  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!!!

  • Beautiful location, very peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the morning with the beautiful breeze, and lounging by the pool in the afternoons. Mayra is a wonderful host, very helpful and responsive. Must have a car because of the location, obviously, but everything is fairly close. We particularly enjoyed Baby Beach, about 30 minutes away. Pets are very friendly, and most of them won't bother you, but Cinderella the black cat feels she owns the place, so if you don't like cats, you might want to reconsider.... We would definitely come back!

    James2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing. You will not want to leave because you have everything and more! We are return visitors and have stayed in both the big house and the smaller one on this property.Both offer complete privacy and you are unable to hear noise from any of your neighbors. The property backed up to Arikok National Park and it is scenic and very quiet. The owners left a guide that answers everything, tells you the names of their friendly animals and gives you recommendations for things you’d only know if you were a local. The pool and home are clean, beautiful and well-maintained and there are a lot of amazing and interesting aspects. There is gorgeous hand-tiled mosaic both in the pool and throughout the property that was completed by the owners. The property is lush and tropical. The owners take great pride in their property and it shows. Areas were freshly painted and everything was very clean. It felt like we were home when we arrived. I cannot express how completely wonderful our experience has been with both the owners and the property on both occasions that we have visited. This was the best vacation of our lives. We were happy to bring our family this time and show them Aruba and why we love it. It would have never been the same if we had stayed anywhere else. We hope to return someday. Book it before someone else does! You will not regret it!

    Kristan2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Mayra’s place is as described. A beautiful Oasis. If you’re the type of person who looks at the negatives then it might not be for you. There are mosquitos, the pets can be annoying, it is a little hard to find if you’re not good with directions and it is located in an area of the island away from “civilization” a.k.a the hotel area. Now having said that — we found our stay to be very delightful. We had our kids with us (1 and 3 years old) and they had a blast. They loved playing with the pets (both the cats and dogs) and were very fascinated by the parrot. They enjoyed the swimming pool although it s quite deep and attention was needed at all times. It was well kept and the water was clean. The beautiful open kitchen allowed for us to cook their meals as well as prepare sandwiches we took to the beach during the day. The garden were very enjoyable and well kept as well. One could enjoy a sunset and star gazing in the evenings. The house if very spacious, well designed with beautiful touches. The fact that it is right in the middle of the island allows you to fully explore its beaches as well as its national park. Mayra was very responsive and accommodating to all our requests. I highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back.

  • This is a great place to stay in Aruba! It is quiet, intentionally landscaped to have great shade and privacy, and had a great kitchen. The pool is so refreshing and well shaded! We had great neighbors who were also tenants of Mayra. Mayra was an excellent host, very responsive to any questions. I’m a huge animal lover and I always feel safe with dogs and cats around, it was very homey! Cinder, the all black cat, was the sweetest cat you’ll ever meet. I miss her already! Mayra has a great book in the homes with tips about the island! Tres Trapi near Malmok Beach was great for snorkeling, and they had plenty of masks, snorkels, and 3 sets of flippers! We even saw sea turtles on two occasions! From our experience, the back way into the park was not possible, gates and guards redirected to the visitor center of the National park. It’s possible to see most of the park in one day if you don’t do any of the hiking. I would recommend you budget for at least two days in the park, it was beautiful and so worth it! We tried to hike to the natural pool but I ended overheating and we turned around it isn’t a long hike (2.1 or 2.4 miles one way) from inside the park, but quite rocky and hilly. I’d recommend lots of water, sunscreen, and light colored clothing. It rained several times while we were in Aruba and the gnats were out, we did out best to keep everything clean and put up, but they persisted during the day. In the evenings they seemed to lessen significantly so dinner on the patio was very pleasant! Would absolutely recommend and stay again when we head back to Aruba!

    Jennifer2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • 10/10 would recommend this place!! It's seriously so magical - the patio is amazing and the openness of the house is spectacular. We had breakfast and dinner on the patio every night and had the best views of the Aruban sunsets!! The pool and pool deck are so well maintained and an amazing spot to layout and read! The animals are so friendly and made the place feel like home! Mayra provided so many local tips for the best places to visit and restaurants in the area. Her communication before and during the stay were amazing. It's 10 minutes drive to the closest beach just down the hill! She also provides snorkeling equipment and fins as well as beach chairs! Thank you so much Mayra for you amazing hospitality. My family and I had an amazing time and would come here again and again!

    Laura2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this place and as many have stated before, the pictures don’t do it justice! A quick drive to the southern beaches and maybe 20 mins max from the northern ones. We loved being up on the hill and saw some amazing sunsets. Plus the pets were such a huge bonus as we missed our own fur babies at home. We fell in love with them! The pool and the ambience around it day or night was serene and tranquil. Mayra was always quick with responses and Cecilia, the house manager, was so helpful with any of our needs. Thank you so much again for such a beautiful introduction to the Caribbean and we hope to be back soon!!

    Chelsea2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Pictures do NOT do this place justice. Absolutely stunning villa. The inside is just as good as the outside. Very thoughtful hosts left us with a guide of Aruba, detailed with everything for everyone. Outside area was something out of a movie, gorgeous, clean and spacious. The rooms and washrooms were all amazing, very very clean. Animals around the property are well behaved and fun to have. Most things are 10 minute drive or less - best views of the island are right in your backyard with the national park 2 minutes from the villa. This is truly nature’s paradise villa to stay in. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to enjoy an amazing stay and island.

    Bianca2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place! A beautiful open floorplan that makes you feel at home on a tropical island. The pool is refreshing, the pets are adorable and friendly, and the hosts are wonderful! You'll spend your mornings with coffee on the huge wraparound porch not wanting to leave! I will definitely be back!

    Mount Jamanota, Aruba

    Yellow Escape, your unique Vacation Home in Aruba! Our two bedroom home is warm and welcoming. It comfortably sleeps 6 persons and is centrally located in a quiet, peaceful and surrounded by nature. We are only 10-15 minutes from the white sandy beaches!
    You can immediately feel the peacefulness, enjoy the nature and quietness of the area. The back patio is very cosy, and you can bird watch from it.
    The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. Neighbors are very friendly.
  • This is a lovely home - we loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the view and listening to the birds. The pool is perfect for cooling off - always an ideal temperature. The sky at night was breathtaking. The house has everything that you need- the air conditioning worked great as did the tv and other appliances. Roxanne was a wonderful host - always available if you needed her. She kept us informed of the ever changing corona virus situation from an Aruban perspective. Special thanks to the pool and housekeeping staff for keeping things super clean and maintained. We would highly recommend this home!

    Debbie2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Yellow Escape is perfect...exactly what my husband and I hoped it would be! Roxanne is lovely...she responds very quickly to all inquiries and gives guests all the privacy they might hope for and assistance they might need. We couldn't have asked for more and can't wait to return. Thank you, Roxanne!!

    Anne Marie2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Roxanne was a wonderful host. The stay was great and safe. Her response to questions are immediate. The shared location is perfect in case we need to reach her she’s available which is nice and the car which is available for renting is so convenient. The area is in the middle of everything! Aruba was beautiful and great people, Roxanne’s Airbnb made this stay better.

    Ixcel2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Roxanne was every guest’s dream. Her place was so clean and everything was just perfect. We loved the pool, being able to sit on the veranda for hours and enjoy just being there in that beautiful weather. Roxanne did so much to make sure all was well with us. We hope to return whenever possible but have those wonder memories to last us our lifetime

    Diana2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Roxanne is an AMAZING host. The yellow escape exceeded our expectations. The house was clean, spacious and the pool and patio area are amazing! Roxanne picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, which was very much appreciated. Location wise, we found to be central to everything. It was a perfect location. The car Roxanne had available to rent was great. Low cost and hassle free. Definitely beats having to book through a rental car company. We very much appreciated her hospitality. Don't hesitate to book the yellow escape for your trip to Aruba. You won't regret it!!

