Welcome to Aruba and the Parrots' Nest

This beautiful home is located near the best beach in Aruba, Palm Beach, which is close to Eagle and Arashi
Beaches, the California Lighthouse, Divi and Tierra Del Sol golfing, casinos, fine dining and just about every
water sport imaginable, including wind/kite surfing.  Walking out onto the covered patio you will be offered
a view of a cactus grove with wild green parrots and iguana, a Brazilian stone lounging area surrounding a
463 sf (43 sm) backyard swimming pool (beautifully lighted at night), and a view of the salt pond, and in the
distance, the Caribbean and its spectacular sunsets.

The house is fully furnished and has 3.5 baths and 4 bedrooms; prices vary with the season and year.  One
of the bedrooms is the master bedroom with private bath, two bedrooms have twins beds that can be
converted to king beds, and the fourth is a larger bedroom with a king size bed, mini-kitchen and private
bathroom.  Check out time is 11:00 am and check in time is 4:00 pm; this will allow the maid plenty of time to
get the house prepared for our next guests.  Pets are welcome for an additional cleaning fee of $50 per

The living room features two sofas, two love seats, and a dining table that seats 8.  On the patio and around
the pool, there are two tables that seat 10+ people comfortably.   Also provided is a gas grill.

Cable TV offering 57 channels is hooked to the TV in each room that has a TV.  In the living room there is a 3
CD/cassette/am-fm entertainment center.  And throughout the house, there is high speed Wi-Fi access
through our wireless router.  Also, the house has a telephone that can be used for local and international
incoming calls and outgoing local calls.

A five minute walk is Palm Beach, a beautiful white sandy beach where 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
3 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.  For more on bus routes, beaches,
recreation activities, and other island information, go to our About Aruba section. This web site contains

If you enjoy a little gambling, the Marriott Beach Club Casino or Ritz Carlton Grand Casino is only a few
minutes away.  There are many other casinos just a little farther south toward the capital city of Oranjestad.  
Also, Oranjestad has world class duty free shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, and bars, all within a 5-10
minute drive.

There are many rental cars companies outside of the airport terminal; we recommend Tropiccar or Super
Car Rental for very competitive rates and excellent service.

Again, welcome to "One Happy Island"
