We arrived in a lashing down pour and David had to talk us in by telephone. The room was spacious and kitchen fully equipped. Only beer and water available for purchase but large supermarkets 5 miles in either direction. 15 minute walk to the beach. We had only 3 nights but easily could have enjoyed a longer stay.

We wanted to be very close to El Encuentro, the house has 8 rooms. We had a large one, very well equiped with a small kitchen and everything neatly clean. It's right between Sosua and Cabarete. You do have to take a 500 mts walk to reach the beach (sunny walk). House was so tranquil at that moment, not sure...

Granted we were told it's predominantly a surfers camp and we don't surf, but it turned out to be the most beautiful cozy hideaway! From the hammocks in front of our cabins to the perfectly structured landscape surrounding the pool. It felt like your secret hideaway.
