Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the most wonderful place to stay! We enjoyed all the amenities and the pool, and dining "pool-side". We loved that there are clothes lines to dry things - the house is beautiful and perfect in every way! Well-equipped kitchen, too!

An absolutely wonderful escape with family

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing 2 weeks in Aruba, a few days with just my wife and I, and then 11 nights in Frank and Hilde's beautiful home with our grown kids and their families. There were 8 of us, but it never felt crowded with 4 separate bedrooms, the large and open kitchen/dining/living area, and of course the wonderful pool area with covered patio.

The house was very clean upon our arrival. Hilde took us through the entire property and answered any questions we had. The photos can not really do the property justice, it is just so nicely laid out and equipped for a stay like this. Everything we could want was provided; towels, beach toys, chairs, fully equipped kitchen, including a grill out by the pool which we used quite a bit.

A walk straight to the shore will take you to Hadicurari Beach, or you can walk through the neighborhood and past the Racquet Club and end up on the north end of Palm Beach near the Ritz-Carlton, both about a 10-minute walk. We rented a car because we explored the whole island, from the California Lighthouse to Baby Beach to the Natural Pool and many other sights.

A few of our favorite restaurants from the trip included the Tango Argentine Grill, The Wacky Wahoo's, Zee Rover's, and both the Pelican's Nest and Bugaloe Bar on the piers. We also enjoyed the Natural Pool, as well as Baby Beach, but you really can't find a bad beach. We walked the entire length of Palm and Eagle Beach and spent some time at many others along the south shore, each one is beautiful and unique.

I've already recommended this property to friends that plan to visit Aruba, and will stay here again when we return.

Lovely home with wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Villa Opal is even better than these wonderful photos. Everything here is perfectly maintained by your generous hosts Frank and Hilde. They are available for advice or assistance any time (the remote control for the TV did not work one day and they replaced it immediately - just one example). They were helpful even from the first email to our departure.

The location is excellent all around, but you do need a car. We could walk (.25 mile) to the Marriott/Ritz hotels and kite surfing beaches, but we had to drive a short distance (5 minutes) to get to Boca Catalina and Arashi - and those are the beaches where you can swim & snorkel without the crowds. You also have to drive about 7 minutes to get to the Super Food. Note that taxis are relatively inexpensive here too - so you can get around that way easily as well. (Just ask Hilde for a good taxi service - I know she can help!).

Overall - we loved it! It exceeded our expectations.

AMAZING WONDERFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Frank and Hilde's home. We celebrated 2 Christmas' in their home. We enjoyed 10 sunfilled days at Villa Opal. Everything was wonderful!! You can not find nicer people to deal with. Any question you might have they answer quickly. The home is meticulous. Frank and Hilde go out of their way to make you feel at home. We would enjoy mornings at the beach, afternoons by the pool. We were 6 adults and had plenty of room. Villa opal is beautifully decorated inside and out. Anything you might need is there. Hilde and Frank take pride in their home and it shows. Villa Opal is a short distant from many beautiful beaches, shops and restaurants. Thank you Frank and Hilde for another wonderful stay at Villa Opal. The Linstrum's

One Happy Island - Perfect Way to Celebrate Birthday with Family

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation home. Frank and Hilde were great through the whole process (booking, picking us up at airport and taking us back, directions, helpful hints, etc). The house had everything and layout was great. We brought our entire family 4 grown kids (ages 17-23) and in-laws to celebrate my wife's b-day. The pool was great and the patio was simply beautiful and peaceful for late evening games and swimming with the family. The Villa is immaculate, close to main attractions, and there was plenty of room for all of us. Thank you again Frank and Hilde for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Absolutely Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Hilde and Frank were absolutely wonderful! We had a group of 6 adults and the house was more than perfect. It was clean, well-kept, close to main attractions, and there was plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed our entire vacation and wished we could have stayed even longer. Thank you Frank and Hilde for being so accomodating and wonderful to work with. We loved the house and all the ammenities that were provided.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This villa is wonderful. It is well furnished, comfortable, well equipped, very private, and we loved the pool. It was perfect for our family 5 adults. The beach is close, although we had to drive (4 minutes) which was fine because we had snorkeling gear, chairs, etc. The villa is immaculate and we felt very comfortable calling Frank and Hilde with any questions. If we return to Aruba, (and I hope we do), this would be the only place I would want to stay.
