Nice, cozy and well organized house in Aruba
Our stay at Casa Dora has been great. Cleaning was really accurate and well done. The small pool has been a great playground for our kids; kitchen is well equipped and you can find everything you need for cooking. Despite we are not crazy for air conditioning, there are very good A/C equipment in every rooms. Jeanine was immediately available and supportive any time we had necessity or simply questions. Honestly we did not miss anything at Casa Dora...enjoy it!!!
Thank you for your kind words! It has been great having you and thank you for keeping my home in great shape. Hope to welcome you and your family again some time in the future. I'm happy, if your are happy.
Wonderful Aruba vacation
My husband and I stayed at Casa Dora for 11 days in April 2018. The house is exactly as the pictures shown on this site. Kitchen is well equiped with everything you need to cook as well as spices, oil, plasic wrap and aluminium paper. The BBQ was great to grill meats purchased at Super Food. Wi-Fi worked well. We enjoyed the small pool to cool down after a day at the beach. We were very happy to find the beach chairs and the cooler behind a wooden pannel near the front door; we used them every day. The air conditionned worked well (we used it only at night) since we were off to the beach all day. We did self check-in and out and it worked well. Someone comes by twice a week to clean the pool. The house is perfect for a couple or even a couple with small children because the second bedroom is small and equipped with two single beds. The bathroom is small but it did the job. We recommend this house.
It is preferable to have a car so you can explore all the beautiful beaches in Aruba. We spent our time between Arashi beach (for the great snorkeling spot where a lot of catamaran come with tours) and Eagle beach because it is beautiful, quiet and you can do long walks; both beaches within 5 or 10 minutes by car. We got to the beach around 8:30 am each morning and we were able to secure a free palapa to put our chairs under. If you come later, you probably need to rent an umbrella parasol. Palm beach is not our style (very busy beach with lot of activities and people but it might attract a different crowd. Looking forward to our next Aruba vacation.
Relaxing, Easy, no-hassle, great area of the island to get to just about everything.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this bungalow. The area is great to get to multiple parts of the island, neighborhood is very quiet. We rented a car and we were able to travel all over the island very easily. The house has a great patio area and an open floor plan. We absolutely loved it!!
Charming, functional house
We loved everything about the house! It had absolutely everything we needed. The location was convenient, easy access to the best beaches. We loved spending time in the yard. It was a nice surprise to find snorkeling gear, we made good use of the equipment.
Jeanine was super-helpful, surpassing all our expectations. Every question we had, she responded quickly. Thank you for being such a good host!
I can warmly recommend this property.
Perfect spot for a couple with orwithout young kids. It's a two bedroom house. One BR is suitable for a couple, the other is best suited to young kiddos.
It's a short walk to the ocean, perhaps 6 city blocks. It is residential in nature. Most of the peeps are full time residents but a sizable minority of the area homes are rented to visitors. The Casadora neighborhood is comfortable, quiet and safe.
The unit is well equipped. You will need the beach chairs and cooler! I cook at 'home' about half the time. (Side note: both Lings and Super Food have superb fresh local fish at absurdly low prices.) Grill some ribs, steaks or burgers on the Weber.
Probably the nicest thing about the unit is the compound which surrounds it. It's your own private park.
Wonderful relaxing vacation
Jeanine has done a great job making sure all the comforts of home are provided at Casa Dora. She provides dishes, pots and pans if you want to cook. The home is clean and has a great "beach" feel. Air conditioners worked great, only used them in the bedrooms. The front rooms had a lovely breeze coming in the windows. Great patio with comfy furniture, wonderful hammock and small pool for dipping in to cool off. There is a grill too.
This property is a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. We loved the Palm Beach area, so many bars and restaurants to choose from. The bus stop is right at the Marriott and cabs are easy to get as well. We would spend the day at the beach and walk our way into town for dinner.
There is a helpful blue binder in the home, be sure to read through it. Great little grocery store in walking distance if you only need a few things. We grabbed fruit and snacks and lunch items. Jeanine also has pamphlets for various tourist attractions on the book shelf along with the library of books.
I would highly recommend this property. I stayed with my sister but you could easily have 2 couples or a family of 4-5 be comfortable. I would definitely come back to Casa Dora
Dear Kathy, thank you so much for your kind words! Hope to welcome you again in the future.
