“The Palm Casita was wonderful AND Kiki and Frans were the best hosts”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

The Casita is perfectly located about 3 minutes from Eagle beach, 7 minutes from Palm beach and about 10 minutes from downtown Oranjestad - all by car. It is also just a 5 minute walk to the Super Food Grocery store which has everything you could possible need including beer, wine etc.

It was very clean and spacious with modern facilities in the kitchen and living room and the bedrooms were air conditioned which were perfect for sleeping. The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable and the wifi was fast and reliable.
The grounds, pool and porches (front and back) are exactly as listed and shown in the posting and were just perfect for our family of 4 adults. The pool is extremely clean and is professionally monitored and cleaned weekly.
The beach towels, cooler and beach chairs provided were very handy and really convenient.
Although the place was perfect for us, I've saved the best for last. We found the hosts (Kiki and Frans) to be the most important assets. They are really good people who provided us with all the help and guidance we needed on an ongoing basis. I can't say enough good things about them - Thanks again Kiki and Frans for everything.

“Great time at Bubali Garden Homes !”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in October 2016

We had a wonderful vacation on Aruba. We have been to Kiki and Frans twice. The first time in the Palm Casita and the second time in the Mango Casita. Thanks to their helpfulness, we quickly found our way on the island. We were with 4 persons. The apartment is spacious, clean, offers privacy and is very central. The most beautiful beaches and nice restaurants are close by and the other sights are very good to visit. They've a very nice pool to relax and cool off after a nice day on the beach. Really recommended! We will definitely come back here!

“The perfect place for a great holiday on a wonderful island”

In August 2016 we've stayed in the Palm Casita at Bubali Garden Homes for a week. The reception by the owners (Kiki & Frans) was great, they're very friendly. The house is clean and very spacious for four people, it has everything you need. Beside this, they have a BBQ which you can use. There's a nice pool (that lights up in the evening) in the backyard that you share with the people in the other casita. Both casitas have their own terraces which you don't share. The house we had, had even two terraces which was perfect because we could choose to sit in the sun or in the shade.
Kiki and Frans are great people who are always there to help you with whatever you want or need and they even brought us a few times to the beach when we didn't have a car yet.

We highly recommend this place!!

“BEST PLACE ON EARTH!!!!!!!!”

This was our first time to Aruba & renting the Palm Casita was the BEST choice for us! It had EVERYTHING we could ask for & more! The owners live on the property which was important to me and they were the kindest people ever! (even gave us a special surprise for our 25th wedding anniversary!!!) We had our own private pool and privacy was not an issue! Coolers, Beach Chairs, Snorkeling equip., lovely thick beach towels and a full size kitchen was a bonus! Beautiful large screen TV (we watched it once LOL-no time ) and if we had any questions Kiki and Frans were there to answer them. Best food places (Zee Rovers for the food and PRICE ) and literally down the street from 2 grocery stores! Beach was 5 minutes away!!!!!! We have made friends for life and are already looking for dates for next year to go down in the fall! Next time I will bring HALF of my suitcase (too many shoes and clothes LOL) and will bring a special something for the owners of this fabulous PARADISE !!!!!!! Would recommend in a heartbeat to any other family and friends to rent this beautiful home! MISS THEM ALREADY!!!!!!! xoxoxox
