fenced off by 12 feet high foliage and remote controlled motorized gated garage which easily accommodates up to 4 full-sized cars. This villa easily sleeps 10-12 persons, including 2 hard-to-choose from master suits fit for a honeymoon.The fully equipped kitchen includes most common seasoning and sauces, over sized coffee maker with starter coffee- and tea packages, microwave, dishwasher and full laundry with dryer. Separate breakfast and elegant formal dining areas. Complimentary villa-wide wifi and cable tv. Complimentary (local) telephone calls with villa wide intercom service. Daily maid service is included for that hotel-like feeling. In-Home Chef cooking is available.
Elegant Living room with flat screen smart TV with HDMI and USB jacks and complimentary Apple TV. Fenced-off kids friendly outdoor pool with overflow hot-tub Jacuzzi. Down-stairs two-bedroom close-able suite with large indoor Jacuzzi, ideal for a family with kids needing parenting, having one king size bedded bedroom and the other with two full-sized beds. Upstairs Master suite equipped with king-size bed, flat screen tv, walk-in closet and bath with rainfall shower and in-bath sitting, private balcony with amazing resort views. Poolside 2nd master suite also with king size bed, private bath, kitchenette with microwave and flat-screen tv. Additional (5th) suite with two full size beds, private bath, kitchenette and optional pull-out king size sofa. Cozy loft sitting area. Front porch sitting area. Poolside area with romantic love seat with umbrella, cozy poolside lounge chair corner and a comfy gazebo featuring a 9-piece wicker sofa set and ambient electric blue lightning, complete with Bluetooth speakers. Backyard or poolside bbq (both gas and coal provided) areas. The villa is fully air-conditioned and fanned and has hot and cold water running throughout. Lockable storage in- and outdoors. Safe-vault on site for your valuables. Although it states that the villa easily accommodates 10-12 persons, parties of up to 18 persons have enjoyed their stay here. Prices are very competitive and are based on an occupancy of 10 adults. There is a surcharge for every adult over 10, children between the ages of 3 and 15 count as half an adult while babies under the age of 2 are free of any surcharge. Fully air conditioned, there is plenty of room around the villa for pull-out sofa's (provided). For smaller parties, the villa can also be rented in her 3 (main house only) or 4 bedroom version at even better pricing, so do inquire about that if your group is small. We never rent the spare suites independently, so you still keep your privacy when renting a smaller version of the villa.
The beach itself, the Palm Beach with it's (South Beach) entertainment areas, is a safe 5min walk away featuring sizzling nightlife, bars, casino's, restaurants, cinemas, shopping malls and high-end, high rise hotels with an abundance of beach activities. And, because all beaches in Aruba are public, one can set up camp on any beach, even in front of the Hyatt, Marriots or the Ritz Carlton (beach chairs and coolers provided in the villa). Palm Beach, arguably one of the finest beaches in the world, has no beach side rental properties apart from the marquis hotels. Renting a villa in Palm Beach Village, just across the road to the beach and the touristic center of Aruba, is therefor your best option. Having 5-star amenities, the Palm Beach Fortress is smack in the middle of it at a fraction of the price of the marquis hotels in front of her. Grocery- and liquor stores are just around the corner including most fast food franchises like the McDonald's, Wendy's, KFC and Domino's Pizza. It is close to everything and you will be hard pressed to find a better location. Luxuriously equipped, you really don't need to bring anything other than your toothbrush.
Palm Beach is arguably one of the best beaches in the world because it has no catch. No sharks like the Red Sea beaches, no deadly jellyfishes like off Bondi Beach, Australia. No sea snakes or water spiders like in Thailand's Ko Pikhet or Ko Samui. No vending harassment like Jamaica's Negril Beach. Just crystal clear warm sea water and snow white beaches. The best part is the embarrassing safety: you can fall asleep for hours and still wake up to find your wallet or camera just where you left them.
The villa is associated with Aruba's premier wedding planner, so why not have a wedding here. Aruba's most famous Dive Master is also associated with the villa so you can plan some nifty dives or even get your internationally acknowledged PADI dive certificate in 5 days. The owner, Dr. Riley, has lived in this villa for years and is a member at the prestigious Tierra del Sol 18-hole Robert Trent Jones designed championship golf course and can arrange hard-to-get T-times at member-guest prices. Many touristic outlets are close by the villa. Off-road quad trips, bicycle rentals, beach activities like catamaran sailing, deep sea fishing or simply some fun beach tennis.
Many prefer renting a villa like the Palm Beach Fortress over an expensive hotel because a hotel does not have the privacy a villa offers and is fivefold the price. And you keep the cool amenities and a lot more money in your pocket to do what you really came for: enjoying the island feeling, the beach and Aruba's year round sunny weather (it never rains in Aruba and if it does, you don't have to get wet) cooled by the ever present Passat winds. Aruba is one of the premier destinations in the Caribbean because of it's high standard of living, stable political climate (Dutch owned), ridiculous safety, of course the sun and world wide renowned beaches but primarily by it's utterly friendly and always ready to help people, most of which speak 4 languages fluently, including English and Spanish.
So if you're planning a visit to Aruba, weather it's a short winter break or having a wedding, a summer vacation or a golf trip with friends, don't hesitate to contact us. We are always ready to make your trip a memorable one.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: The owners, Dr. and Mrs. Hunt and Helen Riley lived in this villa until they moved out in the summer of 2011 and now live in the Malmok area. The former Riley Residence was then renovated for vacation rental purposes. Dr. Riley is a busy plastic, reconstructive and hand surgeon and has his own private clinic in the Eagle Beach area. Reconstructive and hand surgeries are performed in the local fully equipped and modern hospital of Aruba, the Horacio Oduber Hospital, while cosmetic procedures, including body contouring like liposculpture, tummy tucks and breast augmentations, facial rejuvenation procedures including facelifts, blepharoplasties and rhinoplasties, injectables like botox and hyaluronic acid fillers, are performed in the private clinic, the Riley Surgery Center. Renters are offered discounted prices for cosmetic procedures (visit www.rileysurgerycenter.com for details). Wife Helen is the clinic manager and also does most of the property management, including checking in- and out. The Riley's have two daughters, Amber (1998) and Jade (2000) and a son, Tim (2007). Dr. Riley is also a valued member of the Tierra del Sol Golf and Country Club and features a single digit handicap. After intense renovations, the Palm Beach Fortress was ready for vacation rent in December 2012. The owners make it a point to give maximum value for a reasonable price.

Why Palm Beach, Aruba:
This property was the former residence of the owners and has special sentimental emotional value. For these reasons, the villa is kept in top condition. The villa is situated in the calm and rustic Palm Beach residential area, which is completely paved and sleeping policed making it a safe surrounding for children, yet is within walking distance (a safe 5 min walk) of the sizzling Palm Beach/South Beach entertainment areas and Aruba's most famous beach, the Palm Beach with all kinds of aquatic entertainments. It's private and secure architecture allows you to shut out the world, sunbathing, a late night swim or whatever you're comfortable with.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Unique benefits include accessibility to reduced priced cosmetic surgery, fillers and Botox. Central location to most of Aruba's marquee features like the championship Robert Trent 18-hole golf course at the Tierra Del Sol Golf & Country club.
