Best Ocean Breezes
"When we booked a trip to the caribbean for June we hadn't thought of the heat. This was a non issue for this great home. The cross breeze going through the home was the best. We were never hot. All the bedrooms have air conditioning and each works really well. The house itself is very spacious and fully equipt with linens, towels, all kitchen items you could need and they have even thought to keep sunblock and bug spray in the house in case you forget. We made plans ahead of time for transportation from the Puerto Plata airport. The driver was recommended to us from Allen and he couldn't have been nicer. Although he is not an official tour guide he knows everyone and everything in tihs part of the DR. We did rent a car for the later part of the trip. I only recommend renting a car after you have been out a few times and got the lay of the land and definitely get the GPS. Jennys is the market in Costambar which will get you the basics. La Sirena is a walmart like store which has the most options. We discovered the store once we had the rent a car and will be making this our first stop during our next visit.
Every day we took a morning walk around the neighborhood. It is beautiful. First we walked along the beach and then weaved in and out of all the streets to admire the architecture and landscapes of the homes. We also saw roosters and horses on all our walks. We had breakfast at home and then ventured out for lunch and dinner. We went to some of the restaurants Allen recommended and they were all great. A few nights we stayed in costambar and enjoyed the local restaurants. Out of Costambar Tres Cocos was by far my favorite and for authentic dominican food go to the mofungo king in sosua on the beach. You won't be disappointed.
Last but not least is Isidro the property manager. Isidro came by every day to check on us and make sure everything was going smoothly. He is such a kind man and since we have never had a vacation like this where we rented a home for the week, he made us feel comfortable and at home.
For those who like to keep their options open this charming vacation renatal is a great choice if you like to be on tyour own schedule"

"This was the best vacation that my entire family experienced from the breakfast cooked daily in our villa to the restaurants that we ate at. You will find this resort overwhelming and I am sure that we did not see everything that this resort has to offer. We will be back."

"Nous sommes demeuré 4 semaines. Dans le condo il y a toutes les facilitées. Balcon intime alors nous avons pris tout nos repas sur le balcon. Le condo est à une minute de marche de la plage. La plage est bien. Nous avons passé des moments très agréable à la piscine en compagnie des autres locataires sur le site. Plusieurs bon restaurants à Costambar donc pas besoin d'automobile......"

"We got back on Sunday for the best week ever in Puerto Plata. This was our 7th time at Lifestyle but the first time in the villas. Our villa was lovely. It was not brand new but very clean and neat and so cute. Upgrading to a gold band is definitely the way to go. I can't tell you how impressed we all were with the restaurants and especially the beaches. Serenity beach was our favorite and the crepes were so delicious we could not get enough. The service we received from all the staff was beyond compare at the beaches, restaurants, bars and in the villa. We enjoyed swimming before breakfast while smelling the delicious food cooking and the golf cart that we were supplied made it possible to explore more of the resort and adjoining Cofresi Palms resort. The Sunday party was cancelled due to rain but we did get to go to Ocean World for the first time. It was really nice and the dolphin and sea lion shows were so entertaining. We also went to 27 waterfalls which is amazing. I would recommend to anyone who wants to see what the country is like in the D.R. IT IS STUNNING.
Thank you so much for letting us book through you and your family. As promised, everything was taken care of before arrival and we had no problems whatsoever in getting to the resort and checking in. We even got reservations at Jazz for our first night which was delicious. We will definitely be back and will book through you again."
