About the property

Fully staffed including cook 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, sleeps 16

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 7 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 chef included.

All the bedrooms are at least queen size and uniquely decorated with their own modern bathrooms.

There are several other patios on the property as well as an 900 square foot observation patio.

All furnishings are new and to the highest standard with various paintings commissioned by famous Dominican artists.

.

Bentley villa is ideal for small groups or families with formal dining in the dining room or on the balcony.

Our housekeeper and chef, Santa will prepare your meals from a large range of international dishes and serve you snacks and refreshments as you require.

All our staff are discreet and will afford you all the privacy you desire and the villa unlike others is not overlooked by anyone so topless bathing or midnight skinny dipping is not a problem.

On arrival at the villa Carlos will familiarise you with everything and give you the keys.

The famous north coast beach of Cofresi is less than 10 minutes walk away and has over 1 mile of golden sand as well as excellent snorkeling. One can rent jet-skis, canoes and fishing trips are available. It is also shared by two international world class resorts whose facilities including restaurants, internet and shops are available to our villa.

Next to the beach is the famous marine eco park, Ocean world which is definitely worth a day visit and amongst many other attractions one can literally spend an hour swimming with tamed dolphins. Ocean world is presently completing a new restaurant complex with casino and disco-tec and has a marina which will be able to berth up to 100 yachts

There are whole arrays of other activities in the area including some of the Caribbean’s best golf resorts within 15 minutes away. The Puerto Plata cable car will give you spectacular views and should you wish visit the Ambar Museum in town where you can also buy amber and Larimar jewelry as well as world famous cigars and local paintings in the nearby shops.

All within less than a half hour drive are the beaches of Costambar, Long beach, Maimon, Playa Dorada and Sosua. For night life Puerto Plata and surrounding areas is second to none and has many discos, night clubs and casinos.

One of the most popular activities are the various safari tours that will pick you up right from Cofresi and include trips to the rain forests, white water rafting and to the water falls in the nearby mountains, that is however if you can bear to leave the villa! We will reply to all enquiries and give you our own web address for more info and photos.

About The Owner

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

Designed and built my lovely villa 5 years ago...took 18 months to build. My criteria for building was to have the very best villa in Cofresi and I think I succeeded in this. I rent it out now all year as I live in a smaller house quite nearby

I am one of the few owners that lives here year round and I would never want to live any where else. This means I am always available if you need me.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why The Owner chose Cofresi

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 nor have any adjoining neighbours. We have facilities that other villas don't have.

What makes this villa unique

We pamper you in the villa. Our staff do all the cooking and cleaning.

When you arrive Santa our billingual housekeeper will go over the menus to discuss what meals she can prepare for you.

Our excursions manager will visit you at the villa and all the trips you may wish to take will pick you up at the villa. We look after your transport needs and will arrange taxis or a minivan with driver for the day.

Our masseuse, Raquel, fully qualified will visit you at the villa and also does manicure and pedicure.

Carlos our pool boy/gardener/butler will do errands as needed

You just relax soak up the sun and enjoy the facilities in the villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was highly impressed with this beautiful home! My father has stayed there numerous times, and the house and the views were even more spectacular than he described. Unfortunately, we had a miscommunication concerning how long we were supposed to stay and had to leave the house a day early and seek other accomodations. Be sure to keep a copy of all emails when reserving this house. Unfortunately, we won't be staying in this house anymore. I am just glad that I did get the opportunity to stay there once. Alayda and Rafael were wonderful, and it was a pleasure to meet Glen.

Amazing property with wonderful staff and fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

The house is better than the pictures. It is spacious inside and out and easily accommodated our group of 16. The pool, the hot tub and the views are one of a kind. We spent a lot of time on the upstairs porch and relaxing in the hot tub in the evening....just wonderful. The hot tub is drained everyday and takes a little time to heat up, so plan accordingly.

Everyone on the staff was so friendly and accommodating. The staff went grocery shopping and prepared 2 meals a day for us. The meals were fabulous. Plan on eating out on the first day of check in. Everyone had a smile on their face and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. They also helped arrange our tours and did a great job of keeping the house very clean.

Overall the house was in great shape but there were a few little things that could be addressed. The screens on the sliding glass doors had rips in them. There weren't many bugs but it only takes a few to be annoying. We were a big group and were in the water a lot which created a challenge of having enough dry towels. Small things in the grand scheme of things.

Beautiful Ocean View

  • 3 of 5

Our trip was with 4 couples. The views from the balcony and pool are breathtaking! The house is awesome, although a little on the worn side. It could use a little freshen up. The beach they talk about, really isn't in walking distance ( unless you like mountain hiking ), but we found a lovely beach an hour away. The best part of this rental is Santa and the staff. Santa was awesome, and took care of arranging everything for us. And the staff was terrific. They kept the house super clean, and cooked us awesome Dominica meals all week!!!!

Owner's Response: During your stay the hot tub heater malfunctioned but to be fair we did replace it with a new one within 24 hours. The villa is elevated so obviously there is some slopes involved but I can walk there in 9 minutes (at 71 years old). My staff rated you all highly and we hope to see you back some day

2nd Home

  • 5 of 5

After staying at the Bentley 4 or 5 times it is my 2nd home. Nowhere else in Puerto Plata will do, the staff, view and amenities are superb. The staff has always been outstanding, particularly Santa (excellent Host and Cook), Carlos and even the night guard make a great team.

Amazing view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We got in late night, and Glen the owner had arranged for us to be picked up at Santiago Airport. Our driver was vey nice. He took us out to a local eatery in downtown Puerto Plata before arriving at Villa. Once we got to the villa we saw the house and night view. It was awesome. However when we woke up in the morning, the view got 100 times better! The house is way better than advertised. Everyone on the staff from Rafael to Calvin, to the maids and cook were very welcoming and went out of their way to make sure everything is comfortable for our stay. Rafael setup a new taxi driver for us, Edwin (highly recommended) for a couple of days and he showed us around a lot of tourists as well as local spots. I highly recommend this spot, way better then being trapped in a hotel. Dinner was cooked a little earlier to our liking, because staff had to leave for the day, but other than that, no one in our party of 7 had any complaints with the house and staff. Will definitely stay here again when visiting Puerto Plata/Cofresi Area.
