Overview

Oranjestad Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 story penthouse, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Welcome to the Penthouse, a perfect vacation paradise for families, friends, honeymooners and couples! This beautiful 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath penthouse condominium contains everything you and your family would possibly need for a fabulous vacation just steps from gorgeous Eagle Beach. The Penthouse is located on the first class Divi Village & Golf resort and is just a few minutes leisurely walk through the resort to the most beautiful, yet uncrowded beach on Aruba, and is directly across from the resort's main infinity pool with swim up bar and water slides! In addition to its spacious and beautifully decorated interior, what makes the Penthouse completely unique is its totally private second floor terrace - it is the perfect spot on the island to watch the famous Aruban sunsets and relax in your own private jacuzzi! The private terrace is the largest at the Divi, and has breathtaking views of the golf course and ocean with a sunset view, connecting you effortlessly with the wonderful Aruban breezes and sunshine! It is attractively landscaped with local palms and plants, with comfortable upholstered seating areas, sunning lounges, hammocks, a shade trellis, a dining table which seats 10 comfortably, and a professional standard gas grill. And the terrace is directly accessible from the penthouse interior - unlike any other penthouse terrace at the Divi. From the upstairs living and bedroom area, simply walk out onto your private terrace and hop in the Jacuzzi, flop in a hammock or watch the sunset from your choice of several comfy couches with a beverage from the wet bar! The two levels of the Penthouse are connected with an interior spiral staircase, with exclusive elevator to the terrace as well. State of the art lighting makes the evenings on the Penthouse terrace especially wonderful!

Steps from the pool and beach! The penthouse is a short 1 minute stroll from the main infinity pool at the Divi with swim-up bar, cafe and children's areas with water slide. Spectacular Eagle Beach is less than a 5 minute walk or you can hop on the free golf cart shuttle that the Divi runs constantly around the resort which you can pick up right outside the door. The penthouse is stocked with everything you need to enable you to just show up, unpack your swimsuit and hit the beaches! There is a fully stocked “beach closet” with coolers, beach toys and accessories (chairs & floats) for your use.

Because the Penthouse is located in a first class full service resort and not just a 'condo complex' you have the peace of mind knowing you will be taken care of plus all the added extras you won't get from staying at a non-resort property! The penthouse local manager will also take great care of you, can do pre arrival grocery shopping, and will make sure everything about your stay is perfect!

In addition to two spacious ensuite bedrooms with luxury bedding and decorated with local art, the first floor of the penthouse has a large and comfortable living, dining room and fully equipped kitchen, which open onto two balconies with seating overlooking the golf course and a lovely stream. It is a wonderful area for birdwatching! There is also a small office with full size computer, free internet and a printer for your use! Wander up the spiral staircase from the living room and you will arrive in the upstairs 'great room'. It is a wonderful entertaining space with a flat screen TV, wet bar with refrigerator, interesting décor and furniture. You will find the third private bedroom upstairs, with a comfy king bed as well as a full bath with rain shower!

The master suite has a king bed, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, large marble master bath with double granite sinks, double water jet rain shower with massaging wall jets (!) and separate toilet and bidet room. The second bedroom has a king sized bed, which is convertible into two twin beds upon request, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, and private bath with rain shower.

Everything is included in your stay! The Divi Owners Residences at the Divi Links Resort are newly constructed, luxury condominiums which enjoy the full benefits of the Divi Resort including restaurants, golf, tennis, fitness centre, swim up pool bar, etc. The beach has beach huts and loungers free to our guests. Unlike at other condos for rent on Aruba, you won't have to lug your own chairs to the beach or pay to rent them every day. Just bring your towel (also provided free by the Divi) and cooler (which we provide)! The nine hole golf course is exceptionally well maintained, with weekly tournaments and specials and you can also take lessons. Additionally, there are 5 tennis courts, non motorized water sports, a fitness center and a rock climbing wall. Windows on Aruba is renowned for gourmet cuisine and romantic views. There are several more casual dining options at the Resort as well.

