Bentley villa (named by our guests as James Bond) has recently been constructed and is of the highest quality.
Located in the desirable altos de Cofresi it overlooks the Cofresi beach complex and has far reaching views along the entire north coast. The villa has 6 large bedrooms all ensuite luxury bathrooms (marble tops), A/C, balconies, TV and telephone outlets. Over 45 original works of art . Main living area has mezzanine floor with 16ftx 12ft mural and 3 walk out doors to large balconies and hot tub. The games complex (billiard table, , etc.) has an equipped (6 piece)gymnasium and separate cinema with projector. The infinity swimming pool (60000 gallons) has 2 islands with bridge and uses all commercial pool fittings. The heated jetted pool on the main living area floor has a waterfall that cascades down to the huge main pool and a seated grotto. A 10 minute to beach and Ocean world. Villa is valued at US $1.7 mm.
Full maid service, pool boy and cook included.
Born 1947 in Hampshire England
Originally lived in the Dominican Republic in the early 70s and worked there for many years in the Bank of Nova Scotia and Royal bank of Canada
I designed and built Bentley villa in 2009 and it took 2 years to construct. I wanted it to be the best villa in Cofresi and it is that.
The views from Bentley are tremendous and because of the elevation we can never have anyone overlooking us.
I may be a bit old fashioned but I believe in giving good value and more than anything that my customers return here or recommend to their friends.
Glen Pearce purchased this villa in 2008
Playa Cofresi has everything going for it and still retains its Dominican charm unlike some places like Sosua and Cabarete
We have the elevations here which no only give incredible views but we nearly always have cooler sea breezes which make the climate absolutely perfect.
Unlike most of the villas on the beach we are not overlooked and have complete privacy but still within walking distance of local amenities and the beach.all bedrooms are large, comfortable, have views, air con , fans and ensuites bathrooms
Home theatre room
65000 gallon pool with 2 islands
waterfall with jetted heated outside pool
We have been to Antigua 3 times and St Lucia 4 times always staying in 5 star hotels and thought it was time to explore farther afield in the Caribbean. We decided on a villa rental as hotels are generally 'all inclusive' which can be restrictive regarding island exploration and eating out. We arrived at the airport and transferred to the Villa in about 30mins. What an experience, erected on a hillside, the views were outstanding, Puerto Plata in the distance and below a beautiful bay with the blue sea stretching to the horizon. The pictures on the website attracted us to the property but the reality is visually stunning, to the point where we christened it the 'James Bond Villa' immediately.The pool is enormous, excellent for proper exercise swimming with an amazing Jacuzzi sitting about 15 feet above. As a sunbather the weather was perfect, hot, but always a cooling breeze, which can be deceptive, use a uvf 15 or 30 always!
Inside the villa can only be described as luxurious, hence the nickname we gave it, high ceilings, large glass doors and windows to enhance the views, remote controlled air conditioning, spotlessly clean and obviously an 'as new' feeling having only been completed recently.
The owner, an English ex banker came and introduced himself and explained the daily itinery regarding the staff and a geneal update on what to expect. Generally we opted for a large breakfast, skipped lunch and used local restaurants in the evening, however a light lunch is available nearby at most of the beaches if required. We rented a 4x4 for a few days to explore the local area and to reach recommende restuarants further afield, no problems navigating, just follow the sea/coastline, mind the potholes (a Caribbean trait) and take care driving, think Italy. Avoid the local water and drink only bottled as supplied by the Villa.
Overall, the description of the location, layout and amenities was as described and we enjoyed a relaxing 2 weeks with no problems, excellent weather and would thoroughly recommend the island and the villa to other travellers, especially during the bleak English wintertime.
Six of my friends and I enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff was awesome the villa was excellent. We had issues with the ac the first day but Glen had someone come in the next day and fix it. From there.. it was smooth sailing. Only wish that the pool had a heater by the hot tub was a great substitute and was enjoyed by all every night. The view from the villa was just simply beautiful. I hope Glen never sales it. Since being back in the states, I have given Glen's information to many people interested in having the same Bentley Villa experience has I did. Thanks Glen.
The beginning of the summer was my second trip to the fabulous Bentley Villa and once again, it did not disappoint. My family of five love vacationing in this timeless masterpiece of architecture. The staff are wonderful and the cooking is always delicious, especially when they prepare their native dishes. Glen is always a phone call away, and the views are breathtaking and gorgeous. Booking now for 2015. See you soon.
My stay at this property was simply wonderful. i would recommend this property to anyone who wants to experience Puerto Plata, In VIP style. Book this property ,as you will not be disappointed. I stay in the property for one week, in April 2014, and Im definately planning on staying there, everytime I go to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
this was our second stay at one of Glen.s villa and again we were treaty like royalty. On this stay we brought our children and they truly enjoyed the awesome pool and we all enjoyed the beautiful meals prepared by Aledya. The villa is spotless and when not cooking meals the staff is busy cleaning and preparing snacks or refreshments. Glen the owner stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking ,We had massages arranged at the villa which is a must and a tour guide stopped by to book us some excursions.we also went to the marina which was great.If anyone is thinking of booking a villa this is the onr look no further.
We stayed there for the last week of February 2014. 14 including 6 kids 4-12. The staff was very good but communication was difficult in English. Most food was well prepared. The exercise equipment pool table and foose ball was not at all usable and should not even be listed. The jacuzzis took hours to warm up each day and could never get hot ( no cover so heat could not be retained. No circ pumps except jet pumps on a timer so you could not heat without jets which also cool. The step into the jacuzzi is slippery and two of us fell and one was badly bruised on ribs and hip. ( no not drunk not old) so watch out. 8 of 14 of us got montazumas revenge over the last few days but we think that had nothing to do with the house. It lasted about a week so travel home was lots of fun. The rest of the comments listed is true. Nice view. Beach below is poor but nice beaches < 20 min. Kite surfing is GREAT! Down town 10 min away but shabby lots of poverty. The eagle just 20 feet away is better.
Altos de cofresi is the most upmarket area of Puerto Plata...overlooking the famous cofresi beach and sun village tourist complex including the new marina , casino and night club together with Ocean world. Just minutes from the town of Puerto Plata with good shopping and many excellent restaurants and modern facilities. With the new highway the villa is now only 30 minutes from Puerto Plata international airport and less than an hour and a half from Santiago airport.All major golfing facilities are nearby as well as numerous other major tourist attractions. The villa is a 10 minute drive to the new carnival cruise ship terminal in Maimon
