Hindsight being 20/20 i would have booked a hotel in the main palm beach area or chose another caribbean island altogether as Aruba is too expensive for what it offers and is not my scene. Yes this apt. is close by Palm Beach and the economical option, but always a hassle to get car out of manual garage to go out then have to return car to garage upon return. Auto theft is prevelent in this area and if you are renting from La Boheme adherence to locking up car for the evening is a requirement. Def cuts down on the get up and go factor. The location is questionable and has many vacant lots in various stages of construction. It may one day be an upscale residential area but its def not achieved that status yet, in my opinion.
The pool and private hammock was excellent.

Public transportation (buses and taxis) are also available at just 3 minutes walking distance (Marriott). This means you do not have to rent a car when staying at La Boheme. The apartments are tastefully decorated in fresh and light colors, with all new furniture, pretty accessories and designer styled for an updated cool Caribbean look.

Apartment #1 is the larger Superior 1-bedroom apartment, apartments #2 3 and 4 are the Regular 1-bedroom apartments and these are all identical. The difference between #1 and the other three units, is that #1 has a slightly larger living room, kitchen, dining area (4 persons) and patio area. Furthermore apartment #1 has a door that closes off the bedroom from the living room area, whereas apartments #2 3 and 4 have separate areas but with an open doorway between them. The apartments have a private patio at the front, which faces and overlooks the pool and garden area. They also each have a totally private terrace in the back of the apartment. The sliding door in the bedroom provides the access to that patio. It's semi shaded with a pergola and there's a super comfy rocking sofa bed with canopy for shade. A great place to relax and read a book.There's common use of a large gas BBQ grill, washing machine and dryer, various housekeeping items, pool floats, beach chairs, books and magazines etc.The entire property is walled in and there's a gated entry.
