About Frank Robbers
I moved to Aruba when I was four years old. After 7 years I went back to the Netherlands and always wanted to come back to Aruba.
Frank Robbers purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Frank Robbers chose Palm Beach
In 2009 my brother and I fell in love with this house and bought it, so we can enjoy Aruba when we stay there with all the family. When we aren't here I offer the house to others, so they can enjoy Aruba for a vacation as well. It is near by all the amenities Aruba has to offer. Beach, Casino, ocean, restaurants, bars etc.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is nicely situated near most amenities Aruba has to offer: Beaches, bars, casino's, restaurants, nightlife etc. The neighborhood is a quiet residential area, with friendly people. A good combination.

Great house and extremely helpful and friendly owner, Frank was amazing!
This was a family vacation for us, 12 altogether ranging in age 12-70. Everyone loved the home, the amenities-especially the hot tub and beautiful pool and outdoor living area, the location to beach, shops, restaurants, and activities! Frank was so helpful to us, answering our emails and providing recommendations. His home made our trip to Aruba (hopefully) the first of many! We recommend this home and definitely Frank!!😊🌴☀️🌴♥️
Hé guys. Thanks so much. It was great having you! It’s a pleasure to have you back next year (hopefully) !!
Amazing villa! Great outdoor space!
We were a family of 10 from across Canada. We enjoyed 2 weeks here at this villa. Plenty of space for all of us. The outdoor space was very relaxing and great for relaxing at night and late night swimming. Frank (our host) dropped by every few days to check on us and if you needed anything was just a phone call away. 10 minute walk to shops and the beach. We did rent a van to explore this amazing island. All in all a great time was had by all at this villa. Thank you Frank!
Thank you Michelle, it was a real pleasure to have you stay at the house! I enjoyed stopping by once in a while and see you really enjoyed yourselves.
Indeed it is recommended to rent a car. Not only for shopping, but also to explore our rugged countryside.
Thank you again for also leaving the house nice and clean at departure.
I hope to be at service to you again next time.
Wonderful Place to Stay in Aruba!
Rented house for six nights with family of 7 adults. Plenty of room for our group. Patio and pool with hot tub area is very nice. We enjoyed dinner and evenings here after days at the beach. We also enjoyed the patio with morning coffee and breakfast. Frank is very helpful. We got lost trying to find house. He met us and we followed him to house. The house is a 10 minute walk to Palm Beach which has restaurants, shopping and bars. We were able to meet right at Palm Beach Holiday Inn for ATV ride around the island. We also enjoyed a 2.5 hour ocean boat ride and snorkel. All within a 10 minute walk from the house.
I would recommend a car for grocery shopping and if you wish to travel to other parts of island.
We had a wonderful time. Thanks
Thank you Betsy for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. I’m there to help you out with anything, just ten minutes away.
The hotels are so close to the house, it’s easy to meet tours there at the Holiday Inn to make your vacation even more adventurous.
Comfortable home in great location
Frank was easy to rent from...answered all questions, and there to assist us to settle in. He even picked up our first groceries for us, which was really helpful given our large group with kids. He was very accommodating!
The pool / thatched roof patio area is amazing...spent lots of time there! Kids loved the pool. We didn't set up the hot tub, but it's there if you wanted to use it. Loved that the rooms had air conditioning if you needed it. We used it at night in the bedrooms and slept really well! Didn't come close to using up our electricity limit. We enjoyed the house very much, and worked very well for our group of 6 adults and 7 kids!
House is about a 6-10 minute walk to Palm Beach, across one busy road. Cars did sometimes stop for us. A pedestrian cross walk would be great, but no such luck! Need to watch carefully, but not a problem for us, even with 7 kids.
I would likely rent a car next time we came. Lots to do on the island! We toured around the island for 2 days with a car rental and also jumped on buses and walked. Taxis are also quite affordable and we had really friendly drivers when we used the taxi service! SuperFoods is close is you have a car, but you can walk to a smaller grocery in about 5 minutes. Also a great pastechi stand that you can take out food from, and lots of places to eat and shop at the mall across the highway.
