About the property

3-bedroom/3-bathroom (sleeps 6) private beachfront villa/house with pool

Casa del Mar is a family-friendly 3-bedroom/3-bathroom oceanfront villa, approximately 2,200 square feet, with a spacious yard and relaxing pool area. It is secluded yet secure and close to all amenities. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is the place for you! Case del Mar is located about 40 minutes east of the Puerto Plata airport, about a 15-minute drive from Cabarete and 10-minute drive to Gaspar Hernandez. Housekeeping services are provided with your rental fee three days a week. Our property manager is available for airport transfers (for a fee; cheaper than taking a taxi) and will even stop at a grocery store to get you stocked up before taking you to the villa to get settled in. He is also only a phone call away to drive you anywhere you wish to go throughout your stay. Amazing ocean view, even from inside the villa. There is a lovely pool area with lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas. There are tons of books, games and outdoor space for you to enjoy. A small safe is available if you wish to use it. Massages and other various services are available (will come to the villa) for an extra fee and we have provided an information booklet onsite with info/fees. Case del Mar is in a very safe community, but we provide security from dusk till dawn to ensure our guests feel safe and secure. We also have two amazing cats who live on the property (outside) and take care of a lot of the unwanted rodents and insects in the area. Just unpack and relax!

About Meg Butler

My husband Marcel and I have been to the Caribbean many times and the Dominican Republic has always been one of our favourite places. It has long been a dream for us to live somewhere tropical, and we bought this property from a lovely Canadian couple on our trip to the Puerto Plata area in October 2016. After having looked at property online for over a year and a half we planned to just explore different areas and check out some listings, but we found this amazing little gem and just couldn't pass it up. We are so excited to for this new adventure in our lives!

Meg Butler purchased this villa in 2016

Why Meg Butler chose Espaillat Province

We wanted to be in a safe area that was private and somewhat secluded, yet close to amenities and not too far from the airport. Case del Mar (formerly Casa Linda) was a property we just kept coming back to and we couldn't get it off our minds, so we decided even though we hadn't planned to purchase anything at that time, we just had to put in an offer!

What makes this villa unique

We have spent a couple of months at the villa now and are working hard to make improvements, as we would like to share this paradise with vacationers who share the same desire we do for an amazing beachfront getaway!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of stay: March 2015 - Myself, my wife and our two little boys thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Linda. The weather was gorgeous with a constant breeze off the ocean, hot sunshine, and friendly people. Very private but close enough to the action that Willy can drive you into town should you need groceries, etc. We can't say enough good things about our overall experience!

A place away.... a place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Casa del Mar must be unique in the Dominican Republic. It is beautifully situated on a beach east of Puerto Plata away from the tourist bustle of the major resort centres. For a family vacation and a retirement present to ourselves, the Casa was just perfect. It is well-appointed with great living, eating, cooking and “chilling” space. We especially enjoyed our walks along the beach, amazing morning sunrises and our family “happy hours” on the back terrace overlooking the ocean. A swimming pool with plenty of space and seating with umbrellas to lounge/read/nap is situated on the entrance-side of the house, away from the ocean, where one can also barbecue. Three bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathroom, provided the space and the privacy to make the experience all that much more enjoyable. Would we go back? Without a doubt. With pleasant owners, attentive and kind staff and a comfortable villa in a beautiful setting, the experience was all that we could have wanted.

Great Time at the Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at this property from

3/18/2018 to 3/25/2018. The property was well

appointed and had many luxuries which felt like

I was back in the United States.

The staff was very nice to us and very flexible.

Willy was right there to pick us up at the AIrport

when we arrived. He stopped by a local grocery store

to make sure we were well stocked for our stay.

After arriving at the house we settled in very quickly.

Listening to the crashing of the waves at night before

going to sleep and waking up was just incredible.

The pool was very refreshing after being on the beach.

We were very comfortable in the house and are already

looking forward to a return visit.

If your looking for a quite vacation with your privacy

this property is it for you

If you had to describe Paradise....THIS IS IT!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that the owners, Megan and her husband are extremely helpful and accommodating. They'll do everything to make your stay enjoyable. As for the property, whats not to like. It's located on a quiet road. Your back porch faces the Atlantic Ocean and the back gate drops you on your own personal deserted beach. Most times you can look in either direction down the beach and you'll be the only one standing there. And when you're not feeling up to walking the 10 meters to the beach you can walk 3 meters out your front door and fall into a refreshing pool. If you're looking for a quiet and romantic get away, this is definitely it! But if your looking to bring the kids or friends, the home has plenty of space for everyone. The sounds of the ocean will greet you in the morning and lull you to sleep at night. The open air layout of the house and bathrooms in every room means plenty of space for everyone and no waiting for showers. Nicely located near shopping centers, tourist attractions and eateries means there is always plenty to do. This is my third time here and my wife and I just love it. I find the best part of the day is having a coffee on the back porch staring out at the ocean. Very relaxing and a great place to retreat to escape the maddening crowds. You won't be disappointed.

We return every year!

  • 5 of 5

This visit marked our third annual two-week vacation at Casa del mar (previously Casa Linda), and we enjoyed our stay as always. The location is very private and peaceful, including the beach. Our kids love jumping in the endless waves that roll in all day (and night - excellent background to fall asleep to) and swimming in the pool, soaking up the beautiful sun that hits it from morning to evening. Inside is open concept and spacious with convenient access to the covered outdoor space that flanks the kitchen. Bedrooms are all large and comfortable as well; we stay comfortably with our family of four.

The owners are easy to correspond with and answer all questions promptly, and the hospitality from the people who care for and manage the house makes it feel like home away from home. Our family has certainly enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle, as our little boys constantly talk about 'flying to the beach'.

Looking forward to our next visit!

Tranquilidad y naturaleza

  • 4 of 5

El que quiere descansar y busca la tranquilidad en plena naturaleza encuentra aqui lo que busca.

La propiedad se encuentra en primerissima linea de playa .Durante nuestra estadia el mar era muy revuelto con mucho viento , olas altas y peligroso para nadar.

Willy, su mujer, Cosme e Angelo eran super amables y siempre atentos.

Owner's Response: English version: Those who want to rest and seek tranquility in the middle of nature find here what they are looking for. The property is located on the first line of the beach. During our stay the sea was very turbulent with a lot of wind, high waves and dangerous to swim. Willy, his wife, Cosme and Angelo were super friendly and always attentive. WE RECOMMEND Andrea and Klaus - We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Casa del Mar and that our amazing staff delivered, as usual. Unfortunately, the hurricanes from September 2017 have left the ocean (and beaches) in quite a state and things have yet to settle. There are times when the ocean is fairly quiet and safer to swim in, but there are also periods when the tides are high and the current is strong. We were there for 3 months (October 2017 to February 2018) and experienced major ocean fluctuations during that time. Such is Mother Nature!!
