The inside dining area seats six but will accommodate eight if a couple of friends stop by. The kitchen is set up for cooking when you want to eat in. You will find it outfitted nicely for whatever culinary delight you want to whip up.
The villa is in an exclusive, quiet and friendly neighborhood, perfect for a morning run or an evening walk to the salina to catch the sunset. Our tropical escape is in the north of Aruba, near the golf course Tierra del Sol. The high-rise hotels with shops, restaurants, cinema, bowling alley and casinos are only a five minutes drive.
Drive 3-4 minutes and relax on the beaches of Malmok or Arashi (great for snorkeling). There thatched huts on the beach for your use without charge, and we supply beach chairs and towels. Or drive 2-3 minutes in the other direction and hike the backside of the island up to the Alto Vista Chapel. No matter what you decide to do, you can always retreat to your own villa in paradise.
The California lighthouse with its breath taking views is less than a 5 minute drive away, as are the dunes and secluded beaches dotted with boulders for a relaxing, quiet getaway. Within minutes you can be at beautiful Palm Beach and the Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino, the largest casino in Aruba and open 24 hours a day. Close by are the other Palm Beach Hotels and low-rise hotels at Eagle Beach. Within a minute or two you can be at Tierra del Sol, the award-winning Robert Trent Jones designed desert golf course, with its fine restaurants and clubhouse.
The property has a variety of native tropical plants, and palm trees throughout. A large covered carport within the fenced property provides secure parking for up to 2 cars.

We have stayed in several home throughout the Caribbean and this is one of the best houses we stayed in. Grill worked great and the kitchen was fully stocked. The ice maker is a champ and never ran out of ice..lol. The house is located in a great spot. Elisa the house manager was fantastic and very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. Alot of the pictures are when the plantings were quite young, so it was a nice surprise to arrive and it feel as though the house was it's own tropical oasis. If we are every back in Aruba, we would surely stay there again.
Our stay at this villa was actually flawless. The property is beautiful inside and out and Matthew and his staff were always available and ready to help. My only criticism would be that the outdoor photos on the website did not do it justice. The property was even more beautiful than I expected.
Great relaxing getaway
We loved our stay on Esmeralda. The home is beautifully landscaped and well appointed. The master bedroom has ample room. The two other bedrooms are a bit small but only use them for sleeping so not a huge issue although the third bedroom only has double bed very small for two adults. We would recommend this home to anyone who wants to visit the island and not be in the middle of high rises every day but easily accessible from this wonderful home!
Everything your need for a perfect stay in Aruba
Very secure, convenient and clean place to stay with all you need to spend a good time on vacation. The house is very well equipped. We would not have asked for more and it met our expectations on all aspects.
My husband and I just spent 8 nights at this home. It was perfect. It's a 4-10 minute drive to any popular location, but a very quiet neighborhood. The house was exactly as shown on the websites. Very clean, well-stocked with all linens and dishes, etc. The private pool was our favorite part of the trip. Totally privacy, nice grill for an easy lunch, and clean patio with full sun all day. I would highly recommend this house for couples, a small group, or a family. It was a lovely experience!
Couldn't have asked for anything else
This villa in Esmeralda is so well furnished, so clean and neat, so private, so pleasingly decorated, and so convenient to everything on the northern half of the island, that there is nothing more we could have wanted. The owners have thought of every little thing that your home away from home might need, and it's there, right where you would expect to find it. They've put together lots of very good info/advice/suggestions in the coffee table binder; flip through it on your first day there, and don't hesitate to try their recommendations. Staying at this villa, you will know you are in Aruba. Although it is fully air conditioned, we used the AC only in the bedroom at night. First thing in the morning, I would open all the windows in the house and with cross breezes, palms rustling, and sun filtering through the landscaping, the house remained very open, fresh, and comfortable (Aruba enjoys a dry climate). The pool was crystal clear on arrival, and stayed that way all week. Not heated, but a perfect temperature for early morning or late at night. Terraces & gazebo in backyard provided ample space for lounging in shade, sunning, grilling & dining. Landscaping is beautiful; so many varieties of cactus and flowering plants, several types of palms, and different rock gardens in different locations. Nearly all of these spaces are incredibly private yet feel totally open to the sun and sky. Location: The neighborhood is quiet and we felt that we, and our things, were quite secure. We were barely 5 minutes by car from the northern beaches, great for snorkeling and swimming and sunsets. We also enjoyed navigating the "back" north-south route; easy & quick runs to Palm Beach/Eagle Beach; we took that road on through Paradera and Santa Cruz to Baby Beach/Zeerover one afternoon; roads are not well marked in Aruba but still it was straightforward, and enjoyable with local scenery--many, many options for groceries, local eateries, etc. The only regret we had was having to leave when our week came to an end. A most sincere thank you to the owners, who have put a great deal of thought and consideration into making this beautiful island home so comfortable and accommodating, and peaceful. We will consider ourselves very lucky to be able to return here on a future trip. :)
