A spacious 7000 sq ft beach front villa located between the two small towns of Cabarete and Sosua. Tranquility, safety, full-time private maid service. Beautiful master suite, with second floor bedroom with its own private patio and full ocean/beach view. Four additional bedrooms, three with King-sized beds, one with two Full-sized beds, are located in a separate guest house that is essentially connected to the main villa just a few steps through a beautiful tropical interior/exterior garden. (Six bedrooms total at this villa) The large private pool and spa is perfect for a cool-down or a warm-up.
The large 'Yoga Room' on the second floor provides a private space for Yoga and meditation, and a complete surround sound theater/media room when you prefer that to stretching.
A security guard at the front gate and on-site security ensures that your visit to Villa Gordon will be as safe as it is beautiful and relaxing. The best surfing and kite-surfing in the Caribbean is just a short walk down the beach. Personal chef services can be arranged, so who has to worry about cooking? There is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Dominican Republic is known for its beautiful weather, without end,
because of its almost year-round warmth and sunshine, some people refer to the Dominican
Republic's climate as 'endless summer.' The temperature on the island remains fairly consistent at around 77 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year. Generally, the whole
island is sunny with tropical weather. The change in seasons is determined more by the annual rainfall then by the temperature. May to October are considered the summer months on the Dominican Republic. This is usually the hottest time of year. Highs reach
about 87 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, with the nighttime low around 72 degrees Fahrenheit. During the high season, the humidity is low, and there is less rainfall on the island. Evenings are noticeably cooler during November to April in comparison to the summer months.

It took only one invitation from friends to visit the DR, and we were hooked. We built on the beach of the North shore near Cabarete, because this was a safe, tranquil, pristine location. Beautiful ocean, excellent restaurants nearby and at the property. Surfing, kite-surfing. Friendly people, and the most relaxing environment possible. Definitely not a tourist trap, and not like the a typical 'I look like every other Caribbean Tourist Resort.' It just could not be better. We just had to be there!
Gordon purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Gordon chose
Beautiful, Tranquil, Safe, Relaxing, The perfect place to go for vacation, Golfing, Fishing, and the best Surfing and Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing in the Caribbean. Go horseback riding on the beach. Small gated resort property with an outstanding restaurant just a 2 minute walk from the villa (by land, or by the beach), and they will even deliver to the villa.
What makes this Villa unique
Located directly on the beach/ocean. Daytime cook service provided (breakfast and lunch). Waking up with that view, and walk the short distance through the back yard to have coffee at the marble table at the top of the sand dune is the best way for us to start the day. This is a real 'low blood pressure zone' location. DINING INFORMATION On the resort property, itself, there is a grass-roofed cabana bar and restaurant, Chez Arsenio. Arsenio is an excellent chef, and will make anything you wish. About 5 kilometers to the East is Cabarete, and there are multiple beach front restaurants and clubs (including an Irish Pub of all things), with table seating on the beach, local musicians, very wide beach, an occasional bonfire, and very interesting people watching. Many of the establishments become “discos” late at night. There are casinos very near by. There is a DVD rental store located on the near side of Cabarete from the villa making access to DVD rental movies convenient. This is a private, peaceful location in a security gated area. The undeveloped land immediately adjacent to Villa Gordon will usually have on display early in the morning, a burro (local celebrity) with his attendant white egrets, an occasional American Kestrel perched high on a branch of an adjacent dead tree, and perhaps the horses that are boarded at the resort for riding on the beach will be grazing there as well. You can walk to the cabana bar/restaurant to rendezvous with others for a late afternoon tropical beverage, and to eat. This is a small resort area and the beach is also very unpopulated. There are many sails in the sky on windy afternoons as this is a very popular kitesurfing/kiteboarding area. The “subdivision” is gated. The guards and maintenance people are the friendliest you will ever meet.

Stunning villa in paradise
Just got back from Villa Gordon and had a fantastic time. The villa has everything you need and Johanny took great care of us. Gordon does a great job of preparing visitors by providing helpful videos regarding the villa's amenities. We maxed out at 12 people and everyone loved the place. We used Gordon's recommended driver Franklin and never worried about getting to or from any of the local attractions. We were all sorry to have to leave.
Huge house on the beach
Good location and the owner Gordon is super helpful.
