                          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!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          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! Contact owner for information about additional rental units.

                          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.
