Bahia Residences is located inside residential Bahia de Arena, an immaculately maintained upscale private beachfront community on the western edge of Cabarete. It’s literally a million-dollar location. The beach is a fast three-minute walk and is suitable for both kitesurfing and swimming. Several good coffee shops and restaurants are also within easy walking distance, especially if you take the beach instead of the busy main road. The grounds are nicely kept, and the pool is sparkling clean. The residences are pet-friendly, though there was a somewhat aggressive resident dog running around the gated yard loose. It was nosing on our patio door and upset our dog in the morning. The one-bedroom first floor apartment was very clean, but a bit small. The kitchen is adequately equipped with a big refrigerator, a water dispenser, a nice television with sharp reception, comfortable seating, and a small table. The community has a generator, so when the power goes out (which it did), it comes back on in seconds. There is a comprehensive guest directory that is slightly outdated (some of the eateries it mentions are closed). The guest book states that you may use the tap water to brush your teeth, which we feel is reckless. Our advice: don’t. The queen size bed was just okay in terms of comfort; the mattress, linens, and pillows all need replacement. The room could benefit from a dresser or luggage rack, too. The bathroom was small, but had amazing water pressure in the shower and plenty of hot water. The biggest negative is the overwhelming amount of cigarette smoke. It’s a shame smokers take precedence over non-smokers here, even if it is unintentional, because this is one of the best locations in Cabarete. Sadly, smoking is allowed on the patios and balconies, and we happened to arrive at the same time as many smokers. The downstairs patios are designed so that you are sitting only five feet from the guests next door, and if they are smoking, their smoke is unavoidable. We had smokers in the next two units, so our stay was a constant stream of nasty cigar and cigarette smoke from the patios and around the pools. We couldn’t leave the screen door open when we were inside for the same reason. This is like the U.S. back in the 1970s, when nobody cared about lung cancer and second-hand smoke. The smoke was so pervasive, we could even smell it lying in bed at night with the windows closed. We’ve been all over the island for over a year, and this is the worst smoking situation we’ve seen in terms of disregard for non-smokers. Only the trashiest motels in North America permit this kind of smoking. It’s a great bargain in a beautiful location. If you don’t mind breathing (or having your children breathe) second-hand smoke the whole time, you’ll love it here. Personally, we would not stay here again. One more thing, the manager was oddly uncooperative and could not furnish us with a simple receipt we needed for business travel!

A wonderful location. Close to the stores, bars and restaurants yet far enough away from the bustle of town. The apartment was exactly as shown on-line Our space was very spacious and clean and modern. Our hosts Tom and Renée were welcoming and super helpful. We always felt safe and secure. Loved the pool and surrounding community. Hope to be back next year.

We stayed at Bahia Residence (BR) for 12 nights in February 2020. We chose it based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and other websites. It was excellent - and consistent with these many reviews. We booked directly with BR. The place is run by Tom and his sister, Renee, who live on site and are from Holland. They are very easy to deal with and responded promptly to all of our requests/questions, including a private taxi from and to the airport at Puerto Plata. They are fluent in both English and Spanish, so communications are also very easy and accurate. The BR Guide in our room included, in perfect English, all of the relevant information that we needed re the unit and Cabarete. As noted by others, the units and the location is excellent. Everything is maintained impeccably and works properly. The bed was large and comfortable and our room was cleaned every other day by two very diligent staff. The landscaping round the private pool is beautiful with lots of colorful shrubs and the loungers are high quality and comfortable. The grounds are in the middle of a group of say 30 to 40 private houses (which are all maintained to a similar standard) within a gated community that is policed by security guards. We felt completely safe during our stay, including on the beach and in Cabarete itself. As noted by others, it is only a 2 minute walk to the beach, a 10 minute walk to the nearest grocery store (Rosa's) and say 15 to 20 minutes to Cabarete and its many restaurants. On the beach, we could walk for more than an hour to the East (quieter) or for 25 minutes West to Cabarete itself and the largest grocery store (Janet's). Just round the corner from BR is the Cabarete Coffee Company which serves coffee, breakfast, lunches and snacks. Overall, it is excellent value, including compared to a beachfront property and we would highly recommend it to others. If we decide to visit the DR again, we would almost definitely choose to stay at BR again. Many thanks, Tom and Renee

It all started with the confirmation email from Tom. In it, he explained in detail the "where", "what" and "how" of everything we needed to know to have a great vacationing experience. Then it got better... Tom greeted us at the parking space and took us to our unit where we found everything as it had been advertised - enormous relief after a grueling four hour drive through the mountains! We will definitely try and do this again soon.

Just outside Cabarete. Over the beach it's 10 to 15 minute walk to the center. Great appartment, spotlessly clean, all the details were right. Friendly reception, close to the beach. Highly recommended.

Hello everybody, People who only have one envy : to disconnect from your everyday life because you have a sportive spirit, Cabarete si the place to be. Indeed far from the stress, this little heaven is a jewel where you can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and discover a new sport which is close to the nature. Its one or the best kite spots in the world and the best one in the carribean. Its si beautiful to be on the other side of the ocean, which looks so cold on our side of the world but is so warm once you arrive here... This sport is offered to us by mother nature, with its amazing water and wind. I opted to stay in Bahia Résidence, a family held residence. The welcoming of Tom and Renée will give you the tone of your holidays. Both are passionate about kite surfing and Cabarete. They will help you find the best restaurants, the best excursions to do and will be ready to help you with any informations you need. Its a calm, well decorated and spotlessly clean environment. You will be surprised as they will offer you their home grown coconut, avocado and bananas. Thanks so much for an amazing holiday, I will certainly come back.

This condo is perfect for couples! The residence is located in a secure private home area. There's security at the entrance as well as at the beach. It's very quiet & great value for the money. I highly recommend the penthouse for the view & space. If you're looking for a party hotel, this isn't it. This place is for pure relaxation! Downtown Cabarete is only minutes away for shopping, bars, restaurants & clubs.

My brother and I stayed at the Bahia for our annual week of kiting and fun in Feb 2018. From the very beginning, communications with Renee, the property manager, were easy and straightforward. She organized our taxis transfer from POP and was waiting for us, key in hand when the taxi arrived. We had a two bedroom unit on the second floor. The unit was spacious, fully equipped, and very clean. The staff at the Bahia were very nice. The guests were a good mix of middle aged couples and families with kids. The pool was a plus for a quick dip, but the ocean was just a short walk through a beautiful residential area. The path to the beach drops you off at an excellent spot for putting together your kite. There is even a grassy area and fresh water to rinse off your gear. We also appreciated the small coffee shop right on the main street and 2 minutes from the Bahia. We highly recommend the Bahia and will very likely be back in 2019.

Rooms and location are great ,just a short walk to all the restaurants and shopping. Tom was great but Renee would not give us the time of day, very unfriendly person should not be in the customer service industry. Would consider coming back if Tom was the only person we would have to deal with.
