We had a long term stay at the villa for about a month. I needed a home to accommodate 3 adults, 2 children and a family pet. This villa turned out to be a great place to spend that month. It is centrally located in the popular Batey section of Sosua, which is the main downtown. The optimal feature is that the villa is in a gated community which is extremely private and safe yet downtown is only a short walk or drive away. You are also walking or a short drive from Sosua Beach (calm water which is great for kids, accommodative locals who bring over everything you need , they work on a small commission, we did glass bottom tour and fishing tour) and a short drive from Cabarete beach (a windier beach but you didn't feel intense heat, famous for kite surfing, restaurants were also much better here - notably Pomodoro and Casita de Papi,more foreigners and families at Cabarete beach).
There is a huge supermarket within walking distance. We were just 5 minutes away from anything we needed or wanted to do. My husband and daughter took spanish classes every day and the Spanish school was only a short drive away. They also did merengue classes and we explored swimming classes. We visited an equestrian center nearby and an Ocean Village with plenty for kids to do. Ocean World and Monkey Jungle were also great experiences.
The community houses mainly foreigners with some locals; I always felt perfectly safe even when walking our dog late at night - everyone was friendly and you got used to familiar faces. The guards and cleaning staff are also all attentive, friendly and helpful with any questions you have. The home itself has a/c in all bedrooms and ceiling fans in common areas. The decor and conditions of this villa are better than most as it is a newer construction. Lourdes (cleaning lady) comes daily so it has a hotel feel in that you can request fresh linens and towels. It has a very large swimming pool which is perfect for those that like to do a couple of laps. You can also jog around the area with no issues. House is on a corner so you only have one neighbor directly next to the property. The house and bedrooms all are a good size, each room has its own walk in closet and bathroom and there is a half bath that any guests can use so they don't have to walk through bedrooms. The smart TV in the living area is a nice size and every bedroom is also equipped with a TV.Comfortable and good home, we had a good stay.
