Felt at Home
Had a wonderful stay at La Dolce Vita, Fulvia and her mother are wonderful host, we stayed in the Blue apartment, it was very clean, Fulvia was very accommodating when we asked for extra towels, minutes from beach, would highly recommend. Thank you Fulvia.
Very clean, spacious apartment.
We loved La Dolce Vita! Thank you Fulvia and Mom for a wonderful stay! The place was always kept clean. We loved the quietness of the area, so close to our favorite snorkeling beaches. We took advantage of the kitchen nearly every day. The high ceilings made the apartment feel very spacious. Fulvia and mom were so friendly and helpful to us.
Beautiful, quiet and clean
We enjoyed our 5 nights. There is a well-kept clean private pool in a walled area with 6 lounge chairs for sunning shared by the 3 apartments. You can walk to the ocean about a half mile away, it is a solid coral rock area, nice for viewing the sunset. The nearest sand beaches are a short walk north or south from that point - maybe 200 meters. We ate out 1 meal a day and did breakfast the other meal in the nice little kitchen. The bed was comfortable and there is warm water for the shower. The owner was very responsive and friendly. It is a good value and felt safe. There are nice breezes but we used the AC at times and especially for sleeping. We were there in early January. We would definitely stay again. It is the most interesting part of the island, lots of things nearby to do. You must climb the lighthouse. The center of the capital and the airport are only about 25 min. away by car.
Great location, very attentive hosts, clean property
We enjoyed every day of our vacation on the island. The house has a nice pool and a beautiful front yard. Our appartment was clean and had an air conditionerand hot water, perfect for 2 people. The hosts were very easy to communicate with, answering every email right away. They also helped us with arranging our rental car for a lower rate. The location of the house is great, very close to the best beaches on the island.
We had a wonderful vacation!
A lovely property! Quiet and peaceful stay, clean and attractive rooms, gorgeous gardens and pool!
I chose this apartment because of the location- near to Malmok and Arashi beach and away from the tourist areas further south. The second reason was the reviews. Everyone raved about how kind and considerate the owner, Fulvia, and her mother were. They were right! I loved that we stayed in a residential area that was quiet, comfortable, and felt completely safe. The rooms were clean and airy, and perfect for two people. The chairs and table outside our bedroom doors were the perfect place for our breakfast every morning, and then it was a matter of minutes and we could be down the street to Malmok beach to snorkel. I have never stayed in a place that had housekeeping. Every day we returned to the house being sweep and straightened, and a bouquet of fresh flowers from the gardens. We only tried the pool once, because we were there to snorkel, but it is lovely and I was enthralled with the gardens around the house. In four days we literally drove to every point on the small island. Please go up to the beaches above the California lighthouse! The huge boulders and crashing tide pools are completely different than any of the beaches to the south. Ms. Fulvia was kind enough to reserve us a car for our trip and there was a shuttle waiting to collect us at the airport. She simply made the trip much less stressful. One thing I would note: make sure you understand about turning on the hot water heater. It is not automatic like at home and I was shocked my first time in the shower ;). All in all, this was the perfect stay for our first time in Aruba. Fulvia also has other rental spots and we would look into these if we returned with all our family. Thank you to Fulvia and her moma!
Quiet little Paradise on the Northwest end of the Island
My husband and I rented the blue apartment in La Dolce Vita for 2 weeks. Perfect size for 2 people. We were far enough away from the crowded beaches, hi-rise hotels and the commercial "tourist traps" but a short drive for some of the best restaurants around. Most of the time we felt we had the entire villa to ourselves. The pool was always clean and great for a morning swim or Happy Hour with some of our "neighbors". A nice walk to the beautiful Arashi Beach, good snorkeling. white sand beach. Rooms were cleaned daily with a vase of fresh island flowers every day, a nice touch. Arubians are very friendly and we felt very safe there no matter where we went. Fulvia and her mom were wonderful hosts.
La Dolce Vita is located in Malmok in the north west, the most exclusive area of the island of Aruba that only houses villas away from traffic and the confusion of the city and the big hotels.
It borders with Tierra del Sol where a splendid 18-hole golf course is located. The coast of Malmok has several small beaches frequented by lovers of snorkeling, the rocky coast recalls, in fact, a rich marine fauna and gives the sea typical colors and shades of Caribbean. Those immersed in its warm and crystalline waters come across turtles, tropical fish and pelicans.
From the Dolce Vita it is easy to reach, in 5 minutes by car, the most interesting shopping area of the island well equipped with restaurants and shops: Paseo Herencia and Palm Beach. The bus, which stops near the resort, allows you to reach the other beaches of the island, the sports facilities: tennis, beach tennis, wind surfing, kyte surf; supermarkets and many other locations.
