Villa Opal was such a pleasure to stay at! The whole experience from booking and all the way through to departure was above and beyond in every way. Iris handled our online questions quickly and was genuinely happy to make sure our stay was the best it could be. Hilde greeted us with a warm welcome when we arrived and was helpful in every way possible during our stay. She popped to make sure the pool was clean at all times, but never intrusively. When she saw the ages of our children, she brought beach toys over to suit their age. We asked near the beginning of our stay if she might have an umbrella we could take to the beach (she didn't) but actually went and bought 2 for us the very next day! She used the opportunity to add umbrellas to the list of items she can now offer future guests. This is a level of helpfulness that we have never before experienced but truly put the owners of Villa Opal above others!

The villa itself was one of the most well set up places we have ever rented (and we've stayed in quite a number of them!) In the kitchen, there's not a single item that's been overlooked. It's well stocked with every dish and cutlery item you could ever hope for. Ample pots and pans to cook with, and even a slow cooker! More than enough towels, beach chairs, truly everything you might need.

The house was spotless and beautifully decorated. Outside, the pool was always clean, as many loungers as you could want and a lovely BBQ and dining table.

As for location, this villa is a few minutes walk to the nearest beach and a few minutes drive to the main hotel/shopping/dining area. There are also grocery stores very nearby.

If you are planning a trip to Aruba, and considering a villa rental, look no further. This villa and it's owners are the very best!!

“Simply amazing!”
Reviewed December 9, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Opal. The kids (and adults) enjoyed the beautiful pool a lot!!

The property had everything we needed to make our family vacation comfortable. The house was very clean and well organized. The bedrooms were spacious, the bathrooms well stocked with towels, soap and shampoo. Especially the kitchen was very well equipped with all sorts of appliances. We really felt at home :)

The hosts could not been more caring and helpful.
Thank you so much! See you next year!

We enjoyed a lot our stay in villa Opal. We have spent 19 wonderful days with our two daughters, their grandparents and aunt/uncle. The house is just perfect, very comfortable, beautiful, safe, and very well furnished.
Frank and his family think about everything to make your stay pleasant, they picked us and dropped us at the airport, they kept the private pool clean at all times, they were available during the stay when we needed them and even after we left Aruba they helped us with some personal belongings we left behind.
The location is great, only 10-15 min by foot to the nearest beach, also close to main supermarkets and the hotel area.
We will certainly return to villa Opal with our kids and family.

Very enjoyable stay for two couples, each with two kids (aged 6 to 11). Great house, in a quiet neighbourhood, and close to beaches in the north end. Groceries, highrise malls and tourist shopping areas are all within a few minutes drive. The interior is very nice, spacious and comfortable but most of our time, when at the house, was spent in the backyard cooling off in the pool and enjoying the aruban breeze with cold drinks in our hands. The apartment in the backyard was practical for a larger group, as well as clean and comfortable. Being in the Caribbean, there tends to be stray dogs and roosters around the neighbourhoods but we were never disturbed in any way during the night.

A nice touch as well was being greeted at the airport by Iris who helped us settle in. She also helped us get back to the airport with all our baggage which greatly exceeded the capacity of our Kia Picanto. We've rented a fair number of vacation properties in different countries and we would not hesitate to rent here again!

The owner were very helpfull and the service we have experienced was perfect since the first contact, till the end of our stay.
We were warmly welcomed on the airport and transferred to the Villa, got instructions and explanation about everything. On the next day we received unexpected a bath tub for our baby.
The location was quite and just perfecto for people looking for privacy and relax. The villa itself was very clean and causy furnished. The kitchen very well equiped. The pool clean and beautyfull. We would have loved to come back again, but unfortunately our dates have never matched with the availability of the villa.

Villa Opal was a perfect vacation home for our group of 6 adults. The home was spacious and offered plenty of room. Frank and Hilde were very accomodating and the house had plenty of ammenities. It was clean, close to attractions, and the pool was great. We could not have asked for a better place to stay during our vacation. We would definitely come back to Villa Opal!!!

“Perfect place for a family reunion in the sunny Caribbean”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The owners made sure that we were picked up from the airport and were very attentive. Hilde was very kind to our baby and was always checking that we had enough clean towels, enough kitchen utensils, etc. She also helped us book a doctor for my Mum who became suddenly very ill and thanks to this she got the attention she required and we all could enjoy the rest of the holiday. Booking was very easy via email with Frank. The pool was fantastic for everyone from baby to grandpa! Air conditioning is a must in Aruba because it is so hot and there was air conditioning in every room in the house. We had a great family holiday there and would love to return. The location requires for guests to rent their own vehicles. Public transport in the area is not to be relied on. There are plenty of supermarkets nearby (driving distance).
