BEAUTIFUL BEACHFRONT!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of 10 enjoyed a week in this fabulous beachfront property! The house is gorgeous and directly on the beach. It is in a gated community with 24 hour security. The manager, Mark, was very helpful in answering questions and making our arrival seamless. On windy days, the beach is loaded with kiters and windsurfers from about 11am on...not good for swimming. However, morning boogie boarding was great and on low wind days the swimming was perfect! The beach is clean fine sand where you can walk out quite a ways before it gets too deep.
We hired a cook for the week, Illuminada. She was wonderful and arranged though Mark. She prepared some delicious local dishes that we enjoyed tremendously. Ana cleans the house daily which was great considering all the sand we trekked in. Manuel did a great job cleaning the pool and the grounds.
The house itself was in great condition. There are four bedrooms (two bedrooms with queens, one bedroom with 2 queens and one bedroom with 4 bunks). It was clean and well cared for. The only trouble we had was with the dishwasher and one of the air conditioning units...which were a plus for sleeping! The pool was perfect for the kids...age 12 and under. It is an easy walk to downtown Cabarete...a great spot for lunch or dinner.
We kited, windsurfed, paddle boarded, zip lined, visited the monkeys, visited the local school with donations, jumped off waterfalls, went fishing, body surfed, built sandcastles, swam and walked for miles!
It's a wonderful vacation destination!!!

SIMPLY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our stay here!

The house was perfect… one of the best, if not the best property in Cabarete. We were four adults and three kids (aged 4, 6, 13) in Cabarete for some R&R and kite boarding. There was lots of room for us to eat together inside or out, hang out as a group or have some quiet time apart. The pool was fabulous and maintained every day (half the pool was shallow enough for my four-year-old to stand). The location on the beach was ideal as we could launch our kites directly in front of our house. The view was fantastic and watching the sunrise from the patio was the perfect way to start the day.

Property manager Mark was extremely helpful in arranging a ride to and from the airport (for seven people and all our gear), as well as suggestions on where to bank, exchange money, and grocery shop. His office is on site so he is always around to deal with any issues or questions that may arise. He arranged for the amazing Illuminada to cook for us and we had many delicious meals. Housekeeper Ana was great, always a smile and a special "Hola" for the kids.

We took kite lessons from Damien, Marie, and Cory of StarKiting (highly recommended). They are located in the Bahia de Arena complex and conveniently bring all their gear down to the beach in front of the house, which was perfect as we were able to hang out at the house as we waited for the wind to come up.

If you don't hire Illuminada (or another cook), it is a short walk along the beach to a string of restaurants. The Cabarete Coffee Shop is a two minute walk away at the entrance to the Bahia de Arena complex. They sell delicious espresso, sandwiches, and brownies.

One thing I would bring on a future visit is a few beach/pool toys for the kids as there was nothing like that at the house. Otherwise, the place had everything we needed and we look forward to returning one day soon.

A PRISTINE, PERFECTLY LOCATED VILLA CLOSE TO CABARETE, BUT NOT TOO CLOSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 (4 teenagers) really enjoyed the experience of this Villa on Cabarete beach (West-end). It was in great shape, renovated I believe for the most part. Very comfortable with many nice sitting areas inside and out of the Villa. In a private enclave of other Villas, which made you feel secure and special and located right on the beachfront with a Stone wall and hedge to provide you ultimate privacy. Everyone in our family, without exception, found this place to have all we needed for a comfortable, convenient vacation away from the noises and distraction of resorts, yet close enough to walk to Cabarete Beach for a meal in the evening. Kite Surfing for us (when the winds were up) was very enjoyable to watch and added an excitement of sorts to our stay. The stretch of beach from one end to the other was great for sunrise and sunset walks or jogging during the day for exercise. The sand and beach access at waters edge was perfect and poses no problems for kids, seniors or even non-swimmers as it is a gentle sloping beach with no sudden drops at the waters edge. You don't need a car if you plan on staying in the Cabarete area for you entire stay, other than airport transfers. Great restaurants located withing a mile or less and all the other shopping that you might need is close by. Also the Pool was a great addition and is very clean and well kept, great for a rinse off after spending the day at the beach. The maid does a superb job daily and is very pleasant and stays out of your way.

All in all this Villa was a special treat for our family and allowed us to spend quality time together without distractions.

