“FANTASTIC VACATION and VACATION HOME”
Reviewed 30 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We stayed at two of Mike’s properties over our 2 week stay in Aruba. First was Aruba Escape… and what an ESCAPE it was! Just paradise! It was an amazing house on a truly amazing island. The house had large bedrooms and tons of space inside and outside. The second was Palm Beach Oasis. It was a charming, comfortable and super conveniently located home in Palm Beach.

The kitchens were well stocked and had everything we needed. Both locations were very private neighborhoods. Safe, clean and conveniently located. They were far enough away from the crowds to enjoy a really private and relaxing villa while being close enough to everything there is to do nearby. We enjoyed drinks in the pool, dinner on the patio and lunches on Eagle Beach! (What an amazing beach!) In the afternoon we’d head back for happy hours in the pool, and to swim, relax, barbecue and plan our evening.

We did lots of the recommended activities on Mike’s "Top 10" lists. The information was amazing and saved us lots of time. We went to many of the beaches, the bat caves, Arikok Park, the bird sanctuary, the catamaran sunset sail (highly recommended). And we did a number of water sports adventures including parasailing through the company Mike recommended. They were great! The car rental car company he recommended was awesome and only $40/day! We adored Bugaloe Pier Bar and the live music. There was just so much do to and so many beautiful places…all on one island.

We’re definitely going back to both of these properties on this amazing island… it’s already been agreed!

“A fantastic family retreat spot in beautiful Aruba”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

people found this review helpful

This home on a generous lot in the back of a small development provided a fun, comfortable place to enjoy Xmas and New Years for our family of 7 adults. The big front patio porch with long community table invites long talks, card games and casual meals. If it gets too hot, the beautiful pool with water feature is literally just a few feet away (it is immaculate too!). The interior is spacious, with comfortable bedrooms and storage. The guest house is a real boon if you have someone that needs a bit more privacy or perhaps has a baby who enjoys the night life. The kitchen is very functional and has room for several chefs/cooks for family meal prep and socializing. The individual a/c units offered temp comfort during an unusually wet/humid period for Aruba... phew! The rain did prompt two different episodes of a minor electrical circuit issue (on New Years and Xmas eves no less). Not to worry, the owner is well networked with local support and the issue was taken care of within hours ...hard to find that level of service back home, let alone on island time/holiday hours! We also got great lead up info re who to use, what to avoid etc from the owners, so we came prepared and avoided what otherwise could have been orientation annoyances. It is a good long hike to the beach, so we found having a car and getting to meals very useful. The Aruban hospitality elsewhere on the island was equal to our hosts' and it all makes a great getaway for your holidays. * one note: the Arubans like their fireworks for New Years ...for 3 days, very loud, everywhere and often... only mention this because if someone has a service member or first responder with PTSD challenges, avoid Aruba 12/31-1/2. I don't think there's a property on the island that is immune to this "enthusiasm". * Thanks so much Kim and Mike!

“One Happy Island - Aruba”

I just want to point out that I have stayed at two of Michael's places. This one and one in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. I have to say that Michael is absolutely wonderful to work with and I would not hesitate to stay at another one of his places. He provides a list of the top things to do and eat in the area and the list is right on.

Aruba is a remarkable place to stay. The beaches are amazing. This house was great. We were there with extended family and it was big enough and bonus was to have the pool for the kids to swim in. The kitchen is big and was fully stocked. The bedrooms were big and nicely decorated. The Master bathroom / shower was great. The place was very clean and close the supermarket, eagle beach and palm beach. Aruba is a wonderful place to visit and spend some time in paradise.

We are so glad you had such a great time in Aruba. We are very grateful for you taking the time to share your experience so extensively. It is very helpful to future guests and especially those new to Aruba. There's a reason it's the most re-visited island in the Caribbean and we hope you'll be back to enjoy it again and again.

Thanks and Happy Travels!
