About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Tropical minimalism and refined use of materials define this 5 bedroom modern Caribbean villa. Set against the fluidity of a magnificent reflective infinity lap-pool and Japanese inspired outdoor living space. The simple and elegant use of marble, cedar and stone communicates harmoniously with the pool’s water reflection and surrounding exterior vegetation. Skylights push your eyes up to sky blue visuals while retractable glass doors erase architecture, replacing it with absolute connection to the natural setting.

Enter the enormous coral stone and brick driveway to the villa’s soaring foyer. Immediately the monumental volume of the living area encourages residents to absorb the magical exterior views. Living room features a surround sound system, 2 contemporary yet comfortable seating areas with sofa sleepers and a Chinese opium bed for daytime lounging or additional guests. Retractable doors open completely from the living room onto a pool patio with a Japanese inspired slate stonewall with fountain feature and rectangular lap pool.

Meals are enjoyed in the elegant dining room that closes for intimate get together. There is also an outdoor patio dining table for al fresco entertaining complete with iron candelabras and buffet nook. Hosts will appreciate a social kitchen with custom state of the art cabinetry that close automatically. An equally appointed staff kitchen with classic granite counters, Viking and General Electric stainless steel appliances. Shell fossil imbued coral floors are soft and cool on bare feet and are the preferred floors of stylish Dominican residences like Oscar de la Renta. Bathrooms are spa inspired with carrara marble vanities, showers with coral and teak accents and impeccably timeless white tiles.

Master bedroom features oversized walk in his and hers shower, vintage inspired bathtub and separate toilet and bidet quarter. All bedrooms are serenely furnished in hard wood sleigh beds or soft headboards with reading lights, ample dresser space, custom cedar closets, comfortable chairs, Persian and local rugs and fine Caribbean art. Villa Nirvana redefines modern Caribbean living with Palladium construction materials and the balance of Japanese inspired minimalism that touches the earth with lightness and magically dissolves the boundaries between interior and exterior allowing guests to immerse themselves in the perfection of Modern Caribbean Living.

Villa rentals include maid, gardener and groundskeeper. We have a great cook available upon request she makes lovely local dishes and buys fresh locally produced foods.

Seahorse Ranch is a 250 acre exclusive, gated prestigious development on the North Coast between Cabarate and Sosua. It is a fifteen minute drive from the International airport at Puerto Plata. Besides a lap pool at the villa there is a community pool available for your use in a park like setting overlooking the ocean. Sea Horse Ranch also has a tennis club (5 courts), an Equestrian center and an ocean front restaurant with gourmet cuisine.

Arrangements can be made to be picked up at the airport, which is 15 minutes away.

What makes this villa unique

As an ambassador of the DREAM Project, children's education program I decided to offer my home as a means to raise money for this worthy cause. As a renter 20% of all my rental income goes directly to this charity. The charity is registered as 501 US based non profit which means that 20% of your villa rental fee is tax deductible.

Best Place We've Stayed in Cabarete

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Cabarete several times to take our family surfing. We've often stayed in town at nice hotels but never found a place that was as high end as this community. We discovered the Sea Horse Ranch last year and really liked the property. We found Dean's villa through VRBO and thought it sounded perfect.

When we arrived we realized this villa was even more stunning than in the pictures. The home perfectly blends the inside with the beautiful outdoor areas with wide open doors which sprawl across the back of the home towards the pool. It seamlessly allows one to enjoy both areas of the home at once and leaves an airy feeling throughout the home. It is impeccably decorated with an international flare.

The TV room adds a cozy element and is equipped with everything you need for entertainment.

Each bedroom has AC, spacious bathrooms and with a perfect balance of simplicity and elegance. The master bath is worth highlighting as it is both grand and well appointed. Of particular note is the master shower featuring in size but has dual facing showers.

Dean is a gracious host and spent as much time as we needed to answer any questions about the area. He is super knowledgeable about Cabarete and helped arrange anything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. You can tell he really cares about his guest's experience while in his home.

The Sea Horse Ranch is a perfect place for families in Cabarete. In a gated community, and offers an equestrian club, tennis club, beach club and great restaurant. It is on the beach with natural tidal pools and lounge chairs which sit on the cliffs overlooking the water. It's about a 10 minute drive to downtown Cabarete and 5 minutes to Playa Encuentra for surfing. Our stay at this villa took our trip to another level. We are definitely coming back here and would rent this villa going forward.

most memorable Christmas ever

  • 5 of 5

First came in contact with this property through the development area but found the information and pricing to be much more responsive through the owner direct here. This was my families first experience being gone over the Xmas holiday. I was apprehensive and worked with the owner who arranged a decorated tree for our arrival. From beginning to end the planning, response time, and information was excellent. Dean really cares about his renters and that they have a great time. Up through our arrival everything was on spot. Dean worked with me to arrange a driver and cook for our trip. Everything went without issue.

Hire the cook, at least for a portion of your stay. We were there 10 days and found the food of higher quality and lower cost than when we ate out. Juana was responsive to our requests and portions and options. The kids loved her food and we had 3 awesome meals a day. We have rented houses and villas in lots of areas but never a cook. Its always a chore for us to keep everyone feed and the place cleaned up. Not this time. It was the most relaxing vacation of our lives. We had 9 adults in our group - our youngest is 17. We ate including the cost of the cook for about $25 per person per day. That's 3 meals a day shopped for, prepared and cleaned up for us for $25 per person per day. You can't beat that.

The housekeeper Jamiris was so awesome. She was always around changing sheets cleaning floors and doing an occasional load of our laundry. The area has lots of security even though we never felt we needed it.

Again Dean made sure we were happy all the time. On Xmas day the master bedroom air conditioning went out. He had people there working on it within an hour and when they couldn't fix it he had a new one brought in the next day and replaced it. Simply excellent customer service.

If you want privacy, peace and quiet, and plenty for the kids to do (pool, beaches, tennis, and horseback riding) this place can't be beat. If you really like to ride horses the ranch has wonderful options. We thought we would go once but we went twice and tried to go a third time. The horses were well behaved but you could work and run them at a pace comfortable for you. Very good experience.

We have traveled many places in the last 15 years but this is one of our must return to locations!! You won't be disappointed. The house is roomy with lots of amenities, the pool is wonderful and chlorine free. its an amazing place.

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful home for Spring Break. We had 3 families with 5 teenagers and never felt crowded. The home is more amazing than the pictures and plenty of space. The outdoor pool is heaven and a perfect place to relax and escape. There is a wonderful media room with TV and great wifi connection. The cook is out of this world and the beach club restaurant was great as well. We did many excursions including the zipline and monkey far, 27 Falls hike and catamaran snorkel cruise but were always thrilled to come home to this 5 star home.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this amazing property for 10 days. We had a fabulous experience; the owner was so helpful with restaurant and grocery store recommendations. He also led us to a car rental agency that served us very well. We would go back to the same property anytime. It was an extremely comfortable home with all the amenities one could ask for. The pictures on the web site were exactly as it looked in person. We think that anyone looking for a relaxing vacation would just love this home!!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week here at this beautiful villa. The homes pool was awesome but if that's not enough the community lagoons were worth the trip alone!

I'll be going back next year and would like to stay at this villa again. I did look at other villa while on my holiday, but I would choose this one again.
