Bonbini! Welcome! Casa del Viento is a luxury villa located in Malmok- one of Aruba’s most desirable neighborhoods. The villa is across the street from the Tierra del Sol golf course and minutes from the California Light House. The house is just steps from Arashi beach which has the best snorkeling on the island. Set in a private garden the newly remodeled house can sleep up to 10 people. There are 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, 4 of which are on-suite. The top floor master suite features a king size bed, large walk-in closet, spacious master bath, and a wrap around balcony with spectacular views of the ocean and a year around breeze. The other bedrooms feature one queen bed, 2 full beds, and one set of twin beds. Three of the guest rooms on the first floor have on-suite full bathrooms. The forth guest bedroom has access to a private full bath. The open plan living area features a modern kitchen, dining area, and a double living room. The double living room has seating for 11 as well as cable TV. There is also a selection of books and games. The living room opens to a covered porch on the front as well as a large balcony on the back that overlooks the pool and ocean. The dining room features a teak table with seating for 8 as well as a large buffet. The modern kitchen has a gas range, dishwasher, and refrigerator. The laundry room with a front loading washer and dryer is just off the kitchen. The entire house is fully air-conditioned- a real treat for Aruba! Each room in the house has individual air conditioning controls. There is also a central alarm system and high speed wireless internet service.
A privacy wall surrounding the entire property gives you total seclusion. The property has a variety of native tropical plants, and coconut and palm trees throughout. A large courtyard area provides for ample parking. There are multiple balconies and porches both covered and open to allow for sunbathing or resting in the shade on a hammock. The al fresco covered dining area comes equipped with a built-in BBQ and spacious seating. The addition of the pool, and the prime location just steps from the beach give you all you need for a relaxing tropical getaway.
Casa del Viento is located in Malmok, approximately 15 minutes from Reina Beatrix Airport. This prime location is known for its great snorkeling, windsurfing, kite surfing and scuba diving. The house is just minutes from restaurants, supermarkets, casinos, shopping and the high rises. Facilities for golf, tennis, scuba diving, boating, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, horse back riding and fishing are also near by. The hustle and bustle of Oranjestad is just a short drive away.
Stayed in this house for eight nights with my family which consisted of a total of 8 adults. House is in a great location with Arashi beach about 100 yards to the right and a great snorkeling beach 100 yards to the left. Ocean views are fabulous with great sunsets and the California Lighthouse up the hill. It is about a 5 to 7 minute drive to the hotel district, restaurants and casinos. We did rent a car .
As for the house itself , it is great space for a large group. 5 bedrooms and bathrooms, good size living area and kitchen. Also there is great outdoor space consisting of 2 large verandas ( 1 off living area, 1 off master bedroom) and a very nice pool area. Very private. So we could easily hang as a group or you could go on 1 of the verandas to read a book. We ate out for dinner all nights except for one. Kitchen was well equipped for preparing a meal. There is also an outdoor eating area and grill but we never used it.
German , caretaker or manager, lives in an apartment on the property but I only saw him once . I did call him 3 times with issues and he fixed each one in less than 10 minutes. Very responsive.
House could use a few minor upgrades. A few of the cushions on the outdoor furniture need to be replaced as well as some of the beach towels . Could use a few lamps , especially in MB, for reading. Finally, a couple of shower heads need replacing. Nothing major.
We really enjoyed our time at this property and highly recommend it
Outstanding property. This is our 5th time to Aruba. We stayed at the Marriott Ocean Club and Surf Club for our previous vacations. Never again. The house was great. No more than a 50 yard walk to the beach. The pool is large with a shallow end and deep end. Spacious home with five large bathrooms and bedrooms. If you need several bedrooms, this is THE place to stay in Aruba. We look forward to returning next year.
This was our second trip to Casa Del Viento with our children and grandchildren. The house is ideally located with activities for everyone nearby. Our older grandchildren loved snorkeling during the day and Palm Beach in the evening. The little ones enjoyed the beach and pool. The house easily accommodated all ten of us and the kitchen was reasonably equipped for fun dining. German even saved our "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree from two years ago. I would recommend this house to anyone who enjoys lovely surroundings and in need of a restful vacation.
Very nice property, great location. The only negative was we were not made aware that the property caretaker lived there in a lower level apartment.
We LOVED this home. It's poised on a hill with three views... one of a snorkeling beach and one of a sandy beach, a short walk across the street, either way. And one of the golf course and light house. The description and pictures of the view, the rooms, and layout are exactly as outlined in the listing. The property was clean; housekeeping provided during the stay;, garden, pool, and grounds service during stay; with an outsight caretaker (who was only seen when needed). Very private pool. Have already recommended this property to two friends and expect I'll recommend it more. We had two excellent dinners using the grill and had our breakfast there (well-stocked kitchen) each day. The grocery store was fabulous, anything we wanted plus a nod to Aruba's Dutch settlers with yummy cheeses. We golfed, went to Baby Beach, snorkeled across the street, hiked around the light house... and just relaxed. I hope we return as a family!

The hustle and bustle of Oranjestad is just a short drive away. You can reach the house by taxi, however we recommend renting a vehicle at the airport. If you plan to explore the backside of the island, you will need a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
