About the property

Excellent choice for people looking for a quiet place to stay close to the ocean

La Casita is a newly built one bedroom studio (275 sq. feet) surrounded by trees on a large private lot and is a 3 minutes walk to a semi-private beach. La Casita offers a private, independent getaway. It is located close to Sosua (3 kms) and Cabarete (7 kms) and 15 minutes ride from Puerto Plata International Airport (POP).

The house offers guests a queen sized bed, tv and internet access, kitchenette with cook-top and fridge, bathroom with shower, patio with seating and outdoor shower, and is close to the beach.

La Casita is located in the gated community of Escondido Bay (between Sea Horse Ranch and Sosua Ocean Village) and has 24 hour security with total privacy, yet minutes away from activities and amenities, including restaurants, supermarkets, golf courses, casinos, a nearby children's water playground (at Sosua Ocean Village in the community), gym, cafe, tennis courts, horseback riding, Ocean World , and Cabarete which is known for its nightlife, windsurfing and parasailing.

Three restaurants/cafes are in close proximity within 5 minutes walk: full-scale restaurant at Sosua Ocean Village, Bar at Grand Laguna Beach Condo and El Patio Cafe.

The seashore has a lot of fish making it a good location for snorkeling, fishing and spear hunting.

Private vacation

  • 5 of 5

La Casita was a wonderful choice since I wanted a more private vacation away from crowds. The house is away from the city but close enough to everything you need; there is a few new restaurants and hotels with bars/restaurants nearby and is only a short drive to Sosua city centre or Cabarete. It is a small house but has a kitchenette, internet, air conditioning, etc. The beach is beautiful and is a very short walk away; there wasn't too many people which is exactly what I wanted. The price was great for what I was looking for in a vacation rental. There were a few bugs, which is expected, and it can get hot if the air conditioning isn't on. Overall, La Casita is a great spot to have a secluded vacation.

Lovely Casita in Sosua

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed La Casita, a wonderful getaway from the city rush. It is a bit isolated but is very close to a beautiful beach. Being very modest it still has all that is needed including kitchenette, mini-fridge, air conditioning, cable TV and Internet with WiFi. It is a good value for the price. The only thing we would like to suggest is an arrangement for transportation, like a phone number for a cab that would be helpful.
