“Spectacular Villa in Paradise!”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2015

What a spectacular vacation! We stayed at Villa Las Ballenas for 10 days with three other couples, a total of 8. The house was absolutely perfect for 8 adults. All 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms were clean and accommodated us perfectly. The villa grounds are well kept and boast a variety of palm trees, fruit trees and plants. The staff, Geronimo and Nana were very attentive and assisted us with any questions we had. Geronimo even hooked us up with a guy who delivered lobster and prawns right to the house, fresh from the boat. Nana was gracious enough to allow us to attend Church with her on Sunday evening. The house was equipped with everything needed to cook, relax and to enjoy ourselves. Place settings, towels for showers, extra sheets, beach towels and even a charcoal BBQ by the pool. The bedrooms have air-conditioning that you can turn on when you are sleeping, however we only ran ours twice during our stay as we chose to open our windows and let the ocean breeze blow thru. We spent our days by having a cup of coffee while watching the whales swim by in the morning from the gazebo, then lunch by the pool while swimming and lounging. Early afternoon cocktails by the pool and then dinner at the dining room table while the light breezes blew thru the big french doors. It really is an oasis all in itself. It was a very hard decision each day to decide whether we even wanted to leave the house or just stay by the pool all day. We enjoyed reading, playing card games and visiting with our friends. The internet worked the whole time we were there so we were able to video chat with our kids back home and receive “imessages”. The house dog Lucy was wonderful and very well behaved. She lounged by our feet and cleaned up any crumbs that were left behind. In Las Galeras there is a fish shop, a hardware store, restaurants, gift shops and a small grocery store. We enjoyed Playa Ricon so much that we went twice during our stay. We rented our car thru NATIONAL Rental car in Santo Domingo. On day four of our trip our car battery died. I called National and they actually drove up a new car the very next day and delivered it to the house. I was skeptical as it was a 3 hour drive, but National did deliver on their word! On day 8 we took a drive to Las Terranas and the view was spectacular. Definitely recommend doing a day trip. The scenery is incredible! All in all, we had a wonderful vacation and highly recommend staying at Villa Las Ballenas!

Response from the owner Jennifer, Thanks for staying with us, and thanks for taking the time to review Villa Las Ballenas. The owner has worked very hard to make it comfortable and welcoming and will be thrilled to know you and your friends enjoyed your time there so much. Please keep it in mind for a future visit. P.S. Thanks for your recommendation on National Car Rental. Very helpful.

“Hidden Paradise”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2014

My friend and I experienced the peacefulness of Villa Las Ballenas in October 2014. The spacious villa is a hidden gem set in a large tropical garden in a beautiful part of the Dominican Republic, near Rincon Beach. Two sets of wide French doors off the living and dining rooms open to a large, private pool and fenced garden with a wonderful cooling ocean breeze so we never even saw a mosquito. Beyond that there is an outdoor cooking area and large, shaded palapa which offered plenty of seating with an outstanding ocean view. The villa is a well-maintained and the friendly watchman and his wife were nearby to help us and answer our questions. We felt comfortable knowing that the manager was just a phone call away, too. Our escape was a pleasant blend of serenity and Caribbean nature.

Response from the owner Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed Villa Las Ballenas so much! And we hope you will choose to stay at Villa Las Ballenas the next time you visit the area. It's breathtaking during whale watching season, around January 25 through March 25. Happy trails.
