Why Kurt Hansmeier chose Boegoeroei

I first came to Aruba in 1999 and saw people windsurfing on a high wind day. I came back 3 months later for a 30 day trip to learn how to windsurf. Fell in love with the place. This is my third home on Aruba. It is a dream home. Come have fun on Aruba.

What makes this villa unique

Large 3 acre lot with a white sand volleyball court in the middle of a fruit tree garden. This house has every amenity you could ask for. A private resort.

Amazing back yard!

  • 5 of 5

This house has plenty of room and an awesome backyard/pool/hot tub with a view. Very private and quiet. They provided plenty of linens, kitchen appliances, towels and a local cell phone. The staff also set up a private horseback tour and snorkel tour. You will need a car, but it is only a short drive to the beach. Be prepared to use landmarks instead of street names. I would also try to get an address for the house because we had some trouble getting through customs although it seems they do not use addresses in Aruba to get around. It was a great house to relax in. Enjoy!

Very Impressive, Excellent Views, Overall Great!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at The Tropical Villa, pulled around the circle driveway, and the home was beautiful and impressive. We were met at the door by Javier and his lovely daughter. Javier gave us a very thorough tour of the home and how to work the TVs, DVD players, Apple TV, safes, and everything we needed to know. We had 7 adults and 2 children. Everyone was very comfortable and easily had enough room.

After going through the inside and seeing how cool and beautiful the home is, we went outside and everyone was blown away!! The pool with waterfall, pool table, volleyball sand court, The cabanas, hot tub built into the deck with a Million dollar view of the ocean. I said Bill, “ we hit a home run bro!!” And Bill blurted, “ this is a Cubs Grand Slam!!”

The pictures are amazing online, but still do not give this home justice as to how it makes you feel when you walk around and take in the beauty and peace it brings. Book the home, you will be very pleased you did. Thank you Kurt for a great home to spend Our families Christmas in, ( and the Christmas Tree and decorations everywhere!!). This was our 5th Christmas in Aruba and the best overall!!

Thank you very much.

Ron, Nicole, and family!!!!

Septic waste takes away a lot of the beautiful property

  • 3 of 5

We found AVT to be just ok with the potential to be a great property if it receives the appropriate TLC. The grounds are beautiful and we very much enjoyed the garden gazebo, volleyball court, and awesome pool and jacuzzi. The house itself is very spacious. The MBR, its bathroom & kitchen are modern. The layout of the rooms is well thought out. The beds were very comfortable. Unfortunately this is where the positive aspects end. The pictures that you see online don’t do this home justice but unfortunately not in a positive way. The secondary bedrooms and bathrooms are overdue for a renovation. Sinks were clogged, fixtures were old, bathroom doors wouldn’t lock, and one shower and kitchen never had hot water. Because of the non working shower in the 5th bedroom we had to share one shower with 4 people. We did address this with the owner but it was not corrected. There were quite a few cats & chickens which we actually enjoyed but I can see how it would bother other people. Especially since once in a while the cats would bring us presents in the shape of dead regurgitated lizards. The house had bright white LED lighting which is uninviting at night. One day we had two leaks because of rain - one by the window by the front door and one major one in the 5th bedroom. The sliding doors were difficult to open but according to the owner new doors will be installed soon. Lizards kept leaving droppings on the laundry room folding table because of a gap in the outside door. One of the bedrooms did not have any shades but this was corrected after we brought this up with Javier. The one thing that surprised and bothered us the most was that 5 times during our stay we had a truck pull up and dump septic waste right behind the fence in the back yard through a permanent flex pipe. One time the driver actually grabbed a folding chair, sat down in the yard and watched as human waste with toilet paper and baby wipes was being dumped right next to the volley ball court. The hand book does mention that septic water will be dumped ‘once or twice a week around the fruit trees’ but we felt it was pretty unsanitary. We could have brought up more of our concerns but in all honesty you are on vacation and just don’t feel like going through a laundry list. Most of these things should be obvious to the people who rent this out by doing a simple walk through every so often. All in all we had a great vacation but we will be looking for another home next time.

Five-bedroom home away from home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Not only does this place comfortably sleep you, your entire family, and a guest or two to boot, it’s also equipped with tons of amenities to make your stay feel more like home. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or drinks at the huge covered backyard dining table, followed by a dip in the pool or hot tub, or a game of volleyball. The interior of the home is spacious, with two separate lounge areas so you’re never competing for space. And the nearest beach and shopping market are only a few minutes away by car!

Best Rental Home Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so excited when we walked into this house for the first time. The kids were soooo excited and we realized we had hit a home run for our vacation rental decision. We had always stayed at hotels before but this house was even better than the web page described it. Our kids played volleyball every day on the white sand court. My husband absolutely loved the kitchen and everything it had in it. We played ping-pong every afternoon and enjoyed the sunset every night from the hot tub. The gazebo sound system by the pool really put out amazing sound and there is an apple tv in every bedroom. We were completely pleased with this home and it was the best vacation has had in a long time. I highly recommend this home as it absolutely amazing. We will definitely stay here again in the future

Awesome spacious, fun place to stay in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

Glad we picked this place to stay in Aruba. This property is beautiful! Place was spotless when we showed up. The caretaker was very nice and available whenever we needed anything. My family enjoyed all the amenities this property had to offer. Very spacious, with plenty of rooms. We were extremely comfortable and felt safe for the entire week. We will definitely be staying there again in the future.....
