To keep it short and sweet, the house, location, and amenities were everything that we imagined and more. Having traveled to Las Terrenas before, I already had a small grasp of the area, but Monica, her husband, the security, and house-keeping & cook Yani made our stay very pleasurable.
Picture this. You wake up, to your coffee made just how you like it waiting for you (thanks to Yani.) After pouring yourself a cup, you decide to take a walk to the beach & quick dip in crystal-clear ocean, since you're about 100m away. By the time you arrive back, your favorite breakfast is made and ready on the outdoor deck, overlooking your personal pool and ocean. After breakfast, you go into town, whale-watching, maybe workout, and by the time you're done for the day, you get to go to sleep to the sound of the waves, and air-conditioning in your room.
It was an amazing experience, and I wouldn't have traded it for the world. Highly recommend this house, as having Monica's local expertise & guidance, combined with the untouched beauty and true Dominican culture is something we'll never forget.
Even Monica's awesome puppies made the experience more enjoyable!
If I HAD to pick one thing that wasn't bad, just to know, is that Monica and her husband live upstairs on a separate side of the house. You can have as little to as much interaction with them as you want. I honestly wanted more interaction, as they were very nice, but they respected our privacy.
Thanks to them and Yani for an incredible stay!
