Located just outside the popular hotel district, you are within walking distance of shopping, dining, casinos, movie theaters and so much more. And you are only minutes away from golf, every imaginable water sport and downtown Oranjestad.

Your Caribbean home is over 3000 square feet and decorated in contemporary Aruban style. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and even has an OPTIONAL second story guest suite (for larger families/groups) that features a queen bed, queen airbed, kitchenette, living/tv area, full bath and balcony. You only need to pay for the space that your family or group size calls for. And the guest suite is only available to guests who rent the house. so you can always add it later if you’re not sure whether you will need it or not.

The home features a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops & travertine marble floors, dining inside and outside, cable TV & high-speed internet/wifi, 45' covered pool-side patio, large gazebo, barbecue, outside shower, a big, beautiful pool with a walk-in staircase, a swim up bar, Jacuzzi jets and a sheer waterfall, all surrounded by coconut palms, native cactus and beautiful flora.

The area is very safe and very private... You'll never forget it, Guaranteed

Unlike the crowded hotels, our home gives you both the seclusion & privacy of a Caribbean home and the convenience of a great location. The large, beautiful pool and waterfall will be for your exclusive use and enjoyment. We have the only home in the neighborhood with a swim-up pool bar and waterfall, and the only home with a pool table. The pool also has 15' of bench seating with jets and a dynamic lighting system that changes the water's color on demand.

With both inside and outside dining/eating space, lounging/living space, cooking and bar space and even an outside shower, we give you an Aruban experience like no other home in Aruba. And it's the perfect location to experience Aruba's terrific weather and famous breezes, both day and night.

A tourism study recently determined that Aruba no longer has a “low-season.” As the most revisited island in the Caribbean, that is no surprise. Since Aruba is outside the reach of hurricanes, you can enjoy blue skies and comfortable breezes with 85 degree temps all year long. Although we love going in September and October, there's really no bad time of year to visit Aruba!

It will turn an otherwise great vacation into an amazing one. We guarantee it. Only our guests can experience the island in all its majesty and can see and experience many things they would have otherwise missed. You will not get this from any other vacation rental in Aruba.

Every travel website, hotel and tourism guide is going to promote the same ten or twelve tourist attractions that make Aruba famous, like Baby Beach, the Divi-Divi Trees, the Natural Bridge and the Natural Pool. If you've never seen them then maybe you should, but there's more... so much more. And you need not miss the ordinary to experience the extraordinary!

About Michael

We have been in real estate and developing and managing vacation rentals for over 10 years. We have rental properties in 3 states and the Caribbean. There's nothing better than working with people who are doing what we all want to be doing, planning their next vacation.

We love the work because nothing brings more joy to a family than vacationing together.

Michael purchased this house in 2008

Why Michael chose Palm Beach

Far outside the hurricane belt, Aruba is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. With its daily temperatures averaging 88 degrees, its coral blue seas, royal blue skies, and famous breezes it is no wonder that Aruba is the most revisited island in the Caribbean. And it's a hot-spot for North American vacationers, which is why we invested in in Aruba. Our guests are our neighbors... from all 50 states and Canada.

Our home is unique in that it offers the most amenities of any property within walking distance to Palm Beach, Aruba. It is on a dead-end street with only one neighbor on one side, so it is very private. There is a beautiful green area behind it and on the right side. The pool and patio area is large enough to host a wedding, but intimate enough for a small family. It features a 45' covered patio that overlooks the entire pool and gardens.

The 300 sq ft gazebo has a bbq and picnic table and overlooks the pool and waterfall.

There is a private outside shower and pool house, from where you can control the jacuzzi jets in the pool and the color of the lights in the water at night. There are more than a dozen colors and two dozen color schemes, from 'Independence Day' to 'Cinco de Mayo.'

We offer beach chairs, a cooler for the beach, and noodles so you can float around the Caribbean!

There's nothing like it around, and as you can see from our reviews, you won't regret it!

What makes this house unique

Unlike other area homes, we offer an optional guest suite, which includes a queen-size bed, full bath, living area, kitchenette and balcony.

The additional space is only accessible from inside the house and is only available to guests who rent the property. It is NOT rented out separately to other parties. It is recommended for use when your party includes 7 or more people. It's great for friends, other family members, adult children, the in-laws and the outlaws.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Michael,

I wanted to send this review to you to post on the beautiful home you rented to us in Aruba in May.

I can not say enough about the experience! We were traveling to Aruba for my sisters wedding at the Marriott and I was bringing 4 children so I wanted to rent a home with all of the conveniences of home. Well I definitely scored with this home!! We had everything we could have needed in a really nice home! The kitchen was amazing, the bathrooms were huge and the showers were to die for! In fact, I have now begged my husband to change our master bath (at home) to replicate the one in your Aruba home.

