  • 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."

  • Great Vacation

    "We enjoyed our vacation stay at Johnny's place. The condo was perfect; modern, specious, beautifully decorated, kitchen is well equipped, internet worked excellent for 5 of us. We loved the balcony with the view of the marina where we spent most of the afternoons. Pools and beach are magnificent there.People by the pool work really well trying to accommodate you with chairs, umbrellas, etc. We loved the fact that there were very few people. Beach is by far one of the best there. Not too wavy, not too shallow, water is very worm and clean, just perfect. You do need a car to buy groceries as taxi ride is about $40 one way to the grocery store. There is very good description of Cap Cana on Trip Advisory site. Yes, you do feel isolated from everything there, but for us it was very relaxing and enjoyable vacation. There are couple restaurants walking distance, but they were always empty, probably because they are pretty expensive. The best grocery super market is in Punta Cana or by airport, which is about 15 minutes drive. Johnny and concierge service were very responsive with all the questions.Thank you to all for making our vacation perfect."

  • Grate for family

    "We stayed at Wave Dance Jan14th-Feb 10th 2015.We were a large group and rented both units, 5 adults and 4 children (12,10,5,3). We loved our stay in the DR!! The house was clean and comftorble. Upon arrival we arranged Geoff and Peggy were very helpful with all ( and we had a lot) of questions! They helped us arrange pick up from the airport by Jose, we flew in to Santiago de los Caballeros, if you can avoid flying in to there i would do so!! I was a 1 1/2 hour drive to Cabarete. Puerto Plata is only 30 min away! We arrived at the house late evening and we were greeted by Peggy's assistant to show us around the house to get us settled which was very nice!, Jose also took us in tho Puerto Plata that night to grocery shop so nice!!! We chose to not rent a car while in the DR and it turned out just fine! Jose lent us a phone so we could call him to arrange travel as we needed. He took us on a day trip to the most wonderful beach, and let us stay all day and play!!There was a small grocery store right down the street that was fine for day to day things, and once a week we got a cab in to Puerto Plata. We would walk to town during to day on the beach or the street and it was fine,a little stressful on the street with the kids!! DO NOT walking al night!! I repeat DO NOT WALK AT NIGHT!! The house was very family friendly, all the doors to the pool area lock and the back top deck does not have assess to the ground floor, so we felt safe with the little ones! The house is in a gated comity and all the guars were so nice and friendly! We felt very safe! We we're a large group with lots of different interest so we went our own ways some days but we found a few things that all of us could do together, and all ages could participate! We went almost daily in the early evening to Kaiceitos Circus School,the kids LOVED it!! We took a day trip with Kayak River Adventures and it was one of the highlights of out trip!T hey picked up up in the morning and provided snacks and a dinner cooked by a family over a open fire that was to die for! This was a great adventure for all ages, we had ages from 65 to 3 and they all enjoyed it! These two things we're very affordable:) We all also enjoyed the horse back rides that are right on the beach! Our big splurge was Ocean Wold in Puerto Plata, we took the older kids to swim wit the dolphins and it was worth every penny!!It was a fun place!I think we had the most fun just hanging at the house at the pool and at the beach!WILL BE BACK!"

  • Quiet and Serene

    "We were looking for a tropical place to stay away from the crowds and our wish was granted! We felt as though the beach and pools were just for us. We were concerned, given the time of year, that we would be fighting for beach chairs, but that was hardly the case. The condo was comfortable and tasteful. We were two families (four adults and four children) and the amenities and size were perfect. Having the maid, Melania, was a bonus. Wonderful having clean clothes every day and Melania was happy to cook breakfast and dinner at our request. Everything you need is within walking distance. The $3 cab ride (total for the 8 of us!) to the private beach club was a treat. Visit Caleton if you have a chance - high end private beach. We went twice and loved it. Roni and Josh were exceptionally timely in their responses and seemed truly invested in making certain we had a great time. Only negative (sort of): the concierge was ok. Some were more helpful than others. Plus, there were some communication issues. (Be forewarned: if you order groceries for delivery, make sure you have cash to pay the bill at the end of the week!) Overall, however, they were great in directing us to where we wanted to go. We look forward to visiting again!!!"
