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).
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 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.
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.

Chris & Altagracia were great! We had a very nice stay. The house is exactly like the photos. The house was very nice, clean, and very spacious. Our bedroom w/ its private bathroom was quite comfortable, clean and cozy. The house is located 5-7 min drive to Sosua Beach and and 3 min drive to El Batey, in which there are tons of different restaurants to choose from. We will most likely come bk if we're in Sosua!
We just finished a 2 week stay with Chris and Alta and even though we have been to DR many times before, it was our first time staying with them.
They were such great hosts and the rooms were so clean and comfortable, we actually felt like home for the 2 weeks we were there. We would like to stay with them again on our next visit.
Alta even prepared a delicious meal for us, equivalent to a 5 star restaurant.
The location was perfect and very safe - close to supermarkets, restaurants and an amazing beach that we spent many days on. Minutes away by car or taxi
I stayed with Chris and Alta for a month and couldn't have enjoyed my time more. The room was clean and comfortable and the closet was huge which is always good for a girl with a lot of dresses. The house is roomy and is surrounded by beautiful nature. I enjoyed my walks in this neighborhood and to the beaches in Sosua. As hosts, Chris and Alta are vey warm and hospitable and we have become friends during my stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Sosua and looking for a pleasant and comfortable place to stay.
I had a great time here! Great accommodation's and nice relaxed host's...my only tip is to stay in contact with Chris upon your arrival incase you need directions etc....have fun in D.R!
We were with Chris for 1 month for our first month of retirement. We really enjoyed our stay. We made wonderful new friends, and shared amazing foods prepared right in their home. The beach was 2 miles away but we had easy access by the moto concho (taxi bikes) which we enjoyed. His home was very tranquil, restful, and the grounds are beautiful.
