|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
In a brand new 10 condominium development, Seahorse-Villas. This is a main floor, handicap accessible, 1 bedroom unit with plenty of windows. 'White and Bright.' This unit features brand new kitchen and appliances, of course, beautiful new furniture. The bedroom has a king size bed and air conditioning.
Wake up in the morning and enjoy the sunrise over the clear blue ocean.
The complex is built on top of the highest street and hill in Costambar, and features, roof top access, which is the highest point in Costambar, a village of 2500, which is a gated and walled community right outside of Puerto Plata.
For pool lovers, we have the largest pool in Costambar, and plenty of deck and green space to enjoy as well. All of the units windows are screened, as well as the door, and there are also plenty of ceiling fans, as with the great ocean breezes we enjoy year round, you rarely need the air conditioning! Great security walls and gate allow you to park your rented car inside.
i have been investing in real estate in minnesota and wisconsin for 25 years.
when we came on vacation here, the dominican republic reminded me of Hawaii, but at a fraction of the cost. great locally grown coffee is less than 2 bucks a pound here ,fruit is cheap and veggies, chicken and fish are reasonable.
so it has Hawaii weather but living at a fraction of a price. the ocean views here are spectacular, and the breezes keep it cool enough, that i never use the air conditioning ! we think we have developed condos that are a great value, and are in close proximity to the beach, city, everything !
The Owner purchased this condo in 2008
gated community, next to major city, for access to nice supermarkets, and stores, and medical facilities, and close to the airport, as well as great beaches, nice restaurants , golf course options, one hour from santiago, city of 1 million.
We arrived much later then planned and Jack (the owner) had made arrangements to have us picked up by Victor (great guy). Our condo was huge!!! Two very large bedrooms with two bathroom. There is a ton of storage for anyone having an extended stay. The kitchen was adequately stocked, large living room and large dining area as well. Our condo had two baloneys. There was air conditioning but we just used the ceiling fans in the evening. There was a great breeze from the ocean so that kept the condo just right. The pool area was very nice, large pool, floating chairs to relax in. The grounds were very well cared for, the staff was great. We were able to walk to the beach - just a short 10 min walk - where there were beach bars/restaurants. Jack made himself available should we need anything. I would highly recommend this vacation rental. It is a gated community so we always felt safe within the community. Jack is very knowledgeable about tours/restaurants etc. Both Jack and Carolina speak Spanish and English so no language barriers.
My family has owned a home and still own a condo in Costambar . We have rented all over Costambar. The only issue is that you have to make sure that where you are renting has: Electricity, Hot Water and is clean, bug free and has security and not located next to a bar or club. Sea Horse condos has it all and then some. From the day we arrived we were aware of the security and the wall and when we came home from dinner, the security guard stopped and made sure we could find our condo. We had forgotten to leave the light on the front porch, and walked us up there and had his flashlight ready for us. We had it all, a safe in the room, internet, English speaking television, a full kitchen and wonderful breezes. There is even a laundry facility, will be hauling less clothes this year due to that. The pool was wonderful, able to totally cool off and had shade to sit under and read a book. And clean, clean, clean. Tend to walk around barefoot in the condo and usually have to wash feet before getting into bed, not here, the floors were spotless. Bedding was clean and new. Always bring my own pillows due to allergies, but could have left them home here. Had a wonderful relaxing stay with lots of privacy. You can walk anywhere from here or if it's a windy day at the ocean, stay at the pool. And as always the markets and restaurants are right down the hill. Seahorse is convenient to everything. Will be booking again for this year shortly. And have now been recommending Seahorse to all our friends who would love to visit the Dominican Republic.
To spend time in Jack’s Horseshoe Condos in the Dominican Republic is more than a privilege. Not only is it every tropic lover’s dream of ocean views and breezes, palm trees sweetly whispering while you refresh yourself in the blamelessly clean pool, or sip your rum punch on one of the terraces or on the gazebo with a 360° view of an azure ocean and a wild mountain backdrop behind which the sun sets gloriously. The apartment is clean and airy, spacey and comes with aircon or/and fans. Were it not for all the adventures of an unbelievably Victorian Puerto Plata beckoning, with its bustle and seductive Caribbean aura, or the lure of wildly romantic palm tree-covered mountains and their waterfalls, you would never leave this, your own and private paradise.
But to be more down to earth: Of course you can prepare your own meals in your kitchen but you will find it hard to resist the many inviting restaurants within walking distance, offering Dominican, German, Austrian and international food at a surprisingly low price and of highest gourmet quality. Walk the calories off on the endless white beaches or dive and snorkel in the bathtub warm waters. Jack is a friendly and ever helpful host. His friendly staff do their best to oblige and keep the grounds groomed, the pool well serviced and give you the feeling of being looked after and safe. There is heavenly peace and quiet and safety beind a three meter wall fencing the grounds off from the next plots.
I had the pleasure of staying for 2 weeks at these condos. Great, very clean and all the staff are zoo helpful. If you are looking to party this is not the place for you but a beautiful view, clean grounds and great location then this is the place for you. Thanks Jack,
I stayed at this Beautiful Condo in Puerto Plata with my Fiancee. Indeed, heaven does exist as I imagine..
The Condo is located in a private secure setting about 20 minutes drive from Puerto Plata Airport. However, I arrived into Santiago Airport and Jack ( the owner ) arranged for a transfer (small fee) back to the house.
Once on the grounds, we felt safe and comfortable romancing our holiday away. The Condo was clean and well set up for Internet, satellite TV and all the mod cons required to make your holiday enjoyable and relaxing.
There are a couple of really important aspects to this place that sticks out for me and why I will return again and again....
Electricity in Dominican Rep can be unreliable. However, Jack the (really nice Guy and very professional) owner, has thought about this at length and provided both back up batteries and generators in order to over come problems, when they occur with power.
The other positive that sticks out is the size of the pool, combined with the privacy.
Finally, the staff are all very positive happy and helpful. Enjoy and experience Heaven !!!
I stayed for 2 weeks and thorougly enjoyed myself Screens on all of the windows and door were a welcome touch as it kept out most of tne mosquitos when leaving the windows open. And you are definitely going to want to open the windows. The breeze was fantastic. I usually have issues with heat rashes and allergies, but had no issues here. Jack and his team took good care of me and genuinely wanted my stay to be the best i have had. I rented a car and Antonio who works there noticed that the front tire was low. He pumped it up a couple of times until i could get to a tire repair in town. The condo was large, with nice living room furniture (no wicker and i could stretch out on the sofa), king size bed, and what a fantastic view of the ocean. I would sit and have my breakfast and coffee in the dining section while looking over the ocean. I never turned on the air conditioner as it wasn't needed. I liked the pool as it was long enough to swim lengths for exercise. The complex was very tranquil and relaxing. I am definitely coming back again and I highly recommend it. Thanks Jack and crew for a wonderful experience.
