About Danielle

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.

Danielle purchased this House in 2013

Why Danielle chose Luperon

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.

What makes this House unique

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! Take the 3 adult bikes and 1 kids bike (for 9yr olds) out on the town. I also can offer you facial and massage services that will come right to the house to make it a complete vacation experience. 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. Feel free to bring your own food and cocktails to the beach!!

                                                                  Cross-cultural experience


                                                                  Our family (including 3 children ages 2, 4 & 6) enjoyed our four month cross-culture experience in Luperon. The house was fully supplied with appliances for cooking and living, hot showers and a steady supply of solar electricity. The beds were excellent as well. Our goals in coming to Luperon included learning quiet and simple living in a new culture, learning a new language, and connecting with village life and the people who live here. Thanks to the friendly neighbours and very helpful nature of the Dominican people, we reached many of our goals. Various services in the neighbourhood made our stay comfortable and integrated us with the community. Sisa cleans the house and gives lessons in the art of Dominican cooking. The supermarcado at the end of the dirt road (by the helicopter sign) was where we bought our regular supply of eggs, rice, milk, raisins, oatmeal, brown sugar, bananas, bread, and tomatoes. They also sell pampers, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, canned veggies, pasta, soda, chocolate bars and shoes etc. Joseph (the owner) offered free delivery for bottled drinking water. Marino, the vegetable delivery man, came several times a week with his pick up truck loaded with fresh vegetables and fruit (including carrots, potatoes, broccoli, celery, tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, watermelon, oranges, mangos, etc.). The delightfully friendly and careful motoconcho (motorcycle taxi) drivers gave our family rides to and from Luperon; if we knew the name of a place we wanted to go, they knew the way. Friendly and helpful neighbours along the dirt road to Luperon hills helped us learn the language and told us where we could go to find the things we needed. Nino, a taxi driver, is fluent in English, and arranged many of our other taxi drivers for us. Louisa is a blind masseuse in Luperon who gives excellent massages for about 12 USD an hour. The D' La France restaurant where we went for our weekly pizza is excellent. The Puerto Blanca Marina is where we where we borrowed English books to read (a lending library) and made connections for a boat ride around the harbour with Tom on Chug-A-Lug. Casa Blanca restaurant on a hill overlooks the marina and provides a great view of the harbor. The location of Danielle's house allows for quiet and tranquillity, while providing easy access to transportation into town. We also used Danielle’s bikes and our children enjoyed playing on the ping pong and foosball tables in the garage.

                                                                  Thank you so much for the kind review of my house as well as all the additional services we provide (cooking, massages, taxis, groceries, etc....). The locals in town are extremely friendly and we worked hard to make your stay enjoyable. Please note that we were happy to offer massages at a cheap rate since this was a new service we were rolling out. I hope that one day soon you can come and visit us again!!

                                                                  Dominican experience/American accomodation!

                                                                  Lys B.Hudson FL and Wingate NC

                                                                  We loved staying in Danielle's beautiful home! You will enjoy living in the real Dominican Republic but have an accommodation that will suit American standards. Danielle made sure to have mostly anything that you will need in her house. The place is clean and spacious. You will feel at home right away, we did! We loved it so much we are planning to return as soon as possible!

                                                                  Awesome place to rest & anjoy

                                                                  Raúl S.

                                                                  the yellow house is the perfect place where you wanna stay to rest and anjoy because you can see the nature face to face. no noice arround. friendly people in town. The beach is 5 minutes driving etc. My wife and I stayed for a week on danielle"s house and we" d love to be back soon. We recommend it 100%.

                                                                  Much better than a resort!

