Puerto Plata condo description

Located 3 Miles west of the City of Puerto Plata in quiet Costambar. Newly furnished 1 bedroom, one bath unit on the first floor. One minute walk to beach. Daily maid service, casinos nearby. Good base for exploring the North Coast of the DR. Much to see and do.

Check out the Puerto Plata report and specifically, Costambar Monthly, for tons of info on Costambar and Puerto Plata.

Nice coral protected beach which is great for children. At a low tide you can walk way out and there is lots of sealife to investigate. Be careful when walking because openings in the coral can go 50 feet deep. Great for snorkeling or diving. Locals fish and snorkle with spearguns and sell their catch, the more spanish you speak the less you pay.

Newly refurbished, Cable TV, daily maid. Maid will do your laundry for a reasonable fee. Towels and linens supplied. Maid cleans floors, bathroom and makes your bed and empties the trash, you are responsible for everything else. The towels are changed every other day and sheets once a week. No Phone , no air-conditioning. Daily power outages. We have a generator that runs on a schedule and I have a battery backup for fans, lights and fridge which together provide 24 hour electricity. Deposit and signed rental agreement necessary for reservation. I answer e-mails promptly on weekdays.

Keywords: apartment, casita, suite, 1 bedroom condo, 1 bedroom flat

                          Year Purchased: 2001

                          About: Born and raised in Germany and sailed the Caribbean for over 6 years on Windjammer type Ships. Now living in Florida to continue working in the marine industry designing Yachts and outfitting commercial vessels.

                          Why Puerto Plata:
                          I decided to purchase the property 2001 because for me it was the affordable Caribbean. Puerto Plata is a charming town, the people are very friendly and the weather is reliably warm in the winter. Florida in the winter is not a reliable beach vacation. It seemed as though everytime we vacationed in Florida we caught a cold front. Not the case in Puerto Plata. The water is 80 degrees in the winter and 85 in the summer. My unit is on a short street, Calle Padre Bilini, that ends at the beach. There is a green area behind the complex. The mountain in the background is Mt Isabela which has the Caribbeans only cable car. I always enjoy getting away from the hustle and bustle of life in the USA.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Newly refurbished...My unit is in a small 18 unit complex called Seabreeze Suites which is located in Costambar a community 3 miles west of the City of Puerto Plata. Costambar is rural and the DR is third world. My place is nice but it is for experienced travelers. The DR is not the US. You will know you have been on vacation out of the US. The people are very nice and it is safe to go wherever you want taking the precautions you would take anywhere else. I can recommend a Spanish tutor for those of you that have an interest in learning a little espanol or want someone to work with your children. She could also serve as a guide and her rates are very reasonable. She will come to your apartment. If you don't speak spanish and haven't been to Puerto Plata before she would save you money. Rental cars are cheaper in the DR than here in Flordia. I've stayed in the Playa Dorado complex several times and the rooms there weren't impressive in relation to my unit. So the difference in renting my place from a hotel is that you are on your own. The benefit of being able to cook your own food is two fold, it is cheaper and you don't get sick.
