About Julie

We are a canadian family who fall in love with this fabulous island and decide to invest because we would like to be there more often as we can. Our son learned to do kitesurfing in Aruba and that's the place he likes the most for the winds and for the absence of sharks too! Because there is no sharks or jellyfish in Aruba!! The people on the island is really friendly and it's a place where we felt secure, we have a great neighborhood, access to all comfort you can imagine.

Julie purchased this villa in 2009

Stress Free Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great time staying at this beautiful home. The house was very well-equipped with beach and pool toys for the kids, flatware, linens, and other amenities that made moving in for 9 days a breeze for us.

The guest Wi-Fi provided us with an opportunity to get connected in the evenings, but with a pool, beautiful weather, and a 15 minute drive to the best beaches in the world, we rarely took advantage of that!

We enjoyed the privacy offered by the three spaced out bedrooms, as well as the open floorplan in the main living space which provided the perfect setting for family bonding without being cramped.

Finally, the property manager, Laurence, and owner, Julie, were very gracious hosts, accommodating to our needs. Laurence met us at the airport to lead the way to the home when we arrived in Aruba. In the excitement, our son left his phone on the plane and Laurence waited with us, called in some connections, and helped us get his phone back very quickly before ushering us to the property and ensuring we had everything needed to be comfortable. Julie contacted us along the way and provided us with some excellent tips to enjoying the island.

All in all, we were very pleased with our stay at Papaya 11-F and would definitely stay here again when we return to Aruba.

4.5 stars

  • 4 of 5

Property was as represented and everything was functional. Great island to visit with very reasonable prices on food and attractions.

Red sail catamaran dinner cruise was great.

UTV tour was an excellent way to see the island.

Every restaurant seemed to be on island time so be patient with food and drinks.

Wonderful & Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (3 Adults and 3 Kids) had a truly wonderful time at the Villa. Julie was in constant contact with us right from when we showed our interest in the Villa till we arrived. Laurence the property manager met us at the airport, gave us tips on touring Aruba and took us to the Villa.

The Villa is a beautiful home in a quiet residential area. It was always lovely to come back to after leaving the busy touristic areas. We all had so much fun in the swimming pool at the Villa. The Villa has a fully functional kitchen which made it so much better because we could cook meals easily. There are loads of supermarkets nearby and one can walk to the closest one. A car is needed to move around. There is wifi so you can still keep in touch with the outside world if you choose to.

The Villa was as described and more. It was very clean and it felt just like home to us. We definitely recommend staying at this Villa when in Aruba.

We had a wonderful time and want to say a big thank you to Julie and Laurence for making our first trip to Aruba a great one

Thank you and see you next time.

Great private setting

  • 5 of 5

The property looks exactly like the pictures. The place is kept up well, backyard pool area very private and relaxing. The kitchen has everything needed for any meal. Carefull finding side street to villa, the first nite had major problems. The owners were very helpful and talked me to the street. I thank them greatly for providing a great place to base my vacation. I am already looking to book my next stay there. Thanks again Julie you are doing a great job with your villa. Steve J.

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve for your comments, I try to do my best for supporting your vacation and make a great experience that you would like to repeat! It wasn't easy on the phone to explain the right way when you lost your way home the first night...Aruba should have street names it would help people to recognize the place but it's an island and they are thinking that everybodys knows the place...after that, I am sure you could go anywhere and find your way ! Hope to see you back in Aruba for your next vacation :) Julie B
