This spectacular exclusive villa was lovingly designed and constructed over a 15 month period by an award winning American architect.

Having sailed over 200,000 miles offshore, including a circumnavigation of the Earth, the owner sought a Caribbean retreat in a stable, friendly country with regular non-stop air connections to the outside world.

Completed in late 1997, the property was developed with one goal in mind: to create the most spectacular home on the north coast of the island of Hispaniola.

Over 200 skilled craftsmen and artisans participated in the process and the result, both in terms of exotic materials and fabulous oceanfront location, is nothing short of magnificent.

The result is a stunning private tropical villa rental on 10-acres with caribbean landscaped gardens, a 600-foot semi-private white sand beach, large heated swimming pool, stables for the five horses, a hard clay tennis court and a highly trained staff of 13 dedicated to providing your every comfort.

Whether you desire an unforgettable family holiday, spectacular wedding reception or memorable golf vacation, and with it's wonderful staff, it will provide the finest venue in the Caribbean. Here, it is Paradise found.
