Lovely, quiet beach front home
We had a wonderful week long family vacation in Villa Allegre. Punta Bonita is a beautiful, quiet beach. This home is perfectly situated directly on Playa Bonita. We enjoyed getting up each day, walking across the lawn and spending the day on the beach: surfing, swimming, snorkeling and walking. We highly recommend contracting the additional services of the housekeeper/cook, AltaGracia, for daily breakfast and lunch. She is a wonderful cook and host. It is a pleasure to walk in off the beach to one of her delicious lunches. She prepared fresh fish, lobster, shrimp and a host of local specialties during our stay. Our family looks forward to future visits.
We had a family vacation at Villa Allegra. The location of this house is fantastic. Beach front! Nothing but a pedestrian walk between the garden and the beach. Our experience was everything what we were looking for. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Villa Allegra is a great property with many amenities, great location. We felt as if we were on our own private island!.The staff (Alta) is friendly and thoughtful to detail.
Overall, one of the most relaxing and beautiful places in the world. I would highly recommend this property for a family vacation.
Best Beach Property
We stayed in Villa Allegra for two weeks at the beginning of June. We had reserved the villa back in December. As I was showing the villa to one of my family members, I read the last review. Obviously, we became concerned and considered renting another villa. We talked to the owners who reassured us of the great condition of the villa. Well, great condition is an understatement. This was our third time in Terrenas, and by far Villa Allegra is the best property we have rented even our oldest son says he wants lo live there! The breeze from the ocean is felt in all areas of the house, and the house is kept immaculate. We went to the beach each day and bought oysters from a young guy- Michel- who also brought us fresh fish and octopus, this all in front the house! The help, Alta, prepares the best fried fish I have ever tasted. Alta was a delight. We would wake up with the smell of fresh brew coffee. A couple times she went to the market to buy us things we needed. Las Terrenas as a whole is not for the pampered traveller, but if you like it in the "raw" this is the place for you. Love it, recommend it, planning to go back.
Description misrepresented, overrated
The villa is placed in a most beautiful place of Punta Bonita, with miles of unobstructed view of blue sky and coral reefed sea, gorgeous palm trees, other villas at reasonable distance.
BUT (there is a long list of buts, proving that a lot of elements in the villa description were untrue, or misleading). Most of the problem are related to geographical position , and to poor maintenance.
The villa is placed outside the city limits of Las Terrenas, and as per owner admission, many services, like water, electricity, internet don’t perform as they should. Do not expect Internet to work, except for a total of couple of hours a day, intermittently. We had no internet for five days. Nowhere in the description of the villa is its position outside the city mentioned.
Many other problems were due to the neglect and poor management. The villa is managed by AIC; they are supposed to bring villa to the best, before the new renters come. This did not happen. When we came, the bedrooms in the bungalow were stinking with mold; nobody could sleep there ; We found the boiler broken, so we had no hot water for five days. The grill did ignite; someone came, but did not fix it properly. The pool broke; seven days later the pool has not ready to be used. We tripped on some broken wood on the terrace. None of the ceiling fans in the living room worked.One had to be replaced. Many electrical outlets do not work (example: the ones by the nightstands; therefore no nightlight). TV down for non paid subscription.
The villa is a cesspool of cockroaches and mosquitoes. Most of roaches were, and still are in the kitchen ( under furniture, in the drawers)and upper bedroom.Please see attached pictures. Fumigation was done outside the house, with no success. We killed some with ORO. Mosquitoes are very aggressive; I had to see a doctor to treat my very bad reaction. Please see pictures.
Security is another issue: The village has a guarded main entrance, but the entrance from the beach is very accessible. ON Sunday, May 1st, three separate vendors trespassed the backyard; one went as far as in the kitchen, to get a knife.
In many other days we had many workers (4-6 for each job, coming one by one or in small groups) to fix the mentioned problems.Very few introduced themselves or had an ID.Having so many people around at all times of the day made us very uncomfortable.
