SPECTACULAR RENTAL! WE MISS IT ALREADY. * * * * *

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Barranca 6. We came to Dominican Republic for our bi-annual friends’ trip. We had 10 people in the Villa throughout our stay and we never felt cramped or crowded. There was always a secluded place to sit or lounge. A couple friends did not have children and they were able to relax and have privacy when needed. The 2 separate bedrooms that were slightly removed from the main house (only steps away from the main door) were perfect for them. The out-door showers were a great addition to these private rooms. We often lounged by the HUGE pool as the kids were in it from sunrise to sunset. We also did the occasional tour that we scheduled ourselves. The large heated hot tub was just the right temperature for the weather in Casa de Campo in October. We cannot say enough about Maria, Cristina, and Jonathan. Our kids loved them and they loved our kids! They were AMAZING! While they did not speak much English, we were able to converse easily. The food was delicious and she gave multiple suggestions for our vegetarian guests as well as our meat eaters. We celebrated my birthday while I was there and Maria and Cristina made an awesome dinner and a delicious traditional flan! Cristina kept the house immaculate and laundry was done on a regular basis. Jonathan kept the grows beautiful and the pool free of any vegetation that may had fallen into the pool/hot tub.

Overall, this was one of the best and most relaxing vacations we have had in a while. The entire group were sad to leave the villa and its staff. My only suggestion to the owner/agency is to provide certain house items (Toilet paper, dish soap, tinfoil etc) and charge an additional fee (maybe $50) to avoid having the guests needing to pick these items up during their shopping trip. I know Maria felt embarrassed to ask for these items and it would probably be easier to charge a small fee upfront to have these items already supplied. However, this was something small that didn’t cause too much inconvenience, but just something to note.

Thank you Phillippe and Joseph (Agent) for the spectacular stay in Dominican Republic!

A delightful holiday retreat from the New England winter. Grandkids love the pool and hot tub. Maria, Christina, and Jonathan are both warm and professional. They meet all our needs and are so responsive. Physically the villa is very attractive and comfortable. Access to the marina, beach, tennis club is very easy with the golf carts. We are planning for the owners to hold the same week for next year, the best recommendation.

AMAZING * * * * *

We were a group of 3 couples and we had an amazing time at the house, everything was super clean, svc and food from Maria, cristina and jonathan was like no other. Marias food was like no other. The only issue we had was 2 houses down (PIT BULL HOUSE) They had parties everyday and music was super loud until 2-3am, we called security and nothing was done. Also the construction on the house next door started super early and didnt let us sleep. We will be going back next year. All the best.

A BEAUTIFUL VILLA * * * * *

A beautiful villa on the golf course! The house is incredibly spacious, immaculate and beautifully kept by the amazing Maria and her team. They made us feel so welcome and looked after us so well! We arrived after 2 weeks touring Costa Rica and Maria did our laundry – everything was ready within a few hours. Towels (bathroom and pool) were changed everyday. Jonathan helped us pick some avocados from the garden and once ripe we had them for lunch during the week. They were beautiful! For my father’s birthday Maria prepared a typical Dominican meal which was incredibly good. She is a fantastic cook! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool where we all spent a lot of time relaxing. We spent one day on Catalina Island (trip organised by the hotel) which we highly recommend. A lovely week gone too fast!

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY * * * * *

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Villa. We came as a group of six couples for my birthday and fit comfortably in this home. The staff was amazing. Maria made us feel welcomed and spoiled us with her cooking! She even prepared an authentic Dominican dinner for a birthday dinner that was amazing! Including a homemade Flan! We loved our stay! The only negative is the construction next door, which I’m sure will end soon! Thanks again for an excellent Dominican birthday party!
