About the neighbourhood
THINGS TO DO NEARBY Cabarete, the windsurfing and kite-boarding mecca, which features in the 'World Cup' series of races, is a 10-minute drive to the east, so although Sea Horse Ranch with its Dominican Republic villas is pretty much a destination in itself, the very cosmopolitan charm of Cabarete's myriad bars, cafes, restaurants, shops is on the doorstep. Kite Beach - devoted to the rapidly developing sport of kite-boarding is only 5 minutes' drive Encuentro Beach (Playa Encuentro) - top surfing beach of the area, also 5 minutes' drive. Sosúa has a pretty horseshoe shaped bay, with clear waters, great for scuba diving & snorkeling on the reef. Sosúa has good supermarkets Golfers are well-catered for, with the Playa Dorada Robert Trent Jones course being 25 minutes' drive
Getting around
The villa is brilliantly located in the area of Sea Horse Ranch, CLOSEST to the ocean - so 2 minute's walk from the villa brings you to 3 private beaches, double oceanfront pools and the Beach Club. There are tennis courts and riding stables within our community too. So walking is a great way to enjoy the place. There is the option of renting a car, or using local taxis or joining a tour for excursions, further afield. Many guests enjoy staying local to the Ranch.. and so make a couple of outings by taxi for supermarket shopping etc. The choice really depends on what sort of vacation you are after. SHR has it all!
