“Amzing Place and Perfect Stay”
I can't express how pleased we (group of 4 guys) were with this decision to stay at Vila Harty. Shirley and Ana were great with setting everything up and answering any questions we had. The maid, Lily and the caretakers/guards Luis and Cisco were always there for us too. Make sure you ask for their help (more below) because they will make your vacation alot smoother. Also make sure you tip them well, they do a great job to ensure you are safe and comfortable. Check in was easy and we had no issues at all throughout our stay. The property itself is a bit outdated so dont expect luxury accomodations. Still, it has everything you need and is very spacious. I was a bit confused with the living arrangements as explained online so Ill try and explain here. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms (each queen) connected to living area and kitchen which connects to outside and pool bridge with stairs on each side going down to the pool. Downstairs has a king bedroom and another bedroom with twin beds. All 4 rooms have their own full private bath with shower. Inside, you cannot access upstairs from downstairs and vice versa but all have easy outside access to the pool. It is all convenient and we had a lot of fun at the pool, which is huge and all to yourself.... cannonballs off the bridge, football and volleyball etc.... good times. The location could be a negative but was a plus for us. it is a 5 minute drive to cabarate beach which is the busy part. The villa is in a quiet part and we loved being secluded when we wanted to be with private beach and pool and then taking a short 5 minute cab ride to cabarete. Some may not like that. Also, we tried to negotiate cab rides (and we speak fluent spanish) but no dice. Standard rate is about US $10 each way to cabarate, $20 each way to sosua, and $40 to airport. Still very cheap when split by 4 people. This is key--- when calling a cab from the house, ask cisco or luis to give the address. We all spoke spanish but cab drivers and delivery guys could never find us right away because there are little tricky directions that we could not communicate accurately. Trust me, much easier to just have them speak. Also, starting the BBQ, i highly recommend no matter how good you think you are, ask Luis or Cisco for help. They will get you started in minutes no joke. Also, biy groceries at the supermarket for breakfast so Lily can make for you. It is onky $10 total which isnso worth it. You can tell her what time and she will have everything ready for you. Saves a whole lit of time. Especially on weekdays when all the restaurants nearby are closed for breakfast. You could also make the trip to cabarate for breakfast but we preferred to eat in and then hit the beach and pool for the late morning early afternoon then go to town for lunch and/or dinner. Up to you though. Last tip which is obvious, bring bug spray and extra bug spray. Thanks again, we all had a blast and are already hoping to plan our next trip back soon. For anyone who is considering this villa for their vacation ... dont bother looking elsewhere. You won't be disappointed. *** In my opinion, the best room is the Queen room on the left, not the king downstairs. The twin room is the least favorite and the beds were not the best. But all rooms are very comfy and convenient***
Response from the owner Thank you Marvin, so happy to hear that you and your friends had such a great time. Also, thank you for the shout out for our staff, they are the best, we agree. I will pass on your kind words to them. Hope to see you back sometime soon.
“total privacy was just what we wanted”
this villa is perfect to get away from it all, six of us had an amazing week enjoying the pool,bbq. the beach and the staff was great Louis catered to our every whim,Lily was always cleaning but sorta in the background so hardly noticeable that she was there which was great .Francisco always there and ready when we came home late from cabarete. we have done so many resorts it was nice to change the pace to meet our own schedule. dealing with Shirley and Judy was also an easy experience i would recommend this villa to anyone we will definitely return
We had a wonderful week in Cabarete. The villa was private and secure (night and day watchman), so we could focus on having fun while there and away from the property. LOVED the pool. Close enough to "city center" (just a road passing through town, really), without all of the noise and fuss.
We loved Villa Harty so much that we returned for a second visit within 2 years. The staff is amazing and the home is beautiful! This villa allows for the best of both worlds. I loved waking up to beatiful private grounds each morning,hearing the ocean surf in the background,and relaxing in the lanai with a cup of tea. We strolled out to the private beach or chose to head to nearby areas for more excitement. Cabarete is a short 7-10 minute ride by car and has food, shops,and entertainment. Cabarete caves are only 5 minutes away, and both Mama Iguana and Outback Safari will come to the house for excusion pick up/drop off.Sosua has a great beach ..snorkling,food and vendors and is only 20 minutes away. Some days we relaxed at the villa enjoying the beach and pool, and other days we ventured out. The neighborhood is safe and the house is always attended by Lile, Louis, and Fransisco. They attended to all of our needs. Lile did our breakfast dishes and will cook for you for a small extra fee. She even did our laundry while we were out and about. There is a small amssage parlor on the corner where we each had a massage because the rates were so inexpensive. The owner only charged $20.00 for an hour. It's not fancy but it is clean and the massages were great! Shirley the owner is fantastic and will work with you to make sure that your needs are met. She works closely with Judy (the manager) and together they handle any issues that arise. Seriously, for the rates that are charged, you cannot find a better deal. Our young adult sons enjoyed this trip so much the first time that we all agreed we had to go back. Our second visit was as awesome as the first. We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Great location...far enough to relax and close enough to play!!
