LUXURIES CARIBBEAN VILLA IN PERFECT LOCATION (SOSUA-CABARETE)

Cabarete Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Located in the private community of Seahorse Ranch

The community is five minutes from the renowned beach of Sosua (and the city with its fine shops and restaurants), 5 minutes to the new Jack Tar casino, 10 minutes to the hottest new destination in the Caribbean, Cabarete (fabled wind and kite surfing capita), 20 minutes to the famous golf course and resorts of Playa Dorado and 25 minutes to the historical city of Puerta Plata with it five mile ocean front boardwalk. This is the perfect location.

This intimate gated (sleep with your doors open) community was designed by the award-winning architects of Edward Durrell Stone Associates for luxury living that is private, quiet and independent.

Sea Horse Ranch was developed with a master plan that highlights and preserves the natural environment ~ over 250 tropical acres of exhilarating foliage and tree lined paths, A resort within a private community. Included inside the community is a tennis club, riding stables, and jogging and walking paths along side the ocean and tropical vegetation. Sea Horse Ranch is truly one of the finest resorts in all the Caribbean

The Villa

The 6,200 sq foot villa is one of the most luxuries and well-appointed villas at SeaHorse Ranch. I built it a few years ago with the concept of an open design that emphasized privacy with contemporary comfort. Perfectly located and only a few steps to the ocean-front restaurant, beach club, the tropical walk ways, beach and free forming swimming pools that make SeaHorse Ranch so special and romantic.

The Caribbean villa has beautifully blends tropical living with clean modern architectural lines.

The large main room and terrace is where guests enjoy breezy cross ventilation and casual dinners from the gourmet Italian kitchen. The large terrace features tropical lounge furnishings for when guests retire from the refreshing lap pool. The cinema room features a large screen projector television with full library and around sound audio.

The layout is designed for rental privacy with two master bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs, all with bathrooms en suite, cedar closets, full a/c and televisions.

Tropical art, a state of the art Italian kitchen, modern Mediterranean inspired design and an excellent location just a couple minutes walking to the Beach Club make this villa a fabulous Caribbean rental.

MOST INCREDIBLE PROPERTY IN DR!

  • 5 of 5
I've vacationed in the DR before and rented other villas/condos before.

Bruce's villa is clearly the most exceptional rental property within the Sea Horse Ranch. Many of the villas are either decorated with outdated furnishings or are over-priced for what you get.

Bruce, the actual villa owner, was incredibly easy to work with and extremely understanding when a family emergency threatened our vacation. He was so kind to offer a solution in case we couldn't make it down on the intended date.

The house is equipped with more than your run-of-the-mill vacation house. Projection screen tv complete with 100 current DVD titles. Super comfortable lounge areas - and multiple areas to hang out. This is a great house for a small group. The layout and decor is uber comfortable and completely luxurious. Being a New Yorker accustomed to high standards, I can't think of one disappointing aspect of the property.

I not only highly recommend the property but the villa owner, Bruce, is just "good people".

WONDERFUL PLACE FOR A HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We could not have picked a more beautiful place than SeaHorse Ranch Villa #84. We were there for 5 weeks with friends & family. Everybody loved the house with its beautiful swimming pool, fabulous help (we never wanted for anything) & amazing security. If you horseback ride (the horses are wonderful), play tennis or just want to go for long walks Sea Horse is the place! The pictures of this villa do not do it justice. I recommend Sea Horse Ranch & Villa 84 highly. I had one of the most delightful holidays ever.

Owner's Response: You know the maids cried when you left, you also were the best! SeaHorse Ranch is probably the best kept secret (family owned) in the Caribbean, now you know why.

Hope to see you next year.

BEYOND MY WILDEST EXPECTATIONS!!

  • 5 of 5
So, we all take a chance when we book online and look at the pictures provided by the Owner and we just hope that when we arrive the place rented really does look like the pictures ~ Well, in this case, RELAX ~ the pictures do not do the villa justice ~ the villa is even better in person then online and I am a very picky traveler! From the moment you enter through the open front door into the breeze from the patio you feel immediately like all your stress has vanished. We were warmly greeted by Ingrid our "maid" and a platter of fresh fruits and cold drinks. If your active you will love the pool; each morning I got up and swam laps and then sat down to a nicely prepared breakfast by Ingrid; by the time we made our way back upstairs to the master suite the room had not only been cleaned, but our laundry already done and folded for us! Yes, staying in this house is a definitely a treat and you are feel like royalty.
Seahorse Ranch is a one of a kind neighborhood it has a beautiful tennis center with clay courts (I highly recommend Eduardo if you would like to take a lesson) a first class equestrian facility and a wonderful restaurant and free form pool looking right over the ocean. The security and the service provided by the employees in the neighborhood and villa is absolutely amazing ~ there were times that I felt like our needs were anticipated before we even realized what we wanted!
My husband wanted to visit the DR as he is a big kitesurfer ~ Cabarete was only a short drive away and several afternoons they were able to kite down the beach right back to Seahorse Ranch!
If your looking for a one of a kind experience, relaxation and a great place to stay with family, friends, or to celebrate a milestone ~ look not further as Villa 84 is a dream come true!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lisa,

