The Only Place to Stay in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with Casa Dora. It truly felt like our home away from home. We traveled back to Aruba 18 years after my wife and I honeymooned there with our two daughters, and now they have fallen in love with it just like we did. Casa Dora was a huge reason why. Coming back to "home" each day and cooling off in the pool with a cold drink was absolutely the best. The location is close to everything, and the neighborhood was super quiet. We did an initial shopping trip to Super Foods and picked up some breakfast/lunch/snack items and literally only ate one meal a day out and saved a ton of money that way! Jeanine has the place super clean and well stocked with anything you would need. We can't say enough good things about it. The only problem ...... we wish it were ours! Thanks Jeanine for everything! See you again soon! The Hoffman's

Bright, cheerful, clean, relaxing and well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I met in Aruba for a week for a much needed vacation. Casa Dora was so perfect for just staying in and relaxing, but it was also a great location as a home base for getting out. The resort area is in walking distance, which is an easy location for eating dinner and watching sunsets on the beach which we did every night. Arashi Beach is a few minutes drive and so worth a little drive each day rather than walking to the beach by the resorts as it's less crowded and the water is varied in areas and deeper. Jeanine kindly has equipment available for hanging out at the beach and my friend really loved using the snorkeling equipment.

A car rental is really helpful for getting to the grocery store (Superfoods down the street has everything you could want and we bought breakfasts to make at home as well as meats, cheeses and breads for easy day trip food), and to get around the island. We spent an afternoon in the town of San Nicolaas on the other side of the island as well as time downtown and at the national park. Jeanine has helpfully annotated a guide book of the island and it was really great having WiFi in the house.

Save yourself some money on bottled water and just use the pitcher in the fridge to keep cold water on hand. The water is great once cold!

The house itself is very spacious and bright and so clean. We felt very welcomed and cozy and relaxed and really couldn't have chosen a better home. Thanks, Jeanine!

Hypnotic!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home! We loved the charming house and it was perfect for a family of four. Coming back each night from a day of adventure was a treat. The house was clean, well equipped, and beds super comfy. The location is ideal. We bought food from Fresh Market and made picnic lunches everyday. Cooked dinner at home once.Highly recommend Casa Dora for your stay in Aruba.

Third stay the best so far

  • 5 of 5

Jeanine keeps a tidy,convenient place. Away from the crowd in a quiet residential neighborhood. It has everything you need. For our 2 week stay we brought only carry-on bags.

Only catch is I got first dibs.
