Rentals & Reminders

 

I should finally be caught up on rentals.  Please check the list and make sure I have yours posted and the info is correct.  If you have rented your unit and it is still on the  list, please let me know.

A few Reminders:

Please notify Karina by email two weeks prior to your check in date to let her know if you will be checking in.  This is a requirement from now on-we have to notify her 2 weeks before our check in date.  She also needs a Member Guest Form if you will not be checking in and have a Guest staying in your unit.

Her email is ts.aru@riu.com

There are no more last minute Trades or Accelerations at the Riu.  Karina needs the paperwork 60 days prior to a Trade or Acceleration.

Once a Trade is made, it cannot be Traded again.

Timeshare may not be Deposited unless you belong to Interval.

Timeshare may not be moved to another year.

Hope everyone is healthy and vaccinated!

Aruba Breeze Condo at Eagle Beach

One of our Members owns a lovely condo at Aruba Breeze at Eagle Beach.  His unit is often available for rent.  Below is the info:

Outstanding Condo, perfect location

This condo is exactly what you see in the online pictures. Very modern unit, large for 2 couples. and everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The french doors open to a waterfall pool on the left and also one that is situated steps away from the unit. This was a nice seating area in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee. As well, their is a covered bbq area with an outdoor dining table. The water is drinkable out of the tap and the unit also supplied ice so that we were able to cool our beer on our trips to the beach. With that the condo also supplied a nice sized beverage cooler and lawn chairs so that we were able to take to the beach. The beach is one of the nicest beaches i have seen in the caribbean. Eagle beach is a 10 minute walk from the condo. The beach is a long span of white fine sand with turquoise warm waters. I can say the only downfall of Eagle beach is the wind but without the wind you would most likely cook to death so settle for the wind! The condo is situated in a very secure area however Aruba itself is very safe. We took many walks at night and did not feel a bit unsafe. The area is full of shopping and restaurants. The choices are endless:) If your up to arubian food, try the heshi yeni and the awesome johnney cakes and of course the island breads. We rented a car so were able to scoot around the island to enjoy the capitol of Oranjested, Arushi beach, Baby beach, Mengel Halto beach. and Palm beach area. A half a block from the condo is a greek/Italian restaurant , Zuzuroh. A must to go and try this restaurant. Westdeck is also a must to dine, tons of live entertainment here and also around the area to enjoy. Nice grocery store to stock up for your vacation, a one stop shop to get all you need, good selection of wine, beer and liquor. Did some snorkelling at baby beach and Mengal Halto, some fish, its ok but not great but still fun to be in the water. All in all, we will be back, great island, nice friendly people and the most stunning beaches all at your finger tips as the island is so small ….all I can say is one happy island! Thanks for the wonderful stay, it was enjoyed by all!

Riu Palace Aruba Timeshare Facebook Group Page

I created a Facebook Group Page for us. If you use Facebook and would like to join here is the link:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/202305166815917/

I post Riu stuff on my personal page all the time and yesterday my kids convinced me to create a Group Page. Thanks to everyone who has posted so quickly. This page will allow you to post rentals/sales in another location, post pictures or just communicate with other members. There are several Aruba FB pages and it should be nice to have our own.

The website will not change. This is just an addition for all of us.

Exotic Seaside Retreat Homearama 2012 Norfolk VA

0

Thanks to everyone who asked me to share pictures of the Seaside Homes Exotic Seaside Retreat in Norfolk VA.  Our local Builders Association sponsors a home show every fall which showcases homes in one neighborhood and is open to the public for 16 days.  This year it returned to the neighborhood we build in for the 3rd time so as the grand finale to our show home days, we took on building a Bayfront Home. In the 30 year history of Homearama there has never been a Bayfront Home in Homearama. Our home sits on 120′ of bayfront right on the Chesapeake Bay.  We won 16 of the 18 awards with 13 being Gold.

For those of you who want to see pictures and the video, I am attaching the link to our website, articles and pictures.  The video is on the awards page.  Thanks to all who have asked to see the house.

House 10, the $1.695 million Exotic Seaside Retreat built by Seaside Homes, has many breathtaking features, but its crafty outdoor room created by landscape architect Jane Cantin really caught my imagination. The hard-scaped space, which borders an East Beach common area, offers an intriguing combination of privacy and breath-taking views. Furnished as a dining area for Homearama, it’s like a secret garden bordered with high evergreen hedges where you can retreat for privacy, but you can paradoxically see everything that’s going on around you. – Lia Russell, correspondent
