On a mile long stretch of secluded white sand beach between Sosua and Cabarete is Hideaway Beach Resort. Our condo offers Carribean atmosphere with all the comforts of home (cool AC, 2 beds 2 baths,kitchen) in a quiet serene setting only 15 minutes from all the action of Cabarete.
Wake to the sound of the waves, take your coffee on your patio or out on the lawn watching the early morning surfers. You may not see anyone else on the beach all day, save for a local fisherman or horseback rider galloping through the surf. Snorkel or take a surf lesson only yards away. Maybe you just want to sun by the pool or stretch out with a book. Nothing will disturb you.
Chef Arsenio can prepare you breakfast, lunch or dinner at the onsite restaurant or a cool drink poolside. If you tire of the tranquillity head into Cabarete or Sosua for dining, nightlife or shopping. A number of tours are also available from town Mountain biking, fishing, waterfalls or white water rafting just to name a few..
Resort: This is the place for the get away from it all vacation. It is completely private and usually only has a few guests at a time. The service is really special you will be well cared for and attended to. The security of the property is excellent.
The property is made up of one building of 15 privately owned condos all 2 bedrooms. In front of that building is the beautiful pool and adjacent jacuzzi. In front of that is the onsite restaurant with a world class Chef. The green lawn then stretches to the bluff overlooking the ocean. All units have balcony or patio with an ocean view.
Also part of the small resort are 6 large single family homes (some for rent by the owners) well spaced and private. The gardens and grounds are beautifully maintained.
The staff is helpful and attentive, yet literally unseen if not needed.
Beach: The beach is full of natural beauty. There is good 'real' surf to the right where the sand is hard packed and darker. Or walk to the left for soft white sands and wading. A little further is a practically on shore reef for exploring or snorkling. It is by far the most versatile and beautiful natural beach we have found in the Dominican, hence part of the reason we decided to make this our personal paradise. There is a surf shack stuck in the woods to the right that has become a hotspot for surfers. (you'll wonder how they found it!) The instructors are personable and speak a number of different languages. Walk a few hundred yards past the surf shack to a tiny restaurant with fresh carribean lobster and cold Presidentes as well as delicious frozen drinks made with fresh fruit and local rum. Just to tide you over for the walk back to Hideaway resort for a nap by the pool !!!
Don't forget that Kite Beach in Cabarete is the wind and kite surfing capitol of the world. give it a try !
Dining & Tourism: You have a full kitchen so you can certainly eat in. There is a large grocery store in Sosua or smaller ones in Cabarete (both 15-20 minutes by car) However Chef Arsenio makes killer surf and turf as well as several other great French and Carribean dishes. One night he brought us appetizers on the beach and a perfectly chilled bottle of wine while we watched the sunset.
Head into Cabarete and the choices are bountiful. from an Irish Pub to excellent Italian and French Cusine all on the beach in a surprisingly upscale environment. The town is mainly made up of American expats and people of all ages from all over Europe.
