  • Grate for family

    "We stayed at Wave Dance Jan14th-Feb 10th 2015.We were a large group and rented both units, 5 adults and 4 children (12,10,5,3). We loved our stay in the DR!! The house was clean and comftorble. Upon arrival we arranged Geoff and Peggy were very helpful with all ( and we had a lot) of questions! They helped us arrange pick up from the airport by Jose, we flew in to Santiago de los Caballeros, if you can avoid flying in to there i would do so!! I was a 1 1/2 hour drive to Cabarete. Puerto Plata is only 30 min away! We arrived at the house late evening and we were greeted by Peggy's assistant to show us around the house to get us settled which was very nice!, Jose also took us in tho Puerto Plata that night to grocery shop so nice!!! We chose to not rent a car while in the DR and it turned out just fine! Jose lent us a phone so we could call him to arrange travel as we needed. He took us on a day trip to the most wonderful beach, and let us stay all day and play!!There was a small grocery store right down the street that was fine for day to day things, and once a week we got a cab in to Puerto Plata. We would walk to town during to day on the beach or the street and it was fine,a little stressful on the street with the kids!! DO NOT walking al night!! I repeat DO NOT WALK AT NIGHT!! The house was very family friendly, all the doors to the pool area lock and the back top deck does not have assess to the ground floor, so we felt safe with the little ones! The house is in a gated comity and all the guars were so nice and friendly! We felt very safe! We we're a large group with lots of different interest so we went our own ways some days but we found a few things that all of us could do together, and all ages could participate! We went almost daily in the early evening to Kaiceitos Circus School,the kids LOVED it!! We took a day trip with Kayak River Adventures and it was one of the highlights of out trip!T hey picked up up in the morning and provided snacks and a dinner cooked by a family over a open fire that was to die for! This was a great adventure for all ages, we had ages from 65 to 3 and they all enjoyed it! These two things we're very affordable:) We all also enjoyed the horse back rides that are right on the beach! Our big splurge was Ocean Wold in Puerto Plata, we took the older kids to swim wit the dolphins and it was worth every penny!!It was a fun place!I think we had the most fun just hanging at the house at the pool and at the beach!WILL BE BACK!"

  • Quiet , Secure, Affordable...<--100% accurate

    "I'm not one for long reviews but this property was everything I needed it to be. It was VERY quiet which is one of my main reasons for booking this villa vice a hotel with children running everywhere. The place was very clean and spacious. Im kind of spoiled so I was looking for a place with a modern american feel more than a native feel. I found a find blend of both in this place. Not all areas in Sosua are safe however whether I was coming home at 3am or leaving out at noon I saw armed security. The pool was great especially since there was a heat wave during my stay. The landscaping in the backyard around the pool was also pleasant. The management was very nice and accommodating. The office is right up the street about 5 minutes away. Once you leave the villas tucked away location you come to the main road. Cabarete beach is 15 minutes drive to the right and Sosua beach is 7 minutes drive to the left. Excellent location! The only thing that wasnt absolutely perfect was the laundry room was not available. From what I understand the laundry area is more for the maid than the guests. Since my stay was so short (4 days) it didnt cause too much trouble. The place is good for a solo trip or a cozy couples retreat. I would definitely stay here again."

  • An Ideal Vacation

    "Our first impression was positive. When we entered the grounds, we were greeted with a beautifully maintained property. The unit is all you can ask for - the views of the ocean from the living area and the master bedroom are magnificent, the furniture is very up-to-date, and new appliances had been installed in the kitchen the day before our arrival. Both bedrooms and the living area have TVs and DVD players. There are plenty of DVDs and books to choose from. Wayne and Kim have made sure to create a very comfortable and desirable atmosphere for their guests. In addition, Wayne and Kim were kind enough to recommend places of interest and local restaurants in Cabarete that helped us make the vacation a 10. Cabarete was great - beaches, restaurants on the beach, activities and music can be found throughout the town. We plan to vacation in the DR again."

  • Heaven on Earth!

    "My (20 year old) daughter and I spent our Christmas vacation at Casa Lila almost one month ago. We had never been to the Dominican Republic before and we were not disappointed! The villa was beautiful- just as pictured. The doors and shutters opening out to the pool made for delightful indoor/outdoor living. The weather was perfect and there was a wonderful breeze that -for the most part- made air conditioning unnecessary. The beach is so close to the villa; just a very short stroll through a quaint covered pathway. And once there, you are overcome by the absolute beauty of the scene. I honestly don't think I've ever seen more breath taking beaches as there were in Las Terrenas; the water was clear and always at the perfect temperature. We had hoped we wouldn't need a vehicle the whole time but the villa's distance from the village required a car (I was a little worried about the driving but it was actually kind of a fun adventure). Everyone was so kind and helpful and, although my daughter does speak Spanish, we found most people spoke several languages, including English. Overall, I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Las Terrenas. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!"
