Making old young again
"Sunshine, blue water, a nice pool and the ever present Mojito. It doesn't get any better. A short walk down the beach brings 9(?) beach front restaurants as options. Living on the
East coast, we would love to have these possibilities. A gated community with 24/7 security (I don't know why it's needed)a totally private pool, and a super tanning location over the pool house is just the for starters.. For a truly beautiful sight, a walk on Kite beach in the afternoon is a must for great pictures and brilliant colors
It was a great week that we are still talking about. Oh yes, one of the better French
restaurants you will find this side of France. Thanks for a great week, you can bet we will tell our friends and family about your home.

"This was the perfect condo and location for our vacation. The condo was perfectly suited for our 2 families with spectacular views of the pool and turquoise ocean. Roni and Josh made planning extremely easy and they were always available and responsive to questions. The property concierge was very east to work with arranging airport transportation, grocery shopping, dinner reservations and booking excursions. Melania the property maid was wonderful, helping to make our vacation that much more relaxing.
We had several excellent dinners including Blue Marlin, Aquamare, La Palapa and Il Capuccino. We also enjoyed walking around the Marina in the evenings. Transportation within Cap Cana could not have been easier. We always had van service readily available for our party of 8.
We enjoyed several days just at the pool and beach in front of the condo. There were so few people it was like having our own private resort. At first, we did find it a little strange that there were so few people, but we really came to enjoy the serenity.
We also took advantage of a day at the Caleton beach club, a lunch and day at Juanillo beach and 2 rounds of golf at Punta Espada. Our plan was to play one round, but the course was so amazing we played twice. We really enjoyed excursions to Scape Park within Cap Cana and to Macao Surf Camp for surfing lessons.
I would highly recommend this property to other families."

"My son and i checked in at this beautiful thatched roof compound and ocean front retreat with great expectation of experiencing the authentic Dominican Republic lifestyle as I had heard Cabrera would offer in comparison to its neighboring islands and boy were these expectations met!
We pulled up to the house and the first impression is simply picturesque standing under the enormous thatched roof built over the house's living room overlooking the infinity pool into the ocean which is literally 50 feet from the house - nothing beats that !! The air was fresh, the ocean breezes, sounds of the waves, open air living throughout the compound. Dominga was our cook for the vacation and she surprised us everyday with a new dish or dessert. Service was attentive and Dominga tried hard to please. She were very accommodating about the menu for the in-house meals and tried hard to find fun activities for my son(8) and myself. There are all manner of tours, activities and attractions available as well, like Kite-boarding, Windsurfing, whale watching, zip-lining, 4-wheelers and trips around the country to enjoy, too, if that is your preference. This house offers everything you need for an amazing quiet retreat and I am definitely coming back to stay here again and re-experience the friendliness of the people that resides on this island, the astounding and unspoiled nature and beaches and the rare tranquility that is just so hard to find in today's hectic everyday life.
Great spot altogether for a vacation! - a truly remarkable experience in today's world!!"

"I stayed at Villa California with 2 friends for 4 nts. We really enjoyed the stay, would definitely return and highly recommend this place.
First of all the owner, Chris, is a stand up guy. He was easily reachable, very patient through all the questions we had beforehand and was kind enough to accommodate an early check in and late check out (due to flight times).
There are a lot of things we enjoyed about our stay here. The location is excellent, only a five minute drive to the center of Sosua, about 300 pesos if you cab. Close to the beach, Cabarete, etc. There's also an amazing 2nd floor patio where we spent a lot of time.
The house is on a large lot, secured with a gate and at night a security guard would show up and stay till 6am and that was comforting given the house is on a public road and not in a gated community. During the day, the security guard at the compound across the street was extremely friendly and helpful with arranging taxis and directions.
Each of the 3 bedrooms had a full ensuite, an AC, ceiling fan, lots of closet space, a safe, and lots and lots of towels and linens. The beds were very comfortable and the entire place was clean upon arrival. The kitchen had all the cooking supplies you need although some were a little worn out.
There's a beautiful pool in the front yard and the entire lots is very nicely landscaped and has several coconut trees. The groundskeeper who came daily to tend to the pool and lot was kind enough to chop down and open up some fresh coconuts for us.
The entire staff from the groundskeeper, security guard and cleaning lady (she came once during our stay) were really kind and friendly. We made sure that they were all tipped, we shared food and water with them, and made conversation with our broken Spanish.
The property manager that greets you upon arrival is very helpful and thorough and easy to reach if you ever have any issues.
This is the 4th villa I've rented in the Dominican Republic and would definitely consider staying here again if I'm back in the same area and need 3 bedrooms."