    Becca2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • I don't want to tell anybody so that they don't book because I want it

    Jeffrey2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Airbnb experience and it was wonderful! Roxanne and her parents are lovely. They feel like close friends that you have known forever. Roy drove us to and from the airport while providing some history and comedy. He was great! Roxanne is a gem and provided restaurant and beach suggestions and responded quickly with any questions we had. The house is perfect. I traveled with my husband and our teenage daughter. It had everything we needed and more. The pool was awesome. As others have said the view from the patio was sensational. I loved my morning yoga and coffee listening to the birds sing. This was also our first time visiting Aruba. We will definitely be back and will be booking the Yellow Escape. We can not say enough about this property and the people that own it. Thank you!!!!

    Santa Cruz, Aruba, Aruba

    The coolest and most romantic hideaway in Aruba. It's ideal for active couples + perfect as well for those looking for a place to recharge their batteries and just relax.Situated in hills right in the middle of Aruba, 10 min away from all beaches etc
    Right on the border of Aruba's national park Arikok, this hidden little paradise is perfect if you are looking for peace and quiet, lazy chilling around the pool or if you love off road bike riding and long walks through the hills, while enjoying the most amazing views of the island from all angles. There is a shared pool on the premisses, a lush garden, a beach tennis/ volleyball field, hammocks and lounge chairs throughout the garden and our faithful "Kono", the golden retriever that lives on the premises You can have as much or as little interaction as you like. We are a very private kind of family, but everyone is always welcome and we love sharing our love for and knowledge of Aruba with our guests and friends. Jamanota is the highest point on the island and therefor the views from that area are spectacular, the sunsets unforgetable, and because it's completely hidden, the amazing the peace and quiet so unique and my favorite part of the location. Even though Aruba is very small, we always recommend renting a car while staying anywhere in Aruba. The infrastructure is just not the best when it comes to bike paths and walkways and it's much to hot to walk long distances. Our location is reachable by public transportation, but buses only pass by a few times a day. The kitchen is fully stocked. Stoof, oven, fridge, microwave, pots and pans and all you need to set a table for a feast. Anything missing, your host most probably will have it for you, just ask!
    It's completely quiet and secluded from all the hustle and bustle and you are surrounded by nature and our national park is right in your backyard. Beautiful hikes and biking or just a nice walk in the hills arround you, is all possible right from your own doorstep
  • Our stay at Mayra's place was just what my husband and I needed for our vacation. The property is beautiful and an amazing spot to really enjoy Aruba. Though we weren't able to meet Mayra on this visit, Cecilia who handles the property for Mayra while she is away was so kind and helpful.The property was quiet and perfect for a couple who want to stay away from the tourist areas, plus there are dogs, cats, and a parrot who are all very welcoming to the guests, We definitely enjoyed them. Mayra was very responsive any time I messaged her any questions. I would definitely come back and stay here.

    Misty2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mayra was an excellent host and her property is beautiful. A little out of the way but if seclusion and privacy is what your looking for then this is the place for you. The pets are lovely and fun to be with. We enjoyed our stay, thank you very much.

    Brian2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first trip to Aruba, and Mayra’s place made our trip amazing. It’s an adorable, private space, that is stocked with everything you need. The pool area was so nice, and the perfect way to relax at the end of our day’s adventures. We used the kitchen every day, it’s stocked with all the cooking utensils you could need. We loved all the pets on the property, they’re all so sweet and made our visit that much better. We are already planning our second trip back.

    Katie2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our 2nd visit was even better than the first one. Fully equipped kitchen, everything was clean. We will miss hanging out by the pool with Kono and Chica.

    Olga2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had such an amazing time staying at Mayra's place for our Aruba trip! The property was BEAUTIFUL and very well maintained. The guest house was very comfortable and had everything we needed to relax and cook simple meals. Loved the porch hammock and dining table on the porch where we enjoyed our meals. The animals of the property were definitely a highlight, so sweet and friendly. We loved the pool area and spent a good amount of time lounging and reading there. We had a rented car (definitely need one if staying here) and easily explored Aruba, we had a few very good meals at Zeerover's and dinner our last night in Aruba at Flying Fishbone, which was such a memorable and top notch experience, highly recommend both restaurants. We also enjoyed visiting the Donkey Sanctuary and exploring Arikok National Park, which are both very close. There is a guide provided with local tips that we found very helpful. Mayra was very on top of communication and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a perfect stay at Mayra's place and loved our time in Aruba, would highly recommend it.

    Linda2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Mayra, Roelof, & Cecilia are the perfect hostess! Cecilia greeted my husband & I at the front door and told us everything we needed to know about the property. Sweet Kono & Chica (one of the few pets that stay on the property) also greeted us at the door. Kono and Chica are super sweet & friendly! A sweet touch was complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us in the kitchen. Mayra’s home was super cute, very clean and had everything we needed for our week stay. The pool was also clean and perfect for the super hot days. I can go on and on about the property. I definitely recommend Mayra’s place!

    Lisbeth2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • We drove around the entire island and found that there is no other location we would rather stay than at this exact place. It feels like you are at a private resort, but much much better. There is a clean pool, beautiful landscaping, friendly pets, and gentle breezes. The provided snorkeling gear, icebox, and beach chairs made it so easy to spend an entire day at the beach. The house manual gives so many helpful and informative tips to having a great time experiencing the beauty of Aruba. Communicating with Mayra and the housekeeper was great and I always felt like we could contact them at anytime and get a quick response. Mayra is a very kind hearted person and cares more for the well being of her guests than anything else. The friendly spirit of Aruba is captured and experienced on this property and we will never forget our stay here. If you want to swim with sea turtles we highly recommend checking out the Tres Trapi Steps. We went snorkeling there many times and always saw turtles there.

    Brennen2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great place and location! Easy access to the city, market, or whatever you are trying to look for. It is a small island so you can explore anything you want too! Mayra was such a great host and provided an explicit message to a hike to the natural pool was definitely rewarding and good exercise for those who love to stay active! But you definitely need a car rental! We went with thrifty but won’t again because they wanted the car sparkling clean in order to get our deposit back! Like who can we avoid not getting sand in the car? So definitely ask before renting! Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again! *Read our letter in the guest book!*

    Santa Cruz, Aruba, Aruba

    Centrally located One bedroom studio on the One Happy Island of Aruba in the Dutch Caribbean. From this rural-ish neighborhood you are 7 minutes away from shopping, swimming or adventuring in Aruba.
    The house of is set in a bit of a sleepy neighborhood, so relaxing is easy. The space is has wooden and rattan furniture giving it an island beach vibe.
    There is a minimarket a supermarket and two bar restaurants in the same street.
  • The best part of this place is the caretaker Vera. This place is worth way more than Marc is asking. The house is in a country setting , with a long driveway to the house and no neighbors. It's perfect for cpls that dont need big resorts. It has ceramic tiled floors throughout kitchen , bathroom , living room , bedroom. Has an attached carport with table and chairs. Bbq grill that should be updated but I used it 5 times. Only 10 mins to mango halto beach , which has the best snorkeling on the island. Use of cooler and beach chairs and towels. We left 2 sets of snorkeling gear for future guests. A cpl bars , restaurants , and supermarkets on the same road. Laundry facilities on site. Must rent a vehicle. This place was amazing for 2 upstate NewYork guests. Everything you need. Vera ate dinner with us a few times. Thank you again vera for our gift. Rob and Heidi.

  • I just needed somewhere to lay my head for a couple days and just wanted to be in Aruba (Island Boy at heart!) ! A GREAT little spot if you’re trying to save a few dollars. Everything you need in this little coach house! Upon entering there is a kitchen area with a medium sized fridge and a four burner cooktop. There was a drawer with some salt, pepper and spices in it. There are plenty of pots and pans to use. There is a small table and two chairs. The front room area has a wicker loveseat and a wicker chair. I saw a portable air conditioning unit in the kitchen/front room area but I never turned it on. The bedroom is a good size and is equipped with a wall mounted television, a bed and a bedside table. There is a large closet that had extra sheets and towels in it. The attached bathroom has a shower and there were toiletries (soap, conditioner and shampoo, some stuff people left but still appreciated) . There were cleaning supplies under the sink. There is even a washer right outside (dryer not working at the time I was there). There was laundry detergent and fabric softener with the cleaning supplies! There were beach towels, a large cooler and a beach chair. There is a very nice lady (Vera) who lives in the main house who is a gem. She can answer any questions about the area and about the property. She even offered to wash a load of clothes for me! You will need a car. There are not many options in walking distance. There is a bar and Chinese food restaurant that stays open late just down the road and a couple of grocery stores. Pos Chiquito and Mangel Halto Beach (great snorkeling spot) is 7 minutes away (driving). The more popular Eagle and Palm beaches are about 20 minutes away. If you’re just looking for an adequate little spot and looking to save money don’t hesitate to take advantage of this location! A bit dated but it’s a great bargain.

