Cabarete, Dominican Republic
A spacious 7000 sq ft beach front villa located between the two small towns of Cabarete and Sosua. Tranquility, safety, beauty, and luxury which includes a full-time private maid service. A beautiful master suite with a second floor bedroom with its own private patio and full ocean/beach view. Four additional bedrooms, three with king-sized beds, one with two full-sized beds are located in a separate guest house that is essentially connected to the main villa just a few steps through a beautiful tropical interior/exterior garden. (Six bedrooms total at this villa) Kick your feet back, relax and watch the beautiful Dominican sunrise, relax with a tropical cocktail, cool off in the large private pool, or take in the brilliant sunset as you read a book from the hot tub.
The villa is situated as the very last villa at the end of a gated property, directly on the beach with plenty of grass and palm trees to the west. A beautiful, tropical, floral garden separates the main villa from the immediately adjacent guest house (4 bedrooms), and the entire property is surrounded by palm trees and flowers. A thick fern and palm hedge separates the only neighboring villa on the East side of the property. A separate breakfast patio/terraza with table and chairs provides a shady-side respit in the afternoons with a beautiful view of the blue ocean waters and white-capped waves. Early morning breakfast there is a peaceful retreat if the large pool-side terraza/patio on the west side of the villa is too crowded for you! The villa is beautifully decorated with local/regional artwork, paintings and other interesting "adornos". The beautiful Mediteranian-style villa ceramic floors display artful listello tile accents throughout the villa.
The large "Yoga Room" on the second floor provides a private space for Yoga or meditation, or get everyone together in the media room theater and enjoy the 60" flat screen complete with surround sound!!
A security guard at the front gate and on-site security ensures that your visit to North Shore Villa will be as safe as it is beautiful and relaxing. The best surfing and kite-surfing in the Caribbean is just a short walk down the beach.
The Dominican Republic is known for its beautiful weather, without end, because of its almost year-round warmth and sunshine, some people refer to the Dominican Republic's climate as "endless summer." The temperature on the island remains fairly consistent at around 77 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year. Generally, the whole island is sunny with tropical weather. The change in seasons is determined more by the annual rainfall then by the temperature. May to October are considered the summer months on the Dominican Republic. This is usually the hottest time of year. Highs reach about 87 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, with the nighttime low around 72 degrees Fahrenheit. During the high season, the humidity is low, and there is less rainfall on the island. Evenings are noticeably cooler during November to April in comparison to the summer months.
If your looking for total pampering and being free from all cares personal chef services can be arranged, so who has to worry about cooking?
*A full time maid comes mandatory at low cost of $100 for the entire week!!! (cooks, cleans, makes beds, etc)
For large groups a 2nd maid can be available.
On the resort property, itself, there is a grass-roofed cabana bar and restaurant, Chez Arsenio. Arsenio is an excellent chef, and will make anything you wish.
About 5 kilometers to the East is Cabarete, and there are multiple beach front restaurants and clubs (including an Irish Pub of all things), with table seating on the beach, local musicians, very wide beach, an occasional bonfire, and very interesting people watching. Many of the establishments become “discos” late at night. There are casinos very near by. There is a DVD rental store located on the near side of Cabarete from the villa making access to DVD rental movies convenient. This is a private, peaceful location in a security gated area. The undeveloped land immediately adjacent to Villa Gordon will usually have on display early in the morning, a burro (local celebrity) with his attendant white egrets, an occasional American Kestrel perched high on a branch of an adjacent dead tree, and perhaps the horses that are boarded at the resort for riding on the beach will be grazing there as well.
You can walk to the cabana bar/restaurant to rendezvous with others for a late afternoon tropical beverage, and to eat. This is a small resort area and the beach is also very unpopulated. There are many sails in the sky on windy afternoons as this is a very popular kite surfing area.
The “subdivision” is gated. The guards and maintenance people are the friendliest you will ever meet.

The house is absolutely gorgeous, the maids are delightful and Anne Lazar, The order of a local restaurant. It’s a great help in grocery shopping and organizing things. Unfortunately, we had to fly into Santo Domingo instead of Puerto Plata so our ride was over four hours to get to the Villa. Not so much fun. The hot tub was a star attraction in our group. The beach and grounds were spectacular. There were occasional glitches in the plumbing but these were fixed immediately by the owner. All in all, a delightful place but be sure to fly into Puerto Plata! Ann Riley”
