My original booking turned out to be unavailable through no fault of the owner. He was kind enough to let me know ahead of time and get me an upgrade with a friend of his who has property. I stayed at Pauline's Apartments in Noord. Stephan was a great manager and very personable. The location was about a mile away from the beach and shopping and the supermarket. The pool and grounds were beautiful! I highly recommend this property and look forward to visiting again.
Simple and adequate
My husband and I were looking for something that was simple and easy on the budget. And that was exactly what we got. Rob’s little place was a rudimentary place to rest your head while exploring all the wonderful things on the island of Aruba. Like I mentioned simple but has a comfortable bed with a bathroom. We had a few very minor concerns we told Rob at check out and he was attentive to listening so that he could better accommodate future guests. It is very basic, which may not work for some if you are more used to luxury but it worked perfect for us. I would compare it to camping in a travel trailer with running water. Our favorite thing was the host left a mini fridge full of snacks and beer. Which was very thoughtful, appreciated and useful for us. He also provided beach towels, folding chairs and beach towels, which really come in handy.
Cozy and comfortable - perfect for Aruba!
The wife and I stayed at Robs studio May 6th through May 10th. The pictures were spot on so everything was as advertised, no surprises! It is a small space, yes, but I’d say cozy and perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. While in Aruba, we tend to spend almost all day out and about at the beaches or various restaurants and bars so honestly...why do I need a huge room that I’m never going to spend much time in?? Rob is a very nice guy who is also very accommodating and responsive! One particular afternoon, we decided to come back to the room early and take a nap (escape the Aruba sun for a bit). We had a slight bother with a maintenance guy making a lot of noise as we tried to sleep. It wasn’t anyone’s fault really, as he figured we’d be out and about away from the room so he could work on some stuff around the property. Unfortunately, we were in the room, but it was all taken care of right away! I messaged Rob on WhatsApp and he immediately contacted the gentlemen and he stopped working right away. We were able to enjoy our nap after all. Overall this was a minor thing, but it was very nice to know that Rob was available and so responsive to my request. The extra amenities such as the beach chairs, and cooler are a welcome addition if you spend time “beach hopping” like we did.
Thanks again Rob for the hospitality. It’s much appreciated!
Our Stay in Gold Coast
The home was clean with all amenities in place. The location was perfect for us. We could not have been more pleased with our experience in Aruba. This was our second time in this place and is surely will not be our last.
Great value! Easy to work with
We enjoyed our hike to the National park very much! Great value and easy to work with. Simple and clean accommodations.
Pat and Anne were sympathic guests to have . They can come back anytime !
Awesome Cozy Spot!
We stayed in the studio Feb 9th-15th. He has two studios right next to each other with a great little outdoor sitting area. The location is awesome, walking distance to the High Rise strip with many restaurants, bars, and beaches! Also bus stops close by and he has bikes you can use. The studio is small but cozy. There is everything you need from iron board, fridge, and snacks! Even bathroom supplies.
The bed was very comfortable! He was very accommodating, offered pickup and drop off from airport cheaper than a taxi. He also offers excursions cheaper than a booking company. He stocks your fridge with snacks and drinks, enough for light breakfasts and lunches.
For the price you can't beat this!!! Great way to avoid spending money on a hotel room you will barely see, because honestly, you're in Aruba!! Rob was great. If we're ever back in Aruba we will definitely stay again. Don't think anymore just book it!!
