Overview

Playa Cofresi Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, sleeps 14

This lovely beach house, surrounded by over 1/2 acre of private tropical gardens, overlooks the gentle surf of Playa Cofresi on the North Shore of the Dominican Republic. Villa Del Caribe is the only private beach-front villa in Playa Cofresi and has wonderful large verandas on two floors which are ideal for parties or simply relaxing with a good book and some rum. You will enjoy our large private swimming pool and thatch-roof cabana in the back yard as well as our smaller sitting pool for non-swimmers or those who prefer to lounge in the water (often with a drink!). Of course, our staff will cook, clean (and do laundry), and take care of Villa del Caribe, so you do not have to worry about . . . anything!

Playa Cofresi plays host to many international visitors. This area offers a wonderful place to relax among a mix of friendly Dominican citizens as well as North American and European tourists and ex-patriots. There are also great restaurants within walking distance.

Our Private Tropical Gardens: Villa Del Caribe is surrounded by over 1/2 acre of private tropical gardens. Take a peaceful stroll around the pool and enjoy the colorful bougainvillea, orchids and other colorful flowers and ferns. In the front of the house, you can relax in the shade of coconut palm, almond and mango trees, or walk over to enjoy the sun-drenched 'Island Garden' in the front of the property.

More About Playa Cofresi: Playa Cofresi is a wonderful place for those who want a relaxing Dominican experience, but aren't interested in (or are tired of) the all-inclusive scene. Just walk along the beach, and you'll see and meet a wide range of people, all of whom are enjoying simply being at Cofresi. Tourists from the US and Europe mingle easily with Dominicans. On the beach, language is not a barrier -- a simple 'Hola!' and a smile are all that is needed.

There is also a thriving (and often quirky) community of expats who have washed up on the shores of Cofresi. Most of them have come from the US, Canada, Germany and the UK. Just pull up a seat at Chris & Mady's bar, or the bar at the Beach House restaurant and strike up a conversation. Everyone has a story that they are happy to share over a Margarita or a Rum & Coke. In no time at all, it will be easy to think that you're in the middle of a Jimmy Buffet song!

Beach Reading 'Library': We've stocked our home with a large number of books that are great for reading on the beach or by the pool. And we've also included a lot of books for the kids, too -- from bedtime stories for the little ones to books that the teens will enjoy. Take a good look around when you are there -- we've tucked them into various corners, shelves and niches. You should be able to find something interesting.

And speaking of interesting: Don't worry about being half-way through a great story when it is time to leave. If the book is too good to put down, please feel free to take it with you and read on way home. And if you've brought a book with you that you've finished, you can leave it at the house for another guest to enjoy.

Playa Cofresi
Car: not necessary

Cofresi Beach, named after a famous pirate, is about 4.5 km west of Puerto Plata. The coral sand at the beach is cool on the feet and soft to the touch. On one end of the mile long beach are rocks and coral that invite snorkelers. There are usually breakers for body surfing in some areas but the rest is just right for wading. There are no rip tides, no dangerous under tows and no jelly fish at Cofresi. Quaint Dominican souvenir kiosks and nice restaurants are set along the beach area but you will not be hassled by hawkers on the beach itself. After the sun goes down, the nightlife picks up, with musical shows, discos and a casino all just a short walk away.
