Here we offer a cozy one bedroom apartment/gusthouse with separate entrance for short- and long-term rent.

It has a size of about 484sft (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.

Guest Access

Our guests have access to our whole property and all amenities.
They 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 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 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

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 15min. to 30min.), 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.

Getting around

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.

  • "Come as a stranger - go as a friend." We certainly did. Our apartment was just as described in the listing; cozy and spotless, complete with internet and everything we needed in the kitchen to cook with. Chris and Alta were gracious and accommodating hosts, ready and willing to do whatever they could to make us feel at home.

    Upon request, Chris drove us to and from the airport, and gave us a mini-tour when we arrived, even taking us to the supermarket to get some food.

    Communal areas were kept tidy, and provided a great opportunity to meet and converse with other travelers. When we left it was like saying goodbye to old friends/family.

    I would recommend staying at any of Chris' listings to ANYONE. Especially those looking to vacation outside the common-place hotel or all-inclusive resort and get to know the country from those that understand the culture, the places, and the people.

  • Chris and Altagracia were wonderful hosts who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were very helpful in answering any questions we had. They even invited us to a birthday party they were hosting at the property!

    The private apartment was very comfortable, clean and had everything we need. Would definitely stay again

  • Chris is a very nice and helpful person, he was friendly and brought us from and to the bus station.
    The apartment is clean and functional, however we found it very dark because the windows are small and not ideal for intimacy because there are no glasses in the windows (but with very efficient mosquito nets!!).
    The pool is great and a big table welcomes you for sharing moments with the other occupants.
    In our opinion this apartment is not ideal if you want to be on your own for a longer stay, but if you want to meet new people and don't spend much time at home than it's a nice place!

    Response from Chris:

    On our property we have windows - called "persiana" - installed made out of wood which are very commune in the Caribbean for a better cooling and air circulation inside the building. With closed glass windows, you get a "greenhouse"-effect - means, rooms heat up a lot and because of the tropical humidity things start to get/smell moldy - with our windows we don't have this problems.
    The size of our windows in the bedroom are 4 x 3 feet (120 x 110cm) and 2 x 3 feet (60 x 110cm). Also in the living room there are two 4 x 3 feet (120 x 110cm) windows installed. This is actually an US standard size for windows and should be therefore big enough. If you open up the curtains you will also get more daylight in the room...
    We hosted many guests in our cosy apartment in the past - short and long term, singles, couples and families. All had fun and enjoyed it talking with us or other guests on our big terrace, but still had enough privacy in their apartment and even found a spot on one of our other terraces or in the garden of our "small" 1 acre (4100sqm) property...

  • The Dominican Republic will retain the beautiful memory of the location where we were ... Not really missing anything and the hosts were "super" available in everything from pick us up, to accompany us to get to know the city, shopping and much more ... Although a bit far from the center, the apartment can be reached by any means! An unforgettable experience!

  • I have traveled a many places in my years, however my vacation in the Dominican Republic was by far one of the best places that I have vacation. Chris and his beautiful wife were a lovely couple, very accommodating and they went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied with our stay. Chris was kind enough to pick us up at the airport and return. It was a short drive to the cottage, and when we arrived we were quiet pleased with our accommodation. The cottage was very private and secure, with its lush tropical atmosphere, beautiful setting,and secured estate in no time We felt very comfortable and settled. Chris & Alta, his wife was absolutely amazing, excellent host and worked very hard together to assure that their guest were well taken care of, they included myself and my friend in on a very impressive dinner there at the cottage where his wife Alta was the chief and the hostess, I was so impressed with their team work. They helped us to understand the language which was a little difficult at times to understand (spanish) however they made our stay more pleasant and by the time we were ready to leave we felt like we had a friend for life. I would recommend Cosy Apartm. to anyone that is interested in a pleasant stay with good people who are genuine, great hard working couple, you will feel like you are at home. I must say that I am not much of a big dog lover, there are some dogs there, however they are harmless, and a joy to be around. Thank you Chris, you are the best! Keep up the good work, I will see you on my return trip.
    Merry Xmas and a Happy New year!! Sylvia & Carlton

  • It was very nice to spend the weekend in this pretty apartment. The place was very clean, complete and harmfull. We really loved the peacefull of the place!
    We apreciate very much the attentions of Chris and Altagracia during the stay and we felt like home. Thank you and see you soon!

  • I loved my week with Chris and Altagracia. They are the most gracious hosts and have a beautiful house, with plenty of room for everyone. The place was full of guests from around the world and you felt completely welcome and at ease. Crazy Russian dominos had a lot to do with the loser drinking. I was there to close on a house I bought in Sosua and enjoyed the sharing of knowledge from Chris and Alta. I highly recommend this wonderful place to everyone looking for a relaxed time in Sosua.

  • Chris and Alta are great hosts. The cottage is very comfortable and the swimming pool and sun deck are awesome. The furnishings were very good quality. The location was away from the city noise of Sosua so it was very peaceful. Chris was willing to arrange for car/scooter rental. Chris arranged to have a masseuse friend do massages for us at the cottage. The massages were great!

    We will be booking additional stays with Chris and Altagracia in the future and we have already used Airbnb to book a trip in April to Indiana.
