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.’

An Absolutely Amazing Property, Staff, & Experience
Our high expectations were absolutely blown away by our experience staying at Los Lagos 19 in Casa de Campo. From the beauty and quality of the villa, to the professionalism and courtesy of the staff - it was a 5-star experience from beginning to end.
Charlie was responsive and informative leading up to our trip, and once the ball was handed over to Sardis and her crew it was smooth sailing from there. The property turns out be even larger in scale than what you can tell from viewing the photos online. The pool is huge and open spaces are so numerous I don't think we actually utilized them all during our 6 night stay.
The meals prepared by Chef Hector were fantastic - to include our daily breakfasts and the authentic Dominican chicken dinner he prepared at our special request one evening.
Casa de Campo is an absolute hidden gem and we will no doubt return again in the very near future. This is a must-stay property in a resort that is too amazing to put into words. From the relaxing Minitas Beach Club, to the amazing restaurants at the Marina, to the views at Altos de Chacon - I'm not sure where else you can find such quality and variety in just one spot.
Kudos to Charlie and his amazing crew!

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!

And your respect and enjoyment of the villa makes brings it all together.

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.
