ProCab is a best neighborhood in Cabarete for villas and houses. It is safe, enjoyable to walk, meet many local people and also interesting travellers. There is a great restaurant in the complex and more.
Motoconchos are the best! they take you for less than a dollar anywhere in Cabarete.

Respect for each other. This is our home and we love to share it with you and hope you treat it nice.
Thank you for not bringing extra people for the night or to the house without letting us know!
My friends and I had a great time in Cabarete and Riin was a terrific host! We could not have asked for better.
Her home is beautiful, welcoming, and we felt very safe walking around the neighborhood and to the beach at night. Her pool is the perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach.
Thank you, Riin! Hope to see you in Buen Hombre soon!
What a wonderful experience! Riin knows the island well and is very helpful and accommodating to everyone. The kite surfing in Buen Hombre was fantastic and the lessons were helpful. The highlight of my trip was wakeboarding out to paradise island and snorkeling there, but there's so much to do in the Dominican Republic, and the people are so friendly that I wish I could have stayed another week.
Rin and Micky are VERY sympathetic. They are joyful, interesting and love sharing their life with others.
The first night, they invited us for dinner in a tiny local restaurant that we liked very much! By the way, we recommend the sangria!
We also had a fantastic lunch together as it was raining outside. We all prepared dishes from our countries.
They also propose kite trips in buen hombre. We couldn't go but we heard all the best about it!
The house is well described. Great neighborhood. The only thing is that the shower is not hot. But I guess it is a question of time as the hosts are still working on the finishing touches of the house.
Wonderful place to stay! Riin and Mickey made us feel at home. They have lots of great tips for exploring the area. There was an amazing Dominican welcome dinner our first night. The bed is perfect. The shower only has cold water at the moment, but that's not a problem in the warm weather. We had a great powerkite lesson. It was too rainy for a kitesurflesson. But next time we're there we'll definitely stay with Riin and Mickey again to get kitesurflessons! We recommend staying with Riin and Mickey.
My girlfriend and I went with Riin to Buen hombre to try kite surfing for a few days. Buen hombre is a gem if you like to travel in off-the-beaten-path places. I believe the five tourists that Riin was hosting at the time were the only five tourists in the entire village. It was truly special. The kite instructors were great (I got up on a board after 4or 5 hours of instruction), the locals were friendly, and the views were beautiful. The seafood was caught same day and the authentic cooking was amazing. Best fish I've ever had. The conch and octopus salads were also amazing. The hotel was simple so dont expect luxury. Note this review is solely for buen hombre. We didn't stay in cabarete due to lack of wind. Thanks riin! We hope to come back soon.
Riin and Miki are super nice couple. They know everything about the area and are a great choice if you are looking for a real dominican experience. The house is undergoing renovation and you can tell they put a lot of heart into it. They run a kite surfing school- so good deal if you want to try it out. We enjoyed our 5 days at their place a lot! Def recommended.
