    Oranjestad-Harbour House

    Looking at the proposed new development in Oranjestad called a Harbour House. Can anyone provide some feedback on living in that area near the cruise port as well as the development itself. Thanks. Any information would be helpful.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum!

    you need to google harbour house aruba.
    there are many many links there.

    the main building of the complex has been there for years, early on, there were some difficulties with the building being up to"code" and other issues of which i am unaware.
    we drove by it on wenesday and it appears that a full renovation is in the works.

    the location is DIRECTLY alongside where the cruise ships tie up.

    Welcome to the forum! Have you been to Oranjestad before? No beach, and very crowded when ships dock.

    If you want to be downtown it's a great location. Glad to see it is being renovated and put to use. Like others have said, it'll be busy when the ships are in port and no beach access.

    Wow. Very impressed with quick feedback. Thank you. Yes, we do know that it will be a busy location. We like the idea of having easy access to a variety of things.
    If anyone has additional insight I would be happy to hear.
    Have a great day.

    I have seen cruise ships dock directly in front of it. Your ocean view will be a cruise ship view up close and personal.
