Why Cliff York chose Playa Cofresi

Coming here is an adventure, yet at the same time, it's simple and easy living. My family came here for a vacation, and went home owning a villa. Nearly 30 years later, we have no regrets!

We offer total privacy as our property is set back from the road.

Our friendly staff are happy to serve you. Your rooms will be made up daily, we'll provide your cooking and cleaning so you can relax and enjoy. There are so many adventures awaiting you.

What makes this villa unique

When we purchased our villa there were very few homes in Playa Cofresi. This one stood out as it was designed in a modern fashion with glass windows and a flat roof. There is pine trim on the inside and other unique treatments we hadn't seen until then. The man that built the villa was Dominician/American, and owned a construction company in New Jersey. He built his dream home with knowledge and skills utilizing both cultures from which he came. His final larbor came from love as he solidly built his dream home with exactness to detail.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 4 of 5
We recently stayed in Villa Blanca and had a wonderful stay. The owner was very flexable and laid back with our stay which made the trip less stressful for planning. The villa's help was amazing. The maid was so sweet and cooked delicious and even did our laundry!! The villa was clean and felt very much like a warm cottage home. The beds were all very comfortable as well which is so important! I would definetly stay here again and recommend to friends and family.

Family Vacation and a bit of work

  • 5 of 5
I cannot express in a simple email how great this stay was. I flew my family in to meet me in a place I had to do a few days of work and from the beginning everything was great. The staff are the best. They bent over backwards to accommodate anything we needed. Cannot say thank you enough for a much needed vacation. Anyone looking for a beautiful house and perfect care-taking staff - please do not hesitate to pick this place. Thanks, guys!

Cofresi Villa

  • 5 of 5
Just finished a week at this Casa Blanca. Very nice experience! Maribela, the cook/housekeeper is an incredible worker. We were all very impressed by her. Sandy, the groundskeeper was also always willing to help out. Pedro, the security guard (at night) always greeted us with a smile and was always alert . The villa is large and sleeps 8 very comfortably. Cliff, the owner, responded quickly to any questions we had.

The only caution would be to have a little bit of knowledge of Spanish. This will make the whole experience a smooth one, as it was with us.

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
"The house is spacious, the grounds well kept and the pool is very nice, but too cold for swimming in January. Maribelle, (the cook), who speaks no english, and Sandy, (groundskeeper) who speaks limited broken english did a great job keeping the place up and accommodating our needs. I suggest you have Maribelle cook Dominican meals she is familiar with; those meals were good, but she was not familiar with American cooking, ingredients, or procedure. The house has a beautiful view of the ocean from the top balcony and is only a few minutes walk to the beach. Many important details not divulged, caught us off guard with regard to added expenses, essentially undermining our budgets. Our party of eight people rented the Villa for 4 days and then the remainer 4 for an additional 6 days and in short order found ourselves out of cash. We had planned to use credit cards for expenses, but found only two local places that accepted cards, one of which charged additional local fees above and beyond the cost of goods and taxes (about ten percent). Since communications where limited we had to travel to get groceries at a cost of $45 per cab ride, at a distance half that to the airport but for the same price. We had 2 trips to grocery store because of the length of stay. The price of groceries is comparable to that of the states. Gus came to the house to book our excursions, but that too had to be paid in cash. We took the jeep tour which included the falls - it was a great experience and we also booked Paradise Island which was awesome. Four restaurants within walking distance all had good food, but only Chris and Maddies accepted cards -(excellent food and drinks, be sure and try their margarita it was the best!). Come to find out after reading the outdated binder that was on hand, we found that besides paying the staff, we were also expected to provide meals for the staff, including dinner for Jose (the night security guard). We were also expected to pay for the bottled water which I think should have been included in the cost of the rental."

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate your review and wish to improve our operation from your experiences.

ATM machines are conveniently located throughout Puerto Plata, and the exchange rates are favorable. Unfortunately, no one in a party of eight had an ATM card. We were able to arrange a cash loan for our guest. Few businesses in the DR accept credit cards as the Peso fluctuates against other currencies.

It is a Dominican custom for the master of the house, in this case, the villa guest, to share their food with their domestic staff. When planning meals the staff should be taken into consideration.

Language can be a problem at times as the Dominican Republic is a Spanish speaking country. It can be challenging as well as fun to communicate with the people. They are loving, outgoing, charming and resourceful people. As foreigners, our guest should understand they are not in their country and must understand and respect the customs and traditions of the Dominican people.

Luxurious Villa in a secluded Island Garden of Eden

  • 5 of 5
I had the distinct pleasure to stay at the Playa Confresi with a group of friends during the week of 13th thru the 20th in the month of November 2010. The Villa sits uniquely in a secluded hillside overlooking the bay and all the way thru to the ocean. My friends and I loved sitting by the Villa's large pool, while the house cook Maryvase would serve breafast, lunch , and dinner! Maryvase prepared everything to order and to our specifications! Maryvase was very eager to serve our every food need during our stay at Playa Confresi! She even took us to the local market in Puerto Plata to help us pick out just the right ingredients and meals we wanted while staying at Playa Confresi! The Villa manager Gabino Binet was always available to us for booking excursions into the local mountains, and all trips being picked up right from the Villa by your very own driver! For the adventure seekers I recommend the trip to the waterfalls and the tour to the mountain villages. The waterfalls was truely one of my favorite excursions. Mr. Binet also organized for us trips with our own private driver and tour giude to the local beaches, shopping in Puerto Plata's local art galleries, to dinners at local beach side restaurants. Mr. Binet and his staff never skipped a beat on making sure our trip was everything we wanted it to be. On our first morning at the Villa, Mr. Binet had scheduled the availability of a masseur for us. The masseur was such a wonderful surprise and just what the doctor ordered! Of course the Massage wasn't free, but once the fatigue had vanished and the masage was completed, we all felt stress free and relaxed just ready to take on all the Dominican Republic had to offer!! If you plan a stay at Playa Confresi you will not be disappointed, but rather relaxed without ever lifting a single finger! Everything is just done for you by the Villa's wonderful house staff from the time you wake up till the time you turn in for the evening! I would go back to this true Garden of Eden in a heartbeat!!
