“Great private place to stay!!”
I stayed on Dec. 10th for two nights had reservation for three but had to leave due to an emergency this is the second time I stay at this location the owners were super friendly and made sure all of out needs were being met.....the place is peaceful and very relaxing...I left an USB chip behind by accident and got contacted by Lynda to let me know how she could get that to me...I am looking forward to staying there on my next trip in the summer...if you are looking for a place where you are not so close to all the hustle and bustle this is the place the beach is right across the street and we traveled about an hour away seeing the nice beaches along the way.....thanks Lynda and Les hope to see you again in the future :)
Response from the owner We really enjoyed hosting Susana and her guests at Vecinos! They had a wonderful time, making great use of the pool and condo. They found our ideal location at the east edge of Cabarete very convenient. It's a tranquil place to stay, while still being close to all the conveniences of downtown, and having easy access to them. Walking to town along the beautiful beach out front is an enjoyable 20-min walk, and you can hunt for driftwood or amber along the way :) We were sorry they had to leave early, and invite them to return again anytime - with all their friends! Cheers - Les & Lynda :)
“Vecinos: Fun and comfort to super good price!”
My cousins and I had a very good time in Vecinos!. People very friendly and efficient, super-comfortable and large rooms and facilities for hosting and payments,with very economical rate,And when rest is perfect as it is very quiet place, there is no noise around,make this one of my favorite choices when going to Cabarete. In Vecinos, people feel like that, as neighbors, because even the other guests were super-nice. Thoroughly recommended, especially for large groups. thank you very much for everything!
Response from the owner Thanks so much for your wonderful review, Wendy! It's great having such happy guests during the busy Easter weekend - when we fill up fast! However, even when we're full, it seems like your own place because we only have 4 condos to rent, so it gives the feeling of peaceful tranquility :) It's great to see everyone interacting - creating a cooperative community fun-filled kind of environment! You're very welcome to come back again anytime, and please tell all your friends too! Cheers, Les + Lynda :)
“Best place to stay in Cabarete”
We've spend a wonderful time there 2 years ago. Looking foreward to come again this year. The owners created a very nice place, clean and with good service. Any question we had they quickly helped. Never forget the relaxing hours in the afternoon with Les' guitarplay. If you look for a beautiful relaxing place don't doubt to choose this one. Hug to Lynda and Les, we will contact you next week for our next stay. Gunnar from Germany
Response from the owner So Wonderful to hear from you again, Gunner and that you're planning to return to Vecinos again soon!!! You're More than Welcome, and THANKS for writing this great review of your previous rental experience ! One of the best perks of our job is meeting awesome people like you from around the world. We really enjoy hosting your Caribbean getaway in our boutique resort and sharing our unique hometown of Cabarete with everyone :) It's great to hear how you like our "favorites" recommendations and compare thoughts. Thanks again for taking the time to write your review! It's sure to help other guests shopping online to decide whether our place is the right "fit" for their vacations - so THX for your help!!! :) We wish you a wonderful spring, and safe travels! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Cheers - Lynda :)
“Like a Home away from Home”
After two not so good years staying in hotels and hostels in downtown Cabarete, including the Blue Lagoon and the now awful Laguna Park Hostel, I was looking for a clean, comfortable and budget friendly place to spend my New Year's with a group of friends. I couldn't be happier with Vecinos. Les greeted my friend with an open beer and later we could hear him happily playing acoustic guitar. He made us his delicious flax seed cinnamon buns in the morning and was always available for anything we needed. Five dogs live on the premises and greet you when you arrive from a day at the beach. My friend said it best, "I feel like I'm visiting my family in the DR." There's plenty of room to cook and hang out on the property and the rooms are clean and comfortable. If you're looking for a place to stay that feels more like home than a hotel, this is your place! The only downside is that it's a little far from the downtown area if you don't have a car but the distance also means some of the more unsavory characters of downtown Cabarete aren't lurking outside of your door. If you're considering Laguna Park hostel for a group, definitely come to Vecinos instead!! You and your friends can stay much more comfortably for the same price.
Response from the owner Glad you guys found us for your New Years Eve Party......it always makes it more fun for me when there is a group of younger party people around and I learned a lot more about the Peace Corp. and also what you guys do for the Dominican People....very commendable indeed. I know I don't like cold showers and could appreciate your joy in having hot water with lots of pressure....aaaahhhh... As we live on the other side of the house it's almost like having family visiting and I always invite people to make themselves at home and borrow and use whatever you need from our kitchen [over the years, because of the Saturday Market, I seemed to have collected every pot, pan, knick knack , and gadget you could possibly need].... Our next humanitarian group from Canada will be sleeping 23 teenage girls in the same 3 rooms....should be a blast.... Again, it was a pleasure meeting all of you and hope to see more Peace Corp. people next year....Hex, Vida,Bits, Foxy and Cinco d'mio say hi... Host, Baker, and Musician, Lester Grant
“Nice Family Get-Away”
We had a wonderful time at Vecinos for a quick family get-away here in the Dominican. The fact that there are only a few condos and it is not right on the beach make for a quiet and relaxing place to stay. We enjoyed our time as a family and found the owners very helpful and friendly. The room had a loft that the kids loved and a full kitchen which is an important amenity. We enjoyed the pool area also with lots of trees. It was what we were looking for - quiet, family-friendly and relaxing. We will definitely return.
