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 :)

It is the best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

Sue makes everything so easy at this wonderful house. We come in and shed our shoes and our cold climate and our cares. The owners have thought of every need. They have wonderful people to work with and they maintain the house and grounds beautifully. Julie is a great manager. The pool people came twice in one week. The yard is maintained weekly. The whole place is immaculate.

We have been here twice and I foresee further visits.

Great Destination for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a Great Christmas break we had at Villa Chuchubi. This home is beautiful! The three bedrooms are large with plenty of room to spread out and get comfortable. The Living Room is big with plenty of seating to sit with family and relax after a day at the beach. The eat in kitchen seats a large group comfortably. There is everything you would need in the kitchen to cook meals your entire stay. The outdoor sitting area off the kitchen was our favorite spot. Our nights always end up there relaxing with a glass wine our playing games as a family. It was also my favorite spot in the morning before the rest of the family was up to sit and have my first cup of coffee. The large private backyard has a beautiful pool which is perfect for ending the day in. Plenty of deck furniture to lounge in the sun and plenty of areas that are covered to hide from it. The house is close to major beaches, restaurants and activities. The neighborhood is tucked away and quiet. The home comes with all types of extras such as pool and beach toys, chairs for the beach and coolers. Probably one of the best equipped and thought out homes that we have rented in the Caribbean. This home is truly a hidden gem!
