Do you stay there or is it strictly a place you rent to others? Answer: Casa Koyari is our second home and we stay there every chance we get. Our family and friends also stay there. It will eventually be our primary home.
Answer: There is no need to buy bottled water in Aruba, unless you prefer to. Aruba's tap water is pure and refreshing, distilled in the world's second largest saltwater desalination plant.
Answer: Pharmacies are called "botanica" in Aruba. Santa Ana Botanica is less than a 2 minute car ride away. Typically, you can't buy over the counter medications such as Tylenol or Advil in Aruba. We urge you to bring any medication you might need while on vacation with you.
What are your favorite restaurants nearby?
Answer: No trip to Aruba is complete without a visit to Madame Janette's, the grand dame of Aruba dining.
We also enjoy Gasparito's which is less than a minute away, for traditional Aruban cuisine. Ask for the local's menu. It's a price-fixed 3 course meal for 45 Florins or about $25 US.
Linda's Pancake's is very close and a can't miss for traditional Dutch crepes.
You're also a 2 minute drive to the high-rise area where many fine restaurants can be enjoyed.
A little-known secret is that Matthew's at Casa Del Mar, offers a "romantic" dinner on the beach for $75 per person. It is a 4 course meal including soup, salad, surf and turf (usually lobster or shrimp and filet mignon) and a sampling of all of their desserts. It also includes a bottle of champagne. In our opnion, it is the best value on the island and the food is great. The best part is they place a table and large wing chairs on the sand directly in front of the ocean and surround your table with lanterns and tiki torches. You have your personal waitstaff as well. It is magical and your very own private stretch of beach in paradise.
Reservations are a must as they only do one table per night. They don't advertise the Romantic Dinner, you have to ask for it. Ask for Ricardo, Matthew's Manager. He usually gets in around 3pm.
