Properties in the Caribbean are more and more demanded as globalization and new technologies allowing work from home have increased exponentially the number of people living for long periods in warm zones. Making a review on the Caribbean Homes for Sale in a number of zones, Dominican Republic appears as the country absorbing most Real Estate investment.
Should you decide the acquisition of a property, first listen to your feelings and then to your reasoning. Feelings make you Google immediately Caribbean Homes for Sale just in case you can convince your reasoning that you deserve to enjoy winter in paradise.
Landing in a country as Dominican Republic and listening to your feelings is really “dangerous”. Hospitality, smiles and kindness appear intrinsic to the way of life of Dominicans so you metamorphose into a different being. From hard worker, responsible fellow and ambitious person, you discover new luxury: free time, no rush, good weather all year, beauty, friendship even with people you hardly know, comprehension and a long etcetera of small but important details really hard to find in big cities.
After your first impression of falling in love with the country and its people, you need to categorize the Caribbean Homes for Sale appearing in your search by geographical location, climate, security, privacy, views, size, typology, price, style, seniority, amenities and facilities in the zone. What seems a very hard work can be reduced to a minimum of parameters when aiming to just three gated residential communities in Dominican Republic: Casa de Campo, Punta Cana Resort and Cap Cana.
These Communities assure security (physical and legal), privacy, luxury, amenities and facilities, and offers different kinds of Caribbean Luxury Homes for Sale from one bedroom condo to 20 million dollar houses.
Casa de Campo is the eldest Community offering Caribbean Homes for Sale. After more than 70 years, its consolidation is notable and a big variety of homes are available. From affordable while quite old units needing refurbishing to astonishing ocean front villas close to famous Teeth of the Dog Golf Course, from top designer Pete Dye, same as Sawgrass Golf Course that we enjoy every year at The Players.
Altos del Chavon offers Caribbean Homes for Sale with amazing views over Chavon River where famous Apocalypses Now movie was filmed. Also Pete Dye made his chef d’oeuvre with Dye Fore Golf Course. Affordable apartments in 8th hole seem a nice alternative for those aiming to start with a small investment.
The Marina and its surroundings offer luxury apartments and other properties such as big houses with great gardens and swimming pool.
Punta Cana Resort is also consolidated but real estate is not the core business, more centered in the private International Airport of Punta Cana absorbing 65% of the traffic of the country: an enormous business. Nevertheless, Punta Cana Resort offers three typologies of Caribbean Homes for Sale.
Top class Corales, residence of Julio Iglesias, surrounded by Corales Golf Course hosting a PGA Tour tournament since 2018 and designed by greatest golf landscaper Tom Fazio, offers some great Caribbean Homes for Sale with classical architecture style, great ocean views and maximum privacy.
Tortuga and Arrecife offer medium range villas ocean front or close to the beach, around nice golf course designed by Pete Dye’s son, P.B. Dye who also designed Hacienda Golf Course where affordable apartments are offered as well as affordable villas farer from the beach.
Best Real Estate offering appears when arriving to Cap Cana. Just 5 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport, this emerging destination revitalized since 2015 is attracting a number of developers building different typologies from affordable apartments to gorgeous houses.
While many land owners are developing their own house, there are a number of Caribbean Homes for Sale in Cap Cana. Each location has its style, typology and grade of development. Buyers can receive advice from Dunamar Cap Cana, exclusive broker listing the whole inventory of properties on sale, and choose the best option to match their needs and preferences of views, location, proximity to facilities, price or typology.
Marina Cap Cana is the biggest in-land Marina in the Caribbean offering Homes for Sale for boat lovers as well as beach lovers. Marina design allows having your front beach home inside the Marina. Enormous apartments in Aquamarina, Founders or Fishing Lodge are complemented by cute 3 bedrooms villas in Ocean 21, 4 or 5 bedrooms in Villas Marina or astonishing mansions in the Marina Islands.
Juanillo Beach extends for 3.5 miles of white sand made of coral (never burn your feet) spotted with palm trees. It’s perhaps the only place in the Caribbean where no Home is for Sale. Only big lots for just one house each can be bought while existing big mansions are only for owners use, or vacation rentals in very few occasions.
Los Establos is the greatest new equestrian facilities ever seen, including polo, races, jump, pasofino, dressage and any other existing variety. A new development of Caribbean Polo Homes started January 2018 and is already for sale. Ranches of few acres are also for sale, prepared with all luxury facilities that any horses’ lover might imagine.
Punta Espada Golf Course is named best golf course in all Latin America. A Jack Nicklaus Signature with 8 ocean front holes and views to the ocean front 9 more holes. Punta Espada hosted the Champions Tour since 2008 to 2010 with Fred Couples victory and course record as main noted fact. Best golf player ever, Jack Nicklaus made his best course in the Caribbean in 2006 and is ending his second golf course in Cap Cana (Las Iguanas). He also developed Golden Bear Lodge apartments with amazing views to Las Iguanas golf course and the ocean.
Around Punta Espada and Caribbean ocean, multiple homes are for sale. Las Palmas presents affordable villas around holes 6, 7 and 8. Punta Cayuco showcases a number of higher end villas along 5th hole and Punta Majagua along 3rd, while highest end houses border holes 9th, 11th and 15th, elevated more than 30 feet over course level with astonishing views to the ocean. Finally Caleton benefits not only of golf course holes from 11th to 17th but of Eden Roc Caleton Beach Club, an impressive cove operated by most luxurious hotel in Dominican Republic.
