This condo is amazing! The location is a few minutes walk to everything you could hope for in Cabarete, yet secure and private enough to relax away from any crowds.
The condo is a ground floor with a walk out onto a beautiful lawn directly to the pool. The interior is very spacious and well appointed. Plenty of room for the two families that stayed there. Our families consisted of 2 adults and 3 teens each.
The pool is huge and uncrowded even during the Easter week, the busiest time of the year. The beautiful beach is a few steps away, through a locked door to ensure security and privacy. My husband is an avid kiter and absolutely loves this place. The kiting is awesome and for those who have looked, finding a great kiting location out your back door is nearly impossible to find.
This was our second time vacationing in Cabarete in as many years. We just returned, but are already in the process of planning a return next year.
The property manager Sonja and owner Eric are very helpful and lovely to rent from.
We returned for our second year - so you should infer that a returning guest is a happy guest. We have been visiting Cabarete for more than 10 years, and have found our favorite lodging in this condo. Comfortable, great location, well-equipped, staff very responsive to any needs, fabulous beach-side pool. Easy walk to town for restaurants. We're already reserving next year.
This apartment is one of the loveliest destinations in La Republica. This is our primary destination in the Caribbean. There are several features that make this apartment so special, two of which are: the Ocean view and surf directly across from the Patio; the other is the hospitality and diplomacy of Sonja, the property manager & Eric, the homeowner.
The apartment is very clean, well equipped, secure, comfortable and spacious. The apartment doors and the vestibule are secure within this gate attended-community. Fantastic colorful flora & foliage surround the property. There is a soft manicured lawn at the edge of the patio that leads to a panoramic infinity pool, bookend thatched roof cabanas, and beyond are unlimited ocean views and scores of colorful kites at Sea. 150 meters east are a series of dining options, kite & surf schools as well as daily & nightly dining and cocktails, with restaurants illuminated by colorful lighting along the sand.
This particular ocean front apartment is within a beach village that rivals any all-inclusive resort, because the village itself is all-inclusive. The apartment complex is along the residential portion of the lengthy Cabarete' beach, with all of the domestic needs that travelers require along the main thoroughfare outside the gated-community: Pharmacies, ATMs, shoppes, local dining proprietors, and public transportation.
Sonja is very responsive, accessible, multi-lingual and conscientious. This home is tranquil and inspirational with quiet neighbors who are also very happy to be vacationing next door. The apartment and its tastefully furnished patio are situated directly in the center of the lawn, so one's view is unencumbered, absolutely picturesque, and provides a fantastic ocean surf experience 24-hours a day.
Had the chance to stay at possibly the best beach front condo in Cabarete for a group of friends or 2 families ( the condo can hold 8-10 people ) .
The vacation theme was to initiate our kids to surfing in the morning at the nearby spot of Encuentro and for the parents to go kitesurfing in the afternoon ( wind blows mostly after 1pm in the winter ) . I must say we could not imagine a better place for such surf/kitesurf program .
Encuentro was just perfect for our children to take their first waves ( plenty of surf school and great coaching program ) .
Same for Kitesurfing , the condo is positioned right where you can pump your kite and an very easy go to the reef for wave riding .
The owner Eric knows quiet a bit about kiteboarding and organized for us several downwinders with taxi pick up etc : a real kite VIP treatment .
On the condo side : just perfect , Sonja A++ guest service and with top internet for the group so we can all stay connected . We will be back for sure .
Great property conveniently located on the beach. Views from the patio are of the infinity pool and ocean below. Walk out the back door and enjoy the sun, take some kite surfing lessons, or walk down the beach to the many restaurants for lunch, dinner, or drinks in the evening. Don't forget to leave through the front door occasionally to see the main road with other options/activities as well. Very convenient location. Great beach and pool. Nice apartment with everything you could possibly need. Can't wait to go back. Walkable to so many things.
We stayed a full week in this beautiful apartment, with spectacular view on the pool and the beach!!!
Really fantastic! you can do everything you need walking distance : restaurants bars activities sports : Kite surfing, Surfing, Horse back riding...
We even did a great kite downwinder to Encuentro beach with the owner of the apartment Eric, cool and nice guy! Always available to give some good tips and help!
I would really recommend this place to all my friends!
Best vacation ever!
