About the property

Bathed in sunlight in the day and under the stars at night.

Los Lagos 19 is a large 5 bedroom tropical Caribbean villa -with a large L shaped swimming pool

The villa is set on Casa de Campo's Links golf course with a breathtaking panoramic 180 degree view of the south western sky, framed by palm trees.

It is ideally located: close to the beach, (3 minute walk) golf and Casa de Campo hotel.


Living Room

The entrance to LL 19 leads into the great room (a 30”+ cathedral ceiling) which faces out to a patio, overlooking the pool and golf course in the background. Because it faces west, it is perfect light for the afternoons and evenings (and sunsets)

In Los Lagos' Great Room are are two large sofas and 4 large wicker chairs, an important French antique table desk, a large flat screen TV, and SONY audio components (for iPods, computers, etc) The decor is an eclectic mix of contemporary and tropical Caribbean.

In the living room of Los Lagos 19 is a 5’ x 9’ antique Dominican planked wooden table with seating for 10 (there is 2nd large table that seats 8 on the patio) So sit down dinners for 18+ are easy.

The villa is full of tropical style and charm. Windows are framed with louvered mahogany, sliding doors that open onto the patio and pool, from the living room and each bedroom.

A wonderful collection of Dominican, Haitian and Cuban art adorns every room in the villa and the entrance hall way as well.

The Terrace Patio

The patio, just off of the Great Room, is a popular gathering spot for guests. It includes a large pool and 4 different sitting areas for relaxing, in and out of the shade. It is surrounded on three sides by enchanting tropical gardens, and endless green plantings.

Guests enjoy morning coffee on the terrace while watching golfers tee off from the 15th tee of the Links Golf Course.

(The Links Course is just one of 78 holes of championship golf in Casa de Campo: the others are Teeth of the Dog, Links, Dye Four, La Romana Country Club and a 6 hole practice course)

In the afternoon, a popular spot on the terrace is an antique Haitian wrought iron bar, a fitting piece, for preparing a rhum punch (from Haiti’s legendary Oloffson Hotel;Port-au-Prince, Haiti.)

Extensive outdoor lighting illuminates the grounds and palm trees at night.

5 Bedrooms

Each bedroom in LL19 has an en-suite bathroom. Again all with louvered mahogany windows. Each bedroom has remote controlled A/C and tropical ceiling fans. Three have flat screen TV’s

All windows in the villa open to green vistas and lots of day light, in every direction

The Kitchen

The 20’ x 25’ professional kitchen receives “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” from guests. It has end to end 25” deep Italian marble counter top and 20” high back splash. Also dramatically enhanced with a 20+’ cathedral ceiling, with tropical fans

There is a 6’ x 4’ Italian marble island in the middle of the kitchen. Lots of room for all the chef’s helpers.

There is a 6'’ wide stainless refrigerator, a 6 burner stainless stove and oven, hi-end microwave, two stainless sinks and much more. And flat ware, crystal and china to serve 20+.

AND, there is a large 2nd kitchen for villa staff and used when entertaining on a grand scale.

The villa is equipped to easily handle sit down dinner for 20 people

Great Location

The Beach

Los Lagos is only a 5 minute walk to the beach!

And 3 minutes by golf cart to the hotel area many of the children's activities are located and 5 minutes to the Golf Pro Shop. Tennis is 5 minutes away by golf cart.

The Staff of Los Lagos 19

We have a permanent staff of 3 at the villa. A "chef de cuisine," a maid in charge of the villa and a handyman who does everything from trimming the palm trees, to cleaning the swimming pool. to servicing drinks and snacks at sunset.

Our permanent staff is a chef/maid, and and caretaker/handyman. Others can be added as requested. (e.g. extra maid, masseuse, baby sitter)

The staff prepares meals and snacks, drinks, etc with food and beverage purchased by guests

Why Charlie Decker, Owner chose Los Lagos

Los Lagos 19 is my 2nd villa in Casa de Campo. I purchased my first in 2004 so I have 12 years of experince hosting guests in Casa de Campo. I couldn't resist purchasing Los Lagos 19 after noticing everyone who visited, on entering exclaimed "Wow!!" when they say the interior of the villa and the breathtaking panoramic view

It is also a great location. A 5 minute walk to the beach, 5 minutes by golf cart to the Marina.

