Villa, 8 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 10+ Baths, (Sleeps 16-24)
We built Villa Castellamonte as a family vacation retreat and are happy to help others experience the luxury, relaxation and total enjoyment available here in the Dominican Republic.
Jason purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Jason chose Cabrera
Our property was designed with family in mind so it lends itself beautifully to larger groups such as destination weddings, family reunions, corporate retreats and similar sized groups.
What makes this Villa unique
This luxury villa is truly a unique and unusual vacation rental for a number of reasons. The architecture as a Tuscan villa in the Caribbean is further enhanced through highly detailed hand-painted frescos and murals by an international artist. The Siena Suite is a fully handicap accessible suite with direct access to the zero entry pool, enabling guests of all ages to easily enjoy the entire villa easily. On grounds putting and chipping greens provide guests with excellent opportunities to sharpen their short game before visiting the nearby Playa Grande Golf Course. These are only some of the many unique attributes of the villa!

Villa castellamonte is a great experience. The villa itself is spacious and open to the inviting climate. The layout makes you want to explore the entire property inside and out. We went in a group of 12 and had plenty of room. The open spaces are great for hanging out with everyone together and yet there are enough areas (pool table, bar, living room, terrace,) that we all found ourselves doing something different. The pool is great; deep end, zero entry and volleyball net basically make it 3 pools in one. The private beach is great for exploring and hiking around. The staff is friendly, helpful and energetic and the food was great. It was an unforgettable winter getaway for my wife and I with great friends. Can’t wait to return!
Thank you for a lovely review and your insights on how groups can find their ‘own spot’ within the villa. We designed it with large groups (or family) in mind and are delighted when guests see it as we do. We look forward to your return and, please, tell family and friends...referrals are awesome!
Staff is fabulous. Property is beautiful but needing a little sprucing up. All bedrooms are great except the one off the kitchen is down a notch or two. Food was plentiful and I would give it a B to B+ as far as quality. Prep and presentation was great. Service was off the charts great. Pool area was very nice but could have used a bit more seating. Grounds are beautiful. Setting is beautiful. Long ride to airport.
We had 16 and we had a fabulous time. Jason seems like a very nice guy but he clearly married way over his head when he got Michelle. She is the best!
Thank you, Randy, for the review. I appreciate it sincerely. I'm sure Michelle told you of our plans to add new furnishings and update some fabrics. It's always fun trying to keep up with the changing trends.
I also agree 100% that Michelle is way out of my league...she just has bad taste in men (which is how she got me). We look forward to helping you plan your return trip!
Also, please remember, referrals to family and friends are always welcomed and they get to enjoy a sweet discount when they mention you!
Love this place!
The staff are truly the centerpiece of this beautiful vacation villa. Caring, considerate and not at all obtrusive. You only need to think, “I wish I had...” and it materializes.
The cuisine is perfection and fits everyone’s needs. Just let the private chef or concierge know what you want (or don’t want). It couldn’t be better.
I brought a group of 19 people to the property for four nights. The property itself was better than expected and was more than able to sleep a large group comfortably. Everyone in my group had nothing but good things to say about property. I think one of the best parts of the property is that it really has everything you need from a recreation standpoint. My group took advantage of the pool, the ping pong table, the shuffleboard table, the pool table, the beach and the basketball court. We also had a massage services brought into the house for two days. We even were able to see whales on the ocean right from our pool.
The property is staffed with a large number of people to keep things humming. I think there were 3 hosts, 2 chefs, and a variety of cleaning staff, gardeners, security, etc. You will mostly interact with the hosts on a day to day basis and they were amazing. We kept them late a few nights and they were happy to accommodate us.
The meal style was probably a bit more formal than I expected with scheduled group sittings three times a day as oppose to casual eating. Not a problem for my group as we quick acclimated. The meals themselves were top notch and met all my expectations.
Michelle was wonderful to work with to setup all the logistics and the excursions. We ended up doing a whale watching tour in Samana Bay which was amazing. We saw whales surface and breach multiple times and had a great time. The tour company provided door-to-door service right from the house which was great.
All said and told this place was great value and exceeded expectations for me and my group. Thanks so much for a great time!
Thank you, Stephen, for visiting with us on such a memorable date. The staff all tell me to say “hola” and thank you for your generous gratuity. Anytime you would like to return, please believe ‘mi casa es su casa!’
Absolutely beautiful and friendly
Our group had such an amazing time. We were treated to every comfort and service you could imagine-the property and staff are truly magnificent. We decided on the full meal plan and wow- it’s not only fine dining restaurant quality but more than enough- you won’t go hungry! The pool area is so expansive so there is plenty of room for privacy when wanted and there are several game venues, pool-ping pong-shuffleboard to enjoy when a break from the sun is needed. Definitely hike down the cliff pathway to the beach, you will be treated to the feeling of being shipwrecked on a deserted island.As suggested we used cab services vs renting - this is definitely the right choice when visiting. We can’t wait to return! Thank you all !!!
Thank you for the wonderful review, we are delighted our guests enjoy the villa as much as we do. Please do plan to come again soon...we loved having you!
Wonderful Family Trip
This is the perfect property if you have a large group. My family of 21 spent a week over the Thanksgiving holiday at this wonderful home. Michelle did an outstanding job of handling all our reservations for day trips as well as setting up the many Manicures, pedicures and massages. The staff did a great job of waiting on this large group by providing three meals a day and a mid day snack as well as making many beverages from the bar. The food was fantastic and they went out of their way to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal and a Birthday cake for one of our guest. All in all, the perfect place for our family.
Thank you Laurence! It was great to have you there and I hope you consider the Dominican Republic, and Villa Castellamonte, for your future vacations.
