Fully furnished and decorated in a soft tropical theme you will enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, a large, comfortable king-size bed, travertine marble bath, a 6' walk-in shower, and a large living and dining space both inside and outside.
You will also enjoy cable TV, high-speed internet and wifi - even around the pool! We also provide aluminum and canvas beach chairs and a cooler for use at the pool or the beach.
Plus we give all of our guests our exclusive publications; The Top 10 Restaurants, Top 10 Attractions and Top 10 Thing To Do That Nobody Else is Going to Tell You About.

If you are at all familiar with Aruba, this private complex is just across from The Marriott and Ritz Carlton and is in a very safe neighborhood with private, gated parking.
You can e-mail us for availability, as we don't use this website's availability calendar since we are listed on so many different websites.
Here is more you should know:
We are the only unit in this complex that offers our guests ALL of the following; a personal barbecue grill on your balcony, aluminum and canvas beach chairs, a cooler, hot water in the sinks and showers, a smoke-free environment (smoking outside permitted), car rental and activity discounts information, our exclusive Top 10 Travel Tip Guides on the most popular and most remote beaches on Aruba, the best restaurants - without exception, the coolest casual eateries, pier bars and amazing, romantic, feet-in-the-sand beach dining. We also provide discounts on future travel to Aruba and any of our 7 properties, which is unavailable anywhere else, by anyone else.
We are often asked if any units are different in the complex. Are some better than others? There are several nice units for rent in this beautiful complex, but not all are the same. So if you are shopping around and see differences in rental rates, it is for good reason. There's more than meets the eye. With over 400 5-star reviews of our vacation villas in Aruba, we suggest you be sure that any property you rent in Aruba has good, qualified reviews. All of our properties are first-class, tastefully decorated, comfortable, well equipped and located in the most popular area in Aruba for American, Canadian and European travelers.
This fantastic romantic vacation destination is just one of them and is a good start for anyone looking for an affordable, serene and tropical getaway. It is perfect for honeymooners, those celebrating anniversaries, or anyone in love. It's even a great place for small families, as the courtyard pool area provides privacy and security.
You're just a click away from sipping a tropical drink in the pool as the waterfall trickles down the coral and the palms whisper in the sunny breeze. And you're just a stone's throw from the turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean sea!
Of the 26 units in this complex only about 1/3 are occupied at any given time (on average) throughout the year except for January-March. However, it never feels crowded. And unlike the hotel pools, you will never have to fight for a chaise lounge like at all of the local hotels. If you've ever stayed at a hotel and had to wake up early to put a towel on a chair to guarantee a place at a pool, well then you know what I am talking about. Here you can have peace, privacy and a spot at the pool in the sun or under your own palm tree any time of day.
Aruba has beautiful weather all year long. It is out of the hurricane belt, so it is perfectly safe during hurricane season. The temperature ranges between 80 and 90 degrees throughout the year, with a consistent cooling breeze, making it feel more like 80.
Visit the link at the bottom of this page for more information and be sure to e-mail us for availability.
If you need more than one unit, just let us know. We have several identical units.
If you need a larger property you can check out our other listings on HomeAway, including 929289, 3493931 and 3841103. These are beautiful, 10-star, private homes that can accommodate anywhere from 2 to 12 guests. You may even find some great last-minute specials.
There's no shortage of fun things to do in Aruba, but some of the best things aren't promoted or even talked about. It's a mystery even to us, but we've done it all and we share it exclusively with our guests in our recently released 'Top 10 Cool Things To Do In Aruba That Nobody Will Tell You About.'
It will turn an otherwise great vacation into an amazing one. We guarantee it. Only our guests can experience the island in all its majesty and can see and experience many things they would have otherwise missed. You will not get this from any other vacation rental in Aruba (although some will try! LOL) .
Every travel website, hotel and tourism guide is going to promote the same ten or twelve tourist attractions that make Aruba famous, like Baby Beach, the Divi-Divi Trees, the Natural Bridge and the Natural Pool. If you've never seen them then maybe you should, but there's more... so much more. And you need not miss the ordinary to experience the extraordinary!
With our 'Top 10 Cool Things To Do In Aruba That Nobody Will Tell You About' you will not only get to see all the things that people usually talk about but you be able to see and experience all the great things that NOBODY is talking about. And it's only available to our guests! It will make your great vacation an amazing one.

RESERVATION AND TRAVEL TIPS: Reserving your travel dates as early as possible insures availability. Often times people book accommodations well in advance of airline tickets due to the limited number of properties for rent on an island the size of Aruba. Booking flights at least 2 to 3 months in advance of travel insures the best airline rates. So please know that it is quite common not to book both airline tickets and accommodations at the same time, especially if your travel dates are December through August.
