"Where does one begin to describe Heaven? To describe Paradise ? To describe "VILLA DOROTHY"..?
I have attempted to stay here for three years, always booked and I have always felt I had to settle for second best. So this year I had the opportunity to either choose July or August at another location or wait until mid Sept and stay at my dream destination Villa Dorothy. HIP HIP HOORAY!!! I chose mid Sept, I just could not bare to wait another year. The moment you enter the Villa your breath is taken away, I must have said OMG at least one hundred times. This property was certainly never intended to rent as everything in it is extraordinary and unique, high end, yet so warm. You can feel the love that went into every inch of this breathtaking ocean front penthouse. I see vacation homes like this in the movies, well I must say we all felt like movie stars the entire time at Villa Dorothy. The views are beyond description in every direction, coffee at sunrise and champagne at sunset was our daily routine. As far as your eyes can see there is ocean, and if you look to the left the boardwalk with all its colors ablaze but far enough not to hear the noise. Every amenity is offered here, and the owner Steven MInichiello is himself an experience to relish and a joy to behold. Once you speak to him, you will love him, and he makes you feel as though you've known him forever, he treats you like his family. I was there an entire week and every day I saw something different in Villa Dorothy I hadn't noticed before. I hate when people write long winded reviews but I could not help myself, I could go on and on, but instead I will just say I have stayed at many places in my forty ?? years and this is by far the jewel of jewels. Thank you Steven, I realize the Penthouse is named for your Mom.
What an honor to stay here, What a son you must be, What a beautiful tribute to your mom, your love for her is evident at every turn ! Dame Victoria"
