“One of my best experinces.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

The owners Noud & Francoise are excellent host and very helpful in directions and places to go in Aruba. I always liked the early evenings at the pool with wonderful wine an lovely conversations with the owners and other guest. Noud makes a great cup of coffee also.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. I like the rooms facing the back gardens the best.

The taxi from the airport knew the place. We were warmy welcomed by the owner Noud ynd his partner Frans. Immediately you feel like at home. Funny Noud is a crazy mixture of great dictator, mother superior, tourguide and a host taking care of everything. We spreciated a short stay in his warm guesthouse with the animals, the garden and thd pool. If Noud would serve beakfast and ask 10 USD more, it would have been perfect. But looking at the big hotels and the people staying there we can only recommand Little David and the 2 guys. He will vlise for one month and renovate. Good luck mon ami!!!

Me and my girlfriend booked for 9 days at Little David in januari. Since we were a hetrosexual couple, we were a little nervous how our first stay at a gay-hotel would be. And as we expected it was WONDERFUL.
Noud and his husband showed us a hospitality that we haven´t recieved at any other hotels/guesthouses. We could sit all night long and drink good wine and conversate about everything. They cooked Dutch and Arubian food several times and invited us.
The rooms are very clean and big. You have AC, fan and a big wardedrob. The pool area is very cosy and nice.
Noud helped us with everything; directions, restaurant recomendation, which beaches we should visit, where to rent car etc.
If you want to have a taste of genuine Aruba then Guesthouse Little David is the perfect hotel.

Close to the airport. Close to downtown. Quiet neighborhood. Beautiful house and gardens. The hosts are very friendly and speak several languages. They can obtain discounts for car rentals for their guests. OCT is the hottest month but every other month the temp is 84 f . Will be back at Little David for sure. Erik Pillar

My partner and I arrived at the Little David Guesthouse, which was very hard to find even following the owners directions. We toured the place with Noud who smelled as if he had been drinking all day long. The rooms were very warm. He told us that he will not run the air conditioning during the day as it cost too much. Noud also expained to us that the neighbors all knew tht the hotel was for gays, and they generally did not have any problems. We did not check in and would not recommend this place to anyone. We found a very nice hotel that was gay friendly and truly close to the downtown area, beaches and the islands only gay bar. The hotel was called "The talk of the Town". It cost about 45.00 more per night but was well worth it as it had air conditioning a very nice generous breakfast that would have cost 30.00 or moreper couple at a restaurant.

When you respect, you will have the same respect and perhaps even more in return. Our visit to Little David was truly a wonderful experience. All the amenities of home, freedom to roam and choice to relax when and wherever. The hosts, Noud and Frans, were very gracious. The cocktail hour was always inviting and full of conversation about how was your day, what can we assist with in planning for tomorrow and tell us about your needs. Mi casa su casa. We will definitely return to visit Aruba and lodge with Noud and Frans at Little David. Remember, to read some reviews and remarks about the facility and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Any special requests, contact the hosts with a quick email....they are more than willing to accommod...

If you were lucky enough to live on the beautiful island of Aruba, you'd be happy to call this place home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the pool area clean and nicely appointed with kitschy object d'arte. Two provisos: be gay male or at least very gay male friendly and do not have qualms if other guests wish to be nude in the pool area.

I read the unfortunate comments of one reviewer here who apparently couldn't get past the somewhat bossy demeanor of one of the owners, to see his big heart and desire that his guests have a great experience of the island. Francois, the other of the couple, picked us up at airport, and one night when we were uncertain of the location of a particular restaurant he led us there in his pickup. Noud is the majordomo, Dutch and very kind.

I do recommend renting a car ($127 for 4 1/2 days for us) from the agency the owners will suggest. The house is in a residential area, about 5 minutes drive from the beach & downtown. The agency will bring the car to the house. The roads are well maintained and easy to navigate.
