  • This home is special. Kris and Evelyne are excellent hosts but what makes this place so special is the private beach and all the outdoor space. We had two little kids with us and this place is perfect for them - indeed they preferred it over baby beach. A little expensive even with two couples but an excellent value with three couples. Be sure to follow maps provided by hosts ahead of time because Google Maps didn’t work for us.

  • Not only is his home better than the pictures, they go above and beyond to make sure your stay is as comfortable and relaxing as possible. From a few things in the fridge for your first day, to toys for the kids, house cleaning; everything you could ever need they had! Being right down the road to baby beach was convenient for our little ones as well! We’ve always stayed at hotels in Aruba. This was our first time staying at a house, and we will definitely be going back!!

    Vicky2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is as expected and then a bit better on all accounts. All practicalities work smoothly due to the very professional and kind personnel. The house is clean and nice. View is stunning from the house and you hardly notice the oil plant. The beach in front is pretty much private. At least during our stay no one else was on the beach and the beach is very nice (also for kids). From the beach the view to the right is not so nice due to the oil plant but it pretty much doesn't matter because the view to the left and in front is absolutely stunning and you just focus your attention there. We had very high expectations for our stay and it far exceeded our expectations. It is very high value for money and the perfect place if you want a relaxing holiday.

    Christian2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a dream come true holiday at a beautiful beach home then this the place for you. You will have access to a stretch of sand beach that is all yours alone. Everything you need to sit on the beach is provided. The home is large and furnished with excellent taste. Your hostess is an amazing person that has an eye to detail and tailors it to the individual. Anytime night or day she is available to correspond with you and will be helpful even with unforeseen issues occur. There is a maid service at the home 5 hours a day. This can be altered through the hostess but it is wonderful going sightseeing and coming home to a very clean home.

    Carlos2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you are thinking about booking this house....BOOK IT! Kris and Evelyn are amazing to work with. The house was amazing and having our own little private beach area put the icing on the cake. We did end up booking a lot of adventures up near Oranjestad so there was a lot of time driving in a car but it was worth it to not be in the tourist/cruise ship area. The best beach is located just a short drive down the road at Baby Beach and they serve the best drinks and food so you can't go wrong!

    Tara2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing space. What can i say, everything was impeccable. We loved our stay here and would recommend it to anyone. 10 out of 10!

    Michelle2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • It's everything the pictures show and more. The hospitality was truly warm and the location a perfect getaway if you want to experience the island instead of the garish crowded tourist section. Baby Beach and Rodgers Beach were both in walking distance, and Arikok National Park just a short ride (rent a jeep, though). So most memorable experience and a great place.

    Treat Yourself To An Unforgettable, Tropical Romantic Caribbean Experience!
    The minute you walk-in through that door.. The spectacle begins! This picturesque 180˚panorama of turquoise blue sea-view hits you like no other! To just simply gaze at the view.. or sunbathe.. or a jump into the crystal clear sea for a swim or a snorkel! A game of beach-tennis.. or maybe.. a kayak ride-out and hopefully.. if you're really lucky.. get to see some sea- turtles!!! All from the comfort, privacy and luxury of your own private beach!! While being only steps away, in your exclusive romantic cabin getaway!
    This property is located in an area called Seroe Colorado, which used to be a colony of exclusively inhabited American Oil refinery (Lago) community. This versatile east- side coastline of the island is surrounded by desert like vegetation, impressive rock formations and unique beach bays which vary from the famous shallow, calm water Baby Beach to simply what kite surfers call paradise Boca Grandi, for its well sized waves and its constant break to the beach. And at night.. due to its vast vegetation and lack of disturbing lights, a true star spectacle haven can be witnessed and appreciated by not only astronomy lovers.
  • Mariucca and Reynaldo are the perfect hosts that we were so sad to say goodbye to. We had a phenomenal time at their beautiful home ideally located minutes from our favorite beach. We loved the fresh and delicious breakfasts prepared by them while sitting and soaking up a view that really can't be described. Their home is a true, peaceful oasis that we hope to return to again and again.

    Jason2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t read the reviews just book! This place is possibly the best Air BnB that we have ever stayed. From the food, to the hospitality, location, activities, the space itself. The photos don’t do it justice. Just book now - you won’t regret it. We had our dream honeymoon here. It’s so close to beautiful beaches, you can kayak, and even just swim in Reynaldo’s backyard. It’s truely amazing.

    Rosey2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • It’s taken me a few days to write this review because it’s hard to put our experience into words. We had the most amazing four days at the beautiful Paradise built by Reynaldo and his wife Mariucca. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with sincere kindness and genuine hospitality by our two amazing hosts. Aruba is a very special place in itself, but the slice of paradise that these two exceptional people have carved out for themselves and chosen to share with those of us lucky enough to experience it is something else all together. We will never forget our experience here: the utter beauty of the place, the tranquility, the privacy, but utmost the kindness and hospitality of our hosts. The meals, Puma the puppy dog! What an amazing experience all around...I cannot say enough. We even went skinny dipping on their private beach! We want to share this little slice of heaven with everyone, yet keep it our own little secret all at the same time! We will be back as soon as humanly possible, next time for the full week rather than the four short days we we there. Thank you, so so much, Reynaldo and Mariucca. We truly hope to stay in touch and see you again soon. Love from Heidi and Dan

    Heidi2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Reynaldo will welcome you and feel like family The breakfasts were amazing and we ended up staying on site for both dinners which were also awesome cooked by them. Loved the history of the Island he shared and the spots to check out while we were there. Highly recommend his place for his hospitality, great beach, and welcoming experience. Reynaldo = A happy island Thanks for an awesome experience

    Tracey2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Reynaldo and Mariucca made this special week in our lives completely unforgettable. My husband planned our entire honeymoon himself, and I will be frank, he doesn't always do the best job when it comes to planning things out all the way, so I was a bit skeptical. Well.....it was beautiful!!! He hit a home run with Reynaldo's place. Not only was it immaculate, but the views were stunning, the bed was comfortable, and it was PRIVATE. And breakfast every day? Incredible. I especially liked the cheese crepe and yogurt. It was such a great perk that I wasn't even expecting. Additionally, Mariucca made us pizza on our last night with them, and it was so delicious. You can tell everything was fresh, and she knows what she is doing! I have never felt more welcome than I did here. Even though you are only 3 minutes from Baby Beach, having the private beach down below the cliffs at Reynaldo's is terrific. We were able to go and lay in the sand, look at the rocks, snorkel, and float around all day with no interruptions. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. This is, by far, the best trip I have ever been on in my life. We are already planning a return visit for an anniversary!

    Leah2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Reynaldo and his wife were fantastic hosts! They paid so much attention to every little detail like my gluten free diet. Food was delicious! They both very warm and hospitable and made our stay very special. Location is great with a sandy beach and excellent snorkeling right in front of the house. Beachside massage was a fantastic addition. Looking forward to our return trip and we will definitely stay with Reynaldo when we return.

    Laura2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Reynaldo and his wife Mariucca were amazing hosts who went above and beyond for us during our stay. We were greeted with freshly made juice and great conversation upon our arrival. That evening they prepared us a beautiful dinner with fresh Grouper that was caught locally. The food was phenomenal and being able to enjoy our meal overlooking the ocean was wonderful! They were more than accommodating to my food allergies, unfortunately I have quite a few, but it was not a problem. In the morning they prepared a wonderful breakfast accompanied by fresh fruit and juice and even wrapped up what we were unable to finish to take with us! We would have loved to stay at their place longer but we had a wedding to attend at an all exclusive resort at the other end of the island. Reynaldo was so kind to drive us there when we checked out. The food, accommodations, wine selection and company at Reynaldos place were a thousand times better than anything we had at the resort. The energy that these hosts bring is beautiful! We will most definitely be back to enjoy this little piece of paradise! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    Kelly2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely worth it. Awesome people , good food, great location. Would highly recommend. They went out of there way to make sure it was a good trip. And the view/ property was beautiful. Really made our trip .

  • lovely space! thank you cees!

    Michael2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had the pleasure to vacation at this fantastic red cottage by the sea. With wonderful hosts who were there to greet us on arrival, to respond quickly with any questions or extras we required. The home is spotlessly clean and has every provision you need doe vacation from towels to beach chairs and a noodle to being to the water. You are truly 5-10 mins walk to the beach. Cees responded immediately when we has issues with air conditioning. He had a repairman there ASAP. I would recommend this oasis my the beach with 5 stars.

    Kelly2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • What a little gem of a house and what a beautiful location! We absolutely loved staying on this end of the island! Cees is a wonderful host, and we will miss her and this house. We will definetly book this house again!

    Paula2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Location and the rental were perfect. We loved staying at the quiet side of the island. Rodgers beach was where we spent our days , afternoons were spent watching the kite surfers ( only 3 miles away) and evenings were spent attempting to catch sand crabs at Rodgers beach. ( attempted because they’re quick little suckers) We rented a Jeep for our 2 week stay. We only ate out 6 times, having a kitchen saved with cost. Two nights we had dinner on the beach by candle : moon light. Cees and Anke were perfect hosts. They respected our privacy. I called them one night on accident. I received a call back within a couple minutes. :) We were 100% satisfied with our stay. After Going to the hotel zone a couple of times I realized very quickly it was way to busy for us. We couldn’t wait to see the big red boat anchor on the quite end of the island after a night out.

    Raylene2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Cees's cottage is a wonderful little bungalow that is minutes from several beautiful beaches on the quiet side of Aruba. We were there for an extended week of kiteboarding at Boca Grandi and this spot was a perfect place to stay: comfy living room, spacious kitchen for meal prep, and nice air conditioning throughout to cool down and recharge. Plus, Cees was incredibly easy to communicate with via WhatsApp both before and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again!

    Michael2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great. A very quiet location 'off the beaten track', very close to the beach (<5 min walk to Rodger's Beach) with a nice ocean view. Great if you enjoy walks at the ocean. The place is well equipped and clean and we made most of our meals on the island at this 'home away from home'.

    Arend2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is very cute and well equipped. Cees and Anke were great hosts. We had a drain problem and Cees had if fixed the next morning. Great views of the ocean and only 2 minutes to beautiful Baby Beach.

