About the property

1 Bedroom / 1 Bathroom / 4 Sleeps (2 adults and 2 children's)

Our dream location condo is located in the town of Noord and is one of a 26 unit condo complex. For beach lovers it is ideally located only 600 meters (a third of a mile) from the shores of beautiful Palm Beach, which borders the western side of the island and is home to some of the most trendy American hotel chains. Luxuriously decorated, it has a private bedroom for two but can accommodate up to 4 people with the Murphy Bed in the living room, a large bathroom, functional kitchen, a plasma HD television with cable and HD Channels, Wi-Fi, air conditioning and all other necessary amenities. Renting a car is recommended as you can be free to go around the island and also bring the Tommy Bahamas beach chairs and cooler provided in the unit. You just have to bring your bathing suite and toothbrush, we provide the rest !

About Steve Derome

We are owners who felt in love with Aruba in 2008. Since then, we go back each year and most of all, we want our friends and guests to feel like home when they go in vacation in our little place of paradise !

Steve Derome purchased this condo in 2012

Why Steve Derome chose Aruba

The condo has a balcony that opens to a courtyard of irresistible charm. The beautiful courtyard is surrounded by palm trees and lush tropical gardens with the central focal point being a restful waterfall flowing into a huge swimming pool. In the courtyard you can enjoy the sunny skies of Aruba in our gazebo and picnic area. A barbecue is also available for our guests. The condo complex is private and very safe. The guests in the complex are comprised mostly of Canadians, Americans or Dutch.

Perfect for First-Timers

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Aruba, so the advice of the owner, Steve, was especially helpful. The unit was clean and comfortable, and the pool was refreshing in the afternoon heat. We had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation.

Best vacation ever!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Wacamaya! It was very clean, comfortable, and close to many places we wanted to see. It was so comfortable, what enjoyed the most, that it felt like we were coming "home" after a full day of activity each day. No hotel crowd noise, it was very peaceful. We would stay at Wacamaya again.

Great time at Wacamaya

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks over the Christmas holidays at Wacamaya and had a great time. We combined this with our five weeks of timeshare for two wonderful months in Aruba. Our room was neat and clean with every amenity. Any questions we had were promptly answered by Steve and we encountered no problems throughout our stay. It was a great location. My husband golfed daily at Tierra Del Sol and I went horseback riding regularly at a local ranch. I also enjoyed walking around the local neighbourhoods.

The pool was large and there was a great BBQ area. Very relaxing place to be!

I highly recommend Wacamaya, especially over New Year's Eve. The local fireworks are amazing!

I love Aruba

  • 4 of 5

Upon pulling up to the condo my draw dropped. It looked like a war zone with a pile of dirt in the front of the building and a tv sitting out on the front stoop. This was my first real vacation with my "new lady" and I bragged about the beauty of Aruba and i certainly wanted a good first impression-unfortunately that didn't occur. Then having to take suitcases to the second floor was the next issue because I recently had spine surgery so my lady had to drag them up. After cursing myself out for booking the condo having a drink and getting settle, I realized it was a comfortable clean place with the amentities that we needed. If only I didn't have to do the steps. We decided to spend the next day relaxing at the pool and I switched to realizing that this was a tropical oasis and if i could minimize going up and down the steps it would be ok. We quickly made friends with two other couples relaxing at the pool with our drinks and proceded to do that every late afternoon. The mornings were spent at the various beaches all relatively close to the condo. Evenings were spent enjoying the food at various restaurants and shopping in the high rise area.

Steve was a very gracious owner and worked with us and tried to fulfill all of our requests. if we return to Aruba I would not hesitate to stay at the condo. The pool is outrageous!

Owner's Response: Hi Lowell! Thank you for your review. You are right, the pile of dirt was not the best way to welcome our guests and fortunately it was temporary due to the construction at the back of the building and in the parking lot. I also understand that having few stairs to use everyday was not the best way to recover from your back surgery. I'm happy that you still have enjoyed our condo and your time in Aruba. Hope to welcome you again ! Steve

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what we were looking for for our stay in Aruba. It had enough room for our family of 4 and was equipped with everything we needed. The condo was very clean, and the complex was well-maintained and also clean. We loved the pool with the waterfall and the nice deck had plenty of lounge chairs and areas to sit in or out of the sun. The king bed and murphy bed were comfortable, although with the murphy bed open the kitchen was a bit crammed. But for dinners there is a nice covered eating area down on the pool deck, with 2 good barbecues for guests to use. There were good quality beach chairs and a clean cooler, and toys for the pool. The shower was good with plenty of pressure and hot water. The air conditioners worked well and were quiet. The facility is locked and secure so safety was never a concern. The only down side is that it's in a residential area without restaurants nearby. We had a car so we were able to drive to beaches and restaurants, but the kids enjoyed staying "home" at the pool so we did lots of that too. There is a small supermarket right across the street which has everything you could need. The owner, Steve, is very friendly and helpful, and was great to deal with during the rental process. We loved this place. And we LOVED Aruba! Thanks Steve!

Our best stay in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Steve`s unit at Wacamaya for 10 days on New Year 2015-2016. It was our 3rd visit to Aruba and let me say, it was the best ever. We felt just like home. The apartment is fully equipped, and the condo itself was really nice and peacefull. Will come back for sure!!