Upon arrival the house was meticulous. All the information (on activities and shopping and grocery stores) were great.

The pool crew stopped by twice and were so quiet I almost didn't know they were there! The patio and pool were perfect!!! My youngest son lived in the pool most of the week and the patio hosted some beers and late night card games with the guys.

Mike and Kim were amazing with helping us with info before arrival with the local hospital, as I have a medical issue. They also recommended hair salons for wedding day hair and we went through the car rental company (they recommended) Royal, and got a great deal on a van for the week!

I can not thank you all enough for making our trip for my sisters wedding more than perfect! We will see you again soon and look forward to more family vacations at Palm Beach!!

A great first vacation in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to the thought and care Mike has put into this Villa and his years of exploring, documenting and recommending places to visit, we had a fabulous week on Aruba. The Villa was great. Superb clean accommodation. Wonderful, relaxed, private and quiet outdoor space, inviting pool and all within minutes of numerous beaches, restaurants and activity.

We relied on many of the restaurant recommendations and were never disappointed. The watersports were also simply superb, great service and teaching and well priced.

Highly recommend this lovely Villa and appreciate the care Mike has taken to make it a special spot for a great vacation

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting a home in Aruba with Mike and Kim. Their Palm Beach Paradise property is aptly named. It has all the amenities that anyone could ask. Beautiful pool, patio, gazebo and BBQ for entertaining or relaxing after a day at the beach. The home is in a great location; less than a 10 minute walk to the Palm Beach!

The home is clean and well-maintained. Mike was always quick to respond to our emails for any questions or concerns we had.

Can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Aruba and our first time renting a house. We will definitely do it again with the A+ experience we had with Mike and Kim. From the beginning of March until the moment we got home in August Mike was very helpful. He answered my emails the same day I sent them, he sent us great recommendations for car rentals, restaurants and ATV rentals, and was very informative about the island in general. The house was everything the pictures showed and more. The house was very clean and well taken care of, all you need to do is move in for the week with groceries. Kitchen was stocked full with pots, pans, towels, oven mitts...etc., all the bathrooms were clean and stocked with towels, all the bedrooms had fresh sheets, pillows and blankets....the only thing missing was a mint on your pillow. The backyard/pool area was fantastic!!! It had a lot of seating, two small gas grills, a shower outside by the pool, plus an entrance to a bathroom from the pool area. The temperature in the pool was always refreshing, never to hot or cold. We did go to the beaches, because it's Aruba, but would have been very content with staying in the backyard in the pool. I would highly recommend this property to friends and family. Definitely follow all of Mike's recommendations and you will have a great time in Aruba!! Can't wait to go back!!

Home away from Home in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second trip to this property in the last 3 years. Wonderful home, extremely comfortable and conveniently located. Perfect for a family that likes a safe, clean, quiet, relaxing "base camp" for their day time adventures in Aruba! Backyard pool is great relaxation spot after a full day of fun!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for visiting again and for writing your second 5-star review in 3 years! The average vacation home gets less than 5% return guests. Our Aruba property sees more than 50% of our guests return within 2 years. That is unheard of. And while Aruba is the most revisited island in the Caribbean, we are very proud of the guest return rate on this property and all of our Aruba properties. It's especially pleasing that so many people really enjoy Palm Beach Paradise so much. We do too! Everyone loves the space, the pool, the 45' covered patio, the convenient location to 5 great beaches, plus everything else there is to do in Aruba. So we really hope you can make the three-timers club and will come back again soon. Thank you and Happy Travels! Mike and Kim Great Aruba Vacation Homes. com

Wish we could give it 6 stars

  • 5 of 5

Our family w/three kids (19, 17, 7) just finished up a week at the Palm Beach house. I'd say this house is about as good as you can find - it's in a great location, tucked away in a neighborhood so you feel like you're living on the island, but very close to the beaches and everything else you came to see. The house itself is very clean and comfortable, and the pool and patio area are phenomenal. The pictures don't (and can't) really do it justice. Everyone preferred hanging out by the pool and we seriously could have spent the week doing just that. It's not easy finding something that kids (and adults) of all different ages like but this house, and Aruba, really did that. A last word - Mike was extremely easy to work with and very responsive to any questions. We look forward to heading back to Aruba and renting from him again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing our home in Aruba. We love it there... the location, the pool, the turquoise-blue water of the Caribbean, the sunsets... all if it and there's too much to list! We can't wait to go back ourselves and we hope you can make it back soon. We very much appreciate you sharing your experience with others and thank you for the kind words. Hope you can make it back to Aruba, One Happy Island soon. We would like to offer you $200 off your next stay at any of our properties in Aruba. Please also extend this offer to any family and friends. Thanks and Happy Travels! Mike and Kim
