As this was our first trip to Aruba we were amazed at how friendly a destination this was from our arrival at the airport to our home away from home for the week. The owner of the property, Mike provided us with perfect directions and tons of information about the area. We were able to relax poolside and enjoy the stunning sunsets all just feet from the beach. We had restaurant recommendations, the top 10 beaches and the top 10 things to do on the island as well as a multitude of information. We even shopped in a small local grocery store and were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and good prices. We experienced almost everything on the lists & ate at about 95% of the places recommended. Truly an enjoyable and relaxing getaway in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You could swim at your leisure and do as little or as much as you want. The closest beach was just as amazing...private...no tourists just mostly locals enjoying their day at leisure.
My family booked our family vacation to Aruba and for the first time we rented a private home. The house was in good condition. the outdoor patio and pool area really made the house stand out. Every night there was an amazing sunset that you could watch floating in the pool or relaxing under the palapa with a drink. Mike was easy to contact and followed up any requests we had during our stay quickly. My favorite thing about the house was having a "night swim" after dinner to cool off before bed.
