A very convienent and enjoyable stay

  • 4 out of 5
The apartment is well located - 10 minutes to Jennys - where you can get basic groceries and change money which is a big help. The Constambar restaurants and beaches are all within a 10-15 minute walk . The apartment has a beautiful setting - great views of POP at night. I felt safe staying there and Dani was always available to help out and he keeps the unit and pool area very clean. As I was there in February, I did not use the pool often - we had rain and the water was cold as it did not get enough heat from the missing sun. It was very quiet and private as the owners were away and we had the whole area for ourselves. Highly recommended and I hope to stay there again.

Owner's Response: This guest stayed here while my husband and I were away traveling in Asia. He stayed here one month but we could meet him only on his last day. However, he was a graceful guest who adjusted himself to all surroundings here. Dani (our care taker) is well trained and looks after our guests' needs. We would love to have this guest visit us while we are here so we have an opportunity to extend our hospitality to him as we have done with all other guests.

Awesome apartment in Costambar!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I are involved in providing safe drinking water to the people of the Dominican Republic and we just spent a month is the DR and rented Yash and Hemu's apartment in Costambar. The apartment was great and the private garden and pool area was awesome. Privacy is very important to us and you can walk out the door of the apartment directly into the private garden and pool area!!

We did not rent a car while we were in the DR. The apartment is located a short distance to a taxi stand and it was very easy to get around the area without a car using a taxi and other public transportation.

A grocery store and several restaurants are within easy walking distance to the apartment.

Yash and Hemu are great hosts and is was great to get to know them!!

My stay

  • 5 out of 5
A very comfartable and spacious appartement with a swimming pool and a terras.

The place is very well maintained and clean.

Inside the house you'll find a large sleeping room, bathroom, living room and kitchen.

The kindness of owners of the place - who are ready to help you at anytime - makes the stay even more comfartable.

Overall, this was the fourth time i've been in the DR (Costambar) and this place was by far the most comfortable.

Owner's Response: What a pleasant, polite and smart young man from Belgium! It was our pleasure to have Steve stay at our apartment for 15 days during the Christmas Holidays. He told us he has been a frequent visitor of Costambar, Dominican Republic and at each visit has stayed at different places. But by far ours was the best apartment because ours is spacious, modern, clean and safe place. Plus he loved the gorgeous views on the both sides of the apartment. He said he also enjoyed the lovely breeze coming most of the time. He also gave a generous tip to our caretaker, Dani.

He is coming back in April 2013 and left us a deposit to book the place. Of course we would love to have him back.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
Costambar seems like a very safe place to stay. I have stayed in Costambar several times and like the area. I stayed in this apartment for about 10 days. This apartment was very nice and clean and spacious in an area that is well maintained. The apartment has a large bedroom, large main area and small kitchen with refrigerator, stove, sink, cabinets with dishes. The apartment has a back door which opens to a huge covered patio and a very nice pool. The owners do not use this area much so I had private use of the patio and pool the whole time I was there. The house sets up on a hill so you have a partial view of the ocean on one side. The back has a partial view of the mountains. Another advantage of this is a good breeze much of the time flowing through the apartment. The bedroom is air-conditioned. A small store and a few restaurants are within 5-10 minute walk. The main beach is a 10-15 minute walk. I walked these paths at night and felt very safe. The owners were very friendly and helpful and speak English for those whose Spanish is not so hot. When I had problems with a weak wi-fi connection, he actually ran a cable to me through the window. This is more an area for relaxation. (Reading, enjoying the beach, the pool, and the patio) There is not much nightlife or stores to shop in Costambar. Puerto Plata is available for a $20-$40 cab fair. I enjoyed my stay here very much and am looking forward to being able to spend more time here on my next trip.

Owner's Response: It was great to have Marv stay at our place. We had lots of interesting conversations/discussions with Marv. He was very easy to deal with, he was polite and very pleasant. Marv has been to Costambar many times and knows many properties around here and so all the compliments coming from him are well deserved. Thanks Marv.
