About Bill Lochridge
Aruba is known as 'One Happy Island'. In keeping with that theme, when we are not vacationing in Aruba and are back in Georgia, we invite others to stay in our villa at very attractive rates. This is our home and we expect our guests to treat it as they would their own. Since Aruba is beautiful all year round, our rates stay the same all year. We normally do not rent to singles under 25. No smoking and no pets, but children are welcome! - Billy Lochridge, Alpharetta, GA, Owner
Bill Lochridge purchased this Villa in 2006

Nice place to stay.
Stayed a week here 8 years ago. Two weeks this time. Easy access to Eagle & Palm Beaches. Many resturants are also close by. Nice open air area downstairs. A/C in all bedrooms make for comfortable sleeping. Kitchen has just about everything needed for meals. No hot water for showers but after a hot day at the beach, the shower was refreshing. Having beach chairs that we could take to the beach would have been a real plus. The on sight property manager was around frequently and was always helpful. Not only if we needed anything for the house but also good info about living on the island itself. Always felt safe living in a "normal" neighborhood.
We enjoyed our vacation and stay here. All rooms were a/c and the entire house was clean. Great location to everything. We will be coming bac
We recently stayed at Arubaridge for seven days and it was perfect for our group! Each couple had their own private air conditioned bedroom and en suite bathroom. The beds were super comfortable; we all slept great every night! We had been told that the water in the showers does not get “hot” like we might be used to. Most of our group was fine with the warm water, as it turned out to be quite refreshing after a hot day out and about, but one in our group missed a truly hot shower. Just something to know ahead of time.
The common kitchen/living room area on the main floor was a great gathering place as every morning we figured out where to go and what to do, and every night we got together and played cards. The kitchen had all the appliances/utensils/dishes we needed (no dishwasher, but we didn’t really need one). With large doors on both sides, we had breezes through the house all the time. We enjoyed coffee in the mornings, and even had a barbecue dinner one night with the grill on the back patio!
There’s a nice little yard with pretty landscaping: bougainvilleas, aloe plants, yuccas and more. There are lots of patios: each bedroom opens to one, there’s a front patio, back patio and a side patio (with tiki umbrella). We saw chickens most of the days we were there; charming at first, but by the end, their early morning wake up calls were not as charming!
This house is in a convenient location, in a nice neighborhood. We always felt safe. It is about a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Palm Beach (we got lost the first day we walked back, but then couldn’t figure out how that happened!). There is so much to see and do at Palm Beach that you don’t need to go anywhere else for the whole week, except that you would miss out on all of the rest that Aruba has to offer.
There are TV's in all the rooms and all worked fine. There are even safes in the rooms for your valuables. The wi fi worked great as well. We also liked that there was a landline that we could make free calls to the U.S. if we needed to, and receive them as well.
When we go back to Aruba, we will be staying at Arubaridge again!
Comfortable and Convenient
My husband, two teenage kids and i spent two weeks at this villa this past March. We have been to Aruba before and were specifically looking for a place in this location. It was ideal in that it was only 10 min. walking distance to my family who come every year, 15 min. walk to the beach and shops/ restaurants of Palm Beach. The kids loved having their own room and bathrooms. I would not recommend this villa however, for a family with young kids unless the parents are going to share the kids' bedroom, as you cannot hear anything that is happening outside your room, except maybe the roosters in the morning.
The photos of the villa are exactly how you will find it. Clean, open and airy and large enough to have guests join you for happy hour or supper.
I would recommend doing groceries at Super Foods or Ling and Sons if you prefer a "North American" style supermarket although there are several small scale supermarkets in the neighborhood.
The only issues we experienced which are minor, is 1. my husband was frustrated by the lack of sharp knives for chopping and food prep. 2. The caretaker is difficult to reach if you do not have a cell phone and that is something we do not have. I would like to suggest to the owner to consider purchasing some beach chairs to leave at the villa for guests.
We met some wonderful Arubans who really made our vacation special as well.
I would recommend this villa to friends and family and i would consider coming back here again.
Thank you very much for sharing your Aruba home with us.
The villa has WIFI and a phone for guest use at no charge. The phone provides toll free calling to the US and Canada, so any guest can reach the owner simply by dialing the phone number provided. This particular guest must have failed to notice the phone details that were explained in the welcome packet, which also includes WIFI passwords and other important information.
I agree with the guest that the property is designed for adults. There is one queen or king bed in each bedroom/bath unit with a locked door facing the hallway and patio. Guests with small children typically have the children stay in the largest suite on a queen blow up mattress that we provide at no charge upon request.
We had not been providing beach chairs since the resorts on the beach rent them, but thanks to your suggestion, we are buying a couple for guests. We do provide free beach towels.
Thanks for the input and we look forward to your next visit.
Great place, great location!
This house is great for more than one couple. We had three couples and each had their own air conditioned bedroom with its own bathroom. All three BR's are very similar so no fuss over who gets a better room. Common areas are well removed from bedrooms so you can rest while others gather. Close to everything you want to do on Aruba. Very nice house furnished just right. Not so nice that you are afraid to touch anything but very comfortable and enjoyable. Everything you need is there including an onsite caretaker that is very helpful without being intrusive. Will definitely call Billy the owner the next time we visit Aruba!! (Note, these comments are based on enjoying living like a local in Aruba. If you need hot water showers, AC in every room and don't want to see the ocasional chicken or goat in the front, then pay the big money and stay at a hotel or resort)
Place worked quite well and was clean. Plenty of room for the group, was nice having a private bathroom for each room. Porch area for sitting was quite relaxing for conversation and a few evening/midday cocktails. Grocery store down the road within walking distance. Beach ~5 minute walk from the villa, we used backpacks for the day trips. All the kitchen essentials were available. Typically made breakfast at the property and then went out for lunch/dinner. Hotel pick up worked quite well. Water temps were fine for us, found shower temps to be better if they had a chance to warm under the sun.
I would recommend and stay at this property again.
On the beautiful leeward side of Aruba is Aruba Ridge, a villa within walking distance to Palm Beach and only minutes from Arashi and Eagle Beaches. The villa is located adjacent to Palm Beach, the most desirable area of Aruba, within view of the casinos and resorts, making it convenient to shopping, dining, movie theaters, golf, and waters sports.
