This wonderful spot is just the place for a great vacation for up to 12. And if you have two families coming down to Destin, Aruba gives you all the space you need to enjoy the best vacation ever.
Two families stayed at this vacation home, 10 total. We did not even use the second bedroom on the second floor because all the kids wanted to stay together on the third floor. They had plenty of room with the bunk beds, fold out couch and a mat on the floor.
The house is beside the swimming pool, just a few feet away and the beach is within walking distance. There is a transportation cart that can assist you to the beach area, we never took advantage of it because the walk was not that far.
We had a great experience and would recommend this vacation property to anyone wanting a peachful vacation.
The hose was not ready at the 4:00 pm check-in time and we had to wait over an hour for the cleaning crew to leave before we could unpack. We did not have any comforters for the beds until the day after check-in. The television reception was terrible every channel was snowy (TV is important when you have small kids). The 300 yards from the beach is incorrect it is more like 1000 yards at least a 7 min walk. The pool is nice and the house is located very close to it.

We have stayed in Aruba the last 4 years and enjoyed every stay. We looked forward to returning every year and would be glad to rent there next year if you still have it in your rental program. Keep in touch. This year it was up for sale so we showed it for the Realtor many times.
The Aruba is a GREAT home we fell in love with it and can not wait to rent again. I wish it was a little closer to the beach, but walking does a body good right? We had a few small issues with the house...not remotes for the TVS in bedroom, the upstairs bathroom tub would not drain took about 30 min. after shower for all water to be drained. There was not enough cooking supplies (pans,pots) for a large family like mine. The biggest concern I had was the porches off 2nd & 3rd floor, my 5yr old son & 3yr old niece were able to fit through the railing slats so we were not able to enjoy sitting outside..This is a simple fix I am sure SAFETY was my biggest concern.
We will for sure try and rent this location again :)
