This villa was perfect for our needs!!! So cute and convenient to access the whole island with just a rental car. Plus having your own rented villa feels like you're home and renting a car makes it so easy to get up and go wherever and whenever you want. I couldn't imagine ever booking a hotel room when a place like this is available to rent for a fraction of the price. I'm booking this same villa for our next trip.
This was my first trip to Aruba and I have to say I will do it exactly the same way on my next visit! The villa is beautiful. Super clean, and easy to access. Plenty of room for our party. I wish hotels were as nice as this! Can't say enough about what an amazing adventure this was!!!
This is a great house with tons of room. Two bedrooms with king-size beds plus an upstairs room perfect for kids. The patio is great to hang out on for morning coffee and late night drinks.
The house is very clean with nice furnishing.
We highly recommend staying at this Villa in Aruba. We found the Villa to be very nice - it was clean and had everything we needed. The owners are great to work with and very accommodating. Martha, the housekeeper who lives across the street and her husband were great too - very helpful and friendly. The size of the house was great for our group and we had the maximum number of people allowed - never felt crowded - 2 bathrooms with showers was nice to have. The air conditioners and fans worked great to keep the house temperature comfortable. During our stay, we spent most of our time at the beach or exploring the island. We made breakfast at the house each morning - kitchen was well equipped - and then packed up and left for the day, returned to shower and left again for dinner - restaurants we ate at were fabulous - we got recommendations from the house guest book and Island Locals. We watched beautiful sunsets on the beach, gambled at some very nice hotels and did some shopping too. We did spend some time on the Villa patio in the morning - drinking coffee and eating breakfast - very nice outdoor space. Also grilled out one evening and sat out by the outdoor table later at night with no problems. The property is gated and in a safe neighborhood - always felt safe on the Island. Staying at the Villa helped make our vacation more affordable for our group - we spent a lot of time by the hotel high rises - enjoyed the properties but did not pay top dollar to be hanging out there. The money we saved on housing we spent doing fun things on the island. We also rented a Van - worked out great - no issues. The Villa also had snorkeling gear we were able to use - we snorkeled at Baby Beach - it was awesome. We also rented ATV's and a UTV for 8 hours and explored the Island - it was a great way to see the island and a lot of fun. Weather in Aruba was great too and everyone we encountered was happy and friendly. Our group had a great vacation and highly recommend staying at the Aruban Tropical Villa in Punto de Oro.
We loved staying here. We have 3 kids aged 8, 5 and 1 & this property was perfect for our family, plenty of space for us to spread out in a nice quiet neighbourhood with easy access to the best spots in Aruba. It was great to be able to sit out in the evenings once the kids got to bed, they also loved having a secure yard to play out in.
We're the kind of family who likes to explore, rather than stick to the tourist hotspots, and this place is great for that, all of our favourite beaches were within a 15 minute drive (you need a car)
The house is kitted out well, it even has some extras which just make the stay even better, like a cool box to take down to the beach and a load of snorkels and flippers to borrow + the gas BBQ/Grill was a firm favourite in the evenings.
Beach recommendations : Boca Catalina (great snorkelling) Arashi + Eagle beach are both beautiful beaches that are a lot quieter than places like Palm beach. We found a few supermarkets all within 10min drive. Super Foods, great stock sometimes pricey & also Save-a-lot which had a decent stock but was a lot more reasonable to shop at. We didn't eat out much, but Fermins for ribs was close by, great good and good on price.
Overall loved this place, would 100% book again!
