The cottage is uniquely located in pristine natural surroundings on Aruba’s North Shore on the Northern tip of the island.
It’s located right on the border of the residential area called "Seru Pela" on the West and Aruba’s newest protected natural area "Salt Spray Park" to the East. It is bordered on 3 sides by this protected natural area.
Everything surrounding the cottage is basically the back garden… it’s quite an extraordinary location… Pure nature. Fresh ocean breezes and the distant sound of the waves to go with it. No traffic. Safe. Just nature. Ideal location for an eco-style vacation.
Although it will absolutely feel like it, the normal world with all of it’s hustle and bustle isn’t that far away. Aruba’s high rise hotel area with it’s watersports, restaurants, shops, casinos, cinemas and entertainment is only about 3 car minutes away.
Wide open views of magnificent sunrises and sunsets. And of the Alto Vista Chapel to the South, the California Lighthouse and Tierra del Sol Golf course to the North. For nature lovers this location is utterly amazing.
At this location a car is a must. If you’re interested in renting a car, we have rental cars available for our guests at special prices. All rentals include free drop-off and delivery at the airport, a local Samsung smart phone, a Garmin GPS navigation system, which will be preprogrammed with the accommodation where you will be staying as Home and an island map.

We were greeted at the cottage by Stuart who gave a tour of the place and explained some things to us.
the cottage was exactly as expected with a few little extra surprises.
All I can say is this is the best vacation rental I have ever had the pleasure of staying at! My new wife ad I were on our honeymoon and from beginning to end it was perfect. From the car they left for us at the airport with a phone and GPS to the picnic basket of goodies and wine they left for us, it was all a dream come true. The house is truly one of the islands hidden gems, and the hosts are too! Out only regret was that we didn't stay longer!
Hi David, glad to hear you had a great time at the North Shore Cottage. The cottage loves to be home to honeymooning couples :) May you be blessed with many years of happy together time, much love in your future and frequent trips to build happy memories. Hope to have you back for an Anniversary sometime :) Best wishes!
Simply put... This place is amazing! After extensive research on where to stay for our honeymoon we decided to get the best of both worlds by staying on each end of the island. We stayed at the north shore cottage and we were more than pleased with our experience. The view out the front door and access to the natural area was amazing. Julia was a fantastic host, her attention to detail made the trip very easy. The cottage is very cozy. There is a very detailed manual which explains all the good beaches, snorkel spots, and restaurants in the area. One place I would add is a restaurant called Pinchos... Very romantic and beautiful sunsets. Renting a jeep is a must and Julia set everything up for us. Do yourself a favor and stay here, money well spent!
Julia was an excellent hostess, giving us all of the important information about our stay prior to arrival and then provided so many helpful details once we got to this adorable, picturesque cottage! The cottage was clean, comfortable and looked just as it had on the website. My husband and I were in Aruba for our honeymoon and when hearing this, Julia quickly came by with a sweet card and bottle of wine. She went above and beyond and would highly recommend staying at her cottage.
The North Shore Cottage is perfect for anyone who is looking for a richer, more authentic Aruban experience. The cottage is located in a safe, scenic part of the island.Being at the cottage allows one the feeling of truly living in Aruba. It's charming, clean, and spacious enough for 2-4 people.
The hosts also do a great job of providing guests with all the accoutrements of having fun in Aruba. They provide top quality snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs, and coolers. Also one can rent a car or jeep. We recommend renting either one, but only the Jeep can get one to special parts of the island that are more rugged.
On top of it all, Julia, Ardeline, and Stuart are incredible hosts. They are friendly, responsive, and immensely helpful.
Julia and Stuart have thought of everything. Sadly we had to cut our visit short a day, the access to a phone and the GPS were invaluable. I encourage fellow travelers to take the time and have Stuart show you the ins and outs of their property. We can hardly wait to return.
The best place to stay in Aruba!!! The house is incredibly beautiful. No picture proves how wonderful you will feel there. The house does not lack anything - the hosts have thought of everything. House passed us without unnecessary formalities, but we felt extremely well briefed. I would recommend to anyone - rent a car (4x4 necessarily, Aruba is full of wild places) and this house, and you will feel what they mean real vacation!!!!!!!
Hi Maja, thank you for describing the cottage in your words. It's like you said you have to feel it there are no words to describe the peaceful nature there :) Glad you came and hope to have you back again some day. We have just bought another jeep for our rentals, so all of Aruba's wild places can be explored! Thanks again and all the best xox Julia
