Only 1/4 mile from Palm Beach and Hadicurari Beach, a popular windsurfing beach, your private condo is within 1 mile of Boca Catalina, Malmok and Arashi Beach and just 2 miles from the world famous Eagle Beach.

Your beautiful balcony suite overlooks a water garden paradise with a winding 85' swimming pool, waterfall, king and coconut palm trees, tropical gardens, a large gazebo, picnic patio, and lots of warm breezes, bright sun and blue skies.

All of our past guests have stated in one form or another - "Stay once and you won't ever want to stay anywhere else."

Plus provide all of our guests with our exclusive publications; The Top 10 Restaurants, Top 10 Attractions and Top 10 Thing To Do That Nobody Else is Going to Tell You About. This will make the great vacation an amazing one! We guarantee it. Accept no imitations; this is isn't tourist-trap nonsense off the internet.

If you are at all familiar with Aruba, this private complex is just across from The Marriott and Ritz Carlton and is in a very safe neighborhood with private, gated parking.

You can e-mail us for availability, as we don't use this websites availability calendar since we are listed on so many different websites. To check availability use the "SEND AN E-MAIL" or "SEND A MESSAGE" link to the right.

Please Do Not Use The "BOOK IT" or "REQUEST TO BOOK" link to inquire about available dates or you will need to provide credit card information through this site.

Here is more you should know:

We are the only unit in this complex that offers our guests ALL of the following; a personal barbecue grill on your balcony, aluminum and canvas beach chairs, a cooler, hot water in the sinks and showers, a smoke-free environment (smoking outside permitted), information on discount car rental and water sport activities with some the lowest rates in Aruba, our exclusive Top 1- Travel Tip Guides on the most popular and most remote beaches on Aruba, the best restaurants - without exception, the coolest casual eateries, pier bars and amazing, romantic, feet-in-the-sand beach dining. We also provide discounts on future travel to Aruba and any of our 7 properties, which is unavailable anywhere else, by anyone else.

We are often asked if any units are different in the complex. Are some better than others? There are several nice units for rent in this beautiful complex, but not all are the same. So if you are shopping around and see differences in rental rates, it is for good reason. There's more than meets the eye. With over 400 5-star reviews of our vacation villas in Aruba, we suggest you be sure that any property you rent in Aruba has good, qualified reviews. All of our properties are first-class, tastefully decorated, comfortable, well equipped and located in the most popular area in Aruba for American, Canadian and European travelers.

This fantastic romantic vacation destination is just one of them and is a good start for anyone looking for an affordable, serene and tropical getaway. It is perfect for honeymooners, those celebrating anniversaries, or anyone in love. It's even a great place for small families, as the courtyard pool area provides privacy and security.

You're just a click away from sipping a tropical drink in the pool as the waterfall trickles down the coral and the palm whisper in the sunny breeze. And you're just a stone's throw from the turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean!

with only 26 units in this complex it never feels crowded. And unlike the hotel pools, you will never have to fight for a chaise lounge like at all of the local hotels. If you've ever stayed at a hotel and had to wake up early to put a towel on a chair to guarantee a place at a pool, well then you know what I am talking about. Here you can have peace, privacy and a spot at the pool in the sun or under your own palm tree any time of day.

Aruba has beautiful weather all year long. It is out of the hurricane belt, so it is perfectly safe during hurricane season. The temperature ranges between 80 and 90 degrees throughout the year, with a consistent cooling breeze, making it feel more like 80.

If you need a larger property you can check out our other listings on HomeAway, including 929289, 3493931 and 3841103. These are beautiful, 5-star, private homes that can accommodate anywhere from 2 to 12 guests. You may even find some great last-minute specials.



There's no shortage of fun things to do in Aruba, but some of the best things aren't promoted or even talked about. It's a mystery even to us, but we've done it all and we share it exclusively with our guests in our recently released 'Top 10 Cool Things To Do In Aruba That Nobody Will Tell You About.'

It will turn an otherwise great vacation into an amazing one. We guarantee it. Only our guests can experience the island in all its majesty and can see and experience many things they would have otherwise missed. You will not get this from any other vacation rental in Aruba (although some will try! LOL) .

Every travel website, hotel and tourism guide is going to promote the same ten or twelve tourist attractions that make Aruba famous, like Baby Beach, the Divi-Divi Trees, the Natural Bridge and the Natural Pool. If you've never seen them then maybe you should, but there's more... so much more. And you need not miss the ordinary to experience the extraordinary!

With our 'Top 10 Cool Things To Do In Aruba That Nobody Will Tell You About' you will not only get to see all the things that people usually talk about but you be able to see and experience all the great things that NOBODY is talking about. And it's only available to our guests! It will make your great vacation an amazing one.


Please note: Please click on the "SEND AN E-MAIL" or "SEND A MESSAGE" link on the right side or the bottom of the page to confirm travel dates and check availability before reserving dates.

Thank you and Happy Travels!

RESERVATION AND TRAVEL TIPS: Reserving your travel dates as early as possible insures availability. Often times people book accommodations well in advance of airline tickets due to the limited number of properties for rent on an island the size of Aruba. Booking flights at least 2 to 3 months in advance of travel insures the best airline rates. So please know that it is quite common not to book both airline tickets and accommodations at the same time, especially if your travel dates are December through August.

About Michael

We have been in real estate and vacation rentals for over 10 years. We have rental properties in 3 states and the Caribbean. There's nothing better than working with people who are doing what we all want to be doing, planning their next vacation.

