About the property

4 Bedroom Beautiful Home In Casa De Campo! Golf, Beach And Relaxation!

Ideal location for a wonderful vacation experience, a family reunion, or a getaway for any one of the many reasons we have for celebrating life.

An oasis for the weary traveler, this 2 story villa offers the comforts of a home, with the excitement of a tropical vacation, affording the perfect combination: the luxury of privacy and plenty of space for family interaction.

Of modern construction, the villa pays homage to history and the past, with its monumental 20 foot high double doorway, modeled after the Baptistery in Florence, Italy, and the tombs of the pharaohs, and featuring 14 bronze plaques depicting the histories of the island of Hispaniola, the town La Romana (where Casa de Campo is located)and the owning family. In this instance, the lions that guard over the Egyptian tombs were substituted for horses, testament to the owner´s love for the equine. The door itself weighs over 2 tons, and was artistically hand wrought of cast iron and brass by renowned local artist Jose Ignacio Morales, 'El Artistico', responsible for the wrought iron works in the artists´ village of Altos de Chavón, within the grounds of Casa de Campo.

The first floor is ideal for family time and for socializing with friends, with two ample and integrated seating arrangements, a family alcove with television and entertaining system, a casual dining and bar area for six, and a high ceiling which promotes a feeling of expansion and spaciousness and a view of the second floor mezzanine. The furnishings are in shades of whites and neutral tones, enhancing the rich woods and contrasting with the decorative accents and the gleaming terracotta tile flooring, reminiscent of traditional Caribbean homes. Glass walls lead out into the pool and back yard gardens, and a first-hand view of Hole No. 2 of the Links course, designed by famous golf architect Pete Dye.

The formal dining room features an oversized round table that comfortably accommodates 12 in high-back cushioned chairs, with a large Lazy Susan in the center to facilitate meal service and an overhead chandelier for added charm. The adjacent kitchen is modern, with a work island, ample cabinet space, and all the equipment you need to enjoy cooking for the family. The on-site maid can assist with breakfast and light meals in the villa, or you can hire a chef to concoct your desired menus. A half bath is conveniently located nearby to the common areas.

Caribbean life is all about the outdoors and in the center of the ample backyard terrace is a large rectangular pool for swimming laps or for a refreshing dip while sun-bathing. At one end of the pool on a submerged bench there is a whirlpool jet which offers a gentle massage. To the side, a gazebo with built-in seating, a ceiling fan and table for snacks and drinks offers intercom connection with the house staff for any additional assistance required while relaxing in the pool area. A variety of fruit trees, including mangos, avocados, chestnuts and others, make this garden area a special haven to relax and enjoy the tropical breeze. A sleepy hammock under a gourd tree offers the opportunity to read, sleep and catch a few sun rays, and a nearby corner with benches and a table under the fruit trees is a great place to admire the views.

The bedrooms are ample, well appointed and offer a relaxing environment to assure the desired rest after a day of activity in the wonderful resort of Casa de Campo. One guestroom is on the main level; the master bedroom takes up one side of the upstairs while two guestrooms are located on the other side. The decor in each bedroom consists of soft creamy walls, with cottage style oak furniture, highlighted by touches of wood and rattan. The linens are light colored Spanish Matelasse, with a different color scheme in each room and sheer white curtains soften the shades that block out the Caribbean morning sun, so you can sleep till you are fully rested. Each bedroom has generous closet space, air conditioning, and thoughtfully placed lighting. The bathrooms offer tub/shower with glass curtains, mahogany vanities, and modern sinks with stylish fixtures. In the master suite, there are two separate walk-in closets and extra luxuries in the bath include his and her sinks and a whirlpool tub with separate shower. All rooms on the second floor have LCD flat screen televisions in the bedrooms.

In the central mezzanine of the second floor is a bonus family room, seating arrangements, and tables for playing cards or board games. This is a great gathering spot or to keep the kids entertained.

The entire villa including the pool area has internet which is available free of charge as a welcome amenity to its visitors.

The villa is ideal for celebratory occasions, with its ample gardens and seating areas, and for enjoying time with your family and friends. Come and join us for a wonderful Caribbean vacation!

About Jeannette Sanchez-Lopez

Owned by a family from Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic. We are a Dominican-American family composed of a third-generation native of La Romana, and a New York bred Dominican, with almost 40 years of experience in the travel industry. I manage my villa like a boutique hotel and like to pamper my clients and anticipate their needs so that their experience is memorable. Having worked at Casa de Campo for my entire career, both in Operations and as Vice-President of Sales & Marketing, I am recently retired. I know the ins and outs of the resort, and combine this with a passion for service and the hospitality that Dominicans are famous for. My Time is Yours!

