Happy with our stay! Great communication with Greg. He went out of his way to help me with the car rental company we choose More4less (which was great) and any questions or concerns I had. The Studio property is simple and cozy with what is needed. We just wanted a safe and quiet place to just sleep and shower due to the exploring we wanted to do in the Island. Also, We didn't have any problems with the next door neighbors. Overall had no issues and we are so happy with our stay. Thank you Greg and also Azaira that helped with the checking in and out!
Places I would reccomend in the Island would be De Palm Tours 8 Hr Safari Off Roading Tour. Amazing experience! Places to eat on my list would be: Zeerover, Flying Fishbone and Mahara(Lebanse Food).
2 swimsuits and 2 sun dresses is all you need!
If you are in Aruba for Beaching, Sun and Sunsets, this is the perfect location. Extremely private and well located. A beautiful and spacious yard replete with self watering desert and tropical plants and an outdoor shower. Furnished with everything with from beach chairs to can opener! A contemporary and tasteful kitchenette. A large storage room with washing machine. Spacious indoor shower and modern sparkling bathroom. Owner always thoughtful and quickly responsive. We're and old married couple who just returned form nearly 3 weeks there and just grew to love the studio more and more!
Aruban Gem Esmeralda was the perfect getaway!
Esmeralda 104 was exactly as Gregory described on VRBO/HomeAway; the apartment was perfect for a couple. The courtyard was very private complete with flowers and shrubs - it was picture perfect! The outdoor tiled shower area was a great feature that I often used in the evening after the beach. We enjoyed our morning coffee or espresso on the patio watching the different kind of birds that visited. In the garden there were additional Adirondack chairs and loungers to use.
The apartment was very clean and well-maintained. We especially loved the bathroom with its gorgeous tiles throughout; the shower area was amazing. There were more than adequate towels for bathroom and beach use. There were also beach chairs to use - a great feature! The kitchen was well equipped including a coffee maker/espresso machine. An important kitchen feature was the provision of cleaning supplies under the sink.
Greg responded to any questions we had about the apartment, the immediate area or Aruba almost immediately. In fact he gave us such a list of must sees and do's that we were unable to complete it in our short week there.
We toured the island each day including the California Lighthouse in the north with its amazing views, the donkey sanctuary, and of course the beaches , Arashi to the north and Baby and Rodgers beaches in the south. The roads are very well maintained and for the most part the traffic flows well. Aruba has no shortage of restaurants; we tried several including the Driftwood (great fish), Dragonfly (Japanese cuisine) and Café 080 (Dutch/Aruban menu in an outdoor bar setting).
Without any reservation, we would recommend this apartment to anyone!
Thank you very much for the amazing review! On behalf of our entire team, we are thrilled to hear that you had an awesome vacation. We would love to welcome you back at the Aruban Gem Esmeralda on the One Happy Island. Please feel free to reach out at anytime with any questions, and we do have a repeat guest discount for future stays.
Thank you again for your kindness and wish you all the best.
Another awesome stay in Aruba. This is still a hidden gem for us. Quiet and secluded from the hotels but close to Arashi beach. Greg and Izaira were attentive as always but really wasn’t needed as we had everything at the unit, plus the little extras that make the stay even better. Beach chairs, noodles for the water (they help to snorkel if you are not a great swimmer), coolers, shopping bags . Always love the outdoor shower when we are here too!
Spent a little more time at Boca Catalina this time and the snorkelling is fantastic there, right from shore and lots of fish. This is the area they take all the snorkelling trips so must be good right! Just a few minute drive from this place.
Izaira lets us check out a little later since we had a later flight which was very helpful as well, gave us an extra morning at the beach and still time to clean up before heading out. Always accommodating, thanks Izaira! We know where to go when in Aruba....right here!!
Great Studio Apartment
This apartment is excellent. It has everything you need for a pleasant stay. It is very close to the best beaches in Aruba. I would highly recommend this to any couples who want a very clean place to stay. The yard is very nice to sun in and just relax. The owner and manager are very nice to work with!
January in paradise
We were very pleased with our studio. It had everything you could possibly want. Fully equipped kitchen with air and a washing machine. The yard outside was huge with a BBQ, outdoor shower, lots of extra seating and a clothes line. Definitely a property to come back to.
We were very close to Arashi Beach and it became our go to beach most days. The owner supplied beach chairs and cooler so were able to take our lunch to the beach. Lots of snorkelling and beaches on the island. The beaches are pristine and the local people are so friendly and helpful. The one must do excursion is De Palm Tours Off Road Safaris - Natural Pool Adventure. You really need an excursion to see the other side of the island. It's so rugged and beautiful and we had a total blast. The island features loads of fantastic restaurants. Aruba is definitely a beautiful island and well worth returning to.
