About Paul and Sue Gibbs

We are just an ordinary English couple, who visited Aruba with our family for a two week vacation in 2013, and were captivated by the beauty and warmth of the island and its inhabitants.

Having fallen in love with all that Aruba has to offer, we decided to buy a property to enjoy ourselves, and to rent to others who can also create happy memories of this exceptional island.

Paul and Sue Gibbs purchased this house in 2014

Why Paul and Sue Gibbs chose Aruba

We fell in love with Aruba during our 2013 vacation, and felt the same way about Villa Chuchubi from the moment we walked through the front door. The open plan kitchen/living/dining area is HUGE, with a large and shady terrace for eating and lounging, just the other side of the patio door from the kitchen.

The pool invites you to jump in, as soon as you step out into the lush, tropical gardens, and the pretty thatched palapa offers welcome shade from the heat of the Aruban sun.

What makes this house unique

* Stunning gardens and pool

* HUGE open plan kitchen/living/dining area

* Large master suite with walk-through closet and en-suite bathroom

* Quiet neighborhood close to Palm Beach

* Perfect base for a vacation in the paradise island of Aruba

great house great location

  • 5 of 5

It's a great house in a great location. Easy drive to hotels and restaurants in Palm Beach. short drive to our favorite Arashi Beach. Immaculately clean and obsessive attention to detail. Even light switches labelled. Towels and furniture top quality, they all seem new. Very nice touches like a bluetooth speaker to play music from your phone. High speed web, and good tv in the living room. Never tried the bedroom tv's, but they are there. Superb supplies like a days coffee, salt, pepper, aluminum foil, tape, etc. 10/10 will be there again.

What an amazing place! Everything about it was awesome! The inside of the villa is spacious, spotlessly clean and so comfortable.

The pictures just don't do it justice, so many areas to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings The location is perfect, close to beaches, supermarket and all the other great places nearby.

Paul and Sue were wonderful to deal with and the local property managers were very friendly and easy to deal with.

I can't recommend Villa Chuchubi highly enough!

Paradise in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience with HomeAway, and first visit to Aruba could not have gone any better. Sue was a delight to work with; prompt, professional, and informative. Villa Chuchubi is a beautiful property; inside the house is clean, modern, and spacious, stocked with everything you may want or need. Outside the pool area is amazing; a great place to unwind after a day on the beach, or a place to enjoy a bottle of wine under the moonlit sky. We enjoyed the excitement of Palm Beach; with all the beach bars and restaurants (you have to try Eduardo's Beach Shack for your morning smoothie). Eagle Beach is beautiful and relaxing; with pristine water and beach sand; and Arashi beach (only a 3 or 4 minute drive) is a beautiful place to enjoy those amazing sunsets. We hiked to the Natural Pool, (so worth it), and took the short drive to the California Lighthouse for some fabulous views. Our favorite restaurants were the"Flying Fishbone"; where you can eat great seafood near or in some cases in the water; "Yemanja" for grilled steaks, chops, and seafood; and the "Faro Blanco Restaurant" where at sunset you almost feel like your dining in Italy while enjoying some great Italian food.

My wife, adult children, and I are already planning another trip to Aruba where we most certainly will stay at Villa Chuchubi. Thank you again Sue for helping our family have a truly memorable vacation.

We are obviously very grateful for your kind comments, but the other recommendations for restaurants and day trips will also be really useful for other travelers. We were very happy to host your family vacation and look forward to the next time.

A week is never enough!

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Sue have been great to work with. We had a wonderful stay in Aruba! The management staff was very welcoming and informative upon our arrival. The home was everything and more than we expected. The pictures don't do the home justice. The home location was perfect for all of the adventures we went on each day. It was so nice to have beach towels and chairs available so we did not have to rent them. We spent several relaxing evenings cooking on the grill and hanging by the pool. We highly recommend this beautiful home for anyone coming to Aruba!

Perfect house for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

The house is great. Loved the pool- very private. The house comes well equipped with everything from beach towels and chairs to dish soap. We only had to buy food (from the supermarket that was a 2 minute drive away).

Very short drive to Palm Beach , Arashi etc. As an avid runner, I enjoyed the quick jog to the beach and then ran up and down the sand.

We highly recommend this house. Very comfortable, clean, etc.
