This was the perfect choice for me and my family. At first I thought that living in a neighborhood with barking dogs and crowing roosters was going to be a negative, but it turned out to be a really positive part of our experience. By the end we felt like natives and proudly flew the Aruban flag on our car for flag day. You'll want to rent a car but it's so easy to get around Aruba. We went to every beach and every great restaurant. But the snorkeling right across the street is the best! Besides a zillion fish and a huge variety of coral we got to see a giant barracuda and an octopus protecting its lunch. The house had everything we needed. Would highly recommend it for folks who, like us, prefer and authentic experience rather than just some resort.
