For over 10 years we have been the highest rated and most reviewed condo in Aruba. We're sure you will LOVE IT.
Welcome to Paradise! It's unlike any other condo in Aruba. This has more 5-STAR reviews than any other condo in Aruba. It's quiet, beautiful, sleeps up to 4 people and is close to everything that is anything in Aruba. Located on the northwest leeward coast of Aruba, it is near the most popular of Aruba's many beaches, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, golfing and every imaginable water sport. If you are familiar with Aruba, we are close to the Marriott.
Only 1/4 mile from Palm Beach and Hadicurari Beach, a popular windsurfing beach, your private condo is within 1 mile of Boca Catalina, Malmok and Arashi Beach and just 2 miles from the world famous Eagle Beach.
Your beautiful balcony suite overlooks a water garden paradise with a winding 85' swimming pool, waterfall, king and coconut palm trees, tropical gardens, a large gazebo, picnic patio, and lots of warm breezes, bright sun and blue skies.
All of our past guests have stated in one form or another - "Stay once and you won't ever want to stay anywhere else."
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. This will make the great vacation an amazing one! We guarantee it. Accept no imitations; this is isn't tourist-trap nonsense off the internet.
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 (all 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!
With only 26 units in this complex 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 a larger property you can check out our other listings on HomeAway, including 929289, 4748951, 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.

Thank you and Happy Travels!

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 13 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 5 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
Why Michael chose Bakval
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!
What makes this Condo unique
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!

First time to Aruba... WE'LL BE BACK!
Stayed a week at this condo. Quite spacious for a 1 bedroom. Clean and updated as described. A small problem with the internet was addressed promptly by Mike the owner and his manager Papito. Mike kept in touch with us throughout our trip, making welcomed suggestions on restaurants and attractions which all turned out great.(go to Zee Rover in Savetena for boat to plate fresh seafood!) Snorkeled at all the nearby beaches. All beautiful. I did not know that water could be so many shades of blue. Amazing trip and the locals are very welcoming.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with other potential guests. We're thrilled you had so much fun and plan to return! Please accept 200 dollars off any future stay at any of our 5 properties.

The property was excellent and in a great location
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful first trip to Aruba. We had everything we needed and we enjoyed every minute of this fabulous vacation at Paradise Palms (Wacamaya). Mike is the best!!!!! I wouldn't book anywhere else. We cannot wait to go back. We kitesurfed, windsurfed, scuba dove, and snorkeled. Paradise Palms is its own slice of paradise within Aruba, an island that itself is Paradise on Earth.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay. We are thrilled that you had such a wonderful time. We hope you can make it back to Aruba soon and stay at any of our 5 properties, from our 1 bedroom condo up to our 5 bedroom house/villa. And please accept $200 off any future stay at any of our properties.
Thanks again and happy travels!

Wonderful condo for a couples getaway!
The condo was a perfect place for my husband and I. It was just as advertised and Mike the owner was awesome to work with! Can't say enough about his knowledge and response time! Would recommend him and this condo but would also have no problem renting any of his other properties as everything was what was promised. Looking forward to returning and going thru Mike again.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. The property was accurately represented on the website
The accommodations were very clean, and spacious. Although we didn't do any cooking, the kitchen seemed to be well stocked for those who want to cook meals. Michael provided us all sorts of information about things to do and see on the island. When we had difficulty accessing the internet, Michael responded to my text message within 5 minutes, and we had no trouble with the extra information. The pool area is very well maintained, and there is ample lounge area for everyone.
Paradise palms condo very clean, well stocked. The pool area was very nice Not crowded . Mike the owner left us lists of best beaches , restaurants, things to do ,this was extremely helpful . We fell in love with all the beaches especially Eagle beach !
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Aruba. It really is an amazing place, which is why it is the most re-visited island in the Caribbean. Thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers and potential guests. Please accept two hundred dollars off any future reservation for you and your fellow travelers. We have 5 great properties, so we hope you come back soon to visit any of them!
Thanks again and Happy Travels!

Fabulous home away from home!
What a pleasure to stay at Paradise Palms condo. Clean, and extremely well furnished. Totally enjoyed our stay in Aruba! We will be back!
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.