    Brad2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to be if you want to be away from the high rise district!! Very quiet and relaxing, which is what we were looking for. Cees always responded quickly to any questions I had. Highly recommendable!

    If you love nature & your feet in the sand. Hear the waves crash, see the sun rise over the magnificent Caribbean blue sea. This is where the adventurer in you soars. Comfortably suitable for 6 people. A great room and spacious master bedroom plus an awesome patio for BBQ's. We provide many amenities and tiny details for the beach trip, or even in the full kitchen where we've included sugar, spices,etc. We want you to feel like you're home sweet paradise home.
    Wake to the birds chirping happily and sleep to the enchanting sound of the sea. A Spacious Master BD & Bath/2nd BD & 3/4 bath. Grand Room with sofa bed/Full Kitchen, Dishwasher, Laundry Room. 2 Patios/2 Upper Decks. The bungalow is renovated and in the small community Seroe Colorado also known as The Colony. It is a 12 minute walk to Baby Beach. The house has a fully equipped kitchen with a grand room. There are 2 bathrooms with luxurious rainfall showerheads. You can enjoy your morning cup of joe on the patio with the birds singing merrily under the cooling ceiling fans. Later in afternoon you can enjoy a BBQ after a long day at the beach, kiting, exploring the island or caves . This is the perfect spot to unwind and read a book. There are restaurants on the beach, but we recommend renting a car because both places close at sundown. It's a short 30 minute drive to historic Orangestad for shopping fine dining and about 40 minutes to the high rise hotel area and nightlife. If you're the adventurous type or one that prefers the quiet life, this is the place for you.
    Quiet and safe neighborhood away from the city hustle and bustle. Seldom used streets allow for biking, jogging and walking and enjoying nature. We are walking distance to Baby Beach, Seroe Colorado and the sea cliffs and a natural bridge which is seldom known about but definitely one of the most beautiful sights on the island. Wild donkeys come to visit and roam our area frequently.
  • This is one of those hidden gems off the beaten path in Aruba. You will feel like you are at home and learn so much about the local life. Cherie and Lester are genuinely nice people who you want to have as friends. The location is minutes to the beach and Cherie makes beach chairs and coolers available. I know where I am going to stay next winter when I come back to Aruba. If you don't like to stay in the hotel district, where it's very commercial, congested and expensive, hop in a car at the airport, drive a quick 25 min to your Aruba escape at Cheries house. You will have your own private house and kitchen. I fell in love with Cheries rescued pups. They are gentle, sweet and funny.

    Carol2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay at Baby Beach House! Cherie and Lester are wonderful hosts. The house is clean and has all amenities you need. They provide all the necessary beach gear. Tips for where to eat and for entertainment were excellent. Be sure to go hear Lester's band play. They are really good! So close to baby beach ( 2 min drive) which is the prettiest beach on the island. And we really loved the visits from the fur babies. We highly recommend booking a stay at Baby Beach house!

    Trudee2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Cheri’s apartment is located in a quiet corner of Aruba surrounded by natural desert vegetation. If peace and quiet are qualities you value you could not find a better location. As an added bonus Cheri and Lester take in rescue dogs that add a special quality to your visit. Sweet and loving canines looking for some affection if you want extra company. Especially delightful is Susana, a dog who “adopted “ us during out stay. Baby Beach is a short drive away that is especially good for children and casual snorkeling.

    Larry2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Cherie and Lester's place is amazing - really clean and comfortable amenities. Their location on the southern point of the island is fantastic - very quiet, secluded, and, lovely, and only 3 min drive from two fantastic beaches (Baby Beach and Rodgers Beach). They are also close to good hikes (including the Seroe Colorado "lighthouse" where you can catch fantastic sunrises!). Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a clean comfortable place to slow down and relax. Cherie and Lester are also amazing hosts. They are very inviting, and easy to get along with. And they had fantastic island recommendations as well as resources (maps, beach gear, etc) to help make the best out of our 8 days in Aruba. Thank you for helping make our Aruba trip so memorable!

    Franco2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing place to stay if you want to spend some time exploring the wild southern area of Aruba. Close to the cool town of San Nicolas and great beaches and hiking. Fabulous hosts.

    Vera2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We could not have a better experience. This place is so confortable and great. It was really clean and well decorated. There are so many things that we can use (sunscreen, snorkeling kits, ect). The host, Cherie, is a very kind wowan she even proposed us activities, gave us a tour of Baby Beach and gave us rides to San Nicolas. This airbnb is the best that I rented. :)

    Léa2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay Hefe. Cherie is a such a nice host. She explained us a lot and gave as good recommendations. The apartment is nice a very clean. We enjoyed the short walking distance to Baby Beach as well as the nice patio!

    Tan2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • I couldn’t believe how great it was to stay with Cherie and Lester down in quiet Seroe Colorado. Great little apartment that was super clean and comfortable. It was an extremely relaxing week and I really feel like Cherie and Lester are family now. They gave us all the best local tips and we also did a little spelunking with Lester and had a ball hanging out at one of his band’s gigs. As I look back over the trips I’ve done in my lifetime, this one was easily the most relaxing. Great beaches a couple minutes from the house and perfect weather the whole week. Cherie and I even spotted a Cera Cera from the back porch. Loved it, simply loved it.

In addition, a Caribbean style garden provided very many individual spaces for relaxation and enjoyment. Thank you again.

  • This Airbnb has everything you need and more! Bryan and his mom are very hospitable and made sure my stay was very comfortable. This was my second stay here and I'd be happy to stay here again the next time I'm in Aruba!

    Gabi2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

  • A fantastic place to stay. Bryan's mom was a fantastic host. Had a very good stay there.

    Roven2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • From start to finish I communicated with Glenda, Bryan's Mom, regarding my stay. She was amazingly helpful and went out of her way to make my short stay as convenient & efficient as possible. Her brother and grandson were also very nice. I went from a flight delay and a lost bag to the feeling that people in Aruba are extended family. The apartment was very private, up a staircase in back and had a decent view from the 2nd floor. I did not use half of the studio-apt style kitchen bc I was only there 1 night... however I could see this being a convenient stay longer-term. The only minor issue is location accuracy - Google Maps thinks this address is ~3 blocks away. I mentioned this to Bryan so hopefully future travelers won't have an issue- and in fairness this problem is very common for Google in foreign countries, where street numbers don't align logically. Overall, this was the perfect long layover where I enjoyed kitesurfing in Boca Grandi and Glenda really was a SuperHostess to make this all possible.

    To give guests more privacy these spaces are added to the Green Bungalow, indoor. This is a special, quiet neighborhood with approximately 100 residents. Besides the locals, many tourists visit the famous Baby Beach. A 20 minutes drive from the airport and 30 minutes to Oranjestad. The apartment is adjacent to a fully renovated bungalow. The bedrooms of the bungalow are at the other side, far from the apartment. The apartment, with small bathroom, has a separate entrance with a front garden.
    The apartment consists of an airconditioned living room with comfortable rocking chairs in front of a t.v. with free Netflix access and a ceiling fan. The airconitioner cools the entire apartment, including the kitchen. The bedroom is connected to the bathroom. There is space in the connected garage for swimming or kite surfing gear. The kitchen has a small table with chairs, there is another table with chairs in the living room. As only the kitchen area is walled by the kitchen area of the house the guests in the apartment have complete privacy. These bungalows were build in the sixties with 10 cm thick walls, what also makes the houses cooler. A unique space to relax.
    Seroe Colorado is also unique for the history and upcoming changes in infrastructure and developments to make the area even more attractive for both locals as tourists. On walking distance we have a few restaurants, a shop where you can rent snorkeling and diving gear. As there is no motorized water sports we have a special location called Boca Grandi (big mouth in the local language), a 5 minute drive from the apartment for kite surfers.

    Wonderfully secluded home, perfectly suitable for any type of island visitor. It’s the ideal retreat for an exquisite & up-scale stay, located close to the stunning Baby beach. We believe it’s the ultimate location to experience Aruba the way it should be. Get ready to get inspired! Very close to Rogers Beach too. All in all, guaranteed enjoyment and relaxation. All day long.
    This superbly styled home makes for a perfect luxurious getaway. Ideal for couples looking for a “home away from home” or a romantic break. It especially suits groups of friends & family looking for one of the best locations on the island. Great for people looking for an exquisite Aruban home. Comfortable, calm and convenient. We love to go that extra mile so you feel like you are at home. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The home features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. The living area/dining area gives you an open concept feel with a nice breeze of the front porch of the home. You can relax at night in a comfortable TV room and watch a movie on Netflix. On the back porch of the kitchen you can also enjoy a nice meal/barbecue in the company of your family and friends.
    This property is amazing all year round for a visit to Aruba! Baby Beach is about a 7 minute walk from your home. Take in spectacular ocean views and indulge in shallow, crystal clear water at this magnificent paradise, Baby Beach. Famous Baby Beach in the southern part of Aruba, close to San Nicolas, is a true Caribbean beach paradise. This gorgeous half-moon sandy expanse in a calm lagoon is ideal for families with small kids. The shallow waters make it a prime beach destination for swimmers who like to wade out for a long distance and still touch the sea bottom. Where the bay opens out to the ocean, Baby Beach also offers the perfect location for snorkeling; for your safety please stay within the marked snorkel area. Baby Beach offers a refreshment stand where you can also enjoy a hamburger or hot dog whilst mingling with the locals. Big Mama's Grill offers BBQ, as well as seafood platters, in case you have a bigger appetite. Beach beds, windscreens and snorkel gear are available at a rental fee. Complimentary huts are placed throughout the beach to protect you from the sun. Close-by is a local dive shop offering snorkel and dive gear rentals. Loads to do for all tastes, from outdoors adventures for explorers to total isolation for those who prefer the homely and the comfy!
  • This house is everything and more than what the pictures show. We enjoyed the upper deck to watch the sunset every night over the ocean. We also loved that the kitchen had all the cookware and eating utensils you need for a meal in. The bedrooms were air conditioned and the beds were comfortable! The entire property was like staying at resort of our own. Baby Beach is a very short drive ( not a far walk) and was beautiful. Beach chairs, umbrella's, many towels, snorkeling gear were all provided. We enjoyed the property away from the typical tourist area. The neighborhood was extremely safe and quiet. You didn't have to travel far to enjoy other parts of the country. We did rent a car. Arnold was an outstanding host. He was responsive and very helpful. He made me and my family very comfortable and made sure we had everything we needed, answered all of our questions, had several suggestions to ensure we enjoyed our time in Aruba. Arnold invited us to watch Carnival with him, his family and friends, - we were welcomed by all of them and was an incredible experience. If you want a true Aruba experience, and a relaxing vacation not dealing with the tourist scene, I highly recommend you book this house now!!! Arnold went over and beyond for us, and we will 100% recommend this property to anyone and everyone.