About Elizabeth Baird

We fell in love with Aruba, its people and way of life from our first visit! I am an American from Kentucky, and my partner is Dutch, and spent his formative years living on neighboring Curacao. The Aruban culture welcomes and embraces everyone who is prepared for the easy life and friendship. We enjoy the Caribbean carefree lifestyle and also the European side of the culture, which influences the cuisine and arts. Our best memories are dancing to live local bands on the pier at Bugaloo, and to fabulous Cuban and Latin bands at Tropical downtown. We also love watching world class kite surfers at the Fishermans' huts at sunset. We have had some wonderful times at the Penthouse already, the deck is a romantic, wind cooled spot for cocktails and a great place to entertain a large group. As we currently live in London, we are best placed to use email to either answer questions or arrange a call.

Elizabeth Baird purchased this condo in 2010

Why Elizabeth Baird chose Oranjestad

We love the Divi Resort amenities, and beautiful Eagle Beach. You can walk for several miles up the beach, past sea turtle nesting areas and the sunsets are incredible from the terrace and balconies. Although all beaches on Aruba are gorgeous, we chose the low rise resort area due to it being much less crowded than the high rise hotel areas. We also chose this property over other nearby condo options because of all the extras that you get being part of a world class resort that you don't get a just a condo complex. At the Divi resort there are several pools, and if inclined you can play golf, tennis, wind surf, rock climb, and sea kayak. There are several restaurants and bars on the property as well. There is the Alhambra casino at the Divi or you are 5 minutes away from your choice of casinos at the high rise hotels and plenty of live music. Grocery stores are a 2 minute car ride away. We looked at several other condo options and the Divi's combination of amenities and facilities and proximity to the beach were unsurpassed. We think you will love it too!

What makes this condo unique

We DO NOT use a generic managment company to manage the Penthouse and your vacation. We like to share our home with like minded guests and provide a unique personal experience. We have a local friend/manager on the island to answer questions, help with arrangements, do pre-arrival grocery shopping, and assist you on the ground with whatever you may need. You will be well taken care of by us and the Divi! As this is a full service resort and not just a condo complex, you have all the added extras that you won't get from staying at condos!

Unique Exceptionally Beautiful Eagle Beach Penthouse - Private Terrace & jacuzzi

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations. The decoration reflects both thought and imagination. It is in a quiet area with lovely balcony views. We enjoyed the terrace with its private jacuzzi and grill where we cooked one evening. It is extremely well stocked with everything that could possibly be needed and the owners and manager were immediately responsive to our every question. We have stayed in a variety of condos and have never experienced one with an owner as helpful as this one. Having groceries delivered to the condo before we arrived prevented us from having to devote time to that chore. The owner made some recommendations for activities and restaurants and they proved to be exactly what we had hoped. We would recommend the Off Road Jeep adventure for anyone who would like to see the wilder side of Aruba. Yemanja Restaurant in the downtown area is delightful and definitely our favorite dining experience on the island. We certainly hope to return to this bit of paradise.

Beautiful Penthouse!

  • 5 of 5

This property was even more beautiful than the pictures, very spacious, and well furnished. The private rooftop was amazing and we also enjoyed sitting on the private balconies off the living area enjoying the sound of the water below. We like to cook and the kitchen was very well stocked. The resort is located in a very nice, quiet area with the beach a short walk away. The beach is beautiful with soft white sand and clear blue water. The owners were exceptionally responsive and helpful. We highly recommend a stay at The Penthouse!

Better Than The Description

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two adult children stayed six days at the penthouse. This was our first trip to Aruba and our first time renting a property for our vacation. I'm a skeptic and I travel a lot for work so when I read the description and reviews I was a little nervous that this sounded too good to be true and that the property would not meet my expectations and that the owner would not provide support or communication when I needed it. Well I was blown away. When I emailed a couple of questions to Elizabeth she was very prompt to respond and answered my questions completely. Once I booked the penthouse she sent a welcome packet which consisted of a thorough description of the penthouse, it's care and maintenance, what you should bring, activities which her and Jaap enjoy and dining places they recommend. All of this information was amazingly helpful for us in planning our time. Even better, once we arrived we found that her recommendations were spot on. The penthouse itself is much nicer than we anticipated (again I'm a skeptic). It is luxurious but in a very comfortable and laid back way. Everything in the description is true and I was blown away by all the little details Elizabeth provides like funny sunglasses, cheater glasses, computer, camera, closet full of pool toys and beach gear and tons of beach towels, etc. All we really needed to bring was clothes (and yes you were right Elizabeth we needed much less clothing than we thought!) and personal toiletries. Kitchen is well equipped and the grill is right by the jacuzzi where it should be. All I can say is we all felt as if we were staying at a friend's house and felt totally at home. The Divi is a nice, safe facility and they were quite responsive with the few requests we had. Onsite dining was good and beach access was also good. Hertz rental onsite is great (again a suggestion from Elizabeth). Bottom line is that if you are looking for a great condo in Aruba this is the one. We will be back again next year.