  • We really enjoyed the stay in Piedra Plat, there is plenty of supermarkets near by and being that its centrally located, you can get anywhere without hassle in minutes. The caretaker was super sweet and we had no problems checking in/out. Plenty of privacy on the property and super safe. Looking forward to staying here again.

    Andrew2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time here, ice cubes in the fridge, sleeping room well equipped with stereo, TV and Air-con. The landlady was so nice and helpful, she gave us Toast and Peanut-butter when we arrived in the middle of the night! One thing to make it really perfect to us would be hot water in the bathroom.

    Adina2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Marc's mom is the sweetest lady ever, always willing to help and give you tips. The place is comfortable and nice and the price is definitely worth it. Plus it's located in a very centric zone, so nothing is ever too far away. 10/10

    The house is brand new (July 2018) and about 100 meters from the owners home. It is close to Ayo Rock Formation, a popular tourist attraction and beautiful nature area. The property offers a very quiet and private setting. A supermarket is located at about 1 minute by car. Andicuri beach is a 30 minute walking, 5 min. by car, a beautiful location for body surfing or just beach fun. Eagle beach and Palm beach are about a 10-15 minute drive. We have no doubt that you will love the place..
  • This is a place that outdoor people will love. The private patio out back with your own pool is wonderful. There are lights to enjoy it into the evening. We enjoyed the birds, reptiles, plus the occasional goats and sheep that wander through the yard. It is far enough out of the city to give you a authentic island experience while at the same time not being more than a 15-20 minute drive to any of the major beaches and attractions. Andicuri Beach, the Natural Bridge, Goldmine Ruins and Ayo Rock formation are all within walking distance (or a short drive). Plus, Freddie is as great of a host as you are going to find-- very personable and responsive.

  • With my wife we are glad that we stayed at Freddy's place. This was out third vacation time in Aruba and this was that best place we stayed. Very nice, quiet, clean, great location with nature at distance of the hand. We had more than expected thanks to Freddy's hospitality. The new private swimming pool gave us a great time morning and evening. We enjoyed a huge back porch for meals and just resting. We would come back to this place again especially with other family members because Freddy is preparing a new additional separate vacation space. Thanks Freddy!

  • 5 Stars all the way around! Freddy met us at the airport which was wonderful, especially since finding the house is a little difficult. Freddy gave us directions and suggestions for things to do around the island and made sure we were set up before departing. This home is sparkling clean and had more than enough room for our 3 adult travelers. We enjoyed dining outdoors and the pool is spectacular! definitely recommend to anyone who likes to be away from the hustle and bustle. the location is close to things to do on the island but you will definitely need a car to get around.

  • The entire house was absolutely immaculate upon our arrival. The king size bed was the most comfortable my husband and I have slept on. Sheets were very soft cotton and the king size pillows were new and perfect. Freddy The owner and host provided everything you could possibly need if you want to cook a few meals in. The new swimming pool provided us a nice afternoon reprieve from the beaches. Freddy spared no expense in building this beautiful house. We spent the vast majority of our time on the huge back porch which overlooks the mountains. The front porch was also very nice and provided a wonderful gentle breeze. The house is located 3 miles off the main road in a beautiful quiet peaceful little neighborhood.You are far enough from the tourist area to afford you peace and quiet but close enough to the beautiful beaches like Eagle beach which is approximately 15 minutes away. Freddys outgoing personality and the immense hospitality he has shown is the second reason we will be coming back next year. If you need local tips he is more than willing to give them to you. This house and this host are the epitome of what a wonderful experience through Airbnb should be. Thank you again Freddy for all that you have done to make this vacation so wonderful. Christie and Kevin

  • An exceptional place !!! A little earthly paradise !! Ferdinand is an exceptional host and very attentive to the smallest needs !!! Very clean, very quiet, beautiful pool, magnificent house and close to all activities (arikok park, ayo training, natural bridge, natural pool) etc. An ideal place to share with family or friends.

    Danielle2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you, Freddy, for your greatest hospitality! We are totally in love with your fantastic place! It was beyond our expectations. It's such a spiritual retreat, that relaxes you, refreshes your mind and body(many thanks to your latest addition, a private swimming pool). And it's a very special place, surrounded by unique nature. We had a nice morning walks, Ayo and Cassibari Rock Formation is in just 5 min away from the house. Our stay was very comfortable, we found all we need. A/C in both bedrooms is quiet and efficient. The kitchen is very well equipped. Our daughter was very happy with the TV also, but most of the time we spent on your tremendous back terrace. I miss it already!

    Olga2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was fantastic right from the beginning. Freddy met us at the airport and took us to pick up our rental car. On the way, he surprised us by telling us that he had just finished putting in a private pool for our rental. Once we had the car, we followed him back to the house and were thrilled with what we saw. The back porch and back yard area, especially now with the private pool, are just gorgeous. Our kids were in the pool every day and we relaxed on the porch each evening. We were originally worried about the location, but it turned out to be just perfect. We were quite close to many attractions on the eastern side of the island and only a 10-15 minute drive to most of the beaches and restaurants we wanted to try on the western side. You do need a rental car if you want to stay here. Freddy was a fantastic host and super quick to respond to messages. Little touches like having 4 beach chairs and a few sand toys for us to use made the stay even better. If we head back to Aruba, we will definitely be staying at this property again.

    Jeff2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully quiet place with all mod cons! Together with our kids enjoyed the pool very much. Freddy was very relaxed, could take all the time on departure day since our plane only went later. We felt very welcome and will definitely come back!

The apartment has a hair dryer, shampoo, soap, towels, the truth is that it is very comfortable. We will return without hesitation.

    Veronica2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful living space, convenient location (if you have a car which I highly suggest getting for exploring). Maud was so sweet and accommodating and so was her cleaning girl who came every couple days. (Amazing!!!) The place is brand new and makes for the perfect stay in Aruba. I will definitely be staying at the Palm leaf again.

    Attractive Hillside Studio Apartment with spectacular nature views of the peaceful surrounding Valleys and Hills of Seroe Pita, with a peek of the Caribbean Ocean from our terrace. Come and experience local life in the heart of the Island!
  • The apartment was really nice, clean and had everything we needed. Zubaidah is very friendly and everything worked out well with the check-in and the information given to us. It is also really nice that the apartment is in the middle of the island so everything can be easily reached by car which we highly recommend in general to make the most of your stay in Aruba :) Thanks again so much for the awesome stay - we loved it!

    Melissa2018-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Once again we had a wonderful stay at Zubaidah’s! The appartement was very clean and the kitchen suplies were great. We love the area because it’s very Aruban and quite. We will definitly stay here again!

    Marisa Elize2018-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is my second stay at Z’s villa and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you’re looking for a cost effective arubian experience Z’s place is the place to be! She is very welcoming and exhibits this by handcrafting a welcome sign and pinning it to your door. You will need to rent a car if you stay here though because the hotel area is a 20 minutes drive and the nearest beach is 10-15. I will definitely stay here again if it’s available..

    Andrew2018-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Had a very nice stay in this studio. Everything looked as shown on the pictures and in the description. The neighborhood is very quiet and you have a lot of privacy at the studio. The contact went very smoothly. You do need a car to get anywhere, but that is actually everywhere in Aruba. Only minus: the bed was quite narrow and on the hard side. I would definitely recommend this studio!

    Marjolein2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • a dwelling located in the middle of the island everything is available within 5 min vehicle recommended no worries about neighborhood and quiet airconditioned perfect I recommend

    Denis2017-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Super apparently! compulsory rental car but easy to find with a GPS! Close to beaches! own apartment! Functional! Zubaidah was always available for us! I recommend !

