If you are looking for a 5 star resort, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a clean place that is not over crowded that is conveniently located to nice beaches, this is a place for you. We found the place on Tripadvisor and exchanged a few messages back and forth. We then followed up with a couple phone calls with John, the owner who is a resident of Canada and spends a lot of time in Aruba, to confirm some of the details and the location. We stayed Monday to Saturday after staying a few days in Oranjestad. We wanted a place that we could make our own meals and do things at our leisure. We rented a studio but it was way bigger than any studio I have stayed in. It had a very spacious bathroom, a full size fridge, a microwave, a stove top, toaster, blender, a full sink and lots of pots/pans, dishes, serving utensils, tupperware, ice cube trays and glassware. We made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the beach and we brought some frozen meat from the US in a cooler to grill by the pool (glad we did as the meat at the stores did not look as good as it did back home in our opinion). We grilled out by the pool and found the grill under the palapa to be fine and then heated up our leftovers from grilling or eating out in the microwave as need. The pool is an extremely nice infinity pool with palapas all around. The place was a 2-5 minute drive to a couple beaches that were not overly crowned like Palm Beach. Hank, the manager, was on site daily and asked if we needed anything and the cleaning lady was extremely pleasant and would greet you each morning. Our room was cleaned daily and we were provided clean towels. As others have said, the furniture is a little dated, the wifi may not be as good as it is at home and the hot water is not extremely hot but if you are looking for all of the amenities, you are better off renting something that is going to cost you twice as much. I would definitely recommend others to try this place as long as you are not looking for a 5 star hotel and we will more than likely stay here on our next trip to Aruba.
We were fortunate to find this great affordable vacation spot at last moment on Travago. First time on the island and felt right at home. All of our needs were met! Appreciated the use of the cooler and chairs to take to the beach, the BBQs, and the lovely clean pool. Kitchen was equipped for our every need. Staff person was very attentive and friendly. I highly recommend Cucunu Residence!
We were at the property for 9 days and the stay was excellent. We chose here because of the reviews online and we were not disappointed. It was very clean and the pool and pool area provided a relaxing atmosphere both during the day and in the evenings (we had dinner poolside several evenings). The property is within 5 minutes drive of several of the beaches and a shopping area as well as the high rise hotels. Henk provided us with maps showing places to visit, as well as was very helpful in suggesting sites to see, he was very helpful and ensured our stay was lots of fun and memorable. He even gave us a ride to the shopping area and provided info about bus routes to and from the property. We advise renting a car which Henk can arrange, everything is within 30 mins drive. The property is clean and very spacious and all the amenities to feel like a home away from home were available. There is a supermarket nearby that should be able to supply you with everything needed. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone travelling to Aruba.
2 beautiful weeks in the best place of Aruba.Good service and good location.The owner is very friendly and with the wife are very sweet.Hank, the manager is the TOP. Always available for all our things and I'm looking for organize my next trip there because Aruba is an happy island but Cunucu Residence is a great place!
Just got back and wish I was still at the Aruba Cunucu Residence. It was a great place to stay with a perfect location - close to beaches and everything else you needed in a really nice, quiet and safe neighbourhood. I was very impressed with how clean everything was kept and we had all the comforts of home and more. The pool is just amazing and nice to be able to walk out from your private patio doors and go right into your own pool - morning, noon or night - it was so refreshing. With the great Air Conditioning in the unit and the ever blowing tropical winds outside it was always a very comfortable temperature and the weather was just beautiful every day. We had everything we could ask for and were taken care of very well by Henk & Gloria - so helpful and just wonderful to have right on the premises. I would not hesitate to recommend this residence to anyone, anytime and can assure you it is an incredible rate for what you receive. I will definitely be going back to Aruba and staying at the Aruba Cunucu Residence!
Just returned from another great stay at Aruba Cunucu Residence. Unfortunately, it was a short 3 night stay. As always, everything was clean & comfortable. Manager Henk is always friendly & accommodating. We usually need an early check-in or a place to leave our refrigerated foods & luggage (since we usually arrive directly from checking out of our timeshare) We hate to inconvenience anyone with an early arrival but, Henk is always so accommodating & goes out of his way to help us with our request. Great to have a place & staff you can trust that does their best to meet your needs. Looking forward to staying longer next spring.
My Uncle and I stayed at the Cunucu 7/26 to 8/6 2015. The owner John and the manager, Henk went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. The setting was so peaceful in a quiet neighborhood with an infinity pool overlooking natural vegetation. We enjoyed being away from the craziness of the High Rise beach areas. The beaches and amazing snorkeling were 5 minutes away. The sleeping areas were separated for privacy. Both sleeping areas had their own air conditioning and TVs. The kitchen was fully equipped including a blender! Beach chairs and coolers were available for rent. A phone is also part of the rental (you need to buy a card to load minutes) It seems like they think of everything to try and make your trip easy and enjoyable. We will definitely stay again next time. Reserve ahead as they have repeat guests and book up early!

“Lovely pool. In a fairly nice neighbourhood, fairly close to the beach. Must have a rental car, but that can be taken care of very reasonably through the reservation with john. Rent 4 cheap is a great company. Henk will take good care of you and the cars are new and very clean. Would definitely use then again. Great time in Aruba. B & b Kurtz”
