My husband and I recently retired and decided to rent a villa in Aruba so that our adult children could join us as their schedules allowed. Our first choice did not work out, so Anneke the manager found us this villa, for 10 glorious days. It was one of the most incredible vacation rental we have ever had. It is a very spacious, modern yet in a tropical style home. It was clean and well maintained. This place is steps across from the ocean and in walking distance to the beaches along the road. My family loves snorkeling. Catalina and Arashi beach areas are well known for this. Sometimes you have to compete with folks from the cruise ships but you are in control of your time. You are right there and can pick your spot to dive, swim and snorkel. That area right across the street from your doorstep is one of the best for snorkeling.We rented a car but after a few days, really did not need it as the bus passes by the villa several times per day. Even though we were on a main road it was always quiet. Note this is a very clean beautiful area that felt safe enough for sunset walks along the roads and at different times during the day. The kitchen is large with all modern appliances. All the rooms ware spacious and very private, comfortable and well suited for large groups or families. We loved being able to use the side deck by the kitchen at breakfast, the back deck by the pool at dinner and the front porch for watching the sunset and relaxing anytime during the day with a nice cool beverage and a book. The pool area is spacious and private. There is always a cool breeze there no matter how hot the day is. We really appreciated the fact that the owners provided beach chairs, coolers and large beach towels. Beach chair rentals can be at least $5 per person per day so our family benefited from having those chairs available. Aruba is a lovely island, however having a fantastic home to enjoy it made this vacation more memorable than any we have for several years. It was such a nice feeling to be able to tumble out of bed for an early morning swim before breakfast everyday. Thank you Anneke for organizing this wonderful unforgettable vacation for my family. From our first email last year till the day we left the villa you have given us top notch customer service. We will definitely recommend your services and this place to all our family and friends. Looking forward to our return.
