Villa BayWatch your Dream Ocean Front Caribbean Villa Rental
Rarely does one arrive at one's vacation destination and exclaim, 'Wow this is Beyond Belief' No other words can better describe your emotions as you step out of your taxi and get your first glimpse of Cabarete BayWatch, your luxury vacation rental villa. The shocking turquoise blue of the ocean, the magnificent swaying palms, the plethora of multi coloured kites, the miles of white sand that shape the bay, and the roar of the ocean are all elements that combine to trigger emotions you never knew you had! And all of this within plain sight of where you will be spending your well earned Caribbean vacation.
Your luxury holiday rental villa is located on the most sought after spot in Cabarete Bay on the north coast of the Dominican Republic with wonderful beaches, great restaurants, and hot night life. Here you are just steps away from a wide a range of exciting sport activities (including windsurfing, kiteboarding and golf),
From almost every angle in this newly renovated 4-bedroom beach-front luxury rental villa you will experience an uninterrupted and awe inspiring view of the ocean, from the private raised sun deck you can admire what is now one of the Dominican Republic's most sought after bays, cool off in your private pool, or just relax while you read under the shade of your gazebo.
Step through your own private gate directly on to the beach and head into the small and quaint town of Cabarete. Get your hair braided, take a kiting lesson, get a massage on the beach, stop for a Cerveza, or just relax and soak in the sights and sounds of this wonderful Dominican town.
The north coast of the Dominican Republic has long been known for its all-inclusive hotels, its beautiful beaches, and its wonderful people and their culture. However, just 25 minutes east of Puerto Plata international airport is the north coast's best kept secret: The international village of Cabarete – the adventure and fun capital of the Caribbean. Unlike the "prisons"; of the all inclusive resorts in Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, La Romana, Playa Dorada etc. Cabarete Bay has recently become known as the Caribbean's free spirit vacation destination where there is indeed something for everyone from all parts of the world. Young or old, it is the destination for those that want it all! It is often said by the locals that nobody ever visits Cabarete only once!
Our villa Cabarete BayWatch is literally true to its name. It is located on the absolute prime spot on Cabarete bay with literally all the action right in front of your eyes but at the same time allowing you the peace and tranquility you want after an adventurous and exhaustive day or night! Undoubtedly it is like having your own private oceanfront resort without the handcuffs, the hundreds of people, the same old mass-produced buffets (we can arrange your own personal cook for a nominal fee), the repetitive blaring hotel music with a screaming DJ, and the restrictive rules and regulations of so many all-inclusive hotels.
Step out of Cabarete BayWatch and choose from water sports like Kite Boarding (check the live wind conditions on the wind meter on our activities page), Wind Surfing, Para Sailing, Sea Kayaking, Surf Boarding etc. If water sports are not your thing choose from one of two challenging golf courses. Playa Dorada about a twenty minute drive to the west and Playa Grande about a 40-minute drive to the east. Designed by Robert Trent Jones this golf course is often referred to as the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean with 12 holes on the ocean!
After a sound afternoon siesta begin your 10-minute walk along the ocean beach into the heart of the village of Cabarete. Along the way stop at one of many beach bars for a Cerveza or a Cuba Libre, have a massage or have your hair braided or arrange your kiting lesson for the next day. Once you are in town choose from one many oceanfront restaurants or bars, or just chill at a coffee shop while you soak in the wonderful culture of this unique village and its friendly and welcoming people. Finally visit one of many ocean-front nightclubs and merengue on the warm sand under the stars into the wee hours of the morning!
Come see for yourself why your family vacation at Cabarete BayWatch will more than deliver on its promise of being your best and most memorable vacation experience of a lifetime....Read more
There is something for everyone to do in this unique little town of Cabarete. People from all over the world, of all ages, families, singles, couples, come here to enjoy the water sports adventure capital of the Caribbean!

We have visited Cabarete many times. In our opinion, Baywatch is the best location and house on the beach. Apart from the amazing view, the home offers ample space with exceptionally well-maintained pool and landscaping. Also, the housekeeper does a fantastic job with keeping everything clean. We have already given our deposit for next year and look forward to returning to this slice of paradise.

