Safe, Peaceful, Gorgeous

Whether you’re relocating within the same city or a new country, safety is (of course), one of the biggest concerns to address. When moving abroad, it can be particularly daunting to decide which countries are safe and comfortable enough to reside in for the long term. The Dominican Republic is one of the safest locations in the Caribbean, and with the same general precautions you would take anywhere else (avoiding walking around late at night with valuables, locking things away when not home, staying alert in new areas, etc), you’ll likely be just fine on the island. In addition, Casa Linda’s gated community offers 24/7 security for residents, meaning you’ll always have peace of mind here in the DR, as well as if you need to return home to your previous country of residence for a period of time. As local homeowners as well as builders on the island, we know how important it is to feel safe and welcome and strive to create a community that covers both of these aspects in full. With many fellow retirees as your neighbours, you’ll have the added comfort of building healthy friendships and relationships with individuals sharing similar experiences.

Your Health Comes First

Second to personal safety, finding reputable and consistent healthcare is one of the most important priorities for any expats, especially for retirees and other individuals looking to relocate who may have existing medical conditions. Unlike many tropical destinations across the globe, the Dominican offers a stable foundation with all modern conveniences and services, including a world-class healthcare system featuring highly trained professionals that offer services in English. With state of the art facilities readily on hand and almost no wait times, you can rest assured that your healthcare needs will be met with the same expertise as back home, often at a much cheaper cost!

Unbeatable Weather

It’s no surprise that one of the biggest appeals when it comes to moving to the island is the ability to leave winter weather behind. If you’re tired of shovelling endless amounts of snows, we’re more than happy to welcome you to our corner of paradise! The DR is the perfect spot for anyone who enjoys golf, tennis, snorkelling, and, of course, endless sunny days; we have over 200 every year!

Choose A Casa Linda Villa For Your Next Home

With floor plans available from 2-bedroom bungalows to large homes up to 5-bedrooms, there’s a custom villa available in Casa Linda that’s perfect for everyone. Each custom-built villa has a private swimming pool, landscape services, and plenty of options for customization.

New Ambar Coast Highway from Puerto Plata to Santiago Will Cut Travel Time to a Half Hour

New Ambar Coast Highway

 

Puerto Plata to Santiago in a Half Hour

Residents of both Puerto Plata and Santiago will enjoy a  much shorter drive between the two cities.

The construction of the Ambar Coast  Highway is a critical roadwork that will link the north coast to the major centre of Santiago and will cut travel time by over half.  The 35 -kilometre road will take just 30-minutes to travel, making commuting from the north coast to Santiago a very pleasant, quick drive.  This is perfect for our Residencial Casa Linda owners and renters.  Many of our owners go to Santiago for large scale shopping trips to big box stores like Ikea and Bellon, as well as to several shopping malls, theaters and other services that can be found in a city of a million people. A shorter, safer drive makes this a fun day trip with lots of time to enjoy the city and get back home.

 

Santiago has excellent large hospitals like HOMS – and for full time residents receiving treatment, this is a much shorter drive.  The Dominican Republic is a destination healthcare area.  A half-hour drive means that renters can stay in Casa Linda and drive to Santiago to see doctors and receive hospital treatments.

 

Robotic Surgery at HOMS HOspital Santiago

For travelers coming in or out of the Dominican Republic to Casa Linda, Santiago airport will now be a viable alternative to landing in Puerto Plata.  This gives people a larger offering and more options for flights.

Residents of Santiago will have the option of living on the beautiful north coast and commuting to work in the big city.  This will increase the value of all property on the north coast – good news for all current and future villa owners in Casa Linda!

The Dominican Republic Minister of Public Works stated that this highway represents an economic transformation that will guarantee greater security, and directly and indirectly impact almost all sectors of the northern region of the Dominican Republic, and is a “relaunch of regional development”.  He stressed that the highway would be vital to allowing a change in the positioning of the Atlantic coast, providing it with more significant potential as a “thriving” tourist hub.
