About Glynis Howes

Bon Bini Welcome to our story..

We found Aruba 10 years ago , on a visit by cruise ship.It took our hearts. We saved and came back for a holiday .From then on every year for a little longer each time .Until we stayed for 4 weeks . 3 years ago well fell for 59 San Miguel,we could only afford to buy it , it took us 2 years to get to this stage , So we can share our Aruba Home with our guests , that become friends ,from all over the world ,

Best of all which sound silly My own Palapa !!

Funny how something can make you happy,

I have been asked what house name , But to Us it's simply 59 SAN MIGUEL...it's now time to share our dream with you, we are just plain Glynis and Alan from the UK...People say live your dreams no matter how long it takes .Its taken a long time , but one day we will stay in Aruba .We love our Aruban Home it's a home from home to us , We do hope that you will enjoy it to.

Glynis Howes purchased this villa in 2014

Why Glynis Howes chose San Miguel

Why this property ...It feels like HOME ..people say home is where the heart is!! We never want to leave !!

Private, walled , gated , privacy not an issue on a large area of land ..With a lovely Breeze that will flow through the House ...

What makes this villa unique

Unique benefits ...3 minutes to eagle beach best beach for lots to do or relax with a picnic, and a glass of chilled wine beer in the cool box , 2 minutes to superfoods best supermarket on the island , central to everything you would need or want. Only 8 mins to palm beach or malmok..

Also Aruba is not in the hurricane belt of the Caribbean..

Great area the island breeze flows through the house day and night ,( we rarely. Use the aircon but that's a personal thing ) . The house is in a large area of land which means you have lots of space , and privacy,Close at hand to restaurants, Papiamento , Pam Pams , Bingos , Madame Janette, to name but a few ,all within a 1/4 of a mile... to most things .very central ,by car , for a lovely day at the beach soft sand cool breeze heaven

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 can only echo all of the positive comments previously made. Right from the first time we looked at this house we loved everything about it. After contacting Glynis it was a no brainer that this was the house we needed to rent and stay in. The house is clean, comfortable and conveniently located to so much on the Island and let me say the pictures shown here on VRBO are true to the beauty of the home. We originally decided not to rent a car but after taking several taxis on the first day we went and rented one which we felt did end up saving us a lot of money on taxis. Communication with Glynis was excellent from the time of booking through the duration of our 10 day stay. Julie, the property manager, welcomed us on arrival and introduced us to the cozy home. She is truly a lovely person who promptly and professionally dealt with any questions we had. Thank you Glynis and Julie. We look forward to our return. Hopefully it won't be another 10 years before we return. Thanks again.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and a welcome retreat after a day of exploring or hanging at the beach. Glynis is a sweetheart and a pleasure to deal with. She will do anything within her control to make your stay in her home a wonderful experience.

I don't think it's fair to talk about our time in Aruba because it was unusually rainy and strong winds but we had a good time regardless. However, if you go to Aruba,this is the place to stay.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented 4 properties in the past from owners, this was by far the BEST experience! This home has everything you could possibly need! It is spotless and no bugs inside or outside. Glynis was so wonderful to work with, always available if you have a question. We also tried Bingos Cafe which is now our favorite resturant in Aruba! Great advise Glynis! Thank you again Glynis for sharing your beautiful home, hoping to return next year! Scott and Joy Ottum
