About the property

Modern beach house close to Boca Catalina. Master bedroom with an ocean view.

The Garden Villa is situated in the nicest residential beach area of Aruba. Our villa is just across the beach boulevard and one block in from Boca Catalina beach. To be more precise, it is just 250 steps from our front door to the beach and Caribbean Ocean. The beach is complete with cabana huts and is one of Aruba's best swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving areas (by the way, all the beaches in Aruba are free). The surf at Boca Catalina beach is very calm so it's suitable for all ages including older folks as well as children. This area of the island is also great for water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and just about any other water sport you can think of. In fact, the international windsurfing competitions are held here every year just a mile down the beach from our villa! Best of all, our area beaches are not known to most tourists so they are never crowded and most times it's like having your own private beach!

THE FEATURES: Our 'Garden Villa' is actually a full-sized, air-conditioned home with approximately 2,100 sq ft of living space. It has a modern eat-in kitchen, large open-air living room, 3 large private bedrooms (including an upstairs master suite complete with balcony and panoramic views), 3 full baths, 2 large patio areas, barbeque area, gardens, in-ground pool and gazebo. All bedrooms have their own separate baths so each couple can have total privacy. The house sleeps six adults very comfortably (roll-away bed can accommodate an extra person if necessary). The fully equipped, eat-in kitchen is complete with all appliances, dishes, silverware and pots/pans. The focal point of our villa is a unique open-air living room overlooking the gardens and pool. For total seclusion, relax in the gazebo hidden in our own private tropical gardens located on the property. The villa is situated on 1/4 acre and is surrounded with 10' high privacy walls. This makes the property very safe for children. Our villa is very private, secluded and quiet. And, if you need to get out, there are regular bus and taxi services or, if you rent a car, it's only a short drive to all shopping, casinos, golf courses and restaurants.

It's truly a 'home-away-from-home' - - only much, much better

Please note we are selling our Christmas week and New Year week as two separate weeks or both together. Christmas week from the 20/21st – 28th/29th December and New Years week from the 28th/29th Dec – 3/4th January. We will not be accepting check-ins on the 25th , 26th December or the 1st of January.

Perfect House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Aruba - my wife and I, and three teenagers. To begin with the owner was always available and responded almost immediately to any questions I had about the trip, very helpful. The house was great. Clean, spacious, private, well stocked, comfortable, and secure. The outdoor living area was well kept and also very private. The pool was clean, and a welcome addition after being in the sun all day. The location was ideal for us, quiet, away from the busy hotel area, but close enough to hop in the rental car and get some dinner and shop at night - all just a 5 minute drive away. There is a beach right across the street, and others very close. The house is close to the California Light House and the start to many UTV / ATV / Jeep trails. We will rent this house again.

5* loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was my husband and my first trip to Aruba. We travelled with 2 other couples. The one couple had been to Aruba 4 times and said they would definitely choose this house again. It had everything we needed and amazing property and view of the beach. Our rooms were spacious and the outdoor sitting area was amazing! The owner was quick to reply to all our questions and needs.

We rented a car and were close to everything.

The area was beautiful, clean, up to date and spacious. My husband and I stayed in the suite with an amazing ocean view.

We will definitely rent again and highly recommend this house to anyone.

Thank you !

Great property in quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

We had two adults and three teens. Property was perfect for our family. Layout is great with 2nd floor bedroom, bath and porch. Outdoor dining area was used for all meals. Pool was great to come home to each day after the beach. A short walk to great snorkeling area. About a mile north of high rise hotel area so it is much quieter. There is traffic going to the light house and northern shore but it isn't a bother. House had everything a family would need.

The perfect Villa for 3 couples

  • 5 of 5

The upgrades made recently to the inside and outside the home, made the stay more enjoyable. I have rented this home on previous vacations, as it the perfect house in an excellent location. The new owners and property managers are delightful to work with.

Beautiful Villa just steps from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is very clean, comfortable, safe and just steps away from the Beach. It is a short drive (less than a mile from the Ritz Carlton where you can rent and take any type of sailing lessons etc... We loved staying here as the location was perfect with lots of space for 6 people. The Patio and Garden was very spacious. You could watch the sunset and rise over the Ocean from the balcony!
