About Brett Clifford

Brett Clifford purchased this villa in 2014

Why Brett Clifford chose Aruba

This property was only about 6 years old and was a diamond in the rough. The large vaulted great room had so much potential. The backyard was was a blank canvas for us to design as we wished. The location is a quiet neighborhood centrally located between the best beaches in Aruba.

What makes this villa unique

The large open kitchen, dining and living room open directly to the new backyard tropical getaway. The Aruban Jewel has unmatched entertaining space.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived it felt like home. Lavonne was great, showed us around and how to use Alexa!! The pool and hot tub was great to relax in after a day at the beach. It was close to the beach, but renting a car helped a lot. I would love to stay here again!

We loved everything about this villa from the moment we walked in. We were in Aruba for my daughter's wedding, so the whole family including grandchildren were there. We used the 4 bedrooms in the main house plus the guest house. Every bedroom had its own bathroom. The large master suite had a walk-in closet in addition to the private bathroom. The open-concept living room/dining room/kitchen was very spacious and beautifully decorated. The dining room table was huge! Perfect for a large family. The kitchen included all the modern amenities and was well-stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans, etc. In fact, while we were there we met the owners because they installed a brand new dishwasher. Brett and Lavonne were very nice and extremely gracious. Everyone also loved the pool which included a pool bar and whirlpool tub as well. There is also a large table and gas grill outside in the pool area. We rented a minivan so we could easily get anywhere we wanted to -- the hotels, the grocery store, the shops and restaurants, the beaches and the lighthouse were all nearby. We had an excellent vacation. We would definitely go back there again and stay at the "Aruban Jewel"!!!

A beautiful and relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Aruba and as we heard people say.... we WILL be back! There are many ways to enjoy the island and we truly enjoyed and prefer renting a house over the hotel or condo option. It's wonderful to wake up in the morning with your coffee and sit in the pool and read under the palapa. Quiet and tranquil. We rented a car for 7 of us which we recommend to go to the store, various restaurants and explore the island. The snorkel equipment, chairs and cooler were so appreciated! Did a catamaran gig and the UTV trip was the favorite for all!! Depalm does a very nice job with their tours. Kitchen has nice assortment of cooking utensils and appliances. The attached apartment was perfect addition to the space. The decor was very island like. Had Alexa in every room to turn on and off the AC, music or general discussion (LOL). Short walk to Ting Wei for whatever you might need. Recommend Superfoods for groceries. Bring your own bags which are provided in the house.

Pictures truly don't do it justice. Quick ride to the palm plaza area. Highly recommend Pinchos and Faro Blanco by the lighthouse. Delicious food and wonderful service---keep in mind they are expensive but worth it. Brett and LaVonne are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this property and island!!!

The house with everything

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. Plenty of rooms, dishes for cooking, towels for the beach and even snorkel gear.

It is about a 10 minute walk to the beach. So, a car or a side by side would be nice, but not necessary. The owners we're great and very helpful too.

Increíble casa en Aruba!!!

  • 5 of 5

Gracias Brett y Lavonne, disfrutamos muchísimo de la casa, verdaderamente una joya como lo anuncian. Hemos disfrutado horrores de la piscina y jacuzzi por las tardes después de estar todo en día en Arashi ( para mi, la mejor playa de Aruba).

Nos encanto conocerlos y esperamos volver a su casa.

Muchas gracias por hacer de nuestra estadía una increíble.

A Real Jewel

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 adults, ages 40-70 visited Aruba for the first time and stayed at the Aruban Jewel. The pictures are accurate, but once you arrive it's even better!! The location is great...we were a 10-15 minute drive to everywhere we wanted to visit - beaches, shopping, casinos, restaurants Super Foods, etc. All the amenities of home are included: washer/dryer, cooking utensils, grill, etc. There's no need for the AC in the common area, just open the windows and doors, use the screens on the doors and enjoy the constant breeze. When we weren't exploring Aruba, ATV and horseback riding, enjoying Palm beach, shopping or eating out we were chilling at the pool.

Brett was so kind to help with luggage (small rental cars) and directions to the airport. LaVonne was so helpful providing information on decent/inexpensive lodging when a family member had to extend his stay in Aruba due to a medical emergency. Maria was very patient as she waited for us at the house for an hour after our expected arrival time.

We will return to Aruba and hope to stay at the Aruban Jewel again.

GREAT house and GREAT hosts!!!

Unfortunately, we're back to reality in Cincinnati Ohio!
