Villa de la Mariposa is our personal residence in the Dominican Republic. We live there 5 or 6 months during the year. We have decided to share our
home with visitors from around the world. In order to accomplish this, we placed our home on the HomeAway Vacation Rental website. This was not
an easy decision. When you click on the links for Rates and Calendar, your browser will open a new window to display the information that we have
listed on HomeAway. After viewing the information, simply close the window or press the back arrow and you will return to this site.
Our home, Villa de la Mariposa, which is located in Playa Laguna(between Sosua and Cabarete), is just a short 15 minute drive from the airport, 10
minutes from Sosua, and 15 minutes from Cabarete. Restaurants, bars, casinos, beaches, supermarkets, and shopping are located in each town.
Cabarete is known as the kite surfing capital of the world, with snorkeling, diving, fishing and simply sunbathing available in either town. At night,
the discos in Sosua begin the festive music and the streets are crowded with visitors. Playa Laguna is a quiet neighborhood located between the
exclusive homes in Sea Horse Ranch and the beautiful project with amenities known as Sosua Ocean Village to the west. A state of the art gym and
work out facility, an exceptional restaurant, and a waterpark are all part of Sosua Ocean Village. A new, small hospital has opened within the last
year serving visitors, as well as locals, in Sosua. Not a rental property, our home is a family home 6 months of the year.
Our friends manage and take care of our property. We have known Jose for over 8 years and he has been our driver, our manager, but most of all our
friend. He will take care of any problems that arise when we are gone. Nelly, and her son Gary, are also more than employees, and also are willing to
handle anything you may need while visiting our home. We have know them for more than 6 or 7 years.
Jose is available to show you the area, knows the best restaurants, and has people available to fix any problems that may occur. Nelly will come to the
house on the week days to straighten up, light cleaning, laundry services, and possible short errands you may require. Gary will clean the pool and
rake the leaves Monday through Saturday. Both Nelly and Gary will finish their duties by 1 PM, but would stay longer if needed. I pay them for being
there to assist, but tips for good housekeeping services are not unusual in the DR. I am sure when you leave, they will be your friends as well.
