Villa Sofia was the perfect vacation rental!

We just got back from our vacation at Villa Sofia. We had six adults and four children staying at the house and we had more than enough space. The house itself was exactly as the pictures show it. It did not disappoint. However, the best part of the house was Josefina. She made the vacation completely relaxing and is an amazing chef. After going out to dinner a few times to some very well reviewed restaurants, we determined that Josefina's cooking was better than any food we could get anywhere else. She took very good care of all of us, and was a pleasure to be around.

The pools at the house were also perfect. The upper pool is deeper than the lower pool, so the older kids had fun jumping in the water. The lower pool has large ledges which were perfect for the two year old to play on. The set up could not have been any better. The house is also surrounded by vegetation, so it's very private.

The beach was only about a one minute walk from the house and is one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. The water was very warm and crystal clear. It was great for long walks, boogie boarding and swimming. There was quite a bit of sea life around the coral, so it was even good for snorkeling.

We had a wonderful vacation, and look forward to coming back again.

Villa Sofia is absolutely amazing!!!!

Villa Sofia is a wonderful property! Online pictures often look better than the real thing, but that is not the case with Villa Sofia; the house is even better in person than the online pictures. Every room is decorated to perfection with its own unique features. The main living spaces are comfortable and relaxing. The pools are perfect for lazing or swimming laps. The house is well equipped, as described on the website.

I can’t say enough for the staff of Villa Sofia! Josephina and Lala made our stay exceptional. They were helpful and kind. The house was always kept clean and is very well maintained. We had Josephina grocery shop and cook us breakfast daily. We also had Luis and Josephina cook us dinner four nights of our stay and it was fabulous! Michel, who is extremely pleasant, informative, helpful and responsive, did an exceptional job organizing our stay at the house. His website is very helpful in planning a trip to the area. We were delighted to meet the owner Patrick, who was also wonderful to work with. He put a lot of thought into the design, layout and comfort of guests when he built and furnished this home.

In our opinion, Villa Sofia sits in the best location of Las Terrenas for a relaxing vacation. It is in a quaint neighborhood within walking distance to some boutique like hotels and restaurants that run along Playa Bonita. It is wonderful having the option to eat in or out. When you walk to the beach you can pick Playa Bonita or Playa Coson.
I would recommend making plans to see the area; it’s a fascinating place to see and the people of Las Terrenas are so nice and welcoming. For activities we went horseback riding to El Limon, whale watching on the coast of Samana, had dinner in downtown Las Terrenas, and had massages at the house.

A few tidbits of information I was looking for in reviews before booking: While there is amazing snorkeling in the area, there is not any worthwhile snorkeling in walking distance of the house that we could find. The drinking water at the house was perfect – no need to worry there! We all felt completely safe, everywhere we went, our whole trip.

Everything about Villa Sofia was perfect for our group of 9 celebrating our 40th birthdays. I would highly recommend this rental property to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing vacation!

There is so much to say about this fabulous villa and its location in Las Terrenas. I will start with the flawless modern architecture of the villa itself. Beautifully decorated rooms, comfy beds and a perfect bunk room for the kids!!! Each suite was unique and well appointed. Josefina is a fabulous cook and worked very hard keeping us happy during our stay. The pool was AMAZING!!!!!!!! The only problem I had with the house was the lack of a comfy living area for us to lounge out of the sun. A short path takes you to a fantastic swimable beach. Palm trees, warm ocean water and very few touristas! The grocery store is not too far and had lots of items. For delicious pasteries Mi Corazon is where its at. Flora Tours will set up a horseback ride to El Limon Waterfall, totally worth it! We flew into Santo Domingo which is a little over 2 hours to Las Terrenas. The ride is SO beautiful that you barely notice how far it is. However, my elderly parents didn't enjoy it as much as us. If you want to get to the house quick, JetBlue flies into Samana 2x per week from JFK. The vibe is laid back and reminded me alot of my excursions to Africa. There are no huge resorts yet, but trust me, there will be!! Always felt completely safe. I typically don't go back to places I have been, but this place just might be the exception!

By far the BEST VILLA in Las Terrenas !!!

We recently vacationed on the wonderful island of Hispaniola and had the extreme pleasure of staying in the beautiful Villa Sofia.
We've stayed at other villas in Las Terrenas many times and they don't come close to Villa Sofia. NOT CLOSE ! Except maybe, Villa Julia, from the same owner !
The property was truly depicted and looks as described : it was lovely, spacious and very clean, with all the amenities you could possibly want, not to mention a great location to many fabulous restaurants, activities and attractions (like shopping , beautiful beaches and water sports) ! The home is beautiful, well maintained and extremely well appointed - how nice to have all those LED TVs, DVD players, iPod docking stations and WIFI ! Josefina, the housekeeper has been wonderful-friendly and helpful. I cannot thank the owner enough for his quick replies to my questions, no matter how unimportant some may have been. And a special mention to Jack and Michel at the agency for their warm welcome and precious help in our vacation organization.
We hate to leave but will return.
We would highly recommend Villa Sofia.

Spectacular Villa

My family of 7 just returned from a 10 day stay at Villa Sofia. We are accustomed to staying in high end properties. I like other reviewers found this property to be completely as advertised with no misrepresentation. We were warmly received by Josephina and shown around the property. The owner is pleasant and responsive. He was willing to work with us very generously on a booking glitch that was not his fault. Patrick has great follow up skills to verify that all was going as expected.

The Villa is a very well thought out architectural master piece! It is well put together which is difficult to do in a developing country. The bedrooms are private. The furnishings and the bedding are very comfortable. There are numerous outdoor areas to hang out in.

The house is sited on Cap Bonita equidistant between two very fine beaches...Playa Bonita and Playa Coson. It is a very short walk to either. My kids surfed on Playa bonita which had a good wave. The local surfers were pleasant and inviting which is unusual for countries like this who are swarmed with gringos. Playa Coson lies in the lee of the wind on the west side of Cap Bonita and has a beautiful beach. The trees on the Cape provide protection from the wind and flat swimming water free from dangerous rip currents that are prevelent on the island. We played coconut Bocci on Punta Bonita at the tip of the cape on the wide beach daily! There is another very good surf break on Coson in front of Luis's Restaurant a 45 minute walk to the west or 5 minute drive. This break has a big wave. There is a strong rip current here so be careful of children. My son and another fellow surfer resqued an old guy on a boogie board who was in full on panic mode here.

The dining and drinking options are numerous with in walking distance of Sophia. Of course las Terrenas has no shortage either.

Josaphina and Luis served a fine meal of Dorado one night and breakfast a few mornings. She was willing to fully cater the entire time if we so desired. We are pretty independant and enjoy the experience of shopping at the local markets, fruterias, carnicerias, panerias, etc and preparing fine meals at our leasure. It allows us to meet and mingle with the locals and get a more authentic experience. Las terrenas is as authentic as it gets!

I would recommend this villa and this owner to anyone with or with out kids.
