Fantastic villa! Spacious accomodations & staff

  • 5 of 5

Villa Carolisol is fantastic and surpassed our expectations. The accommodations, atmosphere, and entire experience were 5 star! The listing description didn't do the villa justice with its close location to everything we could want, internal room layout and villa amenities.

We had 3 generations (2 parents, 2 grandparents and 3 kids: 12, 9 &6) staying for 10 days and it met all of our needs -and more. The rooms and villa were spacious, the staff beyond accommodating -Maria and Santa are unbelievable! (Anything you want cooked or cleaned, they do with a smile and fast). The owner, Gary, was also extremely helpful when we asked for additional suggestions on where we could go to experience PoP. In fact, everyone - from the internal house staff to the external (pool man, driver) were beyond helpful and friendly.

Everything was taken care of for us to truly relax and enjoy all the Puerto Plata could offer; without the "touristy feel." The private pool and close proximity to the beach, porch hammock, multiple rooms for socializing in, numerous bedrooms and bathrooms so everyone had their own space, large kitchen and dining areas, and wrap around porches all make it top notch! The inside and outside of the home and decor are beautiful and large.

Everything is well kept, clean, safe, and in close proximity to a variety of activities: Beautiful beaches and amazing ocean-wild life experiences at Ocean World (dolphin swimming, shark swimming, sea lion hugging) that you can walk to, great snorkeling, delicious cuisine at gourmet restaurants like Le Papillon, close drive to sightsee at the local Fort or Amber museum, Alto Teleferico cable car, go souvenir shopping, jewelry or cigar shopping, and so much more...

Coming from people who are world travelers (including the South Pacific, Caribbean, Latin America, Asia and Europe), fantastic memories were created here and we can’t wait to come back. We highly recommend Villa Carolisol!

This was our third time staying at the Villa and again it was awesome! We absolutely adore Maria and love how pampered she makes you feel. This is an excellent location and close to many wonderful attractions. Clean, comfortable and well looked after. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone!

WE had an excellent time

  • 4 of 5

We could not have had a better time , being so close to the Ocean and not far from fine restaurants certainly compliments the Villa. We felt comfortable and secure in the large gated community. The Villa staff are friendly and helpful and the food served was excellent,they even had gluten free food !!! The Villa was clean with a refreshing pool that nobody could resist at high noon !! We are heading back ASAP.

I just stayed at this villa and had an amazing time!!! The staff was great, and the location was perfect. We were right across the street from the beach and up the street from ocean world. This atmosphere was perfect for anyone looking for a little r&r. I will never stay at a resort again after getting spoiled here. Maria, this women is one is an amazing cook and i would love to bring her her home with me. You definitely get your money's worth from this place and I highly recommend it. This is the place that I would only tell my friends but the place was so great I need you to know about it. This place felt like home away from home. Gary took care of everything, all I did was pay and show up. Make sure you tip the staff because they deserve it!!!! Thanks Gary........

A Great Spacious House..

  • 5 of 5

Let me first start off by by thanking Gary for all his help and patience with booking this vacation. This is a beautiful home inside and out, plenty of space and very well maintained. Mary the maid, her cooking is amazing,and she was a big help with the food shopping.

Now as far as the vacation, the location was close to everything, the beach was a stone throw away, clubs,restaurant,bars, and stores were all within walking distance.

This trip was a guys getaway, in which I need to thank Gary again for his trust in renting to us. The pool was perfect for cooling off before heading to Sosua or Cabarete for the night. Rambo the car service took us everywhere we wanted to go for a small fee.

Me and the guys look forward to staying here again very soon (September) because this house is amazing in size and is in a very safe,quiet area. Thank You Gary.
