About the property

New listing, over sized one bedroom with large bathroom

Brand New Listing January 2018!! Oversized, huge one bedroom studio with large, glassed walk-in shower. Excellent for single or double occupancy. Ideal for singles or couples that do not want to be part of the hotel crowd and want all the amenities of home in a deluxe Aruba neighbourhood that is safe, quiet and very comfortable yet, really close to the restaurants and beaches.

Our beautiful studio is located in a private home with separate entrance and secured locked entrance from the rest of the home. The home is located a short five minute walk to the Ritz Carlton Hotel and the Palm Beach area. Wind and kite surfing school is very close beside the Ritz Carlton. Lots of parking is available on the beach. A car is not essential, but certainly beneficial. You will want to traverse the island and visit all the beaches that are closeby (Malmok, Boca Catalina, Arashi and my favourite, Eagle Beach (ten minute drive). The lighthouse, Tierra del Sol Golf course, Aruba Tennis and Racquet Club (in the same neigbourhood) and Alto Vista Church are short distances away.

Fitness memberships are available at both the Aruba Tennis and Racquet Club and Tierra del Sol Golf Course and spa at additional costs.

The bedroom has a king size bed with quilted pillowtop mattress and 400 thread count sheets and custom designed drapes and comforter. The floor is travertine tiles with shutters that open on to the expansive travertine wrap around deck. The dining area is directly outside of the bedroom accomodations.

There is a large invertor style air conditioner that services the studio.

The bathroom is incredible with stained glass window imported from Canada and two large side-by-side mirrored vanities. The huge oversized walk-in shower is a delight. Floor to ceiling luxurious travertine tiles.

There is a convenient grocery store, Ting Wei walking distance from the unit. The larger grocery stores, Ling & Sons and Super Foods are ten minute driving distance away.

There is a full size large bar refrigerator, coffee machine, microwave and plates and cutlery for light meals. There is a large teak dining table and chairs for eating outdoors. You will be permitted use of the bbq for cooking.

There is a 55” television with Netflix in the unit and digital cable. Thee is free unlimited internet both inside and outside of the studio.

You will be entitled to use of the washer and dryer located directly beside the studio. There is an umbrella for hanging wet beach towels in the yard…lots of Aruba sun and wind for drying.

The unit is extremely clean and well maintained. The hosts, Dave and Anita are very clean, quiet and attentive hosts. They are on the island for six months of the year and are able to answer any questions about the island for you. They own and manage units on the island and are very knowledgeable.

There is a shared pool located at the house as well loungers and chairs for your use.

Tropical Oasis! - 14B Wacamaya Apartments

  • 4 of 5

This is our second time at the Wacamaya apartments was amazing! Dave & Anita - just a lovely couple who were extremely helpful and responsive during our stay. The Wacamaya Apartments are a true oasis - a quiet, well maintained 26-condo complex with a lovely pool nestled in the middle of them all. We stayed in one of the corner units, 14B, newly remodeled and absolutely gorgeous! You do need a car to get to the heart of the hotel zone and around to grocery stores and shopping. Yes the parking area was under construction but there was parking available on the side of the complex and we had no problem finding a spot. Thank you Dave & Anita for a memorable, relaxing, wonderful stay, we look forward to our next trip to your lovely island! Ruth & Tom

Wonderful time in Aruba

  • 5 of 5

We made last minute reservations and “lucked out” with our stay at the Opal. The studio was large and very clean. It was a short walk on a nearby path to the beach. Anita and David were very accommodating, helpful and welcoming. I would recommend renting a car though, to see the whole island (Arikok National Park and Baby Beach). Aruba is a beautiful, safe island and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

First visit to Aruba

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This was our first vacation to Aruba and it won't be our last!

The room is as you see in the pictures,the bed is super comfortable, the bathroom is super big and very elegant with its huge ceramic shower. We were within 15 minutes on foot to the beach, a skip and a long jump to the pool and Anita and Dave are the greatest hosts, always available if ever you have any questions. The island is yours to explore, you can go everywhere and feel safe on this little island full of sunshine! You definitely need to rent a car to get around, but once you have mastered the important spots, you can go anywhere.

We WILL for sure be seeing you both again soon!

Thanks for making our first trip, one to remember, and want to do over!
