Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Great quiet property near beaches away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts. Had everything you may need for a short or long term rental. Property owner and manager were a delight to deal with. Definitely need a car rental to get to places. Has plenty of closet space too. Thank you!

Hidden Aruban Gem

  • 5 of 5

We just get back from our Aruban vacation. And we are so happy with our choice to stay at Esmeralda -Aruban Gem.

This is a hidden gem in Aruba. The location is great, often called by locals "Beverly Hills of Aruba". Just within 3-4 minutes drive from the best beaches ( Arashi and Boca Catalina). Also many restaurants, shopping malls, supermarkets are very close. Apartment is a brand new and stuffed with everything, what couple need to have worry free vacation. Literally, you should bring your swimsuit and toothbrush. The communications with the owner were so easy and Greg was so attentive and helpful.

The property manager was very friendly, considerate and helpful.

The property also is well maintained. There is a grill available, if you prefer to cook your own meal, what we did.

There is an outdoor shower to wash the sand off you when you return from the beach. They can provide beach chairs if you request them. The neighborhood is very quite and safe.

If you looking for very relaxing, quite place to stay, where no phones ringings, no car's honking, no sirens sounds, this is the place to go.

We'll definitely return there.

Perfect Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at Aruban Gem Esmeralda at Malmock and we had another awesome stay! The studio has everything you could possibly need (fully stocked kitchen, large closet space, large bathroom, comfortable bed, plenty of linens and beach towels and chairs for the beach) and is located in a wonderful neighborhood that is fairly close to all the beaches and shopping. You definitely should rent a jeep and cruise the island and enjoy all the different beaches (Malmock, Arashi, Palm, & Eagle). The owner and manager of the property are always easy to work with and very prompt to answer all questions you may have. We travel to Aruba at least once a year (sometimes more), and provided we don't have other couples traveling with us, my husband and I will always stay here if it is available!

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely stay in Aruba.

Property is nice and clean. It's equipped with everything you may need for a nice beach vacation.

My wife and I are pretty picky about mattresses. And, fortunately, bed was very comfortable for us -

not too soft and not too firm.

Location was perfect for us. This is a quiet neighborhood located close to the Malmok Beach.

It's also pretty close to high-rise hotels area (beaches, restaurants, entertainment and night life).

I had no problems to park my rental car for $1 (full day) in the center of this area. Also, you can find a free

spot located on the beach in between the Hilton (Radisson) and Occidental Hotels Palm Beach.

Izaira and her husband met us at the property location. They are very nice and friendly guys.

Provided advises helped us to save lots of time and avoid potential problems and/or mistakes.

So, checking - checkout went easily.

Gregory (the property owner) is also nice and friendly person. He kept us updated all the time with all the information.

And, this info was really helpful.

We are very picky about beaches also.

We visited all Aruba beaches. And, finally, we chose the Arashi Beach (next to the Malmok Beach).

This is a bit 'wavy' beach (don't worry - just a bit). But, water was absolutely clean and very worm (28 - 29C).

And, beach sand was amazingly white. Beach is not crowded and well equipped. Parking is free and it wasn't

a problem to find a parking spot close to the beach entrance.

Snorkeling was perfect. First time I came to the water with my mask and snorkel I met two big turtles.

Colorful corals and fishes... Wow! ...just keep closer to the Malmok Beach.

I'm also a scuba diver. And, I had two perfect two tanks dives. There are lots of water sport/scuba sites around.

So, just pick your own. I was pretty happy with 'Aruba Watersports Center '.

It's a good idea to rent a car if you pick a rental property for you vacation in Aruba.

We went with 'Wheels2goaruba'. Ricky met us at the airport. Paperwork took just a few minutes.

Reasonable prices and high quality cars and service.

Strongly recommended.

Also, don't forget to install 'Aruba offline GPS navigator' app on your phone.

It's very helpful for those who rent a car in Aruba first time.

Usually, we follow the rule not to visit the same place twice.

But, my wife and I were absolutely happy. And we plan to go to Aruba again.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We (two of us) stayed here for 28 nights and found this place to be one of the best vacation rentals we've ever had. The location is very good. You can get to restaurants, shopping, supermarkets, etc in minutes. Also easy to go sightseeing from here and close to many beaches. We recommend you rent a car to get around although you could use the public transit, taxis or even bicycles if you wanted to. The neighbourhood is very quiet and seemed quite safe. Izaira, the property manager was very friendly, considerate and helpful as was the owner, Gregory.

The kitchen is very well stocked. You can easily cook your own meals. There is a handy briquette BBQ outside of good quality right near the patio. The patio is a good size with good furniture on it. It is sunny in the morning and begins to be shady around 10 or 11am or so and then remains shady throughout the rest of the day - just right!

The bed is spacious and comfortable and there is a futon for extra guests or to use for sitting and enjoying the big screen TV. It has a spacious walk-in closet to store your things - lots of shelves and room in there. The bathroom also has plenty of room as does the shower. The air conditioner is quiet and works very well if you need a break from the Aruban heat. Or you can open all the windows you can enjoy the tropical breeze. If you have kids the yard gives them room to play and also has an outdoor shower to wash the sand off you when you return from the beach. They can provide beach chairs if you request them.

You won't go wrong if you choose this spot! Highly recommended!
