It was our first time on the Island of Aruba and Samuel with his wife Laura made it very special. They took us to a restaurant that the locals frequent and it was delicious and reasonable. Stanley and Ingrid (his parents) are on site. They made sure we had everything we needed. This was also our first out of the US since the Covid issues. We felt safe and everyone we ran into were so friendly. Their place is so convenient to restaurants,grocery stores and gift shops. We definitely will return and stay here.

Perfect hosts. Comfortable mattress. Great wifi. Very suitable for long term stay. 10 minute walk to town centre. 4 minute walk to large supermarket. Air conditioning worked well. Power point near bed. Outdoor seating area. Pool. Fridge. Microwave. Hot plate. Great budget option but hire a car to give you freedom to visit beaches and rest of the island. Booked one of the smaller studios but they have larger options as well.

Fantastic combination of location and value. Stanley goes out of his way to help, and his dogs are friendly! The terrace is perfect for sitting at sunset and relaxing to the sounds of the residential neighborhood. My room had air conditioning and a ceiling fan; it was good to have both options. The wi-fi is fast and reliable. I do wish the shower were hotter, but it was refreshing and warm enough. The apartments are at the far west end of Pagaistraat (Google Maps has them at the intersection of Dreimasterstraat). It's less than a 10-minute walk to the heart of Oranjestad, and along the way is a row of food stalls on Dreimasterstraat with fruit shakes and snacks. There are also supermarkets close by. Would stay again, for sure.

Ingrid and Stanley were both SO generous and wonderful to be around. This location is right in the city, making it very convenient to get to anything in Oranjestad. They are located in a quaint little neighborhood with locals all around, giving it a very authentic experience. The room has AC, a small bathroom, full kitchen, bed, and daily cleaning service. This place has everything you would need for a convenient and cost-effective place to stay. If I return to Aruba, I will definitely be staying here again.

Stanley and his family were SO KIND to us during our stay. They were overly accommodating with daily cleaning and even gave us directions and a ride to our first destination to learn the area. Don't be fooled by the location, we arrived and were wondering if maybe we had made a wrong decision, but in fact couldn't have chosen a better place. Please note that this is where the locals live, so there isn't luxury as reflected in the pricing. This includes lack of hot water- but due to it being so hot outside we didn't mind. I cannot recommend this location enough. 5 stars.
