Rotten paradise

The house met us with a specific frowsy smell peculiar to houses in decline that had stand closed for many months. That disgusting smell was in all closets full of staled linen. Pillows stank like dirty vagabond’s cloth. The kitchen was deteriorated with all kitchenware covered with dust. We had to hire a local woman to clean the entire house. Note, at our own expense; the owners had not bothered to make the property ready. It took us several days, fully paid days of our vacation, to make the house more or less suitable for living.
Being persuaded by the owner that there were fresh fish and fruits sold weekly by the house, we did not rent a car on our arrival to Santo Domingo. To our disappointment, when we asked a local manager about weekly fish and fruits, he got surprised, apparently never heard of this option, and offered to take us to Las Terrenas 10 km away by his moped. Renting a car in Las Terrenas is at least 30-40% more expensive than in Santo Domingo. An alternative was to go shopping by taxi, which cost 40-60 USD.
Located at the second line from the beach, the property is surrounded by abandoned grounds run wild, all for sale. Further out in this line are haitian slums, horse stables, hencoops and other household facilities of the mentions located in the first line to the beach. Nobody else is living in the second line. The sea breeze and even stronger winds barely reach there; that is why mosquitoes all day around and high humidity even on sunny days.
Ok, mosquitoes could be argued to be a part of an ‘untouched environment’, as advertised by the owner, and could be expected. What is considered a part of a spoiled environment and what we did not expect were RATS. We spotted them by the end of our first week. Rats lived in a “kiosk” on the ground and partied on the terrace of the main house every night while we locked ourselves in the house. The garbage was removed only once a week, so it stank and attracted even more rats. The owner played innocent saying that she had never seen rats and nobody else had complained. This was hard to believe as there were rat-traps and poison in the back yard. Everybody else living in the area keeps dogs and cats to scary rats away.
It is really a shame the owner had not warned us about the rats, although she knew we would be traveling with a 9-month baby and that danger rats could present for him. Not a single word of apology from the owner whatsoever.
Better stay away from this property.
