About David and Helen

We're IT Professionals

David and Helen purchased this villa in 2012

Why David and Helen chose Aruba

We bought this property because we liked it's unique layout and location:

L-shaped with a totally private courtyard, Villa is airy and well ventilated - all rooms have cathedral ceilings, and all closets are walk-in.

It takes about 10 minutes to walk to Palm Beach which is one of the best beaches on the island plus upscale shopping, eating, entertainment.

We love snorkeling so when we come here we rent a car and go to our favorite Boca Catalina beach which is just 10 minutes drive.

We live in US and come to our house in Aruba every year. While we are back in US our villa is taken care of by a very good management company we hired.

Guest services, cleaning, gardening, pool care, etc - all taken care off.

We love our house - hopefully so will you if you choose to rent it.


Helen, David

What makes this villa unique

Unlike the crowded hotels, our home gives you both the seclusion & privacy &

the convenience of a great location just outside the hotel area, close to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, sister in law and I rented this house for 12 nights. Location was amazing. Walking distance to beach, restaurants and bars was less than 10 minutes. House was very spacious inside and out. Great pool to cool off in. Plenty of lounge chairs and a covered lanai if you needed to be in from the sun. We had a very relaxing vacation at this house.

average rating of 5.0 based on 29 reviews

Excellent...even if we got rained IN!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you will need to have an amazing vacation/holiday in Aruba! It's centrally located so you can be either a walk or short drive away from the best beaches! It was equipped with everything we needed, including board games to keep our 4 year old son happy during the worst rainfall the island has seen in several years. The owners are not only gracious but overly caring and generous. They exceeded our expectations which can be difficult considering we are New Yorkers. I'd recommend a vehicle as the home does come with beach chairs which is much cheaper than renting them. Moomba Beach and Arashi were our favorites. We will be back for sure!

i want to start by saying thank you so much to David and Helen! From the moment I emailed with questions they always replied promptly with answers and information. They were wonderful to work with. They were always available for any questions about our up coming trip. Even though I never met them face to face I feel like they have become a great friends. My husband brought me here for my 50th birthday and oh my was it the best birthday ever! We looked at many places to stay in Aruba, and even though this was more space than we needed, since it was only the two of, us we choose it. I'm so thankful we did!!! Their home was wonderful!!! It was very private and yet so convient to everything. It has everything you could possibly want or need. With it only being the two of us we only used one bedroom but the bed was very comfortable! I can't say enough good things about our experience from start to end. This island and house are beautiful. We did rent a car and drove around the island and visited different beaches. We enjoyed it so much my husband and I made the decision that this will now become a yearly place to spend at least a week. We will be booking a week next year with David and Helen. I'm writing this review as we are ending our week and about to make our way to the airport, and neither of us want to leave :(. If you are looking for a house in Aruba don't let pass this one up! I just want to say a special thank you to the two of you for my birthday surprise! Between the two of you, my wonderful husband, and this beautiful happy place it will be one I'll never forget!

Honeymoon Haven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. The house was perfect and we couldn't have been more pleased. The house was comfortable and roomy, even though we only used half of it. The pool was great and very private.The wall around the back yard is 10 feet high so you get complete privacy. The washer and dryer are in a little room outside by the pool. We really appreciated the beach chairs and used them daily.

The house is located a couple of blocks off the main road in Palm Beach. We had a rental car which allowed us to explore the island. Arashi beach was our favorite - very pretty and less crowded.

The owner was great to work with and went above and beyond to help us out before, during and after our visit. We highly recommend this for couples seeking seclusion and itwould also be great for large families.

One of the best places we've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

We've done vacation rentals all over the world and Villa Monplaisir is one of the best we've stayed in.

Location is excellent and quickly found the back roads to the beach, groceries, airport, etc.

Villa is spacious, clean, comfortable and private. Backyard with pool, cabana, outdoor kitchen with grill, and laundry is just another room in the house with no roof. :)

Owners and management are easily reachable and very helpful.

When we return to Aruba we'll stay at this place again!

Practical home with a great floor plan.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week stay at Villa Monplaisir. The management of the property were very helpful prior to and following our stay. All my expectations were met or exceeded. The photos are a very accurate representation of what the property looks like. Beds were comfortable, the A/C worked great and the floor plan was very practical. The Master bedroom being located away from the main area kept the noise out and allowed for my two young children to sleep easily during nap time and early bed time hours. I was a little surprised to find there was no oven, however, they do have a NuWave oven and toaster oven as an alternative. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Aruba.

Palm Beach
Car: recommended

Walking distance -- Palm Beach, a beautiful white sandy beach where the the Pro Am wind-surfing tournament is held annually. There are also plenty of white sandy beaches up and down the west coast and within driving distance; most within a 10 minute drive. All beaches in Aruba are public (this includes the beaches at the hotels) and most have free public parking areas. Also, most of the hotels have umbrellas and chairs, but may charge visitors for use. Boca Catalina, one of the best snorkeling locations on the island, is only a 7-10 minute drive.

The public bus stop is only a 5 minute walk; the buses provide service to most of the beaches, Oranjestad, and, with connections, the south and middle parts of the island.

Other Activities: Boating, shopping, kayaking, miniature golf, tennis
