However you define paradise this will fit the bill! We did many of the things on a "Top 10" list the owner provides which was a great starting point for exploring. I think we hit beaches on all ends of the island, took in the Natural Pool, did a number of water adventures including parasailing, enjoyed frozen drinks at tiki huts and made sure to take some time at Andicuri Beach! This spot was spectacular; in fact ALL of the beaches were fantastic. Like nothing we’ve ever seen. I cannot tell you how often we commented about the perfect location of this home. It was just far enough away from the hustle to have some peace, yet close enough to be somewhere we wanted to be within 5-10 min. As a family that likes to be active early, then head back to relax, swim, snack and regroup for later, this home gave us the space we needed with all the comforts of home. Most nights we found ourselves on the patio with a glass of wine, just talking about our day. It's not easy to get all of us to agree on anything...this home did just that. Cheers!
Response from the owner We are so glad you had such a great time in Aruba. We are very grateful for you taking the time to share your experience so extensively. It is very helpful to future guests and especially those new to Aruba. There's a reason it's the most re-visited island in the Caribbean and we hope you'll be back to enjoy it again and again. Thanks and Happy Travels! Mike and Kim GreatArubaVacationHomes. com
“A home away from home!”
The house was nice and comfortable. It was truly a treat to have a home away from home. Though we were more than the house could sleep, we were all able to gather around the poolside or patio table for lunch and dinner; which was great. An excellent market and beach were very close. Thank you for letting us stay there!
Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for sharing your experiences. That was a big group, but the more the merrier. We are glad you were able to gather there and make such great memories while on the island together. We hope you can make it back to Aruba again soon and we wish you Happy Travels! Mike and Kim
“Deliver me to paradise!”
This past December we stayed at the house known as Aruba Escape, just before staying a week at Palm Beach Sunset Villa.ape. Both houses are owned and managed by Mike. I wrote a review (5 stars) for each. Mike was extremely helpful and was a great resource for rental car information, information about travel and all the different activities there is to do and see in Aruba. He even provided us with a Top 10 list of must-do activities and a restaurant and attraction guide. His house, the subject of this review which he calls Aruba Escape, was perfect for us. It was in a million-dollar neighborhood close to Palm Beach but even closer to Eagle Beach. We spent almost every day at Eagle Beach then came back and enjoyed to beautiful pool at the house. The lounges for the pool and the beach chairs Mike provides guests for the beach were very comfortable. Usually when we rent those things are afterthoughts for most owners (junk), but Mike clearly pays attention to detail at his properties. It was just my wife there for a pre-holiday vacation and it was a great one. We had the place to ourselves, but as advertised this house could easily accommodate 10-12 people. We didn’t understand how a house that could sleep 12 would not be too big for just us, but it wasn’t. It fit us perfectly. So I would strongly recommend it for couples looking for a romantic getaways as well as family vacations. The pool was great and very private. The water was warm, even at night. The covered patio was great for hanging out, eating and reading. We picked our own coconuts (off the ground) and enjoyed mangos that were juicy and delicious. The kitchen was large and well equipped and there was a full size washer and dryer for laundry. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. We loved Aruba Escape and loved Aruba. We look forward to going back and are talking about dates already. It will definitely be at one of Mike’s homes (he has three), if they are available. We also submitted another review for our stay in his house known as Palm Beach Sunset Villa, which was another great experience. West Deck Jerry

“Amazing, Wonderful, Relaxing Vacation!”
The house was everything we were hoping for. It accommodated our family and had everything we needed. The house was very clean, up to date, and within walking distance to everything. We enjoyed our stay SO much! Will be back! Thank you very much for everything, you were very accommodating to any extra requests we had. Thank you!

“BEST VACATION SPOT EVER”
This property was perfect and truly a home away from home. This is the second property we stayed at that Mike owns and manages. The location could not have been better (Well the other one was great too). Both were close to beaches, shopping, casino, bars and restaurants and just 15 minutes from the airport. The property itself is beautiful, well appointed and very well-maintained. The bathrooms are quite large and very modern, beds are comfortable, and the house is equipped with everything and anything you might need to make your vacation stay comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable. The pool was spectacular. When home we spent most of our time in and around the pool and on the patio. The restaurant suggestions and top ten lists provided by Mike before our stay came in so handy. It took all the risk and guesswork out of what to see and do and where to eat. We were armed with all the information we needed for the perfect Aruba vacation. What a great stay, great vacation and kudos to Mike for making his vacation homes so family-vacation friendly! We loved kicking back, putting our your feet up and really, really relaxing and enjoy the beauty of Aruba. We can’t wait to go back! Thank you!
Response from the owner Thank you Kristin for taking the time to write a review and share your experience with others. You are quite the wordsmith! We look forward to you returning to Aruba and sharing our homes. This being the second of our homes that you rented and stayed in, we hope you found both equally wonderful! We also have many more reviews on listings 929289, 3493931 and 3841103 on HomeAway.com for potential guests to check out. Happy Travels! Mike
This house is a wonderful place to stay in Aruba! It is close to amenities and the best beach on the island- Eagle Beach! The house has a wonderful pool and has everything you need for a comfortable relaxing stay! Best of all is the privacy! Much better than the crowded beach hotels close by. Michael was a great host! He told us everything we needed to know before leaving and made our stay effortless. We enjoyed pier dining at Pelican and Bugaloe for great sunsets. Also liked Driftwood in Orangestad. Can't wait to bring family and friends back to enjoy Aruba!
