4 BR/3.5 BA PVT HOME W/POOL - 5 MINUTE WALK TO PALM BEACH

Aruba House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 10

Joan and Ron

Welcome You to Aruba, Palm Beach, and the Parrots' Nest.

This beautiful home is located near the best beach in Aruba, Palm Beach, which is close to Eagle and Arashi Beaches, the California Lighthouse, Divi and Tierra Del Sol golfing, casinos, fine dining and just about every water sport imaginable, including wind/kite surfing. Walking out onto the covered patio or tiki bar you will be offered a view of a cactus grove with wild green parrots and iguana, a Brazilian stone lounging area surrounding a 463 sf (43 sm) backyard swimming pool (beautifully lighted at night), and a view of the salt pond, and in the distance, the Caribbean and its spectacular sunsets.

We are receiving inquiries almost daily, so we must honor confirmed reservations on a first come, first serve basis. The best method to inquire is email, which we check several times per day. While stays can be for as few as 5 nights during the rest of the year, we request a stay of at least 7 nights during the holiday season. The weekly rate will be prorated by night, as at other times of the year.

The living room features two sofas, two loveseats, and a dining table that seats 8. On the patio and around the pool, there are two tables that seat 10 people comfortably. Also provided is a gas grill.

Cable TV offering 57 channels is hooked to all of the TVs. In the living room there is also a 3 CD/cassette/am-fm entertainment center. And throughout the house, there is high speed Wi-Fi access through our wireless router. Also, the house has a telephone that can be used for local and international incoming calls and outgoing local calls.

If you enjoy a little gambling, the Marriott Beach Club Casino and Ritz Carlton Grand Casino are only a few minutes away. There are many other casinos just a little farther south toward the capital city of Oranjestad. Also, Oranjestad has world class duty free shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, and bars, all within a 5-10 minute drive.

There are many rental cars companies outside of the airport terminal; we recommend Tropicar or Super Car Rental for very competitive rates and excellent service.

Again, welcome to 'One Happy Island'

GREAT VACATION IN ARUBA MAY 2013

  • 5 of 5
The property was exactly as described: spacious, well maintained, clean, close to Palm Beach. The pool is clean and nice. The house is located in villas area which is very quiet. The AC system is good with separate units in each room. The owners were extremely accommodating with everything from the start to the end, they answered through e-mail within a couple of hours, and took care of small issues which came up in the house right away. The owners who are Americans established really efficient network of local people to take care of the house. Very important: no hidden fees, no surprises. Will definitely recommend this property to others

PERFECTLY DESCRIBES THIS HOUSW.

  • 5 of 5
This home was exactly as described in the listing. We spent 11 wonderful days here with 6 adults and 2 little kids - age 7 and 9 months. The pool was wonderful to have so when the baby was napping we could be in the yard enjoying the pool and the cactus field behind the house. Convenient location to amenities. Owners were wonderful to deal with. The 7 year old had no problem walking through the field behind the house to the beach. We did rent a car and checked out various beaches.

PARROT'S NEST REVIEW, GRAHAMS HOUSE

Parrot's Nest review, Grahams house
  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with VRBO. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone!
We stayed here for a week in January 2014. The beautiful house looks just like the pictures but even better (very clean, pretty decor, wonderful beds, etc.)! The house is beautiful, comfortable, very well maintained. The Grahams and their staff are very responsive and immediately took care of the few issues which came up. There were no surprises or disappointments, no hidden fees, or anything! Ron and Sunny are fabulous! Very helpful suggestions before the trip, too.
There were 7 of us (kids, to Grandma at age 82!), and the house is beautifully laid out. We never felt crowded or cramped, and enjoyed both privacy and common areas together. Plenty of room. There are 4 bedrooms (1 is like a separate mini-apartment, with its own bathroom and kitchenette.) There’s a full kitchen, open and adjacent to the living room. Each room has its own efficient AC so one can quickly control the temperature, as well as overhead fans. The kitchen is well-equipped, with everything we needed. We appreciated easily cooking some meals (oven, range, microwave, the ice machine in freezer), and the full fridge (for leftovers). The water tastes quite good, too. There’s Tiki bar, and a grill on the deck. No sooner would we think “I wonder if they have …”, and we’d find it! It was so nice to have towels, esp beach towels provided, as it saved packing space. They provided everything we needed.
The house is in a quiet residential area. Occasionally the soft thwack of a tennis game could be heard during the day, no problem. We felt safe and secure at all times, whether hanging out on the patio, pool area or upper deck, and at night, (and in fact, walking around anywhere in Aruba, too!) The grocery store was close by, at the end of the road, and had everything we needed.
The beautiful pool is very clean, with chairs for relaxing in sun, shaded, or lattice screened windbreak area. The patio, shaded by the upper sun deck, was wonderful for outdoor dining. There’s privacy as well as great views and experiences. On a few occasions, horseback riders went by. The upper sun deck gives a pretty view of the ocean, with parasailing, sailboats in the distance… The upper deck was great for sunsets and all those stars! There’s an easy path through the salt pond area behind the Marriot, on the way to the beach, takes about 5 minutes or so. All in all, a wonderful place to stay!

GREAT HOSPITALITY

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week here. It was clean and convenient. The owners were so kind as to make sure we had board games before our arrival. The internet worked very well. We had everything we needed.
We spent every evening with a bbq on the patio and a dip in the pool. The sunset's off the patio are amazing. The kitchen was well equiped for a large group when we had friends dine with us.
The owners were a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this property.

VERY HAPPY

  • 5 of 5
This place is great and it has everything you need to feel comfortable and relaxed. The house has a great layout and the owners have made sure that everything you need was there. The pool is very nice and the location is fantastic. We had a large group and everyone was happy with their sleeping arrangements. I highly recommend this rental to anyone with a large group who wants to be close to everything.

A HIDDEN GEM!

  • 5 of 5
Joan & Ron have a wonderful home which is in a perfect location. The home is meticulously kept and well laid out for a large family - all you would need are within a short drive. It's not hard to say that this is one of the best deals in Aruba and Joan/Ron are fantastic hosts-we've never had better. The views and tranquility are second to none- we'd high recommend the Parrot's Nest!

A five minute walk is Palm Beach, a beautiful white sandy beach where the the Pro Am wind-surfing tournament is held annually. There are also plenty of white sandy beaches up and down the west coast and within driving distance; most within a 10 minute drive. All beaches in Aruba are public (this includes the beaches at the hotels) and most have free public parking areas. Also, most of the hotels have umbrellas and chairs, but may charge visitors for use. Boca Catalina, one of the best snorkeling locations on the island, is only a 3 minute drive.

The public bus stop is only a 5 minute walk; the buses provide service to most of the beaches, Oranjestad, and, with connections, the south and middle parts of the island.

Other Activities: Boating, shopping, kayaking, miniature golf
