Villa Allegra is located in one of the most beatiful beaches Las Terrenas offers: Playa Bonita. The main house has 2 bedrooms with exceptional ocean view. It has a large pool that overlooks the oversize garden and ocean. Villa Allegra is a preserved paradise. The design of the house is as open as possible to retain the contact with the tropical garden as much as possible and to guarantee the spectacular view onto the beach from nearly every angle of the villa, while assuring the tropic breeze to ventilate the house without barriers. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern domestic appliances. The rent includes a cleaning lady from 9:00-1:00 three times a week.. If needed, it is possible to hire extra help.
We had a family vacation at Villa Allegra. The location of this house is fantastic. Beach front! Nothing but a pedestrian walk between the garden and the beach. Our experience was everything what we were looking for. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Villa Allegra is a great property with many amenities, great location. We felt as if we were on our own private island!.The staff (Alta) is friendly and thoughtful to detail.
Overall, one of the most relaxing and beautiful places in the world. I would highly recommend this property for a family vacation.
We stayed in Villa Allegra for two weeks at the beginning of June. We had reserved the villa back in December. As I was showing the villa to one of my family members, I read the last review. Obviously, we became concerned and considered renting another villa. We talked to the owners who reassured us of the great condition of the villa. Well, great condition is an understatement. This was our third time in Terrenas, and by far Villa Allegra is the best property we have rented even our oldest son says he wants lo live there! The breeze from the ocean is felt in all areas of the house, and the house is kept immaculate. We went to the beach each day and bought oysters from a young guy- Michel- who also brought us fresh fish and octopus, this all in front the house! The help, Alta, prepares the best fried fish I have ever tasted. Alta was a delight. We would wake up with the smell of fresh brew coffee. A couple times she went to the market to buy us things we needed. Las Terrenas as a whole is not for the pampered traveller, but if you like it in the "raw" this is the place for you. Love it, recommend it, planning to go back.
The villa is placed in a most beautiful place of Punta Bonita, with miles of unobstructed view of blue sky and coral reefed sea, gorgeous palm trees, other villas at reasonable distance.
BUT (there is a long list of buts, proving that a lot of elements in the villa description were untrue, or misleading). Most of the problem are related to geographical position , and to poor maintenance.
The villa is placed outside the city limits of Las Terrenas, and as per owner admission, many services, like water, electricity, internet don’t perform as they should. Do not expect Internet to work, except for a total of couple of hours a day, intermittently. We had no internet for five days. Nowhere in the description of the villa is its position outside the city mentioned.
Many other problems were due to the neglect and poor management. The villa is managed by AIC; they are supposed to bring villa to the best, before the new renters come. This did not happen. When we came, the bedrooms in the bungalow were stinking with mold; nobody could sleep there ; We found the boiler broken, so we had no hot water for five days. The grill did ignite; someone came, but did not fix it properly. The pool broke; seven days later the pool has not ready to be used. We tripped on some broken wood on the terrace. None of the ceiling fans in the living room worked.One had to be replaced. Many electrical outlets do not work (example: the ones by the nightstands; therefore no nightlight). TV down for non paid subscription.
The villa is a cesspool of cockroaches and mosquitoes. Most of roaches were, and still are in the kitchen ( under furniture, in the drawers)and upper bedroom.Please see attached pictures. Fumigation was done outside the house, with no success. We killed some with ORO. Mosquitoes are very aggressive; I had to see a doctor to treat my very bad reaction. Please see pictures.
Security is another issue: The village has a guarded main entrance, but the entrance from the beach is very accessible. ON Sunday, May 1st, three separate vendors trespassed the backyard; one went as far as in the kitchen, to get a knife.
In many other days we had many workers (4-6 for each job, coming one by one or in small groups) to fix the mentioned problems.Very few introduced themselves or had an ID.Having so many people around at all times of the day made us very uncomfortable.
We sent at least 20
My family just returned from Las Terrenas, where we stayed at the beautiful Villa Allegra. Villa Allegra is a warm and inviting villa with lots of charm and character, as well as a breathtaking view across its pool and rolling green lawn toward the gorgeous Playa Bonita. For those of us who like to swim, Villa Allegra has a very large pool and, just beyond its signature blue gate, an incomparable beach with calm waters and no crowds. If nature’s beauty combined with peace and quiet is what you crave, Villa Allegra will deliver. We highly recommend Villa Allegra.
There are three special aspects of Villa Allegra we must highlight. First, working with Villa Allegra’s owner was wonderful. We had many questions about the villa and the Las Terrenas area. Villa Allegra’s owner was knowledgeable and responsive, and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. In addition, the owner’s property management company was responsive and provided excellent service.
Second, we must highlight the charm of the villa itself. Villa Allegra is a Caribbean style, with cool white walls and rich brown wood shutters and doors. Every morning, we opened up the villa’s louvered folding doors to enjoy another “day in paradise”. The view toward Playa Bonita is magnificent.
Finally, we must highlight Villa Allegra’s marvelous location. It is located on Punta Bonita, the point where two beautiful beaches, Playa Bonita and Playa Coson, meet. Here the waters are calm and crystal clear. And no crowds! On most days we were the only people on the beach, making it feel like we had our own private beach.
If you want to see more people, the very vibrant town of Las Terrenas is a short drive away, where you can enjoy a culturally diverse mix of Dominican, French, and Italian and other international residents and tourists. If you choose not to cook in the villa’s large and fully-appointed kitchen, Las Terrenas has many excellent restaurants where you can choose among a variety of delicious cuisines.
Staying at Villa Allegra, with its magnificent views, charm and character, warm and vibrant environment, large pool, and excellent management, made our vacation perfect.
