Really lovely house, right on the beach, secluded location, 3 other houses on the property, the gardens all around the house are well maintained, the pool and pool area are also well maintained - pool chlorine level was low - I prefer a saline pool so was wary of a chlorine pool and had no problem swimming in this pool , each bedroom with it's own bath, nice living room area and great kitchen. At night the sound of the surf is right there, the rain on the roof - if it rains - is magical.
If you are looking for a totally secluded get away to write a book, decompress, reconnect with the missed sleep/a book you want to read/sun/sand/surf, this was a lovely getaway for us. The water is a lovely blue/light green and bathtub warm. The body surfing was great. If you plan to come here staying at the pool on the property is the best way to go; there are not beach chairs if you want to stay at the beach all day.
If you want to go away from the house and go to a restaurant or coffee shop this is not that place, but you can rent boats and guides to take you to these places.
We opted to have a chef prepare local cuisine, and it is well worth it, while we were there the locals who fish from the beach area/surrounding waters showed us a lobster and inquired if we wanted to purchase it, not being spanish speakers I said "Pasquala" our chef's name, and the following evening that lobster was on the BBQ for us.
The internet is intermittent, so be prepared to not stress over it.
There are 2 international airports, we were advised to come into Santa Domingo - its a 3 + hour drive to the house. The roads in DR are great. The final driveway down to the house is not paved so is a 20 minute drive. Renting a car worked just fine, we did a combination of renting a car for some of us and taking the car transport recommended by the owner for others ($210 1 way for up to 12 passengers)
The owner, Vincent, is very responsive. The staff at the house are interested in making sure your stay is as you would expect, they do not speak any other language than
Spanish, so we did spend sometime with Google translate.
Enjoy this lovely slice of paradise
