Aruba is perfect. It is warm; it is sunny; it is welcoming; and, it is gorgeous. Vacationing here is truly an opportunity of a lifetime. However, your choice of accommodation can make or break your experience of living here. To enjoy the most impeccable time, you must consider renting an Airbnb, for they have an endless number of advantages to offer.
1. Enjoy the local flavor
One of the best things about renting an Airbnb for your vacation is that you get the fantastic opportunity to enjoy the local flavor through architecture and interior designing. Since local hosts originally build most Airbnb homes as residences for themselves, they feature elements that are true to the essence of Aruba.
Unlike caked-up hotel rooms, where, in an attempt to be acceptable by all incoming guests, managements do not infuse elements of the local tradition into their rooms, Airbnbs let you experience what it feels like to be an Aruban. They are generally open, feature large windows that highlight the fact that they are beachfront facilities, and are colored brightly, giving a distinctly Aruban vibe. If you care for authenticity in even the slightest, you would love to live here!
2. Warm and hospitable hosts
Perhaps the most amazing thing about Airbnb homes is that they allow you a wonderful chance to step into extremely warm and hospitable people’s houses. Where, although you might be going as a guest, you are greeted with both arms open and a vigor that makes you feel at home.
Large chain hotels have hundreds of visitors staying at a time, meaning that there is only enough attention they can give you in terms of customization and comfort. With Airbnbs, the case is different, for there are generally at most one-party renting at any given time. This means that the hosts often go out of their way to customize your stay the way you like it and care for you.
3. Insider knowledge
Airbnb hosts are not only welcoming, but they are also knowledgeable. Since they are most likely to be locals, for whom Aruba is their home, they know details about the destination. Combined with the fact that they are happy to answer questions and do not mind a back and forth, it means that you have in them your personal concierge.
You can ask them for advice on where to go, where to eat, what to try, and what to avoid. Plus, since they do not have corporate ties with restaurants, etc., unlike hotels, they have no incentive to misguide you. So, you can expect genuine and reliable suggestions from them.

4. Impeccable customer service
Let’s face it. No destination or accommodation service is perfect. However, it is not their perfection that matters. The most crucial thing is customer service and willingness to hear your customers.
It may be possible that you run into some inconvenience during your stay in your Airbnb home. However, rest assured for your hosts will be extremely responsive and more than willing to immediately resolve your issue.
5. Hosts set their own rates
While this might not sound the most appealing, for one could assume that hosts may set ridiculously high prices for per-night stays, this is not the case. In fact, it is quite the opposite.
You find that Airbnb homes/condos/villas generally cost a lot cheaper than your average hotel rooms and provide access to several amenities, things hotels would normally charge you for. Plus, since most Airbnb rentals feature large, fully functional kitchens, you have an additional opportunity to save money on buying food, for you can cook your own meals.
6. Enjoy staying at the best places in Aruba
If you ask someone which might be the best spot to stay in Aruba during your vacation, you will be told that it is close to Palm and Eagle beaches. However, the problem with residing in beachfront hotels is that they are insanely expensive. So, you will essentially be trading the vitality of location with your budget. However, you do not have to make any such compromises with Airbnb villas and condos.
They provide you with the perfect opportunity to experience living in proximity to the excellent spots that Palm Beach and Eagle Beach are and that too at comfortable rates. You will be only a few meters away from the impeccable ocean and exciting beach parties. And the best of all – you can wake up to the comforting sounds of the ocean without worrying that you have wasted your entire budget on affording to hear them.
7. Best pools
Oftentimes, there are slump days, even during one’s vacation, days when you want some privacy and do not want to be out in public and interact with others. But that does not mean that you cannot enjoy your own company.
Our Airbnb homes/condos/villas feature the best pools in town, providing you with the perfect, private recluse you need to recharge yourself. You can sit by the pool, soaking in the sunlight, or splash around the water, or do anything that makes you feel happy!
