We visited for a short week with 3 generations of our family, the house has plenty of space for all and the back pool was perfect for our young kids. Used the rental car to go to the beaches: Arashi, Eagle and Baby were our favorites and thanks to Stan for recommending we get there early enough to get a palapa!
Stan was responsive and informative, and Kim & Frank from the office were helpful with logistics. Thanks to all for a great stay.
Zentasy is a very relaxing home away from home. The four bedrooms and baths make it large enough for family or group of friends. Home is well maintained and stocked with towels, spices, dishware and pots/pans. Each room has own tv. There is a large common room and dining area. Major attraction is the patio and swimming pool. The pictures are inviting, but the actual pool is even more inviting. You could stay here and never miss the nearby beaches. Pool and patio also offer privacy.
While beach is within walking distance (about 350 yards), a heavy rain could create a small lake between the house and beach. It is easier to drive, which also opens up more beach locations, e.g. Baby Beach on the south end of the island, or Arashi Beach by the Lighthouse on the north tip of the island. You can see the High-Rise hotels from the patio, less than 1/2 mile as crow flies, but about a mile as the road goes.
There is a small Chinese grocery within a 1/3 mile, where most staples can be purchased. Another 200 yards is a larger Noord Supermarket, with a little larger selection of produce and meats.
The kitchen has nice stove top, microwave and oven. There is a great grill out by the pool. We grilled one night and had snacks available throughout our stay. We also took advantage of the many restaurants over by the hotels...
Stan met us at the house, greeted us with a glass of lemonade and explained all of the amenities. He checked to see that everything was working out and made himself available if we had any issues. Very good attention and service. Great vacation stay.
Great time. Aruba is awesome. Although the house is close to the beach, you can't effectively/easily walk to it, so I would just say it's not walking distance (ie if u were carrying stuff).
House had great set up for family or multiple couples.
Back yard, pool is awesome
Renting a car made seeing and enjoying the entire island possible and it's a must
Great house, AC, wifi, etc.
Will be back without question
The place is beautiful and very functional . The pool area is very private which my wife and myself really enjoyed . Nice bar and grill pool side . We will be back !
The home was perfect with everything we needed. Close to town and shopping. Can't wait to come back!
