“Wonderful”
Reviewed July 4, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We had a great vacation in Aruba! Rancho Azul -- the property was perfect for our family of four. The nature preserve behind the property really added to the charm of the house. The inside was spotless and spacious but our favorite "room" was the backyard. Thanks Clint and Shakira! Looking forward to returning next year!

“This place is absolutely breathtaking!!!”
Reviewed April 29, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We have just returned from our amazing trip to Aruba. We've booked Rancho Azul about 4 months ago, and could hardly wait. The villa exceeded our expectations...
As soon as we arrived in Aruba and went to get our rental car, Clint, the owner, came to say hello and to take us to the villa. It was probably a 15 minute drive from the airport, and it's pretty much a drive on a main road, with a few turns at the end. As we arrived at the villa we were completely awed. It's much bigger in real life than the pictures suggested, very blue (on the outside), with such rugged beauty all around... Inside it's very clean, smells nice, all the windows open to a wonderful and very welcome breeze, and all bedrooms have air conditioning (we've only needed to use it at night). The kitchen is well equipped, including a dishwasher which made cleanups easier, we also loved the gas stove! The living room area is very comfortable, the beds are too. The washrooms are good size, and have hot water, which was practically not used by us, as the cooler water was a nice relief. The pool area is like taken from a movie. Cacti all around, a few palms, nice loungers with cushions, two good sitting areas and a dining table with chairs made us spend most of our time outside there (aside from traveling around the island!). The pool is clean and pool floats are provided. It's everything you need from a vacation rental. If you come with young children, keep in mind that there is no shallow area in the pool. It's probably about 4 feet at the "shallow" end, and about 5 or so at the deep end. There are a number of lizards "living" in the backyard, but they are very small, and afraid of people. In my opinion they are adorable, but if you're afraid of reptiles, they shouldn't really bother you much, as they won't come close to a human. The villa is also equipped with a laundry room (we found the washer very convenient, but we've dried our things outside on a drying rack provided), and a number of additional equipment, such as beach chairs, beach umbrella (mind you that with the Aruban wind we didn't find much use for it), a crib (ask about a mattress, because I didn't pay attention to whether it was there), and coolers for food/drinks. There were also an iPod dock provided, a computer with Internet, as well as a free Wi-Fi connection for phones, laptops and iPads. Traveling with teens we found those extremely useful! We've also encountered some mosquitoes in the evenings (nothing like Algonquin Park in Ontario, but itchy little buggers), so bringing some repellent is a good idea. We were told that neither mosquitoes nor any other bugs carry diseases in Aruba, so no worries about that.
Overall, Rancho Azul is an absolutely perfect place to spend your vacation in Aruba. It's located in a beautiful wild area (you will see some horseback riding and occasional jeeps driving by in the back, but those only occur twice in a day), very close to the high rise hotels, restaurants, shopping and stunning beaches. Clint was very helpful and welcoming, as well as ready to answer any questions or concerns we might have had throughout our stay.
