We traveled with a large group of 10. Our stay was beyond expectations! Each room had its own bathroom, which was very pleasant. Very luxurious utilized kitchen and a own swimming pool completed the stay for the kids. Unfortunately we only stayed for 2 nights, too short to enjoy the outdoor bar & barbecue. We will definitely stay here for the next time.
At last, but not least a very kind owner who tried his very best to make it as convenient as possible!

Heel nette huis met alle gemakken voorzien. We waren met een groep van tien personen. Lekker geslapen op de heel comfortabele bedden. Pool is ook geweldig. Volgend jaar zullen we zeker hier weer verblijven. Bedankt meneer Stan voor uw gastvrijheid.

This was my first trip to Aruba and I can honestly say I looked at over 50 rental properties online before choosing Zentasy. I chose it because of the description as well as the photos showing a very clean, modern home. Like most I was a tad anxious to see if the real thing was as good as stated online. I can say it was even better!
Upon arriving on the island contacted owner of our arrival and he met us at the home to greet us to the island and show us how to utilize features of the house as well as a fresh drink to start off the trip. The house was emaculately clean (which I LOVE). It had every modern convenience you could need from AC/dishwasher, washer/dryer, TV's in each room with Netflix and music channels (not that you will watch much TV while here), WiFi, extra freezer and ice maker to hairdryers in each of the rooms along with plenty of bath and beach towels. He even has outdoor speakers to connect your phone so can enjoy music while relaxing poolside. The layout is fantastic for privacy while also great for gathering large groups. The outside area was a delight! The pool was sparkling clean and refreshing! The outside tiki bar/grill area was absolutely perfect and enough outdoor seating to accommodate ourselves as well as visiting guests.
And let's not forget the rooftop terrace with 360 views of the area which is amazing for catching the sunset! And the house is only a short walk to the beach and a quick drive to a local market to get anything you need for your stay.
Overall, this property and management (Stan) beyond exceeded my expectations! It was a true delight and pleasure and I can only say that I hope it's not long before I am able to return!
Definitely 5 stars all around!!!

This was our first time to the Carribean as a family. A direct Southwest Airlines flight from Baltimore is ultimately what steered us here. We used Airbnb.com to find this fabulous villa. The pictures showed a modern villa with a pool that could accomodate a minimum of 6 guests. Everything looked good, so we booked it. There's always a bit of anxiety when booking a place based soley on pictures. The second we pulled into the villa, I knew we hit a home run. We were a bit early, yet were greated by the owner who was there with the cleaners to ensure we'd be welcomed with a clean property. While the cleaners finished their work, the owner took the opportunity to make us a drink and we made a plan to meet again when the cleaners had finished, which gave us some time to drive around and get our bearings.
The owner gave us a tour and showed us every detail of the property. Our goal of this trip was to snorkel, experience some beaches and relax. We were perfectly content to do a few snorkeling excursions, sample a few local beaches and wrap up the day just relaxing at the villa. The modern decor was very cool and the owner had clearly made an effort to ensure all of the bases were covered in terms of your needs. TV, internet, etc were all high quality. Aruba is one of two islands who de-saliinate sea water which translates into tap water that is better than bottled water.
There was a slight issue with the freezer. I point this out because these things happen yet the owner was immediately responsive. This was not a big deal to us but I thought it was important to note how attentive the owner was to his guests.
As a family, we discussed that we would definitely stay here or any other property the owner may have should we opt again for a villa. We originally thought about the all-inclusive scenario at the Marriott for example but after this experience, I can't see us staying anywhere but here.

This was our first trip to Aruba and it was a GREAT trip. We were lost driving to the villa, but the owner came to meet us. [Aruba doesn't have street names. Directions are based on landmarks (ie: turn right at McDonalds)].
We were given a cold beverage when we arrived. The bed linen, towels, and beach towels are provided (no wash cloths).
The house was EXACTLY as pictured. Very clean and modern. There were four of us, so we each had our own room & bathroom. Plenty of space. It was good having washer/dryer for the beach towels. We didn't utilize the pool much. The beach is less than 5 min drive.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone. When we were checking out the owner asked if there was anything we didn't like about the house and I honestly couldn't think of a single complaint.

