Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Safir 9 was a great place to stay in Aruba. It was close to beaches and was in a great neighborhood. It had everything you needed for the stay. Jose was great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. I suggest that you get a rental car if you choose this place. Because while it's close to a beach you will need to get to other places by car like the grocery store or restaurants. I was a little worried about having a set amount of electricity and water to use but we did not come close to using the maximum amount of either set by owners. The only little thing that can bother you there is barking dogs at night. Aruba has dogs everywhere and people let them run free and if you are a lite sleeper you may be woke up at night with them barking. This place is a really great place to stay, I can't recommend it more highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Daniel for your great review! Yes, we advise all our guests to rent cars. Even if you are next to the beach how you will get your groceries? Also Aruba has more to offer then the beach we think! We hope to see you again! The Marin Family

Exactly as advertised . Perfect apt for two adults, safe area and quiet. Need a car rental but we wo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Aruba and the apt was perfect for us, it met all our needs. The owners/management are very accommodating and provided 2 beach chairs which were used everyday. The apt is perfect for two adults, but a car rental will be needed. The area is safe, quiet and 5 mins to beautiful Aruban beaches. We would use this apt again if it's just my wife and I. There is no BBQ grill, which I was disappointed with , but that was the only thing missing. Minor I know, but with the availability of all the fresh fish I would have loved to do some grilling

No Surprises! Great for Two!

  • 5 of 5

Safir 9 Apt. is attached to a home in a quiet, upscale neighbourhood near Tierra del Sol Golf Course - completely private. Outside picture does not do it justice! We frequently enjoyed early breakfasts outside with the trade winds keeping the air cool and the insects at bay! Every amenity is provided including "starter" coffee, sugar, spices, etc. Appliances are immaculate - like new. Water and Electrical quotas are more than adequate. Parking for full-size car in gated yard ( we used Wheels To Go car rental - excellent service ). Desalinated water plant in Aruba provides delicious, safe water from the tap! A variety of beaches are close-by, just park your car under a tree and GO! Most tourists congregate around the hotel districts or in Oranjestad - which leaves the other beaches lightly populated. We felt safe exploring the island even when we got lost searching out a couple of restaurants! We stayed on the paved roads as our rental car was not designed for the desert trails. Signage/map detail is a problem for finding your way but it's a small island so you get there eventually! The information binder provided by Jose & Rixt is invaluable - we referred to it many times. Moon Aruba ( Amazon ) is a recently re-published guide book which we found very helpful as well. Our favourite restaurants are Zeerovers - for fresh fish on the dock - clean, great food, and Mulligans - varied menu. Venues are both beautiful. Managers Jose & Rixt are caring, efficient and knowledgeable. They responded immediately and professionally to our emails or phone calls both before and during our vacation. We are looking forward to accessing their new website so that we have easy access to all of the properties that they manage to share with our friends and get our next visit to Aruba organized. It is, as the Arubans claim, ONE HAPPY ISLAND!

Great place to stay, attentive hosts

  • 5 of 5

Very clean property in a quiet neighborhood. Well-equipped kitchen, appliances are new and all function well. Very comfortable bed with quality mattress, pillows and linens (we've stayed in other places and it's not always the case, so I thought it's important to mention.) Bathroom/shower are also new and extremely clean. Hosts are really great, very attentive to our needs -- we had one request (internet connection went out and I had to check email) and Jose was in the apartment within 10 minutes after the phone call. Highly recommend.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time at this lovely apartment. It is very modern and comfortable. The location was also good, not far from the beach and hotel area. There were also nice extras such as the washing machine.

The Marin Family were very nice hosts.

I would definitely come back here anytime!

Car: recommended

Our apartment is located in the North of Aruba, called the Safir-Malmok area. It is a 8 minutes drive to one of the biggest supermarket on Aruba (Superfood). We are 2 car minute away from the Arashi Beach. Great to snorkel here! The area is an up scaled area with villas around you. You are within 5 car minutes at the cinema, shops and more than 60 restaurants, including Starbucks and local shops (and Palm Beach Shopping Mall). You must see the beaches around the corner. They are quiet and great to go swimming and snorkling!

There is public transportation on the main road. There is a bus stop every hour during the week. We have the bus schedule for your convenience in the apartment. We do recommend you to rent a car on Aruba. Most of the times it is too hot to walk. Best way also to see and explore the island!
