Why Kathie or Mike Holt chose Puerto Plata
Friends of ours own the house next door in Costambar and invited us down in 2006. They have been spending their winters in Costambar for over 20 years. They knew the house next door was for sale so we took a look at it. Frankly it was an unfinished, complete mess! But we could see that the 'bones' and structure of the house were great. We were able to negotiate a terrific price and KNEW we would regret it if we passed up this amazing OCEANFRONTopportunity. So we did it!! We fell in love with Costambar and feel SO 'at home' there right from the start ! Other than being with our children and beautiful grandchildren, it is our absolute FAVORITE place to be in the world ! We just have to pinch ourselves that it's really our home.....such a dream come true for working stiffs from a small town! The food is great, the people are friendly, it is so quiet and relaxing there, we just love it so much and look forward to when we can retire and spend our entire winters there.
Please No outside visitors allowed due to very bad past experiences.
What makes this house unique
what more can I say other than OCEANFRONT !!!!! SO BEAUTIFUL !! I LOVE watching the huge rock in the ocean right from our deck ! I love watching the waves splash against it; how it changes colors; etc ! BONUS: our Property Manager is a MASSEUSE!
