Once I found this place, all my other trips to ANY Caribbean island paled in comparison. I'm enjoying the island trade winds right now, after a delightful dip in the bay/ocean!
This has become my GO-TO destination. A residence on the water with about 10 guest units (I think) of varying sizes, it's run by the nicest people you could ask for--delightful Brits. True Island feel, cozy, homey, eclectic furnishings, with everything you need including very clean, AC, private bathrooms, kitchenettes, WiFi, washing machine available, a few resident cats and a dog, etc. All very affordable.
Nothing you don't need... like a hot-water heater. Just let it run for about 20 seconds, and the water is plenty sun-warmed from the pipes on the island! The drinking/bathing water is also excellent in Aruba. Said to be one of the best water purification systems in the Caribbean. Like all residences on Aruba, they do ask that you toss all T-paper in the little closed trash-bin. So big deal.
Close to some of the best eateries in Aruba, from the gourmet Flying Fishbone right next door, to Zee Rovers about two 'blocks' away... great local prices and the freshest just-caught fish fried up right there... and a little local bakery with the BEST donuts EVER! I only drive up to town (or the high-rises) for an occasional gamble at a casino. You'll want to rent a car for at least part of your stay.
