Lynda Lehmann purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Lynda Lehmann chose Cabarete
We bought this property because of its' exceptional location! At the east edge of world-renown-Cabarete, this tranquil acreage is minutes from the hustle of downtown and only 100 meters from the deserted golden sand beach stretching for seemingly endless miles. Your eye is drawn to the mature landscaping gracing the gardens, the mountain view inland past the lagoon, and the ocean out front.
What makes this Condo unique
Our unique location lets you enjoy peaceful tranquility, minutes from the busy downtown commerce and nightlife. The international airport at Puerto Plata (POP) is only 40 minutes west, and the DR's 'Pebble Beach' style golf course at Playa Grande is an hour east. A dozen beautiful beaches are within an hour's drive, as well as Ocean World Water Park, Marina and Casino where you can swim with the dolphins. Samana's whale watching is a few hours east along the coast. Numerous ancient caves dot our area where you can explore and swim in crystal clear underground pools, under stalactites overhead which ring like chimes when 'pinged'.

Everything and everyone were great. Very friendly and helpful. Only down fall was the mosquitoes, to much standing water.
My room was clean as were the grounds. Les and Linda were really nice. I´d recommend this place anytime.
Barry is a wonderful guest and it was wonderful to host his Cabarete stay with us at Vecinos. What a joy to see how much he enjoyed his time here!
He explored a lot of our beautiful area and packed in a lot of adventures during his vacation - so FUN!
We welcome him back again anytime and hope he tells all his friends about us and returns again soon - cheers!
Where to start is difficult as so much of our 3 months stay was frustrating.
We were in the upper 2 bed 2 bath condo with another couple of friends. They had arrived 2 days prior to my wife and I arrived they were not happy with the condition of the condo. We soon found out why, the condo from the rundown furniture, beds, bedding, towels, cutlery etc were all in need of either replacement or a good cleaning. We spent a couple of days cleaning the apartment and all the bedding and towels which we washed on a regular basis an kept for our own use.
Les the owner lives on the property and tries his best to solve any issues, however there are so many as the property has been let go.
Any maintenance required is carried out when the guests arrive and pay there dues instead of being carried out prior to there arrival.
The beach access is across the busy main road and either through an overgrown pathway or by going through the condo complex caberete east.
Once you get to the beach there is no shade or loungers and the sea in the area was always too rough to swim.
Why did we not just leave well our friends had already payed and after we cleaned we also payed as we we had payed the owner directly instead of going through an agency there was no way we were getting any money back.
We were assured that there was security in the complex WRONG there Are 4 dogs And 4 cats. (Check U tube les Lehmann)
When you book the impression you get that les is there with his wife Lynda she is living in Canada and has not been there since 2014.
All in all our 3 months stay in this condo was a great disappointment and we found out that if you check around there is accommodation in the area 2 bed 2 bath in much better locations in much better condition for cheaper or similar cost to Vecinos.
Thank you for your review. We welcome all feedback to help us improve our guests' overall vacation experience, and will take your views into consideration.
Wishing you all the best with your future vacations, here on our beautiful island, or where ever your travels take you ~ cheers!
really love it there will go again
me and my family love it there was a great place the host was nice and was there when we needed him will recomend it to anyone to go there if they will let us will lobe to go again
Elizabeth and her family had so much FUN, it was a joy to see how much they enjoyed the pool and playing with the inflatable raft for hours - laughing and having a ball!
We welcome them back again anytime and appreciate them telling all their friends about us too! It's great to have such respectful guests who enjoy their stay so much! Looking forward to having them back next time they're in our area - cheers!
A Decent place to stay
Worked well for us as we enjoyed the 40 minute walk into Caberette. Either road or beach. Taxi or motor at night is a better choice for most. Great restaurants and great one right across the road. Property is accross the road from the beach. Price is fair for what you get, nor a deal but fair. Of you are looking for 3.5 plus star keep looking. If you are looking for a comfortable safe place at a fair price you may have found what you are looking for. Refreshing pool and showers are also refreshing some mornings but all in all no complaints. Suggest you always have TP in your travel pack.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at Vecinos and the restaurants in Cabarete....not quite sure what was meant by saying to keep looking for a 3.5 and then giving us an overall rating of 4 ..?
If TP stands for toilet paper, I guess that's always good advice when traveling in the DR as not all restaurants and bars are always up to Canadian standards.
Yes the pool is refreshing at this time of year and I always tell people the ocean is always much more comfortable to swim in temperature wise.
We are quite fortunate to have a high end condo complex across the street with a comfortable restaurant, Martinis, right on the ocean...georgeos sunrises and full moon rises as well.
We felt fortunate to get you a condo reserved for you after the several date changes and hope you enjoyed the upgrade to the two bedroom .
And yes, we do agree, it's a very decent place to stay in Cabarete. Hope you come visit us again.
We're on the main road, Calle Principal, at the east edge of Cabarete, 300 meters past Texaco, and on the same side of the street. Cabarete East, a luxury condo resort, is directly across the street from us.
Cabarete hosts World Cup competitions for kite-boarding, laser sailing, and annual sand-castle building contests.
Cabarete Caves show a glimpse of eons past.
Playa Grande, the DR's "Pebble Beach" is a must-see for golfers, and an hour east of us. Whale-watching tours bring tourists from around the globe in Jan/Feb.
