I know places

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I finally found the perfect place to stay in the Dominican Republic.  Took me 3 days. 🙂 I thought I might need a travel agent. I knew I wanted to go the Caribbean, but I didn’t know which island. Then I narrowed it between Barbados and the DR.

I found a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom villa. Yes, that is WAY too big. But I love the place. It isn’t perfect. But it is perfect as I can find in the DR. Oh, I’m not going until May of 2019 (birthday trip!). And my mom is coming. In 2018, I’m going to Kripalu by myself. So I have the next two years planned. Somewhat. I’m not sure when Gabby Bernstein is going to be at Kripalu.

The villa is about $175 a night. Plus extra fees. Unfortunately. This is at the very high end of my budget. I have a few lower priced places I’m also considering. But I’m in love with this place. It has 3 master bedrooms. My room will be the master bedroom with the balcony (pic below). This place also has a Jacuzzi. However, like almost all the places in the Dominican Republic electricity must be paid based on usage. Using the Jacuzzi like I did in Asheville, NC would cost a lot since the water heater must be used. So I probably will only use it once.

Anyway, it is a 5-minute walk to the private beach. Picture time! Here is the private beach:


I have to have a balcony/patio. This place has more than one balcony. This is how you enter the property. Isn’t it great that this is the first thing you see? **drool**


This is going to be my master bedroom. There are 3 master bedrooms (with bathrooms en suite).  I’m picking this one because it has a balcony attached.


I’m so excited to go!! Dominican Republic, here I come….in 2019. ha.
