  • AMAZING

    "This home is a Dream!!!! from the moment you walk into the home you are greeted by three Magnificent People, Thelma, Elias and Carlos...they went out of their way to always please us. The house is meticulously maintained, The bedrooms were Incredibly beautiful, there is so much open spaces in this house and places to relax, you never feel cramped, ALways Hot Water, Air conditioned in the rooms, and the media room were so cold, you had to cover yourself...the house is a 3 minute golf cart ride to the Minitas Beach, a 15-20 minute drive to Altos De Chavon, on your Golf Cart, you dont feel the ride, because the views going to Altos is beautiful. Chef Kendy and his Sous Chef Carlos were amazing...Food was actually superior than to the restaurant we experienced one night...we all were in agreement that the food was a 5 star restaurant experience at the home. The security of the Resort is A PLUS, we had no insecurities what so ever about leaving any of our personal belongings laying around. There is a safe in each room to keep your valuables if you choose to do so. ALl of our IPADs, Phones, and Laptops were all laying around at all times. and Nothing was missing. WE ALL LOVED this house. We are definitely planning to go back next year. Thank you Maree and your incredible staff for a Magical vacation. Please let Thelma and Elias know we miss them dearly!!!!"

  • My favorite place in Las Galeras!

    "I have stayed in Casa Dorado many times, and it never disappoints. The house is gorgeous, situated in a quiet location with easy access (short walking distance) to the center of town and La Playita. Cathereine, the owner, gives excellent recommendations for things to do and see in the area--she is a wonderful host! The house has many cozy places to hang out and relax after a long day at the beach, and includes a well-equipped kitchen to cook with a group or sample the amazing food that can be served by the staff. Highly recommended!"

  • Amazing Tropical Vacation

    "Wave Dance was the perfect vacation. We were a group of 7 young professionals desperate for a vacation and couldn't have asked for a better time. The location of the house is perfect. It is a quick ten minute walk on the beach in to town (bars, restaurants, shops). We walked on the street one day and it took a little longer and was a bit scary. Driving the the DR is an art form and should not be taken lightly! Definitely recommend taking the beach walk vs. street walk. The house is located in a gated community called Bahia Arena. We felt very safe and liked being a little bit away from town because it's quiet at night (town stays very loud Thursday-Saturday). The house is a 2 minute walk to the beach. There are security guards on patrol 24/7 in the front and down by the beach. There is a small coffee shop near the entrance of the community called Cabarete Coffee Company. It is a great place to grab breakfast, lunch or a smoothie. Their coffee was excellent, and we brought some home. The house itself is beautiful. It is a great place to make dinner and relax on the wrap around patio. The upstairs has plenty of windows and we enjoyed the breeze. The house is perfect for a set of 2 families because it has the separated sides/kitchens. The maid came every day and cleaned ,provided us with new towels. She was so nice and so respectful. The house is also stocked with plenty of water. The only downside to our trip was getting sick from the water, but that was probably our own fault from being naive about the water quality. You need to be very careful and use purified water for EVERYTHING. It's east to forget when making coffee, filling the ice trays, and brushing your teeth. The house could use a fresh coat of paint in the bed rooms and the beds were not the most comfortable, but we found these things as minor setbacks. The house is beautiful and newly remodeled. The bathroom were always clean. There is an outdoor shower which is great for after the beach. The pool was refreshing, and we enjoyed grilling and relaxing at the house. The kitchens are stocked with everything you need. There was a tv and wifi, but once you see the wrap around porch- you won't want to use them very much. The beach is a kite boarders dream. We enjoyed walking to the beach each day and watching them all in action. Additionally, every single person working for wave dance is amazing. Anything we needed, they were there in 5 minutes to help us. Thank you Alex for being so awesome!"

  • Great Time was had by all

    "Perfect spot for a girls vacation!! 8 friends rented this villa and could not be happier. Villa was in a very safe gated community - never felt unsafe at all. Less than 1minute and you are at the beach, almost a private beach away from the people trying to sell you something every minute - could not ask for a prettier spot. House was recently painted and other repairs done so it was in great shape. Perfect combination of sun and shade for those who want both. Without a doubt hire the chef. We had 2 different ones during our stay and they were both superb. We ate like royalty every day. Jose the driver goes out of his way to help you and is very sweet. We had one issue and it was immediately taken care of by the owner and Peggy the manager. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure you are enjoying yourself. Town is a 10-15 minute walk away or a quick cab ride and there a re great restaurants and bars. Don't hesitate to stay here you will not be disappointed."
