Full disclosure, I travel a LOT and am very picky. That said we had a fantastic experience from beginning to end at the townhouse owned by Marjorie Bacalao Zamora. Marjorie was kind and professional at all times. She made the entire process a pleasure. Marjorie's suggestion sheet that was sent to us before our departure was perfect and saved us time and money. Her resident manager, Dirima, was amazing. She looked after anything and everything, as well as having great suggestions. The location of the unit was fantastic. It was gated for safety, right beside a modern hospital, and VERY close to the beach. Even carrying two beach chairs, towels and beach bags you are standing on the white sand of eagle beach 6 minutes after locking the door. It is a pleasant two block walk to the beach. Speaking of the beach, Eagle Beach is the nicest beach I have been on from Australia, to the Caribbean to Hawaii. Miles long, very wide and powder white sand. Warm turquoise waters with a gentle slope, perfect for everyone. You can rent beach loungers and sunshades - cheap. The unit is also close to a number of very good restaurants. Short walk to the Screaming Eagle and a short cab ride to Matthew's, Ricardo's and Moomba (all right on the beach). In fact the unit is close to everything with a short taxi ride. Speaking of Aruba's taxis. They are very inexpensive. Most trips were about ten dollars with tips. Trips to the airport or out to Faro Blanco restaurant at the far end of the island were slightly more but still very cheap. The taxis arrived quickly, usually under 10 minutes, were clean and the drivers very friendly. I decided not to rent a car as my insurance company would not insure me on Aruba and the liability insurance you can purchase was, at 50K, far too low for me. Lucky for me anyway - as the cab fare I paid was far cheaper and we went everywhere for two weeks. Marjorie's recommendation of More4Less car rental was right on. They were way cheaper than others for the same vehicles. . BTW I had to go to an ATM for more money (use the one at the Hospital as it's the safest) because the taxis do not take credit cards - it's all cash. The townhouse was VERY quiet. It was very clean, plenty of space, well equipped. The oven works great (if you can read LOL). There is a beautiful outdoor patio - 50 steps from the beautiful pool that was very clean. I could write more but VRBO limits the space. Final positive comment - we will be back in 2017 for four weeks!
