You really don't need a rental car here. Our resort 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 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 restauarants 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 just around the corner 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.

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.
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.
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.
