Interaction with Guests
Because I am not always on the island, our house manager, Barbara, is the person you will see most often. If I am in the DR, I may stop by and say hi!
Cabarete is lively, with lots to do every day and night. There are restaurants, discos, shops, and more. The beach is a really long stroll!
Barbara can provide you wit the names and telephone numbers of reliable taxi drivers. You can always take a motoconcho (125 cc motorbike taxi), but that can be a harrowing experience!
Other Things to Note
The water from the faucets is NOT drinkable. It is fine for bathing, but not for drinking, unless boiled for 5 minutes first. So, be safe and have bottled water only!!! Trash should be brought down to the first floor bins, which are outside. Ramon can show you where!
First and foremost, relax and enjoy your Caribbean vacation. There are only a few things that we ask. Take care of the studio as if it was your own. Cleaning service comes once a week. If you wish to have additional service, it is $12.50 a day and may be arranged through Barbara. (No cooking services provided.) ALWAYS lock your doors and NEVER give anyone else the codes to the building, for your safety. Leave your valuables at home and do not carry more cash than you need when you go out. DO NOT DRINK THE TAP WATER---USE BOTTLED WATER ONLY! Have a good time!
Perfect spot right in the center of town, and the listing was everything I had expected and more. Allison made me feel very comfortable when I arrived, the condo was clean with snacks in the kitchen, and a manual with helpful instructions for the condo and the neighborhood.
Alison and her assistant Barbara were great hosts! The appartement looked exactly as shown on the pictures. It's very new and located directly at the beach - you can hear the ocean while falling asleep! The view over the whole bay at sunset is amazing. All main restaurants are in walking distance, which is very comfortable.
We also had a rental car and the provided parking lot was also very secure and guarded (we left our whole kiteboarding gear in the trunk).
Both Alison and Barbara were very helpful and responded quickly to mails. We can definitely recommend the appartment and would book it again.
Alisons's apartment in Cabarete is Great. It is very new and completely equipped with anything you need form cooking tools to satellite tv. It is on the top floor on Morning Breeze building directly at the Cabarete beach, so you have a beautiful view of the bay.
I met Alison straight away when I arrived and she even brought me some delicious local fruit to make me feel welcome. The maid came every week and did a great job cleaning the apartment. From the apartment it is only 4 min walking to Janet's (the big supermarket) and EZE bar (a great lunch beachbar) is located right next to apartment. The Morning Breeze building is very safe, with entry codes and a guard. I would certainly come back
The host Alison was amazing ! I contacted her and she picked me up and drove me to the condominium. She is very friendly. Speaks multiple languages and has knowledge of the local community. Cabarete Morning Breeze is a new community directly in front of the ocean. The property, amenities, staff and grounds are first rate. The studio is equipped with a nice modern kitchen with all cooking essentials. The bathroom, living and sleeping areas were spacious. The internet and cable connections were great. The view from the balcony is stunning ! The ocean is at your balcony. Private access to the beach is yours with beach chairs and food\beverage services. Barbara ( her assistant ) provided ultimate transport service and was very friendly and helpful.
