This was a great trip. The house was perfect for us. Working with the owner for logistics and payment was professional and quick.

We arrived to a clean, well equipped house. Everything was in working order. We met the owner's mother, she is a great host that goes out of her way to make sure you are settled in. She gave us tips on local resturants that were spot on. She gave us her local number to call if we had issues, we never needed it.

Understand that you are at the opposite end of the island from the high rise hotels. We appreciated the "away from the hotels" experience. We visited a different beach every day, but we started and finished every day at Rodgers.

We used the outdoor patios daily. The night breezes were perfect. I never saw a flying insect.

The living room furniture is new"ish", dining room table is nice but we ate outside, and the beds were very comfortable. There are plenty of back up linens, and the kitchen has all the necessities to cook in if you want to.

Locally - I food shopped at the MACRO and dined at Costa Riba twice (excellent seafood).

I think the price point on the home is appropriate. I would recommend the house to friends and family.

Great home away from home if you're looking to enjoy Aruba while seeking peace and quiet away from the busy hotel area!!!
The home and its amenities are exactly as described by the owner and the pictures are mostly accurate (some furniture upgrades and changes, but no major differences at all).
We were a group of 13 (9 adults, 4 children) and all of us had a wonderful time. All of us had a place to sleep and didn't need to use sleeping bags. The house is big enough so that a group of our size was still able to move around without feeling like sardines in a can. We would rent this location again without any hesitation. When we arrived to the house for a quick tour, we met with the owner's mom who is the sweetest lady you can imagine. She showed us around, told us where everything was and came to check up on us once during our stay (which was perfect!).
My contact with the owner was also excellent, I got quick responses to all of my messages and have no complaints. Transactions were totally transparent, no questionable practices at all.
All in all a great location, great stay, easy access to Rodger's and Baby beach, and within driving distance from Oranjestad and the Hotel area.

Our family of 6 adults returned to Debra's family home for a 3 visit in 2013. We normally spend 2 weeks in the Palm/Eagle beach area and a 3rd wk at the "quieter" end of the island.

As with all visits, everthing went smoothly, from the rental process, check in, and Carmen's follow up through out the week to ensure all was well with us & the home. This house is as clean and comfortable as "being home". Each year Debra has made home improvements and upgrades i.e. ceiling fans in living/dining area, new flat screen TV, clothes dryer, new dining & patio furniture, sofa, 3 & 4th BR beds.
Sunsets fr Roger's beach a daily ritual. Rum Reef,@ JADS Dive Shop, (Maureen makes the best cocktails) also good spot for a bite to eat or watch sunset - Costa Riba is a real FIND (reasonable prices, good menu variety and caring owners & staff) - both places are great for meeting locals and visiting acquaintances. We also enjoy Marina Pirata for atmospher & very reasonable prices. Zeerover is the place to pick out fresh fish (as fisherman come in for the day) & shrimp to take & cook @ home or eat there. Did not realize Hollywood Smokehouse had moved fr San Nicholas to Palm Beach- was very good in 2012 - would recommend it for those @ the LoHi rise area. This home will remain our 1st choice for return visits.

Great time in Aruba

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent 2 fantastic weeks at this house. I brought my two little ones and the grandparents and there was more than enough room. The house was great and it was a quick walk to Rodgers beach, we often walked to Baby Beach though which was about 10 minutes away.
When we arrived there was bread/juice/cheese and coffee waiting! There are grocery stores everywhere in Aruba so it was easy to find food.
This house is nowhere near the resorts as advertised, we went a couple times to see them and it took a little over 30 minutes to get there. We really liked that it was quiet, there was often nobody at Rodgers beach when we were there. There are also plenty of good restaurants on this side of the Island; Costa Riba was great, and Flying Fishbone is a must.

Thanks so much for a great two weeks!

Wonderful property for two families of four

1st time in Aruba. This house is as advertized, was very comfortable for 8 of us. Appreciated being away from the hustle and bustle of the city area. Spent many days at Baby Beach, packed our own drinks and snacks. Our FAVORITE restaurant on the island is 5 minutes away, Costa Riba. A must visit, we ate there 4 times. (send our love to Kamini!) Our overall experience would have been higher if we prepared better for the potential mosquitos on the island. Once the wind picked up, applied bug repelant, and lit bug candles, that defiantly helped. We would return to this house.

Aruba Vacation

I have recently returned from another visit to my favorite island. I must agree with everything positive that has been written by others regarding staying in this house. The house itself is wonderful and extremely well stocked with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The owners are fantastic to interact with as well. The rental process with Debra went extremely smooth and the welcome from Carmen was so friendly and sweet. She took such good care of us, and having the groceries and cold water for our first night was so thoughtful and much appreciated! I always stay away from the tourist area so I can interact and stay quietly with the locals and this house is perfect for that. I highly recommend renting this property anytime you want a quiet and beautiful trip to Aruba.
