Condo Vista Mar was gave us the authentic experience we were looking for. It had the best views in Sosua and the open layout allowed lots of natural light and airflow. The chef Chris provided was one of the best parts of the trip. Definitely won't be even considering a resort next time in DR.
Thanks Chris and team for making our stay a pleasant one!
It was an amazing stay. Chris is the person you want to choose for your next vacation. House was amazing, there was a blackout in the whole city and we where the only ones with light. Its close to everything beaches, shops, supermarkets, bars and nightclubs.
Chris was very responsive and met us at the apartment on time. The apartment was clean and supplied with the basics. It could use a trash can in the kitchen. The apartment was accurately described in the listing. Chris was very responsive to our needs and I would definitely rent from him again.
The views were on point! the Apartment was close enough to walk to Restaurants and far enough to get some quiet rest. Chris is an awesome host, and very Attentive! He is truly under charging for his part of piece of paridise in Rep. Dom. I have been visiting Sosa since 2008, and Rep Dom since 1973. Had I known about his property before hand, (in 2008) I would've been here long ago to relax! Thank you Chris for an awesome Vacation stay at your property!
Chris was a great host and the penthouse is fantastic. The view was great, it was comfortable and clean. He was always very quick to respond, I would highly recommend.
Chris was a great host and absolutely accommodating and responsive! We felt very welcome and well taken care of. The 3 bedroom is very spacious and the views really are stunning. The walk is a bit treacherous to the beach and driving around can be harrowing. The kitchen has basics but did not have an oven or dishwasher and the electricity and internet went out almost every day (despite Chris trying to fix the internet). The beach had great snorkeling and fresh pina coladas! Definitely recommend this place if you want a great host and are not looking for the "all-inclusive resort" type of experience!
Thanks for your nice review, I just wanted to response and make things a little more clear.
Our penthouse is located a bit up the hill, so when walking 100m stairs down to the beach means that the hard part is then you have to also go up again... ;-)) (of course there is the option to take a motochoncho or taxi).
The Dominican Republic is still a developing country, where many things are different from the USA or Europe, e.g. the disorganised traffic and every day power failures in all parts of the country. To provide electricity 24hours for our guests, We have installed an power inverter with battery backup in our PH! I guess I tryed to explain that to avoid to drain the batteries to fast, some power outlets in the kitchen are not connected to the inverter, where high engergy consumtion devices like microwave, laundry machine, etc. are plugged in.
Like we mentioned already in our review, we hope you will be back here soon.
Chris & Altagracia
The place was magnificent and amazing... The view was spectacular and three bedrooms and bathrooms for 89 dollars a night is a great bargain... I would definitely stay here again and Chris was great!! I broke my key at five in the morning and he was there within five minutes to let me in... The place is spectacular and a bargain and very safe... I absolutely loved it...
