AFFORDABLE OCEANFRONT VILLA WITH POOL

Cabrera House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

If you are a Jimmy Buffett fan you are certain to enjoy the unique nature of Seadog Inn. The site of this exclusive vacation rental offers the perfect combination of privacy, comfort and proximity to the town of Cabrera. The Seadog Inn is a truly tropical vacation rental offering its own private beach, unique swimming pool and spacious accommodations.

The Seadog is an airy 5 bedroom / 4 bathroom oceanfront vacation villa overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Seadog Inn faces mostly eastward to capture and allow you to enjoy the soothing trade winds and natural breezes. To supplement the winds, The Seadog has many ceiling and floor fans to keep you cool.

The outdoor bar area (The Bone Bar) rapidly becomes the gathering place at The Seadog Inn. The bar itself is framed with humpback whale bones collected from the Atlantic Ocean as they washed ashore. Multiple seating and lounging areas add to the comfort and create a perfect area for cocktails and reading.

Price posted is for the villa rental fee only. For a nominal additional charge we can offer either a complete meal plan or a modified plan. We encourage you to try the local restaurants, they are both fun to visit and enjoyable to try.

Dedicated golfers will surely enjoy The Seadog. The villa is located only a few miles (7 to be exact) from the famous Playa Grande Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. as his highest achievement in the Caribbean. Playa Grande offers ten holes overlooking the soaring cliffs and also provides exceptional vistas while offering challenging cross winds.

As an added bonus, starting in late January, the humpback whales are migrating to their mating grounds right in our backyard.

Drop me an email, it never hurts to inquire! Discover paradise, 'Jimmy Buffett' style at The SeaDog Inn!

A game of golf and a glass of wine at The SeaDog Inn's BoneBar, it doesn't get any better than that!

Chester Marr purchased this house in 2000

The friendly people, the tranquil location and the ocean breezes make Cabrera a perfect vacation spot

Peace and quiet, whales spouting and jumping in the ocean. Lunch while sitting in the pool and gazing at the ocean. A professional massage under a shady tree with an ocean breeze. Eating fresh seafood caught that day and thrown in the pan. Walking down to the port to watch the local fishermen bring in the daily catch. A good game of dominos while drinking an ice cold Presidente. Taking an afternoon nap to the sound of the ocean. Sitting around the Bone Bar and enjoying time with friends. Laying in the sun and reading a book. Walking down the stairs to the beach and collecting sea glass. Sitting out at night and looking at the stars you can almost reach out and touch. Listening to Jimmy Buffett while drinking a rum punch. A glass of wine at the BBQ grill, flipping steaks and cooking fresh veggies. Did I miss anything?

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! A MUST PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This villa was absolutely breath-taking! Right when we arrived looking at the pool overlooking the ocean was a scene in itself! There's cliffs on both sides to enhance the view even more and stairs going down to the ocean if you want a change from the pool. Although we traveled around and did activities and excursions throughout our stay, in all reality we could have just spent everyday at the villa and loved it! There's an amazing bone bar on the patio which is great to sit at with friends, drink, and enjoy everyone's company. At night there's lights outside on the patio to make the outside even better! The inside of the villa was very big and allowed multiple people to stay. We had five couples total that traveled and there was more than enough room for all of us! The kitchen was well equipped and each bedroom was absolutely big enough for two people to stay in. There's closets and plenty of storage space in each room as well for clothing, personal items, etc. While I had heard issues of security in Dominican Republic before traveling, I can honestly say I did not feel scared or fearful ONCE the entire trip. The villa is in a beautiful, safe area with lovely, kind locals who live in the town. The owner's of the villa are extremely welcoming, helpful, and reliable when it came to booking and for providing us with all of the information we needed for our stay. We stayed 9 days at the villa and I honestly could have stayed for a month! We definitely plan to visit DR again and this is absolutely where we are staying! What an amazing deal for the price, you'll never want to leave!

10 PPL- BIRTHDAY TRIP

  • 4 of 5
Our group of 10ppl (ages 25-34) went for 10 days and had an incredible stay at the Sea Dog Inn. The house mgr Natalia and her help Sandy, were amazing and helpful in keeping the place spotless without being in the way of guests and cooking delicious meals upon request. For the adventurous bunch the nearby attractions of 4wheeling, LakeDudu, beaches to explore.. breathtaking and memorable but definitely Rent A Car!!! For those looking for relaxation, you can spend all day everyday in the pool just enjoying the house and stunning view - it never gets old. Privacy and safety were important to us - both were great. Overall a fantastic escape from reality, true vacation if you are ready to get off the beaten path of the resort-tourist-feel.

NO STRESS RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
The Sea Dog inn is an ideal place. It has everything you could possibly want on vacation: its own private beach and bay to hear the waves, a private pool, a private bar, fully equipped house, lots of space to spread out, beautifully maintained grounds, and a staff so friendly and attentive they will knock your socks off! There was nothing we were left wanting at the house or during our stay. Felon was a great host and tour guide, showing us all of the popular beaches and local attractions. Maximo had coco de agua ready for us at the return of every trip to mix up some rum drinks at the bar. Natalia, Sandy and Myria tirelessly kept us fed and well taken care of, and helped us spot whales off of the point.
The town of Cabrera was the perfect location to land. It had great restaurants and bars, a good market and produce stands to provision, and very friendly locals. The town was smaller so we didn’t have as much traffic or loud music and noise as the larger cities, but we could easily drive to one if we needed more action.
It is definitely a place we plan to return to!

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing such a fantastic review on The SeaDog Inn and our staff. I'm happy you were able to site whales off our backyard while Maximo was preparing you coconuts! We all hope you come back soon for another Dominican getaway.

MOST RELAXING VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
The house was incredible. Large, open and comfortably furnished inside and out! The staff was friendly, efficient and very helpful in organizing outings, massages and translations when needed. They also cooked some wonderful meals for our group. The owner took the time to email us with some destinations to see and places to try that were extremely helpful and fun! The town was very safe and easy to drive around. The super market was well stocked and accepted our US dollars. All the restaurants we dined at had incredible food and very reasonably priced. We loved hanging out at the house, in the pool, at the bone bar just listening to the ocean and watching for whales. I would definitely recommend this location!

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
This place has everything a person needs to relax and unwind. It's laid back feel and casual atmosphere are just right. Its proximity to local attractions makes it an ideal place to unpack and venture out from. It's right off the main road but the only sounds you can hear are from the ocean. My only dissapointment was when I had to leave which was a sad moment. I have stayed at other locations in the DR and would recommend the Sea Dog without reservation.

TREATED LIKE ROYALTY

  • 5 of 5
We were treated like royalty from the time of inquiry, rental, arrival, extended stay and departure. Chester has been the BEST rental owner we have had the pleasure of working with (we rent 5 times yearly). I can't explain the ease we had with the rental. On arrival, the staff had a typical Dominican dinner waiting for us which was ABSOLUTELY delicious. Every detail was handled. We received an email with all of the must see and do while visiting. The home was very comfortable. The views were breathtaking. You can relax at the house all day soaking up the sun or be adventurous and explore! Best thing was having access to many locals to assist with touring. No matter where we went, the locals are friendly and quick to help you if needed. Finally, Chester was awesome when we were stranded for four extra days due to the wintery weather back in the states. We were able to stay without any hassles! Thank you again for your hospitality and wonderful staff!
