A great house and a great location!

Stayed: April 2011
I stayed at Arubahouse as part of a group of 10 adults and 5 children under 4-years-old. The house is fabulous and never felt crowded. Everyone really appreciated having their own bathrooms. I stayed with my husband and 9-month-old child in the master suite upstairs, and it is awesome! The room is extremely spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The view from the upstairs deck (and even the master bathroom) is incredible.
We all used the pool constantly. There are plenty of floats and pool toys for the kids. We brought the beach chairs when we went to the beach (a 3 minute drive away).
The maid service every other day was much appreciated. In retrospect, I’m not sure what we would have done without it! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook elaborate meals. One drawback, though, was that the dishwasher didn’t work well, so we ended up hand-washing a lot of dishes. I agree with one of the other reviews that the kitchen appliances need updating in general.
Holly (the owner) was so helpful and friendly in our email correspondences before and during the stay. We had one minor misunderstanding that she settled honorably, so I felt really good about renting the house from her. Anneke, the caretaker, was also really helpful and friendly before and during the stay.
Probably the most important thing I could say is that I would definitely stay at Arubahouse again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a glowing review! We're so pleased that you enjoyed staying in our home.
I'd just like to mention that while these guests may have preferred to drive to a beach that is 3 minutes away, our smaller beach is just a few steps from the front door. Also, all of the kitchen appliances were installed in December 2009 during our complete renovation so they should work perfectly. We make every effort to promptly repair or replace anything that is not working properly. We encourage our guests to report any issues to us so that we can take immediate action, and we send a follow up questionnaire to each guest after their stay so they can report any issues.
We continue to work hard and encourage suggestions so that ArubaHouse is your first choice for accommodations in Aruba.
