The Aruba Ridge villa is over 3600 square feet and is decorated in contemporary Aruban style. The property will only be rented to one group at a time. If your group uses 2BR, the rate is $1,000 per week. If your group has more than 4 people, the 3BR rate of $1,500 per week is applied. If you need 8 people, we can add a blow up queen mattress in the largest bedroom. We have added a blow up mattress for children in the second bedroom to accommodate 10, but it is really tight!
The villa has 3 totally private bedrooms, each with a balcony, air conditioner, flat screen TV with cable, tile bathroom with shower, and an in-room safe. Two bedrooms have queen sized beds and the third has a king size bed. The villa features a full kitchen, dining and living areas, and two large patios, one with a gas grill. For those who need to stay connected, we have WIFI.
Aruba is known as 'One Happy Island'. In keeping with that theme, when we are not vacationing in Aruba and are back in Georgia, we invite others to stay in our villa at very attractive rates. This is our home and we expect our guests to treat it as they would their own. Since Aruba is beautiful all year round, our rates stay the same all year. We normally do not rent to singles under 25. No smoking and no pets, but children are welcome! - Billy Lochridge, Alpharetta, GA, Owner

This villa is close to everything, yet private and quiet. You can either enjoy an active day schedule and follow it up with nightlife or simply relax and enjoy the lovely sea breeze. Unwind at your pace!
Great location. It's close to a great beach and all the main restaurants, but it's far enough out of the way to not be right in the middle of all the tourists. It is a perfect setup for couples. Each bedroom has it's own entrance and it's own private bathroom, almost set up like 3 separate hotel rooms with a shared living room and kitchen downstairs.
The owner was very responsive and even offered to pick us up from the airport if we needed. He was extremely helpful and gave us lots of tips of things for family-friendly things to do.
Great location, close to the beach. Very safe neighborhood. 4 bedroom/bath house, very clean and easily accessible. Lots of cookware, skillets, pots and etc.
They have a land line and you can call anyone in the US for free. Highly recommend.
What a wonderful getaway. Everything availalbe to you just like your at home. The bedrooms were spacious very clean and beds were very comfortable. Loved having the belcony off the bed rooms in the morning to look out over the salina. The kitchen is well equiped and you can drink the water from the tap and it taste good. I don't think there was any area of the property we didnt explore. What a relaxing stay. Just close enough to the action and just out of the lime light.
The Owners was very accommodating to all our questions on where to go and what to see.
Had a chance to see a Marty Gras parade. Don't stand to close to the building, the music bounces off it and you think your heart will take on a different beat. Great fun & and the costumes and lights wow!
We picked up a fresh barracuda off the fishermen on the docks and cooked that up one night with pineapple coconut salsa...incredible. There is a small eatery called palm beach great food loved the cod, nothing special in décor but they sure can cook (local cuisine).
We went sight seeing from north to south. The natural pool in the national park was breath taking (you must take a tour for this, do not try to take a rental car.) This island is so picturesque. Beaches are incredible beautiful, clean and accessible to all tourist, not owned by the hotel in front of it. To me it says Aruba is its own and not being dominated by the big hotels.
Also toured what I call a ghost town. Check it out in the south near Rogers and Baby beach.
Sure would like to go again and take more people with me. I would love to bring others to share the peace and comfort i enjoyed.
Stayed at the villa and was thoroughly pleased with the accommodations. Views from balconies was awesome. The pictures are good but the real thing is amazingly beautiful. Going from -degrees to the gentle warm breezes of Aruba was excellent. Property was clean and well kept, near great restaurants. The owner was vey receptive to our needs.
We went on tours of the country side which where amazing. Attended one of the festival parades, great music. Dined at a local eatery, food was great, service, friendly and fast. Shopping is close by, beaches are wonderful.
Could not asked for a better place to stay.
I would and have recommended this villa to family and friends. Hoping to return soon. Love, love, loved the place.
The property exceeded my expectations and the photos accurately describe the property. It was clean and well maintained. I felt comfortable with the location, which was very close to everything in Palm Beach. A couple of evenings we just sat on the patio until the wee hours enjoying the sea breeze and the lights of the resorts twinkling in the salina.
I highly recommend Bon Bini on Tuesday evening and the Carruban festival on Thursday evenings. We enjoyed the sunset catamaran cruise, the natural pool, and Casibari rock. Be sure to try the local Aruban dishes. Although there is a nice Hard Rock Cafe and plenty of other American restaurants, the local fare is great. My wife had an arm in a cast so we had to pass on snorkeling and parasailing.
Pleasant surprises included excellent drinking water (keep a pitcher full in the refrigerator), the dollar was accepted everywhere, English was spoken by almost everyone, the McDonalds had English language Aruba newspapers, and the nearby mall had inexpensive first run movies.
Aruba lives up to its motto, "one happy island". We will be back next year.
On the beautiful leeward side of Aruba is Aruba Ridge, a villa within walking distance to Palm Beach and only minutes from Arashi and Eagle Beaches. The villa is located adjacent to Palm Beach, the most desirable area of Aruba, within view of the casinos and resorts, making it convenient to shopping, dining, movie theaters, golf, and waters sports.
