“A home away from home!”

We went on Trip Advisor a few months ago to seek great places to rent in Aruba and this one received rave reviews. Believe it! The owners, Louis and Karin, truly care about providing a relaxing, comfortable experience. They took us out to dinner at a local seafood place the first night. They regaled us with stories about their lives on the island. We received a true depth of experience through them that we would never have gotten at a resort. At the same time, they have full-time jobs and provided us plenty of privacy. Let's talk location. It's off the beaten path, away from the tourists. And that's a good thing. Their home is just steps from the water and a five-minute walk from Mango Halto Beach. The area gives you an extensive area to snorkel or to just lay in the water. While the coral reef isn't terribly colorful, the fish are. They provide free snorkels, fins, chairs and towels. They were thoughtful, too, giving us free use of a cel phone. The patio area is packed with shells and Aruban crafts, a great place to eat dinner outside. Karin thoughtfully places tea lights all over the place. We had the back cabana and it had all the basic comforts of home: kitchen, a truly snooze-worthy bed and a warm living area. Warning for the pet averse: they do own several dogs and a couple of cats. One of the cats (Jada) may come up to you but the dogs are cordoned off. In the vicinity, there are a couple of small food markets, a great food truck and a romantic by-the-sea restaurant in walking distance but a rental car is a must to get around. Signage is kind of poor so you kind of have to fake your way around but the island is so small, getting lost doesn't mean much. Bottom line: if you want a slightly off-the-beaten-path experience on Aruba, this is perfect. And the hosts couldn't have been nicer.
