There are a number of time share properties available for rent. Much like a condo or apartment rental property, Aruba vacationers enjoy renting timeshares because of the comfort and space. Timeshares also make good vacation rental properties because of the amenities offered by the resort or hotel, such as a health club, business center, pool and on-site restaurants. Very often one can reach an agreement directly with the timeshare owner to rent their unit for a week or more. When negotiating with owners it is very important always to confirm with the timeshare resort that the member actually owns the unit they are renting and is also in good standing, in other words is up to date with maintenance fee payments for the unit advertised. An email to the member services department of the resort in question is often all it takes for this verification. To get in touch with owners who may be renting their unit, please visit our Aruba Timeshare for rent forums.
