About This Listing
Cosy, small apartment with separate entrance next to our villa, big covered terrace and pool. Located in a quiet neighborhood, just about 1.7miles (2-3km) from town center and beaches.
Like our whole property mostly powered by solar energy!

We live in a 5 bedroom villa with 2 apartments/guesthouses with about 600sqm (6458sqft) in total on our 4100sqm (1 acre) property.
Here we offer a cozy one bedroom apartment/guesthouse with separate entrance for short- and long-term rent.
It has a size of about 484sqft (45sqm). The bedroom with queen size bed has a ceiling fan, bathroom with hot water shower, kitchen with stove and big fridge, living room with cable TV and FREE Internet access.
On our property we want to be as independent and self sustaining as possible. In daytime we produce therefore our own electricity with solar panels to run the whole property - especially all high energy consuming devices like well/pool pump, etc. Also most of the hot water is produced with a solar water heater. With having an ecological home we can help the environment and have the advantage of having electricity even when there are power blackouts (which happens unfortunately more often in the Dominican Republic than in other countries).
Our guests have access to our whole property and all amenities.
People love to sit directly outside the apartment, use one of the covered terraces with a dining table for up to 10 people and a lounge area, sunbathe around the huge pool or relax in the garden with tropical plants and flowers on our 4100sqm (1 acre) property. If you come with a vehicle you can also use our parking lots on the property.
You can order your breakfast and/or a delicious 'À la carte'-meal from a private chef (Altagracia) if you don't want to eat out or cook by yourself.
Interaction with Guests
Our cozy apartment with private bath, kitchen and living room is a beautiful and quiet but still affordable solution to people that want to stay in a tranquil location with beautiful surrounding which is still close to the center of town.
We also live in our villa on the property, so we can help you with every question you might have!
Come as a stranger - go as a friend!
Meanwhile enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle...
The neighborhood where our property is located is a quiet residential area, primarily owned by expats, not too far from the town center. In this area are a few small restaurants and 'Colmados' - simple supermarkets where you get basic things, but you can also sit down and have a drink there. Most of the night-life, bars and restaurants you find in the center of Sosua - about 2-3km, 1.5 miles or 5 driving minutes away. In the same distance there are supermarkets, banks and last but not least different beautiful sandy beaches like the main beach between Sosua Los Charamicos and Sosua El Batey with many souvenir shops, bars and restaurants where you can rent a sun-chair or just eat a delicious local meal or fresh fish...
Having a rental car or scooter would be nice and convenient , but is not absolutely essential. The main road, the town center and beaches are still in a walking distance (about 20min. to 40min.), but of course you can also call a taxi or just jump on a 'Motoconcho' - a motorbike taxi. They get you there in 5 minutes...
The town and beaches of CABARETE are world famous for Wind- and Kite-Surfing and only about 15km, 9,4 miles or 10-15 driving minutes away.
There is always a nice ambiance especially in night time when having dinner under palm trees on the beach or party and dance to local and international rhythms in one of the beach bars.
The Gregorio Luperón International Airport, also known as Puerto Plata Airport (POP) is located about 6km outside of Sosua. From or to the airport you can take a taxi. Cheaper public transportation is only available on the main road outside the airport areal.
When arriving to Sosua by bus, you can take also a taxi or motoconcho, depending on your luggage.

