Tropical landscape, right on the beach Villa Chillax is the perfect get away or family vacation spot. Not big on sand we also have a private pool. Cabarete is world renown for its wind surfing and kite boarding beaches. The area has so many things to offer or just sitting on the terrace looking at the ocean sipping a mojito.
Villa Chillax has 3 king and one queen size bed, all with the finest extra thick pillow top mattresses and 100% cotton sheets. Comfy furniture and a great staff makes Villa Chillax the perfect spot.
Why the Owner Chose Cabarete: Great beaches, easy to get to. Cabarete is a very special place. There are so many activities in the area besides water sports. Hiking and mountain biking cascading water falls, even caves.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The Villa is great. You can sit on the terrace and look out over the ocean of float in the pool, all very private.
Our family of six includes two over 70, two in their 40's and two teenagers--and we were ALL happy with Villa Chillax--and hated to leave after our one-week stay. The house, the pool, the beach, the ocean view, the wonderful housekeeper who came every day; the security guards, who really watched over us--especially teens on the beach; and cook, who's a master in the kitchen, all made it a special time for us. Each person we dealt with met or exceeded our expectations.
We arrived shortly after a storm, so our beach had debris and some erosion to the banks, which made getting down to the beach a little challenging, but that certainly wasn't the fault of the owner...just a result of Mother Nature having recently done her thing! And when we had a problem with an air conditioner, manager Peggy responded promptly and efficiently. We even loved the one-day rain because there were lots of board games to choose from, which were fun for a family which seldom plays games at home. Zip-line experience was fun for the kids and, though a bit pricey, worth the cost.
The wi-fi and telephone service to U.S. were bonuses. Restaurants along the beach were excellent (Martini's at Cabarete East...a short beach walk from our Villa, had good food and great banana mamas. They don't take credit cards, so plan to pay cash). A one-morning shopping spree satisfied the teens' need to shop, but mostly we were on the beach, in the pool, relaxing on the marvelous porch overlooking the ocean. We don't recommend renting car (drivers there just know two words: GO FAST), but cabs aren't expensive and are readily available.
In summary: Villa Chillax is a wonderful place!
Recommended for: Families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers, tourists without a car.
Manager response: Thanks, hope you come again soon.

We just returned from a week long stay at Villa Chillax and had a fantastic time. The property was exactly as described: Beach front, private pool, relaxing, plenty of privacy, spacious, clean, and comfortable. The friendly property manager was extremely helpful...What more could you ask for?! I would absolutely plan a repeat trip to both Cabarete and Villa Chillax.

Manager response: Thank you so much for your kind words, we look forward to your return.
