“Fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed 3 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We spent the week upstairs in the Penthouse. Sunset from the balcony every night! Breakfast every morning with an ocean view! VERY clean from top to bottom! Everything you need in the kitchen and then some. The pool was crystal clear and quite refreshing. So was the outdoor shower! Plenty of towels and linens and the washer/dryer is a nice touch, pack your own baggy of soap.
True local neighborhood and island feel. Mangel Halto beach is just down the hill, 8 minutes! Local Aruba beach that has plenty of space and lots of snorkeling area. AMAZING water colors!! Easy access to the National Park and the South side.
Kris is very welcoming and has lots of good tips on what is where on the island.
Book with confidence, just not when we want to go back!
Flying Fishbones restaurant, 10 minutes away, is a MUST DO. You can sit at a table in the sand with your feet in the water at sunset if you plan it right! GUYS, HUGE HINT HERE!!!
Only 15 minutes to the airport and 30 to the restaurants in the hotel/tourist area.
Jays car rental is the best. Very good service and fair prices.

“Xmas and New Year vacation with my family”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I have spent 2 weeks in aruba with a family of 12 (wife, sons, mother, sisters, nephews), I rent one of the apartment and my sister the other one in the house. We spent excellent vacations in the properties, everything was in excellent condition, Kris the owner, was a perfect host, giving support to everything is required in the property and area.

the place is perfect, because he has 3 apartments in one area and we stayed in 2 different of them, we share a lot of moment in the property and when we need to alone, you can go to your rent apartment and relax without interruption.

I highly recommend the place to stay

the only provision that you need to have is rent a car, the place is around 20 min away from aruba downtown (Oranjestad) and 35 min from the high rise hotel.

This place was easily one of my family's favorite vacation rentals. We try to avoid staying in very tourist-y areas and this was perfect, it was farther away but it wasn't lonely and isolated. The property was beautiful with an outdoor pool that my family used almost every day. It was very well kept and was decorated beautifully. Kris, the owner, did everything he could to make us feel at home, he was a pleasure to meet and to talk to. As for the island itself, there's so much to see, like all the different beaches, our favorites being Rogers Beach and Mangel Halto. The Casi Bari rock formations were really cool as well. Surprisingly one of the highlights was going to breakfast at House of Cakes. The food was absolutely delicious and blew us all away and the environment there was super cozy. The island overall is perfect for nature-lovers and adventure seekers. An easy 5 stars from us all.

“Awesome hospitality”
Reviewed 27 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed in the two bedroom by the pool arriving on Christmas Day. Kris had everything arranged for us including a Christmas Tree and turkey. (The best I ever had ) His hospitality was amazing. We had a wonderful time in Aruba with perfect weather everyday . We had a rental car and were able to visit a different beach every day. On New Years Eve , our children took surf lessons and we rang in the New Year watching the fireworks explode all over the island.
Thanks to Kris and Adriana for making our Aruba vacation one we will never forget.

“What An Ideal Place To Say”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

We spent 10 days at Aruba Hideaway. We also had the breakfast plan, which I think was an additional $6 per person. Well worth it. Kris and Adriana are the owners/manager and they are just across the street, so if you need something they are always available. They can give you tips on good restaurants, great beaches, grocery stores, etc. They recommended a pizza place, and it was the very best pizza we ever had. So I think they know their recommendations quite well!

The Hideaway is about 20 minute drive from downtown, and about 35 minutes from hotel zone. It's not far, but sometimes traffic is heavy and slow. That is what makes the Hideaway so perfect. You are away from all the noise and traffic of the city, and the hordes of people from the cruise ships.

We had one of the lower units. The pool was right outside our door. How perfect is that? Altho there were just two of us, we had two baths and two bedrooms. Very comfortable and spacious. We had a full kitchen and had fresh eggs from the chickens the owners. have. Better than home.

Parking is very convenient if you rent a car, which we did. And altho you are in a residential neighborhood, it's very private because of the wall surrounding the complex. We never saw or heard anyone around.

We read the other interviews that compliment Kris and Adriana. We agree wholeheartedly. The are great people, and very much want to make your vacation perfect.

Peaceful, quiet.. About a 5 minute ride from a private lagoon with great snorkeling. Minutes from wonderful dining.

If you want to avoid the tourists, the big families, and the huge resorts, this is the place. Chris, the owner/manager picked us up at the airport, showed us around, took us to the grocery store to stock the fridge, and was there all week if we needed anything. \

Beautiful salt water pool right outside the door. Big new BBQ by the pool made it easy to eat breakfast and lunch at home.. We went out for most dinners..

Overall a fantastic experience.. Will be back in december...
