“Superb 2-bedroom apartment, close to the beach”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The 2-bedroom apartment was fantastic, with everything in good condition, and lots of conveniences included (cable, wifi, drinking water). The location is also ideal for anyone wanting to be close to the beach, and Gorditos Fresh Mex is just around the corner!!
Both the owner and manager were extremely helpful, ensuring everything was as it should be.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Summary:
Highly recommended and exactly as described.

Location:
The unit is on the second level of a three-level, six-unit "pod" in the middle of a modern, secure gated complex called Ocean Dream. Ocean Dream is situated in the west end of the town, just slightly outside the most built up part and occupies a section of property running from the main street down to the beach. This is a highly desirable situation in my view.

Walking time to things:
Beach: 1.5 minutes
Grocery store: (Rosa's) 5 min
Gorditos: (very good reasonably priced mexican take-away/verandah) 2 minutes
Cambio: 4 minutes
Bakery: 7 minutes
Other nearby restaurants: 3-6 minutes
Beach bars, restaurants and board rentals 5-10 minutes
Scotiabank ABM: 15 minutes?

Administrative:
Condo is managed by its owners who live outside of town. The owners, as you can tell from the other reviews, are good people. This becomes obvious when you start to interact with them. They are responsive and helpful and serious about what they are doing.

The apartment:
The apartment is in perfect condition and finished to a higher standard than many principal residences. The only thing it is missing (and I believe this is the case with all the two bedroom apartments in OD) is an oven. I used the good sized toaster oven when this was required. The kitchen was fully equipped with just the right number of implements, yet not so many as to be cluttered. Ice, drinking water and a few other nice-to-haves were present on arrival.

There was lots of room for family of four to stretch out, and none of the accumulated stuff clogging up drawers and cupboards, that one finds in some rentals. AC is fully functional.
The unlimited (North American calls) VOIP phone and robust WiFi proved most useful. I particularly enjoyed the comfortable recessed balcony overlooking the lush garden and pool. With table and chairs, gas grill and a sofa, it was a perfect place to relax, have a drink, read a book.

Sounds great, all of this, but probably the best reason to rent this apartment is the owners: Bob and Pat. They know everything about Cabarete and share their knowledge, both interactively and through a comprehensive guide they have assembled on the essentials of the apartment, and Cabarete in general. For the standard airport transfer rate, ($35 that we would otherwise have paid a taxi) they met us at the airport and took us grocery shopping! (came into the store with us, pointed out good deals, suggested items we might or might not need, helped us find things...) It was this service sealed the deal for me.

I unreservedly recommend this property.

Where do I begin? The warm welcome from Bob and Pat the owners? The perfect place for kite surfers? The feeling to be like home in the condo? First of all, we chose to go to Cabarete for the kitesurfing; no wonder about it. It is THE place to go if you're a kitesurfer. But now, we can say that the condo is THE spot to stay if you go to Cabarete. We felt so comfortable, it was what we expected - not to say dreamed! - about a relaxing place to stay. Despite the condo is so well situated (just 5 minutes walking distance on the beach from the condo to the restaurants on the beach and the center of Cabarete) we preferred to stayed at the condo, enjoyed the calm, doing bbqs on terrace. We felt very very safe; there is a security guard in front of the gated community and also on the beach. The complex is very well maintained (garden, pool, etc..). The condo itself is perfect: spotless, very cosy, quiet... Pat and Bob are very helpful, if you need anything they will do all it take to please you. They are so charming! Yes, people like them still exist! There is a locker room to put your stuff; my husband putted his kite, board, etc, in that locker. It was very convenient for him. Bringing all his stuff to the beach was very easy: the condo is REALLY one minute walk distance to the beach. We can't wait to go back.
N'hésitez surtout pas à séjourner au condo de Pat et Bob. Ils sont d'une attention extrême et sauront vous mettre à l'aise instantanément. Mordus de kitesurfing, c'est LA place!
