Our families purchased the building lot at Tierra Del Sol in 2004 and it took 4 years to build our home. During the process we discovered the true meaning of 'Island Time'. Everyone needs to discover this for themselves.

Joe Stephens purchased this estate in 2008

We had been traveling to Aruba for 15 years and just love the Aruban people, the pace of life, the beaches and the golf course at Tierra del Sol. When they opened the Bella Vista lots to allow for custom built homes we jumped at this chance and have enjoyed it ever since..

Custom Built with a classic Mediterranean style exterior with a modern open living interior this 4 bedroom, with study, home features 2 grand master bedroom suites and two other ample bedrooms with 4 1/2 baths, including a pool bath with shower, private pool with fountain and waterfall. Great rooms (living areas) on each level with seating for all your guests and wonderful ocean and scenic panoramic views. Fully equipped Kitchen with seating for 10. Spa and fully equipped weight room available at additional cost.

I stayed with my friends at this amazing property March 21th thru 29th,2009. The lay-out is perfect for 2 families,one extended family or a large group of friends like the ones that I traveled with. You could certainly eat out at a different restaurant every night within minutes of this home & experience great island food, but between the fully equipped kitchen & wonderful grill available we just couldn't pull ourselves away from this relaxing home to eat out very much. It was just too tempting to lounge pool side as the sun gently set! All of the bedrooms are very large with amazing views. The views of the lighthouse was my personal favorite! It goes without saying that this home would be a golfer's dream, as you could golf every day here & then relax in your own pool or hit one of the many clean beaches.
I did walk to a beautiful nearby beach more than once, but to experience the complete island you are going to need a car. I loved taking daily walks every morning & everyone that I passed was so friendly I just felt like I lived here. We went snorkeling & I highly recommend it. I have been many times in Hawaii & there you really have to be concerned with high waves. But not in Aruba!! I was amazed at how peaceful & calm the water seemed to be every day! Which makes snorkeling & diving a dream.
I did have a few questions before I arrived just to make sure that I brought with me the things that I needed & the owner always responded very quickly to my e-mails, which really gave me peace of mind.
All I can say is that the 8 days went way too quickly & to this day I wished that I had stayed for 10 days (at least)!! It is just well worth it, but I just wouldn't take the chance of staying any place other than this home because staying here was just such a big part of why this was our groups dream vacation. I hope you make it your's too, unless it's a week that I want to come back!!

Had a wonderful time here

I couldn't ask for more. The golf course is about a 5 minute walk (or 2 minute drive) from the house. (Prepare for some strong breezes to test your skill.) The pool is wonderful with plenty of comfortable chairs for all my friends. We hosted a family get-together one evening for 14 people (some from the Island and some from another hotel) and had plenty of room in the kitchen to cook, grill outside, and seat everyone for dinner. The bedrooms and baths are well appointed. The seating areas are designed to meet all desires (leather furniture, upholstered with ottomans, or Tommy Bahama style). Everyone had their choice based on what they needed for backs and legs after enjoying the beaches, golf, and life in Aruba. Can't wait to return.

FANTASTIC! Visiting with a group of six for Carnivale and we LOVE it! Amazing furnishings--original art, silk rugs, leather recliners, flat screens, Tommy Bahama furniture! WOW! Comfortable and inviting; stylish and relaxing. Plenty of room for the group to gather and also plenty of room for privacy. The Master Suites are beyond anything we hoped for. The view of the desert landscape is in amazing contrast to the beautiful blue of the pool! I am currently staying here and nothing posted by Disappointed makes sense. The photos on-line are absolutely up to date, the decorating is a delight. The reclining leather sofa and chairs are sumptuous and the place is absolutely awesome! I was checking availability for a return visit and totally surprised when I saw this; there must be a mistake!
Owner's Response: Glad you're having a great time and tank you for the wonderful review. Hope you can return for another visit soon.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you and your group had such a great time. Carnival is such a wonderful family experience in Aruba. All the parades and wonderful sites and bands playing. Hope you'll be back next year.

Disappointed

  • Review Submitted: 01-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
This is listed as a luxurious estate villa and I was expecting just that. What the reality was a beautiful house in desperate need of updating. The furniture was uncomfortable and old. The kitchen was so run down that when I opened the drawer it completely came office. The cushions outside where dirty and shot. The lounge chairs were uncomfortable as we're the mattresses The dryer broke twice, the dishwasher sounded like there were nails in it and the garbage disposer leaked, the pool lights don't work, and so on. The bright spot was Clifton who worked hard to fix things and help out. The location is perfect and the tierra del sol as a whole is fantastic. I have been to Aruba seven times and five of those visits were villa rentals in tierra del sol. I gave this three stars because of the location and it is a beautiful house with room for nine of us. I certainly think it is misrepresented.
Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you were disappointed. It's amazing how we went from this review on January 9 2014... "THE BEST VACATION RENTAL WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN!!!!!!!!. Let me start by saying that our family rents a house in Aruba every year for a family vacation. Up until now, we never liked a house enough to return to it. This home will be our vacation rental each year that we are able to come back. The home is comfortable, clean, safe and secure. The property manager, Clifton, is personable, helpful and genuinely a very nice man. The owner, Joe, was kind enough to change our travel dates when our incoming flight was cancelled. This way we did not have to shorten our trip. From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, we felt AT HOME. We travel with our family of 7. There was plenty of room for all of us." ... to your review in less then a month. It's hard to please everyone, but we will continue to give it our best effort possible.
