Jim, Shawna, the house, the dogs, the rooms, the neighborhood, the price, the breakfasts, the warm 81 degree water, the information, the close bus stop, the snorkeling being so close, were all perfect. I liked being picked up at the airport by a smiling face and taken to the airport with a smiling face. Any question was answered with a smile and information was always helpful. The island is small so getting around is not a problem. Paradise Found is definitely a paradise for us. We ventured all over the island, part by bus and part by rental car, but being located in the middle of coast we could go anywhere in a short time. The coffee and breakfasts were accompanied with great conversation and information about the history and the people of Aruba. Much more history than I would have received at a hotel. Even on the rainy day we had a beautiful open air room to read and relax. Other visitors came and went. We met a couple from Miami and a lady from Finland. More smiling faces. Our favorite was the scuba dives (we did 3) . Red Sail was the company we used and this too was a great experience--clear warm water. There are other companies also. We took the bus to the "big beaches" and walked and walked and saw lots of people in front of the hotels--then we were able to return to the quiet neighborhood of Paradise Found. It was perfect for us.
