A Charming Set of B&B Apartments Secluded from the Mass Tourism of the High-Rises! Apr 13, 2011
Rick and Sherrie made my Thanksgiving stay in Aruba a delightful experience. Their wealth of information about the island and its features proved invaluable to my countless questions. Their overall down-to-earth demeanor and friendly disposition definitely contributed to the home-away-from-home setting.
The actual set of B&B apartments is around 15 minutes from one of the nicer beaches in Aruba (Eagle Beach), though food and convenience shops are only a few minutes away. I would recommend a rental car to travelers who plan to explore the island themselves, yet most tours/activities will pick you up around the corner.
I will forgive them, nonetheless, of being Red Sox fans...
P.S. Do NOT dive with Mermaid Dive Shop - they provide some of the worst service I have experienced and overcharge ($87 after tax for a 1-tank afternoon dive w/equipment?!?)
P.P.S. Aruba has some nice offshore fishing year-round; ask Sherrie about TJ's Fishing Charter w/Capt. Joel and tell 'em Mike sent you!