I am glad that your family enjoyed their stay at Villa Gordon. There is much to enjoy at that location.
Beautiful, family-friendly getaway!
This is the second year in a row that my family, along with 2 other families, made the trip from NYC to the Dominican Republic for our winter break. We came back a second time because there is no other place on earth like Villa Gordon! From the house staff, to the driver, to the security detail, to the owner himself, we were treated like family and couldn't have asked for a nicer group of people to help make our vacation so memorable. The location is truly magical. But, the homemade Dominican food that was prepared for us every day was exceptional and truly worth the trip. A big thank you to Gordon for being so accommodating! We absolutely love your house and look forward to coming back next year. :-)
We stayed at Villa Gordon with another family that included two sets of grandparents and a three year old. There were 14 of us in total. The house was very nice and the maids were great! Our driver Franklin was the best and made our trip more enjoyable. The views were great and we were able to go in the ocean on our last day. The tide was low and it was safe. Our favorite beach was Playa Grande. Everyone there knew Franklin and we got first rate treatment! The security guards on the grounds were also great. They would cut down coconuts for us to enjoy. Really can't complain. Accommodations were comfortable for the size of our group. The owner Gordon was fantastic at helping to answer all of our questions in a speedy way. Gave us great tips and everything went smooth.
Fabulous Family Vacation
We had a family of 12 people, a mix of grandparents, adults, teen and children. Our vacation started with our airport ride from Santiago to Villa Gordon with Franklin our driver. We didn't notice that the hour and twenty minutes from airport to Villa Gordon was long since it went by very quickly with a lot of laughs and our driver was very informative in giving us a site seeing tour of the island.
We also relied on Franklin for our other excursions: 27 waterfalls, trips to Sosua, Monkey Jungle and trips for shopping.
Once we arrived at Villa Gordon, we were greeted by our two maids, who were friendly and helpful. The house was amazing, the view spectacular, beyond our expectations. Plenty of space or everyone. the kids hit the pool and hot tub while the adults relaxed with a glass of wine.
We had the house stocked with groceries, supplies, beer and wine before we arrived which was key for us on our first day.
Arsenio from Chez Arsenio restaurant showed up at our request for dinner that night and subsequent nights as requested. Food was excellent and service was superb.
Don't be too concerned with the security guards, the head security guard was extremely friendly and they went out of their way to watch over us. We were very appreciative of them especially when my granddaughter ran each morning on the beach. The owner Gordon was very responsive and provided us with all lot of information needed before our travel date.
All in all it was one of our best vacations.
Thank you, Patricia, for taking the time to share your family's wonderful experiences at Villa Gordon.
I understand how difficult it can be to try to find certainty in picking a destination that is safe, and has something (much) to enjoy for young and old alike.
I am glad that your family had the great experience shared by so many of my guests.
Kind regards to all of you,
Amazing house and staff!
We stayed at Villa Gordon with our 3 children and 2 other families. This house is convenient to the airport and so easy with kids. The house is beautiful and so relaxing with a pool right on the beach. The staff are second to none! The maids and cooks are the nicest people and make wonderful breakfasts and local food. Franklin, the driver, was a highlight. Always smiling and all 7 kids loved him. Gordon was extremely helpful and set us up to have a very easy and laid back trip. I think we're going to make Villa Gordon an annual vacation. We can't wait to return!
Thank you, Whitney. This has been a favorite location enjoyed by many of my past guests with children of all ages. Your return will be welcomed! Your kind words are appreciated. Gordon
Exercise: Within a few kilometers is a beautiful gym and yoga site where you can buy individual sessions or packages during your stay. Top notch workout equipment, trainers, and yoga instructors are available at MiGym, if you wish to join a group or schedule a private training or yoga session. Massage therapy is also available at multiple locations, and one is only a 10 minute walk on the beach.
Clubs, casinos and dance locations are located in many locations in Cabarete, Sosua, Puerto Plata. One casino is located about 2 kilometers from the villa.
Tours of the mountains, the inland areas, Blue Lagoon, whale watching in Samana, scuba diving, snorkling, and deep sea fishing can be arranged. If you can think of it, it is probably available and the 'conceirge/front office manager' can make those arrangements for you. (No snow skiing or snow boarding is available, however!)
