Hopes and Dreams

Remember when you were a child and you had hopes and dreams and the world was simple and beautiful. Looking out of Gary's place on the kites rising and falling along the crystal blue water will make you feel that again.

Luxury living at an affordable price

“Luxury resort living at an affordable price. We are convinced it is the best value for your money anywhere in Cabarete. The unit is comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. The A/C works awesome. The view is absolutely spectacular! What made the vacation truly special was the company of our new friend Gary, the owner. We loved spending time with him. He took us to fun restaurants we would have never found on our own. One night he brought back dinner from the "chicken shack" and we enjoyed it on the balcony as an evening storm approached. Gary is a world class surfer and kiter. He offered a wealth of knowledge to my husband who was just learning to kite. He also shared interesting insights into the Dominican culture. An A++ experience with long lasting memories... ”

The Luxury Beachfront Loft apartment is the place to stay in Cabarete

The Luxury Beachfront Loft apartment is the place to stay in Cabarete. From there you have the best options to explore the area, the beach, restaurants, supermarkets, bars etc. All are just a footsteps away and the view from the loft is on any day just amazing. The apartment is quite, clean, safe and comfortable. Gary the host is very friendly and an easy going person, he took time of his jam-packed schedule to show me around the area of the town and he was always available for any help. This place is a perfect spot, specially if you are a surfer. I would recommend it anytime. Hope to come back soon for more surf and some beachgolf.

Wonderful Vacations

We had a wonderful week in the Penthouse, it is exactly as described and shown in the photos, the trade winds were also good and we were able to kitesurf everyday. Our hosts Gary and his wife were really caring and always helpful with all our questions, they had some great tips for day trips and things to do around the local area. I will be coming back next year for sure with my husband to stay again in this lovely penthouse.

Amazing holidays

Our stay and holidays in the penthouse was truely amazing, it has a perfect location on kitebeach for kitesurfing with all the luxury and comfort you would need. Super comfortable beds, very clean. And with a million dollar view you can see all the kite action directly from every room in the apartment even from the master bed. The kids enjoyed very much the swimming pool area and garden areas. The house cleaning was quick and very efficient (twice weekly you can have more by request) a nice detail is that they have free portable drinking water. Gary and Vanessa were great hosts and always available for any advice and local knowledge and are willing to spend time with you and show you the local area. Also the onsite reception staff were great in solving any small details and requests. I will be back for sure very soon and will recommend the Penthouse to all my friends as its really a top quality first class apartment.

We will be back!

Gary and Vanessa were amazing to deal with and they gave us amazing tips about the area, kiting and restaurants and they communicated very well. We were more than happy with the place it exceeded our expectations. The first thing we saw when we walked through the door was people kiting! It was so so so close to the beach. We have kited all over the world and we have never been so close to the kite spot let alone able to watch it all from the balcony. I can't explain how convenient this spot was for our family. I could be hanging out on the balcony with our baby and three year old and watch my husband kite! It was truly amazing. Also for our family the pool, grassy area and fenced off beach area protected from the kites was fantastic. But we were also meeting up with friends and the beach bar on the property was perfect. They played great music while you watched the kiting. They had great food and it was a fun place to hang out, again only a few steps from our place. The unit was extremely clean and had everything you needed, big kitchen and table and the balcony was the best! Lots of room, 3 bathrooms and very nicely decorated. Also it was very close to the town and to the surf spot if it wasn't windy, just a quick taxi ride away! I would highly recommend this place to families or to a group of friends or couples. It works for everyone! We will be back!

Loft paradise

Holiday spent in paradise with incredible hosts Gary & Vanessa, their local knowledge is invaluable. The loft is spotlessly clean with huge comfortable bed, panoramic views of the kite action while chilling on the balcony . The gardens & pool are easily accessible. I will be back for a longer stay later in the year, thanks to you both for an amazing time.

Love this place, back soon.

Gary and Vanessa's place is a jewel paradise. Best penthouse view in Kite Beach. Their place is well equipped, organize, very spacious, with modern amenities, yet still has that unique Caribbean vibe and maintained very clean. Gary and Vanessa are such gracious hosts and have invited us for evenings of relaxing local hangouts. Both of them are localpedia of various water sports (kitesurfing, surfing, SUP) who will modestly share ideas pointers about their local beach. They're passion for the ocean is so contagious. Also note that they're also very warm caring people who made short-notice re-arrangements when we had to extend our stay due to medical conditions. We love this place and plan to come back soon

The loft at KiteBeach was perfect.

The loft at kite beach was perfect. Amazing location, wonderful views, great apartment, easy access to Cabarete town. And Gary was the perfect host - super-clear and straightforward communication throughout the process, very helpful and friendly advice, available for assistance if needed, and going above and beyond the call of duty with helping me out with some lost property. Honestly, couldn't imagine a better host, or a better apartment. Oh, and Cabarete the the kite-surfing was awesome, including for beginners.
