- This small town was actually founded in 1944 by Jewish immigrants. In 1985, my first vacation here, Sosua was still a laid back, sleepy little town. Today it offers nice hotels, B&Bs, Casinos, superb seafood and International cuisine restaurants, water parks, museum, art galleries and of course night life. Here you find everything from German butchers, bakeries to Italian, Mexican and Thai restaurants. A place which offers a very special vacation to everybody ! If you do plan a lazy / relaxing day at one of the beaches or you do prefer water sports, Sosua just has it all. In approx. 10 minutes drive is the famous Cabarete Kite-Surf-Beach, Mini Golf. Who comes to Sosua once will come back!...moreless

I HAVE STAYED AT THIS WONDERFUL VILLA TWO TIMES. BOTH STAYS WERE FOR 8 DAYS. IT IS AS ADVERTISED. THE VILLA WAS CLEAN AND VERY SAFE. IT COMES WITH AN AUTOMATIC GATE IF YOU HAVE A RENTAL CAR. THE OWNER IS VERY HELPFUL AND GOES OUT OF HER WAY TO MAKE YOU STAY MEMORABLE. I LOOK FORWARD TO MY NEXT STAY

Best Vacation Ever
Best Vacation Ever
Arrived at the villa and was greeted by Andrea the owner. She explained how everything worked in the villa and gave us our key, that was the check in easy and no line ups. All the photos shown are a true representation of the villa. The villa was very clean all the time thanks to the daily cleaning by the friendly maid. The pool very nice and very clean thanks to the daily cleaning from the gardener/pool man (Bernardo). The villa is located within 15min. walk to downtown and the main beach. We took taxies to and from the villa to the beach. We used the same driver for every where we wanted to go. We used a very nice guy named John who spoke very good English, if you stay here is number is in the guest book. The owner Andrea also drove us a lot as she lives right beside the villa. The villa was decorated very nice and all the furniture and beds and linens were all brand new. Towels and soap provided. You can do your laundry so you can travel home with clean clothes. If you love flowers, plants, birds and dogs then this place is for you. Natures paradise, wake up in the morning to the relaxing sound of birds singing. Andrea has a dog named Milli who is a wonderful dog who loves to come over to visit. We had a wonderful time at the villa, everything was great and would recommend it to family or friends. We wish our stay could have been longer than the two weeks we booked. Things you must do : Monkey Jungle, Cabarete beach, If you are reading this review it means you are contemplating weather or not to stay here. You will not be disappointed if you stay at this villa. Before I picked this villa I researched many different ones, none of them compared as far as the amenities provided and also the reasonable price of Andreas villa. I am so glad I made the right choice of picking the right villa for my vacation. I can not wait to return next year. tyler

Christmas 2012 in Sosua
Christmas 2012 in Sosua
We stayed in this beautiful villa from December 21/12 until January 4/13. It was perfect in every way and Andrea, the owner, was so helpful and accommodating. The villa had everything we needed and exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and the maid came every other day and she is a very friendly lady. We had a party one night and after everyone left, Andrea's gardener came and cleaned everything up for us. It was very unexpected but a nice surprise for us and we certainly appreciated it. We liked that we could walk in to town in half an hour and there was everything there from supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. There is also a German deli about a ten minute walk from the villa as well as a little shop that had just about everything you could need, including liquor, beer and ice. We would definitely recommended this vacation property to anyone considering it and we would have no hesitation in being repeat customers. Just remember, as stated in the ad for this villa, there are animals next door so be prepared for some noise but it never bothered us. It was actually nice waking up to the birds singing in the mornings. If you are interested in diving, I would recommend getting in touch with Pablo Santos, Aqua Adventures by Scuba Dive Sosua located in Sosua at the Beach Entrance. As well as being a great dive instructor, Pablo is your go-to guy for just about anything you might need. He was a great help to us. A fabulous restaurant to check out is Chez Arsenio at the Hideaway Beach Resort in Cabarete which is just a short cab ride away and if you have a sweet tooth, check out a delightful bakery in Cabarete called Belgium Bakery. There is also a great cafe called Fresh Fresh which is only about an 8 to 10 minute walk from the villa and their food was excellent. All in all, we enjoyed every aspect of our vacation in the Dominican Republic.

About the owner: My name is Andrea Thumeyer and I have been living in the Dominican Republic (also referred to as D.R.) since May 1985. When I first came to D.R. for a three-week vacation from my home country of Germany I fell in love upon arrival! This island is now my stay-cation; the vacation that I now permanently live in! In 1985 this wonderful Island had breathtaking and scenic views of the beaches, rivers, and country sides. The people were friendly, cultural and humble. And the food and music - were both filled with great island flavors (ask me about my favorites)! Now after living here for over 28 years, I can attest that this love has grown even more so since 85’! Lastly, I wanted to let you know that I am a huge pet lover and believe that each home should have a pet. I am also involved in an animal rescue and have saved many Dominican dogs, cats, birds, turtles and more. Currently I live with 11 dogs, 3 cats, over 850 birds, about 110 salt and sweet water fishes, 7 turtles and who knows what comes next.
Why the Owner Chose Sosua:
This villa is situated right next to my first home which I bought in 1999, to have more space for my pets and me I purchased it in 2003. With this villa I had not only more space, there are also carport, laundry and a pool. When friends came over we enjoyed the BBQ in this villa. Now it is a wonderful and relaxing vacation home!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This newly renovated villa is perfect for a unique vacation with all it has to offer. Extremely high ceilings keep the house cool all year long. The king palm trees in front give it a special Caribbean touch. Since the surrounding lots are without homes cows and horses come to eat the grass. Wonderful to watch the calves playing. The villa is close to ALL amenities - from beaches, night life, water sports to golfing, less than 15 minutes drive from the International Airport of Puerto Plata, there is also a 24/7 Emergency clinic in only 1 minute drive. The closest Supermarket is to be reached in 2 minutes drive.
