Overview

Caribbean Villa Rental Photos and Description

Your Oasis in Paradise! 6 bedrooms/bathrooms sleeps 14 plus 2 twins in living rm

This beachfront home loaded with the things you would look for in a vacation rental. This wonderful Villa is 3 floors, the first and second floor have living quarters and the top is a large sundeck with stunning views of the ocean and mountains. Our villa offers a large swimming pool, placed just right on the property so you can bask in the warm sun and splash in the cool water! Through out the property there are several locations you can relax and read a book or just take a nap. We have 20 chaise lounger, some placed by the pool, on the 3rd floor a covered deck with ocean views, 2nd floor balcony and out on our private beach front. We even have a beautiful queen size bed by the pool. There is a tikki hut that provides shade and you can play a game of pool on our billiard table. The private beach front area is lined with tropical plants which create a fence for privacy, there is a path way that leads to the open public beach.

Our Villa comes with housekeeping too! In side every bedroom is an attached bathroom and cable TV. The second floor of the house offers a large living room/ gathering room. We have wifi with a good connection through out most of the property. Our chef Nidia is one of the best in Cabarete, she is available from 8am to 8pm daily. Pamper yourself waking every morning to coffee and tea ready and waiting for you! Please ask about her rates, as they are not included in the rental amount.

We are located 1.5 km east of Cabarete town center. Cabarete is a lively and active beach-side community that features world class kite-boarding, surfing, and wind-surfing. The Cabarete Bay strip offers a variety of restaurants, bars, and pubs, and is very popular among locals and tourists. Our secure and private beachfront villa is close enough to town to enjoy the nightlife, and just far enough away to feel like you've entered your own personal-sized Oasis. Embocca, a choice beachfront restaurant/bar is just minutes walk along the beach from outside our gate, which makes a night out even more convenient!

Want to get married on a tropical island? We have had several happy couples say their vows right out front on the beach. We also took care of all the arrangements for their wedding reception as well. So far the largest group we had was 100, the average size of most of the wedding receptions we have had are around 30-50. Please let me know if you would like more information about having your reception at our Villa.

***Despite our best efforts to maintain the hot tub in good operating condition, the extremely corrosive salt air environment, heavy sand loading in the air and sensitivity of the heaters and complex controls to this hostile environment, the hot tub was out of order as much time as it was in operational condition. This undependable operational schedule often resulted in frustration and disappointment for guests. Providing an amenity that did not dependably result in guest satisfaction required us to make a decision as to whether to continue to provide the hot tub. After evaluating this amenity over the past several months, we have decided to discontinue operation of the hot tub. We apologize for any disappointment this may cause you and are hopeful that the villa and Cabarete will offer many more opportunities to entertain you during your stay.********

Thanks again for choosing to stay with us in Cabarete.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I went here with a few of my friends for a 3 night 4 day stay. I had no clue on what to expect since I had never been to this side of dominican republic. I was blown away with what I walked into. We were welcomed graciously by Jose, Nidia, Julie and a few other staff who were ready for us to come there. The place was beautiful, clean, relaxing and spacious. They took care of us like they would their own family throughout the trip. I was definitely recommend staying here for your stay. They were accommodating to all our needs and made sure that we did nothing but relax.

Very nice property and staff!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at the house. It felt like a bed and breakfast with helpful staff around during the day. They meals they fixed were supper yummy! This was my first trip to the DR. I would recommend this place and I will be back. It was the perfect combination of relaxation when laying around the pool or beach right in front of the hours. When we were ready for night life, shopping and great restaurants we were very close to all of that as well. I felt very safe during my trip and was amazed by the great food I had everyday during my stay. The yard is very well manicured and there are lots of little nooks to tuck away and read and relax.

Great property, one of my favs in the DR!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 8th time staying at this residence and as always my time there was amazing! The staff is incredibly friendly (even though some don't speak English, but we always get along just fine), the home is clean and always kept up, the grounds are immaculate with Jose there cleaning every day and all appliances, fixtures and bathrooms worked great! I traveled there this time with 2 friends who also had an amazing time at the house. They stayed in the upper rooms of the guest house while i stayed in one of the rooms to the front of the house. The property is close enough to town to grab a quick motoconcho but just far enough away that you aren't in the middle of town (Cabarete). I would recommend this property to anyone looking to rent a villa in the DR or Caribbean for that matter!

