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 Cofresi

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!

View is magnificent. Amenities are not in working order. Very remote. Need car.

The description states 5 bedrooms and 7 baths. Let’s start with the bathrooms. I only ever found 6. There were 4 ensuites, 1 interior hall bath and a bath outside by the pool. The interior hall bath’s toilet did not work unless you removed the tank lid and fiddled the float. The caretaker ‘fixed’ it our first night and it would only work thereafter with aforementioned manual intervention. The ensuite to the bunk room toilet backed sewage into the bathroom and was locked for no use until end of stay. I guess if you didn’t have an ensuite you were supposed to go outside in the middle of the night to use a toilet. Now for the hot water: on day 2 of 10 the hot water stopped working. The caretaker fiddled with it and after a while got it working. Unfortunately we had a Christmas Eve party to get to and were subjected to cold showers. On day 4 the hot water failed again. The caretaker was on vacation so outside help was engaged. No hot water for day 4 and 5 until we engaged a plumber through family connections and paid him ourselves. By day 5, the first night of a full guest list, without knowing the longevity of the hot water fix, we moved into a hotel for the duration of our stay. The house is definitely not worth the view! We were in town to celebrate our son’s wedding. The house situation was a big negative. Oh, and the living room roof leaks too! Bad experience all the way around except for Christina, the housekeeper, who was a treasure (Google translator is a must) and tried very hard to coordinate fixes. Look elsewhere is my advice.

must visit and stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the best experience , the house is clean , lots of space , staff are very awesome and welcoming , it's a great place to go to with friends or family , I would defiantly be returning here. The beach is about a 5 minute walk, the pool is very clean . It's such a relaxing environment, the master bedroom is my favorite , although all rooms are beautiful. I recommend this villa to everyone , you won't regret it :) ❤️

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.

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.
