Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Oranjestad - Aruba Penthouse at Divi Resort

2 story penthouse, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Welcome to the Penthouse, a perfect vacation paradise for families, friends, honeymooners and couples! This beautiful 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath penthouse condominium contains everything you and your family would possibly need for a fabulous vacation just steps from gorgeous Eagle Beach. The Penthouse is located on the first class Divi Village & Golf resort and is just a few minutes leisurely walk through the resort to the most beautiful, yet uncrowded beach on Aruba, and is directly across from the resort's main infinity pool with swim up bar and water slides! In addition to its spacious and beautifully decorated interior, what makes the Penthouse completely unique is its totally private second floor terrace - it is the perfect spot on the island to watch the famous Aruban sunsets and relax in your own private jacuzzi! The private terrace is the largest at the Divi, and has breathtaking views of the golf course and ocean with a sunset view, connecting you effortlessly with the wonderful Aruban breezes and sunshine! It is attractively landscaped with local palms and plants, with comfortable upholstered seating areas, sunning lounges, hammocks, a shade trellis, a dining table which seats 10 comfortably, and a professional standard gas grill. And the terrace is directly accessible from the penthouse interior - unlike any other penthouse terrace at the Divi. From the upstairs living and bedroom area, simply walk out onto your private terrace and hop in the Jacuzzi, flop in a hammock or watch the sunset from your choice of several comfy couches with a beverage from the wet bar! The two levels of the Penthouse are connected with an interior spiral staircase, with exclusive elevator to the terrace as well. State of the art lighting makes the evenings on the Penthouse terrace especially wonderful!

Steps from the pool and beach! The penthouse is a short 1 minute stroll from the main infinity pool at the Divi with swim-up bar, cafe and children's areas with water slide. Spectacular Eagle Beach is less than a 5 minute walk or you can hop on the free golf cart shuttle that the Divi runs constantly around the resort which you can pick up right outside the door. The penthouse is stocked with everything you need to enable you to just show up, unpack your swimsuit and hit the beaches! There is a fully stocked “beach closet” with coolers, beach toys and accessories (chairs & floats) for your use.

Because the Penthouse is located in a first class full service resort and not just a 'condo complex' you have the peace of mind knowing you will be taken care of plus all the added extras you won't get from staying at a non-resort property! The penthouse local manager will also take great care of you, can do pre arrival grocery shopping, and will make sure everything about your stay is perfect!

In addition to two spacious ensuite bedrooms with luxury bedding and decorated with local art, the first floor of the penthouse has a large and comfortable living, dining room and fully equipped kitchen, which open onto two balconies with seating overlooking the golf course and a lovely stream. It is a wonderful area for birdwatching! There is also a small office with full size computer, free internet and a printer for your use! Wander up the spiral staircase from the living room and you will arrive in the upstairs 'great room'. It is a wonderful entertaining space with a flat screen TV, wet bar with refrigerator, interesting décor and furniture. You will find the third private bedroom upstairs, with a comfy king bed as well as a full bath with rain shower!

The master suite has a king bed, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, large marble master bath with double granite sinks, double water jet rain shower with massaging wall jets (!) and separate toilet and bidet room. The second bedroom has a king sized bed, which is convertible into two twin beds upon request, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, and private bath with rain shower.

Everything is included in your stay! The Divi Owners Residences at the Divi Links Resort are newly constructed, luxury condominiums which enjoy the full benefits of the Divi Resort including restaurants, golf, tennis, fitness centre, swim up pool bar, etc. The beach has beach huts and loungers free to our guests. Unlike at other condos for rent on Aruba, you won't have to lug your own chairs to the beach or pay to rent them every day. Just bring your towel (also provided free by the Divi) and cooler (which we provide)! The nine hole golf course is exceptionally well maintained, with weekly tournaments and specials and you can also take lessons. Additionally, there are 5 tennis courts, non motorized water sports, a fitness center and a rock climbing wall. Windows on Aruba is renowned for gourmet cuisine and romantic views. There are several more casual dining options at the Resort as well.

About Elizabeth Baird

We fell in love with Aruba, its people and way of life from our first visit! I am an American from Kentucky, and my partner is Dutch, and spent his formative years living on neighboring Curacao. The Aruban culture welcomes and embraces everyone who is prepared for the easy life and friendship. We enjoy the Caribbean carefree lifestyle and also the European side of the culture, which influences the cuisine and arts. Our best memories are dancing to live local bands on the pier at Bugaloo, and to fabulous Cuban and Latin bands at Tropical downtown. We also love watching world class kite surfers at the Fishermans' huts at sunset. We have had some wonderful times at the Penthouse already, the deck is a romantic, wind cooled spot for cocktails and a great place to entertain a large group. As we currently live in London, we are best placed to use email to either answer questions or arrange a call.

Elizabeth Baird purchased this condo in 2010

Why Elizabeth Baird chose Oranjestad

We love the Divi Resort amenities, and beautiful Eagle Beach. You can walk for several miles up the beach, past sea turtle nesting areas and the sunsets are incredible from the terrace and balconies. Although all beaches on Aruba are gorgeous, we chose the low rise resort area due to it being much less crowded than the high rise hotel areas. We also chose this property over other nearby condo options because of all the extras that you get being part of a world class resort that you don't get a just a condo complex. At the Divi resort there are several pools, and if inclined you can play golf, tennis, wind surf, rock climb, and sea kayak. There are several restaurants and bars on the property as well. There is the Alhambra casino at the Divi or you are 5 minutes away from your choice of casinos at the high rise hotels and plenty of live music. Grocery stores are a 2 minute car ride away. We looked at several other condo options and the Divi's combination of amenities and facilities and proximity to the beach were unsurpassed. We think you will love it too!