Response from the owner Humberto and family were great guests and came back for another night a few days after their first stay. We were happy to see them enjoy the charcoal BBQ and pool - where the whole family laughed + played for hours. We want them to know they're more than welcome to come back and stay with us again anytime, and look forward to them coming back next time :) Wishing them all the best, Les + Lynda
“Quiet, comfortable Great Price”
Lynda is a great hostess and everything you need is there in the condo unit. I would come back again
Response from the owner We were so happy Sarah and friends found our vacation rental online and chose it for their "respite getaway" in Cabarete. It was wonderful to hear about their humanitarian work (teaching Dominican women skills to earn their own livings) and be able to offer them a break from the rustic village living with a "taste of home". They said how much they appreciated having unlimited hot water again.They'd come directly from the campo - where a rainy spell had resulted in very muddy conditions, so they'd been unable to do their laundry there. They really appreciated the use of our common clothes washer and dryer - as well as the landscaped gardens and clean concrete pathways - where it all stays clean, and you can walk in the rain without getting muddy. Two girls were having birthdays, so Sarah baked a birthday cake to celebrate and left some for us to enjoy - yummm! thx for sharing that tasty treat :) We really enjoyed watching them have fun in the pool and shopping trips to town. It's always such a joy to have guests who appreciate our place and maximize their time with us - rain or shine. We applaud their hard work, and welcome them to return and stay with us again anytime - and all their friends too! We wish them all the best and look forward to hosting them again on a future vacation - all the best! Les + Lynda + pets :)
“Vecino's in Cabarete: A Healing Retreat”
Being in a wheelchair I was nervous about coming to the Dominican Republic for the first time, but owners Les and Lynda Lehman immediately put me at ease with heir conscientious and caring attitude. It turned out that Vecino's was the perfect place for my sojourn, a healing retreat on a lushly landscaped acre. I was able to get around with minimal assistance, and whenever I needed help it was immediately available.
Response from the owner Stephan was a wonderful guest who stayed with us for several months and didn't let his disability slow him down too much. He hired a local helper who pushed him across the street to watch the evening sunsets over the ocean. He also pushed him to town along the front street to take advantage of all the conveniences available there. It was wonderful to hear him tell us how healing he found the "green light" filtering through the lush tropical foliage. He spent happy hours floating in the pool and working on regaining his strength to walk again. We were happy to learn that the condo works well for a wheelchair guest, and see how well he was able to get around. We appreciate his offer to email future wheelchair guests and share his experiences here with them to help them decide whether our place is a good fit for their needs. We wish him all the best and welcome him to return again anytime! Looking forward to having you back again on a future stay, Stephan - take care.....Les + Lynda
Les & Linda are wonderful, they looked after our every need. A great place to stay!
Response from the owner Mike + Claire were great guests and are welcome back anytime! We enjoyed hosting their stay with us and see them enjoying their time here. They are wonderful to meet and really entertaining with their music and numerous anecdotes. We enjoyed meeting such genuine, warm and wonderful people ! It turned out that they purchased some property in our area, so we also look forward to having them in our community. Welcome to the neighbourhood!
“Lynda & Les were great hosts, they coudnt have made it better.”
Les, should be a tour guide. He knows so much about Cabarete & the surounding are. The day & night life, the little out of the way spots,the beach. Lynda has a great Market on Sat. that atract natives & visitors alike, it quite a socail event.Their grounds are very attractive& a nice pool area. The are rooms neat & clean with every thing that is reqiuered, thanks in part to their congenial staff.
Response from the owner Dave was a wonderful guest who made full use of our relaxing and tranquil setting to catch up on some reading and "recharge his batteries". He told us he was happy he'd accomplished exactly what he'd set out to do when he came. He'd seen how we spent Christmas + New Years and was able to "decompress" from his work in our serene surroundings. He was a great addition to our little community of expats, and regaled us with his amusing stories + insightful observations. He spent many "happy hours" across the street at the conveneint restaurant called "Martini's" He told us he hopes to return soon, possibly in spring. We all missed him when his 6 wks were over, and he's welcome back anytime!
I have been very good the condo was very nice and clean a beautiful garden and very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere ms and mrs lynda les are excellent people
Response from the owner Marino was a wonderful guest who fit right into our expat group and spent many happy evenings socializing around the pool and reception hall. He enjoyed our great location - from where he could easily connect with all the entertainment options - and also visit his fiancee's local family . He took wonderful care of the condo, and made a great contribution to our happy little community. He's welcome back anytime, and we hope he'll come back to stay with us again.
