“paradise in Sosua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

Casa21 is absolutely my favorite place on the entire island of Dominican Republic!! It's a luxurious, cosy and trendy place and thanks to Mark and Saskia it felt like a little piece of home that I took to Dom Rep! They both made my stay a time never to forget and definitely, next time when I go back to Sosua I will plan my stay in their gorgious rooms and spoil myself with the delicious food Mark cooks in the restaurant :) I seriously can't wait!!!! Everybody who wants to relax and enjoy all the good things in life should go to Casa21. Satisfaction guaranteed!!! :) Thanks my dear Mark and Saskia!!!!

from the first email contact regarding a reservation, to the tearful goodbye at the end of our stay at casa 21, saskia and mark were wonderful.

i had planned this as a birthday/anniversary trip- but it turned into much more. after staying at casa 21, we actually feel as though we have our own piece of paradise, and we cannot wait to return.

i cannot say if the plush rooms (with the finest linens), the amazing food (EVERYTHING was great) or the new friendship we found are our favorite part of this trip.

we did have the breakfast package, which we highly recommend (see photos) and david can make the BEST cocktails by the pool. (even if it's just a presidente)

so, we relaxed on the most gorgeous beaches, we dined by sunset at the pool and zip-lined thru the jungle. what more can you ask for? honestly we were so content not even leaving the premises- we were truly pampered from breakfast til bedtime!

i must add that the excursions saskia planned for us were perfect! never did i imagine zip-lining or horseback riding thru the jungle up a mountain to the most breathtaking waterfall (we got to swim there!!)

we cannot wait to return to this piece of paradise we can now call our own~

When my wife and I first started the process of finding a vacation destination for our five year wedding anniversary, we were overwhelmed at all of the destinations that we had to choose from. In short, just let me say that we could not have picked a better place to go. When we read all of the reviews of Casa 21 we thought to ourselves, this place sounds perfect, let's do it! Upon our arrival we knew that we had chosen the right place. When we arrived we were greeted by the two most gracious hosts that I have ever encountered. Saskia and Marc overwhelmed us with their hospitality and the beauty of their "paradise" in the D.R. For one week (we wish it had been more), Saskia, Marc, and their amazing staff catered to our every desire, and nothing was left out. They absolutely think of everything that will make your stay more pleasurable and relaxing.
I cannot say enough about their wonderful staff, as they took care of everything we needed or wanted. David, who is an amazing waiter, took such pride in his work and it showed in everything that he did. And he always had a wonderful smile on his face. Thank you David for eveything! They also had Tineke visiting for the summer from Belgium. She was a wonderful hostess & server. Juana is their do it all cleaning lady and she as well took great pride in her work as you could tell because the accomadations are immaculate. And Blanquito, Saskia & Marc's dog, watched over the hotel - he always let us know when someone was coming.
That brings me to the food. What else can I say except, WOW. Marc, who calls himself a hobby chef, is simply amazing at what he does. The food was impeccable with all the flavor profiles working together. I too am a chef, and I thought the food was amazing and beautifully presented. They use nothing but fresh ingredients that are locally sourced, which really separates them from the rest. Every dish is well thought out. Well done to Marc and his talented kitchen staff, BRAVO!!
In closing I would just like to say that we will definitely be returning to Casa 21 as much as we can and I can honestly say that I have never been more taken care of at a vacation destination! Casa 21 has set the bar very high, and I don't think anybody, anywhere, can do better.
Can't wait to return and see our friends at Casa 21 in 2013.

Casa Veintiuno exemplifies simple elegance. This secluded spot, with just three guest rooms, is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Here, you can forget the world outside with all its pressures and allow yourself to be pampered. And pampered you are.
Saskia and Mark are the ultimate hosts. Nothing is too much for this wonderful couple and their amazing staff. No detail is left to chance and they seem to anticipate your every wish. The service is impeccable but unassuming, so while your every desire is attended to, you never feel smothered.
Saskia is “front of house”. Her warmth and charm, infectious; her style and attention to detail, impeccable.
Marc bills himself a “hobby chef”. He is ever so humble! The food at Resto 21 is first class, imaginative and frankly amazing…there is simply no need to go anywhere else.

Breakfasts are a feast for the eyes as well as the tummy with the freshest fruits, locally baked breads, homemade jams and jellies, eggs prepared any style, perfect Belgian crepes, great coffee. Oh and the daily smoothies!

Retire to the pool for a morning of reading, lounging and swimming. Then time for lunch. A crisp, cold bottle of white wine to complement…..oh what to have? It doesn’t matter what you choose. Everything is superb. Then back to the pool until early evening – perhaps a cold beverage or two in the interim and then off to the room to get ready for those leisurely, intimate and delicious poolside dinners.

From the moment you arrival at Puerto Plata Airport to the time you leave, you feel like an honoured guest in a very dear friends home. And by the end of our 9 day stay, we did indeed consider them dear friends.

Thank you marc and saskia, for your incredible hospitality. Thank you David, server with the most incredible smile. Thank you Juana for keeping the Casa spotlessly clean. Thank you to the two wonderful sous chefs. We know Marc does not do it alone. Thank you Tineke – server, pool girl, song writer, Blanqito trainer and all around amazing young woman. Thank you Blanqito for guarding the fort! Our vacation would not have been the same without each and everyone of you. We will see you again in March. Can’t wait!

From the moment that we arrived at Casa Veintiuno, Saskia, Marc, & their friendly, smiling staff treated us like we were old friends, taking great pains to see that they catered to our every whim. The personal attention that we received cannot be duplicated. We were in the Dominican Republic for our son's wedding in Santiago. Saskia made all the arrangements for our trip to & from the wedding, so that all we had to do was to go & enjoy ourselves. The grounds & rooms were absolutely immaculate & tastefully decorated. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, & it was superb in quality & quantity with fresh fruits, pastries, meats, cheeses, or whatever else we wanted. Staying there was like a fantasy, we could never have believed it would be that good. We can't wait to go back, it's always great to spend time with old friends.
