  • Amazing!!!

    "This trip was to celebrate my sons graduation from high school. There was a total of 24 family members and that in itself was stressful, however, this could not have been more of an amazing trip! From the moment that we arrived we were totally pampered. Drinks and snacks were awaiting us as well as the staff taking care of all of our luggage and belongings. Thankfully before we arrived we decided in which order each family would pick there bedrooms. Honestly every room was beautiful so no one was disappointed. The house itself was incredible. The pool was stunning and the view literally took your breath away! Honestly there are no words that could describe the view.There were 12 adults and 12 children ages 8 months to 17. The staff was so accommodating to all of our needs. Every meal they made sure that there were kid friendly items that no matter what the adults ate there was something for the kids which was a huge plus. The food was outstanding! I still crave the avocado salad to this day. One meal was better than the next nd the snacks in between left you satisfied all day long. We did have Gabriel our concierge go out and get extra snacks for the kids as well as any spirits the adults requested. They did have to make several trips during our week stay but that was never an issue. The pool at the house was humongous and there were times that literally we were all in the pool at the same time and probably only took up 1/4 of the space. We took walks down to the beach which I have to say could be treacherous at times but totally worth checking out. The kids gathered shells and the beach was beautiful. We had massages on several days to which the therapists came right to the house. The kids kept busy on the video games and playing ping pong. Some of us went on ATV tours through the mountains as well as going to this amazing park that had zip lines and cliff jumping. Also we visited town and went to this pristine beach that the kids loved. Honestly I didn't know what to expect going into this vacation. There were so many of us going and I wanted to make sure everyone would enjoy themselves and by the end of the week nobody wanted to leave.The highlight of our trip was the bonfire on the beach that the staff put together for my sons celebration. A pig roast at the house and Caribbean festivities on the beach just made the trip! I would go back tomorrow if I could! You were so unbelievably relaxed at all times. This truly was a trip of a lifetime!!!"

  • Had a great time at Villa California

    "I stayed at Villa California with 2 friends for 4 nts. We really enjoyed the stay, would definitely return and highly recommend this place. First of all the owner, Chris, is a stand up guy. He was easily reachable, very patient through all the questions we had beforehand and was kind enough to accommodate an early check in and late check out (due to flight times). There are a lot of things we enjoyed about our stay here. The location is excellent, only a five minute drive to the center of Sosua, about 300 pesos if you cab. Close to the beach, Cabarete, etc. There's also an amazing 2nd floor patio where we spent a lot of time. The house is on a large lot, secured with a gate and at night a security guard would show up and stay till 6am and that was comforting given the house is on a public road and not in a gated community. During the day, the security guard at the compound across the street was extremely friendly and helpful with arranging taxis and directions. Each of the 3 bedrooms had a full ensuite, an AC, ceiling fan, lots of closet space, a safe, and lots and lots of towels and linens. The beds were very comfortable and the entire place was clean upon arrival. The kitchen had all the cooking supplies you need although some were a little worn out. There's a beautiful pool in the front yard and the entire lots is very nicely landscaped and has several coconut trees. The groundskeeper who came daily to tend to the pool and lot was kind enough to chop down and open up some fresh coconuts for us. The entire staff from the groundskeeper, security guard and cleaning lady (she came once during our stay) were really kind and friendly. We made sure that they were all tipped, we shared food and water with them, and made conversation with our broken Spanish. The property manager that greets you upon arrival is very helpful and thorough and easy to reach if you ever have any issues. This is the 4th villa I've rented in the Dominican Republic and would definitely consider staying here again if I'm back in the same area and need 3 bedrooms."

  • About as perfect as it gets!

    "I cannot say enough wonderful things about our week at this beautiful home. We had two families with kids ranging from 8-13 years of age, and every one of us had a fantastic trip. Upon arrival to the villa, we were warmly welcomed by Rafael, Chabella, and Alexandra, and we were immediately struck by the beauty of the house and stunning ocean view. We knew we had a great week ahead, and it didn't disappoint! The home and resort really offers something for everyone. Though we spent much of our week relaxing by the pool, we loved having very easy access to so many activities-- golf, tennis, snorkeling, kayaking, and so much more right at our fingertips. We even managed to watch a polo game, and we were fortunate to see an incredible performance by Andrea Bocelli at the resort amphitheater. As much as we loved all of these great outings, though, honestly the best part was returning to this amazing home and it's wonderful staff. They were so kind, hard working, and made us feel so comfortable in every way. And, wow, Chabella is a great chef! This was a trip we will never forget, and we enjoyed every minute of it."

  • Paradise

    "This was the perfect place for our golf group - 6 of us, all women. The house is simply spectacular, the staff incredible and the owners accommodating beyond our expectations. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. If you want a comfortable place to lay your head at night and fabulous golf during the beautiful Caribbean days this is the place for you!"
