Staying in this Bungalow felt like coming home. My husband and I lived in the Colony 30 years ago (he was born there – my family was there for 5 years) and were so excited to have our adult children come see what it was like to live there. Thanks so much, Erna and Theo, for making us feel so welcome. We loved every aspect of staying in the bungalow. From walking in the door to seeing the beautiful ocean right off the patio, feeling the wind on our faces while swinging in the hammocks, sitting out on the patio and just listening to the early morning sounds or the late night waves, comfortable beds and spacious living, everything we could have needed in the kitchen and more. Everything shown in the listing was exactly as it was depicted.
The men enjoyed fishing off the dock and grilling, while the ladies enjoyed the sun and water. We did our best to keep sand out of the house The outdoor shower and hose were perfect for that goal. The beach chairs were wonderfully comfortable and used in various places on the island. There was so much to do that we will, without a doubt, be back to do it again, but for longer, and next time just spend more time relaxing. We rented an SUV from Econo and were able to see many of the places we used to visit (and not all paved roads!). We do recommend Arubaville as another place to go eat and enjoy a sunset. From a very selfish standpoint we don’t want to recommend the home to anyone so we can ensure we can rent it again next year, but for Erna and Theo we give it high marks and cannot imagine anyone not enjoying every minute of their stay there. The owners were available if needed, and so gracious. Thank you!
