Fernando's apartment was very relaxing. Fernando is more hands off then other Airbnb hosts I've had (which I liked) but was always available when we needed him. He let us borrow some beach chairs and gave us a great recommendation for windsurfing. The maid service came every two days--it was really nice to have fresh towels and sheets. The apartment is centrally located and is walkable to the beach and casinos, but you have to walk across a busy road to get there. The bed was very comfortable. The apartment was dark, cool, and quiet. The AC worked great. It was nice to come back to somewhere like this after a long day outside in the sun. There are basic kitchen supplies, though if you want to make something more than fish and vegetables, you will have to do some juggling. We shared the outdoor space with another couple, who were super nice, but it could get difficult if there was a large group or children staying next door. Being able to hang out in the pool and outside, as well as shower off outside, was great. There was also a really sweet cat who hung out with us most of the trip. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a pleasant and centrally-located rental. The neighborhood is quite safe and nicer than some of the other neighborhoods inland. My only issue was that there was a rooster next door that crowed frequently--not something Fernando could change. If you are sensitive to that kind of noise this might not be the place for you.
Good experience staying at Fernando's place. Fernando and Carla are accessible, but also give you plenty of privacy. The apartment is very close to the Ritz and Marriott (5 minute walk), great location. The place is clean, and air conditioned, with fully equipped kitchen. We stayed for 5 days and it got cleaned/bed made throughout the stay. There is a friendly cat on the property that keeps guests company in the common area. A simple place in a great area with easy to deal with hosts.
Fernando and Carla were a great host. They help you out when needed but also give you privacy. The living spaces are accurately portrayed. The apartment was easy to find. It was a short walk, about 2 blocks) to the bus stop, taxi stand at the marriott or the ritz and to the beach. Once on the beach there is easy access to water sports, activities, bars and restaurants. Most bars offer happy hour. We didn't rent a car but didn't find the need to. A cab ride from the airport is $25 each way and it's a set rate. Downtown Aruba is easily accessible by bus which is $2 US. I will be a returning customer.
Fernando is a great host! My boyfriend and I enjoyed 3 nights at his beach-chic studio apartment. For a small fee, Fernando picked us up at the airport and immediately helped us get to know the island. He was available any time we needed him (which wasn't too often at all...everything we needed was available). The apartment and common areas were well kept and so welcoming/relaxing each night. I'm so glad we stayed here because it was genuinely a nice home to come back to each night opposed to a pricey, crowded hotel.
We stayed for one short night, and the studio was perfect. It was clean with soft sheets and had good AC. It was also near Arashi Beach, one of our favorite beaches on the island. Fernando was easy to communicate with and was there to greet us when we arrived.
Fernando was amazing from the time we landed. He offers a service to pick you up at the airport for 20 bucks, which is way less than what a taxi would charge you. He was waiting outside at pickup with a sign that had my name on it.
The apartment was clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated. It was walking distance to the Marriot Resorts, the Ritz Carlton Resort, and Palm Beach and close to the restaurant strip. Fernando and his parter were very accommodating; if I had questions, they responded immediately or quickly thereafter. I would recommend his place to those staying in Aruba.
