3. Rental Agreement: You must sign our standard rental agreement and liability waiver. Once you book, we will send you our standard terms and conditions via DocuSign for your endorsement. We require your name, physical address, email, and phone number.

4. Satisfaction: We like to speak to our guests in person on the phone before we book. This is often not possible due to wholesalers' rules and regulations.

Please note that our Rental Agreement and Liability Waiver will supersede any prior agreements if your reservation was made through a wholesaler or travel agent.

9. We will answer all questions via text on any wholesaler's message portal and respect them as our partners. Still, we really like to speak to our guests personally on the phone before they book to ensure they understand everything about the villa, the locale, and the D.R. in general. After booking, we work closely with our guests to ensure a flawless vacation and help you with general information.

10. Yet, I am the only Brian Vandenbroucke in the United States, so I am easy to find. M-o-o-n-c-o-t-t-a-g-e

Encuentro beach , Cabarete, Dominican Republic

The best way to get here is to fly into either Puerto Plata (POP), a 20-minute drive, or Santiago Airport (STI), a 90-minute drive. But absolutely beautiful. We will send a private driver for you, and prices vary depending on the distance, but they are affordable. Our drivers are reliable, safe, and responsible. Driving here is challenging, leave it to the professionals. We are located near Perla Marina between Sosua and Cabarete on Highway 5.