We have been in real estate and vacation rentals for over 10 years. We have rental properties in 3 states and the Caribbean. There's nothing better than working with people who are doing what we all want to be doing, planning their next vacation.
We love the work because it is rewarding on so many levels.
We purchased our first property in Aruba in 2005 and now have have 4 beautiful vacation homes available for vacation travelers. They are great for couples, families, small groups or guy or girl-cations, and like the condos are close to it all!
Check them out and share with family and friends for your next great vacation!
Michael purchased this condo in 2006
Far outside the hurricane belt, Aruba is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. With its daily temperatures averaging 85 degrees, its turquoise-blue seas, amazing blue skies, and world-famous breezes, it's easy to understand why Aruba is the most revisited island in the Caribbean. It's also the reason we invested in rental properties here.
Our condos are unique in that they are beautiful, pool-side balcony units, which is unlike most of the units in this beautiful complex. Only 8 of the 26 units can make this claim. It's lush and green, has an over-sized pool with a wonderful s waterfall, and is completely private. There's nothing like it in the Palm Beach Area.
There is a large bbq and gazebo area for dining outside and entertaining guests and a laundry facility right on site. The pool changes color at night making the courtyard garden glow.
We are just outside the high-rise hotel area, where the nightlife is, so you can be close to action too! There's nothing like it around, and as you can see from our reviews, you won't regret it!
Unlike other condo complexes, this is only 26 units, so it is boutique-like but has a huge pool and garden area making it feel much bigger. It never feels crowded and you're never fighting for a pool lounge.
We are the only units in the complex to offer beach chairs, a cooler for the beach, lots of travel recommendations for your stay to help take the guess work out of where to go and what to do, and information on discount car rental and travel discount cards. We also provide information on what NOT to do, so you save time, money and aggravation.
There's a very distinct reason we have so many 5-Star reviews. We work hard to make the experience as close to perfect as possible for our guests. We hope you will think so too!
My husband and I stayed at this condo for ten incredible days. We honeymooned in Aruba 12 years ago at an all-inclusive resort. I have to say, "Hands Down," I wish I knew about this condo back then. The location was perfect and met all of our expectations. It was so private and relaxing. The accomodations were fabulous. The condo was spacious and very clean. The furniture was so comfortable, but most importantly, so was the bed. The bathroom was very modern and well designed. All the amenities were at your fingertips. The outside was also very clean. There were lounge chairs right outside our room. There were always a few available, unlike the resorts where you have to search for a place to relax.
The location was great. It was close enough to the beaches and a larger supermarket. There was also a smaller market across the street. I usually went there for last minute things.
I would highly recommend this property to any family member or friend. The price is right for all that you get.
The owner was fantastic. He was easy to deal with and gave us lots of helpful information.
I can't say enough about our trip. My husband and I are usually all-inclusive type travelers, but I have to stay, after staying at "Paradise Found," we might be chaninging our minds. I am already trying to talk my husband into going back again next year and staying at the same condo.
Thanks for a memorable vacation. I can't wait to work with you again.
When we made the decision to vacation in Aruba we made the choice to use Home Away for the first time and we were very happy we did. The condo was beautiful and the garden and pool very peaceful. 1 week before we left Michael sent us a list of beaches, restaurants and things to do and see on the island and that was very helpful. When we arrived we had some question and Michael was very quick to reply and he made sure that we had everything that we needed. We rented a car for the duration of our stay and it was very easy to get around the island. you really can not get lost in Aruba. We went to a few restaurants but for the most part we hate at home. Every morning we had breakfast and decided what to do that day, we packed the coolers with drinks and sandwiches and spent the day either relaxing on the beach or exploring. As per one of Michael's suggestions we rented ATVs for the family for the entire day and ended up being our favorite activity of our vacation. We explored and saw the entire island and we had a wonderful time.
Beaches in Aruba have the most breathtaking ocean waters I have ever seen with all the different blues. We also had a great time building the rock structures at Baby Beach and at the wishing garden during our ATV ride.
I was sad to see that the original Natural Bridge fell down in 2005 I remember it and have pictures of it when I was there back in the 80's.
When we decide to go back to Aruba we will definitely stay in Michael's condo.
