If pick up or drop off are in night time (6:00 pm- 8:00 am) the cost is US$250 and USD$ 300, respectively.
We really don't recommend our guests to rent cars as traffic can get very hectic (a lot of people don't respect the traffic signs and there are a LOT of motorcycles), streets aren't well signaled and GPS (or google map) is not to be trusted, as it can take you off roads. We have had guests taking up to 8 hours when we usually take 1.5-2 hours from the airport to the house. Most of our guests who rent cars regret doing so. But of course this is ultimately your decision.
We have a BBQ, but charcoal is not included and is to be bought in the supermarket.
In Punta Rusia there is only a very small market with the most basic items: eggs, salt, sugar, sodas, beer, tropical fruits and vegetables, generic toilet paper and very fresh seafood.
We offer complimentary but limited amounts of coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, toilet paper, body soap, shampoo and conditioner. We also supply unlimited drinking water.
Our maid offers cooking services from USD$20-50 per day depending on how many meals you would like her to prepare (1-3 meals per day). This price includes the cooking service and cleaning the dishes afterwards, all ingredients must be supplied by you. Her specialty is fresh seafood and Dominican food.
We always recommend our guests the use of mosquito repellent and sunscreen, you can get these at the supermarket.
There are no pharmacies or ATM in town, you can find these at the airport or supermarket in the city you fly into.
