Today Realty Aruba is offering a true jewel of a property in Aruba. This is not hyperbole, this is a rare beach-front property exclusive, which is truly unique in the context of its location and availability.
Aruba is services oriented island with almost 80% of its economy revolves around tourism related activities. This entails that accommodation providers ideally wants to be at the beach or at least a walking distance away.
Take into consideration that Aruba is nearly 19.6 miles long (31,5 kilometers) and 6 miles wide (9,7 kilometers), with 50% of the island unusable for hotel accommodation or housing development due to its rugged coastline on the northeastern side of the island. Additionally, the linear availability of proper beach area for accommodation development is all but non-existent.
This house, we dubbed, Savaneta Capital House (SCH) is located in the south central district of Savaneta. This urbanization is the original capital of Aruba, hence the word “capital” and coincidentally my hometown.
Only a couple minute drive from the airport lies Savaneta. This quaint neighborhood is characterized by its bygone fisher town-era activities.
In the present, this urbanization a quiet village, mostly used as a “suburb” for Oranjestad or San Nicolas. There are some sporadic hostels, small boutique hotels and apartments for tourists seeking the “true” island experience. The tranquil waters and coral reefs in Savaneta make kayaking, paddleboarding, and snorkeling especially popular.
Gastronomically you will be pleasantly surprised as there are some old school fish restaurants, fancy restaurants, take-out joints and a newly opened hipster coffee and breakfast shop. Furthermore, there are supermarkets, pharmacy, hardware store, church and a gasoline station.
