Review Submitted: January 6, 2010 Date of Stay: December 2009



The property is very well maintained, and ideal for independent travelers. I came to Villa Vecinos with my wife and children, and the owners went an extra mile to accommodate our needs. Lynda and Les provided us with all necessary info about the environment, and gave a lot of insider's tips on traveling around.



The place is serene and very relaxing, rooms are clean and spacious beyond expectations. We enjoyed many walks on the beach and around Cabarete (it takes only 20 minutes to get there on foot, or 5 min in a cab). The beach is virtually across the road, with very decent bar and restaurant nearby.



Since there are only 4 units in the villa, you hardly feel presence of other guests and can quietly relax at the big pool, which is very clean and refreshing.



The kitchen is well equipped and fully functional; groceries may be easily purchased in Cabarete and fruits (amazingly tasty!) from street vendors.



We would be happy to come there again, and recommend Vecinos to all our friends.

We are Les + Lynda - a Canadian expat baby-boomer couple - sharing our beachside condo resort home + experiences of meeting tourists from around the world on vacation or a romantic destination wedding. See how we followed our dream of Caribbean living, and how you can too.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

We bought this property because of its' exceptional location! At the east edge of world-renown-Cabarete, this tranquil acreage is minutes from the hustle of downtown and only 100 meters from the deserted golden sand beach stretching for seemingly endless miles. Your eye is drawn to the mature landscaping gracing the gardens, the mountain view inland past the lagoon, and the ocean out front.

Our unique location lets you enjoy peaceful tranquility, minutes from the busy downtown commerce and nightlife. The international airport at Puerto Plata (POP) is only 40 minutes west, and the DR's "Pebble Beach" style golf course at Playa Grande is an hour east. A dozen beautiful beaches are within an hour's drive, as well as Ocean World Water Park, Marina and Casino where you can swim with the dolphins. Samana's whale watching is a few hours east along the coast. Numerous ancient caves dot our area where you can explore and swim in crystal clear underground pools, under stalactites overhead which ring like chimes when "pinged".

Owner's Response: Eugene + Sonia + teenagers were great guests who are welcome to come back to stay with us anytime! They're well traveled, so very flexible when dealing with any challenges that can come up unexpectedly. It was great to see them enjoy our place, making themselves right at home, making good use of the pool and spoiling our pets with their affection!

They took full advantage of our proximity to the beach and often set off in the morning on family walks, returning before dark, tanned, sandy and happy - great to see them take advantage of our Cabarete area and all it has to offer, so close by.

They're great at maximizing their vacation time - by spending minimum time cleaning our easily maintained condo - and maximum time enjoying relaxing by the pool, reading for hours, and exploring our vicinity at length.

It was wonderful to see them bonding with our pets and treating them like their own. Our 2 dogs and 3 cats accepted them and made them feel right at home.......then checked out their door after they left, as if to say, "When are they coming back?"

When our land power went off and the back-up inverter ran out of battery power, we had to start up our generator. They were fine with the sound of it running, and glad to have electricity again. We so appreciate guests with that understanding attitude and they make our job so much easier.

They made the best of whatever weather came along - rain or shine - they carried on with their family outings and activities and had a great time regardless of a bit of rain.

With something to do for everyone, it was nice to see Dad take the kids out to give Mom some "me-time" relaxing by the pool or whiling away the hours with a book.

All in all, they were a real joy to have as guests, and we'd love to see them come back to stay with us anytime !

RELAXING AND BEAUTIFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our 2 week family vacation was a great at Vecinos! Son (21) daughter (16) and I had a wonderful time catching a gua-gua (20 pesos each) into Cabarete to shop and eat dinner at one of the many restaurants on the beach. The ocean was full of wind and kite surfers at Cabarete beach! We never needed a car because transportation was always available. The first week we just relaxed, swam at the pool, and walked across the street to the beach and lived on "Dominican-time". The second week we took a day trip to Santa Domingo and a jeep safari to the mountains of Puerto Plata and the 27 falls. There is so much to do - if you want to - and Vecinos is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the beauty from the back porch. And Les is quite the singer - we enjoyed hearing him sing at some of the local places! My kids and I loved the cats, dogs, and birds on the compound and feel like we have found another home - just a more exotic one, and Lynda and Les could not have been more helpful or better hosts.

I have stayed at Vecinos 3 times, my last time was on June 2013, As usual, outstanding service, great accommodations and very warm hosting services provided by a wonderful man.

