My wife and I live in Connecticut. We travel to the Dominican Republic 3-4 times a year and rent the house when we are not there.
Alan Miller purchased this villa in 2009
My wife and I built the Villa in Cofresi after we vacationed there with our adult children and grandchildren. We really like the Dominican people are very nice, the country is still very underdeveloped. It's easy to get to with lots of flights from the US and Europe. This is an perfect spot for families looking for an affordable Carribean getaway.
Our family had a perfect vacation at Casi Cielo and I would definitely recommend this property. We were there from July 25th through August 6th and did not want to return home! The location of the property is convenient to the beach, convenience stores, and Ocean World. All were within walking distance so we had no need to rent a vehicle.
The owner was very prompt to answer questions and provided excellent information to assure that our vacation was nothing short of perfect. The property and views were more beautiful than the photos. The housekeepers (Lena and Francesca) were there for our every need. Their service was unbeatable and their cooking was loved by everyone in our family! It was definitely relaxing to have all of the household chores, cooking, and laundry done! This is the first vacation that I (the mom) got to relax!
Ellio, the grounds keeper was excellent and ran errands for us. He also went out of his way to give our daughters (ages 6,11,and 11) an education on the tropical coconut trees. This was a very good time!
Another person (Gus) came to the property and took care of the planning for all of our excursions. This was great as we did not have to leave the villa or disrupt the children playing in the pool. I even managed to get a pedicure while sitting on the beautiful veranda and enjoying the view.
We went out on the catamaran excursion and loved it! The views were amazing and the staff was great! The snorkeling was great and the children really enjoyed the outing.
We also went to Ocean World and swam with the dolphins. This was by far a wonderful experience for the entire family and a must do for all ages! They even have a DVD you may purchase to remember your trip.
We will definitely return to the Dominican Republic and stay at Casi Cielo! Thanks to everyone for giving our family the perfect vacation!
The villa is beautiful! And the maids were great. Also Alan was very helpful in coordinating our trip from the time I contacted him until we headed home! Will definitely be returning soon
Nine of us (two families) had a wonderful week here in February. The villa is beautiful and well maintained. The pool and environs are gorgeous. The villa's proximity to activities (we recommend Ocean World and the day trip to the 27 waterfalls) is perfect. The best part about this home, though, is the staff, who make you feel welcome from minute one. In addition, we were indebted to the owner who helped us rearrange our ground transportation when our original flight from the states was cancelled (snow storm!).
The person who came to the house to arrange our outings was honest and helpful. Ask him to help you get cigars if you'd like. Also, we had manicures, hair wraps, and massages all right at the house!
One bit of advice: just stay in and enjoy Lena's amazing cooking. (We ate out one night and that was when two of us got sick.) There is no reason to eat out! Our best meals were at the villa. Even the MOMS got to relax at Casi Cielo! Thank you for a wonderful time.
As our first time picking a "villa" over a hotel for our family vacation, we couldn't have picked a better place than here at Villa Ciello...My family and I can't stop talking about the awesome time we had from the time we stepped off of the plane, till the time we all left. The entire staff was stellar beyond words and Rosa, and Lina were amazing! Not only did they provide us with great meals daily, they kept the house spotless at all times. We appreciate the security and we always felt safe. Though we were very close to the beach and the casino, which we did venture out to, the comforts of the house were so overwhelming, it was hard to leave. Overall Ciello was everything we imagined and more, and the private tour throughout the country was a complete wow factor. Honestly, we are now very spoiled due to how the staff treated us, and we may never go back to a hotel again for family vacations. With that being said, we look forward to coming back, and experiencing DR again.
The only drawback would be a stronger wifi/internet system. It worked but was very intermittent.
Other than this...everything else was awesome!
Again, thank you for making our first villa experience a great one!
My girl friends and I recently stayed in this Villa and I must say it far exceeded my expectations. The house was BEAUTIFUL (and spotless)! The staff was friendly and made sure all of our needs/wants were met...all we had to do was relax and enjoy our stay. I will definitely book this Villa again
We recently returned from a wonderful week at Casi Cielo. The villa is beautiful and spacious with a great floor plan and amenities. There were seven of us in our group staying at the villa. The layout and the generous space—with first and second floor balcony areas as well as private balconies with four of the bedrooms--provide the opportunity for gathering together but also offer quiet spaces to curl up and relax, read or spend time apart. There are views of the water from all rooms, balconies and the pool deck. The villa’s staff was gracious and friendly. They prepared meals, maintained the house and did the laundry with a quiet and helpful presence. Meals, from breakfast through dinner, were delicious, and we were able to make food choices that accommodated everyone in our group. Having the option to have meals prepared and waking each day to a great breakfast is a perfect vacation treat. We would have breakfast and then head out on our various choices of adventures for the day.
Ocean World is an easy walk from the villa and some of us enjoyed an amazing experience swimming with the dolphins there. Our group had fun going to the Bravissimo show and the casino at Ocean World. There are many options for tours and activities, of which we took advantage, but we had some of our most enjoyable times relaxing at the villa, swimming, having dinner in, playing cards and games and simply basking in calling the villa “home” for a week.
The information and notes provided by the villa’s owners were invaluable. We were able to be prepared, plan and make choices. Going in August during off-season turned out to have some great advantages. We were able to schedule and experience activities without fighting crowds. The heat of the summer was not a problem because there was always a breeze. The weather was beautiful. We had only a couple of brief showers and nothing that interrupted a day’s plans.
We had a special time with friends in a beautiful home where the owners have thought of every detail to make the time spent in their villa perfectly enjoyable and relaxing.
