About Alan Miller
I am a resident of Florida and spend summers in Connecticut.
Alan Miller purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Alan Miller chose Cofresi
My wife and I built the Villa in Cofresi after we vacationed there with our adult children and grandchildren. We really like the Dominican people, the country is beautiful and not spoiled by tourists. It's easy to get to with lots of flights from the US and Europe. This is an perfect spot for families looking for an affordable Caribbean getaway.
What makes this Villa unique
The house has plenty of space so even large groups do not feel on top of each other. The maids provide great service which enhance the visit. All windows and doors have screens, rooms have ceiling fans and bedrooms have air conditioning. We have the benefit of strong trade winds that keeps the house and property comfortable.

Our Perfect Vacation
Our family had a perfect vacation at Casi Cielo and I would definitely recommend this property. We were there from July 25th through August 6th and did not want to return home! The location of the property is convenient to the beach, convenience stores, and Ocean World. All were within walking distance so we had no need to rent a vehicle.
The owner was very prompt to answer questions and provided excellent information to assure that our vacation was nothing short of perfect. The property and views were more beautiful than the photos. The housekeepers (Lena and Francesca) were there for our every need. Their service was unbeatable and their cooking was loved by everyone in our family! It was definitely relaxing to have all of the household chores, cooking, and laundry done! This is the first vacation that I (the mom) got to relax!
Ellio, the grounds keeper was excellent and ran errands for us. He also went out of his way to give our daughters (ages 6,11,and 11) an education on the tropical coconut trees. This was a very good time!
Another person (Gus) came to the property and took care of the planning for all of our excursions. This was great as we did not have to leave the villa or disrupt the children playing in the pool. I even managed to get a pedicure while sitting on the beautiful veranda and enjoying the view.
We went out on the catamaran excursion and loved it! The views were amazing and the staff was great! The snorkeling was great and the children really enjoyed the outing.
We also went to Ocean World and swam with the dolphins. This was by far a wonderful experience for the entire family and a must do for all ages! They even have a DVD you may purchase to remember your trip.
We will definitely return to the Dominican Republic and stay at Casi Cielo! Thanks to everyone for giving our family the perfect vacation!
Lovely relaxing time in a great villa
Very large and lovely home. Well maintained. Lena the cook and elio the manager were great. The pool is a bit chilly but nice on a hot day. Two good restaurants and an atm in a 5 min walk. We gave Lena cash and she bought us all the food and it was great. The beach at cofresi is so so. But much better than frozen lakes and snow!
House was lovely. Did not like the forced maid option.
Would have liked the option to say yes or no to practically living with the maids. Housekeeper was invaluable in the services provided.
Fantastic Getaway with Friends
Casi Cielo was absolutely beautiful!! The view was amazing! We were only 3 couples, but the villa is very large and could accommodate a much larger group. It is perfect for an adult getaway, family trip with children, or a couple families. The villa was nicely decorated and the bedrooms were quite spacious.
The entire staff for the villa was very welcoming and very friendly. Lena and Veronica spoiled us with their cooking. They also made pina coladas, strawberry daiquiris, and fruit punch for us while we relaxed by the pool. Gabino, the property manager, stopped by to say hello and introduce himself. We arranged a catamaran and snorkeling excursion, as well as massages at the villa through Gus. We had a great time on the catamaran and enjoyed a beautiful day! We enjoyed our couples massages on the second story veranda with the cool breeze. They were only $30 per person for an hour. On our last night, we were entertained by a local band on the back patio. What a wonderful experience!
The weather was absolutely perfect! It was in the low 80's every day with a nice breeze. We had such a great time with our friends at this beautiful villa; we didn't want to leave. We hope to return again. Alan was very easy to work with. He responded to all my emails and questions very promptly and was very helpful. I would highly recommend a vacation at the Casi Cielo.
Very nice property
This house was perfect for 16 family members. We had plenty of room and enjoyed the nice pool. Massages at the house were very enjoyable. The staff was so nice and very dependable. Easy walk to beach and Ocean World.
So happy you enjoyed your time at the house. Thanks for the review.
We had a fabulous time, but the only issue we had was the showers didn't work half the time and lack of hot water. Otherwise, we totally enjoyed ourselves and the staff was fantastic.
Thanks for your comment about the showers. The local plumber has parts on order and has been having problems with delivery. We are going to expedite. Sorry for the difficulties..
