“Spacious and fit for the tropics house”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We liked our stay at this house very much. The garden is fantastic and has lots of space with shadow. The house is very spacious and there are lots of places to sit. A lot of beach gear is avalaible to be used (snorkel stuff, beach chairs etc.). We were with a family of 4, with kids in age 11 and 13. The kids had their own bedroom with a double bed..! The house is build in the old way for tropical houses. It is supplied with a lot of ventilation windows, with those little glass panels that can be turned. All roooms have cieling fans that operate without a sound and manage to keep the rooms at a nice temperature. We did not use the airco at all. The house is located at the south part of the island and is more Arubian then the area with the high rise hotels. There are supermarkets nearby with a good supply of day to day needs. For the extra stuff you can drive to the bigger supermarkets, but that is not needed. The owners live at the opposite side of the road and are very kind and helpfull. We got loads of interesting information and sites to look at from them. For example the waterpark of Aruba was a very good advise. It is near the "hooiberg". It is not easy to be found, but once you are at the bottom of the stairs of the hooiberg the entrance is there...

This rental is at the south end of the island where the best "off the beach" snorkeling can be found. Baby beach is a very short drive from the house.The owners, who live across the street, are more than helpful. They met us at the airport so we could just follow them to the house. The also had offered to do some light grocery shopping for us so that we would have food in the house in the morning.
All of the hustle and bustle is at the north end of the island where the big hotels are and the cruise ship docks. It is a pretty short drive from one end to the other but we spent the majority of our time in the water. The big supermarket is located about half way up the island but there are many smaller ones around San Nicolas where the rental is.
If you want all inclusive pampering then go North. If you want to experience the real Aruba this is the place for you. Owned by U.S. expates from Pennsylvania you will have a comfortable, safe, local experience. We went with another couple who we have shared other travel experiences. We enjoy the high end accommodations but also enjoy the roads less traveled traveled. This is a comfortable, clean, rental where we felt very safe.
