About Joe Stephens

Our families purchased the building lot at Tierra Del Sol in 2004 and it took 4 years to build our home. During the process we discovered the true meaning of 'Island Time'. Everyone needs to discover this for themselves.

Joe Stephens purchased this estate in 2008

Why Joe Stephens chose Noord

We had been traveling to Aruba for 15 years and just love the Aruban people, the pace of life, the beaches and the golf course at Tierra del Sol. When they opened the Bella Vista lots to allow for custom built homes we jumped at this chance and have enjoyed it ever since..

What makes this estate unique

Custom Built with a classic Mediterranean style exterior with a modern open living interior this 4 bedroom, with study, home features 2 grand master bedroom suites and two other ample bedrooms with 4 1/2 baths, including a pool bath with shower, private pool with fountain and waterfall. Great rooms (living areas) on each level with seating for all your guests and wonderful ocean and scenic panoramic views. Fully equipped Kitchen with seating for 10. Spa and fully equipped weight room available at additional cost.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Are you ready to fall in love?

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my friends at this amazing property March 21th thru 29th,2009. The lay-out is perfect for 2 families,one extended family or a large group of friends like the ones that I traveled with. You could certainly eat out at a different restaurant every night within minutes of this home & experience great island food, but between the fully equipped kitchen & wonderful grill available we just couldn't pull ourselves away from this relaxing home to eat out very much. It was just too tempting to lounge pool side as the sun gently set! All of the bedrooms are very large with amazing views. The views of the lighthouse was my personal favorite! It goes without saying that this home would be a golfer's dream, as you could golf every day here & then relax in your own pool or hit one of the many clean beaches.
I did walk to a beautiful nearby beach more than once, but to experience the complete island you are going to need a car. I loved taking daily walks every morning & everyone that I passed was so friendly I just felt like I lived here. We went snorkeling & I highly recommend it. I have been many times in Hawaii & there you really have to be concerned with high waves. But not in Aruba!! I was amazed at how peaceful & calm the water seemed to be every day! Which makes snorkeling & diving a dream.
I did have a few questions before I arrived just to make sure that I brought with me the things that I needed & the owner always responded very quickly to my e-mails, which really gave me peace of mind.
All I can say is that the 8 days went way too quickly & to this day I wished that I had stayed for 10 days (at least)!! It is just well worth it, but I just wouldn't take the chance of staying any place other than this home because staying here was just such a big part of why this was our groups dream vacation. I hope you make it your's too, unless it's a week that I want to come back!!

Best Villa by Far

  • 5 of 5
The Desert Dauphin by far exceeded my every expectation. Everything you see is just want you get!!!
The villa is very spacious, luxurious and accommodating. Not to mention how comfortable the furnishings are and no expenses were spared when it came to the décor in the home.
I stayed at the Desert Dauphin along with 3 other friends and I must say we are and have always been a very particular group of women. We expect to have all the comforts we are accustom to and more. We got just that at the Desert Dauphin. The Villa was spotless, the grounds were well kept, and the dishes, pots and pans were of good quality. I honestly cannot say anything negative about the Desert Dauphin. The nights were peaceful, the bedding and mattresses were of great comfort, which is extremely important to me due to some issues I have with my back. Each room had its own air condition unit and remote to regulate the air flow. I had 7 peaceful and restful nights. It is truly a villa that you will enjoy and want to come back to time and time again. I can’t wait to go back.
The Desert Dauphin is nestled within Tierra del Sol. A beautiful golf course community with a spectacular view of the ocean, lighthouse and the high rises. We had a delicious meal at the Club house our first night. The staff there was also accommodating and friendly. We didn’t get a chance to enjoy any of the other amenities in Tierra del Sol, we simply ran out of time.
While preparing for our vacation, Joe the owner answered every question we had (and we had a lot). Clifton Lugay who is the property manager, oh my goodness, was the nicest and friendliest, personable person. He was at the airport waiting for us once we arrived. He provided us with a wealth of information and was always available in the event we needed anything at the villa or around town.
We decided not to rent a vehicle; we just didn’t want to bother with the unfamiliar, (traffic, road signs, roundabouts). Instead we met this wonderful taxi owner by the name of Henry Franken, whose services we used to go everywhere on the island. Henry was always prompt, polite, friendly, a gentleman and very knowledgeable of his homeland. It was blessing to us to have Henry escort us around town and bring us safely back to the villa at any given time of the day or night. If you don’t want to worry with the driving, do yourself a favor and contact Henry once you get on the island at 592-1600.
We truly enjoyed our stay at The Desert Dauphin.

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely Amazing!! The house has great space and was well equipped for our group of 8. Never felt crowded. The house is located in an exclusive gated community with a club house that offers great amenities. Each evening we enjoyed cocktails by the pool and watched the incredible sunset views. Perfect location for a Wedding or Event to remember.

Absolutely beautiful and amazing.

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd trip back to Desert Dolphin Aruba and we hope to go back again. Staying with friends in this beautiful home made it very comfortable with plenty of room not to get in anyone's space. We spent most of our time out on the patio and in the beautiful pool. We had dinners at the wonderful Pincho's Bar & Grill in town, the Hyatt Restaurant and Tomato Charlies by the high rises. The other nights we enjoyed cooking in the gourmet, fully stocked kitchen. Shopping in town or at the Beach Plaza Mall by the high rises is wonderful. We did a wonderful snorkeling adventure by Roberto recommended to us by the owner and the property manager, Clifton was very kind and accommodating to all our needs. My husband and I would highly recommend Desert Dolphin Aruba to anyone who wants to experience a beautiful vacation in a very comfortable, elegant home in a great golf course community.

Beautiful home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
All the amenities you'd expect in the luxurious Golf Course community of Tierra Del Sol. Spend your days relaxing at the pool or take a short 5 minute ride to your choice of beautiful beaches. Fully equipped kitchen if you prefer to eat in though many fabulous restaurants are just minutes away. Don't forget to walk to the clubhouse to take in the views! There are a number of spa services available and a gym available for a slight fee. This was my first trip to Aruba...hopefully not my last!

Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Desert Dolphin Villa exceeded expectations. Joe was very responsive to any questions or inquiries we had. Clifton the grounds manager was unbelievably hospitable and made sure that we had everything we needed. The Villa is spacious and clean, the grounds and view from all angles of the villa are gorgeous and we spent many of our evenings sitting outside watching the sunset over the ocean with the rays hitting the beautiful pool.

I would highly recommend this villa, just not during what will now be our annual vacation week. :O)
