Paradise up on the hill overlooking the valley where cows graze, where music floats up the hill from the village of Luperon. Majestic mountains where afternoon thunderclouds develop. Welcome pool a few yards away and a beach 15 min. walk from your door!
Very private air conditioned, or open your screened windows, apartment, we named it 'Sugar Shack', set on the hillside overlooking the valley, the friendly town of Luperon, the majestic mountains, ocean and the bay where you can see the boats at anchor. Lots of interaction in town and at the Marina with the locals, boaters and landlubbers who, like us, have decided to settle in this beautiful part of the island, or you can relax, read or write on the balcony or at the pool.
The beach close by is fun to snorkel. I have masks, fins and snorkels available for use. (free of course!)
Free wifi, kitchen, hot shower, queen size bed with amazing views to wake up to with windows giving you a panoramic view, waking up to all the songbirds and roosters in the distance.
A few min. drive to the beach or a 15 min. walk. Lots of restaurants in Luperon (most times cheaper to eat out than cook) with local and American food, 5 min. drive away. Most visitors use the local transport which is either buses or in Luperon, a motor bike taxi, called a motoconcho. We now also have mototaxis which are motorbikes with a seating carriage to carry 2 people and your shopping. They are a phone call away.
Luperon is a typical Dominican town and very safe to enjoy. Many cruising sailboats pass though our harbor on the way to and from the Bahamas to the Caribbean.
We can arrange a motor BOAT CRUISE with Capt. Tom to see the bay or go to the next beach.
Astrid can take you HORSE RIDING and pack a picnic lunch to have at one of the beautiful view sites.

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 website 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 Puerto Plata Province
This will be your home away from home - all you will need to bring are some swimsuits, shorts, T-shirts and maybe one slightly more dressy outfit to wear to a dinner party at La Vela, Puerto Blanco Marina.
What makes this Apartment unique
At the end of the day, you will find peace and serenity away from the activity of the village. Watch the sun slip behind the mountain while drinking a rum punch! Artists and writers have come for a few days and stayed for months. They just did not want to leave!

ReviewsThis property doesn't have any reviews yet.
Sugar Shack is located on our property in a residential area, 5 minutes drive to the beach or town (about 15 to 20 minutes walking). Fun places to visit are the 27 waterfalls, the cable car up the mountain in Puerto Plata, visit Sosua and Cabarette, more touristy but nice for a day. The beach at La Isabella is our favourite spot for sun downers and seafood at Marlyn's. Punta Rusia is a bit further by car but from there you can take a boat trip to Paradise Island to snorkel and return to the beach for fresh seafood. Paradise Island is a small stretch of sand with the best snorkeling.
