About David and Helen
We live in US and We're IT Professionals
David and Helen purchased this House in 2012
Why David and Helen chose Palm Beach
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. Best, Helen, David

Very good location.
Our party of six rented this home and thoroughly enjoyed the space and comfort. It was much better than staying in a hotel for a week. We were able to grill on our food and eat breakfast at our leisure. The kitchen is fully equipped. There was nothing we were missing.
The location is pretty good. A very short drive to beaches and the high rise hotels. We had a rental car and we were glad we did. The longest drive we took was to Flying Fishbone for dinner - about a 30 minute drive. This was well worth it. The food and ambiance far exceeded any of the hotel restaurants we tried.
The beds were quite comfortable and the air conditioning works great. The property owners are very responsive and sincerely cared about our happiness with their home. We would definitely recommend this property.
We have stayed at several VRBOs over the years and this one is top notch. We had someone waiting for us to go over the home. It was perfectly stocked, comfortable beds and roomy. We had 4 adults and 3 children and we all had plenty of room. We ate in quite a bit and the indoor and outdoor kitchen were equipped well. We felt safe the whole time. I was able to run to the lighthouse daily with no safety concerns. Highly recommend.
This is our third stay at Villa Monplaisir and we couldn't be happier! Each visit is like coming home again. It is such a comfortable, well-located and well appointed property. We were absolutely thrilled with the upgrades made to the home and each addition made our experience more enjoyable and more comfortable. Thank you David and Helen for creating such a wonderful place!
Home away from home
This was our 2nd time staying at Villa MonPlaisir. We could not ask for any better accommodations. Everything we needed was there, the kitchen is fully stocked, lots of towels and linens, lots of pool supplies, BBQ comes in very handy. Washer and dryer is also a great add-on. Beach chairs, coolers and so much more. The beds are very comfortable and there's enough space for privacy for everyone. You can't beat the location. Minutes away from everything. We like to walk down to the restaurants in the evening, many restaurants are only 3 minute walk, and the Palm Beach area is at 10 minute walk. All beaches are 5 to 10 minute drive. Our stay was for 5 weeks so we got to know the house very well. The owners and property managers are excellent to work with. We didn't need much but if we did, it was looked after immediately. The house is very clean, private and so comfortable. I can't say enough good things about our stay. We will be booking for next year at the same house. Love it! thanks to Helen, David, Julie and Geronimo for making our stay an excellent one. I love all the renos you have done. The backyard is an oasis. Beautiful property. see you next year!
Clean,roomy,excellent location, easy walk to strip
The location was walking distance to high-rise area and a variety of restaurants even closer. Grocery store was within a 5 minute drive. The villa was spacious and accommodated our group of 10. The pool was larger than expected and was clean and well maintained. Randolph the property manager was welcoming, above and helpful and attentive. The pool area had plenty of seating with room to spare. It also had space for sunbathers and/or those who prefer shade. The kitchen had a lot of seating and appliances were clean, up to date and worked properly. All 3 bathrooms were sparkling clean as was the rest of the property. We had a lot of fun and it was nice to be able to cook and spend time there.
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
