Born 1947 in Hampshire England Originally lived in the Dominican Republic in the early 70s and worked there for many years in the Bank of Nova Scotia and Royal bank of Canada Designed and built my lovely villa 5 years ago...took 18 months to build. My criteria for building was to have the very best villa in Cofresi and I think I succeeded in this. I rent it out now all year as I live in a smaller house quite nearby I am one of the few owners that lives here year round and I would never want to live any where else. This means I am always available if you need me.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Owner chose Puerto Plata
Playa Cofresi has everything going for it and still retains its Dominican charm unlike some places like Sosua and Cabarete We have the elevations here which no only give incredible views but we nearly always have cooler sea breezes which make the climate absolutely perfect. Unlike most of the villas on the beach we are not overlooked nor have any adjoining neighbours. We have facilities that other villas don't have.

Heavenly vacation villa
Let me start by saying thank you for the best vacation ever. My entire family could not stop talking about the great time we spent at your villa. Starting from the pick up at the airport to the great welcoming by all the staff who just brighten our every day we spent there. Santa, Dioma, Kira and Carlos are the most delightful people you can hope to have to take care of you. We were treated with freshly made piña coladas as we received a tour of the villa. Each and every corner of the home is jaw dropping. Every turn you make you find yourself enjoying the amazing views of the ocean from all the rooms as the home is situated in an amazing area of land. Everything about the home exceeded our expectations as the pictures on the site do not do justice. As I mentioned before the staff is constantly catering to your needs, starting with fresh coffee every morning to the wonderful and satisfying breakfasts and other meals that Dioma and Kira set out for us each day. Carlos was always wonderful as he ran all over the area to shop for My family’s needs always with great smile. Santa was great as she arranged massages and hair sessions for the ladies in my family and they loved it as it was so much personal having them in the home. The daily piña coladas by the pool we’re the highlight of my daughter’s day. The amazing relaxing moments we spent by the pool and outside on the balcony having coffee, meals and the occasional domino game reminded all of us of how great it is to enjoy family. We were able to receive the best fireworks show at night as we gazed at the stars from the beach front resort that is viewed from the home which was the best part for my son stay at this villa. We have been to several places through the homeaway group in the past years but this villa has topped our list. Thank you Glen for sharing your home and please thank your staff dearly. We will surely come back again to the Bentley Villa!
The Tejeda Family
We had a family of 12 to stay in the villa. Our experience was amazing! The staff was friendly and wonderful! We planned a few excursions with their help and got to see some local spots. We felt safe the entire time and look foward to re-booking this again! Awesome vacation! Beautiful house! Lovely staff!
We brought 4 parents and 6 young adults to stay at Bentley Villa for a week long friend reunion. We've traveled a lot but have never done anything like this. The house was amazing with plenty of rooms for all of the couples and singles to have their own room. Having the staff there was the best part. They were friendly and helped us with whatever we needed. Everymorning started with hot coffee on the balcony with the amazing view and an amazing breakfast to follow. Santa arranged everything for us and we came back to a fabulous meal (ask for the Seabass Dominican Style!!) and spotless home. In all, the vacation was flawless from airport pick-up to drop off. So glad we did this and made wonderful memories. Thank you!
awesome stay and great staff
Words cannot to do justice in describing what a fabulous place and stay that we had. There is so much space that one can either be with the group or go off to be by themselves. The wrap-around and covered upper patio is very spacious and offers a cool breeze and fantastic view of the ocean and city below. The wrap around pool is very large and offers a scenic view with many lounge chairs to sun tan or visit. The bedrooms are large with their own bathroom and all are air conditioned. The patio deck was so nice, that we seldom left there and the day sped by just relaxing, enjoying a drink and snack.The best part of our stay was the great staff and chef that they had to make our stay unforgettable, We though we would go out to eat on the economy, but after eating the arrival meal that was prepared for us, we ate breakfast and supper at the villa and there was so much food, we didnt need a third meal. You plan the menu according to your taste. if you needed something from the store they would get it for you and for any activities you wanted to go on, they would arrange the transportation and get you the best price. The room cleaning daily was top notch and if anything was not working,Carlos would be right there to fix it. Santa who directs the staff, comes everyday and makes sure all is running smoothly. I woulds rate the staff as 5+ out of 5. The owner Glenn stopped by and is truly interested in how are stay was going and if there was anything that would make it better or if we had any issues. A true professional who was easy to work with when inquiring about the Villa and the reservation process. He responded quickly whenever contacted by email. The total number that were on this trip was nine and we are truly eager. to come again in the future. We all left refreshed,energized and sad that the week went by so fast. So we have no regrets about this fabulous place and the great staff that worked well together. The staff at the beginning said that they would treat us as family and that this was our home and we truly felt as if we were part of their family when we left. Relax,enjoy and rest assured, this is a great place to stay.
Thank you for your lovely review of the villa. We hope we have the pleasure of your return visit in the near future. My staff rated you the highest 10 out of 10. ...very unusual
Worth every penny!
We left Bentley villa today after 10 days with 18 family members and could not be more pleased. The views alone are hard to believe, but the smiling staff is the icicing on the cake. Santa and her staff ensure that all needs are met. The food from the kitchen was plentiful and delicious. We did not eat out once! The home is thoroughly cleaned every day. To top it off, Carlos empties, cleans and refills the hot tub every day, in addition to running errands for us.
Our whole family agreed it was a perfect vacation.
We would give it 11 stars if we could!!!
