Guestbook comments from the owner

Email received on February 8th, 2013.

"Hello dear Patrick,

we were trying to put our guest review on your site already but i guess we did something wrong, because it is not there. This is our review and we are asking if you could put it on your site. Thank you very much.

And have a nice day.

We were staying on vacation in villa Sofia for 3 weeks, for the new year. We had a wonderful time. We are very grateful to mr. Patrick who made all our wishes come true. We are else very grateful for our lady Josefine who took care of us while we were staying there.

We were already in Dominican Republic - Punta Cana but this time we decided to visit Las Terenas and we were very happy about our choice. Villa that we were staying in was brand new, modern, full of nice colors, and placed in nice environment and everything was near, we had 2 minutes to beautiful beach and 3 minutes of driving with four wheels to town.

We are looking forward to come back again. Saso, Elena, Mark, Helena."

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The property is just as described if not better. It’s like a mini hotel all to yourself. Josefina did a wonderful job cleaning and feeding us as needed!!! More than we needed!!! If there is any improvement for the owner, I’d say the beds are hard (even the kids complained), he needs new sheets (I slept one night with my son in the pool room and the sheets were all pilled and scratchy). Even in the master, the pillows were all blown out. Not enough that we would not recommend this location. Just needs to spend $100 and get it fixed. Edoardo with the management company went out of his way helping. We can’t wait to go back. Paradise found....

Incredibly private yet accessible to everything

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away from the public-ness of the beautiful beach we were able to take part in the world only if we chose to do so.

The entire staff is to be commended on their hospitality and professionalism!

Many bucket-list items checked off on this adventure....whale watching, waterfalls, a unique ziplining experience, just to name a few.

To be able to come home to this beautifully maintained property was the cherry on top! ———-Villa Sofia is an oasis in paradise!

Wonderful Family experience!

We loved this villa. As a family with 6 teenagers and 4 adults, this was perfect. Everyone had a spot to relax and enjoy. Breakfasts were so great, staff so helpful. Highly recommend this villa for your next get away.

Paradise on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sofia exceeded all my expectations, not only with the perfect location seconds from the beach and a short drive into town, but also with the professionalism of the host and staff!

I celebrated my small wedding reception and the host put me in contact with the best wedding planners in Las Terrenas. The staff Josefina, Juana and the gentleman who helps keep the grounds clean they were outstanding and personal. The breakfast was 5-stars and the dinner was great!

I couldn't have asked for a better place to host the most important day in my life and it couldn't have had been possible if I did not have such a great team assisting me with details and information!

The villa is spacious, clean, and very accommodating .

Cannot wait to come back!!!

It exceeded my expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

i Just have to start by saying how beautiful this villa and location is. As soon as my family and i arrived i fell in love with the place. There where 5 of us staying at the villa and we had so much room. My wife and i had the master suite which was a great size.My brother loved the underwater suite.I was worried about Mozzies and how safe we where,but that was no problem at all. The pool area is to die for.We had the music on and just chilled around the pool in the daytime and in the evening we all gathered at the sitting area and relaxed and waited for our very tasty meal prepared by the chef (which i recommend).The beach is a stones throw away and if you turn to the left at the end of the path you will probably not see a better beach in your life! we used to walk to the end of the cove and relax on the sand. We rented ATV's for 3 day's that Elodie kindly organized for us. The staff in the house where very lovely and made sure everything was clean for us and made sure we where happy.We where there for 9 days and it was not long enough.Please take my word for it as we have travelled to some of the nicest properties in the world and this is up there with it.Look no further, as this villa and all the people involved will not disappoint you! Booking next trip back already..

Words can not explain how this property looks in person!!! I was so nervous about renting the property because it was so far away from Michigan. The homeowner Patrick assured me that we would love it!!! The pictures are exact what you see if not better. The 2 housekeepers were great and the breakfast was delicious! Security was amazing we felt safe and protected. We had an issue with the refrigerator but they resolved it quickly. I absolutely would suggest this beautiful villa because me and my girlfriends enjoyed it!! WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!!!!!!!
