THE HOUSE -
A wonderful house in a great location. Well furnished & decorated. We loved the pool, the large kitchen and the rest of the amenities. The neighborhood was great and a nice pleasant walk to the beach. The patio was the perfect spot to read a book or watch the hummingbirds. Easy walk to the main road to get a taxi to reach any town or place. We never felt like we needed a car. The housekeeper was great and did a wonderful job and was super sweet. Helped us out a lot. Loved the master bath!
The beaches were wonderful and you did not have to go far to find your own stretch of solitude. If you walk west you will find really nice beaches where there are very few people. Most of this stretch of beach will at times have waves, sometimes gentle and sometimes not as much. We found most of the time you could go swimming and it wasn't so rough. Just look out for the rocks. Nice surfing as well.
If you walk East there is more people but also really nice stretches of beaches and you will see kite surfers in the distance.
THIS TO DO -
We really enjoyed the neighbor towns of Cabarete and Sosua. You can easily find places to eat and excursions to go on. We did the Iguana Mama 27 Waterfalls Tour and really recommend it for something fun to do that is unique. They pick you up from the main road and the price includes the round trip plus a really nice lunch.
Shopping is also easy to get to. There are a few nice grocery stores just a few minuets away.
We also really recommend the Natura Cabana just down the road for their spa and restaurants. Just a 5min walk from the house.
This is not too touristy of an area. The nice new airport is 10min away and about $35 each way for a nice taxi. More peaceful then the Punta Cana area.
- This really wasn't the fault of the house but there were a few moments of confusion due to my lack of decent Spanish with the staff and management company.
- The wifi did not work while we were there. We alerted the caretaker of this but it never got fixed. Maria was kind enough to refund some of our money due to this issue.
- Didn't know the house was on the corner of a semi busy road. Just know that on one side there is vehical and foot traffic during the day. The fence does not block this out & reduced privacy a bit. Not a big deal.
- Bring bug spray. Lots of mosquitos.
Overall this was the vacation we needed and we would go back. Maria was great to work with and a wonderful host.
Villa Maria was a beautiful home very close to the beach and centrally located between Sosoua and Cabarete. The staff was wonderful- I felt very pampered. It was nice to be so close to the beach. I would definately recommend this villa to others.
It was my first time in the DR and the overall experience was FANTASTIC!! The house is very comfortable for a family and offers all the necessary ammenities you may need during your vacation away from home. The bedroms are specious, with a full barthroom and one of the best fitures of the house is the BIG kitchem....our place to gather and to enjoy a great meal and family time. We did sped many hours outdoors in the porch and the in the nice pool as well as great walks at the beach that is only a block away right behind the home. Very important for me and my family is the safety of the place and this house is located in a gated community with 24 hours security. We rented a car to drive arounf the and to visit the different small towns close to the house and our favorite was Cabarete were you can enjoy the beach, the different restaurants, bars, sports and people from many different countries.
Next time I have the opportunity to come back to the DR (Puerto Plata area) I would definitly come back to Perla Marina - Villa 12......Highly recommended.
Let me just say that this place was great. From the house to the location, the beach, right on down to the owner, Maria. Anytime we had any questions or concerns, Maria was always available & prepared to make our vacation experience a great one. I hate to say too much great things about this house because I'm afraid it won't be available for the time I may desire it. I will tell you that you won't be disappointed staying here. Be sure & try the Natura Cabana for breakfast by the beach that's in walking distance. Beautiful house, The property is very well furnished, beddings are comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with the right utensils and cookware.