This was the first time to Aruba and is was a great experience. Upon arrival, we called the owner who then met us at the house. We were welcomed with a cold tropical drink and shown around the home, which was very beautiful. There were five of us and the home offered plenty of space for all of us.
The house was exceptional and looked just like the pictures. We started each morning in the pool and worked our way to a local beach. During our stay we BBQ twice and loved the BBQ grill and bar area.
We had one problem with the internet and the owner came over within 15 minutes and took care of the problem. It was exceptional!!!!!!!!!!
We loved every moment of our trip and would highly recommend his house to anyone who has a trip planned to Aruba.
ALSO....everyone needs to kiss Federico the Frog and post a picture. My picture will be coming soon.

This was the first trip to Aruba and it exceeded all expectations. We arrived earlier then the check in time and Stan made the accommodations for us-which after a long flight was much, much much appreciated. We were given the grand tour of the beautiful grounds and a full run through of everything.
The house was fully equipped with everything you can think of: wifi, satellite tv, Netflix, YouTube- all connected to the tv, outside speakers for your iPod and much more. The grounds were immaculate and well kept. Stan was quick to respond if we had any issues. There is not one negative comment I could think of. Honestly the best part of the house was the neighbors 2 dogs. They came over and visited us everyday. Sweetest little girls you can imagine - we enjoyed their company.
You won't regret renting this house.

Look no further if you want to find the perfect place in Aruba. The house was everything it said it was and more. We were a group of 3 couples and the way the house is laid out is perfect for multiple couples. Stan was there to greet us and see us on our way when our trip ended. He could not have been more gracious and welcoming. The pool area will lure you in and try to keep you captive but you will need to drag yourself away to explore all Aruba has to offer. This will definitely be our go to place when visiting Aruba.

We loved being at this beautiful home for our first visit to Aruba. Everything was exactly as pictured. Our host was gracious and welcoming. He was easily available for any question we had. It was very convenient having a restroom in each bedroom. We were three couples traveling and that privacy was key for us.
We loved the private pool, the outdoor grill area and the open feeling throughout the house. If we traveled to Aruba I would definitely book this property again!!

The five of us had been to Aruba before a few times, staying both at hotels and rentals, and we all agree this is an amazing property in a great part of the island.
The house is new, super clean, spacious, comfortable, laid back with really nice island landscaping. The pool area is super nice. A/C only in the bedrooms, but they work perfectly. The rest of the house is well ventilated and has ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully equipped with every gadget possible including extra freezer and brand new equipment. Bathrooms, one per room (YUM!) are gorgeous. Beds are super comfortable.
Stan, the owner, is a great guy. He makes you feel as if you're the best news ever. He is always available and responds within 5 minutes even on Sundays. He was there to greet us and to say good bye, so proud of his home! It was a pleasure to do business with him.
A few comments: You'll need to rent a car or at least bikes. Public transportation in the area is non-existent. Also, even if it is published as with an "ocean view", the house is not located on the beachfront. It is a healthy walk away or a super short drive from it. There is a really cool roof terrace from which you can enjoy the sunset on the ocean (See photo).
Oh! And the two next door dogs, Brandy and Duchess, are the sweetest, best addition EVER to your vacation. You'll see!!
We had the time of our lives and most definitely would repeat.

Our first visit to Aruba and what an amazing place. The villa is stunning, exactly as it appears in the photos. Four big en suite bedrooms with TV and high spec shower rooms. A huge comfortable living space and proper kitchen making it very easy to self cater. Stan was a charming and helpful and showed us round when we arrived and then kept an unintrusive eye on the villa, ensuring the pool was topped up and we were OK. Teenagers loved the internet TV with Netflicks. The pool and outside space are amazing. A perfect base for chilling, exploring the island and making the most of the beautiful weather and beaches.Highly recommended.

The layout of the house was perfect especially for (3) couples! The pictures do not do it justice and even the pictures shown are beautiful. I could have laid out by the pool every day, but we couldn't come to Aruba and NOT visit the beaches! Stan the property manager was AWESOME!!!! He was very helpful and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this property!

My wife and I have been to Aruba a number of times, having stayed at hotels or condo's, and this was by far the best location we have experienced. Everything advertised far exceeded our expectations, from the private pool, large living space and location to the beach. Whether you are a couple or a larger group, this house has it all.
Stan met us upon arrival with a drink, showed us the layout of the property and explained how everything works. This is a clean, modern house that has every amenity needed for a comfortable stay while on the island. The location is extremely close to the high rise hotels, but not far from everything else.
If you are considering a stay in either the low or high rise hotels, consider Zentasea. You will get more comfort, privacy and space at this amazing property. Stan and Frank will make sure you are taken care of.

