Bert and his family are very welcoming. Marley, their dog is so sweet and greeted us every morning and night when we'd come back. Wifi is a little spotty in certain places. No door on the shower. AC is inconsistent at times. We stayed one week. Towels were changed once, sheets were not. Overall for the value, it was a great place to stay with minor flaws that didn't diminish our enjoyment.

If you are hesitating on booking this place - dont!!! Book now! Bert and his wife are such genuine and lovely people and will go out of their way to help you - the cottage is lovely and perfectly located if you are hiring a car. The pool is right outside your bedroom door and cottages and surrounding property are beautiful. We also loved getting to meet Marley - such a lovely dog! A great experience - would highly recommend! Thanks for everything! We miss Aruba!

This is a great location, if you want to be away from the resorts and intend to rent a car. It's an easy drive to the eastern + northern beaches, Oranjestad, grocery stores, etc.--with parking provided. Our little house had a private front porch/patio + entrance, along with a back porch w/ access to the small-ish pool. The bedroom had A/C and the rest of the house was cooled well by cross-ventilation. The wifi was fairly weak in this house, but I think this wasn't the case in the other houses. The kitchen had everything we needed--we cooked breakfast every morning and grilled 2 or 3 nights. Marley, the resident dog is wonderful [if you're a 'dog-person']: very sweet and gives a great sense of security at night. As another reviewer so accurately put it, the owners are as 'present' as you want them to be. If you need anything, they're there....if you want privacy, they get that as well. We arrived in the evening and they had stocked the fridge with the essentials for breakfast. Great people--we hope to visit again soon!

Bert's place is great. Very clean with a great relaxing feel to it. Bert and his family did a great job in ensuring our holiday was a good one.

We stayed at Bert's cottage for a week and we really enjoyed our stay. The communication was timely and easy, Bert was so helpful with the questions we had before traveling. The cottage is clean and convenient. The kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals. We enjoyed our breakfast and some dinners on the private front porch. We could spend relaxing time in the courtyard with the swimming pool. Bert's family have been so nice and accommodating, we felt at home right away. With a car, it is convenient to get to anywhere on the island. Thank you so much for all the hospitality, we would recommend the cottage to anyone traveling to Aruba!

Our vacation at Bert and his family were great. The apartment is new, very spacious and cosy, with its own kitchen, air-conditioned bedroom, a living room and a bathroom with hot water (this is in Aruba not self-evident). There is also a pool available. The family has received us warmly and made us feel right at home. They were very helpful, helped us with difficulties and the organizing of restaurants and so on. Many thanks for the nice time in Aruba. When we come back, we will certainly stay again there.

You won't find a better place to stay in this price range in Aruba. The cottage and property is like new, actually most of it is brand new now as 5 more cottages are almost ready for rental. This cottage will be the largest of the rental cottages and has a private entrance and front porch and patio area. Bert, Rejane & Marley were great hosts although we really only saw them when we arrived and the day we left because we basically just slept and showered at the cottage. They are very friendly and will be as helpful as you want them to be. The location is good, you are centrally located between Orjanested & Palm Beach and directly inland from Eagle Beach (5 minute drive). Not being in walking distance to a beach may seem like a negative but because you have to pack up and drive you are much more likely to spend time on the various differently beautiful beaches on Aruba. Our favorite spot was the west end of Eagle Beach, there's chairs for rent near the Divi trees or you can rent chairs and a Palapa from Passions Beach Bar. Passions also has great drinks! Our favorite meal was at The West Deck in Orjanested.
