We very much appreciate your interest and hope we have the opportunity to be part of your memorable Aruba Experience.
We had a great time staying in this property as our home base for our first trip to Aruba. The location is great, only 2 minutes to a new, big, clean grocery store where you can get anything that you need for your stay, 3 minutes to Eagle Beach and 4 minutes to the Palm Beach area for all the hotels and restaurants.
Personally, we steered clear of the Palm Beach area except the first night because our flight arrived a little late and we needed to get something for dinner. We rented a Jeep from Jay's Car Rental and mostly spent just afternoons and evenings at the house after adventuring out for the day.
There was some construction going on next door to the house which started at about 7:30am every morning, but that's ok we were already up because the roosters crowed at 7:00am! lol. It didn't bother us at all, we were ready to get up by then anyway.
The house itself is great, you can open up all the windows in the afternoon and get a nice breeze. We only used the AC in the bedrooms at night to keep cool while sleeping.
The pool area was great with the covered patio area and lots of trees for shade in the afternoon.
The pool is serviced twice a week. Because of the great shade trees and constant breeze there was always debris in the pool which we scooped out with the pool cleaner a couple of times a day.
The 4th bedroom is the queen bedroom - so rented as a 3 bedroom you get 2 kings and 2 twins, which was perfect for us.
All in all the stay was great, I would recommend the house with the few small mentions above regarding the roosters, construction and pool cleaning. One other small thing there is no control over are that there are some dogs in a neighbouring apartment complex that are kept primarily on the patios/balconies so can be loud barking at times.
The rental agency itself was great and went above and beyond with a request we had. They always responded quickly and were on time for check in and check out.
There were lots of towels for the house and the beach and a starter pack of essentials (dish soap, laundry detergent and toilet paper) were provided. Hand soap and shampoo/conditioner were not provided in the bathrooms but we had brought our own because we know some places provide it and others don't.
All in all a great experience.
I almost hate to wax poetic about this place, so it will always be available when I want it. This rental is amazing! I loved EVERYTHING - home decor, pool, kitchen, number of rooms, location, all of it!!! And the staff of Aruba Happy Rentals, in particular Rosie, was very helpful and full of information.
This is a very beautiful property. It is quiet, restful, lots of space. The outdoor living area and pool are my very favorite things.
Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ? Yes, very accurate.
Was the property clean and well-maintained ? Absolutely!!!
Did the owner provide good customer service ? They went above and beyond! I got lost on my way from the airport to the house and they came to find me. Very pleased with my tour of the home and all info received about the home and the island.
Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ? Absolutely.
What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ? Easy access to grocery stores, the main street on the island, and local restaurants and fast food chains.
My family(husband, 2 children, 6 & 9, and myself), recently stayed at this rental during our 4th trip to Aruba,it is a very well located house in the middle of the island near the coast. Easy to get to all the beaches within 5-25 minutes depending on which beach you want to go to, Eagle beach being the shortest and Baby Beach being the longest drive. Super Foods grocery store is about a 2 minute drive.
The management company Aruba Happy Rentals was WONDERFUL to deal with. They were very responsive to any issues that arose during our stay and answered emails and phone calls promptly. I would definitely use this management company again.
As for the house rental it is a mix of old and new. The front section of the house being the old part and the back section being the new. It was a nice house just not a perfect fit for our family. The living room was not an inviting place to sit and relax after a long day at the beach and exploring. I would definitely recommend looking into more comfortable living room furniture that can comfortably accomodate a family or group. The bedrooms were nicely decorated, 2 of the bedrooms had VERY hard beds but the master bedroom was very comfortable, but everyone slept well. The ac in the house worked great and kept us all comfortable and cool. There are quite a few chickens that roam the property, some would come up to the patio/ pool area to use the bathroom so had to be a little careful not to step in their mess. But they were entertaining to watch especailly when they try jumping into the pool. The house was very secure with locked gate and security system.
To wrap it up this is a nice rental and Aruba Happy Rentals were great. We would definitely use Aruba Happy Rentals again when we travel back to Aruba.
