Mike and Kim
Michael purchased this house in 2012
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!
He had the please to stay at this property for a week. The house is super clean and well-maintained. The owners did a tremendous job decorating and make the house feel like home. The house is super close to the beach and the supermarket. I had never used home away before and I have to say I was a bit nervous but I was pleasantly surprised
The place was very close to Eagles beach and parking there was not a problem. The beach was beautiful and not crowded. The grocery store is close to the property and so was our two favorite resteraunts. Madame Jeanette's and quinto de Carmen. We also cooked several meals in the house and we. Used the barbiq use. The weather is beautiful and we want to return with my children and Granchildren but we would need a larger place.
This home was well located, 1 mile to the beach. There is a large grocery store close by. The home has a beautiful coverd patio with a large table, perfect for morning coffee or dinners.
The bedrooms were large and the mattresses were very comfortable. The yard was filled with gorgeous flowering schrubs and landscaping. The pool was very inviting with adequate number of lounge chairs. Our party of 7 guests enjoyed our stay in Aruba! Thank you for sharing home with us!
What an enjoyable vacation. Home was wonderful - just as described. Plenty of room for the 6 of us. Super close to grocery store, Eagle and Palm Beach and not far from everywhere we wanted to do. Will need to rent a car to see as much as possible. Very easy island to drive on. The house was everything we could have asked for. Great location, very clean and comfortable, safety never a concern, and the little addons like a cooler and beach chairs were great. Had the best time connecting with each other over breakfast at the outdoor table and planning our day. Thank you Micheal for providing a fantastic home for us to enjoy. Would not hesitate for a moment in recommending Micheal's home or staying at again.
This past December we stayed at the house known as Aruba Escape, just before staying a week at Palm Beach Sunset Villa.ape. Both houses are owned and managed by Mike. I wrote a review (5 stars) for each. Mike was extremely helpful and was a great resource for rental car information, information about travel and all the different activities there is to do and see in Aruba. He even provided us with a Top 10 list of must-do activities and a restaurant and attraction guide.
His house, the subject of this review which he calls Aruba Escape, was perfect for us. It was in a million-dollar neighborhood close to Palm Beach but even closer to Eagle Beach. We spent almost every day at Eagle Beach then came back and enjoyed to beautiful pool at the house. The lounges for the pool and the beach chairs Mike provides guests for the beach were very comfortable. Usually when we rent those things are afterthoughts for most owners (junk), but Mike clearly pays attention to detail at his properties. It was just my wife there for a pre-holiday vacation and it was a great one. We had the place to ourselves, but as advertised this house could easily accommodate 10-12 people. We didn’t understand how a house that could sleep 12 would not be too big for just us, but it wasn’t. It fit us perfectly. So I would strongly recommend it for couples looking for a romantic getaways as well as family vacations.
The pool was great and very private. The water was warm, even at night. The covered patio was great for hanging out, eating and reading. We picked our own coconuts (off the ground) and enjoyed mangos that were juicy and delicious. The kitchen was large and well equipped and there was a full size washer and dryer for laundry.
The neighborhood was quiet and safe. We loved Aruba Escape and loved Aruba. We look forward to going back and are talking about dates already. It will definitely be at one of Mike’s homes (he has three), if they are available. We also submitted another review for our stay in his house known as Palm Beach Sunset Villa, which was another great experience.

This was a perfect place for our family to relax and unwind! We rented a car and used the cooler and beach chairs provided to spend the days on the beach, sunning and snorkeling. Then we would return and lounge by the pool, grill out and enjoy the evening breeze on the patio. There were six adults and we had plenty of room.
I really appreciated all the help Michael gave me prior to the trip. He answered all my emails promptly and his recommendations made the trip all the more enjoyable. I wish we could have stayed longer!

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