This house is spectacular it was a wee bit of a waste as it was my wife and I only, for such a large house we only used the master bedroom/bathroom and Kitchen/Living room, this home can accommodate a large family without being crammed.
We rented it for 2 reasons- location-we stayed in the same area 6 months prior, so very familiar, and 2- the backyard was spectacular. ( I cannot stress how nice of a back yard/property this is the pool is perfect depth and size, the landscaping is remarkable the owners have done a great job, we found ourselves enjoying all the trees and scenery from the pool, lots to soak in.
This home is situated in a very nice upscale area and felt secure/safe, we enjoy this feeling most in Aruba, and that is why we have been here 3 times this past year, and hope to keep returning back in the years to follow.
The house has all amenities...more towels than needed, a fully equipped kitchen, and a bbq, a safe and a alarm, lit swimming pool... all we needed, check in and out was great, booking was easy and its Aruba the greatest gem we have found, the weather never disappoints, the people are perfect to deal with, and a very peaceful retreat, my wife and I look for a little bit of r&r when we travel to Aruba, this house delivers.
I cannot find anything negative to say about this house, It provided us with another perfect Aruba stay, and I would recommend it in a heart beat. It is true once you go you know

The house was bigger and nicer than we expected. Well maintained, well kept, perfect location close to beach, supermarket and Oranjestad.
It's always a gamble when you rent a house over the Internet or to expectations but this has definitely surpassed!
Anna & Matthew arrange everything in a neat way and I can definitely recommend this organization.

I would highly recommend this vacation rental/home...the house was extremely spacious, clean, modern, and the outside patio was plenty big and the Pool was great. Master bedroom had a very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, and a nice TV the hanging on the wall. The outside landscaping was beautiful and you could tell its well taken care of. The house was centrally located, if you had to, you could walk to the brand new Superfood market in which opened while we were vacationing. Very close to the High Rise hotels, low rise and downtown area. Felt comfortable in the house as it had a alarm system and a safe, and have to say there were some nice homes in the neighborhood. Quiet, peaceful, no loud noises, and we are planning our trip back as I write this and we will stay at this home again. We have dealt with Matthew on two occasions, and he has been thoughtful, attentive to our needs, and a nice person to deal with. We are looking forward to seeing him soon as we love aruba !!

Our trip to Aruba was just what we wanted and more. Our villa home was the perfect vacation get away and was centrally located. It was very accommodating for a party of nine and included all necessary household items. The outside entertaining area was beautiful, very well maintained and perfectly manicured.
Matthew and Anna Smiley were completely accessible, informative and just plain helpful. They provided knowledge of local faire and insight to experiences off the beaten path.
The entire trip was a totally unique experience. We look forward to returning to Aruba-"One HAPPY Island"!
