Hurricanes & Holidays
The 2017 Hurricane Season is, fortunately, almost now over. For the Caribbean and Southern States of the U.S. it will be a year remembered for the two most destructive hurricanes we have experienced for quite a while.
Many of the Caribbean islands popular with winter vacationers are not going to be open for business and even areas of Florida will do well to have recovered in time for the winter holiday season.
Fortunately, the Dominican Republic, a popular country with North Americans and Canadians, survived relatively unscathed. Yes, there was damage to crops, due to high winds and excessive rainfall, and some of the inland communities subject to flooding have suffered, but the coastal tourist resorts escaped and are ready to welcome vacationers as normal.
Dominican Republic Vacation Rentals specializes in condo and villa rentals on the North Coast of the country. We have an excellent selection of properties in the town of Cabarete. Beachfront condos, as well as those within a few minutes walk to the beaches. Cabarete is world famous as a center for kiteboarding and windsurfing and all the facilities are on your doorstep.
Villas are also available here and in Cabrera. Cabrera offers a different style of holiday in a town unspoiled by tourism. The accommodation is in fully staffed private villas. No cooking, cleaning or mixing your own drinks. Chefs, bar staff, and maids are on hand to attend to your every need.
In Puerto Plata we offer condo rentals at the very popular Playa Dorada Resort, in the Riviera Azul and San Marino complexes. Here you have immediate access to the Playa Dorada Golf Course, shopping mall, restaurants, beach, and watersports. The Dominican Republic’s 3rd largest city, Puerto Plata, is only some 15 minutes away and well worth a visit.
In Samana we offer condos and villas in the Puerto Bahia complex with its boutique hotel and first class Marina. Guests here have full access to all the facilities of the hotel. There are swimming pools, bars, restaurants, gym, spa and tennis courts.
Puerto Bahia is a superb location as a base to explore all the Samana Peninsula. During mid-January to April you can also enjoy the spectacular visits of the Humpback Whales who return each year to The Bay of Samana to mate and rear their young.
Booking with Us
Many of our properties you can also find on VRBO, AirBnB, and TripAdvisor. You are welcome to book via these portals if you prefer to do so. Booking direct with us will save you their fees though. These can add 12% to 15% to the cost of your vacation and we do also offer weekly and monthly discounted rates to clients who book directly with us.
Reserving your vacation rental with us is easy. Just choose your preferred accommodation, select the available dates and submit your booking request. We will immediately contact you to confirm availability and rates.
On a final note, if you are planning to vacation in the Dominican Republic we recommend you book your flights early. There are only so many flights and seats and with limited destination options we anticipate an increase in bookings this winter season. So make sure there are flights available before you book accommodation.
