What Past Guests Are Saying
Good holidays French tourist.
Excellent stay in this charming and very comfortable house corresponded completely to our wait.
She is equipped well and functional nothing misses.
Very beautiful tropical garden and nearby in this magnificent residence there is a very pleasant swimming pool what is considerable at certain hours.
The location is really ideal to Las Terrenas just a two step from the beach, and has six steps of the pleasant Paseo, place with diverse bars and trade.
Multifold ballads to be especially, made in quad.
The managers (Geraldine and Pascal) are has listen to him and very welcoming.
Very good address in family, we shall return without any problem if the opportunity arises

Charming house close to "everything"
Nice, charming house close to the nearest beach and Las Terreneas.
Easy living ,quiet, safe and secure.
We loved the big,covered terrace and the house was perfect for us to share.
great house, great beach
This is the perfect house in the best location of Las Terrenas in the best area of the Samana Peninsula. Big kitchen with blender, gas stove, microwave and full size. Full bathrooms on the first and second floors, big dining and living rooms, 3 bedrooms, washing machine and abundant storage space. Did I mention there's wifi? We spent almost all of our time at home on the enormous deck/porch at the full size table, looking out over our gorgeously landscaped backyard (with lawn chairs), listening to the birds chirp in the morning and evening - divine! I was surprised how cool the house stayed even on the hottest days - we never turned the a/C on. I am extremely picky about beaches, and the beach right at the foot of your road is a massive sweeping beauty! It's turquoise with gradual depth - perfect for kids and serious swimmers. You can rent chairs, though we usually just sat on our towels. To the right a bit is the point and past the point is another massive palm tree backed beach, but this one untouched! (Other beach nuts: take a day trip to Playa Rincon.)
We also went humpback whale watching and were blown away - make sure you go with Whale Samana. Las Terrenas is a happening place, with a big modern supermarket, banks, endless bars and restaurants, and plenty of stores for the shopper.
Please note that you are getting a fantastic deal with this villa - it really is luxurious. It is big, too, so why not invite along a couple of friends and get it for a steal? Lucky you for finding this place, do yourself a favour and book now!

The house was at an ideal location- just minutes from the beach (literally 2 minutes away on foot), a variety of restaurants, and various places to shop for souvenirs or groceries. The beaches around the house were absolutely beautiful- white sand beaches with clear waters. The house itself was well kept, modern, and comfortable. When we got there it was clean & it had everything you would ever need for a weeks stay- towels, extra sheets, pots/pan, dishes, and even a clothes washer. Overall I enjoyed the stay and I would highly recommend staying here.

