We really enjoyed Wally's house. Great view perfect pool. The power and water went off periodically but it wasn't often. The fans are adequate so you really don't need AC to sleep. The driveway hill is very steep for walking so make sure you have a car or a scooter which are easy to rent in Las Terrenas. We enjoyed the peninsula very much. Thank you Wally!!!
My partner Ashley and I had an outstanding time at Villa Vista. The home was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed to make our week long stay feel at home on top of a mountain paradise.... with a KILLER view!
We just got back from an amazing 4 day getaway at Wally's beautiful home. As in other reviews, the place is even more outstanding in person! The view is priceless and so breathtaking. My husband did not want to even leave the home to explore since he felt so great there. Fully equipped kitchen, you will find it ALL. Awesome music system that we used while enjoying the pool and we even had a nice family bbq. It literally felt as if it would our home that is how comfortable the house felt. Linens are comfortable, decor is tasteful, water pressure was perfect and never had any issues with hot water which is typical in DR. Rogelio is an amazing caretaker. Humble and have lots of helpful tips about las terrenas. Looking forward to booking for a month next time!
We had the most amazing stay!! The house looks just like the pictures and is truly stunning. The bedrooms are comfortable and roomy enough to fit 6 people no problem. Getting to the house is interesting as it does sit atop a very steep hill, but it wasn't an issue for our car and it made for a good workout walking back up from the beach! Wally was very helpful with our ever changing arrival times and Rogelio was waiting for us when we got to the house. He is very helpful, called us a cab the first day so we could get groceries and was around if we needed anything. The felt pretty safe, it is somewhat secluded so if you want to explore las terranas (or just get groceries) you should rent a car for sure. The easiest way to do that is to walk down the path to the beach and ask for help at the small hotel there you will run into. We rented a car for about half of our stay to explore some of the downtown which has lots of nice restaurants. Overall I would definitely recommend this house it was the trip of a lifetime!!
We have just returned from a fantastic three week holiday at Villa Buena Vista. Truly a little piece of
This spacious, well-designed two-storey villa with a magnificent view, is in the ideal location:
By car: 20 minutes from El Catey Airport, 12 minutes from the town of Las Terrenas (gas, grocery stores
and restaurants) and 5 minutes from miles of unspoilt beaches (Playa Coson). Luis’ is a charming casual
restaurant on the beach with excellent seafood and Casa Coson’s restaurant is two minutes from the
villa. The highway seems brand new and connects all the major points of interest in the area.
The villa is clean and airy, and the property is pristinely kept. Looks just like the photos. There are 2
other villas on the same development but the property is designed to maintain privacy and the sense
of peaceful seclusion. The Infinity swimming pool is beautiful and there are inflatable lounge chairs that
allow you to float peacefully in the water while baking in the hot Dominican sun. There is a charcoal grill
perfect for evening cookouts.
Rogelio (guardian/groundskeeper) and his wife Reina (housekeeper) are very friendly and most helpful.
They speak only Spanish. They live in their own house on the premises and are always within reach.
Wally (the host) responds instantly to any queries over email.
1. A basic knowledge of Spanish is absolutely essential, or at the very least, the interactive free
google translation app.
2. At least a 2x4 or preferably 4x4 vehicle for negotiating steep gradients to the villa. If you plan to
go on roadtrips to nearby areas, beware of the pot holes found on the older roads!
3. There is WiFi in the house, which is very nice, however there is minimal cellular “data” in the
region, so you cannot rely on your cellphone during excursions. Be sure to print out some maps
or bring a guidebook or GPS, especially if you plan to drive yourself from the airport to the villa.
Overall, we had an amazing time at Villa Buena Vista and hope we can return soon!
Couldn't have been better. Everything was absolutely perfect. Thanks for everything I will definitely be back!
This beautiful property is located just a few minutes from both of the best beaches in las terrenas, Coson and Playa Bonita, yet it provides a wonderful private space to enjoy with great views of the coast line. In person is breath taking, we stayed 7 nights, the house was fully equipped, the kitchen had everythig you would ever need, I felt like a chef since it had more utensils than my own kitchen. The care taker of the property Rogelio, is the nicests man, always with a great attitude to help, provide for what you need and is always available. He also provides security and he may pass by, to check on the guets which is great. The beds are super comfortable and the water heater works amazingly, which is great because in the DR, sometimes is hard to find good hot water. The owner Wally is so nice and answers really fast, so it makes you feel very comfortable. The house is pet friendly and our dogs felt very happy since the house has a nice yard for them to run around. Eventhough we had no babbies we also notice that the house had a play pen which is nice for the guest that do. Overall it was paradise and our stay was perfect we felt at home, it was clean, big and private. This was actually the 6th time I stay at las Terrenas, in Samana and it was the best expirience. I will definitely stay again hopefully everytime I dicide to go back. I recommend this house 150%.
Little piece of paradise on earth is the only way to describe Wally's wonderful villa in Las Terrenas. The panoramic view is breathtaking, the pool kept us cool thru out the day, and the beautiful beach of Coson is only a 10min walk. The rooms are all a good size, and the villa is equip with everything you need for a pleasant and comfortable stay. Great for family to see Samana and it's natural beauty and not too far off from restaurants and supermarkets. I whole heartily recommend this lovely villa and it's stupendous vantage point to anyone, whether traveling with family or a few friends. I cannot wait for my next trip to Samana and staying at Villa vista mozzafiato sull'oceano....... Ramon and family.
