To anyone who wants to RELAX, live overseas, learn a new language and culture, this is the place for you!! I am offering my newly built and furnished Dominican republic house to those who want to get out of the typical 'touristy' vacation.

It is in an international rustic gated community, where we have very friendly and out-going neighbors. We are a town watch community and the house has a security system on all windows and doors.

Really indulge yourselves by enjoying any or all of our exceptional add-on services once you arrive! We come to you!

- Cooked meals prepared & clean-up in-

house or delivered to your home

- Maid services- Daily or Weekly

- Facials- in the comfort of your home

- Discounted taxi rates for daily tours

(Many Beaches, 27 waterfalls, Daypass to OceanWorld to swim with dolphins,

Arrive to Paradise Island on a speedboat and snorkel)

- I also rent Motorcycles to explore the beaches and mountains.

You will always be greeted by my house manager upon arrival as well as when you leave.

This 2 master bedroom/ bathroom house sleeps 5 people and 1 sofa-bed. Both the living room and 1-master bedroom lead to the outside porch. Ceiling fan in every room as well as screens on all windows and doors. The master bedroom has an AIR CONDITIONER installed!

All guests will be provided bath towels, bedding and beach towels as well as plates, pots and pans, food processor, pasta maker, etc... to live like you are in your OWN HOME!! Enjoy being outside in the big backyard complete with a BBQ grill and table and chairs. On hot days, put up the white tarps and hammock for the outdoor patio.

After dinner enjoy the game room in the garage including a full size ping pong table, table top Foosball, dart board and board games! We have had many late nights having ping pong competitions!!

Enjoy the 3 bikes available in the house and go for a bike ride into town to visit the marinas or local beaches. For nighttime activities, hang out at the local spots in-town for a drink or dance to music, or just relax at the pool to enjoy the night sky admiring the many stars with your glass of wine!!

The house also has hot water, solar panels for electricity and a laundry room with full washer and dryer.

We have done our best to ensure you will have a pleasant stay!!

Luperon is also a town on the coast, which of course has local beaches (Playa Grande, Playita, El Castillo, El cambiaso y Punta Rucia, Paradise Island) some as close as 5 minutes away. They are not lined with tons of tourists. Take out the 3 bikes and explore these local beaches and a river!

NEW ADDITION TO THE AREA - Amber Cove cruise port -it’s the kind of quiet little spot you won’t find on most maps. It's the gateway to island paradise, Dominican-style.

About Danielle

I grew up in PA, USA and have lived in the Dominican Republic & Ecuador for a few years. I have built up friendships with the locals and since it's outside of the 'typical' touristy spots, I couldn't resist to build a house here.

Danielle purchased this house in 2013

Why Danielle chose Puerto Plata

I wanted to build a house in this rustic town since I like to be in a relaxed, quiet local town yet close to the beach. But hey, don't let it fool you, it's close enough to major cities and beaches when you want a change. Its an island!!

Hanging out with the locals and getting to live like you are in your OWN modern home is a plus.

What makes this house unique

The house has a lot of land around it - so no, you will not look through your window and see what your neighbors are doing!! You can relax in this house as it is comfortable and modern and from the outside porch while grilling, you may see cows walking by!

Take the 3 adult bikes and 1 kids bike (for 9yr olds) out on the town. I also can offer you facial and massage services that will come right to the house to make it a complete vacation experience.

Plus there is a great pool area with a tiki bar, BBQ grill, brick pizza oven and a small building with bathrooms and changing rooms.

There are no crowd beaches lined with tourists, cheap licor cocktails or nobody selling you overpriced items as you relax with your family and friends. However, some local beaches do sell drinks and food. Feel free to bring your own food and cocktails to the beach!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jorge and Sisa are awesome! The food she prepared last night was great. Jorge went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We walked to the main town area today. We both enjoyed this. You have done more than what I would have expected to make our stay great. My wife and I are both impressed by the level of service, the house itself, and the area.



Your house, and this location, is my idea of relaxation paradise! I love being outside the tourist spots and ability to "recharge". I've stayed in areas in Mexico and Belize that are similar in this respect. Your house is the nicest so far.



We could feel the passion for people that Jorge has when he patiently gave us a tour. And…for you, you have gone beyond renting us a vacation spot-- I don't know where I would be at this point without the extra efforts you have made.

Dominican experience/American accomodation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Danielle's beautiful home! You will enjoy living in the real Dominican Republic but have an accommodation that will suit American standards. Danielle made sure to have mostly anything that you will need in her house. The place is clean and spacious. You will feel at home right away, we did! We loved it so much we are planning to return as soon as possible!

