About Robert

I grew up and live in the New York City area and have many years experience renting out vacation properties. I have many very satisfied customers over these years. My local property manager is very experienced, helpful and knowledgeable, and is fluent in five languages. We work together to promptly address any issues that might arise during your stay and strive to keep the villa in tip top shape at all times.

Robert purchased this villa in 2014

Why Robert chose Sosua

This property is unique for a villa in Residencial Casa Linda in that it feels more like a tropical home than simply a villa with a pool. The property gently slopes in back, adding to the uniqueness. There are lovely mango, coconut and other fruit trees surrounding the patio and pool. Unlike other villas where the pool is almost on top of the house, this villa's pool is a short walk down towards the back of the property, giving it the feeling of a small lake. The property is at the end of a cul-de-sac so you have excellent privacy and can leave your front and back doors open to bring in the breezes. You get the feeling of living in a secluded topical garden along with the security of staying in a very safe 24 hour secured community.

At night time, the villa grounds are enchanting! We recently added quite of bit of nice custom outdoor lighting.

The villa, a custom "Yasmin" design, is very nice architecturally, as it features very high pitched ceilings and tall and interestingly shaped windows, along with the extra bedroom and bathroom downstairs.

Inside the villa is lovingly furnished with quality furniture, much of it manufactured locally, and also decorated with lovely original local art work. It feels like a home, not a cheaply furnished rental. (After all, the villa is our home away from home, as well as serving as an income property.) The bathrooms are all oversized as well. The beds are all new, top of the line and extremely comfortable. In addition, the kitchen has been newly renovated with stone counters and the villa was repainted inside and out.

What makes this villa unique

The free shuttle buses to the beach, town, and Cabarete run all through the day and leave just a two minute walk from the villa! Also, newly upgraded internet is much faster and reliable than the typical service provided in the community! TV's in all of the rooms!

Extremely bad experience

  • 1 of 5

This is the 10th time for me and friends to Visit the DR...

But i need to point out, that from all the my previous Stays,

this particular stay, stands out....

Unfortunately to the Very worse...

This was truly a

so-called Villa of Hell...

Before foregoing with my experience, I have to Point out that the Cleaning lady and Stefan (house care taker) were extremely warm and welcoming to us....

So here is my experience.

1) the entire kitchen and dining area is infested with tiny black fleas... it was really concerning us with sanitary health problems...

the only part of the Kitchen, thats new, is the countertop, the rest r all old rotten cabinets.

2) we had No internet... Just for one day, the rest of the stay we did not have any

Wi-Fi/internet, Robert claimed about an major outage in Puerto Plata, but everyone else in "Casa Linda" had internet...

We Spend over $5,000 peso, by Claro, to get a device, so we can have internet

3) the 3rd bedroom is not a part of the house at all... the only way to access the bedroom, is through the outside, one friend of mine left, he didn't want to Stay and we lost money on it...

I would rather say that the third bedroom is a guest house, it's a full staircase that you have to go out from the Main house, with a separate entrance

4) Robert deducted $135 from my Damage deposit, he claimed, that We...lolol used extensive amount of towels, and he had to spent more $$ on detergent...

Quote by Robert;

There were additional supplies costing $36 that Stephan purchased for the added cleanings that you had. The cleaning fee only covers the labor not the additional supplies which are normally deducted from the deposit in the event that additional cleaning over and above the 3 per week that is included is requested.

Due to the fact that you used so many towels, each day, the cleaner had to go off site to wash and dry things. This ended up costing me an additional $75.

(Ridiculous)

5) the back door neighbor, has 3 dogs that keep him barking Around the Clock... you cannot fall asleep, if you finally fall asleep, u will get a Wake up call by the Dogs.

(This is No Roberts fault/ responsibility, just a fact of the matter)

We had continuous problems with the air conditioning, thought they were ultimately fixed..

At the other end, i have to admit that the outside pool area is is very cozy, and the bedrooms are decent...

There nothing more for me to add, just to say that the Villa was hell's backyard....

