We really enjoyed our stay. The house was exactly as advertised and didn’t disappoint. The house is located in an average residential neighbourhood and was very well maintained, spotless, and private. The nights are very quiet around the house so getting a good nights rest was no problem. The owner’s parents were on hand for our arrival; were super friendly and attentive; took the time to explain everything to do with the house; and arrived each afternoon to clean the pool, all of which we greatly appreciated. We really liked the homey feel as we’re not resort people and like the local vibe. I would strongly recommend renting a vehicle as the house is a bit far for walking to downtown Oranjestad. We’ve been to Aruba many times and have found that irregardless of location a car is a definite asset so renting one didn’t bother us at all. From the house getting to all parts of the island by car was easy. A grocery store is located very close by so picking up things was a snap. The one thing that I thought was awesome was sitting in the backyard by the pool and watching flocks of wild parakeets in the trees at the back of the property. If your looking for a very reasonable priced rental that is worry free this is it. I would definitely rent this house again.
For the uninitiated traveler to Aruba, there can be some apprehension when booking a private residence, as opposed to any of the reputable resorts on the island. These concerns do not apply to Marvin’s listing. The level of privacy afforded to guests staying at this property is unparalleled, which adds a whole new level of recreation to couples staying at the Aruba house. If you don’t feel secure in this house, I’m not sure what to tell you. Have you ever wanted to spend the week using an outdoor shower before your early morning swim in the saltwater pool? If so, this is the listing for you. The home is immaculately clean, the neighbors are extraordinarily welcoming and the level of professionalism is not something I’ve found in other Airbnb properties. Seriously…following the first day we felt like family and the local real estate agent and her husband were simply awesome. As an IT guy, the internet speed was better than what I get in Washington DC and all of the TVs were high definition, with open HDMI ports for all your streaming needs. I would buy this property if I didn’t have a life in the states. I want to go back and I’m jealous of any future guest to the property.
We very much enjoyed our stay here. We were one week here and another week in a resort. It was in close proximity to all that we wanted to do. It was very clean and everything was provided. Marvin, your parents are awesome and very accomodating!
THe house was perfect for my family!! Your Mother and Father were soo kind.. I felt as if they were my parents.
We rented the house for 7 days. Absolutely loved it. They were very polite and more than helpful.the back yard with pool was where we spent most of our time when we were not running about the island. Hopefully I'll be able to make it back there next year!
We stayed at this house with our two small kids (2 years old and 10 month old). The older one slept in a normal bed and for the baby Carla organized a baby bed. We were so lucky, one day before arriving the swimming pool had just been finished. We had our own private pool, which was pretty fun for the kids and for us in the evenings just to relax
The house is very clean and the place is quite, private, safe and the perfect place to explore the Island. It is very close to the city centre ( 5-10 min with a car).
Carla, Roland and Marvin are very friendy, helpful and they did everything to let us feel so comfortable. Thank you so much again.
I really do recommend this house and should we decide to visit Aruba again we will stay at this house again.

At the kitchen you have anything you could need to cook . The grill is great and so fast ! You have cable with English Spanish and Papiamento channels the neighborhood is safe and nice .
