What can I say, loved the place. 2 minute walk to bars/restaurants (30 seconds if you’re hungry or just can’t wait to get your hands on an ice-cold bottle of presidente). 5 minute walk to center of town...you’ll be happily distracted during that walk...and you can walk to the beaches. If you like to cook or have someone cook for you then you’ll love the mini kitchen...it’s all new, the whole place is new! And the swimming pool...spent the last hurricane chillin’ in the pool...crossing my fingers, doesn’t get any better...even Shadow, John’s dog, will take a floating ride on a pool chair, you’ll love the dog. Of course, to round it up, John’s a great host to throw back a few beers with and talk DR - and if you happen to get sick I know first-hand he’ll make sure you the medicine you need...thanks again for that John. Will be back in 2018.
Hands down the best Villa rental in Sosua. Everything is new including the two big screen tv's. One in the bedroom and one in the living room. Centrally located, friendly staff, and very clean. The owner John showed us around and was very helpful. Had an abundance of hot water and brand new air conditioners. I Highly recommend Casa de Compai.
Quality at its best! Casa de Compai Condos are situated in a beautiful intimate setting, secure and tranquil. Delightfully furnished immaculate apartments, surrounding the impressively landscaped courtyard and pool area.
John, the owner, has put his whole heart and soul into creating a home away from home, and so much more for all his guests. Each condo is fully equipped for you to have an extraordinary self catering vacation, as well as top of the line wifi and TV's with a ton of channels for when you just need to chill...literally.... in a fully air conditioned space.
Yes, yes, yes, just love this place! Only wish it had been built sooner so that we could have hosted a family gathering here a number of years ago! I wouldn't have had to worry about a thing. My guests would have had everything they needed all in one spot.
Of course its all about location and Casa De Compai is within easy walking distance of grocery stores, an abundance of cafe's, and restaurants, and of course the amazing Sosua Beach. Its also a short bus ride or taxi to the other famous kitesurfing Cabarete beach.
John is a very kind, respectful, hands on owner,and its easy to see that he wants your stay to be the best experience. Would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here long or short term.
I stayed the months of December 2017 an January 2018 at the Casa de Compai. I had developed a friendship with John (the owner) on a prior visit and we stayed in touch. I have been to Sosua several times and stayed at different hotels an condos in the past. So, when I returned on this visit I stayed at John's newest venture the Casa de Compai.
The "Casa" as I like to refer to it is conveniently located. There is a new Supermarket, Pharmacy and Dollar Store within a 3 minute walk to the east. The night life and club's are within a 5 minute walk to the west. So the "Casa" is in a quiet residential neighborhood, but still within walking distance to anything you may need.
For those of you that have never visited Sosua, the town is known for partying. This is great but when you leave the party atmosphere it's so nice to come home to tranquility. When you enter those big blue gates at the "Casa" it's Peaceful and Relaxing.
John and his staff are absolutely amazing, they will go out of their way to make your stay Enjoyable, Safe and Relaxing. John is an American Patriot who loves America and he also loves his new "adopted" country the DR, just ask him he loves to talk about it:) I believe it's admirable that John has invested 100% in his dream. I've seen first hand the concern he has for his guests and employee's. You see that was the other part of John's dream, to provide good jobs to hard working people.
Bottom line the "Casa" is Conveniently Located it's Clean, Safe and Secure. Great value for your money, give it a try you WON'T be disappointed!!!!
Had a fantastic time clean accommodations great resort like grounds. John was most accommodating and helpful for the duration of me stay. Great spot to relax very quiet not far from almost everything in sosua.
Stayed here for one whole month in early 2018. The place is amazing!
Casa de Compai is a condo complex consisting of nine units. Units 4-9 were recently finished in December 2017 and are thus brand new. They all share a pool with a shower and a BBQ as well as high-speed wifi, a power backup generator, a water filtration system and much more. Units 1-3 were finished in 2016, i believe, but are still state of the art. Unit 3, where i stayed for one month, is the biggest condo, with 2 bed rooms. I loved the place and can absolutely recommend it.
Here are a couple of the reasons why:
a) Location: The location is great as it's located directly at the end of the "party mile" of Sosua. You can walk anywhere but it's still quiet at night. To the center of the party mile in 5 minutes, to the main beach in 10 minutes, to a shopping mall with farmacy, supermarket, currency exchange and more within 3 minutes, to the next hospital (direction of Cabarete) in 8 minutes. Two banks within 3 minutes. A tip from me: Use banco progresso for withdrawing money, the daily maximum there is 30.000 DOP instead of the usual 10.000 and the fees are only 150 DOP.
b) Security: The condo complex is gated with 24/7 security personnel. Each condo has a safe and the doors inside the condo are usually lockable, too. This condo #3 in particular has a balcony facing the street and the security guard.
c) Furnishing: There are bed rooms, each with a queen sized bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan, TV and lots of room to store your things. One of the bedrooms has a safe. The kitchen resp. living room is spacious and has everything you need for preparing your own meals.
d) The little extras: Each condo has a personal 5 mbps WiFi which is more than enough for streaming Netflix and the like. The TVs have a "Kodi" entertainment system with Live TV, Sports TV, Netflix, Youtube, Movies, TV Shows and much more. An on-site maid service can be purchased which will clean the condo for 700 DOP and do laundry for 50 DOP per pound. And if you're an animal person, the best extra is probably "Shadow", the adorable little black dog, that watches over the condo complex.
e) Hospitality: This is what makes the place special for me. The owner, John Kumpel, is a great guy that goes out of his way to make his guests feel comfortable. He keeps busy but is always just a What sApp message away. I don't want to set expectations but he always had helpful advice on restaurants, beaches, shopping and other places to see. He even took me out a couple of times and arranged a BBQ for the guests. Especially if you are a rookie in this town, his advice is invaluable.
I will surely be coming back.
Stayed here in feb. great place great location all brand new. John the owner was great even hung out at night and showed us the ropes. Differently will stay here again
