Villa Windsong: An Exclusive Opportunity to Rent or Own in The Dominican Republic

We would like to introduce you to Villa Windsong, an exclusive real estate and rental opportunity on the north coast of Dominican Republic.

Villa Windsong is an elegantly appointed beachfront villa, located in one of the most prestigious gated communities on the north coast of Dominican Republic. In fact, we feel that it is a true reflection of the luxurious Caribbean lifestyle. Many people dream of living or staying here – are you one of them?

Villa Windsong is an amazing example of Cabarete real estate which is for rent and for sale and represented by Select Caribbean Properties.

A large part of the beauty of this home is the clever design and layout of the entire home and property. With five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, Villa Windsong is ideal for hosting large families or events. In fact, each one of the beautiful and luxurious bedrooms can be entered from a hallway along with a tropical garden or directly from the ocean side.

Spacious and well equipped, the villa’s kitchen is artfully designed and makes entertaining a pure joy.

The marvel of this home, however, is the 200 square meter oceanfront living room that faces out over the Atlantic Ocean.

Sweeping, cathedral style ceilings allow the Caribbean breeze to flow freely throughout the home and out over the property. To provide unobstructed views of the ocean, all doors have also been designed to fold or retract toward the wall, adding to the unique and classic charm of this villa. It’s truly a beautiful space.

Outside those doors is an expansive infinity pool with the beach-style entrance. This pool area is surrounded by your own ocean front coco bar and outdoor pizza oven. Imagine the parties and family gatherings that could happen in this space!

Just beyond that area, the property extends out to a private beach that is also available for to explore and enjoy.

In addition to the beauty of the property, the entire building has a central water purification system. This thoughtful addition provides both peace of mind and convenience.

Beyond the principal home, there is also a staff area containing two separate bedrooms and bathrooms. Many members of the team have been working there since the beginning. All guests have enjoyed and commented on the quality of their care and help over the years.

The villa’s garage has parking space for up to four large vehicles, allowing for extra space in the driveway.

Villa Windsong is located in a very secure and welcoming neighborhood. The area contains homes and properties that are filled with locals and visitors, alike.

Nearby horse stables, tennis courts, and ocean view dining add to the charm of this location.

When contemplating the buy of a second home, many options are available to the buyer who has chosen the Dominican Republic as its location.

Residential properties of all types and in all price ranges are available in our Caribbean paradise, and the potential buyer needs to ask himself some questions before committing to purchase:

– Do you plan to spend many weeks or months here? Will you fill your new vacation residence with personal items from home and close it up when you leave?

– Will you spend a few weeks a year in your warm-weather home and place it in a rental program while you are away?

– Does the lure of extensive gardens tempt you, and will you keep animals such as horses, on your tropical property?

For some, a lovely villa with private pool and access to the amenities of a top-
notch gated community near Sosua, Cabarete or Cabrera will be the answer. In such a residence, you may truly “spread out” and create a home away from home, enjoying gardening and cooking and relaxing in a very personal space.

For others, a condo in an active town like Cabarete will be perfect. Many condominium projects provide long-term storage for water toys such as windsurfers and kiteboarding equipment while maintaining an active rental program. Owning such a property will provide you with access to Caribbean life when desired, while often paying for itself or even making you a handsome profit when you are away.

Whatever it is you want in a second home, it is available in a form sure to satisfy the most discerning individual or family. A visit to the enchanting Dominican Republic will change you forever, for here, there is something for everyone.