Ja die schöne Zeit hier bei Alta und Chris war doch sehr schnell (website hidden) geht der Alltag wieder los, aber auch diese geht schnell wieder um und wir starten aufs Neue. Bei Alta und Chris haben wir uns wie zu Hause gefüllt, es war alles so wie wir uns das vorgestellt hatten. Alles ungezwungen und frei, wie es eigentlich immer sein sollte. Die Unterkunft war sehr gut wurde regelmäßige gereinigte was wir schon anders erlebt haben. Auch sonst war alles vorhanden was zum wohnen hier notwendig war, hat was gefehlt haben wir uns es selber besorgt oder Chris war behilflich. Alta ist eine sehr gute Köchin, was wir auch genießen konnten. Auch bei dem Radunfall meiner Frau haben wir hier eine Hilfsbereitschaft erlebt die nicht selbstverständlich ist. Wir wollten eigentlich nächstes Jahr wieder hierher, aber leider ist die Wohnung in der Zeit schon ausgebucht. Ist sehr schade, aber egal wo wir im nächsten Winter wohnen werden, hierher werden wir auf jeden Fall herkommen, um Hallo zu sagen. Ein Danke an Alta und Chris. Sí un gran tiempo aquí en Alta y Chris era todavía alrededor muy rápidamente. Ahora todos los días vamos de nuevo, pero esta es rápida para volver y empezamos de nuevo. En Alta y Chris hemos llenado hacernos sentir como en casa, todo estaba tal como lo habíamos imaginado. Todo libremente y con facilidad, ya que debe ser. El alojamiento fue muy buena se limpia con regularidad lo que ya hemos experimentado de manera diferente. Todo lo demás estaba presente lo necesario para vivir aquí, lo que ha faltado en que lo miró a mí mismo de que se trate o Chris ayudado. Alta es un muy buen cocinero, también pudimos disfrutar. Además, en el caso Radu mi esposa hemos experimentado una amabilidad aquí no es evidente por sí mismo. Queríamos quedarnos volver el próximo año, pero por desgracia, el apartamento ya está reservado en el tiempo. Es una lástima, pero no importa dónde vivamos el próximo invierno, aquí sin duda vendrá a saludar. Gracias a Chris y Alta. Yes a great time here at Alta and Chris was still around very quickly. Now everyday we go again, but this is quick to get back and we start anew. At Alta and Chris we have filled us feel at home, everything was just as we had imagined. All freely and easily, as it should be. The accommodation was very good was regularly cleaned what we have already experienced differently. Everything else was present what was necessary to live here, what has been missing we looked at it myself concerned or Chris helped. Alta is a very good cook, we could also enjoy. Also, in the case Radu my wife we have experienced a helpfulness here is not self-evident. We wanted to stay back next year, but unfortunately, the apartment is already booked in time. Is a pity, but no matter where we live next winter, here we will definitely come to say hello. Thank you to...
Awesome experience!!! It's was my first time in the Dominican Republic and me and my son will definitely return.. Chris and Altagracia both were extremely welcoming and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable.. The house reflects the picture it was safe and quite perfect place to get away from the craziness of New York.. The beaches and restaurant was a bit further but taxis were available all the time..
I would definitely recommend this location..
La pasamos muy bien en casa de Chris y Altagracia, Mamá Alta, como le decimos ahora, una mujer increíble, super alegre, atenta, de buen corazón, nuestra primer amiga de República Dominicana.
Estuvimos alojados más de un mes, cenamos muchas veces juntos, nos presentaron muchos amigos y siempre estuvieron atentos a cualquier cosa que necesitaramos. Incluso Alta me llevo al hospital muy tarde en la noche cuando jugando al fútbol me rompí la rodilla, una genia. El apto esta muy bien, la residencia es muy segura en un barrio muy tranquilo, un poco lejos de la playa y el centro de la ciudad, pero nada que no puedas solucionar con un motoconcho o alquilando una pasola (scooter) por usd90 la semana aproximadamente.
Tienen 4 perros, Chuky, Diana, Kira y Chucho, todos divinos, eso si, cuidense de Chucky porque en un ladrón de comida haha.
Seguiremos en contacto con Chris y Alta, y por que no disfrutaremos de una cerveza con una bachata de fondo al mejor estilo Dominicano.
I had a great stay at Chris's apartment! Everything was simply perfect! The apartment was exactly like in the pictures, very clean and comfortable. Chris and Altagracia were very exquisite hosts, always helpful with suggestions, insider tips etc. I went to Sosua alone, it was the first time I was travelling by myself, but I was never alone there :-). Chris and Alta introduced me to friends, they were also so kind to invite me to a trip to many different - and very beautiful - beaches, which I wouldn't have ever seen, if I stayed in a resort or in a regular hotel like many tourists from Europe do. The neighborhood is also very safe and I always felt like being a family member.
I thank Chris and Alta for this great, relaxing vacation. I also want to give a special thank to Alta, who - I dare to say - is the biggest hearted person I ever met in my life.
I highly recommend them to everyone! I will definetely come back.
Chris & Altagracia were delightful hosts. It was great to be picked up from the airport and have someone to quiz about the local area. The apartment is just what I expected and it was perfect for my stay. The house is in a beautiful, quiet area with amazing views and a large communal outdoor seating area by the pool. I also enjoyed the company of the other guests and of the 3 dogs. It is a little far out of town if you are not planning to hire a car, but there is nearly always someone going into town who will give you a lift. I will definitely be back if I return to the Dominican Republic!
