1 bed/1 bath studio apartment (not hotel) with high speed 10MB/s+ private WiFi just steps from Calle Pedro Clisante with its restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. Beaches are a short 6 minute walk (Playa Alicia or Playa Sosua). You can also just hang out at the pool outside the front door. The fully functional kitchen includes a gas oven and stove-top, refrigerator, toaster, coffee-maker and microwave.

ELECTRICITY INCLUDED. BATTERY BACKUP POWER SUPPLY

The space
This one bedroom/one bathroom first floor studio apartment is fully secure in a gated community in El Batey, Sosua. The apartment is centrally located across the street from Hotel Europa, just off Calle Pedro Clisante and is a few minutes walk to the beach. In the bedroom there is a queen bed, Smart TV and safe and the kitchen is a fully functioning.

There is WiFi in the common area, plus we have reliable private WiFi in the unit with speeds over 10MB/s download and 1.5 MB/s upload. This isn’t shared WiFi for the whole building, it’s private WiFi for this unit. High speed internet in Sosua isn’t cheap, and there are several places that offer WiFi; however, in those places you’ll be lucky to text and email. At my place you can stream content and have full connectivity. With over 10MB/s, you will be able to function as if you were at home. Whether you need to catch up on work (God forbid) or just want to download videos and content, the WiFi speeds in the unit will be faster than most of what you’ll find in Sosua.

We have cold A/C and instant Hot Water and everything you will need for nice weekend, week or month or more away in the DR and ELECTRICITY IS INCLUDED for short term rentals. For long term rentals you will be billed separately for electricity based upon actual usage.

In addition we have backup power supply that allows for the appliances and electrical outlets to continue running even if the power on the street fails. It's not uncommon for the power to go out for minutes or even hours at a time, and so we have installed a backup battery power supply that will provide between 5-8 hours of uninterrupted emergency power to keep the WiFi, fans, refrigerator and the lights on. Please note that because of the power usage, the A/C unit and instant hot water heater will not work during an outage, but you will not be left in the dark.

While power failure in the DR isn't an everyday event, it can happen for brief periods of time. The backup generator makes it so that you are not impacted by temporary outages. Finally, the generator is powered by rechargeable batteries so there is no noise when it kicks on.

You will find iPhone/iPad/android charging cables and plugs available for your use in the unit as well as an international power adapter for visitors from the UK and Europe. The DR uses US type plus, so if you are traveling from North America, you have nothing to worry about. You are welcome to use the chargers and adapters, just put them back where you found them so they are available for the next guest.

The apartment is the perfect size for an individual or a couple. No kids please.

If you would like to rent for more than 60 consecutive days, please feel free to make multiple reservations. For example if you’d like to rent for 90 days, you can make a 59 day reservation and then consecutive 31 day reservation.

I want you to manage your expectations when you visit...This is my home with a full kitchen, pots and pans and a TV (no cable) that I rent out. It has everything you need to live for 3 days or 3 months. It is not a hotel and does not have all the amenities that a hotel includes. If you want a hotel with daily housekeeping and all the services, please book across the street at Hotel Europa. You will pay approximately 2x the price to book there, but you will get your towels changed every day. Guests who are looking for a home stay experience with weekly housekeeping and a pool just outside the front door will love it here. If you are looking for room service and hotel perks, you will find yourself disappointed.

I want you to know what you are getting with my place and most importantly, I want you to have an amazing time and come back again.

Where you’ll be

Sosúa, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

Condominium Plaza Sosua 2 is far enough from the noise, but close enough to the action. Calle Pedro Clisante is less than 30 meters (100 feet) away, and there is a bar and restaurant across the street at Hotel Europa.

As you take a right on to Pedro Clisante, you’ll be greeted with the sights, sounds and smells of the Dominican culture from barber shops, and nail salons to restaurants, bars and night clubs. There is a mini mart just around the corner where you can get all your essentials and just about any cuisine you desire for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are shops for clothing, souvenirs and just about anything else you may want. During the day, it’s pretty laid back, but once the sun goes down, the neighborhood comes alive and stays up all night.

As you reach the end of Pedro Clisante, there is a road that goes to the left that is lined with shops and restaurants, and it will take you down to Playa Sosua (Sosua Beach). Once you reach the beach you will find dozens of additional restaurants and shops. There are two entrances to the beach (one at either end) and a couple of entrances/stairways that lead down from Route 5 (the main road through Sosua). If you have a car you can park on the road and walk down to the heart of the beach. At the other end of Playa Sosua, there is a local neighborhood where you can get a feel for the Dominican culture and get a great meal at a reasonable price (not that there is anyplace in town that is all that expensive).

In general the town is a safe place to walk around, but it always make sense to exercise good judgement. If you are flashing cash and an expensive cell phone, you can expect some extra attention. When you go out to the disco at night, bring just what you need with you and leave the rest at home. A little common sense goes a long way.

Touching on practical maters, there are two supermarkets (I use this term loosely when compared to supermarkets in North America and Europe) within walking distance, and a laundromat directly across the street from the Condo complex, so don’t feel like you need to over pack.

Please take some time to look over the maps I’ve included in the listing to get a better feel for the neighborhood.

During your stay

When you arrive you'll be met by my assistant who lives nearby. Her team will get you set up and will be available in the event that there are any problems.

There is a weekly cleaning included. Additional cleaning service (including laundering sheets and towels) is available for US$ 20 or RD$ 1000 per cleaning. This is my cost, and I don’t make any money on the cleaning fees. Simply let my assistant know when you want cleaning and she will schedule a time.

My assistant and I are available via the AIRBNB app or WhatsApp as well if you have any concerns.
