About Arlette

We love our but due to the fact that we live in various places, the house is too beautiful to stay vacant various months.

Arlette purchased this villa in 2002

Why Arlette chose La Iglesia

We went for holiday and fall in love with Las Terrenas and this unique house. Las Terrenas is very special and we love this mixture of Carribean and European ambience.

What makes this villa unique

The views are spectacular. You are so close to all, but you feel very private in this large property (330.000 sqf land) and the staff is the guarantee to enjoy your holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Apologies for the delayed note. Just wanted to tell you what a wonderful

time we had. You house is a work of art. And filled with works of art! How

beautiful. And Lugo, Maribel and Nanny were lovely. Amazing food.

We look forward to coming again!

Simply wonderful.....a gem with absolute privacy

This was our best holiday since years. Never been in such a well decorated and classy home in Caribbean. Perfect service and absolute privacy on a very large property. We want to come back asap

A group of 6 of my close friends friends stayed here over the span of 4 days and had one of the best trips of our lives. The staff and owner did a tremendous job and we would definitely come back. My only recommendation would be if you are renting by a car to map out where the house is so that you have a good understanding of where to go as there are no addresses. It is best to arrange someone from the house to drive you to and from the airport.

Perfect vacation house and staff

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this beautiful four bedroom vacation house. It's

beautifully furnished with artwork and updated facilities. The house is

perched up on the hill, the large surrounding grounds in the gated area

felt very safe with amazing views of the surrounding hills and ocean.

We enjoyed our meals overlooking the ocean. Each night we sat and drink

wine overlooking the beautifully lit pool and peacefully lit landscape.

The master bedroom upstairs felt very secluded from the rest of the

house and even had its own balcony and Hammock. The staff was excellent.

They went to the market to help us pick out local foods and cooked

almost all of our meals. Their cooking was excellent. Lugo was very

helpful and would drive us around the area to different excursions. The

beaches seemed a little far to walk to so we would use his services to

get to the many beautiful local beaches. We highly recommend the

horseback ride to the waterfall. We also did zip lining and scuba diving

which we loved. The owner was very responsive and available and

helpful. Although the surrounding area is poor this house felt very safe

and modern and we enjoyed our vacation very much and will be back.

Incredible house, incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults and 4 children) just had an amazing week at the villa. Everything is just as described. It was very easy to communicate with Carlos, the owner, and yes, Maribel, and Nani are great cooks!!! I could only repeat what is described in the other reviews already.

Love at first sight!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was love at first sight. My wife saw the house at homeaway and couple of hours later we had rented it and booked the flights. We rented the house first in June and came back in September. My whole family, 6 of us, spent 11 amazing days in Las Terrenas. The owners are great people who spent a lot of time on the phone and in emails making sure we knew all the local tips and activities. They were very conscientious about making sure that everything worked perfectly.

First of all, the house and grounds were exactly as it was described to be in the way of comfort, beauty, location, walking distance to all places, privacy and security. Maribel and Nanny, the housekeepers were lovely and very accommodating. Maribel is a wonderful cook, a real chef! - you will love her meals.

The house is spectacular. We wanted to go for some excursions but at the end we stayed the entire time at the villa, its chill out areas, the pool on top of this little hill overlooking the ocean. We never before had such a wonderful experience of freedom and peace.

Everything is in walking distance. Even though, once you reach the villa on top of this beautiful hill you feel far away from everything, a real hideaway with pure privacy and in walking distance back to life. Normally the other villas in this peer group we checked out are too far away from town and its wonderful restaurants and night life. This vila is more a estate since the plot has more than 300,000 sq ft.

We will come back, hopefully very soon. Please keep it the way it is…..wonderful..!!
