If you want to fly to another country and stay in American style hotel/condo/resort and eat American fast food then this is NOT the place. If you are looking for the way Aruba was before the high rise and low rise hotel were there; then this is the place. You are dropped in the middle where the locals are. This place rocks!!!! You are directly across from a lagoon and the best kept secret beach on the island. Local dive operators come out to the place daily to take students and divers. I did not scuba dive but I will next time but we snorkel 3 hours a day and love it. You drop in at the beach and the current will take you down 300 to 400 yards and you can get out at a set of steps and walk back and do it all over. This is your back yard if you stay at the place. The house has everything you need. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and we never felt like we were crowded. The place has 3 bedrooms. The beds sleep great. The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed. The air condition works in all 3 rooms and living room. The place had mask, fins and snorkel to play in your own private lagoon;)). When we were not in the water, the adults stayed out front on the porch. One of the best views in Aruba and I had it for a week. We had breakfast and lunch out there every day we were at home. The view is beautiful. The water is so blue. My wife wants jewelry that color blue/green now. Just to remind her of the place. Remember if you are looking for a Aruba Disney....This place is not for you. But if you want to experience Aruba the way it should be, I would try this place. Live a little and experience a lot!!!!
