About Isabel Calderon

Love travelling, specially to beautiful unspoilt places which are not very touristy.

Isabel Calderon purchased this condo in 2007

Why Isabel Calderon chose Cabarete

Once you visit me here in Cabarete and stay at my condo, you will understand why I chose to buy condo here. I will not be surprised if you also wish to buy one too- to come back to time and again. In case you do do decide to buy one, I will help you find one- no charge or commission as I am not a real estate agent

What makes this condo unique

Most people who visit Cabarete do so for the beach - so our location on a nice quiet beach is probably the best option available, specially when all the amenities you may want are provided for.

The condo was bigger than my place back home! It's a penthouse (3rd floor) and is literally beachfront. Awesome, friendly community. FYI: There are two bedrooms, but one bedroom has two beds, so the place could easily accomodate at least 3 people, if not more if there are couples traveling. Definitely recommended.

I think the title says it all. The condo is more beautiful than in the pictures. A beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony. Location is right out side of town short taxi drive. A great place to stay and a steal at the price you are paying."

Complex was nicest we've been in, But the condo itself was in dire need of mildew cleanup

  • 3 of 5

The balcony faced the beach, wonderful view of sunrise and ocean.

Orilla del Mar staff were great and kept the property in top shape.

Only problem was the mildew, lack of proper linens for bed , bath and kitchen.

Owner lives in Peru. ...has not been in Cabarete for years. ....not dealing with issues. ......needs plenty of updates !

Owner's Response: I thank the reviewer for the review and complimenting on the great views from the condo and the condo complex. I have gone through their comments as well as our emails exchanges during 6 weeks of their stay, and honestly I am still confused by it, so I respond to each of the issue raised by them . I am glad VRBO/Homeaway maintain record of all emails enabling me to respond on facts. During 3 rd week of their stay, they wrote me that Full size bed sheets had been put on the queen bed ( probably they got mixed up at Launderomat during weekly wash). They also wrote me "Otherwise, the condo is acceptable and well furnished " As such I bought them new set of bed sheets and towels same day. Next day they responded " " Thank you so much for your quick response. The guard did deliver the linens and towels to our condo. We are still enjoying the lovely view from the balcony. Thanks once again," During 4th week of stay, they asked my permission for rearranging the furniture to which I agreed. Their response afterwords " It looks beautiful" In the 6th and last week of stay the husband wrote me that I should discontinue the maid service as they are leaving the week after. But later the wife wrote me complaining maid was not coming . They also wrote me at this time for the first time that they found mold around bath tub which apparently occurred due to a leak in building pipe that was fixed earlier. It certainly was not there when they checked in . So I called up the maintenance, sought their permission to fix it (10 minutes job) . But they refused saying that since they are leaving the week after, I should wait. I do not how they got the impression I live in Peru and have not visited Cabarete in years. In fact I live in USA, and having a 11 year old son can unfortunately travel to Cabarete only during his summer vacation and we infact did spent recent summer months there fixing the place, replacing with new A/C, fixtures, paint, etc. The photographs show that all woodwork is Mahagony wood which was polished this year and in my opinion never outdated. I apologized to them for the mixup with bedsheet etc , responded and took care of issues right away same day, as acknowledged by them.I repeatedly asked if everything is OK and they need any help. I do not know what changed in 6th week of stay after their writing me earlier twice that "the condo is acceptable and beautiful or what I could do differently .I would love to hear your views/ suggestions.

Great Holiday escape for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

It's the second time I've stayed in this unit - fabulous! Very comfortable for 2 people (or more - I think the sofa is a sleeper sofa) with the king-sized bed, full kitchen, pool and beach. Located on the east side of town in a tranquil setting but less than a mile to Cabarete to immerse in the day or night life. The staff and grounds are the best!

Orilla del MAR

  • 1 of 5

Orilla del Mar is a very beautiful complex of condo, this one bedroom rented is greatly in need of renovations in the bathroom and the kitchen, there is a beautiful balcony where you can see the sea

but no nice chairs to sit on it and this is the only condo without beautiful chairs, we have also compared prices and this condo is way to expensive, we do not recommand

Owner's Response: I am Sorry to read some of your comments though happy to note that you found all the facilities including cleanliness. maintenance at my condo and condo complex satisfactory and beutiful.. This is first time in 7 years of my renting and having received scores of 5 Star positive reviews on VRBO and Homeaway, a guest has written me making further suggestions . Yes, some condos located away from the beach are perhaps $50 or even more per week cheaper depending on the location and last minute walkin discounts they are able to offer, but people are willing to pay little extra for the location of my condo, peace of mind of having RESERVED a secure and well maintained condo offering spectacular views to make their vacation memorable and prefer to not go bargain hunting after arriving specially during their vacations. The fact that a direct beachfront location condo costs much much more not just to buy but to maintain - which apparently you did not consider. Strangely, when I even offered to return your money and cancel reservations as another prospect was very interested to rent my condo, you did not even accept my offer and accept refund and rent the cheaper condo being offered you. I am not sure what you mean by beautiful chairs on the balcony, the chairs I have are standard garden chairs whereas in the lounge/pool area there are lounge - recling chairs. Bathroom is a standard one, I never indicated otherwise. Kitchen refrigerator, stove etc etc are less than 2 year old. In any case you granted yourself a discount by not paying balance due. I am sure you shall reconsider your views keeping things in perspective.

newbie to DR

  • 5 of 5

As a single lady nearing retirement I wanted to explore the possiblity of moving to the north coast of the DR. While I had a rental car for exploring, this unit was close enough to Cabarete to use cabs at much less expense. The unit is exactly as shown on the website. Quite comfortable and I certaily felt safe there. The pool and beach area are lovely not to mention the beautiful Atlantic breezes. If I could change anything it would be the 3 story walk up (or I should have packed my duffle bag instead of a suit case).

Cabarete is a gem of a town with great restaurants and bars on the beach unlike nearby Sosua. I also explored the area to the tune of 400+ miles - from Luperon to the west to Cabrera to the east. Absolutely a most beautiful nation!

I would not hesitate to rent ther again!

Peace and Quiet; Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay; very nice accomodations, clean, well-maintained and secure community. Very quiet, except for New Years Eve (to be expected), but definately a place to relax and unwind. The most stressful decission was deciding between sitting by the pool or sitting on on the beach.

5 minute drive (cab/bus/moto) or 30 minute walk to Cabarete. Plenty to see and do in the Dominican.

Thanks Isabel; this was our first on-line, pre-paid, privately booked vacation. It was everything we had hoped for, and we would gladly do it again.
