Guestbook comments from the owner

Location, location, location! Aruba Rhythm has all the conveniences of a beautifully-equipped home with so many extras! Katie and her husband thought of everything a vacationing family would need to have and enjoy the extra amenities. We loved our adventures to the National park, natural pool, donkey preserve, Aruba aloe tour, butterfly museum and beautiful local eagle beach. Any question you may have was patiently answered and the safety of the home allowed for even more relaxation. We enjoyed watching the koi fish and monarch butterfly garden while sipping our morning coffee and listening to the birds. Anticipating sitting on the lanai every morning, and sitting by the pool made a long day of adventure well worth coming home to. Loved our time here. You will too.

A+ home in Aruba - to complete a slice of heaven in paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you want a centrally located home with everything you'd need to make packing lighter and your stay in this piece of heaven known as Aruba great, then reserve time at this home. Katie, the owner, was extremely responsive from the very beginning of our search and answered all our questions. Her team which we look at as our extended family in Aruba was very helpful with dining ideas and anything that came up. My son Chef Jarrett, who cooks for us on our family vacations found the kitchen perfect for his needs and we loved his creations. Dining out a couple of nights was great too. Susan and I plus our 5 adult children were extremely happy with our living quarters and the game room made for lots of fun. Outside living space was perfect to cool down in the pool or sit in the shade of the patio. We love Garrett's natural landscape and I made myself responsible for feeding the Koi fish

Thanks again for making your home our home for the 8 days in Aruba. AYO

This property is beautiful and close to everything that you need.The Monarch butterfly farm that is at the house site was a bonus. This property has a lot of room for a large family.

This house is the full package, great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

My group of friends stayed at Aruba Rhythm in mid-March. We were 5 Aruba first timers and this home was perfect for us! The home is exactly as pictured: clean, spacious and comfy. The kitchen is fully equipped to do some basic breakfasts, frozen drinks and light grilling. The house came with plenty of towels (bath and beach) and all the equipment to have a perfect day out at the beach. The pleasant bonus surprises for us were the fresh lime and pomegranate trees in the yard (the limes were ripe enough to use in our water and cocktails), and the beautiful butterfly nursery that they keep in the backyard alongside the Koi fish. During our stay a number of the butterflies emerged from their cocoons and it was nice getting up early to witness their progress. All the beds were comfortable and there were TVs with cable in each room. The super store is a short 3-5 minute walk from the property which was excellent, and they carried an enormous selection of groceries, drug store items, cafe and spirits and wines. Cabs for 5 to downtown or the high rises hovered between $10-13 dollars, which we found affordable so we didn't rent a car. A lot of the other activity services (tours, ATVs, etc) offer pick-up also. All in all the house is wonderful, we felt safe and secure the entire time, and we liked being away from all the tourist hubbub. It was nice to travel to the touristy places when we wanted to be with other people and retreat to a home that was quiet.

With all that said about the house, I love it, recommend it, and would stay again.

My one thing that I am including because when I'm searching for a home I appreciate a thorough and honest review is the trek to the beach. There is some significant construction going on between the house and the beach. It isn't noisy, so you don't hear anything from the house but it is an obstacle to getting to the beach. The walk forces you to cross a two-lane street with cars moving at a pretty quick clip. Some drivers slow down, others do not, and the path to the beach isn't direct. Once you cross over, its easy, but it will take you about 10 mins overall and there is a weird part where you walk on a pathway with thorn bushes but they are far enough away not to be dangerous. Just keep moving towards the Tropicana & you should be fine. Pro-Tip: Bring chairs from the house and the palapas on the beach are abundant and free just move the other chairs out of the way. Chair rentals on the beach are $15

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and candid remarks. So happy you all enjoyed your first trip to the Island. Most visitors want to return, and it sounds like you are now also part of that group. When we left the island on March 1 there was no construction at the crossing area, so I appreciate this update. I’m sure that soon it will be more convenient to all - motorists as well as pedestrians. I will make sure to mention to upcoming guests, and your review helps. Take care, Katie

Great house, very quiet and nice features.

  • 5 of 5

House was really nice! Lots of entertainment within. Extremely quiet even though you are so close to traffic and the largest supermarket on island. We were able to walk there (only 1/4 of a block) Beds extremely comfy. Nice large bathrooms. Pool was cleaned everyday. Grill tank also full. Only thing we missed was a larger coffee pot. Keurig cup maker was really appreciated and the refills of flavored coffees. Between that and the small 2 cup coffee pot we managed. Everyone we came in contact w/ this property was very nice and helpful. Fantastic people.

Map

Nearest Airport

Reina Beatrix, Oranjestad
Nearest Beach
0.4 Miles
Eagle Beach - 8 minute walking distance
Car: not necessary

You've made a good choice for your vacation with Aruba, where many official efforts are being made to make the tourist experience more enjoyable each time you return - and you will return. The island is small at about 6 miles by 20 miles, so to see as much as possible, a rental car may be desired.

But if you are primarily interested in checking out or returning to Aruba's beautiful beaches, Aruba Rhythm is well situated for walking to world-famous Eagle Beach as well as picking up one of the buses traveling along Eagle Beach on a regular basis to get you to Palm Beach or in the other direction toward the capital in Oranjestad. Shopping, dining and attractions galore are accessible from the bus line, which we have found very convenient and well run.

With 2000 sf interior space as well as a large covered porch, when you return from your adventures, there's plenty to do on site or just relax in the hammock while the burgers are on the grill.

With three bedrooms, there is private sleeping for up to six people. For added guests or children, there is a fold-out sofa for two in the open billiard room. Each bedroom has cable TV, AC and a ceiling fan for comfort. All bedding and towels (both bath and beach) are provided.

The kitchen is complete with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans to prepare meals when you choose to eat in. There are also several small appliances for your convenience.

Our concerns are for our guests' comfort, cleanliness and security; and we have tried to reflect this in the selection and maintenance of the accommodations at Aruba Rhythm. It is also why we do not allow smoking or pets.

We look forward to welcoming you as guests at Aruba Rhythm.
