Unit K1. You will know you picked the perfect vacation spot the minute you open the front door. Your eyes will be drawn to the 10' 3 tiered patio doors and the beautiful Ocean behind it. The colors of the gardens and the infinity pool directly on the beach make the view truly magnificent. Your large covered deck faces the Ocean and has comfy furniture and a BBQ grill. You may want to spend most of your holiday here listening to the waves and smelling the Ocean Breeze.

The living room and dinning area have been furnished with high end furniture. We wanted to bring the Dominican Republic culture into our home so we searched for authentic pieces like carnival masks and Dominican furniture. We used tropical colors in our decorating so you feel this is paradise.

The large bedroom has a king size 4 poster bed and lots of cedar lined closets. There is a large flat screen TV and many movies to pick from. The airconditioner will keep you cool as you sleep.

To make your holiday worry free we have included a built in safe, 24 hr. security, on site property manager, daily maid service all at no extra cost.

This unit is next door to an other family owned unit so is perfect for groups to vacation together.

This gated complex is 15 min. from the airport and 10 minutes from Janet's supermarket. It is a 15 min walk or a 5 min. guagua ride to the quaint center of Cabarete. Famous for it's extreme water sports like kite boarding, wind surfing and boarding it has so much more to offer. Beachfront gormet restaurants, unique boutiques, discos, casinos and miles of beautiful beach make this an exciting place to be.

With so many tours available right from your unit, golfing, snorkling, whale watching and so many amazing sites to see you can stay as busy as you like or stay in with a beverage by the pool on your private deck and enjoy the horseback riders and kiters that come right by your condo.

About Micheline Kennedy

We wish we could spend all our time in our beautiful condo but my husband still works in Canada. We can't wait until he retires and we can live in Cabarete full time. Enjoy our little piece of paradise.

Micheline Kennedy purchased this condo in 2006

Why Micheline Kennedy chose Dominican Republic

We picked this property because it was just being built and we could make it our own.

What makes this condo unique

Just far enough from the center of town to be a quiet resort. But close enough to be able to walk to the center of town and enjoy all it has to offer. It is only a 15 minute beach or street walk to the centre of Cabarete.

Very nice place to stay near Cabarete

  • 5 of 5

We had arranged for pick up at the airport with a 1/2 hour stop at grocery store for $40. Arranged with property management. This was well worth it. Our flight was delayed but our taxi driver was still there patiently waiting for us. His English wasn't the best but we have been to the DR before and are able to communicate small talk. When we got to the property, Management walked us over to our Villa. What a beautiful place! We had everything we NEEDED to enjoy our time (except a BBQ brush but from reading the previous review it seems maybe it was taken out of the villa in error. No big deal...) We had 2 safes we could use, air conditioning, washing machine (which worked great), dishwasher (we did not use we do our own dishes). There was a big binder with all kinds of information on restaurants or tours to do in Cabarete as well as a guest book to sign. Everything worked fine in the villa. Power did go out a few times but only lasted a couple of minutes each time. This villa is on the main floor, the bedroom is near the parking lot and yes you can hear some of the local traffic however this did not bother us at all if air is on you hear nothing.The pool & ocean is a short walking distance which i found very convenient. The property & villa were very well maintained. Actually after walking the beach i really thought the Victoria Condo was one of the best maintained property on the beach. Bright and colorful, nice palm trees etc..It is a very quiet place with few other tourist where you can choose to chat with or you can keep to yourself and not feel obligated to make new friends. The choice is yours. Property managers were on site however never bothered us unless we had questions. We tried to locate Martini's by the beach but the sign was small and we missed it. It is about a 5 minute walk to the right of the beach, if you take the road go left... nice place to enjoy a drink and great food! We did walk to town for groceries at Janet's ( we had brought a small back pack cooler) the walk was about 15 minutes and we enjoyed it. Not much room on sidewalk. We went out in the evening and walked home at dark around 10 pm. We didn't feel that our safety was at risk however there isn't much lighting therefore i suggest you take a taxi to return home. I loved this little villa, great price, nice view and perfect place to relax. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We do plan on returning in few years and looking forward to relax time!

