Excellent Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Safir 18 over Christmas and had a great time in Aruba and at this home. The home is very well decorated and has everything you would need for a stay. We enjoyed the pool, gazebo, and cooked out on the grill a few times. Francois was very friendly and although we didn't need much I had the impression that he would be right there if needed.

For beaches, we loved Arashi and also rented a Jeep and spent some time on the Eastern side of the island. For restaurants we did a couple nights out on the pier restaurants in the high rise hotel zone and also had a great meal at Que Pasa closer to downtown.

So overall, the house was great, the weather was awesome and we found everyone on the island super friendly. Great trip! Thanks to the owner Gary and to manager Francois for the accommodations.

Will Definitely Return. Our Home Away From Home.

  • 4 of 5

Francois, thank you for your efficient and cordial hospitality during our stay from December 5 through December 12 (2015). Once we arrived at the airport, the pick up for our rental car was delayed approximately one hour due to non-availability of a car rental. This delay caused us to arrive at the residence much later than expected. We noticed that in the area there were no street signs which made it very difficult to find the residence after dark. However once we settled in it was an absolutely wonderful stay. The beach chairs, towels and coolers were very useful as well as the cell phone which was provided. The grounds were quite beautiful. The only drawback we experienced was the inability to enjoy the pool as much as we would have liked. Even though the groundskeeper did an adequate job cleaning the pool, the extremely high Aruba trade winds were the constant cause of the tropical foliage being in the pool daily as

the pool is surrounded by much foliage. The accommodations were more than adequate for our group of 8. We look forward to returning in 2016 and thank you again for everything.

Beautiful House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Aruba many times and stayed at our timeshare unit, but were travelling with more people this time and decided to try a house. Extensive searching of VRBO and Homeaway websites led us to Safir 18. It looked beautiful, but pictures don’t always give the full ‘picture’ of a site. Plus we were a bit skeptical of sending a lot of money to essentially an unknown entity. Once we made it to Aruba, Francois met us at the house to give the tour, explain the security system and remotes and turned us loose. I can now say, the pictures don’t do the house justice. The landscaping, pool and house are absolutely beautiful. It really makes you feel almost like royalty to have access to such a great place. I would recommend it to anyone.

In addition, the location was quite convenient to Palm Beach restaurants and activities, Arashi , and Malmok beaches, and not that far to the new Superfoods grocery store. We like to snorkel and Arashi and Malmok are the places you see all the snorkel trip boats stopped. We could drive there in less than 5 minutes and snorkel for free, right alongside the snorkel boats.

One concern we had was the extra utilities (water and electric), but I read the meters every morning and did a little calculation to see how we were doing. We avoided running the AC in the two big high ceiling rooms, but with doors open front and back the normal airflow kept it very comfortable. We only ran bedroom AC in the evening and the end result was that we were refunded about half of our utility deposit on check out.

This is the place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Aruba and we couldn't be happier to be able to enjoy this beautiful home on a beautiful island. The neighborhood makes you feel right at home and very comfortable. Once you step inside you instantly get the feeling of home away from home. The house is nicely appointed with everything you need and want. The pool was one of our favorite things to enjoy after a long and busy day of exploring. The gazebo was perfect for a relaxing breakfast. If your looking for a perfect place to stay while visiting Aruba, look no further this is it. Thank you to Francois for the wonderful welcome see you next time.

Quinta Las Palmas

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? I did a ton of research, as I usually do before traveling on where to stay. This was our second trip to Aruba and it will not be our last. If you haven't been to Aruba, shame on you. Aruba is one of the best if not THE best Island in the Caribbean. So much to do and see, or do nothing at all. We have travelled extensively and we just love it. Alright, to the house. Quinta Las Palmas is in a great little neighborhood surrounded by beautiful homes. The pictures are great, but the house is so much more. The property manager, Francois is great and he'll take good care of you. Francois lives close by and is available should you have any issues. During our stay we did have one major issue during our stay, time, not enough of it. The house is well appointed with everything you would expect from a 5 star rental home. CLEAN, very clean. This is very important to us and Quinta Las Palmas did not disappoint. The bedrooms, bathrooms, pool, patio, grounds all fantastic. Look no further, you've found paradise! Enjoy!

Mi Dushi Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Once again my family would like to thank you all for a great, relaxing and comfortable stay in this beautiful house. We would count the days down in anticipation of our 2013 Thanksgiving vacation holiday knowing our accommodations were going to feel like a home. This was our second stay at Safir 18 and now a family tradition for celebrating future HS graduations/trip/gift to our children for a week. Once again the family was extremely pleased with our stay and holiday vacation. This year my wife's mother tagged along and as she stated, --this could not have been a better vacation and accommodations (room for all). Aruba is a special destination for our family and Safir 18 just makes it feel like a second home. We also enjoyed being the first guests to enjoy the new recliners after a stressful day at the beach, Bugaloe with friends and evening swim in the pool with a night cap. Nice addition!! We can hardly wait to make our plans for our return and to see the new back patio additions. We used and enjoyed the grill, pool and patio every night. Special thanks to Phillip who was filling in for Francois during our week. Phillip was very resondsive to all our needs. Great people! A true pleasure to deal with all around.

Many thanks and hope to see you soon;

Bea/Joe & Family
