Guestbook comments from the owner


Where do I begin? Once we found the villa tucked back off the small roads, we were in Heaven! We were greeted kindly by Diogenes (I might have spelled his name wrong) who waited until we finally arrived late in the night, to show us around the villa and give us a few tips. We also met Juni, our wonderful night guard who we quickly befriended, as he was such a nice guy. Our days were filled with relaxing by the pool, eating fresh fish from a local fisherman that Diogenes helped us find (muy delicioso!) and taking strolls along the pristine beaches below. The views from the villa were breathtaking and everything about being at our villa was the perfect paradise. Nearby there was great snorkeling along the rocks at the end of Playa Colorado. One day we took a boat trip to nearby beaches – Diogenes helped to set this up for us. We loved being able to relax on other surrounding beaches and enjoy the local cuisine on Playa Rincon, Playa Fronton and La Playita. Our house keeper, Odalis, was very nice and very helpful in cooking a few meals for us and looking after our rooms. Diogenes and Odalis were willing to bring anything we needed from in town, if we weren’t going to be out and about that day, so that was helpful too. All in all it was a truly wonderful experience and we thank you for that! We hope to return one day!

Great villa by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We spent there one week with our family. The house is ideal for 6-8 persons and it was slightly too big for the three of us (but of course it did not bother us). The location is just perfect. Right on a secluded beach. There is a very nice private swimming pool right on the terrace overlooking the ocean. Although there are some other houses in this guarded area you have an impression being completely lost on (luxury) island.

The property is very well maintained. It's 20 minutes to the nearest decent shop on a bumpy road, but we were very well informed by the owner about the infrastructure around. We really would like to come back there again and definitely recommend it to our friends.

The property is lovely, right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Really lovely house, right on the beach, secluded location, 3 other houses on the property, the gardens all around the house are well maintained, the pool and pool area are also well maintained - pool chlorine level was low - I prefer a saline pool so was wary of a chlorine pool and had no problem swimming in this pool , each bedroom with it's own bath, nice living room area and great kitchen. At night the sound of the surf is right there, the rain on the roof - if it rains - is magical.

If you are looking for a totally secluded get away to write a book, decompress, reconnect with the missed sleep/a book you want to read/sun/sand/surf, this was a lovely getaway for us. The water is a lovely blue/light green and bathtub warm. The body surfing was great. If you plan to come here staying at the pool on the property is the best way to go; there are not beach chairs if you want to stay at the beach all day.

If you want to go away from the house and go to a restaurant or coffee shop this is not that place, but you can rent boats and guides to take you to these places.

We opted to have a chef prepare local cuisine, and it is well worth it, while we were there the locals who fish from the beach area/surrounding waters showed us a lobster and inquired if we wanted to purchase it, not being spanish speakers I said "Pasquala" our chef's name, and the following evening that lobster was on the BBQ for us.

The internet is intermittent, so be prepared to not stress over it.

There are 2 international airports, we were advised to come into Santa Domingo - its a 3 + hour drive to the house. The roads in DR are great. The final driveway down to the house is not paved so is a 20 minute drive. Renting a car worked just fine, we did a combination of renting a car for some of us and taking the car transport recommended by the owner for others ($210 1 way for up to 12 passengers)

The owner, Vincent, is very responsive. The staff at the house are interested in making sure your stay is as you would expect, they do not speak any other language than

Spanish, so we did spend sometime with Google translate.

Enjoy this lovely slice of paradise

A unique and wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at Villa Bahia Rincon. Our great experiences began even before we booked the trip, thanks to the owner's responsiveness to our inquiries. Vincent kindly arranged for our auto rentals (SUVs are a must) and for dinners prepared by Pasquala. Our group of 8 (four couples) arrived late due to delays flying out of JFK but once again Vincent arranged for Diogenes to meet us on the road into the villa, and dinner was waiting when we arrived.

We loved everything about the property -- right on the beautiful Playa Colorado beach. We saw very few people on the beach during our stay, but we happily purchased fish and lobster from local fishermen. The beaches are absolutely beautiful and pristine.

The villa is an open-air design on both levels, so guests should expect that some bugs will find their way in but the bedrooms feature netting over the beds, and we didn't consider this a problem.

We spent most of our time on the beach or around the pool. The staff are very warm and dedicated local people. Diogenes was very helpful and patient with our limited Spanish, and brought us a few items we requested on his motorbike. He and Dulis kept the house very clean and orderly during our stay.

We recommend the Lindo supermarket in Las Terrenas, and lunch on the beach in Las Galeras.

It's a bit of a hike to get to Villa Bahia Rincon, but it is absolutely worth the effort. We recommend it to anyone seeking an off-the-beaten-track Caribbean villa vacation.

Trip of a lifetime!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I've been waiting to vacation here and add my review to the others! This was a family trip of a lifetime. My wife and I and our 5 children (oldest age 13) traveled here for a family vacation. Everything was not just as expected and described here, but BETTER! I have never seen such an incredible, natural paradise. We visited Playa Rincon and spent some time before returning to our "private" beach which is unparalleled. Dulis and Diogenes are gems and couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Winter time was very pleasant with the temperature and no need for air conditioning. We found the last bit of the drive very interesting and had a van but was no problem. The local cuisine was prepared one night and we found our children eating 2 and 3 helping of Pasquala's dinner! I didn't realize that the homes along this area are actually behind a guard gate and that we would have a night watchman. Security was never a question or issue. There are some local farmers that pass through and I had left some sandals on the beach that mysteriously disappeared but can only blame myself for that. That loss was the only issue that came up and didn't disrupt any of the enjoyment. I could only wish to be able to visit this location again!
