About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

It’s just a short walk to the beach from this beautiful 5,000 square foot Villa, nestled on a private half-acre lot on a breezy hilltop in the center of Casa De Campo! The Villa has been custom designed for total comfort and relaxation! Please on click "links and videos" for a virtual tour. The walkway to the Villa embraces old world charm with its decorative Porte Cochere, grapevine trellis and bell tower leading to the hand cut stone main entrance. Walk through the door and escape the city by stepping out into a private tropical paradise.

Swim in the private pool, soak in the large heated Jacuzzi, or simply sit back on the terrace and enjoy the beautifully landscaped lush gardens! There are 6 chaise lounges, outdoor tables and chairs and twin sofas in the pool gazebo. Let our cook spoil you with breakfast and lunch prepared in our newly renovated, fully equipped gourmet kitchen. You will enjoy tropical breezes, fresh fruits and local fare served under the 2,000 square foot dining/living room gazebo which overlooks the pool and gardens.

THE MAIN LIVING AREA: The interior living room has high vaulted ceilings and has been newly decorated with very comfortable, over-sized furniture. You can enjoy music from both the interior and exterior sound systems and there is a new entertainment area with a 55" hi def flat panel television with blue ray DVD with wireless access to Netflix. There is also a computer with a flat panel display available for your use. Wifi is provided at no charge.

Note: While A/C is provided in each bedroom, the A/C in the main living area is available only as an option and not included in the listed rental price. With large fans, the great breezes and most activities being outdoors, the majority of guests don't find it necessary. There is a surcharge of $100/day for this option.

BEDROOMS: Enjoy the comfort of four well-appointed, air conditioned bedrooms, each with a private bath and flat panel TV. Bedrooms have access through the central courtyard and have direct access to the pool and gardens. The Master bedroom has a king bed with a private double-sink bath; Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and private bath; Bedroom 3 has a queen bed and private double-sink bath and a walk in closet; Bedroom 4 has two full beds, walk in closet and private bath. Luxury bed linens and towels are provided for your convenience.

Please note that while each bedroom is air conditioned, the A/C is available in the main living area as an option and not included in the rental price. With the large fans and breezes, and most activities enjoyed outdoors, the majority of guests don't find it necessary in the main part of the Villa. We do make it available for an additional $100 per day.

REGISTRATION: Our property manager will arrange for airport transfers and preregistration at the resort to make your arrival and check-in go quickly and smoothly. Included with your rental is a cook, maid & grounds person who will see to your needs and maintain the Villa, gardens, pool and Jacuzzi. Our Villa will amaze you with its cleanliness, amenities, staff and service!

THE STAFF: Our staff will prepare your breakfast and lunch daily with groceries you purchase. Each day after breakfast they clean and tidy up your room and bathroom before a late lunch is prepared, which is usually served between 1 -3 pm. You will be served cocktails by the pool and set up for dinner that you can heat up in the microwave or barbecue on our new gas grill.

GETTING AROUND: You will not need to rent a car to get around in Casa De Campo. When you arrive, after you check in at the main clubhouse, you can rent a golf cart to travel around in the resort. The golf cart is the quickest and easiest way to visit the marina, beach, clubhouse, and restaurants in the resort. Our villa is a short walk (less than ten minutes) to Punta Minitas Beach. There is a pedestrian/jogging path that connects the villa to the main clubhouse, golf courses, tennis pavilion and other amenities in Casa De Campo. Our neighborhood is very quiet and safe with only local traffic. Security is strictly enforced in the resort, and everyone entering must pass through a checkpoint for added security.

What Makes Our Villa Special: When you sit on the back patio it feels like you are in a private park. We have one of the largest lots in the Los Lagos community and our landscape designer (my wife Elizabeth) has landscaped the backyard beautifully. The main pool is large and fun for the kids and the Jacuzzi is heated by a high capacity gas-fired furnace, so the water is always the right temperature quickly. This is our family vacation home and we want it to be your home away from home when you are here!

Why Len Forkas (owner)/Linda DiValerio (Rental Manager) chose Casa de Campo

Casa de Campo is a secure, gated golf course community of 2,000 homes with more than 30 shops, 15 restaurants, a movie theater and many fun things to do both during the day and at night no matter what your interests are. We chose this particular Villa because of its convenient location on a quiet and private street, and it's one of the few Villas in the resort that is only a short walk to the private Punta Minitas beach. We especially liked the large and private lot that has been landscaped with many varieties of colorful, tropical plants.

