Fantastic family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Esmeralda 30 was everything that the owner/website said it would be. We slept 9 plus and infant. All bedrooms were dark, quiet, cool and well appointed.

The house and pool were fantastic. The kitchen was appointed very well. We hired a professional chef one evening and he was able to use all of the pots/pans/flatware/dishes from the kitchen. We ate all meals outside poolside. The fans and breeze were divine. The views from the pool were

marvelous.

The location was great, minutes from Arashi Beach and the Light House. Only 10 minutes to hotels, restaurants, shopping and casinos.

The owner, Anna, and the on site manager, Isan, were a joy to deal with. We highly recommend Esmeralda 30 - it was truly 'Heaven on Earth'!

Truly is Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 adults and an 11 month old baby. This house was perfect for all of us! Half of our group arrived earlier than our check in time but it was not a problem. We were told we could go straight to the house with our things and Isan would meet us there. He gave us our instructions, 2 phones to use while we were on the Island, had a bottle of wine, cheese, yogurt and fruit for us! He told us where to get groceries and answered questions that we had. So nice and helpful!

We had no complaints about the home. We all had kings size beds, the pool was awesome and our view spectacular! Isan told us not to waste our money on bottled water since Aruba had some of the best water in the world!! True! We did not buy the cases of water that we normally would have.

We would recommend Arashi beach since it was close to the house and not as crowded as other beaches.

Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay in your home Anna!! We only wish that our week had not gone by so quickly!!

Beautiful Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Aruban Villa is truly Heaven on Earth. Upon arrival, property manager Isan was very friendly and helpful. The refrigerator was stocked with fruit, juice, cheese, and the local brew balashi which was very nice as we were hungry and tired after our journey. Isan spent plenty of time reviewing the property and offering suggestions for local restaurants, shopping, and answering all our questions. During our stay we had a problem with the ceiling fans however Isan and his dad Martin were very attentive and came right over to correct the problem. The grill, pool, and all equipment worked well. There were plenty of towels, beach chairs, and coolers that helped to make our trips to the beach easy and fun! We recommend Arashi beach as it is close and just as beautiful as the overcrowded beaches by the hotels. Whereas Isan was great and very helpful, the home was beautiful and spacious, the most wonderful part of this incredible island retreat was the views and unbelievable sunsets. The pictures don't fully demonstrate the full beauty and peace of this lovely property.

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.

  • 5 of 5

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!
