This was an great vacation from the moment we arrived and were greeted by the manager, Julie. She was very helpful, just like the owners Helen and David had been over email both before, under and after the trip. We felt like we ve got alot more than we paid for and thay supported With an additional informationthat was vet helpful even it we doesent ask for it or expect it. They even helped us with getting a christmastree as well as Food, and transportation when we arrived late and the car Companys was closed because of Christmas. Exellent service! When it comes to Villa Monplaisir the accommodations was even better then on the Pictures. It was light, good air and alot of Space. the nigbourhood was quiet even if it was Close to where everything! we didnt have a car available more than 1 day but that was not a problem at all. everybody we met at the island was very friendly and helpful and it was easy to get around by walking, bus and taxi.

We where 9 person trevelling together, 7 adults and 2 children (3 and 6 years old) and everybody found the house, Beach and island simply fantastic!

We are happy that you and kids enjoyed staying in our home and thank very much for the kind words.
... Well you can not have Christmas without Christmas tree especially when you are 3 or 6. Where Santa will put the gifts? :)
On a serious note since we are not a hotel and rent one party at a time we are able to cater to all your individual needs which makes your stay memorable and enjoyable.

We hope to see you again some day.

We just came back from our trip to Aruba.
Come to think of it we've been renting this house for our aruba vacations for the past 2 years and will be back in 2016. If you are not determined to be on the beach, this house is perfect. Walking distance from the beach,
shopping and restaurants. This home (and I'm saying home because it felt just like one)
is spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. Outside area (pool/cabana) - our favorite place to hang out!
I could go on and on about the positives all day. (The only negative was that we had to leave!)
But the bottom line is this: we felt as if we were staying in a family home.
The owners Helen and David are very accommodating, easy to work with, Julie and Randolph from management company are always there whenever you need them.
Thank you again Helen and David for sharing your home with us! We will be there next year!
Our search for a place to stay in Aruba is over, Believe us you will not be disappointed in renting this HOME.

“Relaxing private convenient comfortable”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Perfect spot. Spacious home with all the fixings, great pool, beautifully decorated, high end linens and well-equipped kitchen. Awesome location. Short walk to Palm Beach, shopping mall, casino's and all kinds of water activities. Close enough to everything, yet just far enough off the beaten path. I would recommend a car for getting around. There is off street parking. Owners are very easy to work with . Wonderful stay, and would stay again in a heartbeat.

Hey Robert, Thank you. You summarised the best features of our house nicely. That's what bought us in this villa in the first place. Just as you said - relaxing, private, convenient, comfortable. And yes - we only buy things for the house we would use ourselves. So everything we get there is of decent quality or better. So it seems we are on the same page - We will be happy if you will become one of our repeat customers

“Fun place to stay”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were pleasantly surprised to find accommodations better then on description. Large rooms, comfortable beds, large walk-in closets. Personally I always feel claustrophobic in spaces with low ceilings this house has cathedral ceilings throughout. We spend a lot of time in the courtyard which is totally private, has swimming pool, and a couple of nicely shaded sitting areas. My kids had a lot of fun in the pool could not get them out! All of us loved that pool We even played pool volleyball we found in the house. Outdoor shower was great we used it a lot. We used a grill and cabana for dinners several times grill worked fine and table is large and comfortable for 8 people. We especially liked sitting outside by the pool at night with a bottle of wine and coffee with pool light on. Although all rooms had TVs we haven't even watched them. Although we did used internet all the time. House is clean and well taken care off. We had pool cleaning service twice a week, and even gardener came once. I'd like to specially mention that location of this villa is fantastic hardly 10 minutes walk to the beach. Beach chairs, towels, coolers were provided by the owners which is very thoughtful of them. We did not have a car and it was quite manageable. Fast food, restaurants, convenience store, hight-rise hotels are all within 5-10 minutes walk. Aruba is a fantastic place for a vacation and villa Monplaisir is a great place to stay. In fact our friends who were with us are planning to stay in this villa next year just two of them because this house is beautifully private and they were wanting a romantic vacation for a long time