I really appreciate your kind words. It was a pleasure to actually meet a client and get first hand feed-back. You did teach me something, you can kite board right from SeaHorse Ranch, I never knew that -- Im a tennis player as you know.

Maids at SeaHorse Ranch are hand picked and are given a rigorous training course before being approved for a villa, Im lucky and got the best in Ingrid.

Its been a busy simmer at the villa and Ive learned a lot from client feedback and I try and improve from every comment. I think the secret is starting to get out -- SeaHorse Ranch -- www.sea-horse-ranch.com -- is one of the best hidden gems in the Caribbean.

See you next year ....

EXCELLENT PROPERTY IN WONDERFUL SEAHORSE RANCH

  • 5 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay at this Vila - the Seahorse Ranch gated community was a real surprise. This is the nicest community on the North Dominican coast. The security at this community is so good you don't bother to even close the doors 24/7! Here's a few highlights:

Home is as good or better than the photos, taken great care by the housekeeper Ingrid. Nice open-style, contemporary Island living home. Ingrid cooked breakfast and Dominican lunches for our family and took care of us. Wonderful large pool in a beautifully landscaped setting.

Seahorse Ranch has a great restaurant, the Beach Club, with a warm ambiance that overlooks the ocean. Also enjoyed a couple of Horseback rides that take you along the beach and waterfront jungle nearby.

Great location, between Sosua and Cabarete, so you have lots of choices in beaches, watersports, shopping and dining in either direction.

We've been all over the Carribean, and found this to be one of our "new favorites"!

The owner Bruce will take care of you - don't hesitate to bring your friends and family to this home and community!

MORE THAN EXPECTED ...

  • 5 of 5
Dec 15-21, 2011


I took the family (two families, 4 kids) on a pre X-mas surfing (kite boarding) vacation to Cabarete but decided against an apartment (to crowded) and settled upon a villa in SeaHorse Ranch for more privacy and room.

First, SeaHorse Ranch was impressive -- 100 of acres of natural walkways, pools, riding stable, tennis club and tranquility, best part we were in walking distance of the restaurant. 10 minutes to Cabarete, 5 minutes to Sosua, 10 minutes to the airport and 20 minutes to a decent golf course (but rain hindered that).

The villa was just as it pictured and described. We arrived and keys were awaiting us and Ingrid (the maid) was also waiting for our arrival (as the cat, more on this later). to be honest more than we expected. When you walk in its WOW.

The boys (men) spend the day surfing and the girls shopping in Sosua (they took a taxi, we kept the car) -- a good balance of two totally different areas.

The good:

More than expected and we will come back

Fun and extras:

Watching the cat dodging dive bombing birds every morning (seems there is a nest in the palm tree over the pool), kids clapped every time the cat escaped. We also asked for a second maid for cooking (we like to all eat together at home) and got a young Haitian lady who was superb and even helped my daughter with her French lessons -- Thanks Bruce!

So So: Weather turned bad and boy can it rain and rain and rain. Thank god for the cinema room and all those DVD! Last two day it cleared up :-(

Bad: No real beach in SeaHorse, you do need a car (gate to villa is a few miles) and office extras a little outrageous -- hint don't ask for a chief ($60.00 a night), just a glorified maid with a big white hat, just get a extra maid (their overnight nanny rate was $75.00 and the maid just a tip). Flying into the local airport (pop) was expensive, next time we will use Santiago (90 minutes away) and a third less. With a big family it can really add up fast.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice words. Few people realize that many of the workers here are Haitians and they have a wonderful culture and attitude. Having a second maid available for clients has become very popular (be it for a nanny, cooking or education) that I'm offering it on request (need 30 day notice) "au gratis" for renters. They are multi language (French, Spanish and Creole) and if you get a chance ask to hear some of their music, I love the beats and melodies :-).

Sorry about the bad weather, in the Caribbean you just never know ....
