A  person that uses a wheelchair is not handicapped by his/her condition, but because the building and surroundings are not as accessible as they should be. The extent of the handicap relates to accessibility, and a person can be very independent if the housing was built with more accessible, universal features that meet a broader range of needs. A barrier-free house must have special built-in features besides the fixtures, such as:

  • lowered window heights

  • sliding doors in cabinets, closets and storages

  • recessed sliding door tracks

  • large turning radius for wheelchair use inside the bathrooms

  • wide doors and thresholds, double doors

  • lower cabinet heights in the kitchen and bathrooms

  • adapted appliance switches to match wheelchair's height

  • lower height vanities in the bathrooms

  • clear path from the house to the garage

  • ramps and grab bars as needed

  • Raised electrical outlets for easy reach

  • large door handles made of stainless steel, grab bar type.

Golden Treasures is the only real estate agency that caters to people with special needs, and also does wheelchair access vacation rentals in the North coast of the Dominican Republic. We design a layout for your villa if the existing ones are not adaptive enough to your needs.

The layout of the Villa Ultima was conceived with accessibility in mind, and for large groups of visitors. Its four bedrooms are comfortably designed for privacy, and as you can see this is a one floor villa with flat surfaces, easily custom-built for wheelchair users.

The width and length of the areas are roomy enough throughout the house, and can be ordered following your personal instructions as to how high we should place the kitchen counter, cabinets, appliances and other details. The same principles are applied in the bathrooms and bedrooms.

We work with well established construction companies in the area.
