The house was in excellent shape. Jose was there to fix some small details and always in a good mood. The location of the house could not be better, the peace and quiet of the pool area is incredible. Only five minutes from Arashi and the local markets were very useful. I recommend it to everyone.
José & Rixt Marín met us at the house and were so nice and welcoming. They walked us through the house and went over everything with us. My husband and I have been married 20 years but our families had never met because his lived in Venezuela and mine in the USA. Aruba was a perfect place for them to meet and the house was perfect for us all to be in. I will never forget this experience because the atmosphere was so warm and happy! The house is beautiful and the pictures don't do it justice. We were all very comfortable and there were 9 of us. We had everything we needed from beach towels to cooking utensils in the kitchen. We are already planning our trip for next year!!! Thank you to Jose and Rixt for everything!!! Many blessings to both of you!!! Razek & Skycha Mdeiway
We just got home and had a great vacation in Aruba. Opal 57 was a great house. It was clean, welcoming, large and the back yard area is amazing to say the least. We had two families and split the house. There were 7 of us total and we never felt cramped in any way. We were just minutes from the beach and high rise hotel area. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
My parents and their friends stayed in this villa when we all went to aruba for my wedding. My parents loved this villa and unlike many of the other villas, it has some basic items such as coffee, sugar, spices, oil, etc in case you just arrive and want to make something fast! The villa is beautiful and the breeze that you get in the kitchen and main space is great! With the Zika scare, my parents did close the doors during the evening and they did have some trouble with the AC unit in the living room and dining room but Jose came to help. Unfortunately, it wouldn't turn off after it was turned on. However, no complaints - a great place to stay and just note that two of the bedrooms do share a bathroom.
The House was even better than the pictures. Backyard very private. Balcony had perfect sunsets. We will be back. Thanks.
Jose received us and showed us the house, the house was amazing and just as the pictures. I traveled with my girlfriend and some friends and we had the best time. The pool and beach areas are great for spending the evenings and relax.
When we arrived to the house it was really really clean and the rooms, dinning room, kitchen were amazing.
Thank you Jose and Rixt, We definitively recommend this house to everyone and we hope to go back any time soon.
The only problem of the house is that you would not want to leave!. ;)
Villa Mariposa is located an 8 minutes walk to the beach. You can go through your back yard right away to the beach next to Ritz Carlton. At the property we do have private volleyball field or beach tennis field. Also you can play soccer here. You can walk to the High Rise area all though we always recommend a car. Ritz Carlton and Marriott Hotel you can see from your terrace.
There is public transportation on the main road. There is a bus stop every hour during the week. We have the bus schedule for your convenience in the villa. We do recommend you to rent a car on Aruba. Most of the times it is too hot to walk. Best way also to see and explore the island!
