The pool at night is spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

6 family & friends shared this house and had an amazing 7 day vacation. The house was clean and as pictured. Working with Isan is super pleasant. He provided touches that were very special and much appreciated...for example the fridge had wine and a small fruit platter...nice touch. There was a local cell phone that we did not use but the thought was nice. The laundry room is stocked full of goodness. I cook a lot while on vacation and I must say the stove is really small (fits a 1/2 size pan) but we worked it out a 1/2 pan at a time using both racks. There is NO need to bring seasonings with you, the little cabinet next to the stove is FULL of seasonings if you don't mind using what others have left behind. The outdoor grill is huge...one side is propane and the other is charcoal. We made good use of the grill every single day. The neighborhood is nice and the house is large enough for everyone to have their own space and not be bothered unless they choose to be bothered. I would definitely rent again.

True to its name, Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house from March 12-21, 2016 (2 adults and 3 teenagers). We LOVED it! We have vacationed in Aruba 7 times and this was our first time renting a house. We normally stay at all-inclusive resorts. We were a little hesitant to book a house, but we are so glad we did and plan to re-book next year. We looked at many houses in many different areas of the island. The main reason we booked this house was because of the fact that it has a glass wall around the pool allowing you to look out over the Salina and to the ocean in the far distance. This view allowed us to witness the beautiful Aruban sunsets which we enjoyed each night. Other houses we looked at had large, solid concrete walls all around the outside area. Other features that helped in our decision was the fact that each bedroom had a king size bed; the living room was large with plenty of sitting area; the kitchen was huge and very well equipped; and the pool area was large with many lounge chairs. The Property Manager, Isan, was very attentive and even stocked the fridge with a few items for our arrival; milk, bread, yogurt, cheese, crackers and a bottle of wine. We were told we had a limit to the amount of electricity that was included in our rent and then if we went over that amount we would be charged an additional fee. We only ran the bedroom air conditioners at night for sleeping. During the day and evening we had the front and back doors open which allowed for a wonderful breeze. We never turned on the living room and kitchen air conditioner. We did laundry every couple of days hanging clothes on the line outside and ran the dishwasher daily. We used just over half of what we were allowed in electricity. Halfway through our vacation a very nice cleaning lady came to wash floors and tidy up things for us. The house is a 30 minute walk from the ocean but you must rent a car for getting around and shopping at the larger grocery stores. A small grocery store is only a 15 minute walk down the road. The description of this home is very accurate and the property is very clean and well maintained. The property owner is very nice and will answer any and all questions you have. As I mentioned earlier, we are already making plans to re-book next year. You will not be disappointed if you book this villa - Heaven on Earth.

Four of us have stayed at the house for three years in a row and have already booked it for next year. We love the privacy it provides yet it offers the best view in the development (located very close to the beach, shopping mall, and plenty of activities). The property manager, Isan, is always helpful and is on call 24 hours a day. It is Aruba, so things tend to take a little longer to get fixed or replaced, but the owners and property manager work to make your vacation a life experience. It has always been safe and everyone has always been friendly. Hopefully we will be there many years to come!

Everything was perfect at Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples and stayed at this villa for a week in mid-October. It was completely as described. We spent a lot of time at the pool (why not, with this view and drinks a few steps away). The sunset views were fantastic. Isan was very helpful and very personable. The house had everything one would need and was very clean and well maintained. Beds and sheets were comfortable and the ACs in each bedroom kept the temps perfectly cool. We have stayed in 6+ vrbo rentals and this one did not disappoint! The location was very good if you have a car. We could walk to the beach for exercise. The drive to the hotel area/restaurants was 5-7 minutes. We rented 3, 2 person atvs one day from George's and drove all the way around the island (lighthouse, trails, national park, baby beach). It was a blast. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this villa and for the off-season price and the views....can't be beat!

family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We spent two weeks in this lovely home July/Aug 2015 for a family vacation for 4 adults & 4 kids. The house is almost as pictured; no romantic white drapes around the four poster bed, but on the whole it's pretty much 'as seen'. The house is very clean and comfortable, tastefully decorated, with an extremely well equipped kitchen. The stove top is 4 burner gas but one didn't work well so it was a challenge cooking for 8 on it but with the oven, microwave and outdoor gas grill, we manged to turn out some pretty good meals! The ice maker had a job keeping up with our demands but we brought ice from the local market, lowered our expectations & did just fine with it. Electricity is pricey so we just used the ac at night - there's a unit in each room. The house is in an unfinished neighborhood & we were not made aware before we arrived there was a home under construction right next door with workers there every day, including weekends from 7 am until late in the afternoon/early evening. It was noisy. The road to the home is a short dirt road that ends in a cul de sac. The home opposite and next door both have dogs that bark at every opportunity - 6 am canine wake-up call! The view over the Salinas is pretty, especially at sunset but is a little spoiled by trash caught in the bushes between the house and marsh. The pool area is idyllic with an outside shower, huge table & chairs that we ate at every day, sunbeds, comfortable seating & a hammock that everyone fought over :)) We used the pool every day & we all loved it. The 'bubble pool' is a great place to lay, sip a drink & read a good book! Caution: once the surrounding tile gets wet it is very slippery! We put down towels to walk on & made sure we were dry before going inside the house. Pool & house cleaned twice weekly. There are beach chairs, a cooler & lots of beach towels to use. The caretakers were very helpful and communicated by email. You definitely need a car to get around. Recommend shopping at the big supermarket about 10 mins drive for a really good selection. Eat at Zereovers for fresh fish & shrimp on the way back from Baby Beach (good snorkeling). Wind surfing lessons were fun. We rented a 4 wheel drive to do the Natural pool - quite an experience & not for the faint hearted! Golf and tennis are minutes away. There is a constant breeze but the sun is very strong - take lots of high spf sunscreen with you! Locals are friendly and we felt safe. Aruba the Happy Island - we loved it!

Very clean and well-maintained house.

Very clean and well-maintained house. Spacious kitchen, living room and bedrooms. More than enough space for 2 families of 10 people. Really nice pool. Safe and friendly neighborhood. We would definitely come back if we could.
