Private Oceanfront Hot Tub For 4!

WHEN DECIDING ON WHICH VILLA TO RENT, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE VILLA HAS A DIESEL GENERATOR BACK UP POWER AND AUTOMATIC TRANSFER SWITCH. THIS VILLA DOES.

IT IS A SIGNIFICANT EXPENSE TO INSTALL A 20 KW DIESEL GENERATOR AND MAINTAIN IT IN GOOD OPERATING CONDITION, SO, MANY VILLAS RELY ONLY UPON BATTERIES AND INVERTERS. THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT THE BATTERIES DISCHARGE AFTER AN HOUR OR SO AND YOU ARE LEFT WITHOUT LIGHTS OR AIR CONDITIONING.

IT IS VERY COMMON TO HAVE POWER OUTAGES IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. IT'S BEST TO BE SURE AND STAY IN A VILLA WITH A DIESEL GENERATOR.

Villa Flamingo is the most luxurious OCEANFRONT vacation residence in Cabarete, Domincan Republic period! Private infinity pool with swim up bar including staircase leading from the pool to your bedroom. its second to none. Villa Flamingo is not just another beach front rental property, but a luxury designed villa, complete with all Italian marble floors, waterfalls, 4 bedrooms; 3 with private en-suites, Infinity (negative edge) pool with swim up bar, WATERFALL, 2nd floor patio and sun chairs, outside wet bar and wood/coal BBQ, full modern kitchen, private 2 story patio, maid, 24 hour security guards, 24 hour electricity, generator backup, gardener/beach caretaker, all designed and furnished with quality furniture and fine art.

Villa Belvedere; a similar 4 bedroom villa, is located directly behind Villa Flamingo.

Both of these villas are available to rent separately or together with Villa Flamingo.

Villa Flamingo Location and Atmosphere: The owners have designed and furnished Villa Flamingo with all the amenities they would expect for their own vacation comfort as well as yours. This includes, but its not limited to full air conditioning In the bedrooms including individual settings for each bedroom, and back-up of both electrical and water supply. Located just 20 minutes east of the Puerto Plata Airport, Villa Flamingo is located in the beach town of Cabarete within a gated and secure court of 4 luxury homes. Beach Front on an expansive secluded beach, Villa Flamingo is near the downtown of Cabarete, as well as the police station, pharmacy, banks, grocery stores and restaurants. Once you enter the gates of our stone laid courtyard, your new luxury vacation villa will be just steps away. The soft pastel pink and white color of Villa Flamingo will make you realize that you are about to begin your Caribbean vacation in a real Caribbean tranquil atmosphere..

Inside Villa Flamingo: From the moment you step into Villa Flamingo, you will be struck by the elegant and spacious open floor plan of the livingroom, dining room and kitchen area. However, you will be awestruck by the rock-wall waterfall whose waters gently flow into a pool of shells. On your left, two large windows allow for a full view of beach and outside gazebo.

The interior incorporates dramatic open spaces, majestic marble floors throughout, and high ceiling fans. Air conditioning in the living room and each bedroom, with ceiling fans as well as comfortable ocean cross breezes are your choice to keep your Casa cool.

Your dining area, located adjacent to the kitchen between the kitchen, embraces a custom made table, with eight (12) complete place settings.

Inside Villa Flamingo: This gourmet meal can be whipped up in your fully equipped kitchen, complete with cookware and utensils, stainless steel appliances that include a full size refrigerator, gas range, exhaust fan, and microwave. Other small appliances such as a coffee machine, toaster and blender.

Your living room with comfortable reclining sofas beckons your call to kick back and relax to the hd tv, blue ray player or mp3 player. Or simply enjoy the restful sounds of your rock-wall waterfall. Tur on the ceiling fans and open the French Doors to keep you cool, and with a full couch and love seat; both recliners, you can accommodate all your guests or family in comfort.

RECOMENDATIONS FOR ACTIVITIES AND TOURS:

DAY 1; HORSEBACK RIDING BEACH AND MOUNTAINS

If you are renting for a week, a horseback ride on the beach is a nice way to start your vacation, followed by an afternoon in the pool.

DAY 2; BEACH TOUR DAY

Another fantastic way to spend the day is to hire a taxi to do a beach tour. This brings you to several very interesting and fun places including a small plantation, a hidden waterfall where you can watch the locals dive from very high perches, The Blue Lagoon, where you can zip line off a cliff and dive into a 70' deep cenote. At the same stop, you can explore an ancient cave.

