PROPERTY DETAILS AND DESCRIPTION

Welcome to Aruba Escape, Near Eagle Beach, Palm Beach, Restaurants, Nightlife and just 3 minutes from downtown Oranjestad.

On the beautiful leeward coast of Aruba, just outside the popular and historic low-rise hotel district, Aruba Escape is your very own private Caribbean villa near one of the world's top-10 beaches, Eagle Beach and just as close to Palm Beach. With its soft sand, turquoise-blue water and amazing sunsets, you'll experience Aruba at its finest!

From Aruba Escape you are also only minutes from downtown Oranjestad, Palm Beach, Boca Catalini, Hadicurarri Beach (the famous kite-sailing and windsurfing beach), Arashi Beach and only 20 minutes from Baby Beach. Shopping, fantastic restaurants and eateries, casinos, movie theaters and much more are all within minutes. You will find dozens of activities, including golf, every imaginable water sport, the California Lighthouse, breathtaking views of the windward coast of Aruba, and downtown Oranjestad, the capital city.

Your vacation escape is a traditional Caribbean-style villa, complete with arched windows and doors. This single-story home with over 2000 square feet of living space was designed in classic Aruban style, with nothing but comfort and convenience in mind. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 custom baths, a large, fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and a round dining area overlooking the pool, gardens, covered patio and much more. The home features a large patio and garden area for relaxing, barbequing, sunning and drinking your favorite blender drinks. Yes, the blender is included, along with a barbeque, chaise lounges, beach chairs, coolers and everything you need for a good time at home or at the beach.

Your villa is air-conditioned in the living area and all bedrooms and features cable TV and high-speed internet.

With both inside and outside dining and eating space, lounging and living space, cooking and bar space, we give you an Aruban experience like no other.

It's the perfect location to experience Aruba's terrific weather and famous breezes, both day and night. Since Aruba is outside the reach of hurricanes, you can enjoy blue skies and temperate breezes with 88 degree temps all year long. There's no bad time of year to visit Aruba!

The area one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Aruba and is very safe and very conveniently located for visitors to get to all the popular attractions. There are local sports bars, a famous martini bar, a great beach-side mojito bar... and our favorite - Bugaloe Pier Bar, where you can sit over the water and watch the sunset then listen to live music and dance into the night, all while floating over the Caribbean Sea... It's a stay you will never forget - we guarantee it!

Whether you spend the day on the beach, cruising on a catamaran or traveling the island, you'll come home to a beautiful villa of your very own.

About Michael

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.

We're from Pennsylvania, but have been renting property in Aruba for over 8 years and continue to grow our portfolio of rentals homes because we love the business of 'vacations'.

Through this listing and listings on VRBO and and other rental websites, in addition to our own websites, we have made the process of renting as easy as possible for our guests, who we know are just looking for an affordable vacation in a great location without a lot of aggravation. The rates you see are the rates you pay. We don't tack on added taxes, cleaning fees or utility surcharges, like many rentals.

We try to keep it simple, and our success shows in our reviews. The reviews that have been been made by past guests of our properties reflect their experience with us, with their stay at our property and with Aruba. They are listed not only on our website but on public rental websites and they speak for themselves. In fact, we have the most total number of reviews on HomeAway and VRBO, the world's largest rental websites, which is more than any other rental on the island. We encourage you to check us out at the website link listed below or learn more about us on our Linked-In page (because you should know who you are renting from) or shoot us an e-mail and ask away. We'd be happy to answer any questions or concerns you have about traveling to Aruba or about our properties. I think you will find our properties to be the best value around. That is why we use the word GUARANTEE!

Well, life is short so be sure to use one week of it in Aruba!

Happy Travels,

Mike and Kimberlie

Michael purchased this house in 2012

Why Michael chose Palm Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

BEST VACATION SPOT EVER

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect and truly a home away from home. This is the second property we stayed at that Mike owns and manages. The location could not have been better (Well the other one was great too). Both were close to beaches, shopping, casino, bars and restaurants and just 15 minutes from the airport.

The property itself is beautiful, well appointed and very well-maintained. The bathrooms are quite large and very modern, beds are comfortable, and the house is equipped with everything and anything you might need to make your vacation stay comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable.

The pool was spectacular. When home we spent most of our time in and around the pool and on the patio. The restaurant suggestions and top ten lists provided by Mike before our stay came in so handy. It took all the risk and guesswork out of what to see and do and where to eat. We were armed with all the information we needed for the perfect Aruba vacation. What a great stay, great vacation and kudos to Mike for making his vacation homes so family-vacation friendly! We loved kicking back, putting our your feet up and really, really relaxing and enjoy the beauty of Aruba. We can’t wait to go back! Thank you!

Privacy galore!

