When staying at La Villa Da Silva you are overwhelmed. It is a beautiful house with a beautiful location, more importantly it is a house that you adopt as your own. You respect everything and everyone that makes your stay enjoyable. Much thanks to Jay and Ana, you have shared a wonderful experience with myself and my wife by allowing us to stay here. We look forward to staying here again.
Fabulous Vacation House
We just stayed for 10 nites at Ana’s house and had a great time.There were three couples, all had their own bedrooms with bathrooms, Plenty of room. The house has been renovated and the bathrooms are really modern and nice.The master suite has two balcony’s that face the ocean, great for morning coffee or cocktail hour.
The outdoor area is beautiful with tropical plants and a great pool with a waterfall.There is also an built in grill we used a few times to make steaks.
We had a little trouble the first nite finding the house ,but Ana was patiently on the phone giving us directions right up to pulling into the house.The only negative was the water pressure in the showers needs to be turned up, all in all a great vacation house
Beautiful Home, Private and Spacious
Where do I start- First want to thank Jay and Ana for letting us stay in your home it was absolutely a great place to stay and one of the best houses we have rented in the last 10 years since we started renting houses in different parts of the world. (The house has pretty much everything you will need and more) The house is very safe with lots of locks and gates NOT that you need it but for those who get worried. Bedrooms were great w/ A/C if you need it which we didn't to much. Met a lot of neighbors are very nice people. We had a lot of fun hanging out at the house and exploring the island, unfortunately we didn't get to explore Costambar a lot before we left which there is a lot to do right in the gated community with lots of restaurants and bars along with beach that you can go to. We made it to the beach bar for burgers one night and the pizza place on the corner across from Ricks Cafe which was great also.
We rented a car to explore the island- you need nerves of steel to drive in Dominican -FYI. We don't worry about things like that, but just letting the people who are thinking about renting a car, the traffic is crazy and motorcycles everywhere. Funny thing we didn't get in an accident driving, but our rental car got hit parked at the beach by big truck. Take the insurance it will make you feel better and it cost us 200.00 which was our deductible- the hardest thing if you get in an accident is you need the police report ( little pain in the butt more because we didn't speach the language).
Jenny grocery store is located in Costambar and they exchange money if you need to and give you a fair rate of exchange. ( Buy Presidenta beer by the case cheaper) Make sure you have cash- as we found out that a lot of the places we went don't use credit card. Jenny's, gas stations, Jumbo Grocery store (big store) some restaurants take credit card. All the excursions we went on did not but we also drove to the excursions- way cheaper.
We went to Sosua Beach -good but Costambar beach just as good - less people -closer
Money Jungle Zip line ( 50 per person) - drove there not easy to get to but fun trip good zip lines 7 stations- baby monkeys
Waterfalls - we did the 12 which was totally great and had lunch for 20.00
Cable car was good also.
We did find a new place downtown area of Puerto Plata- Bocaditos bakery and cafe
Awesome place to eat.
Rancho Los Cacaos great Razor trip into the mountain and villages 55.00 per person
Beautiful property!! Owner and property managers were very responsive when any issues occurred.
I had a great time at this beautiful property. Will definitely rent again when I visit Costambar. As a matter of fact can’t wait to rent this property again!
The house itself is quite nice. Full kitchen including gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, sink, full complement of silverware, dishware, and utensils. Very spacious master bedroom with two balconies, master bathroom with beautiful glass shower. Downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice as well. All bedrooms have air conditioning units and fans. Roomy living room area with dining table, plenty of seating, and television. There is also a laundry area with clothes washer. Lots of windows and fans throughout the residence to help with air circulation. The property is well maintained and secured. A larger yard area would be nice, but the pool more than makes up for it. There is a waterfall adornment at the deep end of the pool with a small platform for jumping or diving.
The neighborhood is a nice quiet reprieve from the noise and activity you'll encounter in the city. The gated community includes a picturesque private beach with a few restaurants and souvenir shops, a pharmacy, a small food market with ATM, and a number of restaurants.
If you like Italian food I highly recommend the Pizzeria SoleMio restaurant. Everything is within reasonable walking distance, but as the house is towards the outskirts of the neighborhood the walking will add up over time. I would recommend renting a bicycle if you intend to do a lot of local exploring.
Without a doubt the best feature of this property is the people. In particular, Alba was a great host. She gave us a lovely tour of the city one day and took us on a nice dinner outing the night before we left. Kiki took care of any maintenance needs, of which there were a few as electrical problems are common in the country. They work with a local driver named Johnny who can take you wherever you want to go; he was super convenient and invaluable. Everyone was great, the property is nice, and the locale is simply beautiful. I look forward to coming back sometime.
We were thrilled with our week long stay at this house in May 2017! The house, pool, and grounds are gorgeous! We wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again. :)
The house is well equipped with towels and kitchen items. The 3 bedrooms are large with beautifully renovated bathrooms. The air conditioners in the bedrooms worked well.
The house is in a good location in the gated beachfront community of Costambar which is 3 miles away from Puerto Plata and under a hour from Playa Dorada, Sosua, and Cabarete.
We spent a lot of time in the beautiful pool. When not in the pool we often sat in one of the covered areas (all of which have ceiling fans). The views of the ocean from the larger upstairs balcony were very nice. We also spent some time walking around Costambar. You can walk to the beach where besides a nice beach there are a few bar/restaurants right in the sand. Within walking distance you will also find a small grocery store, a pharmacy, and also other restaurants. There is a 9 hole golf course within walking distance as well.
If you want to do some day trips you can rent a car at the grocery store or you can get a taxi at the taxi stand within walking distance from the house.
