Exclusive use of the whole house, in a local neighborhood, perfectly positioned to explore both the natural, the native and the more touristy sides of Aruba. PLEASE READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING

If If you prefer the tranquility of a blue lagoon over crowded beaches in tourist areas, then my house may just be your ticket to a perfect getaway. Quiet neighborhood,no heavy nor disturbing car traffic in the vicinity. Basic amenities.... (please see amenities tab and house rules)
You have exclusive occupancy of my home for your stay. I travel a lot and I often take care of other houses for a living so I decided to rent it when I am not staying there. (Sometimes you may also find me next door, at a cabin next to the house)
Everything in the house has been recycled, or was purchased 2nd hand, or given by good friends... so if you are NOT looking for luxury and frills, and you want to taste the "local flavor" and the "simple life" without TV... I am sure you will feel at home!
Air-conditioned ONLY in bedroom. Bed linen, one set of hand,bath and beach towels provided per person per week. There is a kitchen (with kettle, toaster, refrigerator, stove top, microwave, dish towels -if you absolutely need paper towels you can always get them at the nearest minimarket-,small electric oven..), living room, 2 bathrooms (NO HOT WATER, sorry...only "island temperature" water), a wraparound porch and a nice shady place in the morning under a local tree.......
I allow the usage of US$ 10.00 per day for water & electricity. This is more than sufficient when using water and AC wisely (meaning; keeping bedroom's windows and doors closed when turning the AC on and turning the AC off when leaving the house). If you use over that amount, it needs to be paid cash at your departure.
Regarding WIRELESS INTERNET, for a FEE, I can facilitate this service. Please ask me for details if you wish to have internet service.
I recommend renting a car, it is hot and windy here and if you really want to see the island and all the beaches it is the best choice.If you choose not to do so, there is public transportation (that will only take you to downtown and the more "touristic" areas). The nearest bus stop is within walking distance (800 yrds). There is a small supermarket 1/2 a mile away and some restaurants as well. The quiet, very local "Nautical Club" restaurant is 2 blocks away!
I have some beach chairs, small coolers and snorkeling equipment available if you want to try the neighborhood beaches.
I try to be flexible with your check in/out times, but if I have "back to back" guests I will need time for cleaning. We can always try to make it work for both parties!

You have exclusive occupancy of my home for your stay. "MI casa es su casa". I travel as much as possible and I also take care of other homes for a living, those were the reasons why I decided to rent the house while I am not there.
