This luxurious, private, six bedroom, five bath, oceanfront villa is situated at the northwestern tip of the island in Aruba's most upscale residential area, Malmok. Enjoy the sunset from the veranda or by the water's edge. Also enjoy swimming under the palm trees in a private pool surrounded by a garden oasis.
My wife and I visited Aruba last year and loved Aruba so much, we decided to take our four grown children (all in their 30's) and their significant-others to Aruba for a family vacation this year. We debated on whether to stay in a High-Rise Hotel Resort again or to rent a house. We are so glad we decided to stay at this house. We rented both the main house and the guest house. The place is huge and the back yard and pool are wonderful. It's even better than the pictures show. The bedrooms and living rooms were very spacious, and each of our five couples had their own bedrooms & bathrooms. The backyard and pool area is just as nice as any resort, and we had it all to ourselves. You can connect your smartphone or tablet to the stereo system to listen to your own music both inside and out. The saltwater pool is a great place to hang-out after a long day of snorkeling, shopping, or touring. The landscape lighting, pool lights, outdoor music, and waterfall turn the backyard into your own private tropical oasis. There are just so many great areas around this house to relax and hang out. You can watch the sunset over the ocean from the rooftop veranda, relax in the gazebo, chat under the pergola, lay by the pool, sit on the front porch, or hang-out in the living room. You can walk out to the ocean, where you can swim, snorkel, or just walk along the beach. Anneke Gorter was so helpful both before and during out trip. She always answered our emails and phone calls before & during the trip. She met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the house. Vanessa, the housekeeper, cleaned the house & washes the towels every day except Sunday. She even washed our dirty clothes. They provide towels, beach towels, and necessities such as shampoo, soap, hair dryers, toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags. The house has two safes to store your valuables in. They provide free WiFi and a house phone for free local calls. This house is a great place to stay while in Aruba. The only slightly negative thing about the house is that it has firm beds. Other than that, it was awesome! Best family vacation ever!
I had been looking forward to this vacation for almost a year on the recommendation of a friend. From the moment I reached out to Anneke, I was never disappointed. When the 8 of us walked in the door, we couldn't wait to enjoy every inch of this property. It is spacious, clean and comfortable. Our mornings were spent out by the pool with our coffee drinking up the Aruba sunshine. In the afternoon we headed out to enjoy the island beaches, food and shopping. We would come back tired and full and would end up back out by the pool re-living our day. This property is exactly as you see on the website. There are no surprises and that is what I loved. I hesitate to recommend this property for only one reason....I don't want to share this piece of paradise!!!! Thank you Anneke, you have given us wonderful memories.
Beautiful pool and large back yard. We had a group of 3 couples. Plenty of bedroom & bathroom space with all the amenities you would want. Right across the street from a good snorkeling area. Close enough to the high rises to take advantage of restaurants, casinos etc. but in a peaceful area. Anneke and her team were very responsive when we called them. More amenities than listed on their website (housekeeping every other day, beach towels available). Upper deck a great place to watch sunsets. Would definitely recommend Arubavilla 500 and would stay here again. Sunset cruise with Red Sail was great. Ate at Bingos, Italian restaurant at the California lighthouse and Smokey Joes. All good food. Snorkeling at Baby Beach is a must.
What a pleasant surprise to drive up to the house, walk in and find that what was shown on the web site was really true, better yet, the place is even nicer than in the pictures. We were a large group of 11 adults and one child and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house and grounds were clean and it was obvious the owners took loving care of their property, it felt like a home, not a rental property.
Easy access to the beach, great snorkeling right in front of the house; no need to join a tour!
The pool was clean and refreshing during those hot days! Plenty of shaded areas outside to get away from the sun.
Maid service and pool cleaning were done during times where no one was bothered.
Short drive to town and great restaurants; the lighthouse is only a few minutes drive away; but it's so pleasant at the house you might not want to leave.
Great beach towels were provided so you don't need to bring your own.
In short, I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a great place to stay and relax and enjoy themselves.
Anneke was wonderful, always available to answer any and all questions!
We would definitely go back!!
We had a wonderful week at this beautiful villa. It was a perfect location for our family vacation which included eight adults and four young children. Although the beach across the street was rocky, there were several sandy beaches close by.
The property was clean and the staff was very accommodating. Anneke, the manager, was terrific and a great resource.
We look forward to visiting again.
This rental property become the vacation 'home' of choice for our family of 9, comprised of 20 & 30 year olds; and a 3 year old grandson. Since 2009 we have enjoyed all of the excellent amenities of this fine property: it's layout; spaciousness; yearly upgrades (new beds; flat screen TVs; a completely renovated / upgraded kitchen; etc.) and the attention to detail shown by the management team, headed by amazing Anneke. The bedrooms are lovely as are the bathrooms. The pool / yard area is amazing as is the dining /living area for family gatherings.
As 'repeat clientel' we have come to appreciate the broad range of 'customer service' offered by Anneke from rental cars & taxi / restaurant and shopping recommendations to the timely visits from the pool boy and housekeeping staff during our stay. We have been vacationing yearly in Aruba since 1989 and stayed at many of the high rise hotel properties. Since discovering this rental home in 2009, we feel fortunate to have found a property and owner / manager team that meets all of our expectations, and 'fits' our family to a tee! We are happy to share the good news with other prospective renters ... and look forward to our stay in 2012.
