About Jose and Rixt
We are Jose and Rixt and little Denisa, living in Aruba for many years. Rixt, originally from The Netherlands works at the office and Jose, born in Venezuela will be your host during your stay in Aruba. We love to be active, play tennis, cycle, enjoy the beach and spend time with our daughter. We speak Dutch, Spanish, English and Papiamento. Our company is called Casa Mia NV and we have 15 villas for rent in total (including our own studio). We are Superhost on Airbnb and Homeaway and will do our very best to make sure our guests have a great time in our villas and in Aruba. If you have questions do not hesitate to e-mail us at email@example.com and we will be happy to assist you!
Why Jose and Rixt chose Malmok
Located close and with easy access to our famous Eagle, Palm and Arashi beaches, restaurants and golfing. Our Villa offers discriminating vacationers a different style of vacation in an upscale and exclusive neighborhood. Free from the noise and often crowded facilities of the resorts, our villa offers great value that rivals the expense of staying at a resort or Hotel. You will have the best of both worlds being able to enjoy all the same beaches, activities and fun all the hotels have to offer, but with the added benefit of your own private villa.
What makes this Villa unique
Our biggest plus is the service we provide. We are Superhost at Airbnb and Homeaway and we work hard to keep it that way. You can call or email us anytime if you need our help or assistance. Another unique benefit is we guarantee you a super clean villa and can provide extra cleaning during your stay. All our Villas are very well maintained and well equipped.

Aruba home is a real vacation
This property is just as it appears on the site. We arrived to a clean, comfortable home. The check in process explained everything we needed to know about the electricity and water as well as the security system and a full tour of the house and grounds. The power went off shortly after we arrived (1/2 the island was out for a bit), so we sent an email to Jose and Rixt and they responded quickly! By the time we arrived back from dinner, the power was on! Anything we needed, further instructions on the stove operation, making local phone calls, etc., our questions were quickly answered either via email or someone came over to check that things were working correctly! Each time it was user error --different country does things a bit differently. But they were kind and eager to help.
The house itself is comfortable and provides enough space. The kitchen is well supplied with pots and pans, dishes etc. It could use a few more glasses for outside use. The ones provided are mostly glass so you may want to think of bringing a YETI or something similar to use at the beach or around the pool. The outdoor area is simply the best as far as scenery and comfort! We spent more time on the back patio than we did inside the house! The nice breeze and private swimming pool are heaven! The beach is very close and we were able to access it easily and enjoy the beautiful waters of the Caribbean. Shopping is very close by as well as many restaurants. The manual provided to us was a useful tool. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. It is not only convenient, but extremely secure. You feel safe in the surrounding area as well. It's a nice area of the island. This house and its set up truly made for a wonderful vacation!
Thank you soooooo much Linda for your superb words! Feel welcome to stay with us anytime again. Take care and warm wishes from The Marin Family
Perfect, in every way!
From the time I found this property online up until the day we checked out, everything was on point.
First, Jose and Rixt answered every question I posed. No matter how small, big, dumb or irrelevant, they answered swiftly and accurately and professionally.
Second, check-in / check-out process was smooth. We arrived and were met with professional, friendly attitudes and faces. They explained everything in detail about the property as well as the surrounding area.
Third, the property itself is exactly as pictured. We had 9 people comprised of 4 couples and one solo guest. The way the house is laid out gave us all our own personal space. When it came time to convene as a group for breakfast and dinner there was ample space.
Electricity and water - There is a weekly allowance for both. If you go over, there is a fee per usage. There is no need to worry, but you do need to be mindful of waste. Each bedroom has its own AC unit, so turn each one off once you leave for the day. Don't turn them back on until you're ready for bed. It literally takes less than 5 mins to cool the bedroom down. Be mindful of your shower time and hot water usage.
Remember to turn off the outdoor ceiling fans when you leave for the day. If you don't plan on night swimming, then don't turn on the pool lights. Laundry wise, we hung all of our beach towels on the clothes line. We only washed necessities like underwear and used the dryer for those. Again, just be conscious of your energy and water usage.
Lastly, and unrelated to the property, since we had such a large group, we ended up cooking our own breakfast every morning. The stove is easy to figure out, but the oven is tricky. Google is your friend for temp conversion and help figuring out the symbols.
For dinner one night I hired Chef Ilja (Chefs Aruba on Facebook) and he served us a 6-Course Dinner Party in the comfort of the house. It cost less to hire him than it would have cost nine of us to go out and eat - and to be honest, we couldn't have gotten a better meal in any restaurant around there. No kidding, the 6-course dinner was so damn good that before he cleaned up and left, we booked him again for two nights later to do his Gourmet Barbecue.
We've already discussed that wen we go back to Aruba there are two things that we must do:
1 - Stay at Opal 9 or another Casa Mia property
2 - Hire Chefs Aruba for the best culinary experience ever
Thank you again to Jose and Rixt!!
What a great review and what a great words from great guests themselves! So nice to read you enjoyed it all. Needless to say that you are welcome ANYTIME back to spend your holidays with us in Aruba! Warm wishes The Marin Family
The property is as it was listed. The property owners were very responsive to questions. The property is exactly as pictured. They thought of all of your needs and wants. Having the beach chairs and coolers were very helpful. The kids. Loved the pool toys and floats. We enjoyed our stay at Opal 9.
Thank You Kelli for staying with us and it is so great to hear you enjoyed your villa! Welcome anytime back! The Marin Family
Perfect for any situation
We use the rental to stay approximately 8 days to celebrate my 50th birthday. There were 5 of us and we each had our own space and room. The property would be perfect for a family or adults.
Thank you for your stay with us Robin, and for taking the time to give us a great review. Hope you will return!
Rixt and Jose
Clean, open and inviting, my family and I enjoyed the comfortable home. Plenty of seating to relax, play board games and just loll in the sun.
Appreciate the manual about the home, places to visit, local restaurants, and availability of car and other rentals. Management was most gracious, and response to our calls was always timely. Thank you for a great vacation!
What a great review Annette! Thank you for staying with us. It was a please meeting you and your family!
Best wishes Jose
Spacious lovely home
Our stay in Noord was lovely. The home was spacious and private. We felt safe and comfortable. The beaches just minutes away. The local little Asian market is about a block away and has just about everything you could need. The weather was great, super windy and very sunny. Would definitely recommend this home to families especially if you have children. The kids loved the pool and the hubby loved the barbecue. We enjoyed playing chess and completing a jigsaw puzzle in the evenings. Had a great time.
Thank you very much for this very nice review Josephine, we are happy you had a great time in Aruba! Thank you for choosing a Casa Mia Property and we hope you will return!

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!
