Beachhouse Apts. is a nice quiet and affordable place to stay. The owners are nice and unobtrusive. Only downside was the oceanview apt. we were in had the kitchen area including the frig, outdoors. Sort of a tradeoff. The pool is indeed nice albeit small. We'd consider staying there again for sure. We're trying another place down the road a bit for our stay next month.
My favourite place on the island is Boca Catalina for snorkeling and sunbathing, and the windward side of the island for exploring.
My husband and I are staying at Beach House Aruba for the 3rd time this coming May. The beach right in front is too shallow, but right by the fishermans huts you can swim. We generally go to Boca Catalina to swim and snorkel.
The units are cleaned every day and the owners are very nice people. If you have any further questions pm me.
