The communication with them was absolutely perfect, they answered all my questions and got back to me very quickly. The place is very comfortable, very homie and just my experience there was absolutely perfect. Les's Cinnabuns are delicious, you deffinitely need to try them for breakfast.

Glad you guys found us for your New Years Eve Party......it always makes it more fun for me when there is a group of younger party people around and I learned a lot more about the Peace Corp. and also what you guys do for the Dominican People....very commendable indeed. I know I don't like cold showers and could appreciate your joy in having hot water with lots of pressure....aaaahhhh...
As we live on the other side of the house it's almost like having family visiting and I always invite people to make themselves at home and borrow and use whatever you need from our kitchen [over the years, because of the Saturday Market, I seemed to have collected every pot, pan, knick knack , and gadget you could possibly need]....
Our next humanitarian group from Canada will be sleeping 23 teenage girls in the same 3 rooms....should be a blast....
Again, it was a pleasure meeting all of you and hope to see more Peace Corp. people next year....Hex, Vida,Bits, Foxy and Cinco d'mio say hi...

Humberto and family were great guests and came back for another night a few days after their first stay.

We were happy to see them enjoy the charcoal BBQ and pool - where the whole family laughed + played for hours.

We want them to know they're more than welcome to come back and stay with us again anytime, and look forward to them coming back next time :)
Wishing them all the best, Les + Lynda

We were so happy Sarah and friends found our vacation rental online and chose it for their "respite getaway" in Cabarete.
It was wonderful to hear about their humanitarian work (teaching Dominican women skills to earn their own livings) and be able to offer them a break from the rustic village living with a "taste of home".

They said how much they appreciated having unlimited hot water again.They'd come directly from the campo - where a rainy spell had resulted in very muddy conditions, so they'd been unable to do their laundry there.
They really appreciated the use of our common clothes washer and dryer - as well as the landscaped gardens and clean concrete pathways - where it all stays clean, and you can walk in the rain without getting muddy.

Two girls were having birthdays, so Sarah baked a birthday cake to celebrate and left some for us to enjoy - yummm! thx for sharing that tasty treat :)

We really enjoyed watching them have fun in the pool and shopping trips to town. It's always such a joy to have guests who appreciate our place and maximize their time with us - rain or shine.

We applaud their hard work, and welcome them to return and stay with us again anytime - and all their friends too!
We wish them all the best and look forward to hosting them again on a future vacation - all the best! Les + Lynda + pets :)

Stephan was a wonderful guest who stayed with us for several months and didn't let his disability slow him down too much.

He hired a local helper who pushed him across the street to watch the evening sunsets over the ocean.

He also pushed him to town along the front street to take advantage of all the conveniences available there.

It was wonderful to hear him tell us how healing he found the "green light" filtering through the lush tropical foliage.
He spent happy hours floating in the pool and working on regaining his strength to walk again.

We were happy to learn that the condo works well for a wheelchair guest, and see how well he was able to get around.

We appreciate his offer to email future wheelchair guests and share his experiences here with them to help them decide whether our place is a good fit for their needs.

We wish him all the best and welcome him to return again anytime!
Looking forward to having you back again on a future stay, Stephan - take care.....Les + Lynda

“One vacation never to forget”
Reviewed 25 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Thank you Les and Lynda for the wonderful time we had at Vecinos. We loved the peaceful, relaxed environment, the flora and fauna. We had a great apartment with plenty of space for the five of us. We all enjoyed being outside and enjoyed the pool for hours. It felt like we had a private pool since we were practically the only ones using it during the day. Where can you find a pool for yourself and no difficulties finding a lounge chair either? We should not forget to mention how awesome it was being able to pick fruit from your trees and enjoying fresh local fruits when we wanted. Les, thank you also for the exciting adventures you took us on. The children still talk about riding on the jeep with the wind going through their hair. We definitely recommend Vecinos to anyone interested in a peaceful and quiet environment and will return.

Owner Response: The best part of running Vecinos is the great variety of people we meet + your family was especially fun. I remember you arrived right in the middle of Saturday Market but made yourselves at home right away. Thanks to lax driving rules, you can still put 4 or 5 people in the back of a jeep + drive down the highway while standing in the back. My tours are definitely not touristy. It's great to see an adventurous family that enjoys bouncing down some potholed secondary roads to find an out of the way, true Dominican bar, that just happens to have a small stream running next to it where you can climb the muddy banks + drop 10 feet into the river......I think the biggest kid in the water was your husband...showing your sons how to flail their legs in a water fight ...something I'd never seen but he used to do it growing up in the DR. I'm not sure how impressed your kids were when the locals started cooking an enormous cauldron of sancocho [Excellent Dominican soup]...+ they saw several chickens which had just been relieved of their heads..you just don't get see that in New York...haha.. Living in Cabarete, Lynda + I don't get to see much of OUR grandkids, so it's a treat for us to hear kids [+ adults] splashing, laughing, + playing in the pool. As we only rent 4 condos, even if we're full, our pool feels like your own. Since you were here I've completed the second water feature which is a cascading 20' waterfall behind the pool which goes well with the three pools connected by the babbling brook we added last year. Glad you enjoyed the bananas, guavas, + chinola that were ready, as well as the coconuts that Sammy picked + opened for you...there's nothing like fresh coconut water right off the tree. You did miss avocado season, which began this week + it's "raining" aquacates so there'll be lots of guacamole for awhile..... I'm sure all the pets miss you too. I'm always surprised how many people seem to bond with the cats + 2 dogs...(actually 3 now) as we found a 6 wk old starving perrita that someone must have thrown into our yard a week back. Now we have Vida, Muerte, + Bitsi [like ITBIS]...translation - Life, Death, + Taxes! I still haven't found where the naked neck chicken is laying her eggs but I'm sure we'll see a clutch of them come out shortly. Several pairs of lovebirds continue to sit on eggs but so far there are no new babies. Thanks again for the excellent review . Pleasure to meet you and your family - come back + see us again, anytime.

Mike + Claire were great guests and are welcome back anytime! We enjoyed hosting their stay with us and see them enjoying their time here.

They are wonderful to meet and really entertaining with their music and numerous anecdotes. We enjoyed meeting such genuine, warm and wonderful people !

It turned out that they purchased some property in our area, so we also look forward to having them in our community.