Our second stay at baywatch was just as lovely as our first. The booking, rental office, and all staff in general are extremely helpful and quick to reply!
The views are breathtaking. The area is just our speed. Nice beach bars as well as fave restaurants we can't wait to return to.
Baywatch has everything you need...sunning, relaxing, cooking, and the gazebo is just perfect.
We can't wait for our next visit.
Can't rave enough about the staff, all around.

My family just spent a wonderful week+ at BayWatch. The location could not have been better, we walked down the beach to dinner, we walked up the beach to Kite Sail, we swam in the beautiful private pool, read in the Gazebo, took naps in the air-conditioned bedrooms, admired the manicured garden. BayWatch staff is very nice. The house is spacious and comfortable. We had a lovely time in Cabarete!

My wife, 15-month old son, 10-month old niece, sister-in-law, parents and I all stayed at Cabarete Baywatch for 10 days in april of 2013. From the moment we began looking until we departed Cabarete, Geoff and his staff were extremely helpful and prompt at answering any questions that we had.
The staff in Cabarete were amazing. We were greeted at the airport by Jose who was very helpful and took us anywhere we needed to go. He even got out of bed one night to take our son to the ER.
We hired the cook, Maribel, while we were there. The food was fantastic and very affordable. It was a very nice option to have especially since we had two toddlers which sometimes make it difficult to go out to dinner. We also learned she babysits and if we go back we will be giving her a call to help watch the kids. The housekeeper, Erie, and the grounds keeper, Rafaelo, were both very helpful and always looking out for our kids. They went out of their way to do anything for us and also kept the place looking great.
The location of the property is perfect. It is just on the edge of town which I found appealing. You don't have all the commotion of being in town, yet you are only a 10 or so minute walk via the beach to almost everything. The only reason I could not rate comfort as 5 stars is every night you could hear the music from the Tangerine club at the Wyndham resort. It was not unbearable but a little bit of a nuisance.
The yard at the house was a big selling point for us. It granted us a lot of privacy from the neighbors and the beach goers as well. It offers plenty of room to relax and play and has its own private access to the beach. I would definitely give this place 5 stars and hope to return again soon.
Thank you Jonathan and family. I have passed on your message to our staff and Jose the driver. They are very appreciative of your kind words. Compliments like this motivate all of us keep improving every aspect of our services to our guests.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family again soon!

"Definitely Going Back.."
Left on 03/20/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 20, 2013Stayed Jan 2013
Cabarete Baywatch is The best ever..! My family and I spent ten days there Last January .. It was the most Enjoyable Holiday..It would be difficult to find any fault with our whole experience there..
Ideal location.. It couldn't have been better! Just steps away from the beach, where we took long walks. We were amazed at the skill of the kiters as they went through their acrobatics! As an artist I found it difficult to take my eyes away from the whole colourful scene!.. I could have sat there watching them for Hours!
The home has every creature comfort that one could imagined.. cleaned each day .. which was a really great treat for everyone!
It was ideal for a family holiday.. We had private areas where we could rest, read, or just do nothing! As well we had the gathering areas, where we could Bar- B-Q, swim or have a drink at the swim-up bar! Service was excellent.. thank you to the wonderful people who work there as well as to our generous and thoughtful hosts!!

BayWatch Caberete is incredible! This amazing destination should be on your bucket list. When we first saw the photos on their website, I thought it was a nice place. When we arrived we were blown away with the sheer beauty and splendid grounds which were impeccably groomed. The beachfront was safe, clean and inviting. The mass of kiteboard sails that blew skyward every afternoon to mesmerize and leave us spellbound for hours. This property is an amazing place to have a perfect getaway. Relaxing, beautiful, exotic! The private pool and gazebo were as alluring. The Baywatch Tower had "get some sun" and "sit in the shade" areas.
The Dominicans are friendly and food is deliciously inexpensive. The day of scuba diving was another unexpected plus...just amazing!
As you wander the beach, we cannot give this stay a better rating. Our vacation was unparalleled to any we have experienced. We think this has to be one of the best holiday weeks of our lives.

