This was our 3rd trip to Aruba - and our best! First time to stay in a house on the north end of the island - We loved having the extra room. Property was spacious and had many amenities that enticed us to choose this rental. Pool was WONDERFUL and area well maintained.
Property is not on the beach - but this was NOT a deterrent. We rented a car - and it was a couple minute drive to the very lovely beach where you could sit and veg out- para-sail, or paddle board. Sunsets were amazing! Close to restaurants, shopping, and tours. ENJOYABLE!!!
If I could rate higher I would. We have been coming to Aruba for 15 years and this by far is the best place we have ever stayed. Accommodations are beautiful .. staff great. Great vacation with family & friends. Would recommend this to anyone. Would for sure do this again and never stay in a hotel.
We stayed here for a week in July and had a blast. The villa had more than enough room for 8 adults and twin boys. The property manager Brumm even provided play pens and a crib for the kiddies. The air conditioned rooms were very comfortable, and the washer and dryer allowed us to keep our towels clean for trips to the beaches and the beautiful pool in the backyard. I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Frank, Ivan, Brun and the rest of Merlot Villa family for putting up with me and housing us for my 30th birthday vacation. This house was a marvelous and had everything we needed an more. We have the 5 bedroom and everyone loved the views and the fact that it was closed in. We felt like we were safe and "rich" because you needed to have access to the gate. We lounged, we cook, and took advantage of everything this house had to offer.
The Merlot family answered all emails, a year in advance, months in advance, the day of and while visiting. So thank you once again. Everything ran smoothly. We also got to meet Chase one of the dogs that were there while upon arrival. For a person who's afraid of dogs, I didn't fear them at all they were very friendly.
If your looking for a safe and secure home, look no more, this is the place to be!!
Staying at Merlot Villas makes sense, and for many reasons really. This gated facility is fantastic! it includes everything for a Home Away From Home, besides having your own private pool, a large lounging area and deck, BBQ facility, comfortable beds and more! what also proved to be very effective, is the location, nearby the best beaches on the island, including Palm Beach and our own favourite beach, Arashi, as well as close to the best shopping, like Palm Beach Mall or Paseo Herencia, as well as Superfood for your groceries, and the best restaurants! Have I mentioned the friendly and attentive (as well as leave you alone if that's your preference) operators, that is a big plus as well. Thank you Frank and Bram, as well as the gentleman that cleaned our swimming pool so often!
We stayed in Merlot villa's for 9 days. It was truely a perfect place for our stay in a Aruba. We were with 4 persons so there is enough rooms in the villa. Even with 8 persons you have a enough space. The swimming pool is very nice and the garden has much privacy. Other guest of the park cannot look in your garden. You could walk to the sea but I would suggest to hire car so you can visit other nice places in Aruba like Baby beach, the natural bridge and the lighthouse.
Next time when we go to Aruba I would go to Merlot villa again!!!!
We are a family of six from Sweden! If you are going to rent a villa in Aruba...please rent Merlot Villas! You will not be disappointed! Incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff! Unfortunately I forgot his name, but we called him Blondy, :) a nice guy from the Netherlands is so friendly and helpfull! Thank you for all your help! The villa was top notch, clean, neat, modern villa with everything you can think of that is needed! Close to beaches! We are very, very satisfied! All six who lived in your house would warmly recommend your villa! Thank you! Hope to se you again! //Malin Karlsson
