We had an amazing stay at the Caribbean Cozy Cove. The house is tastefully decorated and very well equipped. The garden is beautiful and has a nice big pool. The villa is a very private place, surrounded by a wall with a remote operable fence and has its own carport. The excellent and discrete care of housekeeper Lucy, and her watchdog Toby, makes everything complete. The service of the rental organization was also very good. We were met by Olga at the airport and she guided us to the villa where we were shown around. We would absolutely recommend this accommodation to anyone who%u2019s planning on visiting Aruba. Having the luxury of your own villa (and especially one like this), is so much better than being cramped up in a hotel and having to compete for some private space in and around a shared pool.

Had a wonderful time and agree with all good comments below. People of Aruba are very friendly and truly seem to welcome tourists. The villa was absolutely lovely, very clean, beautiful plants, secure, comfortable beds, great shower, well-appointed kitchen, nice pool area, wonderful outdoor dining area and Lucia was so kind and sweet. She kept everything sparkling. Baby Beach was our favorite and the grouper at Soenchie's (sp?) was wonderful as was the service. If, or maybe I should say when, we go back we will definitely want to return to A Caribbean Cozy Cove!

FABULOUS COZY COVE, LOVED IT
Matthew and Anna were extremely helpful throughout the entire process of renting this villa. During our stay they were only a phone call away with great recommendations for the best supermarket, etc.The listing was accurate, the photos posted are exactly what this beautiful and relaxing property has to offer. The property is clean and very well maintained, beautiful pool. BBQ and outdoor dining were perfect, plenty of chairs to lounge in after a day of exploring the island or hanging on the beach. The villa is centrally located and the perfect to go tour the island. I recommend hiring a car, we used Value Car Rental who collected us from the airport. Matthew met us at the car hire place and we followed him to the villa. Lucia is the lady who cleans, and maintains the villa, she was wonderful and always very helpful as much or as little as needed. Toby her dog was an added joy, very sweet and gave a sense of security. The property is very secure with its gate which prevents any local goats from possibly eating the vegitation. I love Aruba and all it has to offer, the people are extremely friendly. I travelled with my husband, 2 boys, 5 & 8 yrs, and my in-laws in their 70's. I have already recommended this property to friends and family. My family and I will return without a doubt. Mirandi is a lovely restaurant for a romantic dinner, Baby beach is the best for snorkeling, very calm waters for youngsters. Eagle beach is our second favorite beach and good jet skiing; both beaches are beautiful. Moomba beach bar and restaurant is fun to watch the sunset.

We were greeted promptly by Anna at the house after getting our rental car by the airport. She gave us a tour of the home and property along with phone numbers and other information to help us during our stay. She and Matthew were also available to use via email and Anna was quite helpful and responsive. Even prior to our arrival, I emailed with Anna several times with various questions to obtain more information to prepare for our stay and Anna was more than helpful and quite responsive. Anna introduced us to Lucia, the housekeeper on site during our tour. She and her dog, Toby, live in an apartment (one room home) in the back corner of the property. She was available to us as much or as little as we liked. We truly enjoyed her company as well as Toby's each day. Being dog owners ourselves, Toby was such a sweet and pleasant surprise for us. Lucia was available for additional help with laundry as well, which was perfect for the day we went horseback riding. During our stay we enjoyed snorkeling, scuba diving, island touring/exploring in our jeep, horseback riding (but as inexperienced riders - would not repeat), and the most exciting of all sky diving with Rick and Tice for our anniversary! We visited Arashi Beach, Eagle Beach, Baby Beach and Rodgers Beach. Our favorite was Rodgers Beach because upon arrival we were the only ones there and it was so calm and soft white sand with no sea shells to cause discomfort while walking. All the beaches are public but beach chairs are needed unless you want to rent them. Our favorite restaurants were El Gaucho's (best Argentinian Steakhouse), Flying Fishbone (best atmosphere and worth the drive south on the island to dine on the beach right at the water's edge), and Papiamentos (romantic dining around a pool). Each one provides a different setting and menu but all are very good. After 8 nights in Piedra Plat, we were sad to leave and miss Lucia and Toby after being home for just a little over a week now. This is a MUST STAY and we WILL return! Anna and Matthew are a pleasure to work with and we can't wait to rent through them again. Jen & Clint Medina, OH
