Nogmaals dank voor het verblijf in jullie prachtige appartement! We hebben erg genoten van Aruba en het verblijf in Alto Vista. Als we nog eens op Aruba komen dan zullen we zeker weer langskomen!!
We stayed for a week with Inger and Francis. The apartment is exactly as described and pictured. It is brand new and is immaculate. Inger and Francis go out of there way to make sure you have a great time on your vacation. They recommend restaurants and beaches and are just very friendly. We were vacationing over Carnival and they invited us to sit with them and their friends to watch the parade of lights. Although we didn't find them in the crowd , we were able to get a great spot to watch the parade. Great time! You will need a rental car since the location is in a country/residential area that is not accessible by bus. The neighborhood they are in is in transition with some houses being built and some being renovated, so not all the houses are as new and/or as nice as their place, but it is a very safe and quiet neighborhood. We would definitely stay again.
A great stay, with some caveats:
Inger & Francis are great hosts, very friendly and helpful. They live in the house adjoining (the one in the photos), so they are very close by if you need anything.
The apartment is super clean and modern. The kitchen has better appliances and cutlery than we have at home! Ready for any kind of meal you want to make. Cable TV with 200 channels. The shower is huge (although there is no hot water, like in most places on the island).
The apartment is located on a quiet country road (you will need a rental car to get here).. so there is no traffic noise, although you will be woken up by the local roosters and stray dogs barking! The outside patio connecting the buildings is a lovely place to hang out.. unfortunately, that is the only place where the WiFi currently works.
This was a big disappointment - we thought the WiFi would work inside the apartment, but it does not. Even outdoors, you have to find very specific spots where it does work.
The apartment comes with snorkel gear, which is wonderful, saves you having to rent it. They also include 2 beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler. Very organized and thorough.
The windows are small, and with black film covering, to prevent the hot sun from coming in - this may be good or bad, depending on your disposition. The A/C is strong and worked well.. but if you just want natural air, the windows are difficult to prop open.
Overall it was a great experience, except for the WiFi.
You couldn't ask for nicer hosts than Inger & Francis. We did not regret skipping the whole stay-at-a-resort scene for even one moment. The apartment was modern, clean, and stylish, both indoors and outdoors. Lots of nice lighting, color schemes, and attention to detail. They provided a 3-ring binder of things to know (although I admit I didn't read it except to get the wifi password). We cooked our own breakfasts with the kitchen equipment provided and Inger's advice on the best grocery store. She even gave me a cup of cooking oil when I realized I'd forgotten to buy any.
We found it helpful to have a rental car when staying here, as it is a bit away from beaches, restaurants and such. (This has its advantages if you prefer a homebase that is peaceful between your adventures). There is a nice cooler ("ice chest") and beach towels that we made use of every day. Also 2 camping chairs, and snorkel gear (we didn't use those those but they were there if we wanted it).
Our hosts were very responsive with email and their English was great. I would recommend staying at Boleros Alto Vista to any of my friends who are lucky enough to get away to Aruba.
Conhecer ARUBA foi uma das melhores férias da minha vida e em grande parte isto foi possível pelo excelente acolhimento desde a reserva até o check out.
Este casal (Inger e Francis) é incrível e torço para que só recebam pessoas que realmente saibam apreciar a amizade, o carinho e a confiança que transmitem. O lugar é lindo, limpo, novo e aconchegante. A cozinha é bem equipada, o wi-fi funciona bem.
Ideal para casais em lua-de-mel ou para pessoas que precisam do silêncio para descansar.
Se o seu vôo for aos finais de semana, facilitará a vida deles e a sua para que façam o transfer do aeroporto até o "home sweet home", mesmo porque este serviço é uma cortesia e não uma obrigação deles,ok?
Estão dispostos a dar todo apoio e informações que precisarem. É um pouco distante do "point" mas a 300 m da casa tem uma locadora de carros e para quem gosta de viajar sem ficar preso a horários para alimentação dos hotéis em geral e horários para passeios que são inclusos nos pacotes esta é a melhor opção. Fui sozinha, aluguei um carro e conheci ARUBA inteira, porque já sabia que existem outras atrações e praias além de Palm Beach para ver e estar.
As pessoas em geral dirigem bem e dão informações precisas. Impossível ficar perdido por lá. Tem sinalização suficiente nas estradas principais, mas para encontrar endereços fora do centro ou ruas pequenas vc precisa de referências pq não existem tantas placas. Gostei tanto que pretendo voltar assim que for possível. ;)
Danki, Inger&Francis. Já estou com saudades!
Inger & Francis were excellent hosts. Possibly the most welcoming and nicest hosts we'll ever come across; from the constant help with questions/plans prior to our arrival to the sweet welcome gift basket they had on our dinner table. We really felt welcome and at home away from home. Their condo seemed newly built and had everything you could ask for, as well as being immaculately clean. The kitchen was excellent to have on our trip! I would highly recommend them to anyone wishes to feel truly welcome in Aruba.
We loved our stay at Boleros Alto Vista! The apartment is gorgeous and Inger and Francis are phenomenal hosts! They gave us wonderful recommendations for places to eat on the island that were unique and gorgeous! We highly recommend Boleros Alto Vista! If you are going to Aruba, this is a wonderful place to stay!
Ha sido una experiencia estupenda visitar Aruba, sus playas y su gente.
Inger y Francis, personas responsables en todo momento, desde el la negociación para la reserva, respuestas a tiempo y muy atentos como generosos, luego al momento de nuestro arribo a Aruba estuvieron pendiente en todo momento, nos proporcionaron toda la información que necesitábamos para llegar al sitio de hospedaje e incluso, la información general de lugares estratégicos para estar en Aruba y disfrutar.
Del apartamento debemos confesar que es mucho mas de lo que esperábamos, totalmente nuevo, ese olor a madera, nos sentimos como en casa, desde vajillas hasta sillas de playa, genial!.
Inger y Francis nos recibieron con presentes de bienvenida, un detalle muy especial, lo que hizo que nos sintiéramos bastante gustos y cómodos con nuestros anfitriones.
Realmente recomendamos a boleros alto vista, si quiere un lugar para sentirse en casa, en familia.
Onze ervaringen in dit appartement waren uitstekend.
Inger en Francis zijn buitengewoon vriendelijk en ze doen alles wat ze kunnen om het verblijf zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken.
De inrichting zonder meer van een hoge kwaliteit, alles wat nodig is voor een prettig verblijf is aanwezig.
Kortom wij hebben hier geweldig genoten en als we weer naar Aruba gaan zullen we zeker naar dit appartement teruggaan.
Inger and Francis are one of the BEST hosts we have worked with on Airbnb. They are super helpful, understanding, and accommodating to all of our needs. When we were first planning on our vacation to Aruba, we contacted the hosts and they were very easy to communicate with, always prompt to answer any questions we might have. Later after we made the reservation of their apartment, we found out that our dates needed to be changed. I contacted them, they immediately got back to us and said they would work with our new schedule without any fees. Some time later, something came up that we were unable to keep our original vacation plans and we had to cancel our reservation. Inger and Francis were so understanding of our situation, even helped us how to cancel the reservation. Their cancellation policy is strict, which means I would get 50% of the refund. After communicating through messages, Inger and Francis were so gracious to give 100% refund to us! We couldn't be happier to work with such wonderful hosts. They went above and beyond to help us, being so understanding every step of our vacation planning, and were so kind to give us full refund.
I am very sorry that we had to cancel our vacation this time that we didn't have a chance to stay with Inger and Francis. I couldn't give high enough recommendations to the hosts, they are the BEST! Thank you for everything!