  • Outstanding rental. Away from the resorts and bustle of the island. Amazing views of the ocean and sunsets over the water. Quick walk to some of the nicest beaches on the island. We had our 6yr and 4yr old kids with us and it was super safe and great place to spend time with the family. Arnold was great. He made himself easily accessible and gave us some very good local recommendations.

    Andrew2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot recommend this rental or our host highly enough. The space is exactly as amazing as it looks in the pictures: the gazebo hut outside, the deck with an amazing view, the patios facing different directions, all the windows and all the light--it was truly spectacular. We were so busy seeing everything we could on the island that we only wished we had spent more time in this lovely, bright home. With the windows and doors open, the phenomenal Aruba breezes make this place feel almost like a dream. The neighborhood is quiet and private. It is just a two-minute drive to Baby Beach, and maybe even a little shorter to Rodgers Beach. Arnold was a fantastic host: so friendly and also professional. He answered every question we had and gave great advice on where to shop and where to eat. He provided so much: more towels than we could count, beach chairs, a cooler, even a little extra sunscreen to supplement what we brought. Book this place immediately--you will not regret it!

  • Arnold and Jemal, were outstanding host. Even though our flight was delayed, and we came in late, Arnold and Jemal were there to greet us! They even had food for our family, knowing nothing was open and our family would be hungry!! KINDNESS!! AND Arnold and Jemal angered any questions we had within a very short response time!! The house was large and very clean, with everything you need to make your home away from home complete! The house is set in southern Aruba, where I would say is the "real" Aruba, I felt the northern part of Aruba was more resorty (if that is a word). The house is close to the most beautiful beach in Aruba, Baby Beach! The best food places we experienced were: O'Neils Kitchen(San Nicholas, Caribbean food), Zeerovers, Dutch Pancake House and Barefoot! I can't say enough about the house and location, Arnold and Jemal and ARUBA, ONE HAPPY ISLAND!!!

    Ann2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • First the location - this is the best part of the island, another world from the commercial time-share/soulless resort/cruise ship tourism in the northern part. A cross between Arizona and sleepy Caribbean. Great beaches a few minutes by car - both the calm and wild varieties. At least five local restaurants within 10 mins drive - and the same food will cost 40% compared to stylish restaurants and is probably better. (Caveat: you definitelt need a car. ) Also very close to the southern entrance of the national park. The place is just amazing. Lots of space, wonderful lounge area in tbe garden plus a terrace to watch the sunsets. Kitchen is very well equiped and there is a gas grill in the garden. Also a room with a home entertainment center and a large smart TV- you just need to remember your netflix password. We were still trying to find our way around the house after a few days. Having stayed in a few places on this trip (due to last minute reservations), this must be one of the best values on the island. If you are into diving, Pure Divers is a great dive shop, about 20 mins drive. A great kite surfing school is five minutes away with the best winds in the Caribbean. We are definitely coming back. Thanks Arnold, for your hospitality.

    Lorris2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Super location, nothing is missing. If I were to visit Aruba again, I would come back here.

    Kathleen2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, scenic views, spotless clean property with great attention to detail would definitely recommend to anyone considering staying in Aruba looking for a private location.

    Welcome to the Green Bungalow, where we will do everything to make you feel at home. The bungalow consists of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, covered front porch with ceiling fans and open seating in backyard. The bedrooms and livingroom/kitchen have an airconditioner. Baby Beach is the place to relax, with sugar powder white sand and crystal clear water where you can swim with small turtles and shy fishes. No motorized water sports. A perfect area for walking and hiking.
    The bungalow is completely renovated and located in the quiet and safe community Seroe Colorado at the south end of Aruba. It is a 5-10 minutes walk to the famous Baby and Rodgers Beach. The Bungalow comes with two fully equipped kitchens, a gas stove top and an electric stovetop in the island. It has a big t.v. screen and a smaller one in the apartment. Sitting in the front porch or back yard you can enjoy the greenery in total privacy. There are 2 identical spacious bathrooms as en-suite (see photo) with soap, shampoo, conditioner. In the connected apartment is a small 3 piece bathroom next to the bedroom. Beach towels and chairs with coolboxes and ice packs are ready for a trip to the beach. Guests have the entire bungalow for themselves. When the sun shines fiercely on the backyard you can have breakfast overlooking the front yard with the songs of the birds under the cooling ceiling fans. In the afternoon you can enjoy the serene back yard which is soothing lighted to rewind in the cool sea breeze after a day at the beach, shopping in town, exploring the island or perhaps cave hunting or surfing. This is an ideal location to read or even write a book. The windows of the open concept kitchen/living room open front and back to enjoy the cooling wind throughout. The two ceiling fans here make it even cooler. There are restaurants close by, but it is recommended to rent a car. In a half hour drive you can visit the more touristic areas with many shops, restaurants and nightlife. Especially for the guests who prefer not such a busy area; this is the area to fully unwind and recharge.
    Seroe Colorado is the name of this area with approximately a 100 houses with residents. Several houses are still not renovated and last week the government has announced that they will come up with a permanent solution. Especially as there will be many developments in this area. The name is from the hill/short mountain (Seroe) with the lighthouse. Colorado means colored from the many years of droppings of the seabirds. When the sun hit the droppings it showed different colors. The formed phosphate was a lucrative business in those years and the mine ways are still in place under the rock plateaus. There is a lot of history in this area, easy to explore by foot.
  • The Green House was absolutely perfect for our Aruban getaway! Margarita met us in her car and showed us to the house when we were lost and walked us through everything we would need for the week. She was so helpful and even brought fresh aloe from her garden when I had a bad sunburn! The space was wonderful - clean, efficient but plenty of space for the two of us, and with gorgeous outdoor living spaces. The two twin beds/king bed in the large bedroom were quite firm, and the queen bed was medium firm, with each room having its own air conditioning. We were thrilled with the proximity to Baby Beach - a three minute drive around the corner and we were there! It was nice to be away from the resorts and the hustle and bustle of the city. The Green House really felt like home for a week, and we're hoping to go back as soon as we can!

    Katie2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing home.clean extremely spacious.i couldn’t have asked for a better host,Margarita gets five ⭐️ ! We completely relaxed and enjoyed both the front patio and the backyard. beautifully landscaped and well maintained.. the home was well supplied with Kitchen and bath supplies. Margarita even had made sure there was food to prepare when we arrived. Bananas,juice bread fresh eggs ect,. We truly did not want to leave,we would be happy and content to stay. our plan is to definetly go back. I will say I can be a shock when driving into Sero Colorado, many abandoned broken down homes,you think to yourself where the am I going, but as I had been in the area before I knew what to expect. However, you will be extremely surprised to arrive at the beautiful green beach house. You definitely need a car so you can explore the island. I have been 5 times to Aruba, and will be extremely happy to stay here again!! To hos host and new lifelong friend Margarita...you are simply the best. Many hugs til we meet again!!! Demetrios and joy

    Joy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very stylish home. A local hidden gem. Great value for the money next to beautiful Baby Beach. Margarita was a wonderful host and very accommodating. Great kitchen with plenty of staples available. Nice comfortable beds and great clean large showers. Outstanding TV and stereo system. They also had beach towels and chairs to use for the walk to the beach. If you want peace and quiet away from the crowds of the high rise district, this is the home for you. Will see you again.

    David2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Margarita was a wonderful hostess. Before the trip, she emailed directions to the bungalow, along with notes about the local markets/shops, etc. She met us at to give us a tour of the bungalow as we pulled up in our rental car, gave us welcome hugs, and stayed in touch the entire stay, ensuring we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The space is beautiful! My favorite part was the back garden for morning breakfast and some early sun. When the sun is high, the covered outdoor space is great for dinner and is fully equipped with a coal grill. Then, who can complain about the short walk to one of the best beaches on Aruba!

    Kyle2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Margarita was a terrific host. She communicated with me promptly, and was very accommodating. She offered tips about where to go and what to do, and brought us a special, homemade local treat on Christmas.

    Laura2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Margarita is a super host. She communicated with us very well before, during and at the time of our checkin. She made very welcome and comfortable. The apartment is very cozy and full of amenities such beach chairs, sand toys for kids, etc. The apartment is very close to baby beach. Thanks to Margarita and the house owner Mark for the hospitality. Will stay agin the future if we visit the island

    Pratik2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Was a very relaxing time

    Justin2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This house is within walking distance of Baby Beach and we went there almost everyday. Baby Beach is fantastic for kids and just for relaxing and enjoying that quintessential Caribbean white sandy beach. The neighborhood you are in is not touristy at all and some of the houses are run down but this one is fantastic! All modern and with every thing you need for a great time. Also wonderful help from a great host!

    Arjun2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Previously we had stayed in the northern part of Aruba and on our second stay we wanted to stay in San Nicolas to experience the southern part of the island. Bryan's place was easy to find and super convenient to our favorite beach: Mangel Halto. It is also very close to downtown and the airport. We didn't meet Bryan, but he is always in excellent communication and very prompt with responses. Another family member checked us in and it was seemless and very easy, as was check out. Everything was perfect about our stay and we enjoyed ourselves very much.

    Tanya2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay. Very clean

    Vignesh2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Second time I've stayed at Bryan's place. His mom is onsite and very friendly, you'll feel like part of the family! And Snowy, is the sleepiest dog I ever met! If you want to stay near Baby Beach and away from the tourist hustle and bustle in the north, this is a great value apartment. Easy to find, good wi-fi, Cable TV, within walking distance to a supermarket, excellent Air Conditioning. If you're looking for a place to safely store your stuff and sleep in peace at night in the San Nicolas area, this spot is for you!

