On Malmokweg, en route to Tierra del Sol Golf Course, three lovely studio apartments in a private residence a few feet from famed Malmok Beach in Aruba. Seperate garden entrance, large landscaped pool, tropical garden, full bathroom, kitchenette, hot water, TV, Free Wi-Fi. Must be a dog lover.
Expect to do nothing, but sit around the pool and watch the flowers grow, the birds nesting in the trees, and the lizards sunning themselves on the wall! Free WI-FI naturally everywhere.
Beach, beach, beach! Golf too!
No shops, excellent restaurants within 2km, but otherwise we are a beach side neighborhood!
The public bus stops outside our gate, it goes to town, the schedule is flexible and on island time!
Your welcome committee, your host and the dogs and the proximity to the beach.

My girlfriend and I stayed for 8 nights. It was a great place to stay. We were only supposed to stay for 5 nights but a winter storm back home extended it. Rona was great. Our rental car got hit by a drunk driver over night and she helped us get it straightened out with the police and rental car company. She even drove us to the airport to get a new at because we were extending our stay. Awesome beaches and snorkeling right by the apartment. Glad we didn't spend a ton staying at a resort.
Our experience and time spent at Villa Bougainvillea exceeded our expectations. Rona was a great hostess, greeting us with beers upon arrival and giving us great suggestions regarding activities and local food spots. She even gave us a ride to dinner our first night in and a ride to the airport on our day of departure. Her dogs are extremely friendly and well trained. The accommodation itself was well advertised, clean, and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Villa Bougainvillea and would recommend staying with Rona. Thanks again Rona and dogs :)
My husband and I just got back from a fabulous vacation in Aruba over Christmas and Villa Bougainvillea was such an important part of our wonderful experience! The property is even better than what we anticipated: it's beautiful, clean, and literally just a few steps from the beach and a short walk from some of the most wonderful beaches like Boca Catalina. While we were only a healthy walk away from the very popular hotel areas, we felt that the location was far enough so we could relax and enjoy some quiet time as well. The studio apartment had all we needed and the pool was just outside of our door.
Most importantly, Villa Bougainvillea owner Rona is absolutely the most radiant and welcoming person I've ever met and she is a perfect host. She was incredibly responsive and instantly helped us with all our needs. She even allowed us to use her beach chairs and snorkeling gear.
I hope I can go back soon and strongly recommend it to everyone
Had such an amazing time here in Aruba! The house is in a wonderful location -- close enough to walk to the major resorts, but far enough to enjoy a semi-private beach with one of the best sunsets on the island! The property is gorgeous, with a lovely garden and outdoor grill. Rona is such a great hostess, and offers snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, you name it -- and plenty of advice as to the best activities and dining in the area. Highly recommend!
Where do I start? Should I mention how Rona is AWESOME or should I mention how close the beach (Malmok) is to her Villa? I also want to say how my Girlfriend and I appreciate her hospitality. She is really laid back and carefree, whatever you need she is like Superwoman and comes to the rescue. The Samba suite was very spacious and clean. The pool and backyard space is very clean and spacious just like the pictures and makes you not want to leave. We could not have asked for more and every penny is worth it. We will definitely be coming back soon! Oh yea, cant forget Peanut butter, Mini, Kaya papaya, and Bruiser. Those are the watch dogs, they do their job ha! Thank you for everything Rona, and we will see you again, THIS YEAR! =)
Villa Bougainvillea is a little slice of heaven and Rona is a fantastic host! Rona greeted us warmly when we arrived and was always available when we had questions about places to go or needed help making reservations. She was kind and generous throughout our stay, making us feel incredibly comfortable and welcome. The Villa itself was the perfect place to stay while we were in Aruba and provided an ideal escape from the touristy areas of the large hotels. The patio is a lovely place to watch the brightly colored birds fly around, catch glimpses of tiny lizards, listen to the wooden wind chimes softly making music, take a dip in the refreshing pool and give a friendly pat to one of her four sweet dogs. The villa is also conveniently close to Malmok Beach, Catalina Beach (good for snorkeling), Arashi Beach (our favorite) and the lighthouse. We will definitely be back!
We had a amazing stay at Rona's Villa, Rumba Suite. Rona is a warm and gracious host, available but not intrusive. The dogs are great company as well! The property is perfect: clean, quiet, beautifully landscaped and decorated. Across the street from Malmok beach which, after exploring a few others on the island, was our favorite. I definitely recommend if you stay here that you rent a car as it is isolated from any shops, restaurants, etc. Thank you Rona. The only drawback to our trip was we couldn't stay longer! Next time!

You will love Aruba from the Malmok Beach point of view, away from kids, elevators and wall to wall carpets. We offer serenity and beauty, mixed in with island hospitality. I am a writer/journalist, and a built-in resource for what ever's going on here . . .
