Villa Lazy Heart
This spectacular exclusive Caribbean resort villa in the Dominican Republic 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 tropical Caribbean retreat in a stable, friendly country with regular non-stop air connections to the outside world. Completed in late 1997, this island getaway property was developed with one goal in mind: to create the most spectacular home on the north coast island resort of Hispaniola, Dominican Republic. Over 200 skilled artisan craftsmen shared in the process and the result, both in terms of exotic materials and fabulous beach location is nothing short of magnificent.
Spread over 10 acres of gardens, pastures and lawns, the private luxury villa allows individual guests to enjoy privacy in any one of a dozen exquisite locations while accommodating groups of up to 16 with ease. Whether you desire an unforgettable family holiday, executive retreat, spectacular wedding reception, romantic honeymoon getaway or luxury golf vacation, Villa Lazy Heart and its wonderful staff will provide the finest villas in the Caribbean. Here, it is ... Paradise found.
The master suite is located in its own cottage, a few steps from the main house for convenience, but set apart for privacy. The cottage features a luxurious king sized bed, his-and-hers bathrooms and a dressing room. Mahogany doors open onto a covered wraparound terrace, furnished with hammock and rocking chairs overlooking the sea-- the ideal spot for reading a book, sharing a bottle of wine at sunset, or receiving a massage or pedicure.
Other sleeping accommodations include: the guest casita, a pool-side cottage featuring two bedrooms with queen sized beds, each with a large bath and wraparound terrace; the tower bedroom suite, with its two balconied bedrooms and full bath that provide stunning sea and garden views, as well as a cozy bedroom with private bath just off the villa's great room. The final structure is an ocean-view, pool-side cottage featuring two spacious suites, each with generous bath and dressing area.
In addition to the ten full time bedrooms, an eleventh sleeping space is located in a charming nook, which has one extra bed that can sleep one person, adjacent to the game room. In all, there are 11 separate sleeping areas and ten full bathrooms. All linens and towels are of the best quality.
The kitchen, in many ways the heart of the private villa, is a lovely space, open on two sides to gentle trade winds. The spacious, 35' x 22' great room is the perfect place to entertain, with its elegant yet comfortable ambiance, a variety of amusing coffee table literature, and functioning fireplace. There are several indoor and outdoor dining venues, including a beautiful picnic table overlooking the sea.
The 20' x 26' game room houses billiard table and entertainment center with 30' satellite TV, VCR, and stereo system. TV/VCR's are also located in several other bedrooms, and the villa boasts a fine selection of current and classic movies as well as an extensive library.
Note: To get to the small private beach area, there are many stairs and would not be suitable for small children or persons with mobility issues.
