This was our 4th visit to Aruba and also to Waycamaya Condos and with each visit it was just as spectacular as the first. It was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated...then you walk out into this garden that is hidden from the road and you feel as though you have walked into your own private paradise. It’s just gorgeous and dreamy. With all of the plants groomed to perfection that surround the inviting pool. With the birds chirping and water-fall that makes this tranquil sound as it drops into the pool below. There is an ease that comes over you when you know that for the next 14 days this would be our very own ‘secret oasis.’ Far enough away from the crowds, yet close enough to Palm and Eagle beach which made it easy to go there at any time and enjoy all the night life and beaches whenever we wanted to.
We rented condo 6A however, we went into a few of the other condos and they were laid out very similar, so if 6A isn’t available there are other condo’s that are nice as well.
There is a grocery store right across the street which made it very convenient for us, if we forgot something. Although, don’t worry about getting groceries in Aruba because around almost every corner you will find a grocery store. Ling and Son was about 10ish minutes away which is where we did most of our grocery shopping.
During our stay we used the bbq at least 8 times, because we like to eat dinner in, used the pool to cool off after a long day adventuring or going to various beaches around the island. The kitchen has all the essential utensils, pots, pans ect. There is a Styrofoam cooler, chairs and beach towels available as well that can be used to take with you to the beach.
The property is located in a prestige part of Aruba which is called Noord. Plan to rent a vehicle to get around in, because there is so much that this friendly, safe island has to offer. From the deep blue, white sandy beaches to the rough waters, cliffs, dirt roads and hidden gems like old abandoned fishing huts and caves that can be found along the shores of the island. You are also close to great snorkeling spots like Arashi and Malmok beach. The lighthouse is also only about a 7 minute drive which you can watch a spectacular sunset.
If you are looking for a place that is affordable, close to all the great beaches, nightlife and restaurants while still maintaining a private serene atmosphere then this is definitely the place for you to stay.