My wife, son, and I traveled with another family to Aruba a few weeks ago (arriving the day before the Superbowl). Our friends found Zentasea online and I was originally skeptical of all the gushing reviews. Also, the modern style wasn't necessarily our taste, but we were renting the place, not buying it! That said, the entire experience exceeded our expectations.
First, Stan is a 'rock-star' amongst rental property owners. He went above-and-beyond to provision the place upon our arrival, and also had a bottle of wine for us as a welcome gift. After the initial tour, he gave us a few different ways to contact him; day or night, with any questions. We only contacted him once when part of our party returned back early and didn't know the alarm code, but he was extremely responsive, as committed. He also checked in a few times via email to see if we needed anything.
The property itself is well laid-out for renting/entertaining; bedrooms (and bathroom) in each of four corners surround the open living/dining/cooking area, which opens onto the pool deck. With strategic windows open, the entire place immediately becomes enveloped in cool Aruban breeze. When we weren't at the beach, we were in the back, and made good use of the multiple lounge areas with/without sun, the bar, and of course, the great saltwater pool. While the property is in a neighborhood, the walls around the back area made us feel secluded (in a good way).
We were able to get to the area beaches and high-rise district restaurants in less than a 10-minute drive and there's a decent market nearby.
I guess I can sum up our experience by describing our Superbowl Sunday. After returning from the beach, we got the blender going at the outdoor bar, threw some burgers on the grill, had the game on the big-screen, and took a dip in the pool at halftime. Best Superbowl Ever!

We stayed for a week in Jan. The villa, pool, and amenities was great! It was our first time in Aruba so having Stan meet us there and give us tips was a bonus. We used 3 of the 4 bedrooms and the lay out was perfect. You'll need a car, which Stan arraigned for us but you can get to anyplace you want to go quickly. You can see the ocean and the hotels from the rooftop deck but you're in a quiet residential area not far from the action. We went with friends and loved hanging out together by the pool in the evenings. Stan checked on us by text and took care of everything we needed.

Stan was incredibly welcoming and explained everything we needed to know about his beautiful home. He went out of his way to make sure that we had everything we needed and that we could contact him anytime during our trip. He was exceptionally accommodating to our needs and our schedule.
Zentasy is even more gorgeous in person. When you are there you feel as if you are living in a celebrity's home. The house and grounds were laid out with precise detail and you can tell a lot of attention was put into the construction and decor.
The pool and garden area were amazing. We’d never had our own private pool before so it was true luxury. It was especially beautiful at night when the lights came on.
The neighborhood felt safe and we even met a neighbor when we couldn’t get our local cell phone to work. She was very nice and spoke highly of Stan as well. It truly felt like a community.
We used Zentasy’s Wifi every single day and it was fast. The smart TV in the living room was also nice because Netflix, YouTube, and all of our other favorites were right there as well. We also cooked everyday and the kitchen was better stocked than our own. Small details were not overlooked and we wanted for nothing.
Both my husband and I are ready to stay at Zentasy again next year so I think that really says all you need to know. It was an absolute perfect oasis. Thank you so much for sharing it with us Stan!!

Zentasy have the best sunset view I've ever seen if you are on the rooftop terrance. The villa is also in a great location, everything was easy to get to. I very highly recommend you stay here "Mr Stan Zentasy Paradise Villa" that's what I call it. Because it is Paradise!!!!!!!!

This was the first time we have rented a home instead of staying at a hotel and we just did not know what to expect. This place was amazing. From the minute we booked this house they were so extremely helpful in every aspect of the planning. Stan was at the house to greet us when we arrived and walked us through every thing we needed to know about the place. He kept in touch with us the two weeks we were there always checking to see if we needed anything and answering any questions we had about things to see and do.
As for the house, the pool was beautiful and it was so nice to wake up every morning and walk out the door to the pool. The inside was great with all of us having our own bathrooms to get ready. We were just around the corner from the grocery store and very close to shopping and beaches. Large table in dining for big groups, BBQ Grill out by the pool. Everything you need and much more convenient then a hotel.
This house was no doubt the best decision we could have made. I next time we go somewhere on vacation, that house and owner will have a lot to live up to. Thank you Stan for making our stay so wonderful.

