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.

I really love this house

  • 5 of 5

For the 2nd year in a row, 6 family & friends shared this house and had an amazing 7 day vacation. The house is super clean and that is what I love about it the most. It does NOT have a lot of "stuff" sitting around collecting dust. Paul and Sue are amazing to work with and very responsive in there replies back and fourth. The local property manager is sooooo sweet, she seemed surprised when I gave her a big hug during my checkout. The part I love the most about this house is the kitchen because I cook a lot. It has really great cookware and utensils, the white floors throughout (I would love love love to have an option for a house keeper to come and mop the floors 1/2 thru my rental), the pool area and the sitting area just outside the kitchen. I just really enjoy this house and would definitely rent it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this great review, and we were really happy to host your second vacation at Villa Chuchubi. With regard to floor mopping, we can always arrange additional interim cleaning if required, and are also happy for you to do this directly with our Property Managers after your arrival, as you will have a better idea of your plans at that point. You can also pay them directly which is a great way to get rid of those florins! We hope to welcome you back for vacation number 3!

The property is gorgeous , pool & gardens amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The property manager greets you warmly and does a thorough walk thru. The interior rooms are nicely decorated, and well appointed. Villa Chuchubi, after 2 wks. did feel like home.

Sue makes the entire process seamless, responses to any and all inquiries are quick, detailed, and courteous.

We did not want to come home!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Chuchubi is truly the most beautiful villa on earth! The property is literally breathtaking, much larger and more open plan than the photos online and the garden and pool area is just gorgeous.

The villa is so central to most of Aruba's best spots including Malmok beach (amazing snorkelling), Palm beach and the high rise area for going out in the evening. Supermarkets are also very close by too, only 2 mins to the local convenience store and 10/12 mins to Superfood the large supermarket.

The most memorable times of our vacation were spent outside on the lovely comfy sofa's on the side patio having BBQ's and enjoying the local rum! The garden is a sun trap from about 8am to 7pm and it is the most relaxing environment.

The house itself contains everything you could possibly need, and I got lots of use out of the pancake griddle at breakfast time!

We have honestly had the perfect vacation and will remember it forever! Can't wait to come back next year, thank you Sue & Paul for a beautiful home away from home.

Heaven in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

This house was a WOW the minute we walked in the door!! The house just sparkles it is so neat, clean and well decorated. So comfy in all areas of the home and the pool was amazing. The yard was spacious and nicely landscaped with a nice neighborhood that it is situated in. The management was on top of any questions we had and we are definitely going back. If you are planning your next visit before you even leave you know its A+.

Truly Wonderful Vacation at Villa Chuchubi

  • 5 of 5

Our third vacation holiday in Aruba in a row and by far the best. We really felt like Villa Chuchubi was an extension of our home. Sue and Paul take great care and pride in their Villa. From the first moment we stepped into the home, everything was perfect. Very welcoming, spacious and tidy. Sue and Paul really thought out all the various details and things you need for a stay. The outside is just as lovely, the back yard is large, private and plenty of sun all day. The BBQ and outside dining area is also wonderful, complete with outdoor furniture in a covered area that is very comfy and elegant, perfect to enjoy a glass of wine after dinner. Sue and Paul also provided several beach chairs and a beach umbrella. Also there was some beach toys for our little girl so she was entertained as we relaxed at the local beach. We recommend Arashi Beach, if you want to get away from the crowds at Eagle and Palm Beach. We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Chuchubi, this was our first house rental and we will definitely rent again with Sue and Paul at this Villa. As for other things to do; we explored the "other side" of the island on this visit and really highly recommend this adventure. It is so amazing, from the Zen Rocks at the old gold mine, to the natural bridge (now collapsed, but still breath taking). Also, Baby Beach is quite a drive, but worth spending the day. Our family loves Aruba, we are already planning our next trip. Thank you Sue and Paul for welcoming us into your home. We wish your family well and hope to stay again at Villa Chuchubi.

Cheers,

Jen, Bill and Claudia Dickenson, Brantford, Ontario, Canada

Aruba is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and stunning scenery. Just take a drive, and explore for yourself.
