About Glen Pearce

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

Why Glen Pearce chose Puerto Plata

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

What makes this villa unique

Private gymnasium

Home theatre room

Billiard table

65000 gallon pool with 2 islands

waterfall with jetted heated outside pool

Villa Rental at Bentley's near Puerto Plata

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location and great staff!

  • 5 of 5

Two families (12 total with the youngest at 14 years old) spent the week after Christmas at this villa. The pictures do a really good job of showing how beautiful both the villa is and how amazing the location is. And the fact that there were three staff there during the day meant we didn't have to cook or clean! So the villa provides a great combination of a private home (home cooked meals with plenty of space for at least 12 and a pool that is huge!) and a hotel (no cooking or cleaning and clean sheets/towels everyday). We felt completely safe since the neighborhood is upscale for the area. You can take a 10 minute walk down to the local public beach that is small but had great body surfing waves. An excursions coordinator came by early in our trip so we were able to book the waterfalls trip, a catamaran adventure, a fishing trip, and horseback riding once we arrived. the gym is not up to hotel standards but we did use the treadmill. You will love this spot if you want to be near Puerto Plata. And the owner was incredibly responsive both before and during our stay.

Vacation with luxury!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 9 stayed here in July, 2015. If you want luxury all the way, this is it. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful villa with breathtaking views and staff who accommodated us any way they could. The bedrooms are much bigger and nicer than the photographs can show. Definitely 5 stars!

Awesome Time

  • 5 of 5

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.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

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.
