Property description

OCEANFRONT TROPICAL EDEN!! PARADISE FOUND! STUNNING, BREATHTAKING VIEWS!!
PRIVATE, RESORT LIKE LIVING!!

RECENTLY THE SOLE FEATURED HOME IN A NY TIMES ARTICLE ON THE D.R.!! (MAY 11 INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE SECTION...SEE BELOW FOR LINK)


NEW IN 2014.....STAIRS TO PRIVATE BEACH BELOW!!!!!! AND WONDERFUL PRIVATE CHEF NOW INCLUDED!!!

(WE ARE NOW 100% SOLAR POWERED)!! 5 MINUTES TO PLAYA GRANDE BEACH!!


Gorgeous, new (2010) and off-grid, masterfully crafted thatched roof compound on the Dominican Republic's verdant North Coast! Just on the other side of Cabo Frances Viejo from World Famous Playa Grande Beach!! (An easy 5 minute drive).

Fully staffed villa, with concierge/manager, chef, daily housekeeping, and 24/7 security. Car and driver available, too, for an added fee.

AN AMAZING FAMILY RETREAT WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM!!

2 1/3 lush, rolling tropical acres on a 50' cliff overlooking the mighty Atlantic surf! Panoramic views! Balinese inspired layout with separate pavilions to live and sleep, each open to the ocean with dramatic views. Very private grounds with dozens of mature royal palms, coconut palms, avocado trees, mango trees, almond trees, and acres of rolling green grass dotted with bougainvillea and the like. A jungle paradise!

One enters the central pavilion through a centuries old antique Indian carved door, dramatically introducing the view of the infinity edged pool and a full panorama of the Atlantic beyond. The 'great room' has a well equipped kitchen, a hand carved oak dining table seating 16, and an incredibly comfortable lounge area with room enough for everyone! The entire wall of doors, 9 feet tall and custom made by master craftsmen from Santo Domingo, opens completely up to the yard, pool and ocean. Laze about on the terrace, pick a hammock, or sun yourself bronze...this house is heaven for relaxation!

A master suite to die for. Perched high among the palms, this double pavilion suite is exotic, wonderful, and completely open to the ocean! Even the bath! With breathtaking ocean views, shower al fresco in the morning, with nothing but you, the colorful fauna and the big blue sea! Be lulled to sleep at night by the sound of the surf and the cool, constant breeze.

The guest pavilion is comprised of two generous bedrooms, one a king and the other having two full (double) beds. Each has their own terrace and bath, and both have stunning views of the ocean and Cabo Frances beyond! Total privacy between all three pavilions make this an ideal set up for 2 families with kids, 3 couples, or just one large, extended family.
New stairs (125!) down to private beach below. Often too rough to swim, but beautiful, private, and great for shell seekers! On the rare calm day, swim or snorkel out. We have even spear fished for lobster, and swum with a friendly pod of dolphin!

Dec thru March is PERFECT whale watching season....right from the terrace!!

Minutes away from famous Playa Grande beach, a 3 mile stretch of sand, surf and seafood (caught hourly, grilled fresh, and brought to your beachside table...all for a few bucks)!

Also, a minute further down the road, is the world's best kept golf secret. Playa Grande Golf is the 'Pebble Beach' of the Caribbean. With 12 of 18 holes set upon dramatic 80' cliffs right on the ocean and surrounded by the lush green mountainside, it is a setting to behold and a challenge you won't soon forget. (Now owned by Aman Resorts, be sure to inquire as to play-ability).

This is a home designed for ease and comfort, with the amenities, but without the pretense. Its décor is simple, yet crisp, clean and organic. Help yourselves to the vegetable garden, read a book or two, and relax! Buy your fresh eggs everyday from Jonny’s chickens up the road. If the warmth and beauty of the Caribbean and its people are for you, but the pretense and expense are not....come to Cabrera!

where we are in cabrera is really quite removed from a busy tourist scene. it is a sleepy town (just a minute down the road) with a few local restaurants, some pretty good, and one quite good at the hotel 'la catalina'.

for activity, playa grande golf has recently been bought by aman resorts, with plans just completed of a course a facelift and a high-end resort called Amanera. please inquire as to playability.

other than golf, the main beach, also called playa grande, is just a few minutes down the road. it is gorgeous (as agrees national geographic) with great surf and wonderful food, prepared causally in beach shacks and brought to wherever you happen to sit yourselves in the sand. you may also rent surf boards, boogie boards, chaise lounges, etc. at the beach. the surf can be quite good!

there are also some good hikes, waterfalls, and horseback riding. but other than that, it is pretty well off the beaten path. it requires a heart for exploration and discovery, as most travel in the developing world does.

if you were keen to just relax in utter beauty and tranquility, there is no better spot i know of.

our 'tiki' villa is a good place to kick back and read plenty of books, and play plenty of cards and dominoes. we have tons of fruit growing on our trees! coconut, mango, banana, and avocado in abundance. it is a tropical paradise!

the villa is very well staffed, with housekeeping, a gardener, security and concierge, and well secured in a lovely little cove (with only four neighboring homes). and it is set up exceptionally well for hosting families, with plenty of room/s to sleep, cook, eat and lounge. we now have a wonderful personal chef named dominga, you need only cover food costs! she will prepare simple but delicious fresh food, usually the daily catch brought into el puerto just down the road, or fresh chicken, often with rice and fresh vegetables. it is not haute cuisine, but rather simple lovingly prepared food with local dominican flare. it is a terrific way to relax and enjoy your time together, letting dominga take great care of you (she even stays to do the dishes)! it is a wonderful setting for memorable dinners with the moon and sea.

the d.r. is a wonderful country in beauty and in the friendliness of the people, especially the latter.

i would definitely emphasize that it is a bit off the beaten path. that should be something you find appealing, rather than a deterrent! it is a country that has captured our hearts.