An affordable week in paradise made possible. Peaceful & secluded, quiet beach walks steps away, large luxurious pool, servants 24/7, on observation tower overlooking ocean, 4 large a/c bedrooms comfortably sleep 8- all with private baths, nearby village with lively bar and restaurant strip, available chef service, and all only a 20 minute straight line drive from Puerto Plata airport.
“Steve and Bobbi”
We had a fantastic time at Villa Harty. The weather was beautiful and the walks on the beach everyday were awesome. The villa offered a private chef that we took advantage of for a couple of our meals. The food the chef prepared was excellent. The staff at the villa were friendly and attended to all our needs. It was a short drive to the village of Cabarete where there are plenty of beach restraunts and bars. I would definately recommend the Villa Harty to anyone planning on vacationing in the DR. Ps. We loved everything about this place and plan on going back in the future.
“Fabulous Time at Villa Hardy”
We really enjoyed our week at Villa Harty. The weather was fabulous which made the pool and amenities very enjoyable. Each day we walked on the beach and enjoyed the beautiful view. The accommodations were great and very suitable for 8 adults. We had our own private maid and grounds keeper which were both very attentive and accommodating. We also used the chef for two days and enjoyed being pampered with delicious meals. We went to the village nightly for either meals or drinks and had a great time. There was a wide variety of places to choose from and live entertainment at some of the bars. We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend this location to others and hope to return to this piece of paradise in the future.
Yes, you're in a depressed area but the home & grounds are beautiful, spacious and well equipped although dated mechanically. The neighborhood appears safe. And its also only minutes to the nearby village's bar/restaurant/shops district which is fun, safe & inexpensive. Driving there is can be challenging but certainly exciting. The huge pool and beach are awesome & private & secluded.
What a fabulous villa!! I spent a week there with friends and we all enjoyed the beautiful/lush grounds, the amazing pool, gorgeous beach -- not to mention the incredible/spaceous home with it's outstanding and friendly staff that were more than happy to assist us with whatever we needed. The villa is beautifully decorated and equipped and offers an outstanding gathering spot at the covered lanai overlooking the pool. The bedrooms are huge -- and each with it's own bath! The town of Cabarete (only a few miles down the road) is charming and loaded with outstanding restaurants and bars all situated on the spectacular beach. Such a relaxing, peaceful week in a gorgeous home -- in a gorgeous setting. I will definitely return to Villa Harty.
“Great vacation home for all!”
This fabulous vacation home includes everything you might want & need if you plan on taking a trip to the Dominican Republic- it has a great location which is merely seconds away from a beautiful and secluded beach, yet the villa is also only minutes away from town and necessary supplies, outdoor adventures, public beaches, and the like (and is only approx. a 25 min drive from the international airport); the house staff are great & very friendly, and Shirley (and Judy locally) are always also willing to help or provide whatever you may need; the house and property itself are beautiful and spacious, and it was always a pleasure & comfort to return home to them, and there are so many other positive things I could say about the place and experience as well. I went with a group of six travelers, and there was plenty of space for all of us and more (we didn't even use a portion of the house), so the villa is definitely comfortable for almost any group size. With that said, our group did spend most of the time outdoors, (of course this is what we really went for!) and we could never get enough of lounging by the luxurious pool, of playing games in the lovely, cozily-shaded veranda, and more. The only concern I can think of is that in the evening, as another traveler also said, you should make sure to bring some bug spray with you as there can be mosquitos all around when you are outside anywhere in the DR (luckily, though, there were very few pests actually in the house itself)! In short, though, let me just say that setting up our Villa Harty vacation was easy to arrange and everything about the location was excellent, and I think I can safely speak for all of my group when I say that each of us had a wonderful time and were very thankful for everything that Shirley did for us. I guarantee that you will have a fantastic time if you come here, and that you, like I already do, will wish you could come back again as soon as possible!
