Just What We Were Looking For!
We would highly recommend this villa. It is located in a nice area away from all the hectic pace, safe, quiet, and comfortable, not too hard to find with directions. You can park inside the double garage and shut the yard gate as you enter. We felt very safe. We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful villa. The pool area was very private with lush tropical plantings, out of view from anyone making it very relaxing and private. Enjoyed the tropical landscaping of the entire outdoor space. The kitchen was well equipped and the villa is spacious. Would be very comfortable for a large group of people. We used the upper master bedroom with the balcony, the balcony is wonderful with a distant view of the ocean. At the time we stayed the shower was not in working condition in the upper master and they planned to remove the tub and put in a stand alone shower. No worries though we just used one of the downstairs showers, the toilet and sink in the master still worked. We understand there are times things break down and need replacing. The TV in the upper master was wonderful to retire to. We enjoyed the pool and patio area with the grill several times a day and in the eve. As on most islands there were the local dogs that hung out and would occasionally bark, but not to the extreme of being an issue at all. We only used the A/C in the master bedroom and ran the pool pump continually to help clean the pool, but did not go over the allotted electric, at least we were not charged extra for any. Aruba is a wonderful desert island, safe, to drive all over and enjoy all the beautiful beaches and scenery. It has a great large grocery store that has everything you need. Bring toilet paper and paper towels to begin your stay , as there were none. I did ask the caretaker, who by the way was great to work with, to see about leaving at least a starter pack going forward. Overall we would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We always provide toilet paper to start the stay at the villa. In this one occasion I forgot, went to the store and bought some but when I came back nobody answered the door because they were probably enjoying the pool. Not an excuse but that is the way it came about.
As for the shower issue, we think that it is now fixed without removing the whole tub.
We always try to keep the place in top shape and the owner always wants to make new changes for the best.
