Great Condo in a Great Location
"We stayed at this condo for a week and had an excellent time. The owners were a pleasure to work with, gave us good advice on where to eat and things to do, and were prompt in responding and returning our security deposit. They offered to arrange for pick up from the airport but we were renting a car for other reasons so we did not take advantage of it.
The condo has a living area facing the beach and then two nicely separated bedrooms, each with a bath. It is ideal for two couples.
The condo is in a very good location, perhaps 100 feet from the beach. Being on the second story was a plus as it provided better breezes and better views of the beach. The sound of the waves was a relaxing background to our entire vacation. The front of the unit has full width sliding glass doors opening onto a covered porch, where we spent essentially all our time. In our opinion, this condo was one of the most ideally situated of all the units in the complex. Every day we walked the beach, which was one of the highlights of our trip.
The complex is probably three quarters of a mile from the center of Cabarete, and it is possible to walk there on the beach, the last quarter mile is a trail along the bluff. Cabarete has a nice grocery store (Janets) and a bunch of good restaurants. There is also a nice restaurant (Martinis) perhaps a quarter mile in the other direction right on the beach.
The condo is in a fairly laid back area. We saw a number of older couples, young couples and young couples with children. Most of the wind and kite sailing is closer to downtown Cabarete. There are a number of companies that offer activities such as diving, zip lines, the 27 waterfalls, wind surfing, etc, and they will all pick you up at the condo, so a car is not really needed.
We did some diving and highly recommend Dive Cabarete; they were excellent. All the diving is from Sosua, a town about 15 minutes away (but the Dive shops will pick you up).
All in all, this is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.
A couple of things to note: The wifi log in information is actually on the cable box on the TV. We had to hunt for it. There is no laundry in the unit, but there is free laundry in a building off of the parking lot."

"Stayed in the apartment for a week. Owners were great at communication, very quick to answer questions and provided a wealth of knowledge before my trip. Had a bit of a hiccup upon my arrival but to no fault of the owner (property manager mixed up the apt #), the owner made sure I everything was ok and checked in on my every 30 mins until everything was settled and enjoying happyhour. The apartment is cozy and comfortable. The complex is quiet and clean, residents and security are friendly and helpful. The best thing is the location! You cannot beat it, anywhere from a 2-5 min walk from restaurants, beach, bars, etc. I was alone and felt safe walking on my own in the evening, however I did have friends walk me home late at night after the bar. I was there in low season so after 1am the streets were pretty deserted. I would recommend the place to stay (and already have). Thanks for everything Karl!"

"Highly recommend this place. Well maintained, Vern is very easy to work with. Easy access to either Cabarete to Sosua. While a vehicle is not necessary, it certainly makes it easier to get around. Watching th elites each night was incredible!"

"Brian-I am so sorry for not replying sooner. We had an AMAZING time on Kite Beach. Your condo was perfect and met all of our needs with an 18 month old. I got up early every morning and did a 2 mile run to the surfing area and would surf until noon and then run home to meet my husband and daughter for lunch. We loved eating at the Extreme hotel or at Vacabar above Audrey's kite school, Dare2Fly. We had a couple meals in town…but these two spots were great food and so easy to access from the beach. No need for a car for the entire trip! After lunch my husband would begin kiteboarding and my daughter and i would hang in the kiddy pool. The kiddy pool was ideal for her. The staff in the complex were awesome and they were fabulous with our daughter. She quickly learned all their names and practiced her Spanish with all of them. Audrey was a great match for my husbands coaching. He really excelled under her supervision and has progressed well beyond what we had imagined…jumps and all!"