After the zip lining and swimming, it;s time for lunch on Playa Grande Beach. This beach has been voted as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! The fresh seafood and chicken on the menu and drinks including coco locos and pina coladas will leave you ready to continue exploring one or two more beaches. I recommend Playa Diamonte where you can find fresh water sulphur springs bubbling up from the sand on the beach and can walk out 300 yards and still be in waste deep calm clear water. Another beautiful beach is Playa Calleton.

DAY 3; MONKEY JUNGLE ZIP LINING

Monkey Jungle is a short 30 minute ride from the villa.

A Taxi can take you there in his van (up to 6).

They have a pretty intense zip line circuit. They also have a really cool monkey habitat where you can feed the small monkeys as they sit on your shoulders and heads and eat out of your hand! If you don't want to zipline, you can just do the monkey jungle and sit at the bar to wait for the zip liners to return.

DAY 4; CABARETE BEACH MASSAGE AND SHOPPING

A day at Cabarete beach is a very relaxing way to pass a day in this wonderful beach town. Many of the establishments will not charge you to use their beach chairs if you buy a drink or snack from them. While on the beach, there are vendors in blue shirts that are licensed to give massages and pedicures on the beach.

It's a must to have an on beach massage followed by a mani-pedi while drinking a cold beer or pina colada. Very relaxing indeed! There are also many shops to explore in town if you need a break from the beach.

DAY 5; PRIVATE CHEF AT VILLA AND MASSAGE

If you are tired of having fun away from the villa, hire our private chef to indulge you with their fantastic meals throughout the day and night. They will meet you the day before to prepare the menu for the next day and stock the fridge with groceries necessary to prepare breakfast the next morning. After breakfast, they will prepare the menu you desire for lunch and dinner then go shopping. This is beyond any doubt most guest's favorite experience during their stay! If you want the ultimate in relaxation, couple the chef experience with a full day of massages, manicures and pedicures poolside or on the beach and you are in for a real treat.

DAY 6; SOSUA BEACH AND PUERTO PLATA CABLE CAR

A morning ride into Puerto Plata to take the cable car to the top of Isabella del Torres is a memorable experience. The views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking! There are also trails and gardens that you explore on top, as well as a little restaurant.

After the cable car, ask your taxi driver to take you to the old fort where you can learn a little history about the area. Then, on to the Amber museum.

After the Amber Museum, a little snorkelling and lunch at Sosua Beach will be a great way to wrap up your week. The shopping at Sosua Beach is much more affordable than in Cabarete.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

Other suggestions that can be explored in addition to or instead of those listed above are Ocean World, 27 Waterfalls, a visit to Santo Domingo, quad tour of the mountains and beach, mountain biking, kite surfing, surfing, sailing, deep sea fishing, catamaran snorkeling, night out in Sosua and Cabarete, UFO Museum, Brugal Rum factory tour, Rio San Juan Boat Ride..........The options are endless. You can even climb the tallest peak in the Caribbean; Pico Duarte!

About Frank Leone

My name is Frank. I have owned Villa Flamingo since May 2011. I have owned Villa Leone, next door, since 2005 and Villa Belvedere, right behind Villa Flamingo, since 2014. I can often be found at the villas working and adding new and interesting improvements. A short 3 hour flight from Philadelphia; my home town, Cabarete offers everything that I was looking for in a quiet beach town with easy access to the east coast. I believe that if you visit Villa Leone, Villa Flamingo or Villa Belvedere the villa and the town of Cabarete will impress you as much as they did me.

We have many returning guests that come once or twice/year. Some even buy a condo and never go back home!

Hope to see you on the beach very soon!

Ciao,

Frank

Notes:
The villa is totally private and includes the maid. Your private beach is cleaned daily, as well as the pool. The pool is an infinity pool (negative edge) with swim up stools. The pool is a 5ft pool, therefore, No Diving. We also provide 24 hour security guards within our gated courtyard and they make rounds frequently. Cabarete is a very safe, perfect for families and for those seeking a romantic getaway in luxury and privacy. WHEN DECIDING ON WHICH VILLA TO RENT, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE VILLA HAS A DIESEL GENERATOR BACK UP POWER AND AUTOMATIC TRANSFER SWITCH. THIS VILLA DOES. IT IS A SIGNIFICANT EXPENSE TO INSTALL A 20 KW DIESEL GENERATOR AND MAINTAIN IT IN GOOD OPERATING CONDITION, SO, MANY VILLAS RELY ONLY UPON BATTERIES AND INVERTERS. THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT THE BATTERIES DISCHARGE AFTER AN HOUR OR SO AND YOU ARE LEFT WITHOUT LIGHTS OR AIR CONDITIONING. IT IS VERY COMMON TO HAVE POWER OUTAGES IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.

