We - 2 adults and four kids unter the age of 10 - spent a wonderful week at Rancho Azul. The house is the second last in a street with nice houses, but we hardly noticed the neighbor house as it was so little and hidden.
Clint picked us up from the airport which was very helpful! Thanks again, Clint!
The house is very bright and the furniture is rustic colonial style and very tasteful. It's not brandnew anymore which made us even more comfortable as we didn't have to be too stressed with our little kids.
The house gets very hot during the day but the excellent air condition in the 3 bedrooms made the nights very comfortable.
Highlight is the pool/lounge area with the hammock, deck chairs and beautiful plants and arrangements. The patio is so private and the path behind the house is hardly used. Now end then horseback-riders, bikers and a few tourists with jeeps passed by. It's very quiet.
In the evening when the kids slept we looked at the sky and enjoyed the stars and the moon, the nightlights in the pool were very romantic.
Twice per week someone came to clean the pool.
Clint was very helpful to organize a travel cod for our son and exchanged a few broken bulbs of light fixtures.
Eagle Beach, Palm Beach and Arachi Beach with lighthouse in the background are only a 5 Min. drive away. Arachi Beach was our favorite as there are many locals and not only tourists. The next big supermarket is about 10 min away, however there is another little one 2 minutes away (which wasn't that helpful really).
I didn't give 5 stars because of the kitchen equipment which doesn't meet the standard of the house as we didn't have enough silverware and the pots & pans were really old. We informed Clint about this and he was going to take care of this.
Some of the blinds don't open anymore, so we had to improvise here and there which wasn't really a big issue at all. We told Clint about this issue, too.
We had a wonderful time and we would definately book this rental again the next time on Aruba and recommend it to friends.
