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.

The house and location were perfect!
Very clean and the best backyard and pool!
Marie ( the owner) gave us great suggestions for restaurants and tips on beaches , stores etc, everything she told us was spot on.
We had a very relaxing time at the house and rented a car for the week that Marie arranged. Everything was so easy. We also had a great paddle board lesson with an instructor and did a kayak outing too. We hit several of the beaches -all beautiful. We will be back
This was a beautiful property. It was 6 of us - my parents and 2 teen kids and it was perfect. First I will talk about the negatives- it was a little further from the beach so you really can’t take a walk on the beach. It is 5 minutes drive. But the good thing about that is it made more likely that we went to different beaches rather than stick with one ( which we might have if we didn’t have to get into the car). The other is middle bedroom with queen bed is slightly small but nothing unbearable. Now the good. The property is beautiful. The pool is great. The patio is wonderful as well. It was nice to just sit out there. Kitchen had everything. We had breakfast and lunch at home a lot. The owner is wonderful and really helps to plan your stay. Overall we loved it!
Great private villa
This is the 3rd time we’ve stayed at the villa on Saliña Cerce- which is within walking distance to the beach and high rise casinos and restaurants, but private and secluded. We stayed 3 weeks this vacation, and really enjoyed! The owner and the local manager are eager to help with any issue that arises. Only one negative - barking dogs next door that can be annoying. Strongly recommend this villa as s private getaway.
Beautiful home. Marie is wonderful.
I was skeptical at 1st as we had never done this outside of the US. The house was as advertised. It was well furnished for cooking. We immediately realized we needed a car to do what we wanted to do. I emailed Marie to ask about it. She took care of everything and within an hour, a car was delivered to me. If she has a house in The Dominican, I would book it for next year.
Perfectly delightful centrally located house. Best vacation rental ever!
Oh my goodness! Where do I start? My girlfriends and I rented this house for 8 delightful and laughter filled days. The open concept floorplan, 3 spacious bedrooms, and the lovely appointed backyard made us all feel right at home. There is a huge 8 seat wooden table on the back patio where we spent many an evening sharing stories and laughs. Plenty of sun loungers and pool floats. We wanted to spend a lot of time at the beach and our hostess Marie was gracious enough to purchase more beach chairs and umbrellas so that our entire group would be comfortable on our excursions. There is also a large rolling insulated cooler that you can take to the beach! No need to worry about towels. There are beach towels, sun lounger towels, bath towels and enough sheets to outfit an army. The location of the house was fantastic. We were so close to the beaches, nightlife, shopping, and anything else you could possibly want.
What really made our trip was our hostess Marie. She was easy to talk to, easy to get a hold of and she promptly handled any issues or questions that came up. Our entire group gives her two thumbs up. Also, she has spent many years on the island and knows everything. She gave us tips on the best beaches, restaurants and nightlife. We took her advice, and had an amazing time. Also, she is a passionate pet lover and donates a portion of every rental to animal rescue on the island of Aruba.
In addition, I would like to give a shout out to the neighbors with the two dogs Marley and Django. They were so gracious to let us love and spoil their dogs. The dogs are super sweet and came over every day. We were delighted to have them, and they really added to the ambiance of the house. Just remember to put them outside the gate in the evening, they need to go home sometime! If you aren't into animals, just leave the front gate closed and you won't have any 4 legged visitors.
Other misc. positive points of the property - a stereo in the house, excellent wi-fii, a really nice grill, plenty of dishes, designated parking, more than enough closet space, and clothes lines to hang your swim suits and towels.
We look forward to renting this house again :)
GREAT house w/all amenities you need. PERFECT backyard pool. Best location and wonderful host.
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.
Relaxing by your own private pool! steps away from your own big private house! Across the street from the Marriott and Ritz Carlton! Palm beach is within walking Distance and Eagle Beach and Arashi Beach (my favorite) are about 4 min away. We bought the house because of the location it is the best spot ever! its so peaceful and next to everything! on a quiet dead end side street! Please enjoy it Come stay here you will Love it! And I will make sure you have a wonderful time and will help you plan everything!!!
