Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Anita and Dave,

Just wanted to tell you both what a pleasurable experience it has been meeting you. Anita, even during course of communicating to organize the condo rental

you were a queen of charm and professionalism, you just made whole process easy and uncomplicated.

Wacamaya was everything it is described to be on the rental site. That was such a relief because in past have been disappointed many times when complex

doesn't live up to its description. Wacamaya is what a vacation should always be, comfortable, relaxing and it definitely has a " HOME " feeling.

We loved the first week getting around on foot and bus everywhere. Condo is perfectly situated only a 10 minute walk to high rise beach near Marriot, and

second week with the car rental gave us a chance to visit so many other attractions that were a little distance away.

Anita, you are a true sweetheart. I have witnessed how your kindness has no limits, not only do you move heaven and earth to make your condo renters as

comfortable and happy as possible but I have seen how wide your kindness spreads when you actually went out of your way to help a renter who rented from

another owner who was not available at that time, by lending her your own personal hairdryer.

Wacamaya is a true gem and anyone lucky enought to rent there will get the lucky bonus of having to deal with Anita and Dave "rare gems". What else

would we expect to find in a garden of eden "Wacamaya" in ARUBA.

Gia and Walter

Highly Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived just after a spell of rainy weather which is somewhat unusual for Aruba--we have rented at Wacamaya from the Trumans for 3 consecutive Januaries and had excellent weather on each occasion. Apt. 6A is a ground floor unit with a new flat screen TV supplemented with Roku which allowed us to watch movies on Netflix. My favorite pastime here is to swim in the beautiful waterfall pool just outside the front door of the apt. Snorkeling at one of the nearby beaches is also recommended. The Trumans are always available if any problems arise --this year they were kind enough to get us a discount card to use at Super Foods which can be pricey compared to USA food costs.

Best place to call home

  • 5 of 5

We have been enjoying Wacamaya since 2008, before marriage and kids- once the first was born 2011, we decided to use the hotels as they were more convenient as we could access the beaches without a rental car. Now the girls are 3 and 5, and no more diapers, we wanted to revisit Wacamaya. Dave and Anita are lovely people who make every effort to make your stay feel like home (or better!)

Excluding the fact Wacamaya is a fraction of what the (greedy) hotels are now charging, you could rent a nice car, eat at the best restaurants, have a shopping spree and still be ahead financially..

As an added bonus, I found the hiking and mtn. Bike trails are right across the road.

I love the place. Clean, great pool, great facilities and safe as it gets.. Best Island Ever!

Another Great Visit to Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to Aruba three years in a row and stayed here each time. After going to many all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean we wanted to rent a condo and try something different...we love it here! Anita and Dave have been so kind and easy to rent from. They are always available if there is anything we needed and are very organized with the rental information. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and have everything that you would need to make your stay there enjoyable. We have stayed in three different condos and each one has been very, very nice. The beds are really comfortable and the pool area is always clean. No need to get out early to grab a chair because there's enough for everyone. We love to use the BBQ for most dinners and this year we were invited to a pot-luck dinner with other guests and that was so much fun! Another great thing about this place is the people there are so friendly and we have met some very nice couples through the years! It is close to Arashi Beach and Palm Beach and you will not find a better place to walk in the sand than Aruba!!

Beautiful place only minutes from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This place was spectacular. A unit that is impressive inside with all the designer touches throughout. All the furniture was top of the line. You will love the ambiance of the outside pool with the waterfall in the middle.

Gated parking and gated into the courtyard is nice. Will definitely come back here again,

Amazing Time in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is everything it is advertised to be and then some! Pictures were accurate, and Dave and Anita were very easy to deal with. Wacamaya is an awesome complex. This was our first visit to Aruba and won't be our last. The condo is very close to the beach, and all of the resorts as well. The sunsets there were awesome and the Island is a great place. We stayed in 6A and the bed was extremely comfortable and we will definitely be returning sometime in the near future!

Wonderful complex and unit, great locations n

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Aruba, and we've picked the perfect location for our stay on the island. The complex is great - good location, only a 5 minute drive to Palm Beach and the high rise hotels, gorgeous pool and landscaping. It looks even better than in any of the pictures posted, you feel like you're at a resort but without the crowds.

The unit is very nice, with a very comfortable king size bed, nice large shower, fully equipped kitchen, AC and very good wifi.

Anita and Dave are wonderful hosts, they greeted us at the condo even though our evening flight was delayed by almost 2 hours; they had a hard copy of the welcome package printed so we can keep it in the car, and after showing us around the complex they escorted us to the High Rise hotels area and showed us where to find parking at night when it gets really busy in the area.

Aruba is a wonderful island, we will definitely return and will call Anita and Dave to arrange another stay in this complex.

Nearest Beach
0.5 Miles
Palm Beach
Car: recommended

There are watersports booths all along the beach if you want to snorkel, dive, windsurf, boating, deep sea fishing etc. If you have your own snorkel gear there are many places that you can go and snorkel on your own. Malmok Beach and Arashi Beach and along this area are the spots to snorkel. A lot of people also go to Baby Beach at the other end of the island to snorkel.

All the beaches in Aruba are public. You will find many spots along the beaches with huts and you can use these and take some beach towels etc. There is a cooler bag and two beach chairs in the condo and some floaties that you can use also.
