We have traveled to Punta Cana, Riveria Maya, Cancun and the Bahamas, but I’m so glad we visited Aruba for the 1st time because it’s my new favorite vacation spot! I was a little nervous about renting a house, but it was just as fantastic as described in the photos. Mike was very responsive and easy to work with. There were 7 of us total with two children and we were all very comfortable with plenty of space. The house was clean and well maintained and the view was breathtaking. Everyone we met on the island was very pleasant and by renting instead of staying at a resort we got to explore the island and various beaches, which we enjoyed. Plus the pool was really nice and we enjoyed it every day after making trips to the beach. I also enjoyed the location, since it was close to so many places we wanted to visit. Our ages ranged from 3 to 70 and everyone had an amazing trip. We are planning another trip back in the winter and plan to stay here again!
We loved this house for our girls trip! The outdoor space was perfect for breakfast in the morning and cocktails in the evening. The location was great, an easy drive or cab ride to the beaches and shopping. The pool was great too! Any question we had was promptly answered and handled by Mike.
We (7 of us) had a great experience at this house and the island. It is close to everything, shopping, beaches etc. the pool and hot tub is top notch and the house is very comfortable with all the amenities a home needs. The owner was very prompt and easy to contact with any questions or answers. Very quiet area and very safe.
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.
