Description

The space

Please also check out our other listings if this particular listing is not available. Just click on "View all listings" on the left side on my profile page.

Our property with about 1 acre is located in a well known residential area on the hillside above Sosua. We live in a 7 bedroom villa on the property. The room for rent has a good size and a private bathroom with hot water shower, a walk-in closet, Queen size bed, ceiling fan, Cable-TV, free WIFI-Internet access.

On our property we want to be as independent and self sustaining as possible. In daytime we produce therefore our own electricity with solar panels to run the whole property - especially all high energy consuming devices like well/pool pump, etc. Also most of the hot water is produced with a efficient solar water heater.

With having an ecological home we can not only help the environment - we don't even need to restrict the use of electricity when others have to while there is a power blackout (which happens unfortunately more often in the Dominican Republic than in other countries).

Guest access

Our guests have access to our whole property and all amenities.
People love to sit outside, use one of the covered terraces - one with a dining table for up to 10 people and a lounge area. Of course you can feel free to do a workout on the gym-equipment, hang-out and sunbathe around the huge pool or relax in the garden with tropical plants and flowers on our 4100sqm property. If you come with a vehicle you can also use our parking lots on the property.
You can order your breakfast and/or a delicious 'À la carte'-meal from our private chef, Altagracia - if you don't want to eat out or cook by yourself.

Interaction with guests

Our lovely holiday room with private bath is a beautiful and quiet but still affordable solution for up to 2 people that want to stay in a tranquil location with beautiful surrounding which is still close to the center of town.
We also live in our villa on the property, so we can help you with every question you might have!
Come as a stranger - go as a friend!
Meanwhile enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle...

The neighborhood

The neighborhood where our property is located is a quiet residential area, primarily owned by expats, close to the town center. In this area are a few small restaurants and 'Colmados' - simple supermarkets where you get basic things, but you can also sit down and have a drink there. Most of the night-life, bars and restaurants you find in the center of Sosua - about 2-3km, 1.5 miles or 5 driving minutes away. In the same distance there are supermarkets, banks and last but not least different beautiful sandy beaches like the main beach between Sosua Los Charamicos and Sosua El Batey with many souvenir shops, bars and restaurants where you can rent a sun-chair or just eat a delicious local meal or fresh fish...
Having a rental car or scooter would be nice and convenient , but is not absolutely essential. The main road, the town center and beaches are still in a walking distance (about 15min. to 30min.), but of course you can also call a taxi or just jump on a 'Motoconcho' - a motorbike taxi. They get you there in 5 minutes...
The town and beaches of CABARETE are world famous for Wind- and Kite-Surfing and only about 15km, 9,4 miles or 10-15 driving minutes away.
There is always a nice ambiance especially in night time when having dinner under palm trees on the beach or party and dance to local and international rhythms in one of the beach bars.

Getting around

The Gregorio Luperón International Airport, also known as Puerto Plata Airport (POP) is located about 6km outside of Sosua. From or to the airport you can take a taxi. Cheaper public transportation is only available on the main road outside the airport areal.
When arriving to Sosua by bus, you can take also a taxi or motoconcho, depending on your luggage.

Our second time around with Chris and his wife. Excellent. Chris upgrade us to a bigger room and we had a great time. They are a great host. My lady and his wife are friends and they keep in touch. They are like family. The pool is great, was in it every day. Our last day there Altagracia, the wife gave us a ride to the bus terminal and made it on the nick of time. We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed another two days. Can't go wrong the Chris and Altagracia, excellent host. Plan on coming back.

Chris and Alta Gracia are absolute TOP hosts. We spend a wonderful Christmas with them and the other guests. Communication before our arrival was super easy and fast. From the moment we arrived at their house, it felt like home away from home. The room was very clean with cosy bed, lots of storage and a great bathroom. Guests can use the kitchen, fridge, pool, terraces anytime. Ah, oh, we made good use of that :-) For Christmas, Chris suggested to go to Cabarete to a little hut by the river ... we will never forget that Cocoloco xmas. Big thank you to Chris&Alta Gracia!

My boyfriend and I stayed with Chris and Altagracia for almost a week and had a fabulous experience. The house itself was beautiful, spacious and well kept. The garden, pool and neighborhood was pleasant and inviting. Though what really made this stay so wonderful was the incredible hosts- They made us feel incredibly comfortable and welcome in their home. They were generous with their time and resources- offering us rides when they went into town, inviting us on a night out and even to attend Chris' birthday dinner! We were given fresh mango juice (from the tree in their yard) everyday and felt almost at home after a day. Besides that, staying in Sosua was great- the beaches are close and easily accessible, the restaurants were fun and inexpensive and the people were all very nice- even if you can't speak much Spanish.
