Why Chris chose Sosua

Villa California was purchased after many trips to the Caribbean, we decided to purchase after we spent a couple weeks in the villa and were close to town, could hear the ocean and felt secure, enjoyed the privacy, all the fruit trees, the private pool and the sound of the ocean.

What makes this villa unique

Villa California is located in Playa Chiquita a very nice upscale area between Puerto Plata and Cabarete, Playa Grande Golf course is close and Playa Dorado Golf course is closer. Guest of Villa California also receive additional discounts when playing golf, scuba diving & snorkel adventures, rental cars and on excursions to Ocean World ! Villa California also offers free WIFI to all guest.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Chris,


> Tomorrow our vacation will be over. I would like to use the opportunity to thank you for letting us use your lovely house in Sosua. We really enjoyed our holiday here. It was perfect for getting away from the winter. Over the last years we have rented quite a number of homes in different countries and yours is one of the best. Everything worked like clockwork and Franziska was always there to help if we had any questions. I will give a writeup in "homeaway.com", but I know from experience that once we are home there is so much to do so it will take some time. If you will allow me one suggestion: put in your add that all windows and veranda doors are screened. It is such a big relief that you can keep the windows open at night with no fear of insects, I am sure a lot of people will appreciate that - just like we did - and it might make all the difference when you have to decide between two rentals.

> We loved the pool and the garden and although we were close to Sosua center it was quiet here and we spent every night on the veranda watching the news and German TV on the internet. In case of power failure your battery system jumped in so we hardly noticed.

> Thank you very much for a relaxing holiday

> Claudia and Dieter

Outstanding private Villa with great staff and amedities.

  • 5 of 5

I just returned home from a week in Sosua @ Villa California. One word...Outstanding! Within a couple hours of showing interest, Chris the owner of the Villa called me and was very informative about the property, the area and the local fun stuff to do. All the tips, suggestions and advice made our trip a lot better and enjoyable!

Upon our arrival we were delighted with the property manager greeting us, rental car (OK Motors) guy meeting us at the airport and the armed guard (watchie man) from 6pm to 6am. Watchie man also holds I.D.'s overnight in case you might have guests. The Villa and property itself was clean/beautiful and we enjoyed the pool, view, balcony and kitchen the most. Chris checked in with us a few times to make sure the pool guy was on point and if we needed anything.

Other than the water pressure to one of the guest bedrooms everything else worked perfectly. Good Wifi, A/C was really cold in the bedrooms and it was nice to have a washing machine and CD player at our leisure. Villa also has a lot of cable channels and flat screen...but who watches TV in paradise?

The house keeper came twice and took care of the floors, linens, laundry and bathrooms (we kept up with the daily cleaning, dishes and garbage). Overall, the private Villa with all it's employees and amenities really was outstanding. We will most definitely rent the villa again the next time we go. Bonus...the 3rd room was downstairs with it's private quarters from the upstairs (like a small private apartment from the upstairs)...it also had a small kitchenette and the water pressure worked great in that shower. The Villa was also on a private street minutes from the strip, town, grocery market and Sosua beach. We have traveled a lot and love the Caribbean sceen...one of the best vacations my buddy and I have had and we have the pictures and videos to prove it;) ?Thanks Chris!

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice house in a quaint neighborhood, just away from Sosua center. This provides a quiet environment. The house, the pool and the garden are neat.

The furniture and equipment are in good condition and the house is comfortable. The A/C units in the bedrooms are quite loud but function very well.

The town is a 5 minutes drive away, which is very convenient.

I recommend this place. It worked well for us.