The most fabulous property in DR!!!

  • 5 of 5

After much debate on locations and hotels vs all-inclusives vs a house rental....we decided on The Flamingo in Cabarete and I don't regret our decision one bit. 8 friends stayed in this house and every single one of us want to rebook next year, have told our other friends and family, and want to rent the whole neighborhood!!

Frank was phenomenal in his communication with me, even through a hurricane - which PS, "generally" hurricanes don't affect the DR quite in the same way they do many other islands....so don't let that worry you, and you can feel completely confident they'll be honest in saying what is good or not (as far as conditions). Frank answered so many questions, at all hours of the day, sent pictures for reassurance...you name it, he would do it to help me out.

The staff that works at the house are equally as impressive. Everyone is very nice and extremely helpful. Some ability to speak Spanish will help a lot, so do your homework! They kept our place clean, they helped us get to town, they made us feel very safe the whole week...someone was always around at the gated entrance, or within the neighborhood to assist with whatever was needed.

I would give The Flamingo, Frank, and all the staff a 10 star review if it was an option. Thanks to everyone for a great and very memorable trip. Hope to see you all again soon....please give lots of love to Luna for us!!!

I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you all back soon! Ciao, Frank and the Staff at Villa Flamingo

Great location, great weather, and great people.

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic with great views of the ocean being just right outside any window. The people that work for Frank are amazing, the security guards don't really speak english but have a translator that works well. Maria the landlord goes above and beyond her duties to make sure everyone is doing well and if need anything. The security dogs are awesome as well especially Luna who is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. Privacy was great definitely a place to escape everything and enjoy your vacation. Getting the chef was also a great thing to have to have a whole day of relaxing and not having to cook. Would totally recommend this Villa to anyone who was thinking of staying here. Thanks to everyone that helped us out and place and vacation were excellent.

Family Fun at Villa Flamingo

  • 5 of 5

Villa Flamingo was a great place to spend a week with our family of 10. As a Christmas present every other year we (the grandparents) give our kids and grandkids (4 of them, now ages 2 to 14) a week together somewhere warm. We've vacationed as a family 8 times in different locations. Having never been to the Dominican Republic, but having heard mixed reviews, we decided to take a chance, and we're very glad we did. All the adults agreed it was the best property so far - enough bedrooms/baths for all, beautiful infinity pool and right on the beach. The kids had a ball swimming in the pool, playing in the sand, walking the beach and looking for crabs at night. Other reviewers have mentioned the rough water, but we are used to Atlantic Ocean waves in the Northeast, and we all went in the water during our stay. We had fun experiences in the local community and never felt uneasy in our forays outside the villa. Our experience may have been different, as none of the other villas in the complex were rented, so we had the entire property to ourselves. Miguel, the maintenance guy, always asked if everything was okay, and immediately addressed any problems. We were happy that our son is more fluent in Spanish than the rest of us, as it helped to converse with the staff. The maid (who also turned out to be our chef) spoke very little English, but we got along just fine with sign language when we didn't have our "translator" close by. An added bonus for us was the direct flight and only a 20-minute transport to and from the villa. Great experience!

“My Wedding at the Fabulous Villa Flamingo”

  • 5 of 5

I recently held my wedding at Villa Flamingo. The Villa is located in a serene spot on the edge of the ocean, away from the hustle and bustle of the Cabarete, but close enough to enjoy Cabarete and Sosua’s vibrant nightlife. This villa is spacious, beautiful and clean. The staff at the villa were exceptional. The chef prepared an excellent traditional Dominican buffet for the wedding guest. Everyone went above and beyond what I required and made my big day one I will never forget!

Having a private beach right outside your door is a great way to relieve the stress of planning a wedding. The sunrises and sunsets are beautiful. I whole heartedly recommend them as the ideal venue for your destination wedding. I definitely will be back.

The house and the staff are perfection. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and the location is perfect. The oceanfront with the spectacular view can't be beat. And for those who are not salt water fans or good swimmers as the rip current can be a bit strong, the pool was excellent. Highly recommend booking the chef. It was the best treat arrive and do absolutely nothing for the entire first day. Lots of beach walking venders, buyer beware. Steer clear of the snorkel trip to paradise island. The snorkeling sucks but the rum makes up for it. Frank is the best. Highly responsive, all questions and requests addressed. Great vacation, highly recommend this property
