Guestbook comments from the owner

Email received on February 8th, 2013.

"Hello dear Patrick,

we were trying to put our guest review on your site already but i guess we did something wrong, because it is not there. This is our review and we are asking if you could put it on your site. Thank you very much.

And have a nice day.

We were staying on vacation in villa Sofia for 3 weeks, for the new year. We had a wonderful time. We are very grateful to mr. Patrick who made all our wishes come true. We are else very grateful for our lady Josefine who took care of us while we were staying there.

We were already in Dominican Republic - Punta Cana but this time we decided to visit Las Terenas and we were very happy about our choice. Villa that we were staying in was brand new, modern, full of nice colors, and placed in nice environment and everything was near, we had 2 minutes to beautiful beach and 3 minutes of driving with four wheels to town.

We are looking forward to come back again. Saso, Elena, Mark, Helena."

It exceeded my expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

i Just have to start by saying how beautiful this villa and location is. As soon as my family and i arrived i fell in love with the place. There where 5 of us staying at the villa and we had so much room. My wife and i had the master suite which was a great size.My brother loved the underwater suite.I was worried about Mozzies and how safe we where,but that was no problem at all. The pool area is to die for.We had the music on and just chilled around the pool in the daytime and in the evening we all gathered at the sitting area and relaxed and waited for our very tasty meal prepared by the chef (which i recommend).The beach is a stones throw away and if you turn to the left at the end of the path you will probably not see a better beach in your life! we used to walk to the end of the cove and relax on the sand. We rented ATV's for 3 day's that Elodie kindly organized for us. The staff in the house where very lovely and made sure everything was clean for us and made sure we where happy.We where there for 9 days and it was not long enough.Please take my word for it as we have travelled to some of the nicest properties in the world and this is up there with it.Look no further, as this villa and all the people involved will not disappoint you! Booking next trip back already..

Words can not explain how this property looks in person!!! I was so nervous about renting the property because it was so far away from Michigan. The homeowner Patrick assured me that we would love it!!! The pictures are exact what you see if not better. The 2 housekeepers were great and the breakfast was delicious! Security was amazing we felt safe and protected. We had an issue with the refrigerator but they resolved it quickly. I absolutely would suggest this beautiful villa because me and my girlfriends enjoyed it!! WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!!!!!!!

Had a BLAST!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous. Our group enjoyed every aspect of the property, especially the pool. The staff was great and very attentive to us during our stay. We enjoyed the beach, just a 5 minute walk, and the bars and restaurants along the coast line. Patrick leaves no question unanswered and makes sure that every detail is in order before arrival. If you are considering this property, make sure that you bring candles for the mosquitos; not a fault of the property, but they were aggressive. Had a fabulous time and would definitely stay here again.

A Jewel near the the ocean

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter the glass doors this property is beautiful. The modern decor offers special adornments around each corner. The bedrooms are large each with their own restroom and AC units. There are multiple sitting areas up and down to take advantage of. There is a very short walk to the beach where several restaurants are located. This a great area for snorkeling as the reef is close to the beach edge. While there were vacationers it was not over bearing like at resorts. The best jewel about Villa Sofia was Josephina and the staff. They attended our every need starting with a fabulous breakfast and fresh ground coffee every morning. The half board dinner with Dario in the evening is a must. The fresh squeezed juice, local fruit and fish were to die for. He served an appetizer, first plate, main dish, and desert every evening that were so beautiful you had to snap a picture before you eat. Do not rent a car unless you know the area due to the chaotic driving there. AIC took care of all of our travel and excursion needs. Lastly, while this house and staff does set the bar pretty high you must bring repellent for some evenings sitting out. It is an open house with no way to close the main sitting area off. It is an exceptional property at a great value that can be enjoyed by both the young and mature. Happy Travels.....

We spent a lovely week at Villa Sofia and really enjoyed the property : beautiful decoration, an amazing bedroom opening directly inside the swimming pool, a pool firewall, a giant bar, ...... The terrace surrounded by the giant pool is priceless and every evening we had the great pleasure of dining in front of the lighted pool and its magic wall of fire !!! Villa Sofia is almost on the beach (1mn), and a few minutes walk from the beach bars and restaurants. The house itself is open, spacious and has all the amenities you'd expect in a vacation home. We were able to cook meals and BBQ in the garden and spend time relaxing around the 3 swimming pools, all the while not paying hotel prices for food and drink. It was everything we anticipated and more. We would definitely recommend Villa Sofia to future visitors to Las Terrenas, especially if you want the privacy and relaxed atmosphere a rental home can provide. And the service of Josefina and Lala is absolutely perfect, with delicious breakfast served everyday, and fresh fruit juice prepared when we were coming back from the beach... Simply paradise !

We are just coming back from a weeklong stay at Villa Sofia in the Dominican Republic, and I can’t wait writing a review to share the truly memorable experience we had.

Of course, Villa Sofia is an EXCEPTIONAL property, even more beautiful in reality than the already sumptuous pictures they present on their website. Other reviewers already wrote that it is perfect in every aspect; this is just true. I can just add that we LOVED the UNDERWATER Suite, as well as the JACUZZI Suite ! Simply the best !

The service by Josefina and Lala is so nice and efficient that we wanted to bring them back with us ! All other services (welcome by agency, excursions, car renter, etc…) were of the same kind.

But the masterpiece was the new dinner option (we have been told we were the first – lucky ! – clients to experience this new formula) : we chose to book the half-board option for our whole stay, which consists in a full inclusive dinner served home, prepared by Villa Sofia’s fantastic Chef, Rosy, a brilliant and professional cook. We had first hesitated considering the price of this option, but we luckily opted for it : for the price of a mid-category restaurant, we had the pleasure to dine every day in front of the fabulous Villa Sofia swimming pool and its wall of fire, and taste a cuisine that very few restaurants offer in Las Terrenas ! Simply exceptional !

One day we decided to go out and dine at the Fishermen Village; we just had to notify Josefina the day before, and we exchanged our dinner of that day against the lunch, just as refined as the dinner we had before. We had dinner in a pretty good restaurant there, but for a much higher price, and without the touch of Rosy’s cuisine; and we missed Villa Sofia’s fantastic environment….!!!

Thank you Patrick and Nicole for your warm welcome and for having created this unique place. Thank you to all for those unforgettable vacations.

We will be back !

Jane, Mario and family.
