“BRILLIANT!! could not fault it”

My wife and I stayed in the Mango, one of the two rental casitas owned by super hosts Kiki and Frans situated in a quiet location, but near to amenities.
Our accommodation was clean and modern with two spacious bedrooms both en suite. The outside living area and surrounding gardens are well kept and are a credit to Kiki and Frans. The shared pool is a lovely addition adjoining the properties, big enough for everyone.
Beach chairs,towels,cool boxes,and snorkel equipment are all freely available,
Thanks to Kiki and Frans our visit to Aruba will be a memorable one, from Frans picking us up to and from the airport, sharing their knowledge about the best beaches and restaurants, and for the helping us to hire a car for our stay.

Mooie accommodatie. Erg netjes en verzorgt.

Frans en Kiki zijn lieve mensen waar je, je direct bij thuis voelt. Ze zijn er voor je wanneer nodig. Ze hebben mooie woningen tot in de puntjes verzorgt. Alles word keurig bij gehouden. Van woning tot tuin en zwembad. Je hebt alles tot je beschikking voor een leuke vakantie. Wij vonden het in ieder geval top!!

“A great, spacious and clean location for a great vacation at a wonderfull Island”

Aruba is a great island for a wonderful vacation. The first time we stayed at 'the Palm Casita' and it was very good. That's why we stayed here again this time. This time we stayed at 'the Mango Casita' and it was great again. The next time we go to Aruba we book again at Kiki & Frans. They are very kind peole who are willing to help and suggestions for a pleasant holiday. The apartment is spacious, fully equipped, offers privacy and a good swimming pool to lounge and cool off after a long day at the beach. The location is perfect. Near the beautiful beaches, eateries, Oranjestad and centrally located for the other sights. Really recommended!

Perfect location

Family of 4 includes 2 kids. We enjoyed our stay in this perfectly located home. Mins from grocery store, mins away from Eagle beach, 10 mins away from main strip and palm beach. What was great was having the owners on site always there to give advise and recommendations. House was very clean and had everything you need to make you vacation a relaxing one. The pool in the back was nice to have a quick dip in the afternoon or late evening. Would definitely come back and stay here. You do need a car to explore this great island.

Wonderful stay!

We`ve stayed 10 days in February. Frans & Kiki were great, very helpful when needed. Excellent location, very close to everything, beaches 5 min drive, SuperStore 2 min drive. The house is very clean and very spacious. Pool is great for the evenings. Need a car to go around the island.

Great location for a lovely holiday!

In August 2016 we've stayed in the Palm Casita at Bubali Garden Homes for a week. The reception by the owners (Kiki & Frans) was great, they're very friendly. The house is clean and very spacious for four people, it has everything you need. Beside this, they have a BBQ which you can use. There's a nice pool (that lights up in the evening) in the backyard that you share with the people in the other casita. Both casitas have their own terraces which you don't share. The house we had, had even two terraces which was perfect because we could choose to sit in the sun or in the shade. Kiki and Frans are great people who are always there to help you with whatever you want or need and they even brought us a few times to the beach when we didn't have a car yet. We highly recommend this place!

Having booked the day before arriving it turned out to be a great choice! Frans and Kiki's place was ideal to chill out in a quiet yet comfortable location with everything we needed to hand. Both were really helpful to recommend places to see on Aruba and where to eat out. Once we hired a car we were able to make the most of each day - Frans + Kiki let us borrow beach chairs and cooler bag to make our days out perfect! We had a great time and enjoyed the personal touch this place offers. Definitely recommend 🙂

Best place on earth!

This was our first time to Aruba & renting the Palm Casita was the BEST choice for us! It had EVERYTHING we could ask for & more! The owners live on the property which was important to me and they were the kindest people ever! (even gave us a special surprise for our 25th wedding anniversary!!!) We had our own private pool and privacy was not an issue! Coolers, Beach Chairs, Snorkeling equip., lovely thick beach towels and a full size kitchen was a bonus! Beautiful large screen TV (we watched it once LOL-no time ) and if we had any questions Kiki and Frans were there to answer them. Best food places (Zee Rovers for the food and PRICE ) and literally down the street from 2 grocery stores! Beach was 5 minutes away!!!!!! We have made friends for life and are already looking for dates for next year to go down in the fall! Next time I will bring HALF of my suitcase (too many shoes and clothes LOL) and will bring a special something for the owners of this fabulous PARADISE !!!!!!! Would recommend in a heartbeat to any other family and friends to rent this beautiful home! MISS THEM ALREADY!!!!!!! xoxoxox

Séjour formidable à Bubali Garden The Palm Casita

Nos hôtes Kiki et Frans nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement. Ils sont toujours disponible pour répondre à nos questions. La résidence est très propre et très bien équipée pour la vie de tous les jours. De plus, il y a des chaises, une glacière et des serviettes de plage à notre disposition. L'aménagement sécurisé du complexe et la merveilleuse piscine de la cours arrière nous a permis de relaxer durant toute notre séjour. Des vacances de rêves, nous vous recommandons cet endroit sans inquiétude... Certainement, nous y retournerons.

