Private villa rentals have gone a long way since its introduction in the Dominican Republic, around the early 1970`s in Casa De Campo. The next decade saw a boom in the resort industry, parallel to the creation of new luxury villa communities in the East ( Bavaro, Punta Cana ) and North of the Dominican Republic ( Sosua, Cabarete, Cofresi, Costambar, and later Cabrera).
SELECTION OF SOSUA BACHELOR PARTY VILLA RENTALS:
Soon events like birthdays, weddings, and even bachelor parties were taken to private villas due to their convenience and privacy. Places like Sosua became the focus of mass tourism seeking to throw the bachelor party of a lifetime, and gated communities started to set the rules to control the influx of single guys groups booking villas to spend several days of partying, disco life and mingling with locals ( mostly women ).
This lead to noise control and access rules for local guests ( locally known as Chicas ); to the point that many communities banned bachelor parties altogether because the term was now widely used as a lifestyle travel motto, blurring the line between the actual event and an almost addictive, relatively new coined cultural trait of the adventure solo traveler.
Sosua bachelor parties news spread quickly among US cities like New York, Miami, Washington and more, and soon rental agencies had to find alternate villa rentals outside of restrictive gated communities to allow larger groups that would eventually become impossible to have next to any next door neighbors. About 40% of bachelor party renters visiting Sosua will be noisy, and 60% stay below the allowed db levels if requested to do so ( specially in a written and signed rental contract ). Guest friendly rentals became synonymous with parties, so those better be well away from gated communities where families prefer to keep the Chicas and parties away from their surroundings.
A responsible booking agent will make sure that the villa being rented is located at a good distance from neighbors, preferably outside of a gated community so as not to disturb any neighbors.
