3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Villa - Palm Beach Area - Lush Gardens And Stunning Pool
Paul and Sue Gibbs
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.

Beautiful villa Very spacious well equipped kitchen with everything you would need. Very nice pool area
Would definitely come back here
Thank you so much, and we are happy that you at least managed a shortened version of your vacation before Covid-19 disrupted flights and turned ‘normality’ upside down.
We hope to see you again when we all emerge from the current chaos. The Happy Island and Villa Chuchubi will be waiting for you :)
Overall, Great with a few gliltches
We had a wonderful time at Villa Chuchubi. Location was great, quiet and seemed safe. It is away from the crowds, which we greatly appreciated. I would say if you are staying here, it would be beneficial to have a car, which we did. We enjoyed so many things about the house—large enough for 6 people, great outdoor living space and wonderful pool.
Kitchen adequate if you want to cook.
As for the glitches, there was a bit of an issue at our arrival. The property management person did not show up. We were at the house for about an hour. Fortunately, there was a very nice neighbor that was able to call the company and then he was there within minutes. In fairness, I don't think that is typical of the management company. The regular person was off that day and somehow, it slipped through the cracks about our arrival. Every time while at the house when there was any issue, they were pretty decent. We had an issue with main TV and netflix, but, TV was new and issue eventually got resolved. We had one night that a lizard must have gotten stuck in the drain of the AC in a bedroom. It caused unit to freeze up, but it was resolved the next day.
Sue, the owner seems great and always concerned that everything is great for your visit to her house. Whenever I had any questions or issues, I felt like she was "on it" and very helpful.
We would stay here again without any hesitation. It was very, very nice. The house is just as nice as how it is pictured on VRBO
Thank you so much for your 5* review, and it was good to hear that you had a great vacation.
Occasionally problems do occur, but we do our very best to ensure that these are dealt with quickly and with the minimum of fuss. It was lovely to see that you still felt we deserved a top star rating despite the few issues you experienced.
Our sincere apologies that you were kept waiting for your check in. As you know, your flight was early and our usual Manager was off that day, so a breakdown in communication meant that the early flight arrival was not picked up. We have taken steps to avoid this happening again. I am happy to report that the new 65" 4K TV and Netflix are now best friends, and all is operating beautifully! Thank you for reporting this - even the technician had trouble finding the problem, but thankfully this was sorted out with assistance from the manufacturer
We hope you will visit us again. It would be a pleasure to welcome you all again soon.
Amazing, I will definitely stay at this property again hopefully in a couple years! Owners and property managers were awesome to work with! We felt very safe on the island and everywhere we visited!
Thank you for your great review. Aruba is indeed very safe, as is the neighborhood where Villa Chuchubi is located. Sadly not all of the Caribbean is the same, so this is one is the things that attracted us to the Island. We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation, and we will see you again next time :)
Lovely Vacation Home - So happy we stayed here!
The Villa Chuchubi is its own little island oasis, indoors and out. The home is lovely and so comfortable. The outdoor living areas were our favorite spots to hang out when we were at home, comfortable seating, beautiful landscaping, both shady and sunny spots to hang out with the perfect island breeze! The owners, Paul and Sue, and the Management Team are top notch, very organized and helpful, insuring that you have a great vacation experience.
Wow! Thank you so much for such kind words.
We love the outdoor areas too. The two verandas ensure there is somewhere for everyone....quiet places if you want to read or collect your thoughts, and more sociable areas for chatting and sharing stories, all with the benefit of the trade winds to keep you cool.
We are really happy you received good service and enjoyed your vacation, and hope you will look us up again when you are back in Aruba :)
The house was beautiful and well stocked with the Essentials to get you started. Pool area and outside dining and seating area were perfect every morning and afternoon before and after the beach. We had some issues with the main bathroom regarding an odor coming from the toilet. The house supervisor was quick to respond, but the issue couldn’t be resolved during our stay. Not to Their fault, we choose to deal with it so we didn’t disrupt our stay. I would venture to say that the owner took care of it after we left because she was very responsive to any emails I ever sent her. We had a blast and would definitely encourage anyone to stay at this Beautiful home.
Thank you for taking the time to review your vacation at Villa Chuchubi. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the outside areas....we love our morning coffee on the patio outside the kitchen. The perfect way to start the day.
Thank you also for reporting the issue with the bathrooms. If problems are not notified to our Property Managers then we cannot address these quickly, which then impacts on our next guests. We completely understand why you chose not to disrupt your vacation with our contractor working on it, but the subsequent venting fix seems to have rectified this, so all is good. The joys of extensive remodeling! We hope to see you all again soon.
Villa Chuchubi is located near Palm Beach, in the North of this beautiful island, where you are never far from a photo opportunity or place of interest.

Or take a drive to Arikok National Park, which comprises almost 20% of the island. and offers unique geological, cultural and historical sites including the Natural Pool and Fontein and Quadirikiri Caves.
Aruba is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and stunning scenery. Just take a drive, and explore for yourself.