Jeannette Sanchez-Lopez purchased this villa in 2000

Why Jeannette Sanchez-Lopez chose Casa de Campo

Home built in Casa de Campo due to the resort´s unique combination of natural beauty, sporting life, social life and relaxing atmosphere. Our family has been a part of the owning company´s founding history, dating back to the early twentieth century and it felt natural to invest in this wonderful resort and continue to be a part of this diverse community.

The monumental 20 ft. double doorway front entrance is reminiscent of the Baptistery in Florence, with bronze plaques commemorating the history of the island, the town of La Romana and our own family landmarks.

What makes this villa unique

Our home has high ceilings and plenty of tall glass windows to allow the flow of natural air and sunlight and beautiful traditional red clay Caribbean floors to conserve the cool temperature of the rooms. Lots of lawn and garden space to enjoy the tropical climate under shady fruit trees or recharge your energy under the wonderful sun.

Great house and Jeannette was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We booked with Jeannette after a nightmare experience with another owner/property manager where they completely went dark and were unresponsive until three days before we were supposed to arrive...only to cancel our reservation due to damage to their house from previous guests. Needless to say, I was scrambling to find another house - we have three little kids and had booked expensive flights. Jeannette was the most accommodating, helpful, and kind partner. She not only responded to my requests within minutes, she also worked long and late to book reservations, buy groceries for us, and arrange transportation. She made us feel at ease after a very unsettling experience. The house was great - the rooms were big and great for large families. The staff was very friendly although I will say you need to know some Spanish as it would have been very hard to communicate without.

The pool was fantastic and grounds were beautiful. The location of the house was ideal - closer to the beach than the marina which was great because for kids - the beach is the place to be. The hotel pool was fine - more of an adult scene but totally kid friendly if you're kids are self sufficient and are happy playing in the water. Overall - our stay was great. The house was lovely and the owner was definitely a highlight. Bring lots of cash - small bills. Tips are given to everyone and expected. Also - we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. A lot of the windows didn't have screens - which I'm sure is a not a big deal to the locals, but for those used to screens - wear bug spray!!

Great Villa for whole family

  • 4 of 5

Set up of home was great having my elderly Mother and 4 kids. The pool is Perfect for kids to play. The two ladies working were nice and unobtrusive. My kids loved the prepared meals. Groceries very expensive though. Location is a bit far from beach and the golf carts were gas, loud and slow. Jeannette is extremely helpful and responsive. She returned calls immediately and addressed all issues, mostly very minor, in record time. She went above and beyond what I would expect by attempting to find and install a higher toilet seat for my elderly mother. It did not fit but the fact is she did not have to go so out of her way and it was much appreciated. I would rent this villa again hands down. Jeannette helped plan our activities and dinners. Restaurants are mostly very good although the ones at Marina all overrated in my opinion. The staff at Casa all nice and helpful. We had not issues at all. Jeannette is trustworthy, hard working and very kind and gracious. I would trust my vacation to her.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

We planned a quick family getaway and decided in this beautiful property, we had an amazing time from the moment we arrived at the airport and had a driver waiting for us that Jeannette recommended and when we arrived at the house we were greeted by 2 beautiful women that are a part of the beautiful stay at Villa Portal they prepared an amazing meal for us and i mean amazing they cooked everyday for us and made us feel comfortable. Jeannette from the 1st phone call was very friendly and accomodated me with all the comforts from groceries to menus for all of our meals she even purchased everything for us and left receipts and a binder explaining everything, the house is very comfortable bedroom downstairs is spacious just like the upstairs, the entire house has a conversation area and is great for entertaining We just loved it Casa Campo in whole is just a beautiful place to stay

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 (children ages 13-23) spent Christmas/New Years 2015 at Villa Del Portal and enjoyed every minute. The home is very well maintained and spacious. Jeannette was extremely helpful during the planning process and Suleica and Anna Maria took such good care of us while we were there. The location of the home is perfect. A short walk to the hotel and running trail and a short golf cart or bicycle ride to tennis, shooting school, golf, beach, Marina and Altos de Chevon. There is something for everyone at the resort and we tried it all but the best part of our trip was the time we spent at Villa Del Portal having fun in the pool, playing cards, relaxing and sharing delicious meals together. I would definitely recommend this rental.

We can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We can't wait to return to Villa Del Portal. Our time there was too short.

Jeannette, the owner, was extremely gracious. She helped make our vacation memorable with her recommendations for sporting activities, dining and excursions.

Zuleika, the housekeeper, is a treasure. She is always upbeat, happy and smiling. Zulieka is just a joy to be around.

I could go on forever...lovely open floor plan, lovely pool area, lovely air conditioned dining area and bedrooms with private dressing area and bath. There are no negatives!

We look forward to returning soon.
