Welcome to this amazing property in the heart of the surf town paradise of the Dominican Republic, Playa Encuentro. This is a 2 bedroom house plus a detached 1 bedroom house with the potential to build up to a 3rd floor or create an upscale backyard you will love.

This 456 sqm property is truly unique as it has been crafted from locally sourced materials, providing a unique blend of modern design meets natural sustainable building.

The centerpiece of the property is an open concept two-bedroom home designed with comfort and functionality in mind. The spacious living area features large sliding doors that allow the living room, dining area, and kitchen spill out into your own private garden.

Next to the full sized kitchen there is a spacious storage room that contains the back up power inverter. On the other side of the kitchen is a full bathroom. Upstairs there are 2 bedroom, each with ocean views, that share a large terrace and a full bathroom.

Now, let’s explore the second structure on the property, a charming one-bedroom haven. This self-contained unit is perfect for guests or generating additional rental income. On the ground floor is one bedroom with AC, full bathroom and closet. Then on the second level of this structure is an open air, kitchen and living room with ocean view.

The last structure is not permanent, it is a Taino inspired tiki hut with a bed and desk inside. This tiki hut unit earns about $30 USD per night when rented alone or can be rented along with the 2 bedroom house for an extra $15 a night. Behind the tiki hut is an outdoor kitchen complete with sink, bar fridge, and gas stove top.

Building Potential

The possibilities here are endless. Create your own garden oasis, add a refreshing pool, or design a barbecue area for memorable gatherings. The size and layout of the property allow you to embrace your imagination and make it your own. The construction was designed so that a 3rd level can be easily added so you can easily build an additional unit on each of the 2 cement structures.

The outdoor kitchen can be expanded upon to create an impressive outdoor bar area, and the wood shop outside can easily be turned into a guest room or additional rental unit. Currently this property offers a studio, a 2 bedroom, and a 1 bedroom, with an additional investment at least 3 more units can be added to this without using any of the yard space.

Let’s not forget about the location! Situated in the booming capital of surf in the Dominican Republic , you’ll have access to some of the best waves in the Dominican Republic. Enjoy a vibrant community with local shops, restaurants, and a laid-back lifestyle that’s hard to resist. There is also the major convenience of having several restaurants, shops, markets, and attractions all within walking distance.

Playa Encuentro is surf beach community located between Perla Marina and Costa Azul. 

Anyone who owned land in Playa Encuentro 5 years ago has seen its value go up over $120 USD per square meter. The reason this neighborhood has become so popular is because it is centered around the sport of surfing. Cabarete is now officially been named the Surf and Wind capital of the Dominican Republic and the center of surfing is Playa Encuentro. 

What was once just a few villas and condominiums has now grown into a bustling community with a food truck park, 2 skateboard parks, beachfront restaurants, a plaza with shopping, offices, and restaurants, there are 2 separate gyms, and 2 separate stores for groceries, an ATM machine and now 3 schools.

There have been 4 new condominiums built in Encuentro and plans for over 200 more to be completed in the next 5 years. Because of its world class waves, friendly community, and surf tourism, this community has seen incredible growth.  

People wanted to spend time in Playa Encuentro when there was nothing to do but surf, now with its many businesses, people don’t want to and don’t need to leave.
