Stayed with wife and 2 kids from Cincinnati Ohio for X-mass break: Great booking excellent/home. It wasn't about unnecessary luxury but top quality and comfort. Our rental merlot was awesome even better than what picture showed ahead of the visit. All key enablers were there for our stay: kitchen items/appliances, tv-cable, and internet, also a very efficient A/C, pool, grill, plenty of space. Ivan was awesome host at arrival and departure, we stayed for a couple hours longer waiting for a delayed flight and it was not a problem. Cleaning /service staff were warmly friendly, punctual and efficient. Property is 5 mins drive from Palm Beach which is great and 8-10 to super foods a great market place to stock up with groceries. The neighborhood is well secure, clean and quiet at night for you to enjoy rest and relaxation. Thank you Merlot people, we will be back in summertime !.

Would definitely recommend and come back to Merlot Villas. From the start they were very responsive and accommodating. The furnishings were very tasteful. The gated development and alarm system were a nice safety bonus.

House is very nice, Nice Pool.
Bram the person that takes care of the house and helped us with what we needed was very nice.
Only complaint: The sheets on the bed did not look or feel clean.
Would be nice if they supplied us with Tissues.
Otherwise Great!

“It's even better than described”
Reviewed 29 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I booked this Villa based on the many positive reviews i read. The reviews and photos do not do justice compared to what we've seen. The Merlot Villas made our trip to Aruba even better. The villas are spacious with enough room for everyone. All bedrooms have their own bath, with the central A/C in the house it was never too hot and most importantly we just felt at home.
We also loved that the owner and staff were very friendly and attentive, we would get help instantly by just sending them an e-mail.
Merlot Villas is near the high rise hotel area and very close to everything.
I will definitely come back and surely will recommend this to everyone

“Spacious, beautiful modern villa”

My family and I loved this villa. The location was great a simple ten minute walk to palm beach. Market was literally steps away. The villa was amazing. We had a family that range in age from 6-62. Everyone loved the space and the layout. We spent many days swimming in the pool and eating ours meals outside. We even played a fun game of hid and seek. We felt so relaxed and at home. This was our third time on the island and first time renting a house. We will definitely stay at merlot villa for our future trips. Frank and Ivan are awesome. Since my first inquiry to the day we turned our keys in they were phenomenal. They were very kind, happy, responsive individuals. I travel frequently to different states, city, and countries by boat, plane, or car. And I will say this was the easiest and best stay I have had. Frank and Ivan are great to do business with and I highly recommend staying at merlot villa. Like many others I do recommend renting a car and for your groceries I suggest super foods they are much cheaper than Lings IGA.

I'm in love with the Merlot Villas. The photos only give part of the details of what's offered at this place. From the lovely swimming area, to the patios in each room; this place was amazing. It has everything you need for a nice family vacation to a simple girls trip. I really loved that Ivan and Frank were very responsive to our needs, even though I did not want to use my phone in Aruba. All I had to do was send a quick email and someone was right there to assist. I do recommend a rental car for getting around the Island. There was a small store around the corner with quite a few items for the stay in the villa, but for major shopping we drove to Super Foods. Merlot Villas is close to all the nice beaches and shopping areas. I definitely come back!
