Room - Cabarete Beach Penthouse

Apartment - Private room · Calle Paseo del Sol, Sosua, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

The Space

Room in a spacious apartment in a gated community. 7 minutes to center of town by car, motorcycle-taxi or public transportation. It's a 60 minute walk on the beach.

You can feel comfortable using any of the living areas (balcony, living, dining, roof terrace, kitchen) I'm a pastry chef, so my kitchen is big and well equipped.

We have our own private beach as a front yard. Want to cool off? There's a pool too!
Internet, hot water, washer and dryer, private parking, all in!

Like to run? The trail towards town changes from sand, to shady old roads, from 'caliche' to grass, to asphalt, to sand... you might even encounter some cows and horses around.

Crossfit? We have a crossfit gym 5 minutes away! I'm a very active person, and let me tell you there's always something to do out there... surf, windsurf, kite, paddle, canyoning, river rafting, you name it, we have it!

There's also facilities for renting a bike or motorbike nearby. Public transportation is right outside the community gate.

Nightlife? Just head into town!
Don't feel like going into town, don't want to cook? Natura Cabana is 50 meters walking barefooted on the beach. They have a great restaurant that serves breakfast-lunch-dinner, spa (massages, facials, all you need).... AND most importantly, yoga while the ocean waves splash in the background.

Looking for a quiet spot, but still near the action? Look no more. You're right here.

  • We had a wonderful experience staying with Llesyri. Her place is beautiful and the location was ideal for us. We prefer things a bit more laid back and really liked that her place was nestled between Caberte and Sosua. It was very easy for us to walk down the end of the road and catch public transportation to each of those towns when we wanted to have a bite to eat or nightlife. Llesyri was great at giving us the low down on all the tips and information we needed, and even helped us organize an amazing horseback riding trip in the mountains.

    Her apartment is very safe with many layers of security so we felt very secure during our time there. The highlight of her place was the veranda which literally looks right out to the ocean. We spent a lot of time out there relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze and view. One thing that is not Llesryi's fault, but worth mentioning, is it may be very hot in the bedroom depending on the time of year you're visiting. I am more used to tropical climates but my boyfriend isn't and it was difficult on a few very hot nights to sleep because there is no air condition in the apartment (we were there in late March and were told a few of those nights were unseasonably hot). We don't regret our stay though and meeting Llesyri and her family enhanced our positive experience of a lovely first vacation in the DR.

  • The room was great and the place is steps from the beach. Lleysri and her family are very nice and accommodating. Only issue one might have is the place is a 5-10 minute drive from Cabarete. Since my friends and I had a rental car it was perfect for me though.

  • Easily the best place I've stayed at! Big, open, airy, quiet, tons of light, amazing view.
    Llesyri is an awesome host, willing to give an advise or help with anything.

  • Our visit was very short, we stayed only two nights in Cabarete. Llesyri's apartment is very stylish, comfortable and close to the beach. We really enjoyed running barefoot on the beach just before we got on the plane to get back to the Michigan winter.
    In the city there is a lot of great restaurants, just 5-10 minutes away with car from Llesyri's apartment.

  • The apartment is awesome! It is a stylish place and everything is as described. It is such a beautiful place with the beach in the backyard and the surf spot Encuentro in walking distance!
    Llesyri was a great host, she knows all the places to be and it was a pleasure to meet her. I really enjoyed it to stay at her apartment and can only recommend it.

  • Llesyri is an amazing host and extremely accommodating; She is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. The room is a great size and has it's own bathroom. Not to mention, the bed is extremely comfortable and comes with clean sheets! The place is right on a beautiful private beach and has a spectacular view. My original plan was to travel around the DR but I ended up extending my stay as Llesyri's place had everything I needed. If you're not looking for an all-inclusive resort and want to experience Sosua and Cabarete, then this is the place for you.

  • Llesyri and her place were awesome.. I rented a room but basically had access to the whole place. This penthouse was clean, gorgeous and just as pictured. The pool, beach, and ocean are literally in your back yard. This is a VERY safe gated community with lots of great scenery..

    You would definitely not be disappointed

    Response from Llesyri:

    Thank you Thomas! Very safe as in "I couldn't even get in!" Hahhahahah
    Hope to see you again in Cab!!!!

  • Great host! Great apartment close to the beach. I can only recommend it, if you are looking for a mixture between hanging out and action.

  • We had a great time staying with Llesyri in her beautiful condo. She was a wonderful hostess and gave us some great suggestions for food and transportation around Cabarete. The condo was clean, well designed, had a private bathroom within the room, and is located next door to affordable yoga, an amazing restaurant, and spa. We would definitely recommend a stay with Llesyri.

  • Llesyri is an unique person, we sooo enjoyed to be part of the house. Perla Marina is simply beautiful, we really appreciated the magic of the natural beach and the Atlantic Ocean in the front yard ;)
    Your desserts were just delicious, Llesyri!! Anyway it was hard to leave!! Actually we felt like being part of the furniture ;)
