If you travel to Aruba, you have to stay here. From making arrangements, to leaving, there wasn't a need that wasn't met. We were sent planning details, maps and tourist tips. Our host, Val, met us at the unit and welcomed us to the island. We were two couples celebrating our 45th anniversaries, and he provided us with welcoming champagne...

We were given great, clear directions and found this treasure easily. We stayed for four days and had a fabulous experience. The house was well stocked with staples, immaculate and comfortable, no, luxurious. Elegant furnishings not overdone, and accommodating. I'd only seen such beautiful white sand beaches in magazines. The private beach is on a small blue lagoon with a...

We have rented several homes but have never had the appreciation and service that Evelyne provided with this great private home and beach. Close to Scuba and other great beaches. The location is off the beaten path, so we were able to experience the true Aruba, wild donkey's and all. The house included beach towels and flip flops! It was...

About the neighbourhood

Welcome to our little pearl in the Caribbean where island vibes and our mañana way of life blend with all the modern comforts of back home, making Aruba your true home, away from home.

The Colony

The area was once known as 'The Colony' because executives and their families lived in a gated community during the bustling half-century operation of the Lago Refinery. Now with the refinery closed down the area is famous for it's peace and quite. A piece of Aruba unique for its architecture and relaxed atmosphere of an era long gone.
Getting around
Best way to get around in Aruba is by rental car as taxi is expensive. we work with a car rental which we could refer you to with reduced prices for us.
