Lush Sprawling Paradise on the Ocean's Edge
"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."

"Stayed in the apartment for a week. Owners were great at communication, very quick to answer questions and provided a wealth of knowledge before my trip. Had a bit of a hiccup upon my arrival but to no fault of the owner (property manager mixed up the apt #), the owner made sure I everything was ok and checked in on my every 30 mins until everything was settled and enjoying happyhour. The apartment is cozy and comfortable. The complex is quiet and clean, residents and security are friendly and helpful. The best thing is the location! You cannot beat it, anywhere from a 2-5 min walk from restaurants, beach, bars, etc. I was alone and felt safe walking on my own in the evening, however I did have friends walk me home late at night after the bar. I was there in low season so after 1am the streets were pretty deserted. I would recommend the place to stay (and already have). Thanks for everything Karl!"

"We had a great week in Cabarete and this apartment was fabulous, everytime was more them expected, the owner Cindy has done a wonderful job making sure she offers everything to make it a memorable stay. We enjoyed going to the heart of Cabarete everyday and the boys had surfing lessons and went deep sea fishing. My husband enjoys dominican fish so he had it for the first three days. The weather was perfect. We will definitely be back again. Bennie was there waiting for us to make sure we settle in with no problem. Thanks Cindy! Would love to meet you one day!"

"We had a great time at Rosa's lovely house. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The meals were great and the nice big backyard provided plenty of room for the kids to run around. Highly recommended."
