How can I possibly express in words how we felt upon opening the door to this fabulous villa! It's even better than it looks in the pictures! We wanted to experience the island in a more laid back way than in a timeshare or hotel. This was the perfect place to do just that. It was so nice to relax and enjoy our vacation with the children. We really loved having the quiet pool to come home to after a day exploring or at the beach. This house is in a lovely neighborhood that is literally minutes from beaches and landmarks. It was so cool to be outside drinking our coffee in the morning and hearing the rooster crowing! Our son was trying to spy any iguanas over the wall when he wasn't in the pool and the girls and I had such fun cooking in the beautiful modern kitchen! I was admittedly taken aback by the smaller than I'm used to oven, but we had NO problem preparing meals for our family of 5 in it! It actually cut our cooking time in half! There is a little grocery store right around the corner and Super Food is a 5 minute drive. I could go on and on about the positives all day. (The only negative was that we had to leave!) But the bottom line is this. We felt as if we were staying in a family home. Peter and Helen really have thought of everything! Thank you again for sharing your home with us! We are hoping to be able to stay at Aruba Paradise Villa again next year!