Don't Stay Here!!!

  • 1 of 5

Well, I'm not sure where to begin…with the owner’s lack of response before or after the trip. First, let me say the pictures are misleading to put it mildly. I attempted many times to contact the owner previous to my group's arrival and you can imagine there were many questions. The owner was responsive previous to me making this booking, but went radio silent after the payment was made. A few phones calls and emails went unanswered. Needless to say, upon arrival my group was totally turned off by the actual property. It's old, out dated and run down. The only good thing I can say about the property is that staff was friendly and ready to help with any request. My group was so disappointed by the property that they only stayed there for a few hours...not even for the night despite paying for 4 days up front. Luckily we were able to find other accommodations in area. I understand Home Away's cancellation policy, but attempted to contact the owner to attempt to try and work out a solution, but went totally ignored. No email response, no phones call response....nothing. Now, I imagine she'll respond to this review and attempt to save face by saying different things she done...when in fact nothing was done. I'm actually looking forward to a reply to my review, because it’ll be the only reply I've received thus far.

We've been doing this trip for 4 years with a group of about 7 guys.

For the price we paid we are used to getting very exclusive villas, and 5 star service.

The Villa was not bad but is was not as luxurious as we are used to.

In all the previous villas we stayed, whatever we needed was arranged immediately by the staff.

Here we asked for a taxi at night and this could not be arranged. There were times when there was nobody at the villa to attend our needs. One night we asked for ice and it was never bought for us, and nobody told us anything. We just kept waiting till we realized that nobody was going to buy the ice for us.

At the reservation we were attended very good by the owners but the service was below average, even though the staff was very friendly

Owner's Response: Hello John. Thank you for your review and comments on reservation responsiveness. We have this villa because we love the locals and we love this island. Like most other owners we rent the villa to help offset some of the enormous expenses of owning a property that is in another country and also exposed to extreme elements of being on the beach with humid salty conditions. Our price point is reasonable for the location of being on the beach and the costly yearly maintenance of the villa, which supersedes any rental amounts we receive. A luxurious 5 start Villa in this area starts at $1000 per night for a 3 bedroom and can be as much as $3000 a night or more. At $475 per night for a 6 bedroom to sleep 12-16 guest that is a very reasonable price point for this villa. Currently for the size of our villa in this area we have the most economical price point. As for our staff, we have been given endless accolades for the amount of care, and help that they give above and beyond what they are paid to do at the property. This villa is not a hotel, our staff are not paid to wait on you, and they are not servants. It is clearly stated in our initial email response that the staff is there to clean the property and take care of any unexpected maintenance needs that could arise. Everything else that they do for our guest is because they are kind and are attempting to help our guest enjoy their vacation, and it is not part of their paid responsibilities. I am glad that you found them to be friendly regardless of the few items you listed that you were less than happy with. I appreciate your feedback and will try to find ways to improve our property resources for our future guests. Warm regards from everyone at our guesthouse.

AWESOME!!!

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Caribbean Crib. The staff was great to clean up after us. The house was aged although it was very clean and had nice updated fixtures. The beds were very comfortable, the pool was awesome and location to the beach was fabulous, it was right out our back yard and very private. Yennifer was an awesome chef, she prepared for us great breakfasts and dinners. We gave her money to buy food and she charged $35 a day for 2 meals. It was very affordable and amazing. She also assisted to all our needs, including coming to get us one night when we were lost. The only drawback was the walk in to town. It was a 15/20 minute walk but along the road was a little scary with the crazy traffic. The beach walk, we would have had to get in the water to pass through. A taxi ride was $10 and very easy to do. We got Orlando’s number right away and if he couldn’t be there he arranged a driver. We highly recommend this house for a big group. We had 8 people and it gave us all plenty of space. It was very easy to use US dollars. We felt very safe at the house and in town. One thing we learned, it is better and cheaper to arrange for excursions after you get there. Robert came by the house and explained all options. I can’t give enough praise to the staff. We loved the privacy of our own house and the added staff provided a comfortable, pampered, resort feeling. They accommodated exactly what we needed but also gave us privacy. We did enjoy their service, friendship and direction. Great relaxing, comfortable, party house!