Owner's Response: I appreciate the kind comments about my local property manager, the cleaner, bedrooms, and pool and patio area. However, much of what else he says is false or misleading. I was at the villa last week and everything was clean. I did not see a single bug. In addition to new stone counters, the kitchen has a beautiful new tall cabinet for glassware, new inlaid sink, and new gold faucet. He falsely says that only the counters are new. True, the cabinets were repainted last year and perhaps the wrong paint was used so there are some small imperfections. It's something that I will redo but it's not something that should impact a stay- it's purely visual and it's only spots here and there. The third bedroom is downstairs and separate from the main house with its own entrance, exactly how I describe it in the listing. (There are very easy outdoor steps that go up a gradual incline to the level of the main home). I cannot help it if this person doesn't read the listing. The internet worked fine when I was there last week and this is the only time in scores of stays at the villa by guests that the internet has been out for several consecutive days. I apologized to him repeatedly about this and acknowledge the inconvenience this caused, but it's not directly under my control. My property manager did his best to get the provider, Claro, to fix it. Now that it is working again, it is perhaps the best internet in the Casa Linda community. I include 3 cleanings per week in my rate. He wanted 3 additional cleanings. There were some additional supplies as well involved with the 3 added cleanings. He paid for two of the three added cleanings, $27, and none of the additional supplies, and got back his full $200 deposit. I did not deduct $135 from his deposit and only refund him $65. I refunded him the full $200. There are barking dogs all over the Dominican Republic. I was never awakened by any dogs during my recent 5 day stay nor have I ever been, nor was I bothered from some occasional barking. The vast majority of time, I was hardly conscious of any nearby dogs. This person must be overly sensitive to noise. It should also be pointed out that there was nobody around in any of the other homes on the street--complete privacy to leave front and back door open for the breezes. I can honestly say that staying at the villa continues to be an absolute delight. I only wish that I could find more free time to stay there myself. --Robert, the owner

I had a pleasant week stay at this villa.I would definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the villa with a buddy of mine for six nights an for us all was well never had a need to call property manager for anything. If you never stayed at Casa Linda there is no safer place you could stay. Security is excellent here. For the price of the villa I would have to give it 5 stars

In Love

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband. The village was exceptionally clean, and it's locale near to Cabarete ideal for an exciting nightlife time. Lovely pool and well maintained, extremely clean, very private back yard. I perfect place for a romantic stay or family/friends vacations. I would highly recommend it, the location is under surveillance 24/7, we felt secure all the time. I'm actually in the process to do another reservation to go with my friends. See you soon!!!!!!!:)

great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place at a great price! I dont understand some of the complaints from other people who stayed here. Barking dogs? Theres barking dogs everywhere in the dominican republic lol i heard a few dogs but not to the point where it was disturbing. The house is cozy n very safe. The property manager (forgot his name lol) was very nice n cooperative n the grounds in fantastic shape. Pool was nice n big enough. You cant beat this place for the price!! Way better than staying in a resort.

Nice residential community

  • 3 of 5

We spent a month at this villa, the pool, patio and private yard was beautiful. Any issues we had were promptly looked after. The villa was spacious for four people, nice private bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was a bit dated and could use an update, but functionable. We felt very secure in the gated community. The free shuttle service to Sousa and Caberete was fantastic. The biggest issue was the villa bordered the outside perimeter of Casa Linda and the neighborhood dogs barked quite often and many times during the night.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad that you found the villa comfortable, clean and accommodating and enjoyed the gardens, patio and pool areas. I would like to comment on the noise you heard at night from the neighborhood dogs. The villa is in a very quiet part of Casa Linda that gets perhaps the least amount of noise from within the community but as you noted, one can hear some neighborhood dogs, mostly from outside of the community, sometimes at night. This is common almost everywhere in the Dominican Republic. When staying here, I (a light sleeper) have slept with the windows closed (and the air conditioning on) and have always slept through the night without being disturbed by noises. I would note for other potential guests that the ac units are inverter units with thermostats and fan speeds. Hence, it is possible to set the units for a specified desired temperature and use it even on cooler nights. Also, the largest bedroom faces away from the borders of the community. Hence, if say one couple or individual wishes to sleep with the windows open that couple or individual could use the largest bedroom and the others could use one or both of the other two bedrooms. Update on the dogs as of May, 2016: I have just stayed in the villa and am happy to report that the dogs seem much quieter than before. Great news--There is now a brand new kitchen with quartz countertops! Sincerely, Robert the Owner