Only down sides we remarked on were the occasional run in with dogs (some off their leash, and others appeared to be strays) in the neighbourhood. We didn't feel comfortable letting the older kids walk around because of the dogs. There is also 2 cats that are always in the yard, which the kids enjoyed feeding with the supplied cat food. Several adults in our group are allergic to cats and it was annoying that they made their way into the house a few times and we had to chase them out. Thankfully there were no allergic reactions though from the cats, as they don't live inside. Not a big issue, but could be a minor inconvenience if you don't like cats and dogs!
Overall we really enjoyed the house, and Aruba...and I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks Frank!
Thank you Monica, for you objective review.
We do have a problem with stray dogs and even the ones with an owner. There is a law that dogs must be on a leash when outside their terrain, but not many people do that and it doesn’t seem they are enforcing the law too well. The issue is often during the night and pretending to throw a rock helps keeping them away. I think that during the day it’s not a big issue. The house is fully fenced. A couple of times guests thought a dog did come into the yard, because they found poop near the pool. But that were not dogs, that were iguanas. So when mother cat arrived and I saw her chase the iguana up a tree, i though it a good idea to encourage her to stay and feed her. Now she has a 8 month gray kitten, so time to “help” them both. I know that it might now give problems with allergies, so I tell guest to leave them outside.
I always recommend guests to rent cars, not only against the dogs, but, yes, to see the rest of the island with nice beaches, rugged nature and for easy shopping.
We are trying hard to keep Aruba One Happy Island.
did not meet expectations
The villa is in a good location,but the neighbors have very noisy dogs that bark all night long. Also, the furnishings and the house itself need some work, not to mention a good cleaning.We did not receive the twice weekly maid service as the owner states. There was no extra supplies of basic items like toilet paper and garbage bags. Overall a disappointment.
I’m sorry to hear the house didn’t meat your expectations. I can’t do much about the neighbours dogs and unfortunately I was away on my own vacation to help you out immediately for the break down of the jacuzzi. Eventually it was a jumped breaker probably set off due to excessive use of water in the jacuzzi.
I offered cleaning twice a week for two hours, but that cleaning lady left last November. She would only do general cleaning during those two hours anyway and no laundry or changing the sheets. The new lady only does the change overs, because cleaning in between is too short and sometimes disturbing to the guests. Some guests even rejected cleaning due to privacy reasons. Other guests never told me the house wasn’t clean in general. So I decided to cut down cleaning to once a week.
I know toilet paper and garbage bags were brought to you on Thursday.
But again it’s good to know I can’t be missed to help you out in times of trouble.
It’s all about the outdoor space!🌞🌴
The Island Hotspot has a great outdoor space and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for a large group. It’s an easy walk to Palm Beach, having to cross one busy street, depending on time of day. This is a Caribbean property in a residential area, so you are surrounded by permanent residents. The neighborhood upkeep is not as nice as US standards, but the area felt safe for daily walks to Palm beach and the nightlight at Palm Beach. The space and schedule-free benefits of a house was great. We were able to have all-you-can-eat breakfast and grilled foods on our own schedule.
Each bedroom has its own private bathroom and individual A/C unit. Frank and his wife Peggy met us upon arrival and checked back during our stay to make a minor repair and clean the pool. I would recommend the house for several couples or a family wishing to explore Aruba. I recommend a rental car for attractions and grocery store. We saw Baby beach, Natural bridge, Natural pool, California lighthouse, and quite a bit in between. Great for a large group. Frank and Peggy were very good hosts.
Thank you Matt for your review.
Nicely summarized what the house has to offer. That is what the caribbean is all about: living outside, under a shaded thatched roof and enjoying the pool when it gets too hot.
I try to make sure that everything within the property walls is kept well and of course try to fix anything as quick as possible when broken, so you can have a relaxing holiday.
This villa is located only 800 yards from the beach. All tourist amenities like malls, bars, restaurants and shops are in between just an easy 5 minute walk. Palm Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island where all high rise hotels are situated. Also Moomba Beach Club is right on the beach, which is a nice public place to go to if you like to enjoy the beach and rent beach chairs. Here you can swim, have a drink and enjoy the sun set, but of course you can stay at the villa and relax at the pool, heat up the grill and enjoy a good steak under the palapa. All bedrooms have split-unit air-conditioning and all bathrooms and kitchen have hot and cold water with good pressure. The kitchen and living room have a fan. During the day, through the open windows, the nice island breeze and fan help the house to stay cool. Nights are warm in which you can enjoy you meals outside in a romantic setting. Enjoy your stay!
