As you may have read earlier - the pictures do NOT do the Eagle Villa justice. The views, the expanse of the house itself, the pool (how nice to have right there)! We were so impressed by the Villa, upon first sight! Upon entering, you have so much living space (room for 8-10 people is no problem). The wrap-around balcony overlooking the ocean can protect you from any rain that might fall; or let you see all the stars at night (or just head to the rooftop viewing deck for ultimate views)!!! Downtown Puerto Plata is just a ten-minutes drive, and the towns of Sosua (beaches, shopping and nightlife) and a bit further Cabarete are not to be missed.
Privacy is apparent as we were on top of the mountain, yet town was just a short drive down the hill. Our houseman, Rafael (mi Hermano!) and our "Chef" Ana (Mi Corazon!) were what made the entire week so special for us. They were there for us from morning till evening, they cooked and waited on us like King and Queen (we had to make them sit down with us for meals as we all became "la Familia" after only a day or two)!!! Not to forget our protector, Ramon, who stayed through the night to watch over us and the property. Never was there a problem and we felt very safe and comfortable. Muchas Gracias, Ramon!
They all went above and beyond, even accompanying us into Puerto Plata (va al Supermercado!) to shop for food and beverages to bring back to the house; and even found us a few good deals in the jewelry shops! We cannot say enough about these two - they are truly warm, friendly (hard-working), very kind people and we already miss them. We would like to also thank the owner, Daniel for stopping by personally to check in on us (that morning Cigar ...and Rum!! we shared on the balcony was right on)! Daniel was attentive to our every need and was there if we had any questions or concerns.
The only question we have now is: ...how soon can we come back for another stay? Next time, we bring more family/ friends so we can show-off how lucky we were during our first trip!
Muchas Gracias para todo, y Muchas Gracias Ana Y Rafael para una semana maginifco!!!! (XOXOXOXO)
Ralph and Cynthia!
