Fantastic Time! - Mara Villas

March 26-April 2, 2024
We had a fantastic time at the villa! Everything was wonderful, the staff feel like family and the good food Chef Ariel made was INCREDIBLE! I wish we had hired him for all the meals and maybe only do one outing,he was THAT good. Jason was so hospitable and readily available for all of our questions. He also took time to set up reservations for us to keep things easy. We would absolutly do this trip again!!!

Your Own Private Resort - Mara Villas

Mon, Mar 11 – Sat, Mar 16, 2024

We had a fantastic vacation at this property. You may think you are just renting a house, but you are actually renting your own private resort. We opted to hire Ariel, the private chef, and we are so glad we did. Ariel prepared breakfast and dinner for us each day and the meals were unbelievable. We chose the theme, like Italian or Seafood, and he did the rest. It is very clear that Jason, the owner, has a background in hospitality, because he took care of every detail, including transportation to and from the airport, transportation to town, and he had the house stocked with the food and drinks we requested when we arrived. The check-in process was simple and very professional. The view from this property is amazing. Sitting by the pool you have the perfect vantage point to watch the waves and cruise ships pass by. Most of the bedrooms have incredible views of the ocean as well. The pool was perfectly clear, and just the right temperature. The beds were comfortable, as was all the furniture around the pool and on the patio. We were very pleasantly surprised to have daily housekeeping. They made the beds, kept the rooms clean, and made sure that we had fresh linens, including the towels by the pool. The staff was very friendly, but we never felt that the intruded on our vacation. This is a great place for a vacation and we are anxious to return.

The house is exactly as advertised, paradise! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a piece of paradise. Chef Ariel and his wife are an absolute must, the food is beyond amazing and their attention to detail is unparalleled.

Family Vacation was everything we wanted and more! - Mara Villas

Tue, Jan 2 – Sat, Jan 6, 2024

Jason the host cares about his guests and it shows from the moment we arrived. He greeted us and gave us a tour, and introduced us to his amazing staff. Ariel the chef prepared the best food I have ever had. I cannot say enough great things about Ariel, not only amazing food but so friendly and a great human being. The entire staff made the entire stay pleasurable. I highly recommend adding meals to your stay. We also went to Wilsons which was also an experience worth checking out. We would love to go back. Thank you Jason and staff for making our family vacation a wonderful trip of a lifetime

Dominican relaxation - Mara Villas

Sat, Dec 16 – Sat, Dec 23, 2023

Had a wonderful week with our family of 10. The property was perfect for all of us and although the local restaurants were great, having Ariel and his cooking staff was the highlight of the visit. The food was superb, Jason was a very responsive host no matter how often we contacted him with questions and the taxi service was very welcome- don't try to drive- they are crazy! They even have Pickleball courts at the tennis center around the corner. Cannot really think of a downside except that time passed too quickly!! Would recommend without reservation!

Family Vacation - Mara Villas

Fri, Jun 30 – Fri, Jul 7, 2023

We had a great time - the house is as described and everyone (ages 13-75) loved the vacation. As all other reviews state, the staff is incredible and will do anything to accommodate all requests. Ariel and his wife are the sweetest- they went out of their way to celebrate my moms birthday while we were there. She felt very special!! The beach right outside the gate was enjoyed by all- I do wish there were some beach chairs we could have taken out there but it was still enjoyable! Would definitely stay here again!!

Amazing location, fantastic staff - Mara Villas

Wed, Jan 11 – Sun, Jan 15, 2023

We stayed here for 5 days. The owner was extremely helpful. From giving us a comprehensive tour of the property, to helping with shopping and making arrangements for a birthday party, musicians, etc. If you stay here, definitely opt in for the additional food and drinks staff. Chef Ariel is amazing and makes high quality food to your liking.

We had a wonderful stay at this property! The location was beautiful, scenic, and very secure. The house is beautiful and the staff was very attentive. The chef was AMAZING!! Some of the best food on the island… I wish I could bring him back to the states! The property owner was great, very accommodating and helpful with last minute restaurant suggestions, directions etc. He definitely knows his way around and has connections with everyone.