                                                                  Danielle R.-

                                                                  My wife and I had an excellent time staying at Danielle's beautiful home in Luperon. This is not a tourist/resort destination, so it may not be for the less adventurous, but for those interested in the real Dominican Republic, you will be richly rewarded. There are several excellent beaches within a short drive. Some of the green mountainous scenery is so beautiful it is almost painful. The people are extremely friendly and gracious. There are several day trip options also available. Danielle was also an excellent host. She has a beautiful 2-bedroom home that looks exactly like the photos. We stayed for 6 weeks and regret it wasn't longer. The pool is gorgeous for peaceful afternoons. The night sky is filled with stars. This is around a farming community, so I must say we really enjoyed seeing the cows, chickens, turkeys, donkeys, etc. Coming from Chicago, I initially wasn't sure I would be able to buy sufficient food in Luperon. But once we started exploring the little shops and restaurants, we actually never left Luperon to buy anything. If you are a good swimmer, the beaches have impressive coral reefs with lots of sea treasure (small conches, urchin shells, white shells, fish, brain corral, fan corral, etc). I only took dead shells without inhabitants. The tourist areas around Punta Cana or Boca Chica have many annoying hustlers trying to make money. You won't have any of this is Luperon. We had a hard time spending more than $6 a day on food and grocery shopping. A guy fixed my flat tire for $2.50. We mostly went to the beaches (Playa Grande, Playa Chiquita, Playa Cambiosa, and Playa Isabella/Casillo), The closest airport would be Puerto Plata - about an hour away. Weather was perfect. I highly recommend Danielle and Luperon for someone looking to get away for a quiet adventure.

                                                                  Loved it

                                                                  My husband and I enjoyed our vacation in the DR so much that I have to tell you about it. We traveled the whole country from top to bottom on public busses and gua gua's. It was a blast and we are not young, ages 65 and 53. I would highly recommend the public transportation to everyone and we don't speak Spanish. It is safe and very efficient. Everyone is friendly and willing to help. You will have a lot of laughs at the unique experience. We still chuckle about it until today. The positives about staying at Danielle's house is that it has everything you need for your stay. The house has plenty of space. I loved the shower. The queen size bed is new and comfortable in the master bedroom. I loved that it is near to the 27 waterfalls and easy to get to. All you need to do is walk to the end of her street (5 min.) just stand there and wait for a gua gua to come along and pick you up. They drive by frequently just hold your finger out. It takes you to Imbert and from there it is 5 minutes away either by a moto (someone who will give you a ride on the back of his motorcycle) or another gua gua. We did all 27 waterfalls but you can opt to do less which is fine because the best ones are near the finish. Book to eat lunch there when you purchase your ticket. You will be very hungry after and the food is good and all u can eat. Wear old shorts and shoes for the water. The best thing we loved about Danielle's house was the pool area. There was never anyone there. We would relax by the pool every evening alone, not a person in sight and watch the sun set with a bottle of wine. It was fantastic. Every night we would ride the bikes into the town and have dinner at a restaurant. The bikes are in great condition and we asked if we could bring them into the restaurant while we ate and they agreed since there are no locks for the bikes. The town is laid back. The beach is pretty with very few people. The kind woman who lives in the 1st house outside the entrance gate sold us some of her freshly laid chicken eggs for our morning breakfast. Try the butter from the market in town. It was the creamiest I've ever had. We did not see one mosquito the whole time in the house, by the pool area or at the 27 waterfalls. The sky is filled with stars at night. Thank you for the lasting memories! We'd love to return again sometime.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I really appreciate the wonderful review of my house and town. It is such a unique spot on the island and laid -back. You both were such wonderful guests and hope that you come back soon!

                                                                  Tranquil, beautiful & close to everything.

Not only was it beautiful but we had a wonderful time at the river and the beach. The town was so nice and everyone was so warm and friendly. We were nervous at first because we thought we were lost but found the place without a problem. We actually found a Colmado that played mexican music/rancheras and danced a few songs. That was a treat.

                                                                  Come see the real Dominican Republic -Far from the resort-clogged beaches and cheap souvenirs, visit the less-frequented northern shore which is still under the radar! Luperon is a town on the coast, which of course has local beaches not lined with tons of tourists. 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. While you are there, take out the 3 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.
