About Eunice and Alma

For years we always would visit family and travel around Santo Domingo. However, approximately 5 years ago we planned a trip to Santo Domingo and decided to explore out and visit Las Terrenas. We fell utterly in love with the town! So much so that we decided to by this beautiful, well located villa.

Why Eunice and Alma chose La Iglesia

There is so much to do in Las Terrenas. This villa is within walking distance to the beach, fishermen's market, and center of town. You can explore out or just stay in and enjoy sitting by the pool with your family.

We hope you love Las Terrenas as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am hotelier and do not do all inclusive resorts to go on holidays, this time I went with my family and it was fantastic, the place is very comfortable, anything you might need is there, the kitchen is fully equipped, radio and TV are also a plus.

Juana the cleaning lady is fantastic, Jordan pool and garden and teh security staff are the best.

We brought our groceries and cooked every night, BBQ is a great idea.

Perfect getaway if you want to have a private place.

Beautiful, peaceful and fun!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed February 19-24 with 7 adults and 2 kids. The Villa is clean, well appointed, secure and a short walk to the beach, town, supermarket and restaurants. Everything we needed was at hand. Alma was wonderful and was willing to answer all of our questions and make recommendations as needed. We did excursions to El Limon, Playa Rincon and Whale watching with Santi, who was recommended by Alma. Do not miss these excursions, they were wonderful and the highlight of our trip! We did go to the closest beach twice with the kids (ages 6 and 10) and they were perfectly content, although I can see that at times, the surf is rough there. We did not have any need to rent an ATV, but if we had stayed a day or two longer, I would recommend it to explore the other beaches that are nearby, but a long walk away. Do be cautious about electricity use, though! We were very conscientious of this and only one couple used air conditioning in their bedroom at night only and we still owed $50 US at the end of the stay which had to be paid in dollars or pesos before leaving. The pool pump seems to run a lot and I think that contributes to it, but just a warning so you don't have an unpleasant surprise. With 9 people in the house, we expected we would go over the allotment, so we were not surprised and actually happy it was as low as it was. Overall, I highly recommend this villa and can't wait to return! Alma and Eunice were very attentive and responsive leading up to and during the trip. Niña, the cleaning lady was also wonderful. We couldn't have asked for more!

The place to truly rest

  • 5 of 5

Overall great experience. Alma the host is very responsive and attentive and the house is in good condition. We had a maid coming everyday (included in the house fee) and she was awesome as well.

It is located in a very quiet street and neighborhood, walking distance to the beach (FYI, the beach close to the house isn't kids friendly) restaurants and other shopping areas.

We rented a four wheeler to go around town (it is safe to do so as everyone is on scooters). Highly recommend visit other locations if you are in for an adventure, otherwise staying in the house is the closest to the perfect vacation.

Few things to note of you are visiting:

* WiFi isn't great so don't plan on working on your stay, better grabbit a drink and sit by the pool.

* The supermarket is within walking distance, people around town will tell you is far but not even 30 min by foot.

* Hiring a chef/cook is a plus.

* Not a beachfront house but 5 min walk.

Other than that be ready to truly disconnect from your routine and have a peaceful vacation.

Amazing House, Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed a few houses in Las Terrenas and so far this one has been the best. Spacious, open-air house, high ceilings and plenty of room for a group of friends - you won't feel crowded. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable (they do provide soap but you might want to bring shampoo). The pool and grounds were beautiful, well kept and offer an abundance of privacy - a perfect place to relax and enjoy a few drinks. Alma, the property manager, was responsive and extremely helpful and the night guard was quiet and discreet. The location could not be much better - basically everything is within walking distance - stores, restaurants, beach etc. Overall an outstanding experience - I will be going back.

Very nice house, close to the beach, the pool is a must !!!

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice of pictures and as nice where you are there !

It was very clean and the house keeping is the best.

Alma was so helpful, for the house and for everything to do around Las Terrenas.

We liked visiting the most beautiful beaches you can see in your life, no kidding :: Coson (eat at Luis, you won't regret it) , Playa Bonita and even more.

The horse back riding to go to El Limon is a good plan and also the Mangroves national park !!!

Good restaurants :: Casa Azul, El Lugar for sure.

We really appreciated negociating with the local fisherman in the village at 10 am.

You can get local fish and seafood fresh and at the good price.

I definitely recommend Villa Toali for your vacation !!!

Enjoy :)

Owner's Response: Hello Melanie, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are glad that you enjoyed Villa Toali and Las Terrenas. We actually never had a chance to go to Luis and this past July we finally were able to go. I totally agree. The food is fabulous. :) Thank you again. Eunice

Beautiful Villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent our final week of a three week vacation at Villa Toali. The Villa is in a great location , close to several excellent dining locations , walking distance to the grocery store and all the local beach and pubs. The Villa itself was outstanding, it was clean and very private and very safe( it comes with an armed security guard). After having been married the week prior it was a great place to unwind and chill out. The pool was immaculate and it was cleaned daily as was the Villa. Alma and Eunice were both very helpful and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a reply when we contacted them. We would not hesitate to return to Villa Toali in the future.

well managed and beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa under the previous owner and were the second renters under Alma, the new owner and manager. The villa is beautiful, and with the wonderful staff support, fits the need of private space and easy holiday living. We used chef Daniel for a number of three course dinners, all spectacular and provided in the comfort of our patio. The villa includes three hours housekeeping per day as well regular pool and lawn service. Alma is a professional property manager and was extremely helpful in her resources for excursions and local needs. My strong recommendation is to use her transport from Santo Domingo. We rented two cars and wished we had taken the easy choice of a ride. The property needs a few minor repairs and Alma had those well in hand.

There are a few niggles that are just based on life in the Dominican Republic. The power cuts occasionally and internet connectivity comes and go as bandwidth is available. The villa sits on a small unpaved road, about a 5 minute walk to the beach.

We would recommend the excursion to El Limon and quads on the coffee route. Alma's husband also runs deep sea fishing if that is of interest.

Las Terrenas is a wonderful place where you really understand what pleasant days mean!

It is located on the North coast of Dominican Republic, between green hills and blue ocean. Enjoying outdoor activities, you will feel as an adventurer ,and you will discover by yourself the famous kindness of the Dominican people.

In addition to outdoor activities, the village offers a great diversity of spas, restaurants (some with the french touch), bars and discos ... All amenities needed are available, as banks, ATM, bakeries, several shops, mini-markets and supermarkets, etc.

Discover and enjoy!
