Albertina's house was fantastic. While I didn't get a chance to meet her in person, she was easy to contact and her property manager was also very responsive and available 24/7 by cell. The house itself is beautiful - even better than the photos - and a pristine beach is only 3-4 minutes on foot. Not to mention sailing rentals right down the road and tasty restaurants in town. We also appreciated the kind nightly security man, and wonderful recommendations to places such as El Limon and Playa Coson. The only suggestion I might have would be to include a price up-charge for daily maid service, instead of 1-2x weekly. I would definitely come again and stay at Albertina's.
Cinco maravillosos días en Las Terrenas. La casa de Albertina está a pocos metros de una tranquila playa de aguas transparentes... el paraíso. La casa está muy bien acondicionada, con tres espaciosas habitaciones dobles, una fantástica terraza y una encantadora piscina privada. Muy recomendable para unos días de relajación total o para visita el resto de la península
La maison nous a été loué via Bea Location, une agence immobilière de Las Terrenas qui est très efficace. Chaque fois que nécessaire, ils se sont déplacés immédiatement pour nous satisfaire (pb de connexion wifi, moustiquaires éventrées par un rat, robinet de douche à changer, traitement contre les cafards...). Le personnel de la maison (femme de ménage, jardinier, gardien de nuit) était très sérieux, gentil. Nous nous sommes sentis vraiment en vacances et en sécurité.
Quant à la maison, elle est très agréable à vivre : très calme, spacieuse, à 200m de la plage. Nous avons passé un mois fabuleux ici. Seul bémol : l'équipement de la cuisine est un peu obsolète (gazinière, casseroles..) . Nous voudrions y retourner des que possible.
We enjoyed a lovely stay at this villa in March 2013. The house is very pretty, really clean, well equipped and spacious (perfect for 2 families as there are 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms) and the owners (Albertina and Claudia) were very pleasant to deal with, answered all our questions, arranged taxi pick up. Wi-fi worked great, beach was 2 min walk, pool was cleaned every other day. We loved the house so much, we spent most of our time there! The town was a bit far (30 min walk) and not easy to navigate with a stroller but with a 4-wheeler or car it would have been much easier, I would advise renting one of these. Moises, the local house manager was also easy to reach if we had questions. There is also an on-site security guard who patrols the property every night. That took some getting used to, but it did make us feel safe. We would definitely stay here again. Many thanks Albertina and Claudia for such a smooth stay!
Albertina was so helpful in every way. House is beautiful, very comfortable and pool is a great addition. We has a wonderful vacation in every way.
It was a very Nice trip , the house was exactly same description... It was just perfect holiday .
Thank's for everything Albertina ;)
Take care ciao'
