We picked this villa because it was close to another villa that we rented through another company. It was our wedding and we wanted friends and family to stay close by. Unfortunately, this company decided to charge $200 extra for electricity and water charges for a 5 night stay. My friends that stayed in the villa were only there when it was time to go to sleep. We were told that if the AC units were on only when people went to sleep, it would not be a problem. One of the rooms is accessed through the garage and it was very musty with no air circulation! There must be mold or too much moisture - quite unhealthy. The person staying in this room still kept the AC unit off during the day since he was hanging out with us throughout the day in another villa. I think this company gives a very low allocation for water and electricity so that they can overcharge you once you leave! The villa was not a bad villa, but I am not sure why we had to pay $200 extra when my friends and family that stayed in another villa similar to this one and used the AC units throughout the day, only spent $50 extra at the end of their 5 night stay. I will not recommend working with Aruba Happy Rentals.
Opal Villa is such a pleasant find! I researched extensively and picked it for my first visit to Aruba.
I emailed several rental companies inquiring about different properties. Geraldine from Aruba Happy Rentals has been the most helpful. She was always prompt and detailed with her responses, which helped me decide on this villa, and using their company. She always replied to my emails within 24 hours and even on weekends! Geraldine also kept in touch with us during our stay and made sure our requests were taken care of. The warm welcome from Albert and his colleague, the friendly communication with Gemma, and the efficient checkout with Rosie and Alex also made the stay very enjoyable.
Opal Villa was perfectly located in a quiet, upscale neighbourhood, just minutes from the beaches, restaurants, shopping, supermarkets and casinos. The pool was wonderful and the patio gorgeous. The pool was cleaned twice a week. We spent a lot of time chilling there.
The BBQ was very useful. We drove to Zeerover's in Savaneta to buy fresh fish and prawns, and grilled them for dinner. We also made most of our breakfasts in the well equipped kitchen of the villa. The one complaint was that all the pots and pans were old, scratched up Tefal with the coating coming off. I requested for a stainless steel pot and a frying pan , and the next day, a brand new set was delivered to us. Kudos to their customer service!
The house was beautiful, spacious and was very clean. The location was superb! The neighbourhood was tranquil and quiet, yet we could drive to the restaurants and casinos in less than 5 minutes. It was just 2 minutes' drive to Hadicurari Beach where we tried Stand Up Paddling. Also a couple minutes to Malmok Beach where the snorkeling was great. Arashi, Palm and Eagle Beaches were also very near.
The area was very safe .The garage was very helpful, as we could park our rental car which had the distinct V licence plate inside the garage, so nobody could tell tourists were renting this villa.
One problem with this house is that out of the 4 bathrooms, 3 of them have windows with no window coverings. That makes it very inconvenient for showering and using the toilets, especially when 2 of the bathrooms with no window coverings face the front road.
Overall, I am very happy with Opal Villa, especially its location. I am also very satisfied with Aruba Happy Rentals and definitely would use them again.
I read that in the Middle Ages, opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck. Our vacation rental Opal Village definitely lived up to her name. From the moment we stepped into the house, we knew our choice of rentals was going to make our vacation a great one. We had no problem in settling right in. Her rooms were all spacious and had a friendly appeal. The layout of the home was designed for family bonding but it also had plenty of space that one could unwind and relax for some “me” time. The house was equipped with all the necessities to pamper from luxurious towels, to the modern and well equipped home furnishings. The patio and pool area definitely made us believe, life couldn’t get better than this.
Gemma, our travel agent was extremely efficient. Before our arrival, she quickly returned e-mails, answered questions promptly and arranged our car rental. On our day of arrival, she greeted us with a warm welcome and gave us a tour of the home. She emphasized over and over to call her if we needed anything during our stay. We didn’t have to call her at all.
It was a dream home and a dream vacation. Aruba’s got it all! The family all agreed – we need to do it again – really soon!
Hello, We just stayed at your beautiful home in Aruba. Loved it. Breezy and cool. Great location for us as we love Catalina and Arashi beaches.
Gemma was extremely helpful in eveyway and professional. We hope to come back this fall and am hoping this house will be available. My children could not come down this time with us and I would love for them to enjoy this house too!
The sunsets from the house are fantastic!
1. Deberian colocar cortinas en las duchas de los baños
2. Faltan luces en la parte de la piscina ya que las mismas no encendian
3. La bomba de la piscina estuvo todo el tiempo encendida a pesar que fue reportada nadie la reparo
4.La ducha del baño del cuarto principal solo permitia agua caliente no habia agua fria
5. A pesar que controlamos el consumo de electricidad manteniendo apagados los aires acondicionados y las luces, se pago un excedente con el cual no estamos de acuerdo. Creo que debe ser mas transparente este cobro.
6. Deberia colocar ollas mas grandes para cocinar
Wij hebben met 5 personen genoten van een heerlijke week in deze luxe opal-villa. De villa was schoon bij aankomst, de masterbedroom erg mooi en een goed bed. Het was warm maar dankzij de wind buiten en de airco goed te doen. Het meest hebben wij gebruik gemaakt van het zwembad en alle zitjes buiten. De geweldige bbq is heel vaak aangeweest dankzij het heerlijke bbq-vlees verkrijgbaar bij superfood. Een auto is wel aan te raden, maar wij zijn ook een paar keer gewandeld naar palm beach.