Recommend to anyone

We were fortunate to spend five weeks at this resort. We found it to be very convent as far as location. Supermarkets very close by and the beach was only a few blocks away. The resort offered everything to make your stay a pleasant one. Would defiantly rent again if we have the opertunity to return. The owners were a pleasure to deal with.Would recommend it to any friend or family headed to Aruba. I would recommend having a car as other things are a ways away. Taxi's are available!

Great location and wonderful hosts

We were 2 couples who stayed 2 weeks in the 2 bedroom 2 bath casita and enjoyed it very much. The Eagle beach was a nice walk and there are 2 grocery stores nearby to shop for supplies. The outdoor living space really adds to the comfort. The kitchen was handy but it was fun to try some of the many restaurants for dinner. Great location for an affordable price. Kiki and Franz were exceptionally helpful which added to how much we enjoyed our trip. Thanks to them both for making it such pleasant trip.

Heerlijke plek!!

Bubble Garden Homes is een heerlijke plek om te verblijven als je op vakantie bent op Aruba. Wij verbleven met 2 koppels in de Mango Casita en dat is ons uitstekend bevallen. Het is een centrale plek dichtbij de mooie stranden en supermarkt en diverse restaurantjes. De eigenaren hebben ons een erg warm welkom gegeven met een heerlijk koud balashi biertje! Tijdens het verblijf mag je gebruik maken van strandstoelen en koelbox om zo ook op het strand een lekker koud drankje te kunnen drinken. Ze zijn zeer toegankelijk en altijd bereid een tip of advies te geven. Bij het appartement zit een leuk zoutwater zwembad waar je heerlijk kunt relaxen en afkoelen na een dagje strand of juist ervoor. Kortom een heerlijke plek op een heerlijk eiland! Echt een aanrader!

casita can't be beat-a

Outstanding property in close proximity to Eagle Beach and massive supermarket. Well maintained home with shared courtyard and pool. Not lacking much. The real bonus however is Kiki and Frans who are excellent, knowledgeable, and friendly hosts whom we enjoyed meeting and sharing a few drinks with. Insider information is very valuable.

Absolutely perfect

This was my wife and I's first visit to Aruba. Frans and Kiki were quick to respond to my emails before our trip to answer any questions I had. Upon arrival, they warmly greeted us at the gate and showed us around the property and the house. The Palm Casita fit every requirement we could ask for. Location was less than five minutes from Eagle Beach and less than ten to Arashi, beach which they personally recommend. There are two large grocery stores less than a minute away. The house was well equipped with all cookware, hairdryer, lots of extra towels, AC in each bedroom, plus hot water in the shower. Beach chairs, umbrella, and a cooler was also available. The pool was a welcome retreat from the afternoon heat or for a late night dip. The property is in a quiet area and very private. Frans and Kiki live next door and were always available if we needed anything and were more than happy to share island tips or give suggestions. We can not thank them enough for the hospitality they shared and the lovely rental they provided!

We won't stay anywhere else when in Aruba!

The owners, Kiki and Frans, were at the property to greet us upon our arrival. This nice couple showed my wife and 18-year old son the 2-bedroom casita in which we would stay. It was immaculate as was the rest of the property. There is air-conditionining in both bedrooms, a full kitchen, flat screen TV (we never used it), and comfortable beds. There is a small garden, as well as a larger garden out back. Plenty of outdoor areas to relax, either under the large covered patio or lounging by the pool. Along with the saltwater pool which is cleaned daily by Frans, we were supplied with beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, and an ice chest, which we thought were very nice touches. We spent a week of scuba diving during our time there and the outdoor shower made it very easy to rinse our gear. There were plenty of sturdy clotheslines for us to hang our gear to dry. The casitas are conveniently located. They are within walking distance of Superfood (very nice American style supermarket) and other local markets and restaurants. 5 minute drive to the beach, 7 minutes to the high rise hotels, casinos, restaurants, and nightlife. 10 minutes to downtown Oranjestad. 20 minutes to the National Park. It took us 15 minutes to get from the airport to the casitas. No one was staying in the other casita during our stay, so we had plenty of privacy. Though, Kiki and Frans, live directly behind the property, they did not infringe on our privacy, but were readily available if we needed anything. Thanks again Kiki and Frans for everything! I cannot see ourselves staying anywhere else when in Aruba!

