Top 5 Customizations to Maximize Your Retirement Villa in Sosua, Dominican Republic

Jun 5, 2024 | Dominican Republic Retirement, Dominican Republic Villas, News

Casa Linda is home to a large community of expat retirees who live full-time in the Dominican Republic! If you are packing up your whole life and moving to another country, your new home should be suited for full-time living rather than a vacation home.

Continue reading to learn about the top five villa customizations Casa Linda recommends to any retiree considering buying a villa in Sosua, Dominican Republic, for full-time living.

Walk-In Closet

For Casa Linda’s snowbird owners, a regular closet is okay because they are only on the island for the winter. However, if you and your partner consider permanently relocating to the Dominican Republic, you’ll want all the space you can get!

The first customization we highly recommend to our full-time owners is expanding the master bedroom’s closet into a walk-in closet. Your wardrobe will undoubtedly expand as you establish a life in the Dominican. It’s better to have more storage, even if you don’t need it right now. After all, when has extra storage space ever been a bad thing?

Kitchen Island

A universal truth is that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Whether that’s back in your home country or a new friend’s kitchen in the Dominican, the kitchen is a gathering place! Food is an integral part of Dominican culture, and that comes with the responsibility to host gatherings and barbecues where everyone comes together to eat, drink and be merry.

Trust us– you’ll want a kitchen island if you live full-time at Casa Linda! It adds extra seating, storage and counter space for meal preparation. Casa Linda’s team of in-house architects will guide you through the customization process. Whatever your specifications are, our team will do everything to make your vision come to life!

From the island’s layout to the countertop material, owners have complete stylistic control!

Additional Storage Room

Every Casa Linda floor plan includes a detached service building for the pool equipment and extra storage space. But, as we said earlier, additional storage is always good, especially for full-time residents and retirees. If you love decorating your home with the seasons, you will need a place to keep your decorations!

Adjustments can be made to the service building to increase the amount of storage space, like increasing the overall square footage and adding built-in shelving.


What paradise would be complete without a jacuzzi to soak in after a long day of surfing or hiking through the mountain trails? Jacuzzis are a very popular villa addition amongst our retirees, for a good reason! Retirement is all about kicking your feet up, being stress-free and living the good life.

Imagine going for a late-night soak in your jacuzzi: the jets massaging your aches and pains away, a cool tropical breeze blowing through your hair, the twinkling night sky, and an ice-cold cerveza in your hand. Life is good, especially at Casa Linda.

Your Villa, Your Way

Over the last 40 years, Casa Linda has been home to a growing community of expats from all over the world. Casa Linda’s gated community is located between the lovely beach towns of Sosúa and Cabarete on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.

You can choose between 15 different villa models that are customizable to your taste. Outside of your budget, the only limit is your imagination!
