Greetings/ Goededeg/ Bon Bini Fellow Arubans and Guests of the One Happy Island!

My husband and I are new to the forum, but not to the island itself. We are Canadians, currently living and working in Toronto, Ontario. In preparation for our retirement, we have visited quite a few Caribbean islands and have decided that Aruba is definitely the best choice.

Last fall we finally bought a beautiful 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom house in the neighbourhood of Opal in Noord (10 minutes walk from the beach), and spent half a year renovating and landscaping. We plan to permanently relocate here as soon as we are done with working.

In the meantime, we are putting our 'paradise' on the vacation rental market. Please see the link to our posting on Airbnb below and let us know if you are interested and/or have any questions!

Thank you GETA62! (I wish I knew your real name) :)

The renovation has been a very interesting project indeed: lots of research, design ideas, and of course a task of finding a good contractor. We are very happy with the results and will definitely recommend the team of professionals who did the job!

Thank you Brady Bear! Yes, that's the plan: to quit work in Canada as soon as I can afford it and live in that house :)