Perfect place!!!Couldn't be better!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa California with two other friends and enjoyed one of my most memorable vacations ever. The place is exactly what it looks like in the photos. Nothing is hidden. Chris is a real down to earth straight forward type of guy. I had many conversations with him prior to arriving and he was always available. He helped me out with places to visit and even got me a great deal on a rental car which was key while staying at the villa. I felt like I knew him for years. The villa is well stocked with amenities as listed. The property manager was also available when ever I needed and very helpful. The property is very private and comfortable with plenty of space to run around. The gardener came at least three times for the 11 days I stayed and cleaned the grounds and pool. He even got us a few coconuts off the trees for us with no problem. The maid was also very pleasant and was available for the days we requested to clean the villa and change our linens. Most of our time was spent on the outside patio which was very relaxing. I didn't believe Chris at first, but the was an armed guard on the grounds from 7pm-7am every night we were there. So the safety of our belongings and ourselves was very secure. I can go on and on about this place but there is no need to. Everything is as advertised. Chris really set the bar really high with Villa California. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a villa that is clean, well equipped, and very private. I cant wait to go back to enjoy myself again. I refuse to stay any where else in Sosua. That's how great this place is and the people that run, and maintain this property. Bottom line with great people around me on this trip, it was my very best vacation that I will never forget.

P.S. Although my review may sound similar to the rest, its simply because everyone is telling the real truth about Villa California!!

Had a great time at Villa California

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa California with 2 friends for 4 nts. We really enjoyed the stay, would definitely return and highly recommend this place.

First of all the owner, Chris, is a stand up guy. He was easily reachable, very patient through all the questions we had beforehand and was kind enough to accommodate an early check in and late check out (due to flight times).

There are a lot of things we enjoyed about our stay here. The location is excellent, only a five minute drive to the center of Sosua, about 300 pesos if you cab. Close to the beach, Cabarete, etc. There's also an amazing 2nd floor patio where we spent a lot of time.

The house is on a large lot, secured with a gate and at night a security guard would show up and stay till 6am and that was comforting given the house is on a public road and not in a gated community. During the day, the security guard at the compound across the street was extremely friendly and helpful with arranging taxis and directions.

Each of the 3 bedrooms had a full ensuite, an AC, ceiling fan, lots of closet space, a safe, and lots and lots of towels and linens. The beds were very comfortable and the entire place was clean upon arrival. The kitchen had all the cooking supplies you need although some were a little worn out.

There's a beautiful pool in the front yard and the entire lots is very nicely landscaped and has several coconut trees. The groundskeeper who came daily to tend to the pool and lot was kind enough to chop down and open up some fresh coconuts for us.

The entire staff from the groundskeeper, security guard and cleaning lady (she came once during our stay) were really kind and friendly. We made sure that they were all tipped, we shared food and water with them, and made conversation with our broken Spanish.

The property manager that greets you upon arrival is very helpful and thorough and easy to reach if you ever have any issues.

This is the 4th villa I've rented in the Dominican Republic and would definitely consider staying here again if I'm back in the same area and need 3 bedrooms.

Great Value, great home

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this home for 5 nights in Feb 2015. Both the owner and the property manager went out of the way to make sure everything wad taken care of. Felt very safe the entire trip, home is in a very nice quite neighborhood. A short walk will bring you to the beach or down town. We had a wonderful time.

Villa California - great place - make it a good visit for your family

  • 5 of 5

this is a great house and nice value for the price charged. We liked the location though the 'across the street from the ocean' is not super true since there are gates and walls and private residences blocking ocean access, but you can hear the waves at night, and great beaches are a short drive away. nice security with locking gate and we were provided a guard from 6 pm to 6 am which covered the darkness hours. really nice private pool; nicely stocked kitchen; 3 separate bathrooms with the three bedrooms, all quite large. the outdoor patio is also really a living room. we never had to turn on the air conditioning since the ceiling fans throughout the house did a great job. and for those of you looking as to where to come in the DR. I would highly recommend Sosua since the North Coast has wonderful beaches and does not have the concrete jungles of the all inclusives around Punta Cana and Bavaro. And the owner worked with us on a local rental car which saved us a lot of money and that was great. He was very responsive to all email requests for information.
