Why Jannifer Weiss chose Dominican Republic East

Went for a week's vacation at the resort. Never wanted a second home. Bought a lot. Went back 6 months later and started building the villa. It's that spectacular...

Guestbook comments from the owner

The famous poet Pablo Neruda wrote that "every time you depart and leave, a little piece of you dies and stays behind". This time, we are all leaving a big piece behind here in your home in Punta Cana loaded with great memories...joy ,smiles, laughter, and gratitude to God, life, Vincente, Miguelina Federico and you for opening up your house to all of us who have had the blessing to be able to enjoy this unique and beautiful place.

We go back to "real life" away from this paradise where dreams come true and where we escaped from our daily routine and "to-do" lists.

We go back with our batteries fully charged, happy and excited about the idea of coming back and sharing with our families great times and memories that will forever stay in our hearts and souls.

None of these things were possible without the main orchestra director, Xiomara, who used all her energies and helped us 24/7. You are lucky to have here on your team.

I didn't know orchids grew on palm trees! The gardener for this home has created a lush background for a totally soothing vacation. Keep your eyes out for the woodpecker. I had to google this beautiful bird: http://www.oiseaux-birds.com/card-hispaniolan-woodpecker.html. It's a species that's native to the island and is found nowhere else. The groundsman also maintains the bikes so they actually work. The housekeeper is special too. I miss her easy manner and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Spotless kitchen and there's plenty of towels. We're already dreaming to go back. Everything is done right at this house in Punta Cana.

Exceptional in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled extensively in the Caribbean and stayed at many villas, we arrived with very high expectations...but the moment we arrived and walked through the front door, this villa just blew us away. WOW. From the stylish zen vibe to the amazing chef to the always smiling staff and the very helpful "concierge", this was our best vacation ever.

The villa's location in the exclusive Arrecife section of the resort was perfect...larger homes and larger lots meant much greater privacy than in other areas of the resort, and the villa was close to everything...minutes away.

The daily decisions as to what to do were the most difficult part of the trip: Lounge by the pool, go to the beach, play tennis or golf, hit the spa, head for the fresh water lagoons, go snorkeling, paddle-boarding, horseback riding, where to have lunch, should we hire the chef for dinner...and all of the activities/restaurants/beaches were located a very short golf cart ride away.

We chose this villa because my brother's family stayed here last year and raved about it. Now I know why. It truly is exceptional in every way. Thanks to the owner, Jan, who went out of her way to offer assistance and support from the very first email we sent asking lots of questions along the way. I would give your villa 10 stars if I could.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! The highest compliment the villa can receive is to have repeat guests and referrals from previous guests. Our goal is to exceed expectations, and that goal is always reached. It would take too much time to articulate all the reasons why this villa experience is superior to other villas in the area, but it is...a previous reviewer captured it best by saying: Style, Location and Service. It is simply the best choice. Please come back soon, it was a pleasure having your family stay with us. Best, Jan

Magnificent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We are four couples who had the pleasure of renting this magnificent villa for 5 days for a quick golf/beach vacation. The pictures shown here simply do not do this property justice. The architecture, design, lay out, lighting, garden and art work are all quite stunning. The master suite bathroom alone is heaven. I loved it so much that Im stealing some ideas for my own! Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were and there was plenty of private space as well as gathering space. We played golf at all 3 of the nearby courses and loved them all. The owner was so very helpful and patient in making all the pre trip arrangements. She was a pleasure to deal with. We hired the private chef for breakfast each day and one special dinner. Highly recommend. And of course Miguelena was the nicest, sweetest person and so efficient. She kept the villa immaculate, freshly washed sheets and towels each day, lighting the candles before we arrived home each evening,...she kept us very happy! I dont think I went into the kitchen once even to pour myself a cup of coffee. The property manager made arrangements for an impromtu catamaran trip for all of us and it was great. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for a wonderful trip!