We had a fabulous stay at Zentasea Villa! There were 6 of us staying for 6 nights and the house worked out perfect. The bedrooms and baths were spacious and had great closet space. The shower had hot water, not standard in Aruba and everything was modern and clean.
The kitchen was very well equipped and the living area was open concept with plenty of space!
The pool area was very nice, lots of chairs to lounge in and there was a covered BBQ area and outdoor shower as well!
Location was good, close to some local grocery stores and easy to get to the beach and restaurants. You definitely need to rent a car to get around and the rental places are all there right at the airport. We used Budget.
Checking in was seamless- the owner Stan was waiting for us when we arrived with cold drinks and then showed us around and explained how things worked. He was charming and told us to call him at anytime if we needed anything.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this Villa to any families looking for a great place to stay while in gorgeous Aruba!!

Stan and Frank were the best. Walked into a very clean home and were greeted with a bottle of wine. The interior was stylish, updated (minimalistic) but the back yard was the best part. We spent most of our time outside in the pool or on the patio to escape the sun. Sunset drinks or the roof a picturesque as well. The house is a short ride to everything you can walk to a few place but honestly it's too hot. You can rent a car from them. Would rent again.

The villa looks exactly as it does in the pictures and the owners Stan and Frank were awesome. Stan checked in on us regularly and made sure we had everything we needed, so helpful! The backyard is a true private oasis and the rooftop terrace has the BEST sunset views. The outdoor BBQ area was perfect, we were there for 2 weeks and grilled home every other day as the backyard was so pleasant and private. I would recommend a car as you need it for the larger store (Superfoods), and all the restaurants (5 mins away by car from villa) and you can explore all the gorgeous beaches. If we return to Aruba this will definitely be our villa of choice, great trip!!

Great time. Aruba is awesome. Although the house is close to the beach, you can't effectively/easily walk to it, so I would just say it's not walking distance (ie if u were carrying stuff).
House had great set up for family or multiple couples.

Renting a car made seeing and enjoying the entire island possible and it's a must
Great house, AC, wifi, etc.

Zentasy is a very relaxing home away from home. The four bedrooms and baths make it large enough for family or group of friends. Home is well maintained and stocked with towels, spices, dishware and pots/pans. Each room has own tv. There is a large common room and dining area. Major attraction is the patio and swimming pool. The pictures are inviting, but the actual pool is even more inviting. You could stay here and never miss the nearby beaches. Pool and patio also offer privacy.
While beach is within walking distance (about 350 yards), a heavy rain could create a small lake between the house and beach. It is easier to drive, which also opens up more beach locations, e.g. Baby Beach on the south end of the island, or Arashi Beach by the Lighthouse on the north tip of the island. You can see the High-Rise hotels from the patio, less than 1/2 mile as crow flies, but about a mile as the road goes.
There is a small Chinese grocery within a 1/3 mile, where most staples can be purchased. Another 200 yards is a larger Noord Supermarket, with a little larger selection of produce and meats.
The kitchen has nice stove top, microwave and oven. There is a great grill out by the pool. We grilled one night and had snacks available throughout our stay. We also took advantage of the many restaurants over by the hotels...
Stan met us at the house, greeted us with a glass of lemonade and explained all of the amenities. He checked to see that everything was working out and made himself available if we had any issues. Very good attention and service. Great vacation stay.

Villa moderne et récente, située dans la partie nord de l'île, très proche de belles plages, notamment celles de boca catalina et arashi.
Frank le propriétaire est très sympathique, accessible et réactif.
La maison est située dans un quartier résidentiel très calme et sûr. Elle est parfaitement entretenue et très bien équipée.
Nous n'étions que 2, mais la villa convient très bien pour 8 personnes. Elle est suffisamment grande et bien agencée pour que 8 adultes y soient en même temps sans être les uns sur les autres, et en respectant leur intimité.
La piscine n'est pas très grande, car une partie est surélevée pour recevoir des transats. Très agréable. Le patio intérieur est clos de mur, ce qui garantit l'intimité, sans empêcher le vent très présent à Aruba de rafraîchir l'air.
Nous recommandons sans hésiter cette très belle villa et y retournerons si nous devons revenir à Aruba.

