Very small. The unit only sleeps 3 not 4 as advertised. The futon is very uncomfortable. The access to the roof is not connected to the interior of the house. You need to go outside and access thru a locked outside door. The street is...More

About the neighbourhood
Unique property located on the beach in the village of Layou. Bed sit apartment with a sleeping loft downstairs and an open air living area upstairs. 2 bathrooms with showers, 1 in the apartment and one in the open air living area. Situated in the heart of the village of Layou with the Caribbean sea just a few steps from the house and the Layou River available for fresh water bathing. If you want a true picture of life in a Dominican village, The Beach House will give you that. You can enjoy the music of village life. Several local food locations out the front door, grocery store next door. Local bus service on village road, listen for the honking vans. Off road parking, hot water, wireless internet, washer and air conditioning.
Getting around
You can use the local buses easily, they pass in front of the house, or you can walk 5 minutes out to the main road to flag down a bus. We do recommend a rental car, it is just easier to get around the island more quickly.
