Response from Riin:

Thank You for the good words.

I would suggest to communicate beforehand for any questions and directions and additional tips for surfing, kiting and more, this has always worked with all the people for one yea and a half as you are coming to a different culture and language situation which can be difficult and misleading. We have been able to avoid many problems for people not to overpay , not to spend too much time in transitions like you did from Santo Domingo that took the whole day and usually is only 3 or 3.5 hours for people to drive from Santo Domingo to Cabarete. For first time visitors driving in Dominican Republic long distances is really not worth the hassle as the public long distance buses are absolutely great with inside movies, WIFI, air-conditioning and they are faster and safer than people drive, the cost is from Santo Domingo to Cabarete around 8 USD!!. Inside Cabarete cars are not necessary in any direction as the parking is not good and moto-taxis cost less than 0.5 USD to anywhere inside Cabarete and this is the way most people live and move in Cabarete with or without kite gear. :) if you stay longer the best way to maneuvre between windsurf, kitesurf and wave surf beaches is to buy a moto which you can find for 200 USD and still stay in the nice house areas with big gardens and pool and later sell the bike for same value. For shorter stays to rent a moto also makes a lot of sense if you do not enjoy walks as the different beaches are spread out and best kite beaches (the beach in the centre is also good) depending on the season are away from the centre.
Just to ask these few things would make it much easier and less costly to discover a country and town that might be different from your own.
I wrote a bit more in hopes that people who read this, get some accurate valuable information from it.

Kite lesson value offered is around 35 USD , which is of a more value than many times the price paid for one night stay, i think it is a cool additional gift we offer to people staying with us.

As far as instructions, in the past more than a year and a half this was the first time anybody had problem finding the place. You guys, could not already find the way out of Santo Domingo and arrived instead of noon time at 11 at night being lost on the way much before arriving to Cabarete or our place... :).. So very possibly you might have a bit problems with directions, checking them before or you might have been overly tired by this time of the night to find the place as this has never been mentioned before :) And the directions here are accurate on the map. Also Villa Buen Hombre is in Google maps and easy to find.

i tried to contact you on several occasions like most people ask and discuss things before arriving so we can help out with best advice how to get to Cabarete and to the place and what we can offer and more, but unfortunately there were no answers from you the day before your arrival and the day of the arrival to even have an idea in the end if you were still coming or what time as you had not arrived by 11pm and i knew you were supposed to arrive in the morning to Santo Domingo.

Also people who might drive a lot, especially living in US , it could take you longer walking than other people? :) which your time estimation is a lot overestimated. For most people it is a short, less than 10 minutes walk only inside the complex as the beach is right across the road from the gate. The distance is 800 meters from the house to the beach exactly, now it depends on what is your walking speed? :)

As far as the kite launch locations there are several in Cabarete and in Cabarete the beach changes every half a year and so change also the best place to launch , which there is a kite school and wind surf school right in front of our development which you probably were not aware of and again it is only 800-900 meters from the house.

With best and see you soon in Cabarete!
