About Amy Ruggles

I was born in Santo Domingo. I love to travel and share experiences with people from all over our world. Cesar lives in the downstairs of the house. He will be there for you to help you. Upon booking, I will give you his cell phone number. Also the house #.

Amy Ruggles purchased this house in 1984

Why Amy Ruggles chose Cofresi

If your idea of a vacation is to totally unwind and relax, this is your place. This spacious home and yard is privately located but at the same time you are close to all the area attractions. There are restaurants around the corner, plentiful taxicab availability, the beach is close by.

What makes this house unique

At our place you will be able to spend peaceful, relaxing days with best ocean breeze. Surrounded by beautiful plants and a warn clean Caribbean atmosphere, you will want to spend long afternoons dreaming, sleeping, listening to music, reading or just watching your favorite TV show or Netflix series. Or step out to one of our many nearby local beaches like Cabarete for world class windsurfing, Sosua with its awesome snorkeling opportunities or Playa Dorada and it's nightlife, movie theater, discos and shops, of course!

Puerto Plata is a beautiful place to visit. Either for a week or as a base home and then tour the island. Ive included some pictures of the places around us here in Pto.Pta. Forgot Playa Dorada, but that's just more beaches. The plaza there has a pretty nice Night life so does Ocean World Terrace with Wednesdays of Karioke. Open nightly! From here I would go East to Samana, (couple of days) cross to Santo Domingo through the Circumbalacion, visit Casa de Campo of Punta Cana. Come back through Santo Domingo, Santiago and back to Puerto Plata. Of course, there are many more places, these are some suggestions.

Beautiful house with an ocean view

  • 5 of 5

I went over, with my family this past summer and spent a few days at the house. The house is big and beautiful it has 3 big rooms 2 bathrooms and a big living room and a nice kitchen. The porch is really big as well you can see the beach from there. The location is great the beach is literally like 10 minutes away, you could even walk to it. The person in charge of the house and making sure we had everything we need it, was very friendly and atentive, he took us to the beach and to a really nice restaurant and show us different places where we could go and have fun during the day or night. In overall my family and I enjoyed our stay at the ocean view house and highly recommend it if you are looking to spend some relaxing time.

Ocean Breezes, Greenery, and, Space Galore.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home to celebrate a birthday and to spend time with a friend who lives in Puerto Plata. The open patio upon first entering the home is what I loved most -- a very spacious area with nice ocean breezes. The area was perfect for enjoying breakfast and having a drink in the afternoon. On Sunday night, fireworks and music from the nearby OceanWorld could also be enjoyed from the comfort of this area. The remainder of the house was as spacious and comfortable. We cooked meals in the kitchen and found most of what we needed. The onsite manager - Cesar - was always quick to provide extra silverware and cookware that we needed for entertaining additional family. There were a total of 10 people gathered for an evening dinner. The young boys liked the space to explore the house and there was plenty of seating for everyone.

Safety was never a concern as the property sits up high and is within a gated area. The entry doors provided more than adequate security.

The only drawbacks were 1) I could not seem to get hot water to work in the master bath. Although, the second bathroom was equally as large and the hot water worked great there. 2) Shopping for groceries required a trip into the city. It was only a 10 minute taxi ride to the SuperMercado where you will find everything that you can possibly need.

If you are not driving your own vehicle, then, getting the phone number of a trusted taxi driver will save you much time and money.

I was planning my return trip to this home before I left my first visit. I will be back again in 2 weeks, and likely, many more times in the near future.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you David for giving us the opportunity to visit your place my two niece , my father and sister and my aunt really enjoyed ,

The house is on very good location with ocean view close to cofreci and playa costambar beach witch are very beautiful, the downtown it about 15 minutes driving you can also find Acapulco beach, cosita rica beach and long beach about 20 minutes driving from the house. They are all very nice beaches.

The house is very clean and you can find all you need to have a good time.

Internet is very fast and TV channels work great.

We all want to go back again as soon we can.

Thank to César for all your help.
