About The Owner

We are John and Janet Knox of Pylesville, MD. We have three children, Samantha (23), Joey (21) and Cole (18). We live in a very rural area on the Mason Dixon line on a couple hundred acres of farmland and woods. We enjoy dirt bikes, sports, jet skis, fishing, and the beach. We just purchased a second vacation home in Jaco, Costa Rica. Please see vrbo 477704 for details!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Palm Beach

We visited Aruba in 2007 to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary. We had travelled all over the Caribbean, Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, and had been thinking about purchasing a vacation home, and Aruba fit all our requirements - stable government, safe, beautiful and easily accessible. We looked at houses of all types and prices but knew the minute we saw this one that it was the one for us!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! Everything we need is within walking distance, so we don't have to worry about finding a parking space or being too drunk to drive home from Moomba Beach Club! The house is open and inviting and clean and has everything you need for a relaxing and fun vacation.

Great house but be careful!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this great house last week. beautiful house, great accommodations and very close to everything. Three couples, we were on vacation and were ready to begin a much needed time in the warm sun. But on the Second night we were robbed. Someone broke into the house while we were sleeping and actually came into our rooms while we were sleeping and started to clean us out. If it hadn't been for one of our friends waking up, they would of gotten everything. They did get two I Pads and a couple hundred dollars cash. we continued our vacation but we were violated and mentally scared. Be careful no matter where you stay!

Owner's Response: We are very sorry your vacation was marred by crime. We have tried our best to make the house secure by adding bars to most of the windows and locked gates and a security system, but it seems to be impossible to keep out someone who is willing to go to great lengths and great risk to get in. It is very sad, but you are right; there is no place that is 100% safe, even when you are on vacation on a beautiful, friendly island.

Great Owner & Location

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Janet's Palm Beach house. Great location, about 2-3 blocks to the beach through the goat path. The location is just behind the Radisson Hotel/Marriott. Easy walk to beach, only takes 10-15 minutes. Great big drive way for car rental. The property is just as the pictures show it. The house itself will fit 4-7 people comfortably. The house was clean and very secure. Key pad entry so no key needed was great. Huge kitchen too. The location is ideal and right by everything. We rented a car and like I said the drive way was perfect and safe. I would def rent this house again anytime. There were plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and all kitchen utensils and supplies. Even a washing machine to do laundry.

Janet is also great to communicate with. Our flight was cancelled a day because of a snow storm and Janet did not mind at all that we came a day late and left a day early. That was a huge stress relief. She was extremely nice and understanding. She also always replied very fast to any emails I had or questions.

All in all a great location, house, and owner. We were very happy with this!

Our Favorite Rental

  • 5 of 5

Recently we had the pleasure of staying at Janet’s Palm Beach villa. We had a fabulous time and even got to the point where leaving felt as if we were leaving our very own home. This was our third Aruba rental and definitely our best. If anyone out there is having reservations about renting, do not worry. Janet's home is great.

Everything in the home is exactly as you would expect it to be. The pictures do a great job of setting your expectations and the owners do an even better job of filling in any blanks. The attention and service provided by Janet was the best that we have experienced. Every email we sent was answered surprisingly fast with not only the requested information but also any related info she thought would be of use. She presented us with a clear timeline of when payments should be made and various other pieces of information (check in instructions, directions, etc.)

We always rent a jeep because we like to explore but if you plan to stay in the Palm Beach area a vehicle is not a necessity. Both the beach and nightlife is within walking distance of the home as well as the bus route in case you want to venture out further. However, I will say if you plan on using the beach chairs and coolers available at the home walking may not be the best idea.

After picking up the rental car we followed the directions and had no problem finding the house. We unloaded and unpacked before stocking up at Ling's. We picked up breakfast, lunch and snack foods for the week, along with beverages both alcohol and non. The home has everything you will need whether doing light snack prep or cooking a full blown meal. The coolers are great for Arashi sunsets.

The home sleeps 7 or 8 but since we were a party of two the very comfortable bed in the Master was enough, but for one occasion when his snoring became too much of a nuisance he got to test out the bed in one of the other rooms. I was told it was also very comfortable. Each room has an air conditioner but we eventually decided they weren't necessary as the home stays cool at night and we were never there during the day.

Great location, accommodations and property owners; Janet and her Villa have set the bar extremely high for any future rentals we may book. Then again unless this rental is unavailable I'm not sure we would have any reason to go with another rental.

(This review was much longer and far more glowing but had to be edited due to VRBO only allowing 2500 characters)

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for anyone! We had three generations including a toddler and it was great for all ages. The enclosed patio was a fantastic place to unwind and safe for a little one. Great location, walking distance to the beach, restaurants, nightlife, watersports, etc. without dealing with the chaos of Oranjestad. Full size kitchen was spotless and fully equiped. Boogie boards, snorkeling gear and the good chairs are there. Janet's notebook was full of great info. The men booked a fishing trip with MahiMahi at the marina in Oranjestad. Our only mistake was goingfishing at the end of the vacation...we didn't have enough time to eat all the fish that they caught! Highly recommend them and you can book them directly to save money.

All you need for the perfect vacation here are your clothes, food and plenty of time because you will not want to leave! We already have started our to-do list for our next trip here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments! Glad you had a good time. We are wishing we were sitting on the patio right now instead of being here in the cold, rainy weather! We look forward to hosting your return visit in the very near future!

This house was a typical beach house, very cute on the outside and clean on the inside. If you choose to stay here, be aware that the water heater may need to be turned on when you arrive. It is close to the beach, has a great driveway, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are roomy. The owner was very helpful when we emailed with questions, as well as, very prompt with her replies.
