My wife, daughter and I arrived at Aruba on a Tuesday and took a $20 taxi to the caretakers job to pick up the truck. From there he led us to Eileen's home. The pictures are all accurate. It's located in a quiet rural area called Kamay. First impressions of Aruba are the heat, humidity (even with the constant breeze) and the very bright sunlight. Air conditioning is a must, and we welcomed it when at the house. You definitely need to drive to reach a lot of the sites, which we spent the vast amount of time doing (Ostrich Farm, Phillips Animal Farm, Desalinating Plant, Aloe Vera Plant, Natural Bridge, California Lighthouse, Fort Zoutman Building, Archeology Museum, 7 Beaches, a closed Drive-in theater, the old Gold Smelting building, The Old Oil Refinery, the Submarine ride, the Explorer underwater boat ride, Butterfly Farm, the Alto Vista Chapel, and many other locations. The major supermarkets (Ling & Sons and Super Foods) reminded us of Cosco and BJs except the the selections were much greater and cleaner. Lots of international selections which we loved. Prices are a tiny bit more expensive than in NYC but it was expected due to most everything being imported. The Aruban folks are very friendly and helpful. I purchased an Aruba GPS map for my Garmin Nuvi and it was a lifesaver on several trips to the eastern and souther sections of the island where roads have no names and people are very hard to find. I recommend it as a backup. We missed going to the Arikok National Park but we will be coming back. Cell service on the island is either through Setar or Digicell and at the house it is spotty or non-existent even though I have a Galaxy S4 with a international plan. We could not find any WiFi at the house except something called Kamay Wireless that had low signal and locked. So, we simply went to the many wireless hotspots around the hotel areas and made our calls and checked emails there. I also use Google Maps to plan trips and wifi was needed to do that. Aruba is a night island. Most businesses open after 4:00 pm. Most, but not all, restaurants were the same. We took the time to finally research and find where to go for lunch or sometimes breakfast. Nights on Aruba were nice. The breeze and clear night sky was exhilarating. The Shoco Owls on the property were fun to watch as were the lizards and iguanas. All in all we had a wonderful time and will be coming back to Eileen's house as soon as time and money allow us.
