About Brett Kelly

My wife and I have been vacationing in Aruba for over 30 years. We have stayed in many different types of hotels and time shares across the island but fell in love with The Residences at the Divi Links property. A year ago we decided it was time to buy our own place in this paradise. We chose this condo penthouse property over other condo facilities because it was the only one that offered both privacy and hotel like service. The other condo facilities on the island were very dark and almost too quiet. I wanted to be able to pick up the phone or go to a front desk if I needed too but still have my privacy. This gave us the best of both worlds. We hope you will enjoy our slice of paradise. The people are wonderful and the weather is always perfect. It is hot but always with a slight breeze so you never feel overheated! My wife and I can give you numerous list of places to eat and things to do! Have fun and enjoy. Call us if you have any questions..

Brett Kelly purchased this condo in 2010

Why Brett Kelly chose Oranjestad

My wife and I chose this location to call home because it has access to the best beach on the island. The island of Aruba is very small (only 19 miles long). There were basically 3 locations on the island to consider when we were looking to buy a home. The high rise area which has all the major hotels and has become extremely crowded (tough to get space on the beach). The downtown area which is where all the ships come into port and is truly a 'shopping area'. The 3rd location is considered the 'lowrise' area. We fell in love with this area and chose to call this home because this part of the island has the best beach, is quiet yet has good access to casinos, restaurants and activities. There is no fighting for a seat on the beach and in our opinion truly captures the heart and soul of 'Aruba'.

What makes this condo unique

*Private Rooftop terrace

*Total easy access to Golf, Tennis, Spa, Nail salon, Fitness center, casino, 5 restaurants, 4 pools and Water sport activities right on the property. All new Roof top furniture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is every bit as beautiful as your pictures. We loved the condo with its 2 balconies and the amazing roof top deck that we are still talking about that it is private. The communtity and the staff were great. The pool directly across froom your condo was practicly ours every day in between us skipping to the beach.



Thank you so much for your help and great recommendations. We instantly felt at home and can not wait to go back. You were such a gracuious host and trully appreciate you sharing your little slice of paridaise with us.



We loved it!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I was initially reluctant as I always booked resort hotels. If u are.....don't be. This place has everything you could need. Definitely rent a car if u want to explore but u don't need to. The beach across the street is awesome. I had one minor mechanical problem when I arrived. Brett literally called me bk in 4 minutes to the condo to resolve the issue. Would definitely stay there again

Great home base for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Aruba multiple times over the past few years and have been wanting to bring some family with us. We fortunately came across Brett and Lisa's condo listing and it is by far one of the best places we have stayed at in Aruba. We were able to comfortably sleep 6 adults in the unit. The unit was clean, had plenty of space, and the amenities were exactly as described. The roof deck (w/hot tub) was a great space for relaxing, grilling, and hanging out. Perfect spot to wind down and watch the sunset after a long day at the beach. Brett was very helpful and responsive leading up to and throughout our trip. We are very happy with our experience and would like to thank Brett and Lisa for the opportunity to use their condo for the week.

TRULY AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd time in Aruba but first time staying at a condo that is perfect for families to stay. My husband and daughter stayed at your amazing place with our good friends and their kids and we all were extremely comfortable and had plenty of room. Super close to everything in the area; supermarket, beach, all the amazing restaurants, and the pool, (which my daughter was in heaven going down the slides in the pool several times.) The view from the condo was amazing with access to the rooftop. We had steak dinner which was possible because we access to the BBQ and the kids enjoyed the Jacuzzi for a little bit while we hung out watching NFL in the outdoor air.

Thank you Brett and Lisa for allowing us to stay at your place. It was absolutely a perfect vacation.

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first time in Aruba & I can say it definitely won't be our last. The weather, the beaches, the restaurants, the people...all fantastic!!! This condo absolutely helped in making our trip perfect! It had everything we needed & then some. The location was ideal. Close to the beach, supermarket, restaurants, town & although the complex has a few pools we loved being just a couple minute walk to the pool with both the slide (for our kids) and the swim-up bar (for us)! Everyone was happy! The rooftop is beyond amazing, we enjoyed a nice steak dinner thanks to access to our own BBQ. My husband & boys loved watching the NFL draft under the stars.

Brett & Lisa, thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in your fabulous condo. We will definitely be back!

A little slice of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

ARUBA!! This was my first time in Aruba. This condo was amazing! The pictures do not remotely do it any justice. The beds were super comfortable and the place had more than enough room! And the amenities?? Everything I needed was there. I sincerely felt as is I was home - with a much better view. :) The rooftop was so relaxing and private. I enjoyed watching Kobe Bryant's last game while in the Jacuzzi - outdoors. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this condo!! The resort had golf carts at every turn and we had a ride to everywhere within seconds. Thanks for the great stay :)

Outstanding Experience

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples) had the opportunity to stay in this penthouse condo and can't say enough good things about it. We were here for one week but wish it had been much longer. The condo had everything we could possibly ask for.

It was furnished perfect, had all the essentials, was clean and in a great location. One couple had stayed in the high rise area a number of years ago and this location was far superior. Restaurants, shopping, casinos and beach were all right there with a fraction of the crowds and noise. Everyday it was beach, pool, sun and nice breeze. Quite the relaxing time. Loved the rooftop terrace though with all of the things to do didn't use it as much as we would have liked. Good problem to have. Recommend, Mulligans Restaurant on the grounds, Taste of Flavors by the casino and Giannis in Palm Beach for good Italian food. A must do is the UTV tour to the Natural Pool, Park, etc. Don't miss it.

Thanks so much to Brett and Lisa for making the Aruba experience a wonderful one. Their help, assistance and prompt attention was greatly appreciated. We have been renting through VRBO for many years and I can honestly say that this was one of the easiest bookings done. I promise that we will be returning very soon.
