To anyone who has wanted to live overseas, learn a new language and culture, this is the place for you!! I am offering my newly built and now furnished Dominican republic house to those who want to get out of the typical 'touristy' vacation.
It is in a international rustic gated community, so it is secure!
This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (2 master bedrooms) house sleeps 4-5 people as there is 1 sofabed. It is an open concept house (kitchen, living and dining room are together) - with cathedral high ceilings, so everyone is always together and the house is kept cool. Both the living room and 1-master bedroom lead to the outside porch. Each bedroom has a closet (main master bedroom has a walk-in closet).
There are also ceiling fans and every room as well as screens on all windows and doors. The master bedroom has now an AIR CONDITIONER installed! All guests will have bath towels, bedding and beach towels as well as plates, pots and pans, etc... to live like you are in your OWN HOME!!
Enjoy being outside in the big backyard complete with a BBQ grill and table and chairs. New addition, there is a white tarp and hammock for the outdoor back patio.
After dinner enjoy the game room in the garage including a full size ping pong table, table top Foosball, dart board and board games! We have had many late nights having ping pong competitions!!
Perhaps take the 3 bikes available in the house and go for a bike ride around the town to visit the marinas or local beaches. Lots of options, even relaxing at the pool and tiki bar at night after a nice game of basketball.
The house also has hot water and we have done our best to ensure that water and electricity will be available most of the time. There is also a washer and dryer included with the house located in the laundry room.
We have done our best to ensure you will have a pleasant stay!!
Luperon is also a town on the coast, which of course has local beaches (Playa Grande, Playita, El Castillo, El cambiaso y Punta Rusia) some as close as 5 minutes away. They are not lined with tons of tourists. Take out the 3 bikes and explore these local beaches and a river!
Luperón is known to be a safe Hurricane hole surrounded by breathtaking scenery, whose residents are friendly and forthcoming
It also has lots of fresh seafood that is available at the local restaurants as well as typical dishes. The town has other 'foreigners' who fell in loved with the town and decided to stay.
Danielle was a gracious host. She sent a thorough welcome packet listing great places to visit and eat in the area and detailing important information, as well as answered all of our questions as they arose. When we arrived, the house was clean and beautiful (this says something knowing how many bugs can accumulate each day in the tropics) and we found everything we needed to feel at home- even bikes to get around more easily. The house is a bit off the beaten path in a magical port town called Luperón which we found to be more peaceful and relaxed than Puerto Plata - the nearest large city about 1 hour a way. Luperón is a small town where everyone knows each other and welcomes you in like family. We had a great time and felt very well cared for. Highly recommend.
I grew up in PA, USA and have lived in the Dominican Republic & Ecuador for a few years. I have built up friendships with the locals and since it's outside of the 'typical' touristy spots, I couldn't resist to build a house here.
I wanted to build a house in this rustic town since I like to be in a relaxed, quiet local town yet close to the beach. But hey, don't let it fool you, it's close enough to major cities and beaches when you want a change. Its an island!!
Hanging out with the locals and getting to live like you are in your OWN modern home is a plus.
The house has a lot of land around it - so no, you will not look through your window and see what your neighbors are doing!! You can relax in this house as it is comfortable and modern and from the outside porch while grilling, you may see cows walking by!
Plus there is a great pool area with a tiki bar, BBQ grill, brick pizza oven and a small building with bathrooms and changing rooms.
There are no crowd beaches lined with tourists, cheap licor cocktails or nobody selling you overpriced items as you relax with your family and friends. However, some local beaches do sell drinks and food.
This is not your typical Dominican vacation. Get away from the resort type of vacation and live like a local!!

While you are there, take out the bikes and explore!!
Outside of the town, nearby attractions are 27 waterfalls, a must see when coming to visit. Also visit the mountains in Jarabocoa - go mountain biking, hiking and if you are feeling really adventurous, then go hiking up the tallest mountain in the Caribbean - Pico Duarte.
Lastly, visit Santiago - which has all the modern chain restaurants, super markets as well as movie theatres. The opposite direction there is Puerto Plata, Sosua and Caberete.
The house is in a great location, as you are in the middle of both the mountains and the coast. Get out and see the 'REAL' Dominican Republic!!
Just off the main highway, before you reach El Castillo, is the entrance to Parque Nacional La Isabela (Mon–Sat 9am–5.30pm, closed Sun; RD$150), which takes up much of the village’s shoreline and preserves the ruins of La Isabela, the second oldest European town in the New World. Discover the place where the 15th century settlement of explorer Christopher Columbus has decided to call home.
