Why Horst & Nancy Fasel chose Vivero

Casa de Campo is one of the world's leading vacation and residential resorts. It offers prime city facilities but within wide, beautiful, tropical nature. Great life style in a safe and comfortable environment. Golfing is superb. The reef-secured ocean beach is great for safe swimming. Bicycle and walking trails along the ocean or horse back trips up on the hills make for unforgettable sunset rides. At the hotel, the marina or Altos de Chavon village, the restaurants, bars, discos, cinemas, shops provide entertainment which caters to all tastes, young or old.

What makes this villa unique

Villa is centrally located between hotel reception, beach and marina. Being a weekend retreat for the owners, it is comfortably and nicely furnished and well taken care of.

Good value for money.

Completely satisfying. Great!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of three had a wonderful time during our five days stay. The villa and the surrounding property are great, accurate to the description. The villa is nicely decorated with '"tropical chic", the equipment is functional and reliably working, thanks to the hosts' friendly efficiency. The location is "central", within similar distances to beach or hotel or marina. House cleaning and cooking service were excellent. All definitely to be recommended. The resort offers a unique variety of attractions, amenities and services, all within a secure environment of high class - but also sporty - life style.

We stayed over the Easter holidays with our 1 ½ year old son and had a wonderful time.

The villa and the environment are beautiful, very clean and well maintained , just as it had been described and as we had it expected. We can recommend it 100% and for sure we will come again.

Beautiful, comfortable, relaxing villa!

  • 5 of 5

La Caribelle was a fantastic vacation for our family, and I would highly recommend it for many reasons.

The property is wonderful. Horst and Nancy have done a beautiful job of decorating with much local art and furniture. The photos that he has posted on the VRBO page are completely accurate. It is impeccably clean and orderly. The kitchen is well-equipped. The bedrooms are large, and each has its own bathroom and shower. One note is that the hot water doesn't last long, so you need to be quick if you don't like cold water. I suspect that this is pretty much the norm for much of the DR, however. There is an expansive backyard with beautiful gardening. The pool is very refreshing following a day at the beach and it's kept clean. What appears to be a hot tub in the photos is not heated; it's the same temperature as the main pool. The sitting area under the outdoor veranda was our very favorite spot. We loved just sitting out there enjoying the warm weather, day or evening.

The housekeeper and cook, Eni, was very pleasant and a good cook. We shopped at the Marina mercado with her the first day to stock the kitchen. Most days she prepared breakfast and lunch for us. One day we asked her to prepare a shrimp stew at Horst's recommendation for us to reheat for dinner - it was delicious. Eni doesn't speak English, so you can use Google Translate if you don't speak Spanish (there is wifi in most areas of the house). Our son has had 6 or 7 years of Spanish and he and Eni conversed very well. She arrives around 8am and leaves mid-afternoon and she is very discreet and not intrusive at all.

Horst and Nancy are wonderful, friendly hosts and were very helpful to us in planning for our stay and while we were there. He can make all kinds of recommendations for local restaurants and attractions. Horst speaks German, English, and Spanish and perhaps more that I'm not aware of. ;-)

The Casa de Campo resort is beautiful, well-maintained, and safe. There are plenty of amenities within the resort to occupy you for a week or two stay. We recommend the resort beach, called Playa Minitas. We took a boat over and spent the day on Catalina Island, which was a beautiful beach as well. We also went off the resort to Bayahibe beach, but we didn't enjoy that very much - there were a lot of locals blasting music from tinny Bluetooth speakers all around us. Hard to relax.

In summary, we HIGHLY recommend making this property your choice in the DR!

Your commendation pleases but also stimulates for more and continuous improvements in the future. You, Evelyn and Keith have been great guests, to be recommended to anyone. Hopefully we will see you again sometime. Warm greetings from the Caribbean to Wisconsin! Horst and Nancy Fasel

La Caribelle was a great rental for our family of five.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a very relaxing vacation at La Caribelle in Casa de Campo. The location was excellent. The home is well maintained inside and out. Even though the pool and hot tub weren't heated, the weather was warm enough that we enjoyed cooling off in both every day. Eni, the housekeeper, made wonderful meals for breakfast and lunch per our requests and was very patient with my limited Spanish. We were very comfortable in the daytime with the windows open, but chose to use the air conditioning units in each bedroom at night. We enjoyed the amenities of Casa de Campo. I would recommend taking a boat out to Catalina Island. In the future we hope to visit again to escape the winter temperatures of where we live.

Renting a car was a great decision. It was much easier to get to the market or Altos de Chavon. All of the people that we encountered were very friendly.

Sweet and Sour..

  • 2 of 5

Casa de Campo is a beautiful place,but this house has not air conditioned in halls,kitchen or dining room and in this summer season its imposible to enjoy the house.Not even fans has this house.....Also,it lacks of a TV set in the living rooms so we could watch the Olimpics Game toguether....

Owner's Response: Our villa, with a budget rate, and as specified on our web page, offers only air conditioning in the bedrooms, like most of the villas in our neighborhood, which supposedly had been designed for tropical (outdoor) life. Full-home a/c is available in many of the luxury villas, which rent at muuuch higher rates. The statement that there are no fans must be based on an oversight, as there are two large and effektive ceiling fans in the living room. If we would have received a request (like others we complyed with), we would have gladly supplied an additional TV set for the living room area.

Lovely villa, beautiful furnished, super service

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa de Campo and "La Caribelle"exceeded all our expectations. The villa provided close access to all resort facilities, is comfortly and delicately furnished, has friendly and attentive maid and owner service.

We were very content, loved our stay and will return next year with more friends.
