Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, sleeps 8

Better wear your swimsuit on the flight, because as soon as the plane touches down at Punta Cana airport, you’re just a 15-minute drive from your villa away from home in the Dominican Republic. Poolside drinks are waiting!

Pool, Palms and Privacy

This 7,000 square foot home, set within a 3/4-acre garden paradise, is yours to enjoy in total privacy.

Slip off your sandals and enjoy a refreshing swim under the palms in Villa Harmony’s crystal-blue pool. Pour yourself a glass of something bubbly, press play on your favorite playlist (piped in through the indoor/outdoor stereo system) and relax into your vacation. This is how we do in the Islands.

Friends and Family

Whether you’re on a girlfriend getaway or a family vacation with the kids, Villa Harmony’s three spacious bedrooms can accommodate up to 8 of your favorite people.

Each room features its own en-suite bath, A/C and flat-screen TV with satellite. Your guests can drop their luggage in either the double queen room or the bunk room, which has a twin bunk up top, full mattress below and a separate king-sized bed -- perfect for kids and grownups alike.

Claim the master suite for yourself, with its cushy queen bed and bathroom complete with shower, bidet and his-and-hers sinks. A siesta-ready hammock awaits on the adjacent patio.

Indoor/Outdoor Living

When you’re not floating in the pool, you could be dozing in the oh-so-comfy cabana bed or playing billiards or foosball in the A/C-cooled game room (there’s also paddle tennis and a half basketball court on the property). The palm-lined lawn has plenty of space for the pups to roam (yes, Villa Harmony is pet-friendly!)

As the day mellows into a lusciously warm, breezy Dominican evening, gather in the 16-person outdoor dining room for an unforgettable family meal (prepared by you or, if you like, by Villa Harmony staff) and after-dinner drinks around the oversized coffee table.

From the Fairway to the Shore, Punta Cana At Your Doorstep

Only 15 minutes from the airport, Villa Harmony is located a short drive from some the best beaches in the DR.

Within just a few mile radius you’ll find 10 top-tier golf courses, including one just five minutes from the house. Or use the villa as a base to explore the island’s historic side, with outings to sites like Santo Domingo, the oldest city in the Americas, about two hours away.

Punta Cana is a place of many charms, and Villa Harmony puts you in the middle of it all. But with so many different ways to relax within the villa’s garden walls, you might just wind up staying in.

About Jenny Almeida

My husband and I did this house with all heart!

By personal reasons we moved to Spain, Alfonso is Spanish I'm Dominican(Alfonso lived in Dominican Republic for more than 20 years, we wanted to make a house to keep our bond with Dominican Republic alive and allow us to enjoy both of our families. So this became our second home.

Alfonso has two sons, when we were home the children was young so we did our best to make this house lovely for them: a stunning pool, paddle court, half-court basketball, billiards, foosball table.

When we returned to live to Punta Cana, was different, stop novelty, all who wanted to come had come... and we lived here!!! and the house is not longer filled as when we came so the house was too big for us. then we wanted to give the opportunity to anyone who wanted to enjoy with family or friends. Our best moments with friends have been in this house! When want to enjoy our family, or remember fantastic moments with our friends, we come back here!!!!

Jenny Almeida purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jenny Almeida chose Bávaro

Pet-friendly

Almost 3000 square meters, very large open spaces, huge garden (whole house surrounded by a perimeter wall and located in a residential development of 4 Villas.

Total privacy

Just 15 minutes from the airport

10-15 minutes to all the beaches in the area

What makes this villa unique

Spend time with family or friends you won't like to move from it but if you do go everywhere in terms of ten minutes away, beaches, restaurants, night clubs, excursions, golf courses (5 in a 10 radio milles ) etc. Just aside of the main tourist boulevard and minutes from almost everything to see and to do.

Best Villa in Bávaro

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I just got back from an amazing vacation from the DR in one of the most amazing villa.I can't begin to list how beautiful this Villa is and how wonderful there staff and attentive the home owner was.Our stay in Villa Harmony will be an unfergatable one. The pictures are exactly what the property looks like. Angela the housekeeper was very organized and always making sure we where comftorble just like at home.she is also a great cook by the way!and the owner was just so informative and such a sweetheart.I almost would not like no one to find this gem. But if u ever decide to stay in a local great location Villa then this would be it!

Wonderful host and housekeeper, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

While this was not our best vacation due to illness (two of us brought cold/flu from the States), we all agreed that the property is lovely and that Angela (housekeeper) is fantastic. Rooms are spacious and the open living area is so relaxing -it really does feel like your own private resort. Although there is a cement factory nearby we were never bothered by noise. We had Angela cook breakfast and dinner for us daily and it was truly special. She went out of her way to conform to the tastes of some of our picky eaters while still providing us with delicious Dominican food -her tostones and avocado salad are a real standout. She also accompanied my husband to the grocery store to help select items for the menu and cooked eggs to each person's personal taste for breakfast. Jenny (owner) is also a gem. She responded to multiple messages prior to arrival and did our initial grocery run to stock the kitchen before we arrived. While there she checked in on us daily and helped arrange for massages at the property (highly recommended, whether you prefer Swedish or deep tissue!) in addition to recommendations on beaches, restaurants, and where to buy fresh fish for dinner. As beautiful as the property is, Jenny and Angela are the people who put this place over the top.

