“A slice of Heaven in Aruba”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I cannot say enough about how wonderful the North Shore Cottage was for our stay in Aruba. The location is quiet and serene. It's backyard is the desert with mountain biking, running and hiking trails to the ocean. The owners were so helpful and even have a book they have put together all about what to do in Aruba. The house is adorable and the perfect size for a family of four. I loved my morning runs on the trails along the coast. The cottage is close to everything, yet far enough away that at night you hear nothing and can see every constellation without the city lights! We hope to get back! Our two teenage daughters loved it too!

We vacationed for one week at the North Shore Cottage in Aruba and enjoyed our stay immensely. The cottage is situated in an ideal location, close to everything we wanted to experience. The best part about this cottage is that it is quaint, quiet and private. It truly is home away from home, with all the conveniences plus a few little extras that really add a wonderful touch to the whole experience.

The one thing that sets this place apart from any other vacation rental we stayed at is the detailed information book and map. Wow, exceptionally helpful and resourceful. Could not have chosen a better place to stay.

Nothing has been overlooked, the attention to detail is really incredible. From the mountain bikes, to the beach chairs, snorkelling gear and on and on. This place is a must to stay at if you ever have the opportunity to travel to Aruba. You will not be disappointed.

My family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed here, just arriving home yesterday. This rental is so much better than the description and photos. The cottage is the last home on the street with endless, unblocked views of the nature preserve. The peace and quiet were unparalleled. The owners have provided everything needed for a great vacation; beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers, an extremely well stocked kitchen, and superbly friendly service. We also rented the owners Jeep, which met us at the airport. Having a Jeep allowed us to explore the entire island and travel well away from the typical tourist traps. The owners have provided numerous suggestions for the best beaches, best restaurants, stores, etc. and their suggestions were spot on. Our list of favorites: Off-the-beach snorkeling at Boca Catalina, boogie boarding at Andicurri Beach, and just enjoying the sun, sand and turquoise waters of Baby Beach. Rent with Julia and Sjoerd and you can bring your sunscreen, bathing suit, and relax knowing they have everything else covered.

I was a bit worried that my daughter and girlfriend wouldn't like staying here, however I worried for nothing. The pictures are just as it is, the host is wonderful. I can hardly wait to come back.

“Awesome Place to Stay!”

My friend and I greatly enjoyed our stay in Aruba! The cottage was wonderful! I highly recommend it! We enjoyed renting a car and exploring the island. We enjoyed exploring the desert around the cottage, and it only takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to the closest beach. (That beach is rocky so it's not for swimming, but it's very cool.) We enjoyed using the beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach boards, etc. There was also a dog that came by every morning named Foxy. She's a friendly dog and we even took her (or maybe she took us :) on a 2 hour walk one day. For food, I recommend Moomba Beach Club, the restaurant on the beach next to Moomba (I can't remember the name),the Buccaneer, and a Taste of Belgium. Everywhere we ate was good. We went to Baby Beach, Rodgers Beach, Boca Grande, Boca Catalina, Arashi beach, Eagle beach, and Palm beach. Boca Catalina had very good snorkeling. Baby beach was really nice and calm, and snorkeling was pretty good there. Eagle beach is much, much less populated than Palm beach and is just as beautiful. We rented ATVs through Kini Kini, rode horses with La Rancho Ponderosa and went skydiving with Aruba Skydive. I highly recommend all of these companies. Hope you enjoy your stay in Aruba as much as we did!