    Adrien2017-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • This little studio was such a wonderful place to call home for my 10-day solo Aruba vacation. It is located out of the way from all the hustle and bustle of the main strip. Yet fairly central on the island with Hooiberg, both rock formations and the Arikok National Park all within a 10 minute drive. And beyond that the most northern beach (Arashi) is a 15 minute drive and the most southern beach (Baby Beach) about a half hour. The studio itself was quaint and perfect for what I needed. It had a mini fridge, cutlery, plates, hot plate, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, etc. All the essentials to make meals up. And I'm sure if you needed anything additional Zubaidah would assist in a heartbeat. Most days I ended up heading out to the beach or an activity then coming back for lunch before heading back out to enjoy the rest of the day. As stated in previous reviews there is no hot water in the shower which wasn't a problem for me. After being in the sun in felt really nice and generally helped to subside any irritation from my new skin color. Leading up to the trip Zubaidah was very welcoming and informative. A few days before I left she sent me detailed instructions (with pictures) to help with finding her place. If you are thinking about this location I would highly recommend renting a car. It gives you so much more flexibility since there aren't alot of amenities within walking distance. If you're thinking of adventuring around the National Park I would suggest renting a jeep so you can access all the sites, if not go for an off road tour! Snorkeling Conchi (the natural pool) is something not to be missed! As for driving in aruba I found it fairly easy to navigate with Google maps (download the offline map ahead of time as suggested in previous reviews). They drive on the right side of the road with very minor differences to 'North American' standards. The only differences that were noticeable to me were: no right turn on red light, lots lots of roundabouts, not many stop signs (more yielding or going with the flow of traffic). Travelling here alone felt pretty safe. Of course always trust your gut but beyond some cat calling from guys there wasn't much I felt concerned with. I absolutely loved everything Aruba had to offer, it has definitely stolen my heart. The bottom line: If you want to get away from the resort scene and want to adventure at your own pace this place is perfect!

    Shawna2017-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described. There is not hot water but the cold water is lukewarm. The first initial step into the shower was a little painful but you do get used to it. There were a few spiders and a water bug during our stay. I rented a car and I found the place perfectly fine. It was easy to get a hold of the host. She was very kind and sweet. She helped us call Pizza Hut for delivery since I could not call with my phone. She also gave us extra rolls of toilet paper when requested. Thank you!

    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!

The kitchen is fully equipped with a kitchen island, a large American refrigerator (with an ice maker), oven, stove, dish washer, microwave oven, a Nespresso machine (George Clooney not included!), a normal coffee maker, a blender and tons of kitchen utensils. And for the wine enthusiastics out there: the villa even has a climate cabinet to keep your bottles of wine at the perfect temperature. There are three separate bedrooms (all air conditioned) with comfortable beds and bed linens. Two bedrooms have king-size beds and the third bedroom has two single beds. So the villa sleeps six people in total. One bedroom has its own bathroom. A second bathroom is shared between the other two bedrooms. Both bathrooms have a toilet and walk in shower. Towels are provided. There is also a hairdryer available. The beautiful garden is totally secluded and has a swimming pool with a shallow kids section. There are inviting sun beds to soak up the sun.

    The villa is very centrally located, only four miles from the international airport. It is peaceful and quiet, yet, you will find all the things you want to do and see nearby. The main town, Oranjestad, is only a ten-minute car ride from the house. Some of the nicest beaches (of the world!) like Eagle Beach and Palm Beach are located at less than six miles.
  • We were a group of 6 adults sharing this villa, and we had the most excellent time. The pictures are accurate! We were able to meet both the hosts and the Property Manager (Anne), and they were just wonderful. Any question or issue (very minor), were dealt with so quickly it was just so easy for us to relax and enjoy our vacation. Definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants to find a convenient spot to use as home base, as you trip around Aruba. We would most definitely strongly recommend that you stay here, you won’t be disappointed in anything.

  • Staying at Sher & Kim's property was so great! The pool was lovely and the neighborhood was nice. Anne helped with our check in and out with ease. Her recommendation of using the maps.me app was a life saver. It took us right to the house with no interruptions. We ended up using the app for the rest of our trip (because we didn't want to use data while in Aruba). It got us exactly where we needed to go. I don't know how we lived without it during our previous trips! Thank you again Sher, Kim and Anne for an excellent experience!

    Sarah2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This villa was absolutely amazing. It is beautiful inside and out. We really enjoyed having breakfast outside at the table and lounging by the pool after a beach day. The location was perfect - about 15 minutes from most locations. It felt very homey and we would love to return again one day.

    Dani2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the place. Everything we need and then some. Very clean.

    Austin2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The space was great for a family with a baby. The pool was spacious and we enjoyed all the tubes beach towels and beach chairs (Although it was broken :). Checked in after arriving at the airport and couldn’t meet the host as noticed. Had to call the host to find the key. (Thank god he answered the call quickly!) There was no toilet paper, paper towel, and dish soap. Next day of arrival, the property manager brought them. So we had to buy those at the supermarket. Found hair dryer, body wash at one bathroom only. Would’ve been great if the other bathroom had it too. Overall, it was a wonderful nice house and made our trip beautiful!

    Jaehee2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sher & Kim's house is even more beautiful than in the pictures. The location is central and by car the beaches such as Eagle Beach and Tres Trapi (great for snorkeling) can be reached in 10 minutes. Baby beach 20 min. The large supermarkets 10 min drive. The house itself is a dream: - comfortable beds - hot water in the bathroom - fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and all the necessary utensils for cooking. American fridge with ice cube machine to our great delight. Kitchen herbs, toilet paper, kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets etc were ready for us. - large dining table and sofa - washing machine and dryer (detergent and fabric softener present) - a wonderfully clean swimming pool with sun loungers - outdoor dining table and lounge set - TV and sound system - barbecue - fenced garden with privacy There are chairs, sun beds and a cool box for the beach. There are also towels and bed linen to use. It was super clean on our arrival. Sher & Kim are great people to email with. They respond quickly and have ensured that we had an unforgettable holiday. We will definitely return here.

    Natasja2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great time staying this property for our vacation. We rented a car and traveled the entire island from Baby Beach to the California Lighthouse. We would stay at this property again and it is perfect for a family vacation as it has 3 spacious bedrooms. I added a list of pros and cons below. I will mention that this is a self serve property and they do not provide “starter” toilet tissue, paper towels, or trash bags. I was a little annoyed and helpless after getting off a 5 hour flight and checking in the property to only find out I could not use the restroom unless I went to the store first to purchase items. Overall, we had the best time and would visit again! Pros: Easy commute to all places on the island Spacious Very clean and beautiful decor Great pool Kitchen had most essentials Washer and Dryer on property Air and water included Gated property with alarm system Property has beach towels and chairs for use Cons: No toilet paper No trash bags No paper towel Could not control pool lights Stray dogs/animals in the area. Be sure to check surroundings and drive in the driveway and close property gate before getting out of the car.

    In a quiet area, close the north coast, surf beach Andicuri and Ayo Rockformation, you'll find this colourful new studio: 'Hopi Cadushi'. It's perfect for nature lovers, bikers, surfers, scuba divers and for those who love their privacy and rest.
    The studio has airconditioning and free wifi-internet. It contains a fully equipped kitchen with 4 pits gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and fridge-freezer. Outside is a private parking lot and a spacious fenced private terrace with picnic table and sun loungers. Laundry service are available on request.
    There's a bakery and small supermarket just around the corner, as well as some fastfood and takeway restaurants. It is quite a walk though. Ayo Rockformations are on walking distance, running and cycle trails close by. Andicuri beach is great for surfing, body boarding, a quiet afternoon at a local beach or even a late night barbeque. Only on a 2 miles distance from here. You could even cycle to it or go by car and walk the last bit.
  • Leonie and Pawel are wonderful hosts. We spent 3 weeks at Hopi Cadushi and were just happy. We missed nothing and were helped with all our questions. Leonie and Pawel were very helpful and gave us great tips. Thanks for everything. The apartment is lovingly furnished and has everything you need. Moreover, it is very central, so that you can get everywhere very well. A top point to explore the whole island. We can only recommend it! Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit und ganz liebe Grüße an euch Drei.

