“Quiet, peaceful and great location. Perfect.”
I went to Aruba in October, by myself. I read the reviews about this place and was instantly conforted by the positive comments. Booking my room was easy, the owner got back to me swiftly and since my trip was booked last minute, he was super helpful. I booked the garden room, and it was perfect for me, since I was travelling alone. I had privacy, my room was spotless, had air conditioning, good amount of storage, a safe, a small tv with cable and there were plenty of towels. It was across the road from the beach, but a bit of a walk from all the resorts. Personally, for me this was a PLUS because of the privacy but some others might find mildly annoying if they prefer to be in an action-packed area. I don't know why---it's only like 10 minutes walking to the centre of the action anyway! The owners helped me organize my activities, suggested places to eat and enjoy the nightlife. I loved it. I booked an ATV tour, a snorkeling cruise, parasailing from the beach. I chose to rent a car on my second day--if you decide to rent a car, don't do what I did- get it from the airport. Aruba is easy to drive in, people are exceptionally helpful and you can't really get lost!! My hosts were there when I needed them, but let me have my privacy and independence. I had no desire to cook my own food, but if you do I suggest a room other than the Garden view, since it doesn't have a bbq or stove- it has a small fridge and I stocked it with snacks and juices that I got from the grocery store. I loved it!!! If you have any doubts, DON'T hesitate. This place is clean, the people are awesome, the price is very afforadable.