What makes this house unique

We rebuilt the villa in 2009 and added a huge outdoor gazebo that has become our living and dining room. Our pool and jacuzzi are larger than most and very private. We are proud that our full time staff have been with us for several years. They are warm and wonderful people who always make everyone feel at home. The Villa is nicely decorated, clean, comfortable and well equipped.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Amazing 3-Family Dive Trip w/Stay @ Beautiful Los Lagos 72 Villa”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had 3 families (5 adults and 6 kids ages 8 - 14) in the DR for a week, and had a wonderful time using Los Lagos 72 in Casa De Campo as our base. Edie (cook), Mercedes (housekeeper) and Francisco (groundskeeper) were amazing; they were always there to help us out. Edie's breakfasts and lunches were delicious and very healthy with fresh fruits and vegetables and local Dominican Fare. We dove with John's team at Scuba Fun in Bayahibe, which is a top-notch dive outfit. We are not golfers, and did not stay in CDC for the golf, but using this as a base for our adventures was perfect. The villa is beautiful and only a very short walk to Playa Minitas. Everyone enjoyed the pool and hot tub at the house. The yard is large and gives the feeling that you are very secluded from the other things going on at CDC, but you are close to the beach, the Marina, the main hotel etc. Perfect for a group vacation!

A Fantastic house for spending time with family and friends

As a seasoned traveler that also rents homes I can tell you that this house meets all expectations. A great open feel, very clean, great staff and close to the beach and harbor. I will definitely rent again.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 72 Los Lagos was nothing short of spectacular. My family including the 3 grandchildren enjoyed every minute of our stay especially the pool, spa, and of course our daily trips to the beach. Although the beach was close by we made the trip in our golf carts.

The accommodations lived up to our expectations and was more than adequate for our family. Upon arrival our golf carts were waiting for us, our groceries were in the house, and we were met by the staff - Edie, Mercedes, and Ramon. It did not take us long to settle in and be comfortable in our surroundings. The staff was attentive to our needs throughout our stay.

We took advantage of the beach, The Marina, the hotel, the Dude Ranch, and beach activities. The pool and spa were inviting and all the extras - floats, mats, lounges, shade and sun were outstanding. Edie’s culinary efforts for breakfast and lunch were memorable as were the varied offerings each day. When requested Edie also was helpful getting us on our way for the few dinners we prepared at the house.

Rita from arrival to departure saw to it that all our needs were met including arranging for babysitters. I totally understand now why you refer to Rita as your “Angel”. Rita was always available and responsive to any issue and/or query. Although I went through a good deal of anxiousness at the start everything unfolded as you had indicated during the week prior to our arrival. The pickup at the airport, the golf carts, the arrival grocery list, and our departure was handled by Rita without incident. Edie coordinated all of our breakfasts, lunches, and the purchase of all that was needed and then some.

A wonderful week!!!!

Mother Daughter Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Perfect week! We felt like we were in Paradise! We could not have asked for a more beautiful home, pool, yard and surroundings! The house was perfect for 5 couples of mothers and daughters. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The home was decorated beautifully! I could have moved right in! It was comfortable. We especially loved the extra long white sofa! The pavilion in the back yard was our favorite spot. We would meet there in the morning for coffee then when everyone was awake our incredible staff Edy and Mercedes would serve us breakfast out there. Heaven. We did not want to leave! We would set our time for lunch each morning and they would serve us lunch out there too. The property manager, Rita, took care of our every need. She got us groceries for when we arrived. She booked a fabulous catamaran for the day called "No Worries" plus answered every question we ever had. I would highly recommend this home again and again. I want to take my husband back for sure and recommend it to anyone. I fell in love with Casa de Campo and the DR. Go!

In all of our travels, we have never felt so spoiled as we were at this meticulously appointed villa. Travel to and from the airport was seamless. Our accommodations were luxurious. The grounds were mesmerizing. But more than anything, I cannot speak highly enough about the service we received as guests in this beautiful home. Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking such good care of us and for the delicious, fantastically fresh and visually beautiful meals!! Ending the day on the loggia of one of the biggest, most gorgeous properties in Casa de Campo, 100% bug-free and with every conceivable indulgence is enough to make you never want to go home! Many thanks to the homeowners for your attention to detail and impeccable staff.

Fantastic place!

We just came back from and had an absolutely wonderful time. The accommodations were beautiful and the staff was very attentive. Food was excellent! I was concerned about the Zika virus but I did not see one mosquito the entire time while I was there. They do an excellent job keeping the insects away. We will definitely go back.
