I ve just finished my vacation and had a great time. The local Security/ Goundsman Rene, who has been here for 3 years now, looked after my needs well, shopping for me, and getting things I needed.
The house is clean, tidy and well maintained. The Villa is situated at the end of a closed road, and is quiet. But only a short walk to all the main amenities. Short walk to the beach. which is beautiful.
The pool is nice, overall depth at about 5 ft.
We used the Gas Grill on the roof, and had a great time.
Good Internet, wifi.
24/7 electric... we opted for the option to prepay a sum of money to cover average electricity usage and I've checked the rate, and usage and found we had used more electric than had been billed, and so we have had a good deal.
The owner has recently taken over the management of the house himself, and replies very promptly to any emails we sent him. Good service.
Local amenities are excellent for the DR, with a mall with a bakery, pharmacy and food hall, restaurants and bars.
Actually posting this review whilst I am here, I leave tomorrow. Will come back again.
Owner's Response: Hey, thanks for your review. I really appreciate your comments.
Yes, - just taken over the management of my property myself and just added a few extra little things to add to the enjoyment of your stay. We have a few table games/ dominoes/ and a few books there to read..
Also, I've left a couple of information booklets about local attractions/restaurants/bars. Where to go? What to do? I have an English and Spanish-speaking lady living next to the house, who works in the Tourism Industry and can get group bookings for Trips, at greatly discounted rates... Just ask for Julie!
Rene is great isnt he? Always willing to help and of course expect a little tip... but saves you time and gets the things that you want quickly.. He has just acquired a motorbike and is very proud of it, but does allow m-cycle riders to use it if they want, for a small price of course.
Also have some dates where prices are heavily discounted too.. so if you do decide to go down there again, let me know and I'm sure to be able to get you a great price.
I have already a few clients who visit regularly.
As for the electric, well, you were careful, we appreciate that also, and I'm glad that you got a good deal.. I am not out to make money on the electric, but as it is one of the most expensive items in DR, we do ask people to be careful.
I am also providing a Dominican Cell Phone (if required) for a small fee and deposit, in the future, so that it makes it cheaper to contact taxis, restaurants, etc. Its a prepay but the most of the local shops sell the top up cards, and Rene knows where to get them for you.
