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.
Check-in: 4:00 PM
Check-out: 11:00 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
First time we have rented through VRBO, and first time not doing an all inclusive vacation. We totally loved it, specially when you aren't planning on staying put at a resort, this is the way to go. I would not hesitate to rent privately again.
Anita has made the experience easy, she always responded quickly with any enquiries I had. The condo is just like the pictures. The bed was comfortable, the couch as well, never tried the pull out so can't say but have napped on the couch a few times. Both air conditioners worked well, even after being off for most of the day, we found the place not hot at all and once we turned on the a/c, it didn't take long to have the place cold. Kitchen was fully equip, was only missing a can opener (or I couldn't find it). Ice maker was handy for packing extra ice in the cooler, we brought our own cooler but they had a couple in the unit to use, the beach chairs they provided came in handy as we would often go to beaches that had no services. Loved the large shower. Water pressure is excellent, lots of hot water, actually too much lol, found that the water came naturally hot, never had to turn the hot water on.
We never had the chance to use the bbq, but the pool area was paradise in itself, only used it twice and it was always quiet. Most of the time the pool was empty specially during the day, as other guest are often out and about. The only thing I would add is that they should have an outside shower, just to quickly rinse off after a swim. Or before, there were times we came from the beach and would have loved to jump in the water but I was full of sand, so I had to go upstairs first to rinse my feet off first before heading to pool. It's probably reason why we hardly used it cuz once inside the unit, I never went out again.
The place was secure, I always felt safe, the main gate was broken, I believe the parking lot is supposed to be gated as well but at the time of our stay it was down as one of the contractor backed into it. The roofers were replacing the roof but we were never bothered as we are out first thing in the morning.
The location of the condo is great, close enough to main attractions but far enough to enjoy quiet time.
We would definitely rent with Anita and Dave again. And yes, I highly recommend their place.
Perfect escape from crowds
Nice unit with a perfect escape from the beach resort crowds. Unit is extremely close to all the things you would want to do in Aruba. Great pool to relax in the evenings. AC units kept temperatures perfectly comfortable. Love the use of lock box so no need to keep up with key during our excursions. Unit is exactly as pictured, Back of property, so some privacy from pool visitors and main road. You should rent a car to stay here. Owners had excellent response time and great advice on the area. Would certainly stay again. Perfect week.
Excellent. Thanks for taking the time to share. Hope that you will consider us again should your return destination be Aruba. Regards, Anita and Dave
Loved the wacamaya condo
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Wacamaya condo. We were so grateful that they provided everything we needed. It saved us so much money to have all the small items on hand. The beach chairs were also wonderful and saved us the chair rental fee. The condo feels homey and comfortable. Anita and Dave were great and answered any questions right away. I would certainly recommend their condo to any one who wants a relaxing no stress place to stay.
The whole area including parking was gated which was
wonderful as every thing was secure. The care taker on
site was very helpful.
Even though the Island is arid, it has it's own charm &
is beautiful. Everyone we met on the island were nice
Dave and Anita, your place was great! Thanks for a beautiful vacation! You were super responsive to our inquiries, the condo was clean and very comfortable, parking was easy. We loved breakfast (and sometimes dinner) on the balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped garden and the welcoming pool. Your directions were spot on and within just a few days we were enjoying Aruba like locals. The condo was well maintained and it’s especially lovely that you provide starters of basic household needs (e.g., soap, toilet paper, sponge,paper towels). We have stayed in more than one place that doesn’t and it’s hard to start a vacation that way! Your generosity made us feel right at home. Thank you again!
Thank you Natalie and Oleh: for your booking and excellent review. We appreciate it very much and more importantly are pleased that you enjoy the process straight through from booking to departure. I hope that you will contact us again should your travel destination be Aruba. Many thanks and enjoy the rest of the summer. Sincerely, Anita and Dave
No risk, no reward.
My girlfriend and I decided to take a "leap of faith" and go into a foreign country using a service we were unfamiliar with (VRBO) to meet our housing needs. What we found during the process was friendly, of high value and ultimately the best vacation we have been on in a long time.
We were contacted quickly by the owners' of the property and given a welcome packet of instructions. I subsequently contacted the owner about local contacts for vehicle rental and was given a great option.
I'm sure most of you are wondering about the condo. So let's jump into that. The neighborhood is a mix of new and old. I would compare it to a very clean and safe version of Mexico. The secure parking was excellent. The "common area" and pool was one of our favorite parts of the experience. We could go back and never leave the condo on a future visit. That is how much we loved it.
The condo itself had decent finishes. I particularly loved the large shower and well equipped kitchen. The couch in the living room is a pullout that we didn't use, but as a couch it was wonderful. The balcony was great, and the upstairs location was wonderful too.
Overall, the unit was very quiet with the exception of the crazy neighborhood rooster that decided to crow at 4:30 am every day. It wasn't an issue, just an observation.
Like I said earlier, the kitchen was well appointed. We cooked at least once every day and could have had every meal there if we wanted. The local supermarket is adequate, but we preferred the modern "Super Food" down the road a mile or so.
The bedroom had plenty of storage space for clothes in the dressers provided. It did lack a bit of vertical closet space, but it wasn't an issue for us. The mattress was comfortable and bedding was nice.
The entertainment center / tv area in the living room was great. We had access to wifi and a Roku unit was installed. It also had a stereo system as well. I would recommend taking a portable speaker with you for the pool.
I don't like reviews that don't contain some "negatives" for the property. So here is that section. The lock on the front door and lockbox for keys was a bit unusual, but functioned properly once we figured it out. As stated in the welcome packet, managing the A/C properly is a must. I like it cooler, but found that you needed to be ok with say 72 degree temps at night.
Final thoughts.... DO not miss out on this property. It was perfect for us and we will be back. Loved!
Located a 10 min walk to high rise hotels and Palm Beach, and all night life. Grocery store located right across the street. If your requested dates are booked please contact us for additional information
