“The Happy Island”
Reviewed September 3, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

It was absolutely amazing! My guest and I had a wonderful time! Definitely a place I would visit again! The Yellow Cunucu villa was exactly as pictured, very clean, Andrea, the grounds keeper was very nice. The only issue for my quest and I was that we were unable to flush toilet paper down the toilet other than that there were no other issues. The villa is up to date and the location is only minutes from EVERYTHING, beach, shopping, restaurants, etc. It truly lives up to its name "The Happy Island"

Dear Arlisia, this is our first review lower than 4 stars since we started renting, so we first apologies for your inconvenience and less than satisfactory stay. There were indeed some issues with the septic caused by excessive toilet paper usage and rain. We directly solved the problems as I understood from our staff. The heavy rain during your stay caused some ants to come in the house, which, although we regularly spray, sometimes happens in the Caribbean when it rains (which fortunately is almost never :) on Aruba). We did provide some items so you could spray the ants. Its never a good idea to leave items outside in front of any house, but if you would have told me during your stay, we could have reviewed the security footage. Again we sincerely apologies for your less than satisfactory experience, which really impacts us. In the future, if our staff does not satisfactory resolves your problems, please contact us directly so we can provide an upgrade or other compensation.

“I'll Be Back!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The size of the house was perfect for us, it was actually a lot bigger than expected. It was only minutes from the beaches, resorts and shopping areas by car. The neighborhood was quiet and well kept. Tommy was great and took care of all our needs quickly . It was really nice that the house had a washer and dryer since we were there for ten days. I loved not having to pack dirty clothes. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook a meal for me and my friends. The Yellow Villa was a nice place to call home during my vacation, I may never stay at a resort again when I go to Aruba!! I will definitely be renting a Villa from Ursula and Rudger again.

“Just right!”
Reviewed March 27, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Cute little house! Perfect for our stay since we were out and about everyday. Cute sit in area behind the house, appears private, but we didn't use it unfortunately because the groundskeeper lives right next to the sit in area and we didn't want to disturb him. The front door had some small openings and ants would come in sometimes, but not so bad, we were told to keep our food in the fridge and I'm glad we did! Towels and toiletries and laundry area are provided. Shower was funky, it was either too hot or cold, but we made due. Area is a quick drive to the beach and downtown.

“Just Great”
Reviewed April 14, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Cunucu Villa was just the right place for our stay, everything was just as shown on the pictures. Enough space to accomodate around 8 to 10 person, clean and neat, with a spacious kitchen, we felt right at home.
Owners are very attentive, neighborhood is quiet and nice, having a car highly recommended.
The one less point we had was that there is a community pool, but this is very close located to the house.