I stayed at Baywatch, Cabarete in January 2013.
This is a home of unbelievable Beauty, Comfort and Tranquility, with every convenience one could need or desire! All creature comforts have been considered and cared for.
From it's upper deck.. picturesque views of the surrounding countryside and the ocean with it's colorful Kiters performing their amazing stunts! I really could have stayed there for the whole day!
But alas, there were other things that had to be done.. Such as long strolls on the beach to the town of Cabarete.. dinners to be enjoyed in the many quality restaurants.. maybe a Presidente or a Marguerite in Jose O'Shea. Their Burger topped with mushrooms is really great!
I can hardly wait to be back ther again! E.Duffy

Eight guys rented this villa for a golf and beach trip. The owner arranged for a van with driver 24/7 to be at our disposal.
The villa was luxurious and spacious with four huge bedrooms. Even though there were many of us, there was plenty of space to socialise together or have some quiet time, if wanted. The villa has an enclosed tower at the top of the house with a view of the bay where one can sit and have a drink and enjoy the view. The kitchen is large and beautifully appointed. The living room is tastefully decorated and includes a wide-screen TV with international channels. Throughout the villa, tasteful pictures and paintings adorn the walls.
Just outside the villa is a patio and pathway that leads to a kidney-shaped pool that includes a swim-up bar (for those that want to keep their drinks available) and a whirlpool. Deck chairs are available as is a grass area for games.
The villa boasts a guard tower with a guard on duty 24 hours, who will open the gate to give access to the public beach. Beach restaurants are about a 10-minute walk along the beach.
Thank you Ken for your compliments and we hope to see all of you again soon.
Just a clarification to others we have our own private exit to the beach not accessible to the public!

"Cabarete Baywatch is spectacular!"
Left on 02/05/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Feb 5, 2013Stayed Jan 2013
Cabarete Baywatch is one of the most spectacular private villas I have ever stayed in. I was apprehensive, as I had only seen pictures of the property before arriving. I was, however, speechless upon arrival at Baywatch. From the moment you enter the house, the owners personal touches are evident! In the entryway, there is a stunning wall mural, painted by an artist, this mural is hard to pull your eyes away from.
The Villa offered an escape from our hectic lives, offered the comforts of modern life. The villa is incredibly spacious, perfectly designed for extended family to enjoy as well! Well equipped, offering spacious 4 bedrooms, enormous amounts of outdoor living space, a lovely private pool, with a swim up bar! Whether we were looking for a cozy shaded nook, or some full sun, there were so many outdoor spaces to curl up and read a book, or enjoy a pina colada! My favourite areas, were the "Baywatch tower" which offered privacy for a nice relaxing massage, or just looking out at the jewel colors of the ocean. The staff work very hard to make sure your stay is comfortable, with cleaning service every day, oh, what a luxury!
We can't wait for our next trip to Cabarete to experience all that Cabarete Baywatch has to offer!

Thank you Martin and Sue May. We hope to see you back soon.

"Great family vacation"
Left on 01/25/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jan 25, 2013Stayed Jan 2013
We travel to the Domincan Republic often and this year were fortunate enough to spend 2 weeks at Cabarete Baywatch
The location is spectacular, right on the beach. Minutes from everything, and yet private and secure.
The Villa itself is ideal for a large family or group. There were up to 7 of us in our group. The beds were very comfortable. Bedrooms large and very well appointed. Kitchen has plenty of cupboard space and is very well equipped.
If there was a negative it is simply the DR way. There were a couple of maintenance issues that were difficult for the Dominican repairmen to resolve. This is not unusual at all, in fact it is quite the norm. Geoff went out of his way to apologize for these minor issues and very generously sent us cervezas and wine as his way of apologizing.
The staff were simply outstanding in every respect, from the gardener to the house cleaner.
Overall We would highly recommend this to anyone travelling to this area. If not for the small mainenance issues, which did not detract from our experience, it is an easy 5 stars.
Thank you again Geoff for sharing your home with us
Mike and Karla,
You are most welcome. Again I apologize for small inconveniences that you experienced and want to assure you the issues have been taken care of now. We hope to give you an even better experience on your next visit.
Thank you again,
