The property is lovely, right on the beach

May 1, 2016

Really lovely house, right on the beach, secluded location, 3 other houses on the property, the gardens all around the house are well maintained, the pool and pool area are also well maintained – pool chlorine level was low – I prefer a saline pool so was wary of a chlorine pool and had no problem swimming in this pool , each bedroom with it’s own bath, nice living room area and great kitchen. At night the sound of the surf is right there, the rain on the roof – if it rains – is magical. If you are looking for a totally secluded get away to write a book, decompress, reconnect with the missed sleep/a book you want to read/sun/sand/surf, this was a lovely getaway for us. The water is a lovely blue/light green and bathtub warm. The body surfing was great. If you plan to come here staying at the pool on the property is the best way to go;. You can rent boats and guides to take you to these places. We opted to have a chef prepare local cuisine, and it is well worth it, while we were there the locals who fish from the beach area/surrounding waters showed us a lobster and inquired if we wanted to purchase it, not being spanish speakers I said “Pasquala” our chef’s name, and the following evening that lobster was on the BBQ for us.

The owner, Vincent, is very responsive. The staff at the house is interested in making sure your stay is as you would expect, Enjoy this lovely slice of paradise

An unique and wonderful vacation!

Mar 14, 2016

We just returned from a week long stay at Villa Bahia Rincon. Our great experiences began even before we booked the trip, thanks to the owner’s responsiveness to our inquiries. Vincent kindly arranged for our auto rentals (SUVs are a must) and for dinners prepared by Pasquala. Our group of 8 (four couples) arrived late due to delays flying out of JFK but once again Vincent arranged for Diogenes to meet us on the road into the villa, and dinner was waiting when we arrived. We loved everything about the property — right on the beautiful Playa Colorado beach. We saw very few people on the beach during our stay, but we happily purchased fish and lobster from local fishermen. The beaches are absolutely beautiful and pristine. The villa is an open-air design on both levels. We spent most of our time on the beach or around the pool. The staff is very warm and dedicated local people. Diogenes was very helpful and patient with our limited Spanish, and brought us a few items we requested on his motorbike. He and Dulis kept the house very clean and orderly during our stay. We recommend the Lindo supermarket in Las Terrenas, and lunch on the beach in Las Galeras. We recommend it to anyone seeking an off-the-beaten-track Caribbean villa vacation.

Trip of a lifetime!!!!!

Jan 16, 2016

I’ve been waiting to vacation here and add my review to the others! This was a family trip of a lifetime. My wife and I and our 5 children (oldest age 13) traveled here for a family vacation. Everything was not just as expected and described here, but BETTER! I have never seen such an incredible, natural paradise. We visited Playa Rincon and spent some time before returning to our “private” beach which is unparalleled. Dulis and Diogenes are gems and couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. Winter time was very pleasant with the temperature and no need for air conditioning. We found the last bit of the drive very interesting and had a van but was no problem. The local cuisine was prepared one night and we found our children eating 2 and 3 helping of Pasquala’s dinner! I didn’t realize that the homes along this area are actually behind a guard gate and that we would have a night watchman. Security was never a question or issue. There are some local farmers that pass through and I had left some sandals on the beach that mysteriously disappeared but can only blame myself for that. That loss was the only issue that came up and didn’t disrupt any of the enjoyment. I could only wish to be able to visit this location again!

Great villa by the ocean

Dec 27, 2015

We spent there one week with our family. The house is ideal for 6-8 persons and it was slightly too big for the three of us (but of course it did not bother us). The location is just perfect. right on a secluded beach. There is a very nice private swimming pool right on the terrace overlooking the ocean. Although there are some other houses in this guarded area you have an impression being completely lost on (luxury) island. The property is very well maintained. It’s 20 minutes to the nearest decent shop on a bumpy road, but we were very well informed by the owner about the infrastructure around. We really would like to come back there again and definitely recommend it to our friends.

Perfect!

House, staff, location – delightful! be sure to rent an suv and nothing will stand in the way of a perfect vacation.

