Overview

Casa De Campo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Located centrally in Los Lagos within Casa de Campo, our family's villa comfortably sleeps eight people with four bedrooms and four full bathrooms, a swimming pool and staff quarters. The villa has an open style architecture with several indoor and outdoor seating areas, as well as indoor and outdoor dining areas.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and en suite bathroom with double sinks & bidet. Spacious bedrooms #2 and #3 have two double beds each with en suite bathrooms, and bidets. Cozy bedroom #4 has two double beds which can be adjoined, a private bathroom, and it opens to an enclosed private patio. All bedrooms have air-conditioning with individual remote controls, ceiling fans, as well as cable television.

About 5 minutes walking distance from the ocean, Los Lagos #100 is located on the first street parallel to the resort's private beach. Centrally located, one can easily get around by golf cart.

The staff is the heart of our home and Romy, the head person and cook, has been with our family for over 20 years. She is assisted by two other staff, to help make your stay a relaxing and enjoyable one. Spanish is their first language, but they understand and speak some English as well as Italian and French. Most importantly, they are eager to please you so it is important to communicate your wishes to them.

Our staff provides daily maid service, grounds keeping and pool maintenance, as well as meal preparation and service from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Additional hours can be easily arranged for a nominal charge.

Although groceries are not included, Romy is quite competent to shop for you if you provide a list and money (she will give you the receipts) and/or accompany you to market, if you so desire.

We and most guests enjoy Romy's creative menus and we encourage you to experience them. This being said, she is also extremely happy to take direction for any specific meal preparation or requests you may have.

Casa de Campo is considered by many as the Caribbean's most complete resort. 7,000 acres contain four Pete Dye golf courses; tennis courts; polo club and equestrian center; world class shooting center; water sports, beaches and boat excursions; fitness center and spa; and a vibrant Marina with cinemas, restaurants and shops. Altos de Chavon is a replica of a 16th century Mediterranean village in the resort providing a cultural and artistic hub, an Amphitheater for live shows, as well as more restaurants, bars, shops and night clubs. The main area of the hotel has been recently renovated providing more restaurants, shops & activities (see the resort's website for more details).

The resort is a gated community and an admittance and usage fee is required for guests residing in private villas (versus resort operated) upon arrival. The fee is $20 per day per adult and $10 per day per child over 10 years of age payable directly to the resort. Identification cards are issued upon registration to guests allowing access all of the resort's facilities.

About Olga Valdes Skidmore

My husband and I are both from the Dominican Republic and have resided in the United States since 1957, living in Maryland since 1963. As a matter of fact, I spent much of my youth in La Romana as my father was the physician for what is today the Central Romana Sugar Corporation - today's owner of Casa de Campo.

In the mid-1970's while vacationing with our girls in La Romana we learned of the vision for Casa de Campo (translation: Country House) and decided to purchase lots. We eventually built the the villa in Los Lagos and have remained there through the many changes the resort and town has experienced. We chose the spot because of its central location and have remained there because of it. I suppose after all these years our only regret was not buying oceanfront property at the time!

Olga Valdes Skidmore purchased this villa in 1985

Why Olga Valdes Skidmore chose Casa De Campo

We chose this property because of all of the activities offered within a secure community, where our children were safe and free to move unsupervised. This gated community has an impressive high level of security for its residents and guests and there is no public access and no through traffic.

All said, the dependable weather, the wonderful international crowd, and sheer beauty of the land and its people made it an easy decision for us.

What makes this villa unique

We've always been blessed by being surrounded by good people - and, today, I would say that the care and attention from our staff makes a visit to our villa a very special experience. It is said that the most wonderful aspect of our island is its people - they teach us that if you 'go with the flow' that everything is possible.

The Best

  • 5 of 5
My spouse and I [and several other retired couples] recently spent a fabulous week at 100 Los Lagos. First of all, the villa owner is extremely cooperative, efficient and helpful [she even arranged for our transportation to and from the villa and the airport]. The booking process was a stress free breeze. The villa itself is roomy, comfortable and well furnished in every respect with an open air feeling. The bedrooms are great, each with en suite bath with a fun garden view. The outdoor patio area and pool are absolutely resort-like....there were times when we simply lounged around the pool sipping cocktails for the entire afternoon, pretending we were royalty and not wanting to go anywhere else. The location of the villa in Los Lagos is super convenient with a short walk - or even shorter golf cart ride- to Minitas Beach and a fairly central location for everything else like the Marina, Altos de Chavon and the main hotel area. Last but surely not least is the maid staff, Romy and Sophie, who calmly and quietly took care of everything from making delicious tropical breakfasts, to keeping the place tidy, to doing our laundry [all without ever being asked, always with a contagious smile]. I know from experience that there are many villas to choose from within Casa de Campo, but 100 Los Lagos is absolutetly THE BEST.

For the past five years , my husband and I have been staying at this gorgeous villa .It is located within walking distance [or using the golf cart] to the beach . The grounds are landscaped with beautiful indigenous plants , the breeze blows through the house all day and night with big, quiet ceiling fans and a gorgeous pool awaits you in the center of the private court yard !Truly it is the most relaxing space . I have been to other resort places but this villa is unique because of Romy, the cook and the other members of the staff. Romy is a genius in the kitchen and has the most beautiful smile and demeanor you have ever seen.The bedrooms are spacious with linens changed daily.Nearby restaurants are good but Romy's food is so delicious you will never want to leave...it truly is Paradise on Earth and I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to totally relax, enjoy the sea breeze, be surrounded by beauty and quietness and give yourself a wonderful treat!!Wish I were there right now !!

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Vacationing at this special villa has become a yearly tradition with my group of college fraternity brothers and their wives. After our first visit, we were "hooked" and have since visited four times. Never disappointed, every year gets better and better!

Over the years we have explored the many beautiful sites the area affords, as well as eaten in many of the local restaurants, but our favorite times have been hanging out at the villa and enjoying Romy's amazing culinary skills and the staff's hospitality. The experience really rates as one of my favorite memories.

If you feel you deserve a bit of Paradise here on earth, look no further!

As for me, I'm looking forward to MARCH!!!

Great week!

  • 5 of 5
This was the best vacation we've been on in a long time, maybe ever. From the first communication with Olga until we left the villa everything was top notch, there is nothing that could have been better. Our group included 4 adults and two children (2 & 4) and everyone had a great time. The villa is awesome and the staff is even better. The villa's location was great, a quick ride to the beach and not too far to the marina or altos de chavon. I'd highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a 5 star vacation.

Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family just returned from a wonderful trip to Casa de Campo and this beautiful villa. Enjoyed Casa de Campo, and loved the villa. Close to the beach in a great location, it couldn't have been better. Bedrooms all air conditioned, with the rest of the house open as it should be in the caribbean. The staff was great. Romy is an excellent cook and will do whatever you need. Breakfast and lunch were events. We thought we would eat lunch out most days, but never did. It was perfect coming back to the house after beach, golf or fishing and enjoying a relaxing lunch. Romy's daughter was delightful and very helpful, and Domingo took great care of the house and was always there to help with whatever we needed. You do need to have some spanish skills with them, though, but Google translator is a good start! Wireless worked great. Owner was great, with lots of good suggestions. We played golf (Teeth of the Dog was in EXCELLENT condition, and villa renters get a discount), tennis, fishing, beach, and even went to a concert at Altos de Chavon. We'd return without question and recommend to all. Thanks so much!!
