Gail Childress purchased this House in 2014
Why Gail Childress chose San Miguel
this property for the location and amenities. this quiet home , but so close to all the action of the high rise. trade winds always blowing . this is because the way this home is situated on the land. You can walk the neighborhood safely . and you can also walk to the largest and newest food store on the island. you never want to leave this wonderful retreat.
What makes this House unique
Cool down in your private pool during the day and relax in the jetted jacuzzi at night. The tiki bar has a fridge. and a sink. there is a charcoal grill and an electric grill, this is your choice. You also have a two burner grill for those large pots, like having a seafood boil. The list goes on. and the big plus is you are soooo close to all the night life and sights that Aruba has to offer!!!!!. Location Location Location!!!!!!!!

The house was very close to Eagle beach. It had everything you needed. We loved the grill and the outside bar area. Gail and Julie were very attentive. Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend this property.
This beautiful property met all of our needs and expectations. Traveling with my adult children, this home gave us each our own space and wonderful memories hanging out in the backyard cooking dinner, sunning and soaking in the pool and hot tub. We stayed for 10 days and had a lovely vacation.
Kimberely.thanks so much for the wonderful review.so glad your family had a great time. Please come back. You are always welcomed. Gail
Absolutely Amazing Home!
The home is gorgeous, clean, and has a welcoming decor. Everything was absolutely perfect! This couple should get an award for making you feel welcome. All the amenities were amazing. This house is an absolute when staying in Aruba. We just keep coming back because it is a HomeAway Sandcastle. Loved it!!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and how much we look forward on your return. Have happy holidays and a great new year !!!!!

5 stars not enough!!!
We cannot express how thrilled we were with our stay at Sandcastle. We had read all the reviews and had a good idea of what to expect, but was blown away by the house, and location. From the minute we got to Aruba Julie took good care of us giving us a tour of the house and telling us she was available 24/7. The house is amazing with everything you could need on your vacation..we had a group of 9 and used every bedroom. There was plenty of space for everyone to have some private down time. My husband and myself ( in our 70s) was pleased to find a bedroom on first floor so. No need to walk steps. Gail the owner was very patient with all my questions before hand. We can't say enough how wonderful the house and grounds are, all everyone talked about on the way home was when can we come back to the Sandcastle and beautiful Aruba.
So glad you were not let down
About the sandcastle. We love it there as well.please do come back.it seems everytime we come.there is always something new again Aruba has added..I remembered giving you directions about turning at this light and turning at that light. Then when it was time to go.all the lights were turned into round abouts. Buckets of sand to you,gail
Super Nice Place Close to Everything
Owners are very responsive and provide exceptional service from the onset. The entire experience was 5 Star.
Julie, our host, is the best. Pleasure to have met with her and deal with her direct upon arrive to go thru the house and explain everything. Had one little blip with the house when a breaker tripped but Julie was on the spot even late at night and was able to assist with getting the power to the kitchen back on. Breaker trip was my fault when I plugged in a phone charger the wrong way and at 11pm I only wanted to inform her what happened but she responded with a few minutes and all was fixed.
The house has everything you need to stay as long as it is open. Washer and Dryer so pack light. Full size fridge, large gas burner stove and dishwasher. Outside bar has an ice machine and there is a rolling cooler to load your beer and lunch with ice for a full day at the beach. There are chairs, sand chairs, umbrellas and other things for the beach. Pool and a hot tub for the relaxing evenings after the long days. Plenty of rooms with bath towels and beach towels in each room for each person.
We took our 4 adult children and friends with their 3 adult children. Only thing we found that many people getting ready for the night out was diminished water pressure when all 5 showers were running, but that was easy to solve for with timing for showers.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!
Aruba Stay Done Right
The house was amazing and very convenient to beaches, restaurants and shops. Look forward to our next trip to Aruba.
This quiet neighborhood is right across from the newest and
largest food store. and you can walk there. if you like to dive, guess what? you can walk to the dive shop as well. located within the neighborhood.
