Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Ruby is a perfectly appointed home. Christine and Gary have thought of everything to make a family vacation a dream come true. The house has everything a family needs for the perfect vacation! It is located in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood, which is close to the amazing beaches, and everything the island has to offer. The owners and their management team are warm and professional and they make you feel like family when you stay at the property. We hope to return to the property every year because it has become our home away from home and makes our family vacations effortless and comfortable. Thank you Christine and Gary for sharing your amazing property with our family!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Aruba and since we were traveling with family for birthday celebrations wanted everyone to stay together. This was also the first time to use VRBO. So glad we decided against the high rise hotels and so glad we found this wonderful home! It truly has everything you could need and felt like home. Having the private pool and a garage were important to us. Gary and Christine had a bottle of Prosecco and birthday balloons waiting for us when we checked in. Such a special touch! Staying at Bella Ruby definitely helped make our Aruba experience memorable, already making plans to return next year!

Excellent Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is Our 3rd time staying at this beautiful home! It is just my husband and I. Everything is always outstanding! Comfortable, spacious, relaxing.The owners, Gary and Chrsitine have added more special touches to their home. They are such wonderful people to work with. They also had a special bottle of wine waiting on us to celebrate our Anniversary as well as my Birthday, which was a pleasant surprise and thoughtful. This home has everything! They have put a lot of thought and time in this gem! You are close to everything, but I would recommend renting a vehicle(jeep) for exploring. As always the pool is private and well kept. We feel very safe here. Everything is exactly what you see in the pictured description and detailed information is at your fingertips in the house. Malmock beach is our favorite due to the beautiful water, beach and snorkeling. No need to pay to go on those expensive snorkeling tours, they all pull up right there. This is our 12th time to Aruba and this home is by far the best of all. So glad we found Bella Ruby! Our favorite! We will always stay here. Never a disappointment.

Our Oasis in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 visited Aruba from July 12-July 19. Bella Ruby is very accurately displayed via pictures and narrative on the VRBO site. 3 Bedroom house with individual AC's for each BR. Each Bedroom has its own bathroom. Kitchen was nicely sized and had very nice appliances (blender, dishwasher, fridge, coffee maker, etc) that all worked very effectively. Each drawer in the kitchen was lablelled with what was inside (pots/pans, plates, cups, BBQ utensils, cutting boards, etc) making it easy to find things and to return them. House was very clean and furniture in good condition.

Highlight of the property is the pool and deck area. Nice pool (cleaned 2/week by local service) with swim up bar if you can just find someone to serve drinks from the other side :). Full size grill is in good condition, very clean with 4 burners that all work well. I cooked fish we caught twice on the grill and burgers and chicken without any problem.

Nice security system for arming when you leave and even at night while sleeping. Forgot to tell one of our kids about it and she went outside the next morning tripping the alarm. I turned off immediately but did receive a call within 2 minutes from the security company so we know it works :). Never felt unsafe in Aruba but it was nice to have the security system.

Owners have put a lot of thought into the place .... descriptions throughout the property on how to use things along with a full notebook in the kitchen providing an overview of just about everything you need to know about the property, how to use things, and who to call with problems including the owners if no response from local management company.

I would say the best part of the Bella Ruby property is that you can tell the owners take great pride in providing a well thought out, clean , fun place to live while you enjoy your vacation. It is my understanding that this is their only property and it shows. All the information you need is right at your finger tips.

Our family would definitely go back!
