From the moment we arrived at Cabarete we knew we made the right decision for our family vacation. 4 adults and 4 children spent a week in this perfectly maintained, spacious home with picture perfect views and amenities. Everything was exactly as advertised and more. Our transfer from the airport was smooth and we were able to stop at the grocery store before arriving to get a few key essentials. We were off the plane and enjoying a cold drink on the beach within an hour and a half. The beach feels like a private oasis with open sand as far as the eye can see.
We hired a chef for 3 of the 7 days we were there and walked into Cabarete and Kite Beach on the other days for our meals. Both were wonderful experiences and we were happy with our decision to split it up. Our chef arrived at 7:30 every morning and quietly made us a feast for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And cleaned up after every meal. We highly recommend Chef Isidora! Cabarete also has great bars and restaurants all within a 15 minute stroll down the beach that easily accommodates both adult and kid's palates.
Sosua was a great day trip to snorkel and hang at the beach but when the winds didn't pick up in the afternoon we found ourselves missing our home base of Baywatch and quickly headed back to catch the Kite Surfers. I have never had a more entertaining time sitting at beach than I did here.
Monkey Jungle was also a fun morning trip for the kids. Takes about 35 minutes to get there from Baywatch. They have both zip-lining over the jungle canopy and a brief tour of monkey jungle where you are able to hold and feed dozens of monkeys. Kids are still talking about it.
Overall, it was truly a perfect vacation. We booked in August and from that moment on Geoff, the owner, and his team take care of your every question, concern and request. We will be back in the future!
Our group of 3 couples (early 40's), were looking for the ultimate location to unwind and have fun. We found that and more at Baywatch!
Upon arrival we discovered that the house, surrounding area, and amenities were as listed. The grounds and the house are very well kept. The cleaner came every day, and some days we just asked for clean towels and sent her on her way. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, which was nice. And the property is large enough that there were many spots you could get away if you wanted alone time.
We were a 10min, inexpensive, cab ride to get groceries. We only needed to call Jose and he would promptly pick us up, wait for us, then drive us back to the house. Pretty much anything you want for groceries can be found. We shopped at Janet's, which has good selection with prices I would compare to CDN grocery costs.
We spent some time walking the beach and watching the amazing kites. There are also restaurants, shops and bars down the beach, which is about a 15min walk. Lots to choose from and great food/music.
The customer service provided by the property team was fantastic. Extremely friendly and quick to respond.
We would recommend this property to others without hesitation. You will not be disappointed!
We've been coming to this house for several years now and have never been disappointed. The view and access to the beach is wonderful. The house is well-designed to accomodate a variety of guests. The housekeeper is lovely and so accomodating -- if anything is wrong, she takes care of it right away. The grounds are beautiful. The kitchen is decently equipped for those few nights we don't walk into town for dinner. The Cabarete Coffee restaurant is just a few minutes walk and they have great food and amazing coffee. Everyone in my family has a favorite activity -- my husband likes to take long swims in the ocean and jog on the beach then nap on a sun chair. My teenage daughters bounce between the beach and pool and sunchairs, sometimes sunbathing on the roof. I prefer quick swims and then reading in the little gazebo, watching the kiteboarders. It really is a wonderful place!

This was the fifth time my friends and I rented the Baywatch house in Caberete. Not only is it one of the best locations on the beach, they have also continued to impeccably maintain the property and add some new appointments like a beautiful patio dining room table set.
The staff continues to be friendly, professional and reliable. We will be returning in 2016.
