Villa Leone is located in an exclusive, gated, secure group of four villas (Villas Paraiso) located 2 miles east of the center of Cabarete. Cabarete is located 20 minutes from the Puerto Plata International airport (POP).
The beach is at your door...literally! If you enjoy surfing, boogie boarding, windsurfing or kite boarding, you need not leave the beach in front of the villa. The waves and wind are great.
Riding a horse through the surf is also no problem. We will bring the horses to the villa. All that you have to do is get on and ride down the beach or into the mountains nearby.
Villa Flamingo; a similar 3 bedroom beachfront villa, is located directly nexty door and can be rented together with Villa Leone if a larger group is being considered.
Other Activities: Four-Wheeling on Beach, River Trips, Helicopter Rides
If you enjoy golf, there is a world class golf course only 45 minutes away at Playa Grande.
The decision to rent a car is, of course, yours. It is recommended but not absolutely necessary. If you are comfortable walking for 40 minutes down the beach, you will be in the middle of the town of Cabarete. Rides to or from the villa can be obtained by walking out to the road, raising your hand, and catching a ride on a local motoconcho, or motorcycle. They will quickly transport you from town to the villa for 20-30 pesos (less than $1). Of course, taxis are always available if you do not like the idea of riding second seat on a motorbike (I do all the time). Danny, a local taxi driver, is also available for $125/day to drive you and translate for shopping or looking into a possible real estate acquisition.
About Frank Leone
Hello Prospective Guests, We rent our villa to a very select group of people who appreciate that Villa Leone is our 2nd home and respect that. We treat all of our guests like family and do everything to insure that their time at Villa Leone will be all that they hope it will be and more. I have owned Villa Leone for 14 years. It is truly a 2nd home. I also have owned Villa Flamingo, next door since 2011 and Villa Belvedere, behind Villa Flamingo since 2014. Our prices and policies have been carefully adjusted over the years to insure the best value and experiences for our guests. As you can see from our many and varied reviews, all of our guests are well tended to and have enjoyed all that Villa Leone, Cabarete and the surrounding area has to offer. We hope to see you on the beach very soon! Ciao, Frank
Frank Leone purchased this villa in 2005
Why Frank Leone chose Cabarete
Villa Leone is by far the best 5 bedroom oceanfront villa available for rental in Cabarete. Villa Leone has recently been selected by Homeaway to be featured on their exclusive Luxury Rentals From Homeaway. Only 5% of all Homeaway worlwide listings were selected to form this exclusive group of vacation homes available for rental. If you need anymore reasons, the infinity edge pool, private waterfall, Treehouse, private beach, sculpture garden, round swinging bed, beachfront bohio and beachfront patio are just a few other reasons. Ciao, Frank
What makes this villa unique
Very Unique Rooftop 'Treehouse'. Oceanfront Roofed Porch. Oceanfront Infinity Pool Oceanfront Hot Tub Private outdoor round swinging bed. Unique Sculpture Garden directly on the beach featuring David and Rocky! Dining Room seating for 12. Very comfortable expansive custom made livingroom sofa. Private 3rd floor suite with two very private balconies. WHEN DECIDING ON WHICH VILLA TO RENT, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE VILLA HAS A DIESEL GENERATOR BACK UP POWER AND AUTOMATIC TRANSFER SWITCH. THIS VILLA DOES. IT IS A SIGNIFICANT EXPENSE TO INSTALL A 20 KW DIESEL GENERATOR AND MAINTAIN IT IN GOOD OPERATING CONDITION, SO, MANY VILLAS RELY ONLY UPON BATTERIES AND INVERTERS OR LITTLE PORTABLE GENERATORS THAT DIE AFTER AN HOUR RUNNING AND CAN NOT RUN THE AIR CONDITIONING. THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT THE BATTERIES DISCHARGE AFTER AN HOUR OR SO AND YOU ARE LEFT WITHOUT LIGHTS OR AIR CONDITIONING. IT IS VERY COMMON TO HAVE POWER OUTAGES IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. IT'S BEST TO BE SURE AND STAY IN A VILLA WITH A DIESEL GENERATOR. SECURITY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT WHEN CHOOSING A VILLA. THE ONLY 3 VILLAS THAT HAVE SECURITY IN THE COMPLEX ARE VILLA LEONE. VILLA FLAMINGO AND VILLA BELVEDERE. ALWAYS ASK YOUR POTENTIAL HOST WHO PROVIDES THEIR SECURITY AND IS IT 24 HRS.
