This place was a really lucky find. Savaneta is a quiet and peaceful suburb away from the tourist centres of Aruba.
A beautiful lagoon is directly across the street and there's snorkelling gear on hand, if you don't have your own. The sun sets out over the ocean and it's an amazing place to sit with a beer.
There are four different spaces that Alessandra, Maria and their family have to rent out. We were in one at the back of the property that had a small living area, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. It's all very simple, but a very comfortable space. We spent all of our time outdoors in the hammocks or on our private couches. Just a heads up that this place - like many in Aruba - only have cold water. In the hot climate though, it wasn't hard to get used to.
Our only issue was that we had to keep the windows closed because of mosquitoes and the air conditioner was very loud. We got used to it, though!
There's a couple of restaurants within walking distance so if you don't have a car, you'll be okay (although it's definitely easier to get around in a rental).
The family were so kind and helpful, but also kept their space and gave us our privacy. They were the perfect hosts.
Thank you and we hope to be back again soon!
