Peace & Tranquility

  • 4 of 5

If you enjoy generic hotel rooms that do not give you a test of the local culture and flavor, this place is NOT for you. Rona's property is beautiful, comfortable, calming and tranquil. We enjoyed breakfast every morning by the pool in the comfort of a very eclectic garden setting (with lovely canine guests). The rooms were comfortable and spacious. Was every detail of the room perfect? No but this only added to the charm. I would definitely recommend to travelers who aren't into the hotel crowds.

Guests should know ahead that there are dogs that live on the property. Once we met them we enjoyed

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful flowers and loved the birds that visited. No access to a cooktop to fix eggs was a bummer. We're able to get ice from owners refrigerator when kitchen door was open. Pool was wonderful. Quite private and able to walk to beaches and bus stop if you don't rent a car. Cab from airport $30 for 2 adults

Owner's Response: Dear Anonymous, thanks for your generous comments. As you know, this is not a full service hotel, this is a vacation rental unit, and the price reflects it, so from a value for money point of view we deserve a much better rating :) But, I agree flowers and birds are lovely, pool is wonderful and private! And, this is just to let you know that the listing does mention the dogs, and does indicate the absence of cooking facilities. Come back soon!

Beautiful describes the property and the owner. Rona is very hospitable as she wants to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed. The surroundings are inviting and serene; I think I counted over 200 clay pots full of succulants and flowers inviting you to sit and have a drink. Our unit was fully stocked, quiet and clean and the bbq was put to use a few times throughout the week. The local beaches are a few steps away inviting you for a morning walk, relaxing lunch or to watch the sunset. I think it is the best area to stay on the island-close to shopping, restaurants, yet quiet and neighbourly.

Fantastic Location and Host!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this location after the recommendation of a fellow diver on a previous trip to Aruba. Their recommendation was priceless as we enjoyed the peace and serenity this property provides. Rona went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, and the trip had the feeling of staying with your non imposing family.

The property is only a 3-5 minute drive from the High Rise resort beaches where most of the beach activities originate so the location is great, especially for the price! Soap was provided in the bathroom, but I'm not sure about shampoo as we brought our own I'd recommend doing the same thing. We will stay here again the next time we have the opportunity to visit Aruba, and I'm not sure how I can provide a higher recommendation than that!!

Villa Bougainvillea is located a few steps from the Caribbean Sea. We rent 3 lovely, spacious studios—with separate garden entrances—adjacent to our family home on famed Malmok Beach. Malmok Beach is quiet, made of small, crescent-shaped, sandy bays with easy entry to gentle water. Casinos and restaurants are located less than a mile down the scenic road. The award-winning golf course, Tierra Del Sol, is just a few yards down the street. There is a bus stop outside the gate; the bus goes to Oranjestad, the shopping capital of the Caribbean, though it is advisable to rent a car, which gets you around easier.

Additional expenses are $3 a day environmental fee and 9.5% government tax on room rate, payable upon check out!