  • Leonie and Pablo are great hosts. I loved it, a nice quiet area, spacious, comfy bed and spotlessly clean, zero complaints. Leonie organised the car rental to meet me at the airport, she gave me great directions to get to the place and advice on the island. Pablo recommended Happy Divers for diving which was a great experience. Thank you both 😊

  • For my first trip to Aruba I preferred being in a central location and thus chose this place. And it was a brilliant decision! Any spot on the island can be reached within maximum 30 minutes driving distance whilst the setting of the studio is in very natural and peaceful surroundings. I was welcomed by Pawel who created the studio himself, amazing! Bright colours and a lot of beautiful details even on the patio, a very comfortable bed, bathroom with mosaic mirrors and a well equipped kitchen is there to be enjoyed. Even an adapter and a clothes line was provided. There is plenty of space to park the car and WiFi is very good. A bakery and food stores are close by and magical Ayo Rock around the corner. Wonderful stay!

  • We spent two weeks Hopi Cadushi holiday and loved it. Everything was 100% as described and even better, for example there were beach chairs and towels that we were allowed to use. The location is great, about in the middle of the island, so you get to all the beaches quickly. Restaurants and supermarkets are also within easy reach. A rental car is mandatory! Thank you again to Leonie and Pawel, we were allowed to live in their pretty house! On our next trip to Aruba we would book it again immediately!

    Maik2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Leonie’s place was the best decision I made on my trip to Aruba. The place is beautifully decorated, quiet and private. I made full use of the kitchen every morning and night and had everything I needed to do so. I would 10/10 recommend staying here. You will definitely need a rental car but that just gives you the freedom to explore everything Aruba has to offer. I was able to use this place as a quiet comfortable place to call home at the end of every adventure. If you are looking for a place off the beaten path and away from the chaos of the tourists look no further.

    Ally2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was so amazing, my little oasis away from the high rises with beautiful nature all around. They were super helpful when I got lost trying to find the place (they came and got me haha!) and gave me great tips for where to find the best snorkeling and let me borrow their snorkeling gear! I worked a few days from here and the internet was perfect and the space was such a joy to work from. I was able to easily drive from either side of the island and loved learned more about living in Aruba by staying here! <3 Thank you!

    Maura2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice apartment in a quiet location in the middle of nature! Arikok National Park is close by. Good care is taken of the guests.

    Tim2019-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location, so quiet and peaceful, it feels like it's just you and the country side. The outdoor space is sooo lovely and relaxing. The hosts are very chill, down to earth and nice and gave us the best tip for exploring the park and even gave us body boards for our entire stay. Thank you so much for allowing us to have a lovely stay.

    Victianny2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely the perfect spot, right in the middle of everything. Not too far from the beach and the road is very close to go North or South. The apartment was well maintained and cozy. Came with a comfortable bed and television and AC. Free parking out front. 10/10 would stay again. Great location

  • Henna has very kindly refunded our money at literally the last minute due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We will most certainly be rebooking with her once we are able to visit Aruba in the future.

    Constance2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Henna’s place is beautiful, in a quiet location with lots of space, the villa was ideal for our needs , and the pool was perfect , would definitely go back

    Lucy2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • You will not be disappointed! Beautiful quite place We loved it ..Would definately come again

    Wanda2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Henna’s place was beautiful. It included amenities I hadn’t even thought of and would not have expected. She was welcoming, offered suggestions to local eateries (which we loved) and went out of her way to drive us to the local car rental place when our taxi driver did not show up. This gesture alone spoke to her character and how much she aims to please.

    Cijian2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful! Perfect for a get away! Henna was very thoughtful and a wonderful hostess. I couldn’t have found a better place to stay

    Deontae2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Hennas place was absolutely fantastic! Exactly what I was looking for. Henna is very welcoming and was great with checking in with us and giving us recommendations. Always answered our questions in a timely manner. If I ever find myself back in Aruba I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Cassidy2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and probably not the last time. The cottage very clean, location quiet and beautiful outside space. Also the dogs are not bothered at all, are super sweet. Car is anyway on Aruba, so no problem that beach is not within walking distance. Everything is nearby.

    Tamara2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Hennas was the perfect quiet getaway. We were never a far drive from anywhere and Henna was super communicative. We enjoyed our first stay in Aruba!

Most of the roads are accessible by regular cars. There are great hiking and biking trails through the park.
  • Amazing spot, we cooked almost every meal in the outdoor kitchen. Very relaxed beautiful scenery. We hope to come back again

    Rob2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect place to stay in Aruba if you want your own private, quiet getaway. Arikok National Park and the Donkey Sanctiary are minutes away. Beaches and grocery is easily accessible by car within 10-15 mins. Hosts are friendly and have everything you need in the space. Their pets are super friendly, too!

    Neely2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We truly enjoyed our time at Muk and Doreth’s place. We appreciated that it was within a short driving distance from the majority of the main attractions on the island. The place was very private and we felt very at home. It was fun to be able to cook outside on the porch ( we cooked or grilled about once per day). The air conditioning kept it very cold and kept the whole unit an accurate temperature to the setting. The shower had good warmth for the first few minutes and then was lukewarm, which was better than I expected, because a lot of showers on the island aren’t heated. Muk and Doreth were very responsive and were available If and when we needed stuff. We hadn’t realized that the bathroom didn’t have a door to separate it from the bedroom, which was a bit unique, but wasn’t an issue. They have 2 dogs and 4 cats, who liked to visit us throughout the day or when we cooked in the outdoor kitchen. It was great to have the beach chairs, beach towels, and scuba gear as an option- we got use out of them daily. Muk showed us around the property and explained how to use the air conditioning, stove top, and had local recommendations. I recommend you stay here if you’re excited to explore Aruba and want to stay somewhere with more character and privacy.

    Luke2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Jamanota Happy Place was a great start to our trip. You WILL need a vehicle! Muk and Doreth will help any way they can and are quick to reply to any questions- very hospitable. They have two dogs and a few cats- as sweet and gentle as can be. Do not be alarmed when you arrive/return, the dogs will alert Muk and Doreth to your arrival and (possibly-at least they did for us) wait outside your door in the morning to greet you. The bathroom amenities are top notch with a rainfall shower head and a very nice toilet with two flush settings. Muk and Doreth go out of their way to make your stay as wonderful as possible- you will not be disappointed! Make sure to take advantage of the proximity to Arikok National Park.

    Kassandra2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our host is very kind and friendly even We checked in at late night for flight schedules. We stayed here for 5days , we got gift every morning with very quiet natural environment And we also spent time friendly and peacefully with 2 dogs and 4cats. The place is located in the middle of the island, so if you rent a car, you can arrive anywhere on the island in a short time. We could rent snorkel , beach chairs, towels, etc. from their warehouse and enjoy them very conveniently on the beach. Thank you to Muk and Doreth again!

    SungBin2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice location near Arikok National Park that gets you away from the touristy spots in Aruba. The space was clean, comfortable and modern. We loved the outdoor kitchen and cooked a few times during our stay - the hosts provided us with everything needed to cook, even pitchers to make sangria! It was nice to have a homecooked meal during sunset and especially enjoyed the hammocks afterward to read in. The extra amenities, such as snorkeling gear, brand new beach chairs, and bikes were just the icing on top! Since it is a bit off the grid, about 10-15 minutes away from the main attractions there, you'll require a rental car. I say rental car over scooter as well because there are neighborhood dogs that may run after you so to be safe, come in a rental car. But, the plus side is, you get peace and quiet and beautiful sunsets over the park!

    Crystal2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This listing should be in the Airbnb Plus category! It is one of the best places I have stayed in. Muk & Doreth’s place is the perfect combination of authenticity, comfort, and luxury. Perfect AC, great water temperature/pressure, comfortable bed, sparkling clean in/out, outstanding porch with lots of sitting options to see the beautiful sunset, and a gorgeous outdoor kitchen which we actually used to cook a couple meals. My wife and I are frequent travelers always looking for a local experience, but comfortable enough and with working wifi(we are Millennials:)). This stay is located near Arikok National Park and beaches are 10-15 minute drive. Hosts are very hospitable too. There are dogs and cats in premises who are super cute and friendly. You will love your time here, trust us, you will not regret it.

