The Caribbean Crib Guesthouse is Located in the town of Cabarete, on the Island of Hispaniola in the Country of the Dominican Republic. The Caribbean Crib was purchased from a descendant of Vincent Van Gogh, his great..great..great? Niece Hillary Van Gogh, in 2005 by two Americans that fell in love with the town of Cabarete, the Island and more importantly the people of the Dominican Republic.
After purchasing the property; which consist of a large villa with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and a small villa with 1 bedroom and bath. The owners set on their quest of improving the property to turn it into a vacation oasis for travels from all over the world. The renovations took 8 months and the Crib officially opened it’s doors to the public in the fall of 2005.
Since then the Caribbean Crib Guesthouse has seen many changes and improvements, as the owners quickly found out that a villa on the beach is extremely susceptible to salty air, and humid conditions that will eat and erode pretty much every thing including stainless steel. The owners are very dedicated to keeping up with the property so that travels can make memories that will last a life time while vacationing at the Caribbean Crib Guesthouse.
If you are interested in renting this property the owners rent the big villa and not the little one, they keep that one for themselves when they are on the island. Which means you may see them during your vacation. The house has a staff, and the main person there is Elizabeth, she cleans daily and takes care of the general needs of the property. Jose is our gardener, he cleans the yard, and beach daily along with the pool. Nidia the chef who is available for hire is one of the best on the island, we were lucky to gain her services.
We also have a dog named pluto on the property he is super friendly with the guest they all have loved him, he is our night security guard.
