“Nice Rental in Residential Area”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This was a very nice rental in a residential area. The owner provided us with the address to get to the unit, but that was not enough detail (we stopped twice to get directions). First things first, to get there you travel up through downtown Orangestad toward California Lighthouse. Turn right near the high rise hotels where there is a Wendy's and McDonalds. Continue past Route 2, then turn left across from 32 Kudawecha. There is an electrical pole with a transformer on top that is leaning to the left here (on the left side of the road). If you get to the baseball field/school, or the sharp turn to the right, you missed it. After your left turn, take an immediate right and the house is the second on the right. There are faster ways to get here from the airport, but these are the easiest directions. Please note, Google maps this address to the south instead of to the north. If you use Google, you will end up at the school. Also, there are almost no street signs in Aruba and the house numbers are by area (not by street) and are somewhat random.

The owner was very nice and accommodating. We were even escorted to the grocery store on our first day. The outdoor area by the pool is the best and I spent much of my time at the apartment in a hammock. The inside of the apartment is nicely finished, although not luxurious. You won't find granite counters or top end appliances, but it was adequate for the four of us (we didn't spend much time in the apartment anyway). The stove was a little suspect, but did the job for when we needed it. If you plan to do a lot of cooking, this kitchen is probably not for you.

We loved staying in the residential area and would do it again. Note that this unit is not handicap accessible (there is a step up into the unit and the bathroom is not wheelchair accessible). This unit shares the pool area with another rental owned by the same owner, but we hardly even knew the other family was here. A car is a must here and the drive is about 10-15 minutes to get downtown/airport. This is an apartment, so towels (including beach towels), sheets and minimal cookware is provided, but that is about it. It is not fancy. It is very quiet here, and as I sit here by the pool, I hear the wind chimes, the wind, and some faint traffic. If you want to experience Aruba, this is an excellent place to do it.

“Cosy and comfortable”

We have stayed 4 days in the appartment. It rather small but comfortable place with good be, spacious enough for a couple. Airco is OK, enough space for clothing. Kitchen is efficient for breakfast, even dinner, since you will probably eat out as us you do not need more. Car is obligatory since it is out of out-going area, but to see island and visit beaches you need it anyway.
Landlady is very helpfull, her spanish is better than english, kind a cute.
