    Default Apartment or house for rent in Sosua

    My boyfriend and I are looking for an apartment or a house for rent in Sosua, or near Sosua that is not too expensive (less than 300 dollars) with 24 h electricity and water (really important).
    If anyone knows a place, please let me know...

    Good luck. I don't know where you can get 24 hour electric today on the north coast for 2xx dollars a month resident or tourist.

    I guess I was lucky ... I pay 6500 pesos for a small house with inverter. The only bad thing: there's no water when there's no power.
    Unfortunately the landlord is selling it. But I stay positive, I hope I can still find something in my price range...

    Where is the house located? Behind Sosua Abajo, Charamicos?

    Good luck in your search.

    PS> curious how your inverter works with no electric to charge the inverter for 29 hours?

    The house I have been renting for one year now is in El Batey, in a very nice neighbourhood. The landlord is from Santo Domingo and he never increased the rent. I guess he just wanted someone to be there and take care of the house.
    The inverter is pretty big (8 batteries) but only works with 4 right now. But we never have problems with it, it can last for 7-8 hours, sometimes more. And here in Sosua, we get 2-3 hours electricity, sometimes more, everyday. It is enough to recharge. But also, there is no one in the house during the day.
    I know I will not find another opportunity like that, but maybe someone who rents his place cheaper because they need someone to take care of it...

    You are luckier than most of the people I know in town. My maintenence is more than your rent for a 2 bedroom Condo. I don't know many people with as good services that we have though.

    Your inverter runs the pump?

    No the inverter doesn't run the pump... that's why we have no water when there is no electricity... but I learned to live the Dominican way, with a bucket ;o)))
