Utilities are definitely expensive in Aruba (especially water since Aruba needs to "make" their water at the desalination plant) - but given that there is no heating bill, I find the total monthly utility cost for a house in Aruba is similar to the monthly utility cost for the house we own in the USA (in upstate NY).
    that can be correct if you leave all AC's running 24/7 with the door open maybe. I use electricity and water for my family (3 persons, 2 bed, 1 bath, 2 AC 24/7) and I pay half of what you claim...) I hope you found your leak...

    Stanley do you have a pool? A pool itself will run well over a $100 a month on its own...She mentioned a 3 BR and 3 Bath...you have a 2br with 1 bath...not sure we are comparing the same house and hence the difference. Do you like your place at 73F or 67F. Are you in full sun or shade? We have another owner that I want to say was paying over 400 monthly for a 2br condo as they are in the sun all day and really can heat up the rooms. All that said, sorry Chris you had to deal with someone questioning your ACTUAL experiences. Sorry, Stanley you seem way off on this one and seem like you are talking down to Chris.
