About Tracy Pinney
I am Tracy Pinney and my family of 5 from Ithaca, New York purchased 'Casa Catalina' to get away from it all and enjoy our each other in a peaceful, safe Caribbean paradise. We fell in love with this house the moment we saw it!
Tracy Pinney purchased this house in 2012
Why Tracy Pinney chose Cabarete
The setting is serene and the beach is one of the nicest, private beaches we have been on! The house is located on Las Canas Road and 'Las Canas' in Spanish means 'The Palms'. Royal Palms surround the estate and line the beach for miles! We love the location of this property, private yet close enough to the shops & restaurants of Cabarete (12 miles).
What makes this house unique
Walking around this property with the Tropical Gardens and fruit trees is always special. Starting your day with coffee on your veranda overlooking the private beach is an amazing experience. As the day lingers, you can enjoy being served your meals poolside overlooking the ocean. Scheduling an outing such as zip-lining, horseback riding or waterfall climbing adds to this truly unique experience!
Guestbook comments from the owner
As we prepare to depart the Dominican Republic I wanted to let you know that Jane and I had a wonderful experience. It is a beautiful house in a special place. More than that the people were excellent. Frances took care of our every need very promptly and made us feel very comfortable on our first trip to the country. The house staff took care of us very well. We got to know Ive and Juan Carlos and they were gracious enough to show us around on motorcycles. They introduced us to their families and showed us their communities. It was spectacular and certainly not an experience one could have at a big resort. Augustine has a knack for maintaining the property, it looks great. He was very polite and helpful.
We hate to leave and we look forward to coming back next year!