Great experience - highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Penthouse over Thanksgiving! We've been annual visitors to Aruba since 2007 and the value offered by the Penthouse in terms of both accommodations and location is far and away the best we have experienced. I particularly enjoyed watching my family's reaction as they explored both the main floor and the terrace levels! We spent many nights enjoying the Jacuzzi and also grilled out on the barbeque for lunch. The Divi resort offers several amenities including a great infinity pool with a nice slide for the kids to enjoy and easy access to the beach.

I also can't say enough about the owners - Elizabeth and Jaap. They were very engaged and professional throughout the planning process - communicating on a regular basis and providing several helpful planning hints along the way. They also were sure to check in during our stay to make sure everything was perfect.

Thanks Elizabeth and Jaap for a wonderful week!

Family New Years Getaway at the Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

I don't think there is enough space to describe what an amazing vacation we just had in Aruba at the Penthouse. My husband and I went to Aruba in Jan. 2014. We loved the island and wanted to share with our family. We have 4 children ages 16-23 yrs old. They have never been on a trip out of North America.

There were 2 boyfriends that joined us, making our happy group of 8. I can honestly say that the pictures and description did not do justice to the amazing place we enjoyed. When we first entered the condo, the kids went from room to room and each floor along with us, we were in awe at how beautiful and spacious it was. So much little details that added to the experience, including Eric's pre-trip grocery shop for us, the closet of beach accessories and coolers, the beautiful décor, comfortable beds, amazing showers, spectacular views from the 2 terraces and upper deck.

We had fun taking turns in pairs preparing dinners and ate out only one night on the beach and ordered in pizza for a lazy last night. The fireworks on New Year's eve were incredible. The island as far as we could see was lit up in all directions with amazing fireworks that went on for hours. Our quiet morning coffee on the terrace watching the golfers and bird watching, the family time in the Jacuzzi, on the beach, at the pool, snorkeling and watching the gorgeous sunsets are memories that will last a lifetime. The set up of the penthouse makes it truly ideal for families and couples with their friends. It was so very clean and well maintained within the condo and the grounds. We noticed all the extras, including cheater glasses, being able to print boarding passes, use of computer and wifi, taking a polaroid shot for your bulletin board, the fun glasses, hats and games. We even enjoyed some of the shows at the resorts across the street. The boys did their deep sea fishing and we grilled up some of the delicious tuna they caught. We were late deciding on a day trip and ended up going to de Palm island, which the kids enjoyed, the all-inclusive food and open bar for the day and activities. Thank you so much Elizabeth and Jaap for sharing your beautiful gem with us and all your help with planning what was a perfect family vacation. I would love to return . Cindy and Dave M.

Our penthouse has breathtaking views across the beautiful Divi Golf Course to the ocean! From our private terrace you can watch magnificent sunsets in the evening and in the morning watch the cruise ships come in. We are approximately 2 minutes from the main pool and a 5 minute walk to the beach - or take the free Divi shuttle to the beach which stops just outside the penthouse! Unlike the other condo rentals on Aruba, the Divi provides nice beach huts and loungers to all guests free of charge! Just bring your towel and cooler!

Other Activities: The beach and pools at the Divi resort are gorgeous and uncrowded, a vast difference from the high-rise hotel area. Our favorite days are early morning walks on the beach and hanging out on the terrace at sunset with friends or having a romantic evening listening to music and grilling out with just the two of us!

Golf: The Divi Resort has a first class 9 hole course that is rarely crowded and professional golf instruction. There are weekly tournaments and promotions at the lively clubhouse!