    Ted2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cozy place, while Bryan himself wasn't there to greet me, his mother was ans she was most accommodating.

    Catalina2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Bryan’s place was great! The location was pretty close to the village, which was where I spent most of my time. I mostly interacted with Bryan’s mom, and she was super hospitable and generous. No issues with the place, and I would definitely stay here.

  • The villa is pristine. Clean, well stocked, lots of special touches. Kris went above and beyond to make sure our stay was top notch. We loved staying in her beautiful villa. It had everything we needed and more. Very comfortable beds. Great size bedrooms. Amazing views. Excellent communication. Kitchen was fully stocked including Keurig pods. They had bikes waiting for us and snorkel gear. Baby Beach is a short bike ride away and was our favorite beach. We loved everything about our stay and will be back! Our friends are already asking about the villa from the photos we’ve posted. Highly recommend. Kris was with us every step of the way making sure we were well taken care of. Just amazing.

    A beautiful place for dawn patrol, good wind and plenty of free style. This side of Aruba is for the adventurer in you. The room can accommodate 3 people to sleep, 2 comfortably & roomy. The house is large with vaulted ceilings. 2 roof top decks for sunning and star gazing, 4 patios for a quiet cup of coffee. We've got balmy breezes, birds chirping and donkeys roaming free. And if you have to work, the wifi keeps you in touch while still enjoying the islands best.
    A separate entrance and a private bathroom with shower. It has a queen bed with a twin bed as a sofa. The room has a microwave, a small coffee pot and a mini-fridge. Walking distance to the beach. Kite beach/Boca Grande is a 5 minute drive
    I ♡ Aruba. We hear the sound of the sea at night. The wild donkeys visit and we feed them by hand. The hiking. The beaches with pink sand. Swimming with the Sea Turtles. This is my slice of heaven.
  • We had a great stay at Cherie and Lester’s. They have been very helpful with advice and recommendations, and the room was nice and clean, and close to the beach. We felt at home and would visit them again!

    Ine2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Had such a great stay on this side of the island. Preferred this area to the busier spots closer to the capital. Cherie was very laid back and helpful. So many good recommendations. The room was quiet and comfortable. Loved all the dog companions. Fantastic value overall. Staying here gives a feel for living on the island vs. Hotel life. Would stay again in the future.

  • Cherie's place is great if you are planning to go down to Aruba to Kiteboard. Her house is less than a 5min drive to really the best place to kite on the island. She and her husband were exceptional hosts and went out of there way to make us comfortable. Cherie even picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. Great spot for anyone going down to Kiteboard.

    Brent2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place was exactly what we expected, quiet and nice. Close to the Baby beach, far enough from craziness of hotels and tourist areas, but since the whole island is very small, everything is very reachable, but you have to have a car. Cherry and her husband were very friendly and helpful, so we hope we got some new friends for a life. Highly recommended. And yes, you have to love animals, because their dogs are big "cuddlers."

    Marina2019-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay away from the hustle and bustle. Close to many beaches (Baby, Boca Grandi, etc). Cherie and Lester are very friendly. We even hung out a few times after our stay with them. Totally recommend staying here!

    Ania2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I was coming to the island to kite so location was perfect. Boca Grandi Beach is really the only kite location I would consider on the island and the room is only a short 5 minute drive. Quiet, clean, and comfortable are the best descriptions. They also have nice kiter amenities including an outside shower and plenty of room for gear outside to dry. The hostess is truly 5 star with excellent communications. I would stay here again. Nice job Cherie and Lester.

    Jason2018-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Cherie and Lester are warm, open, friendly and helpful hosts. The location is perfect if you want to encounter a variety of extraordinary and fairly unspoilt natural landscapes. Superhost status is well deserved!

    Peter2018-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation with absolutely lovely hosts. Fully equipped kitchen, easy checkin and checkout. Dogs available but super sweet and cute. Best, most beautiful beach (Baby Beach) in the area. Supermarket and localities easy to reach by car. If you want to get in contact with restaurants and not keen on tourists strongholds, you are in good hands here. Oranjestad can be reached by car in less than 30 minutes. Would come back!

    This is a very cute heavenly room. Literally wake up to the nicest beach on the island. Enjoy your stay in this perfect spacious apartment with natural light coming in from the big sliding door steps away from the beach. Explore the wonders of Aruba, staying right on the most preserved beach in Aruba. Our lovely apartment gives you the true Caribbean experience. waking up to the ocean washing up on the rocks just waiting for you to plunch in and start your adventure.
    The beach right in front has the clearest shades of blue waters. It has been rated the number 1 beach in Aruba and has been mentioned in many articles around the world. It is a preserved beach due to the mangroves on the right where the beach starts which means they really take very good care of the flora and fauna making it the best snorkeling and diving spot. It also has a shipwreck that you can go explore. We have added pictures of the shipwreck in our photos. Remember this is all right outside your place. We offer some really nice tours like snorkeling, clear kayaking and more. You can ask about these upon arrival.
  • If you are going to Aruba just wanna let you know that no better place then Savanetta. Johns rooms are the best,best place ever. We enjoyed every minute with my family.John and his wife are the sweetest persons ever we met. John is the best guy ever. If you wanna best experience go to Johns place. Thank you guys! Francesca miss you .

    Yana2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our trip was amazing! The room was so cute and just steps away from the beach. John, our host was so sweet and nice-he made us delicious coffee every morning. He also gave us tips on where to eat. The views were stunning. So nice to have a quieter, more private area to relax. John took us snorkeling and let us use his paddle board-all which you do right in front of the beach. The sunsets every night were so beautiful. You should rent a car to get around the island. No hot water but the cool water felt very refreshing after a long day in the sun. Everyone was so friendly. Will definitely come back again!

    Mary2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Alessandra’s place is amazing!! It’s located right across from Mangel Halto on the water and you can just walk out your door to the best snorkeling we had on the island!!!! The property is beautiful and are area quiet and peaceful! Amazing sunsets right outside your door! There were beach loungers available to quests which was really nice. The large king bed was super comfy and the bathroom was also very big, a great space! We also enjoyed a day at baby beach which is nearby and my favorite meal on the island, Zeerover is also close by. We would absolutely stay here again! Thanks Alessandra!

    Katie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Matthew2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing experience!!!! Loved absolutely everything about my stay. John and Marie are amazing hosts... they create such an unique environment. 🥰🇦🇼 Mashiii Dankiii

    Jennifer2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was wonderful. The surf was a bit rough when we were visiting, but the views of the bay across the street from the cliffs were spectacular. Definitely off the beaten path. We thoroughly enjoyed reading on the lounge chairs provided by the thoughtful hosts. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, and dishes, so we were also set for breakfast and lunch, and ate out in Oranjestad (West Deck, Yemanja, and Gostoso) for dinners. Sundays are a bit busier on the cliffs, with cookouts and occasionally loud music, but the other days were quiet and peaceful. We look forward to returning!

    Adam2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great time we didn't want to leave! John and Marie were incredible hosts and we already can't wait to go back and stay with them again. John even took us snorkeling, which was an amazing experience! John and Marie are so nice and truly want you to enjoy and are always there to offer suggestions. We spent the second part of our trip in the Palm Beach area, but nothing beats the Mangel Halto area. We had so much fun and can't wait to come back!

    Pete2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing trip. This is the place to be if you want a true Aruban experience. John and Marie are the friendliest, most helpful hosts I’ve ever had. They really made this trip an 11/10. Thank you so much. Highly recommend!

    The ocean is your backyard. Enjoy quiet sunsets at the less crowded side of the island.
  • We booked this airbnb on a gut feeling that it would be amazing, little did we know, it would blow our expectations of "amazing" completely out of the water: it was incredible! For those of you wondering about the layout, this guest house is positioned next to the main house that Abigail and her family lives in, on the opposite side of the water/dock shown in photos. The guest house is newly renovated, extremely modern and clean and has just about everything you need for your stay. The kitchen has just about everything, short of a stove, but that doesn't matter because the outdoor grill is available for use, and when you're in aruba, you want to be outside as much as possible anyway! Check in was seamless, and easy, Abigail greeted us at the gate, gave us our keys and asked if she could do anything else- we were beyond impressed. As the week went on, we utilized the outdoor space daily! There are kayaks you can borrow, you can swim directly off the dock in clear perfect water and the hot tub is the perfect escape if you get chilly swimming for a little while. I am very particular about the cleanliness of places I stay, and our quarters could not have been cleaner. It had everything we needed. The closet is spacious and accommodating with an ironing board and iron. More room than we needed for the 1 week we were there. The Bathroom was perfect and the walk in shower was just what we needed coming back from the beach or the dock. Abigail and her family were the most excellent hosts. Checking in on us, over providing before we even arrived with extra towels, beach chairs, and more! We messaged Abigail a couple of times with questions and recommendations, and she replied very quickly! The location is on the Southeast side of the Island, free of most tourists, quiet and abundant with restaurants, beaches and if you want to go to the more touristic areas, it won't take you more than 30 minutes to get there. There are 2 highly rated restaurants within walking distance of this airbnb: Zeerovers and The Flying Fishbone. Both incredible! We ate at Zerrovers twice and spent less than $30 on food and cocktails both times. I can't say enough good things about this stay! It was divine! I highly recommend it, when we go back, we won't even think about staying anywhere else!

    Elizabeth2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, quiet, clean and totally worth the money. Abigail is very responsive if you need anything. We definitely recommend this place! 😉👍

    Benjamin2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend this place. It is true to the photos and the family is wonderful.

He has been absolutely stunning from the beginning to the end with everything, from picking us up at the airport, quick replies and hospitality over expectations. Thank you once again Andres for EVERYTHING, you made our trip and lovely stay at the one happy island. Hope to see you again, much love.

