About the neighbourhood
Unique property located on the beach in the village of Layou. Bed sit apartment with a sleeping loft downstairs and an open air living area upstairs. 2 bathrooms with showers, 1 in the apartment and one in the open air living area. Situated in the heart of the village of Layou with the Caribbean sea just a few steps from the house and the Layou River available for fresh water bathing. If you want a true picture of life in a Dominican village, The Beach House will give you that. You can enjoy the music of village life. Several local food locations out the front door, grocery store next door. Local bus service on village road, listen for the honking vans. Off road parking, hot water, wireless internet, washer and air conditioning.
Getting around
You can use the local buses easily, they pass in front of the house, or you can walk 5 minutes out to the main road to flag down a bus. We do recommend a rental car, it is just easier to get around the island more quickly.

How to get there

If you don't want to rent a car, Layou is perfect. The local busses run right outside your front door. Because
Layou is centrally located, any bus going north or south passes it.
