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! Our roomy and luxurious 2 story Penthouse contains everything you would possibly need for a fabulous vacation just steps from gorgeous Eagle Beach! 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, unlike any other penthouse terrace at the Divi, our terrace is directly accessible from the penthouse. From the upstairs living 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 are connected with an interior spiral staircase, and we have our own private 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 stroll or you can hop on the free golf cart shuttle that the Divi runs constantly right outside our door. We have also tried to stock the penthouse with everything you might need to enable you to just show up, unpack your swimsuit and hit the beaches! We have 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! Our 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 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.
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.

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 our home 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!
