  • Best vacation stay, we will come back every year!

    "Starting several months before our trip i was in contact with the owner Leslie, she made it so easy to make arrangements for our trip and also very helpfull suggestions. The next step was being in contact with the property managers in Las Terrenas, Noemi and Alex, both of whom were very helpfull. upon arrival Alex met us at the house and gave us a quick tour, the house and property are BEAUTIFUL, lots of open air and space, nice and clean and comfortable, we attribute this in large part to the housekeeper Marisol, who is AWESOME, so nice and friendly, she went above and beyond by helping rearrange a bed and mosquito net for one of us so that we could sleep better, totally made her trip better! thank you Marisol.. The area around the house is also spectacular, just a short walk out the front gate and you are on the beach! clear blue water, palms and white sand. most all of the good restaurants, activities, bars and shops are within walking distance, there is also a taxi stand close by if you wish. the closest restaurants to the house are the hotel Alisei, which also has spa facilities and a pool. as you walk down the beach road you get to more restaurants, we loved the one love surf shack, tres lunas, and el pescadroes, which had the best most friendly staff and yummy and inexpensive food. a short walk past this area and you are in the main town, there are many souvenier shops, art galleries and bars, there is a good sized grocery store, even a french bakery with the best croisants this side of Paris!, lots to see and do. i must add that the people of Las Terrenas are THE BEST! they are the most friendly and helpful i have met in some parts of the world. If you have extra time, i would recomend going to Samana, there is not alot to do there, but it is beautiful, only a short drive from LT. i know this is alot of info, but it truely is a magical place, and staying at La Paloma added to the joy....We will for sure be back in years to come, we are already planning next years trip."

  • Exceeded expectations!

    "Our stay a this beautiful villa exceeded our expectations. We are a family of 10, ages 11 through 70+. Everyone had their own room and bath (brothers shared twin room, sisters shared a king), which are beautifully furnished and cared for. The excellent staff (cook Maria, housekeeper Bindalinna, and pool maintenance, etc. Johnson) worked as a team to keep us well fed in clean, comfortable surroundings. The Google Translate App was our best friend, as we did not speak Spanish and no one on the staff spoke English. Somehow, we managed. I would advise letting the staff know (via Dominique) what you want in the way of grocercies, etc., and have them shop for you before you arrive ($60 shopping fee, plus cost of items purchased). I went to the Super Jumbo with Maria and she could have done better without me. The staff at Reception contacted taxis for us whenever we wanted to venture out farther than a golf cart would safely take us. It was a great Christmas vacation for everyone in the family."

  • Above and Beyond

    "Our family rented Sarah's villa over the Christmas holidays. Having been forced to change our original reservation for a different villa at the last minute, we were a little unsure about how this villa would turn out. We were blown away when we got there. Everything is exactly as described in the villa description. We were picked up promptly from the airport and our driver also took us to get groceries. We were there with 7 adults and 1 infant and the house felt spacious and easily accommodated all of us. The grounds were beautiful and very clean. Sarah was extremely helpful and answered all our questions quickly and thoroughly. We would definitely recommend renting scooters while there, it made it very easy to go to the beach and supermarket. You can do it without renting a car or scooter however, the shuttle to Cabarete and Sosua was on time and very efficient, the drivers were excellent. Probably one of the best aspects of this place was how quiet and secure it was. No city noise and the grounds are well protected and kept up. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. Coming with a large family and an infant this place more than suited our needs and made for a relaxing and refreshing vacation. Thanks Sarah for all you did to help us out! We had a fabulous time!"

  • Wonderful home away from home!

    "We stayed here in 2012 for a month. This year (2014) we returned for another month. It was a comfortable, clean apartment in 2012 and this year it was even better with the improvements that Tom, the owner, has done. We enjoy our time on the beach...only minutes away...and our time in the pool. The numerous restaurants and bars in Costambar are excellent serving Dominican, Canadian, Italian and German fare at reasonable prices. We ate most breakfasts and some dinners at the apartment but eating out is so reasonable we took advantage of being spoiled. The kitchen is very well stocked with cooking equipment and the local corner store is very accommodating if you choose to eat all of your meals in. The apartment and property is very clean and well maintained by Myrium and management."
