We really enjoyed this cottage and it's desert location! There was ample privacy despite there being homes very close by on one side. The other sides are all desert! A 200yd walk brings one to a small hill which affords views of the ocean on both sides of the island. A 10 minute walk and you're at the ocean. Numerous mountian bike trials and dirt roads afford plenty of walking right out the door. We had a Jeep and were able to explore these roads driving to the lighthouse several times and also to Alto Vista Chapel!

The property was clean and well maintained with an array of beach gear including chairs and snorkel gear. The outdoor spaces were comfortable for relaxing and eating and gave the cottage a feeling of being much larger. We would recommend it for a couple or small family. It could use some additional china and glassware (4 or less of each) but otherwise was very well equipped! Stuart was a pleasure and even ran over to help us light the stove after 8 one night, arriving within 10 minutes of our call.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal and sunset at Faro Blanco Italian restaurant right next to the lighthouse. Also had a great experience at Zeerover, for the totally fresh food and local experience. Catch of the day and shrimp plus local sides all delicious!

In terms of activities, we need to be active. We enjoyed the National Park with it's caves, history and rugged 4x4 road to swim/explore around Natural Pool, don't miss it! Also a great horseback ride with Goldmine Ranch and two snorkeling trips. If you want an off the beaten path adventure see RJ at Aruda Outdoor Adventures for his kayak/snorkel trip to Mike's reef! The water was super clear and the abundance of sea life incredible! Plus RJ the owner/guide is super nice and very knowledgeable about the island and snorkeling in general. He also takes tons of underwater pics for purchase at a very reasonable rate afterwards.
It truly is one happy island, the locals were a

I loved this place, so did the friend I traveled with. For me I like places away from the touristy,high or low rise hotel areas. This place was perfect. It's off the main roads, but still easy to get too. If you know Aruba you know it's small and everything is just a short drive away. The rental is close to my favorite beach, which also made the location great. I over did it in the sun,so skipped the beach a day and just really enjoyed the peace and tranquility this rental offers. There is great walking/hiking right out your door. The cottage itself is quaint, tidy, and clean. Everything you need and more is there in the kitchen. Grocery stores are also very nearby. If you want quiet, peace and calm, like navigating the island on your own, then this is a great place for you. Some very minor things could make it perfect like a privacy window cover in the bathroom and bigger softer blankets on the beds in loft. Like I said minor. We clipped a towel over the window and this worked fine. You could also shut the exterior shutters. I will go back for sure!

The two of us had ZERO interest in the parties, night life, and high prices of the beachfront hotels. We were far more interested in Aruba's natural resources, so this looked very attractive to us. One red flag was that someone had copied and pasted numerous 5-star reviews, as if to boost ratings. But we did more research and took a chance, and it met all expectations.

Although it's somewhat north on the island, remember that Aruba is small. The National Park was within a 30 minute drive and the furthest point south was only 45 minutes away. And the more northerly swimming beaches were just a few minutes' drive.

The cottage is adjacent to the natural desert, and we could walk right out the door to a variety of trails that led to the northeast shore (not for swimming!) Not seen in the picture is another rental property quite close, right at the photographer's back. But it was unoccupied when we were there, so we had no problems with noise. The interior was just as described. Two capable split AC units easily kept the heat and humidity out, the kitchen well supplied with cooking utensils, we had good hot water for showers, and the furniture was comfortable.

The manager Stuart was VERY helpful: When we arrived, we had a problem with the latch on the Jeep and couldn't get our luggage out. I was ready to drive back to the car rental company, but Stuart convinced me to wait until his maintenance guy could take a look at it. And within a few minutes, the guy had arrived and opened the door!

If we make a return trip to Aruba, the availability of this cottage will be a factor.

We loves our time at North Shore Cottage. It’ very cost and in a great location for exploring the north side. The cottage is exposed to a constant sea breeze so some items are weathered as expected. We had a few issues with the air conditioners which have hopefully been resolved by now. A new mattress in the master bedroom would be great. Otherwise we loved the cottage and hope to return soon.

Love the place!

We stayed in the cottage for a week in October and we loved it! Perfect setting in nature, perfect for early morning hikes along the rough coast and very close to the beaches and Oranjestad. The cottage has everything you need and even more than that. Already looking forward to our next stay!

I had a great stay the the North Shore Cotttage. By car it only takes you minutes to get to the great Aruban beaches. Next to the cottage is a shack with a washing machine and a dryer, but also some scuba gear, a body board and beach chairs, extra towels. The internet connection and WIFI was good.
The cottage is located right next to another property and so the view fromn the porch is not what you would expect. To make a long story short. For me the cottage had everything I needed for my stay on Aruba.

We spent a week at North Shore Cottage in April. The property is the last home on Seru Pela at the edge of the desert. The property is clean and well maintained. Our concierge, Freya, was always responsive when called. There is a washer and dryer as well as WiFi.Wold surely stay there again.

The house was really cute and comfortable though a bit far from things like shopping and beaches. We knew this going in and rented a car which was a great decision. Side note not related to house rental: When renting a car be sure to mark damage on all corners as they will try to get $$ from you for every little scratch!

