About Lucia Stuart

Both my husband’s and my parents relocated when we were teenagers from Aruba to the US. As adults we have vacationed throughout the Caribbean, but always kept coming back to Aruba because we just love all that Aruba has to offer. The weather is perfect, the people are friendly, great night life, lots of excellent restaurants (many of them along water fronts), the beaches with glittering white sand and turquoise Caribbean waters are always inviting and the constant breezes all make for a winning combination!

Why Lucia Stuart chose Noord

We looked at different style homes in different areas and chose this one because it is perfectly located in a residential neighborhood in the famous Palm Beach area and when we are not in Aruba, we share our slice of paradise with you. The location is perfect because it is just a five minute drive to the strip with lots of great restaurants in every price range, shopping, entertainment, casinos, nightlife and every watersport imaginable.

What makes this villa unique

The open concept design masterfully accomplishes privacy for all the sleeping areas. The master suite is situated on the west side while the other two bedrooms are on the east side on opposite ends of a hallway. In addition to sharing favorite restaurants, we can recommend eateries serving local cuisine, restaurants serving breakfast past 11:00 AM, good places to shop etc., just little tidbits to help you enjoy your Aruban experience. You are always welcome to contact us if you need any travel advice.

Great house in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation in Aruba, due in part to staying in this wonderful home. Since this was our first international rental through VRBO, I spoke with Lucia several times before making the reservation and leading up to our stay. She answered all of our questions and provided helpful information and recommendations on grocery stores, restaurants and activities. The week leading up to our trip, she provided detailed directions and other important information for our check-in. Upon arrival, Rosa (caretaker) met us at the house to give us the keys and a tour of the home. She is so nice and helpful and greeted my family with a big smile and warm welcome. Lucia called that afternoon to make sure we had a safe arrival (this was very thoughtful and kind)! A repair was required while we were there and Lucia handled it very professionally and kept us updated on the status. She coordinated with Rosa to be there for the scheduled appointment with the repair person so we didn’t have to interrupt our vacation (again very kind and thoughtful). The house is well appointed with all the amenities of home – fully equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, nice bathrooms, etc. The linens (including beach towels) are high quality. The layout of the house was very accommodating for our family. The patio area outside was wonderful – all of the meals that we ate at the house were outside at the table next to the pool. Our children loved the pool! The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The house is in a great location – very close to restaurants, grocery stores, popular beaches (Palm Beach & Eagle Beach), a 15 minute drive to the gold mine ruins, and about 30 minutes to the National Park and Baby Beach. The check-out process was very easy - Rosa met us at the house at exactly 10am and wished us well as we left. We spent one day at De Palm Island (private island), which is a must do with kids. Arikok National Park (hiking, exploring caves, etc) was amazing, as were the gold mine ruins and driving our rental car all over the island to the beautiful beaches and other iconic stops along the way (Chapels, Lighthouses, Butterfly Farm, shopping in Oranjestad, etc). Our next trip to Aruba will include staying at Cool Breezes! Thank you Lucia & Terry for your warm hospitality!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as it was described, actually better. Nice, safe, quiet neighborhood 5 - 10 minutes from the beaches. The house manager met us at the property as expected and showed us the property and provided instructions. The house is beautiful and new with everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. Lucia, the owner, was in contact with us throughout the process and even checked in on us during the week to make sure everything was OK. Getting a call on our last day to wish us well on our trip home was especially appreciated. We really can't say enough nice things about the experience and the property. We agree completely with the other positive reviews expressed and will stay at this wonderful home again when we return to Aruba. Thank you Lucia and Terri, for sharing your home and helping to make our first trip to Aruba with our family an amazing experience.

Home Away From Home! (Feb.13-20, 2016)

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express how happy my husband and I were with our week at the "Cool Breezes" villa. From start to finish, our stay in Aruba couldn't have been more enjoyable.

When we arived at the villa, we were greeted by the lovely homeowners who were welcoming and immediately made us feel very comfortable. We were impressed with how well-maintained, clean, and organized everything was...both inside and out. The decor of all of the rooms was impressive! Also, we never lacked for anything. The beautiful kitchen was well-stocked with anything you could possibly need for the nights you prefer to cook at home.

We went to the beach every day (10 min. drive to our favorite spot). We simply grabbed the chairs, cooler and beach towels and headed out. Some afternoons we would simply spend out back relaxing on the patio or cooling off in the pool.

The villa is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood, just minutes to anyting we desired (restaurants, beaches, casinos, shopping, etc..).

At the end of the day, we looked forward to returning to the place we called "home" for the week.

We want to express out thanks to Lucia and Terry for being such kind and accommodating people. We can't wait to re-visit Aruba and will absolutely stay again at "Cool Breezes."

Cool times at Cool Breezes!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cool Breezes for our first trip to Aruba and loved it. We were so thankful we didn't stay in the high or low rise area as they are very congested. The neighborhood was quiet and very safe...even the stray dogs (there are many) are friendly in Aruba!

You can't fully appreciate the beauty and the modern decor of the home from the online pictures. The layout, the pool and the outdoor patio were amazing....We definitely had a "Booking dot Yeah!" moment as we entered.

The house is great-spacious, fully- equipped with all your vacation needs and is centrally located to Eagle and Palm Beaches and shopping. It was especially nice to have a local and US phone in the house and great wifi coverage. I would recommend to rent a car to fully appreciate the island's diversity. Try to get a map because the street signs are almost non existent and we were lost for almost an hour to meet Rosa at check-in. Thankfully she waited for us to arrive.

