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 Malmok

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

Aruba perfection! Stunning home, convenient to EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing stay at Villa Chuchubi. It was absolutely perfect. The home is immaculately kept with beautiful grounds, a fantastic pool, and 3 large bedrooms to give the kids and the adults room to relax.

From before the moment we arrived, everything was flawless. The information provided gave us simple directions to the home and information on grocery stores and all the basics. We were met at the house by the WONDERFUL property manager who answered all of our questions. The home is immaculately kept with the option for A/C or comfortable trade winds. The photos do not do the home justice. Everything is top shelf! Because we stayed for 10 days, we even had a full house cleaning mid-stay. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. (For prospective renters with teens, there is better Wi-Fi than in our home, Netflix on each TV, several areas to relax in and out of the sun, a Bluetooth speaker for poolside--everything you could want.)

The home is a 5 minute drive from Arashi Beach but only a 3 minute drive to Boca Catalina and a 7 minute drive from Eagle Beach, so we rotated the beaches each day. If you've not been to Aruba before, you should know that you just pack a cooler and chairs (both provided!) and drive right up to the edge of your chosen beach. The location was really fantastic. We also spent a day at Fisherman's Hut, so that the kids could do parasailing, and a day in the Arakok National Park, so that we could enjoy some hiking/nature. I highly recommend renting good snorkeling equipment--we snorkeled at Boca Catalina, Baby Beach, and Arashi. There is so much to do! But coming home to this wonderful home each evening was always a delight.

There is not a single suggestion that I could make to improve upon this home rental. It was honestly flawless. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to stay here and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness! Thank you! Your review described exactly what we dreamed of achieving when we bought the house in 2014 to create an environment our guests could relax in and enjoy. The information about location, beaches and facilities will also be really helpful for prospective renters, as it is always difficult to cover everything in the listing, and there is no better opinion than one from guests who have rented the home themselves. I can't tell you how happy we are to hear you had a great time and hope to welcome you and your family back again soon :)

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just stop looking, this is the place! From the seamless communication with the owners to reserve the house to the house itself which has absolutely everything you need to the easy check out, it was all perfect. It is only a few minutes drive to gorgeous beaches with ample parking. It is also very close to shopping and restaurants even though we ate at the house all the time (everything you need to cook is there). The pool was definitely a big plus to cool off from the Aruban heat. Don't hesitate, just book, you won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness...thank you! We are really happy you had such a good vacation at Villa Chuchubi, and it was really nice to hear that you had all you needed and were able to cook every day - something that I always look for in a rental, as some days you just don’t feel like eating out! We hope you will come back and visit us again soon :)

Aruba at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for letting us stay at your beautiful villa.

We have rented 6 villas in the last 10 years in Aruba and St Maartin and your villa is the best of them all. Very nice house, furniture, appliances, pool, sun chairs, beach chairs and beach coolers. Every day was an adventure whether we stayed home or hit the beach. 10 out of 10.

Cheers, Barry & Tammy Bulmer

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations we ever had. The house was great. It had all we needed for this trip. Plenty of room and we just loved the pool and the privacy it provides. The location was perfect for us. Close to the beach, grocery shopping and all activities. There is also a beach nearby with a reef and the snorkeling is excellent. The tap water in Aruba is better than bottled water. We could see the fireworks from the house when they were celebrating at the beach. Aruba is such a friendly happy island. We intend on visiting again someday. Thanks for providing such wonderful memories our family will remember forever.