PERFECT CHOICE - STYLE, LOCATION AND SERVICE

  • 5 of 5

The villa was even more beautiful than the pictures show, and many more palm trees have been added to create an even greater sense of lushness and privacy. The services provided by the maid, gardener and manager were an added bonus, and we hired the chef for two special dinners poolside - the pool lights, lanterns and candles created a magical ambiance under the canopy of stars.

While we were there, we checked out a few other villas for a return trip and none came close to matching up. There are less expensive villas to rent, but if you can swing it, this is the best. Thank you, we will be back.

Live Like a Movie Star

  • 5 of 5

This home certainly met the objective I had in mind when I planned the trip of a lifetime to Punta Cana to celebrate my 60th birthday with family. The Villa is breathtaking and each of us - two couples, two teenagers, and a single - enjoyed separate experiences, but this home brought us together every day. We started each day with a fantastic breakfast prepared by gracious Miguelina - who always went out of her way to accommodate our needs. Vincente never let us lift a finger and kept the grounds, the golf carts, the pool, and our evening communal-the hot tub, immaculate. His smile was infectious. We had dinners prepared by Chef Federico that were better than the restaurant dinners! Plus he was extremely charming and fun. We loved the decor and the comfort of the home. We all wanted to go home and buy the exact same beds since we slept in such comfort, especially with the constant breeze lulling us to sleep and keeping us cool (also A/C available in each room). The same can be said for the lounge chairs and the pool rafts - such a treat to enjoy the best of the best. Of course we also enjoyed some of what Punta Cana had to offer: Golf at Corales (best course ever played-immaculate), the golf at the Resort La Cana course, horseback riding (twice!) and galloping along the beach, scuba diving, white sand beaches and spectacular blue colored waters, boating and snorkeling-we were out on a 42 ft. Sea Ray all day, Six Senses Spa Treatments, the New Years Eve Gala at the Club (we danced all night and met a fun local family from Santo Domingo - the Judge and her beautiful and talented teenagers), Cigar Bar at the new Westin Hotel close by, and the amazing Ecological Park with the fresh water pools. The island is one of the most beautiful in the world-(and we've travelled the world)! A word of warning - the airport is a zoo! You might also want to book some activities prior to arrival as once you are there, all you want to do is relax by the beautiful pool! Thank you to the owner, Jannifer, for all her help - she was a joy to work with - very responsive and accommodating.

Magnificent Owner

  • 5 of 5

Several months ago, we booked this amazing home in the Dominican Republic, and were really looking forward to our stay. About a week before we were scheduled to leave, a personal emergency arose that required us to cancel our trip entirely. The owner of the home couldn’t have been more understanding, and immediately offered to refund our money. We were blown away by this unexpected and thoughtful gesture, and know that she went above and beyond what someone else in her situation would have done. Next time we plan a vacation to the Dominican Republic, this is where we will definitely stay!

Golf: The world's next great golf destination with golf courses designed by all the best names in golf: P.B. Dye, Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo,Gary Player, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Pete Dye, Jr.

Villa Las Palmas is located on the 14th hole of a magnificent championship golf course designed by P.B. Dye and is the perfect complement to the resort's three miles of white-sand beaches. The course features 14 holes with breathtaking views of the sparkling Caribbean, with four holes playing directly alongside the sea. Golf Magazine is fond of the 18th at La Cana 'The grand par-5 18th is a gentle dogleg to the left that is clearly patterned after the famous 18th at Pebble Beach - the shoreline is sandier, the water bluer and the journey from tee to green is longer and more perilous.'

Nearby is a Jack Nicklaus signature course located at Cap Cana, and a 45 minute drive takes you to a spectacular cliff side course designed by Nick Faldo. A scenic 1.5 hour drive takes you to three courses at Casa de Campo, the classic Teeth of the Dog, The Links and Dye Fore.

And when you need a break from the links, there are other pleasures: The world-class Six Senses Spa, deep-sea fishing, boating, sailing, tennis, horseback rides on the beach, kite-surfing, scuba diving and snorkeling ,casinos, restaurants, merengue dancing, and just hanging out poolside or oceanside.

This is golfing paradise. Live the dream today. Make this your next golf-getaway vacation!
