Overview

About the property

Unique Villa Offers 4 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, Pool - Only 150 Meters From Beach

Villa Wave Dance is located in a private gated community on the west end of Cabarete Bay called Bahia de Arena (Bay of Sand). Bahia de Arena is unique in Cabarete because it is the only oceanfront housing development on Cabarete Bay.

Villa Wave Dance was conceived to provide maximum privacy and flexibility for our guests. Designed as a duplex, there are 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, and two full kitchens. Each side can be locked off from the other depending on the desired lodging arrangements. So, if you are only in need of a 2 bedroom accommodation, you will rent only one side.

In addition, each bedroom has it’s own bathroom, air conditioner, and outside access. There is also a wrap around ocean view balcony and 2 private rooftop terraces with spectacular views. Not to mention a private pool, garden, and off street parking.

Whether you are a couple, a family with children, one big extended family, or just a group of good friends, Villa Wave Dance offers a variety of accommodation choices that are sure to provide you those private moments you seek and plenty of opportunities to be social and join the fun with your fellow guests.

The Bay is the kite surfing epicenter of the Dominican Republic, and possibly the Caribbean. You will be able to see the beach and the kites in the air from just about any living area or balcony at Villa Wave Dance. When you see them you know it’s time to walk to the beach and enjoy the show, or grab your gear and take advantage of one of the over 330 days of kitable wind in Cabarete. Either way, it’s only a 60 second walk from Villa Wave Dance to sticking your toes in the warm ocean water.

The Villa has many amenities such as cable, WiFi, safes for valuables, bottled water, a backup generator, and daily maid service. Both kitchens are fully stocked and an outdoor gas grill is provided should you choose to eat in. Bahia de Arena is extremely safe as is Cabarete in general. There is always a guard at the front gate and in a tower on the beach. There is also an extra guard patrols the neighborhood at night. Walking the beach at night is never a problem either. However I would recommend bringing a small flashlight with you for nights when the moon is not bright.

A typical day at Villa Wave Dance might go something like this. Wake up with the sunrise and make the 2 minute walk out the front gate of Bahia de Arena to the Cabarete Coffee Company next door. Walk down the boardwalk to the beach, enjoying the soft sand, warm ocean, and gentle breeze or simply lay in the beachfront hammock or lounge chairs shared by the Bahia de Arena community . After your walk, negotiate with the fisherman at the end of the boardwalk and get lobsters to grill for breakfast or lunch (about $5 each). Hang out by the pool and relax or head into town for shopping and adventure. There are a number of activities to do right in Cabarete like yoga, spinning, kitesurfing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, boogie boarding, sailing, scuba, or horseback riding on the beach. If you are feeling adventurous you can head to the national forest behind Cabarete Bay and hike waterfalls, repel down waterfalls, zip line, or mountain bike. You can also check out the surfing about 15 minutes down the road in Sosua, where locals and tourists alike line up for the best waves on the island. If you decide press on a little further to Puerto Plata you can catch a movie or swim with the dolphins at Ocean World (which I highly recommend for children… and adults too). For golfing enthusiasts Playa Dorada is 35 minutes west of us and Playa Grande, the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean, is an hour east of us. The prices are reasonable and the courses are beautiful as well as challenging. If you love nature, whale watching starts in January. However, If you just want to relax, there are plenty of options for massages and spas in town.

After a long afternoon of adventure or simply relaxing it’s time to clean up and head back to the beach where the restaurants are. Eating out can be as inexpensive or expensive as you want it to be. From a simple hand made happy hour pizza to unbelievable French cuisine. You have many options that are sure to please your budget and your palette. If you choose to dine in great groceries can be found at Janet’s. It is a 50 cent guagua (island taxi) ride or a short walk if you feel like getting some exercise. After dinner, many restaurants turn into night clubs so you can stay and dance the night away or make a quick walk down the beach back to Villa Wave Dance. At night we often enjoyed going up to the roof terrace for a nightcap and to gaze at the stars and the moon reflecting on the ocean.

The weather is moderate year round with an average air temperatures of 80 degrees (26.6 Celsius) and an average water temperatures of 78 degrees (26 Celsius). Because of the constant breeze and warm water, the temperatures rarely stray from the averages. Cabarete offers nearly perfect weather all year long, 330 of those days being perfect for kitesurfing, windsurfing, or sailing. For most people seeking a tropical vacation it’s a dream come true.

The Villa Wave Dance, the ocean, and the weather are wonderful but it is the people and sense of community in Cabarete that will captivate you. Everyone is friendly whether they are locals or sun seekers like yourself. With people from many countries such as Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Finland, and many more.

