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 Malmok

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 manager

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.

Great rental unit and property

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we have rented this unit in Aruba but we have been coming to the island for many years. The unit is perfect for the two of us as it is situated on the northern end of the island close to our favorite beaches and just close enough to many of the hotels and restaurants by car. The unit is tastefully decorated and has all of the amenities needed to be self sufficient for our stay. The property is well maintained as well and is quiet. A small grocery store/market diagonally across the street makes it easy to walk across the street and purchase anything needed on a daily basis, although a car is pretty much needed to get around the island. Dave and Anita are close to the property as well and are very attentive to any needs that arise.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This unit is located in a fantastic complex. Location was great and very close drive to downtown, beaches and grocery stores. The condo was very clean and well equipped with everything needed for the stay. King bed was very comfortable, AC worked well and the pool was amazing. The owners were friendly and provided us great instructions with everything we needed to know about the condo, island and where to eat. We definitely recommend this unit and will be returning!

Great winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great for a couple for a getaway. Weather in Aruba is fantastic. Really loved eating breakfast on the balcony every day, internet speed and connectivity is great for those who still need to do some work while vacationing. Pool area has both shade and sun and is very tranquil. Neither road traffic nor the local rooster were an issue - the King sized bed is super comfortable and we both slept really well. Beach chairs are a bit heavy for lugging around but really appreciated having chairs provided. Really feel a car is required for this location. Appreciated the selection of books to read as one of read while one of us worked! Bring your own bags to the grocery story or buy one for $2.95 (we shopped at Superfoods). Gas upgrade in the parking lot daily was a bit of nuisance with the early start to the work, but this project will be over soon I assume. Would stay here again.
