Spanish style villa with your own private pool, surrounded by a tropical garden. Our home sleeps 6 people and is located in a quiet residential area at just 3 minutes driving from the best beaches from Aruba.

The livingroom has a high, wooden ceiling and features a comfortable couch, flatscreen TV, dining table, fully equipped kitchen with 4-pits cooktop, oven, microwave, dishwasher and large fridge.

The masterbedroom has an ensuite bathroom and two smaller bedrooms which share a second bathroom.

In the living room, entrance hallway and masterbedroom you'll find double doors which you can open up to the backyard.

All rooms are airconditioned (with remote-control) and there is free WIFI throughout the villa.

The backyard features a refreshing, private freeform pool of approx. 7m. x 3m. with a max. depth of 1.50m, which can be illuminated at night. Furthermore you can enjoy the outdoor shower and lounge beds under the palapa. There is an extended roof which gives the patio-dining set and bbq area enough shadow.

About Stella Groot

Bon bini, welcome to our Spanish style villa on Aruba!

We are the Sanchez family and we, Jorge, Stella and our daughters Lisa & Emma, love to have you as our guest. Our home is located at just 3 minutes driving from Aruba's best beaches and sleep a total of 6 people.

We have been living on Aruba for over 11 years and moved to Holland about 4 years ago. Feel free to ask us for recommendations and tips on the island.

Stella Groot purchased this villa in 2003

Why Stella Groot chose Malmok

Our villa is very cosy; the terracotta floors and the tropical garden give you a real holiday feeling. We completely refurnished the home, which means you will enjoy new beds and matrasses, a new couch, a new dining set and all new garden furniture. The home is decorated in great beach-house style, which will give you the real Aruban feeling! You will absolutely love the pool area; it's a very quiet, private space where you can lounge and jump in the pool whenever the Aruban sun gets too hot!

What makes this villa unique

* Location close to the beach (3 minutes drive)

* Private pool with outdoor shower

* Fully equipped kitchen

* Lots of French doors to open up to the outdoors, which helps you to enjoy the sunny weather even more.

* Quiet location

Private Villa in Quiet Neighborhood with Private Pool close to Arashi Beach

  • 3 of 5

Our family of four adults from the United States stayed at this villa at the end of March for one week. This was not our first visit to Aruba and we always stay at private villas whenever we travel. Stella was so nice and accommodating to our family before, during and after our stay. She left us beach towels and camping chairs to use at the beach. Darwin, her property manager, was very kind and helpful.

The villa and pool were clean upon arrival and it had everything we could possibly need to enjoy our week. Since we always use these type of reviews when choosing what villa to book in other locations, we would like share our observations to help other travelers make the right decision.

We all agreed that the photos on Home Away made some of the rooms appear larger than they actually were. The living room area off the kitchen is extremely small and we found the couch very uncomfortable when trying to watch the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament.

We must like soft beds in the U.S. because we all agreed the beds were extremely hard and the pillows were way too soft and flat,

Please note that you are given an allowance for electricity usage. We were gone all day and only ran the air conditioning in each of the bedrooms to sleep (you needed it) and we exceeded the allowance by a small amount which Stella graciously waived. We never used the air in the living room. Not sure how you could use the air in all three bedrooms and stay within the limit.

In the overview in Homeaway, it states there are two studios that are rented out. We did not see this when we booked. It is easily missed because it is at the bottom of the page under "More Details" Although the people at the studios did not interfere with our vacation, when outside at the pool in the morning enjoying our coffee, you could hear them over the wall enjoying their breakfast and conversation.

Owner's Response: Dear Gail, Thank you very much for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. Good to hear that you had a great time on Aruba and that you were satisfied with our service. We are sorry to hear that our home didn’t meet all your expectations. With the current pictures, we try to reflect the size and atmosphere of our home as closely as possible. Measurements of the rooms are mentioned at our listing. Almost all of our furniture (couch, dining set, beds, mattresses) is brand new and was purchased just a few months ago. While selecting the mattresses, we picked the ‘medium’ softness, as we know a choice of mattress is something very personal. By picking the average, we attempt to please the majority of our guests. With regard to the electricity usage, we are very flexible with our guests (as you noticed). The reason why we estimate an average electricity use per day (which is done by most private villa’s on the island and which is mentioned in our listing) is that we would like to make our guests aware that we care for the environment. We want to avoid airconditionings from running all day when guests are not at home and this way we can maintain our rental rates affordable as well. We currently installed electricity-saving airconditionings in the bedrooms, which will even reduce the electricity use of our future guests. The studios next to our home are completely separated from the house and have its’ own entrance, without any access to the home or pool area. Like you experienced, we never had any interference with guests (it’s just like having neighbors). We would like to thank you once again for staying with us and if you are planning a next trip to Aruba in the future, we will be happy to welcome you! Warm regards, Stella

Awesome Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week in this modern and cozy villa.

The villa was amazing, with all the comforts of home, well equipped kitchen and rooms, spacious nice-clean bathrooms. The pool area was just perfect for us.

Located in very quiet and upscale neighborhood, quick access to main road.

Oh, and we had enough parking space for our two cars.

We visited a couple beaches, but Arashi beach was our favorite, which is just minutes away. We could go early in the morning to reserve a spot and come back home for breakfast.

Darwin the manager and Stella the owner were very helpful and knowledgeable of the area and gave us good tips.

Highly recommend this villa to anyone planning to have a great family/friends time in Aruba!!

This comfortable villa is located away from the high rise hotels in a very quiet neighborhood. A short driving distance to Arashi and other northern beaches made it very convenient to come and go for shorter beach visits. It is very well kept up and the property manager was very accommodating. With no tall buildings to the east, the wind was not blocked, so expect to hang on to your plastic drink cups around the inviting pool.
