  • High Quality Condo, Excellent Owners

    "This was our second stay in this condo for a period of one month each time. This condo is well maintained, with high quality finishes and decorations. It has everything you need for a short or long stay. The owners are very accommodating and want to ensure their renters are very satisfied with their stay - there is definitely pride of ownership here. Any issue we had was quickly handled by management in a smooth and quick manner. We stayed in a different 2-bedroom unit at the Victorian last New Years, and it was just not as well equipped and decorated as here. We wanted this unit (O-1) again, bit it was not available. The location is excellent - just east of the hustle and bustle of the heart of Cabarete. Close enough to walk to restaurants and bars, or rent a scooter, or simply hop on a moto-concho for 50 pesos. Cabarete has something for everyone - just relax at the pool or near private beach at the Victorian, or spend time in town shopping, eating out, or dancing and drinking. There are so many restaurants with great food and cheap prices. Some of our favourites - Casa Mami (real home cooked Dominican style food), Gorditos (best fish tacos ever), El Buen Comer (right across the street from Victorian - awesome Dominican food, only open for lunch), Mama Mia (try the fried Pizza!), and Mojit Bar (best Mojitos in the world, and amazingly fresh sandwiches). You can also visit some amazing sights around Cabarete. We loved: Playa Diamonte (best beach ever!), Playa Grande, El Laguna DuDu (amazing water), Laguna Gri Gri, Playa Magante (Check out a place called Los Gringos and say hi to Patrick, the owner), 27 Water Falls. You will need to rent a car to visit these places, bet it is well worth it. Don't be scared to drive a scooter or car here - it is not as scary as you might think. Just drive with a little more caution and patience. We rented a car for three days, and a scooter for the month, and never experienced any problems. We also recommend renting bicycles - it is a great way to get around, and get in your exercise. For quick trips to Janet's (local grocery store) we would just hop on the bicycles. We always felt safe here and the security is excellent. Always a guard at the front gate, and one to two walking the grounds - 24/7. This is probably the most secure complex in Cabarete. The grounds staff are very friendly and the maids are the happiest people we have met. We can't wait to come back again and stay in this unit."

  • The perfect place to relax and rejuvenate

    "We stayed in this beautiful condo for 3 nights. It was comfortably furnished, had everything we needed and more, and was so peaceful that we didn't want to leave! The view from the porch is incredible and the ocean breeze and sound of the waves makes the living area a great place to relax and rest. We enjoyed the private beach and pool with comfortable lounge chairs and incredible views. Only a few minutes drive away from Cabarete, the condo is the perfect place to stay away from all the noise but close enough to all the action. The condo was clean, well cared for, and quiet. The air conditioning in the bedroom kept it nice and cold as long as we had the door shut. The on-site staff was friendly, courteous, and knowledgable. I highly recommend this condo!"

Cabarete Travel Tips

Enjoy the Laid-Back Ambiance at Cabarete Vacation Rentals

Cabarete is a small laid-back Caribbean village located on the northern shore of the Dominican Republic. It’s one of those idyllic retreats that you see in movies but seldom get to experience. Your booking confirmation should come with a warning that you may be tempted to never leave. In fact, many visitors have made this piece of paradise their home. Staying in a vacation home in Cabarete can allow you to experience this life, even if it is just for a short while. The nightlife is vibrant with beach bars, restaurants, discos and casinos staying open late. Mingle with the locals and enjoy some Latin beats on the dance floor. Many visitors to Cabarete are young people looking for a fun-filled vacation and as promised, the island delivers.

Cabarete Travel Tips

The Puerto Plata International Airport is just a 25-minute drive from Cabarete. Taxis provide transport from the airport into town or alternatively, you can hire a car. The airport services a number of North American and European carriers. As an alternative, you can also fly into Santo Domingo, Punta Cana or Santiago. However, getting to Cabarete from these other airports can be time consuming and expensive and therefore not worthwhile. It’s a good idea to get a map of the Dominican Republic before traveling so that you can familiarize yourself with the different areas and travel distances between the cities and towns. When departing from the island, make sure you reconfirm your flight departure time well in advance. Sometimes weather dictates schedule changes so it’s important to check this information before traveling to the airport.

Activities near Cabarete Villas

Cabarete is one of those places that you can enjoy by simply lazing about on the idyllic white beaches or by partaking in a wide variety of activities. Cabarete was put on the map by the kite boarding and windsurfing fraternity. The area was discovered to have the perfect combination of wind and wave conditions to allow excellent windsurfing and kite boarding virtually year-round. On any given day, you can see the colorful sails and kites spread out across the bay. El Encuento Beach is a popular surf spot nearby.

If you’re up for some inland adventure, join a canyoning excursion. Experience nature mixed with some adrenalin thrills that you won’t soon forget. Beautiful natural surroundings, magnificent waterfalls and crystal clear rock pools make for an exciting day out.

Guided mountain biking tours are offered for riders of all levels. If you’re a novice, you can enjoy the island's sights as you cycle around on wide roads and paths. More experienced riders can follow the trails that cut through forests and ascend the rugged terrain that makes up this beautiful island.

A nine-hole golf course is minutes outside of Cabarete and further east is the 18-hole Cabrera Playa Grande Golf course which was designed by Robert Trent Jones. Said to have some of the most beautiful fairways in all of the Caribbean, it’s be one of the most enjoyable rounds you’re likely to play.

The Cabarete Caves are part of the nearby El Choco National Park. The caves contain relics from the Taino natives who inhabited the island prior to the Columbian era. Guided tours will provide you with interesting facts about these early inhabitants.

Cabarete Is a Destination for All Seasons

Located on the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean, Cabarete enjoys a warm tropical climate. Summers are hot and winters hardly even exist. The only difference being that the cooler months have lower levels of humidity. Isolated rain occurs throughout summer but these clear up quickly. The only downside of the weather at Cabarete is that the island is in the hurricane belt and tropical storms occur frequently in the later summer months.
