About David Truman/ Anita Truman

We are a hands on couple that provide our guest all the extra's they may need to have a great vacation. We spend half the year in Aruba and live one street from the complex. Should any maintenance issues arise then we are just a quick call away.

David Truman/ Anita Truman purchased this condo in 1997

Why David Truman/ Anita Truman chose Aruba

this is a great location. We are only a short 10 minute walk to Palm Beach or 1/2 mile. the condo's are in a very upscale and safe Area of Aruba. Our unit is 1 of onlt 2 that offer oversized western looking windows, that provide lots of extra light, and great sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 8th trip to Aruba. We stayed in all-inclusive, regular resorts, and time shares. This 2 week stay cost us half as much as our most recent trips and was just as enjoyable. The unit was spotless and had everything we could need and then some. The complex was well maintained and the couples around the beautiful pool were friendly. We ate breakfast in the condo and went out for dinner every night. That was our preference, but one could easily eat in. The supermarket is steps away. Huge savings on drinks/coffee, snacks etc. Much more pleasant staying in an apt than in a bedroom. This was our first time renting accommodations through an online connection. Anita and Dave make it easy and secure. They return emails and phone calls promptly and once you connect with them, and ask your questions, you will have no concerns. Nothing could be easier. There are no hidden costs, no surcharges etc. This was a 1st class vacation at an economy price. We would not do it without a car, but, getting around this small island is simple and having a car allowed us to come and go and experience so much more than staying at a resort. On several of the days we relaxed at the pool until we went for dinner. Many of the other guests at the complex had been returning there for years. Everyone spoke English. The people we met were mainly from the states or Canada. There were no young children and the average age during our stay was 55-65 We stayed in an upstairs unit because we were concerned about people walking by on the ground level. The common pool walkway is far enough from the unit that this would not have been a problem. Next time, we will stay in a ground level unit so we can sit right outside our unit and go in to get drinks when we want. On this trip, we packed up the cooler with ice (ice maker in freezer) and drinks. The balconies all face the pool area. We ate breakfast and spent many hours there. We stayed in an end unit 14B which was really bright. The AC worked very well as did everything else. There was WIFI and Netflix, and tons of books on the shelves. Loads of drawer and closet space. Safe for our valuables/passports in the closet.

Aruba has become very expensive in the last few years. it is our favourite destination, because of the guaranteed sunshine and comfortable breeze. Staying at Wacamaya for 2 weeks, cost us half as much as staying at Marriot Surf Club last winter, and that included the cost of the rental car which was a great bonus.

Excellent unit. Everything as promised

  • 5 of 5

Amazing stay. There isn't anything that could have been better. The unit is great. it beats a hotel room by a mile. close to high rise hotels, shopping, restaurants, casinos, and beaches. The intention was to go to the beach most days and we actually spent much more time at the pool and the gardens. All of the other guests and renters in the area were friendly and helpful. It was my fourth time on the island and the best accomodations I have had. Definitely have plans to make it back to Aruba and Wacayma next year. Thank you Anita

Nice vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at “Wacamaya” in Aruba. Condo is very clean and had all we needed. The gardens, courtyard and pool area is absolutely gorgeous. On top of that, Anita and Dave were great and helped with any questions or concerns we had. Wacamaya in Aruba is the very good place for nice vacation. Can't wait to return!

Great condo and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 great days at this condo in August. The property is accurately represented - it's exactly as advertised, with up-to-date furniture and facilities. Great spacious shower. Everything worked just fine and it was clean. Quick communications with the owners all the time.

Pool and gardens were great too (swaying palms, iguanas, tropical bushes) and most of the time we had pool to ourselves. Pool is fairly long - about 20m, so you may do laps in the morning. The location is convenient to get to northern beaches - Malmok and Arashi - about 3 min by car. Boats bring tourists to snorkel at these beaches, which are otherwise very quiet as they are far from high-rise hotel area. Very clear water at these beaches - great for snorkelling.

In short, we would stay there again!

Tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary in Aruba and stayed at the Wycamaya it was wonderful. I had a bad experience last year with accomodations in Barbados so I was alittle gun shy of where to stay this year. I will have to say it was one of the best places we have stayed in our travels. It was as described . Anita and Dave were on the island while we were there and were very great to work with. We were concerned we would miss not having the beach out our back door but the tropical gardens were such a refreshing change from being at the beach all day. It was quiet and peaceful and the price was great. The location was great and close to everything. We rented a car for the week which I would reccomend. We took a day jeep tour with maddys she was great also.

We took Dave and Anitas advice and ate at a couple restaurants they reccomended and wernt disapointed.

The villa air conditioning worked great and we were one of the villas that had a washer and dryer in the unit which made it great. We felt very secure there.

I would come back to the wycamaya most definately.

Thanks Dave and Anita................see ya soon!

Great vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the condo justice; it's even nicer than it looks. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and felt newly renovated. The kitchen had all the equipment you could ask for, including ice maker in the freezer.

The walking distance to Palm beach is accurately described, it took us 15 minutes. The supermarket across the street had most of the things that you need. A couple of nights we stayed home, enjoyed the beautiful and relaxing pool area and BBQed on the balcony.

Anita was very helpful and gave us good suggestions on where to eat etc.

We would definitely go back if we visit Aruba again!

The condo was spacious, clean and it provided everything that a person would need for there trip to Aruba! It was conveniently located within walking distance to the local market and very close to Palm Beach!
