This was my first visit to Aruba. I was traveling solo this time. Stella and Darwin helped make my week long stay super memorable and a pleasant one! Thank you so much! The Studio is located in the mid-scale residential (safe and quiet, local) part of the Noord and is exactly 6 mins by car from the Fisherman's Beach. As a kiteboarder, this is golden! It also was great for avoiding all the tourist trap and traffic in the big hotel areas by the beach. Stella made me feel comfortable, safe and secure before, during and after my trip. Every detail is exactly as she described and clean. She even provided me with a list of great local restaurants (my fave is Zeerovers in Savaneta at least 30 mins drive from the Noord yet well worth it!) and recommended reliable car rental places. On site, Darwin is the manager who helps with your check-in then he also is a great source for recommendations. As a frequent traveler and Airbnb user, I highly recommend this listing for a more local and relaxed experience in Aruba.
The apartment was clean and comfortable, Stella was extremely responsive to our needs travelling with our baby. Very nice stay!
Good cosy place!
We had a great stay at Stella's place! It was a 3 minute drive to Arashi which was our favorite beach. It was also a short 7 minute drive to island yoga which we went to every day. We also cooked quite a bit, so the kitchen amenities were great! Darwin was flexible on both check-in and check-out times. He was always available via for any questions. Thank you!
This is a great studio that provides you with everything you need. Stella and the property manager Darwin would check in regularly with us to see how our stay was going and if we needed anything. The neighborhood this studio is located in is very safe and charming. Also, you are five minutes from the beach by car, which was fantastic, because we were going to the beach every day during our stay. A bonus was that there was a drying rack outside of the studio to hang your towels and swimsuits on, so you didn't have to worry about finding a place inside to dry your stuff. I would highly recommend Stella's studio if you are renting a car!
A perfect little studio, exactly what we needed for our stay in Aruba. For our puropses it was nice being so close to the high rise hotels where our travel compainions stayed, but without paying their prices, of course! Stella was great and very responsive. we would stay here again without a second thought!
We hadden een zeer vlot en goed contact met zowel Stella als Darwin. Studio was echt wat je nodig hebt voor een vakantie. Omgeving/ Buurt is veilig en rustig. Locatie is dichtbij palm beach. Zowel ontvangst als afhandeling was prettig. Zeer vriendelijke mensen.
Zeker aan te bevelen!
The apartment was great and looked even better than the pictures. It was cozy and had exactly what i needed. I would recommend this appartment to others and will definetly come back next year.
Great stay! Studio was cozy and very clean. Stella and her familia erre súper nice!

Als allereerst complimenten voor de goede service en mailcontact. Via marktplaats op de advertentie gereageerd en bij het eerste contact al het gevoel dat het goed zou zijn.
Prettige studio in mooie en rustige straat. Precies groot genoeg voor ons 2. Een huurauto via een bedrijf (Hotwheels) geregeld en die stond goed geregeld op de dag aankomst voor de deur. De sleutels waren aan Darwin gegeven en hij had ze in de studio klaargelegd. Zeer prettig contact met Darwin en de communicatie tussen Stella en Darwin en ons.
Alleen maar lof! Wij raden deze studio zeker aan bij anderen. Voor deze prijs een hele goede deal en heerlijk vakantie kunnen houden.
