Property description

Casa Bonita is a beautiful 3 bedroom villa for rent situated right on Cabarete Bay! It is a short term or medium term rental-Available weekly or monthly. It has its own private pool and 6-person outdoor jetted jacuzzi. Casa Bonita is in a gated beach community with 24 hour security. The house is perfectly situated in the center of the development, 60 seconds from the beach. It isn't on the perimeter so it is away from any street noise and has a lot of privacy. There aren't many houses steps away from the real Cabarete Beach on the north shore of the Dominican Republic but Casa Bonita is one of them!

We have a private Roof-Top Deck with an Ocean and Mountain View! It is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday or an active one. Our beach and trade winds make the perfect launch spot for kite surfing or windsurfing. You can sunbath on the beach or sit up above under the palm trees overlooking the ocean on our neighborhood's private green space. We are in between Kite beach and the town of Cabarete! We are also a short ten minute drive from the surf spot of Encuentro beach. Cabarete is only 20 minutes away from the Puerto Plata International Airport. Our home is in a lovely beachfront community, which has 16 Caribbean style homes in an extremely picturesque setting. It is a gated community with 24-hour security and a tennis court next door! You can hear the ocean waves from the house, which is only steps from the beautiful, golden-sand beach of Cabarete Bay with palm trees for shade if you wish, if not there is plenty of sun!

The village of Cabarete is spread out across the center of a gorgeous, semi-circular beach. We are a ten-minute walk from the heart of the international town of Cabarete with its quaint restaurants, casual and fine dining, and its infamous nightlife. The distance to Cabarete is close enough for convenience but just the right distance away for enjoying the tranquility that Bahia de Arena offers. You may have heard a lot about the Dominican Republic lately in the New York Times, CNN and many other nationally syndicated publications, it is being touted as the next undiscovered hotspot. Well I can tell you that it is being discovered but it is still very affordable and not crowded.

Nestled amid Cuba, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico in the heart of the Caribbean archipelago, the island of Hispaniola (Little Spain) is divided between Haiti, on the westernmost third of the island, and the Dominican Republic, which has a lush landmass about the size of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. In the Dominican interior, the fertile Valley of Cibao (rich sugarcane country) ends its upward sweep at Pico Duarte, the highest mountain peak in the West Indies, which soars to 3,125m (10,417 ft.).

Much of what Columbus first sighted still remains in a natural, unspoiled condition. One-third of the Dominican Republic's 1,401km (870-mile) coastline is devoted to beaches. Columbus sighted its coral-edged Caribbean coastline on his first voyage to the New World and pronounced: 'There is no more beautiful island in the world.' The first permanent European settlement in the New World was on November 7, 1493, and its ruins still remain near Montecristi in the northeast part of the island.

The Dominican people are some of the friendliest and happiest people in the world, unlike some destinations, they welcome tourists and go out of their way to ensure a great vacation. Cabarete is also world famous for being one of the top windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, SUPing and now sailing destinations. Any activity that you want to do in Dominican Republic is possible either right in Cabarete, or a short distance away. Besides the watersports, there is horseback riding right on the beach, canyoning, kayaking, waterfalls and yoga!

Casa Bonita is a 3-bedroom, single-dwelling 2200 square ft home and as compared to any other house in Cabarete bay it is considered a luxury house rental; it is beautifully decorated with premium furniture, indoor and outdoor eating areas, large open living room/kitchen concept with 21 foot vaulted ceiling, a panoramic view of a private tropical garden with private swimming pool and in-ground 6-person Jacuzzi Tub (non-heated, suitable for cooling down while you relax and/or fun tub for kids)! Quality mattresses on all beds, screens on all windows, private outdoor shower for rinsing after the beach, very large roof top Ocean and Mountain view Deck. It is a Gated community with 24 hour security. Maximum occupancy 7 people. Master bedroom, King-size bed/ Air-conditioned. Second bedroom, Full-size bed/ Air-conditioned. Third bedroom one-twin, one-full bed/ Air-conditioned. Ceiling fans, stainless steel appliances; dishwasher, microwave, gas oven/stove, full-size refrigerator, blender, toaster, coffee maker, all necessary kitchen supplies, ipod speaker dock, Cable TV, DVD, Wireless internet, a safe, 2 bathrooms, the master-bedroom bathroom has a large 2-person jetted tub and the other has a bathtub and shower. All linens, including beach towels, 6 day a week maid service. Meals prepared, if desired, nominal fee, Driver available, if desired, negotiated fee depending on time and distance.

Travel expert Lonely Planet describes the Dominican Republic as a great place to party, relax or explore, saying: 'The white-sand beaches, impressive mountain ranges veined with spectacular rivers and waterfalls, and saltwater lakes teeming with exotic wildlife are just part of the appeal.'

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $250

Notes:

Check In -- 4:00 pm/Check Out -- 11:00 am. A generous electricity allowance of 40 kilowatts per day (don't worry, no renters have ever gone over this amount, we only put it in to protect against abuse of the electricity which is very expensive in the D.R.). Refund Policy: If you would like to cancel, we will do our best to re-rent the house for the same time period. If we are successful we will refund you your money after we have received the money for the new rental from VRBO or other sites we use (which usually takes 5-7 business days after the renter has checked in).


Owner's cancellation policy:

Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.

Bahia de Arena is a gated community with private beach access for residents and renters only. There is a beautiful grassy area with palm trees and chairs overlooking Cabarete Bay with steps down to the beach. Truly one of the most beautiful spots on Cabarete Bay! Also, if you are a kitesurfer or windsurfer you can be assured this is the best, least crowded launch spot on Cabarete Bay, with the perfect tack to the best waves on the reef!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

Why the Owner Chose Cabarete, Dominican Republic:
There is nothing like having your own private house and pool for your tropical island vacation. There are few private houses on Cabarete Bay and Casa Bonita is one of the nicest! It is a wonderful home with a great vibe -- it is very special! It is open and spacious and beautifully bright. The birds, flowers and trees are plentiful. Perhaps you will be here when the banana trees are ripe and you can get the organic bananas right off the tree! You will feel an incredible sense of peace and freedom here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Maria our housekeeper is wonderful and comes to clean 2-3 hours per day, 6-days a week. We can also arrange for her to prepare your food for a small charge if you wish. Best residential villa development on Cabarete Bay. Best kite surfing location. Gorgeous beach and very tropical. This house is located in the center, closer to the ocean, of the development, not on the perimeter, sides or road.
