Our Oasis in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 visited Aruba from July 12-July 19. Bella Ruby is very accurately displayed via pictures and narrative on the VRBO site. 3 Bedroom house with individual AC's for each BR. Each Bedroom has its own bathroom. Kitchen was nicely sized and had very nice appliances (blender, dishwasher, fridge, coffee maker, etc) that all worked very effectively. Each drawer in the kitchen was lablelled with what was inside (pots/pans, plates, cups, BBQ utensils, cutting boards, etc) making it easy to find things and to return them. House was very clean and furniture in good condition.

Highlight of the property is the pool and deck area. Nice pool (cleaned 2/week by local service) with swim up bar if you can just find someone to serve drinks from the other side :). Full size grill is in good condition, very clean with 4 burners that all work well. I cooked fish we caught twice on the grill and burgers and chicken without any problem.

Nice security system for arming when you leave and even at night while sleeping. Forgot to tell one of our kids about it and she went outside the next morning tripping the alarm. I turned off immediately but did receive a call within 2 minutes from the security company so we know it works :). Never felt unsafe in Aruba but it was nice to have the security system.

Owners have put a lot of thought into the place .... descriptions throughout the property on how to use things along with a full notebook in the kitchen providing an overview of just about everything you need to know about the property, how to use things, and who to call with problems including the owners if no response from local management company.

I would say the best part of the Bella Ruby property is that you can tell the owners take great pride in providing a well thought out, clean , fun place to live while you enjoy your vacation. It is my understanding that this is their only property and it shows. All the information you need is right at your finger tips.

Our family would definitely go back!

Bella Ruby Made Aruba Bella

  • 5 of 5

Everything listed in Christine and Gary's description of Bella Ruby in HomeAway is spot on. The other families we were traveling with and who also rented homes were envious of Bella Ruby. Christine has not missed anything for your comfort. The pool area is fantastic, even an air pump is provided to inflate rafts. A two car garage may not seem important, but the other families had to park their cars in front of their homes on dusty dirt roads. Security at Bella Ruby is fantastic and well thought out. The kitchen is well appointed with everything required to prepare and serve meals. The refrigerator made copious amounts of ice, we never had to buy bagged ice from the local grocery which made going to the beach a snap. Bedrooms were well appointed and the beds were so comfortable and the showers were fantastic, with plenty of water pressure. Bella Ruby was spotless in every respect and all appliances and air conditioners worked great. We could not have been more please with Bella Ruby and would recommend this home to anyone visiting Aruba. The local property manager we terrific and always checked in to make sure everything was as we expected.

Surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely and extremely well thought out for renters. Quite a few extra touches and often it's the little details that make the difference - aux cable so we could play our music, drying line across tub, coolers, room safe, security system, both a local phone and another to call USA, tip sheets where needed, etc. The kitchen had all we needed and then some; blender worked great for frozen drinks and smoothies. Master/king bed was very comfortable with soft sheets. If you're not renting right on the beach, this is the next best location. Very, very quick access to several beaches saving quite a bit of money and hassle avoiding snorkeling tours. Ran daily from Malmok beach to the lighthouse and back, one of the few places on the island you can gain elevation and the views are incredible - run early to beat the heat. The owners were extremely helpful and easy to work with. We would rent again from them in a heartbeat You definitely need to rent a car staying here but worth it anyway to explore. Phillips Animal Farm, natural pool (I wouldn't recommend the ATV trip unless you enjoy eating dust - we drove to the national park and hiked in about min., if you don't want to hike in, then rent a four wheel drive vehicle ), Jolly Pirates afternoon trip, and wreck dives were all worth it. Come and enjoy Ruby Bella in Aruba - you won't regret it!

Spring Break in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to be able to spend spring break in Aruba in 2016 and had an awesome time staying at Belle Ruby. This ended being a perfect location, close to the ocean, restaurants and your own pool. Christine guided us thru rental cars, fishing for a day, restaurants, snorkel beaches, etc. Our 2 sons did their first sky dive which goes right over the villa. We walked every morning over to the beach across a big dry patch and enjoyed the early morning on the beach. A week is not enough time to eat at all the great restaurants that were recommended. Would definitely recommend this villa and the owner Christine was great to work with. Thanks so much.
