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

Very Happy with Property

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean, kitchen complete and bath and bed were comfortable. Secure internet access was available and working. Close to downtown and to the beach. Lots of shopping close and variety of eating places. Really enjoyed the stay and would go back!

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.

Host will make you feel like you are at home!

We went for our honeymoon and the owner was very friendly and very accommodating. All we wanted to do was sit on the beach and that's what we did. Cabs were easy to get for other things and we rented a car to explore the other sides of the island. Downtown was in walking distance that have shops and restaurants.

Picture is not up-to-date

  • 3 of 5

The appartment is one of 6 appartments in the house but the one in the pictures is situated on the backside of the house. It is a nice place to stay though, but dark inside and without any 'view'.

The pictures made from 'the penthouse' are not the views you will see from your appartment. I think this is misleading in the advertisement.

The place is kind of noisy (barking dogs, traffic) but it is close to the sea. You can stroll along the seaside to 'down town' for diner every night and watch the sunset. I advise to rent a car and drive to some nicer beaches to get your rest.

just like home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Robert and I have not had a real vacation in a very long time. He decided he wanted to go to Aruba. He refused to go if we were going to stay in a typical hotel. Le Chateau was perfect!!! The property was just as described. Fred, owner greeted us, upon our arrival & offered to show us the local stores. He was very helpful & accommodating. He was better than any hotel manager, anywhere! There is a new condo building being built

across the street from this property, but even the minor construction noise did not effect a most wonderful stay.

The proximity to downtown could not have been more ideal...... beaches, shops, movie theatre, restaurants, night life, casinos, all within a few minutes walk, who could ask for anything more. rest & relaxation...the best of both worlds while we were here. We are sure to vacation in Aruba again...and if available, stay at Le Chateau. We have already told our friends about this property before we left and we raved about it upon our return.(While out on the town we even heard regular hotel guests complaining about the noise and lack of privacy in the big chain hotels...I told them where we were staying and gave them the particulars...all they could say time no hotel for them.)
