About our home

We created our vacation home, which we named Villa Castellamonte, in 2002 as the near perfect destination for our family and friends to relax, unwind and enjoy life. Over the years the villa has grown in popularity as a prime vacation rental destination. It is noted as one of the top ten luxury vacation villas in the Caribbean and has been cited by Fodor's Guide as a "Fodor Choice" destination two years in a row. We are online at

The villa is located within a secure, gated community named Orchid Bay Estates, located along the unspoiled, pristine northern coastline of the Dominican Republic. Although our little enclave is small it is also very much like the "Hampton's of the Dominican Republic." Driving through, you see the charming typical Dominican life but entering Orchid Bay you find yourself surrounded by these massive residences owned by an eclectic mix of people who all truly enjoy life and living in the Dominican Republic. And we bet, you will as well!

Our vacation home is extremely spacious, covering in excess of 15,000 square feet within nearly 2 acres of manicured tropical gardens. The villa was designed by an award-winning architect who sited it perfectly on a soaring sea cliff overlooking a semi-private golden sand beach. Within the villa are eight (8) generous bedrooms each with en suite baths. Two of the bedrooms are considered "master suites" as they have very large bathrooms, huge separate walk in closets and oversized bedrooms (one of these is handicap accessible as well).

Because our vacation home is also a fully operating luxury rental destination the property includes a fully dedicated, professional staff who cater to your every need. The staff includes butlers, maids, an executive chef, concierge, gardeners, maintenance and private security. The staff are there to help you relax and enjoy yourself, please do not lift a finger other than to indicate how many martinis you want! Even your meals are prepared just as you like them (the concierge will help you design them, just as you want). Your food is prepared, drinks served and linens changed daily; you needn't worry about it.

Rather than spending the tens of thousands of dollars to rent the villa, you exchange and get a magnificent destination at a fraction of the cost. While you are in residence your costs are minimized to the meal plan ($65/pp daily), a variable fuel surcharge (typically $100/day) and any gratuity you want to leave with the staff (minimum $1000). For groups occupying more than four (4) bedrooms we will require an additional mandatory minimum gratuity. Otherwise, all 'out of pocket' expenses are at your expense.

We also ask that if you have a smaller residence for exchange that you only use the same number of bedrooms in our villa. But while you are in residence you are still the only ones in the villa (except the staff) so you have your total privacy!
