    Thumbs up Hello from the Cold North

    Hello, just introducing myself to the members of this board. I'm Sherrel (aka Sunbee). My husband and I have been to Aruba 3 times now. We love it. We have also been to Cozumel - but nothing is as great as the people are in Aruba.

    Our next trip is September 2010 (just a month before my 40th birthday. We were looking into getting a Villa this year - but our friends didn't seem to keen on the idea.

    I found a place called the Aruba Boardwalk - just above the Marriott's hotels and not quite on the beach. We love the pool more than the ocean any how.
    Does anyone have any thoughts on this hotel/apartment or have been there before? All our friends would like their own "space" rather than a "room" like what they would get at a Villa and I thought this place would be perfect.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!
    Sherrel

    the boardwalk is a nice quaint place
    very clean
    it welcomes all, but mostly windsurfers stay there

    have you looked into renting a timeshare


    go to the timeshare section of this forum and see if there is anything for your dates and price range
    also too go to redweek.com


    welcome to the forum!

    sunbee, here is another for you to look at, the Coral Reef Beach Resort. Everybody has their own space, kitchen, roll outside beds, beach?

    Thanks everyone. We did find a Villa from the Homeaway site. We hope to put our deposit down this week. We aren't going until September, but the house is exactly what we are looking for.

    Thanks - for a while they were pretty unresponsive. It must have been me because I'm an email-holic and mostly take care of business in my real job over email. The "one email a day" stuff always irks me. Hopefully now that they have our initial deposit we will have more communication from them. I have tons as of right now. The other two couples that we have going with us have the most questions and I have volunteered to be point of contact for all of us. Hopefully the questions don't take "days" to get back to us.
