Our time in Paradise was made complete by staying at this most beautiful, warm, natural and friendly house in Las Terrenas. We will certainly stay again and look forward to returning to the colorful garden and bird filled compound. The open air outside dining room, was so charming with it’s palapa roof and hanging ceiling fans. We cooked dinner out on the grill almost nightly and drank our coffee in the coz lounge chairs in the shade. The house was very private and beautiful and a one minute walk to the picturesque sandy beaches. The location was perfect in that we were far enough away from the town buzz for it to be serene and quiet and yet close enough to walk in for ice cream or dinner at any one of the many delicious eateries.
We didn’t rent a car and found we didn’t need one. We did however rent a scooter to get to Restaurant Luis for the incredible coconut beach, big waves and best sea food in town. This was a repeat adventure (which was recommended by Leslie herself).
Leslie was the most generous and attentive host we could ever imagine. She treated us like we were family, making sure we felt comfortable and cared for in every way we needed. She even bought us treats on our drive from the bus stop to the house. She made us feel welcome to call her at any hour of the day or night with any question or concern we might have. The other house on the property was magnificent and I could imagine an incredible family reunion with the use of both houses and the gardens. Honestly, this place is the dreamiest place I could imagine staying. Simple, understated, cozy, comfortable, airy, organic, luxurious, serene and fun.
