Truly a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to do something really special for my 40th birthday this year, so my boyfriend and I started researching Aruba and Curacao. Once we settled on Aruba and we found this place on VRBO, we knew this was the perfect place to spend our vacation, and we were right!

Linda and Delano were wonderful, kind hosts - it was like staying with friends! The guest house was so charming, well kept, and clean. It was just as comfortable and relaxing to sit in the courtyard than it was anywhere else on the island, including the beach! My boyfriend and I even started calling the house our "home" when we were out and about on the island :).

We were especially impressed with Linda and Delano's attention to detail. Anything you might think you need? Just open some cabinets because it will be there! That included everything you might need for the beach, to cook, or to clean. One morning, we found ourselves with some fully cooked french toast, but no syrup (oops!). Linda and Delano were so kind enough to lend some to us so we could finish our breakfast without another trip to the store.

I can't say enough good things about our experience. We had a wonderful 6-day vacation, and it was in part because we stayed here, in a secure location, easy parking, and knowing that we had hosts who were genuinely concerned with our comfort and well-being. I highly recommend this guest house, and I am sure we will be back!!

Fantastic Hosts and Property!

  • 5 of 5

After visiting Bonaire and Curacao in the past, my boyfriend and I traveled to Aruba for the first time this past January. We had the most amazing trip and that was due in large part to staying in Delano and Linda's sweet guest cottage. The cottage had everything we needed! Beach chairs, beach towels, washer/dryer, secure parking, fast internet, safe, perfect sized kitchen, lovely courtyard, peace and quiet, and awesome hosts!

I was a little stressed when our return flights were cancelled due to a snowstorm and we had to stay an extra day, but Delano and Linda were extremely helpful and accommodating. They also were helpful with directions and recommendations during our stay.

The location was perfect! We jumped in our Jeep and were at Eagle, Arashi, Malmok, or Palm Beach as well as the highrise hotel area with all the night life and day-time activities in minutes. Having never visited Aruba before, I wondered if we would want to be closer to the downtown Oranjestad area where you see all the pretty pictures of that shopping plaza online- wrong! That area caters mostly to the cruise ships, is congested, and doesn't have the really nice beaches. Better to visit for an evening or afternoon when the cruise ships have arrived and everything is open.

As I said, this property is located close to the great beaches, lighthouse, shopping, great restaurants, casinos, sunset cruise/snorkel trips, parasailing, grocery stores, gas etc. etc. while also being super private and quiet in a nice neighborhood setting. We also found that it was an excellent jumping off point to get to the National Park, dunes, Butterfly Farm, Phillips Animal Garden, Rock Formations, etc. due to being located near major roads that run the length of the island.

As you can see from the pictures, the cottage itself is clean, perfectly maintained, and surrounded by a beautifully landscaped courtyard. I cannot say enough great things about this property or the hosts. We will definitely be returning!

Just make two new friends!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well, there was so many good words previously said in all reviews about the rental property and the owners, there is not much to add but - trust those reviews they are truth. The guest house has everything you might possibly need on your vacation in Aruba! The bed was very comfortable, good mattress and pillows provided better rest than in most hotels. We just occasionally cooked but there was all we need really fully equiped small kitchen. Nice sitting area, TV, stereo, enough closet space, fridge,microwave and even personal washer/drier…

But the real find is Linda and Delano!!! We just felt that we found a new friends, kind attentive, willing to help,

they make our short stay so pleasurable and memorable!!! Thank you Linda for all advises on restaurants and reservation!!! Thanks Delano for helping us with getting back to car rental!!! Thank you guys for the cold bottle of vine, we felt so warm and welcome after loosing the whole day due to flight delay! We'll be back soon:)

Ideal Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for almost two weeks over the Holidays and cannot say enough good things about the home and the hosts! Delano and Linda were very gracious and always willing to answer questions or give recommendations. The house has everything we needed to feel right at home including reliable high speed wifi, washer/dryer, large refrigerator/freezer and beautiful courtyard with BBQ where we ate many meals. The location is very close to the high rise hotels, restaurants and beaches. I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone looking for a beautiful and peaceful place to stay in Aruba.

What a Find!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. I have visited Aruba several times in the past, and I didn't think it was possible to live so well in Aruba for such a reasonable price. The guesthouse is lovely and provided every amenity I needed:TV, fridge, stereo, washer/dryer, cooler, beach chairs and more. The courtyard is inviting, equipped with a table and chairs and barbecue and surrounded by beautiful flora. In addition, there are many beaches, restaurants, casinos, supermarkets, and other places of interest a short car ride away. There's a lot to keep one occupied within ten minutes or less from this jewel. The Todmans did everything possible to make sure that my stay was comfortable and were available when needed to answer questions and make recommendations. I only hope that in the future I do not have to compete with too many other potential guests for time at this amazing find.

Tropical Serenity

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation made better by the perfect place to stay. I gave it 5 stars only because there is no option to give it 6. You will not find more gracious or helpful hosts than Linda and Delano. They are truly wonderful and have created a marvelous hideaway for your visit to Aruba. The place is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, well equipped and quiet. There are even chairs, coolers and towels for the beach. It is centrally located, leaving you mere minutes from the best beaches, resorts, casinos and shopping. You might not step out of your door and onto the beach, but what hotel will offer you your own private courtyard? We enjoyed breakfast there every morning. If you have any questions about where to go or what to do, Linda and Delano will have the answers. We alternated between beach trips and exploring the island and were always glad to be back in our island home. For extra peace of mind, the property is gated. Not that we saw anything about which to be concerned, but you can never be too careful. BONUS: what we saved by staying here paid for the rest of the trip. Any time we return to Aruba, this is where we will stay. Thank you Linda and Delano.
