Sunny regards,

Julia

Julia de Ruijter purchased this cottage in 2008

We built the cottage in this beautiful area of Seru Pela on the island's North Shore because of the unique natural setting and close proximity to the hotel area and beautiful beaches.

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 24, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2011
A friend and I stayed at North Shore Cottage in early December 2011. It was the best vacation EVER. I have been to Aruba before and knew that I wanted to stay along the more rustic north and east side but still be able to easily get to the busier active area. This cottage is the MOST perfect location for everything you want to do on the island! Julia is the sweetest most accommodating property owner that I have ever dealt with. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to have a wonderful vacation. I highly recommend renting this cottage for anyone who is looking for the perfect quiet and beautiful vacation spot!

Wir haben 3 wunderschöne Tage in Aruba verbracht.
Die Cottage ist voll ausgestattet. Es fehlt nichts! Es ist zwar notwendig ein Auto zu mieten. Aber es wurde von Julia auch gesagt und dann Navi-Garmin von Ihr hat uns immer zuverlässig nach Hause gebracht.
Bis zum Strand sind es 5 Autominuten oder weniger. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig und angenehm. Relax pur!
Wir können die Cottage nur weiterempfehlen. 10 Punkte mit*****!!!

Our Stay at the North Shore Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Well my husband and I just returned form the North Shore Cottage in Sunny Aruba. Our stay was fantastic! The cottage was just as it looks in the photos online. Everything you need is already there and it is so clean and everything so perfectly in it's place! We slept better at the cottage than we do at home. So peaceful, birds singing, frogs - well whatever you call that thing frogs do (rib bit?), anyway just lovely. Julia and Sjoerd were both very pleasant and helpful. The cottage guide they put together for the your stay is very informative and extremely helpful when choosing things to do from beaches to dining out. We would recommend this to everyone and we plan to come back to Sunny Aruba and we will stay at the North Shore Cottage. Thank you for a great experience!

Change of Pace in Aruba

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 11, 2010
  • Stayed: Oct 2010
If you are looking to get away from the crowds at the resorts, but still want to be close to everything, I highly recommend a stay at the North Shore Cottage. My husband and I stayed there during our second week of vacation in November. We used the chairs and beach towels when we went to Arashi Beach, which is our favorite on the island. We entertained relatives who were staying at the Marriott. They enjoyed star gazing in the evening before we drove them back to their resort. One day I left the door open while unloading groceries. I felt some extra eyes on me-an iguana who had entered the kitchen. After a little coaxing, I got the green intruder out. The experience was quite funny.
We were happy to have internet and a house phone. We figured out the best way to use the air conditioners and not be wasteful. The kitchen worked out quite well for our needs, once we figured out how to light the burners and stove.
Be sure to visit the North Shore are looking for peace and quiet and special visits from "nature."

Car: necessary

The cottage is the perfect place to retreat to at the end of an active day.

It’s very quiet and peaceful here, perfect for nature lovers. Kids love it here, too, as they can freely play outside.

A beautiful landscape with wide open spaces, unobstructed views of sunrise as well as sunset. Empty beach nearby. Lots of trails, perfect for hiking, biking. Perfect for yoga, meditation in nature. Mother nature provides the fresh ocean breeze, the rocks, the boulders, the ponds and the trails, we provide you with the mountain bikes and surfboards.

Although it will absolutely feel like it, the normal world with all of its hustle and bustle isn’t that far away. The hotels are within 3-5 minutes driving, as are the Tierra del Sol Golf Course, Aruba Racquet Club, watersport activities, restaurants, casinos and the beaches at Palm Beach.
