Overview

Noord Townhome Rental Photos and Description

4 bikes (with helmets) for your use -Free phone calls to & from USA and Canada

You really don't need a rental car here. Our resort, Palma Real is a small, quiet, nicely landscaped community of homes. This is a very pretty, quiet place to vacation but at the same time a short 10 to 15 minute walk gets you to the best beaches, restaurants, shopping and nightlife Aruba has to offer.

The townhouse is a very comfortable, well appointed home away from home. Everything you'll need for a comfortable stay and more is located within this home and the small, quiet resort of Palma Real.

Get to the beaches, shopping or restaurants even faster with the use of the 4 bikes (with helmets) we keep at the townhouse for guests to use free of charge.

If you want to explore the island, you might choose to sign up for one of the great island tours or reserve a car or Jeep from one of the rental companies close by for a day or two. Otherwise, just walk, use our bikes or the local bus service and save the rental car costs!!!

Free calls to and from the USA and Canada. We keep a phone in the townhouse that you can use to make and receive phone calls to the U.S. and Canada...... and it's FREE!!!

This townhouse has all of the comforts of home: Cable TV and high speed WiFi. Free telephone calls to and from the USA and Canada. 4 bikes (with helmets) for our guests to use. 3 pools within the community (including the kiddie pool). 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms - sleeps 2 to 6 people in comfort. Of course all of the utensils, pots, pans, plates, glasses, silver and cutlery are available for your use. Also, our management company is very close by and so if you have any problems, they will get them resolved. We checked before we hired them; they're the best management company on the island and they're committed to taking good care of our guests in Aruba.

Be sure to take a look at our reviews. We're very proud of our guest reviews and we strive to provide our guests with a wonderful vacation in this great little resort.

If you're interested in getting a rate for a stay, it is a good idea to contact us after you get a rate from HomeAway or VRBO. Sometimes the rates they give you are not completely accurate (the software is figuring your dates and costs) and we also can often show you payments methods that will save you money.

We have taken the damage deposit off of the 'rates' page. There is a $400 damage deposit that would be paid to the management company when checking in. The deposit can be done the same way you would pay a damage deposit for a rental car, i.e. putting a 'hold' for the deposit on your credit card and then it will be removed when checking out. We did this because the $400 fee was put into the rental and people had to tie up the damage deposit for month's, maybe a year or more when it will probably never even be used, just refunded. Having this fee appear in the cost estimate given to prospective guests made the townhouse appear to cost more to rent.

About Tom or Karen

We are Karen and Tom Szewczyk and we live in East Syracuse, New York. We're both graduates of Syracuse University and have worked at our professions for over 30 years.

Tom is a portrait photographer and operated his own successful studio for 35 years in Central New York and also was/is a real estate consultant & investor/developer.

Karen is a neo-natal nurse practitioner and loves taking care of little babies.

We set a goal just a few years ago to own and manage a condo or townhouse in Aruba that we can enjoy ourselves but also make available for guests to enjoy as rental. We found this beautiful townhouse, went to Aruba to see it and just fell in love with the community and the area in general. So far we've met 9 owners in this small community and they've all been very welcoming and wonderfully helpful; telling us that if we need any assistance to please let them know.

We really hit a home run here. We also met the couple who sold the townhouse to us. They've owned the home for more than a dozen years. As they're growing older they wish to spend more time in the states closer to family. They pointed out a lot of upgrades they've done to the property and they have taken incredibly good care of this home. We're determined to do as good a job caring for this home as they have.

Tom or Karen purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Tom or Karen chose Noord

Our townhouse is located in a quiet gated community that is very close to the beaches and also the nightlife of restaurants and various casinos. When you're ready to 'go home' you have a nice quiet neighborhood to live in but you're always very close to the most active areas of Aruba for daytime fun or nightlife.

What makes this townhome unique

Our guests have the free use of 4 bikes (with helmets) that we keep at the townhouse. With the bikes and because everything is so close by, you just don't need a rental car here. You can save the rental car money for other fun on the island. We're so close to everything you can walk or just take a bike a get there faster.

The townhouse has 2 master bedrooms upstairs, both with en suite baths. 1 bedroom downstairs with it's own full bath also. Virtually all of the comforts found in your own home can be found in this townhouse.

We have a 1 week minimum stay at our townhouse. If you were interested in booking a few days more than a week, we can quote you on that stay as well.

As an added bonus, we keep a telephone in the living room with an extension in the master bedroom. Using this phone you can make and receive FREE phone calls to the USA and Canada.

