Guestbook comments from the manager

This place was a dream come true for our family. It's magical, quiet, close enough to everything, beautiful, tranquil, serene and relaxing. I'm not sure who loved it more, our toddlers or the grandparents. Luxury in the midst of an authentic Las Terrenas area with the perfect combination of amazing beach, private pool, larger pool, and lovely staff. Highly recommended.

After staying in Puerto Rico, Cuba and Martinica, this is by far our favorite vacation spot.

The ocean and beaches are beautiful, having an option of the pool is great also. Excellent restaurants, large grocery stores are great to have access to.

Stephanie is wonderful, very caring and attentive. Housekeeping services are also superb!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 month at this house and loved it. We had our kids (& toddler Grandkids) and other family visit us. The beach is close, clean and beautiful. Having our own hot tub and pool was great for everyone- it allows you to get away from it all if you feel like it. The rooms were all very large and comfortable. We felt extremely safe during our entire stay and are already ready to book another month next year. It was a great property for kids but I would recommend it for children under 4 that have no pool safety or lack listening skills since it is very easily accessible. The house is well equipped for anything needed for children. The food in town is incredible (probably ate out at 10+ restaurants) and also had Chef Danny come over 5 times. We loved it all. Overall, every visitor had a great time and we would all recommend it to anyone asking.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property. Very clean and Michael is wonderful. We reserved Chef Danny for 2 nights who did a great job with the local Dominican meals. Access to beach was simple and all are "needs" met. The property manager was quick to respond and assisted with cabs, tips and any questions we had. Great experience! Thank you to all!

The property is beautiful. Very quiet. Nice views

  • 4 of 5

This property is beautiful, gated, very safe. It is near a nice beach but is a bit removed from Town so you do need transportation of some sort to get back and forth for shopping, dinner, etc. Property Management is very responsive. Housekeeping staff great. Would definitely recommend Chef Danny!

Great Unit Size And Overall Satisfaction

  • 4 of 5

Great Space to have for my family and my parents who loved the units size and the pool and hot tub on our balcony. My two kids spent many hours daily in the both pools as well as we went down to the common large pool to relax and take in more sun. The sun gets behind the unit after 1:00 pm but overall temperature there was 27-31 degrees Celsius.

We spent two weeks and enjoyed a few of the excursions as well. Zipline and Kayaking in the mangrove jungle. Mosquitos were a minimum saw very few. Here, Nicolas was our contact and he explained everything to us and was great to work with in deciding what to do.

I don't want to forget to mention the daily maid service was awesome!! The ladies were so nice and friendly. The pool(s) were cleaned every couple days too.

We had Danny as our Chef seven nights of the 14 nights we stayed and he made every meal like you were in a five star restaurant. We tired a new dish almost every night and it was soooo good!

I have to give 5 plus stars for the property manager Mikael. He is the most amazing individual. If we ask for anything he either did it himself or had one of his staff attend to our needs immediately. For example. Groceries were picked up for us. We had a coffee maker stop working and they replaced it within 1 hr. Needed a bike pump and it showed up in 5 minutes. We wanted a couple toys for the boys. (Boogie or body board and a ball) Michael picked it up for us. (BTW we left that stuff in the unit after we left for others to use) If we needed anything we used an App called Whats App and Michael would immediately respond. He also had a cell phone but we did not use it because the App worked so well. He called cabs for us when my mom and wife wanted to go into town to go shopping and took them to the best places.

The owner Emma was in contact with us after our first week to make sure everything was going ok. They all try very hard to make your stay the best as possible which shows they care!

There is wifi but it's a little slow. The beach was the only thing we thought could of been a little cleaner but overall we did see people racking up overburden and areas where the garbage was collected piled up but did get removed. The local people were very nice and we felt safe as we traveled into town on bikes a few times to check out the town. Not very many people speak english but we managed quite well. I can't give 1/2 stars but if I could I would give 4 1/2 out of 5.
