Nice place on the non-touristy side of island. We went with our 1 year old and it was really great for us, mainly because Arnold was very informative, considerate, and acomidating to us being new parents. Located close to beautiful baby beach which we went to everyday. Our child also loved seeing the wild goats and bright colored lizards that... More

I took the kids to Aruba for some much-needed R&R. After a few days on the touristy side which gave me the luxury half of me wanted, we spent the rest of our holiday at Kite Inn which filled the nature the other half of me wanted. Arnold gave us some reasonably priced kite lessons, and was very cordial. We... More

This place is run by Arnold, a remarkably cordial and hospitable kitesurfer. It was our first time on the island. My sister and I arrived with my 5-year-old daughter on Sunday afternoon and departed on Friday afternoon. Arnold waited for us at the airport, and gave me the keys to his Corolla which he rented out to us for $40... More

This was my 1st visit to Aruba. I chose Kite-Inn because this was a kiteboarding trip and I liked its proximity to Boca Grandi Beach. I thought the reviews here appeared a little lofty but I must agree, Kite-Inn is a great place to stay. Super clean, cold A/C, hot water, comfortable bed, and quiet neighborhood. I actually felt sorry... More

This is the perfect place for kiters who want to kite as much as possible. So close to Boca Grandi, you can practically see the kites. Arnold and Hugo are incredible hosts and helped us to find our way around San Nicholas, even taking us to the local eateries. The town is great and the people are very friendly. It... More

Ok, I'm not a kite-surfer, but I was immediately welcomed in to this cool sub-culture. There is a great little spot on Boca Grandi beach where the surfers do their thing and it is amazing to watch. I went to the non-tourist side of Aruba for a very short trip around Christmas to escape the holiday insanity, and this was... More

This is absolutely the best place I have stayed in the Caribbean. Clean, staff is very courteous, Arnold will do anything to help your stay here. Beds are very comfortable king or queen. A/C great and HOT water with pressure. Three minutes to Boca driving. If you are kiting Aruba this is a must. If you are just visiting this... More

It is the antithesis of the tourism hell that Aruba is so well known for. If you hate package holidays, all-inclusive generic resorts and all the chain stores and restaurants that come with them, this is the place for you. It is laid back, unpretentious, and close to all the truly awesome natural areas that Aruba has to offer. There... More

When I learned my daughter had been accepted into the two-week Art Rules Aruba summer program, I began seeking lodging for our family (2 adults and 2 children). We really wanted to stay away from the touristy hotel and resort areas and started looking for options near the Skol di Arte, where the summer program previously had been held. We... More