We sent at least 20
It is very unfortunate that you felt compelled to write such an unjust review of our property and villa, especially after many years of very happy and satisfied guests that have stayed there, and none that experienced the horrible untruths that you wrote. It is not a 5 star resort by any means, but Villa Allegra is our humble vacation home, that we have chosen to share with others. The pictures on the website are accurate and very representative of the property and the surrounding area.
My wife and 2 young kids stayed out our villa for Spring break, just 3 weeks before your arrival…and we experienced none of what you mention. It was, as usual, a fantastic vacation for the four of us.
Your rental consisted of 3 weeks, and your specific request was that you wanted to use your own broker/manager, and not our contracted one. We agreed to that, considering we also knew her, and also paid her the commission directly. Our broker/manager was not contracted for your stay, by your own personal request. It was you and your broker’s responsibility to notify us of any inconveniences you experienced, so we could address them. To mention that our management company AIC was not helpful is just not fair to them. They were very active in trying to address your concerns.
You actually didn’t contact me until 2 weeks into your 3 week stay, to complain about many things – of which most could have been addressed and corrected in the first few days of your stay, if I had only know. Other things, such as miniature beach crabs in our back yard, or mosquito bites that sent you to the doctor, or that you needed a larger toilet…are things we unfortunately could not assist with.
We were advised by our housekeeper that came to the residence routinely, and then daily during the last week – that you and your two guests lived in our villa in quite disarray with food and garbage left throughout the property, and soiled linens on the beds. All these conditions may very well have attracted pests from the tropical outdoors, while the villa remained completely open throughout the day and early evening. When we spoke, I was extremely sympathetic to all you experienced…and wanted desperately to address the concerns. I offered to refund the final week of your rental, although I was under no obligation to do so – but you were insistent that you wanted to stay, and threatened us with such an unfavorable review. At our expense, we had our housekeeper come to the villa every day.
A great villa for a great vacation!
My family just returned from Las Terrenas, where we stayed at the beautiful Villa Allegra. Villa Allegra is a warm and inviting villa with lots of charm and character, as well as a breathtaking view across its pool and rolling green lawn toward the gorgeous Playa Bonita. For those of us who like to swim, Villa Allegra has a very large pool and, just beyond its signature blue gate, an incomparable beach with calm waters and no crowds. If nature’s beauty combined with peace and quiet is what you crave, Villa Allegra will deliver. We highly recommend Villa Allegra.
There are three special aspects of Villa Allegra we must highlight. First, working with Villa Allegra’s owner was wonderful. We had many questions about the villa and the Las Terrenas area. Villa Allegra’s owner was knowledgeable and responsive, and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. In addition, the owner’s property management company was responsive and provided excellent service.
Second, we must highlight the charm of the villa itself. Villa Allegra is a Caribbean style, with cool white walls and rich brown wood shutters and doors. Every morning, we opened up the villa’s louvered folding doors to enjoy another “day in paradise”. The view toward Playa Bonita is magnificent.
Finally, we must highlight Villa Allegra’s marvelous location. It is located on Punta Bonita, the point where two beautiful beaches, Playa Bonita and Playa Coson, meet. Here the waters are calm and crystal clear. And no crowds! On most days we were the only people on the beach, making it feel like we had our own private beach.
If you want to see more people, the very vibrant town of Las Terrenas is a short drive away, where you can enjoy a culturally diverse mix of Dominican, French, and Italian and other international residents and tourists. If you choose not to cook in the villa’s large and fully-appointed kitchen, Las Terrenas has many excellent restaurants where you can choose among a variety of delicious cuisines.
Staying at Villa Allegra, with its magnificent views, charm and character, warm and vibrant environment, large pool, and excellent management, made our vacation perfect.
Rent an ATV quad in town and discover the beautiful shoreline and non automobile access areas alongside beach and within town.
