Four of us stayed at Modanza Paradise for a week in November - my mother, my sister, my 11-year-old niece, and I. This was exactly what we needed, and we wouldn't hesitate to book this villa again should we return to Aruba.
The management company, Aruba Happy Rentals, couldn't have been more pleasant to deal with. They promptly responded to emails and easily accommodated a change in plans when our original flight was cancelled. The representative who met us at the property was lovely and she was prompt both upon arrival and departure.
The rental was clean, the pool was small but beautiful (it was cleaned twice during our stay), and there were plenty of towels - both beach and bath. We spent a huge amount of time in the pool!
Air conditioning worked quickly and well. We used it only in the bedrooms and only at night. It was cool enough in the mornings and evenings to be comfortable outside with just the fans.
The location was perfect for us. A car is necessary. It's central so it doesn't take long to get anywhere. Groceries were 2-10 minutes away depending on whether you wanted a local store or bigger one, Eagle beach was 10 minutes away with lots of parking, restaurants were close.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there.
WiFi worked really well. I had no problem streaming basic videos to my device.
The only things that could have been better was minor - the clothes line was broken, and considering we had towels and bathing suits drying all the time, it was a bit frustrating. Also, it is still a new development so there was some construction noise during the day.
I would recommend this house for anybody visiting Aruba who wants to stay away from the high rise/low rise areas.
