Located on the beautiful leeward coast of Aruba, Palm Beach Paradise is your private home at the end of a private road within walking distance of Palm Beach, and only minutes from 5 more amazing beaches, including the world-famous Eagle Beach.

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. Why pay for more space than you need! The guest suite is only available to guests who rent the house and can be added later if your travel group grows.

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.

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.

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 Aruba

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 hotspot 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 owner

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!!

Paradise in Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Our group had the pleasure of finishing our trip at Mike's Palm Beach rental. The first half of our trip was spent in the High Rise area, being typical tourists, so this highlighted our Aruba experience. The location of the house is perfect...close to the High Rise area but just far enough away to get a true feel for the island. Literally minutes away from shopping, restaurants, beaches, night-life, late-night food trucks, ATMs, and super markets. The neighbors are really helpful as well and will answer any questions you may have about the area. Secondly, the property is amazing. I must say, the pictures are very accurate and do a great job of giving an initial perspective on the rental. Unfortunately, the pictures do not do the rental justice. The property was very clean, SPACIOUS, and for lack of better words...comfortable. From sitting on the patio, listening to music while enjoying the pool; to cooking dinner and watching a movie, amazing living conditions made enjoying Aruba that much better. We also received a GREAT deal on our rental car by giving Mike's name. No other rental car company could get close to matching the prices we received. Lastly, Mike was an email away from answering any questions we had. He was very responsive and replied immediately. All in all, a great place to stay and look forward to renting again soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks Derek for the generous and thoughtful review. We really appreciate you taking the time to explain in such detail for the benefit of potential guests and travelers. We love it there too and are very grateful to be able to share our home away from home with others. It makes for a great Caribbean vacation. Please accept two hundred dollars off any future 7 night stay at any of our properties. We love and value return guests... because we get a LOT of them. Thanks again and happy travels!

Great house and vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The vacation home and Michael were great. The house is close to Palm Beach and the resorts. We were 6 females on a girls vacation. Our ages ranged from 45 to 6o+ so we did rent a van for the week to explore the island.

The house was perfect for us. The living area and kitchen areas were very spacious, but we spent most of our time on the great patio and pool at night.

A beautiful home with fantastic backyard and pool

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at mikes home this past January for 10 nights. We were one of 4 couples and rented out the upstairs apartment. There was plenty of room for all of us. The home is just like the website pictures. Everything you need is there for you. Just loved spending our time outside on the patio overlooking the beautiful pool. We had a few minor issues and mike responding within the first hour of emailing him and had the issues quickly resolved. This was our second time renting from mike and one of the reason was because he is so great to work with during your rental experience and the other reason is because his homes are so nice. All the stores and beaches are so close by. A mere 5 minutes by car and your there. Thanks mike for letting us rent again from you and hoping to rent again next winter. Jamie ohara

Owner's Response: We were so glad to have you back and very happy you and all of your friends had such a wonderful time. The optional guest suite you referred to (the apartment) is great additional space for parties of 6 or more. It's only accessible from inside the house and is only available to guests who rent the house - it does not get rented separately... just an FYI to future guests. The location is great, as you mentioned, and very private when you're hanging out in the back yard and around the pool. We hope you plan to come back again soon. One Happy Island always has a beach chair waiting for you. Happy Travels! Mike and Kim GreatArubaVacationHomes.com

Impressive!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at one of Mike's condo and extended our trip for an extra day and had the opportunity to stay at Mike’s house at Palm Beach Paradise for one night. Michael arranged for someone to meet us at the condo and show us to the house. The house is BIG. We spent our afternoon poolside and the backyard is huge. The house has all the amenities described in the listing. We only wish we had more time to enjoy the house and the pool table. We’d love to rent this house next year with family and friends.

Overall, Michael is very responsive and made the entire booking experience easy. I highly recommend renting from him.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was huge.... With an absolutely spectacular patio area with two gas grills, a large picnic table, a well maintained swimming pool, and a patio table and furniture so plenty of seating for our whole group to visit! The beds were comfy. The kitchen was well equipped. The owner even has a cell phone there for use... Was nice to have the beach chairs to throw in the car to go to the beach for the day. Both Palm Beach and Eagle Beach was close by and both are amazing. Can walk to Palm Beach, to many restaurants and bars, and shops. There's a huge grocery store not even a mile away. All in all we had a great experience in the home and a wonderful extended family vacation! Aruba is definitely One Happy Island!