Pretty and comfortable house at good value.
Took wife and 3 kids (ages 9-13)) to DR for their Spring Break from school. Wanted to check out the beautiful beaches in DR but stay out of big hotel scene. Found this house on Ta. Owner very pleasant to deal with in terms of making reservation. Only problem was his insistence that I wire the deposit, as opposed to send check or money order. I don't do this enough to know if that's standard for an international rental, but thought that part was a pain in the butt given that we were talking a couple of hundred dollars. Flew into SD, rented SUV, and drove to Samana Penninusla. Easy drive but for last hour or so, when off the highway and going over little mountain roads. But not nearly as bad as some reviewers would have you believe. (It's not I-95, but very doable; and I've never driven in Carribean before.)
Told by owner that he would not be present, but neighbors in same gated complex would have key ready for us. This was really only big disappointment of trip. Upon arrival, after long day of travelling from us, no neighbor to be found. (Accidentally set off their alarm knocking on their front door.) Had trouble reaching them on my us phone. Dropped my family at beach across the street and prowled the area looking for someone who spoke English or would understand my pidgeon-Spanish enough to call neighbors for me. After about 45 mins, finally got through to them and they let us in. They were apologetic, but it still sucked.
After that initial unpleasantness, it was all gravy. The small complex is very pretty and well maintained. Locked and gated with armed guards at night. Felt 100% safe and secure there. (Guards very nice, eager to practice their English, and even let my teenage son hold their shotgun, making his trip.) The grounds are very green with beautiful plants and flowers everywhere. Unexpectedly pretty. Just about everybody staying there was French or Italian, also unexpectedly pretty. I thought from the Ta listing that the house had it's own pool, which it did not. But there was a servicible, if small, pool shared by complex's residents. Very nice for after beach, late afternoon dip. Had large water bottles for sale on site, which was convenient.
House itself was fantastic. Perfect for low-key family like ours, hoing to stay on our own without over-paying for luxury we didn't need. House very clean and tastefully furnished. Not really my area of expertise, but seemed almost Zen-like in decor. Had a/C but we didn't need to use, even in mid-April, as screened windows and cool evenings did the trick. Everything -- electric, water, fridge, oven, etc. - worked just fine. Not luxurious by american standards, but clean, pretty and calm. Could use an upgrade in their coffee maker, but that's probably a French thing.
For those of you from us, both the house and the town of Las Terrenas have a definite Euro feel, almost all of it good. Little cafes on the street, very little English being spoken (and even understood) anywhere, restaurants with more of a European menu. Kind of cool.
Biggest complaint had nothing to do with the house. House was very nice, in very pleasant complex. Situated close enough to local beach that it was easy 5 minute walk (though you have to cross busy road to get there), 15-20 minute walk into town, but set back enough that normal hustle and bustle of town does not penetrate. But, Las Terrenas itself was kind of a pit. Did not come off as "charming seaside village with lots of European tourists." It was dirty, depressingly poor, very loud, constant traffic. Not at all relaxing in town. Definitely felt Third-World there. Not so much a complaint as a fact of life to be prepared for. So happened that our vacation fell on biggest beach vacation week of year for the locals, so that no doubt contributed to the noise and crowding. But even at beginning of week, before local holidays, town was still unpleasant. Definitely were times, stepping over flattened rat on sidewalk while inhaling exhaust of upteenth passing motor-bike when I felt the downside to not going the big resort route, but overall, happy with our decision.
Because we did have great time. Area is small enough that it is easy to drive out of town to nearby, even nicer beaches fairly easily. Went to Playa Bonita, twice. As pretty a beach as I have ever seen. Weather was great the whole week. Occasional, brief shower but not one day of seven was a wash out. Every day was mostly sunny and warm to hot - perfect beach weather. Locals were very pleasant, seemed surprised and happy to meet americans, even when trying to sell hair-braiding or trinkets. Great way to experience the island. Overall, great house, great vacation.
Paradis on earth, foots in the water
Villa really confortable, nice garden for the kids. We will come back next year for sure. We were all glad to discover this region.

Good Location, comfortable stay
This is a great rental for the price. It is only a 5 minute walk from the wonderful sandy beaches and 10 minutes from town. It was clean and comfortable. The caretakers met us even though it was late at night. They were nice and helpful.
Some details and caveats:
ad says TV and dvd player. It has those, but no antenna, cable or dish. So technically it has a TV, but you can only use it to watch dvd's.
It has air-conditioning, but only in two of the bedrooms, not central. You also pay extra for electrical usage "above the average rate of 40 kwh per week". So if you actually use the aC, you may pay extra. All rooms and outdoor terrace have ceiling fans which worked fine for us (stayed in March).
The pool is there, but no concrete patio around pool, and only 2 lounge chairs there (one was broken). We ended up spending all our free time at the beach (which was beautiful) and no time at the pool.
Some ants were in the kitchen - keep the counters and other areas clean and free from any food items. Bring earplugs for sleeping - lots of barking dogs in the area.
We were overall satisfied with the unit for the price. Be prepare to have $500 cash for the damage deposit which is returned at the end of your stay.
Las Terranes is beautiful and generally not "americanized" - no american brands (such as McDonalds or Starbucks). People are friendly and helpful. It was refreshing staying someplace where little English is spoken and the local food isn't dumbed down. Lots of French and Italian in the area. Local restaurants were great. Beaches were beautiful and lots of opportunity to do different activities such as whale watching, etc.
Caretakers were nice and accommodating and helpful. Relatively quiet area off the main drag (where lots of 4-wheelers and motorcycles go constantly all day and night).
Overall would stay there again. Is secure with gates and a guard at night. Units are new and spacious. Owner was also helpful and arranged transport for us from airport. Loved the country.
