“Great place, I'll go back”

Micheal's house is beautiful, and the three studios are perfect. The one I had is the smaller and the kitchen is tiny, but I could manage. However go for the other 2 studios if you'll cook a lot. There is a little market in Costambar but you could go in Puerto Plata for a real supermarket. The beach of Costambar is beautiful. A lot of expats, retired people, dominicans, a great mix. Few restaurants around so you don't have to go in town.

Michael and Berta are sympathetic, so is the dog (if you're afraid of dog,you wont't be of this one). Nice landscaping, beautiful pool and my favorite: the little terrace on the roof!

I will definitely go back.

Gracias Michael y Berta y nos veremos pronto!

“Wonderful studio with fun activities!”

Spent a week here in February 2014 and had a marvelous time! The studio is great, fully and nicely furnished, and located in a walled garden. Very conveniently located within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, a grocery, pharmacy, etc. Michael is a fantastic host and also offers tours to his guests. We took three tours of the surrounding areas and loved each of them! Michael does a great job at showing the country-side, explaining everything, and making each day special. These private excursions are much better than the large package tours and I recommend both the studio apartment and the tours to anyone looking for a great time in The Dominican Republic!

“Bachelor Apt in Clean, Private and Quiet Home within walking distance to Beach.”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Although quite modest the suite apt was clean, private and safe in this private family home, located steps away from the Beach. Walking distance to all other amenities....restaurants, grocery store, bank and pharmacy. Michael and Berta were extremely friendly and helpful. Would I return....Absolutely. Hope to see you soon.