We love the work because it is rewarding on so many levels.

We purchased our first property in Aruba in 2005 and now have 6 beautiful vacation homes available for vacation travelers. They are great for couples, families, small groups or guy or girl-cations, and like the condos are close to it all!

Check them out and share with family and friends for your next great vacation!

Michael purchased this condo in 2005

Why Michael chose Bakval

Far outside the hurricane belt, Aruba is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. With daily temperatures averaging 85 degrees, its turquoise-blue seas, amazing blue skies, and world-famous breezes, it's easy to understand why Aruba is the most revisited island in the Caribbean. It's also the reason we invested in rental properties here.

Our condos are unique in that they are beautiful, pool-side balcony units, which is unlike most of the units in this beautiful complex. Only 8 of the 26 units can make this claim. It's lush and green, has an over-sized pool with a wonderful s waterfall, and is completely private. There's nothing like it in the Palm Beach Area.

There is a large bbq and gazebo area for dining outside and entertaining guests and a laundry facility right on site. The pool changes color at night making the courtyard garden glow.

We are just outside the high-rise hotel area, where the nightlife is, so you can be close to action too! There's nothing like it around, and as you can see from our reviews, you won't regret it!

What makes this condo unique

Unlike other condo complexes, this is only 26 units, so it is boutique-like but has a huge pool and garden area making it feel much bigger. It never feels crowded and you're never fighting for a pool lounge.

We are the only units in the complex to offer beach chairs, a cooler for the beach, lots of travel recommendations for your stay to help take the guess work out of where to go and what to do, and information on discount car rental and travel discounts. We also provide information on what NOT to do, so you save time, money and aggravation.

There's a very distinct reason we have over 400 5-star reviews for our properties, more than any other property in Aruba. It's because we work hard to make the experience as close to perfect as possible for our guests. We hope you will think so too!

Wonderful & Spacious!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week long vacation in this rental. We loved that it truly was just like a 1 bedroom home. The huge walk-in shower was fabulous. The A/C kept us extremely comfortable. Internet service was great. The kitchen was fully equipped with all your needs. Very happy a cooler & beach chairs were provided. The pool was clean & relaxing. It was nice having a laundry room downstairs. We made lots of trips to the mini supermarket across the street. We rented a jeep for the week and enjoyed how close we were to lots of things we did. I would most definitely recommend this place and would gladly stay again. The owner is very prompt to responding to your needs as well. Fabulous stay!!

Nice Condo - close to everything

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the condo route in Aruba, this is the way to go! The condo is clean and in a safe area. The condo is close to all of the great beaches and a wonderful way to see the island; better than the typical resort stay. Booking the condo was easy and the owner's guide for extra Aruba "things to do" recommendations is a nice touch. Great experience!

This condo is in the perfect location...minutes away from the beautiful beaches, golf, shopping, dining, and water activities. This condo is fully loaded and has everything needed to have a perfect TV in the bedroom and living room along with a DVD player, a selection of movies, games and Wi-Fi. The kitchen has everything to prepare meals. The walk-in shower with the rain shower head is awesome. The condo was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the mornings with coffee and on the beach with wine watching the sunset. The pool and courtyard are relaxing and quiet. There is so much to see and do on the Island and I'm so happy we rented a car. We explored the majority of the island and visited all of the beaches. I would definitely recommend this condo and we will most certainly return!

This condo has all the comforts of home. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The electric grill on the patio is a bonus! The shower is huge with a rain shower head along with plenty of storage in the bath and bedroom to unpack toiletries and clothes. The bed is comfortable as is the furniture in the living room. There is Wi-Fi, a DVD player with a great selection of movies and a variety of card and dice games. The condo was clean and so was the property itself. The pool area is so relaxing especially with the waterfall. This condo is a 12 minute walk to the beach or a 2 minute drive. The condo is centrally located and close to shopping, beaches, casinos, movie theater, bars and restaurants. We will definitely stay at this condo again because of the amenities and location!

WOW !!! STUNNING !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do it no justice. The condo was very tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. We loved the selection of DVD's which was an added bonus.

Everything in the condo looks brand new and we really enjoyed the private electric BBQ grill on the patio.

The internet connection was very fast and we also enjoyed the Smart TV in the living room and bedroom allowing us to connect to You Tube and various other websites.

Thanks for a great stay and we WILL be back.

You can take various type of tours, self-guided or guided through Arikok National Park and to the world famous Natural Bridge and Natural Pool.

Banks, supermarkets, shopping are all within a short distance from your private condo. And we're just about 10 miles from the airport.

Other Activities: wave tubing, parasailing, snorkeling, wreck diving, ATVing, guided adventure tours, cave tours, kite surfing, wind surfing helicopter tours, casinos, sightseeing, kayaking, 4-wheeling, caves, submarine ride... and more.

Golf: One 9-hole golf course at Divi Links or the 18-hole golf course at Tiera del Sol, both just 2 minutes away. Both are spectacular!

With our 5 star-rated condos and houses in Aruba you can expect a 5-star experience. Collectively we have more 5-star reviews than any other vacation properties in Aruba.

Skip the crowded hotels, don't limit your vacation experience to a restrictive 'all-inclusive' or waste money on some 3-star or 4-star property when you can have a 5-star experience and make 5-star memories at a great price. You only live once. You won't regret it - we guarantee it.
