Very clean large property in nice location within walking distance of nice small beach area for snorkeling! Pool area is awesome and great for spending time outside. You can spend all day there. Basically all you need is provided and available and Maria is very responsive to any questions or concerns. We would definitely book again if we travel back to Aruba

Communication with the owner and property manager was excellent. Everything you need to know in advance and all questions were answered quickly. The house is well appointed, and has nice cookware and dishes. I can't say enough good things about the outdoor space, it is simply perfect and plenty of places to sit and chill alone or with others. A/C in the bedrooms kept us nice and cool during the night. No A/C in the kitchen or living room was not a big deal, the ceiling fans with the windows open and a nice breeze was just fine for the limited time spent in doors. There are many different levels (step up/step down) inside and outside to be continuously mindful of. I fell twice but I was not injured, it is super important to just pay attention to the different levels as you move throughout the property. More bathroom towels would have been good, but we washed the ones we had which worked out equally well. NOTE: The 1st floor apartment bedding has been updated since the pictures and that was a really pleasant surprise :-)

First and foremost, Maria was so extremely accommodating, and finally, after two years our family was able to rebook our trip. The property was excellent, perfect for families with kids of all ages. Close to all the greak snorkeling spots, it was a quick walk across the street, or a short 2 minute ride to Arashi, with ample parking. My daighter even found her own seaglass! Thank you Maria and family, for making it easy. We will be back for sure. The Zappala Family

The house and grounds are beautiful and Maria was so helpful and easy to work with. We celebrated 4 “big birthdays” and could not have been happier with our experience. Highly recommend this property for groups and would be great with kids, too! Comfy beds, well-appointed kitchen, close to high rises, Arachi beach, lighthouse. Don’t hesitate! Rent this property!

We started with 10 family members but 3 dropped out due to Covid fears and Covid issues certainly made the trip a little extra frustrating. But we were glad we stuck it out and made it to Aruba. So even though there were only 7 of us, we rented the two apartments so that we had lots of room to spread out. However, the house would still have been perfect if all 10 members had gone. We loved the many outdoor spaces and the bar and BBQ areas were great. This house is in a quiet neighborhood but yet very close to beautiful beaches and close to shopping and grocery stores as well. Maria (owner) and Yolanda (property manager) were the best I have ever worked with (and I have been renting vacation homes since 1985). We had a chef come in one night to prepare a meal. He was awesome and left the kitchen spotless! If we come back to Aruba, we will most certainly stay here again. The villa is well stocked with dishes and glasses etc. Really can't say enough about this wonderful house. I would give it and the owner and property manager and the cleaning staff 10 stars!!!

We were looking for a house to comfortably hold 3 families and found it. Plenty of space for 11 people, great outdoor space as that as were we spent a good amount of our time. The outdoor dining table was big enough for everyone, the lounging areas around the pool was perfect. The house had plenty of plates, cups, bowls, etc. and all the necessary cooking utensils needed. The house is located in a nice quiet neighborhood only a 2 min walk to the beach, a rocky beach, but carved out access to the water for easy access to swimming and snorkeling. Overall, it was a great stay, great house. Two things to be aware of and by no means should be a deterrent, there is no AC in the main portion of the house. This is no issue during the day as with all the doors and Windows open the house stays comfortable, however we have several guests that are mosquito magnets which leads me to the 2nd item to be aware of. It’s an island and mosquitoes are expected. We did need to close all the doors and windows at dusk to keep the little buggers out, this made cooking inside hot and uncomfortable We used plenty of repellent and the box fans at the house to keep the mosquitoes off while we sat out at night. We worked through both issues and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Our family of 11 (ages 4 - 68) had a wonderful time staying at Maria's home. It had everything we needed and more. Having an indoor and outdoor cooking/kitchen area was perfect. Plus a beach within a 5 minute walk was a plus. We loved being in a quiet neighborhood, away from all the craziness down by the high-rises. Yet it was close enough to get to the various activities we had scheduled as well as restaurants and the grocery store. Maria was great to work with and extremely helpful, especially when we had to postpone this trip originally scheduled for 2020. She answered all our questions prior to our trip, smoothing out the process of entry to Aruba which was very helpful. For a group our size, this house was perfect!

Great home with six bedrooms to accommodate family and friends while vacation. Location was great as well, only being 1.5 miles from all the action of the hotels and restaurants.
