  • Excellent villa, all as advertised

    "This was an excellent place to stay. Stunning sunset view of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas. It's quite large for a 1 BR with an open floor plan that really lets you spread out while still being accessible to each other. There was a surprisingly large and comfortable airbed for our 9 year old son to sleep on and it hardly seemed to cut into the living area. Lots of little things like a cooler, glasses and chairs to take with you for the day. Some kitchen necessities like sugar, salt, and rum were already in stock. The owner was responsive to any questions we had. You do have to travel up a steep hill to get to the villa, but I walked there twice from town. The neighboring villas are kinda close but it's not intrusive. Overall, we highly recommend the Mandavilla."

  • A great vacation in the DR

    "Couldn't have had a better time thanks to Paul & Tamara!! 2 weeks in the beautiful Dominican Republic. Our lodgings were nicely appointed, maintained & clean. Our day trips from the Villa were exciting and interesting. Several trips into Puerto Plata (7 mins) to visit the Fort, the Amber Museum, the Larimar Museum, up the Cable Car, the Luperon Museum & lots of shopping. Other day trips to: Monti Christi with the most beautiful beach; the mountain city of Jarabacoa with gorgeous waterfalls & rivers, Carnival Celebration & stunning vistas; to Sosua for the beaches & Jewish Museum; but the most fun was our trip to Paul & Tamara’s Plantacion de Cacao Del Eden, after which we drove to La Isabella for the Columbus ruins & museum & a delicious lunch on the beach front. Great restaurants in the area: your special night should be at Mares Restaurant with Chef Rafael Vasquez-Heinsen!, we ate three times at La Papillon with Chef Tomas, famous for his Pina Coladas. Andrea our personal chef & house keeper was a star… imagine getting up in the morning, going outside to sit under the lanai, over looking your private pool with the ocean glimmering & being served a wonderful breakfast of tasty dishes by Chef Andrea! She kept the Villa looking spotless & even asked to launder our clothes! Just sitting around the pool at the Villa, we had to keep the binoculars close for the best birding!! Tamara’s gardens surrounding the Villa were beautiful. The Villa had a great kitchen & electronics & internet connections. But the key to our fabulous vacation was Paul & Tamara!! They made sure everything went well & anticipated our every need. The Dominican Republic is a great vacation. Urban & rural, world history & solitary beaches, great weather & the beautiful people... bring your camera!"

  • Bosque Del Mar in December

    "Righ on the Beach - complex is close to the water, and this unit in particular is very close to the beach. The huge roof patio and grill was also very nice. Condo includes a lot of beach chairs, coolers, games, towels, etc. Roberto was extremely responsive over email. He got back to me with any questions immediately. Rio Mar resort is a short drive (5 minutes) or a long walk (20 minutes). You do need a car if you want to leave the complex for food, rain forest, restaurant. AC is permanently out in the living room - got a little warm in that room, but not miserable. Price was very competitive relative to other options nearby, and the price was a great value. I was very pleasantly surprised and feel this condo exceeded all our expectations."

  • Awesome Place to Stay

    "This is a great place to stay. It was a terrific location and in great shape. The detriment was the communication. Two days before I arrived I made contact with the only person I had a phone number or email for. I received nothing further on the questions and other info I was trying to obtain. My concierge sent me an email at 1 am before my 6 am flight and had not answered it by my arrival time. I then had no contact info, condo number, gate code etc to be able to check in."
