Our first trip to Aruba and we had an amazing time staying at Casa Galpy. The Villa has very nice decor and all the amenities we needed. A beautiful pool and relaxing backyard, gym, nice size kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a laundry area, great dining and lounging area inside. This home fit an extended family of 7 very comfortably. The Villa has hot water and air conditioning not always found in some of the other homes being rented on the island. It's located 5 minutes from the beach, and 9 minutes from the airport. We were in a nice safe area that was central to everything. Pat, owner of Casa Galpy, is simply outstanding with the communication and information she provides prior to arrival to enhance your trip to the beautiful island of Aruba. Great communication with the property management company while staying in Aruba. There's a store similar to Walmart/Costco around the corner called Do IT to stock up on essentials for the duration. We rented a car and ventured out on our own and set up all of our activities but there is a Concierge you can contact through the property management company to set things up for you should you need it. We definitely would stay here at Casa Galpy should we come again to the island.
For our 10th consecutive year vacationing in Aruba, we thoroughly enjoyed our 12-day stay in this more than spacious and beautiful Opal 57 vacation home. The Noord area of Aruba has fabulous homes, and the Mariposa is definitely gorgeous!
The villa is in a terrific location and was also easy to find. We were welcomed upon arrival, and were introduced to all areas of the house and property so that we could get situated with ease. The villa Is very close to the beach, close to local grocery stores, and other shopping outlets. The accommodations were just perfect for our family, and we had no complaints about anything during our stay. We had plenty of privacy! With the hot Aruba weather, the large villa has ceiling fans throughout as well as air conditioning; and there was always a nice breeze from the trade winds throughout the day!
The furnishings are modern and well maintained. Mattresses on the beds are also very comfortable! There are 2 Patios (rooftop terrace and main level) which offered enjoyable views and plenty of sunshine and ample comfortable seating. The villa has Internet/Wifi and two flat-screen TV’s with a wide range of channels. The main floor contains a large and spacious open floor plan — living area with kitchen and dining, leading out to an even larger backyard patio and space with a large In ground pool, beautiful landscaping with palm trees, volleyball net, Tiki hut, BBQ grill.
We look forward to planning our 2020 Aruba vacation as we absolutely loved our stay at this vacation property; and we most definitely recommend Villa Mariposa - Opal 57! Thank you to the Marin family!
