About Claudia Langman

I am an artist, designer and home builder. My husband is an attorney. We have been coming to the Dominican Republic with our children for over 18 years. We love the culture, the people, the food, and the resort where the villa is located. We are seasoned travelers but always love to return to this beautiful home.

Claudia Langman purchased this villa in 2006

Why Claudia Langman chose Dominican Republic North Coast

We love the Dominican for it's diversity, it's beautiful beaches, and it's people. There is so much to do there because it is a large island with mountains, desert, jungle,waterfall and river tours. The cities are old and historic, and the museums are unique and interesting. The food is fantastic, and the kite surfing in our area is amazing to watch, or to learn. At the end of a day of exploring it is so nice to return to the tranquil setting of this home.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located in an extremely well run gated and guarded community. It is beautifully maintained, quiet and very safe, yet 5 minutes from Cabarete and Sosua where there are great restaurants, shopping, more beaches, kite and wind surfing, zip lining, snorkel, skindiving, jungle river tours and other excursions.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy the lifestyle of the rich and blissfully unemployed!

This property is located in a completely secure, gated community just minutes away from the airport. The large home is tastefully decorated and perfectly maintained, beautifully and thoughtfully designed in a manner which invites togetherness but ensures privacy. Relax in a garden setting by your private pool, at one of the community pools, or at one of several small, semi-secluded beaches within strolling distance. Local off-site amenities include an international variety of first-rate restaurants, a charmingly vibrant public beach and a new water park.

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the property were spot on. It is hard to capture the beauty and ambiance for the property.

We rented this property along with two families, there were 11 of us and we never felt cramped. There was plenty of space and rooms for everyone to stretch out.

We can't say enough about Lilli, she is an amazing addition and had the best breakfast prepared for us everyday. We enjoyed having Johnie her husband cook for us on two days. Those two days, the kids devoured their meals and the adults had all they could do to finish, as the portions were great and we can't say enough how much we enjoyed every dish.

The house was very clean, the property was secure and we never felt as though we had to watch our stuff.

We visited the beach club, property pools and beaches almost daily, along with using the pool at the house multiple times a day.

We had a hard time leaving as we all wished we could extend the vacation more.

Claudia answered our many questions leading up to the trip and while we were there. The staff at sea side ranch were all very responsive and checked in (not over bearing) to ensure we had what we needed and were enjoying our time.

We were able to take advantage of the horse stables and trail rides during our visit.

We highly recommend this property for other families or groups looking to spend a week on the Domimican.

Amazing Villa surrounded by paradise

  • 5 of 5

Sea Horse Ranch is a beautiful community and this villa does not disappoint. The private swimming pool with a water feature was so relaxing and peaceful. Just a short walk from the yard is the club restaurant and more swimming pools. Property is very clean and well-maintained. The housekeeper, Lili, made our vacation extra special with her impeccable service. She only speaks Spanish, so we were lucky to have a Spanish speaker in our group! Owner was very easy to communicate with. Fingers crossed that we get the privilege to return here again soon!

Note: Highly recommend flying into Puerta Plata if possible. Santiago airport is a 2 hour drive.

You're own private paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Receiving the detailed information that was provided to us before our stay outlining what to pack, where to go for food, fun, shopping, etc. was a great start to our trip! It not only eliminated the guesswork about knowing what to do and what to expect, it also got us super excited about our trip! Having never been to the Dominican Republic before, it was extremely helpful to have. It also gave me the sense that the owners really wanted to ensure that we had a good time, and all of their advice was spot on.

Upon arrival, we were blown away by the beauty of the house and of Sea Horse Ranch in general. We had seen wonderful photos, but it was even more amazing in person. The open-air lifestyle can be enjoyed in the main living area as well as the lovely outdoor verandas, and we enjoyed many hours sitting and conversing with the ceiling fans providing a very pleasant breeze. One morning we even practiced yoga on the large outside veranda overlooking the pool!

The house is very spacious, and there is plenty of room to spread out if that is what you desire. Sleeping was comfortable as each room has it's own air conditioner and bathrooms are a plenty, each with their own flair (loved all of the tile choices). It was obvious that great thought and care was put into every detail of this home and it is maintained to the highest standards. We saw landscapers, pool cleaners, etc. doing whatever needed to be done. They were never obtrusive, and they do a fantastic job of keeping everything in perfect condition.

It was so nice to be able to relax and spend time in the pool at the house and also be able to walk to the club pool and private beach to get a change of scenery without having to travel. When we did venture out to the public beach, we enjoyed that experience as well. The locals are very friendly and eager to please.

As for the food, Lily made us a delicious breakfast every morning and I personally enjoyed the fresh fruit -- both the colorful presentation and the taste! When we ate out, every restaurant we tried was as promised; from La Casita de Papi on the beach amidst the local nightlife and twinkling lights, to Castle Club on the hilltop, with it's breathtaking views.

I’d say there is something for everyone on a vacation to Sea Horse Ranch and I can’t wait for my next opportunity to return!

I can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I had the best vacation in the DR! And I owe it all to Claudia. Her welcoming, charming and luxurious home was way more than I'd expected. And the care and thoughtfulness from her and Lily, her housekeeper, made all the difference. As this was our first visit to the DR, we really appreciated her information of where to go and what to do. Highlights were the beach, dining at Papi's on the beach and our gourmet dinner at the Castle Club. I wish we were there now relaxing by the pool and enjoying the villa! We can't wait to go back! I've already recommended it to others.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

By far, one of the best vacations I have ever had! Gorgeous dream home in a gated community with exquisite marble and wrought iron detail, private swimming pool, and huge stone patio. Went with large group of friends and all of us were blown away by the beauty and comfort of the home in addition to everything this location has to offer. We had a blast! Incredible dining, breathtaking ocean views, walking paths, and horse riding. All of the staff we encountered in the resort went above and beyond to make sure we were safe and all of our needs were met. No detail spared and I can't wait to go back!
