About Cees Koole
After a hectic entrepreneurial life, based in The Netherlands and working worldwide, we settled in 2005 at Aruba. We were embraced by the local people, their way of life and the year-round fantastic climate. We feel privileged to live here and enjoy everyday. The Aruban population consists of not less than 105 different nationalities, living peacefully next to each other, without gated communities, poor and rich join together naturally. The lack of organized crime and the warmth of the people makes this island close to paradise. Because of that and the abundance of beautiful beaches makes Aruba a number one vacation destination. We feel very welcome and a fantastic infrastructure, including a state of the art International Airport, makes it an ideal hub for business with daily non-stop connections with The America's, The Caribbean and Europe!
Why Cees Koole chose Sero Colorado
We are living at a hundred meters from the Cottage we offer for vacationers.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Sero Colorado, locally better known as The Colony was developed in 1927 and served as a compound for the refinery operated by Exxon. The colony was fully self sufficient with a hospital, an International School, supermarkets, marina, bars and restaurants. Nowadays the refinery is not in operation, however the American/Venezuelan Company Citco recently obtained a lease to start the exploitation again. It is expected that the plant will be operational at a low capacity within two years from now. Presently most of the bungalows and villa's are privately owned and more and more construction is going on to revitalize the neighborhood. The beaches are great. The famous Baby Beach is located at a shallow protected bay with plenty of fish to make snorkling a great experience. For real beach life Big Mama's bar and restaurant is open at day-time. Rodgers' Beach offers a great swim and relaxation. The stationary palapa's and trees offer shade to protect you from the always shining sun. Between those two beaches you'll find Jad's, one of the best diving schools of the island. Furthermore bar and snackbar Rum Reef, Serving refreshments and snacks during day-time. All this you'll find at walking distance from the Cottage. just outside of the Colony you will find Kamini's Kitchen, a popular restaurant, offering local dishes at affordable prices.

My family of 4, 2 kids under 4, stayed here a week. We loved our time here. The property was perfect for our needs. It is well away from the crowded tourist areas. It is very close to Rodgers beach which was all but deserted while we were there, perfect for the kids. We even found that the prices on this end of the island were cheaper than up around the tourist areas.
Cees and Ankie were great hosts and always ready if we needed something.
We even met the wild donkeys that roam the neighborhood!
