About John

Former IT executive who has travelled extensively and lived in different countries.

John purchased this villa in 2007

Why John chose Noord

My wife and I fell in love with Aruba on our very first visit in 2006. We had been searching for a place in the sun for years. Finally we found this Villa with its tropical gardens and the quiet and serene upscale and exclusive neighbourhood. In addition to the quiet surrounds, we loved the proximity to the beaches which are only a few minute drive away. The Villa is simple and straight forward and not a complicated house. It is in an extremely safe and upscale area of the island.

What makes this villa unique

The large private pool is ideal for families and couples. The rear patio is treated to the trade winds and a great place to sit and dine or have a cold beverage while watching the hummingbirds, iguanas and other tropical birds

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely, clean air-conditioned 3 bedrooms, 2 baths villa with an open layout Kitchen and living room, 2 sliding doors allowed trade winds to enter and fill the common area with fresh air. Big clean pool and gardens with a great seating area to enjoy drinks in the evening. We were greeted by Julie the property manager from Living Today who showed us the ropes and guided us through the beautiful villa. They ensured that the BBQ propane tank was filled. New Beach, Bath towels and linens were available. We declined to have the property manager arrange a car hire for us and we regretted it as the car rental offices at the airport was a farce. Save yourself the time and book the car through the villa it will save you time and money and the car rental agency will pick you up at the airport and return you to the airport which is a plus. The gardens are lush and beautiful the outdoor eating area was great. Ten minute drive to Eagle and Palm Beach (depending on traffic), 10 min via car to the high-rise hotel area with ample of dining choices in the area, 5 min to the supermarket or 10min to a big chain grocery store. 20 minute drive south to Oranjestad and the California Lighthouse to the north. 25 Min drive to the airport. Lawn Chairs and a cooler were provided so you could enjoy the beach. We were lucky enough to meet the owners who provided us with great recommendations on excursions and dining, they were very welcoming. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return. We loved the villa and we highly recommend

A Fantasy Vacation

  • 5 of 5
A fantasy vacation became a reality in April, 2014 when we had the opportunity to stay at Sol Palmas' the home of Bobbie and John Gray in Aruba. The large pool, garden and home amenities made it unnecessary to venture into the real world. Flowers , birds and even an occasional iguana, can all be enjoyed sitting poolside in the covered grove. The patio with barbecue, is ideal for dining, relaxed evening drinks
and conversation.
The worldly things, if desired (beaches,shopping,Casino) are only a 10 minute drive from this secluded upscale area.
So, have a swim,move to the grove for an appetizer, a glass of wine and let the world go by

Perfect re-visit

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we stayed at Sol Palmas, and we even liked it more than the last time. The villa is situated in a upscale and quiet residential neighbourhood. It is close to the beaches and all the hassle, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful garden and large pool. It has a nice porch on which we spend a large part of our stay. Just reading, taking in the many birds and swimming in the poolmade up a perfect holiday for us. The house itself is nicely decorated and has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms and a seperate third toilet. The kitchen is well equiped and the television has many canals, BVN included. During our stay, we had friends visiting us, and they said next year they would like to stay at Sol Palmas instead of a timeshare. So will we, because if you have stayed here once, you will return.

Wonderful as always

  • 5 of 5
This is our third staying at this beautiful villa. We cannot imagine staying anywhere else. Everything you need or want is there. Beaches, dining and entertainment is only ten minutes away. Spending the evening by the pool after a day at the beach, can it get better...I don't think so. We hope to return next year. Thank-you Bobbi and John!!!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5
After visiting Aruba many times, we felt it was time to rent a house. So we decided to stay in Sol Palmas for 21 nights. We didn't regret it. Over all this house, the garden and the location can't be better. It is situated in a nice, upscale and quiet neighbourhood where we felt totally safe. My husband was away a lot for work, but I had no problems staying on my own. We enjoyed the lovely, large pool ans spend most of our time there or on the large porch. The house has all the aminities one can wish for: fully equiped kitchen, washer, large refridgerator. Also the house comes with folding beach chairs, which is nice if you want to visit one of the less populated beaches. The company that takes care of the house was very helpfull, awaiting us on arrival with two nice bottles of wine. We had a lot of contact with Bobbie and John, the owners, who every few days send a mail asking if we were happy. All we could say was: Yes! Very, very happy!" Next visite we will with no doubt rent this house again.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Sol Palmas: a tropical oasis in paradise. We visit Aruba often, typically staying in the high rise area. We ventured into the world of villa rentals and were not disappointed. The villa is a nicely furnished island vacation home. You will find it difficult to leave the beautifully landscaped, walled in, pool area to venture out. Location! First timers to the island may find it a bit confusing to get around because, typical of any island, roads are not well marked. The villa is nicely located for trips to any kind of store or restaurant. It's only 5-10 min. to the beach. Our routine was to pool in the morning, pack a lunch, beach in the afternoon, pool at dusk, and then make the tough decision to cook and dine poolside or eat out at any of the many wonderful restaurants. The villa is in a “professional” and safe neighborhood (alarm system and safe). House rentals are not for those who are looking to be served and entertained, but rather for those who want to experience “living” among locals and truly “decompress” from their daily life (yes, with wifi & cable if you must). We did have concern that if a problem arose we might be on our own. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Aruba Living Today’s service was spot on. At one point we ran out of gas for the immaculately clean grill and 45 minutes later (late in the evening no less) a tank was delivered with a smile and an apology! We have run out of gas at a high rise timeshare hotel with a full staff and not gotten service that fast, let alone an apology. As long as you understand that you are renting a home, and that their won’t be turndown service, and you have to triangle fold the end of your own toilet paper you have found the perfect vacation villa. Our group had the most relaxing trip to Aruba we have ever experienced. Gone were the feelings of having to “do” everything the island offers for entertainment. We generally hung by the pool and chilled. It is heartbreaking to to make this recommendation because I know that John and Bobbie’s villa will become so popular that we may be turned away one day, but we can’t lie, this place is awesome. Just awesome. So if you are the high maintenance types, please do us a favor and stay at the hotels in your 24hr a day air conditioned cubical. Us, we will be turning off the a/c (except while sleeping), opening up the sliders, and letting the Aruba breeze fill the air and our hearts in this villa paradise. Thanks again Bobbie and John! Danki!

lovely

  • 5 of 5
we visited sol palmas during the 3rd week of august 2012. i have to say i was surprised with the home and how comfortable and up to date it was. the place was clean, attractive and had everything we wanted from internet to cable. the best features, in our opinion were the pool which was lovely with peaceful privacy and the fact that the outdoor dining area was in a shaded alcove so we could eat in our beachwear.

it was only a few minute drive to the beach but we spent very little time there. this was a vacation to relax and enjoy in peace and privacy. sol palmas gave us all of that without having to leave the pool and the house.
