One of our best rental experiences ever!

  • 5 of 5

Jose and Rixt Marin are consummate professionals, and a real pleasure to rent from. From the initial reservation, to follow-up the weeks prior, to check-in, during the stay and check-out, they managed everything seamlessly, promptly and pleasantly. The property was spotlessly clean, and had everything one needs while on vacation. They also provided detailed information on local activities, restaurants, shopping etc., plus clear and easy to follow directions for virtually everything we required during our week there. If we had to make any recommendations (which is difficult when the rental was pretty much perfect!), we would suggest that a few small tables for the lounge chairs would be nice so that there was a place to put drinks, books etc. while relaxing by the pool. Also a few more pool toys (we are pool owners so are used to having lots of toys) would be great, although there were a few inner tubes which were fun. Overall, we have nothing but highly positive praise for this beautiful property and lovely couple, you won't find better in Aruba!

Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

Great property with super responsive property owner! There is a $200 additional non refundable cleaning fee on top of rental to be paid in cash on arrival to be aware of. If you want to have the AC run the whole time in the whole house this probably isn’t the property for you, but who goes to Aruba to be cold? Highly recommend.

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house. It had everything we needed for our 9 night stay over New Years. We’ve been to Aruba multiple times, staying at resorts and other rentals. This was the best we’ve found so far. Jose met us promptly for check in and showed us around. There were plenty of dishes, glassware, towels, etc. Proximity to our favourite beach and snorkelling spot (Arashi and Boca Catalina) was about 5 minutes. Also very close to the high rise hotels and all the restaurants etc of that area. The pool and lounge chairs were perfect for relaxing in the afternoon and evening. We would definitely rent this property again, and would recommend Jose & Rixt as hosts for any property.

Best vacation in Aruba ever

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing 2 week stay at Topaz 8 in Aruba, a gorgeous home managed by Casa Mia Aruba.

Aruba is our favourite island and Topaz 8 is our new favourite place to stay. We have been staying at a time share hotel for years and we loved it but i can't see us ever going back to a hotel after this experience.

The home is unbelievably well appointed and comfortably sleeps 8. The kitchen is beautiful, as are the bathrooms. All very modern, clean and with everything you would want from a luxury hotel.

The "piece de resistance" is the backyard oasis, featuring a beautiful pool, a covered porch where we enjoyed many dinners, a partially shaded pergola with lounge chairs and it even has a a restroom located near the pool deck (so you don't have soaking wet kids walking through the house to use the bathroom). The pool area became our favorite place to hang out, day and night. The privacy, and peace and quiet (interrupted only by the sound of birds chirping) was just what the doctor ordered.

The home is located a few km away from the palm beach section of Aruba, with its great restaurants, cafés and shops....we would meet up with friends and family at the beach once in a while but we really loved just hanging out at the house. I recommend renting a car rather than relying on taxis.

If you have a family of 5 or more and want to try something other than a typical hotel experience, contact Casa Mia Aruba and inquire about Topaz 8 or one of the many other vacation homes that they manage. Jose and his wife Rixt are wonderful and very responsive if something requires their attention.

Topaz Pearl Villa in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Great place to unwind! Close to beaches on the north/east end. Not far to any beach, really. Good, clean, spacious with security alarms for protection. The patio was really nice for enjoying food cooked at the villa. There were all sorts of cooking utensils and necessities. Way more than enough drinking glasses and such. The 3 bedrooms had nice bathrooms, altho' 1 was not directly connected. There was also a loft bed that had a shade which could be pulled down for privacy. Washing machine available. No dryer -- just a clothesline, but things dried pretty quickly there.

About the beaches, just a note on the Baby Beach at the southern end of the island. It was nice and serene, but there were a lot of bees hanging around. The Big Mama's burger restaurant right on that beach was a little overpriced, but basically the only thing available.

The northern beaches were a little more energetic. But snorkeling was found possible at all the beaches.

Overall, the island was pretty awesome. The stay was great. Would definitely recommend Topaz Pearl Villa.

Car: recommended

The Topaz neighborhood is close to all you need: restaurants, beaches, casinos, shopping malls and much more fun! There is a Chinese supermarket around the corner and a bicycle shop as well.

There is public transportation on the main road. There is a bus stop every hour during the week. We have the bus schedule for your convenience in the villa. We do recommend you to rent a car on Aruba. Most of the times it is too hot to walk. Best way also to see and explore the island!
