  • Trip of a Lifetime!

    "We visited this villa in Puerto Plata from March 25 until March 29 this past week. It was FABULOUS. There were 13 of us celebrating my Mother's 80th birthday and every one of us had an extraordinary amount of space in this gorgeous, spotless home. There is plenty of sun and shade for everyone and the house can accommodate any age. Mercy, Ingrid and Julio took such good care of us that we could not possibly "want" for a thing. The food was amazing and it just kept coming. Each breakfast, lunch and dinner was a surprise (Julio offered to show us but we didn't want to know) and Mercy is the best cook out there. The food, drinks, everything were so amazing, we were all stuffed to the gills after each meal. There are things to walk to very nearby, but the home was so lovely we just did not want to leave. Amazingly, there are air conditioning units in every single bedroom so you can remain cool at night and sleep like a top. There is WiFi so you don't have to miss out on posting to FB or to Twitter so everyone knows what a fabulous time you are having! The owner of this home is unbelievably accommodating, understanding and just wants to share this lovely experience with you. She sent us beautiful documents which outlined every single thing about the place. I printed a bunch and passed them out so people could read up on them before the trip. For example, the home has both 220 and 110 voltage so you don't need your converters. Many of the paintings in the home were painted by the owners Mother and you can just feel the love and coziness, even though the house is so big. Julio was so accommodating. We all came in from the airport together, but needed a separate trip to pick up a family member. Julio always got us everywhere we needed to be on time. He is just wonderful. The entire family is warm and gracious. There is a safe for valuables and a security guard who stays around the place all night. We hired a local photographer to come to the house for a family portrait. This was a wise decision because the pictures turned out gorgeous. I cannot thank this owner and her staff enough for these unbelievable memories that we all have. I will definitely want to return! We all loved it, especially the birthday girl!"

  • Spectacular! Can't wait to come back!

    "We had the vacation of a lifetime at Villa Mashek! When we walked through the front door, it literally took our breath away! The home is right out of a movie. Gorgeous sweeping views from the open living room over the infinity pool. The staff was beyond gracious and accommodating and very patient with our limited/creative attempt to speak in Spanish. We were able to communicate everything we needed and never had a problem! Everything is close by, the lovely town of Las Terrenas as well as all the exciting activities in Samana. Scott and Jan gave us great ideas for horseback riding, hiking, local excursions...even zip lining! It was an extraordinary vacation! I look forward to coming back and will tell all my friends to visit Villa Mashek as well! Thank you for your gracious hospitality! Jennifer Aries"

  • Destination wedding - The best place to stay in Casa de Campo!!

    "My daughter had her heart set on a destination wedding in Casa de Campo. We chose this villa because of the convenient central location within Casa de Campo. Little did we realize that this wonderful villa and it's amazing staff would become the centerpiece for an unforgettable wedding. Housekeeping Staff - Did I mention the staff? Simply Amazing. Had we known that our laundry would be washed and pressed the same day, we would have brought less clothes! We gave them cash and asked them to go to the store and buy ingredients to prepare a traditional Dominican dinner. What they prepared for us was out of this world delicious!! Every meal was outstanding. We were in a hurry on the day of the wedding, so I ran out and picked up lunch meat and condiments. Somehow those ingredients were turned into gourmet sandwiches. We could have eaten at any number of wonderful restaurants nearby, but my family preferred to dine at the large table overlooking the pool for every meal. The combination of the delicious food, the pampered service and the gorgeous views all with my family will provide a lifetime of wonderful memories. Location/Transportation - We had wedding guests staying at the hotel, at other villas and even at the marina. The two golf carts supplied with the villa made visiting everyone a breeze. If someone needed something from the grocery store we would just hop in a golf cart and it was a quick 5 min ride away. We also took the golf carts to the shooting range, the golf course, the quaint village of Altos de Chavon (where my daughter was married). You MUST visit Altos de Chavon!!!! We never needed or wanted a car, very relaxing. Accommodations - The villa has the elegance and casual comfort of a Ritz Carlton. The indoor/outdoor living areas are so relaxing and full of nature, and the pool with a built-in hot tub is the perfect size. Summary - No one wanted to leave!!! We were so comfortable and relaxed in spite of a hectic wedding event. My family is still raving about the food and the pampered service. The combination of a beautifully appointed villa in a convenient location with a world-class staff, provided us with a perfect destination wedding!!! We are already planning a return family retreat for next year. Roy, you promised we would be impressed, and you were right!!"
