About Eduardo

Hello! I’m Eduardo, the owner of Villa Tatagua in beautiful and tropical Punta Cana Resort and Club.

I am a retired US civil engineer and general contractor and know what it is like to live a stress-filled life in the hustle and bustle of a large city. I had vacationed in the Dominican Republic many times in the past and always found the beautiful beaches, friendly people and tropical scenery so relaxing and inviting. I always found it hard to leave when the vacation was over and couldn’t wait until I could once again return. When I retired, I decided to make a change: I turned one of my favorite vacation spots into my retirement home and am so happy I did!

I bought this Villa 6 years ago and spent several months remodeling it to what it is today…a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, spacious, sun-filled Villa facing hole 2 of La Cana Golf Course and a short walk to Playa Serena, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I named the home Villa Tatagua in honor of a beautiful beachfront property my parents owned in Cuba.

I have loved every minute of this new life! It is a pleasure getting to know our guests and helping them turn their dream vacation into a reality. Many of our wonderful guests have returned year after year and we have a spotless 5-star review from 20 guests and counting!

We will help make your vacation truly memorable. Leave your cares behind and enjoy Paradise!

Eduardo purchased this villa in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Eduardo,



We are having a lovely time.



Everything is wonderful... my husband and the two boys have been golfing nearly every day and loving it! Adrianna's meals have been wonderful and Chiciquito is also so pleasant and wonderful. We watched USA vs Belgium World Cup at the Westin on Tuesday which was also fun except for the USA loss:(



Everything fantastic. My one daughter and I are going to try some shopping in the San Juan shopping center once we figure out transportation.



Best and thank you for checking in,



Tina

Thank you,

Your own all inclusive property!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes internationally through VRBO and I can assure this is excellent. Eduardo obviously cares about the people who stay at his property and will check in. Having the staff of Rosa and Chiquitico was well worth it. We only ended up eating twice out for dinner because the food at the home was so good. It was like having a restaurant in your home. I did research Punta Cana until my head hurt. I really considered an all inclusive but there were things in reviews that I just wasn't sure about - especially food. Staying here is like your own private all inclusive. The owner does speak English - with the staff you may learn to learn some frases - download Google Translate to translate from English to Spanish. I did do all my meal planning before so I would t have problems with communication and we were a group of 7 - teenagers, parents, and grandparents so there were picky eaters. However Rosa was such an excellent cook and had variety no one complained. My husband's birthday was during the week and Chiquitico got him a delicious gate. Beach and pool at the Club were fantastic. Both shade and sun. Seaweed only seems to be a bigger issue when there is a hard rain - there is a barrier although not foolproof with storms. We did the buggies and Hoyo Azul at the Scape park - Eduardo can help with transport. We did the catamaran to Saona and the natural pool with starfish. In hindsight I would have done a private tour. It was with a group with others from hotels which also led to every worker involved with the tour to have his/her handout which was overwhelming. Eduardo can help you I'm sure get you the best tours. You are crazy not to rent this place!

Owner's Response: Owner's Response: I am so glad your family had a nice time. Thank you for the kind review. It always makes us happy when our Guests expectations have been met especially when you arrive having already experienced an all-inclusive resort. That pretty much summed it up! As always, you were a pleasure to work with. Please give my regards to the abuelos, I really enjoyed talking to them that afternoon by the pool. Thank you! You are welcome back any time!!

Simply awesome

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! The house is gorgeous with giant windows overlooking the beautiful pool and golf course. With 3 older teen kids, each room had just what we needed with an en-suite bathroom. Eduardo is the consummate host handling our travel to and from the airport; scheduling our excursions including working with local vendors for the best prices and best experience; and detailing all our options. Definitely rent the golf cart as it will allow you to experience so much more of the area – the multiple neighborhood/hotel pools, dining options, nightlife, etc. This house is located in just the right spot – quiet street with just a short drive to the clubhouse, Ojos Indigenous, multiple beaches, the Marina, etc. Eduardo helped make the experience simple and worry-free – he was uber-responsive to our multiple emails for information both before and during our stay. We can’t wait to stay here again!

Great house, great weather, great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples stay at this house that is ideally located. It is a short drive (10 minutes) from the airport. Getting golf carts is key as you are then 3 minutes to the golf course and beach, 6 or 7 minutes to the Westin and maybe 10 minutes to Playa Blanca, which was our favorite beach and restaurant. Eduardo (homeowner) is very accommodating and prompt to address your needs and questions. The house staff worked out great once we learned to use Google translator :). The house is very nice in appearance and amenities just as described in the details.

A great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house lived up to its advertising and previous glowing reviews. Very clean, well maintained property with plenty of room for the family to spread out. Evelyn the live in cook produced delightful Dominican food and along with helping hand Chiquitico kept the house clean and tidy each day. If you do not have any Spanish speaking guests with you, I recommend spending some time learning key phrases - different meats, vegetables, days of week, meals etc so that you can plan meals with them for the week.

The golf carts were very useful and we used them frequently throughout the day to go to the gym, play tennis, swim in the natural lagoons, visit the beach club pool, visit Play Blanca beach and restaurant and for late night trips to the Westin for ice cream.

We recommend the private catamaran trip that Eduardo can help arrange for you - we enjoyed the snorkeling so much we did it twice!

All in all this property was a great place for our family to relax and to enjoy spending quality time together and not have to worry about cooking, cleaning up, restaurant reservations or driving anywhere.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great about Tortuga Bay Villa B#5. The house is exactly as advertised with a beautiful entry. The interior is spacious with three nice bedrooms. The master bedroom is huge with a nice patio overlooking the backyard and golf course. We spent most mornings having breakfast in the backyard next to the pool. We also spent most evenings in the backyard as there is a very nice breeze. Evelyn, the chef, and Edmund "Chiquitico", the butler/helper, are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast and dinners they prepared during our stay were wonderful. They do it all, from preparing the meals, setting the table, and cleaning up. I can't say enough good things about them. The resort has a lot to offer and the golf carts are a great amenity. I would definitely recommend this villa.
