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. 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, microwave, toaster 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. Our home is old and not the focal point of the property. If there are any malfunctions at the house, we have handymen on call and it will be repaired immediately! This is a concrete house with many open air openings. We have little red crabs living in the garden, numerous birds and lizards to watch in the yard all day, and our cats are always around to keep you company. 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 a third 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, drinking water, 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! We can arrange many excursions for our guests, including horseback riding, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, golfing,caving, rafting, etc. If you're looking for eco-friendly lodging, a nature lover's getaway, you found it! Sustainable tourism is important to us. We want people to come, experience our beautiful beach, but we also want to employ our villagers and keep our house's power usage to a minimum. It's unspoiled, and our goal is to keep it that way while allowing others to enjoy it. Transportation can be arrange to/from the Puerta Plata or Santiago airports. Once you and your luggage arrive, you can take public transportation to a grocery store, ATM, restaurants, or nearby excursions. Our caretaker and his family can accommodate any request, including running errands, cleaning, laundry service or even cooking meals, for a reasonable price. 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 our road. 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, and we can always assist with translation difficulties. Our house is your house for the duration of your stay. More

This house is set up right on the beach, if you like waves and rough waters, this is the right spot. The house itself will need more love, amenities are getting old. The fridge is too small and I had to go get food every...More

Thank you so much for your response. That was an odd occurrence with the ocean. The bluff is all repaired now and beautiful again whenever you are ready to return. Safe travels our friends!! Jim and Angie
