About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our unique beautiful beachfront villa has a large pool with a spacious outdoor terrace and an overlook tower with spectacular views of the ocean and our own private sandy beach. The house is a comfortably furnished older beach house. The villa's main floor has a large open living/dining/kitchen area. The covered terrace overlooks the pool and has ample seating and a large table for outdoor dining. There are two queen sized bedrooms on this floor, each with their own private bath. The separate lower living area has a king size bedroom with a private bath and a twin bedroom with it's own private bath. The house may not be suitable for very young children due to the fact that the lower level is only accessable from the outside, not from the upper level. All of the bedrooms have A/C. Recent updates include an updated kitchen and a very large outdoor charcoal BBQ.

Price includes; full maid service, a caretaker/maintenance person, a security guard, all within a secure walled compound. Our maid is available to prepare meals for an additional fee, $10 (US) for breakfast and lunch, $15 (US) for dinner, plus the cost of food. There is 24/7 electricity.

The villa is 5 minutes (by car) from Cabarete, 15 minutes (by car) from Sosua, and 20 minutes (by car) from the Puerto Plata airport. It's a 20-30 minute walk to Cabarete. A car is not absolutely necessary, however, we recommend that clients consider renting one. The villa is east of Cabarete, near the Parasio Tropical Hotel (formerly the Sea Grape Hotel). Cabarete has several grocery stores, and a wide variety of restaurants and bars for all tastes and budgets.

About The Owner

We are currently living and working in the Washington DC area and eventual plan on retiring to our island retreat.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2000

Why The Owner chose Cabarete

We looked at a number of islands in the Caribbean before we purchase this property. It was love at first sight! The area is not over developed but has plenty of potential, it attracts young and vital people from a variety of countries.

What makes this villa unique

We love walking to Cabarete via the beach. Also, if you walk easterly from our villa there is a lovely little beach bar/restaurant that serves simple, delicious fresh fish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolute amazing time and we loved our stay at the house! Luis, Lile and Fransisco were so nice and made sure everything was clean and in order all day, every day. We are already talking about coming back down maybe next summer and staying at your villa again, of course. Andy was also very helpful setting us up with a few wonderful excursions. We really don't have any complaints about the house, everything was perfect and we had the time of our lives!

Thank you for all your help and hospitality!

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Harty! The staff was very friendly and went out of the way to help in anyway they could. I would recommend this property to anyone!

Great home...I would definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling solo, so rather than pay double the price at a hotel, I was able to rent this lovely home. It was awesome. The house is beautiful. It is older, but it is big, clean and well worth the money. The pool is beautiful and well kept. Luis is always working his behind off. He was great. The beach is nice, but I would use caution. There is a strong current...didn't bother me as I am use to this and I am a strong swimmer. If you use anddy for tours, I would caution you not to pay up front. Make sure the tour shows up before paying. Also, make sure you nail down times if you are supposed to meet with him. Really enjoyed my vacation and I hope to come back again with some friends.

Great Location Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Harty so much that we returned for a second visit within 2 years. The staff is amazing and the home is beautiful! This villa allows for the best of both worlds. I loved waking up to beautiful private grounds each morning, hearing the ocean surf in the background, and relaxing in the lanai with a cup of tea. We strolled out to the private beach or chose to head to nearby areas for more excitement. Cabarete is a short 7-10 minute ride by car and has food, shops,and entertainment. Cabarete caves are only 5 minutes away, and both Mama Iguana and Outback Safari will come to the house for excursion pick up/drop off.Sosua has a great beach ..snorkeling, food and vendors and is only 20 minutes away. Some days we relaxed at the villa enjoying the beach and pool, and other days we ventured out. The neighborhood is safe and the house is always attended by Lile, Louis, and Francisco. They attended to all of our needs. Lile did our breakfast dishes and will cook for you for a small extra fee. She even did our laundry while we were out and about. There is a small massage parlor on the corner where we each had a massage because the rates were so inexpensive. The owner only charged $20.00 for an hour. It's not fancy but it is clean and the massages were great! Shirley the owner is fantastic and will work with you to make sure that your needs are met. She works closely with Judy (the manager) and together they handle any issues that arise. Seriously, for the rates that are charged, you cannot find a better deal. Our young adult sons enjoyed this trip so much the first time that we all agreed we HAD to go back. Our second visit was as awesome as the first. We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Great location...far enough to relax and close enough to play!!

Great Vaction Property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Villa Harty. The weather was fabulous which made the pool and amenities very enjoyable. Each day we walked on the beach and enjoyed the beautiful view. The accommodations were great and very suitable for 8 adults. We had our own private maid and grounds keeper which were both very attentive and accommodating. We also used the chef for two days and enjoyed being pampered with delicious meals. We went to the village nightly for either meals or drinks and had a great time. There was a wide variety of places to choose from and live entertainment at some of the bars. We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend this location to others and hope to return to this piece of paradise in the future.

family fun in Cabarete

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Cabarete where we spent vacation with our kids and grandchildren. There were 6 adults and 2 children. The home was the perfect size for our group. We spent 5 of our 8 night vacation at this lovely villa. It was wonderful! The pictures can't truly capture the beauty of the property. The layout was wonderful, especially the very large covered patio that we practically lived on. All of the staff were great. We used the chef for several meals and were pleased with the service. The villa is very private, and yet still right on the beach. Just walk through the back gate down a short path through a lovely tree grove and right onto the beach. We enjoyed the location, but you do need to drive if you want to get to the neat little town of Cabarete (about 5 minutes by car). Can't wait to return. We are all talking about going back and spending more time there. I wish we would have had at least a week there. Two or three would be better still. I can't think of any complaint, except that if you're picky about your pillow, you might bring your own. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
