About Brett Kelly
My wife and I have been vacationing in Aruba since 1985. We have stayed in many different types of hotels and time shares across the island but fell in love with The Residences at the Divi Links property. A year ago we decided it was time to buy our own place in this paradise. We chose this condo penthouse property over other condo facilities because it was the only one that offered both privacy and hotel like service. The other condo facilities on the island were very dark and almost too quiet. I wanted to be able to pick up the phone or go to a front desk if I needed too but still have my privacy. This gave us the best of both worlds. We hope you will enjoy our slice of paradise. The people are wonderful and the weather is always perfect. It is hot but always with a slight breeze so you never feel overheated! My wife and I can give you numerous list of places to eat and things to do! Have fun and enjoy. Call us if you have any questions..
Brett Kelly purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Brett Kelly chose Oranjestad-West
My wife and I chose this location to call home because it has access to the best beach on the island. The island of Aruba is very small (only 19 miles long). There were basically 3 locations on the island to consider when we were looking to buy a home. The high rise area which has all the major hotels and has become extremely crowded (tough to get space on the beach). The downtown area which is where all the ships come into port and is truly a 'shopping area'. The 3rd location is considered the 'lowrise' area. We fell in love with this area and chose to call this home because this part of the island has the best beach, is quiet yet has good access to casinos, restaurants and activities. There is no fighting for a seat on the beach and in our opinion truly captures the heart and soul of 'Aruba'.

Recent Visit Aug 2019
We just visited the property for our weeklong honeymoon. Everything was spectacular. Aruba is so easy to navigate so we rented a car and after driving/walking through every resort in the high rise area we decided that this location in Divi Villages was our favorite. It's close enough to Palm Beach that getting there takes just a few minutes by car, but also removed enough so that it's peaceful at night. The actual condo was superb. Everything was clean and the private rooftop with jacuzzi puts it over the top. We will be booking again!
Great place and great time
Just visited this property and had a great time with my family. Brett and Lisa have everything in order and their place is beautiful. The check-in process was easy, the accommodations were outstanding, and Brett and Lisa were very responsive to questions....nothing but good things to say!
From the moment we walked in the door I was ultimately happy. The location was great and all of the extra amenities was “icing on the cake” . I’ve shared my experience with friends and coworkers.
Summer Vacation with teenagers
We took our 4 children on a summer vacation. This penthouse was perfect for us. Brett was quick to answer any questions we had along the way. He sent us a package the week before we left explaining everything there was to know about the property. It is a bit ways from the resort area but we had a rental car so it was easy to get there when we wanted to have more going on. Perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax. Pool was great, beach was beautiful. Kitchen came in handy with 6 of us. The private rooftop...... HEAVEN. Adults and kids loved it very much. Although kids did want upgraded technology hook up to the speaker with their iphones.
Relaxing family vacation
The Divi Resort is a sprawling complex offering many different options for families in the low rise area. We took a couple of trips up to the high rise resort area where there is more shops / restaurants and water activities but we enjoyed coming back to our condo and preferred being at the Divi over the high rise resort area. Condo worked out well for our family of 4 and the swimming pool across from the condo was our favorite with the hammock always open for an afternoon of reading. The condo was quiet, great beds for good nights sleep, sofa on the balcony was perfect for afternoon naps, laundry machine came in very handy and there wasn't anything we were missing. Getting around was easy and we enjoyed the walk to the beach each day.
There’s not much I can add to what others have already said. I didn’t message Brett much before we left but I sure did our first few days there. He hung in there and helped as much as he could. (Thanks again). I will add that my wife and I traveled without older daughters 17 & 21 and we liked the secure feeling around the compound. We just got back to Tampa and would stay in the same place if we went back.
Thank you for your kind words
Glad you enjoyed
Hope you can return soon
Brett, lisa & Savanna
