Second and third bedroom share a bathroom accessible from the hallway with a tub and shower.
The open floor space has a galley kitchen open to the living room and dining/seating area at the entrance of the house. A 360 degree wrap around porch gives ample space to dine and hang out in a shaded area all day. Ceiling fans keeps things cool in the main area of the house and on the back porch. We love art, we love colours and a casual atmosphere.
Kitchen is functional and offers all you need to cook, bake, prepare drinks… or have a hired cook do it for you.
The house has a washer and dryer and our housekeeper "Ana" will be happy to take care of your laundry needs. The machines are not accessible to guests. We don't supply sports equipment but will be happy to help you if you want to rent instead of flying with your own gear.
Interaction with Guests
We have an on-site office on the premises. Mark can be found there every day except Sundays. You can also leave a note with Ana if you need anything and Mark is not available at that moment.
A short stroll through the exclusive neighbourhood gives you access to the most coveted launching spot for kites in Cabarete Bay, on Bozo Beach a few hundred yards west of Millennium Hotel and Andari Spa. Guests can use the tennis court next door at Cabarete Beach Houses at Nanny Estate for a small fee. The kite schools of Laurel Eastman and Kite Club are within easy walking distance. Cabarete Coffee Company operates a coffee shop at the entrance of the property. Onsite office assists with anything from tours to restaurant reservations to baby sitters and whatever else is needed. Mark is there to help.
You can rent a car and park it at the villa, but you can have a barefoot vacation too… town center is but a stroll away (fifteen minutes give or take along the beach), motor bike taxis are always available outside the front gate (60 cents one way to town, change needed - they don't have any), a taxi ride is US $6 to town.

We absolutely had a lovely lovely time in this gorgeous pad! It is big , spacious and airy with lovely light Caribbean decor. My two daughters loved the pool we loved the close proximity to everything.... A stones throw away from the beach - a convenient ten minute walk on the beach to restaurants. Erika , Ana and Moreno were lovely and attentive and very responsive to all our requests. One little issue with a clogged sink but it was rectified professionally and straight away. Thanks Maria et all and hope to see you next year
Our group had a wonderful time up there for the Jazz Festival! The house was beautiful inside and out. The pool lights were a great feature along with the sundeck! The house was a 2 minute walk to the beach. It was great to walk down the beach to the all the restaurants and bars. Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful home!
We're 5 young adults from Montreal that just came back from a trip in Cabarete, where we stayed at Bay Villa 1 in a lovely neighbourhood called Bahia de Arena! Starting from the entrance where the guards are very kind to the gardner and maid who stick around the house always making things pretty.. everything was perfect! We had liked this house right from when we saw it on airbnb, but it looked so much better in real.. freshly painted with vivid colours, refined decoration, great features and great location! The 2 rooftop look-outs allow great sunset views, but main level balcony is where they had us, amazing set-up: table, 6 rocking chairs, a fan and a light.. what more for a competitive game night! We loved everything about the house: modern, spacious, full kitchen/living room, clean and comfortable rooms, good WIFI service, big pool, great lot (best piece of land in Bahia de Arena), actually 2 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes away from downtown Cabarete (where you'll find all the restaurant and bars). In the end we had one issue with electricity and it was fixed right away.. we appreciated the quick and reliable customer service always on site. Thank you for allowing us to feel at home for a week, we absolutely loved our experience, we will be back shortly! #BESTHOUSEINTOWN
