About Barbara Schiphorst
Living in Amsterdam, I wish I could spend more time in Aruba. It is our family vacation house and it is looked after by Rik Maes from Clearly Realty in our absence. He will be your host when you arrive and is at hand if you have questions.
Barbara Schiphorst purchased this House in 2012
Why Barbara Schiphorst chose Pos Chiquito
We searched for a house right on the ocean and fell in love with the Merry Milestone instantly. Immediate access to the sea is such a luxury!
What makes this House unique
Without a doubt, it has the best snorkeling in Aruba right in front of our house.

We are group of 6 that stayed for a week. The home is spacious and incredibly comfortable with an unbeatable view. Great sleeping with comfy beds and air conditioning units we ran at night in each room. Kitchen well supplied for all our cooking needs and we did make 3 dinners and most breakfasts and lunches. Ate every meal out at the outside table and seating area looking out to the water. Phenomenal snorkeling right down the stairs to and fro Mangel Halto beach. We explored other beaches with our all around favorite being Baby Beach and the best for snorkeling at Boca Catalina. We explored the whole island and felt so fortunate to stay at such a lovely location away from the tourism chaos but easily accessible to all. Rik Maes is a fantastic guest service manager! He met us at the house and helped us get settled by answering all questions and providing a map he marked up with locations of the grocery stores and some sites we requested in the area. Couldnt have been a better trip. Highly recommend the Merry Milestone!
Thank you, Kris, for your nice review! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Quiet house with an unforgettable view
The house location was perfect! I love the spaciousness of the house! The house was not new, but it had everything we needed for living there comfortably for 8 days. We loved going out to do activities and explore Aruba and come home to a quiet sanctuary to relax, chill and take in the beautiful sunset every evening right across the street!!
Many thanks. so glad you enjoyed your Aruban vacation!
Perfect fit for us!
House is older but very clean, well maintained and well equipped. The house has a nice large outdoor living area which is where we spent most of our time. It is only steps to the ocean for awesome snorkeling! This house is a little off the beaten track which suited us well as it was private and quiet with incredible views of the sunset and the ocean. Highly recommend renting a vehicle to get you around the island.
Thank you for your nice review, Donna. Glad you enjoyed your stay in The Merry Milestone!
Wonderful house in a wonderful place!
The Merry Milestone was everything our extended family needed for a memorable getaway. We stayed a month and welcomed many friends and family members to this great home. The location is perfect - in a quiet residential area not too close to the overdeveloped tourist area of the island, yet close enough to great beaches, restaurants and things to do. Having the sea just across the small road was the perfect incentive to swim and snorkel, sometimes twice a day. The house is very large and quite comfortable, outfitted with all the basics needed for a great stay. We spent most of our time in the huge outdoor living area, leaving only to visit the beach and cook meals in the large kitchen. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nicer experience of Aruba; we liked it so much, we're already booked for next year.
I blush! Thank you for your nice review!
Always great to hear that our Guests had a good time!
Very warm regards, also on behalf of Rik Maes, who is such a great support in looking after "The Merry Milestone!"
We could not have asked for better. The home was beautiful and well equipped. Location is waterfront and very peaceful away from all the tourist hub-bub...yet close enough to access all! Our large family had a perfect vacation and have found our new home away from home in Aruba!
Thank You very much for sharing your impressions. Always happy to know our house brought joy !
Beautiful house, beautiful view, beautiful island.
Merry Milestone was everything we imagined. The house is in a great location with an easy swimming/snorkeling spot directly across the street. With the amazing view from the kitchen, even washing dishes was breathtaking. Open all the windows and the trade winds bring the island inside. The beach was just a couple of minutes walk away and well worth it.
The house has several pair of water shoes, which were a blessing. Bring your own beach towels. The grocery stores dont supply shopping bags, but the house has several in the cabinets.
Our week was one of the best we've ever had. Aruba is truly one happy island.
Many thanks for you nice review! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Best regards, also from Rik
Pos Chiquito is in a residential area 10 minutes South from Oranjestad. The Merry Milestone is a house for total relaxation. You can buy your fish straight from the local fishermen or dine out at the Marina Pirata Restaurant, almost next door. There is a grocery store that stocks essentials nearby and for more shopping, the big American supermarkets are a 10 minute drive away
