Requirements and tips on renting a property on Aruba

How to rent a house on Aruba

Are you considering renting a house in Aruba? Here are some tips.

When searching for a home, you need to consider the location.

Do you prefer to be near the beach? It may be more expensive. Or in the area of ​​the hills? Less expensive, closer to nature, and less-traveled area.

Consider what needs to be done outside the house in terms of lawn care and the overall size of the house.

 If you only need two bedrooms, you don't want to rent a house with three or four bedrooms. Not only will this be a waste of space, but it will also cost more in utility bills. Electricity and water are two major expenses in Aruba.

Usually, when you rent a house, yard work becomes your responsibility. You will need to consider the size of the yard and the work that needs to be done, plus the equipment needed to take care of it. Renting a house means more freedom than renting an apartment, but with that comes more responsibility. You will need gardening tools and the water bill in Aruba is high.

Before you decide to rent a condo, ask how much the housing association fee is. It can sometimes be higher than paying additional water and yard work if you decide to rent a house.

Most expats in Aruba prefer the Noord, Palm Beach, and Bubali areas because they are so close to the beach, restaurants, casinos, and hotels.

If you are moving to Aruba but have to work in another area of ​​Aruba, such as the Royal Dutch Marines, which is based in Savaneta. It will be more convenient to look for a house in the area of ​​Santa Cruz, Pos Chiquito, and Savaneta. 

If you have to work at the airport, then the Wayaca area is the closest and you can find beautiful hoses there.

The requirements to rent a property in Aruba are:

Valid ID, 2 last pay slips if you are not retired, 1 or 2 month's rent as a guarantee deposit, and the first month's rent.

The first thing you should do is put the services in your name. To do this, you must have a letter of authorization from the owner of the property.

We hope that these tips can help you and remember that we are ready to help you move to Aruba.
