Charlie Decker, Owner purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Charlie Decker, Owner chose Los Lagos
Los Lagos 19 is my 2nd villa in Casa de Campo. I purchased my first in 2004 so I have 12 years of experince hosting guests in Casa de Campo. I couldn't resist purchasing Los Lagos 19 after noticing everyone who visited, on entering exclaimed "Wow!!" when they say the interior of the villa and the breathtaking panoramic view It is also a great location. A 5 minute walk to the beach, 5 minutes by golf cart to the Marina.
What makes this Villa unique
"I play a lot of tennis, and golf and enjoy visiting nearby islands like Saona and Catalina for snorkeling and lunches on the beach or at sea. I travel around the country extensively in conjunction with my foundation. The Dominican Republic is a large and beautiful country, and the people in the campo and small towns are expecially friendly and welcoming. I have discovered and enjoy it's wonderful culture and history. And the starting point are the friendly always smiling Dominican people.’

Wonderful stay, wonderful house
Good location & great staff
This was our first visit to Los Lagos 19 and we will definitely come again. Everything worked smoothly (the internet is reliable, the golf carts run, the food is excellent). The owner and his staff went out of their way to assist with last minute requests. We (4 adults and 5 teenagers) had a wonderful time!

Gorgeous house in the heart of Casa de Campo
From the beginning of our inquiries of homes in Casa de Campo, Charles was always eager to help and answer any questions we had. He helped us book our transfer from the airport to the house. The moment we drove up to the house you are instantly overcome with how beautiful the home truly is. The staff at Los Lagos 19 were amazing in their own right. They helped us with groceries and preparing meals. They keep the house and pools in tip top shape and we’re always more than willing to help us with anything we needed. I wish I could give a higher grade to how wonderful our experience was. Highly recommend and will be visiting again very soon.
Thank you so much for your generous comments.
Your friendly and courteous spirit with the staff (and me) inspires us all. (And I enjoyed having the opportunity to meet you)
All will be thrilled with you kind words
We look forward to your return
Thank you again
Wonderful Family vacation
Our family enjoyed this beautiful Villa and everything that Casa De Campo had to offer! The Villa is centrally located and the golf carts get you everywhere you need to go; don't miss Altos de Chavon! The staff, Isabelle, hector, and Carlo were delightful and easy to interact with. Charlie made the logistics of getting there very easy and once on-site Sardis explained everything we needed to know. Sardis treated us to a special afternoon at the orphanage Nino de Cristo, a wonderful group of girls!! We will definitely be returning!!
Hi Suzanne-Thank you so much for this generous review. Sardis and our staff enjoyed making sure you enjoyed Los Lago 19 and Casa de Campo to the fullest. And I am pleased your ended your Los Lagos 19 vacation with a visit to the orphanage Niños de Cristo. Those children are precious. 14 years ago I started a foundation -Charles Decker Foundation-to support the orphanage and 3 others in the DR. 10% of my Los Lagos 19 rental revenue goes to the foundation and orphanages. I am sure they loved your visit.! We all look forward to your return!
Best family vacation over the holidays!
Our family spent 6 glorious days at Los Lagos 19 between over the Christmas-New Years holiday. We were joined by another family and all kids and adults couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The home is open, spacious, and inviting. We were a group of 10 and we had plenty of room and enjoyed the many entertaining spaces. The outdoor pool and patio area were where we spent the majority of our time - plenty of sunshine or shade depending on your preference. The beach club was crowded, but festive, as you would imagine during the holidays. But perhaps the best part of the trip was the wonderful hospitality and food from Isabel, Carlos and Chef Hector. Delicious meals and amazingly attentive service. Can't recommend Los Lagos 19 enough!
Dear Suzanne-Thank you for the generous write up! It was a pleasure to welcome you all to Los Lagos 19. Your kindness to Isabelle, Carlos and Hector was most appreciated.

Charlie, Sardis, Hector, Isabelle, Carlos, Maria and Alexander.
