We enjoyed our stay at Stuart's cottage in Aruba. The location is perfect; residential but also secluded in the sense that it borders a natural preserve where you can enjoy a quite sunrise or sunset on the front porch. Restaurants and beaches are a 5 minute drive away! The amenities are up to date. I was surprised that there was no mosquitoes problems, bikes (but you can rent for a very reasonable price!) and no blinds on the windows. I would love to stay here next time we visit the island. Thank you Stuart for your hospitality and recommendations.

This place is a dream. We have always picked AirBnB over hotels. Howecer, we weren't sure what it would be a like staying in an AirBnB where hotels are king. But I can say that without a doubt that this was much better than any hotel stay. It was comfortable, relaxing and just minutes away from the beach. A rental car is probably needed. But you're going to want one if you like explore. There is a lot to see in Aruba. More than just a beach. So stay here and get out and explore.

We stayed at this cottage from March 25 – 29. Let me start by saying and end with saying that we would stay here again. Pros • Price was very reasonable. • There is a trail/road directly behind the property where you can hike and walk to the beach on the rough side of the island. This area is not for swimming. The views were spectacular. • The location was in a quiet suburb about a 10 minute drive to the hotel zone. It was wonderful to have a peaceful home base after busy days. • The cottage was quaint. It was very cute and we loved the hammock on the front porch. There was shade all day and it became a great place to relax. • There was plenty of space between the loft upstairs and the living area downstairs. If we had had kids with us we could have easily provided them with a bit of their own space. • Stuart was very responsive when we sent a message needing assistance. • The place was sparkling clean when we arrived. • The property was well equipped with everything we would need. Cons The windows were glass below and wooden louvers above and there are no screens to keep out the bugs and mosquitoes. We spent 30 minutes killing mosquitoes the first night – Stuart did come and “bomb” the place to help with the issue and provided us a flyswatter and electric tennis racket. Thank you for that! • The cottage is showing wear. The pictures on the website didn’t completely reflect how the place looks today. There is no computer and there was no product on the shelf as shown in the pictures. • The sink in the kitchen had a huge leak and the cabinets below were flooded. • The washing machine lid was rusted out and broken off. The washing machine would not empty water that was left in it from before we arrived. We couldn’t use it which was disappointing as this was one of the primary reasons we chose the cottage (less clothes/less luggage so we could wash what we had). • The pictures make it seem as if this cottage is far from other properties. The front of the cottage is close to a fence to separate it from another home directly next to it. This wasn’t a bad thing as much as a surprise. As I said before, we loved the front porch. Thankfully the neighbors were very quiet. As a 20 year traveler to the Caribbean, I recognize it can be very difficult to keep things looking nice. The environment on island is harsh causing quick wear and tear. As well, this trip was planned for last minute and I appreciated Stuart scrambling to get it ready for us. We emails regarding the things that need to be corrected and I have no doubt they will be remedied. We would stay here again. We loved the location and the size...

This cottage is at the end of a quiet street. We loved the location, great for morning runs to the beaches on the north shore. Yet, it's a short drive to Eagle Beach and other beaches are even closer by. The cottage is well appointed and the host and his team are very responsive. This starts from the moment you book until you're checked out. Great communication! We have been at this cottage twice and will be back.

The cottage was great. It was exactly as described on the site. It is away from the resort area's, and is extremely quiet and private. The staff was incredible and quickly answered any questions we had. The Garmin was so helpful and we managed to navigate around the Island with only a few wrong turns. I would love to return again Dee Fazio 11/5 - 11/9 2016