There are no screens on the windows so when the wind is not blowing the windows have to be kept closed at night to keep the bugs out (we wanted to enjoy the quiet without the A/C). The main room A/C was not working until we contacted the rental company to repair it. They came out the same day and we just happened to stop off at the house while they were there. We walked in on two repair guys -- one sleeping in the hammock and one on our bed. They high-tailed it out of there saying they were just making sure the A/c would keep running.

The promised Aruba Aloe products were not in the bathroom and when I inquired I received a couple of packets of cheap soap and shampoo.

A lot of the furniture shown in the photos has changed so be prepared to get not exactly what you see.

I also asked for a corkscrew, missing from the kitchen, which I was promised but never received. Also never saw the discount cards shown on the listing.

Overall this was a great place to stay be be aware that not everything in the ad is as stated. I guess that was my main problem with the property.

This cottage is very quaint and quiet. We were surprised upon arrival to find that the place is not quite as remote as the description and photos lead you to believe. Ten feet off the front porch is a large wooden fence bordering a brightly blue-painted villa that has bright LED security lights blaring all night long. Vehicles of every sort form 4-wheel drive trucks to mountain bikers go up and down the road to the beach all day long and into the night. Apparently down there by the beach somewhere is a "party" area used by locals. One night they were shooting off large flares down there. The cottage itself is fairly nice and well appointed.

We had a wonderful first time stay in Aruba for our honeymoon. If only we could have stayed longer! The North Shore Cottage is just about as perfect as it looks in the pictures. I would definitely recommend this as a rental for couples, maybe with one small child, due to the bathroom situation (you have to go through the main bedroom to get to the bathroom). We didn't use the loft at all but it was an awfully cute area. The washer and dryer worked great for us which was perfect. We also made good use of the cooler for taking our drinks to the beach with us. Make sure to check out the shed, there are lots of things in there that you may be able to make use of. We did not snorkel, surf, or boogieboard, but that stuff was available. DEFINITELY rent a car if you will be staying here. We rented a 4x4 Jeep Wrangler and it was perfect for exploring the dirt trails behind the cottage. There are only a few things to note, nothing major though. The bathroom does not have a curtain for the window, the shower does not have any shelves for soap, shampoo, etc (also, make sure to bring your own soap and shampoo), and the top part of every window is made up of wooden slats with no screen so that bugs easily get into the house. We didn't encounter any large bugs, just small moths and ants (or at least what looked like ants). If you are petrified of tiny lizards, you may not want to stay here. They are always running around outside and are very fun to watch. We even had a couple of them inside the cottage at one point. Don't worry, they are adorable and seem to be pretty scared of humans. Overall this was a great trip for us and we were very very sad to leave. Thank you so much Rentstar Aruba Team!

On a whim we decided to extend our time in Aruba by three days. We found this property on VRBO. The entire rental experience from start to finish was fantastic. The communication received and attention to detail from the property management company was fantastic. We would definitely work with them again in the future.

Our family of 4 spent a week in this cottage and absolutely loved it! The cottage was super cute, clean and well stocked with the essentials. Loved being located right next to the trails as our family is very active in biking and running, but yet just a quick drive to the beautiful beaches and shopping areas. The free beach chairs at Moomba Beach were great-such a fun energy there! Check in/out was seamless and Stuart was super nice and helpful delivering everything as promised! Would love to stay here again :)

North Shore Cottage is the perfect combination of close to everything and far enough away. Within minutes of the beaches and activity and yet quiet at the end of the road. Space for everyone to relax and enjoy with all the amenities of home. Adorable cottage with a homey feel and everything you need to relax or cook great meal. Excellent vacation rental complete with all your beach needed items as well. If going to Aruba, give the cottage a try! you won't regret it.

My family (2 adults 2 kids) stayed at the cottage in December 2016 for six nights. Stuart was very attentive, helpful and nice. The cottage fits four people comfortably and is located in a nice area that is closed to many restaurants, beaches, and supermarkets.

We rented North Shore Cottage for two weeks recently and had a great vacation. Stuart could not have been a better host. We had a few minor concerns and he took care of them immediately. They brought us a GPS at the airport car rental which came in handy to find the cottage. It is in a quiet, secluded area (there are other homes nearby) on the edge of the Nature Preserve. It was a quick trip to the beach, the market, the shops and restaurants but necessary to have a car. The cottage is clean, the beds are comfortable, TV & wife were nice to have. It is exactly as advertised! After 8 years of time share living in Aruba, this was the best thing we ever did! We definitely will return to North Shore Cottage!

Private and scenic location, amazing view into the nature, clean and fully equipped, Ardeline and Stuart are extremely hospitable, we even got a second hammock for the porch and new snorkeling gear, got some valuable recommendations where to go for sightseeing and local food. We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage and left with warm memories. Thank you very much!!!

