This beautiful villa with one story is built on the beach on a parcel of 7079m2 (761498ft2 – 1.77acres). On the same parcel there is also a hotel and restaurant which must be renovated. Both buildings have direct access to the beach and the main road to Cabarete. This property is located east of Cabarete on the main road # 5 to Sabaneta less than 1km (0.6 miles) from the center of Cabarete. The main house has, on the ground floor, a large garage with sectional doors for 2 cars, a large storage room that can be converted into a studio with direct access to the garden. The first floor can be reached by a monumental staircase in the front yard. Here there are three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, large open kitchen (only kitchen furniture), big living room overlooking the ocean. The house needs inside and outside some freshening. The hotel and restaurant should be renovated and offers 6 guest rooms. On the ground floor there is a large covered terrace which accommodates the hotel reception and dining area for the restaurant. Next to the building there’s a big parking space for the guests. The property is a perfect investment due to the great potential needs in Cabarete for night accommodation and dining. In addition, the property is located in a quiet area, right on the main road and far away from the traffic in the center of Cabarete.

When buying a home, the following cost will be incurred by the Buyer.
The closing costs are calculated as follows:
- Transfer tax and stamp duty. Taxes are paid based on the market value of the property as determined by the tax authorities, not on the price of purchase stated in the deed of sale.
- Title transfer
- Notary fees
Properties held in the name of an individual are subject to an annual property tax (“IPI”) of 1% of government-appraised value in excess of RD$6,500,000 pesos except for empty lots or farms outside city limits and properties whose owner is 65 years old or older, who has registered it in his or her name for more than 15 years and has no other property.
If the property is held by a corporation, no property tax is due. Instead, the corporation must pay a 1% tax on corporate assets.
However, any income tax paid by the corporation will constitute a credit toward the tax on assets, so that if corporate income taxes paid are equal to or higher than the taxes on assets due, the corporation will have no obligation to pay taxes on its assets.