Villa Bahia rincon

May 21, 2015

Our week at thi5s villa was one of the best of our lives. We wanted private and secluded, and that’s exactly what we got. Gorgeous beach, we had it to ourselves all week. The home is beautiful and the staff are so accommodating. Dulis is a great cook and we enjoyed eating local traditional foods! Diogenes took care of everything for us, and he does such a great job with the flowers, they were absolutely beautiful this time of year. We hiked to playa Rincon one day which was really fun, but the private beach at the villa was our favorite. The owner was easy to work with and answered my many questions quickly and accurately! Looking forward to our next visit.

Exceptional Location and House

Mar 23, 2015

The house is comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed, and the staff were attentive to just the right extent. But the real draw is the location. Playa Colorado is a perfect beach and we regularly had it to ourselves. In fact we saw more horses than people in four days at the villa. If you’re looking to get away from things this place is ideal and well worth the somewhat adventurous drive. Excursions to the other beaches in the area (Rincon, Fronton), and fresh seafood, were facilitated by the concierge with no hassle. Living in Santo Domingo, we have covered a lot of ground in this country, and definitely intend to go back here. Enjoy.

“Nous cherchions une villa au bord de la mer..

Mar 16, 2015

“Nous cherchions une villa pour notre famille (6 adultes et un bébé) au calme et proche de la plage. Bahia Rincon à correspondu à nos souhaits au delà de nos espérances. Il s”agit d”une villa exceptionnelle à tous points de vue. Très belle vue, 2 plages sous nos yeux et un calme parfait. Personnel de maison et propriétaires très attentifs. A conseiller…”

An ideal place for a family vacation

Review Submitted: August 11, 2011 Date of Stay: July 2011
We have just spent an ideal week at “Villa Bahia Rincon”. We had arrived with our two children and Diogenes welcomed us the first evening. Diogenes is the Butler who accomodated us and gave us the first explanations for using the villa properly. We discovered the perfectly equipped vast rooms. The following morning, we were totally flabbergasted when, on opening the windows, we were able to enjoy the view on the sea and could lay our first steps on this extraordinary virgin nature leading to a succession of little wild beaches right in front of us. We then understood why we had proceeded (after some efforts, i must say!) to this magical place.
The rest of our stay was a pure dream: The villa is extremely pleasant and convenient, and the staff is gentle and discreet. We spent our time bathing in a warm sea ona “virginal” beach or around the beautiful swimming pool, reading a good book and sunbathing. We also enjoyed walking particularly along the coast as far as the famous Playa Rincon. We also appreciated the boat trip to Playa Fronton and the pic-nic on the beach. We felt protected by Yuni, the night watchman who was in charge of the house security together with Diogenes ans Odalys, the maid, who where working during the day.
A few recommendations must be given to the future travellers. The last miles leading to the villa are quite difficult, that’s why it’s better to rent a SUV (4-wheel drive). Most necessities are to be bought in Samana or at Las Terrenas. Yet, shopping can also be done at Las Galeras’ grocery. For fruits and vegetables, ask Diogenes and fresh fish will be directly proposed to you by some fisherman at the villa for a barbecue (how tasty these fresh lobsters!!!). Don’t forget a few films, DVDs, games…or you might feel quite far from the village in the evening, although you’ll have the opportunity to go to the restaurant in Las Galeras, once or twice.
We really enjoyed our holidays at “Villa Bahia Rincon” and will certainly recommend it to our friends for their holidays.

The Beautiful Villa Bahia Rincon

Date of Stay: April 2011
Over the past years, we have always tried to take my vacation in both relaxing and exotic places. However, never have we been so blown away by such a beautiful scenery.
Before we arrived, the owner kindly recommended us different excursions to do during our stay. We had a boat come to the beach of the Villa one day to bring us on an excursion to visit the coast of the island -breathtaking. Another day, we took a boat to visit mangroves.
Whenever we decided to spend the day at the villa, were the only ones on the beach, and got to enjoy its peacefulness.
Moreover, if we left for daily excursions, we always came back at sunset and got to sit by the pool. If we needed any assistance, two domestics were there to help us. The owner also often called to make sure everything went ok, something we really appreciated.
One thing I would recommend though is having a car to travel around. For the rest, we loved being isolated from the city, and hearing the calming noise of the ocean before going to bed. The Villa itself was beautiful, and always very clean.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to experience paradise ! This was a trip we will never forget.

