A wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in Aruba. The apartment was nice, clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The location was very convenient and we were able to walk anywhere we wanted to go. There was no noticeable noise from the busy street. We especially enjoyed the private balcony on the back. We left home in below freezing temperatures and thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and sunshine. Fred was a most hospitable host. Upon arrival we had a mix-up with bags and he went beyond expectations with advice and helpfulness. Thank you, Fred, for sharing your home and for the aid you gave us.

Convenient and nice for the money

  • 3 of 5

The house is lovely but not quite like the picture. It's an older home right next to the one next door. This isn't a problem, however. Our unit was a one-bedroom and it was adequate. The shower in the bath was small but okay. The bed was very low to the floor with a nice mattress (no box spring) on top and quite comfortable. We didn't have beach chairs but beach towels were provided. Needs more glassware for the kitchen but had plenty of cookware. Very convenient to downtown -- can walk to shopping and restaurants. The beach is across the street a block or so away, but it's not really a good one. Really need a car to drive to a park about a mile or two away with lovely beach with chairs/umbrella to rent, restaurant and nice facilities. Fred is a wonderful host. He invited us to his place to watch the Carnival (parade) and served sandwiches to all of his guests. He had lots of good suggestions for any activity/restaurant you wanted. Aruba is windy, and that is putting it mildly. But, you never really get hot either. The people that live and work in Aruba are the nicest/happiest people we've ever dealt with on the many islands that we've visited. Made the trip even more wonderful.

We'll be back!!

  • 5 of 5

This centrally located Villa was just perfect for our 8 day stay in Aruba. Fred is an amazing host. He was attentive to our needs, and was always smiling. (I suppose I would be smiling everyday if I lived in this house, too.) The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. We chose to stay in the apartment on the lower floor. Although there wasn't an ocean view from this apartment, it felt so tropical. We had a private entrance and shaded courtyard that made you feel like you were in your own private garden. We didn't spend much time at the apartment, so a 24/7 ocean view wasn't that important to us. Only steps from the gate is that unbelievable view of the ocean and cruise ships, with a sunset that will just take your breath away. This Villa is within walking distance of MANY great restaurants on and off the water, and the usual tourist shops. We did rent a car so we could explore the entire island. Parking right on the street was priceless. I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone visiting Aruba. We had the time of our lives. Thanks, Fred, for everything. Looking forward to sharing that glass of wine with you next year. Wayne & Linda

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 9 days at Le Chateau. It was absolutely perfect. One block from a lovely beach which was almost completely empty, two blocks from the Renaissance, and easy walking distance to downtown (groceries, shopping, etc). The apartment was huge and very clean. The kitchen was furnished with everything we needed. My one concern was that there would be road noise but I was pleasantly surprised to find it very quiet. The home is built of concrete and we couldn't even hear other guests. "Fred", the host, was extremely friendly and helpful.

One thing to remember: this is a vacation rental, not a condo. It does not have a pool and does not have daily maid service. It is a comfortable, fully furnished apartment in a gracious host's home.

I highly recommend it to someone looking for an independent experience.
