We first came to Aruba 10 years ago and found ourselves returning year after year and sometimes twice a year. While trying to escape the bitter cold weather of Wisconsin for the last twelve years we've vacationed through out the Caribbean but found ourselves always returning to the beautiful island of Aruba. After three years of searching for the perfect vacation home in Aruba. We've finally found it and it's truly a private paradise getaway!!!
You will enjoy the fact that this villa is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood at the end of a paved cult a sac so the traffic is minimal. The kitchen being centrally located in the villa is ideal for preparing food and not missing out on a single thing. We love that the pool is located close enough to the veranda that whether you are relaxing under it or in the pool you can carry on a conversation without having to yell back and forth. There is nothing more inconvenient than having to dry yourself off just to go into the house to use the restroom. That's where the outdoor half bath just steps away from the pool really comes in handy! We really like the fact that the bedrooms are very spacious and all have their own bathrooms which really gives it a 3 bedroom suite feel. Last but not least the incredible views of the sun setting on the ocean from the front master suite balcony are priceless!
Opal 131 was like being in our own home, Angie had all the details covered, from the detailed vacation manual covering all the amenities in the house to where to shop for groceries, what to do in Aruba, details on the beaches, etc. Opal 131 is located in a quiet neighborhood but close to Palm Beach and Eagle Beach and all the wonderful restaurants, shopping mall and resorts. We loved staying at the house and we will be back again, it was a wonderful experience for our first visit to Aruba. I recommend booking this house, you will not be disappointed.
From the minute we walked in the door we felt right at home. The Villa is exactly the way the pictures on the website show. The best part of the Villa is the kitchen. The kitchen has everything that a cook would ever need, which made this cook very happy.
The pool is wonderful, as is the sitting area and table and chairs on the veranda. What an excellent place to spend a day in total privacy.
The Villa has everything you might need during your stay. That includes beach chairs, small tables, and beach towels to take to the beach. Great amenities!
We traveled as 3 couples. The Villa was ideal in that each couple had their own bedroom with adjoining bathroom. There was a great deal of privacy for everyone.
You will need a vehicle to tour the island. The Villa is located in a nice neighborhood and is very convenient to many places. You are only 5 minutes from the High Rise hotel area which has a paved path that is ideal for walking, 5 minutes from the best snorkeling on the island (Boca Catalina), and 10 minutes from the best beach on the island, Eagle Beach.
The Villa is located near several good restaurants. Some of our favorites include Bavaria and a new Indonesian restaurant (opened 9/30/16) called Bentang Bali. A morning breakfast visit to Diana's Pancakes under the windmill at The Mill Resort is another must. Yummy, yummy, yummy!
Another wonderful spot to visit is Zeerover in Savaneta. It has the freshest fish and shrimp on the island. It's an open air place where you eat mostly with your hands. You can also watch the fisherman come in with their daily catch. It is worth the drive.
The Villa is also convenient to the best happy hour in Aruba which is a Matthews on the beach.
Angie and the property management team were wonderful to work with. They were very responsive to any question or issue (tropical storm Matthew zapped one of the cable boxes in one of the bedrooms) we had.
The only caution I would mention if you are considering renting this villa is that the master bedroom is upstairs and is accessible via a winding staircase. This was not an issue for our group, but if you have people with mobility issues, this is something you should take into account. It's not a negative, just a heads up.
Overall, the Villa was fantastic. This was our best experience with VRBO ever, which is saying a lot. We would definitely stay at this location again in the future. The only regret we had was having to leave after only 10 days!
The house and location was perfect. The owners are very meticulous and thoughtful- they followed through to ensure our expectations were met. The house surpassed our expectations -we did not want for anything! Perfect for three couples, minutes from beach and downtown area of Aruba. Cable/satellite provided and no issues. Owner left a notebook of information for places to eat, things to do, and the kitchen did not lack anything! I baked a birthday cake and made use of the bake ware and kitchen supplies. The house is just lovely!
This was our fourth visit to Aruba. We usually stay at a resort in the low rise area but decided to give Opal 131 a try so our growing family could all be together. Great decision!! First of all, the house is just as nice as it looks in the photos online. No disappointing surprises! We started and ended each day in the beautiful pool with the grandkids enjoying the floats and toys provided for us. The huge kitchen is a dream with high end appliances and stocked with all the tools we needed to prepare some delicious meals. Opal 131 is located conveniently near the beaches and high rise area on a quiet cul de sac. We felt very safe with the alarm system they have installed. Angie does everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. We plan to return to our home away from home asap.
We just returned from our first trip to Aruba staying in Opal 131. Can think of nothing more to say than simply amazing. The villa is absolutely beautiful with all of the amenities of home, plus some. We spent tons of time on the poolside veranda while the kids splashed around in the pool. The villa is conveniently located close to the high rise hotels and all of the restaurants and beaches. Angie and the property management are gems to work with and strive to make sure that your stay is comfortable and relaxing. By far the most memorable vacation that my family has taken over the years.
Had a wonderful trip to Aruba and a stay at this home was outstanding. Travis and Angie have all the details covered that many rental properties do not. The location is very conveniently located to the beaches and shopping yet located in a very quiet neighborhood. The house is very clean with everything a person could need. Each bedroom has its own bathroom supplied with shampoo, conditioners, and soap. The pool area is awesome complete with floaties and a convenient rest room and outdoor shower. The outside dining area is relaxing for morning coffee and mid afternoon cocktails. A local outdoor bar, JJ's, is only a minute away to have a drink with the locals. Angie is easy to work with and is quick to return your email and will answer any questions you have. Thanks for everything! Can't wait to return. Jeff and Kelly.
