  • Oh, my! Where do I start!

    "FABULOUS is the word! This house is everything stated...perfect location, beautiful, WONDERFUL staff. Ana is the BEST! We begged her to jump in our suitcase! She is super sweet, speaks perfects English, house was always spotless, wonderful cook...I could go on and on. Johnny was always so accommodating to any need or question we had. They both were so patient and kind to us and our teenagers. So many times we leave a vacation saying "that was fun, now, where should we go next?" This was one of those vacations where we left saying "that was amazing, when can we come back HERE??" Once you've stayed here and experienced the DR this way, NO where else even enters your mind! Thanks, Doug, for being so easy to work with and your many suggestions and helpfulness. We WILL be in touch for future visits at your fabulous home!"

  • A Week in Paradise!

    "We had a FABULOUS week at Tiki and loved every second of it. The week was everything we hoped it would be -- and more. What a beautiful, unique, amazing home the owners have built. I have never seen anything like it. We felt like we were staying in a 5-star resort, only we were the only guests! We loved relaxing in the back, around the pool, each and every day. The weather was perfect. We saw so many whales. Our 9 year old son spent hours stalking and catching lizards in the gardens. We had massages arranged by Delila on two separate days -- heavenly. The men went spear fishing right off the beach in front of the house with a guide who Gabriel hooked them up with. They thought it was the best thing ever. They caught tons of fish, plus an octopus and a crab, which Dominga cooked for us in various delightful ways. Speaking of Dominga, she was wonderful. So kind to the children! And we had a lot of fun with her, too. Her cooking was DELICIOUS and she surprised us with new dishes at every meal (which was different from our experience in the Dominican last year, when the cook basically made the same rice, beans, plantains, and chicken or shrimp or fish at every meal!). She was so flexible and so ready to do whatever we wanted. We tried hard to get her to take a day off, but instead it seemed like she started cooking for us 3 meals a day instead of 2 toward the end of the week. (Don't worry, we were happy to give her a cash gift at the end of the week.) Also our daughter turned 6 while we were there, and Dominga got the most beautiful pink iced cake for her. Margaret was thrilled! The other staff was so nice as well and we have nothing but rave reviews for everyone. Mildred was so sweet. As was Gabriel. We really didn't venture out from Casa Cabot very often, basically because we were so happy and content to sit by the pool or in the hammock and read or play cards or games. We did go to Playa Grande one day, and we went to check out DuDu blue lagoon one afternoon and found another private beach near there where we stopped on the way back. All excursions were good. We have rented luxury homes all over the world -- Tuscany, Provence, New Zealand -- and this vacation home was right up there as one of the most beautiful, relaxing places we have ever been. We will be back!"

  • Luxurious comfort, Beauty, Relaxation

    "Where to begin about our experience renting Ron and Bette’s luxurious home in Cabarete. I was delighted and relaxed from the very first correspondence I received from Ron when I initially inquired about their property. His witty humor, timely responses, and wonderfully detailed explanations have continued over a period of months as we were planning for this very special trip and had many questions. They went to such great lengths to take care of us that we feel as if we are family.We followed every bit of their advice; from what to pack, where to eat, contacting Carlos for transportation and car rental, contacting Wilson to arrange for a river tour, traveling to the waterfalls, visiting Playa Caleton, making reservations at Natura Cabana, and even where to shop and exchange our money. It was an amazing experience from beginning to end and a vacation we will never forget. My favorite memory is sipping our morning coffee on the balcony and watching people horseback riding along the beach. Playa Caleton has the most turquoise and calm water; a real treasure but the waves we saw crashing along the shoreline from our balcony every day during our stay were spectacular! The view from the moment you open the front door and step inside this home will take your breath away! Not only will you be standing in a very grand, open entryway but you are greeted with panoramic ocean views that entice you to drop your bags at the door, step out onto the balcony and take it all in. The home itself is beautifully decorated and very spacious with three large bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, beautiful tile, and custom painted murals and artwork throughout. The kitchen cupboards are fully stocked; the bathrooms have an abundance of towels, wash cloths, and a hair dryer; the bedrooms are beautifully furnished with plenty of storage for your belongings and comfortable beds piled high with pillows; and there is even a washer and dryer! As if the pool and hot tub located outside aren’t enough, there is a beautiful whirlpool bathtub with a separate walk-in shower in the master suite! And to top it all off, there is a wonderful Dominican woman, Milagros, who will come in to clean and fluff every day (except Sunday)! Seeing her gentle smile and hearing “Hola!” each morning added another level of perfection and personalization to our vacation which Ron and Bette are masters of providing to their guests. Ron and Bette, thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Lovely vacation in a very quiet environment. Taxi are affortable but for people who likes to enjoy walking it is a 40 minutes walk to town."
