Dominican Republic Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Close to town, beaches, restaurants, and a come home, away from it all feeling.

We are in Luperon, a small fun town an hour from Puerto Plata on the North coast.

Guests rave about The Rest. It is separate from the main house, built on a hillside overlooking cow pastures, the ocean and the bay, the town in the distance (5 min. away by car) and views of the majestic mountains. It is open plan with a queen size bed, hot shower, fully equipped kitchen, dining areas both inside and outside. We have also recently redecorated giving The Rest a Caribbean turquoise and conch shell ocean feel. So restful!!

The yard is full of colorful flowers and a path leads to a very private swimming pool with lounges and a tiki hut.

Luperon town is within walking distance (about 20 min) or 5 min. by car. The beach is a 15 min. walk from your door. Many restaurants and bars line the streets of Luperon, and many boaters, on their way to or from the Caribbean and Bahamas, stop here to enjoy our little town.

Our area is residential, so very quiet and safe. Attractions in the area include a 20 min. car ride to Isabella for fish/lobster, sun downers on the beach. Punta Russia is a bit further west also has a beautify beach, lined with restaurants. A waterfall is 40 minutes away where tourists enjoy sliding and jumping down the falls, great fun! Small grocery stores are in Luperon, but major shopping (just like home) is in Puerto Plata and Santiago, our two bigger north coast cities. Motoconchos (motor bikes) and gwagwas (taxis) are a phone call away. A luxury bus also stops in Luperon that will take you across the island for less than $10.00.

Luperon will give you the experience of enjoying a small Dominican town, and The Rest will give you the feeling of peace, independence and a place to call home.

About Margie

I'm originally from South Africa. Sailed across the Atlantic on a 36 ft sailboat and eventually after many years of sailing, put anchor down in Luperon, Dominican Republic in 2001. We have two vacation apartments in Luperon on our property, 'The Rest' and 'Sugar Shack'. We travel extensively and use this site for local and international bookings. We have had first hand experience dealing with them and have always been happy with the places we have booked. We hope you will do the same.

Margie purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Margie chose Caribbean

We are situated in one of the best areas outside of Luperon but within walking distance of the beach and 5 minutes from town.

What makes this apartment unique

You will be happy to leave the busy streets of Luperon and come back to the tranquility of your setting up on the hill, away from it all. Relax and watch the sun go down behind the hill. Crickets chirp at night and you wake up to cocks crowing in the distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at The Rest. I can't really add to any of the descriptions above. The apartment was clean and perfect for our needs. Margie was delightful and extremely helpful and responsive before we went and ladies who were house sitting for her were more helpful than any hotel staff could ever be. The location is out of town (20 minute walk), but there is always transportation available with a 15 minute notice. Plus being positioned where it is provides a nice breeze most of the time which would not be available otherwise. Luperon is a great place with great people - both the locals and the cruiser/expats. The biggest problem we had was deciding how to spend our limited time as by the end of the first day we had too many invitations to do things than we had days to do them. Thanks, Margie, for letting us share your property.

Guests rave about The Rest. Close to the town, beaches, restaurants, and has a great come home feeling of getting away from everything and enjoying your very own space. Our pool is also a few yards away for your enjoyment.

It is open plan with a queen size bed, hot shower, fully equipped kitchen, dining areas both inside and outside.

The yard is full of colorful flowers and a path leads to a very private swimming pool with lounges and a tiki hut. The beach down the road is also fun to snorkel. I have masks, fins and snorkels available to you - free!

Luperon town is within walking distance (about 20 min) or 5 min. by car. The beach is a 15 min. walk from your door. Many restaurants and bars line the streets of Luperon, and many boaters, on their way to or from the Caribbean and Bahamas, stop here to enjoy our little town.

Please, no smoking inside The Rest!