    Oscar2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space hidden away from all of the super touristy spots. The host was very kind and offered helpful tips, the space had a great outdoor kitchen and sitting area, and the space was incredibly clean. Highly recommended.

  • We stayed 10 days at Willeke’s place and enjoyed every moment. The location in the middle of the island allows one to drive to any part of the island and to any beach for less than 25 min. Willeke is a great host, made our trip very comfortable and recommended nice restaurants and beaches. Thank you!

    Mila2018-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A place to rest away from the hotel zone. Super recommendable!

    Ariel2018-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • A brilliant hostess, one of the best I've ever met. Willeke has created an intimate retreat where attention has been placed into the smallest of details. She has a beautiful eye for design. The villa has an outdoor kitchen and is fully stocked with pots, pans, cutlery and similar necessities. The location is convenient: you will be 4 mins from mangel halto and 30 mins to the farthest reaches of the island. Entrance to Arikok is just 5 minutes away. The location is about 15 or so minutes to the airport. Very easy to find if you follow her instructions. She has the *sweetest* dogs and cats. Just in case, bring citronella if it has rained recently. I have already recommended her to my friends and I will be returning soon. Thank you Willeke!!! 💕

    Andrés2017-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Willeke is lovely and Caring lady who made us feel like in home. We were satisfied with the acomodation and havent miss anything and if so then Willeke was always helpful. We send kisses to tara y risa

    Lucia2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Willeke made us feel very welcome. She even provided some fruit, bread and yoghurt for a snack so we didn't have to starve the first night ;-) The guesthouse is very much as described and everything that is needed is available. It's simple, so do expect geckos to stop by and say hello. And you will need some form of transportation. Willeke assisted us with renting a car for a week. She was always available to help us with questions. We very much enjoyed our stay and if we were to return, we would be delighted to stay at her place again.

    David2016-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and small apartment, everything you need is there. Even beach towels, snorkle gear, an iron and hairdryer. So don't overpack ;) Willeke is such a hospitable host, can't find anywhere better on Aruba if you like to stay away from all the big hotels and apartments. Home away from home in the middle of the cunucu. She's got 2 cats and 2 dogs who are so happy there and they will come and sit with you :)

    Sandra2016-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Willeke is very welcoming! Does everything to make it feel at home.

    Joop2016-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • very positive experience. nice apartment in a very well-kept property. Very beautiful the idea of the outdoor kitchen, equipped with everything. Location, in our opinion, perfect and above all quiet. You must rent a car to reach the beautiful beaches in no time, the Arikok National Park, Oranjestad, etc, but the beauty is just that ... to be free to discover every day a different and special angle of this "One Happy Island" . Willeke is a wonderful host, always friendly and helpful with a beautiful smile. He proceeded to make us find milk, cereal, eggs, cheese etc for breakfast as coming in the afternoon of December 31 we found the supermarket closed. Even for machine trust her! Willeke has two dogs and a cat, we tried to win their trust and eventually played together, but if you are animal lovers do not worry, they are very polite and never intrusive. Thanks again for the wonderful stay Willeke ... Nature's way is "One Happy Place"!

  • During my stay in Aruba, Gardenia went above and beyond to ensure I felt welcome in her home. She provided me with detailed instructions on how to reach her house by bus or car and always responded promptly in the days leading up to the trip. Twice she offered to drive me places out of her way just to save me some time in transit on the bus. She is a wonderful conversationalist and a warm host. I felt at ease in her home at all times. If you are looking for a place to stay that is off the beaten path and are willing to take a stab at bus transit to get around (it was much easier than I expected and everyone is willing to help you out, bus drivers included), then I highly recommend booking with Gardenia.

    Wilson2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Thomas2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

    Davide2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Gardenia was one of the best hosts I have had. We had great conversations, she showed me around some cool places & overall went out of the expected to make my stay very fabulous! I would come back for sure :). The bus for me didn't do it so much as it goes every hour (the big one) but if you walk just a bit more you can find the small ones that take you right to downtown. Location was great! In the middle of the island and close to everything. Thank you Gardenia!!

    Helen2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Her home is very quaint and very clean. The room has a fan and a lovey bed that I found quite comfortable. You have full use of the kitchen and the grocery store is within walking distance. Amazing space

    Tammy2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Gardenia is very welcoming, supportive and inspiring. She feels when to offer help and when to give some space. I stayed one week with her and we did some stuff together. The room is small, but cosy and the house has everything you will need during your stay. It’s located off the tourist bustle and there is a bus going to Oranjestad nearby. I had a really good stay at hers and can undoubtful recommend staying with her.

    Welcome to our private apartment. Centrally located, only a 5 minutes drive from the airport you will feel immediately at ease when you reach. The apartment is very quiet and surrounded by tropical landscaping. It is equipped with all the basics to relax. Outside you can splash in the pool or have a bite on the bbq in the shade with butterflies and kolibries around. The city center is only 10 minutes away. Parking space is available on the premises.
    Safe, quiet, clean and private space for your dream vacation.
    Safe and quiet area surrounded by the nature of Aruba, located 5 minutes drive from the airport and 10 minutes to down town.
  • We stayed at Edwin’s and Aldona’s rental for a week. This was our first trip to Aruba and it truly felt like home during our stay. For two people, the space was perfect. We really appreciated the use of their beach towels and snorkeling gear. Thankful for a nice shower with hot water, comfortable king size bed with AC unit in the bedroom. Cooled off the room quickly and quietly. The kitchen had everything we needed as well. It is centrally located on the island away from the touristy areas, but roughly 15 minutes away via car. We would absolutely stay here again!

    James2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Edwin & Aldona’s for one week with my boyfriend, and we had a fantastic time. We would stay here again. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. It is about ten minutes from the airport. We cooked several meals on the electric tops in the kitchen. Since everything is electrical, no appliances gave off carbon monoxide, so there wasn’t a need for a fire detector/carbon monoxide detector. Edwin & Aldona’s gave great recommendations for local places to eat, relax, and explore the island, which we did a lot.

    Sharde2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful week in Edwin & Aldona place. They are really welcoming and helpful if you need advice. The place is super clean with everything you will need towel, to cook... You can relax in the pool after a day beach. The location is central so perfect to visit the island better to rent a car. Aruba its a magic place really chill with beautiful beaches. I really recommend this lovely air bnb.

    Ingrid2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • The house of Edwin and Aldona was perfect, the location for us was the best since it is between baby beach and the center of Oranjestad (almost half a little closer to baby beach), the place is very quiet, clean, nice and you have a lot of privacy. We recommend renting a car in Aruba is super cheap.

    Camila2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great location to access anywhere on the island in under 30 minutes. Right off a main road but still quiet, private area. 5 minute drive to one of the best snorkeling beaches. Just down the road from a grocery store and fast food. Love the kitchen area to cook and dining table to eat at. Love the bedroom being a separate room. The pool was great to relax in after a day of adventuring or to cool off in the middle of the day. Also enjoyed the hot water and air condition

    Eryn2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had an amazing vacation at Edwin and Aldona's place. The space is larger than we anticipated, with a round dining table and two chairs in addition to the outside lounge area, and a comfortable king-size bed. There was everything we needed to prepare simple meals and snacks and to relax in the evenings - nice flat screen TV and an AC unit when you're hanging out. A car is essential and we drove all over the Island: Baby Beach and Rodgers Beach (less crowded) to the south; California lighthouse, Boca Catalina and Arashi beach to the north. Locally, there's Mangel Halton beach plus, Zeerovers and Marina Pirata fish restaurants five to ten minutes away. For nightlife, we drove to Oranjestad, Eagle Beach and Palm Beach. Overall, Edwin and Aldona's place is peaceful, safe and great value!

  • Top location in a quiet part of Santa Cruz. Close to the airport and Oranjestad and within 25 minutes you are at the high rise strip where the big hotels are and Palm Beach - Three Steps Beach - Arashi Beach - Boca Catalina Beach. It is also not far to Baby Beach in San Nicolas and other nice quiet beaches in the area such as Mangel Halto. There are also (Chinese supermarkets) nearby.

