About Julie

We are a canadian family who fall in love with this fabulous island and decide to invest because we would like to be there more often as we can. Our son learned to do kitesurfing in Aruba and that's the place he likes the most for the winds and for the absence of sharks too! Because there is no sharks or jellyfish in Aruba!! The people on the island is really friendly and it's a place where we felt secure, we have a great neighborhood, access to all comfort you can imagine.

Julie purchased this villa in 2009

Wonderful & Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (3 Adults and 3 Kids) had a truly wonderful time at the Villa. Julie was in constant contact with us right from when we showed our interest in the Villa till we arrived. Laurence the property manager met us at the airport, gave us tips on touring Aruba and took us to the Villa.

The Villa is a beautiful home in a quiet residential area. It was always lovely to come back to after leaving the busy touristic areas. We all had so much fun in the swimming pool at the Villa. The Villa has a fully functional kitchen which made it so much better because we could cook meals easily. There are loads of supermarkets nearby and one can walk to the closest one. A car is needed to move around. There is wifi so you can still keep in touch with the outside world if you choose to.

The Villa was as described and more. It was very clean and it felt just like home to us. We definitely recommend staying at this Villa when in Aruba.

We had a wonderful time and want to say a big thank you to Julie and Laurence for making our first trip to Aruba a great one

Thank you and see you next time.

Great private setting

  • 5 of 5

The property looks exactly like the pictures. The place is kept up well, backyard pool area very private and relaxing. The kitchen has everything needed for any meal. Carefull finding side street to villa, the first nite had major problems. The owners were very helpful and talked me to the street. I thank them greatly for providing a great place to base my vacation. I am already looking to book my next stay there. Thanks again Julie you are doing a great job with your villa. Steve J.

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve for your comments, I try to do my best for supporting your vacation and make a great experience that you would like to repeat! It wasn't easy on the phone to explain the right way when you lost your way home the first night...Aruba should have street names it would help people to recognize the place but it's an island and they are thinking that everybodys knows the place...after that, I am sure you could go anywhere and find your way ! Hope to see you back in Aruba for your next vacation :) Julie B

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

The house was not what I expected, it was far more better. As soon as we landed the house manager met us at the airport so we could follow him to the house. He is a very nice guy who helped us with almost everything.We stayed there for the week with family. The house was very clean ,has every utility needed. there is also free wi-fi. The neighborhood is very quiet and you have lots of privacy.There is a grocery store 3 min walking distance. The pool was great.

We are already planning to come back for our 5th anniversary.

Another beautiful trip to Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

Julie the owner and Laurence the property manager were wonderful to do business with. The property is very nice, very secure, and close to the beach. The 99 Bar close by was a fun stop every night on the way home. I wish there were TVs in the bedrooms but we made do with the WIFI and our tablets. Communication with Julie and Laurence couldn't have been better! I would definitely rent this home again! Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The description of the listing was just as described and the property was clean and well maintained. Any and everything you needed as far as cook wear, utensils, coffee maker, cake pan, plastic food storage for leftovers you name it, it was available. Laurence, the house manager was wonderful. He met us onsite at the car rental company and took us directly to the house which wasn’t far at all. He was just a phone call away and very tentative. A cell phone was available to use at the house (you can go to any store and purchases a digicell card with however many minutes you may need) which was a plus. The private pool was also a plus as we like to work out on a daily basis and since we didn’t have a gym to go to we did water aerobics. Beach accessories such as chairs, snorkeling equipment and a cooler were also available for us to use which came in handy. Don’t get hustled at the beach. We were charged $15/person to sit under a hut but come to find out it was actually free. I would definitely recommend this property however just note that the one bedroom that does not have AC can get kind of warm but there was a fan available that we used in the room. Overall I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Julie, the owner, was wonderful to work with. She answered all my questions/emails in a timely manner. Aruba is said to be the happy island and it in fact lives up to its name. Everyone was super friendly and never hesitated to assist you. I would recommend getting a rental car and visiting a lot of the attractions yourself. Many sites are free and you can save a lot of money this way. However I would recommend doing an ATV tour. Also go to the Caribbean festival that they have every Thursday it is about a 20 minute drive from the house but well worth it. I never once felt afraid in Aruba and we were out after midnight sometimes. If you are contemplating coming to Aruba go ahead and book your trip you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much girls for your comments, hope to see you again and yes Aruba is really a safety place because I use to go alone and I never felt afraid everywhere I go ! That's why we choose this island. All the beaches are public even if you are in front of an hotel, you could bring your beach chairs and enjoy the sun. Julie
