We had a wonderful time at Debbie and Steve's house in Aruba. This was our first VRBO experience and my husband was a little nervous - but he loved every second and wants to return as soon as we can. We loved being across from such excellent snorkeling - we snorkeled 2-3 times every day. We have 2 boys (ages 10 and 12) and the snorkeling in front of the house was just perfect for them. We loved exploring the island and cooking fresh fish. We drove around the island (completely) several times, enjoyed the national park, Philips Animal Sanctuary, donkey sanctuary, renting UTVs (from Georges) and getting to know the island. We snorkeled at several beaches, but the beach in front of our house was definitely our favorite. The house was great for us - more room than we needed really. Debbie and Steve have every thing you need - my boys really enjoyed the selection of board games. The kitchen is very well stocked and we cooked most of our meals (fresh fish is readily available!). Everything was clean and in good order. We loved being in the "real" Aruba instead of the hotel high-rise area. We felt safe in the house - the neighborhood was loud one night (Flag Day - the Arubian holiday). The locals were very nice and helpful (including pointing out the sea snakes...which they are not afraid of at all!). We can't wait to go back - and will definitely return to stay at Debbie and Steve's.