Our favorite places to eat were Fermin's Bar BQ (down the street), and Zeerovers (fun local hangout).

Thanks Terry and Lucia for opening up your beautiful home to us...I would stay at Cool Breezes again without hesitation!

One step up from rental 1 star

  • 1 of 5

They mention before we got there 2 days that the dryer did not work. The home is average at best, pool it is the size of a postage stamp. The cord to hang up stuff was rotten The couches are old and tired and so is the paint on the walls. Not any where near Palm Beach (20 minutes if you are lucking in traffic) at all it is in Noord. Then the TV cable did not work,( they knew this from the last people and did nothing to fix it)Ants infested the home To the point they were coming out the kitchen walls, we did not notice till day three as we were out all the time. They did get the TV going on the second to last day and call the exterminator. The blinds to the deck kept coming down as they are so old the metal hanger at the top is worn out. There was a chair and ottoman, we put a pair of jeans on the ottoman and it came apart. On day 4 our 7 year old son asked if he could take a bath not a shower. Well that could not happen as the plug in the bathroom would not drain and some one left dirty water in the tub about 1 inch so we did not notice till it was time to use it. 2 days later it was fixed or at leased they sent someone to get the plug out. I guess my husban tried to turn on a bed side lamp and it fell apart when he touched it ( sure wish he had told me) The dishware is all corning ware and plastic. I must say the knife set was great. With all of this I sent emails that were starting to get the point across that we were getting upset at all that was not working or in disrepair. The check in is 4 PM and check out is 10 am funny I do not think I have ever seen these times any where. We asked the caretaker and said we needed to stay till 11 Am. We spent the morning cleaning washing floors the out side deck stripping beds making sure it was a clean as we got it. All I asked is for our damage deposit back and I really did not want to take the time to write a thing about the home as I felt the caretaker ( Rosa) a local lady was making money off this rental and did not wan to do her any harm. As we were cleaning my son broke a coffee mug we told them about this and there were two plastic glasses that could not take the dishwasher and got distorted and well as an already cracked plastic bowl got more cracked, we let them know this before they gave us the damage deposit. Then 4 days later they went back and charged us $50 for the 1 hour late check out. Then said we were to blame for the blinds, ottoman, and lamp ( No true) and charged us 250.00 for it. Stay away

Owner's Response: It’s unfortunate when a guest comes along with questionable integrity. The photographs and guest comments speak for themselves. Prior to arrival she was told dryer part was backordered and a clothesline was strung. Property was bought new and listed in 2013 with all new furniture. First guest occupancy was July 2014. Total occupancy days less than 1 year. With 9 guests’ reviews, all 5 stars, the latest in 08/2015, there’s no hint of displeasure with furniture or wear and tear. Property is located 2 minutes from Caribbean Palm Village (CPV). Anyone familiar with the high rise hotel area knows it doesn’t take 20 minutes to get from there to CPV. When we learned one TV was not working we called the cable company for repair. Unfortunately guest arrived before appointment was scheduled and said that two TVs had no service. She had the audacity to question whether we even had accounts for all the TVs. After numerous calls an appointment was scheduled. They replaced damaged lines outside. Guest must have left sweet stuff or food on counter tops uncleaned which attracted ants. Exterminator sprayed the next day. The custom made vertical blinds worked perfectly until this guest’s occupancy. “Ottoman” is a foot rest for a recliner, not a seat. A good lamp doesn’t fall apart when it’s “just touched”. Unfortunately there was a miss-communication between housekeeper and caretaker about clogged bathtub. When guest brought it to our attention, we apologized immediately and had it cleared the very next day. Patio dishes are sturdy plastic and glasses are colorful insulated acrylic to avoid broken glass getting in pool. There are instructions that glasses are top rack dishwasher safe. Contract spells out 4:00 pm check in and 10:00 am check out. Guest received detailed directions including approximate driving time of 20 –25 minutes from airport to the home. Plane arrived 2:20 pm, ample time to arrive by 4:00 pm, even after securing a rental vehicle. Guest arrived well after 5:00 pm because she had to stop at the supermarket to shop – very inconsiderate. If guest had requested late check out, arrangements could have been made. Guest simply dictated to caretaker that they needed to stay until eleven. Guest slammed door in cable technician’s face. She demanded reimbursement immediately before inspection could be done. She used foul language in emails to us. In spite of her disrespect and foul mouth, she was treated with utmost respect, most of which is documented in emails.

Location

Car: recommended

Aruba Cool Breezes is less than ten minutes away from many of the 'happening' places which includes Aruba's capital, Oranjestad where many of the locals shop. Breath taking sunsets can be enjoyed from many restaurants along waterfronts. One of our favorites is Bugaloe, a very lively informal bar/restaurant on DePalm pier. They provide live entertainment Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from 6:30 until 10:00 pm for your dancing pleasure. Dinner cruises are available with spectacular sunsets. You can enjoy a reasonably priced buffet breakfast at Moomba beach. You can shop til you drop at Palm Beach Plaza or Paseo Herencia Mall or the many evening sidewalk vendors displaying their merchandise. You are also just a short drive away from Eagle and Arashi beaches with many others in between where you can arrange any imaginable watersport including fishing expeditions. Tierra Del Sol and Divi Golf Courses are also not more than ten minutes away.
