Dominican Republic North Coast House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

In your private home you will enjoy dining on the lanai overlooking the private pool. In the morning look out the rooftop deck for a stunning view of the sun rise. A 10 minute walk up the beach will take you to town where there are many restaurants and shopping to excite anyone's tastes. If you prefer we have a private driver you can call if you want to get a ride into town and he can take you on any adventure you want like Whale watching, mountain climbing, snorkeling, you name it! His name is Joseph and he has an 8 passanger van with leather seats and airconditioning. It was just purchased December 2011. You can prepare your own meals or you can have someone prepare them for you for a small fee. Watch the video and it will show you the inside and outside of the house along with your walk from the house to the beach. The master bedroom with the king size bed has an attached full bathroom. One guest room has a bunk bed with the top a twin mattress the bottom is a full mattress then you can pull out another twin mattress below the full (purchased 2/2/2012) and the other has a Queen sized bed and they share a bathroom that is not connected to either room.

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 Dominican Republic North Coast

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!

Great house in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 days at Villa Dawn with our two kids (10 and 6) and their grandmother. The development Bahia de Arena is perfect for those looking to rent a house in Cabarete. Security is great, our kids ran around in the complex visiting their friends who were staying at another house. Walking to the beach takes 3 mins and once you are there a quick 2 min walk to the right gets you to a beach club where you can get chairs/umbrellas food/drink. The beach area is very spacious and not crowded. Also great waves for boogie boarding. Kite lessons available right there as well. Perfect set up. Villa Dawn had one of the largest yards of all the houses and a very nice pool where the kids played and we watched while siting on the patio. If you're looking for calmer waters sosua beach is 15 min drive which we also did a couple of times. Cabarete town is 5 min drive lots of bars restaurants. Overall great vacation and highly recommended!

We enjoyed the Villa Dawn

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with the Villa Dawn was an awesome experience. Ronda was awesome with helping us make our trip a success. The Villa is in a very great location. We walked the beach every day and walked up to town via the beach. The Villa is very clean and very quite. We loved sitting on the porch in the morning listening to the birds and watching the beautiful sunrise. Thank you Ronda

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beautiful home. The first time we took our children, who had an amazing vacation and were very upset that we went this year without them! We loved the house and location so much we asked our friends to come share the experience with us this year.

The driver Joseph is great and greeted us at the airport. We stopped and picked up groceries on the way to the house. He is also available to take you on tours and such should you want during your trip. A car is not needed while staying here.

The house is located in a small gated community, and the manager Mark was there to greet us and always accessible should you need anything. The house is beautifully maintained and updated with nice décor. Ana the maid and the landscaper -sorry, forgot his name- do an exceptional job. The grounds are well kept with lush greenery. The yard is enclosed with a charming stone wall for privacy. The patio is covered and overlooks the pool, with a table and the most comfortable rocking chairs. Truly enjoyed the outdoor living and the feel of the ocean breeze. Beautiful views of the beach and kite surfers could be seen from the upper decks.

The pool is simply perfect, sparkling clean and just the right temperature to enjoy day and night.

We enjoyed preparing meals at the home, including the grill and the blender to make delightful frozen cocktails. And a short, pleasant walk along the beach to town has many restaurants/bars where you can enjoy a delicious meal with your toes in the sand.

The beach is less than a minute walk from the house and is clean, no seaweed, and soft sand perfect for a relaxing stroll. The waves are great to body surf or boogie board.

Everything about our trip was perfect and I cannot wait until we can visit again. Thank you to the owners, Chuck and Ronda, for allowing us to share your beautiful home!

cabaret home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

I would diffently recommend this property to others…This place is so beautiful close to shops eatery and a short walk to the beach… The owner of this property is so available to answer any question you may have through e-mail and phone.. they have a driver who well pick you up at the airport and bring you were you need to go. It is a gated community which provides security around the clock.The best place to eat is the coffee shop located right next door amazing food and coffee…I would recommend staying here you cannot go wrong with the friendly service

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home in Cabarete. I can't agree with you more with the charm of the house and how close all of the dining and shopping is. The best part is the Cabarete Coffee Company just steps away. Their coffee is the best in the world (my opinion too) and their breakfast and lunch is yummy and affordable. Laura, I would like to see you back again next year :)

relaxing,close to beach,all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our friends. The house was clean and neat, everything we needed.Just beautiful on the inside and the outside. The pool and yard was well maintained. We would walk around the corner in the morning to a cute little coffee shop,the food was as good as the coffee was and so close. Also a close walk to the beach,as my husband and I enjoy doing in the morning, the views were breathtaking! We would recommend this property to anyone. The fact that we did not have a car was not a problem, we would walk to any shopping or any restaurant we wanted. Other times we wanted to go places we just called a taxi, everyone was so nice and helpful to us. We had a great time!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review! Oddly it looks like my husband Chuck wrote the review and he did not, could this be a mistake? Did you put his name where you should have put your name???? Anyway, we feel the same way you do about our property and we are super glad you enjoyed it!
