One night stay.

  • 3 of 5

De kamer is over het algemeen ok. Wat is tegengevallen is de kast, die ogenschijnlijk nooit wordt opengemaakt. Bij het openmaken kwam er een heel muffe geur naar buiten, die vrij lang is blijven hangen.

Verder konden we de tv niet aan de praat krijgen, waardoor het wel een vrij lange en vervelende vooravond is geworden, temeer omdat we geen auto hadden en ook omdat u duidelijk had aangegeven, dat u tussen 9 pm en 9am liever niet gestoord wenste te worden, wat uiteraard uw goed recht is.

Felt like our own private villa in Aruba!

  • 5 of 5

Sadly we missed Tu on our visit, but Nataly was an incredible help- such a hard worker and kind hostess, she made sure we had everything we needed- including smiles all day long! And what a lovely place Casalina Gardens was- well cared for (room decor could use a little help & wifi worked internittently- but it was certainly clean with a beautifully peaceful, shared garden) and very safe (so much so that my wife & I enjoyed watching movies each night on my cell phone from the comfort of our patio while the wind washed over us and the gardens before bed)! A short walk from the villa through a mixed island neighborhood takes you right to the Marriott Stellaris (the walk is always safe, albeit rather dark at night, though you may end up walking with a few dogs, a few dozen goats, or a few lizards- all generally oblivious to the humans nearby). Please watch all cars along the walk- everyone here is happy & friendly, but pedestrians are clearly second-class at best.) And once at the Marriott, the beach is free to all as a public beach, so make your way to sun & surf...oh yes, & Eduardo's (@ the Playa Linda Resort) for an Acai/ fresh-fruit protein breakfast bowl- YUM!

A great place with a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

Tu worked with my wife and I on planning a stay in Aruba and was very informative, helpful, and prompt with every question or concern that we had. Even despite unexpected changes that affected our travel plans, Tu relieved a great deal of our stress and worries by being understanding of the situation. Tu's professional care and excellent hospitality makes the already wonderful Aruba even better!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Tu was amazing, she went out of her way to help me several times during my stay. She picked me up and brought me to the house on the first night, and even dropped me at the airport the day I left as she was dropping her daughter at school.

I stayed in one of their studios which had a very comfortable bed and a bathroom inside, and an outdoor kitchen and patio seating area. The wifi was fast and reliable the whole time, the air conditioning worked well, and their gardens are beautiful.

They have a car their guests can rent, but I chose to walk during my stay. I was a quick 10 minute walk to the beach, through a nice neighborhood.

No complaints, everything was exactly as described, I would definitely stay here again!
