I will stock the fridge if you'd like, take you shopping, help you exchange money (DON'T DO IT AT THE AIRPORT! Too expensive), and help you feel as comfortable as you should!!!
Other things to note
DON'T change money in the airport! There are several banks in Cabarete where you can change money, and a money exchange called Wally Cambio. Dollars are also accepted most places, but you may get nicked on the exchange.
The water from the faucets is NOT drinkable. It is fine for bathing, but not for drinking, unless boiled for 5 minutes first. So, be safe and have bottled water only!!! Wash all fruits and vegetables with soap and water before eating. Trash should be brought down to the first floor bins, which are outside. Building employees can show you where! The condo should be left in good order with dishes done, trash removed, doors locked, and keys left in the lock box outside the condo door.
We provide some snacks and bevvies plus some bottled water and some sundries for cooking. We can stock the fridge for you if you wish or we can take you shopping at the supermarket.
Between Barbara, my assistant, and me, we speak English, Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese.
Please treat my home as you would your own! Shake your beach sand off down at the beach and use the shower on the beach to rinse off. Late night the neighbors appreciate if you are quiet. No noise after 11 pm. No smoking in the apartment, please. It's okay to smoke on the balcony. Thanks! And relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the ocean, the beach, and the sunset.
We are always available via cell phone to help you out, and I am often in Cabarete. There is also an office onsite that is staffed from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday and 9 am to 12 pm on Saturday. Because I am not always on the island, my assistant, Barbara, is also on call. If I am in the DR, I may stop by and say hi! We are always available by cell phone unless in a telephone "dead spot". You can (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or message and we will respond asap. If you need transportation to and from the airports, we can arrange a safe, reliable taxi from Santiago or Santo Domingo, and we can pick you up from Puerto Plata.
