"We had such a great time staying there (2 weeks)! The place is very clean (Danni the caretaker cleans the place twice a week), very spacious, a good air flow, and very safe. The kitchen is well equipped, linens and beach towels. Beautiful garden, small swimming pool and gazebo at the back.
The apartment is attached to the main house yet very private.
Costambar is a very quiet gated community, very few traffic, so the area is pleasant to walk around without pollution or traffic noise. Beach is walking distance,10 min, so are the restaurants, 5 min, not a whole lot of choices but "Sole mio" was our favorite!
Getting outside Costambar you can take a motoconcho to the main road C5 or walk, and from there take a guagua (local bus) for a few pesos. 45 min to Sosua , 1 hour to Cabarete, it is worth it and gives you a real local experience!
But more importantly Yash and Hemu are the nicest hosts you can have, extremely helpful and friendly, any questions you can have, feel free to ask. They truly made our stay very special, we enjoyed sharing conversations with them. They are around minding their own life, yet available if you need need anything without being intrusive.
They do care that you are having a good time and that you are not missing anything. We had a few rainy days, actually torrential rains and Yash came to check if we needed anything or needed to go anywhere. On several occasions Yash drove us to the main supermarket in Puerto Plata and the currency exchange for best rate.
This is a place for a peaceful and relaxing stay, and we highly recommend this apartment.
We were sad leaving and of course cannot wait to be back!"
