About Steve D
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 D purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Steve D chose Opal
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.

We spent a week at the condo. It was our 2nd time staying at the Wacamaya condos. It is short, but quick and easy drive to the beach and restaurants. This condo was on the 2nd floor. It was clean and had everything we needed. It also had a cooler and beach chairs you could use at the beach. We did get short notice while we were there that the parking lot was closed to repavent of it. So we had to park on the North side which had very limited parking and was inconvenient to move luggage, etc. But hopefully when the work is all done on the South side parking lot, it will be nicer parking there. Would definitely recommend anyone staying here. Steve was very easy to work and contact if there was issues. Can’t wait to come back again. Sandy and Bruce
We have been to Aruba several times but this was the first time we stayed in a condo out of the hotel zone. Would not experience aruba any other way! The complex and unit itself was quiet, peaceful and very clean. Pool and grounds were clean and constantly being attended to. We loved all the birds and iguanas and lizards! Nothing better than having your breakfast and coffee on the balcony overlooking the pool. Everything inside the unit was very clean as well. Loved the location of wacamaya since it was a short drive to our favourite beach, Arashi. Perfect Aruba beach! Easy access to palm beach and shopping. We walked to ting wei supermarket a couple of times but there are better stores just south of the condo by car. Steve was great to deal with and always available by email. A couple of suggestions for the condo would be to have a better wine bottle opener :). And maybe a list of recommendations for restaurants. Otherwise an awesome vacation in Aruba and looking forward to our next one soon! Thank you! John and Christine.
Perfect for First-Timers
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.
Thank you Linda ! It was a pleasure to welcome you in Wacamaya. Have a great summer ! Steve
Best vacation ever!
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.
Thank you for your kind words and feel free to come back anytime ! Steve
Great time at Wacamaya
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!
Hi Tracy ! Thanks again for your stay in Wacamaya ! Hope to have the chance to welcome you back again ! Steve
I love Aruba
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!
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
