festive home vacation experience
We had a relaxing, festive and memorable vacation at this Dominican style villa, which had plenty of space and bedrooms for our group of eight. The villa is in a good location, a short golf cart ride from the beach, restaurants, club and resort area and activities. The owner, Patrick, warmly welcomed us upon our arrival, along with his cook, Nelly, and housekeeper, who all made us feel very much at home during our stay. As we walked into the villa, there was a lighted Christmas tree and music playing on a Bose sound system. The home also has a nice outdoor light system, pool and local Dominican home furnishings. Patrick was very responsive to any of our needs, both before, during – and after - our stay. Prior to our arrival, he arranged for 2 days of groceries and meals, as well as pickup from the airport with two vans. He provided a chef, Nelly, housekeeper and driver Santana, and two golf carts, so we were able to start enjoying our vacation as soon as we walked out of the airport. Nelly cooked delicious meals, helped shop with us for groceries and is very personable. It was great having a cook in the house. It not only saved much money and time eating at restaurants, but it made the whole home vacation experience all the more relaxing and festive. The housekeeper cleaned and provided fresh towels daily. The resort and club area is more exclusive, private and superior to any all-inclusive resort. We loved the beach area by Lo Choza restaurant, and hiked the nature reserve and swam in the fresh water lagoon. We also did a Segway tour, rode horses, kayaked and attended a special New Year's Eve party at the club and resort. We loved our time at Patrick's house and the PuntaCana club and resort. I must say that Patrick’s exceptional service did not end when we left. When we returned home, we discovered that a ring was missing. I contacted Patrick to ask him to look for it at the villa. He subsequently found the ring in a safety box we had used, and, as of this writing, arrangements are in process for its return. I recommend this villa for your vacation.
