Your host, Nikki Wilson, was born and raised in Southern California. She grew up next to the Pacific Ocean and loved the feeling of sand between her toes and the ocean breeze in her face. Having lived in several parts of the United States (Southern California; Breckinridge, Colorado; Jacksonville, Florida; Pearl City, Hawaii and Las Vegas, Nevada) she knew she would one day live next to the ocean. After a successful career as an attorney in Las Vegas, Nikki moved to the Dominican Republic to open “Garden By The Sea.” The move shocked a lot of people. Why leave a successful business and start anew in a different country? Because the ocean continued to call and she had to answer. Her Soul required it!
The property was originally built in the early 90’s as a family compound. Nikki purchased the property in May 2014 and began a total renovation of all the buildings. Finally opening in September 2014, Garden By The Sea is a labor of love. Built to provide her guests with a quiet, tranquil tropical setting where they can enjoy and rejuvenate.
It is her goal to provide each and every guest with a truly memorable experience and to share her love of the Dominican Republic and its people with every guest.
