My husband and I stayed in this villa in October 2017.
It is an older home with colonial charm.
For the most part, it was functional.
Private backyard with swimming pool and dining area. Quiet and relaxing.
Large bathrooms and ac in bedrooms.
Property very secure, 24hr guards around gated community.
Casa Linda provides free daily shuttle from 10am to 6:30pm to cabarete beach, Sosua Beach and downtown Sosua.
Casa Linda staff very professional, helpful and polite.
Wifi is intermittent. If staying here, know that you will need to reboot the internet daily.
Extras required- when we contacted the property manager, we were informed that we need to supply our own toilet paper and garbage bags and dish soap. Make sure you include this on your shopping list. (For those that came after us....your welcome..... we left stock for you in the bathroom ).
Couldn’t find dish cloths or dish towels or oven mitts....
Phone and cable did not work at any time while we were there. We went to front gate to request taxi services.
A number of minor maintenance issues-common with older houses- paint scuffs and pealing paint, kitchen tap needs to be tightened, doors need adjustment to keep from dragging, shower head in one of the bathrooms falls off under water pressure, etc.....Contacted owner regarding these issues, and repairs were being attended to the day we checked out.
This is a solid, beautiful vacation home with all the amenities you will ever need.
The villa is situated inside a quiet gated community with 24 hour security patrol.
The entire home is an open concept with two air-conditioned bedrooms upstairs and one air-conditioned bedroom downstairs.Each substantially sized bedrooms have their own ensuite bathrooms The villa itself is within a short driving distance of all local necessities such as beaches,grocery stores, hospitals and restaurants. We made great use of the backyard facilities. The pool eliminated the need to travel to the beach, the BBQ kept us out of the kitchen and the internet/wifi made outside entertainment a breeze. Robert and Stephan were only a phone call away. They were even generous to wait for us past 7 pm.check-in. (We told them to expect us at 4pm.} Great Villa with excellent amenities, Great Hosts, Great Location = Great Vacation. This Vacation Rental is on my Keeper List. Well Done!
The villa need to be refurnished and painted. It has a beautiful patio but the inside need to be taken care. It also need to be cleaned better before the guests arrive. The beach is 5 minutes away from the property by car. There is a great supermarket on the main road called Playero you will find all type of food over there. The backyard it is very relaxing. We spent a lot of time at the pool. If you go to Sosua beach which is one of the most beautiful I seen in the world look for Lobo . He will take care of you. He will not only rent you a beach chair he will take care of everything and give you great service.
This was just what my friend's who live in the DR and I needed, The AC in the bedrooms, TV with cable and lovely backyard with pool hit the spot. We easily drove to Sosua, Cabarete and Playa Grande from this location. I look forward to returning!
My family and i stayed at this villa for a weekend and it was by far the best private villa i've been to. Everything was clean and organized. All air conditioners worked great. This villa is in a residencial area, we felt very secure since there was also security guards walking around the area. The location is perfect Since its in between sosua and cabarete. I look forward to booking this villa Again in the near future.
The villa was very clean kept and not far from the front gate, I think with some more upgrades in the villa it would be excellent. But overall we really enjoyed our stay at the villa and would definitely use it again, the price is very reasonable.