What makes this villa unique

"I play a lot of tennis, and golf and enjoy visiting nearby islands like Saona and Catalina for snorkeling and lunches on the beach or at sea. I travel around the country extensively in conjunction with my foundation. The Dominican Republic is a large and beautiful country, and the people in the campo and small towns are expecially friendly and welcoming. I have discovered and enjoy it's wonderful culture and history. And the starting point are the friendly always smiling Dominican people.’

Subject: RE: Comments re visit to Los Lagos 19 (July 2-5, 2017)

It was awesome! Really, REALLY great. The staff was perfect and we had a great time.

-Pre arrival planning: I could reach all the staff, have some calls with chef Hector, Isabel and Maria and everything happened as expected;

- The villa: it was perfect (cleaning, structure, swimming pool, etc…). We had just a small problem regarding the air conditioner of one room but nothing really important and Isabel helped us to solve;

- Staff: AMAZING, your team is really good. Carlos, Hector and Isabel are very helpful and for sure it’s something that we consider a differential;

- Maria Ventura: also great, she send me the contacts and manage everything that we need from her.

For sure I’ll stay in Los Lagos again and let me know if you want to deal something different if I rent like 5 or 6 weekends during the next months.

Tks again Charles.

You cannot imagine a more beautiful and relaxing setting than can be found in this special home. Architecturally dramatic, richly appointed, immaculately kept, overlooking a golf course and lake (with lots of privacy), and staffed by a warm and accomplished cook and her assistant. We have been all over the Caribbean and can safely say you will not find a better setting.

A perfect place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

While this may be a strange way to start a review, let me first say that I have not (yet) stayed in this property! We did, however, just stay in the owner's (Charlie's) prior property in Casa de Campo (CdC), Golf Villa 119. While we absolutely LOVED GV119, you can see by the pictures that Charlie's new place is quite an upgrade. That said, there are many similarities... both have 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, both are on the Links golf course in CdC, and this new property will benefit from the same staff that Charlie used for Golf Villa 119.

Our vacation at Charlie's prior property was nothing short of amazing. Our party of twelve (aged 8 to 80) arrived on a Friday night to a beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious meal thanks to Isabel (the head cook) and Carmen, and served with great care by Carlos. While there are many places to eat at CdC in the Marina and at Altos de Chavon, we loved Isabel's meals so much and so appreciated the ease of eating at home, that after one dinner outside the villa (at Pubbelly Sushi at the Marina... which everybody did enjoy), we decided to have the team prepare the rest of our dinners. I can honestly say that every dish at every dinner was amazing with a chicken/steak/fish dish or two, a salad, a rice and beans dish, and a plantain dish at almost every meal. Breakfast was wonderful also with eggs, gorgeous and delicious fresh fruit, plantains, breakfast meat, fresh OJ, etc...

The resort was also perfect for our family. We rented golf carts to get around (CdC is HUGE!) and used them regularly. The kids loved the pool and hot tub at GV119, but the pool at LL19 is MUCH bigger with much more seating around the pool area. Minitas Beach is the only beach in CdC, but it is perfect... warm, clear water, shallow for the kids with breakers keeping the waves to a minimum and providing for easy snorkeling, and water toys for rent (paddle boards, floats, snorkel gear, kayaks, etc...). We also boarded a catamaran there for Catalina Island for more snorkeling and sunbathing. Though we went during President's Week, a pretty busy vacation time in the US, the beach and restaurants never felt too crowded and, despite being largely captive to the resort, prices were not exorbitant.

Thanks you so much Charlie for a vacation none of us will ever forget and one that all of us hope to duplicate (this time at Los Lagos 19) very soon! You promised us a very special vacation and you definitely delivered!

Owner's Response: Lyle-Thank you so much for your generous review! It was a pleasure to be part of your wonderful vacation. Isabelle and Carlos and Karen told me how much they enjoyed your family and appreciated your kindness to them. As I said, I love your sense of adventure as reflected in your activities in and out of Casa de Campo. I look forward to preparing Los Lagos 19 for your next Casa de Campo vacation Thank you again! Charlie
