According to AirBnb, home owners in Aruba that decided to rent out their house using their services, made an average of $9.200 in 2018.
A house in this location could easily rent out between $150.00 – $200.00 a night.

You only have two options when it comes to buying or building a house.
The first is when you buy a house, or build a home on freehold property land. This means you own the land, and will have a deed to show for it.
If you’re not the outright owner of the land, you’re going to have to lease the land that belongs to the government.
It’s normally a long term lease and paid every year, depending on the location of the land. The price is higher near the hotel area.
The annual lease fee usually increases after the lease is renewed after 60 years.
