Cabrera Waterfront Property on the north shore of the Dominican Republic – Sold

This Cabrera waterfront property represents a unique and wonderful opportunity to purchase a piece of Cabrera real estate smack-dab on the ocean’s waterfront.

This prime Cabrera waterfront property is increasingly difficult to find, particularly along the lush coast of Cabrera in the Dominican Republic. . . this is very much choice land.

This Cabrera property for sale is best described by the words, lush, private, secluded and intimate.

This magical, Cabrera waterfront property with its guesthouse was built in 2008 on over an acre of oceanfront property with incredible views of the ocean.

Have you heard of the three cardinal rules of buying real estate? Location, location, location! Well, this is a prime example. For any buyer, this would surely represent “pride of ownership.”

The one of a kind dream waterfront property

The home is at the water’s edge, next to an expansive lawn at the end of a driveway shrouded by three, ancient and majestic ficus trees. (Those are the huge shade trees with aerial roots that upon touching the ground become secondary trunks to support its large branches.)

The house is built with local materials, which include custom-made mahogany windows and doors—no detail was overlooked in designing a great beginning to an incredible compound. It consists of a bedroom and sitting area with a cathedral ceiling, kitchen and large outdoor living room with gas grill. There are a bathroom and an outdoor shower.

Oceanfront Swimming Pool

It is a unique experience to shower in the great outdoors with the sky open above you—the feeling is exhilarating and uplifting. There is also a laundry room and a detached, two-car garage. Next to the house, and overlooking the ocean, is an infinity pool, at the far end of which is a Bali bed.

This charming, Cabrera waterfront property which is for sale for US$ 395,000 can be lived in while a new main house is being built to the owner’s specification. Or it can be left as is, for a small, romantic or restful get-a-way bungalow.

It is only a few miles away from the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course at Playa Grande between Rio San Juan and Cabrera on the north shore of the Dominican Republic.

Helping Dominican Dogs and Cats on the North Coast

We all have different goals when visiting the Caribbean. Many are visiting our island to help Domincian Republic Rescued Dogs.

One beautiful Dominican Republic Rescued Dogs story is Fergie’s. Tom and Tanya found her on the road on her way to Santiago. The poor girls were burned all over her body. Luckily Tom and Tanya took her home, healed her and she had a wonderful recovery and was then adopted by Canadians.

Living in the Dominican Republic provides many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of people and animals.

One group of animal lovers, recently formed and growing rapidly, is known as DCDR, or Dogs and cats of the Dominican Republic. A dedicated, all-volunteer group, DCDR provides food and medication to more than 2,000 street dogs and cats in a widening area of the north coast from Sabaneta to Luperon and including Sosua, Cabarete and parts of Puerto Plata.

DCDR also provides frequent spay-neuter clinics and recently launched its “Rescue-Rover”, a converted airport hotel van that contains two operating suites.

DCDR is 100% volunteer, meaning that every penny donated is used to benefit the animals of the Dominican Republic. Many residents, both foreign and Dominican, volunteer in the various outreach programs that treat animals and educate their owners. The results are stunning!

Where just a few years ago, the sight of mal- nourished and sick dogs roaming the streets and beaches of the north coast was fairly common, it is now rare and DCDR aims to ensure that it disappears entirely.

Select Caribbean Properties is a strong supporter of DCDR and urges interested persons to volunteer and to donate. Their website, which contains all pertinent information, is:

A small donation to DCDR can make a real difference to all the Dominican Republic rescued dogs, and just a few hours a month of volunteer time can change the lives of many animals.

The mission statement of DCDR says it all: 

Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic is a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization whose mission is to significantly improve the health and welfare of the dogs and cats of the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Our mission will be accomplished through the commitment and compassion of our volunteers. Volunteer efforts will incorporate hands-on assistance, education of pet owners, residents and tourists, and provision of basic medical support which will include parasite treatment and emergency medical care.

We will also provide foster care and find forever homes for Dominican Republic rescued dogs. Furthermore, we provide emergency pet food supplies and strive to reduce overpopulation via spay/neuter programs. We are committed to an unparalleled community outreach program that connects our experienced volunteers to both the animals, and the Dominican and Haitian people. Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic will also act as good stewards of our contributors’ donations, and strive to foster community spirit and partnerships with individuals and local businesses for the benefit of all.

Rafael Nadal buys villa in the Dominican Republic

Rafael Nadal, the Spanish tennis superstar, buys villa in the Dominican Republic.

He looked into the Dominican Republic’s excellent real estate market, climate, security and the friendliness of its people.

He liked what he saw and decided to purchase a beautiful waterfront villa in one of the Dominican Republic’s most exclusive resorts.

The Spaniard, the number two tennis player in the world, is now the proud owner of a luxury villa in the “Playa Nueva Romana” resort, a project developed by the Piñero Group, situated in the country’s eastern region.

“The Dominican Republic has extraordinary weather, which is crucial not only for athletes, as well as for everyone else.

It’s almost as if I were near my country because the language is the same, it’s a solid investment and I have full trust in the Piñeiro Group,” said Nadal during a recently held press conference.

 A tennis legend

The Dominican Minister of Tourism, Francisco Javier Garcia, said during the press conference that having someone like Rafael Nadal invest in the Dominican Republic is truly invaluable. He said that Nadal’s confidence in the country is good for Dominican tourism and sports.

“This is a meaningful event for the Dominican Republic, for both the sports and tourism sectors, because this talented young man is an icon, a living legend that honors us with his presence, not as a tourist, but as another Dominican,” Minister Garcia told the press.

 “Playa Nueva Romana”

The “Playa Nueva Romana” features two golf courses, apartments and villas, a shopping center and marina, all on two kilometers of a perfect Caribbean beach.

The resort is situated some 30 minutes from La Romana International Airport, and one hour from Santo Domingo’s international airport.
