Mangel Halto beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Enjoy this spacious three bedroom, three bath house with its’ breathtaking view of the Caribbean! Share easy conversation on the beautiful open back veranda, which is constantly cooled by the trade winds. Have a refreshing beverage on your own front patio overlooking the Caribbean.

There is a larger beach tucked beyond a little stand of trees, complete with palm umbrellas to shelter you from some sun. The weather is fairly steady at 80 degrees with a constant trade wind, though not as strong as in the high rise area. 'Spanish Lagoon' is home to a wide variety of beautiful fish for the beginner as well as the snorkel and scuba enthusiast. It is the premier dive and snorkel site on the island. Take a stroll on the bank or pause at the concrete bench & table of the water’s edge right in front of your vacation paradise.

Aruba is a 52 week island. With less than 20 inches of rain a year, the weather is near perfect year round.

Your house will accommodate six people privately or up to nine with the included day bed and queen size air mattress. Bring the whole family or just enjoy a relaxing vacation for two! If the answer is location, location, location, we've GOT IT!

We have tried to incorporate everything we would want if we were visiting home away from home. Check out the Amenities Page for the full list of conveniences this house has to offer! Come back again and again to see what has been added.

Guestbook comments from the owner
WOW! What a place! There was not a bad beach or restaurant on the island. Baby Beach & Arashi were great for snorkeling(along with "right out front"). The Flying Fishbone, Marina Pirata, & B55 to name a few were our picks for eating. All were great. From the Rocky North Shore to the Beaches, it will be a place to come back to.......

We met through e-harmony late in 2004. Fell in love immediately. We married in March of 2006 & came to Aruba for our honeymoon. GetAwayAruba is the result of that trip.

Debbie purchased this house in 2006

Welcome to our little piece of paradise. We came to this “happy island” in March 2006 for our honeymoon. We loved the weather, the food, and the people. We didn't want to leave. We drove 350 km during that visit, searching for a place to come back to again and again.

Spaans Lagoenweg 43 is that place.

The open view from the back veranda, right through the great room, across the front lanai, beyond the beautiful gardens to our little stretch of beach and into the inviting lagoon. This three bedroom rancher is nestled in a small residential community. The neighbor folk are friendly and helpful, as we found all natives to be.

There is a larger beach tucked beyond a little stand of trees, complete with palm umbrellas to shelter you from some sun. The weather is fairly steady at 80 degrees with a constant trade wind. The lagoon is warm enough to just “walk right in”. It is like having a large shallow pool with no chlorine needed. There is a coral reef at the outer perimeter, home of many beautiful fish. A snorkel experience that you can walk to!

We had a great time in Aruba. The house has everything you need for a wonderful vacation in Aruba .Snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler bag water shoes in all sizes ,and a bender for your cool refreshing drinks! We enjoyed eating out at the Zeerover restaurant close by the house. We loved Ricardo's on the beach by Mathews . Spendy but well worth every dollar. Happy hour is from 4 to 6 and its buy a drink get a drink , the dirty banana was like having the best milkshake ever. The lamb shops were excellent as well as the coconut scallops. My son loved the fact that you could rent ATV's and ride them on the main roads.

