All Caribbean vacation villa rentals are definitely not alike!  Many of the so-called “luxury” vacation rental villas do not include many of the elements we provide to help ensure you have a wonderful vacation with us. For example, we provide a full-time dedicated staff catering to your every need. The staff includes butlers, maids, chef, concierge and many others working behind the scenes to help make your vacation as perfect as can be. Some other vacation villas are nothing more than a simple house lacking the staff, luxury amenities and features discriminating travelers desire.

Our own experience at many luxury vacation villa destinations convinced us of the need for a totally unique, ultra-luxury vacation villa rental. This is why we created Villa Castellamonte!

Every comfort and luxury has been considered to make your luxury villa vacation the most wonderful and relaxing you have ever enjoyed. Use this stunning vacation rental as your dream retreat this year!

Luxury Accommodations

Caribbean luxury villa rentals in the Dominican Republic are private vacation rentals by owner offered to discriminating guests as their own “Caribbean vacation home away from home.” But all Caribbean vacation villa rentals are definitely not alike!

Villa Castellamonte has eight (8) spacious bedrooms, 2 of which are master suites (one up/one down), and all bedrooms have their own private en suite bathrooms.  A few of the bedrooms also have additional day beds in case you want to invite some additional guests.  The villa is nearly 15,000 square feet, offering plenty of room for everyone to stretch out, relax and enjoy paradise!

Massive Private Pool

The huge private swimming pool is yet another of the fantastic family-oriented designs created by the owners to meet the individual needs of groups.  The unique shape of the private pool starts with a spacious zero-entry (aka. beach-entry), perfect for strolling into the pool, it also makes the safest entry for the elderly, youngsters and is even handicap accessible. Whatever fun in the pool you enjoy, we have it here for you!

All too often we find guests relax in the pool and never end up going to the beach!  It can be addicting because our famous staff are there catering to your desires.  Need an ice cold beer or refreshing cocktail?  How about some snacks for you and the kids? Anything you need, they are happy to bring it to you in the pool.

Handicap Accessibility

The Siena Master Suite on the main level is designed to unobtrusively provide for handicap accessibility.  Doorways are wider than normal to allow for wheelchairs, the separate toilet/bidet are slightly raised to allow for ease of transfer and the shower is roll in.  Also, coming from the Siena terrace is a handicap ramp to provide for easier access to the swimming pool and gardens.

All of the terraces, terrace doors and main entries/exits from the villa are double wide so as to easily provide for handicap accessibility

Our swimming pool is designed, through it’s zero-entry, to provide for handicap accessibility.  Suitable wheelchairs and other devices can easily be rolled into the pool allowing the handicapped individual(s) to enjoy the wonderful water just as the other members of their group are doing.

Lastly, we even have a ramp into the lower garden of the villa to allow our handicap guests full access to the gardens.

If you are traveling with a handicap member of your group, please discuss it with the villa owners so we can fully inform you of what we have and can do to help make the vacation as pleasant as possible.


Our professional staff cater to your every need while you are in residence, so you can enjoy the most carefree, relaxing and memorable vacation ever!

Deep Shady Terraces

A favorite feature of our luxury villa rental are the deep, shady terraces where you may dine, stretch out on one of the couches, play a game of billiards or ping pong, curl up in a chair to read your latest novel or anything else.  Our terraces are 18′ deep so they protect against the Caribbean sun as much as the occasional rain storm.  Relax and enjoy the soothing trade winds in absolute comfort!

Our Local Beaches

Villa Castellamonte has direct access to it’s own semi-private 600′ golden sand beach.  Walk through our lower garden, descend 25 steps and you are ‘toes in the sand’, as they say.  Our beach is one of our guests favorites for evening bon-fires, romantic weddings or just goofing around.

Within the same community as our vacation villa rental are two additional beaches you are welcome to visit.  One is even smaller than ours (and difficult to access) while the other is much longer with a safe, stairway access.  When you are visiting us you are welcome to visit any of these other local beaches — all walking distance — whenever you desire.  Every beach has it’s own character…

Where We Are Located

We are located on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic within a secure, gated community called Orchid Bay Estates in the town of Cabrera.  We are midway between two larger towns, Rio San Juan and Nagua.

When booking with us, please let us know which airport you may be traveling into so we can provide directions.  Typically we send transportation to you but in the event you want to drive, you’ll need a few directions to get here.

“This is the second time we have come to stay at Villa Castellamonte. We visited in 2011 and loved it so much, we came back again this year. We were 5 couples with a total of 9 kids – aged 5 – 11. Everybody had an amazing time. This ended up being an incredibly fun and relaxing vacation and we would come back again in a second. Highly recommend!”

“My husband and I got married here in 2005 and loved it so much that we came back for our 10th anniversary. Both times, 10-14 people stayed in the villa with us. The villa is so expansive that it easily houses a big group without feeling cramped.
We loved our group meals and everyone was blown away by the food. The staff was fantastic and made us fabulous cocktails all day and night.”
