THE place to stay in Aruba!

What a gorgeous property! The condo was very clean, extremely comfortable and the inner courtyard is to die for - the pictures really don't do it justice! We are big on grilling, and the grill area was just wonderful; so comfortable, spacious and easy to use. The pool is lovely - the changing lights at night are hypnotic...we just sat and enjoyed, while the waterfall rained on...SO relaxing. Mike and Kim are an absolute pleasure to deal with - I actually got to meet them when we were there! Mike is made of graciousness...he dealt with some pre-trip spaz-outs with tact and aplomb, bless his long-suffering heart! His recommendation to use Royal car rental was right on target - they were excellent! Great service, great prices and a very comfy Nissan sedan for FAR less then quoted by the big rental agencies - I reccommend them as well! The condo is close to everything (you WILL need a car), and after some trial-and-error, you'll find that getting around is actually very easy. We went snorkeling on the "Octopus" - a sailing catamaran, so nice with no constant motor noise, lovely cocktails and a yummy lunch of salad, fruit and cold cuts (and believe me, that is the kind of light lunch that you want - anything heavier would make you want to veg out instead of snorkel!), went horseback riding at Gold Mine Ranch (one OFF the bucket list!) - what a DREAM, to ride on the beach! Aruba was fabulous for my 50th birthday...we'll be back...again and again!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you. I don't often have the opportunity to meet my guests, but when I do it's always fun. Kim and I are so glad you enjoyed the condo and Aruba. It's a wonderful place and, on behalf of the entire island, we'd like to welcome you back any time!
Michael and Kim
