About Julia de Ruijter

Hi there,

I'm Julia and together with my husband Sjoerd own the North Shore Cottage here on Aruba. If you have any questions or would like to make a reservation, please feel free to send me an e-mail. Thanks for your interest.

Sunny regards,

Julia

Julia de Ruijter purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Julia de Ruijter chose Noord

We built the cottage in this beautiful area of Seru Pela on the island's North Shore because of the unique natural setting and close proximity to the hotel area and beautiful beaches.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The best place to stay in Aruba!!! The house is incredibly beautiful. No picture proves how wonderful you will feel there. The house does not lack anything - the hosts have thought of everything. House passed us without unnecessary formalities, but we felt extremely well briefed. I would recommend to anyone - rent a car (4x4 necessarily, Aruba is full of wild places) and this house, and you will feel what they mean real vacation!!!!!!!

BEautiful

  • 5 of 5

Had a safe an enjoyable stay at the Cottage. Truly a place to unwind and just BE. Highly recommend to anyone wishing to escape the buzz of resort areas. Close enough to them to enjoy the beautiful beaches yet far enough in the distance not to be disturbed.

Lots of great memories for us in Aruba. Love to return again.

Thanks for providing a unique space and setting.

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time staying in the North Shore Cottage. The owners leave a very thick, detailed guide for you so you know exactly where is good to eat, sight see, etc. (as well as helpful info about driving, parking) This was incredibly helpful and made us feel good about venturing all over the island instead of sticking to the resort area. We also rented their 2008 Jeep Wrangler, which made getting around the island a breeze (they parked it at the airport for us, and we left it there when we flew out). The Garmen GPS they provided got us everywhere we wanted to go, easily. The house is fully equipped with everything you need... and a sweet little white puppy greeted us several mornings on the porch! The house faces the desert, instead of the street (you actually drive up onto the back side from the street). Would definitely stay here again!

Amazing!

Perfect vacation! Great location (private but near the high rise hotels). Jeep rental is a must! Great way to experience the island and comes with a cell phone and garmin that was vital. We will be back again this year!

I cannot say enough good things about North Shore Cottage. It has it all. Smooth easy booking, excellent contact time and communication threw out the booking process and it just gets, easier from there. Once you arrive be sure to check out the guide book that comes with the cottage. It will save you a ton of research time and give you great suggestions, tips and explanations of what the island has to offer.

The cottage is in an excellent location where you are far enough away from it all but close enough to enjoy everything. The owners have not left out any details in making their guests feel welcome and comfortable. Staying there you really have all the comforts of home ?

My family and I highly recommend the rental to any family of four or fewer.

We cannot wait to return!!!

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at North Shore Cottage in early December 2011. It was the best vacation EVER. I have been to Aruba before and knew that I wanted to stay along the more rustic north and east side but still be able to easily get to the busier active area. This cottage is the MOST perfect location for everything you want to do on the island! Julia is the sweetest most accommodating property owner that I have ever dealt with. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to have a wonderful vacation. I highly recommend renting this cottage for anyone who is looking for the perfect quiet and beautiful vacation spot!

Location

Car: necessary

The cottage is the perfect place to retreat to at the end of an active day.

It’s very quiet and peaceful here, perfect for nature lovers. Kids love it here, too, as they can freely play outside.

A beautiful landscape with wide open spaces, unobstructed views of sunrise as well as sunset. Empty beach nearby. Lots of trails, perfect for hiking, biking. Perfect for yoga, meditation in nature. Mother nature provides the fresh ocean breeze, the rocks, the boulders, the ponds and the trails, we provide you with the mountain bikes and surfboards.

Although it will absolutely feel like it, the normal world with all of its hustle and bustle isn’t that far away. The hotels are within 3-5 minutes driving, as are the Tierra del Sol Golf Course, Aruba Racquet Club, watersport activities, restaurants, casinos and the beaches at Palm Beach.
