About David and Helen

We're IT Professionals

David and Helen purchased this villa in 2012

Why David and Helen chose Aruba

We bought this property because we liked it's unique layout and location:

L-shaped with a totally private courtyard, Villa is airy and well ventilated - all rooms have cathedral ceilings, and all closets are walk-in.

It takes about 10 minutes to walk to Palm Beach which is one of the best beaches on the island plus upscale shopping, eating, entertainment.

We love snorkeling so when we come here we rent a car and go to our favorite Boca Catalina beach which is just 10 minutes drive.

We live in US and come to our house in Aruba every year. While we are back in US our villa is taken care of by a very good management company we hired.

Guest services, cleaning, gardening, pool care, etc - all taken care off.

We love our house - hopefully so will you if you choose to rent it.

Best,

Helen, David

What makes this villa unique

Unlike the crowded hotels, our home gives you both the seclusion & privacy &

the convenience of a great location just outside the hotel area, close to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, sister in law and I rented this house for 12 nights. Location was amazing. Walking distance to beach, restaurants and bars was less than 10 minutes. House was very spacious inside and out. Great pool to cool off in. Plenty of lounge chairs and a covered lanai if you needed to be in from the sun. We had a very relaxing vacation at this house.

Amazing As Always

  • 5 of 5

Once again Villa Monplaisir did not disappoint This is our 3rd year staying at this villa. Helen and David are amazing to deal with as are their team of people in Aruba. It is a fantastic house located just 5 minute walk from all the high-rise hotels, restaurants, bars, casinos and beach.

The villa itself is very well maintained and stocked with the essentials.

The Main supermarket is a 5 minute drive from the villa. There is an amazing outdoor lounge and seating area at this villa with a pool. The villa is very private with a wall surrounding the pool area. we will definitely be back in Jan 2018.

We had a wonderful family Christmas vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Villa Monplaisir. My husband swam every day in the beautiful pool and we all enjoyed the sunshine and perfect weather. We walked to a different restaurant every night and enjoyed many different venues. The area beaches were beautiful and clean and were so close that we could walk to them and and then come back to our own private villa and enjoy time to read and relax on the deck. The house was very well supplied and roomy. We even had our own beautiful Christmas tree. All of our questions and queries were answered immediately and everything was exactly as the owners had promised. We highly recommend this villa to all families and guests who are wanting their own space and privacy while at the same time having the beaches and restaurants within walking distance. Thank you David and Helen for a wonderful vacation home!

Excellent Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 2 young adult children and teenager daughter stayed at Villa Monplaisir for 2 weeks...We truly enjoyed our stay. David and Helen are so thoughtful. It was our daughter's 25th birthday during our stay and they surprised us with flowers and a gift card for dinner. Very much appreciated! The Villa was lovely, very comfortable, the location was perfect, the young adults were able to walk into the strip within minutes. We rented a jeep and travelled the entire Island which was very easy to navigate thanks to the document provided by David. Palm Beach is less than 3 minute drive and Eagle Beach a 6 minute drive. We enjoyed family time in the private pool and took advantage of the board games (I lost at Monopoly..ugh hate losing to the kids)...The service from David and Helen as well as the staff were top notch from the minute we requested the reservation until check out. We would highly recommend Villa Monplaisir and if we return to Aruba, we know where we will be staying. Thanks again to David, Helen and Julie...really enjoyed my experience with you!!

Excellent...even if we got rained IN!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you will need to have an amazing vacation/holiday in Aruba! It's centrally located so you can be either a walk or short drive away from the best beaches! It was equipped with everything we needed, including board games to keep our 4 year old son happy during the worst rainfall the island has seen in several years. The owners are not only gracious but overly caring and generous. They exceeded our expectations which can be difficult considering we are New Yorkers. I'd recommend a vehicle as the home does come with beach chairs which is much cheaper than renting them. Moomba Beach and Arashi were our favorites. We will be back for sure!

i want to start by saying thank you so much to David and Helen! From the moment I emailed with questions they always replied promptly with answers and information. They were wonderful to work with. They were always available for any questions about our up coming trip. Even though I never met them face to face I feel like they have become a great friends. My husband brought me here for my 50th birthday and oh my was it the best birthday ever! We looked at many places to stay in Aruba, and even though this was more space than we needed, since it was only the two of, us we choose it. I'm so thankful we did!!! Their home was wonderful!!! It was very private and yet so convient to everything. It has everything you could possibly want or need. With it only being the two of us we only used one bedroom but the bed was very comfortable! I can't say enough good things about our experience from start to end. This island and house are beautiful. We did rent a car and drove around the island and visited different beaches. We enjoyed it so much my husband and I made the decision that this will now become a yearly place to spend at least a week. We will be booking a week next year with David and Helen. I'm writing this review as we are ending our week and about to make our way to the airport, and neither of us want to leave :(. If you are looking for a house in Aruba don't let pass this one up! I just want to say a special thank you to the two of you for my birthday surprise! Between the two of you, my wonderful husband, and this beautiful happy place it will be one I'll never forget!

Walking distance -- Palm Beach, a beautiful white sandy beach where the the Pro Am wind-surfing tournament is held annually. There are also plenty of white sandy beaches up and down the west coast and within driving distance; most within a 10 minute drive. All beaches in Aruba are public (this includes the beaches at the hotels) and most have free public parking areas. Also, most of the hotels have umbrellas and chairs, but may charge visitors for use. Boca Catalina, one of the best snorkeling locations on the island, is only a 7-10 minute drive.

The public bus stop is only a 5 minute walk; the buses provide service to most of the beaches, Oranjestad, and, with connections, the south and middle parts of the island.

Other Activities: Boating, shopping, kayaking, miniature golf, tennis
