About the property

La Vista Villa overlooking Playa Cofresi and Puerto Plata

Luxury amenities and an unforgettable view make La Vista a natural selection for your next holiday destination. Overlooking nearby Cofresi Beach, La Vista features five bedrooms, two kitchens, double carport, yard, two living rooms, jacuzzi, pools, multiple bathrooms, lavish balcony, and enough room for large parties, weddings, and other events. La Vista can fully accommodate 15 people, but packages are available for smaller groups.

On the first floor of La Vista is the service kitchen and a large bedroom with room for 4. The bedroom features a bunk bed, two separate double beds, and its own bathroom making this floor a great place for kids. Just outside the first floor is a wide double carport, green space, and Tiki hut with ample seating for outside meals or after dinner drinks.

The second floor is where La Vista earns its name. The defining feature of the entire house is here and that's the expansive balcony offering one of the best views in town. From the balcony you can look over the treetops to the nearby beach and the crystal blue ocean waters beyond. There's also a fantastic view of Pico Isabel de Torres in the distance and nearby Puerto Plata. Of course, you can enjoy all these sights from the comfort of a chaise lounge, as you relax in one of two balcony pools, or while using the barbeque grill.

Also on the second level is a fully furnished foyer, deluxe kitchen with everything you need to cook real Dominican cuisine, dining room seating for 10, and a large living room. Nearby are two ample suites with connecting bathrooms and jacuzzi access.

Just up the stairs from the second floor is another suite with double bed and bunk bed. A wood-paneled bathroom services this suite. Nearby on the third is the master suite with a private balcony, bathroom, jacuzzi, and great view. All the bedrooms include a compact refrigerator, air conditioning, safe,cable television, internet access, iron and ironing board.

In short, La Vista already has everything you want to get the vacation experience of a lifetime. All you need to do is get here.

About Jason and Dilenia Ingram

We're small business owners from Paducah, a Kentucky town on the south bank of the Ohio River, and Puerto Plata and Playa Cofresi is one of our favorite family vacation destinations. We love it so much we decided to buy a property to ensure we always have an oceanic home-away-from-home. Of course, business reality means we can't use La Vista every day of the year, which is why we make it available to others who want to enjoy everything this beautiful location has to offer.

La Vista really is a great place to relax. Every time we have to leave we always look forward to going back, and we know you'll feel the same way after you spend a little time here.

Jason and Dilenia Ingram purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jason and Dilenia Ingram chose Dominican Republic North Coast

It's simply an amazing location. Many properties offer ocean views, but at La Vista we got an ocean view and a terrific view of distant Pico Isabel de Torres and Puerto Plata. We love the surrounding community, the great restaurants, Ocean World adventure park, and, obviously, the beach! La Vista was also big enough to host our growing family, our extended family, and any friends we want to bring along for a great trip.

What makes this villa unique

One thing we really love about La Vista is that it's not in the heart of a 'tourist trap.' The villa strikes a real balance between privacy, a truly scenic vista, and the ability to immerse yourself in the local culture. There's also enough amenities in La Vista that it's like being at a miniature resort without having to worry about noisy neighbors in the next room or annoying guests poolside. We really love it and the moment we win the lottery, we'll be moving down full time!

Gorgeous Home with Amazing Staff

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that the house is as beautiful as the pictures. The view however you must see in person to understand. The house is very spacious and up to date. The pool was very clean and continually maintained. The staff of Christina, Ricardo and Michelle were awesome. They helped with everything. There English is limited but many of us spoke enough spanish. Christina is a great cook and her food rivaled everywhere we ate aND was better than most. The house is a bit hard to find if using Google maps bit it there! 3 out of the 5 bedrooms were 5 star quality. The other 2 were clean just nothing special. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back next year. Thanks Jason and Dilenia for the lovely home and staff your arranged.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a really good vacation with me and my friends. Home owners are incredibly attentive with responding to emails at any time of the day or night. Staff was very nice and pleasant. Food costs are not cheap about the same price as shopping for food in the United states. Food that was cooked was good and impressed me and my friends. Felt very safe because the community of villas is a bit hidden on this hill over looking the beach, and we had a security guard at night. The walk to the beach is about 5-10 minutes and it is pretty steep. We rented out scooters which was really fun and went up and down with ease. Pool water could of been warmer that would of been excellent. If your looking for villas with 5 or more bedrooms this area is probably best according to one of the cab drivers, apparently there aren't many villas near the beach with that many bedrooms. Cab rides are a bit expensive, if you plan on visiting Sousa would recommend a rental, otherwise make sure you bargain with everybody since you probably can get a better price when your down there. Overall I would recommend this villa and it is probably the best vacation me and my friends have ever been on, we had a blast.

Great views, good service, but less than perfect.

  • 4 of 5

First let me state that the home does indeed have perhaps the most exceptional views around. It is a lovely home , but a bit dated. The veranda was my absolute favorite part of the home. The staff were friendly and as helpful as possible! However, if you do not speak any Spanish, this is not the home for you. The staff has little to zero knowledge of the English language. There were issues with the home. For example, not enough ample lighting throughout (kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc.) Our Jacuzzi tub did not have a drain stopper that worked. Also in the master bath, there is no hot water for hand washing. The cold water leaked so badly from the supply line that it pooled all over the tile floor and I slipped! The staff was prompt in repairing this though. Also, the ceiling in the family room area leaked one evening during a rain and we had to find tubs , towels, and buckets to place under the leaks. Also during that rain, strangely enough, a leak sprung from of all places the towel bar in the master bath and pooled water on the tile floor right beside the commode. The locks were very difficult to turn. The safes did not have batteries, therefore you could not enter your own code. Lastly, there is obviously a leak in the pool, so the pool attendee would constantly have to add more water to it rendering it far too cold to even swim in and enjoy. I was the only person to even brave it one day for ten minutes!

Car: not necessary

Our luxurious villa sits right at the edge of San Felipe de Puerto Plata and is only a short car ride away from Puerto Plata's major international airport and only a little farther away is Cibao International Airport in Santiago. The villa is located in an upmarket area of Puerto Plata featuring modern amenities, fine dining, and great shopping opportunities all within walking distance. This is a wonderful vacation destination thanks to nearby attractions like the beautiful Cofresi Beach, Lifestyle Resort & Spa, Ocean World, marina, night club, casino, golf course, and more.
