Donna Fried, Teacher and Homeowner purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Donna Fried, Teacher and Homeowner chose Oranjestad-West
This unit has been thoroughly gutted, re-built and re-furnished in 2014/2015. Walls removed, doors added, rooms enlarged, ceilings opened, lighting added, backyard paved and closets and drawers built in to consider the needs of tenants who want only the "best" and decided to rent a home for these comforts. No expense was spared in the 12 month renovation project. Every amenity has been considered and the unit is always "a work in progress" so it is always being upgraded and improved.

All the comforts of home
We booked condo C5 for our honeymoon and couldn't be happier with our choice! Donna, Petra and their husbands even arranged for a special sweet surprise after our dinner at the Flying Fishbone - a delicious assortment of desserts!
We rented a car for the week which gave us the opportunity to explore the whole island at our leisure. Donna provides beach chairs, towels, coolers, etc, so we just packed up the car, 2 minute drive down the block to the beach there is a small grouping of palapas where we set up camp for the day at Eagle Beach, one of the best in Aruba.
The condo itself is exactly as pictured, clean, comfortable, every amenity you may need. Petra was a great help with making reservations for restaurants and activities. She was also very patient and thorough when showing us around the condo and property.
All in all, this was a perfect alternative to the hustle and bustle of a big resort and was exactly what we were looking for :-)
Great spot for a relaxing vacation
This property was perfect for my Mom, sister’s and I to enjoy a destination wedding! Very clean, well stocked and safe place!
Thank you Anne for choosing our space. We're happy we were able to make more great memories for you all in Aruba.
Location was perfect. Minor problems we encountered were addressed promptly and resolved. Donna and Petra were amazing they answered all of our questions on dining and sightseeing. Petra set up car rental and met us at the rental location so we could follow her back to the condo. Pool is steps from the door and beautiful eagle beach is a short walk down the street very quiet location was perfect. Would not hesitate to stay again. Thanks Donna and Petra for a wonderful vacation in Aruba. The Johnson family
This is our first trip to Aruba and our experience was amazing. The condo is even better than the picture show. The home owner Donna covered everything and was very responsive every time we had a question. Eagle Beach is very close but if you want to explore the island (Baby Beach, Oranjestad etc) I would suggest renting a car. Petra was great organizing our rental before our arrival. We can’t wait to come back.
A picture perfect property!
I want to start by saying that I would give this property a 6-star rating if it was possible. Donna is an amazing owner! She offers a ton of amenities and is very organized and detailed oriented. Her commitment to making our vacation a success was commendable and enhanced my vacation experience. Petra was also delightful to work with and incredibly informative.
When we arrived at the property, we were pleasantly surprised at how clean the grounds were. The pool was just steps away from the entrance to the unit, and very quiet. We literally used it as a private pool all week. Unit C-5 was immaculate and accurately depicted in the pictures! The 10 ft. ceilings made it feel open and spacious. The unit was also stocked with everything you needed to have a good time on the beach. We did not have to travel with beach towels, or toys for the kids to play in the sand.
The unit is in very close in proximity to an incredibly quiet stretch of Eagle Beach. We had an amazing vacation experience and will be returning next year.
Was absolutely as described and then some. We were treated very well by both the owner and their local concierge. Very smooth process. Not to mention how close to the beach this location was! No more all inclusive hotels; we loved the total flexibility! Thank you! We will be back
Eagle Beach is now one of the "top 5 beaches in the world" voted on Trip Advisor. With it's wide open expansion of white sand, its free palapas and feeling of complete safety, it's the best beach in Aruba.
The "low rise" area, compared to the "high rise" area in Palm Beach is desired by many as it is in the middle of the island and you can reach the most popular places by car within minutes, including major supermarkets, touristy places like Palm Beach, the malls, tons of restaurants and best of all, it never feels congested or crowded even during "high season" times.
The condo is situated a block away and while it's not "ocean front" or has an "ocean view", you are so close, you can feel the breeze on your face and in 20 seconds you are there by car, parked under a tree, a few seconds to the sand and sea.
Our condo is a special combination of private home, hotel amenities and easy access to beach and everything you need for a perfect vacation in the carribbean where everyone speaks your language.
