After 4 great weeks in this beautiful and well kept home we had to leave and fly back to Amsterdam. We had a great time in this home away from home. Reading 6 books, several rounds of golf, having dinner at several good restaurants, walks on the beach we had to say goodbye to this home in paradise on the one happy island Aruba. We will be back in October 2016
I can't explain how wonderful everything was..from all the back and forth emails prior to us going,to the info Rosie gave at check in, to the beautiful house and property,the close access to beautiful beaches,all the lovely house extras, the tierra del sol area..we r anxiously thinking of a return trip next yr.Thanks to all at Happy Rentals.
This was our fifth villa rental in Aruba, and it was by far the best! the property was immaculate, and beautifully situated. There was a wonderful cross breeze through the house if you opened the front door and the sliders to the back, eliminating the need for air conditioning. Every day we were serenaded by trupiaals, mockingbirds and morning doves, who sat on the cacti in the back yard. We were also visited by several iguanas. The pool was perfect, and there's even an outdoor shower and extra bathroom in the poolhouse area which was very convenient. The bedrooms each have their own A/C so you can use them at night and not have to use the central air. The owners have a very detailed house manual so we never had to search for anything. They included at mobile phone for use while on the island which was very convenient. The management company (arubahappyrentals.com) is excellent, and made sure everything was in top shape and that any issues we had were addressed immediately.
You could walk to Malmok beaches if you wanted to, and its a few minute drive to Arashi. I could easily jog from the house to the beach area, which is very nice for jogging.
There is no guest pass for the Tierra del Sol amenities, but we had a spa day there anyways (and the facilities are free for the day as a result), and it was terrific. The restaurant there was also terrific, and had live music to boot.
