Gorgeous, brand new (2010) masterfully crafted thatched roof compound on the Dominican Republic's rugged North Shore! 2 1/3 lush, rolling tropical acres on a 50' cliff overlooking the mighty Atlantic surf! Panoramic views! Balinese inspired layout with separate pavilions to live and sleep, each open to the ocean with dramatic views. Very private grounds with dozens of mature royal palms, coconut palms, avocado trees, mango trees, almond trees, and acres of rolling green grass dotted with bougainvillea and the like. A jungle paradise!
One enters the central pavilion through a centuries old antique Indian carved door, dramatically introducing the view of the infinity edged pool and a full panorama of the Atlantic beyond. The 'great room' has a well equipped kitchen, a hand carved oak dining table seating 16, and an incredibly comfortable lounge area with room enough for everyone! The entire wall of doors, 9 feet tall and custom made by master craftsmen from Santo Domingo, opens completely up to the yard, pool and ocean. Laze about on the terrace, pick a hammock, or sun yourself bronze...this house is heaven for relaxation!
A master suite to die for. Perched high among the palms, this double pavilion suite is exotic, wonderful, and completely open to the ocean! Even the bath! With breathtaking ocean views, shower al fresco in the morning, with nothing but you, the colorful fauna and the big blue sea! Be lulled to sleep at night by the sound of the surf and the cool, constant breeze.
The guest pavilion is comprised of two generous bedrooms, one a king and the other having two full (double) beds. Each has their own terrace and bath, and both have stunning views of the ocean and Cabo Frances beyond! Total privacy between all three pavilions make this an ideal set up for 2 families with kids, 3 couples, or just one large, extended family.
Minutes away from the famous (National Geographic) Playa Grande beach, a 3 mile stretch of sand, surf and seafood (caught hourly, grilled fresh, and brought to your beachside table...all for a few bucks)! Also, a minute further down the road, is the world's best kept golf secret. Playa Grande Campo de Golf is known to those in the know as the 'Pebble Beach' of the Caribbean. With 14 of 18 holes set upon dramatic 80' cliffs right on the ocean and surrounded by the lush green mountainside, it is a setting to behold and a challenge you won't soon forget.
This is a home designed for ease and comfort, with the amenities, but without the pretense. Its décor is simple, yet crisp, clean and organic. Help yourselves to the vegetable garden, read a book or two, and relax! Buy your fresh eggs everyday from Jonny’s chickens up the road. If the warmth and beauty of the Caribbean and its people are for you, but the pretense and expense are not....come to Cabrera!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Jenn n' Skip,
There is only one word that can adequately describe my stay at the Cabrera Tiki -- sublime! Something as simple as entering the front door is nothing less than a change of universe. It's not just the etherial dramatic, drop-dead clifftop oceanfront vistas, nor the endless 24/7 wave concert that overpowered me, but the way this home annuls the line between indoors and outdoors, and the implausible combination of tropical rusticity with innovative architectural elegance; and all fused together with the most unique and eclectic collection of artworks and artisanal objects and inventions imaginable. The master suite is so romantic, even if you're alone, you'll probably fall in love with yourself again -:).
On the practical level, the staff of five was not only extremely helpful and accommodating, but also with such a light footprint that they were invisible except when we needed them. It was as though their pride came from pleasing us -- and what more could we ask, aside from half an hour of powerful sun with gentle rain at the same time by day, and calm breezy evenings identifying constellations with an nonstop lightning show on the ocean horizon.
There were plenty of special activities in the neighborhood.... many magical places to swim, the Caribbean's most amazing golf course, walks to and through rural mountain villages with everyone smiling and waving as you walk by .... but really, after a few days of enjoying the surroundings, we didn't even want to leave "home".
If you want a normal vacation house, this is probably not your spot. But if you prefer the experience of a place that meshes the ephemeral with the eternal, well, we've never been anywhere as magical as the Cabrera Tiki.
