About Tom or Karen
We are Karen and Tom Szewczyk and we live in East Syracuse, New York. We're both graduates of Syracuse University and have worked at our professions for over 30 years. Tom is a portrait photographer and operated his own successful studio for 35 years in Central New York and also was/is a real estate consultant & investor/developer. Karen is a neo-natal nurse practitioner and loves taking care of little babies. We set a goal just a few years ago to own and manage a condo or townhouse in Aruba that we can enjoy ourselves but also make available for guests to enjoy as rental. We found this beautiful townhouse, went to Aruba to see it and just fell in love with the community and the area in general. We really hit a home run here. We also met and established a friendship with the couple who sold the townhouse to us. They owned the home for more than a dozen years. As they're growing older they wish to spend more time in the states closer to family. They pointed out a lot of upgrades they've done to the property and they have taken incredibly good care of this home. We're determined to do as good a job caring for this home as they have.
Tom or Karen purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Tom or Karen chose Noord
Our townhouse is located in a quiet gated community that is very close to the beaches and also the nightlife of restaurants and various casinos. When you're ready to 'go home' you have a nice quiet neighborhood to live in but you're always very close to the most active areas of Aruba for daytime fun or nightlife. We have friends who also have a rental property here and we noticed once while visiting that they had a completely 2nd set of everything; linens, dishes, silverware, beach towels, etc. We asked them why and they said that they don't like to use the same things that guests use. We feel that if it's not good enough for us then it's not good enough for our guests either; we DO use the same linens, dishes, silverware, beach towels, etc. that our guests use. When we notice something becoming a bit frayed or worn then we replace it, period.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our guests have the free use of 4 bikes (with helmets) that we keep at the townhouse. With the bikes and because everything is so close by, you just don't need a rental car here. You can save the rental car money for other fun on the island. We're so close to everything you can walk or just take a bike a get there faster. The townhouse has 2 master bedrooms upstairs, both with en suite baths. 1 bedroom downstairs with it's own full bath also. Virtually all of the comforts found in your own home can be found in this townhouse. We have a 1 week minimum stay at our townhouse. If you were interested in booking a few days more than a week, we can quote you on that stay as well. As an added bonus, we keep a telephone in the living room with an extension in the master bedroom. Using this phone you can make and receive FREE phone calls to the USA and Canada. We also make an Aruba Cell phone available for our guests if you feel you'd like a cell phone. All you have to do is go to any supermarket or convenience store and buy some minutes for the phone. $10 or so is probably all you'll need. If you're interested in getting a rate for a stay, it is a good idea to contact us after you get a rate from HomeAway or VRBO. Sometimes the rates they give you are not completely accurate (the software is figuring your dates and costs) and we also can often show you payments methods that will save you money.