Pool was amazing, beds are great, huge area to be with your friends and very close to the bars and resturants in cabarete.

Would come again for sure!

See you again in cabarete in the future!

BEWARE.BEWARE.BEWARE

  • 1 of 5
Just returned from Cabaret.We unfortunately booked three weeks at Vecinos based on pictures shown on this site and after e-mailing back and forth with the owners.The facility is nothing like the pictures,it is run down,dirty and in need of major upgrading and cleaning.The rooms are in poor shape with cupboards askew,drapes and curtains that don't open or close properly,furnature so dirty that we wouldn't sit on it without putting a cover on first.The yard is in disrepair,the pool is dirty and you could not read the writing on the bottom.The pool furniture is like the room furniture,not something that you would be willing to sit without a cover. The location is poor,to far from Cabarate to walk and to and in convienent to take the local taxis especially at night.We tried to get our deposit back as we could not stay there,no luck.the owner wanted the rest of the payment as soon as we arrived because I'm sure not many people stay after seeing the place.We lost our deposit and our respect for the owner.As we found out there are lots of nice places to stay in Cabarate that are cheaper,cleaner and closer to town.Our short (2 days) stay at Vecinos was the only stain on an otherwise great holiday in Cabarate.I would not recommend that anyone stay at this place.

Owner's Response: We welcome feedback from all our guests - giving us the opportunity to improve in our weak areas, as well as hearing the positive aspects.
Over 80 % of our guests have cash in hand + pay on arrival, when they get their keys, as agreed upon in our contract. Some don’t travel with cash + need to go to an ATM + pay their balance the following day, which is no problem.
When I reminded Garry on the second day that he hadn’t paid, he said that he had paid half + would pay the second half after 10 days . I said that wasn’t our agreement + that no resort on the planet does it that way.
The following morning he came out with a litany of problems starting with the vehicle (2000 Pathfinder) I had used for their complimentary airport pick-up wasn’t clean + also that their rooms were filthy but that they would “put up with” our place for 10 days + then find a different condo.
We're a mile from the center of Cabarete. In my opinion, they wanted to be in town, closer to the touristy action. Personal preference, no problem.
After denigrating our facility + then saying he would “put up with “ it for 10 days, I simply said he had a decision to make. Either pay the remaining balance as agreed upon or leave.
After he left I asked 2 ladies to inspect the rooms with me. There WAS a broken cupboard hinge that needed replacing, the room mirrors + bathroom chrome could have been more polished, + one of the balcony curtains didn’t close smoothly.
The only other thing missing, as one lady said, were the chocolates on the pillows.
Dealing with the public for many years I've learned you can’t control what people do or make all the people happy all the time. We do however get a 5 of 5 approval rating from over 90% of our guests!
Many of our return guests do so because of our ideal location - away from the noises, while conveniently close to Cabarete.
We are 5 minutes from everything downtown [motoconch or public transportation is about 50 cents per person -25 pesos]
Our weekly Sat Market shoppers + vendors compliment us on our gorgeous gardens, how they are maintained , + generally how peaceful + relaxing our place is.
I’m glad Garry enjoyed the remainder of his stay in Cabarete as I feel it's a unique town, providing vacationers with a wonderful insight into our local culture!
I’m always disappointed when there is an unhappy client, + we strive to correct any areas of our rental business that need improvements. Thx for your help in that regard, Garry.

Owner's Response: This is our third year of hosting Jean + Sam's humanitarian group, and it gets better every year. It's so refreshing to see the next generation's empathy and enthusiasm in pursuing their humanitarian work with the local underprivileged kids.

Our accommodations are ideally located for a base of operations like theirs, both for getting to their voluntary jobs easily, and we're also close to shopping options and our gorgeous beach for catching rays on their time off.

They thoroughly enjoyed time in our beautiful pool - with lots of room for all 40 guests.

They dined in style in our elegant dining room, surrounded by elegant white columns, on buffet-style meals prepared in our commercial-sized kitchen.

Our condos and 3-bedroom suite in the house are ideal for group accommodations, as everyone can stay on site and be together for meetings and meals.
With 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms in total, we can easily accommodate groups from 24 - 36 for sleeping and even greater numbers for meals.

Also, being located on the main road, Calle Principal, it's easy to get around by the numerous economical public transport options that pass by us every few minutes.

We look forward to hosting them again next year, and would also like to host more groups like theirs as we find it so rewarding :)

We wish them all the best in their year of fund raising efforts and anticipate their return next year.