Response from the owner You are correct about Eagle Beach! What an amazing place. Thanks for sharing your experience and for writing the review (and your kind remarks about me). We love it in Aruba and love staying at our home, Aruba Escape, as we call it. It's so relaxing, yet close to all the fun! We hope you return soon! Cheers, Mike
“8 amazing nights to relax and recharge”
We stayed at the Eagle Beach villa for 8 amazing nights. The location was great, about a mile from Eagle beach and a large grocery store. The villa had an open layout and we felt right at home. The kitchen was nicely updated and clean. The Beds were comfortable and the air conditioning units kept us nice and cool for sleeping. During the day we would open up the windows and patio doors to enjoy the refreshing breeze and trade winds. Our favorite part of the day was returning from Eagle beach and then relaxing in the villa's private pool. The owner Michael was really easy to work with and always provided quick responses to our questions. Will definitely be returning soon.
Response from the owner Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it and know that those considering staying out our home will appreciate it too. We look forward to hearing from you soon and we look forward to you visiting Aruba again. Thanks, Michael
I stayed at this beautiful home this past February with my family of 6 and my parents. We had the most wonderful experience, except for a few problems with our airline. Not only was aruba a wonderful place, but the house was magnificent. Very spacious and comfortable. The pictures don't do justice to the pool and patio. The kitchen had everything we needed and we loved the round dining room. The internet was readily available - we connected right up and could enjoy it inside and outside. The covered patio was a great spot to dine and enjoy drinks after dinner. There was always a nice breeze. The guest house worked out great for my parents. They could retreat to it for peace and quiet and join us when they wanted. It was air conditioned and had a nice kitchenette and a big shower. They really enjoyed it. As for the rest of the island, there was so much to do and see! My family had a blast exploring. I would highly recommend a car to anyone visiting aruba so you can see the island. Eagle Beach was the most amazing beach I have ever seen! It was just a short drive from the house. The Natural Pool, the Tunnel of Love, and the Bat Cave are must-see, too. While we were able to stock plenty of food in the house, the unique dining experiences we had on the island were memorable. There are chain restaurants, like Tgif, but I would suggest trying Papiamento Restaurant, Madam Jeanette (just around the corner) and Barefoot on the Beach. These local places not only had great food, but great atmospheres, too. This vacation was truly the best I've ever taken. My family and I can't wait to go back! The owner has held our dates for this august. I definitely recommend staying there, but the third week in august is taken! Lol
Response from the owner Thank you for staying for staying with is. We very much appreciate you taking the time to write to share your experience. It is so helpful. We hope you can make it to Aruba again soon. We would like to offer you $100 off of your next visit or $100 off for any friends or family who stay with us. Happy Travels! Mike
“Best Place I Ever Stayed In aruba”
After visiting aruba for several years, my husband and I decided to rent a home and have friends join us. What an amazing time and the right decision renting this beautiful home. Upon arrival the house was very inviting and exactly what the owner described. The rooms were large and the home was very clean (which isn't always the case with other homes I've rented). It had all the amenities from a fully stocked kitchen, cooler for the beach and beach chairs. The neighborhood was exceptional and we were able to take family walks in the evening with comfort. The location of the home was perfect. Just a 2 minute ride to Super Food and 2 min ride to Eagle Beach. We spent alot of time at home around the pool and ate dinner on the large outdoor covered patio. The owner made sure we were prepared for arrival by emailing us directions and check in instructions one week prior to our departure (which was a relief and it made our travel day much less stressful.) We are already booked to return to this amazing home. It was truly the best Vacation we have had. Kim R
Response from the owner Thank you for the great review and for sharing our home. Your dates are booked for next year, so you are free to dream of the sun, sea and sand until then. We look forward to hearing from you again and please forward us your best sunset picture. Thanks! Mike and Kimberlie Gillar
“Amazing House, Great Owner, Awesome Trip!”
My wife and I had initially thought about renting a Hotel Room for our stay in aruba -- and we are so glad that we rented Michael's house instead. The place is perfect for a group or family. The location is honestly less than 5 minutes from the beach and having the private pool in your back yard is so much better than sharing with hoards of people at the resorts. Eagle Beach is calmer and less hectic than Palm Beach and parking & finding a palapa is extremely easy. At Michael's advice, we rented a Jeep from Royal aruba and drove everywhere on the island with the top down. My wife and I both Loved it! Royal initially gave us a Jeep that had trouble putting the top up and down. We wrote them one email and they showed up an hour later with a brand new jeep for us... the service was perfect. The House and the location can't be beat. Drive 8 minutes north to the Palm beach area where there are resorts, casinos and popular restaurants for everyone to use. Madam Janette's is around the corner. Baby Beach is a 30 minute ride South and there are a few Food/Grocery stores within 3 minutes of the house. This place is great - I would love to rent again and certainly recommend renting this house or any others from Michael. He was great to work with and ensured that our vacation ran smoothly.
Response from the owner Thanks for sharing our home and for taking the time to share your experience with us and with TripAdvisor travelers. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Eagle Beach Escape, our home in Aruba. We love it there. The pictures don't do it justice and they certainly can't begin to explain how much fun you will have in Aruba, but your kind words and great review helps! Thanks again and we look forward to you visiting again! Mike and Kim
