The perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 wonderful days at Bella of the best and easiest rentals we have ever had. Before, during and after, Christine was in touch making sure all was well. Marijke met us at the house when we arrived and was friendly and helpful. The information binder on the kitchen counter was a valuable source of information on the house, and all Aruba has to offer .

There is not much to add that hasn't been said by other reviews about the house, beautifully decorated and everything you could possible need for a carefree holiday.

This is a lovely home and the entire rental process was easy and straightforward. No worries ---go ahead and book, you will have no regrets.

Aruba is a safe, beautiful island and these five Atlantic Canadians hope to return to the island and to Bella Ruby. Christine and Gary make you feel like it really is "your" home too!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 10 day stay at Bella Ruby. This was my 10th trip to Aruba. I have stayed in hotels, condos and houses. This was by far the best experience of all. Christine, the owner, is amazing to deal with. She is 100% invested in making sure you have an outstanding vacation experience. The house is very close to Palm Beach in a safe neighborhood. The house is exceptionally clean and has everything you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable, the linens of good quality, plenty of towels. The en-suite bathrooms are all very nice, but the master especially is exquisite! The outdoor space is a wonderful, relaxing place to return to after a day at the beach. The pool is well cared for with bar stools and a bar. The two car garage is a nice bonus so you don't have to park on street (note, one car needs to be small to fit by washer/dryer). There were plenty of Tommy Bahama beach chairs, all in very good condition, along with other stadium like chairs. Christine has literally thought of every detail. You will not go wrong renting this wonderful home!

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that we used a rental property and we could not be any happier with this house! The entire process was very easy and the owners are wonderful to work with. For us the house was perfect for the six people we had and was everything that we needed to have a perfect vacation in Aruba! We will definitely be renting this house again.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Ruby is a perfectly appointed home. Christine and Gary have thought of everything to make a family vacation a dream come true. The house has everything a family needs for the perfect vacation! It is located in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood, which is close to the amazing beaches, and everything the island has to offer. The owners and their management team are warm and professional and they make you feel like family when you stay at the property. We hope to return to the property every year because it has become our home away from home and makes our family vacations effortless and comfortable. Thank you Christine and Gary for sharing your amazing property with our family!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Aruba and since we were traveling with family for birthday celebrations wanted everyone to stay together. This was also the first time to use VRBO. So glad we decided against the high rise hotels and so glad we found this wonderful home! It truly has everything you could need and felt like home. Having the private pool and a garage were important to us. Gary and Christine had a bottle of Prosecco and birthday balloons waiting for us when we checked in. Such a special touch! Staying at Bella Ruby definitely helped make our Aruba experience memorable, already making plans to return next year!
