THIS PLACE WAS AMAZING! I can honestly say that it was one of the best vacations I have ever been on. I rented this property and the additional apartment for 10 days with a group of 9 people and loved every aspect of the property.
The location of the house provided many, many options for whatever we desired. From getting a rejuvenating breakfast at the beach to having some fun at night, the walk was always safe, fun, and quick. The property was also in great condition, very clean, and the property manager was very welcoming and courteous. Nine of us fit very comfortably in the house and it was a lot more spacious than I anticipated.
The pool was one of deal breakers for the house. I could not imagine renting a house in Aruba without a pool! It was a great way to spend part of the day with the family, hang out, and enjoy the beautiful weather without leaving the house. Also, the nights were always quiet, there was A/C in every room, and the beds were so comfy, that getting a good night sleep was no issue at all! The only problem was waking up early felt like Christmas morning, just because there was so much to look forward to that day.
Some things we really enjoyed about the island were the "downtown" area that was a short walk away; Arashi beach, which was very calm and relaxing - one night we were even able to see baby sea turtles make their way from the sand to the ocean!; one day we rented Jeeps and visited the other side of the island and got to see the Natural Pool, natural caves, and many more things I have never experienced before! (I definitely recommend checking that out); we also borrowed the snorkel equipment they had at the property and I saw for the first time how amazing it was to swim in the limitless aquarium that is Aruba. The fish were so beautiful and it was breathtaking seeing them so close to you.
I checked out other places during my stay and none of them could compare to the value you were getting at this Palm Beach Villa. I have already recommended this place to my friends and family and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to rent in Aruba! If you truly want to relax on vacation, this place will not let you down. It feels like a home away from home and I will be sure to visit again and again.
