    Thanks Jackie! It's no different in the states. We built a new house that started in 2013. It was suppose to take 4-6 months to complete. We were in in 10!

    We met with our real estate agent last week, Michel Frank, the owner of Realteza Real Estate. He and his wife have been good friends. We sat and talked with them for about three hours, just catching up and discussing the island.

    We have a meeting with the notary tomorrow morning. Since we won't be on the island at closing we have to assign a POA and they will also let us know what further documents they made need. We'll get our final amounts due and get another tentative closing date. I imagine we'll close sometime late April.

    We're almost done moving in for now and we'll be staying in our unit the last two nights before we leave.

    The management company has given us the tentative rental rates for our unit and we'll post them soon in another thread with a link to pictures of our unit. We decided on short term rather than long term rentals, so that we can have more freedom to use our unit.

    We're getting closer...

    Great to hear that you are in your new apartment. We had been thinking about giving Aruba Breeze a try. Do you know how far the walk is to the beach? Do you share the beach with LA Quinta? Do you know how difficult it is to get a palapas there? Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    It takes us old folks about 4-5 minutes to walk to the beach. We usually go to the beach for an hour to an hour and a half, so have never looked for palapas. We just grab our beach chairs and plop down in the sand close to the water. We'll look more closely the next couple of days and try to answer your specific questions better.

    We had a final meeting with the notary and they gave a tentative closing date of May 8th, which is fine with us. By then the resort will be completely finished and ready for occupancy, although the developer said that they were already taking reservations for April. We will be returning in October for our own use. We don't have to return for the closing. Everyone has been so good to us. It has been a very happy, stress free process...so far.
