About Kurt Hansmeier

I was born in Anchorage Alaska and educated in Boulder, Colorado. I currently live in Anchorage self employed as a private lender and real estate agent. I have travelled the world extensively. I have a vacation home on Aruba which I am now listing on Airbnb. I have three teenage children who I adore.

Kurt Hansmeier purchased this villa in 2006

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!

Gorgeous home with fun activities!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 from age 24 to 67 had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful home in paradise. Beautiful pool, volleyball court, pool table, ping pong table, hot tub, grill, outside bar, stereo all made our stay perfect for our group! Great kitchen and living area. Highly recommend! We hope to come back and stay again in the future.

Great location and views were amazing, 4.5 stars

  • 4 of 5

This property turned out to be a great fit for our two families:

- the pool and hot tub are in great working order

- kitchen is modern and appliances worked fine

- AC mostly worked (but sometimes a few units took a break from their jobs and restarted later)

- beds and bedrooms were fine and the mattresses were in good shape

- Javier was always a phone call away, providing assistance on things on the property

Couple items that held the property back from 5 stars:

- bees in the grotto behind the pool were a nuisance sometimes, Javier sprayed them but it remained a minor issue

- when it rained, a few windows in the front leaked (Javier and others were looking into it)

- some bathrooms were more up to date than others

- sliding doors to the outside were tough to open for kids

Overall we would recommend this house to any family or families looking for a nice property in Aruba.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. There have always been a few bees by the water fountain. I think just because of the large quantity of flowers in the area. Sliding doors have been an issue for a few months but new ones are being made. We hope to see you again soon.

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.

Owner's Response: The day after these guests arrived they asked if there was any way we could make the window shades more of a blackout shade. Javier called me and I approved new shades in that bedroom. This review says that there were no shades, but that is just not true. The next day they wrote me to tell me that the shower did not work in that same bedroom. Javier encountered that there was a stream of water coming out of the shower head. I sent Javier to purchase and install a new shower head that same day. The water to that particular bathroom has solar heated water and does not get as hot. I have renovated this entire house since I bought it 12 years ago and every year we have new projects when we have vacancy to update, paint, repair or deep clean. The same day I received this review I received another one from a very satisfied group of guests. The LED lighting is throughout the house and there are switches to turn on all of the lights or just a portion. A majority of all interior lights have dimmers. When This guest was contacted with a followup by us she never mentioned the lights or the laundry list she chose not to include in her review. An attempt was made to speak with this guest after this review was posted but there was no response. We take all complaints and reviews very seriously which is why we have such a detailed walk through on arrival. It was me actually asking her if the cats or chickens bothered her. We have had a number of them over ten years but the first complaint I ever had was this year. I also mentioned to this guest the sliding doors that have a bent track on one door due to folks moving heavy items over it before a wedding. Once I have vacancy I can have that fixed. As far as septic issues this is just not true. We take advantage of the grey and black water of the houses two septic tanks to irrigate our huge garden. The Ritz Carlton hotel does the exact same thing. I live at Aruba Villa Tropical at least 30 days a year. I was just there and we redid all of the landscape lighting and it looks awesome. We are hoping to have a fooseball table delivered by the end of March. Please consider as well all of the other amazing reviews we have recieved over the years and know that your vacation is very important to us and your business is very much appreciated. Thank you.

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!
