The Space

La Boheme is a beautiful brand new vacation apartment property consisting of four 1-bedroom apartments in a tropical garden setting with swimming pool. La Boheme is located just 850 yards from the beach (Palm Beach) and the Marriott Resort.

At this location, in the quiet residential area of Bakval, you are just (walking) minutes from the beach, hotels, water sports and other activities, cinemas en 2 large shopping malls. 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. Featuring all the comforts of home, including complete kitchens, wireless internet, telephone, alarm system, large flat screen TV.

The apartments are all 1-bedroom/ 1-bathroom with a separate living- and bedroom. The bedrooms feature a queen bed and they are set-up to sleep 2 persons. To guarantee the peace and quiet for the guests at La Boheme, we accept limited reservations with children. Reservations with children are only accepted for the Superior 1-bedroom apartment (apt.1) and there's a maximum of 2 children. Housekeeping during your stay is optional (at a small surcharge) and can be requested.

Apartment #1 is the Superior 1-bedroom apartment, apartments #2 3 and 4 are the Regular 1-bedroom apartments and 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. There is secured parking inside the gated property. The apartments each have an individual alarm system, safety deposit box and telephone. In the evenings the garden and pool are romantically illuminated.

The property and reservations manager of La Boheme is Julia de Ruijter, former owner of Boardwalk hotel, with over 20 years experience in the vacation rental business on Aruba. After your arrival you receive a personalized check in and a small tour of your apartment and the property. During your stay Julia and her team remain available 24/7 to assist with anything you need help with or answer any questions you may have.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a delightful time at La Boheme. I can't say enough about the high level of quality support and service provided by Ardeline. The house and pool are exactly as advertised - no surprises, which is a good thing. Units are clean and bright. Pool provides a great way to refresh after a day at the beach. While pretty close to the beaches and Marriott complex, a car is highly recommended to avoid hot and dusty walks.

    Close to the upper end of Palm Beach and the great snorkeling at Boca Catalina and Arashi Beach.

    We look forward to returning.

  • We really enjoyed our time on the island and this place was no exception. From the color palette to the pool it was very pleasant.

    October 2013
  • We had a great stay at La Boheme! The apartment was clean and fresh. Everything was new and Julia thought of every single detail, e.g. a coolbox and chairs to take with you to the beach, floaters for the swimming pool, some books to swap, free use of the washing machine & dryer. She even wrote a extensive guide about the apartments, Aruba, nice restaurants, cafe's and beaches and where to snorkel/dive.

    If you're looking for a great place to relax after a hard day of... eh... sunbathing at the beach, choose La Boheme.

Hi there! Nice to meet you. My name is Julia, and together with my husband Sjoerd (pronounced Steward) we offer the North Shore Cottage Aruba for short term vacation rental. I used to own the Boardwalk Vacation Retreat, a small hotel across from the Marriott which we sold in 2011. We have 3 small kids, Tom Kim and Lisa (10 8 and almost 2). I have lived on Aruba since I was 3 months. Sjoerd moved here from Holland about 19 years ago. Tom Kim Lisa and Luuk were all born here. We'd love to welcome you to Aruba and to our North Shore Cottage... Come and experience for yourself what makes Aruba so special :)
