Villa
Villa Catalina is a beautiful 4000 sq ft private villa located in the Malmok/Arashi area, which is the most exclusive area on the island. It has unobstructed views of the crystal clear water of the Caribbean, and faces due west for the most unbelievable ocean sunsets. You can access the ocean directly in front of the villa, or just steps away at Boca Catalina beach, the premiere snorkeling spot in Aruba. It is also just a short walk from the amazing expanses of white sand at Arashi beach. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden, with a large variety of flowering plants, attracting hummingbirds and other local wildlife. The entire property is for your exclusive use only. No other renters will be sharing the outside patio areas with you, as is the case with some villas.

It has unobstructed views of the crystal clear water of the Caribbean, and faces due west for the most unbelievable ocean sunsets. You can access the ocean directly in front of the villa, or just steps away at Boca Catalina beach, the premiere snorkeling spot in Aruba. It is also just a short walk from the amazing expanses of white sand at Arashi beach. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden, with a large variety of flowering plants, attracting hummingbirds and other local wildlife. The entire property is for your exclusive use only. No other renters will be sharing the outside patio areas with you, as is the case with some villas. The villa sleeps 8-10 comfortably. There are 5 very large bedrooms, each with a wall of closets, and 3 full bathrooms. There is also an attached apartment with its own full bathroom if additional space is required (for an additional fee). This apartment is only available to renters of the villa and will not be rented separately. The full-floor master bedroom suite on the upper level has extra high ceilings, its own full bath, king-size bed, walk-in closet, giant TV and a private balcony overlooking the ocean. On the main floor are 4 large bedrooms with double, queen and king-size beds. Single beds are available upon request and can be placed in any of the bedrooms. The large bright open-plan dining/living area opens onto a raised front veranda surrounded by flowering plants -- the perfect place for relaxing with morning coffee while watching the pelicans dive for fish. The huge covered back patio has a large glass dining table, a gas grill, and a billiards table. The house was recently renovated with beautiful travertine floors throughout and brand new air conditioners in each room. Wifi and cable TV are included (3 TV sets). The huge kitchen has an American-sized fridge, professional grade stove and oven, a dishwasher, and a large variety of pots, pans, utensils, etc. A separate laundry room with commercial washer and dryer are on the premises. Although this is a very safe area, and Aruba in general is very safe, the villa has an alarm security system and two electronic safes for extra peace of mind. There is also covered parking on the property with a sliding gate entrance. The villa supplies foldable, portable beach chairs and a beach sun umbrella as well as beach towels. There are also sturdy, comfortable sunning lounge chairs for use on the property. More

About the neighbourhood
The Arashi/Malmok area is the most exclusive area in Aruba and one of the safest. The area not only has beautiful beaches, it is also the most famous snorkeling area in Aruba. The ocean is very shallow for quite a ways offshore and you can see a huge number and variety of fish just next to the beach. The water is usually very calm here, making it a perfect place for children and beginner snorkelers. (Please see our website for photos of the fish and sea life you can see here.) You can experience the best of both worlds in this location. Just down the road, literally a couple of minutes drive to the south, is the busy highrise hotel area of Palm Beach, with a huge variety of restaurants, shopping, spas, cinemas, and casinos. You can book any type of adventure or tour imaginable here - skydi...
