About William Holden

I was an airline captain for 37 years and spent many years flying around the Caribbean. I fell in love with the Dominican Republic because of the warm and gracious culture, great all-year-round good weather and wide variety of things to do. I also like the fact that I could get there with non-stop service and wide-body aircraft and did not have to take a bunch of 'Puddle-Jumpers' to get to my final destination. There are over 300 miles of pristine beaches, great golf courses, and offers incredible boating experiences. It is also a great experience for the rest of the family. There are many local cultural events, a chance to meet people from all over the world, and world-class sporting events. We also love the equestrian lifestyle in the Dominican Republic.

William Holden purchased this villa in 2010

Why William Holden chose Samana

We chose this property because of it's proximity to so many things to do. And, it is completely private and secure. Quite frankly, we got tired of the hotel and condominium lifestyle and found we loved the private villa lifestyle so much more. However, we still have access to all the hotel and condominium amenities. If we want, we can lounge around in our own private swimming pool or lush gardens... or we can go to any of the multiple swimming pools around the community. Even still, we can take go on an excursion or take a boat ride to a private island with great sandy beaches.

What makes this villa unique

Puerto Bahia is unique because it has everything. We especially like mountain lifestyle feeling with the spectacular ocean views. And, it's only a short walk to everything. We also have lots of other places, like Las Terrenas and Las Galeras that are only a short car ride away. We are also only a couple of hours away from the capital city of Santo Domingo if we want to do some major shopping or attend some cultural events.

There is also a guest services manager available at the Holden Sotheby's realty office locates in the Hotel Bannister reception area.
