    Question November DR1 bash??

    Hi everyone

    Is the DR1 bash on 27th November still on and if so have you got room for 2 Brits at your bash on the 27th November?

    We won't take up too much space and promise to leave any unwanted English habits at home.

    We're arriving on 16th November and will in Sosua (at my new apartment!!!) until 30th November so this will be a great chance to meet you all. I met a couple of people back in May when I was over and now it's time to mingle some more.

    Just can't wait to get back there. I hope someone can let me know about the party.

    Cheers

    Gary

    I was going to wait a few more weeks before reviving the thread. Sure we have plenty of room. We are at about 50 and I expect about 100 in total including those that just come for drinks.

    Send email to [email protected] and make your reservations. This is going to be bigger than the last one at Easter where we had 60+.

    Hey Scott

    Thanks for the address I just sent an email but got it all wrong - I wrote it to you and sent it to Rockys. I hope that doesn't upset anybody.

    I'm sure whoever picks it up will understand.

    As you can see from my VERY limited number of posts I've been almost silently lurking on this forum for a long time. The information contained here is seriously invaluable. I just don't feel qualified to actively contribute yet. Perhaps in a few years time with more DR experience under my belt and I'll crawl out of the shadows.

    Can't wait to meet everyone next month.

    Default Sausages in the DR?

    I said I'd leave any unwanted British habits at home and now you want sausages. I'll be getting requests for cold weather and horizontal rain next.

    But a house warming party could be an idea.

    Marmite anyone? Tally Ho!

    No probs with the reservation. As long as you get a reply you are all set. Glad to have you and to meet you. Along with 100 of my other closest friends

    Where did you get an apartment? I bought one in El Neptuno and just bought another place in Cabarete.

    Regards

    Thanks Scott,

    Got a confirmation email from Marco. I guess we won't be the only Brits joining in with the Thanksgiving celebrations.

    I bought a 3 bedroom apartment (condo?) up at Caribe Campo - one of the new places they are converting. I really like what the guys are creating up there and it suits my current needs. Great architect with excellent ideas to create nice places from what was a regular hotel. As with any new buyer (of anything) I hope I don't now get a flood of horror stories about the place. I've spoken to other owners up there and they are all very positive.

    Had a look at lots of places, and nearly went for a ground floor corner aapartment at El Neptuno(on the far left as you look at the front of the building). Nice place, nice location.

    One possibly stupid question - is there any difference between an apartment and a condo?

    Have you bought a second condo in Cabarete or a plot of land? Cabarete is a great place, love the laid back feel and eating on the beach in the evenings is the best.

    One difference is that a condo is part of an association of owners that govern the complex with a set of rules that is binding on all owners.

    BTW, that condo you mentioned in El Neptuno is no longer available. It and another were purchased by the same person and both are in the process of being extensively remodeled and refurbished. We live on second floor just above that unit.

    Hell we get as many Brits as we do people to these shindigs! Welcome aboard!

    I am the fat loud ugly American with the Hairy back and flip flops. You wont be able to miss me.

    I bought the one on the far right by the pool at El Neptuno. My side is the quiet side. That guy Ken throws parties that start at 3 am and go till when ever. If you are a late night guy stop over at his place anytime after 3 am. I am always asleep by then. Must be my age.

    If you buy a apartment it "IS" a condo. No difference unless you are renting a apartment and then it probably isn't a condo although if you are renting from the owner it maybe.

    I bought a 2 family attached house in Cabarete. Top floor is 1 bedroom and a sleeping loft. Bottom floor is a 2 bedroom with Living Room and Den. Kite Beach is directly in front of it over a little dune type thingy.

    I did buy a building lot in a gated community between Sosua and Cabarete across from Sea Horse Ranch in Lomas Mironas. I posted pictures of the ocean view on the message board so you can probably do a search and find it.

    I am going to renovate the place in Cabarete next month.

    See you soon. Hasta Pronto!
