“Fabulous views!”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The property was great, we really enjoyed our stay. The villa is located on top of the hill outside the main village. It's very quite but you do need a jeep (or a quad) to access it. Taxi are also available at extortionate rates. The villa is located 5 mins away driving from the beach where you can find delicious food and cocktails. Scuba diving center and kite surfing instructors are available at the beach.
The villa is on three floors with the master bedroom on top. A second bedroom is on the ground floor while the other two bedrooms are on the floor below. Nice views from all bedrooms but the main feature is the infinity pool located at the front of the villa.
The owner, his wife and the manager are very helpful to make your stay pleasant. Our laggages were carried up to the room (there's a steep stair to access the property) which was much appreciated. The villa was cleaned daily and we had a person preparing breakfast for us.
In terms of catches, Internet could only be connected after 2 days which has created some problems. The villa is in the middle of a beautiful natural environment so it's natural that animals were around, the problem is that little frogs, geckos, spiders were found everywhere in the villa. Thankfully they are scared of humans and tend to disappear quickly.
We could not pay the deposit via paypal and that has created some logistical problem as it's not easy to withdraw money at the village and the deposit was quite large.
Leaving the above aside, it's been a magnificent experience...highly recommended!

Enrico,
Thanks for your review, and to be very fair with us, it helps me changing little things as you know it is really difficult to get perfection in DR...

Sorry for the internet, i have been doing my best, but the problem came from the provider, and again DR is not US.
As you know the only villa available for you, was the one with some little stairs, even if the team is always helping you, you know that the higher you are, the better will be the sea view (excellent for watching the whales).
It is important to say that even if you find some littles animals inside the villa, it doesn t mean that the villa is not clean but only that we are in the middle of a beautifull tropical garden with lots of flowers, and the best is that none of the little animals are dangerous, and the kids love it.
Regarding the deposit, i am still looking for a solution with flipkey and tripadvisor but having bank accounts in Dominican Republic makes problems for the system, we will find a solution shortly.
Welcome back
Fred

“Trip of our dreams!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We knew Las Terrenas would be beautiful but the beaches, food, Loma Taniera rental house and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. We have traveled to St. Lucia, Mexico and Costa Rica but this was by far our dream vacation. Fred and his staff (Nairobi, Miguel and Gisele) were amazing! Fred was very helpful as we worked to plan our trip and once we arrived, the high level of service continued. Nairobi made us many delicious dinners and breakfasts - don't miss out on her pancakes!! If we ever need refills on the filtered water or house maintenance, Miguel was there when we needed him. If you have the opportunity to stay at Loma Taniera, DO IT! The view is incredible - better than the pictures, trust me. We traveled with 5 friends and most of us like to visit new places each year. This is one place dear to our hearts and memories...so we plan to go back.

“Favorite Vacation to Date!”
Reviewed 3 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I must say...this was my favorite vacation yet. Fred and his staff were amazing and the pictures of our villa on the internet do not do justice for this heavenly place. The house is amazing with an open living and open air concept. It is clean and in great condition. the staff cleaned our pool twice a week and had cleaning service every morning. Make sure to rent atv's to explore all of Las Terranas. The beaches are beautiful and the locals are friendly. It's a great town with great food. I highly recommend this to families, friends or as a romantic get away. You will not be disappointed!

Laurel,

Thank you for your review, as you know not so many clients are taking the time to make a review, and we really appreciate it.
We are happy to have feedback.

It was really a pleasure to welcome you. I hope we could always have guests like you.
Next time you visit us i will show you many other things from las terrenas, i promise everytime it will be different.

So i was right to insist for renting ATV s instead of a car...

Best
Fred

“Paradise in the Dominican, an amazing vacation for the whole family”
Reviewed 25 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Our stay in the Dominican Republic was perfect from the beginning to end. We were met by the driver as we left customs and went immediately to the villa. The villa was beyond what we were expecting-- the view was incredible, the house was large with a lot of rooms, and the kids (8 year old & 4 year old) couldn't wait to get outside and play in the pool. The style & decor of the villa created the perfect environment for the whole family. We hired a chef to come to the house for the first few meals, and she met with us, developed a shopping list, and prepared dinner, breakfast, lunch according to what we liked to eat and what seafood was fresh. We had calamari, shrimp, grilled fish, lobster within the first few meals, and homemade caipirinhas & pina coladas with the meals. We rented an ATV and the 4 of us drove around the island exploring new beaches and restaurants each day. Las Terrenas is a great little town and we quickly learned our way around. Our children enjoyed playing with the local children in the community, and Alex & Fred were very gracious hosts. All in all, a perfect vacation... we can't wait to go back!

this place is a treat for any family or group of friends who want to enjoy the authenticity of Dominican Republic with the comfort of simple luxury... and the owners are the nicest persons, very available in the case you need anything. Really great vacation memories.
