This studio is located on the first floor of a 2-storey family house with just 4 units. It offers you a spacious terrace with pool view. Equipped with ceiling fan, screened windows, TV, a small kitchenette and bathroom.
One of the best locations in Costambar, very central, quiet, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden and just 100 yards from the main beach. All amenities of Costambar like beach bars, restaurants, gym, golf and tennis course and grocery stores are in walking distance. We, the owner family live on the property and take care of you.
You have full access to the pool area and the relaxing garden pavilion. We can provide you with a free bicycle within Costambar.
Interaction with Guests
You want to organize a barbecue night at the pool side, a kayak tour on the beach or an excursion to the waterfalls? Ask us the owner family we live on the property and we will assist you. We provide you with lots of information regarding the surrounding touristic attractions. We also organize individuel tours and airport transfers with our private car.
The cable car to Mount Isabel is certainly worth a half day excursion. Another half day tour could be the area around the Puerto Plata central park with nice Victorian style buildings and the old fortress in the harbor. Ocean World is just a 5 minutes taxi drive away.
We have a taxi stand in Costambar and a public transportation on the Costambar entrance gate, just a 8 minutes walk from the property.
The poolside is for clients living on the property, visitors allowed on request. No overnight visitors allowed. Smoking is allowed on the terrace.

Michael and Berta were both very nice accommodating. Michael speaks English and so communication was easy. The room was comfortable, fresh, stocked with everything you needed from, pots and dishes to tissue paper and towels. The room we had was very very close to another room, where we could often hear them coming and going and talking and therefore am sure that they could do the same. We were out of the room quite often so this wasn't a major problem for us. The environment was beautiful. There is a large dog that is unchained out front, which could frighten some, but we are dog lovers, so this was not a problem for us and never gave any problems. I was able to cook a nice breakfast with items we picked up from the mini market conveniently located nearby. We felt safe. Very nice habitation within walking distance to the beach. Would highly recommend! Thanks Michael and Berta.
Michael was very nice and made sure to spend some time speaking with us on our arrival. The room was as advertised in the photographs. The porch area overlooked his beautiful garden and pool, which were very nice and well kept up, our favorite part of the rental. His dog "Blackie" was seriously the man. He greeted us every time we arrived with a wagging tail and what I would like to think was a smile.
The location yielded easy access to taxi drivers and local restaurants (within Costambar) and was very close to the beach. Unfortunately we arrived right after local holiday and the beach was not very clean for our visit.
The only drawbacks: we wish we had been informed that toilet paper wasn't included with our room so we could have better prepared for that, though he did give us a roll when we ran out. Also, he charged us a little more than a taxi driver would have when he gave us a ride to Playa Dorado.
Over all, Michael and his family were very kind and welcoming and we greatly enjoyed our stay in Costambar.
I felt very welcomed at the Villa. Michael was extremely helpful with any of my questions and needs.
The photos are accurate, the Villa is beautiful. The property is surrounded by plenty of green, making you feel secluded in your own private area, and just outside the entrance gate, the beach and restaurants are only a couple of minutes walk.
The neighborhood is very safe and the people who live in the community are very friendly. You can take a motochoncho to the supermarket if you prefer not to walk the 10 minutes. Personally, I enjoyed walking to the supermarket. There is also a taxi stand which is about a 5 minute walk to, which can bring you anywhere that you wish.
The room itself, has everything you need: wifi, kitchen, shower, tv, and ceiling fan. The pool is wonderful and at the very top of the home is a terrace with an amazing view of Costambar.
The beach is nice and for 100 pesos you can rent a beach chair for the day and there are plenty of palm trees mixed within the beach area which provided shade if needed. My favorite was walking the beach in the morning and having a coffee or drink at the quaint little restaurants along the beach at sunset.
I spent three weeks here and would return again without hesitation. I highly recommend this Villa.
The reservation was canceled 60 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
If you want to be in a safe and quiet environment, Michael's place is the place. my fiance Kenneth and I were picked up at the airport. we lived first in one of the smaller condos. but moved to the big one. house and garden is as beautiful as in the pictures, if not nicer. we always felt safe, both in the house and around the beach and in the rest of Costambar. the apartments are very clean and well maintained, there is everything you need from kitchenware etc. electricity and hot water always. and Michael and his wife Berta was very accommodating and was always ready to help for questions etc. on our last day, Michael drove us to the next destination. we can only give michael our best recommendations. and assure you a comfortable stay with an authentic host.
Thank you so much for your nice comments. We wish you all the best for your long journey to Guatemala and we want to let you know that we really would be glad meeting you and your boyfriend once again here at our property or elsewhere in the Dominican Republic.
Michael and Family
Michael welcomed me to his home and took time to show me his property and tell me about the neighborhood. Unfortunately he had to do some work out of town so I did not see him for most of my stay. The studio suite was exactly as described and the property was in great shape. I enjoyed the pool a lot as it was very hot and humid this trip. The beach which was very close was not busy at all as it was the off season there. I enjoyed a great meal at a nearby german restaurant that Michael had recommended. I would highly recommend this location for anyone wanting a quiet stay near to the attractions of Puerto PLata.

I live with my family in Puerto Plata since 22 years. We live on the property and we are here to make your stay unforgettable. Our aim is to have happy guests who are looking forward to visit us again. We know all the surrounding attractions of Puerto Plata and we are ready to share them with you.
I love travelling all over the world but I am always happy to come back to my own tropical retreat steps away from the nice Costambar beach.
