Our son and our grandson enjoying a romp in the pool Christmas 2012 in Casa. Midwesterners' by birth, now living in the East (daughter just moved from Chicago to NY for Grad school); searched for years to find the perfect place and succeeded. Reliably great weather (even at Christmas), great golf, tennis, boating, trap-shooting,dining etc. and best of all wonderfully nice people. Happy and always helpful, we've found Dominicans' to be the nicest people in the entire Caribbean.
I continue to run my own business and find it quite easy to operate from the D.R. with phone and Free Wireless Internet access Through out the Villa. JFK to SDQ is 3+hours and the drive from SDQ to the Villa is about what it takes us to get to JFK from the North Shore of Long Island. Now only :45 minutes from Punta Cana airport on the new Coral Highway
Both of our children long out of school (save our daughter) now regularly bring other couples down every year when we're not all vacationing together or we aren't filled up with our friends.
The setting and the staff as well as the amenities make LL 106 perfect for relaxed entertaining and just plain good fun hanging out together. The place is 'not to be missed'
The Owner purchased this villa in 1997
As noted above, perfect and reliable weather, great golf and other facilities in the resort (including, tennis, scuba, Casa for Kids, horseback riding and much more). Quite easy to reach from New York & Chicago, incredibly nice Dominican people and my family loved it at first sight.
We have been coming to Casa and this Villa for 16 years every Christmas holiday as well as other times of the year. Our kids have grown up here and made numerous friends (as have we -- interestingly more non-American's than Americans). The kids and grand child all view this place as home, more than our regular residence in NY
I start each day at 7:00 with a short walk to the beach for a swim, typically no one else is there and the water is flat with an off-shore breeze. A drop in the Jacuzzi with coffee follows and the day is then 'planned' with the family. The big question is do we stay in or go out for dinner -- both equally good choices.
Los Lagos 106's central location makes access to golf, the marina, the beach or the hotel very easy and quick -- half the resort is west of 106 and half is east AND we are one house off the road that runs parallel to the shore & Teeth of the Dog. In fact LL 106 is about a 6 iron from the middle of the 4th fairway of the Teeth.
Just a 5 minute drive to fine grocery, wine and spirits stores. Outstanding up-scale shopping at the Marina.
The town of La Romana is only a few miles away. It's very safe, easy to access and the restaurants are very good and affordable.
