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.

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!

Wonderful, a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This perfect for a large family like ours or for 4/5 couples sharing a vacation. We had 3 grandchildren with us---7,4,3 and right after breakfast it was into the pool while the adults leisurely figured out the day. It's wonderful to wake up and casually go into the kitchen, grab a cup of coffee and sit out on the deck around the pool. A resort wouldn't have worked for us, we all agreed. The rooms comfortable, plenty of bathrooms, spacious, clean, more than enough equipment to cook. All of us slept great. Every room had ceiling fans, getting the AC to work could be a bit tricky but we got the hang of it. Beaches and shopping just a few minutes away, highly recommend renting a car or two. This was a long overdue family vacation including a son and daughter getting married two days apart. We loved having this beautiful home as our base and would love to return one day soon.

Absolutely amazing! Very clean and comfortable. Great owners.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are blessed with all women in this family and with having 5 bedrooms and 5 showers was a blessing. The property is not too far from casinos, beach and restaurants. I will definitely use this property again.

Accommodations were perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Aruba with our adult children and their significant others; no small kids. The house was super clean, comfortable, and convenient to shopping, restaurants, and beaches. Everything was in place to include beach towels, snorkel gear, and beach chairs. The kitchen was fully stocked with a big gas stove, plenty of plates and utensils, and lots of fridge space. Was a little bit of a hike, but we walked (for exercise) in the morning from the house to Palm Beach and Pelican Pier. Baby Beach was our fav, but we loved being a 5 - 10 min. drive to Hadicurari, Boca Catalina, and Arashi Beach where we did a lot of snorkeling, cliff jumping, and swimming. Lots of restaurants to choose from and close by!

The Cliffords were very attentive and quick to respond and check in with us when we first arrived. Would return to this property in a heart beat!! Thanks for the memorable experience - :)

Nice home with pool

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Aruban Jewel. It's conveniently located,but think you definitely want a car rental. House was clean and spacious. Pool area was nice. The ice maker was not on,so did buy a lot of ice that week,but I'm sure we would have had to supplement anyway. Aruba is beautiful- would definitely recommend that you take a tour around the island,as the East side is more rugged with very different water and coastline,so was good to see. Don't miss Baby and Arashi beach while you're there!

Wonderful Property - Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

There was five couples in our group, with each couple having their own bedroom and bath. We loved the privacy and the amenities provided at this villa. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the pool area and utilizing the gas grill for numerous meals.We also utilized the provided sets of snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, and coolers (big plus at the beaches). I was a little leery about how all ten of us would shower in an hour's time to go out in the evening, but we never ran out of hot water (solar heated). We had a few questions that came up early in our stay and Lavonne was very quick to respond to our emails. This is every bit as advertised, with owners that provide you with information to set you up for a great stay on their awesome property. I would highly recommend this villa for all types of groups, whether it be family or couples such as ours.