Exactly what I had hoped for. Stayed for 2 weeks. One with my boyfriend and one with a friend. The condo was very clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The washroom was large, clean and no shortage of hot water. The kitchen was well stocked with necessary dishes and utensils. Mike had given me some great advise on a walking route that I did daily to get a bit of exercise. The condo unit is very safe, with a gated parking lot as well. A small grocery store is across the street which is handy to grab last minute items and change for the washing machine. The communal BBQs were great as well as the eating area. The pool is beautiful. I looked forward to coming back at the end of a busy day of exploring the island. Enjoyed watching ski divers as they made their decent as I lay by the pool! There are cute big and little iguanas around the pool which are always fun to watch. Easy to get around by car. There are lots of things to do nearby and many beautiful beaches! Two times I bugged Mike and each time he was very quick to respond and provided what I needed right away. There was some work being done at the complex but the workmen were very nice and worked around us. Highly recommend both the condo and the island!! Hoping to return home soon & often!!
We only needed 2 nights at the condo because of other commitments, but wish we could've stayed the whole week. The condo was clean and very comfortable. We had a very nice view of the pool and garden. The furnishings were well appointed and the space was very adequate. We had guess and they loved the condo. The location was only 5 minutes from all the nightlife but far away for some peace and quiet. With the market right across the street for our convenience. Mike was very helpful with the rental car suggestion and the map he provided led us straight to condo without worries. No issues with the accommodations and would definitely be revisiting soon.
My husband and I spent a week on the beautiful island of Aruba, celebrating our anniversary-I could watch the Aruba sunset everyday. We stayed in the Paradise Condos in Wacamaya Village, and we were so happy that we chose to reside in the condos instead of one of the resort hotels. I found the property on the Home Away website, and it truly was home away from home. Michael was responsive to all of my questions and quickly addressed any concerns that I had. We were as comfortable as being home, yet we were on vacation. The unit was clean, tastefully decorated, and inviting. The condo village is beautiful and quiet; far enough away from the major hotels, but close enough to the activities in Palm Beach. The grocery stores were close by, so we took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen for breakfast and ventured out to some of the restaurants for dinner. Having a washer and dryer nearby was helpful as well. Additionally, Michael's tips for seeing the island, the best dining places, and the best beaches were priceless. Dining on the beach at the Barefoot restaurant during sunset was amazing. We had a wonderful adventurous week and we would definitely not change a thing and do it all over again. Thank you again Michael!
My boyfriend and I rented Michael's condo for our weeks stay in Aruba. Michael’s condo was perfect! The condo was very clean, spacious and has everything you need. The pool area is very well maintained and there is enough shade and chairs if you need to get out of the sun. The location was perfect too! The condo is right outside of the high rises, but a quick ride to the nightlife/beaches. I would recommend a car, we used Royal Car Rental but getting a taxi at night was very easy (you will need to call). We highly recommend this condo.
As a side note, we extended our trip for an extra day and had the opportunity to stay at Mike’s house at Palm Beach Paradise for one night. Michael arranged for someone to meet us at the condo and show us to the house. The house is BIG. We spent our afternoon poolside and the backyard is huge. The house has all the amenities described in the listing. We only wish we had more time to enjoy the house and the pool table. We’d love to rent this house next year with family and friends.
Overall, Michael is very responsive and made the entire booking experience easy. I highly recommend renting from him.
Please e-mail us for availability.
We strongly recommend renting a car. Many of the best sites, attractions restaurants are not just in the popular hotel area & taxis are very expensive. We recommend a specific local agency to our guests because they have good cars & provide special pricing for our guests. You can reserve online and pay when you arrive. A rental car can cost as little as $40/day depending on the season. Other, internationally known car services, such as Avis and Hertz are also available, but at much higher rates.
Your unit is part of a private, 26 unit complex located 1/2 mile from the popular Palm Beach and Arashi Beach, Tierra del Sol Golf Course, Fine Dining, Resort Casinos, Downtown shopping, and all the water sports offered on Aruba's leeward coast. Enjoy a self-guided tour or guided tour by bus or ATC at Arikok National Park, caves, the world famous Natural Bridge and Natural Pool and much more.
Banks, supermarkets, shopping are all within a short distance from your private condo. There is a small market 2 blocks away for all your needs. And we're just about 8 miles from the airport.
Other Activities: wave tubing, para-sailing, snorkeling, wreck diving, ATVing, guided adventure tours, cave tours, kite surfing, wind surfing, casinos, sightseeing, kayaking, 4-wheeling, caves, submarine ride... and more.
E-mail us for availability.
Golf: One 9-hole golf course at Divi Links or the 18-hole golf course at Tiera del Sol, both just 2 minutes away. Both are spectacular!
With our 5 star-rated condos and houses in Aruba you can expect a 5-star experience. We have more reviews than any other privately owned vacation rentals in Aruba. Skip the crowded hotels, don't limit your vacation experience to a restrictive 'all-inclusive' or waste money on on some 3-star or 4-star property when you can have a 5-star experience and make 5-star memories at one of ours. You won't regret it - we guarantee it.
