About Karl or Deanna

husband - retired flight instructor,

wife - pharmacist

Karl or Deanna purchased this condo in 2004

Why Karl or Deanna chose Dominican Republic

We plan it to be our dream retirement home. Mountains for hiking, ocean for swimming and snorkelling, windsurfing, kiteboarding, sailing. Fantastic back roads for moto cross. Surrounded by people from all over the world. Almost forgot, fantastic foods. The pool is almost 45 feet long. Good enough for doing laps early in the morning and lazing about with drink in hand later with the other sun worshippers. Biggest challenge - where do we dine tonight?

What makes this condo unique

Almost everything is available like at home but all with that special caribbean flavour you've heard people talk about. A 750 ml bottle of rum coss less than $5.00. Merengue and Bachata music are infectious and will get even senior hips to move to the beat. And then there are the Dominican ladies . . .

Super condo in Cabarete - Cita Del Sol

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing summer!! Everything was perfect except for the wind... Kiters that comes to Cabarete every summer said that it was the worst summer for the wind in about 12 years. But hey, it was hot and we had a blast anyhow. The kids really enjoyed their summer and looking forward to come next year again. And we will bringing along some friends.

The condo was perfect. The site is beautiful and well taking care of. Nice trees and flowers and very clean. The kids had a blast in the pool. Very big and perfect for kids; it is not to deep and for the adults chilling or doing lengths. Your condo is perfect. We had everything we needed. Nothing was missing. We felt comfortable just like home. The kids slept very well on the sofa so has us. Never had to use the water heater, we had enough hot water from the sun. The maids were very nice and their cleaning once a week was perfect. Honestly, I can't think of something to be improve.

All the information you have given us was very useful. We had a little problem the first time we used the washing machine. All the water leaked on the floor... That is part of life, nobody had control on that. Andrea took the situation in hand right away and 24 hours later it was repaired.

Janet's Supermarket is only about 8 minutes walk. Everything is close and it is easy to do everything just by walking. The condo is close from the beach. Even with all of our kiting gear we didn't think it was far from the condo.

We thank you very much to have let us stay at your place. We had a wonderful time!! We will come back for sure!! We'll get in touch with you. And we will recommend your condo to our relatives and friends that are looking for a vacation in Cabarete.

Simply Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the good fortune to stay at this beautiful condo. I had not been to the Dominican Republic in many years; and my one experience there in the past was not positive. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! With a lovely balcony and a fully equipped apartment, the ocean and beach literally across the road, an extremely nice pool in the complex, restaurants and a bakery near-by, what more could you ask for? The apartment is at the back of the building, and I was amazed at how quiet and peaceful it was, especially since the busy street could be quite noisy at times. Other reviewers have mentioned the rooster. I did not hear him at all!! Dining on delicious seabass on the beach was one of the highlights for me. I heartily endorse all the wonderful comments in the other reviews. Cabarete has got to be one of the best kept secrets of all time.

Month in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month in the Dominican Republic and loved it. Everything was perfect. The locals were friendly and helpful and the beaches are beautiful.

Our condo was right in the middle of Cabarete. We could walk everyplace and never felt threatened even at night. There were lots of good restaurants on the beach and in town. We walked to the grocery almost every day. Nice selection of everything we were used to having. There were several bakeries near us so we had fresh made bread--delicious. The "veggie man" stopped by the complex once a week with fresh fruit and vegetables. Also, you could get nice local bananas, avocados, and mangos on the street

The condo is just as it looks in the pictures online. Had everything we needed even a washing machine. I thought all of the condos had one until I mentioned it to someone in another condo and they didn't have one and were jealous. Karl has the nicest pots and pans I have ever seen in a rental (better than what I have at home). Yes, the kitchen is small but I managed to cook lots of good meals I was excited to have a gas range. Honestly, there are so many good restaurants nearby that you will want to eat out a lot! A plus was having maid service every week.

Yes, we hard the roosters in the morning but after a few days we slept through their crowing. In fact, we loved having the barrio off our patio. Made us feel like a part of the community. As other guest have noted, Karl is wonderful to work with and always prompt in answering emails. We hope to go back to DR in the future and make our Cita del Sol condo home again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

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!

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment through this web page and stayed for 2 months. It was a very nice and cozy apartment with a very good location. Coffee shop and bakery just over the road. Grocery stores, all the restaurants, bars, shops, and the beautiful beach is just steps away. Unlike some comments here suggest, we didn´t really get bothered by any noise or sounds. The kitchen was very well equipped and we did not miss a thing when we (tried to) cook food. Its also a small bbq grill at the balcony. Cleaning staff kept the apartment perfectly clean, almost like a hotel. The complex has 24 hrs security, we felt safe all the time. Although this is not a huge penthouse apartment it was more than big enough for the two of us. The owner (Karl) is very friendly and service minded. We have no complaints at all and can only give our best recommendations!

Fantastic Winter get away spot

  • 5 of 5

My first time visit to the DR and I lucked in!! The owner(s) were most helpful with providing information about Cabarete, including the approximate costs for food at the local supermarket!! As I was on my own I found the location to be absolutely perfect.... within a short walking distance to all activities/restaurants and a simple hop skip and jump to the fabulous beach.The management of the building was terrific and problems (very few) were dealt with on a timely basis. I did not experience any problems with this unit and was pleased with the services provided. The fact that it is on the 3rd floor provided enough privacy for me to leave my door open as well as the balcony doors (screened) while I was home with only the ceiling fan to keep the place cool enough for me. I never used the air conditioner and as a result Hydro costs were minimal. The decor was uplifting and I definately felt surrounded by tropical colours and local flavour while sitting on the balcony. The kitchen is very well equipped...quality pots and pans,microwave and even an oven with the stove! I did use the charcoal BBQ upon occasion when I entertained or had a guest from home. The pool is large and provided ample space for exercise and leisure swimmers at the same time. The grounds are well kept and the staff friendly and helpful. The most appreciated luxury I thought was the washing machine!Yes..a washing machine!! Personal laundry did not have to be lugged around town and it certainly was no effort to hang laundry in the area provided at the back of the building then hop into the pool or just pick it up on the way back from the beach. If you like happy hour with live music, I suggest a visit to The Lazy Dog Bar and Grill ..4pm or so to 6-7pm ..turn right either on the street or beach and walk east....good people,music and just plain fun. My TWO month stay here was most enjoyable,the stairs provided much needed exercise, as did the daily beach walks with some wonderful splash times in the ocean and the pool. I truly recommend this condo for any age group, both for the location and especially the cost for such a well equpped condo. Karl you could not have been more helpful and agreeable. I do hope that others feel the way I did while in your spot. K

PS Cabaret has local sounds throughout the day as well as night....as Cita del Sol is centrally located you may consider ear plugs if you are a very light sleeper.....I got used to the sounds and knew I was away vacationing!!