Lovely Week

Date of Stay: March 2011
We have stayed for a lovely week with family and friends in your beautiful home. We loved it all -the beach, the pool, the long walks. We wish we knew a little more spanish so we could communicate better, yet appreciated all the help. It is difficult to return home, yet we go back with good memories and lovely tans. Thank you !

Super Impressed

Date of Stay: February 2011
I was super impressed with this rental home and staff. it’s the best lot on the beach and the professional staff took care of every we need. This was the best family vacation we have had so far and my only fear is that we won’t ever be able to top to it!

It as been a privilege for us to stay one month in this very special place. Having a house that wheelchair accessible was definitively a bonus. Odalys and Diogenes are a delightful team and are certainly wonderful
ambassadors for this beautiful country. We thank you from teh bottom of our canadian hearts

Une maison de rêve

Le  09/01/2011  – Mlle adele t. –  (France)
Une maison de rêve dans un paysage magnifique et surprenant, des vacances qu’on n’oublira jamais et qu’on espère organiser de nouveau très bientôt.”

Un site exclusif

Le  09/08/2010  – Monsieur Alain B.  (France)
Nous avons passé trois semaines dans ce lieu exceptionnel. La maison est très belle et le site vraiment exclusif. Le personnel est impeccable. Destination idéale pour se reposer et découvrir autrement ce pays, même avec de jeunes enfants (2-5-8-13 ans). Excellente adresse à conserver et à conseiller. Une voiture de type 4×4 est indispensable. Si possible prendre des leçons d”espagnol car sans cela l”échange avec les Dominicains est plus compliqué car ils ne parlent pas plus l”anglais que le français.”

“spectacular view!!”

Date of stay: July 2010 “We spent two weeks in villa bahia rincon and enjoyed it as much as we could.
The house was better than what we could see in the pictures. The house is clean, very easy going and beautiful!!! The rooms are big with very nice bathrooms and a lot of space to put away clothes and stuff. Everything worked without problem. The best place in the house is the pool area and the spectacular view you have from every room in the house. We went with four kids (9,7,4 years and a baby) and they went from the beach to the pool from 8am to 7pm !!! We also went walking (25/30 minutes) to playa Rincon
(unbelievable beach!!!!) or if not we went in the rented car. You have many, many things to do: we went to cascada del limon and to Las Terrenas… but we preferred to stay and enjoy the house, the pool and the “private beach!!!”).
The owner (with tons of patience) answered the millions of questions we asked before we got there. The people that work in the house are very friendly! They tried to help in anything we needed! We highly recommend the place and the house!! We were very lucky to find this house!!!!!”

Wonderful vacation

Date of Stay: June 2010
The vacation was wonderful! The combination of a pristine secluded setting and a spectacular villa was all we could hope for. We have rented villas throughout the world and many in the Caribbean and were very favorably impressed with all yours had to offer. We hope to be back! Odalys and Diogenes were incredibly conscientious workers and a pleasure to deal with. They maintained the villa at a very high standard and were so helpful in getting us situated. They had much patience with our rudimentary spanish and aimed to please in every way. Diogenes helped us buy fish from the local fisherman and set up horseback riding right out the front door. As an avid gardener with a very large garden of my own, I was very impressed with the landscaping around the house and the diligence with which Diogenes maintained it in prime form. Odalys insured that the house was spotless and in addition was very warm and welcoming to us. She invited us to a family celebration and even brought our teenagers home with her at the end of one day to meet her own teenage sons and to go fruit picking at her family farm. It was a memorable experience for them and forced them to practice their Spanish in an ideal situation. The beaches right out the door are spectacular and the short walk to Rincon was one we enjoyed both for its lushness as well as the beautiful beach we encountered once there. The car rental with Patricia was easy and very satisfactory. Thanks again for making your villa available. Eva Grill
