Vacation Rental Description
This lovely beach house, surrounded by over 1/2 acre of private tropical gardens, overlooks the gentle surf of Playa Cofresi on the North Shore of the Dominican Republic.
Villa Del Caribe is the only private beach-front villa in Playa Cofresi and has wonderful large verandas on two floors which are ideal for parties or simply relaxing with a good book and some rum. You will enjoy our large private swimming pool and thatch-roof cabana in the back yard as well as our smaller sitting pool for non-swimmers or those who prefer to lounge in the water (often with a drink!).
Of course, our two full-time maids will cook, clean and do laundry, so you have to worry about . . . anything!

Cofresi Beach, named after a famous pirate, is about 4.5 km west of Puerto Plata. The coral sand at the beach is cool on the feet and soft to the touch. On one end of the mile long beach are rocks and coral that invite snorkelers. There are usually breakers for body surfing in some areas but the rest is just right for wading. There are no rip tides, no dangerous under tows and no jelly fish at Cofresi.

Playa Cofresi is a wonderful place for those who want a relaxing Dominican experience, but aren't interested in (or are tired of) the all-inclusive scene. Just walk along the beach, and you'll see and meet a wide range of people, all of whom are enjoying simply being at Cofresi. Tourists from the US and Europe mingle easily with Dominicans. On the beach, language is not a barrier -- a simple 'Hola!' and a smile are all that is needed.
There is also a thriving (and often quirky) community of expats who have washed up on the shores of Cofresi. Most of them have come from the US, Canada, Germany and the UK. Just pull up a seat at Chris & Mady's bar, or the bar at the Beach House restaurant and strike up a conversation. Eveyone has a story that they are happy to share over a Margarita or a Rum & Coke. In no time at all, it will be easy to think that you're in the middle of a Jimmy Buffet song!
