Pinch yourself! You have arrived at one of the most relaxing spots on the island of Aruba. Pull up a chair, prop up your barefeet, sip a pina colada, balashi, wine or iced tea on your front porch as you watch the sun set each evening. This home is so comfortable, ideally laid out and clean as a pin. In the morning, you can sit on the front porch and watch the two Iguanas (George and Ringo) sunning in the cactus. Everything you need to hop across the street to your beach is provided (chairs, wade shoes, snorkel equipment, boogy board). The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. There is a grocery store one block away, Marina Pirata resturant with dining on the deck is 5 mins. away. You will need a car or some mode of transportation to get into town for the night time fun and casino action. This was our second time to stay here and we have reserved for 2013. This is a great location for families with young children wanting to play in the sand, collect sea shells and wade in the water. Mangel Halto (beach across the street) is virtually yours during the week. The kitchen is fully equipped and you have a washer and dryer. It is difficult to list all the great resturants there are so many. Places worth trying: Salt & Pepper, Wacky Wahoo, Driftwood, Buccaneer, Fishes & More. NO MATTER WHAT YOU MUST TRY THE FISH EVERYWHERE. The fish is caught each morning, the resturants prepare it each afternoon and evening. Disappointing resturant: Old Man and the Sea-breath taking view of the Caribbean, beautiful setting, very elegant but poor service and after sunset too dark to see your dinner. If you are truly looking to relax with no agenda then open the gate to paradise.