    Vincent2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for the lovely stay! Edwin and Aldona were very welcoming and the room was a great escape :)

    This unique monumental landmark was built in 1933. The original hand painted tiles gives this house its stunning look. Great entertainment area outside with pool and huge covered patio. The 5th bedroom is a free standing studio next to the house. This is a happy house on a happy island. All major beaches and tourist attractions are less then 15 minutes by car. Supermarket and fresh bakery just around the corner.
    This House was built in 1933 by the richest man in Santa Cruz. The story goes that he won the lottery and built the house with the money and hid the rest of his money under a loose tile. One day he came back from a vacation and all his money was stolen. You can still see the damage of the broken tiles today.
  • We celebrated our parent's 60th birthdays with the whole family at Bendrie's place at Aruba. It is a really charming house with a great outside area which is cool and provides a lot of shade which is what you want. It is a perfect place for a larger group to hang around and very well located to visit all the different parts of the island. Can totally recommend.

    Willem2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Bendrie’s house is better than we expected, we were seven and there was plenty of space for everyone, is a confortable and beautiful house. Bendrie is such a great person, he help us with everything. The house has a very good location, in the middle of the island is near everything.

    Adaelen2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great space to rent. Bendrie was extremely helpful throughout our stay and very accommodating. He greeted us for our check in and provided complementary beverages which was very nice. The backyard space is incredible and where we spent 90% of our time while at the residence. Great for late night food, drinks and fun. Neighborhood is nice and it's easy to get to any part of the island from here. Will be renting this one again onour next trip.

    Gerard2019-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Bendrie's house! The house was gorgeous and clean, and check in was very easy. The house is a short drive (~15 mins) to many beaches and other attractions (including the national park and many great restaurants). Bendrie was incredibly helpful leading up to our stay. One recommendation for future guests - one of the neighbors has multiple roosters so we would suggest bringing earplugs!

    Ella2019-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Bendrie’s house! The communication was super easy and quick and the place looks exactly like it does on the pictures. His house is great, very clean and has everything you need. Would definitely stay here again!!!

    Iryna2019-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bendrie was informative and quick to respond to any messages. Ingrid was very kind and attentive to anything we may need and offered tips on where to shop etc. The backyard was the best feature, very relaxing and great for the kids to wake up and jump in the pool. There were plenty of towels and linens which I really appreciated. Huchada is the nearby bakery mentioned in other reviews and its excellent.

    Christine2019-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great space, plenty of room, close to everything.

    Carrie2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent all around! If you're looking for a comfortable, spacious home in Aruba this is the place. Centrally located so nothing is too far away, but with enough amenities that you could just stay in and enjoy a nice day from your home! Highly recommend!

  • Gardenia is an amazing host! She is so nice, helpful, and inspiring. I enjoy talking to her and living with her a lot! Highly recommend to everyone!

    Yujie2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing! The house was clean and cozy. It is close to supermarket, beaches, and restaurant such as zeeover which by the way is an absolutely delicious local seafood restaurant. Our host Gardenia was very nice and easy going. She was always very attentive, extremely helpful and respectful to both me and my mother. She is also very fun to talk to and go out with. She told us tips and brought us to many places that we probably wouldn’t have gone to ourselves. She made sure that our trip was great and for that I thank her. I recommend her house 100 %. I would definitely come back to her house.

    Hisha2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful! Although Aruba has incredible landscapes and beaches, the lodging with Mrs. Gardenia is wonderful. The place is impeccable, central, comfortable and pleasant.

    Sharon2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • I really liked the area because I was looking for a local experience. For example, there are Aruban restaurants nearby, several supermarkets that locals use. There is a bicycle rental shop a few minutes away by walking that rents excellent bikes that can be used to tour the island. Gardenia was a wonderful, responsible and interesting host who introduced me to Aruban culture, different things to do, and other tips for my stay.

    Dan2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very clean, organized and very well located house, it is in a very safe sector. Additionally Mrs. Gardenia is very kind, respectful, a trustworthy person helped us in everything we need. Super recommended.

    Isabela2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I, were grateful to the hospitality and the environment that we developed our trip, with the personality of Gardenia and her home, we were satisfied enough to be a first visit to a beautiful place, from which we were pleasantly welcomed with a beautiful sun that we will miss a lot. Thank you for every detail and the sincerity with which we enter your home that you have a great year and good luck. Until next time. Gardenia! Greetings and hugs!

    Edwin2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Gardenia always has very good advice exit do not hesitate to ask him!

    Jeanluc2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Gardenia was a very gracious and helpful host. She provided me with endless information and ideas for things I was interested in Aruba. I enjoyed the use of her kitchen as cooking when I travel is very important to me. Her home was clean and convenient to all of the island by either bus, walking or by bike (my traveling methods while on the island.)

  • We enjoyed our 11 night stay. The house was clean & spacious and location great for exploring the island. The pool & jacuzzi were great for lazy mornings or cooling off after a day at the beach. The neighborhood is good and although there is some construction it didn't affect our stay. Be sure to check out Hooiberg for great views and Huchada the local bakery.

    Liz2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Santa Cruz is a nice central ‘out of the tourist zone’ place. We had a car and an app that worked without wifi and were set for the week. The most amazing bakery on the island is within walking distance. It’s 20-25 minutes to the top or bottom of the island, both of which have great swimming and snorkelling. 12 minutes to Mangel Halto, our favourite. Although Jose’s street is mostly very quiet there are a lot of nearby construction projects on the go. It was super windy the week we were there -luckily- it kept the mosquitos at bay. The kitchen was super equipped and the bed was good. Lots of room to unpack in the walk-in closet. The house was great for my knees, with only a couple stairs to get to the fantastic pool. And we really appreciated not having to carry around keys for the front door! We would have liked the alarm system to be working, and access to the safe, but I did not feel uncomfortable without them. Hazette, our host, was super responsive and very, very nice. He offered us his own chair and towels to take to the beach, as these were not available at the house. We had a wonderful, quiet vacation and would stay in Jose’s house again if we returned to One Happy Island!

    Cindy2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent! House was clean, area was nice, perfect stay for my birthday. Highly recommended!

    Zaria2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Jose's place is a great option to avoid the busy hotels. You will need to have a rental car, but the beaches are close by. Jose is quick to respond with anything you may need, and you can tell he takes great pride in his home. A beautiful place to stay on a beautiful island.

    Mike2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nice villas good location Much enjoyed at this property

    Liem2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jose's villa is a gem! It is close to everything, we rented a car and explored the island for 8 days! We cooked in the well equiped kitchen! We are outside and used the pool each day . Mr Riley, the concierge, is really nice and helpfull. We will comme back for sure . Jose was helpfull the first day, we had a little problem and he fixed it ! Thank you. Aruba is "one happy island" ! It's true!

    Chantal2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • By far the best value for the money, the pictures are no way close to even barely do it justice the place is amazing. If you like renting a car and getting the full experience this is it. The kitchen is more equiped than what you can imagine. The place is suuuuper safer a in an amazing neighborhood. People wrote reviews about the construction next door or hot water being an issue. TOTALY NOT. By far the best experience renting a place. More than convenient. Exceeded my expectations by a million. Go to the local market near by no need for those over estimated places and enjoy...

    Ng2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home. Near everything (Aruba is not that big of an island anyway, rental car is a must). This is great for a couple or solo travelers. You get your own pool and jacuzzi. The decor is incredible both inside and out. Luxurious and classy. This home is of great value for what you get. Thank you very much Jose!

    Your wonderful apartment is close to the airport and public transport. You’ll love your home away from home, it's in the middle of the island making it easy to reach most places. Downtown is only 5 minutes away and most beaches are 7 to 10 minute away. The place is good for couples, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups. The neighborhood is really safe and it has a very relaxing
    The pool and gazebo are shared with on other apartment on the property. You also have safe (free) parking.
  • The location of this house was great! As Moon will mention, you definitely need a rental car to get around. There is no hot water, but the water is room temperature and you get used to it very quickly. I would definitely stay here again as Moon was very receptive to any issues we had and it was a great value.

    Marianna2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, a bit out of the way but if you're driving everything will be fine. There was cutlery, herbs and coffee on arrival which was great! There are shops and restaurants in walking distance but there are a few strange dogs around so it's probably better to have a car.

    Rory2019-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great find. Close to the city and comes with all the amenities you need.

