13 woman spent a week in this beautiful home, relaxing and being pampered by Nury and Naty. It was a perfect retreat and respite. Olga, the home owner, is responsive, kind and genuinely wants your time in her home to be special. We rented three cars and drove from Santo Domingo on a Monday afternoon. The traffic was interesting and not for the faint hearted. It took us a little over 3 hours. However, the drive back on Sunday was much shorter and much less traffic. The house is beautiful and sits behind a 7 foot wall that is was watched by Melvin. It was quiet and felt remote, though it’s 10 minutes from a quaint little town one direction and 10 from a beautiful vineyard that sits in a cliff, overlooking the Caribbean, the other. I highly recommend making a reservation at the restaurant here and having lunch. The cerviche was delicious! Aside from this outing, we never left the house except for walks on the beach and a few quick grocery runs. The floating dock and deck were a favorite. The water was warm and crystal clear. We enjoyed sea kayaks and brought snorkeling gear....swam and watched the fishermen. Naty and Nury quickly learned our habits and happily worked to anticipate our needs. We never asked for anything! The house is comfortable and beautiful. It runs mostly off a generator so we occasionally lost power momentarily and took lukewarm showers most of the week (before we realized that the hot water is very slow to come, but it does come.) We found this home and it’s location a perfect place to get away and spend time with loved ones....I can’t wait to take my children and husband back. Thanks Olga, for sharing your home!”
the ultimate in relaxation
We just got home from a week at Palmar de Ocoa and we want to go back! For seven days we did not see one other tourist, we only left the house by car once...all other excursions were made by boat. We swam (and swam and swam) in the clear Caribbean waters and in the pool, we fished, went tubing, read, played board games and spent as many minutes on the gazebo over-looking the water, staring into the horizon, as we possibly could. Olga was the most incredibly gracious host. She stocked the kitchen for our entire visit and was available for all questions about day trips and activities throughout our stay. She is simple wonderful. Nury and Nati prepared menus for each meal in advance (our kids are still talking about their Nutella filled pancakes and surprise desserts) and Melvin took us out on the boat daily. It was a week of total relaxation -- all you need to pack for your stay is bathing suits, sunscreen (some bug spray) and pjs. Enjoy! ”
Words can't begin to describe what a special destination this place is. We traveled there with a large group of 14 (6 adults and 8 kids). We stayed for 7 nights and only left the property to boat, fish and snorkel. It is very remote...and you feel completely off the grid - which was much needed for our busy and over scheduled crew. Olga, the owner, was amazing and went to great lengths to make our stay everything we imagined plus more. She has an amazing staff of four that took care of our every desire at the drop of a dime. We all cried - as did they - when it was time to say goodbye. In fact, they all were up at 4 AM to send us off and made sure we had a giant breakfast before our departure. I could go on and on about the staff. They MADE the trip for us. We can't wait to plan our next visit there. Olga, thank you again for the amazing hospitality! ”