We also make an Aruba Cell phone available for our guests if you feel you'd like a cell phone. All you have to do is go to any supermarket or convenience store and buy some minutes for the phone. $10 or so is probably all you'll need.

If you're interested in getting a rate for a stay, it is a good idea to contact us after you get a rate from HomeAway or VRBO. Sometimes the rates they give you are not completely accurate (the software is figuring your dates and costs) and we also can often show you payments methods that will save you money.

Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this villa. The listing was completely accurate when describing this place. It has everything you could possibly need. Very clean and had plenty of towels. The management company provided excellent service. We will definitely be back, and highly recommend this home for your vacation stay.

Bida ta Dushi ~ The Sweet Life

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Aruba. Palma Real is a great property, extremely well-maintained. The owner, Tom could not have been more on top of everything. He answered emails quickly, gave detailed information and did not hestitate to offer additional assistance if needed. The booking process was superior. The attention to detail was impeccable. The proerty inside and out is immaculate!

Honestly, anyting you need while on vacation is within the property. We used the ammeneties such as toaster, coffee pot, pots & pans, microwave, stove, washer/dryer etc. We made our trek over to Cheng's grocery to buy all our food items for the week and we were set ! (if you want to pay the high prices for the "american-style" grocer then go to Ling & Sons or Super Food) Cheng's had everything we needed at 1/2 the price. There is a great gas grill, but we didn't use it. Bikes look great, but were also not used. We have a lot of friends in Aruba so we like to rent a car and go visit with them.

The property management staff was top notch. A big shout out to Rosie ~ she was right on top of everything and was a phone call away if we needed anything.

Check-in and check out were a breeze.

Make sure you listen to them when they tell you about conserving energy. Be sure to turn off all the A/C units, lights when not in use. You are alotted $100 for usage while you are there. That will be just fine as long as you remember to conserve.

It was great, especially for my husbands business, to be able to have wifi, a cell, and a US phone to make calls. You just don't et that in a standard hotel or in any other rentals I've been in. Kudos to Tom & Karen for going the extra step !

This property is in such a great location. Right outside the entrance you have an RBC bank with an ATM. DIrectly across the street from the entrance is "The Local Store" which is a craft beer bar. The only one I know of on the island. My husband is in heaven now! He was able to walk there and get his favorite IPA's. In all the years going to Aruba that was the one disappointment~up until now ! They also sell great chicken wings and funchi fries !

Believe me, I will be in contact with Tom again to stay at Palma Real #20. Masha Danki. Hopi hopi Bon !!

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was the perfect place for my family while vacationing in Aruba. It was very quiet and accommodating to our needs. Great location to the beautiful beaches and shopping/ dining areas. We really enjoyed arashi beach which was about 10 minutes away (driving). We did rent a car as we went exploring but not needed as there is a bus available and you are in walking distance of other beaches if you prefer to walk. Definitely a 5 star!! Thank you so much for sharing

This was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! It was exactly as the pictures show. The home was clean, modern and we needed for nothing while we were there. Everything went smoothly from the friendly staff that was waiting for us upon our arrival to the moment we left. It was a perfect location since we had other friends staying on Palm Beach. We used the bikes (although the locals thought we were crazy) which we found were best used in the early morning where there was less traffic. We also rented a car (Jay's care rentals) but found that it wasn't totally necessary to have for our whole stay...everything is so close. I would definitely recommend this home for your stay. There was 4 of us but you could certainly fit 6. Having 3 full bathrooms was a PLUS. We ate at Barneys (twice) which is around the corner along with several other restaurants so your choices are unlimited. I have not a bad word to say about our stay and have no reason to stay elsewhere when we return to beautiful ARUBA. Thank you Tom & Karen!

Wonderful home on the happy island

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this comfortable and well-equipped home. The home is just as advertised, and the amenities are top-tier. The kitchen is perfect for making meals at home, and the beds are very comfortable. There is a nice pool just a few steps away from the home, and there is good security (the guards make rounds regularly). We really enjoyed eating outside on the front patio (seating for 4). But for our family, the location is what made this an ideal rental - it is close to many restaurants (nearby Barneys is great for burgers), the two main tourist malls and many fabulous beaches.

Our ability to visit different beaches was based on having a rental car - which I would highly recommend for getting groceries and visiting other parts of the island. We made use of the beach chairs that Tom and Karen provided, and there are ample beach towels on site.

The local management company, Aruba Happy Rentals, gave us a warm welcome. They were also extremely responsive when we had a minor issue with one of the air conditioners - it was fixed the very next day after we reported it. The owner, Tom, is prompt with correspondence and most helpful as well. So, this place gets a 5-star review from us, both in terms of facilities and for excellent service.
