About Marie

Hi my name is Marie. I am lucky to have my wonderful husband who is a native Aruban! My husband and I met in Aruba and were fortunate enough to have owned a great watersports business on Eagle Beach. Business was amazing – we were able to work on the beach together, in our swimwear and maintained year-round tans. What a life! Although we now reside in NY and my husband has traded the white sand for the white snow, we decided that our dream was to retire and return to Aruba. We bought this house, in a great neighborhood, that we hope will make you feel as at home as we do. Fortunately, we have had many delightful families enjoying our home and the amenities that we are proud to offer. Since Frans and I both have lived on the island, we are available to assist you in planning an incredible family vacation, romantic getaway, or even honeymoon. Our knowledge of the island is enhanced by the many friends and connections we maintain. We can assure you that you will be well-guided and treated with excellence. We will even share the best kept 'secrets' of the island that only the locals know. Whether you want to hang with locals and feel a like a true Aruban, enjoy complete privacy and intimacy, or explore the adventure of the island with your children, then we can be your tour guides! Share our home, our history, and add to the legacy of which we are so proud. We love Aruba and know you will too! We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you in planning the vacation of a lifetime!

Warmest regards,

Marie and Frans

Marie purchased this villa in 2011

Why Marie chose Palm Beach

Our home is close to all the beautiful beaches, fine dining, casinos, movies, and water sports etc... Oh and Aruba is out of the Hurricane belt!

We can assist with picking restaurants and navigating you around the island so you can enjoy the true Arubian experience!!! We can guide you to places tourists never find! Our rates are negotiable if staying longer than a week.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Aruba! Really cute house, wonderful back yard in the perfect location.

There were 4 of us and while this house could fit 6, we found it nice for each couple to have our own side of the house with our own private bathroom. There is a fully stocked kitchen although with all the great restaurants in Aruba we went out every night. There are beach chairs and coolers which we used every day and took to the various beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and will return one day. There is no hot water and I was a little nervous going into it but you really don't need it. The water is always warm.. not hot... but warm. Showers worked out just fine. Also- if you are an animal lover (as I am) check out New Life for Paws and Aruba Flight Volunteers and see how you can help the unwanted animals of Aruba find a better life. I did and can say its so rewarding and simple to do!

GREAT house w/all amenities you need. PERFECT backyard pool. Best location and wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

Best of both worlds having the privacy of this nicely appointed and very spacious house with a fabulous backyard and pool, so close to resort properties and best beaches on the island. Marie, the owner, is so kind and generous; such a pleasure to know someone who strives to make her guests feel comfortable and carefree. She’s so helpful in giving tips on anything from restaurants to island attractions and shopping. She helped make this the BEST vacation my family and I have ever had. It’s within walking distance to the Marriott resort and the neighborhood feels very safe, even at night. The local grocery store is a five minute drive from the house and has everything you need. If you’re looking for a lovely, clean, comfortable, and spacious home with an awesome backyard and private pool, this property will be perfect for you. Everyone in our party was very happy. I appreciated the easy communications with Marie and would definitely book this property again in a heart beat. I already miss Aruba and the comfortable, easy living style of this property and the kindness of its owner.

Great

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything we needed.

We were 5 adults + a 12 year old and a 3 year old. The children loved the pool which was maintained regularly.

It’s a 15 min walk to the beach.

Marie gave us great information about beaches, snorkel spots and restaurants. She also hooked us up with Dennis Martinez who teaches paddle boarding. Some of us spent a morning paddle boarding with Dennis. I baby sat our 3 yr old but I heard rave reviews. Dennis also arrange a day at a. Hard to find beach that the whole family really enjoyed. He brought his daughter with us since it was a Sat. She and my 12 yr old grand daughter became instant friends.

I left booking a car too late and nothing was available but Marie found 1 for me. They dropped the car off at the house and picked it up there when we were leaving.

I can’t say enough about how helpful Marie is.

You at 2 min. by car to a grocery store and 10 minutes from the Super Store. The Super Store is very busy so we normally went to the local store.

We all love our 10 days in Aruba and no one wanted to leave.

Great Location, Wonderful Pool, Some TLC Needed

  • 4 of 5

We (myself, partner, baby, sister, and 2 parents = 5 adults and a baby) had a great time over our week-long stay at Marie's (and first time in Aruba!). We picked the house to accommodate our sleeping situation, and the layout was great. We ended up using the pool and patio quite a bit, as well as the kitchen (mom did lots of cooking). Also, the location is indeed perfect as it is a 3 minute drive to Palm Beach and the Marriott, as well as a <10 minute drive to Arashi Beach, Eagle Beach, Super Foods (mega grocery) and many food options. Beautiful birds can be seen in the salt marsh at the end of the street.

The place was clean upon arrival but needed to be aired out as all windows were shut and there was an odor of cleaning chemicals. The main problems we encountered were window screens in bad shape, and problematic A/C. A large number of the screens had tears and rips which defeated their purpose. The property manager took them to be repaired; however, our week had almost ended before they were returned! In the meantime, mosquitoes and other biting nasties got in and bothered us several nights. Two of the A/C units had issues - the large one in the main living space, and the one in our bedroom. They both stopped functioning without warning. The first time the an A/C repair person came at the property manager's behest and fixed the issue. The second time, an electrician was scheduled to come take a look but didn't arrive before the end of our trip. Apparently the wiring was such that internal fuses were blown during operation. They really need to be set up properly through the house's circuit breaker. The bedroom A/C unit was especially an issue as the baby was sleeping with us, and the room would get hot and muggy (especially with the attached bathroom whose window we couldn't open because the screen was taken!). Other issues were broken lightbulbs (fixed) and neighbors with annoying barking dogs.

Marie was very helpful and responsive throughout. We communicated mostly via text messages. She helped arrange a pack-and-play for the baby (thanks!) as well as a small plastic tub for bathing the baby and beach umbrellas, which had gone missing from the unit some time ago. She also coordinated with the property manager for the various repairs that needed to happen. We had a call before the trip began, where Marie gave directions to the place as well as some nice local recommendations.

Overall, we had a great time! The place just needs some TLC!

Overall a good place to stay, but has some issues.

  • 3 of 5

This is a very spacious house, well equipped and very comfortable. Maria was an excellent host and tried her best to do everything she could to make our stay pleasant. The 3rd bedroom with 2 queen beds, the beds were not as nice as the other two rooms. Probably great for smaller kids. But adult children found them uncomfortable. The walk to the beach is about 15 min unless you want to go through the swamp in front of the Marriott. Then the walk is less than 10. The property is older but well kept, but definitely not modern. After being there for two weeks I did wish we had some cleaning service at least once while we were there. The pool was great very clean and the again the host was fantastic, even helped us rent a car and provided transportation to and from airport wish is very nice since the cars are small. Overall I would recommend to a group of people who planned on staying at the house a lot but for me I felt like I paid a lot For what I got and would probably not stay in a private place again, I much prefer the resort and timeshare amenities.

Ideal for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at your home in Aruba! The house was perfect for our family of 4 and 3 grandparents. Very accessible to the beach and restaurants. What a beautiful, clean, and friendly island. We hope to return! Thank you, Marie, for arranging our rental car and van shuttles from the airport. Special thanks to Stacy, your house manager. We enjoyed meeting her, and she provided us with many ideas for sightseeing and visiting places around Aruba. She was exceptional. Thanks to Reno too.
