Robert was very prompt to respond quickly to our inquiry and immediately provided us a phone number to contact him as soon as we arrived in Aruba. He was waiting for us when we arrived at the cottage. He was congenial and friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed staying at the cottage, it is in a quiet and very safe neighborhood. There is always a cool breeze blowing in the back yard. From the cottage we were five minutes from the best beaches, restaurants, and bars.
Robert was very nice, and greeted us warmly. The cottage was as shown in the pictures. The backyard is great for having breakfast and relaxing when you don't want to be in the sun. The kitchen has the necessities, and is neat. Bedroom/shower are fine as well. The neighborhood is nice, with newly built houses. It is a 20 min walk from the beach, which is not bad during the day, but gets tricky once dark. The reason being, most roads in Aruba don't have sidewalks, and a lot of them don't have streetlights. Additionally, taxi's can't locate the place easy, and a lot of them don't go to neighborhoods at night. Renting a car is pretty much a necessity if you want to be out past dark. The location is convenient and everything in the north side of the island is less than 10 min car drive. All in all, we enjoyed our stay.
Het was een geweldige tijd in de cottage van Robert en Nelcy. Het huisje is van alle gemakken voorzien: schoon, verzorgd en zeer privé. En ook belangrijk: in een veilige buurt. We zijn in de (bijna) 2 weken dat we er waren het hele eiland rondgereden en het voelde nergens zo veilig als dit stukje van Aruba. Je bent in maximaal 10 minuten autorijden aan zee: welke van de 2 kanten van het eiland je ook kiest.
De tropische achtertuin is erg fijn om te zitten of in de ligstoelen te genieten van zon én schaduw. Is het buiten te warm, dan geeft de airco in de slaapkamer aangename verkoeling. Deze loopt door in een fijne badkamer, maar de buitendouche is ook top.
In de cottage is verder alles aanwezig qua kookgerei en er is een verzameling met de nodige basics, evenals meer dan voldoende handdoeken. En een grote koelkast met vriesvak, voor een zeer welkome hoeveelheid ijsblokjes.
Goed en stabiel internet is tevens een groot pluspunt.
Robert en Nelcy geven je alle rust en ruimte, ze wonen dicht in de buurt (handig als er iets aan de hand zou zijn), maar verder heb je echt het gevoel dat dit huisje er helemaal voor jou alleen is. Wat ook komt door de zeer rustige buurt.
We komen absoluut terug op Aruba en als het beschikbaar is, zonder meer in dit huisje. 5 sterren, zonder twijfel!
This was our first AirBnB experience and a super great one at that! The little house was located less than 10 minutes away from the Palm Beach area, Boca Catalina, Malmok, and Moomba beach.
We would go snorkeling everyday and lay out in the sun (Robert had beach chairs and coolers that we could borrow).
Robert was a great host, he met us at the house when we arrived gave us the little tour of the very clean cottage and left us to enjoy the island. He even messaged us the name of a great vegetarian restaurant, Green Food Service, it was amazing!
The kitchen was adequately stocked with dishes, knives, silverware and cooking appliances (microwave, sandwich maker, toaster, toaster oven, and rice cooker). We wanted a place to do our own cooking and we got it!
The patio was a lovely retreat and we would often eat or rest in the shade during the hottest times of the day.
If you want a little place that is close to awesome snorkeling beaches without the price tag of a beach resort this is the place to stay.
When we come back to Aruba (because we will) we definitely hope to stay here again.
Aruba is beautiful, staying at this cottage made the whole trip even better. It's a really lovely home, nicely equipped with everything you need, a comfy bed and clean shower. The outdoor space was full of plants and shade - great to spend time in. The location to me was perfect, about a 5 minute drive for the high hotel strip (which was where I needed to go for my diving!) The host, Robert, was very welcoming, answered all my questions and was available if anything. I would definitely stay at this cottage again and strongly recommend it!
Bij aankomst verwelkomde Robert ons, er stond koud bier, water en bonbons in de ijskast. Hoe lekker is dit na een lange een reis. Het huis was schoon en het bed was opgemaakt er was een mooie tuin bij. We hebben het huis 3 weken gehuurd. Het was klein, maar alles was aanwezig, zelfs strandstoelen en badlakens echt geweldig. De locatie was mooi een rustige straat in Aruba Noord.
We hebben echt genoten van onze vakantie.
For the price you cannot beat it. Definitely saved us money than staying at an all-inclusive resort and you get to see more of the island (if you rent a car).
Robert responded whenever I messaged and our flight was delayed so I had to go back to the airport in the morning to pick up a renta car and he gave me a lift to the airport which was awesome.
Place is perfect for 2 people or even by yourself. Great washroom (wish there was hot water but its so hot in aruba its nice to take cool showers). Bed was comfortable and air conditioning in the room, kitchen was stocked with pots/pans/plates/utensils etc. We cooked breakfast daily and dinner couple nights. Upstairs good place for yoga/mediate/exercise and nice patio to have a drink, food, read a book. Free WiFi was definitely needed to check emails, message friends on the island to meet up and also use my Chromecast to watch movies on at night.
Grocery store is literally 5 min drive which has everything in it. 5 minute drive to Arashi Beach where we went couple times. We bought a bigger size cooler for day trips to baby beach, or any beach so whoever stays, your welcome, lol. Beach chairs were also a help to bring to the beach. Aruba is so small you can get to alot of the main spots with a 5 min drive. If you don't have a vehicle I would suggest renting one as it will make your life so much easier on the island but it is doable if your not on a time constraint.
Check out Madame Janet (make a reservation) & Zee Rover (be prepared to wait in line for a table) as top places to eat.
We ended up leaving 2 bottles of wine & bottle of vodka and couple of beers for whoever came after us as well. Cheers.
Thanks again Robert.
