  • Heaven on Earth

    "Oh, where do I begin-- Come with me as I take you through an adventurous thrill that was beyond anything I could have visioned; but, a higher power saw my great need and Answered: 'Odette'. Firstly, have you ever tried planning a funeral or any event while three thousand miles away from the venue? Well, with my sympathetic nervous system into high gear; I had such a task -- plan my beloved soul-mate "Going Home Rites and Burial". When I booked the 'Retreat' I had no idea the tremendous force my host, Merlyn, played when she dropped a hint about having the best cook in the world for an additional charge, 'Odette', her GoTO resource at Runaway Retreat". Well, was I in for a shock, not only is Odette the absolute best cook in the world; but, oh, she is so much more - a one-stop consultant/solution provider, planner, organizer, group leader with an abundant command of the needed business savvy to steer any project from inception to implementation. Odette singlehandedly took the rein in hand and didn't slow until she had constructed and laid out the blue-print of what had to be in place, making the arrangements as well as all of the details that went into making the events as highly organized and smoothly executed as they were. Just minutes after first speaking with her she put together and sent me a Budget for the events as well as an organized itinerary for all phases of the events along with delegations of the appropriate personnel to head each phase with duties, responsibilities and resources. Odette made what no doubt would have been an otherwise anxiety laden experience one of such elation and awe that though not stopping for sleep or rest for three days we all moved with pep and vigor swaying to the conscious lyrics that flowed from the musical department. To witness Ms. Odette in operation as she command the respect and support of the entire Runaway Retreat staff and all those who played a role; be it from the fishermen with whom she made arrangements to obtain the fishes, folks to buy a goat or two from as well as the hundred of pounds of chicken, down to obtaining the many pots needed along with rental of tents and tables, etc was in itself a most valuable lesson. Odette, thank you for taking my plans a couple step up the ladder in a flawless and perfect "So Long" to my Soul Mate. Finally, without Merlyn's Runaway Retreat adding the ideal setting where the various team members assembled to put it all together was icing -- Grandson had a divine time."

  • a wonderful place to spend your vacation

    "My family and I recently stayed at this beautiful unit for a week in July 2016 and couldn't be happier with our stay. The place is furnished with modern and quality appliances and is well taken care of. The owner (John) was very helpful and flexible in arranging our stay, something you don't find too often. The onsite management staff is also very helpful in making sure you have everything you need for a very pleasant stay. What I enjoyed most was the beautiful view from the terrace as I sipped my coffee and watched the sun come up in the morning. So, if you are looking for a clean, quiet and peaceful place to spend your vacation then this is the place. Ray Rodriguez New York City"

  • Spacious, attractive and relaxing - a wonderful house

    "We’ve stayed at Moonpie twice now, once in 2015 and once in 2016, and both times it has provided the perfect base for our holiday, and we’ll definitely return. The house is really attractive, so that staying there is part of your special holiday experience. It’s an incredibly easy, relaxing house to spend time in. It's really large and spacious and looks stunning, with interesting art work, but it’s also designed to be lived in and enjoyed. The main living and dining area has been designed for both comfort and practical usage, and as the other reviewers say, the kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The seating for the inside and outside dining areas is really comfortable and the outside deck is enclosed by mosquito nets, so although we enjoyed eating out at restaurants a few times we also loved relaxing on the raised deck area day time or evening, enjoying the breeze and the views. The local beach at the end of the road is great for a walk or a dip – the colour of the water is literally turquoise. In terms of exploring the island, you can make your visit as lazy or action packed as you wish – after two visits there are still lots of beaches for us to discover (either with snorkelling gear or a good book), and I defy you to bump into anyone else on any of those beaches! Thank you to Colin and Charlsie Anderson for an amazing stay."

  • Very Convenient

    "This spot was perfect, on the ground floor and very quiet. The location made it easy to walk anywhere into town including the Supermercado. Inside was nice and spacious. The shower worked perfect and we used the kitchen every day. Everything in the way of pots and pans and kitchenware was provided. The porch was my favorite place and I spent most of the time there. The porch curtains provided privacy and was nice to have. The wifi was very slow and spotty at times, but that is expected in the DR. The guards at the gate were all very nice and accommodating. I also was able to use the laundry room to wash clothes located next to the guard house. I highly recommend this place for a truly relaxing stay in Sosua."
