It was a very difficult time deciding on where to stay when traveling to Aruba. We had 6 people in our group, all with different thoughts of what the perfect place to stay should be. The Big Beach House of the Water was more than ideal for us. Everything was exactly as described online. The location couldn’t have been better! Each morning we jogged up to the light house. There was no need to pack a cooler to go to Malmok beach! When we were thirsty we walked 500 feet to our house! Literally across the street to what seemed like our own private beach with palm tree umbrellas...we did cannonball jumps off the rocks and snorkeled while finding treasures in the beautiful crystal clear waters! We watched cruiseships come in the distance, and fishing boats bring in the catch of the day, all while enjoying coffee from the porch. It was also great after swimming in the ocean to rinse off in the outdoor shower. I cannot even begin to describe the gorgeous sunsets each night, also viewed from the porch. This home actually offered more than what was listed. It was great to use the library of books, rafts, coffee pot, and even candles! The suggestions given by Kanan were true to his word, the Lighthouse restaurant was one of our best meals of the week with an added bonus of steal drum music, the car rental service even drove us back to the airport, Jennifer kept everything in order – we don’t know how she get the towels so soft, and Alfred was waiting for us with keys in hand. We highly recommend this house! Thank you Kanan for sharing with us, the memories we made are fantastic!
We stayed at the house over Spring Break with my two boys (8 and 11), wife and in-laws. It was a short drive from the airport (we rented a car) and convenient to shopping and dining with Palm Beach less than a 10 minute drive.
The house was comfortable for hanging out as a family as well as spacious enough for us to go our separate ways. It was well appointed and has everything you need if you decide to cook.
As advertised, the snorkeling across the street was amazing! The water was crystal clear and calm enough enjoy swimming and snorkeling, even for the 8 year old. If you are looking for white sandy beaches drive to Palm Beach as the terrain to get to the water is very rocky and a bit rugged.
The property was cleaned daily by the housekeeper Jenny who was delightful.
The house was exactly as advertised and I would recommend it for anyone looking to get away from the busy resorts just up the street.
This is a good house w/ a very desirable location - truly right across the street from the water. It’s on Malmok which is not great for beach sand (better for snorkeling). But the water and sunsets are pretty. The house is easily drivable to any of the main beaches (Eagle, Arashi, Palm). Kitchen is well equipped.
My main issue is the cost of utilities. I rented for 8 days (5 people) and my utility bill was $543. We were not extensive users of water. After checking the meter on day 3, we started only flushing after “number 2” and not showering every day. AC units were on only when we were there in the evening. Rates are specified in the contract, but water is priced as $50 per metric ton after the first two (I had no clue how much a metric ton is). You get the same amount of free water whether renting for 3 or 8 days. When you rent this house, you can expect a few hundred more in utility bills.
You will share this property with another house. In the back yard, there’s another small house that had renters in it. As I had paid for a house and not a resort I was hoping for a little more privacy. When using the outside shower, you’ll be in full view of the other house. The main back windows have no curtains, so the other renters can see right in to your house. To be fair, the other renters really kept to themselves. Still, it seems to negate the whole idea of true privacy that you hope for when renting a house.
No one met me at the house when I arrived. I had emailed the owner my schedule as requested and still no one was there. The house was locked so I had to knock on the door of the other renter’s house in the back. They called him. But it took a while and we just had to stand out in the sun waiting. When the property manager showed up he said the owner had not told him what time I’d arrive.
The stove wouldn’t light the first morning. I had bought $300 worth of groceries. We get up to cook breakfast and we can’t. I emailed the owner, who instead of taking my request seriously and sending someone out right away, sends me back an email telling me to light the stove. It kind of ticked me off that he assumed the fault was mine and that I had to send him multiple emails (on my internat’l data plan) to get him to fix something. He sent the property manager out and it was fixed by that evening.
The owner seemed nice enough and it is a good house, mainly due to the location. For this price, I guess I have high expectations.
Location: Right across the street from awesome snorkeling and beach access. We went to almost every beach on the west side of the island and this is the best beach access snorkeling available. You are also a hop skip and jump from the north island dunes and lighthouse.
Amenities: Other than location, the house is in a safe area, it comes with home security that you can enable when you go out and about. The bathrooms are nice and clean. The kitchen is older like most of the house but all in good clean condition. Having access to a grill outside on a fantastic front patio was huge for us. We could grill and watch the sun set over the water and ships. The housekeeper was courteous and friendly which was much appreciated. Rooms are very spacious and inviting. Free internet access was a great feature as well.
Nitpicks: More of an Aruba nitpick, but the cost of electricity and water can creep up on you (understandable for the island limitations). Be mindful of that when you stay because its extra. My only other nitpick is that we couldnt stay longer! =)
Perfect house for our family vacation. Several coves across street with sand access into ocean as well as shady areas for those less inclined to sunbathe. You can easily snorkel right across street, but we had best snorkeling about a half mile north of the property towards the lighthouse (south end of Arashi beach, in front of large yellow house at turn). Towards afternoon the pirate ships begin to hit the sea in front of the house; perfect entertainment for people watching.
The house has plenty of room. We lived on the front porch and large front family areas and found both the grill on front porch as well as kitchen were well appointed for preparing nearly all of our wonderful meals. The house is clean and very comfortable, the perfect spot to enjoy Aruba
Delivered everything that was promised. Jennifer and Otmar were very helpful and welcoming. The beach in front of the house was a little too rocky for us but Arashi, Boca Catalina and Baby Beach were easy to get to as we had a car. The view cannot be beat and the sunsets either from inside or outside the house were great.
I was glad to see that the good restaurants we enjoyed during our first visit four years ago (Linda's Pancakes, Sole Mare and Taste of Belgium) were still there.
It was a great week for us all.
The house is less than a mile from Casino, shopping, theaters, restaurants, other beach resorts and water activities. There are many activities like ATV, Dune Buggy, scooter rentals and water activities that are very close by.
Other Activities: Quad racing, Jeep excursions, boating and fishing
Golf: The golf course is about 1/2 a mile away and T times can be arranged at a great price.
