The day always started with a fresh and delicious breakfast. Jim and Shawna made great recommendations on places to visit and where to eat, they even kayaked us out... More

Jim, Shawna, the house, the dogs, the rooms, the neighborhood, the price, the breakfasts, the warm 81 degree water, the information, the close bus stop, the snorkeling being so close, were all perfect. I liked being picked up at the airport by a smiling face and taken to the airport with a smiling face. Any question was answered with a... More

Jim and Shawna are some of the nicest people you will meet. They are gracious, helpful, and genuine. My wife and I will definitely stay with them again. We liked Aruba and our stay with them so much, we extended for another week. As mentioned already, the snorkeling is fantastic from their house. So many fish you are swimming in... More

Wonderfully quiet neighborhood with beautiful, relaxing views away from the city traffic. Hosts were wonderful - very friendly and helpful. The ONLY reason for not wanting to give Paradise Found a total Five Star rating is the fact that I want to have a room available for our return trip!!!

My partner and I felt very welcomed. they give great advice especially for reasonable fun things to do. Across the street is access to one of the most beautiful reefs I have ever snorkeled.

My wife and I stayed at Paradise Found for part of our stay in Aruba. We had a great time. The owners, Jim and Shawna, are wonderful hosts. All of their restaurant recommendations were wonderful local spots that had much much better food than the resort area. They made us feel very comfortable and are truly kind people. Even after...

On our first trip to Aruba, my husband and I wanted to stay away from the low and high-rise hotel areas. We found Paradise Found and are so glad we did! Our own “private” beach, right across the street, proved to be our favorite on the entire island! There is a great dock about a 15 minute swim from the... More

My wife and I stayed at Paradise Found for five days in February-March 2009. This bed and breakfast is in a wonderful quiet neighborhood where there are very few tourists, and the place is just across a small dirt road from the beach where you can go swimming every day.