    The apartment is nicely furnished and fully equipped. From the apartment you have a view of the swimming pool and the garden. There is a private terrace in front of the apartment. At the pool you can enjoy our shade or our sun terrace. The apartment is located in the south east of Aruba close to our national Parke Arikok. Boka Prins where you can Kite Surf and Baby Beach where you can snorkel are less than 10 minutes by car. Supermarkets are close by.
    The apartment is situated in a quiet area outside the tourist part of Aruba. Since we are surrounded by nature you can encounter other fauna such as birds and iguanas.
    The entrance to Park Arikok is a stone's throw away. Park Arikok has several attractions such as caves with Indian drawings, tunnel of love, natural pool, Boca Prince, Dos Playa and much more.
  • Simply the best Airbnb I've been too. It is located in a quiet area on the island. This is perfect if you want to relax and be away from the big hotels (I strongly suggest renting a car. It's a must on the island anyway if you want to move around, wherever you are). The backyard is amazing with different spots where you can sit in the day or at night with lights hanging from the trees. The swimming pool is great and cleaned daily by Carolien. It's a great spot to hang out. The apartment was incredible and incredibly clean. It made us feel at home instantly. You also have everything you need inside with a well equipped kitchen if you want to cook diners (but there are so many great restaurants on the island. Carolien and Patrick have wonderful recommendations). Also, Carolien was giving us new beach towels when needed without having to ask. To sum up, look no further if you want to relax in Aruba. THIS IS the PERFECT place for you ! Thank you so much Carolien and Patrick for your hospitality.

    Tanguy2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is immaculate. Super stylish and really cute little handmade touches. Very quick responses we had everything we needed! I recommend.

    Charlotte2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Carolien & Patrick were EXCELLENT hosts! The place was sparkling clean. They even supplied body wash, shampoo, conditioner,coffee, sugar.... beach chairs & a cooler! I DEFINITELY recommend this place & look forward to going back.

    Tricia2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay in the beautiful apartment of Carolien and Patrick. The apartment is tastefully decorated, very clean and fully equipped. We have received a warm welcome and our questions were answered quickly. Carolien and Patrick are pleasant and sweet people. We will definitely be back! In short, a must!

    Isabella2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful! My favourite airbnb experience yet. I made my own mistake of not having car during my stay on this side of Aruba, however Carolien and Patrick were amazing hosts and took me to the supermarket whenever I needed to. They were always checking up on me and making sure I had everything I needed. I didn’t explore during this part of my trip to Aruba due to transport, however I had some much needed rest and spent all of my time relaxing in the beautiful garden and pool. Thank you both so much!

    Lucy2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place for a comfortable and relaxing vacation! Carolien and Patrick are great hosts!

    Diego2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent B&B, far superior to what we expected. Location: Not in the tourist area so very calm. Close to some local groceries, baby beach and some adventure activities (kayak tours, hiking, etc.) Facility: One AC unit in the bedroom only. Can be a little hot in the living room but acceptable. Fully-equipped kitchen with most of the condiments. Have a small pool and a nice garden in the backyard. Nice touches: Beach towels, cooler, coffee and tea, small sweet treats The host is super charming and thoughtful. They even did some advanced groceries for us since we arrive on Christmas day. Great value for a stay on an expensive island!

    Baiyun2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Carolien and Patrick are very warm hosts. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. We were here at the end of our trip (Curaçao & Aruba) and stayed in a total of 4 accommodations. From pepper, salt and oil in the kitchen to shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, we also had enough toilet paper in the bathroom and more than enough towels and beach towels. The apartment and the garden have been prepared with great attention to detail. Here you live very quietly and can explore Aruba wonderfully with a rental car. We enjoyed lying by the pool after the beach visit or ending the evening in one of the illuminated sitting areas in the garden. Thank you very much for an unforgettable time in Aruba!

    Mangel Halto Beach is the hangout of the locals during the weekend and is definitely the new trendy hidden spot to travel to. This superb but yet affordable pool house (the cottage) is filled with soul, and is surrounded by a huge garden, a cool community, local joints, and comes with all the comfort of a boutique hotel. More practically, the location is central, it’s a true paradise for snorkeling and diving and it’s close to everything. Whatever you need, we provide it. This Aruba.
    The cottage has a spacious queen size bed, and has a day bed that can serve as a twin bed. The kitchen is fully equipped, and you have access to the villa's BBQ and palapa. You have access to the pool and you have your own private seating area and picnic table. When the gate is open, you can view the ocean from the cottage.
    There are no words to describe the vibe here. Here are a few : beauty, smiles, chill, peace.
  • The beachfront is spectacular and we certainly made much use of that incredible natural pool! The book of Aruba information with the cottage was super helpful in planning out our days. Rent a car (or Jeep!) to make the most of your time. Snorkelling is fantastic right in front of Windsong and the mangroves. We really could have used a broom to sweep up the cottage daily to help with keeping the sand down. We would stay again in a heart beat! Well worth the money (and driving everywhere)! Final point: Sophie and Gustavo were excellent communicators, making sure we were ok while there. You will not regret staying in this little “cottage”!

    Candice2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location right across the street from a popular beach.

    Joseph2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is one of the best place we’ve stayed in Aruba. First, the location cannot be topped. 10 minutes from anywhere on the island. From the studio and the picnic table we could see the ocean through a nice white gate. We did enjoy our morning coffee under the big mango tree with ocean view. And later we did take our drinks with us our feet in the sand as we went down the ladder and to the small beach literally right in front of the Windsong. The mangrove park right next to it is also gorgeous and we swam with our snorkeling gear to the shipwreck right in front of the property. We saw plenty of multicolored fish and the shipwreck was pretty cool to see. We ended up spending the whole day around the area. The cottage itself is the perfect size for 2 or a couple with a kid. The kitchen was clean and had everything we needed including a cooler for the beach and we did bbq outside at night. The owner told us that the bathroom has been renovated the week before arrive. It is cozy and very clean and EVERYTHING works pretty well ! The bed was super comfy with good sheets. And we did not hear any noise at night despite the fact there was a group next door. The place must be well soundproofed because we slept like babies until 10! We did not use the pool as we spent the day at the beach but next time we come back we will give it a try. And we’re definitely thinking about renting the villa with our family and friends next spring! Finally Sophie gave us the best suggestions and Gustavo made sure we were well taken care of, from booking to check out. See you again soon the Windsong team !

    Alessandra2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Windsong Mangel Beach. The space was enough for the two of us and the bed was really comfortable. Gustavo was very helpful with any questions, and the suggestions to use John for snorkel gear and Ivan for car rentals were good tips. We look forward to our next visit!

    Tammy2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! My husband and I stayed in the cottage at Windsong, at the back of the property. We had never stayed at an air bnb before, so I was a bit skeptical at first. Honestly, this place exceeded my expectations! From the moment that we arrived, we were greeted by Gustavo who was very friendly and accommodating. The check in process was quick and easy, and Gustavo was already waiting for us when we arrived. The cottage was squeaky clean and smelled wonderful when we walked through the door. I was also very surprised at how large the cottage actually was. It had a fully equipped kitchen, with all of the utensils and dishware needed to cook and prepare meals. The bathroom had a larger shower then I had expected, which was quite nice to relax in after a long day at the beach. As a bonus, the shower even had hot water, which from my understanding is rare in Aruba. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the television in the room had great movie channels too! The air conditioner at night was wonderful and kept the room extremely cold, which is exactly how I like it! The cottage was well stocked with everything you could possibly need from bath towels, pool towels, toilet paper, beach chairs and coolers, spices to cook with, and even a washing machine! The outside rinse station was also very much appreciated. We used it frequently to rinse off our feet, along with our scuba gear after diving. The location of this cottage could not be beat! It’s literally right across the street from one of the most beautiful and impressive beaches that we’d seen on the entire island, along with some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving. There is even a reef right off shore that you can swim to. Absolutely incredible!!! The grounds of this property were also fabulous, and extremely well kept. The pool was a great way to cool off during the day when we were not running around exploring the island. There were so many wonderful things about the cottage and its location. We also got a peek inside the Villa, as we ended up with an incredible neighbor staying in it while we were there. I think next time my husband and I are going to have to rent the villa! Though it’s too large for just the two of us, it was so beautiful I cannot pass up the opportunity to stay in it next time. Overall I would highly recommend the cottage, and if you can afford it, the Villa. For the accommodations, location and price, Windsong Villa and cottage cannot be beat! Sunshine, was an excellent host and extremely responsive to all of our questions. We will definitely be coming back to Windsong in the future! Thank you sunshine and Gustavo for an amazing stay!

    Carly2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible pool Haus , I loved my stay! My second trip here this year so I very highly recommend this listing to ALL :-) Mangel Halto Beach is just steps away and the most blu blue blue Azul ever going to infinite hues of pure wow to me blue & a crystal clear ocean. Staying here in Sunshines oceanfront Cottage was great with my friend Lily ... the cottage has everything you will need for an awesome Aruban vacation... then we got to upgrade into the Ultra Luxe “Windsong” Villa, it’s turnkey setup & super spectacular with unexpected amenities all around. I’m coming back!!! ;-)s My best tip to everyone is to book both the cottage & villa together with my friend & fellow Superhost Sunshine (Cheers always Sophie, Gustavo & Yanellie) and you can enjoy all of the pelicans, butterflies, flowers / pool / spa/ hammocks & that teak lounge chair WOW! Serenity it’s here...

    Steve2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Sunshine’s place was absolutely incredible. Not only is it located in an incredibly beautiful spot, just steps from the breathtakingly beautiful Spaans Lagoen beach, but the place itself was clean, well kept, well stocked, and perfectly private. Having the private pool right outside my door was an exceptionally luxurious piece of my trip. Everything was perfect and I would definitely stay there again! 5 stars.

    Daniel2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • We adored this place and the Mangel Halto area. One of the most beautiful beaches is just steps away from Windsong Villa. Our biggest regret was not staying longer. Sophie helped coordinate check in and we met Gustavo and his wife upon arrival. The space is gorgeous. We stayed in the neatly decorated guest house situated under a mango tree and next to the pool. Although our visit was short we were able to lounge in the sun. We dined at Flying Fishbone which was a 7 minute taxi ride (Guatavo was able to provide the number) and would highly recommend making reservations in advance. Bed was very comfortable and in the morning we walked down to a local neighbor John’s place and he let us rent snorkel equipment for the hour (he also provides tours). Cannot wait to return to Windsong Villa! Much more of a local feel and would highly recommend!

