We have been visiting Aruba, the most revisited island in the Caribbean for nearly a decade. It's the beauty, safety and friendliness of this island paradise that sparked our interest in investing there... and oh yeah, it's out of the hurricane belt.

This property, which we call Aruba Escape, Aruba is particularly special to us because it is near the world famous Eagle Beach and is also close to Palm Beach. From Aruba Escape, you can spend the day at the beach, snorkeling, out shopping, driving through the national park or just touring the island and then can come home to your relaxing, comfortable and inviting home, with great living space inside and out and a beautiful blue pool to enjoy a swim before dinner or a night out on the town. Being between the two most popular beaches in Aruba gives you the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the quiet, uncrowded beaches of Eagle Beach by day and the nighttime hotspots of Palm Beach at night.
Aruba Escape is a house like no other in the Eagle and Palm Beach area. Besides the great features of the Caribbean-style home, the house is in a million-dollar neighborhood that is quiet and backs up to a park area. There is one continuous road in and out and almost no traffic.
There has a private master bedroom, with its own ensuite. The other two bedrooms share a spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower. The home has a large, fully equipped kitchen, dining and a large great room that looks out over the covered patio and garden . The patio garden features a round covered patio and open sun patio around the beautiful pool, a barbecue grill, lounge chairs and beach chairs.
There is no other house like it in the area. We are sure you will love it as much as we do!
We stayed at Palm Beach Escape and can't wait to go back. The house was so comfortable. It had everything we needed. We had coffee out on the patio each morning and cocktails at night. We spent many days on the sunny beaches in white sand, just a brief walk away. They even supplied us beach chairs and a cooler! We got a palapa (big straw umbrella) on the beach and we just took in the beauty, the sun, breezes and a few pina coladas. Their is service right on the beach! There was plenty for the kids to do along the beach and beach walk (like a boardwalk) and in the general area. Everyone had fun. Restaurants were great and Mike was a great help with any information or tips along the way. He also provided us with a great map, smartphone app and a restaurant discount card. We had it all. Booking for next December already!
Our home, Aruba Escape is located in a quiet residential neighborhood called Bubali, across from the popular Eagle Beach area and just down the road from Palm Beach. It's just a short distance to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants, casinos, the theater, and much more.
Other Activities include ATV rentals and tours, catamaran, sky diving, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling, wave-runners, helicopter tours, a submarine ride, Arikok national park, nature hikes through the National Park, and so much more.

Can I Google-Map the location?
Aruba does not use street names to the extent that most countries do. Many sections of Aruba have names, but the individual roads do not. This makes Google mapping very difficult. The map page of our website shows where the home is located. As you see, it is close to Eagle Beach.

The U.S. dollar is accepted everywhere throughout the island. The local currency is called the Aruban Florin (AFL). $1 = AFL 1.75 - One U.S. Dollar is equal to 1.75 Aruban Florin.
