Guestbook comments from the owner

We just had the greatest vacation in aruba that could be imagined . I seen a recent review for this property and seen that the bad review had some lies in it. they said unit was dirty that was a complete lie we left the place spot less and Jakes people came in after us to clean on the same day they arrived. I thought it was a shame that people would put in false complaints like that. Jake works with every one. The place was perfect in every way. there was only one bad part of the vacation it had to end . every thing was perfect. We are already booked for next year.

Beautiful Gold Coast!

  • 5 of 5

The Gold Coast is a beautiful condo development! We were lucky to find Jake to rent from...other owners at the Gold Coast charge three times as much (we had to do quite a bit of looking when the place we'd been staying for years sold)! This condo is located very close to the pool and the unit has everything needed in it. The location of the washer/dryer in the unit is also nice because you don't hear it making a bunch of noise all night. Ideal set-up!

The Gold Coast is just a couple minutes from the Boca Catalina snorkeling site which is a very popular site (and also offers a nice walking area). You're also just a couple miles to Arashi Beach, which is a very good swimming spot.

We've traveled to many places and been to Aruba multiple times...Jake is one of the easiest people to communicate with/rent from and we will definitely rent from him again.

Very convenient location. The open layout of the first floor was great

  • 5 of 5

The property location is about one mile from Malmoc beach and it's great snorkeling. The property has 3 large bedrooms and three large bathrooms. Very large showers in the upstairs baths. Each bedroom has an air conditioner which was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed the pools but preferred the larger pool, just a 3 minute walk vs the smaller pool which is about 50 ft from the back door. The patio was great for evening games. Super Food is only 7 km away and was the largest grocery store but there were other smaller stores even closer. Having the full kitchen helped keep costs low and and allowed us to splurge on a few nights out for dinner. It was complete with about 8 place settings and glasses as well as plastic containers which were great to store our cut up fruit. Jake had camp chairs and a small cooler for use. The cooler was a must for beach days to fill with water. Ifyou walk for exercise the beach is within range and then you can walk along the paths near the beaches. I would not recommend walking there with your beach gear and flip flops. The unit has washer and dryer for use as well. Baby beach is a 40 minute drive. Palm beach is about 10 minutes with free parking next to senior frogs. Eagle beach is about 15 minutes away with free parking right there.

Poor Management

  • 1 of 5

Arrived on Sunday Feb. 21, 2016 and found no phone service, two of five air conditioners out of service, broken kitchen chair, dirty kitchen utensils. The next day NO Electricity. After hours of work found out it was cut off for non payment for a two month period. Could not reach listed manager, Jerry was not available by phone or answering service. Jake was on island but did not give us contact #. We finally found renter in his other place with # (hours more of our vacation time used!) Twelve hours later Jake offered a place to stay for the two couples in our party. Finally the lights were on at noon after Jake paid his bill. He made a verbal offer to excuse one week of our vacation with a signature that we would not issue a complaint on this sight. He then went home and lawyer up with a contract listing that we were liable for 3 times punitive damages. We didn't agree with this because we didn't do anything wrong. My husband spent two days in bed sick from the exhaustion and nerves over trying to make this "dream vacation" right for all concerned. Ask me about our 80+ year old guest falling in the dark while packing suitcases to move to hotel. Rent at your own risk with Jake, no contract and a fast talking NEW Jersey lawyer!

Fantastic Townhouse Close to Palm Beach Area

  • 5 of 5

Jake is a gracious and attentive host. The townhouse is very well-kept and is as described and more. We were down with our family to attend the wedding of our neighbors. There were 7 in our party and 3 bedrooms were ample room without feeling cramped. Aruba has excellent weather--it is outside the hurricane belt an is very low risk for tropical storms (unlike other parts of the Caribbean) due to the constant trade winds. The townhouse is a seven minute drive from the parking space in front of the townhouse to Palm Beach. Parking at the lot across from the Playa Linda Hotel at Palm Beach is $1 per day. At Palm Beach there are an abundance of restaurants, shops and nightlife, as well as one of the finest beaches on the Island. All beach areas in Aruba are public and you can rent a lounge chair for a minimal charge or take one of Jake's. You need a rental car to fully enjoy the Island. Fun activities to consider: ATV tour in the outback, Pirates Ship Cruise, day trip to Baby Beach.

Dream Break

  • 5 of 5

Hello. My husband, daughter and I returned to Aruba in April very tired and burned out from a long New England winter and working many, long hour days. It was such a surprise to see how lovely the accommodations were; the house was lovely and felt like we were at home with all of the ample space and amenities. We ventured up to the golf course and enjoyed their private pool (for a small fee), which included almost no one at the pool, an amazing sight of the golf course and wonderful staff to chat with. My daughter spent hours jumping in and out of the pool, swimming and enjoy the peace and quiet. The house was so close to everything but tucked away from the busy life of the island. It was a retreat to come back to the island and enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. It was a joy to find towels, chairs for the beach, a cooler and extras within the house which made a huge difference in our vacation. We are very familiar with the island and would like to eventually retire here, and enjoying this house seemed like home.
