I had a great time thanks to Riin and the fabulous possibility to choose between staying in Cabarete and the small Village Buen Hombre. Riin helped me a lot to make the best of the vacation! As kiter I clearly recommend Buen hombre, not Cabarete.

Wow, what an amazing time I had at your place(s). I loved Buen Hombre, it's such a special place. If you fancy a holiday away from commercial tourist sites and packed beaches - stay with Riin in Buen Hombre! Fantastic people, atmosphere, food, kitesurfing and dancing. The hosts are really caring and especially if you want to learn kitesurfing you will benefit a lot from them. i had such a great time staying with you guys! Thanks so much!

Riin's place is a 20-minute walk from the main beach in Cabarete. It is spare and economical but comfortable. The shower runs only cold and the bathroom was poorly lit but clean. There was no signage outside and I walked past the place several times without realizing it. A neighbor had to direct me. No one was home when I arrived and I had to wait half an hour, although Riin (who was very friendly and welcoming) had sent me a message while I was traveling which I couldn't access because I hadn't been able to get online. The kitesurfing lessons were $160 for 3 hours. It was fun but the instructors' English was extremely limited. I found out later that there is a surf camp up the road that does package deals and offers free breakfast and dinner and is closer to town. I think I would have gone there (or stayed on the beach) if I could do it over.

Thanks John! it is a good thing to once in a while receive guests who say at the arrival , "wow it is another world from Haiti!!" John is one example of a person who is using Airbnb and is not modernly connected. and at the same time expecting hotel service. I ask John as everybody always a day or two before time of arrival and most of the guests are modern enough to be connected to the internet at least once a day to let us know about the arrival time as it is essential, we have businesses and cannot be in the house waiting- just an arrival time and good look at the map has worked for 99% of the people :) also our house outside wall was just freshly painted and the name and number are up again. also internet is available everywhere and for free, even outside the house, the guest network works without password to contact when needed! just need to know how to use your own phone. Also it is normal to call or send a message while on the route and we are always happy to help and even come to meet or pick up if needed! John told me something quite shocking though- "you're running a public establishment"- and i would be happy to explain this to everybody- no, our place is not public establishment! it is a private villa, all reservations are pre approved and screened and there are no walk ins from the street and this is also a reason that for it is a private club for many people who want to become kite-surfers or are kiting already, these people gain the most as we have a lot to offer between the 2 best locations in the Dominican Republic for kiting! we take care of our people, we have many trips and tips available for all to make most out of the stay! Also we have a few people around always to meet new people and share the time and many friendships are made! For me John seemed as not the happiest type of person and actually with the review he surprised me as all of this would have been great to communicate in person! :) honest and straightforward people get attention , things are made better, and are always taken care of in the best possible way. as to him as a history teacher- it is good to know the past but better to live in the present! take care and have more fun!

Riin has done an amazing job of renovating this property in ProCab, Cabarete. Our room was a rustic, yet modern "grass hut" overlooking an idyllic tropical paradise with pool. My wife called it 'glamping' or glamorous camping; perfect for the young traveller or the young-at-heart baby boomer like us :)

I would highly recommend the place only for people interested in kitesurfing. It's good private house with shared living space and possibility to switch with the place in Buen Hombre for kiting. Be aware that washer has additional costs.

Response from Riin:
Thank you Denys, yes it is notified in the description that the laundry includes a small extra fee as the plumbing and electricity are very much more sensitive in DR than in many developed countries, it is not possible to let people use the specific machinery like washing machine and water pumps by themselves. Sorry for some of the noise as we were constructing the new guest house in the other side of the big property, it is ready and finished now. The big floods some time ago prolonged the building process. Also some notes for you. You did book a room in a villa and all was available to use but you stayed in the house many days in a row without going out and working in the common area, which in your room, it would have been quiet and also more comfortable for other people not to have to consider you working in the middle of the living room every day for the whole day long. You also had the big house for you for a few days. Also i was disappointed that i was not notified about several broken glasses and cups and a water boiling pot which was ruined without me finding the pieces. I think you are a nice person but it would be great to respect the host a bit more and communicate any changes and problems right away. and yes, you are welcome back to learn kitesurfing with us!
