About Rudger Boom
A warm welcome We (Ursula and Rudger) started renting out our second home in Aruba during 2012. What started as a hobby has now become... well a much larger hobby :) We like the contact with all our guests and to make them feel very welcome on our "one happy island". We like to take care of you, while you are on vacation and we take especial pride in our houses and in our service. We will do our utmost effort to provide you with the best possible vacation experience. You will find that the villas are especially clean, one of the many priorities we have in preparing the house for your arrival. Remember if you have any questions, special requests while vacationing or if you need any recommendations, we are here to help. Just contact us, with any questions you have and we look forward meeting you on Aruba.

We loved staying at this property! It was extremely clean, the beds were comfortable, and having a property manager on site was fabulous! It is a safe neighborhood and close to all the local beaches. It also had a security system that made us feel even safer. We are already planning our next trip to Aruba! If you are on the fence, book this property! You will not be sorry!
Home is clean, bed comfortable, and neighborhood safe.
I would have given a 5 star rating had it not been for the experience on the day of our arrival. The day we arrived in Aruba they island was experiencing an extremely hot day with hardly any breeze. I had given the owner Rudger our flight info and informed him the time we expected to arrive to the house. Upon arriving we were greeted by Andrea the caretaker (who was very kind and attentive). She opened the house for us, which was HOT. We turned on all of the units to start cooling off the house while we did the check in.
Shortly after, we left the house to grab a bite to eat and we left the AC units on. Upon returning we found the house still extremely HOT. I thought the AC units were broken bc it was so hot. Shortly after, Andrea arrived and told us the owners wife, came by the house and noticed the units were on and turned them off from an outside switch.
I was furious, bc it was soo hot and I was not even given a courtesy call or reminder that the owner wants the AC units off if you leave the house for more than an hour. It took the house hours to cool down and we had no choice, but to wait for it to cool. The house rules did state the cost of electricity and water is expensive on the island. We understand that electricity is expensive and we didn’t plan on leaving the AC units on all day if we were not going to be home. But, we left for dinner and to the grocery to stop to pick up a few items. Rudger did reply and apologize and stated we could leave the AC units on if we felt it necessary. Honestly, after that day the breeze was back on the island and when we left the house we turned the AC off each time. Upon returning to the house it did seem to cool off within a reasonable time.
One morning we woke up to a very strong odor coming from the bathroom, I notified Rudger and he said it was probably the septic system. He had a truck come out right away to empty the tank and the order was gone almost immediately.
The only other comment I would make is the owner or house manual didn’t mention they offered beach chairs or ice chest for their guests to use during their stay. After renting beach chairs for a couple of days, I decided to ask if they had any available for us to use. They were able to find two chairs for us to use , which did help.
All in all, we had a great time at this rental and would rent there again. Rudger was very quick to respond to our concerns.
Villa double booked!
Was very disappointed to discover that our villa had been double booked when we arrived, even though I received multiple confirmations for our booking. We were placed in the only other villa free, but told that villa would not be available our entire stay & would be put in a hotel the last few days of our visit. It was raining when we arrived, the AC in the new villa was not working & the front door would not shut. After much back and forth conversations with the owner, we finally got put in a hotel for our entire visit (one that would fit in his budget). I’m very dissapointed on how our trip started, but we ended up having a wonderful vacation staying at the Caribbean Palm Village Resort.
First time this happened to us, but our reservation management system didn't sync correctly between sites, which has immediately been fixed. Upon arrival we upgraded you to our much larger four bedroom unit and informed you that the last 2 days of your stay we would need to place you in a beach front hotel property. As you did not want to wait an hour to have a minor A/C problem fixed and wanted to be relocated immediately we could not find an alternative vacation rental (within such a short period) through HomeAway or similar sites. We therefore booked you in one of Aruba hotels and, as you insisted on a two bedroom room (for two persons) with kitchen, we ended up spending about twice the amount you paid for the villa, which we gladly accepted as the double booking was a mistake on our end. We regret that this (and the rain) was not the most ideal start of your vacation, but we believe that the +/- two hours it took us to relocate you and which got you upgraded was not unreasonable. We are happy you were able to enjoy the rest of your stay in Aruba.
A nice quiet neighborhood
The Green Cunucu had plenty of room for the 2 of us; 4 would have been comfortable. It was spotless and modern; better than the pictures actually. The location was fine for going to the beaches, shopping and activities but you do need a car. The community pool was never crowded, usually only us. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We shopped at Superfoods but Ling and Sons was actually our favorite. We enjoyed Madame Jeanette's and Casa Tui. but we did not enjoy Pincho's as much on this trip as we had in the past. We found a delightful little place in an out of the way spot in Palm Beach next to the parking garage; Che Bar, with Happy Hour from 6-8. It's an Argentinian restaurant with a gentle friendly staff and good drinks. Had we been staying longer, we would have gone for dinner. Snorkeling was good at Boca Catalina; 15 min away, and Baby Beach is a 45 min drive but worth it for the beauty of the area. We did an ATV tour which was action packed and interesting. The dinner cruise with Red Sail was beautiful and the food was good. The trip from the airport to the house is about 15 min. We used Yescarental and would use them again. Check in and check out went smoothly. The beds were better than the high end hotel beds in our opinion; it was hard to get up. We had coffee on the back porch every day and appreciated the clothesline. We never had concerns while we were there but if we had, the answers were a phone call away; the staff is right there on site. It looks like Rudger's properties all have similar decorative lizards by the door. We liked it so much, we bought one for home. We highly recommend the Green Cunuco.
One word: Incredible !
The house was super clean and a convenient drive to everything! We all loved the modern design of the decor and furnishings as well!! It felt super beach! They were very professional and always had someone available if we had questions about anything. We felt like we had a private pool because we always had it to ourselves! This was a great place to spend Christmas and we definitely plan on returning! Aruba is a very happy place!
Beautiful & Excellent Service
We truly enjoyed our beautiful Cunucu Villa while we were in Aruba! Rudger is the best! He answered all of my questions/concerns leading up to our visit. The emailed booklet provided to us was very helpful in helping us make decisions of where to eat, where to go and what to see. Once we arrived, the villa was as pictured and Tommy was most outstanding! The villa is just a short drive from places to eat and the pristine beaches. Very quiet neighborhood!!! We are looking forward to returning within a year or so since I injured my foot at the beach and wasn't able to finish all of the tourist attractions. Thank you for making us feel at home!
