Welcome to Aruba Dreaming - a single-family, two-story, beachfront home that's located right by the beach in Malmok.
This fully airconditioned brightly decorated home has 2 upstairs bedrooms, 3 downstairs pool front bedrooms and three bathrooms. Views from the living room, porch and upstairs master bedroom deck are spectacular!
The beach is ideal for sunbathing and the ocean out front offers some of the best snorkeling on the island. Tierra del Sol Country Club for golf, tennis and spa is a quarter mile down the road, a mile away you'll find wind- and kite-surfing, world class hotels, casinos and restaurants, and you're only six miles from downtown Oranjestad and its amazing boutiques and nightlife. Enjoy the sunset while watching the sailboats pass by. The rear of the home is completely private, and offers a large swimming pool and sweeping nature views. Daily maid service included!
The living area is very open and spacious. It consists of a fully-equipped, modern kitchen with breakfast bar, which opens up to the backyard. The dining area is directly adjoining the kitchen; and it flows into the living room which has ample sitting areas to take in the views. All of these areas are fully air-conditioned with independent controls. There is a TV/VCR/stereo in the living room.
There's a washer and dryer on the premises. And maid service is provided daily. All linens, towels, and beach towels are provided. All utilities are included except for international phone calls.
We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do. And we just ask you -- please do NOT smoke and do NOT bring pets.
And please leave a picture of your group!
We had 9 people in our party so we included the guest house because everyone wanted they're own bathroom. The house was exactly as the pictures presented.The views from the front porch are amazing, and the back outdoor living area with the pool was perfect. We used it every day! No one complained about the beds and the AC worked great but your never really inside for long. Anneke was wonderful. She set up our transportation to and from the airport,arranged for bicycles to be dropped off at the house, and was just a phone call away when we needed any information about restaurants or excursions. The cleaning woman was fantastic!!! She was sooo sweet and helpful.
Our week was packed with activities. Four wheeling ( which was a blast), sea-doos, snorkeling, motorcycle tour, and the best was the Big Mable tube ride!!! Restaurants were great, my favorites being El Gaucho, and Daniels!! Definitely recommend this home!! Bon Bini!!
We have a group of about 6 guys that come to Aruba each year to watch the Super Bowl on the beach. This year we thought we would rent a Villa with a pool. We added 2 more and also included the extra guest house. The location and the layout of the villa is just the best. I would not get the guest house next year. The whole place needs some updating. For what we paid for the place I think it should be better. The beds are just ok. The wicker furniture in the living room should be replaced. The kitchen could use some help too. Enough with the negatives. We had plenty of towels and the A/C worked great. The home has a safe and an alarm system. You can rent snorkel gear at the hotel scuba places and use them right out front of the home. They also have a nice grill for outside cooking. 4 of the rooms have king beds and one of the rooms has 2 singles. This villa is very close the Ritz Carlton. Over all, we would stay there again. Just so you know, this home is worth over 2 Million.
We just arrived home tonight after spending a week in Aruba. I already miss it. Aruba Dreaming was a great house for our group. We have 5 couples that travel together each year and I think our trip to Aruba has been one of our favorite. The pool is wonderful and relaxing. We spent hours on the back porch just hanging out. The beach is just steps away from the front of the house. You do have to cross a road but it is not dangerous and is easy to cross. The housekeeper came daily on the weekdays and quietly did her job, she was wonderful.
The location of the house was nearly perfect. It is not quite 2 miles from the lighthouse. We went running nearly every morning and felt perfectly safe. We also went north less than a mile to Arashi beach to swim in the mornings. We rented mountain bikes one day which I would highly recommend and they dropped the bikes off at the house for us. The house is within 2 miles of shopping. There are a couple of grocery stores that are close as well.
We had considered an all inclusive property but were very glad that we chose this house instead. All 5 couples had a fabulous time and agreed that we would love to stay there again in the future. Marina did a great job of making us feel comfortable.
The home is beautifully decorated, comfortable, luxurious, with every amenity, and located right at Malmok Beach where the party boats come to bring snorkelers. Has a fantastic view of the beach area and sunsets from the front of the home through floor-to-ceiling windows which surround the living area. We had a wonderful time. Anneke took excellent care of us during our 10 day stay.
We are astonished at the previous review. We saw no mold or dirt anywhere (too bad, we left our microscope at home), the pool had a few leaves, blown in by the wind which never stops, if they bothered us we would have removed them with the leaf rake which was right beside the pool. Having done a tiny bit of homework we knew without being told there is a road separating the home from the beach. Very little traffic on it, no trouble to walk across. What were the people thinking?
Issue after issue - no one told us where the keys were - no one mentioned there is a main road between the house and the beach - house was not clean upon arrival/showers need a good cleaning - kitchen is outdated (peeling formica in cabinets/rust when you open fridge/coffee maker gross) - floors were disgusting/especially around the edges - no sheets on some of the beds/seemed like sheets on others were not cleaned before arrival - shower head falling off in main bath downstairs - DVD player did not work - did not receive daily maid service as noted in the detail (when asked about it they said it was only on weekdays) - pool was dirty - no one mentioned there was a washer/dryer with the unit (in building with extra rooms), where we also ran into grill no one told us about, beach chairs/floats/coolers that we had no idea were there...when we asked to see that part of the property on the day we were leaving...feel like we were tricked by how nice the property looked in the pictures...
Great house, very comfortable, amazing location, big spaces, a/c everywhere, big pool, comfortables beds, nice and clean linings, very helpful housekeeping, wifi, cable tv, 2 fridges, dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen, barbecue, beach chairs, outdoor shower to take sand off. Take the extra guest house so you can have 7 br and 5 bath, plus an extra livingroom and an extra fridge. Also Mrs. Anneke and her daughter Marina are great property managers, with quick response to every request.
