The Neighborhood

There are so many things to do and see on the North coast it will depend on your likes.

We love just walking on the beach for hours, or a refreshing morning swim in the sea. (or the pool below your terrace)

We have the premiere Zip Line course on the North coast 15 minutes away at Monkey Jungle in El Choco.

One of the best surfing beaches on the island is 5 minutes by car or moto concho

The Amber museum in Puerto Plata which is a 30/45 minute drive.

The Botanical Gardens on Mount Isabella in Puerto Plata is a great day trip.

Caving and waterfall tours are also available through tour operators in Cabarete.

Horse back riding on the beach.

River tours and so much more.

Do you golf? We have many fine courses on the North coast.

Late January to Early March is the time for whale watching in Samana.

Tours to Las Terrenas and Samana, about 2 hours from Cabarete, can be easily arranged.

How about a day on a 75 foot catamaran right off the beach in Sosua!

Snorkeling trips and of course the diving is great as well.

All extra of course, but reasonably priced excursions close to the condo.

About Jim and Fiona Lehenbauer

Fiona is a retired diplomat with the Italian government, speaks Italian, Spanish, French and English. I'm a retired Aircraft Maintenance Tech from Davenport, Iowa USA. I speak English....:-) and a bit of Spanish and Italian.

We visited the North Coast of the island in 2009 and simply fell in Love with the place and eventually bought a property and built our retirement home here.

We arrived for good in 2011. We bought the condo in Cabarete as our home as we built our house.

Fiona paints and I do some IM to pass the time. We also share a love of cooking and gardening and do both activities together.

We Love Cabarete and the whole of the North Coast and we are sure you will as well. The beach is never crowded and you can walk for hours in either direction. The choice of restaurants within walking distance of 727 is incredible. Italian, French, Dominican, Mexican, name it, as well as the good old Hamburger. Janet's Market on the east end of town has a large selection of whatever you may need to cook up in the condo. Or, grab a cab and go into Sosua and the Playero Supermarket for a bit bigger selection and more restaurants and the quaint Sosua Bay Beach.

Jim and Fiona Lehenbauer purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jim and Fiona Lehenbauer chose Cabarete

If you've been here before you will find this condo a cut above most in Cabarete and in Ocean Dream. If you haven't experienced Cabarete or Ocean Dream you will be pleasantly surprised by this unit, it's accessability to Kite Beach and all the things you need to enjoy your stay.

Getting around

Take a Moto Concho for the brave, or a local bus for pennies into Sosua. Or rent a car and check out the area.

You can catch a taxi from the airport for about $35 USD. If only two I'll pick you up for $25.

What a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the vacation rental we were in awe as to how beautiful it was! the pictures on line are beautiful, but really dont do the place justice, its so much more beautiful in person. If you like to cook, the kitchen was well stocked with all the modern applicances that you need to feel comfortable in the kitchen.

Its just a few minute walk to get to the beach.

We also appreciated the serenity of the the complex, it was very nice and quiet. The grounds and gardens are very beautiful and very well kept.

It has all the comforts of a hotel and the coziness of a home. We difinitely would highly recommend the Fifis Beach Hideaway place for a nice relaxing vacation with friends and/or family. We look forward to staying there again.

Heather and Eric's Stay at FiFi's Hideaway in Cabarete

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend Jim and Fiona's place to anyone who wanted to stay in a beautiful, clean, safe vacation rental. We just spent our first visit to the D.R. at the beginning of January, we had the best time. Jim and Fiona were so helpful and kept in contact with us before/during our stay, he even recommended a one night stay in Santo Domingo because of our late arrival, and I'm glad we did. Once, we arrived at their rental the place was everything and more, it was like being at home we had everything we needed, the place was super clean. I would get up every morning and sit out on the back balcony that faced the pool, drinking my coffee. I loved that we were steps away from the beautiful beach. You are within walking distance from the local beachside restaurants, bars, and shopping, it's located in the prefect spot. We had such a great experience I would highly recommend staying at their place. We were and hour from the Waterfalls that is a must see, you can go horseback riding on the beaches, and we enjoyed the beaches everyday. I will hopefully get back to the D.R. and I would stay at Jim and Fiona's place again. Thank-you for making our stay a great memory.
