Relax in our peaceful tropical gardens.
Our compact guest house/studio is set in the gardens of our own home next to our pool.
The studio comprises a living/kitchen/bedroom with seperate bathroom, and a shady terrace area with a table & two chairs for al fresco dining. Sun loungers & pool terrace furniture are available for you to use if you wish.
We are located in a quiet, international neighbourhood in the hills behind Sosua. There are two mini-markets within easy walking distance where many expats meet daily to have a cool drink & chat.
There is a restaurants within walking distance, although if you wish to cook for yourself we have a bbq & your studio is equipped with a modern gas stove/oven.
The town of Sosua itself is a five minute drive away, there are many local motocycle taxis & public taxis which can take you into town at very reasonable cost.
In Sosua you will find many restaurants, bars & beautiful public beaches. The town is renowned for its' night life & we will be happy to advise you of the local hot-spots.
We are only 15 minutes away from Puerto Plata International Airport & will be only too happy to collect you from the airport & drop you off at the end of your stay with us for a nominal fee of $20 each way - airport taxis charge $35.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in one of the most historic areas in the Caribbean, at a truely budget price we believe our home will not disappoint.
In response to many questions - the bed in the guest house is a DOUBLE BED despite the pictures showing a single.
Our advice to people looking to fly down here is to fly into Puerto Plata (POP) airport, not Saniago (STI). Although we are only 40 miles from Santiago, that portion of your trip can take longer than the first 2,000!. We are only 15 minutes from our local airport ...
One of our guests took 6 hours to get here from Santiago!
We had a great time. Mark and Louise were great hosts and really introduced us to the DR. We got the experience of what it's like to live in the DR not just be a tourist. We made two new friends.
Mark & Louise were very helpful and open to any questions being asked. They are such a lovely & nice couple. They helped us out ALOT throughout the stay with helping information to travel DR. We loved the set-up of the guest house, perfect size. I also liked the fact it came with pots & pans b/c I love eating breakfast. The guest house is equipped with everything you need! Whenever we visit DR again, we will definitely stay here again! Thanks again Mark & Louise!
Great place to stay.
AMAZING place to stay in Sosua :
- independant house, clean and calm
- perfect swimming-pool, very nice tropical garden
- good area, closed to a supermarket/bar where you can meet people, and closed to the town
Louise and Mark are fabulous hosts, patient, sensitive and... funny!
Excellent experience, thanks so much!
We never expected hosts to go so far above and beyond hosting as Mark and Louise did. They picked us up in town and greeted us like long lost friends, and it never stopped. They gave us privacy, but were readily available. They taught us about the tarantulas, the colmado and a few other choice things never to be forgotten. The Guest House was just as they describe it, the new terrace is an excellent chill out spot; we loved it. The pool was perfect. Mark and Louise, your sensitivity and love of people will make your Guest House a successful one.
I had an excellent time staying with Mark and Louise. The guest house and pool are great, and they are wonderful hosts. When you stay there, make sure to try Louise's cornish pastries and meat pies.
I absolutely love Mark and Louise! They were fabulous hosts. They were more than helpful, more than patient with us and our late night arrival and very welcoming. I wish our stay was longer! There isn't a word in the dictionary to describe the value for this place. I feel like it was almost free. The area alone is exquisite. The beach is Sosua is breathtaking. It is a short drive from the 27 waterfalls and to an amazing Catamaran cruise to Punta Rusia. These were 2 of my favorite things on my entire trip. I will recommend this place to anyone going to travelling to the area. It was magical including relaxing in the pool and watching the supermoon. The guest house had everything we needed including a safe. It was very clean. The pictures are not accurate, it is much more beautiful in person. I absolutely recommend this cute guest house. I hope to return soon. Thank you so much! We will have beautiful memories to last a lifetime.
Very good deal all round, excellent Host and Hostess, very nice place and area, very sociable and helpful people thanks mark & louise
Me and my husband went there for a long weekend.. we had such a great time! the house is really comfortable and they have a nice pool.. the garden is beautiful and they have two dogs so funny and friendly, zorro and tequila.. :) we would love to go back! is near the beches and the house has almost anything you could need... Mark and Louise are really nice people very friendly and they give you all the privacy you need...
My sister and I stayed one night with Mark and Louise and it was a perfect experience. They are very friendly and hospitable people while still allowing their guests privacy and independence. They were always available to us if we had any questions or needs. The guest house kitchen is fully equipped and there's a corner store within walking distance if you need to buy any extra cooking ingredients. The morning we left, Mark even invited my sister and I to catch a ride with him out of town- which gave us a much appreciated jump start on our traveling that day. I wholly recommend staying with them, and intend to return myself.
