Charming house in a quiet neighborhood
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this historic house. It is a blend of the old and the new, giving it lots of character...gas cook top built into an old chimney, awesome showers in the stone-walled bathroom, quirky light switches that took us awhile to get used to, large windows that open to allow the trade winds to blow through, and more.
The house is clean and comfortable, and should there be a problem, the owners respond quickly. The stove top ran out of gas and Carola came to our rescue within minutes.
There is no microwave, and the coffeemaker is a Senseo - similar to a Keurig, making individual cups of coffee. A large toaster oven works very well for both toasting and baking. Although it is not mentioned in the property description, there is a washing machine located off the master bath. No dryer, but a large drying rack complete with clothespins works just fine.
Because our US Cellular phones had no reception on the island and many streets and roads are not named, we did lots of "exploring" without GPS. However, the WiFi in the house works fine. In addition, we really appreciated the informational notebook for guests which contains lots of useful info about both the house and Aruba. And the welcoming bottle of wine was a lovely surprise!
We recommend the house for it's unique charm, location, comfort, and caring owners.
We have a very enjoyable stay, Very nice facility, Having a rent car was real handy. Pretty good walk to the beach. Very clean, felt safe, unique facility. We had a great time.

Excellent stay in the beautiful house
Great location for this well-maintained house. Plenty of space for kids to play and for adults to have a wonderful vacation. The house has a very relaxing atmosphere. Loved the architecture and the room's layout.
Responsive and responsible owners.
Very much would like to return.
Perfect! Loved the house!
The hosts, Jurgen and Carola, are lovely and helpful and the house is a treasure. Beautifully redone historic house. In the morning we opened all the windows to the trade winds and singing birds .Loved being in a locals neighborhood a very short distance from all the tourist activity..but close enough to everything.Cant wait to stay here again. Thank you