    Centrally located on the island, nestled in the hills of Bringamosa, most guest like trying a different beach everyday. You are anywhere from 5 to a maximum 20 minutes from all the beaches and only 2 minutes away from national arikok park and it's famous Natural Pool. The street is a cul de sac with less than 10 houses on it. The no traffic is one of our features that comes with the natural allure.
  • John's place was a newer built one bedroom/ studio style condo centrally located in the middle of Aruba. It was just as nice as everyone previously mention in their reviews. I would definitely recommend his place for those on a budget still want a nice place to stay. One unique thing that really stood out to me every morning when i awoke was that the only noise i heard was the bus singing.

    Marc2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • John's place was absolutely amazing. We arrived easily with the included car rental which was fantastic to have. Audrey greeted us at the airport with a sign and brought us back. Walked into cheese and wine and a fridge full of food. I've never had such an amazing experience with Airbnb. She gave us lots of recommendations and tips. The property was awesome and Divi the dog is so sweet, along with the beautiful kitty that hung with us. The pool was great, the location is a bit off the beaten path, but so quiet and nice. Nothing but nature! Everyone was super friendly, the home had everything you. Would possibly need. Absolutely recommend going on an ATV excursion also. AGW was amazing ask for Leroy. Our wedding anniversary was just amazing and we are so glad we got to stay here. We would go back again. Aruba is a beautiful unique place and for our first trip we are glad we chose John's place!

    Amanda2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described, but so much more. We enjoyed our stay so much. The casita was clean and cute. Stocked with wonderful foods, beer and wine. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the pool was nice and relaxing as well. If you’re looking for a nice, quiet vacation this is the place. Having a rental car is a plus as it’s about a 20 min drive to Palm beach. It’s easy to get around the island and everyone is so friendly. I highly recommend staying with John and Nancy. Divi their dog is a sweetheart too. Can’t wait to come back! I ❤️Aruba

  • I honestly could go on and on about how incredible our time was at John's place, it was seriously that good. The responsiveness and attention to detail from our hosts was exceptional. The place was sparkling clean, and with a rental car included, everything was a quick 10-15 mins away, but yet still had the peacefulness of not being in the touristy part of the island. This was our first time in Aruba, but John and Audrey treated us like we were family. They gave us everything we needed, and did so much to ensure our stay was perfect. Beer, eggs, bread, orange juice etc all stocked in the fridge...yet another delightful touch by the hosts. Again, I have nothing but amazing things to say about this experience....we've already recommended to friends and family, and hopefully we'll be back one day soon!! :-)

  • The only surprises you'll find with this listing is how well taken care of you are by all involved. The owners are very attentive to any issue that may arise. The caretakers, Audrey and Greg will make you very welcome and be there for any of your needs. When we first arrived, we thought the place wasn't going to work out because of location. What we soon discovered was just the opposite. We were frequent fliers to the Noord area. What we discovered was we were so centrally located that we were able to go all over the island in a short time. Baby Beach was as close as the light house. The airport was even closer. Fact is the island is so small that you can be most anywhere you wish to be within 10 to 30 minutes. What a $avings having car rental included and breakfast. $ave even more have all the extras supplied from trash bags to paper towels to condiments. The best recommendation I can give is the fact that we extended our stay in another unit on premises. And then we booked again for end of March. That's how much we loved it. We plan to visit this place every year until we have our own place in Aruba.

    Laurence2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • As expected and more! We were greeted at the airport and transported to the car rental place then followed our hosts home. It was a little slice of heaven! We had more than enough food for breakfast ice available for the cooler. Being away from the main crowds allowed us to really relax. I highly recommend visiting the local donkey sanctuary that is close by, it was unforgettable. We would love to stay again!

    Jennifer2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best time at John's place. Santa Cruz is a nice local area away from the major resorts but close enough to get anywhere in the island within a half hour or less (especially with the rental car that was included) The Casita was sparkling clean with many thoughtful touches like breakfast foods and local beer. He gave us some recommendations for where to go for dinner. We would definitely go back again.

    Hollie2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • This AirBnb was 10/10. It was a perfect place for a couple that’s looking to see all of Aruba. We were given a car right from the airport which was much needed because we were able to get wherever we wanted very easily. (You can get anywhere within 20 mins or less). Our casita was very clean, fully stocked with breakfast foods, beer and snacks, and came with beach chairs and snorkeling gear. The air conditioning was a necessity and the scenery around the casita was beautiful. John and Audrey were extremely helpful and answered our messages within minutes. Divi (the dog) was adorable and we loved her morning greetings. I would 100% come back here and will recommend this to all of my family and friends. The only suggestion I could think of is including is an umbrella for the beach!!!

  • Andres's place was as-described with a great location and excellent value. The best part of staying here was the host's balance of interaction and privacy. Nice job, Andres.

    Genevieve2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Location and lots of privacy

    Álvaro2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in Andres' studio suite on my 3rd and 4th nights in Aruba. This review is a direct comparison between Andres' space/hospitality, vs. the Airbnb where I spent my first 2 nights ("Modern Nature Getaway Apartment near Baby Beach" in San Nicolas, hosted by Peter). Andres' Airbnb cost me *less than half as much* as Peter's did, for almost identical accommodations--a detached studio apartment with modern design, air conditioning, wifi, television, small refrigerator, microwave, etc. Andres' space was superior to Peter's in several vital ways--the bed was larger and more comfortable, all of the sink fixtures were in working condition (not so at Peter's), and Andres' towels were clean and fresh, whereas the ones Peter provided were torn and musty-smelling. Andres' hospitality was far and away better than Peter's; Andres was very friendly and genuine, giving me a tour of the neighborhood to point out the nearest grocery store, bus stop, beach, and landmarks to make my stay easier. In contrast, Peter was *hostile* toward me and made me want to cry, and I was left to my own devices in a highly isolated area of the island once he had received his $15 USD reimbursement for my ride from the airport. There are very few food options on Peter's end of the island, but there were two grocery stores quite close to Andres'. I was traveling alone without a car, and I found Andres' place to be very well-located for catching frequent buses in either direction and also walking to Mangel Halto Beach. (Although Peter's place was somewhat near Baby Beach, the bus was not scheduled to come very often and it involved a confusing transfer in the little town San Nicolas over 2 miles north of the studio to get anywhere at all. Thankfully, friendly locals helped me along the way; without them I would have been stranded!) Andres' neighborhood as a whole was well-kept with colorful little homes and I felt very safe there (again, a woman traveling solo), whereas Peter's was situated in area where almost all of the houses were abandoned with fallen-in roofs and multiple malnourished stray dogs roaming the streets. There weren't stray dogs tugging at my heart strings at Andres' at all. Andres' place was remarkably quiet for how convenient it was to the main highway. Thank you again, Andres, for a great Aruban experience!

    Kat2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, spacious home that is in walking distance to Mangel Halto, the most gorgeous beach with great snorkeling! I had many great sleeps in the comfortable bed. Thanks for sharing your home with me, Andres!

    Shirley2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Andres's place is probably the best value on the island! Be realistic about your expectations (if you're looking for luxury amenities, this is not the place for you) and rent a car. The place was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower had great water pressure! Aruba is a small island so nothing was more than a 15-20 minute car ride away. Andres was a wonderful host and communication was quick! We hope to return next year :)

    Natasha2020-01-16T00:00:00Z

  • The Apartment was amazing :) It was one of the best apartments we ever had! Would stay there again! Super chic, totally new, clean and everything you Need! Thank you Maud for everything! :) You need a car, if you stay there, but anyways a car on aruba is a must to see everything :)

    Nicole2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Maud was very communicative from the day prior to our arrival to the day we left. The location was very quiet and secure. The buildings are white and stay that way due to an obvious initiative to keep it clean. Maud was very friendly and hospitable and even washed and folded our clothes when we found that there was no washer and dryer available. Staying there was very "homey".

    Chris2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Maud's place is amazing. The apartment was clean, with a good layout. It is new and modern. The pool area was perfect. It is easy to get to and safe. A rental car is necessary. Our trip was fantastic because Maud is amazing. Stay here!

  • Andres is a top host. Helped me with getting from and to the airport. Helped with a car rental, buggy rental and local tips. Andres is very friendly and a person you should hang out. The apartment itself was very good value for money. It wasn't very big but it was clean, modern and it had everything necessary and the price for it is very good compared to the other apartments/houses in Aruba. If you are looking for good place to stay, don't hesitate and book this apartment!

  • Good small and clean appartement. Basic kitchen but with pretty much all you need. Andres is an amazing host and communication was easy. Located near two little market. You need a car on that island and Andres can help you with that.

    Audrey2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • I had such a awesome time with Andres, his family and friends were wonderful as well. Room was basic, clean, cool and close to the beach !! Perfect for a week stay at a great price. I would recommend getting a car for this area (there are some cheap options), and Andres can help with that if you need it. Baby beach is only a beautiful 15 min drive away which is nice, and your about the same distance from a bustling downtown strip too. Bus routes close by as well if that's your jam. There's also a little grocery store 2mins away on foot, great for last minute eats and beer runs :) I recommend this place for sure. Thanks again Andres, hope to see you in the near future !!!!!!!

    My colorful, comfortable, beautiful bachelor apartment is away from high rise hotels. If you want to have a real island experience, this is the place to be, at the other side of the island, in San Nicolas. The beaches are only 8 - 10 minutes away.
    My apartment can accommodate two people comfortably. What makes my listing unique is that it is so un-touristy. I am aware that nowadays people want to experience the real thing. People want a real connection with the culture and its people when they travel. My place is right smack in the center of San Nicolas, which has a rich history going back to the coming of the oil refinery, over 60 years ago, where more than 90 nationalities, 9000 employees, came to work here and lived together in harmony and created the birth place of Carnival in Aruba, the steel pan, and calypso music, which originated from Trinidad and Tobago.
    I like that we have good neighbors for decades. We share lots of memories growing up. Many left to live abroad and yet picked up where we left off years later. We have become like family. We get together on special occasions but at the same time respect each other's privacy. I like the feeling of home and feeling safe.
  • Go. Enjoy. Live. Create a beautiful memory!!

