"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!"

"I brought 12 guys to Barranca 21 for our annual golf outing, and this location, home, and service were amazing! Kathleen was great to deal with, helped me with every conceivable detail for set up, and the staff at the house could not have been more skilled or pleasant. the house is enormous, beautiful, very comfortable, and perfect. we chose to have all meals at the house, and I'm very happy we did! from steak and lobster one night, to a pig roast another, each meal was superb. I wanted for nothing and I want to extend a big thank you to Kathleen and the staff. golf was amazing! we'll definitely be back to visit!"

"I was traveling solo, so rather than pay double the price at a hotel, I was able to rent this lovely home. It was awesome. The house is beautiful. It is older, but it is big, clean and well worth the money. The pool is beautiful and well kept. Luis is always working his behind off. He was great. The beach is nice, but I would use caution. There is a strong current...didn't bother me as I am use to this and I am a strong swimmer. If you use anddy for tours, I would caution you not to pay up front. Make sure the tour shows up before paying. Also, make sure you nail down times if you are supposed to meet with him. Really enjoyed my vacation and I hope to come back again with some friends."

"We arrived to find the colorful establishment tucked behind a children’s school and a lush palm grove. Maximo, the innkeeper, greeted us graciously and maintained the same positive and helpful attitude throughout our stay. There were many sleeping rooms to choose from, three in the downstairs main house (one includes its own bathroom, the other two share a bathroom,) the luxurious master bedroom/spa bathroom upstairs offers a large and private sundeck, and then of course there is the smaller private cabana perched right on the ocean’s edge. The downstairs living room couch boast an elaborate train of pillows as well as a nice sound system and TV with ample stations. The Sea Dog is appropriately decorated with kitchy pirate and island themed flags, banners, and posters. The colors of the Sea Dog (seafoam green, salmon, and light yellow) compliment the surrounding flowers and the nearby ocean water. This brings me to the highlight of this fine Inn…. THE INFINITY POOL OVERLOOKING THE OCEAN! You can gradually walk into the warm pool like entering the sea and float around for hours or read a book under the man-made waterfall. When my young cousins arrived they were ecstatic over “la piscina” and spent all day splashing and playing on the multitude of pool floats. In my times out of the water I would lounge on one of the multiple lawn chairs or the sitting hammock. On my first day Maximo even cut me down a coconut and stuck a straw in it, the fresh coconut milk/water was delicious. The pool and patio not only offer a breathtaking view of the ocean and surrounding cliffs… there is a staircase down to your own private beach. It is a small rocky beach, and it is all yours, sometimes you can see boats, cruise ships, or lobster hunters out in the distance but no one comes ashore. Just a short drive from the Sea Dog are many local hotspots such as Playa Grande (the most stunning beach!,) a great tiki pizza place (2 for 1 on Wednesdays,) La Hotel Catalina (has a divine restaurant,) Manny’s (excellent bar and restaurant) and Lagoon Gri Gri (where you can take a boat ride through caves to a local beach.) At the Sea Dog there is a grill and a full kitchen, so you can also choose to eat every meal at home if you are not in the mood to explore or spend more money. The Sea Dog is a beautiful and affordable paradise in a gorgeous location, perfect for families or a zen getaway."
