Nice spacious room with king-size bed and private bathroom.
Our home offers a great ocean-view location in the desirable neighborhood of Malmok. There are some nice little coves where you can swim which are a 1-minute walk away, or you can go snorkeling at Boca Catalina (3-minute walk). It's only a 3-minute drive to the hotels, restaurants, bars, cinema and malls, or a short bus trip (there's a bus stop right in front of the house). Guests can sit and relax on the front or back porch.

Sonia and Steffan's place felt like home away from home. It is right across a few popular snorkelling spots where tours stop by and let people off so we never felt like we had to pay for any excursions (except for the mangel halto power snorkelling tour with Aruba bob which was totally worth it).They had snorkelling fins and masks available but only had to borrow the fins. The room is huge with a lot of storage space. There was air conditioning available but we rarely used it as it was enough to just have the windows open to let fresh air in. They were so helpful with providing info about the island and we were able to try out some of the best restaurants- Gasparitos and El Chalan but at the same time, quite respectful of our space. We rented a car to tour the island so the grocery stores and other beaches were less than a 5 or 10 minute drive. If you love watching a sunrise or sunset, this is the perfect spot- less than a 30 second walk across the street. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who would want to stay away from the crowds and enjoy a truly perfect beach vacation! PS. They also have the nicest and sweetest cat i have ever met, Luna, a cat who appreciates belly rubs!

We absolutely loved our stay at Sonia's house. It made our trip so much more special to be able to stay in this charming quintessentially Aruban island home. It is beautiful and uniquely appointed. The location and ocean views are amazing. It is right across the street from a nice snorkeling cove and 2min walk from a beautiful small beach. This place is close to all the main beaches and other attractions (can be reached either by bus, car or slightly longer walk) while still far enough away from the tourist crowds. And we really enjoyed Sonya's company. She is very hospitable and wonderful to talk to! Will definitely stay again and highly recommend to friends :) Thank you again for everything!

Place is far from touristy area of the island, though only ten minute drive. Public beaches are immediately outside. We enjoyed waking early, greeting the house cat, and walking down to the beach and relaxing before the midday heat. We rented a car instead of busing everywhere, because it was quicker to the east and southern areas of the island. Alba, Sonia's housesitter, was very attentive and had. good suggestions for restaurants and sights.

Where do I begin? From the moment of pickup at the airport, I felt very welcomed! Sonia is an amazing host with great suggestions and full of knowledge about Aruba. The property is just as described. It has a very authentic and comfortable feel. Having a bus stop right outside the door made it easy to make trips in and out of town. Very easy to use and convenient. Short walks to coves for soaking up the sun and some of the most beautiful sunsets just outside the front door. I'm positive I'll return and hope that Sonia's Place is available!! Thanks for a great stay!!

Location is next to a nice cove for snorkeling and another short walk further north is a nice beach (the room is away from hotel area and shopping). Sonia and her husband are super nice friendly and relaxed.

After 22 years off the island (16 years in Holland) I've recently returned to the home where I grew up to fix up some rooms to rent on Airbnb. Eventually we hope to set up a veggie garden (quite a challenge in this warm and arid climate; everything on the island is imported) and to somewhat reduce our ecological footprint.

We enjoy the refreshing turquoise Caribbean Sea on our doorstep and don't miss the winters at all.

There's always time for a sunset drink or a nice bbq on the back porch.
