My family of four-2 twenty-somethings-stayed at Villa Calabas to celebrate both kids college graduations in 2014. We all really just needed someplace quiet and relaxing by the time we arrived and Villa Calabas was perfect. It is not a fancy upscale place inside but it is clean and well maintained and has everything you need. The outdoor living areas are amazing. View is just incredible, the pool is great, the landscaping is fantastic. It is wonderfully quiet and there are plenty of places for sun-lovers and shade seekers alike. JP and Eve were very helpful and always available when we needed something. We all appreciated the welcome beers and the stop by the grocery store on the way to the house. We rented snorkel equipment one day-nice to just be able to rent as needed and easy to pick up from the office as we drove by on our way to the beach. Definitely rent a car-nothing is far away in distance but driving times will be longer than you think since roads aren't well marked and aren't always where they appear to be on the map. Just know you'll probably get briefly lost but go anyway! Friday and Saturday nights the traffic to get to the high rise resorts from the house is very heavy. Our favorite restaurant was Papiemento's. Great food, service and amazing setting. Make reservations! We also enjoyed Barefoot, Driftwood (hard to find though) and the setting and food at Pincho's-the service was not good at all but they were very busy. We weren't super impressed with Wacky Wahoo's-might have just been an off night for them-but still worth going. We also enjoyed Baby Beach (go to the little food shack for drinks-much less expensive there than the larger restaurant), Arashi Beach and Palm Beach (not nearly as crowded as we expected). The wind died in mid afternoon the week we stayed and it got a little buggy by the pool so we'd just pack the cooler and head to a beach. I definitely recommend Villa Calabas!
Villa Calabas has its own individual and unique style. You will not find any similar
villa on the island. The design is perfectly matching the specific local conditions such
as wind, high temperatures and intense sunlight.
It is located in a very smooth and silent neighbourhood with amazing views over the island.
There is no compacted housing in this area. This fact guarantees a very high level of privacy and the lack of disgusting boundary walls.
The interior design is according to an open space living concept that gives you a very relaxed feeling of freedom. The villa is really completely equipped. You will find everything what is needed to have great vacations. Mattrasses are in very good condition and there are plenty of towels / linens, and so on ... .
Being on a dry island you will be surprised about the outside area of Villa Calabas. There is a
lot of vegetation. They have palms, giant cacti, trees, hibiscus, bougainvillea, ... .
In addition, you will see dozens of very colourful lizards and even huge iguanas.
Do not miss the beautiful birds that will be around the villa every morning.
Last but not least there is a really friendly and helpful Team around and with JP and Eve.
We really love this place and we want to come back next year for our honeymoon.
This is a true 5*-location.
This review is a little late as our stay was almost 5 months ago, but the entire experience was great! JP was extremely helpful and fun to chat with. The home was like having your own tropical resort! It was clean and had all the amenities you would want to have at your own home. We cooked many meals there, we especially liked grilling out next to the pool around sunset - there are breathtaking views. I really cannot say there was any negative to this rental, only thing that some may mention is that it is a bit off the beaten path to get to (which we didn't mind at all, it was a fun ride in the jeep and only 5-10min from the beach and tourist areas)! Thank you again JP!
Our trip to Aruba was highly anticipated after a brutal winter in Canada. We looked forward to the beaches, snorkelling, horseback riding and windsurfing. We rented a car and planned to explore the island and all the various sites such as Arikok National Park, the caves, Ayo Rock Formations and the eastern coast and all it's natural beauty. We did all of these things, and everything was fantastic, but the real highlight of our trip was our house! After morning and early afternoon adventures we would stop by Super Food, grab something fresh for the BBQ, head home and the kids (9ys and 13ys) would jump in the pool and my wife and I would enjoy a beverage in the late afternoon sun. Perfection! The tunes would be of our choice and we could always find a deck chair, unlike some hotels we have stayed at. Dinner would follow on the upper terrace and the sunsets were spectacular.
I would strongly recommend this property, our host J.P. was very informative and down to earth. After our long journey to Aruba from Buffalo, we drove to the Sunset office to check in. Out of habit, the first thing I did was take out my wallet, the first thing J.P. did was say "can I get you a cold beer?!" It was clear right from the beginning that this was going to be a different experience! When J.P. learned that my daughter loves animals he dropped by one afternoon with his dog Spock for her to meet, clearly he is committed to his guests having a great time.
We will be going back to Aruba, and when we do, we will be staying in this house!

This was our first trip to Aruba and Villa Calabas couldn't have been a better choice. It had all the comforts of home, plus its own private pool with a priceless view. If you are looking for a fantastic place to stay that is quiet, spacious, and close to everything you'd want to do...Villa Calabas is the place to stay!
We are planning our next trip already and Villa Calabas is without a doubt where we will be.
Its been almost two months since our stay and looking back at the pictures and thinking about our experience is almost emotional!!
The house is pristine and absolutely everything that I hoped it would be and then some.
Despite home rental not being our first option (we had been robbed at a vacation rental in the USA) the pictures of this house kept grabbing my attention and we decided to book.
As the date approached I looked at the pictures more and more and continued to wonder if the house rental was the right choice. I worried about our security, airport pickup arrangements etc etc. (this is a little different than walking up to a check in counter). As the date approached I checked in with JP and Eve and they were overly responsive which put many of my concerns at ease.
When we arrived at the airport my concerns continued to dwindle as literally within 30 - 40 minutes of exiting the plane, we had been picked up, gone through the car rental process, met up with JP and EVE and were following JP over to the house.
My excitement grew as we arrived, the outside and grounds were beautiful. The inside, the outdoor foyer area, the pool everything was perfect. I was slightly concerned about the temperature in the house as it was warm and I am very hot natured, but each room has its own ac unit and after getting them running for a few hours it was almost to cold!
As you can imagine security was one of my main concerns but the house is surrounded by a stone wall/fencing and "aruba woods" which is cactus and other plants that literally would rip a person to shreds if they tried to get through it. On top these "features" the house is equipped with a state of the art alarm system that JP thoroughly explained how to use it. All of this combined made my security concerns dwindle to nothing!
The house has all amenities that you would need and more. The grill , outdoor patio and upstairs sitting areas are spectacular for having awesome times. In fact it is so awesome/beautiful that we ultimately ended up canceling most of our dinner plans so we could enjoy the house every night.
If I had to point out a negative there would be only one, and that is that the beds are a little hard, certainly not the worste ever but this is the closest thing to a negative that I can come up with.
JP and Eve are awesome host!! Very attentive to your needs but out of the way if you don't need them!!
STOP THINKING/LOOKING AND JUST BOOK IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
