    Doesn't sound so great. No views, No garden, very long walk to beach in hot weather.
    Is this area a poor one compared to other locations? The advert is so misleading. Yes I agree thread should be moved. Andrea, sent you pm

    Shame as house very nice inside. ESP those high ceilings. Maybe Pos Abou a better area?
    Beginning to think that a very short walk to Eagle Beach is going to be hard to find? If say we drive to eagle beach from caya tumba 46, is there beach front parking?

    Free parking sounds just great. I guess a 2 minute car drive no big deal. If $40,000 spent on face lift, I am sure caya tumba would stand out. Main concern is back garden, it says 540m2 or so. ( not sure if lap pool will fit). The green infront of house, was it palm trees ? Or divi trees ?

    After feed back from Pos Abou house I can compare the two to which one is better. Yes inland you can get bigger and better for your money, but for us, retiring to Aruba is all about being near that wonderful beach. If I could not get near beach , I would head for alto vista (amazing sea views )
    I look forward so much to the pos abou report.
    This Forum has to be the best in the world.

    I agree. Shouldn't a real estate agent be doing a lot of this leg work or the seller?

    I couldn't agree more. There is only so much Andrea can convey with photos.
    As much as I trust her opinion as well as her husband's, their tastes and expectations may be much different than yours.

    I also agree - you really need to see the houses yourself. Most every house (except in a development) is different as well as the neighborhoods.

    It's worth the price of airfare and lodgings to see the place in person
    and to really have a look around the island.
