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.

Wonderful home in Noord; perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa Chuchubi from March 11-18, 2017. The home was wonderful inside and out. We have rented many vacation homes and can truly say that this truly a perfect vacation home for a family or for 2-3 couples. The home is accurately depicted on the VRBO website; the owners, Sue and Paul, were very prompt in answering any questions that I had prior to our arrival. The home is beautiful inside and out; the floor plan is open and spacious. The furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is very well appointed for cooking; we loved having the outdoor grill. The landscaping is lovely; we spent a lot of time in the outdoor living space with truly expands the size of the home. We were there with my mother (84 years of age) and our adult daughter. There was plenty of space for all of us. The home is conveniently located within a 5 minute drive of the beach, 10 minutes from a modern, large supermarket, and close to areas for diving/water sports. I would recommend renting a car if staying here. The neighborhood felt very safe and the home has a security system. We love renting homes rather than staying in a hotel and would highly recommend Villa Chuchubi to others.

Perfect in every way,

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect in every way. It was lovely, well located, well maintained and the owners and property managers were professional and friendly. Highly, highly recommended. The neighbourhood has a healthy mix of locals and visitors so we never felt in a tourism bubble.

The kitchen and barbecue were well equipped so we had excellent meals at the Villa.

We decided to make an unusual decision, we rented bikes and took taxis. We would have rented a car but never felt any need to. This worked very well at this house, a group of 4 adults in their 40s and 50s and a small child. FX sports ( is around the corner and they provided excellent bikes and service. Boca Catalina and Arashi beaches are about a 15 minute cycle away. A good grocery store and JJs snack bar were about 10 minutes away. Taxis were always very affordable.

We visited Aruba for a day a few years ago on a cruise and felt it would be a good place to return for a week. We brought friends with us and Villa Chuchubi, the beautiful island and kind people resulted in an amazing vacation.

Owner's Response: Oh Wow! We are so happy to hear that your vacation was everything you wanted it to be. It was also really interesting to know that you didn't rent a car, but used taxis and hired bikes. Really useful information for other guests. We hope to welcome you back again on your next trip to Aruba :)

A diamond in the rough

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a place. A very well stocked modern home in paradise. We had 4 adults and 2 teens with us and we had plenty of space for all of us. The pool area and outdoor spaces were gorgeous and well manicured. We enjoyed watching the iguanas in the cactus. The home owners answered all of my crazy questions in a timely matter and were very easy to work with. If we would ever go back to Aruba we would stay here again and would recommend to our friends

Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great review and we are glad you all had a good time. Your questions really weren't that crazy....we'd rather that our guests ask questions because that way they know that Villa Chuchubi has been an informed choice, and one that suits their traveling group. We look forward to seeing you all again very soon :)

This home is perfect!!! plenty of open space well maintained pool and in a quiet neighborhood far enough away from all the big hotel noise but close enough to enjoy all the resteraunts shops ect .. Aruba is a small island so you are really always close to everything .. Sue and Paul provided beach chairs and beach towels which were appreciated because we went to the beach everyday.. they made this vacation worry free with the property manager meeting us at the house and explaining everything.. Great Home when I come back to Aruba I will be renting here again if it's available ..

Owner's Response: We were really happy to hear that you all enjoyed your time at Villa Chuchubi. As you say, it is close enough to enjoy the convenience and facilities of Palm Beach, but far enough away that you can also benefit from some peace and quiet. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to the Happy Island :)
