About Us


Following a God given dream Canadians Michael and Laura Boisclair moved to the Sosua, Dominican Republic to build and operate a Christian Mission House. It is amazing to see how simple obedience has turned into such a blessing for us to partner with faith based organizations who believe in short term missions.

Over the years we have built many new friendships with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We consider ourselves part of the mission teams by providing short term group accommodations and quality meals for those who are called to work in Sosua, and Puerto Plata area in the Dominican Republic.

Construction began in early 2012 and in April of 2013 the first short term mission team enjoyed their stay with us. Now many years later we can humbly say hundreds of Christians have found Rio Vista Guest House as their home away from home while on Mission in the Dominican Republic.

Laura and I have been given the gift of hospitality. With decades of catering and cooking experience we consider it a great blessing to share our gifts with other believers to support those who want to share Christ’s love with the wonderful people of the Dominican Republic.

It is vitally important to us that Christian Mission Teams have a place to be refreshed, energized, and to relax after spending their day building, caring, and sharing with others while in the warm Caribbean climate.

We invite you to consider Rio Vista Guest House as your destination for short term mission group accommodations. Since we live here in Sosua full time our network of relationships in the area enables us to connect your mission team with other faith based organizations who are full time in the D.R.

If you are interested in doing humanitarian projects and focused on Christian Missions.  We understand the Dominican culture. Together we can accomplish more. We look forward to serving you. Give us a call or email us to discuss in more detail how we can best serve you.
