Villa Beach 921

North Coast
Dominican Republic
(800) 846-7280

Agency: Unusual Villa Rentals
Owner John Greer specializes in private islands; he has access to more than 50. Some rentals include a yacht and crew, while others come with a helicopter. Rentals on more-mainstream islands—such as St. Bart's, Turks and Caicos, and the Dominican Republic—are also available.

The soaring, open-plan design of this four-bedroom property makes the most of its beachfront location on the Dominican Republic's north coast. Inside, the amenities include a slick chef's kitchen with a wood-burning pizza oven and baths with sunken spa tubs; outside, there's a private palapa for yoga or meditation, an herb garden, a four-car garage, and a spacious infinity pool overlooking a slice of breezy beach. The water-sport capital of Cabarete, just minutes away, has windsurfing, kiteboarding, and enough cafes and beach bars to keep happy-hourers happy around the clock.
