About Luis R. Burset
I am a 59 year old man from Puerto Rico. I have worked in Advertising, Marketing and Research for the past 35 years. I recently completed my Ph.D. in Puerto Rican and Caribbean History, one of my life´s dreams and goals. My wife and I enjoy Casa de Campo. When renting, our goal is that our guests enjoy the villa, Casa de Campo, and if possible, the Dominican Republic, the way we do.
Luis R. Burset purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Luis R. Burset chose Casa de Campo
La Florentina is a special place. Attention is paid to details; every corner is beautifully designed for our guests´ enjoyment. We stay there every time we are able to, and every time make enhancements, trying to keep the villa in perfect state.
What makes this Villa unique
While simple and perhaps small, the villa is so tastefully decorated that you will not want to leave. The spaces are right for sleeping, sharing with friends and family, sunbathing, enjoying the jacuzzi, resting, reading, enjoying good wine, a cold beer, or anything you want to do. Our maid, Mayra, will visit the villa everyday in the morning hours to make up beds, and even cook breakfasts for you if you get the groceries (there is an excellent market within Casa de Campo, Nacional, that even delivers groceries to the villa)
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
A perfect golf holiday in the beautiful villa
We throughly enjoyed our a week stay in La Florentina (golf villa 57) in Casa De Campo.
The villa is beautifully decorated with ample space for lounging around. The outdoor jacuzzi is a big hit for our teenagers. The villa is on the Links golf course and also very close to the stunning golf course - Teeth of the Dog, which was perfect for golf enthusiasts like me and my husband.
Mayra, the house maid, keeps the villa spotless and made us delicious local cuisine for lunch upon request, Even my fussy eating teenagers finished all their food on the plates.
The owner Luis is very responsive and informative. Thank you very much for the wonderful holiday! Hope we will be back in the future.
Charming honeymoon cottage!
Very charming honeymoon cottage! Tastefully decorated, extremely comfortable and welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay
Abad and Aracelis, we are very happy to hear that the effort put into your enjoyment of La Florentina paid off. We look forward to seeing you back very soon. Muchísimas gracias. Luis
Quaint place to stay, just needs a little more love.
My experience overall was positive. I didn't have anything go wrong. The lady that received me when I arrive was nice and willing to serve. The property manager, was not able to welcome me in, but was attentive over whatsapp and did pull through in a timely manner with the few things that I requested. So overall I was satisfied.
However, coming from my hospitality background there are things I found that I think the owner should take care of and that are not that expensive to fix, but they do go a long way in improving the guest experience:
No1. There is no deadbolt or chain to lock the main door. Casa de Campo is supposed to be a super safe place. But still, that's beside the point. A New Yorker for instance, wouldn't feel comfortable knowing someone might easily lockpick the place and enter, no matter how unlikely. Same goes for the main room door. The door knob does not lock.
2- Some bathroom fixtures have rusted metal parts. There is a drawer in the fridge that is also broken and put together with silicone. I would totally have those changed out.
3- Some day-to-day items didn't work properly or were not present. The food can opener didn't work, so the property manager opened the cans for me with a knife. There was no iron and board to iron my clothes, so the manager brought me one from another villa. There was no umbrella on site (it happened to rain a lot), but the manager brought me one.
That said, I did have good quality sleep, the place was very clean, and the AC and wifi are rock solid. So with those basics covered I would say the place is ok to stay.
Thomas, your review is really the first of its kind for us. We put our efforts into making our renters enjoy their stay, providing courteous maid service, and the support and attention of Julio as a host, at no extra cost. I did not know we had received a "mystery renter" who was spot checking the villa for potential security issues in the event a concerned New Yorker might rent. Julio had reported that as soon as you asked for something, he went to get it for you. Nonetheless, as we take our reviews seriously, we have already replaced the can opener. Luis
A Perfect Paradise
I cannot say enough AMAZING things about this villa. The villa is about 45 minutes from the Punta Cana airport located in Casa de Campo. I spent the most wonderful 5 days here. The villa is spacious and comfortable with beautiful art work, a relaxing jacuzzi and is so perfectly lit at night that you may not wish to leave. There are so many places to sit and enjoy the paradise around you in this villa that you do not know where to sit first!
The bedrooms are large and superbly decorated. Each bedroom has a bathroom. The kitchen and common living area are both upstairs. If you sit at the dining room table then you can see the Caribbean while you enjoy your breakfast. Utterly spectacular.
Luis is a wonderful host. He will answer your questions and provide you with recommendations. The best parts of the villa are Julio and Mayra! Julio will provide transportation for you and will help you get groceries. Mayra will make the most amazing breakfasts for you every day.
Stay here. You will never, ever want to leave!
Rebecca, we are doubly grateful, for choosing us, and for your review. It shows that it pays to make an effort to build the ambiance and provide the service to make the best of your guests’ experience. Come back anytime. Gracias mil.
Golf Villa 57 La Florentina
We had a great time during our 8 week stay here at Casa de Campo. Our host Luis was attentive and ensured any questions we had were answered promptly. The villa manager Julio dropped in every once in awhile to say hell and make sure we were well. Our maid Mayra is wonderful and kept the villa spotless. I would highly recommend a stay at La Florentina. The villa has an eclectic look and very comfortable The view out the back is private with nothing but the green grass of the 17th. fairway of the Links Golf Course. Quiet and comfortable you will not be disappointed.
Paul and Annie.
Paul, thank you very much. A two month stay is a challenge for anyone, and we are very thankful that you felt the quality, cleanliness, and comfort were there all the time. As Americans say, "mi casa es su casa". Come back anytime. Luis
Comfortable and nice
We had a wonderful stay at La Florentina, just the right size for our family, everything clean and very nice, and with a relaxing view to the golf course.
Also Luis and the Mayra and Julio took care of all the details during our stay.
Thanks a lot