Much better than a resort!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an excellent time staying at Danielle's beautiful home in Luperon. This is not a tourist/resort destination, so it may not be for the less adventurous, but for those interested in the real Dominican Republic, you will be richly rewarded. There are several excellent beaches within a short drive. Some of the green mountainous scenery is so beautiful it is almost painful. The people are extremely friendly and gracious. There are several day trip options also available. Danielle was also an excellent host. She has a beautiful 2-bedroom home that looks exactly like the photos. We stayed for 6 weeks and regret it wasn't longer. The pool is gorgeous for peaceful afternoons. The night sky is filled with stars. This is around a farming community, so I must say we really enjoyed seeing the cows, chickens, turkeys, donkeys, etc. Coming from Chicago, I initially wasn't sure I would be able to buy sufficient food in Luperon. But once we started exploring the little shops and restaurants, we actually never left Luperon to buy anything. If you are a good swimmer, the beaches have impressive coral reefs with lots of sea treasure (small conches, urchin shells, white shells, fish, brain corral, fan corral, etc). I only took dead shells without inhabitants. The tourist areas around Punta Cana or Boca Chica have many annoying hustlers trying to make money. You won't have any of this is Luperon. We had a hard time spending more than $6 a day on food and grocery shopping. A guy fixed my flat tire for $2.50. We mostly went to the beaches (Playa Grande, Playa Chiquita, Playa Cambiosa, and Playa Isabella/Casillo), The closest airport would be Puerto Plata - about an hour away. Weather was perfect. I highly recommend Danielle and Luperon for someone looking to get away for a quiet adventure.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our vacation in the DR so much that I have to tell you about it. We traveled the whole country from top to bottom on public busses and gua gua's. It was a blast and we are not young, ages 65 and 53. I would highly recommend the public transportation to everyone and we don't speak Spanish. It is safe and very efficient. Everyone is friendly and willing to help. You will have a lot of laughs at the unique experience. We still chuckle about it until today. The positives about staying at Danielle's house is that it has everything you need for your stay. The house has plenty of space. I loved the shower. The queen size bed is new and comfortable in the master bedroom. I loved that it is near to the 27 waterfalls and easy to get to. All you need to do is walk to the end of her street (5 min.) just stand there and wait for a gua gua to come along and pick you up. They drive by frequently just hold your finger out. It takes you to Imbert and from there it is 5 minutes away either by a moto (someone who will give you a ride on the back of his motorcycle) or another gua gua. We did all 27 waterfalls but you can opt to do less which is fine because the best ones are near the finish. Book to eat lunch there when you purchase your ticket. You will be very hungry after and the food is good and all u can eat. Wear old shorts and shoes for the water. The best thing we loved about Danielle's house was the pool area. There was never anyone there. We would relax by the pool every evening alone, not a person in sight and watch the sun set with a bottle of wine. It was fantastic. Every night we would ride the bikes into the town and have dinner at a restaurant. The bikes are in great condition and we asked if we could bring them into the restaurant while we ate and they agreed since there are no locks for the bikes. The town is laid back. The beach is pretty with very few people. The kind woman who lives in the 1st house outside the entrance gate sold us some of her freshly laid chicken eggs for our morning breakfast. Try the butter from the market in town. It was the creamiest I've ever had. We did not see one mosquito the whole time in the house, by the pool area or at the 27 waterfalls. The sky is filled with stars at night. Thank you for the lasting memories! We'd love to return again sometime.

Tranquil, beautiful & close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We cant thank you enough for letting us stay at your place. Not only was it beautiful but we had a wonderful time at the river and the beach. The town was so nice and everyone was so warm and friendly. We were nervous at first because we thought we were lost but found the place without a problem. We actually found a Colmado that played mexican music/rancheras and danced a few songs. That was a treat.

Come see the real Dominican Republic -Far from the resort-clogged beaches and cheap souvenirs, visit the less-frequented northern shore which is still under the radar!

Luperon is a town on the coast, which of course has local beaches not lined with tons of tourists. It also has lots of fresh seafood that is available at the local restaurants as well as typical dishes. The town has other 'foreigners' who fell in loved with the town and decided to stay.

While you are there, take out the 3 bikes and explore!!

Outside of the town, nearby attractions are 27 waterfalls, a must see when coming to visit. Also visit the mountains in Jarabocoa - go mountain biking, hiking and if you are feeling really adventurous, then go hiking up the tallest mountain in the Caribbean - Pico Duarte.

Lastly, visit Santiago - which has all the modern chain restaurants, super markets as well as movie theatres. The opposite direction there is Puerto Plata, Sosua and Caberete.

The house is in a great location, as you are in the middle of both the mountains and the coast. Get out and see the 'REAL' Dominican Republic!!

Just off the main highway, before you reach El Castillo, is the entrance to Parque Nacional La Isabela (Mon–Sat 9am–5.30pm, closed Sun; RD$150), which takes up much of the village’s shoreline and preserves the ruins of La Isabela, the second oldest European town in the New World. Discover the place where the 15th century settlement of explorer Christopher Columbus has decided to call home.