About kristin Kowalewski

We live in the USA and have traveled abroad for decades. Always searching for the "perfect" place to create a second home. We found it in Cabarete!

kristin Kowalewski purchased this villa in 2016

Why kristin Kowalewski chose Cabarete

We have traveled the Caribbean for over 30 years. During that time we have stayed in a diverse collection of accommodations, from simple bungalows on the beach to luxury homes on private islands. Although we had been to the Dominican Republic many times on cruises or to stay at all inclusive resorts, nothing prepared us for the gem we discovered in Cabarete. We quickly fell in love with Cabarete because it has the best of everything for someone seeking a tropical vacation. In fact, we loved it so much, we have decided to make it our home. We would like to invite you to also come and experience what may be the best kept secret in the islands.

What makes this villa unique

The views of the Beach and the Ocean are simply amazing. We sit on the balcony and watch the Kite Surfers play in the water every day. The breezes that come from the Ocean are all that is needed to maintain a cool temperature in the home throughout the day.

We love being able to walk out of our door and touch sand in about on minute! The beach is beautiful and a short walk to Kite Surfing Lessons, Food, Drink, Entertainment and Shopping.

We find the people in Cabarete and surrounding areas to be quite pleasant and easy to get along with.

Gorgeous House with Amazing and Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

House is unique - split into two villas with similar accommodations on each side. Our family was together but able to have privacy also.

Steps from sand where nearly every activity is a walk away. Also, easy to walk to town from street or sand.

We felt safe at all times and house was comfortable and owners so accommodating.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Location was great, views were nice, and it was convenient for kiteboarding. The only thing that wasn't clear to us was that the house is divided into two sides that can be rented together or apart. It worked out fine as they share a common balcony and its easy to make it feel like one unit. Would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: Luis, Thank you for the kind review. You were also a joy tom work with! Yes, details of our unique villa are listed, however, I will reviews and make it clearer. Many folks traveling together love it because it gives them thee opportunity of being together but also extra privacy when needed. This truly is a kite surfers dream spot! Please stay again ... I always extend a discount to past guests. Kristin

Amazing place and location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this place for about a week. The location couldn't of been better right on the main Cabarete beach but in a location that was private enough that you were away from the crowds. A short walk down the beach and you in the heart of the town with great restaurants. The house was the cleanest place I had ever stayed at the whole time I was in Dominican it was very well kept. I had my best times in the country staying here. I would really recommend this place to anyone looking for a safe comfortable beautiful place.

The place to stay in Cabarete!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have picked a better villa to stay at! The Villa is within walking distance to the shops downtown, 3 great coffee shops(one at the corner of the property!) and many beautiful restaurants most having seating outside for you to enjoy the views. Every morning my husband enjoyed walking for miles in either direction on the beautiful beaches. In the evening we enjoyed swimming in their sparkling pool. We rented just one side of the villa; which has two bedrooms each with their own bath, a dining room, kitchen, living room and a bath upstairs. The dining room had french doors that let in the awesome sea breezes and often we ate our lunches on the balcony. There is an upper deck that we enjoyed laying in the sun watching the ocean, when we needed some down time. The Villa is well managed and clean. There is also wifi, so that we could keep up with what was happening at home. We enjoyed this vacation so much that we are already planning to return next year!

Nice property and close to beach

  • 3 of 5

The property was very nice and enjoyed the pool as well. The property is close to the beach. There is a local business named Iguana Mamas where we booked all of excursions and found them to be very helpful and kind. If you really love kite surfing and speak good Spanish you will have a great time!

A great house for experiencing Cabarete

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a very pleasant stay at Villa Wave Dance in Cabarete.

Here are some highlights with regards to the home itself:

1. Excellent management: honest, helpful and communicated well. A well-maintained house never occurs by accident; I would consider staying in any property owned by Kristin.

2: The home is in great shape and ready-to-go: clean rooms, clean swimming pool, smartly decorated and thoughtfully appointed, with very well outfitted kitchens. There are many more things to praise about the house, but overall, what was shown pictures and owner's description was matched or exceeded by what we saw in person.

3. The location is ideal: secure, guarded and gated neighborhood, easy to find, close to food and fun in Cabarete, 3 minute private walk to Kite Beach, and set back enough from everything to be peaceful.

One aspect we didn't anticipate is that only the bedrooms are air conditioned, but not the main room. However, it wasn't a problem because the famous Cabarete breeze compelled us to keep windows open and spend our time on the wide veranda overlooking the trees and ocean. Furthermore, the main rooms have powerful ceiling fans.

I would stay at Villa Wave Dance again.
