  • 5 of 5

It was a very difficult time deciding on where to stay when traveling to Aruba. We had 6 people in our group, all with different thoughts of what the perfect place to stay should be. The Big Beach House of the Water was more than ideal for us. Everything was exactly as described online. The location couldn’t have been better! Each morning we jogged up to the light house. There was no need to pack a cooler to go to Malmok beach! When we were thirsty we walked 500 feet to our house! Literally across the street to what seemed like our own private beach with palm tree umbrellas...we did cannonball jumps off the rocks and snorkeled while finding treasures in the beautiful crystal clear waters! We watched cruiseships come in the distance, and fishing boats bring in the catch of the day, all while enjoying coffee from the porch. It was also great after swimming in the ocean to rinse off in the outdoor shower. I cannot even begin to describe the gorgeous sunsets each night, also viewed from the porch. This home actually offered more than what was listed. It was great to use the library of books, rafts, coffee pot, and even candles! The suggestions given by Kanan were true to his word, the Lighthouse restaurant was one of our best meals of the week with an added bonus of steal drum music, the car rental service even drove us back to the airport, Jennifer kept everything in order – we don’t know how she get the towels so soft, and Alfred was waiting for us with keys in hand. We highly recommend this house! Thank you Kanan for sharing with us, the memories we made are fantastic!

Perfect holiday vacation with my family!

  • 5 of 5

Love staying at this house during our holiday vacation. This house was everything we hoped for. Everything so well laid out. The beauty of being able to walk out onto a patio and front porch and sit, watch and listen to the beach is amazing. I love staying there because of the view. The property is very cozy and perfect for our family. Great location. The blue color of the house truly sets a mood of peace. The house was spacious and has all the modern conveniences to make you feel at home. Everything in the house worked. I can't wait to come back. Thank you, Kanan.

Breath taking views from the house

  • 5 of 5

So sad to be back home. We got the best sunsets just sitting on the porch. The owner responds pretty fast. Jenny the house keep is so amazing... The house is really close to the main area where the casinos, restaurants, shopping and my favorite Starbucks. Our family really liked the house, it has a huge lot, big open space and feels like you are in paradise. Huge plus for us was the spare local cell phone they let us use. Get a rental car because there are lots of beaches to visit. Everything described on the site was there. We recommend this house. We were a couple with 4 kids. The snorkling in front of the house is probably the best spot on the island. We had 100 to 200 yards of reef to snorkel. We feed the fish bread and cheese.

Best Location

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house. All we did was snorkel, eat food on the huge porch, enjoy the views and incredible sunsets every night. The owner was quick to respond to our questions, and the house helper Jenny was so nice. Everyday we came back inside the house it was so clean and ready for my family. The set up is really nice. After a dip in the ocean, you walk to the back of the house and shower off with the outdoor shower. Then head back to the porch for a drink and watch the people on the beach. Everything in the pictures posted are true, but they painted the house out side sea blue color. Love it because it's easy to find. Everything was close by, as my wife needs her Starbucks every morning. We will be back next year.

Disappointing but not terrible

  • 2 of 5

We had high hopes for this home in Aruba after reading other reviews on this site, but we were disappointed in the overall quality of the home. The house is old and looks old. The upholstered furniture on the front porch is torn to pieces and is kept covered by old beach towels so it can actually be used. The inside of the house has fancy TV's and video game systems everywhere, but the refrigerator is half rust, it's almost impossible to get the single cup pour coffee pot to dispense a cup, and the blender leaks out the bottom when you use it. Also, when the kids did finally get around to the video game system late in week, it wasn't hooked up. They hooked it up, but then none of the batteries in any of the controllers worked. As my title says, the house wasn't terrible but it certainly wasn't 5 stars.

There are definitely positives to the location. The snorkeling right across the street is excellent, and there are a couple of great snorkeling locations within a mile as well. If things had stayed this way, the house would have been ok. However, things deteriorated during the week

The internet in the house went out on Monday morning. That is a huge deal in a foreign country when you don't have data coverage and can't research restaurants, activities, or beaches. We contacted the manager on the island at 10:00 am Monday. After a couple calls but no action, I finally e-mailed the owner (from McDonald's parking lot) on Wednesday night. The internet ultimately needed a new modem, but the manager didn't get that for us until Friday at 6:00pm. Again, this had a significant impact on our vacation. We did our best to sit in the McDonald's parking lot using free wifi to make plans, but we really had trouble getting organized. My biggest complaint was how nonchalant everyone was about getting it fixed. After paying for water and electricity at the end, we spent over $3,000 on the house for the week. We would never have rented the house if it didn't have internet, and simple responsiveness could have had us a new modem on Monday.

The second big problem was the second bathroom, which by day two my oldest son had labeled the "bathroom of eternal poop" because it always smelled like sewage. By the end of the week, the shower in that bathroom was completely stopped up and the smell was so bad that we just kept that bathroom closed and everyone used the master. Disappointing.

Owner's Response: Sam, Unfortunately I couldn't give you a $258 dollar refund you requested because the internet modem was not working for 3 days. We did our best to get it back on time. Your on an island, it's not like the states. Then you write a review like this. I have been doing this for 9 years, very sad to see someone go that low and ask for that much and abuse people.
