About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Private Pool.

This is a 4,500 sq feet property with 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms. It has a fully equipped kitchen, high ceiling at living area, great terrace with a private pool and a gazebo with outdoor furniture and cabana lounge chairs to sun bathe. For fun and transportation it around the community, it includes two 4-passenger golf carts. The house is 2-3 miles from the beach (less than 10 minutes in golf cart).

This house is located close to the south gate as it is in the last section of the community. Nonetheless this should not worry you as crossing the road is seamless. The entire resort is interconnected via golf cart trails and going from one side to the other of the resort is easy and you will not even notice that you’re crossing.

Located within the Dorado Beach Resort, since it's a 2,000 acre natural reserve most of the communities are 1-3 miles away from the beach and Hotel. This being said, the entire resort is interconnected via golf cart trails, meaning that you can have easy access (walking or in golf cart) to the different communities and amenities within this Resort.

The Dorado Beach East community is private, gated, family friendly and offers a wide range of facilities that you can enjoy at no additional cost. The facilities include scenic pools, clay tennis courts, basketball and beach volleyball courts, a basic gym, a game room, a 3-par golf course that winds through the neighborhood, and an aviation themed park which has a custom water park and sand park.

Dorado Beach Resort amenities are exclusive for Club Members and are only accessible with the purchase of a temporary membership. Dorado Beach Resort’s temporary Weekly membership is available for a weekly fee of $980 (plus tax). The membership includes 4 IDs for you and your family; additional IDs may be purchased at a fee of $160 each, for up to a maximum of 10 per weekly rental. Children under 6 are free of charge.

The temporary weekly membership grants you access to the following Dorado Beach Resort amenities, which include access to: Dorado Beach Golf Courses, Encanto Beach Club and Restaurant, Barlovento Beach Bar and Grill, GoodWinds Water Sports, The Watermill Water Park (open only on weekends and holidays), Tennis Center and the Fitness & Wellness Center located at the Plantation Village.

Club activities through the Resort require reservations and additional charges may apply. Golf Tee times require advanced reservations; cart & green fees apply. If you are interested, Luxury Rentals International will assist you with the process of acquiring it. Please note that we are required to process the application 14 days prior to check-in.

Very confortable

  • 5 of 5

I gave a 5 star instead of 4 because overall it met all my families needs. There a couple minor things I like to point out. One of the large doors to patio was very,very hard to open and the dryer took awhile to dry cloth. Both issues were not enough to lower rating.

The pool was fantastic and the golf carts were definetly a must and both worked perfectly.

If you have a need for 5 bedrooms, do not pass up this villa.

We did not get the extend access to the resort but all the things included were fantastic, we were traveling the island, so we didn't need access to the extra resort items, if you plan to never leave the resort, then you may want to buy. We were 3 family's 6 adults for children and there was more than enough room for everyone. I hope this was helpful.

Wonderful villa

  • 4 of 5

Villa Serena was beautiful and well equipped. The bedrooms were spacious and had their own baths. The common living areas were large and comfortable as well as the outside living area next to the pool. We had a party of nine and never felt tight on space. The kitchen is well equipped as well which made meals easy. The two golf carts are a great feature for getting around the resort. It is definitely worth the resort membership for the week for use of the fitness center, water park, Encanto Beach Club and reduced golf rates.

Had an amazing Time

  • 4 of 5

When we walked into the home it was picture perfect; it was just as described on the website.

We were greeted by Mara who was in charge of the home and she was great and very friendly. Told us everything we needed to know.

It was a wonderful area with plenty to do nearby as well and the ground were maintained well.

House we give a A+++++++++

The Pool was great always cleaned A+++++++++

The Kitchen was nice

They had apple TV in all the rooms

We only had a few issues:

1) They provided no extra linens- It was ten people who stood at the house and some of us were missing towels- (I think a linen closet with extra linens should be provided- every other home we have stayed at provides that for us)

2) One of the rooms had a leak when it rained- which happened to be my room and in my room the vent was a bit off the wall in the bathroom

3) One of the bedrooms didn't have a dresser to put clothes in

4) The lounge chairs need to be replaced- some look like they have been fixed or repaired and they are not sturdy.

4) The Wifi was not that strong but it worked for the most part. It was ten of us so we were all on at the same time.
