About This Listing
This nicely decorated 3-bedroom, 3-bath condo (N-1) awaits you at The Victorian Luxury Beachfront Condominiums. N-1 is a well furnished oceanfront, main floor unit adorned with local art. Slide open the two sets of sectional glass doors of the expansive lanai and bring the outdoors inside. Enjoy the sound of the Atlantic Ocean’s surf and marvel at a beautiful Caribbean sunrise and colours of the evening sky...
… it doesn't get better than this! You and your guests will want to move here!
The master bedroom… wow! A four-poster king bed, ensuite bathroom (Jacuzzi tub and shower) and walk-in closet. The second bedroom (queen bed) has a 3-piece ensuite bathroom, with twin beds in the third bedroom and a guest bathroom close by. All three bedrooms have AC for sleeping comfort on those warm tropical nights. Maid service is provided with light cleaning twice a week, and weekly for linens and towels. The kitchen is well equipped for your cooking and dining needs and includes a microwave, toaster, coffee maker and more. Cable TV, DVD and internet are provided.
The infinity pool, sun-kissed whirlpool and well cared for gardens at The Victorian, plus kilometres of sandy beach are all yours to enjoy. You are a 15-20 minute walk from the heart of Cabarete and its beachfront restaurants, bars and shopping. A local taxi or “moto concho” will get you there in minutes. This vibrant village on the north shore of the Dominican Republic is a 25 minute scenic taxi ride, east of the Puerto Plata airport.
No smoking inside or outside on private lanai
Accommodates up to 6 people

So many great things to say about this home and Kevin and Francine.
* Impeccably Clean
* Great Location, close enough to town to be convenient, far enough away to be peacefully quiet.
* Security was reassuringly evident yet not in your face, just blending in the background
* Huge Space, and I mean huge.
* Very comfortable Beds.
* Water Cooling Station
* Beach front Property.
* Hosts always on hand close by if needed.
The only thing I would say to new guests arriving, is bring supplies, or be prepared to go to the supermarket located close by for your supplies. There is really nothing in the home, no paper towels, salt, dish washing liquid etc. No starter kit provided, although there was toilet paper.
Although there was AC in all of the bedrooms (and it worked very well), there is no AC in the living room/common area rooms.
This was a great experience and we would certainly consider this home again on our return trips.
My parents stayed in Condo N1 for almost a month, while I joined them for two weeks. We really enjoyed our time there and could not have been happier. The condo way very clean and well kept. Twice a week it was cleaned by the staff. They did a great job and were always very friendly and helpful.
The kitchen was spacious and all the hardware we used was fully functional. Don’t know about the dishwasher since we never used that.
Air conditioning in the bedrooms was also working nicely and the beds were really comfortable. Always had a good night’s sleep.
The pool area was nice too. Very clean, right in front of our porch and just steps away from the beach. It was simply perfect.
Kevin and Francine always responded quickly and took care of the few issues we had (e.g. Wi-Fi connection).
I can really recommend this place to anyone. Thanks again and we’d love to come back one day!
First off, I'll say that overall this is a lovely place, a great location, and a wonderful value if you'll be traveling with a larger group as we were.
The pros: the place is as expansive and furnished as pictured. The common areas are large and comfortable as is the furniture, the porch is amazing, the kitchen is large and functional, the bedrooms are a comfortable size with tons of storage, and the bathroom arrangements are great. The place was clean and is as well kept up as a salty, windy location allows. Being steps from the beach was fun for our family and being a little out of town was preferable since we wanted peace and quiet. The pool and lawn are great and there was plenty of pool furniture.
The cons: a number of things were not functional. The salt takes a toll and while we sympathize with that, it did impact our stay. The biggest issue was the dishwasher, which we didn't discover to be non-functional until Saturday evening. With a group of six and preparing most of our meals, this was a huge hassle and we hand washed loads and loads of dishes ... not fun on vacation. Upon arrival, the wifi wasn't working (but Kevin resolved it nearly immediately) and we found out after asking that the laundry is not in-unit. There is free laundry, but it's shared with the whole complex. The beds are sized as described, but rock hard so it's not a relaxing sleep (mattress pads would go a long way). The DVD player is frozen and wouldn't open, so we weren't able to put on the movies we brought along for my young nephew.
Something to be aware of is that this unit (N1) has the complex pool directly in front of it. This wasn't a big issue for us as most of the guests were respectful (we had one issue with music being played loudly), but with different clientele present, this could be quite different. It also means that there's no ocean view out from the unit. Not a big deal, just something to know.
Kevin and Francine were both friendly and helpful. They were there when we arrived and mostly available when needed. Their office hours (understandably) are limited on the weekend, so be prepared for that if arriving on a Friday and really thoroughly check things over when you arrive in case you need anything taken care of.
So again, overall we had a lovely stay and the place is as described, but with some mechanical issues that will likely be resolved soon. We'd stay there again, but would ask about some mechanicals in advance.
This house is our home. Francine, Kevin, and their staff have really made us feel part of a community, despite the fact that the beach is just steps from our front door and the town is so quaint, making the entire experience feel like a vacation even for an extended period of time. We're happy we rented from them!