  • 5 of 5
This house is a wonderful place to stay in Aruba! Close to amenities and the best beach on the island- Eagle Beach! Loved the pool and had everything you need for a clean comfortable life away from the crowded hotels on the beach. Loved the Pelican and Bugaloe for pier sunset dining. Driftwood in Orangestad was great! Michael was a fabulous host, letting you know everything you need before you go to have a great time! I can't wait to return and bring friends and family along!

8 amazing nights to relax and recharge

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Eagle Beach villa for 8 amazing nights. The location was great, about a mile from Eagle beach and a large grocery store. The villa had an open layout and we felt right at home. The kitchen was nicely updated and clean. The Beds were comfortable and the air conditioning units kept us nice and cool for sleeping. During the day we would open up the windows and patio doors to enjoy the refreshing breeze and trade winds. Our favorite part of the day was returning from Eagle beach and then relaxing in the villa's private pool. The owner Michael was really easy to work with and always provided quick responses to our questions. Will definitely be returning soon.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Michael, for sharing your home. The beautiful property was a great home base for our long weekend getaway. The villa is located in a great spot only a short drive to most local attractions and grocery stores. We enjoyed the pool and the patio. We spent our days on Palm Beach and Eagle Beach. The villa owner, Michael, is very responsive and helpful. The listing is accurate, the property is clean and well maintained. Would definitely recommend this property to friends!

Car: recommended

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.

HERE ARE ANSWER TO THE MOST FAQ'S:

How close is the property to the beach?

Just outside the low-rise hotel district, 1 mile to the beach...an easy walk, bike or drive. All beaches are free and parking in plentiful.

Do you provide beach chairs?

Yes. We provide a limited number of beach chairs and a cooler. Beach towels are not provided.

How far are you from the airport?

A 10-15 minute drive.

Are there any additional costs or cleaning fees?

No! The rates you see are the rates you pay. No cleaning fees or utility surcharges.

Are there additional sleeping accommodations?

Yes. There is an optional guest suite which features a kitchenette, full bath, queen-size bed, and cable TV. There is also a queen-size air-bed available.

Is a deposit required to rent the home?

Yes, a $200 refundable security deposit. Proudly, we have never had to keep a deposit.

Do we need to rent a car?

It is strongly recommended to rent a car. Taxis are very expensive and there is a lot to see and do all over the island. There are 5 great beaches within 2-3 miles and dozens upon dozens of sites and activities throughout the area.

Will my cell phone work on the island?

Yes, and there are phones for rent at the airport. There are no hard-wired phones at the house.

What is the best time of year to travel to Aruba?

Any time of year is a great time of year to visit Aruba. The weather is consistently beautiful (88-92 degrees) with a comfortable, steady breeze. Summer is getting more and more popular, so reserve early. We do sell out July and August.

What do I do if I want to reserve the home?

Simply send us an e-mail and let us know what dates you would like to reserve. We'll e-mail you a reservation agreement.

What days can I check-in and check-out?

Any.

Will you hold my dates while I shop for airline tickets?

Yes, just e-mail us and we'll hold your dates for up to 48 hours while you shop for airfares.

What is the best way to shop for airfares?

You can search airfares of all carriers at once and use the 'expand travel options' to show fares for up to three dates before and three days after your chosen dates. It will show all flights, rates, and date ranges. We recommend booking through the airlines website, however, rather than through Orbitz.

Do you provide maps and information on Aruba?

Yes. There will be information about attractions, restaurants, tons of activities, a map and discount coupon book and brochures.

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.

What currency do I use?

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.

Is the drinking water safe?

Aruba’s water meets the highest quality standards of the World Health Organization and is distilled in the world’s second largest desalination plant. When you buy bottled water in Aruba you are buying tap water.

What is the drinking and gambling age?

18.

Are there medical facilities?

There are two hospitals. If you are on medication, be sure to bring all your prescription medicine with you. Foreign prescriptions cannot be filled in Aruba.

Service Charge and Tips:

Some restaurants have a service charge, which can be deducted from your usual tip.

Shopping Hours:

Downtown Oranjestad, Main Street, which is good for daytime shopping, is open 9 am - 6 pm. Eagle and Palm Beach Malls and Hotel Areas are open night and day and have restaurants, clubs, nightlife, casinos and are open well past midnight.

When leaving Aruba:

US Customs and Immigration Aruba provides the services of the Department of Homeland/Security/ U.S. Customs and Protection (USCBP) for all passengers departing on flights to the U.S. To allow sufficient time to clear both Aruban and US procedures which include Transportation Security Administration (TSA) mandated screening of passengers and luggage, passengers are requested to be at the airport 3 hours prior to departure.

Electricity:

The voltage in Aruba is 120 volts, the same that is used in North America. No adapters are needed.

If I'd like to hold the reservation while I shop for airfares, what do I do?

Just send us an e-mail and let us know.
