Lovely house
This was our third time renting this property and as always Maria was a great host. This time we brought our son’s family, the grandkids had a fun time in the pool. Many new updates to the house were very nice.

Absolute Paradise!
This property was absolutely perfect and beautiful! The pictures don’t begin to show how wonderful it truly is. Our family of 5 were greeted by Maria with hugs and kisses when we arrived. She is the sweetest host! We loved having a gated driveway for our rental car and the beds were very comfortable! Having 3 full baths was also a plus with 3 kids! The kitchen was stocked with anything we needed for cooking including lots of skewers for the grill! Our absolute favorite part was the gorgeous back yard and pool area. From the pool to the hammocks to the grill, we used them all every day. The pool lights up at night and is perfect for an evening swim. We couldn’t get our 6 year old out she loved it so much. We would like to thank Maria for lending us her beautiful home and for being the perfect host!! We cannot wait to visit again!

Perfectly wonderful and relaxing stay
We had a wonderful time in Aruba! We rented a car (which I highly recommend) and had an adventurous drive to the condo. First off, as is mentioned in several other reviews, there are really no street signs in Aruba. Maria provided us with directions that we unfortunately couldn't follow because we were informed by the car rental agency that we were required to take Highway 1 out of the airport. This turned out to be OK though - as we learned once we got used to driving around the island. If you have decided to book this condo, here are some better directions: Take Highway 1 North, well past the cruise port and up to Highway 3. There is a light at Highway 3 and you should see a McDonalds on the left and a Dominos and KFC on the right. Turn right on Highway 3 and travel about 3 KM. Just past a large green house on the left side is the street where you need to turn left. Once you turn down the street, almost immediately turn right and you will see the condo on the right side. The parking area is gated and someone was there to open the gate and provide us with the keys. If you refer to Google Maps for help, it will likely take you to what appears to be a school (green building) on the right side of the road. That's what happened to us... If the same thing happens to you, just know that you have gone just a little too far. When we arrived, we were advised to go to the Super Food for groceries. If you follow the directions provided above, you will actually pass the Super Food on your way in... You will see it on the right side of Highway 1 as you are driving North - Maybe 3-4 KM before you reach Highway 3. It is an "American style" grocery store and EXTREMELY busy. We went there a few times during our stay and it was busy every time, so bring your patience. A few grocery shopping tips: 1 - They do not provide bags at Super Food - They have some nice ones for sale that hold a lot of stuff and they cost about $3 American each. 2 - Make a list before you go. There really isn't much at the condo. Maria provided toilet paper, paper towels, soap, shampoo/conditioner, dish soap, dishwashing sponges, salt and pepper, but really nothing else. If you intend to use the grille, be aware that it uses charcoal, so you'll need to buy some. Also, there was no aluminum foil or anything to wrap up leftovers. There was no lighter either (although we left ours behind, in one of the drawers). If you are a coffee drinker, bring/buy coffee and filters. There is no bean grinder at the condo. We were told the water was perfectly safe to drink, but we bought bottled water anyway. 3 - Most items will have two prices. The lower of the prices is in American dollars. Everything is pretty expensive in Aruba, so be prepared. For instance, my box of cereal was about $7. The fresh squeezed orange juice machine (near the meat counter) is really cool, but you'll pay for this too... About $7/liter for the juice. 4 - They offer carry-out service and I believe the charge was $5. We did it every time because the kids who helped us were really nice. They also spoke very good English and provided good information about the island. The condo itself was very clean and nicely furnished. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Two of the rooms have king beds and the other has a queen bed. The pool was wonderful and there are chairs, tables, and lounge chairs. Maria also provided plenty of beach towels. The pool area is actually shared with two single-family apartments (one of which is Maria's home). We only saw other people at the pool once, but otherwise we had it fully to ourselves. There is WIFI at the condo and it worked very well. As others have mentioned, there is no hot water in residential homes in Aruba. If you plan to take a shower, I advise you to turn off the air conditioning in the bedroom first. If you let if warm up in there a bit, the water temperature really isn't an issue. It's a little refreshing at first, but we found that we got used to it quickly. Bring your own hair dryer if needed. There is not one in the condo. Maria is an excellent massage therapist. She has massage tables right on site and I had her "Relaxation Massage"... It was wonderful. We took the 4-hour UTV Tour while we were there and I highly recommend it. Maria made the arrangements for us and they picked us up very close (within walking distance) to the condo and dropped us off at the condo. From pick up to drop off, you'll likely be gone more like 6 hours as the tour actually begins at a facility down by the airport. During the tour, you'll see sites you really can't get to in a normal car (at least I don't advise it, unless you really know your way around and you purchased the extra insurance). We did drive to the California Lighthouse on our own (signage was actually pretty good).... There is a nice Italian restaurant on site. We went there twice during our stay - The first visit was wonderful, but we had some issues with the service on our second visit. This was likely because they were also hosting a wedding that day, so they were a little short staffed. You can get some excellent photos of the sunset if you go at the right time. Reservations are recommended, but we were able to get a table after about a 20 minute wait on our first visit (weekday). The food quality was quite good and prices were moderate ($25-$45 American for entrees). They make really good Pina Coladas too. Maria was a wonderful hostess and very helpful. She speaks some English and we generally had no issues communicating. We would definitely recommend this condo and would stay here again if we return to Aruba!

Wonderful place
First time in Aruba!! This was a GREAT place for our family of 8. Suited our needs perfectly! Maria was very gracious!! The only downside- no hot water... It is a very warm climate so it wasn't too bad.

Awesome Oasis
We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was the best 10 day vacation we ever had. Maria and Maggie were wonderful. We had a little bit of a time finding the place as Aruba doesn't have street signs. That made it challenging at first until we learned the area. The pictures of the pool don't do it justice. We enjoyed the backyard and pool every night. The air conditioners in the bedrooms will freeze you out if you need it. There is no hot water but it wasn't needed. The tap water is like spring water and quite refreshing. There is a clothes washer but no dryer. You don't need one as the weather is bright and sunny and the clothes dry quickly on the laundry line. Everything in Aruba is very expensive so bring extra cash. We would return and we absolutely would stay in this home again. This home is worth every penny spent. Thank you again Maria !!!

Wonderful adopted home for the winter!
My husband and I spent 10 wonderful weeks at this home for the winter. Maria, our great hostess went out of her way to make us comfortable and resolved any issues we had quickly. The house is surrounded by a wall so privacy is great with a nice parking and security gate. The yard is beautiful with the pool and flowering plants. It was great to just spend the day lounging by the pool. You will need a car, beaches not far away. Grocery stores are close by, didn't know there were so many on Aruba. Maria also offers massages, pedicures, nail care, facials at very reasonable prices. Just a couple of FYI's: there is no hot water in private homes on Aruba, the water is lukewarm , but didn't bother us cause it felt good after a hot day at the beach. Maria offers housekeeping services at additional charge but is worth it because she is amazing, she cleans inside and out. Can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was!

Fabulous Family Vacation Home
We stayed here for our family vacation about 5 days. The house is beautifully renovated and was perfect for accommodating our large family, with plenty of rooms, a pool and areas to entertain. It is also 5-10 minutes from some of the main beaches and attractions. Bonus points for the fenced in parking area, which can accomodate various vehicles - very handy if you plan to rent a car. Landlord was also helpful, welcoming and lovely. I'd definitely stay here again!
