About Ronda Janicki
My husband and I live in Erie, PA USA and have owned our home in the Dominican Republic for 13 years. We also have a time share in Ambergris Cay, Belize. It's a 3 bedroom pent house overlooking the Barrier Reef. You can call if you are interested in that as well. Our favorite past time is to travel. We have 2 Westie female dogs that like to travel with us.
Ronda Janicki purchased this House in 2003
Why Ronda Janicki chose Cabarete
My husband and I have looked all over for vacation homes and Cabarete, DR is the place to be! We loved it from day 1 because you can really experience the local feel of the country and it's not overly commercialized like most Islands. They have fantastic authentic seafood and there is one restaurant that is American owned with traditional American/Irish food. The house is located 1 mile from the town so it does not have all of the noise you would have in town but close enough to be there on a 10 minute walk up the beach. To get to the beach you will walk down 1 short private street and it takes a little over a minute. We also like the fact that there is management on site along with security and daily maid service. There is also a little cafe 50 feet from our home.
What makes this House unique
We have a large double lot. Our home has been completely updated in 2014. All new furniture, fixtures and management. 55 inch flat screen TV mounted on the wall with a CD and DVD player. FREE Wi-FI and TONS of lounging areas. If you have a baby or toddler, we have a great set up for you!

Everything you want and more!
We were greeted by the very friendly manager and she explained everything we needed to know about the property. Told us fun things to do and places to go. This villa is perfectly located in Cabarete, only a 10 minute walk on the beach to all of the restaurants and shops. The little community the villa is in is very quiet and very safe. And it’s only a minute walk to the beach. The house itself is very spacious and comfortable. It’s brightly decorated and has everything we needed in the kitchen to cook our meals and store our food. If we ever needed anything the maid or the manager was right there with in minutes. The owner Ronda was extremely nice and communicated with us before our holiday so we were prepared for everything! We will definitely be back again and again! They also own the house next door called Villa Italia and it is AMAZING!!!!! It’s also listed in VRBO. you should check it out too.
Hi Joe, we are happy you were so satisfied with our villa, staff and our location! We take a lot of care in making sure all of our guests get 5 star service and it’s so rewarding to be noticed for it! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future weather it’s in this Villa Dawn or next door in our Villa Italia :)
Lovely house great location
The house was perfect for our family. There was everything we needed to cook, enjoy the pool and have a good night’s sleep. Even the puzzle and books came in handy. Perhaps the only thing missing is a large salad bowl or serving dish.
We found Erika’s assistant and Mr. Moreno very friendly but did not appreciate our contact with Erika. She made no effort to make us feel welcome or provide us with information prior to our stay. Overall it was a good house for us.
Aoife we are so happy you and your family enjoyed our home! We usually have a large bowl but it must be missing, I will insure we get a new one. When Erika is unavailable she relies on her assistant Lisbeth to take her place. We hired her do do that job. We are happy you found Lisbeth and Moreno to be very friendly and helpful :)
We look forward to welcoming you back to Villa Dawn again in the future!
Can’t wait to go back!
We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Dawn! Perfect house, perfect location! Kitchen had everything we needed. Pool was so refreshing. Beach was just minutes walk through beautiful homes in gated Bahia de Arena. We didn’t even need shoes to go to dinner, walked the beach to fantastic restaurants. Walking to town was easy with cute shops and anything you could need. We felt very safe throughout our entire stay. Local’s were friendly and helpful. If you love adventure, take Iguana Mamas Mushroom Canyoning tour! Also made the trek to Punta Rusia’s Paradise Island and had amazing food at Corlaes Punta Rusia with Rene! Get a massage from Larissa. Never made it to Puerto Playta saving that for next visit! Can’t wait to go back! May try flying into Puerto Playta next time. Thank you Chuck and Ronda for perfect stay!
We are super happy you and your family loved our home and all that Cabarate had to offer. We look forward to you visiting us again during your next trip!
This property is the best
Palm trees and green landscaping surround the villa and its beautiful pool. The neighborhood is very secure with about 20 or so very unique looking houses/villas.
Villa Dawn has plenty of room inside, high ceilings, and is nicely decorated. It even has an observation deck.
The staff cleans the house every day as well as the grounds. They are also very friendly, but usually do the work while you're away.
The property offers easy access to a very clean and interesting beach. In the morning, its a nice walk in all directions.
In the afternoon, the winds come up which brings out the kite surfers. Its quite a sight to see hundreds of colorful kites in the air with surfers doing their tricks. Off the beach, it can be surprisingly calm and a good time to hit the pool.
We had dinner more than once at the Beach Side Restaurant which is just a short walk. It has very good food at reasonable prices in a very nice setting. Other restaurants are a ways further down towards town. Most offer outdoor seating.
We highly recommend Villa Dawn for an enjoyable vacation.
We are so happy you and your wife enjoyed our Villa Dawn as much as we do! We are so proud of our staff and how they take care of our home and our visitors. We are so lucky to have such an awesome location too! We hope you come back and let us take care of you again during your next vacation to Cabarate! :)
Amazing villa can’t find any better location. Staff are awesome and our host was fantastic. 3rd year here we will be back for many more.
We are so super happy you and your family continue to return to our Paradise William and we love to share it with you! Please come back and enjoy it again next year 😊�✌🏾�🌴�
A wonderful experience in this beautiful property!
Our family had a wonderful experience in this beautiful property. It feels very Dominican yet has important modern amenities, such as very updated bathrooms, TVs and air conditioners. The pool is on a double lot so it felt spacious with lots of sun! Our family of four fit very comfortably, and the staff was fantastic! We felt very safe and were within a 10 minute walk from all restaraunts, shopping, ice cream, etc. The beach and ocean are beyond beautiful--lots of wind and waves so if you love that for great ocean swimming and kite boarding it is the perfect vacation spot!
We are so happy you and your family loved our home as much as we do. And yes, our staff definitely goes above and beyond to make every guest feel like they are family. We are so fortunate to have a home in such a lovely community so close to all of the hot spots, yet private and quiet for peaceful rest. Please visit us again! :)
Kite Surfing and Wind surfing. You can have a private certified massage therapist come to the house to do your private massages.
