Our unique beautiful beachfront villa has a large pool with a spacious outdoor terrace and an overlook tower with spectacular views of the ocean and our own private sandy beach. The house is a comfortably furnished older beach house. The villa's main floor has a large open living/dining/kitchen area. The covered terrace overlooks the pool and has ample seating and a large table for outdoor dining. There are two queen sized bedrooms on this floor, each with their own private bath. The separate lower living area has a king size bedroom with a private bath and a twin bedroom with it's own private bath. The house may not be suitable for very young children due to the fact that the lower level is only accessable from the outside, not from the upper level. All of the bedrooms have A/C. New features include an outdoor charcoal BBQ and an updated kitchen.
Price includes; full maid service, a caretaker/maintenance person, a security guard, all within a secure walled compound. A private chef is available for an additional $45 (US) a day, plus the cost of food. There is 24/7 electricity.
We had an absolute amazing time and we loved our stay at the house! Luis, Lile and Francisco were so nice and made sure everything was clean and in order all day, every day. We are already talking about coming back down maybe next summer and staying at your villa again, of course. Andy was also very helpful setting us up with a few wonderful excursions. We really don't have any complaints about the house, everything was perfect and we had the time of our lives!
Thank you for all your help and hospitality!
We loved Villa Harty so much that we returned for a second visit within 2 years. The staff is amazing and the home is beautiful! This villa allows for the best of both worlds. I loved waking up to beautiful private grounds each morning, hearing the ocean surf in the background, and relaxing in the lanai with a cup of tea. We strolled out to the private beach or chose to head to nearby areas for more excitement. Cabarete is a short 7-10 minute ride by car and has food, shops, and entertainment. Cabarete caves are only 5 minutes away, and both Mama Iguana and Outback Safari will come to the house for excursion pick up/drop off. Sosua has a great beach ..snorkeling, food and vendors and is only 20 minutes away. Some days we relaxed at the villa enjoying the beach and pool, and other days we ventured out. The neighborhood is safe and the house is always attended by Lile, Louis, and Francisco. They attended to all of our needs. Lile did our breakfast dishes and will cook for you for a small extra fee. She even did our laundry while we were out and about. There is a small massage parlor on the corner where we each had a massage because the rates were so inexpensive. The owner only charged $20.00 for an hour. It's not fancy but it is clean and the massages were great! Shirley the owner is fantastic and will work with you to make sure that your needs are met. She works closely with Judy (the manager) and together they handle any issues that arise. Seriously, for the rates that are charged, you cannot find a better deal. Our young adult sons enjoyed this trip so much the first time that we all agreed we HAD to go back. Our second visit was as awesome as the first. We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Great location...far enough to relax and close enough to play!!
I had the pleasure of staying at the Harty Villa this past February 2013. This four bedroom four and half bathroom villa seated next to the beach and just minutes fron the town of Cabarete offers everything you need for a wonderful quiet vacation. The staff at The Harty Villa was beyond fantastic as they met our every need. The property was well secured, clean and well kept, WOW! I do recommend that you make a stop at the grocery store, Janet Supermarket, prior to your arrival at the Villa. You can pick up all you desire for your stay at the villa. There are many of nearby restaurants and activities such as horseback riding, wind surfing, Daily trips to Whale watching and mountain hikes. Hats off to Eagle Villa' s Staff. I wish I was on my way back now! See Ya Real Soon.

My brother, our spouses, and 4 older teenaged sons recently spent a glorious week at Villa Harty. This vacation exceeded our expectations. The house is wonderful and the lanai became our living area. The lush vegetation and the pool which surround it, lend a tropical resort feel. The entrance to a gated walkway, which leads to the beach, is on the other side of the bridge. It is a QUICK walk. You cannot see the beach from the house but the beauty of the trees along with the privacy and shade they provide to the lanai make up for it. The 2 bedrooms downstairs are only accessible from outside. Great for us, as the boys felt as though they had their own area. Luis, the groundskeeper, helped us purchase ice and water. He took us to a local fish store and to the local grocery store.He understands some English and smiles continuously! Lile, the maid, sang as she cleaned up our breakfast dishes,did laundry, changed our sheets, and mopped the house on a daily basis. For a small additional fee, she cooked 2 dinners for us. She fried the fish and made wonderful sides to go with it. She also made her traditional meal of rice, beans and chicken. We insisted they join us for dinner! Francio, the private night security gaurd was also great. He helped the boys build a bonfire on the beach and hung out with them too! He was always there to open and close the locked front gate as we went in and out of the complex. We so enjoyed all of them, that by the end of the week it became hard to say goodbye. Even our boys were touched! Shirley the owner is great. We called her with ?'s and she was very helpful. Cabarete is a fun place to go at night. Be sure to access the beach front area where the restaurants have all kinds of wicker and pillowy furniture to lounge upon while you drink and dine. The boys loved the young crowd and party atmosphere. The drinking age is 18 and the rules are quite lax. One cautionary note, they were solicited by women and also for drugs on the streets of Cabarete at night. They were never hassled after saying "no" but I would not advise having anyone unattended on the streets at night. Playa Grande is a gorgeous beach..
.white sand, coral reefs, good for snorkling. 27 waterfalls is an excursion NOT to be missed! Our favorite! Ocean World would be nice for younger kids. It is pretty and clean, but do not expect the caliber of Sea World or Discovery Cove. If you rent a car, be prepared to drive aggressively and defensively. It's loco!
I was at the villa for 2 weeks with friends. I just loved it! it felt like home. The villa was soooooooooooo nice and confy! really private. Lili and Luis our caretakers were so nice I miss them already! After my 2 weeks we stayed in a resort in Puerto plata for 2 days. We had fun but nothing like the villa, I wanted to go back. Now I have to wait 10 months before go back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see our new friends we made. Lili, Luis, Judy and Domingo.
