Our trip was wonderful!! The house is beautiful and a two min walk to the beach. It's in a secure location a little outside of town. The restaurants are incredibly good. Our favorites were Pate Palo in Santo Domingo and in Las Terrenas we loved Porto and la Yucca Caliente. We went whale watching in Samana (if you go, choose the company "Whale Samana") and did an ATV tour with the company indrinatour quad. Both were amazing! Our host arranged taxis for us, answered all of our questions so quickly and was incredibly helpful. I definitely give it a five thumbs up!!
The penthouse is exactly as pictured -- beautiful, modern, spotless, and secure. The private beach is gorgeous and only a short walk away.
The only negative is that apparently, the area turns off the power and water from 9-5pm for construction purposes on Fridays and a couple of hours Saturday morning. Imagine our surprise when everything shut off and no one on the property could explain why. Eventually that afternoon we spoke with a maid who told us it's a semi-regular occurrence. Welcome to the DR! Getting in touch with Guillaume during this time was difficult since he was traveling and I had to incur roaming charges on my cellphone to wait for him to call/text me back since there was no electricity and thus, no wifi. Once the power went back on, everything worked great except the wifi was intermittently slow, making Netflix close to impossible to watch. Not sure if Guillaume's other unit uses the same router, so that might be why. Not a big deal. If we had been informed about the electricity/water issue, it wouldn't have been an problem since we were gone most of the day anyway, but it would help to plan accordingly. Also, the hot tub never actually heated.
Just a note if you do plan on driving here. We came from STI airport in Santiago. Make sure you are diligent in your route planning and give at least 4-5 hours of travel time. It is certainly not as easy as (website hidden) Maps would lead you to believe.
All in all, we would still absolutely stay here again knowing what we know about the house and the area. Las Terrenas is beautiful and there is so much to do and see. Thanks Guillaume!
Guillaume' s place is (website hidden) in all bedrooms, beautiful ensuite bathrooms again in each bedroom and huge bay windows overlooking a pool to be shard with 4 or 5 other families, yet only ever saw one, living there year long and extremely nice. But the real luxury lies in the 2' stroll that leads you to the most amazing little private beach. No restaurants, no ugly longchairs, just a wild gorgeous piece of paradise with turquoise water. Now you need to take your car and drive 6kms to find the restaurants and shops of Las Terrenas, or drive the same distance the other way and be at Limon. Loved it! only advice is: pack your nespresso, the machine is in the place but the capsules are sold for over 3 times the price in town!!
A beautiful home with great features and very close to the beach. Guillaume was very responsive for all requests--in booking and once there.
Excelente anfitrión y excelente lugar ,descanso total, se cumplieron todas mis expectativas con respecto a este paraíso, Guillarme es muy atento y cordial, ojala pueda regresar para mostrar a mas familiares la belleza de este sitio tranquilo ideal para desconectarse del mundo. Muchas gracias.
An outstanding stay, short but 5 stars!!! This place was a dream, the location was simply stunning along with the house it self. Literally something out of Hollywood with its design and ammenities. Super clean with spectacular views of the hills and surrounding lush tropical Palm trees. I HIGHLY recommend this place for its value and sheer beauty. We briefly met Guillermo as we were leaving and immediately saw how cool and laid back he was. I look forward to staying here again in the very near future and possibly buying something as well.
We stayed for 11 days in the PH and it was absolutely fantastic. Guillaume was very attententive, checked in frequently via text to see if we needed anything, arranged taxi to/from the airport. The penthouse is just like the photos, very spacious and very clean. The young lady that came every other day to clean was nice and did a thorough cleaning, provided fresh towel for shower and beach and did our laundry. Not that there was much when all day is spent by the pool and beach. We accessed our Netflix movies and my husband enjoyed the PS 3. The beach was extremely nice and quite private. Many times we were the only ones on it or maybe another couple or 2. It was a very short walk, few minutes from the PH. The grounds were well attended to and we felt very safe. The town was about a 20 minute ride away via ATV that we rented and we found a few markets, pharmacy, fruit stands and the fish market - so easy to get supplies to make nice breakfast and grill fresh fish dinners at the penthouse. I highly recommend without hesitation.
Guillaume's residence was even more beautiful than depicted in the photo. His home is in a tranquil complex a short walk from a beautiful uncrowded beach. Monsieur Bouzonnet is a wonderful host who knows how to be helpful while valuing your privacy. The town of LasTerranas offers good dining in a relaxed atmosphere. We never felt concerned about our safety. Moreover there is plenty to do in the way of hiking, snorkeling, tennis, Zip lining, and fishing within a 20-40 minute drive. We flew into Santa Domingo and Las Terranas was a two hour drive on Rte 7, a relatively new highway. If you want a shorter drive, the airport in Samana is only 30 minutes away. I highly recommend Guillaume's residence though I am reluctant to do so as it might limit it availability to me in the future.
We stayed at the Esperanza Residence in the second week of December this year. We never wanted to leave! The apartment was exactly as pictured and even better. The space was extremely comfortable and quite luxurious! Esperanza is a gated community about a 10 minutes drive from the town of Las Terrenas. The gated community is extremely safe and has a security gate with a guard. Our host Guillaume was extremely sweet. Our flight on the way in was canceled due to a storm so our vacation was cut a day short. Guillaume, offered us to stay an extra day for free to make up for our lost day. Also, upon arrival our apartment smelled very strongly of chemicals due to some construction that was going on in the unit next to us. Guillaume, let us move to the penthouse unit for the rest of our stay at no extra charge and we were very pleased.
The apartments are wonderful and so is the complex and pool. The are BBQ's next to the pool and the pool its self is gorgeous. Everything is exactly like the pictures show and even better. The beach is literally a 30 second walk from the house and is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. We swam everyday, went into town for groceries. Several nights, we went out to dinner at some of the local restaurants. If you stay here, you will need to rent a car as it is a little outside of town but that is what makes it so peaceful and special. Guillaume also had a cat, who we absolutely fell in love with named Jean Frio, who if you ever get to meet, you are very lucky.. Needless to say, the coolest, sweetest and smartest cat with magical powers!! We are already making plans to return to Esperanza as soon as we possibly can. It was paradise!!
Guillaume was a great host and his condo was fantastic. He met us at the unit and walked us through to explain everything. He also gave us some recommendations for places to go in town. After that he was responsive to any questions I had. The unit itself was beautiful with very nice, high quality construction and all the amenities you need. The beach is a very short walk and totally private. I would come back to stay here in a heart beat. Thank you Guillaume!
