Property description

The villas at the all-inclusive Lifestyles Holiday Vacation Club are just what you are looking for to spend and your next family vacation, getaway with old friends, honeymoon, or just a weekend away. Your 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom vacation home is set in the Lifestyles resort in Puerto Plata. The resort is made of up hotel rooms, apartment suites, and house 'villas,' sort of its own little village. The rooms and villas are scattered among pools, restaurants, bars, beaches, and more. Each villa comes with its own private pool and backyard, offering privacy for your vacation, with the action of the resort being a less than a minutes walk or ride in your complimentary golf cart.

Although many people claim their membership is the highest, our family is actually one of very few sharesholders of the resort. This means as a guest of ours, you will receive all of our benefits- higher than any other guest there. Each time we stay this resort, we are assigned a different and unique villa. This is because the villas are assigned upon reservation. So far, we have liked each one better than the one before, we are always excited to experience different ones! There are a variety of villas across the resort, and each one is beautiful with classic Spanish-Mediterranean architecture. All of the villas feature air conditioning, cable television, ceiling fans, private pools, and shaded patios and verandas. You will also have your own private pool with terrace and garden.

As shareholders, our family has priority booking privileges. We are not always guaranteed a reservation if they are already booked out, but we can certainly reserve them when other members are turned down. We can book 3, 4, 5, and 6 bedroom villas along with suites and penthouses. Always check with us before giving up! If we can't get them, then the resort really is at capacity.

At Lifestyles, you receive all unlimited meals, drinks, activities, services and amenities for the same low daily all-inclusive rate that we as shareholders pay! Some memberships have additional charges for their guests, such as for golf carts, dining, or beaches, but yours are all completely FREE and included in the all inclusive rate! (See below).

You will not owe anything additional for food, drinks, tips, or services (this includes maids and resort workers).

The price for the villa varies by season and can be rented for the week or by the night. Please see the rate descriptions below.

You are also provided with your own personal golf cart to make navigating the property and beaches easy and accessible. You are also entitled to free passes to Ocean World for each vacationing guest.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Hello, our names are Monika and Jaro Ivantysynova. The two of us and our son, Roman, live in Lafayette, Indiana in the US. After moving overseas from Germany in 2005, we have settled down into a comfortable lifestyle and enjoy as much travel as possible. We are both professors of hydraulic engineering, and are happy to say that Roman, who is now in graduate school at Purdue University, has followed in our footsteps. While Roman was growing up, we had the chance to vacation in many places in Europe, and now that he is older, we are so happy to be able to continue our traditions in the Dominican Republic! We hope he can one day bring his own family here to stay.

Why Puerto Plata:
After moving to the United States, we had the opportunity to travel to a lot of different places and explore our options. After our first trip to the Dominican Republic in 2007, we absolutely fell in love with the resort and the people here. The Lifestyles resort offered us with so many options and so many luxuries that we could not have dreamed of affording in Europe! We have everything we could want in this resort- lots to see and do, wonderful food, breathtaking views, but with the right amount of privacy in our individual villa.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Since our first investment in 2007 to the resort, we have continued to upgrade our membership each year to receive all the best benefits, which always turn out worth the money! We are now shareholders in the resort, which is the highest membership possible. This gives us unlimited club access throughout the year to to all the different accommodations at the resort, situated in beautiful surroundings with mountain or ocean views. We also have access to the club’s exclusive VIP amenities which really make this vacation resort a dream come true. There are free airport shuttle transfers as to and from the Puerto Plata International Airport. The resort has mandatory all inclusive fees which vary according to accommodation type and are payable at the resort on arrival. These discounted rates are for members and guest only and the prices cannot be beaten elsewhere. Growing up in the Midwestern part of the United States traveling to these sites will be a dream come true for our family. If you have any questions about the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club or any of our sister resorts please feel free to contact us for details. We hope to be able to help you create and enjoy your dream destination.
