It’s known that we all have a dream to live for. One afternoon, the successful American entrepreneur, Spencer Kimball, while sitting on top of a cliff edge in Dominican Republic, facing a magnificent oceanfront landscape, envisioned his dream, to create a replica of the feeling of the breeze and the crashing of the waves below on his private retreat.
Surrounded by almond trees, coconut palm trees, vines and local bushes, Casa Kimball is a one-of-a-kind property where the outside world recedes to a comfortable distance and enhances the connection with those you share it with: friends, family...
Designed to make the most out of Caribbean bright sunlight and balmy breezes through its use of volumes and open spaces, the architects chose Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater" as inspiration for this oceanside marvel. Casa Kimball, owned by Spencer Kimball, is a cutting-edge architectural extravaganza with all the facilities and commodities necessary to elevate your experience.
Casa Kimball is located in the north of Dominican Republic, in an area of spectacular beauty, right next to Playa Grande, considered one of the island’s best unspoiled beaches. The property, which is located on the edge of Cabrera’s town, is set in a private guarded area sitting on the top of a 15 metres oceanside cliff, which gives commanding views over the open waters of the Atlantic. Thanks to its unbeatable position it is usual to spot from the infinity pool, in the months from January to March, an amazing natural show: the humpback whales arrival coming to reproduce in the warm coasts of the Atlantic Ocean. The area where the villa is located is in an exceptional state of conservation keeping their attractive wild landscape. The district is filled with crystal water lakes, endless beaches and exclusive boutique hotels placed, in a discreet way, along the coast. To get to the beach you just need to take a small path that will lead you to a white sand beach. The area is well preserved because the mass tourism has not arrived here. These are some of the features that set up Casa Kimball’s unique Caribbean essence.
Casa Kimball’s privileged location is shared with the neighbouring Playa Grande golf by Robert Trent Jones Sr. This legendary golf course designer has, literally, managed to lay the greens down along the edges of this rocky coast.
This scenic golf course, which is adjacent to the Aman Golf Resort, has been designed to adapt to the complex orography of the place as well as taking eco-friendliness into consideration.
A collection of impressive beaches are waiting for you within walking distance of Casa Kimball.
Playa Caleton is a secluded beach located within a private gated community, its soft white sand is protected by imposing cliffs, that give it an exclusive and almost secret character. An offshore reef will allow you to enjoy snorkeling.
Playa Grande is adjacent to the famous golf course that has the same name. It is a great place to enjoy the waves and the spacious sands are an ideal spot to have lunch: perhaps some local fresh fish and a refreshing fruity cocktail.

From January to March, Casa Kimball becomes a privileged area to spot spectacular humpback whales in the Samana Bay natural calving and mating grounds. Male humpback whales perform their solitary courting song and show off an amazing display of flippering, tail lobbing and breaching.
