It is our pleasure to welcome you as our guests with Island breezes, peaceful surroundings...all in close proximity to the most amazing Beaches & Sunset views! Enjoy !!
My family just spent 10 days at this wonderful house. The owners were very easy to work with. Very quick to respond to questions. We spent the mornings drinking coffee and eating breakfast at the outside patio. Maybe even a morning swim.
The inside was very comfortable. Especially the beds.
The kitchen was complete with anything you might need including cooking spices.
I recommend renting a car. There are so many beaches in Aruba, but you need to drive to them.
The following are some Restaurants that I recommend:
Ricardo 's (Wed is all you can eat grouper)
Las R Ramblos
If you have a late flight out, stop at the West Deck !
We recommend the Ritz Carlton for the Casino. Does not seem to be as smokey as some of the others
I want to thank the straw hat sisters for sharing their home with us. The inside is beautifully decorated with an island feel.
My husband and I stayed at the Straw Hat Sisters Villa in August for our 15 year wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived until the day we left, we enjoyed being surrounded by the many amenities this home has to offer. We loved the beautiful furnishings and felt all the comforts of home- and then some!! This home is a true gem on the island of Aruba! The best accommodations by far! A real treat for such a memorable occasional. Thank you, Straw Hat Sisters, for a lovely stay. We cannot wait to return!!
This was our 2nd time renting this house and we will return. The owners are very easy to work with. The location is excellent, right in the heart of everything. The house is nicer than shown in the pictures, great gated community, private pool. Aruba is so much fun, great beaches and national parks. Awesome snorkeling. We have rented houses all over the world and this ranks in our top 5. You wont be disappointed.
We recently returned from a wonderful week at the sisters' spectacular home in theTierra del Sol golf course community. My husband and I traveled with my daughter, son-in-law and 11yr old granddaughter. My daughter reviewed various properties in many areas of the island, trying to find one that would suit everyone's needs. Sand 'n Sea was our choice! When we arrived, we were greeted by Angela who had some refreshments waiting for us.
The villa was even more impressive than pictured! The home , pool and grounds were meticulously clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped allowing us to make fantastic meals to enjoy in the large outdoor eating area. Each of the two master suites had access to the expansive , private patio area. The villa is perfectly located to provide access to beaches, shopping at the Superstore, dining , etc. We spent a lot of time around the pool, but did visit Arikok park......don't miss it. Roaming donkeys and goats added to the natural beauty of the dunes, beaches and caves. Angella and Nora were very helpful and responsive to all our questions. They were great to work with! This was one of our most wonderful, relaxing vacations and we would choose this property if returning to Aruba.
This was our first time traveling to Aruba. My two children are in college and we rarely have time to all be together. It had been years since we went on a family vacation. Normally when we do get away, we stay at a hotel on the beach. My husband and I kept contemplating whether to stay at a hotel this trip or look into renting a villa. I started browsing VRBO and instantly fell in love with Sand ‘N Sea in Tierra Del Sol. I kept calling the site up over and over again. The pictures kept drawing me in. I emailed the straw-hat sisters and set the date for my family vacation. Nora and Angela are wonderful. They are extremely helpful and available to assist with any questions or to offer suggestions. When we arrived at the Villa – located in Tierra De Sol, we were instantly elated. The place is beautiful. When we arrived at the villa it looked just like the photos. Once we walked inside we were all so excited to know that we would be living here for the next seven days. The backyard terrace with the pool, lounge chairs, round table and patio was perfect. Inside, the kitchen was equipped with everything you would have in your own home. The bedrooms are large and beautifully decorated, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The home is bright, clean and so very welcoming. The pool at the villa was perfect, and the ocean is only a five-minute car drive away. The amenities at Tierra De Sol are a wonderful option. During our stay my son joined the gym, my daughter had two spa treatments and I too enjoyed a Swedish massage. We went parasailing and enjoyed all the downtown shops. We dined out only one night. Each evening we grilled steaks, chicken and fish and enjoyed family dinners at the round table on the outdoor patio. Honestly we all felt so much at home here that it was so very hard to leave. We made some wonderful memories here. I highly recommend staying at Sand ‘N Sea, you will be so glad you did. Thank you so much Nora and Angela for sharing your beautiful Villa with us!
I had an outstanding time staying at the beautiful home of the Straw Hat Sisters. This was a mother daughter trip with my two college bound girls and what a fabulous trip it was. The location of Tierra Del Sol was perfect for us, when this normally over stressed and overbooked family arrived at the villa we relaxed immediately. The poll was outstanding, all the bedrooms were equally well appointed and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need to create some spectacular meals.
We kept in shape with morning runs around the golf course and long walks in the evening on the beautiful grounds of Tierra Del Sol.
The most important thing that I can share regarding this villa rental is that I think that the owners were equally invested in ensuring that this was a fabulous break for my family and I. They were happy to make suggestions and very attentive to any problems that arose (ok-I just don't know how to light a gas grill, mia culpa!) and their response was immediate!
It truly was a most relaxing and memorable vacation for us. We will definitely return and highly recommend this beautiful home and it's wonderful hosts.
Beaches~1/4 mile away; wind surfing, Parasailing, Kitesurfing, Horseback Riding, 'Jolly Time Pirate' Snorkelling & Scuba Diving excursions. A short drive to the Palm Beach Mall, grocery stores & lovely Butterfly Farm is a delight! Plan to visit the California Lighthouse, at sunset for some of the most beautiful panoramic views of the island at El Faro Blanco restaurant & happy hour. Enjoy tranquil Birdwatching @ our villa with peaceful & private sunset views from our front porch with DIVI tree & Copper birdbath!