This was our BEST family vacation EVER - spent in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our first visit to Aruba and we are ready to go back already! The first week we stayed at the Marriott for a business reward trip and the second week was spent with our family in Debbie and Steve's wonderful home on the quiet part of the island. Their large home (3 bedrooms, 3 baths) is close enough to visit all the attractions and airport, but also away from the tourists and craziness of the high-rise and downtown areas. We went out for dinner every night and the seafood is amazing! Our favorites were Marina Pirata (very close to the house), Pinchos Bar & Grill, Flying Fishbone (wonderful atmosphere), and even had great fun and food at Iguana Joes! Everyday was an adventure! We are scuba divers - so we went on many dives and many snorkeling trips. There is great snorkeling and even a wreck directly in front of the house at the edge of the reef (Mangel Halto). It was so much fun to jump in our van and explore the different parts of the island each day. We really enjoyed the caves. The roads are not well marked, but after a few days of exploring, the island became pretty easy to navigate. One of our favorite excursions was a snorkel cruise (The Dolphin) located in front of the Hyatt. For $40/person we snorkeled at the Antilles Shipwreck and Boca Catalina reef. We saw an eel, octopus, starfish, and thousands of fish. They opened the bar early and served fruit and sandwiches. It was great fun with a slide off the back of the sailboat and a rope swing in front! We also all got free I Love Aruba T-Shirts! We found the locals on the island to be very polite, friendly, and welcoming! We absolutely loved the front porch of the house, and spent every morning and evening enjoying the views! Another bonus to visiting Aruba is that US Customs is located in Aruba. No long waits in Miami, Orlando, or Atlanta fighting the US Customs lines. Once you leave the island, your suitcases are sent directly to your home destination! All in all, this was our best family vacation yet! Thanks so much to Debbie and Steve for letting us enjoy your home in Paradise!

Excellent House and Beach

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from our 1st visit to Aruba. We were a Family of 8 ranging from 2 yrs-83 yrs old.
We had a great time. This house is great-spacious ,fully- equipped with all your vacation needs and perfect location centrally located on the island. We think our beach was the best-very unique in the mangroves and private.
We had excellent meals at Maria Piratas(down the street),Zeerovers(fun local hangout),B-55s,Papiamentos(expensive) and La Grandja(cheap family style).The homemade ice cream is yummy at The House of Cakes. Barracuda was delicious and we grilled Mahi Mahi at home.We went to Baby Beach and Eagle Beach but they were too crowded for us. We went to the caves in the National Park ,hiked the Hooiberg and had the best time snorkeling with SeaBobs-Highly recommend this-they will pick you up at The Ritz. I recommend not renting from Avis-they didn't have a van for us that was reserved and confirmed and they were very rude .Don't take any valuables or keep them with you at all times. No good Souvenir shopping but most of the Arubans are very friendly and speak an assortment of languages. Marie is very sweet and Debbie is very helpful with information.
I would recommend taking a road map-streets aren't well marked. I got a good one on Amazon.
This is a great house to stay .We were so thankful we didn't stay in the high or low rise area-very congested.
Thanks Debbie and Steve for opening up your beautiful home to us.

We LOVED it !!!

  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Aruba could not have been better. We wanted to be away from the hotel area and this location was great. We really enjoyed meeting the local people. The owners of this house make sure that everything you need is there and they respond quickly. We were very comfortable and felt safe all the time. The view from this house is to die for, every day was perfect. We will definitely go back to Aruba again.

Location is the best!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house, especially the view from the front porch where we enjoyed morning coffee or a glass of wine as we watched the sunset! The location was convenient to everything, about 20 minutes from the airport. Across the street is a lovely beach where we spent many relaxing hours, but we also loved Baby Beach and hiking in the national park. The house is large and comfortable with wireless, cable TV, snorkeling and beach equipment. Several grocery stores nearby. We were there during week of New year's 2014 and I would suggest dinner reservations-we loved the Flying Fishbone, El Gaucho's, Madame Janette's and Marina Pirata. We also cooked local seafood which was very good. The owners were wonderful as was Marie who cleaned the house.

Aruba Vacation - April 2013

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Aruba and this house did not disappoint. The central location on the island is perfect for getting around anywhere you would like to go, and the snorkeling at Mangel Halto Beach is the best on the island. We bought lots of fresh fish at the Centro Di Pesca at the end of the road and cooked at the house almost every night. It was really nice staying in a local neighborhood instead of the Las Vegas style atmosphere of the hi-rise hotel district. We even had our own private little beach just five steps down the cliff across the street.

Debbie and Steve, thank you for your hospitality and expeditious responses to our inquiries. We got a lot of use out of the beach chairs you provided. We would highly recommend this house for those who would like a relaxing vacation in paradise.
