Tierra del Sol Country Club for golf, tennis and spa is a quarter mile down the road, a mile away you'll find wind- and kite-surfing, world class hotels, casinos and restaurants, and you're only six miles from downtown Oranjestad and its amazing boutiques and nightlife. Enjoy the sunset while watching the sailboats pass by. The rear of the home is completely private, and offers a large swimming pool and sweeping nature views. Daily maid service included!

The living area is very open and spacious. It consists of a fully-equipped, modern kitchen with breakfast bar, which opens up to the backyard. The dining area is directly adjoining the kitchen; and it flows into the living room which has ample sitting areas to take in the views. All of these areas are fully air-conditioned with independent controls. There is a TV/VCR/stereo in the living room.

There's a washer and dryer on the premises. And maid service is provided daily. All linens, towels, and beach towels are provided. All utilities are included except for international phone calls.

We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do. And we just ask you -- please do NOT smoke and do NOT bring pets.

Pure Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the most incredible house for a group vacation! Malmok Beach is right in front of the house and has the best snorkeling on the island. The beautifully furnished covered backyard living area by the pool was a great place to escape the sun and visit. Every night we would have happy hour on the front patio to watch the breathtaking sunsets! Each bedroom was furnished with comfortable beds, linens, and plenty of towels. The kitchen was fully stocked with great pots and pans to cook family meals. Anneke was so responsive to any need we had. The house is ideally positioned on the island to enjoy the ocean, runs to the lighthouse, ATVs, and the island restaurants. I can't say enough about Aruba Dreaming, it is definitely the place for the vacation of a lifetime!

Great over all

  • 4 of 5

Aruba dreaming is a great property! There where some issues with a leaking dishwasher and fridge but placed towels for the water. The phone service was working some of the time but when that was out do was the Internet and the alarm. We were a bit frustrated at times but with that being said the pros definitely out weighed the cons. The house was in a great location and an easy 5 minute drive to a swim able beach. The beach across the street was not easily swim able and not great for kids. The supermarkets and hotels very close but far enough away to be peaceful. The pool was great outback and used by the kids daily. The only recommendations would be to get a new net to skim the pool because of the wind. There was no way to clean it. The beds and air condition were all comfortable. The new living room furniture was also wonderful. There were plenty of towels, beach chairs, floats etc.. We had a great time at Aruba Dreaming. I will highly recommend Jonathon and Michelle to cook a gourmet meal! It was so worth every penny. I wouldn't hesitate to rent again. Thank you!

Had a great stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 people in our party so we included the guest house because everyone wanted they're own bathroom. The house was exactly as the pictures presented.The views from the front porch are amazing, and the back outdoor living area with the pool was perfect. We used it every day! No one complained about the beds and the AC worked great but your never really inside for long. Anneke was wonderful. She set up our transportation to and from the airport,arranged for bicycles to be dropped off at the house, and was just a phone call away when we needed any information about restaurants or excursions. The cleaning woman was fantastic!!! She was sooo sweet and helpful.

Our week was packed with activities. Four wheeling ( which was a blast), sea-doos, snorkeling, motorcycle tour, and the best was the Big Mable tube ride!!! Restaurants were great, my favorites being El Gaucho, and Daniels!! Definitely recommend this home!! Bon Bini!!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We have a group of about 6 guys that come to Aruba each year to watch the Super Bowl on the beach. This year we thought we would rent a Villa with a pool. We added 2 more and also included the extra guest house. The location and the layout of the villa is just the best. I would not get the guest house next year. The whole place needs some updating. For what we paid for the place I think it should be better. The beds are just ok. The wicker furniture in the living room should be replaced. The kitchen could use some help too. Enough with the negatives. We had plenty of towels and the A/C worked great. The home has a safe and an alarm system. You can rent snorkel gear at the hotel scuba places and use them right out front of the home. They also have a nice grill for outside cooking. 4 of the rooms have king beds and one of the rooms has 2 singles. This villa is very close the Ritz Carlton. Over all, we would stay there again. Just so you know, this home is worth over 2 Million.

We absolutely loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home tonight after spending a week in Aruba. I already miss it. Aruba Dreaming was a great house for our group. We have 5 couples that travel together each year and I think our trip to Aruba has been one of our favorite. The pool is wonderful and relaxing. We spent hours on the back porch just hanging out. The beach is just steps away from the front of the house. You do have to cross a road but it is not dangerous and is easy to cross. The housekeeper came daily on the weekdays and quietly did her job, she was wonderful.

The location of the house was nearly perfect. It is not quite 2 miles from the lighthouse. We went running nearly every morning and felt perfectly safe. We also went north less than a mile to Arashi beach to swim in the mornings. We rented mountain bikes one day which I would highly recommend and they dropped the bikes off at the house for us. The house is within 2 miles of shopping. There are a couple of grocery stores that are close as well.

We had considered an all inclusive property but were very glad that we chose this house instead. All 5 couples had a fabulous time and agreed that we would love to stay there again in the future. Marina did a great job of making us feel comfortable.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully decorated, comfortable, luxurious, with every amenity, and located right at Malmok Beach where the party boats come to bring snorkelers. Has a fantastic view of the beach area and sunsets from the front of the home through floor-to-ceiling windows which surround the living area. We had a wonderful time. Anneke took excellent care of us during our 10 day stay.

We are astonished at the previous review. We saw no mold or dirt anywhere (too bad, we left our microscope at home), the pool had a few leaves, blown in by the wind which never stops, if they bothered us we would have removed them with the leaf rake which was right beside the pool. Having done a tiny bit of homework we knew without being told there is a road separating the home from the beach. Very little traffic on it, no trouble to walk across. What were the people thinking?
