“Private Oasis on Ocean”

Our family (2 adults, 3 young adults) had a wonderful vacation week at Villa Harty. There were five of us, but there was plenty of space with four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, plus one additional half-bath. The property was somewhat off the beaten path, but is gated and secure. One or more of the household staff is generally present throughout the day, evening and overnight – Lily, Luis & Francisco. We thoroughly enjoyed our private oasis with a beautiful figure 8 pool, including a footbridge over the middle which leads to the gate/short pathway to the beach. The pool was kept impeccably clean as were the rest of the grounds and house. During the summer season, there is less tourist activity in the area and the beach was quiet and sparsely used – it was almost as it we had our own private beach. Luis or Francisco would graciously carry lounge chairs to/from the beach and were always so accommodating. We spent much of our time at the house, when not in the pool or at the beach, on the spacious lanai, drinking coffee in the morning, enjoying the ocean view and breeze, and eating our meals. Our last night at the house, we stayed up to savor our final hours in this comfortable spot. We were informed by management that a private chef could be hired for a day to cook three meals at quite a reasonable expense. Unfortunately, he was not available during our visit, however, we were not lacking for excellent food. Lily, for a small fee and the cost of groceries, cooked us three delicious meals, even staying a little later on our last day there to barbecue chicken on the grill. She even shopped for the food, managing to spend less money on groceries for a meal for 5+, than we did on a snack run! Best food in the Dominican - Muchas gracias again, Lily! Lily worked diligently throughout the day, washing dishes, cleaning, and doing laundry - not only sheets & towels, but our clothes as well which were then neatly folded & returned to the correct bedrooms. Luis was always available as our interpreter and to help us with any questions or needs. Francisco patrolled the grounds throughout the night and we never felt unsafe. Anytime we left the house and returned, Luis or Francisco was always there to open/close the gate. We felt very welcome by not only the staff, but by the owner & manager who made sure that our stay lived up to our expectations.
The Villa is about 25 minutes from the Puerto Plata airport. We rented a car and as the driving was a bit challenging, we limited our use of the car to the short drive into Cabarate, which has many shops and restaurants directly on the beach, as well as the local grocery store. The manager arranged for a tour guide – Andy Garcia – to come to the house to set-up activities during our visit. Andy arranged three wonderful excursions – Ocean World, 27 Waterfalls & Paradise Island. Transportation was provided for all, with our pick-up/drop-off place directly across the street at a local hotel, or at the house. Andy himself accompanied us on one of these tours proving to be an interesting and gracious guide.
In summary, our family had a memorable vacation at Villa Harty and has already discussed returning to this private and charming haven on the ocean. Many thanks again to Shirley, Janet, Luis, Lily, Francisco & Andy for your kindness & hospitality.
