Nice, cozy and well organized house in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Dora has been great. Cleaning was really accurate and well done. The small pool has been a great playground for our kids; kitchen is well equipped and you can find everything you need for cooking. Despite we are not crazy for air conditioning, there are very good A/C equipment in every rooms. Jeanine was immediately available and supportive any time we had necessity or simply questions. Honestly we did not miss anything at Casa Dora...enjoy it!!!

Casadora

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for a couple with orwithout young kids. It's a two bedroom house. One BR is suitable for a couple, the other is best suited to young kiddos.

It's a short walk to the ocean, perhaps 6 city blocks. It is residential in nature. Most of the peeps are full time residents but a sizable minority of the area homes are rented to visitors. The Casadora neighborhood is comfortable, quiet and safe.

The unit is well equipped. You will need the beach chairs and cooler! I cook at 'home' about half the time. (Side note: both Lings and Super Food have superb fresh local fish at absurdly low prices.) Grill some ribs, steaks or burgers on the Weber.

Probably the nicest thing about the unit is the compound which surrounds it. It's your own private park.

Wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Jeanine has done a great job making sure all the comforts of home are provided at Casa Dora. She provides dishes, pots and pans if you want to cook. The home is clean and has a great "beach" feel. Air conditioners worked great, only used them in the bedrooms. The front rooms had a lovely breeze coming in the windows. Great patio with comfy furniture, wonderful hammock and small pool for dipping in to cool off. There is a grill too.

This property is a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. We loved the Palm Beach area, so many bars and restaurants to choose from. The bus stop is right at the Marriott and cabs are easy to get as well. We would spend the day at the beach and walk our way into town for dinner.

There is a helpful blue binder in the home, be sure to read through it. Great little grocery store in walking distance if you only need a few things. We grabbed fruit and snacks and lunch items. Jeanine also has pamphlets for various tourist attractions on the book shelf along with the library of books.

I would highly recommend this property. I stayed with my sister but you could easily have 2 couples or a family of 4-5 be comfortable. I would definitely come back to Casa Dora

The Only Place to Stay in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with Casa Dora. It truly felt like our home away from home. We traveled back to Aruba 18 years after my wife and I honeymooned there with our two daughters, and now they have fallen in love with it just like we did. Casa Dora was a huge reason why. Coming back to "home" each day and cooling off in the pool with a cold drink was absolutely the best. The location is close to everything, and the neighborhood was super quiet. We did an initial shopping trip to Super Foods and picked up some breakfast/lunch/snack items and literally only ate one meal a day out and saved a ton of money that way! Jeanine has the place super clean and well stocked with anything you would need. We can't say enough good things about it. The only problem ...... we wish it were ours! Thanks Jeanine for everything! See you again soon! The Hoffman's
