We absolutely loved Aruba and our stay at Rancho Azul. We traveled with our 2 young children (ages 2 and 3) and this home was perfect for us. One level living allowed us to not worry about stairs and the pool door had a child safety lock that really helped to put me at ease immediately. The home was well equipped and had even more than I expected for the kids - very nice child life vests (we had brought our own), pool floats, beach toys, child plates, cups, forks, etc in the kitchen and some other toddler toys. The home itself also had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay - plenty of towels for both the beach and shower, kitchen was well appointed, beds were comfortable, wifi, grill, great pool and outdoor sitting areas, cable TV, etc. One of our favorite features were the nature paths behind the house. We drove our SUV through the trails daily to get the kids to nap. The trails are easy to drive and lead to the lighthouse on the northern coast. You can catch the main road there and drive back to the house. We look forward to returning and biking those trails when the kids are older!

Simona and the mgmt company were great to work with. We had a GPS waiting for us at our car rental office and all of our questions were answered immediately and thoroughly. They we very friendly and professional.

Aruba is everything we hoped for and more. We traveled from Boston and it was a 4.5 hour direct flight. The weather was absolutely perfect, the people were friendly, we felt very safe at all times, the prices were reasonable and there was a lot to do for young children - I recommend Palm Island and the Semi Submarine boat tour.

We will definitely be back and hope to stay at Rancho Azul again!!

“Nice Place, Nice Hosts, Lots of Little Problems”
Reviewed 31 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Rancho Azul is, on first glance, quite beautiful. I agree with the other reviews on that. The folks handling the property were, for the most part, responsive. But, there were too many problems with this house. First, we had to call to find out the internet password. No big problem. The second day, the propane cylinder ran out of fuel, so we could not barbecue as planned. (That night, a full canister of propane was dropped off.) One disrupted dinner. Then the security lights outside the bedrooms burned all night and there was insufficient window covering to keep this from affecting our sleep. The managers told us there was nothing they could do about that. Big Problem. Then the electricity went out in part of the house. To Stuart's (one of the property managers) everlasting credit, he came over on Christmas day and waited till the electrician arrived. Problem was, the electrician could not completely fix the electricity and we were left without lights in the courtyard with the swimming pool. That meant we could not completely use the lovely courtyard at night. There were two showers in the house, but one of them sprung a leak. Stuart did a partial fix and promised to completely repair the shower, but that didn't happen, so for the last four (of seven) days we made due with one shower. The coffee maker stopped working the last two days, probably because of the power surge when the lights went out. Then the hot water stopped working the final day.

I like the place, but it needs a lot of TLC on the small things that make a vacation trouble-free. I am ambivalent about recommending it, but overall, it was a positive experience.

“Aruba at its best”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were a party of five and stayed for 5 days at Rancho Azul. First of all, the communication with Simona was great, very helpful, informative and fast and easy.

She even managed that we get a gps at our car rental station at the airport. This was very helpful during our stay.

The Rancho itself is great. The surrounding nature is really beautiful and although it is a "bit out of town" we felt safe every minute. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we had two power failures during our stay and they gave us a kerosene lamp and shared the news with us. When the first power failure happend Mark came immediately by and told us that the whole island were without power.

We didn't spend a lot of time inside the house but the house is wonderful. We loved to sit and eat outside, using the barbeque, the pool and the outdoor shower.

Most of the time we opened the entrance door and the back door (as all neighbors did) to got the air moving. In the bedrooms the air conditions did a good job.

The house is well equipped, we could use a lot of stuff for the beach, especially the big cooler.

We even could check out later and appreciate that very much. We would definitely come back and can recommend Rancho Azul.

“Awesome rental! Excellent location! Very accommodating.”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Where to begin... My wife and I for years now tend to rent homes as opposed to the stuffy hotel rooms where we can have our own space, privacy and tranquility. Rancho Azul was perfect for all of those reasons. We were traveling with our young daughter (15 months) so we wanted a place where she could have to her own, and Rancho Azul gave her just that - It's quite large inside and outside.

Not only did we need space for her, but we also needed a place for her to sleep as well as a high chair. When we arrived to pick up our car rental at the airport, Stuart (property manager) greeted us to give us a GPS to use for the week - and it was used heavily. Prior to our arrival we were also sent an email offering us to send a shopping list if we were coming in late so that we had food at the house. We didn't need that service, but it was a great idea if we did.

Stuart had arranged to deliver a pack and play so our little one could sleep and the high chair was already at the house. When we arrived, the house was super clean and welcoming. The kitchen was more than adequate (stove, oven, toaster, coffee maker, etc), the master bedroom was huge (all rooms have beamed high ceilings), and the backyard was just awesome.

On the other side of the fence in the backyard is a jeep road that leads to the dirt trails on the NE side of the island. As a runner, I was able to go right out back and have an amazing run to the ocean and then all the way to the lighthouse at the northern point of the island. You can get to the ocean in a short half-mile on foot.

The photos represent the property very well. There is no central AC, but opening the windows really brings in a great breeze. The bedrooms are very comfortably air conditioned.

If you're looking for a quality place to stay in Aruba, I couldn't recommend this place more. We actually left our daughter's blanket there by accident and the owner is having it shipped back to us as well.

Top notch rental and service!

“Awesome place”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I stayed at Rancho Azul for last two weeks. I have rented many vacation homes in the past and by far this one was the best. Can't say enough about this place! The house has everything one needs for a great stay. You literally just need to bring your suitcases. The house is well located and very quiet. Enjoyed my morning coffee on the patio. I will gladly rent this house again my next time in Aruba.
