About Jean-Francois Laurent

We are both French and discovered Las Terrenas in 2006 while looking for a place to organize our wedding (we were both working in Haiti at that time). We were immediately charmed by the beauty of this village and bought this house in 2008. We now live in Santo Domingo with two beautiful children both born in Dominican Republic. We regularly spend our weekends in Las Terrenas where we have great friends.

Jean-Francois Laurent purchased this villa in 2008

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with the house for three simple reasons:

1- It is centraly located in Las Terrenas. Therefore we can do everything by foot (grocery, beach, restaurant, bars (when we did not have kids ;), etc...)

2- The layout and the design of the house is open and family friendly

3- It is located in Las Terrenas, the only place in DR where you will find a Carribean-European way of life.

Elegant and comfortable indoor / outdoor living

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay in this beautiful home in Las Terrenas.... we felt at home right away. Love that we could walk to town and the beach (although we chose to drive to a secluded spot on Playa Las Bellenas). Right around the corner is a French bakery. My boys (ages 9 and 6) got good use of the pool. I love the architecture of the house and how the inside and outside worlds cohabitate so well together ... would bring a few more cooking things for the kitchen and a coffee maker (although a French press was provided). Would heartily recommend this property to a friend!

La casa está en buen estado. El trato fue bueno pero tiene detalles por mejorar.

  • 4 of 5

La dotación en general está bien, pero por ejemplo la iluminación de la casa es escasa, la entrada en el jardin estuvo siempre con barro , sería bueno colocar un pasillo o alguna madera para no mojarse los pies. La presion del agua en la ducha no es tan buena, y el agua caliente a veces falla. La El lavadero estaba roto. Sin embargo, está muy bien dotada, los implementos de cocina son completos, la piscina en buen estado y el servicio de limpieza funciona muy bien. El trato fue muy amable y resolvió el problema del tv rápido.
