There are several pools, two workout rooms, tennis, squash, racketball, saunas, 24/7 gated community and more. We do have a 2 bedroom which we are in the process of updating-by Jan. we will have all new furniture and it'll be repainted. https://prestigevacationsaruba.com/p...om-condo-p416/ I love our view, but I think we will be losing some with the construction next door. Prestige Vacations has a lot of rentals, as does AirBnB, Homeaway, etc. I would say if you find something on one of the third party sites, like AirBnB and you see the contact is a realtor or management company, go to their site directly because it will cost you less.
    Thank you Robin, this is great information. I will for sure keep this info and check things out.

    QUOTE=SusieLovesAruba;381623]Hi folks, going to give an update on our activities - first, the weather has been wonderful! Nice sunny and hot days, thank goodness for the trade winds. Evenings are breezy and cooler., so enjoyable. Yesterday morning, 9-16 my friend Ken decided to climb Hooiberg, he did great, took him 20 minutes. I stayed at the house and was in the pool and chilling. Yesterday late afternoon we drove over to the Natural Bridge - was gorgeous. I've never been to that area and it was magnificent. We stopped at several places and took pics. Today we went to Baby Beach but was way too late to get a palapa and it was crowded already (10:30). Stopped at Rodgers Beach and tried to put up our Neso shade-tent - did not work - way too windy. Walt, you mentioned that previously that the winds would be too strong and you are correct sir. Drove to Seroe Colorado point and took a few pics, so beautiful. From there we drove through the Saventa area and headed to Eagle Beach our favorite. Thank goodness we had our cooler packed with a lot of water and drinks and food. By the time we reached EB it was 12:30 or so and was fortunate to find a palapa, paid for the lounge chairs and off to enjoy the ocean. It wasn't very crowded today and the water was chilly again when you first get in, so refreshing. We stayed there about 3 hours and headed back to the house.

    I've been doing some research for my next trip. Wanting to stay at Eagle Beach area and was looking online after we got back at the Oceania Residences. Do any of you know much about those? Robin, is that your and Stu's timeshare? That is my goal for my next trip is to stay at a location spot overlooking Eagle Beach. I find the Oceania Residences gorgeous and would want to find a ocean front with balcony, etc. If anyone has info or suggestions please let me know some details and/or additional info. I was reading on their website various apartments info-location-cost, etc. I'd love to make that happen.

    This evening we are grilling baby back ribs, I've had them marinating all day, yum! I'll update tomorrow, not sure what we are going to get into but another beach day for sure. Have a good night folks.

    Thanks Bri - I'm going to for sure check into the info and try to make it happen. Very beautiful property from what I saw.

    Yesterday was my birthday (66) - I decided I'd like to stay at the house and spent the day lounging in the pool, listening to some reggae and enjoying the awesome weather. We grilled ribs again, yum, boring birthday but was great for me to spend it in Aruba and be chill-laxing.

    This morning we went to Arashi Beach, no palapas available but we got an umbrella and chairs and had a great time - the water was beautiful and felt amazing. We had plenty of snacks and drinks and enjoyed watching folks come and go, it was pretty crowded. There were several pelicans feasting on fish, I took a few pics and added them to the link above. Tomorrow morning we are going for our PCR test here in Santa Cruz - we will be heading home Thursday. Hard to believe our vacation is about over but vacations always go fast don't they.
