In February 1994, Greg and Hugh met on the beach in Aruba near Sailboard Vacations after a satisfying afternoon session of windsurfing. After some casual surfer chat, they began to windsurf together and began a friendship that would include at least one annual windsurfing vacation and a yearly ski trip. When it's not windy, there's always hopping into the water in front of ArubaHouse and snorkeling at some excellent reefs. While the guys were out windsurfing their wives, Holly and Betsy, became good friends as well. Their daughters are growing up like cousins seeing each other each year in Aruba. Many hours have been spent together seashell hunting, walking along the beach, swimming in the pool, shopping in Oranjestad, and visiting the Butterfly Farm. Often the evenings begin sitting on the patio at ArubaHouse with a glass of wine, staring out at ocean and watching the spectacular sunsets.
Twelve years later, the two families became real estate partners in the ArubaHouse.