What makes this condo unique

We DO NOT use a generic managment company to manage the Penthouse and your vacation. We like to share our home with like minded guests and provide a unique personal experience. We have a local friend/manager on the island to answer questions, help with arrangements, do pre-arrival grocery shopping, and assist you on the ground with whatever you may need. You will be well taken care of by us and the Divi! As this is a full service resort and not just a condo complex, you have all the added extras that you won't get from staying at condos!

Amazing Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with and her property was beautiful. The penthouse was well stocked with everything we needed and more. There was plenty of space for the adults and kids to spread out and not feel that we were on top of one another. Our favourite part (in addition to the fun sunglass collection by the front door!) was the terrace. We enjoyed the hot tub and the beautiful seating areas.

Re Divi property - I think that the Divi main Pool is in need of some updating as a number of the tiles in the pool were missing. That said, it was otherwise kept well and very clean.

Elizabeth was extremely responsive and helpful - we really appreciate all of her help and advice (and the doctor recommendation for our daughter!). Thanks Elizabeth and Jaap!

Everything else will pale in comparison!

  • 5 of 5

I have read over the reviews that have been done to date and say "ditto". We had a fantastic 2 week stay and now can't imagine staying anywhere else! We felt completely at home and wanted for nothing. Our 6 year old loved the slide at the pool and the organized activities.

Wonderful Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic is the word that comes to mind when I think about this condo. My husband, I and another couple stayed in this condo on our first trip to Aruba, and Elizabeth and Jaab were wonderful in making sure that our vacation was great!!! They sent a detailed description of everything about the condo and Aruba from suggestions of places to eat, things to do, detailed instructions on checking in, and instructions on getting to and from the airport.

The terrace views are beautiful, and the inside of the condo is also beautifully decorated and has a lot of room for 6 people and more. I don't think there is anything that you would need for your trip that isn't in this condo. Elizabeth and Jaab have certainly thought of everything!! The grounds of the condo are also exceptional. We loved the infinity pool and the ocean is only a short walk away. We spent some of our time at the pool and some of our time on the beach because both are beautiful!! My husband and I also played golf, and the pro shop was very helpful in making sure we had golf clubs available.

Thank you so much Elizabeth and Jaab for helping make our vacation so enjoyable!!! When we go back to Aruba, I really hope your condo is available, because I would definitely love to stay here again!!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Words can't describe the wonderful time we had at this condo! This three bedroom condo had all the comforts of home (even a glass full of reading glasses at the computer center)! The condo inside with its chic furnishings and unusual local art work combined with the outside views from the balconies and terrace...we hated to leave it. Tennis clinics are three days a week and we enjoyed playing golf with Donald Ross, the Scottish golf pro and he gave us a great deal with our lesson, 9 holes and rentals!The infinity pool was wonderful and each day I enjoyed swimming in the pool and the ocean! Thanks Elizabeth for all the tips for a much needed get away!!!

Owner's Response: Sounds like you all had the perfect mix between active and relaxing vacation! We are glad you all like our taste in art, we love to support local artists which is where all of the art has come from. We hope to have you all back again next year, have a great rest of 2015! Best, Elizabeth and Jaap

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations. The decoration reflects both thought and imagination. It is in a quiet area with lovely balcony views. We enjoyed the terrace with its private jacuzzi and grill where we cooked one evening. It is extremely well stocked with everything that could possibly be needed and the owners and manager were immediately responsive to our every question. We have stayed in a variety of condos and have never experienced one with an owner as helpful as this one. Having groceries delivered to the condo before we arrived prevented us from having to devote time to that chore. The owner made some recommendations for activities and restaurants and they proved to be exactly what we had hoped. We would recommend the Off Road Jeep adventure for anyone who would like to see the wilder side of Aruba. Yemanja Restaurant in the downtown area is delightful and definitely our favorite dining experience on the island. We certainly hope to return to this bit of paradise.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to help you two couples plan your Aruba trip, and to provide you with a wonderful place to relax in the sun! It is hard to go wrong on Aruba, but we do have our favorite places and activities, glad you all enjoyed them as well. Next time you will have to try a few more! Have a great year, Elizabeth and Jaap

Location

Car: recommended

Our penthouse has breathtaking views across the beautiful Divi Golf Course to the ocean! From our private terrace you can watch magnificent sunsets in the evening and in the morning watch the cruise ships come in. We are approximately 2 minutes from the main pool and a 5 minute walk to the beach - or take the free Divi shuttle to the beach which stops just outside the penthouse! Unlike the other condo rentals on Aruba, the Divi provides nice beach huts and loungers to all guests free of charge! Just bring your towel and cooler!

Other Activities: The beach and pools at the Divi resort are gorgeous and uncrowded, a vast difference from the high-rise hotel area. Our favorite days are early morning walks on the beach and hanging out on the terrace at sunset with friends or having a romantic evening listening to music and grilling out with just the two of us!

Golf: The Divi Resort has a first class 9 hole course that is rarely crowded and professional golf instruction. There are weekly tournaments and promotions at the lively clubhouse!
