Where Are The Best Locations In Aruba To Buy?
Most people who visit Aruba love the ocean so most of our clients are keen to buy a property that is close to a beach. The most sought-after properties are located in places such as Palm Beach & Eagle beach which are renowned for their beauty. If you are buying as an investment then beachside properties are prime time real estate as they are very easy to rent out and are rarely empty.
Homes in these areas tend to be more expensive due to the higher demand but there are plenty of other beach-side properties located in areas that are often just as beautiful but more budget-friendly such as Malmok, Noord and more.
If you’re looking for somewhere quieter to retire too then choosing a home slightly further inland will be more peaceful as it is sufficiently far away from the tourist hot spots.
If you enjoy walking we recommend you look for a property around Santa Cruz close to our beautiful national park, or if golf is more your thing then Modanasa or somewhere near the Tierra del sol golf course would be a good location.
If you are looking for more of a city break or just love the busyness of city life then there are plenty of homes available in the capital Oranjestad.

Types Of Properties Available To Buy
Whatever property type you are looking for we are confident you will be able to find something suitable in our real estate listings, below are overviews of 3 different property types that we frequently sell:
Villas For Sale
Aruba has countless exclusive private villas dotted across the island.
If you’re looking for the perfect place to buy as an investment or as a second home for your family then a villa offers the privacy, space and luxury that will make your stay truly memorable. Villas are a great investment too as there is always a high demand for short term villa vacation rentals
Villas obviously are very unique with each one having its individual quirks however generally you will find that most Aruba villas have large open-plan communal areas such as the lounge and kitchen, and then private ensuite bathrooms and balconies with each bedroom.
Many of our villas also have swimming pools and jacuzzis in the garden.
Condos For Sale
There are hundreds of condominiums across Aruba, these are effectively apartments where you share ownership of communal areas with the other apartment owners.
If you’re looking to buy a retirement home or second home in Aruba then a condominium is a great choice and is the most popular property type on the island.
A condo can include shared access to facilities such as pools, gyms, tennis courts, garages, lifts & elevators, hallways, laundry rooms, communal spaces and gardens.
The costs for maintaining and running all of these facilities are shared between the residents meaning you can enjoy a pool without the expense of heating it and maintaining it being entirely on you and you also get the benefit of moving into a friendly community.
A condo makes it more affordable and easier to maintain and use otherwise expensive services and facilities such as a pool, gym or tennis court. Condominiums are a great choice for anyone looking to buy a second home, retirement, or investment property in Aruba. They can generate very good returns as vacation rentals. Condos come in all shapes and sizes from a 1-bedroom condo up to 4 or 5 bedrooms.
Homes For Sale
Aruba of course has plenty of houses for sale.
Houses offer more privacy than a condo with no shared communal areas.
Houses are great investment opportunities as they are easy to rent out as vacation rentals or longer-term rentals so if you’re looking to buy a house in Aruba then get in touch with us today.
Why Buy In Aruba?
Aruba has the third-lowest price per square foot in the Caribbean. This makes it an affordable place to buy a second home or investment property.
With miles of beautiful white beaches such as Malmok beach, Eagle Beach, Palm beach (one of the best beaches in the world!) and the beautiful beaches of Noord Aruba, there is no shortage of places to visit.
If you fancy a more adventurous retirement then there are a wide range of water sports activities, such as surfing, water skiing, snorkeling, kite surfing and more, available at most beaches.
..or if you’d prefer you can enjoy the two golf courses that Aruba offers, enjoy fine dining in Oranjestad Aruba and enjoy exploring Arikok national park.
Another reason why Aruba is a great place to buy a property is that it is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. It has very low levels of crime thanks to its strong warm communities, and as it is situated south of the hurricane belt it is kept well sheltered from weather extremes.
All of these factors combined mean that you can be confident you will be able to secure a good return on a property investment in Aruba.
