Cabarete condo description
Location, location, location this is the perfect penthouse condo for the perfect Caribbean vacation. Located right on famous kite beach a stone throw away from the breaking waves of the Atlantic ocean. Cabarete located just 15 minutes(17 kilometers or 10 miles) from the international airport of Puerto Plata (POP), there are a number of great restaurants most located on the beach. The center of town can be walked to on the beach in 15 minutes. This condo is perfect for long and short term vacation rentals, it has 2 bedrooms, 2 Queen size beds and an oversized couch in the living room that could sleep an adult or child, with a spectacular view of the ocean from every window; find a full kitchen and dining/living room with Classical art on every wall. The condo has 1,340 square feet of living space with 2 very grand sized terraces of 635 square feet total. It is finished with kaoba (Natural hardwood from the jungle) wood doors and cabinets, granite counter tops, and a spectacular vaulted ceiling. The condo features a 24 foot sliding glass pocket door system that opens the unit up to the dramatic sights and sounds of the Ocean. The condo includes air conditioners in all the bedrooms but because of the constant trade winds have only been used a few times, it includes a top-grade stove, refrigerator but without a dishwasher for the maid takes care of all dishes and comes 2 times a week or if you prefer daily cleaning service for only an extra $10/day. This affordable and fully furnished Condo is located next door to the Extreme Hotel with kite school, bar, restaurant, and a trapeze where you can sign up for a learning course. There are 5 kite schools on Kite Beach and also there is the instructor IKO class offered at Kite Club 200 yards away.
Be aware, all beaches here are not equal. It would be a real shame to book your dream condo on the beach only to find out that you have to drive 5 minutes to a beach that you can safely swim in or enjoy with the whole family. Many beaches have a bad rip current or volcanic rock outcropping that prohibits one from walking on it. I can ensure you that this not the case here on Kite Beach. Always inquire about the safety of the beach that fronts your condo.

Family kite vacation
Family kite vacation
Just returned from beautiful kite vacation at this property. The condo is large, has an incredible view and is located exactly in the right spot for a kite vacation. The pool (unlike many kite spot pools) is in the backyard so is wind protected and private. The gardens at this unit are beautiful front and back. The property is near fun activities for kids including a great surf spot, circus school (our 8yrold loved) crossift, yoga, kite schools,crossfit etc. Also an easy walk to numerous beach bars or restaurants in fact there is a great family run one next door.The staff and other condo residents are very friendly and welcoming. We stayed two weeks and enjoyed every day. The condo has windows on the windward side of the property so you can get a constant breeze if you want it. Internet was good and aircon in bedroom functioned well the few times we used it. The furniture is also very comfortable and appliances and BBQ worked great. The owner was incredible. He took us to some local restaurants and surf spots, gave us all kinds of great advice, took me on a long kite board trip, and even helped us load our bags and drive us to the airport during a rainstorm (don't worry that was the only rain we saw in two weeks). We have rented many places from VRBO and never had an owner be so concerned that our stay was wonderful. If you kite board or want to kite board there is no better place to stay on kite beach. You can launch outside your beach gate and your family can join you or watch from your huge balcony. If you want kite support. launching landing service, lessons and/or grassy lawn to wash or dry kites I would go with the gokite caberate next door. They operate out of extreme hotel and were by far the best organization on the beach. The circus school run by Paul was also great.We also found a great driver for local runs to the market or town and he also took us on an all day private "tour" to blue lagoon and playa grande that was a really special day. He was reliable, friendly, drove safely and spoke English. He has a mini-van. (Jose Martinez ask owner for his contact) Did I mention I had wind every day. I really almost don't want to post this because I don't want to compete with anyone for the unit when I go back next summer but when a place is special and the owner treats us this well I have to do what I can to express our thanks

Amazing Kite Vacation!
Amazing Kite Vacation!
The condo is located right on the beach. There is a gorgeous flower garden that leads to the beach gate. We launched our kites directly in front of the condo. From the deck we enjoyed all the crazy kiting madness. There are multiple beach bars right next door and just down the beach for happy hour. The condo had everything we needed. The sliding glass doors in the living room open up completely to the front deck letting that warm ocean breeze in. The place was secure. The pool was pristine and the gardens surrounding the pool incredible. We'll be back for sure!

Penthouse condo overlooking Kite Beach
Penthouse condo overlooking Kite Beach
Have just got back from spending over a month in this condo, it's very spacious with 2 large bedrooms which both have comfortable queen size beds & attached bathrooms. The condo has a huge deck that is perfect for sitting out at night to watch the stars or for sitting around drinking cocktails while the BBQ is on. The location is great, a short 5 minute taxi ride to Cabarete or a 15 minute one to Sosua (depending on how much of a speed freak your taxi driver is!) The beach is great for walking into Cabarete, (takes about 20 minutes) where there are numerous restaurants & bars right on the beach, spending New Years Eve here was definitely one of the highlights of our stay. We can't say enough about how helpful the owner was to us, he recommended restaurants, set up a car rental for us & told us which restaurants allow you to bring your own wine and how much to pay the taxi driver to take you into Sosua. He made sure we had everything we needed at the condo & if there was anything lacking he arrived at our door with it the next day. The condo was well equipped with a large flat screen TV in each bedroom & living room & comfortable seating. The plumbing was sometimes a little erratic, either lots of very hot water or no water at all but it never lasted for very long & having traveled to various other countries this is not unusual. Before booking this condo last year I contacted many other condo owners in the area & this was definitely the best value for a large condo overlooking the beach. Our favorite restaurants were in Sosua, Casa Valeria & Hosteria 24 although I'm sure there are many more that we didn't get around to trying. The beach directly in front of the condo is great for swimming in, there's a small deck overlooking the beach with loungers on that's perfect for watching the Kite surfing every afternoon, this provided us with many hours of entertainment. If you're into Kite surfing this would be a perfect condo to rent.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I retired in 2001 from the fire Dept. in South Lake Tahoe, CA and traveled the world for a couple of years. I always thought that I would return to live in Tahoe for it is also a beautiful place to live But I fell in love with SE Asia and then Argentina. But these areas I found to be unstable and a long way to travel to and from the USA. So now I live full time in the Caribbean here on the North coast of the Dominican Republic where Columbus felt it was the most beautiful island he had ever seen. He then established the first new world city, Navidad, right here on the North Coast.
Why the Owner Chose Cabarete:
When I discovered Kite Beach here on the North Coast of the DR and was fascinated watching the sport of kiting and was determined then to learn the sport. It was natural after mastering the sport to buy my condo here on Kite Beach and Kite almost daily. I purchased a villa close by and now can offer this wonderful condo for you to use for your pleasure.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
My condo is 1 of only 6 in the entire complex. You can be assured that you will feel a sense of privacy. The grounds have the best garden anywhere and you will be amazed by the fruits and flowers that growing here. It has 24 hour security and is close to Kite schools and restaurants next door at the Extreme Hotel. Regarding payment, when I was traveling the world I never had to prepay for my reservation at hotels, pensions or B&B's. I understand that owners have a problem when they don't live at the location and need a way to collect their money safely. So I don't want to use credit cards due to their unreasonable charges to you. Cash works fine and I will accept your flight itinerary sent to me for your reservation that can be cancelled at any time.
