Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Aruba

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms. Optional Casita: 2 bedrms & 1 full bathrm. Sleeps 12

Aruba Malmok Villa Bon Bida!

Upscale beach bungalow with all of today’s comfort and amenities. Oceanfront, quiet and safe. Privacy and luxury in the exclusive residential beach area of Malmok, the finest residential area on the island. Less than two miles from most restaurants, casinos, hotels and American style supermarkets.

Beside it’s beaches and the Tierra Del Sol Golf Course, this place is famous as the starting point for a real off road experience on the northeast side of the island. Make your trip by bike or 4X4 through the splendid nature of Aruba’s rocky coastline interrupted by white sandy “boca’s”.

Bon Bida, papiamento for the good life!

Living in style: Have your dinner on the seaside veranda with a beautiful sunset view or on the poolside patio in a romantic garden setting.

Spend your happy hour under the seaside palapa or at the poolside palapa.

The villa offers spacious living places, inside and outside. All rooms are fully air conditioned.

The villa has been completely refurnished and redecorated recently. The style is very tropical with modern, most Indonesian style, furniture. All of which was found in the beautiful home decoration shops on the island.

The villa is decorated with colorful paintings of local artists.

If you need more accommodation, with the annex property 'Casita Atardi' (HomeAway nr. 3468826) you have 2 extra bedrooms and 1 extra bathroom.

The Villa and the Casita both have their own playground, pool and privacy.

Outdoor living: Aruba’s famous coast is just in front of the villa and the ocean is ideal for swimming, snorkeling and diving. Other popular sport activities include windsurfing, kite-surfing and sailing.

The villa is next to the Golf Course of the Tierra Del Sol Country Club, which houses our favorite hill-top restaurant: Ventanas Del Mar, with its gorgeous views. Do not forget to enjoy the Spa!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family.......6 adults and 3 children.....just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa Bon Bida (June, 2016). The house was even nicer than the photos....the bedrooms and baths were spacious as was the inside living areas...we never felt crowded. However, our favorite area was the outside ...with its comfortable lounging furniture, plentiful eating areas, wonderful pool and privacy. The house and kitchen were very well equipped .....beach chairs ands some snorkeling equipment were also provided. The location was perfect.....very close to several of the 'lesser used' but delightful beaches and only a short drive to some of the more popular beach areas. Mercedes was not in Aruba during our stay but she responded quickly to an email that I sent. Lis, the housekeeper, was very responsible and we felt very well cared for. We rented cars and I recommend doing that...also we had some difficulty initially finding the house......so, after you pass the Ritz Carlton take the first road on the right (about 1/2 mile)...the house is immediately on the left.

Perfect Property for a Family

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with four adults and three children aged 7 to 2 years of age. The House was fantastic for us - spacious, well appointed, and comfortable. There is a porch for every time of the day and living areas are a great escape from the sun. Our kids really enjoyed the pool which was very well kept. The kitchen is airy and well stocked. You don't need to eat out but the restaurants in the High Rise beach resorts are not far if you need to get out for a night. There was a lovely sunset every night visible across the beach. The bedrooms were very comfortable with good air conditioning to cool things off.

The owners also helped us find someone to cook meals and to arrange for spa treatments under the breezy palapa. Ask for Lerita's contact information.

Arashi Beach, a few minutes away by foot or car was our favorite on the island. Also, don't miss Philip's Animal Rescue or the Arikok National Park - both of which are good half day trips which will entertain the kids.

Overall, this was a perfect place for a family - comfortable and away from the crowds! Many thanks!!!

Perfect for our four couple getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home is well kept and easily accessible to the beach and primary tourist areas. We had four adult couples and a fifth who joined late and stayed elsewhere. The home was perfect for get togethers with the ten of us. There is ample common area both inside and outside the home that is appropriately furnished and inviting. Mercedes was great to work with and we would welcome another stay in the future.

Doesn't get any better than this place....

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 8 people, 4 couples. We travel every winter together and normally stay at an all-inclusive resort. This year we decided to rent a home in Aruba to be able to enjoy the entire island. It is the best decision we could have ever made. This home was more than we expected. The pictures do not do justice to how nice this home is. It was hard to find a home with 4 bedrooms with their own bathrooms and this place did. Two of these bedrooms were completely seperated from the other 2 bedrooms. The bathrooms did not look very big in the pictures, but they were quite spacious and the showers were great. The house was well maintained and the landscaping around the pool was wonderfully done. The pool was very relaxing and the pool guy came twice that week to clean it. The two best parts of the home are the outside living spaces and the way you could open up the entire house so you had the breeze everyday throughout. We enjoyed the open air every morning as we drank coffee and cooked our breakfast. The days were spent at the pool and the evenings we switched to the front of the house to enjoy the ocean view. We cooked a couple dinners on the grill and we had two outside tables to choose from where we could all sit together. We liked the location not being in the busy highrise area. We had some of the best snorkeling right across the street, which we visited often. In the mornings we would walk to the edge of the highrise area but in the evenings we would jump on the bus, which is located also across the street or call the taxi service. Liz our house keeper met us at the house and walked us through all we needed to know and was always a phone call away if we needed her. She also came midweek to do some light cleaning. The house seems to be in a very safe residential area and is equiped with a safe and alarm system which is nice to have. There were plenty of towels and laundry facilities on site. I cannot say enough about this home, except we are already planning on our trip back here next year. We definately will not look any further. This will be our place to call home in Aruba.

Private, peaceful, stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented villas and apartments all over the world and this one ranked as our all-time favorite!! 2 parents and 4 teenagers had plenty of space to spread out and relax, and the house was beautifully equipped with great towels, beach towels, bedding, and cooking equipment. The home is every bit as beautiful and clean as shown in the photos. The service we received from the Mercedes, Lis and their cleaning staff was superb and we sincerely thank them. Best part: the beach is across the street!!!! We loved jumping into the water off the rock ledge directly across the street, and soft, white sand is a 5 minute walk up the coast to the best swim-in snorkeling. When some of the kids were ready to leave the beach, it was perfectly safe and easy for them to walk back to house and chill out with the Wi-fi. Aruba exceeded our expectations, as well. Excellent restaurants, extremely friendly people, easy to navigate, and some of the most stunning scenery. Don't miss the "other" coastline and the National Park, either! We will definitely be back!

Great Malmok Villa Rental

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from spending a week in Aruba! We had difficulty getting their with missing our flights with delays, but finally got their. It was a little difficult to find cause the streets are not marked very well and the number on the house is not clearly marked. We had 4 married couples in the villa. Plenty of room and 3 areas to relax outside. The housekeeper was a call away and answered all our questions that we had. She also came in on Wednesday to clean. We rented 2 cars which was really nice so we could split up if needed to do different tours for the day. The best snorkeling on the island was just across the street from us. We went snorkeling everyday and watched the spectacular sunsets every night. The grocery stores were not that far from the villa, but a car would be needed for that. We never used the bus stop that was right across the road from us also. The villa is in a very nice safe neighborhood. The only thing I believe that could be improved would be the lighting in the house is very dim which can make it very hard to read at night. Thank you so much Mercedes for allowing us to stay at your villa. When we come back to Aruba we will definitely stay here again.