I agree with other reviewers who recommend renting a car at some point during your stay -while Simon's car service was prompt, taxis in the area are expensive and roads around Punta Cana are well maintained. Make sure you rent with a reputable company (Hertz, etc) and get a receipt at time of rental. We did book a few excursions with tour companies (we enjoyed the semi-private catamaran tour in Bavaro through Hispaniola and scuba diving near Soana island); about half were already familiar with the location of the house.

****PARADISE IN PUNTA CANA****

  • 5 of 5

My name is Derrick, and I had the pleasure of renting this "HUGE" Caribbean style villa for my birthday. (the weekend of March 4th) I have been to the Dominican Republic over 10 times and I can honestly say, this was my best trip! Jenny (Owner) was very, very nice and made sure we had a memorable time from start to finish. The house was like our own "private" resort and is laid out perfectly. Over 7000 sq feet with enough room to play "hide n seek" and never be found. Ha! Very comfortable rooms with separate bathrooms, huge pool, basketball court, tennis court, game room, and comfortable lounge areas all over the property.

Jenny made arrangements with our very liable Car Service (Simon) & our own personal Chef (Angela). We got to explore the town and get a fantastic taste of Dominican Style Cooking on a daily basis. The best part of all, it was all well within our last minute budget. The combination of privacy, relaxation, & superb customer service was definitely worth the trip. My friends and I are already looking for dates to go back this summer!

If I can sum my review up in two words, I would say..................SIMPLY AMMAZING!!! (SMILE)

Excellent property with great access to Bavaro/Punta Cana

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed our trip to Punta Cana where we stayed at this property for a little over a week. We found the property to be very accommodating, comfortable, and well-maintained. Jenny was a very responsive host at any time I tried to contact her. She welcomed us on the first day and was available via mobile the remainder of the trip. Angela lived on premise and she kept the home in great shape. We utilized her for several meals over the course of the week and I appreciated the good Dominican fare.

The location was very convenient to reach the Bavaro or Punta Cana areas. It sits in a little residential enclave of about 3 houses and we felt very secure as their were guards posted at the gates at all times. It sits between a local attraction and some commercial/industry but with the exception of some helicopter traffic (expect 2-3 fly-overs per day (never at night)) it was quiet and we felt we were in our own little world.

We utilized a driver (Simon) for the trip but I would recommend getting a car if you will be here a week. I would use Simon for first couple of days to get familiar with area but as I said it is very conveniently located so once you get the hang of it you should have no problem with your own car. Simon provided excellent rates and was always responsive and at our disposal. He provides a care-free option for transportation. He even made a special trip to the store when one of our guests had a night of travelers tummy and we needed some Gatorade to help with liquids.

I would suggest making your way to Bavaro, we enjoyed Omno as it was on the beach so we could go walking after a few drinks, Huracan Cafe was also very good for this. Juanillo Beach is nice but quite windy, Macao Beach was gorgeous and very sandy which was nice. We did a trip to Saona which was fun for a "booze cruise" trip but it was very crowded. If you don't want to be bunched with a lot of ppl, avoid this excursion. We did a day trip to Samana by air and that was certainly the highlight of the trip. I would definitely recommend this journey.

Overall, it was a very good trip and this property was a welcome destination and the end of each day. We spent many a night at the big table playing cards and talking the night away. Our pool and ping-pong tournaments were equally intense.

Enjoy your stay!

Incredible place, you won't have to leave the house

  • 5 of 5

Extremely easy to give this feed away. The house is incredibly beautiful and equipped exactly as described. Excellent area to relax and have a good time. Jenny (the host) is super accesible, sweet and welcoming. The housemaid Angela, is a sweatheart as well and an excellent cooker. The villa is huge and amazingly comfortable!! The pool and game place are in excellent conditions as well, making this house the perfect place for a fun get-away! For me and my friends it will be a go-to every time we hit Punta Cana! We had a delightful experience in this property. HIGH RECOMMENDED!!

It was a terrific experience!

  • 5 of 5

Great place if you want to have your own privacy instead of an all inclusive resort. From the start, Jenny, the owner arranged transportation to pick us up from the airport to overall villa accommodation, I would recommend to all who wish to be away from the crowded resort experience. Place was kept clean by Angela, the maid. Driver was phenomenal who took us everywhere we needed to go. Couldn't ask for more. Hope to visit again soon!
