Fantastic from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Punta Cana several times and stayed in various locations. The house was perfectly situated in Tortuga and easy to get everywhere either walking or using the golf carts. Jose and Peter we’re not only an incredible host and manager but soon became good friends that I will continue to stay in touch with. The house was impeccable, clean and always peaceful. We highly recommend you consider staying here for your next vacation.

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week! Peter and Jose thought of everything! They arranged our airport transfer and they were at the house to greet us upon our arrival. They took the time to show us around Tortuga Bay. They had stocked the refrigerator with enough food to get us through the first day and everything in the house was perfect. Throughout the week they were a phone call or text away for any questions we had. Peter’s suggestions for restaurants and a day excursion were excellent and he was very helpful making the arrangements. The beach, golf course, and tennis courts were just a short golf cart ride away and the lagoon is a must see! The outdoor space was private, lush and a true tropical oasis. We enjoyed grilling by the pool and eating outside by the pool. The house was very well appointed and very comfortable. Thanks for a great week!

Wonderful home and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Great house in the Punta Cana development. Easy walk or golf cart ride to the clay tennis courts, gym, beaches, golf pro shop, spa etc. The house is well located but still feels secluded. Take advantage of having the housekeeper prepare a traditional Dominican meal for dinner - the small extra charge is worth it as it was the best of many great meals we had in the area. The nearby Punta Cana Village (and soon to open Blue Mall) mean that you do not have to go far for supplies, other good dining options, etc. One last word about the owners - Jose went far beyond what we see at other VRBO properties to make us comfortable and make sure we had a great stay. He even made a special trip (unrequested) to the airport as we left to reunite us with a piece of jewelry we left behind. We will definitely go back.

Had a great week!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property with all its accommodations! The home had everything We needed....internet, flat screen TV's with cable in every room, hot water, blow dryers in each bathroom and A/C even in the family room, among other things! Everything was so peaceful. The backyard felt like heaven with the pool and lovely terrace full of trees and beautiful flowers; hammocks and lounge chairs. The owners also provided an employee who kept everything at its best during my stay. I also had free access to the Beach which was less than 5 minutes away. W would do it again in a flash!

wonderful experience! (part I)

  • 4 of 5

I apologize for having taken so long to write a review for it merits a good one! We had a very lovely stay at Villa Careta. Jose and Peter are so very warm and welcoming and also organized and professional: all great attributes for hosts of a rental property. Taking care of the “paperwork” for the rental was straightforward and trouble-free. They took care of our airport transfer and the golf cart rental prior to our arrival and then personally met us and showed us the property and environs when we got to Tortuga Bay in Punta Cana. We felt so welcomed by their hospitality and their attention to the details: fridge stocked with the next morning’s breakfast, fresh fruit, Dominican coffee and tasty rum. They even thoughtfully gave a gift of sand toys to our two young children to have fun on the beach. The house and outdoor poolside were elegant in a casual, relaxing way and we were want for nothing with it being so well equipped. We travelled as a group of 3 adults and 2 young children and there was plenty of space to relax and enjoy the attractively appointed rooms. They also kindly helped us arrange for a cook to come a few times during our stay. When we were there (Dec 2013), the Punta Cana Resort was in a process of transition and many of the amenities and features of the area were unavailable or in a state of flux. Jose and Peter made themselves available to help us muddle through trying to arrange things with the inexperienced new resort staff and affiliated companies which was going above and beyond for the sake of their guests. Staying at Villa Careta is very relaxing and low-key—definitely suited for those who want to get away from the busy resort environment but still prefer the enclave of a secluded resort. It is most suitable for those who are happy to arrange their own activities and dining and those who truly enjoy mellow relaxing. We found that the best way to make reservations, whether for activities or dining in the area, was to do the arrangements in person. We enjoyed going to the Ojos Indigenos Eco Park, going on a motor boat trip (unfortunately sailing, which we would have preferred, was no longer an option at the time), checking out the Punta Cana village while we went grocery shopping, having a spa treatment at Six Senses, and of course lazing around and playing at the several beaches in the area. It would have been most ideal to rent a car for the week but we managed just fine without one.

Villa Careta

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our four teenage children had a fantastic Christmas vacation in the lovely Villa Careta in Punta Cana Resort. It truly was the perfect fit for our family!

When we arrived, we were welcomed by the owners who gave us a tour of their beautiful home. They gave the kids a quick golf cart operating lesson and guided them to a resort restaurant. The owners were so friendly and helpful and just a phone call away if you have any questions!

The terrace overlooking pool is the perfect place for dining. We began each morning there for breakfast and chose to stay home and grill on the gas BBQ several evenings. The kitchen is large and well equipped and made it easy to prepare many dinners at home. The pool and surrounding areas are so peaceful and beautifully landscaped. There are numerous choices for lounging and reading; the hammocks being a favorite for the teens! The home is so beautiful and comfortable it was hard to motivate the kids to leave for a dinner out. All looked forward to late evening card games back home in the villa!

An added bonus is access to the Punta Cana resort, which is a nice walk or a short golf cart ride away. Our family enjoyed the golf, oversized chess, beach volleyball, lagoon hike and swim and Segway tour. We were there at a busy time of year, but the beaches were never crowded and were always plenty of available lounge chairs to choose from under gorgeous swaying palm trees.

I would highly recommend Villa Careta for your stay in the Dominican Republic.
