The SpaceA unique vacation experience. This is a micro-enterprise project started in order to assist small communities in creating a tourist destination. All expenses go directly toward the families hosting you. The room is basic as are the facilities. Shared flush toilet and tepid shower. The host family is warm and friendly. Guest AccessYou will be steps away from the beach. Various tours of the local community and surrounding area can be arranged upon your arrival. Including a local honey enterprise, a guided walk along a secluded and natural beach, going to see a local baseball game, excursions into a town untouched by tourism, travelling the country as a Dominican with a Dominican guide. Geni, your main contact person can arrange for information about other tours and interesting places to see. Interaction with GuestsThe host family will make you coffee and a light breakfast in the morning. Depending on your schedule dinner and lunch can also be provided for an extra fee. A basic knowledge of Spanish is helpful, but not absolutely necessary. The NeighborhoodLas canas is a small rural beachside community. The local residents are extended families who have lived there for years. There are also a number of foreign owned beachside vacation homes. The best part of the community is how friendly and welcoming the residents are. Take the time to start up a conversation and get to know the real Dominican hospitality. Sientate is a word you will need to know - it means sit down. Once seated you may even be offered a cup of coffee! And you will definitely enjoy a conversation. Getting AroundIf you want to travel there are a few ways. A public taxi, a bus or a Gua Gua are the preferred methods of transport. Many people travel by motoconcho, however these can be a bit dangerous. You are a 20 minute Gua-Gua ride away from Cabarete and 40 minutes from Sosua. Sosua is great for snorkelling the reef and Cabarete is great for any tourist needs. Car rental is also available at the airport or in Gaspar Hernandez. Other Things to NoteThe rural communities in the DR do not alway have electricity. Rolling brown-outs are part of life. Electricity brown-outs are usually during the day. Please e-mail for more information.

Beyond that are 16 acres of farmland with the river flowing through and my water in the house is clean and fresh as pumped from the flowing river and out in the fields you will find my 4 horses, donkey, cow and young female offspring, currently 16 sheep and many ducks. The birds in the delightful aviary can be heard tweeting and at night the crickets and frogs and the odd cockerel (they don’t only crow at dawn here) may be heard. You need to be a dog lover to visit here as I have 8 plus George, the cat, who came here with us from England some 8 years ago.

Tuly works on the farm and also keeps the gardens in impeccable order whilst Margo works in the house so will be your vacation cleaner and will cook for you if required.

              Are you ready to get out of your routine and go someplace where you can relax on the beach all day and fall asleep to the surf pounding on the shore? Get off the tourist path and experience the beauty and tranquility that awaits you at Casa Costello. Lie beneath a palm frond roof, sip coffee on the upper terrace with stunning views. With two stories, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two large terraces, and a cabana overlooking the beach, you'll have plenty of room to spread out in the shade, or scour the beach for sea glass, your choice. Private beach access lets you come and go at your leisure. Wi-fi and cable are provided so you can still connect with the world. Full kitchen with fridge, stove, oven, blender, coffee maker, and an outdoor gas grill are provided for your use. There are enough dishes, pots, pans and utensils to cook a feast for 8. There is bar seating in the kitchen, and a large table on the terrace that seats six. The 2 large terraces provide plenty of sunshine or shade, depending on what you crave. Rustic, colorful, and original, you've never stayed at a place like this. We have little red crabs living in the garden, numerous birds and lizards to watch in the yard all day, and our friendly outdoor kitty Lestat, is always around to keep you company. Transportation can be arrange to/from the airport, grocery store, ATM, restaurants, or nearby excursions for a fee. Our caretaker and his family can accommodate any request, including running errands, cleaning, laundry service or even cooking meals, for a reasonable price. If you'd like to visit the more touristy Caberete to eat at one of the fancier restaurants, (where the prices are high, peddlers are many, and english is spoken,) this can be arranged. For a more cultural experience, and lower prices, we recommend closer Gaspar Hernandez for restaurants and shopping. Our staff will be happy to accompany you as a guide, for a minimal fee. Excursions can be arranged to Rio San Juan as well, or just about anyplace else within and hour or two's drive. There are no restaurants within walking distance, but there are fruit stands, a convenience store stocked with the very basics, (ice, veggies, etc.) and a tiny locals bar at the end of the dirt road. With a bedroom and bathroom on each floor, you will have plenty of privacy, with an additional sofa bed that can be curtained off to provide an additional bedroom. Enjoy the extensive shade in the backyard from the coconut, almond, and fruit trees, the beautiful flowers, and the ocean breeze. We even have a special coco tree that shades a portion of the beach so you can sit in the shade with your toes in the sand and watch the waves. You can spend your days swimming and sunning, and your nights strolling on the moonlit shores. Linens, coffee, and towels are provided. Feel free to ice down the available cooler, grab a plastic chair, and make yourself at home on the beach all day! Parking is available, and our staff lives withing hailing distance should you need anything during your stay. The language here is Spanish, but our staff is intuitive, and a translation dictionary is provided for added convenience. With a too many screened windows to count, and ceiling fans throughout the house, we don't care if you smoke or not. Our house is your house for the duration of your stay.

The NeighborhoodWe live in a small fishing village. The workers walk by us everyday on their way to work and when they are fishing we have first choice of all the fish they bring. Getting AroundIt will be good to rent a vehicle as the local taxis might be more than the traveler is expecting. Taxis include cars, buses, backs of trucks and motor bikes and there are others. Other Things to NoteElectricity has a habit of going down but never for very long. The house has an inverter and the batteries attached will keep the house in power for up to 12 hours. If the power is off for longer there is a backup generator that can be started. I can count on one hand the number of times I have needed the generator in the last 3 years.
