    Default Looking for a Villa for rent in Perla Marina, Cabarete

    Hi all,

    We are a young couple, with baby and dog, looking for house to live in Perla Marina. After one year in Santo Domingo, we decided we needed some fresh air, so we moved up north. After visiting a few houses in Cabarete, Sosua and in between, we really liked the Perla Marina residence. We have been able to visit a few, but either it's too old, too expensive, or when we liked it the owner doesn't get back to the real estate agent.
    If you have some information that could help us with our search, that would be great. If you know of another area that you could recomend, please let us know.

    Thanks a lot,

    Pavlina and David

    ps: We've been keeping an eye on DR1 rentals, but so far nothing suitable.

    Default two more areas to look at

    Private villas in secure developments (that will not break your budget) are not so common in and around the Cabarete area; you might look at Olas De Oro Villas and Bahia de Arena - both are in Cabarete town and are nice, modest villas as a rule in what are believed to be secure environments. L'Agence in Cabarete are a good source of information. l'Agence Real Estate Cabarete, Dominican Republic

    Default Perla Marina

    Hi Pavlina and David,
    We were living in some places in Sosua and Cabarete and was disappointed by the usuficient security, stoppage of electricity, permanent breaks of internet etc. As we expect baby soon we started looking for a place without such problems and I think we found it - we moved to Perla Marina, first in a house and now in appartment. Perla Marina is a very secure place, clean, inhabited with expats only. If you move into appartment - which is preferebly - you will be on the beach, if you rent a house you will be at 3-5 min walk from beach. Place is strategic becouse being quite and uncrowded is close to main supermarkets, hospital /for the baby/, pharmacy etc. The prices vary much - for 3 bedroom/2 bath house we paid USD 1150 but we have friends which pay double less for similar, you can find appartment 3/2 for abt USD 900. If you meed more info pls contact me at [email protected].
    Kind regards
    Ivelina and Georgi
    P.S. As we expect baby soon we would appreciate your info abt good hospital and baby cares /vacination programs, nutrition programs etc./

    Thanks for the info! We'll look into them.

    Hi Hilde!
    Good to see you here as well! Yes, we are looking in renting in a gated community as we hear that the security is quite an issue...We have seen a few houses that were not gated and they were nice but, no street lights and a very quiet neighborhood would not make it very safe at night...And we only have one dog....

    Ivelina, I agree with your description of perla marina. We like it also and it seems like a good place to live with a baby. Let's hope we'll find something for us there!
    Regarding your question about the hospital care here, unfortunately I can't answer that as I gave birth in Santo Domingo. I will however be looking for some decent medical center for us and the baby over here as well...

    Congratulations!

    If it's possible, can you please post the rental amount and property specs.

    The reason I ask, is it will give others a benchmark.

    Thanks!

    Hi Robert,

    Very good idea. So here is what we found:

    - Location: Perla Marina
    - The house: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, furnished with AC but no washing machine, private garden and swimming pool.
    - Price after negotiations was 750 USD per month.
    - The price includes: Water, house cleaning once a month, swimming pool cleaning twice a week, gardener once a week.
    - Not included: Tv Cable, internet, products for swimming pool, gas for gardener's mower.

    Pav - I'm curious to what the contract includes.
    What about repairs? Does the house have an electric gate and if so who maintains that? Do you have video and or burglar alarm systems - and who would repair these?
    750 US$ per month seems very cheap.
