    Default Luxury Villa For Long Term Rent, Anyone?

    Hello All,
    Since this is my first post I'd like to start by wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.

    I'm looking for a executive home/villa on the North Coast to rent for a year, maybe two. A furnished place would be ideal and save me the headache of importing those belongings.

    I'd like to stay near the Cabereta area within 30-40 miles if possible. Mountains or beach makes no difference at this point, I just need to get away from the States and recharge my batteries.

    I have made my living on motorcycles and can't imagine not bringing a few with me (for my own use) but I do wonder how the DR Government taxes a custom built chopper for instance? How do they determine the value of a bike that has no MSRP? ( I know, I know, the roads aren't "chopper friendly" ) and that's why I would bring down the dirt bikes too!


    I do like to party a bit on the weekends, so I don't want to live too far to get to and from the nightlife, but I tend to be a bit of a loner and would like to have a secluded quite villa to retire to away from the noise.

    Any feedback anyone can offer would be much appreciated.
    -RK

    Sounds like you would like Sea Horse Ranch. Its just outside of the main town of Sosua and only a short ride to Cabarete. They definitely have the high end villas but they come with a price. Private security for the community and you can also hire an extra private security guard for your villa if you choose to.

    If you have the money to spend rent one with direct beach access then you can walk out of your villa and be on the beach.

    I actually looked at a place in Seahorse a few years ago. The only thing that concerns me about living there would be disturbing people with a loud motorcycle.

    Yes, the bike would be a problem.

    No reason other than, I was going to use you as a yardstick. I figured if you socialized with or knew people in Sea Horse, you're probably knowledgeable of the nicer properties in the area. True?

    I don't live on the north coast, I live in Santo Domingo.

    My best advice is negotiate very hard and you might be surprised the deals you get offered. Lots of villa owners looking for long term renters.
