    Congratulations to you too. There was a lot of sales activity going on in this area while we were there in March.

    Great question. It'll be interesting to hear the answers. As you read you'll see we have a plan in place.

Question for you and anyone else who can give advice -- I am going to be renting my unit to vacationers, and am using the onsite manager (Owen). For the rental income, I'd like some or all of it to be transferable to the US without paying crazy fees (Arubabank charges a maintenance fee, transfer fees, deposit fees (if someone other than me deposits I believe), etc.. I don't want to be fee'd to death here.....does anyone have an idea as to how to get my rental income to the states easier/cheaper? Thank you all!

    We chose not to get a sofa bed but they can be found. We wanted a piece that would wear well with tenants and last for awhile so we picked it up at S Ford Furnishings. They seemed to have the best value for the money spent. There are other locations that are less and more expensive though.

    We bought the teak furniture at Home and Nature, again for durability. Very nice people.

    I will also add that both stores deliver with no additional charges.

    We also looked at Crown. It wasn't bad quality, we just wanted something better. Keep in mind that they discount the their pricing by 25% if you're paying by cash or credit card.

    You can also try Hagemyer. A lot of their furniture is Ashley. Seemed to be a little pricey for the quality.

    If you're looking for modern furniture try E3...$$$$

    Another place to look for nick knacks is the Flora Store. They have a lot of items to choose from.

    We really haven't looked for artwork yet, so nothing to add there.

    Hope this helps.

    It's official...we finally closed this past Wednesday the 21st, almost six months from the signing of the purchase offer. It took us a little longer then normal, as we had to wait for the project to be partitioned into individual units by the taxing authority, determining annual taxes owed. It was really no bother for us, as The Pearl just made a "soft" opening the first week of June, and we're not headed back to the island until early October. We gave the Notary POA so everything was signed and dated without a need for us to return to the island. All we have left to do now is send sign the contract for the management company and we're ready to start renting. Hopefully everything will be satisfied by mid week.

    For anyone that is interested in investing in a home in Aruba we only have three words of advise...GO FOR IT!

    The process for us was not difficult. One just has to be a little patient with the email communication. It would have been much easier if we were fluent in Dutch and Papiamento though. Everyone we worked with did an exceptional and professional job. Hats off to everyone involved!

    Now all we have to do is get back to the island. The trip ticker can't move fast enough!
