About the property

'Bahada di Solo' means descent of the Sun or 'SUNSET' in Papiamento, the native tongue of Aruba. The house name reflects our love of this island, it's friendly people and the fantastic sunsets that await you at the end of each day. The Bahada Di Solo Villa is located in an area of Malmok on a quiet street just steps away from one of the nicest beaches in Aruba. Take a morning walk along the beach. Enjoy a quiet lunch by the private pool, surrounded by palm trees, while enjoying the large cabana, grill area and wet bar. Go for an afternoon dip and snorkel at Malmok beach then enjoy an evening cocktail as you take in another spectacular sunset.

This Villa provides the perfect location to enjoy all Aruba has to offer. Only a few minutes drive to the great shopping and restaurants of Palm Beach or from the best golf in Aruba. Nestled in a small neighborhood adjacent to multi-million dollar Villas and with privacy of Tierra Del Sol to the rear, this property is a cozy getaway for your family that also has plenty of space to bring the whole party along to Aruba.

The Bahada Di Solo Villa boasts 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with space to sleep up to 8 guests. There are 2 attached units available to 'add-on' to provide accommodations for up to 12, including children. The Main Villa has a large, fully equipped kitchen and living area with new furnishings in the living and dining areas. A huge 50' flat screen and Blue-ray/DVD player in the living area with attached Bluetooth sound bar. You can bring your own movies, use your Netflix account or link your own music from any Bluetooth device. We also offer Apple TV in the living room. The huge Master Bedroom is equipped with a King Bed and 47' flat screen with a huge shower area. The house is also secure with a full monitoring alarm system and gates on all sides.

Our Property Management team will greet you as you arrive and show you all the Villa has to offer. They are available for you in case any questions arise during your stay. They are also an excellent source for any special arrangements, requests, or services you might require during your stay in Aruba.

We want you to enjoy your stay at our home and are consistently working to make a great Villa even better. We look forward to answering all of your questions and guiding you through a wonderful visit to Aruba.

About Maria Douglas

12 years ago our great friends introduced us to this beautiful island. Ever since we have been coming down with our children, friends and family. We have lived in Maryland for 18 years and decided we needed a year-round warm-weather get away. We love to share our love of Aruba with others.

Maria Douglas purchased this villa in 2014

Why Maria Douglas chose Aruba

When we first came to Aruba we fell in love with the Malmok area. We love the proximity to the beach, restaurants, and shops. The snorkeling and blue waters were some of the best on the island. We loved this house because of the pool and the size. We knew we could bring our whole family and have plenty of room. The attached units provide a unique opportunity for extra guests to come along while providing enough privacy for each guest to have their own space to unwind.

What makes this villa unique

Perfectly situated in a quiet, prestigious neighborhood but centrally located to the best of Aruba. Our home backs up to an undeveloped section of the Tierra Del Sol community. The Bahada Di Solo Villa has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in the main house and 2 attached bedroom suites available if you need more space. The large pool has an attached jacuzzi and plenty of pool deck and cabana space to enjoy the sun or shade.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved Bahada Di Solo. It was great for my family. We walked to the beach everyday ( only 2 minutes). In the afternoons we enjoyed playing shuffle board, ping pong, corn hole and swimming in the pool. The house is located in the quiet area of Malmok. The house has no other homes next to or behind so it was very private. We had plenty of space to enjoy each others company but if you needed away time there was plenty of beautiful gardens to enjoy. The beds were very comfortable with quality sheets and duvet covers. The property manager was so helpful with directions, restaurants and any questions about the home. Can not wait to come back next year. Thank you Maria for a great vacation.

Location, location, location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome house for my family of 10 to spend together on such a gorgeous island. We absolutely loved all of the outdoor space. The pool area, cooking area, bar and the wonderful eating space always had that soothing breeze!! The location was the BEST!! Close enough to walk to 3 beaches and just a short drive to the magnificent Eagle Beach. It was also very close to Super Foods which was handy for us. We loved the secluded area of Malmok much better than the very busy Hi-Rise and low rise areas. The indoor was spotless and while we didn't spend much time inside, the kitchen was great to prepare food in. Lots of space for all of us, also! If I ever return to Aruba I would definitely stay at Bahada di Solo again, I would recommend this great home to any family!!

Awesome Aruba Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a magnificent week at Bahada di Solo. The house is a short walk away from stunning beaches and snorkeling. The location is both private and convenient. The large pool cabana area quickly became the hub of the daily activities. Maria provides a beautiful, well furnished home that was comfortable for our group of 10 adults. Her contacts on the island, Yolanda and Derrel were super helpful with advice and service. We especially enjoyed dinner out at "Fred" on Maria's recommendation. It was an amazing and relaxing week away from Winter. We cannot wait to return. Thanks to Maria and Bahada di Solo for your hospitality. See you next year!

Great time in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Was our first time to Aruba and could not of had a better time. The house was great. It is set up well for large families or multiple couples. Rooms are nice size, with very comfortable beds. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook meals at home along with outdoor grill but would recommend exploring the island as there are many wonderful restaurants. The pool and pavilion/bar area are a nice place to hang out after the beach. There is ping pong and a shuffle board court to entertain you, although I found I am not very good at the latter and will have to improve my game before hopefully returning to Bahada di Solo next year! The owners are wonderful to work with a great resource as they know the island well.

Perfect Location, Perfect House, Perfect Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

First time in Aruba with friends and certainly enjoyed our stay at Bahada di Solo. This house is setup for families of all ages and the children (especially older ones) will enjoy the pool, outside pavilion and shuffle board. You can easily walk to the beach and grab a cabana (go early to reserve) and snorkel the best spots in Aruba. This end of Aruba is less crowded as well, so you enjoy the empty spots on the beach.

The house is laid out perfectly with plenty of bedrooms, family TV room and well equipped kitchen. I've stayed at quite a few houses on vacation and booked through this website, but this house beats them all.

Make sure you book dinner in advance at Fred's - best food experience on the island.

The owners (Maria/Dave) were great to work with and will offer suggestions on what adventures to do while on vacation.

Best location on Aruba

  • 5 of 5

We visit Aruba each year with friends and family. This is the best home we have ever rented for our group. There is plenty of space for a large family or 5 or 6 couples. The large pool cabana with 12 bar stools makes a terrific gathering place. We were able to walk to 3 or 4 different beaches in minutes. The snorkeling was fantastic right across the street. All of the best shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores are minutes away. We enjoyed morning walks to the lighthouse for sunrise. Our kids kite surfed and windsurfed just down the road. The villa is surrounded by reserve on 2 sides. Very private and quiet in the evening to enjoy our time together. We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return. So thrilled that we found this diamond on Aruba.