We loved the cottage from the very second we laid eyes on it. It is exactly as pictured; quaint, adorable, beachy chic decor. It had all the amenities we needed (though lacking some that were said to be included, so I would double check to confirm if something is particularly important to you). The owners, and everyone we came into contact with actually, we're so amazingly helpful and friendly. The location is perfect. It is far enough away from the hotel strips that you don't feel like another cookie cutter vacationer - it is a truly unique experience. It is close enough to the hotel areas to take full advantage of all they had to offer! Only a 5 minute drive yet somehow you're completely in the middle of the dessert. We will definitely be returning to Aruba, and we can't imagine staying anywhere else!

Manager's Response

Hi Marley, thanks for staying! Sorry about the snorkeling equipment not being complete. We bought new sets so next time you come we'll have everything for you :) Warm regards, Stuart

Near everything, yet an isolated dessert feel. We stayed 4 nights, but will enjoy at least a week next time. The rental company thought of EVERYTHING, including a vehicle navigation system waiting for us at the airport, charcoal for the bbq and a comprehensive manual for all things fun about the cottage and Aruba. The rental company couldn't have been more thoughtful and accommodating. This beats a highrise any day. Rent a jeep (which you can do through the cottage rental co) and see Aruba at its best. We can't stop talking about it and will definitely be back!!!

We had a beautiful stay in the North Shore Cottage which is located in a very quite area.
The cottage is very close to the eastcoast and at the border of a small neighbourhood.
It may accomodate 4 people, but I recommend it for 2 adults and 2 kids.
One downside is the bathroom, which you can enter through the master bedroom. So if anyone needs to visit the bathroom at night, he may disturb those sleeping in the master bedroom.

Hi Angelo, thanks for leaving us a review. Glad you enjoyed your time in Aruba and were able to do your special project. Hope to see you back soon. Kind regards, Julia

The cottage was perfect for a relaxed, active peaceful vacation. Magnificent isolated surroundings yet 5 minutes from the ocean in 3 directions!
Whether biking the north shore, walking the Non-tourist beaches, enjoying both the restaurants and the beautiful foods at the superstore-this place is perfect for anyone who loves to be at one with nature but have the comforts of home.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the North Shore Cottage Aruba. The place was clean and well maintained. The location was nearly perfect. The picture makes it look like it is completely alone and private, but there is another house very close to it on the other side of a fence. It cause no problems however. We enjoyed our honeymoon there very much. Thank you

The North Shore Cottage provided a wonderful first time experience in Aruba. It was nice to be away from the hustle of the high rise hotel area, yet still close enough to all of the attractions to get the full experience. Very cute and quaint house with all of the necessary amenities.

The peace and quiet this lovely little cottage offered is morning would start with a cup of coffee on the porch, listening to wind whistle and the faint sounds of waves crashing, Our two adventurous boys would take a hike to the shore every morning to collect drift wood and coral. My wife would always spend some time in the hammock. This how all of our mornings started. The rest of the days where just a wonderful. Arashi beach was a quick 2-3 minutes drive. This was one of best family vacations we ever had and it much of it had to do with our home away from home.

We had a great vacation at this cottage. We felt like it was our home away from home for the duration of our stay. It is very well appointed, clean, practical, quiet but close to our favorite beaches. The directory that is provided is better than the guide we had, Stuart and Ardeline were very helpful and friendly, responsive when we had questions ( even weird ones!). They have a lot of great suggestions and made our stay even better. The kids had a blast at the playground behind the house, using the small electric jeep, and playing with the toys that were available for them. There is everything you need to cook, if you want to stay in. We highly recommend the north shore cottage and will stay there again if we go back to Aruba!

The entire experience was pleasant - from booking through check out. The communication with the rental agent was very smooth and every detail was thought off.
The cottage has all amenities, great wifi, very comfortable and not far from the beach.
The combination of excellent service and a comfortable rental is a winner.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful the North Shore Cottage was for our stay in Aruba. The location is quiet and serene. It's backyard is the desert with mountain biking, running and hiking trails to the ocean. The owners were so helpful and even have a book they have put together all about what to do in Aruba. The house is adorable and the perfect size for a family of four. I loved my morning runs on the trails along the coast. The cottage is close to everything, yet far enough away that at night you hear nothing and can see every constellation without the city lights! We hope to get back!

The cottage was perfect for our honeymoon. It's secluded, nestled near a gorgeously desolate park, but it's also a 5 minute drive from the resorts and casinos. The hosts are incredible. They are courteous and helpful and they provide everything one could ask for a vacation.

Our stay at the North Shore Cottage was enjoyable. The bedding was comfortable, cooking supplies were well stocked, the cottage was well maintained and - most importantly - we were centrally located (within 10 minutes) to attractions, restaurants and a large supermarket on the Northern tip of the island. Nothing beat waking (and sleeping) to the trade winds, except maybe the quick walk to the crashing waves. Thanks to a little forethought from the owners, we were equipped with a rental jeep, Garmin and mobile phone and were never lost as we explored the island - and there were views to delight the soul at every corner. Indeed, we found a little slice of heaven at the North Shore.