A memorable holiday for the right reasons

  • 3 of 5

We arrived with a lot of hope and expectation but we're very disappointed

Arrived late only to be let in by security who had problems finding the keys

After getting into the condo we discovered No information No reception package so we had to go get supplies on our own

Next day still no property manager by then we discovered that there was No hot water No water pressure and No safe

finally I went in search of the manager and again No signage as to the office

Water pressure repaired that day hot water took over a week safe was made available at week 3

The condo was decorated nicely but the BBQ was in terrible shape utensils were eclectic

Bedroom is next o the parking lot which created a lot of noise All night making it very hard to sleep

The managers finally showed after 3 days to get the rest of their money

They made it a point to avoid us if at all possible

Not everthing was bad

Kevin did get the BBQ cleaned very very good we did eventually get hot water

The cleaning staff was great hard working friendly and very good at their job

Security was good always in sight on the job and friendly

The pool was fine but no public bathroom

the ocean close warm with lots of rollers but no undertow

The walk to the grocery store was 1.5 Kms exact by road and downtown is 2 Kms

The street has street lights all the ways

Upon departure still no sign of the managers just one of the office staff to give keys to and get our deposit back from

not a memorable holiday for any of the right reasons

Owner's Response: I would just like to add that I worked to have everything fixed as soon as I received your email telling me the on demand hot water had died . A renter had locked the safe and we did not know what combination he had used. I had to send a pass key from Canada.

Great location! Clean and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 2 weeks and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The location is ideal as it is far enough from the city centre, yet within a walking distance. The condo was clean, nicely decorated, and had comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well equipped for those who want to cook. I appreciated having the blender for making fruit smoothies.

We spent a lot of time relaxing and lounging in the patio where we can hear the waves of the ocean. Very relaxing! The staff at the condo were very friendly and helpful! Micheline was great to deal with. She answered all of my enquiries promptly.

Overall it was a great experience and definitely would go back again. I highly recommend this condo!

Outstanding Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my stay at Victorian in K-1. I spent so much time on the patio....napping, eating, reading and enjoying the view. K-1 has everything you need. Books, movies, enough kitchen accessories and appliances. I would HIGHLY recommend staying at K-1. Micheline is responsive and friendly and answered many questions I had, before I asked. An all around OUTSTANDING experience!! And the staff...top notch!! I traveled to the DR alone and I felt safe ALWAYS during my stay at the Victorian.

Great Vacation at the Victorian

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo last month for 12 days and this was my second time staying at the Victorian. This one bedroom condo was perfect for what we needed. It had a beautiful bedroom, living room and terrace and was fully equipped with even more than what we needed. Being on the main floor was also great, close to the pool and no trouble of carrying heavy suitcases up flights of stairs.

The staff at the Victorian are pleasant and very helpful and it is a very secure place. Being just steps away from the pool and the beach is a major bonus as well. It is close enough to the centre of town that you can walk but far enough away that you have some peace and quiet as well.

Overall, I would recommend this condo to any single person or couple who is looking for a great place to stay, that feels like home, but much better than home :)

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

We are just home from two weeks at this lovely, lovely condo and can't say enough good things about it!

The photos truly don't do it justice ...it is a lovingly cared for 'home away from home' with all the amenities you will ever need.

The owner was fabulous to work with from our first email inquiry to our last confirmation communication. The on-site managers Kevin and Francine were very helpful and available at all times. All the staff at the complex are warm, smiling and very welcoming. The gardens and grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The pool and surrounding area ... spotless with many, many loungers available.

And then down the steps to the glorious miles and miles of beach and ocean waves! Bliss! My husband is a runner and he ran daily on the beach - barefoot and very, very happy.

We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends.

We enjoyed walking the beach to Martini's ... great food and Happy Hour. We often walked into Cabarete for dinner and would recommend Casita de Papi (spelling?) and a lovely, small place 'Eze Beach Bar and Restaurant'. They have wonderful smoothies.

My husband took surfing lessons from Surfea Surf Shop and that was a great experience for both of us as I went along to watch. He became their oldest student ever (at age 70) and did very well! The surf camp van would pick us up at 8:15am and then all the young people staying at the surf camp complex and transport us to Encuentro Beach. This is a beautiful spot and it is so entertaining to watch the surfers! The van would then transport us home at about 11:30am. A great way to start the day!

Thanks so much to the owners for sharing their 'home away from home' with us!
