Aug. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- Being a wheelchair user is not a limitation to enjoy having or renting a Dominican Republic villa, thanks to Golden Treasures real estate in Sosua, Dominican Republic. In another team effort with Casa Linda, this company is offering the successful Villa Ultima as a custom-made wheelchair friendly, universal access home for persons with handicaps that need a barrier free house or villa.

Most vacation rentals or villas for sale in the Dominican Republic and other islands are featured as wheelchair-friendly, but in fact they`re not. The specifications to make a villa or house disabled-friendly are numerous, among them:

-zero step entryway and paths
-wheelchair friendly cabinets
-disabled friendly bathrooms
-ramps and grab bars
-recessed sliding doors in cabinets
-lowered window heights
-enough wheelchair turning space in living areas
-folding seats and grab bars in showers
-lowered power outlets

Wheelchair acess real estate for handicapped persons is rarely found in the Dominican Republic, since most houses and villas were built by people who didn`t have anyone in the family with a disabled condition. Some examples are the exception, and in some cases we have luxury villas from a disabled builder, and condos built with wheelchair-friendly specs, just because wider spaces and flat surfaces are part of the luxury package.

The reality is that in order for a handicapped person to fully enjoy a vacation villa in the Dominican Republic, it is advisable to custom-build it through a reputable company that knows all the angles to cover. Golden Treasures teamed up with three of the most respected construction companies, and North American suppliers of the needed products to make universal access villas a reality in the island.

The company is starting to build the villas and houses in the North coast beach towns of Sosua, Cabarete, Puerto Plata, Cofresi, Cabrera and Samana. Since those areas are still pristine and offer many secluded beaches, Golden Treasures is also offering the only wheelchair friendly vacation rentals in the area, with fully customizable packages according to the person`s condition and special needs.

The handicap accessible real estate will be offered through associations and open marketing, with no extra charge for basic fixtures ( grab bars, shower seats, ramps ) and the option to order certain products from USA suppliers.

One of the best advantages is that disabled persons can now own Dominican Republic villas and also make rental income, because the villas can be put in the general rental pool or just the wheelchair user`s rental pool from the associations. A 10% yearly return is guaranteed by Casa Linda, though it can be higher depending on how many months a year the villa is available for rental when owners don`t use it.

The Dominican Republic has become one of the best Caribbean island destinations for retirement, and the North coast has a large population of expats from all over the world. Most residential communities offer property management services, and Dominicans are very friendly, helpful people. This makes the island a perfect place to go on vacation or purchase your own house or vacation villa.
