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

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

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.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Villa Chuchubi and couldn't have been more pleased. Because owner Sue was so responsive and informative beforehand we were confident we were making a good choice, but our stay was even better than anticipated. The home is just as nice as portrayed in the photos, impeccably maintained, and filled with every amenity we could have wanted. How nice to jump in that lovely pool (serviced twice per week) every day, and beach chairs and a cooler are helpfully provided too for trips to nearby beaches. We also appreciated the home's security system (Aruba is very safe, but it's still nice to have security), the pleasant and very responsive on-island representative Julie, and -- unlike some other advertised rentals on Aruba -- a more than fair electricity allowance that allowed us to keep the home at a comfortable air-conditioned level when needed without incurring extra after-the-fact cost. We would not hesitate to recommend Villa Chuchubi for travelers who are looking to rent a house on Aruba. Thanks, Sue, for a terrific stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much and we are really happy that you had a great vacation with us. Your comments regarding the utility allowance will also be very helpful for other travelers reading your review. We do say in our listing that the allowance is sufficient with responsible use of the AC, but it will give other potential renters confidence that our guests also found it to be ample too. We hope to see you again for your next Aruba vacation :)

Great stay at this sweet home!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Paul and Sue,

We had a wonderful time at your home- the location is great and so easy to get to food shopping, entertainment and our new favorite Arashi Beach. Everything is well cared for an well-maintained, and the house was immaculate when we first walked in, which really just set the stage up for the rest of our stay. Thank you again and we look forward to another stay in the future.

Kind regards,

The Conlons

Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

We can not say enough wonderful things about our trip to Aruba. We had 9 magnificent days on the island and Villa Chuchubi was the icing on the cake. Sue was great to work with and made booking property smooth and uncomplicated. She also sent email prior to our arrival with helpful information and places and things to do and see. The property manager was simply wonderful. She went over everything thoroughly and was very pleasant and friendly. And the house was amazing. Our family of four loved it. Our two teen aged daughters loved the pool and the fact that they each had their own bedroom with their own tv, which made everyone a little happier! Nice and roomy floor plan so we did not feel like we were on top of each other, I can't imagine being in a hotel room for 9 days! We were out during most of the day hours, but mornings and evenings were very relaxing and laid back at the house. We grilled out 3 nights, and made a nice breakfast each morning. It is fully equipped with everything you need. Grocery stores within close proximity. Also provided was a cooler and chairs for the beach. Very easy to get to any of the beaches. We had a rental car so we did a lot of exploring. The house has a gated front and also a security system. This was our first trip to Aruba, but definitely not our last. Would highly recommend Villa Chuchubi!
