Very good experience!!
The house is beautiful, every thing is in place, Rosita attention´s: without words...... Exceptional
Seven of us just returned from our girlfriend reunion in Punta Cana. Villa Deste was the perfect backdrop for five days of total relaxation and catching up . The house was stunning, impeccable and Rosita & Reina's attention to detail was so appreciated. Reina accompanied us to do grocery shopping and the meals she prepared (3 x day) were delicious & healthy, topping any 5-star restaurant! Giovanni (the owner) was instrumental in communicating with me for the almost one year of preparation for this trip, fine tuning the last minute details and arranging all the ground transportation for all of us arriving and departing at different times, to recommending and arranging lunch and dinner reservations. We even had a masseuse come to the villa for one hour massages for all of us. We felt very pampered, safe in this beautiful area of Punta Cana making it a trip for the memory book! You cannot go wrong in booking Villa Deste.
From our reserving to arrival Giovanni was wonderful to answer all of our questions and accomodatons
Beautiful home with incredible staff. Raina and Rossetta were fabulous and super accommodating with our grocery shopping, meal preps and wonderful meals. We’ll be back!
Wonderful home in a perfect spot
My family and I have just returned from 10 days staying in this wonderful home and have nothing but positive things to say. Our group included 3 generations and the house design allows for everyone to be together or spread out and find a quiet space to read or nap. Over the years we have rented several homes through VRBO but we all agree this is our favorite.
The house is very well designed with each bedroom having a private bathroom and air conditioning should you want it. The house is sited in such a way the warm ocean breezes blow right through so sleeping with the windows open was our preference. It is beautifully furnished throughout with comfortable furniture, soft sheets, thick towels, and very comfortable beds (we slept in later and later each morning!). The outdoor spaces are also gorgeous and what you'd hope to find in a tropical setting---orchids everywhere, tropical plants, and lush, flowering bushes. We spent most of the vacation lounging by the pool, playing games on the patio, and enjoyed meals al fresco. Our housekeeper, Raina, was welcoming and lovely. She anticipated our every need from coffee in the morning to dry towels for the kids to cooking delicious rice dishes. We spoke very little Spanish but Raina suggested we use Google Translate which was a godsend for talking and getting to know her.
It's been said before but the location really is ideal. You can easily walk to the beach, golf course, or Punta Cana Beach Club. We used the golf carts to explore the resort, for example the Ecological Center where we swam in natural pools. We also had dinner twice at La Yola at the marina which is well worth a visit (great cocktails!).
Finally, Giovanni is very welcoming and throughout our stay was quick to respond any time I reached out to him. We even had the pleasure of seeing him at the airport on the day of our departure and he made us feel like friends, not simply people who had rented his home. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in his home again.
Wonderful house in a great location
This was our first visit to Punta Cana, and we had a wonderful vacation. The house has a fabulous layout which gave everyone their own "space." The furnishings are comfortable and casual, without being over-the-top. We didn't realize it before we got there but the house is within walking distance to the beach/golf club. At the club there is a great beach, large pool, two restaurants, and full golf facilities. Our live-in housekeeper made us breakfast every morning, kept everything in order, and helped us arrange transportation when we wanted to go out of the resort for shopping or dinner. She was awesome, although it was a good thing that my kids all speak Spanish, because she didn't speak English. Thank heavens for Google translator! I would highly recommend this home for a family looking for a relaxing beach/golf vacation. The only concern is that the house comfortably sleeps 8 but the golf cart maxes out at four. If you needed it perhaps Giovanni could arrange for a second golf cart.
Great villa with a perfect location
We had an excellent stay with 2 families. The villa is very nice. It is well furnished and maintained. The owner is easily reachable and very helpful. The location is excellent, just a short golf cart ride to the beach, large pool and golf course. The pool is a nice size and there are lots of areas to relax in the backyard.
The housekeeper and hired cook made our trip much more relaxing. Transportation was arranged by the owner.
The only drawback to the house is that the bedrooms are all accessible through an open courtyard, and therefore difficult if you are traveling with small children.
Overall a great place to stay!
