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 Dominican Republic North Coast

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

House was lovely. Did not like the forced maid option.

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great staff

  • 4 of 5

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.

Excellent family location.

  • 3 of 5

Our family did really enjoy quite a bit about this home. It is beautiful and very well built. The property is not being maintained to its description but could come back with attention. Areas we requested attention on we're dirty curtains, broken items and a cloudy pool for 4 days. The DR operates with a very relaxed attitude and if I had not emailed the owner I don't think theses issues would have been addressed at all.

The view is amazing. The pool gorgeous once clean and clear. The staff will do as you request and laundry is done correctly as requested. The location is spotty with both vacant dumpy lots nearby as well as others just as nice. Some very good and reasonable restaurants very close within walking distance.

We took games and paint by numbers and had a very relaxing 2 weeks in the sun. Excellent verandas provide coverage for those wanting to be near the pool but out of the sun directly. Lots of space to have freedom. Our group was 9 adults ranging from 20 to 68. We all got sick for 3-4 days each. but recovered while there. Owner provided jug water in ample supply and staff washed everything in the jug water. We think it was the Soft tub butter left out that got us sick because it was used in the eggs and on the toast. La Serena market nearby has everything you could want and little down the street market was great for snacks and supplemental drinks.

Would love to stay again and hope for updated replacement of cushion covers, drapes, linens and pillows to restore this beautiful home to what it once was.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for bringing these issues to my attention. We are taking action to correct these issues. I glad you were still able to enjoy the visit to the house and hope to see you back some day for another vacation. best regards Alan Up-date: In June 016, we replaced towels, bedding and reupholster sofas in the house. Thanks for your comments and suggestions.
