Interaction with guests

We are always available by cell phone to help you out, and I am often in Cabarete. Because I am not always on the island, my assistant, Barbara, is also on call 24/7. 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 text us as well, and we will respond asap! If you need transportation to and from the airports, we can arrange a saf, reliable taxi from Santiago or Santo Domingo, and we can pick you up from Puerto Plata.

Other things to note

DON'T change money at 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. The 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 door to the studio. We provide some snacks and bevvies plus some bottled water and some sundries for cooking. We can stock the fridge for you (you can reimburse us) or we can take you grocery shopping at Janet's supermarket. Between Barbara and me we speak English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German.

Alison's Flat is the perfect choice if you want to have a central access to cabarete's shops and beach restaurants and an amazing sea view. The quality of the flat is really good and it's even more spacious than it looks on the pictures.

I can't imagine staying anywhere better in Cabarete. I felt safe from the time I walked into the building. The unit was perfect for one or two people. I really liked the location because it was at the end of the Main Street and very quiet at night. The security features were nice too. Alison picked me up at the airport and brought me by the bank to change money and then to the market to stock up for my week stay. Nice to have a vehicle for the heavy stuff but the market is super close anyway if needed. Lots of hot water & water pressure in shower is good. The lobby and common areas were very clean. Good ceiling fan (& a.c. but I didn't need it). The internet worked perfect. The cable company had a fire when I was there so there were some problems but I ended up using the neighbor's box so had some tv during my stay. Not that important though since most of the time was spent on the beach anyway. Price was good for a week and I like the fact that I had a kitchen to cook meals if I wanted. I slept very well and came home rested which I needed! I'd stay there again. :-)

Alison replied to my messages before arrival.Once I arrived Barbara was waiting for me at the airport that I appreciated very much. Barbara showed me around the complex the place was even bigger than the pictures showed.Everything clean and bed was very comfortable. The complex has a restaurant good for having a snack everybody was friendly.Everything is within walking distance. I highly recommend for relaxation and they have many tour guides and excursions available.

First off, was originally booked in an All-Inclusive resort. Upon arrival, it was already unbearable. Immediately I started looking on Airbnb and found Allison's apartment. Put in the request and both Allison and Barbara made contact. Barbara was able to pick us up the very next morning and bring us to the apartment, saving us. The pictures are exactly as shown and everything went smoothly from then on. Highly recommended.
