Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Casa Chibichibi. We were two families ( 4 adults and 2 teenagers) and the size of the house and the property was very good for us. The pool ( an absolute must for this climate ) is big and well maintained; twice a week a crew would come in for maintenance. Each room has air conditioning and direct access to one of the two bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped with good appliances and has all the cutlery and tools needed to prepare a meal. In the surrounding area there are a few Chinese supermarkets and even we bought fresh fish from a fisherman that sells his catch every day ( at the roundabout with the blue house in the middle ). The barbecue on the property was very handy to prepare a great fish dish. The property manager ( Petra) was very helpful with information prior to our arrival and made sure that the house clean and ready for us. She also recommended us some dining places for every type of budget. We tried some of them , and Zeerover is a must try restaurant!

In Aruba the electricity and water is expensive, so we had to be a bit more conscious with our usage , and in the end, for the six of us, we pay an extra 50 US$ for the 2 weeks we stayed . Our vacation in Aruba was amazing, and we highly recommend Casa Chibichibi!

Great vacation highlighted by a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ?

Our vacation took place over New Year 2016. The listing description was accurate and the location close to airport. The property was clean and well-maintained. It was centrally located on the island and a rental car was definitely needed. However, with all the running around we did, our cost of gas was minimal because of the location and relative small size of the island.

We received exceptional service from the property managers, Petra and Dander, who made it a point to make sure we were comfortable. They went out of there way to help us and was waiting for us at the house for a late evening arrival after we had to take a taxi to the location. The rental car company (Budget) was out of vehicles by the time we arrived at 8:30pm (even though we had a reservation). Our hosts helped arrange with Budget that a car would definitely be available the next day and even brought us there to pick it up. We were extremely pleased and grateful for the customer services provided.

We traveled as a group of 4 adults and was extremely comfortable with the layout of the home which provided ample public and private space. The highlights of the property was the in ground pool which was clean and well-maintained. The outdoor grill which had plenty of propane for our use and outdoor eating and lounging areas. The beds were comfortable and the linens and towels clean with plenty of additional ones. There was a working washer/dryer and all the appliances in the kitchen worked well with plenty of cooking and eating utensils.

We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a more unconventional island vacation away from the tourist spots. However, we had the opportunity to hang out at all the tourist spots. Parking was not an issue as there are plenty of lots which offer free to minimal parking costs.

We would also enjoy a return stay at Casa Chibi Chibi!
