Villa Suzanna is located within the prestigious Sea Horse Ranch on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, only 15 minutes’ ride from Puerto Plata (POP) international airport.
A tastefully decorated home with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it is ideal for families and groups of friends.
Villa Suzanna is a spacious single-story villa in traditional Caribbean style - with mahogany louvred windows, vaulted ceilings and terracotta tiled floors. The predominant colors throughout are blue and white with a stylish contemporary mix of Indonesian, Indian and local rattan furnishings. There are carefully chosen pictures, baskets of shells, hurricane lamps, maps and other decorative touches which enhance the Caribbean 'beach house' feel.
The large sitting room has 4 floor-to-ceiling windows, white cotton slip-covered armchair sofas and ottoman, and double doors leading to the gazebo and rear garden.
The large master bedroom with king-sized bed, opens directly onto the garden and swimming pool. There is a walk-in closet and brand new bathroom with walk –in shower and separate tub. There are 2 additional bedrooms, one with a pencil-post double bed, the other with twin beds which share a bathroom with shower – also newly renovated. Also available are 2 extra twin beds which can be placed into any of the 3 bedrooms, giving family accommodation or dorm-style for young people.
The kitchen is small but well-equipped with fridge-freezer, stove with 4 gas burners, dishwasher and microwave oven. There is a separate laundry room with automatic washing machine. There are ceiling fans throughout the villa and the 3 bedrooms have airconditioning too. There is cable TV and wi-fi internet.
There is a delightful gazebo overlooking the pool and gardens, furnished comfortably as an outdoor 'living room'. The dining table is also situated here and there is a ceiling fan.
The garden is very large with extensive lawns and affords privacy with beautiful palms and other mature plantings. A gate and path from the rear garden lead to the beach walkway and the sea is visible the moment one steps outside. The 3 private beaches of the Sea Horse Ranch gated community, and beach club are a 2-minute walk from the property.
The attractive free-form pool has a surrounding terrace with loungers and outdoor shower. There is also a charcoal barbecue.
Included in the price are all household linens and towels and the services of a maid, and a small welcome-basket of groceries on the day of arrival. The pool and grounds are maintained by the gardener.
Also included is 1 roundtrip airport transfer per booking, when flying into Puerto Plata (POP) airport. Discounted transfer rates if using other island airports.
Sea Horse Ranch is the most prestigious and secure gated-community on the north coast of the Dominican Republic with some 80 or so villas, some lived in year-round by mainly foreign residents, others renting on long- or short-term basis to Dominican or international families.
Sea Horse Ranch was originally a dairy ranch and has retained a wonderful rural feel, but it also borders the coast and has 4 private beaches.
There are 5 tennis courts; 2 of which are floodlit, and club-house, and an equestrian center. There is excellent 24-hour security, water and power. The private beach club, exclusively for residents, is located right over the water, serving drinks and meals throughout the day.
Villa Suzanna is well located for all sorts of other things - it is a 15-minute drive to Puerto Plata airport (served by American Airlines, United, JetBlue and many charter airlines from around the world) and a 10-minute drive to Cabarete, the world-renowned windsurfing mecca which also has a pretty beach, lively beachside cafes/restaurants and a cosmopolitan clientele. Kite-boarding is also available here. It is a 5-minute drive to the best surfing beach on the north coast; Playa Encuentro where boards may be hired and instruction given.
Sosua is 5 minutes away to the west, with a pretty horseshoe-shaped bay and clear waters for swimming and great snorkeling on the reef. There are good supermarkets and lots of restaurants and bars and an excellent German baker. It is 2½ hours to Samana by car, (famous for whale-watching Jan-March), a scenic and easy drive. Santo Domingo is reached by airconditioned Metro tour buses from Sosúa or by private chartered small plane so a day in the oldest city in the Americas is feasible.
There are 2 renowned golf courses within approximately an hour’s drive of Villa Suzanna in Playa Grande near Rio San Juan to the east, and in Playa Dorada to the west. The Playa Grande course which was designed by Robert Trent Jones is considered by most golfers to be the finest golf course in the Dominican Republic.
