I stayed at this Beautiful Condo in Puerto Plata with my Fiancee. Indeed, heaven does exist as I imagine.. The Condo is located in a private secure setting about 20 minutes drive from Puerto Plata Airport. However, I arrived into Santiago Airport and Jack ( the owner ) arranged for a transfer (small fee) back to the house. Once on the grounds, we felt safe and comfortable romancing our holiday away. The Condo was clean and well set up for Internet, satellite TV and all the mod cons required to make your holiday enjoyable and relaxing. There are a couple of really important aspects to this place that sticks out for me and why I will return again and again.... Electricity in Dominican Rep can be unreliable. However, Jack the (really nice Guy and very professional) owner, has thought about this at length and provided both back up batteries and generators in order to over come problems, when they occur with power. The other positive that sticks out is the size of the pool, combined with the privacy. Finally, the staff are all very positive happy and helpful. Enjoy and experience Heaven !!!

Two week vacation but wanting more
Two week vacation but wanting more
I stayed for 2 weeks and thorougly enjoyed myself Screens on all of the windows and door were a welcome touch as it kept out most of tne mosquitos when leaving the windows open. And you are definitely going to want to open the windows. The breeze was fantastic. I usually have issues with heat rashes and allergies, but had no issues here. Jack and his team took good care of me and genuinely wanted my stay to be the best i have had. I rented a car and Antonio who works there noticed that the front tire was low. He pumped it up a couple of times until i could get to a tire repair in town. The condo was large, with nice living room furniture (no wicker and i could stretch out on the sofa), king size bed, and what a fantastic view of the ocean. I would sit and have my breakfast and coffee in the dining section while looking over the ocean. I never turned on the air conditioner as it wasn't needed. I liked the pool as it was long enough to swim lengths for exercise. The complex was very tranquil and relaxing. I am definitely coming back again and I highly recommend it. Thanks Jack and crew for a wonderful experience.

I found out about these condos through a dear and personal friend of mine so I booked the condo sight unseen trusting my friends judgement......boy was I surprised when I arrived!!! The condo really exceeded my expectations. From the immaculate grounds and pool, to the extremely friendly and helpful english speaking staff, to the very spacious and clean condo itself.....I was simply amazed. I was really pleased with every aspect of this condo. I have been to the DR several times and have stayed in condos, apartments, and hotels before and this place ranks in the top of all my previous stays. The proximity to the beach, grocery store, and restaurants (walking distance) was all very nice and corforting too. I really enjoyed my stay here and will be recommending the Seahorse to friends and family alike as well as making this my first option when I return to the DR. Thank you again to the staff for helping my stay as great as it was.

Seahorse Condos in Costambar Dominican Republic is a good alternitve to an all inclusive hotel if you would like to experence more of the Dominican culture. The Seahorse is owned by an American Jack Cameron from Minnesota. He has two Dominican staff members with who are better than fair English speakers. So if your command of Spanish is not so good they are very helpful. The 24 hour Security is very good. Costambar is a gated community that has a nice beach, golf course, and nice restaurants in the community and very close. The Seahorse Condos has very nice ocean and mountain views. It has a pool large enough for laps. Topical plants are everywhere. They have one, two and three bedroom condos at reasonable prices. The condos are well furnitured with king size beds. The Seahorse has a backup electric system that will operate your lights, fans and TV in the frequent power outages in the DR. The backup system is not powerfull enough to work the Air-conditioning, Microwave or Refregerator however. So if you need a 4 or 5 star hotel the Seahorse will disapoint. If you are looking for more of a personal touch you can find it here. If you have questions about the Seahorse Condos please e-mail me at email@example.com .

