Absolutely loved our stay at Golden Villas. We had a 1 bedroom fully equipped unit. Immaculately clean and well appointed. Loved the boutique small feel. The owner was extremely accommodating which added to the warm comfortable feel. The pool area was wonderful and inviting. The property was only a short 5min ride to the beach/hotel area. Great location! We can’t wait to return!

We were welcomed warmly and with the best customer service! The owners were friendly and went above and beyond helping to make our arrival to this "one happy island" the BEST! Immaculate suites and out door pool area. Private and quiet, off the beach mid island but a very short ride to it. Highly recommend this quant cozy Villa for your stay.

OMG, where do I begin!!! The Villas are awesome, well-kept, and the perfect size and in the perfect location. We LOVED staying there and will definitely make this our go-to destination in Aruba. We are the type to be out and about, so with a rental car, we were able to explore everywhere we wanted to go without being restricted to any resort. One of the best vacation decisions I've ever made lol!!!!

These apartments are a perfect place to relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts, and make your own meals. Pool and outdoor lounge area are lovely spaces. Owners and cleaning lady are beyond friendly and helpful. Palm and Eagle beach each about a 20 minute walk away. Recommend renting a car if you’re wanting to see anything on the island. These apartments are very good value for money.

This was a one week stay and a really good experience overall. The unit was very clean and kept that way by the caretaker and cleaning person. The units are private stand alone cottages with a central courtyard and pool. It was a quiet area in a convenient location and we slept very well. They provided beach chairs and towels plus a small cooler which was very nice and we used them everyday. Our one complaint is that we received no advance information from the rental company. I rented through VRBO and the property (they said) was handled by a property management group. I called just 24 hours before our arrival and could not get through to anyone. So, we traveled with only basic directions and proof that VRBO had charged our credit card. I have rented many times with VRBO and have always received door codes and specifics before our arrival. Not this time. We were able to get through a gate by calling out to people in the pool area and after a while the manager came around. He was very nice and it worked out in the end...however nerve wracking it was then. I am not sure what would happen if our arrival had been very late because we really had not much more than an address. Anyway, I would recommend these units because of the convenience and care that is given to them.

In researching where to stay in Aruba I found myself overwhelmed with the options and areas to stay. We wanted a place with a kitchen, pool and grill. Golden Villas was the BEST choice we could have made. These apartments are spotlessly clean, fully equipped and extremely comfortable. Thanks to all the help from the owners we felt like we were able to live as locals for our vacation exploring all the beaches the island has to offer. Golden Villas is convenient to all of them. A quick 5-10 minute drive had you at some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The cooler and beach chairs/beach towels enabled us to be mobile and to fully enjoy each beach day. The housekeeping every other day was a huge plus with replacement bath and beach towels left for us. We never want to stay in Aruba at another place. We now see why people return to not only the gorgeous Aruba for vacations, but also why they return to Golden Villas!!

First, we were well received by the host, Ricard. He was super nice and very thoughtful of our stay, for the first time in Aruba. The villa was beauty at first sight. Everything about the villa was exceptional, it looks even more amazing in person than the pictures. The apartment my boyfriend and I stayed in was clean, and efficient
