Description from owner

Welcome to the Aruba Penthouse, a perfect vacation paradise for families, friends, honeymooners and couples! The Aruba Penthouse is the jewel in the exclusive Owners Residences of the Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort, just steps from gorgeous Eagle Beach which is always featured in the TripAdvisor top 10 beaches in the world!

The Penthouse is located on the first class Divi Village & Golf resort and is just a few minutes leisurely walk through the resort to the most beautiful, yet uncrowded beach on Aruba, and is directly across from the resort's main infinity pool with swim up bar and water slides!

Two stories of luxury and space await you and your family at the Aruba Penthouse. The Penthouse is the ONLY 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath penthouse condominium at the Divi Resort and contains everything you and your family would possibly need for a fabulous vacation. In addition to its spacious and beautifully decorated interior, what makes the Penthouse completely unique is its totally private second floor terrace – a whole other outdoor room and garden oasis connecting you effortlessly with the wonderful Aruban breezes, sunsets and sunshine!

Walk out onto your private terrace from the second floor great room and hop in the Jacuzzi, flop in a hammock or watch the sunset from your choice of several comfy couches with a beverage from the wet bar. The Penthouse guests spend many happy hours on the terrace, whether in the morning watching the island come to life with your morning coffee, in the afternoons having a lazy lunch or a snooze in the hammocks, or in the evening cooking on the grill, sitting in the Jacuzzi and relaxing with a long drink!

The Penthouse terrace is landscaped with lush tropical palms and plants, and furnished with several choices of comfortable gathering areas, sun lounges, hammocks, a shade trellis, a dining table which seats 10 comfortably, and a professional standard gas grill.

The terrace is directly accessible using the interior spiral staircase or from our own private elevator to which only you hold the key.

In addition to two spacious ensuite bedrooms with luxury bedding decorated with local art, the first floor of the penthouse has a large and comfortable living, dining room and fully equipped kitchen, which open onto two balconies with seating overlooking the golf course and a lovely stream. It is a wonderful area for birdwatching! There is also a small office with full size computer, free internet and a printer for your use! Wander up the spiral staircase from the living room and you will arrive in the upstairs 'great room'. It is a wonderful entertaining space with a flat screen TV, wet bar with refrigerator, interesting décor and furniture.

The master suite on the main floor has a king bed, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, large marble master bath with double granite sinks, double water jet rain shower with massaging wall jets and separate toilet and bidet room. The second bedroom on the main floor has a king sized bed, which is convertible into two twin beds upon request, walk in closet, flat screen TV/DVD, and private bath with rain shower. You will find the third private bedroom upstairs, with direct access to the deck with a comfy king bed. Also upstairs, but not connected to the bedroom is a 3rd full bath with rain shower.

The only thing missing is you!

The Penthouse is packed with everything you might need to enable you to just show up, unpack your swimsuit and hit the beaches! Our local manager can even do pre arrival grocery shopping for you for a small fee.

The Penthouse has a fully stocked “beach closet” with coolers, beach toys and accessories (chairs & floats) for your use. There are music players and CDs scattered in every room, and outdoor speakers so you can take your music out onto the terrace with you.

Should you choose to prepare a few meals at the Penthouse and dine on the terrace in the evening, the kitchen has everything you would need to make a memorable dinner. In addition to the grill, there is a large gas range and stove and plentiful cooking utensils and appliances. We also keep the Penthouse stocked in basic spices as well as paper towels, napkins, and basic cleaning and laundry detergent.

Beds: 3 King Beds, 2 Twin Beds, 2 Sofa Beds

About the area

Lose or find yourself in the beauty and peace of Eagle Beach - Spectacular Eagle Beach and the smaller but just as gorgeous Druif Beach is less than a 5 minute stroll from the Penthouse door, or you can hop on the free golf cart shuttle that the Divi runs constantly around the resort. Eagle Beach is world renown for its miles of white powdered sand and is one of the many sea turtle nesting areas on Aruba. This area of beach is blissfully uncrowded and quiet with a relaxed vibe. Gentle waves and clear, turquoise water make for easy swimming and snorkeling off the shore. If you are more adventurous you can hire a sea kayak, parasail or take a wild ride on a banana boat! The Divi Owners Residences at the Divi Links Resort are newly constructed, luxury condominiums which enjoy the full benefits of the Divi Resort including restaurants, golf, tennis, fitness centre, swim up pool bar, etc. The beach has beach huts and loungers free to our guests. Unlike at other condos for rent on Aruba, you won't have to lug your own chairs to the beach or pay to rent them every day. Just bring your towel (also provided free by the Divi) and cooler (which we provide)! The nine hole golf course is exceptionally well maintained, with weekly tournaments and specials and you can also take lessons. Additionally, there are 5 tennis courts, non motorized water sports, a fitness center and a rock climbing wall. Windows on Aruba is renowned for gourmet cuisine and romantic views. There are several more casual dining options at the Resort as well. Because the Penthouse is located in a first class full service resort and not just a 'condo complex' you have the peace of mind knowing you will be taken care of plus all the added extras you won't get from staying at a non-resort property! The penthouse local manager will also take great care of you, can do pre arrival grocery shopping, and will make sure everything about your stay is perfect!

“We'll never use a hotel room again for vacation!”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2016

This property looks very good online, but upon arrival we were all shocked, amazed, and grateful that it is FAR better in person! Our experience in the Penthouse was very memorable and priceless. We had 3 couples on our visit and privacy was never an issue. The owners are attentive in ways you won't understand until you book, and that experience remains throughout your stay and departure. We have traveled a lot, and stayed in a variety of hotels, inns, condos, and house rentals, NONE of them have had the endless amenities that the penthouse provides. From the welcome beverages, to the fully stocked kitchen, to first-aid/ sewing kits, to the laundry w/soap/dryer sheets, air mattresses, in house linens, beach chairs, coolers, flippers, snorkels the list goes on.. the office w/ computer/ printer etc., the music/ speakers, hot tub, hammocks and tons of outdoor furniture and GRILL for cooking the catch of the day if you go fishing with "Hats-Off Charters." There really is minimal need to leave the penthouse, at times I think we felt guilty for not being there more on our trip. We had breakfast in on most days- lunch and dinner a couple of times too. We made the most of the wet bars, wine fridges, and blender- making drinks in big batches and using the coolers to bring them to the pool or beach. In full disclosure, we had a couple of minute issues, I emailed Elizabeth who responded lightning fast with a solution. This place felt like home. We were surprised that we never encountered another person coming and going from the penthouse building- it felt so private, quiet, and peaceful. This place by far exceeded our expectations, and that of staying in a traditional hotel setting. You are getting what you paid for, and more, with the penthouse! We all planned to return on the second day of our stay. You can feel confident in this rental. I am a tough reviewer and have relatively high expectations, but I could find little to complain about here! If you are contemplating this opposed to a "room or even suite" you would do yourself a dis-service. The ocean views are distant, but it really didn't make a difference to us because, the sand is only minutes away or less if you use the trolley. The master bedroom is the best bdrm/bath in my opinion but they are all great! The 2nd fl. bdrm seems most private but the TV is not in the room and that room is brighter/ harder to sleep-in, which should be done on the beach anyways :) Beach is serene and seating is never a problem