Convenient for the family

We enjoyed our stay in Aruba. The house was really clean and big enough for a family of four. Not a lot of room for restless boys to run around but in Aruba, you always have the beach. Convenient location, close to everything but away from the touristy crowds. Welcoming hosts that live just behind the property so easy enough if you need anything. Boys wanted a heated pool, but it usually warmed up by the afternoon enough for them to be comfortable. Would have liked a few extra kitchen supplies, but overall a very nice, comfortable stay.

Nice vacation and close to everything.

We had a lovely vacation here and extremely enjoyed having use of 4 beach chairs and towels which made our daily trips to the beach that much easier. This rental is just a few minutes away from the beaches, plenty of restaurants nearby also. If you do not have a rental car I would strongly urge you to get one. I use Wheels2Go anytime I am visiting Aruba. They are wonderful and will meet you right at the airport with the rental car. It is far easier going this route. Grocery stores are all nearby as well. The hosts, Kiki & Frans are lovely people who will make your stay enjoyable. They take pride in their property and it shows.

A Great Family Vacation at a Wonderful House!

We brought our family of four for a week's vacation. The casita was perfect for us. It was spacious, clean, and well-stocked with all of the everyday necessities needed to function daily. Our boys enjoyed the pool everyday and we enjoyed being able to enjoy our breakfast on the front porch every morning or just lounge by the pool every evening. Kiki and Frans we're extremely gracious, warm, and hospitable hosts. They were always available to answer any questions we had and they made sure they recommended the various sites and attractions on the island. They maintain the property everyday and it shows! The location is excellent as well as it is near several grocery stores and only minutes away from all of the popular beaches and hotel/resorts on the west end of the island. There are also a multitude of great restaurants nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It was our home away from home.

Great Apartment & Location - Highly Recommended!

My friend and I stayed at Palm Casita for a week and it was absolutely wonderful. We were looking for a relaxing getaway and that's exactly what we found at this property. Conveniently located very close to several supermarkets, Eagle Beach (which is lovely!) and the high-rise hotel area, the apartment is spacious and stocked with everything one would need to feel comfortable while on vacation. I would even venture to say it's bigger and more modern than it appears in the photos. When we arrived, we were warmly met by Kiki and Frans and given a tour to become acquainted with the property. It was evident that they were quite proud of the property, which really feels like a mini resort once within the gates, and rightfully so. The grounds were very well maintained (flowers everywhere!) and the pool was clean and at a nice temperature. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, there were plenty of clean shower and beach towels and the A/C worked great in the bedrooms. We were fortunate enough to book our stay at a time when the Mango Casita (second apartment on the property) was vacant, so this afforded us even greater privacy and exclusive use of the pool, beach chairs and coolers. Throughout our stay, Kiki and Frans remained accessible, but respected our privacy. If we ever called upon them, they responded promptly with care and even took extra time to review maps of the island and give us personal recommendations of restaurants and activities around the island. The booking process could have been slightly more organized, but I honestly think that any bumps were a result of both Kiki and I becoming familiar with how to efficiently use the VRBO site at the same time. I can attest to Kiki being very trustworthy and organized. In fact, my damage deposit was refunded to me before I even boarded my return flight home. I wholeheartedly endorse Palm Casita as a great place to vacation - enjoy!

A great holiday

We were in February 3 weeks at the Palm Casita. It’s a perfect location. The most beautiful beaches (Eagle Beach & Palm Beach) in Aruba are around the corner. For groceries we went to the supermarket (Superfood), that’s around the corner. It’s also an ideal location for exploring the rest of the island. The Californian Lighthouse, Arikok National Park, Oranjestad (the capital of Aruba), and the other beautiful beaches/snorkel spots on the island are within short time easily reached by car. We rented a car to discover the whole island. It is ideal that you can park the car on site. The Palm Casita is a large house with spacious bedrooms, clean bathroom, spacious living room and a kitchen (including a bar where you can sit) with a modern refrigerator. Our favorite spot was the large veranda on the front. Every morning we had had a relaxed breakfast and sometimes when we stayed at home a nice private diner in the evening. The pool is lovely to wake up in the morning or refreshing after a long day on the beach. Behind the pool is a wonderful well maintained garden where we had lunch sometimes and a beautiful spot for the barbeque. Thanks to the privacy, good location, spacious homes, fine pool and nice garden it has a wonderful atmosphere to every need. We had three fine weeks in Aruba and that was certainly contributed by this great accommodation!