    Michael2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • A visit to Emerita's apartments is like visiting family friends. Emerita is the perfect hostess - friendly, fun, knowledgeable about the 'Happy Island', and the apartment we stayed in offered everything we needed to relax and hang out in the lovely outdoor living room, cook in the functional and well stocked kitchen. (And, by the way, thanks especially for the fruit and veggie, juice and snack foods - all Vegan. So appreciated!!) Emerita invited us to join her large and lovely extended family for Christmas dinner on the beach. We'll never forget it! Barefoot Beach. Fantastic. And thanks too, for taking us on the Christmas lights tour - spectacular display on the old castle. Being able to rent your brother's car enabled us to travel the island, and end up on Baby Beach every day - a heavenly place and now our favourite beach in the world. We can't say enough about the hospitality and good cheer we experienced at Emerita's and in Aruba. We'll be back - with more family members. Emerita is a Super Host for good reason. She is truly a super special person. Thanks, Emerita for a vacation we'll remember with love, forever!

    Jackie2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful start to my Aruba trip! As noted in previous reviews, the suite was very clean, well equipped and stylish. I appreciated the milk, bread, fruit, coffee and tea that were supplied. And the welcome drink! This is a very comfortable and safe space for solo women travellers. A rental car is not absolutely necessary as rides were kindly offered and there is a public transit system (as long as you are not in a hurry). Emerita is an extremely gregarious host who will not hesitate to share stories of growing up in Aruba and her more recent life in Toronto. She is genuinely warm and welcoming, as were her parents. I was glad to spend a few days away from the hotel zone and this suite is well located to explore the south half of the island: Baby Beach, local family-owned restaurants, and the famous Zeerovers. I am happy to recommend Emerita's to other Airbnbers looking for the 'real Aruba'.

    Valerie2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • The studio was very nice and stylish! A very cute space with lots of amazing art work~ our host Emerita is very welcoming and personable. We really enjoyed her hospitality!

    Sunny2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • The space was cute and there were a lot of cute touches. There were chocolates for us when we arrived. There was private parking and the outdoor seating space was nice. I would recommend getting a rental car if staying in this area.

    Destiny2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Eremerita’s home is absolutely amazing. The outdoor area is the most beautiful place to relax and spend time during the day and night. Sitting in the hammock is so relaxing I could have fallen asleep in there. She has thoughtful touches all over the home that make it so wonderful to stay in. The indoor area is spotlessly clean and put together in the most lovely way, with all of the things you might need for a beach day or an indoor day. By far one of the best air bnb experiences I have had. I would absolutely come again and I would highly highly reccomended it to anyone looking to stay in Aruba !!

    Elena2019-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Emerita was wonderful! The entire place is stocked with helpful little touches (band aids, seasonings, etc). The backyard is delightful! Emerita went so far as to drive us to the beach when the buses weren’t running and was pleasant conversation. The one thing I would note is that despite being in a private apartment, there are several screens with no covers that take away from the privacy of the place! It was an awesome experience anyway though!

    Isabelle2019-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Emeritas place is as described. If you want a place to call home away from home this is the right place to stay. There is loads of place to relax in the evening either you are a sofa person or hammock person. If you wanna have a warm shower outside after a long day at the beach this is also amazing ! Emeritas place is a close drive to baby beach and rogers beach with its nice shallow waters. There is also Mangel Halto if you wanna spend the day looking at fish and have some lunch at Zeerovers. All in all a fantastic experience. We were lucky enough to be there during carnival so we got to see how lively and amazing Aruba becomes :-) :-)

  • Jane & Jamie’s place was an excellent location. Not only is it close to palm beach(walking distance), a really nice beach, it’s close to many of the resorts and casinos-plenty of shopping and gambling. Also, Jamie was very helpful with suggesting fun things to do. Anytime I travel to a country I like to submerge myself with the locals. Jane & Jamie’s place allows one to do just that while feeling safe. Overall I had a great time at their place.

  • Jane and Haime's place is perfect for those wanting to relax in a peaceful surrounding yet close to wherever you want to be. There is a beach and a few bars/restaurants a short walk away. Plenty of parking for a rental car, which is certainly recommended to see the beauty of this island. Haime arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, for a small fee, gave us a quick tour of the immediate surroundings, beaches, shops, market, laundry etc. The room was comfortable, private and pleasant. I will book Jane and Haime's place when I return to Aruba.

    Dan2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • A place perfect for our vacation needs! Jane picked us up from the airport and gave us a quick tour. Once we arrived she let us choose from 3 different units that were available, which was awesome! We loved our little kitchenette to make some quick meals too. A small grocery store was a short walk away and the beach as well. They brought us extra towels when we asked. Very accommodating!

    Hannah2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

    Explore the wonders of Aruba, staying right on the most preserved beach in Aruba. Our lovely apartment gives you the true Caribbean experience. waking up to the ocean washing up on the rocks just waiting for you to plunch in and start your adventure. This is a very cute heavenly room. Literally wake up to the nicest beach on the island. Enjoy your stay in this perfect beach room.
    The beach right in front has the most clearest shades of blue waters. It has been rated the number 1 beach in Aruba and has been mentioned in many articles around the world. It is a preserved beach due to the mangroves on the right where the beach starts which means they really take very good care of the flora and fauna making it the best snorkeling and diving spot. It also has a shipwreck that you can go explore. We have added pictures of the shipwreck in our photos. Remember this is all right outside your place. We offer some really nice tours like snorkeling, clear kayaking and more. You can ask about these upon arrival.
  • My boyfriend and I wanted to experience the quieter part of the island and this was the perfect spot for it. It is in a little area with not much close by so we would recommend renting a car. The view of the water is unbeatable. We definitely recommend renting John’s snorkeling gear. We saw the most amazing fish/coral/urchins, the colors were indescribable. The coffee in the morning was also a very welcome touch!

    Brigid2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Farrah2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Marie and John were nothing short of incredible. From providing much needed nail polish remover to antibiotic cream for a healing cut, Marie makes you feel at home and welcome at all times. I highly recommended asking for John’s coffee. I’ve never tasted a better cup, and he even adds a Colombian touch that will make mornings that much more enjoyable. Be sure to stop at Tia Rosas for a empanadas and patacon. We may have gone there almost EVERY day. Also, Marina Pirata is hands down the best food in Saveneta. Ask for George, tell him Krissy and Scott miss him dearly. DO THE SNORKEL TOUR WITH JOHN. Just do it. He is an incredible host and know where to go for the best underwater sights. The local cats and dogs are super friendly, Gypsy and Dingo being our favorites. The rooms are small guys, but honestly we only slept in them. We even used the outside shower more than the inside (partly due to chilly water, but we were in Aruba so WHO CARES?) Flamingo island is cool, but not worth the $$. We enjoyed snorkeling by the Renaissance hotel lagoon more, where we saw a sea turtle and a huge rock crab. NOTHING beats the view at John and Marie’s. Do self guided tours with the UTV. Go left in the National park first to see the natural pool and then back to dos playas, ps you can’t swim at dos playas... wish we had known that. Don’t bother with the natural bridge it’s broken, there is one on your way however that is intact. BABY BEACH! Beautiful! O’Niels Caribbean food, great food meh service.... hit the local pastry shop down the street for fresh goodies. We had a lovely time and met some lovely people! We will miss you Pete, Katie, Elis, Steven, Matt and Lynn’s beautiful family, Joe and Erin, and of course the lovely John and Marie. Ohhhhh but you’re alcohol when you land in Aruba... wayyyy cheaper. Have a blast! Until next time 🥰✌🏼

    Crystalynn2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This flat is very small but big enough for two people also for more than a week! The place is lovely, and the host is very kind , helpful and relaxed! We really enjoyed it and will come back !

    Karin2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • The location (proximity to the beach) and safety was a real plus. However, the highlight was the attention, service and hospitality of John the property manager. His morning coffee will be missed.

  • Staying in the middle of the island with a rental car was a dream! We are at the casita each morning then set off on an adventure. We were inspired to see the whole island; we would not have had this opportunity staying in the high rises. Aside from the location, the house is beautiful! If you don’t want to go out, you have everything you need for a relaxing vacation. There are so many thoughtful touches. From the cheese tray to the book of advice, everything was perfect.

  • John and Audrey are absolutely awesome hosts The casita was everything shown on the post We were greeted by Audrey at the airport and brought to the car rental We arrived to a “feast” of breakfast items, wine cheese/crackers and beer. They kept us stocked up on fruit and breakfast items for our entire stay We had help with a Jeep rental and John mapped out our course which made for an awesome day at the national park and all the attractions The casita is not on the main beach and nightlife but you are a 10-15 minute drive from all of it—it was so peaceful to come back after a full day of excursions and chill by the pool before relaxing for the evening We did enjoy having a full kitchen ( and outdoor grill) to cook our meals when we didn’t feel like eating out This place is beyond worth the value $ thanks again for the great hospitality!!!

  • I cannot begin to explain how much my husband and I LOVED our stay at John’s place. From being picked up at the airport to all of the amazing amenities, included car rental and the tips John had to offer, it was by far the most amazing AirBnB experience we have had so far. We really appreciated all the breakfast food items that were provided for us as we cooked 6 out of the 7 days we stayed. It was great to not have to spend time deciding where to eat every day. Also - John recommends only going to Super Food Plaza. We made the mistake of going to another market the first day because we needed something and Super food was closed and we completely regretted it once we went to Super Food a few days later. Its the only grocery store worth going to. Products are fresh and it’s just a nice store. Its not far from John’s and close to Eagle Beach. John helped us book excursions and he is so knowledgeable about what to do and where to go on the island. John’s place is in the middle of the island and most beaches are only a 15-20 minute drive from his place. It’s worth noting that Baby Beach is definitely worth paying a visit. The water is much more calm there and if you don’t like much of a crowd, it’s definitely not as crowded as Eagle or Palm beach. Watching the sunset there with the chairs John provided was one of my top favorite memories. Just a future tip - if you are looking for some Colombian food, we went to a place called los Cafeteros twice and it was awesome. Prices are GREAT and you get a lot of good food for the price. It’s about a 10 minute drive from John’s. I could go on and on but I’ll finish up by saying you won’t regret staying here. You truly do get your money’s worth and we are most definitely going to come back here. John, Nancy, Audrey and Divi (the friendliest dog we’ve ever met) made this trip even more incredible than we could have ever imagined.