We would definitely go back to this Villa. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!!!

Thank you to Mark the Manager for being available for us if we needed any questions answered. He was a great help.

IDEAL LOCATION, PLENTY OF SPACE, GOOD FOOD AND INTERESTING TOURIST ATTRACTIONS

  • 5 of 5
Bahia de Arena is a gated community of 19 houses. Just feet from the beach, this house is in the absolutely prime position within this small development. There is an almost constant breeze and there are plenty of room around the house, garden, patio and pool area for relaxing and taking in the wonderful views, especially of the kiteboarding.

We traveled as two families (each with two teenage girls) and found the house well equipped (including board games/wifi/books). The pool was also a big hit. There was maid service/pool service every day other than Sunday. There are a couple of good supermarkets in Cabarete and the house was well equipped to cook at home, this said we had some memorable meals out --at Bliss (we went there twice, it was so good), Natura Restaurant at Natura Eco Cabana and Spa and at Brasero. Also tried great baked goods/coffee at the Belgian Bakery. Only one disappointing meal out really -- at Jose O'Shays -- though the name alone should have been a giveaway! We also booked to have a chef come cook for us one night -- well worth it -- this was one of our favorite meals.

In terms of things to do locally, one not to be missed trips is to Monkey Jungle & Zip Line Adventures : this place is a new concept in self-sustaining, charitable giving -- the place operates a professional zip line park and separate hands-on experience where you get close up to spider monkeys in a reserve-like setting and its owners uses yr tourism dollars to fund an on-site, free dental/medical clinic for the poor, and provide jobs paying above average wages to its staff of locals. Would also recommend taking a yoga class at Natura Eco Cabana and Spa (beautiful oceanfront setting) or a tennis game or horse ride at the Sea Horse Ranch - an oceanfront resort nr Sosua with a v professional Equestrian Center. Right outside of town there is also a great half day adventure at the El Choco caves and national park: you get to swim in several underwater caves and explore the tree and plant life around the caves.

Our only criticism of Cabarete is that it could get quite noisy during the evening -- this said the house was the right distance away from the center of town (close enough to walk in along the beach but not so close as to be disruptive). If we have one criticism of the house it is that we would have loved to have some outdoor furniture on the large rooftop terrace, which also needed to have lights replaced.

ABSOLUTE PARADISE!!!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Estrella 3 times now, with the most recent stay lasting 2 weeks! THE HOUSE was spacious with an open floor plan, perfect for our large party of all ages; people sat at the dining table with their laptops, cooked in the kitchen, played cards or watched tv on the sofas, and read magazines in the glass nook, as the north coast winds came thru the doors and windows. There were 4 patios. 4!! The front lounge area is where i sat every morning and drank my coffee while my kids ran around the property. The back patio is where we ate almost every meal, which overlooks the yard and pool. The pool is surrounded by a perpetually blooming hibiscus hedge (& there always seemed to be a nice shady area at any given time). Last but not least, the roof deck screamed for a hot air balloon launch pad, roof top yoga, or a dance party, because it is out of this world! THE LOCATION was perfect for our family with young children. Without being on the sand, the house is right ON THE BEACH and was only a 2 minute walk to the sand, priceless! We easily packed up our beach gear and were at the beach in the drop of a hat. Likewise, we returned just as easily, washed off the sand at the outdoor shower, jumped in the pool, and were ready for out next activity. If you are a kiteboarder, this is where all the fellow kiters of the community ran to check the winds; if the winds were up, you would see them running back to their houses/apartments to grab their gear. We walked into town almost daily with 2 toddlers, an easy 10-15 minute walk without kids or a 25 minute walk if you are going to chase the tide in and out, collect shells, and stop and watch the kiters. Cabarete is a fun, low key, rustic yet trendy little beach town that is right off the beaten path. THE SERVICE was outstanding and consistent. The daily maid service was always pleasant, in fact, it has been the same people every year, who we now know. The pool guy even brings fresh coconuts and pours the juice into pitchers. The management company was very responsive to all of our needs. There was a great selection of games to play, baby gear (infant bath, high chair, crib, toddler utensils etc.), pool floats, etc. From the airport pick up, to arriving to Estrella, the most coveted house of Bahia de Arena (which I witnessed when other renters of the community gawked at our house and even a couple asked for tours for possibly renting in the future), we couldn't have asked for a more spectacular stay!