The host owner is a super nice guy, more than fair , he will do the right thing for the guest, all his staff are fine persons... wonderful hospitality and service in this fantastic place....For me and My lady it was divine.......you and all your staff are 'salt of the earth' people!...the safe secure , warm , well appointed and hospitable atmosphere was so nice....as you probably will concur , Dominicans are a special and warm people.... I realized that even more as I have re-immersed myself back into American culture/interaction.... I will go back and recommend it to all I know

I am a professor at the University of Michigan and relocated to Costambar for several months for work. I was so fortunate to find Jack's place in Costambar and the absolutely gorgeous Sea Horse Condos. I have been incredibly impressed by the professionalism of Jack and the staff, who make everything so easy, comfortable, and beautiful. It is a very secure complex close to the beach, with the best views of the ocean in this area. I have been coming to the Dominican Republic for many years for work and pleasure, and have never found such a first-rate long- or short-term rental with such complete full service and security, so close to the beach. The pleasant attitude and helpful "we-go-all-the-way" approach of the owner and the staff truly make this an unusually perfect place to plan either a short-term vacation or a long-term stay. I highly recommend this location. Happy vacationing! Que aprovechen! Dr. Mark Padilla University of Michigan

Think, Quality and Value!! Quality refers to the new furnitue, beds and lots of cookware and utensils.Now I believe 99% of travellers would want an honest answer to a very important question. How good are the beds, I'm proud to assist you by announcing ,NO Problems. Jack has 5 star beds that you would not expect and a Huge problem for you has been eliminated. Electric outages are still common in the DR and if your renting a place that is not an all-inclusive place, you need to know how good the owners property has provided. During my visit , in mid January of 2009,ther was a rain and wind storm that knocked the power out in a big way. People who have homes in this gated community of Costambar have learned to install backup systems. Well,at one point after 4 days Jack's place was one of the few places (from Jacks rooftop view you could see only one or two lights from other places. Almost every residence had exhausted all the power their back up system could provide)meanwhile At Seahorse all was well, providing hotwater and full power. I urge you to ask other rental owners in the DR what steps they have taken when these power outages occur and you'll get that Jack went alot firther!! The staff are all very warm, friendly, speaking different degrees of English so your needs are understood and attented too, A.S.P.!! Finally, the Value is his rates he charges for all discussed above plus,free internet and Cable TV providing lots of English and French channels, is simply unbeatable. I have done a 2 to 3 month rental in Jamica, Mexico and DR. Any North American who needs to escape our ruthless winters and has decided on going to DR. Jack's Seahorse Condo's are going to keep you smiling everyday in everyway. R. Perlin

Owner response: wow thanks richard, the staff enjoyed having you here and ask about you 2 months after you have left ! hurry back ! jack
Great place to stay in Costambar. Everything works in these condos, a rare thing in the DR. There was always hot water and electricity without the sound of a generator. Jack the owner takes pride in his place and it shows. I will be back again!

In my view Jack Cameron's Seahorse Condominium rentals offer by far the best value close to Puerto Plata. Having previously rented various other apartments in the area, this was a most pleasant experience. Everything a visitor could desire (but, alas, not necessarily expect in the DR) is on offer: safety, comfort, cleanliness, quiet surroundings, mosquito screens, constant supply of power and (hot) water, personal attention, proximity to beaches, restaurants as well as the city - and at a reasonable price. In addition Jack is just a great guy who will go out of his way to make you feel at home. Highly recommended!

About the owner: i have been investing in real estate in minnesota and wisconsin for 25 years. when we came on vacation here, the dominican republic reminded me of Hawaii, but at a fraction of the cost. great locally grown coffee is less than 2 bucks a pound here ,fruit is cheap and veggies, chicken and fish are reasonable. so it has Hawaii weather but living at a fraction of a price. the ocean views here are spectacular, and the breezes keep it cool enough, that i never use the air conditioning ! we think we have developed condos that are a great value, and are in close proximity to the beach, city, everything !
Why the Owner Chose Puerto Plata:
gated community, next to major city, for access to nice supermarkets, and stores, and medical facilities, and close to the airport, as well as great beaches, nice restaurants , golf course options, one hour from santiago, city of 1 million.