  • John was great! All of his suggestions of where to go in the national park, where to eat, and beaches to go to were awesome! His place was very private and a nice, quiet setting. The breakfast food, beer, and wine was a nice welcome and surprise. The car rental included was a nice, huge bonus to renting the place. John was great at lining everything up for us with Jeep rental for the national park and a yacht cruise and snorkeling which were amazing adventures. We would definitely stay at Johns if we come back to Aruba some day.

  • There are not enough stars to rate our experience at John’s BnB. Highlights from our trip included the convenient pick up service from the airport to the car rental. Then a wonderful welcome to the BnB by their sweet dog, Divi. My husband and we’re blown away with the amenities they provided for our home away from home stay. We loved the quiet local living. John’s coffee while watching the sunrise by the pool and watching the moonrise with a glass of wine on the hammock were probably our favorite parts of our stay. Next to our daily greetings from Divi of course! We loved Baby Beach only a few minutes away and amazing local lunch at Kamini’s! Looking forward to next year!

  • AMAZING! John was the perfect host. He knew of all the best spots to eat. Place was super cozy. From the pick up, car rental and departure, everything ran smoothly. Definitely will be back.

  • We had a great experience in Aruba.John and Nancy are very helpful, and full of knowledge about the island. They gave us great suggestions on where to eat(definitely check out Zeerovers) and different ways to see the sites without going the commercial route. Not being right on the beach was a concern for us but we got to go to a different beach every day,and having a rental car made it so we could explore more of the island. It was definitely more of an experience instead of a typical beach vacation, and we are already planning our return. It was wonderful having food, beer and wine when we got there so we didn’t have to hurry and go to the grocery. The grocery store there is very nice so if you want to cook/grill and just hang out at the casita you can. We had no problem getting around the island, Audrey picked us up at the airport and took us to our rental car and we followed her to the casita. I highly recommend a stay here! (On a side note, there dog Divi is awesome and I miss her☺️)

    The house is situated in Seroe Colorado, close to Baby Beach, Rodgers Beach and Boca Grandi. Enjoy cool breeze and panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea from the coral hilltops at this private and relaxing sea front row property in Aruba.
    One of the very few ocean front row rental properties in Aruba. This original, three bedroom 'Colony' house is located in a quiet and friendly residential neighborhood, next to several beaches. All of these white sand beaches are a 2-3 minute walk from the front gate. You will enjoy panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea and the beautiful Aruban skies and sunsets. The large outdoor patio has a comfortable seating area, dining area, BBQ and sunbeds; creating an additional outdoor living space. The house is equipped with modern and comfortable amenities creating a cozy atmosphere--the only thing you will need are your suitcases. Let us take care of the rest!
    Seroe Colorado is a community located on the most south eastern point of Aruba, the location for one of Aruba’s most popular beaches-Baby Beach. Seroe Colorado is a sleeping beauty when it comes to beach front real estate on Aruba. The houses are built on coral hilltops, like this property, with a view overlooking the Caribbean Sea. These jewels are being brought back to the former glory.
  • The Famous Baby Beach House was everything we expected! The house is wonderful, clean, well supplied and in the perfect location for what we wanted. When we go on vacation we want to be in a place that allows us to see what life in that location is really like. This house gives you that experience. It's away from the giant, Americanized resorts and cheesy bars/restaurants. It's quiet and right on the best beach for little kids. We ate a couple meals in San Nicolas (Saco di Felipe and O'neil's) which were both fantastic. The grocery stores are within 5-10 minutes by car. Martha was great as well. She was at the house to greet us, even though it was very late at night. She gave us some quick, basic information to get settled in, then came back the next morning to go over everything in detail. We were there at an exceptionally hot time, so the living room was a bit warm during the day and we didn't spend much time there, but the covered patio was great and the kitchen gets a great cross breeze. With all the windows open, they place cooled down enough in the evening to be comfortable. We had to run the AC units at night and they worked perfectly. If you want to get away from tourism and have a peaceful beach vacation, this is a great house!

  • Beautiful place, perfect for our needs. Lovely furnishings and amenities.

    William2018-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This home is located at the south end near baby beach. It is not a beach front home, it is an ocean view home. The neighborhood does have some rundown and even abandoned homes. But the home is very nice. It was really clean and decorated nicely. It also has all the little extras that make the home really great. All of your paper goods are supplied as well as beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, bug spray, shampoo, body wash laundry and dish detergent, good Wi-Fi, a cell phone for local calls and a really great outdoor living space with an ocean view. The snorkeling at Baby Beach was the best on the island, and Jads dive center was really great to work with for scuba diving. Both of those places are a three minute drive, but too far to walk carrying beach gear and scuba gear. Martha was very nice and helpful. Jayck gave me good information whenever I needed it. If you want to be near the hotels and the shopping in the city, it’s about a 30 minute drive.

  • The place is utterly the gem of the island. It is located in a very quiet area of the island, with easy access to the sea (two beaches are within a 10-minute relaxing walk) and within 10-15 minute drive to a number of supermarkets (we shopped at Superfood which is the shop that seems to offer the best quality of food on island). The house is equipped with all necessary items for a relaxing and pleasant holiday. The design of the living room and the bathrooms is very tasteful and elegant. Bedroom and showers were clean, while the kitchen was fully stocked up for cooking. The communication with Jacek and Martha was very easy, and both were available to address any issues. Without doubt I recommend this place for a relaxing stay.

  • We had a family reunion/holiday at the Baby Beach house in Aruba. It was absolutely wonderful. We spent 8 nights and days and couldn't have asked for a better home. The view from the patio / backyard is breathtaking and such a joy to wake up to every morning. We had our morning breakfast overlooking the turqouise waters which is the same view from the living room and the smaller room (with the twin beds). It's a very large house and the 6 adults and one two-year old were very comfortable. The house is a short jog (15 mins) or a ride (3 mins) from the beach. We spent most of the time at Baby Beach but Rogers Beach is just a short 5 minute walk away. It's close to Colorado point so the change in terrain allows for a nice change of scenery if people are up for that. The house has all the modern amenities and yet the beach-cabin charm we wanted. We were greeted by the property managers who gave us a thorough run-down of the house, beaches, tourist attractions, local events, restaurants and Aruba in general - they were also available at a moments notice when we called them using the local cellphone provided. Given that the house is slightly farther from "downtown" (30 minute drive), we rented a car and enjoyed the local attractions during the day and came back to a relaxing and tourist free home at night. The grocery stores nearby are reasonably priced so we didn't end up eating out too much either. One of the highlights of this trip was to be able to fall sleep to the sounds of swishing palm trees and the rolling waves. My brother-in-law put it best - "This trip is one for the books" - I'd have to agree that not only was visiting Aruba amazing it was doubly wonderful that we could do it as a family under one roof in a home rather than as customers of a hotel. Thank you Jacek, Martha and Steve.

    The house with studio is located in the Jamanota area, adjacent to Arikok national park. The studio has his own entry so you will have all the privacy you need during your stay. Also a wonderful terrace with bbq and relaxing chairs to enjoy the wonderful view during breakfast or a sunset wine. In front you will have a nice area with a hammock and space to do your morning Yoga if wanted, surrounded with amazing palmtrees and green this spot will releave all stress and tension right away. .
    The studio is equipped with airconditioning, king size bed, bathroom, small kitchen with electric stove, fridge, tea and coffee and of course a welcome bottle to make you feel right at home. On the property there is a big house and next to it the studio. It is build in a way that you are separated from the house which means you have your own entrance and privacy. The house next to the studio has a wonderful pool with stunning view which can be utilized.
    If you are looking for a peaceful stay in Aruba, this is the place to be! Located in the middle of Aruba you will find the highest mountain called the Jamanota. The Jamanota is located in the middle of Arikok national park (your backyard!). This park covers 20% of Aruba and is full of birds and amazing flora. Hiking or biking will make your holiday unforgettable. This area is filled with nature and all sorts of wildlife which will give your stay the ultimate feeling of freedom. In Savaneta which is where Mago Halto is located you have our two best fish restaurants called ‘’Zeerover’’ and “Flying fishbone’’, These are a must visit. Zeerover will give you the real experience of fresh fish caught that same day. Flying fishbone is a little bit more pricy but worth it. Driving a little bit more you will reach the old art town San Nicolaas, here you will feel the real tropical side of Aruba with great restaurants and bars to have a good night out. Would you decide to see the other side of Aruba it takes a 20 minute drive to get there. Here you have the beautiful beaches, the lighthouse and also the the high rise hotels located on the strip with many different restaurants and our three main clubs: ‘Gusto’’, ‘’Sandbar’’ and ‘’Soul Beach’’. As mentioned above if you rent this appartment you would have to rent a car.
  • You can expect the cutest animals, lovely kind owners, and the best views in Aruba! We definitely recommend this place to others!

    Brett2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to experience south end of the island, but central to everything. Loved morning hikes in Arikok Park. Baby Beach in the shade of the trees was one of our favorites. Really enjoyed the daily fresh eggs.

    Anne2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Myrthe and Edwards place shows pride of ownership. They were extremely accommodating to any request or advice on places to see/things to do. The location was quiet, private and central to the island so getting everywhere didn’t take too long. Mangel halto beach 7 minutes away and was a fantastic snorkel spot. Highly suggested to rent a car in Aruba anywhere you stay really to get the best experience, we downloaded an app called map.me which was great for directions without using data. Place was clean, a/c worked great, kitchen was perfect for what we needed, outdoor lights romantic, and neighbourhood dogs friendly. Highly recommend booking their place, pictures don’t to it justice.

    Crystal2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Hi, this was our first time in Aruba. We are not resort or casino people nor do we enjoy vacationing with tons of tourists. We like serenity and this was it. This was also our first time at an Airbnb, and the pictures do it no justice, its so much prettier in person. If you would like a quiet place surrounded by 🌵 and nature this is the place for you. It is in the hills of the island so you definitely need a car. Its very safe and Flitz (the pup) and the chickens will welcome you every morning. Rent a car, explore the island and come home to a great place to take a dip in the pool and relax.

    Janice2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • From super friendly people and a great property! Always available to answer the question where glitches. Very clean place perfect for a couple or single person. The view from the pool is beautiful and the air is outside too. People who prefer to relax have moments at a less touristy place these super!
