We feel incredibly blessed to have stayed in this little piece of paradise you have shared with us.
After taking the local bus up to Arashi Beach and walking the entire stretch down to the central bus station in Oranjestaad (we even fit in a snorkel session off Palm Beach that day -we were tired that night!), we definitely agree that Windsong was the best choice in places to stay. We snorkeled every day at Mangel Halto and enjoyed laying out at your pool each afternoon. Thank you!

From the moment, we met Juan and he showed us around the cottage and neighbourhood we were totally thrilled. I love cooking and had all I needed to do so. The towels and chairs for the beach, the wonderful pool after a salty day snorkeling were much appreciated. We snorkeled at Arashi beach, Malmok beach, and Baby beach but Mangel Halto is by far the best though each had its own charm. We found out when we did a reef snorkel with “Mermaid” and found the best is just outside the “shack” on the north side of Mangel Halto. Sunsets with a glass of wine at the edge of the shore were the BEST!!

Thank you for the use of your delightful cottage. We snorkeled at Baby beach, Boca Catalina and of course here at Mangel Halto. Each brought a new appreciation of God’s great creativity and His kindness in providing us such beauty … here at Windsong was actually the best… We also did a day of scuba diving with JADS. We explored Arikok Park, the vegetation was so unique and striking, the Fontein and Quadirikiri Carves were very interesting. We enjoyed the dining experience on the dock at Marina Pirata. We avoided the tourist zone and appreciated being away from all that hubbub.

When we left Montreal, there was snow…so this was paradise. Here are our high points: Windsurfing next to the Ritz, Praising the Creator for the beauty of pelicans in flight and diving for food, Snorkelling at Spaanslagoen right here at Windsong! Hiking to the natural pools at Conchi, and our absolute favorite: relaxing with our lunch on Windsong’s nifty beach chairs at the breathtaking Boca Prins cove, Arikok park.

Your island is amazing! Your cottage was just fine for us and the courtyard and pool so relaxing. The swimming and snorkeling was wonderful and the sea water was a bonus in healing some skin troubles. Thank you for your hospitality and nights of game-playing. Not bad weather either! We both feel as if much stress has been relieved and this was a superb vacation.

Thank you Mike and Lois for sharing your beautiful place with us. The guest cottage was perfect for the both of us and we thoroughly enjoyed cooking our evening meals by the BBQ area -so relaxing! The pool was fabulous too. Thank you Mike for teaching H to dive and for taking us out across the street to see the ship wreck.

I have had the privilege to stay at this property several times and am always overwhelmed at its beauty. The villa is so comfortable and accessible to the sea just outside the front door. I have enjoyed snorkeling in front of the villa and have seen many beautiful fish and coral there. Some days I chose to just swim in the ocean, walking on the clear sandy bottom. Eating out on Aruba was very enjoyable, especially dining at some restaurants on the sandy beaches in the evening, watching the large sun sink into the ocean. I will return.

Third year in a row! Another 12 days in “Aruba Paradise”! New things this year included eating at Matthews and the Flying Fishbone. Both good places. A highlight was renting an ATV Side by Side and exploring the coast for 8 hours rental from Roadrunner ATV. Snorkelling across the road was the best as usual. Saw an eel and lots of Parrot fish. Also, snorkelled at Arashi Beach and saw squid. Truly an amazing holiday!

First time in beautiful Aruba. From the moment we stepped off the plane and Juan “in a million -the Aruban Ambassador” greeted us with hugs and laughter, we knew we were in a good place. Mike and Lois instantly made us feel comfortable and welcome and their lovely Windsong Cottage was perfect! Pool a delight. Loved sitting under the mango tree seeing lizards and iguanas and hummingbirds! We came to snorkel and it was the best I’ve done to date! The coral, the fish, eels, squids, octopus, bristle-worm and on and on. The colors when sitting along the water in the mornings and then again for sunsets… indescribable! The tap water is excellent. We had a great time exploring the neighborhood on foot. Zeerovers – best seafood ever! Can’t wait to return to Windsong the most perfect place in Aruba!

It was a trip of a lifetime for our family of five (kids aged 10-16). We enjoyed being away from the resort area and with-in a short drive to such beautiful beaches. The Villa accommodations were great. We found it to be very spacious, clean and comfortable; and the pool area was a big hit with the kids. We especially enjoyed barbequing and eating in the outdoor dining area. The owners were warm and welcoming, and gave us all the information we needed to make the most out of our stay. We hadn’t expected the snorkeling and scuba diving, directly in front of the villa, to be so excellent. We also took advantage of their in-house PADI scuba diving instruction; first-rate! We wholeheartedly recommend you choose this oceanfront villa as your home base when travelling to Aruba.
