Location, location, location….the three most important features of any property, and our house does not disappoint! “Villa Aruba” (also known as The Garden Villa) is situated in the nicest residential beach area of Aruba. Our villa is just across the beach boulevard and one block from Boca Catalina beach. To be more precise, it is just 250 steps from our front door to the beach and Caribbean Ocean.
Boca Catalina beach is complete with palapa huts and is known as one of Aruba’s best swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving areas. The surf at Boca Catalina beach is very calm so it’s suitable for all ages including older folks as well as children. This area of the island is also great for water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and just about any other water sport you can think of. In fact, the international windsurfing competitions are held here every year just a mile down the beach from our villa!
All beaches on Aruba are free! And Boca Catalina is the small quiet beach situated between Malmok Beach and Arashi Beach. A favorite with locals, Arashi, Malmok and Boca Catalina all have gentle currents and ideal clear water for snorkeling and viewing underwater life.
Arashi Beach, just north of Boca Catalina and close to the California Lighthouse, has palapa huts, a large parking area and new features including showers, bathrooms, and a walk up bar serving food and drinks!
Our Villa is also conveniently located with a 5 minute drive to Palm Beach (40 minute walk in the beautiful Aruba weather!) and the High Rise Hotel area, restaurants, supermarkets and casinos. We are an approximate 25 minute drive from the airport.