We went to Aruba in the last week of May for a family vacation; 7 ppl including two preschoolers. Originally, we were going to book room in the high-rise section of the island but luckily my brother convinced us & he booked at Zantasy. I can’t say enough about this property!
Layout: The house is roomy, comfortable, clean & modern. Each one of the four rooms has its own bathroom & king size beds. One room has twin beds but the host was able to accommodate us & converted it to a king bed. The house has a large open space concept (kitchen, dining room & living area). The back of the house has floor to ceiling glass sliding doors; two of the bedrooms walk out into an outdoor seating area. The main living space walk out to larger outdoor area with a couch & two chairs. There are also two additional outdoor areas with lounge chairs (one has a pergola) plus an additional outdoor bar & BBQ area (you’ll find pool toys there).
The bathrooms are modern, clean and have an amazing shower & double sinks. The pool is fantastic! The shallow end is only about a foot deep (great for lounge chairs) then steps down to the deeper end. My kids loved swimming there.
Amenities: The house has EVERYTHING you would have home: full size appliances, all cooking utensils, pots, pans,, Tupperware, cutlery, spices, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, oven, blow dryers, bath towels, beach towels, stackable washer/dryer, iron, ironing board, alarm system, cleaning supplies, TVs in each room & family room, Netflix, cable, WiFi, off street parking, etc.
The closets are huge & comfortable; they have hampers & plenty of hangers.
Honestly, everything in the house is so well thought out that the only thing you need to bring is your personal preferred toiletries & beauty products.
Location: Everything in the island is so close & easily accessible by car that you don’t miss the fact the house is not on the beach. You will not miss that one bit! There are plenty of stores around within the area. The beach is 5 mins away. The furthest point south was Baby Beach and that took us less than 45 mins to get there. Excellent location, safe & nice residential neighborhood.
Host: The host (Stan) was truly a super host. He was very friendly, accommodating & greeted us upon our arrival. He took his time showed us everything & gave us great pointers.

Stan owns this home and will be your primary contact throughout your stay. He was most welcoming right from the beginning. We arrived earlier than check-in so we dropped off our luggage and changed, toured the home with Stan, and were off to explore the surroundings and do some shopping. Stan will tell you everything you need to know to immediately feel comfortable in the area. His communication was rapid and he never left us hanging, for first time Airbnb-ers we couldn’t have asked for more.
Our group in Zentasy was a family of 7 which included two 4.5 year old boys. This was a big group however we never felt crowded whatsoever, Zentasy was designed by Stan and he laid it out to accommodate groups perfectly. With four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom; everyone had their own space. The only room with two double beds was for the kids and we opted to tether them into a king which Stan set up for us. The single-floor layout was essential as we needed not worry about the kids on stairs. In fact for all of us the home flowed so easily with much space to spread out, something best experienced on-site as opposed to pictures. The home opens right up to the inviting outdoor area with tons of space to spread out and enjoy the sound of the strong breeze against the palm trees.
The kitchen is fully stocked just like it would be at your own home. Everything from pans to a corkscrew is present which made it a lot easier to just enjoy our stay. One of the more surprising features of Zentasy is the stockpile of odds and ends available for use. Stan will present a slew of good quality items left from past guests such as nearly-new bottles of sunscreen, books and games, or kitchen pantry basics. There are also beach towels, large coolers to load up for a beach day, snorkel and water sports equipment and much more available to use. We did not have to overthink a thing, chances are Zentasy had it.
Zentasy is in what we thought was the perfect location. The Ruby neighborhood of Noord was extremely quiet, nicely laid out, and did not feel city-like or overpopulated whatsoever. Admittedly my family of 7 were probably the loudest in the neighborhood when we were out enjoying the pool and backyard. Around the corner are all the high rise hotels should you want a busier night out. It’s clear that this high rise area is the new place to be as opposed to Oranjestad as a lot of stores we saw relocated to the hotel area. Beaches, restaurants, stores, hotels, casinos, and bars are all but minutes away yet far enough to feel zero commotion at Zentasy. Noord is of course very safe, nonetheless the home is equipped with a security system. Renting a car is definitely the way to go, two spots are onsite, its the best way to cruise around Aruba.
Stan is an excellent and professional host and his house felt like home. As we all said to each other everyday of our stay; we would not have done it any other way.

The house is great and Stan the property manager took great care of us!! The pool is perfect for the size of house and our group size (6 adults). Stay here and you’re about a 5 minute drive from several great beach spots and the high-rise section that has all the food and shopping you need. The house has all the amenities you need to stay in but with everything so close you don’t have to. We loved our time in Aruba and at Zen-Nasty (as we called it). We can’t wait to come back.
