Orchid Bay Estates Building Sites – $283,000 – Cabrera
Orchid Bay Estates, the site of some of the most magnificent luxury villas in the Caribbean, is a smallish yet prestigious, gated community discretely located off the beaten path on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. It is part of the charming, rural oceanfront village of Cabrera which is situated on an unspoiled, pristine portion of the north coast.
Orchid Bay Estates boasts three beautiful beaches, each an easy walk from any of the properties in the community. The longest beach, Playa Caleton Grande, is speckled with coconut palms and is a local favorite. Playa Caleton Pequeña is a scant 600’ long with direct access from only three properties making it virtually private. Between these two is Playa Tecera Luna, a cove shaped beach, accessible from one huge property and is totally private.
The services and amenities in Orchid Bay are a minimal. Homeowner fees are approximately $400 per month. This is pretty much all that is needed. There is a gorgeous, well-lit and paved main entry way which is over one kilometer long, multiple security guard shacks and daily manicuring of the completed portions of the community. No one truly manages or controls the community. It is pretty much “self-governed” which illustrates the free and independent nature of the current owners.
Orchid Bay is located mid-way between two International Airports: The new El Catey Airport in Samana is an approximate 45 minute drive to the east, and Puerto Plata’s Gregorio Luperón International Airport is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to the west.
GOLF AT PLAY GRANDE – The first phase of Playa Grande being developed is the Aman Golf Resort which includes: the renovation of the existing legendary Robert Trent Jones Sr. golf course by his son Rees Jones and the development of a 30-suite Aman Resort together with a beach club and a new Aman Clubhouse. This is all only a short drive away.
For culture, shopping and almost everything else you may want or need, the capital city of Santo Domingo is approximately two hours away. The scenic drive will take you past the Los Haitises National Park on state of the art highways. Approximately 1 hour west of Cabrera is the city of Cabarete which has evolved as a world-class destination for kite boarding. International competitions are held here annually for kite boarding, wind surfing and other aquatic sports. The beach has a relaxed atmosphere and is lined with restaurants and bars. It is a favorite meeting place for all types of sports enthusiasts.
