Response from Gabriele:

Dear Elish, one reason for " "manicured grass " which basically is the regular local grass cut - is that long grass attracts mosquitoes. We would have to spray and we do try to avoid that.
Most of our guests appreciate a well taken care off garden and park. I am sorry you don't, also because this is a lot of work.

As for the lights: I was never aware that maybe one lamp did shine in one of the apartments. We never received any complaint and as guests like to walk to the beach also in the evenings they are happy with the gardening lights.
I do understand that guests have different tastes and wonder why you havnt said anything. We have staff 24 hours and it would have been easy for the doorman to put the light off.

All best, Gabriele

Baoba Beach consist of different kinds of apartments right on the beach in
a secluded bay. No tourists, no all-inclusive, all nature, sand, palm
trees, the sea and the amenities we offer like a pool, tennis court, common
spaces to dine among others.
There is a very small village close by ( Cabrera is about 15 minutes away )
where locals live. Dominicans are peaceful, happy people and we NEVER had
to face a security or other problem. My children go horseback riding in the
village, buy a Coke in the local grocery store and have friends in the
little wooden flats where the locals live ( a few minutes away from the
gated community ).
This is part of what some guests call " paradise ". Others may not
appreciate the beauty of this country, the nature with just palm trees,
tropical flowers and sand beach with its calmness so much but rather look
for busy centres.
I did have some communication problems with Lauren as she changed the
booking dates a couple of times without informing me before. Maybe she ist
used to a different kind of places and handlings and Baoba didn't suit her.
Clearly so this is NOT a questionable neighborhood.

As for the doggy, yes Coco barked that one night, I admit. She is a puppy
and my son who she is very attached to had just left, I guess she was sad.
Also, she was locked as I didn't want to bother guests with a dog on the
land and being a baby she wasn't used to that. Sorry about that.