    Kevin2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Splendid house with all the amenities, a rich pool to get to get the salt of the sea .. Nice barbecue for barbecues and the sunset! If you rent a car (which are cheap) do not hesitate to rent this house

    Emerson2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Moon is a wonderful host and always available for any help that you need. Her place is in a great location Central to the island but you definitely need a car.

    Phyllis2019-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • We were very happy with our stay at Moon’s place. The house had everything we needed for our stay and was located in the middle of Aruba near the airport, therefore everything was a reasonable driving distance. Moon responded by email to all of our questions quickly and was helpful in ensuring we had a positive stay in Aruba. Thanks again Moon!

    Mike2018-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely house for a good price. Make sure you have transportation. A rental car / motorcycle / quad is a must. Swimming pool to cool off and a lovely spot in the shade to relax including 2 hammocks. Moon is very nice and responds quickly to questions. When we arrived in the evening there were already groceries ready. Super!

    Rob2018-05-12T00:00:00Z

  • Lisi was an exceptional host! One of the best experiences I've had with an Airbnb. Her and her husband went out of their way and drove us around the island and showed us all the cool stuff to explore while we were visiting. I will definitely be staying here again in the future! Thank you Lisi!!!

    Devin2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay! The backyard was a beautiful oasis. We really liked having Chromecast to watch Netflix while unwinding in bed after long days exploring the island. It was a large studio/guest suite that was new, stylish, and comfortable. (Separate from the main house and with a shared backyard, though we had it to ourselves). We had total privacy during our stay. The AC worked great, which is always important for us. Overall, it was an excellent value. We would definitely stay again in the future!

    Kristina2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lisi and Cedric have a lovely, brand new, one room apartment central to the island. We were able to scooter from one end of the island to the other with ease seeing all the sights Aruba had to offer then come home to a refreshing dip in the pool. The apt is fully separate from the main house with a separate entrance. The pool is shared with the main house, but we had it to ourselves. We highly recommend this apt for a couple like ourselves.

    Savaneta, Aruba

    This is 1 of 5 basic studio apartments. We are situated in a quiet, safe suburb of Oranjestad, centrally located on the Island. Close to downtown and the airport, 5 minutes by car. The bus stop , a supermarket and two local restaurants are a 5 minutes walk . We recommend to rent a car, if only for a few days, to visit all interesting a/o touristic places, as with the public bus system not all can be reached. A cozy beach is at 20 minutes walking distance or 5 minutes by car, as is downtown.
    Parking is on the public road in front of the premises, as we also do, with camera surveillance.
  • Gerard and Elaine were very helpful with questions when we first arrived and the stay was wonderful.

    Hidai2019-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Gerard’s place is amazing !! The accommodations were just as described and gave us a perfect home base for our stay in Aruba. Additionally, Gerard and Elaine are incredible hosts, always going above and beyond to help us feel safe or get around. They were kind enough to drive us to and from the airport, as well as take us to the police station when a friend lost her bag in a taxi. Without them or their adorable place, our stay in Aruba would not have been have as amazing. We definitely recommend and hope to return some day!

  • 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.

    Rachel2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • 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!!!

    Tracy2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place at great value. Peaceful and intimate. Added value with car rental included. Responsive to your questions and concerns in a timely manner.

    Dwaine2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Cesia2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Chelsea2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • 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☺️)

  • Lovely hosts! Made visiting Aruba so much more worth it. They were very helpful and understanding especially during a time of unease in our current world

    Taylor2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is excellent value with superb hosts. Good location with only a 15 minute walk to Surfside beach. Any issues, Haime was quick to respond. I would recommend this place!

  • 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.

    Ardell2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodation is good, but you have to walk about 15-20' to downtown.

    Nick2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great Host. Perfect Location!

    Brandon2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • An excellent place to stay, quiet, clean and very beautiful. Jane's hospitality was very good, we will definitely return. Thanks for everything!

    Oranjestad, Aruba

    Villa Googy 3A is a brand new luxury, totally private villa with a private swimming pool (with jacuzzi), 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The villa has a very comfortable outside area; the huge porch is an extension to the living room. You could sit outside all the time in the nice Aruban winds. The open kitchen is fully equipped. The villa and porch are laid with a marble floor and together with the wooden furniture, all shipped in from Bali, it gives the villa a stylish and luxurious appearance.
    The villa is provided with everything you need. The kitchen has an American fridge (inclusive ice maker), oven, stove, dish washer and other small appliances and kitchen utensils. Furthermore the villa has an alarm system for your safety, air conditioning in all the rooms and a washing machine and dryer.
    Villa Googy 3A is located in the middle of the island. Very centrally and therefore close to everything. Oranjestad is a 10 minute drive, the nicest beaches of the world only a little 15 minute drive. And on the other side of the island you will find the natural park Arikok and the natural pool. The airport is about 5 miles from the villa.
  • Sher and Kim were great! This was the perfect place for my colleagues and I to relax and chill by the pool. It is also a perfect place to take your family if you are trying to get away from all the noise and distractions that come with staying at a resort. Not only is the house updated and clean, but they are also professional and friendly Airbnb renters. The same goes for their onsite contact, Anne. Anne met us at the house when we arrived, and showed us everything we needed to know about the house. Anne was also very polite, informative, attentive and helpful. When we had questions, we would call and she would get us answers. When we needed a rent-a-car from our resort to the house and couldn't find one in time, she found us one and set everything up for us. When our travel arrangements changed unexpectedly at the last minute, Sher and Kim rearranged their own vacation schedule to suit our needs so we could still rent from them instead of having to find somewhere else to stay. It was hands down one of the best Airbnb's we've ever stayed at and when we return to Aruba, we will most definitely be renting from Sher and Kim again!!!!!!

    Walt2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great host! Comfortable beds & beautiful scenery. Definitely would stay again!

    Joanna2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sher & Kim’s place is just as described. It started with Anne reaching out prior to our arrival and providing directions to their home. We arrived and Anne was there waiting to introduce us to the home and answer any questions we had. We are a family of five and all fit comfortably in the three bedrooms. The place was clean and beds were comfortable. The pool was awesome to use in Aruba when we returned from activities. The outdoor table is great to have morning coffee or meals as a family and enjoy Aruba’s amazing weather. The home is centrally located and with a rental car, easy to get to any place in Aruba. We definitely recommend Sher & Kim’s place if coming to Aruba. Thank you Anne for your hospitality.

    Orlando2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Sher & Kim are the best hosts and are great at communication and follow-through!

    David2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place. It met all our expectations. Pool was lovely. Kitchen fully equipped. Location was great. Would stay here again

    Mj2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING STAY! My friends and I went to Aruba for the first time and this was the perfect place to experience the country. It looks exactly like the pictures and is such a stylish place. The amenities were outstanding along with the responsiveness of Sher, Kim and one of the property managers Anne. Check in was smooth, after Anne rescued us when we got lost, and all of our questions were explained well. This villa gave us the opportunity to feel and see the real Aruba while trying out all of the local eats (ALL OF THE FOOD IS AMAZING). This villa was also close to the tourist part of the island, making it a quick drive to everything we wanted to see. This is such a perfect deal and I'd love to stay here again during my next visit! Thank you Sher & Kim for giving us a home away from home!

    Ava2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home located in a quiet, safe neighborhood with a warm, welcoming, local team to greet and ensure you're settled and comfortable the entire trip's duration. The house was spotless with great natural light, modern decor, and electronics; 100% as pictured. There's also a great full-length mirror in the living room area that makes for great selfies (lol). The grounds were well-manicured and maintained multiple times during our 5 days, four-night trip. The hot tub was great at night and I enjoyed having the dining area on the verandah alongside the pool. We had all the necessary kitchen utensils to make a few meals without the need to improvise. The bathrooms were clean and stocked with towels, the bedrooms were also of the same standing. The street fighter game (which actually works) was a nice touch. It was easy to feel like a home away from home. The house was also pretty centrally located; with our rental car majority of the "must-dos/sees" was at max 10 minutes away. All in all Sher & Kim’s home wasn't just a place to stay during our vacation, it became an enhancing part of our trip. It was a very positive experience, that I definitely will recommend and revisit if the opportunity ever were to arise. Thanks again for having us!
