Mike S. from Russia
We stayed in Casa Inca from 7 to 17 November 2013.
When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that villa is much better in real than in the photos. Villa is very comfortable and cozy. The villa is located in a cottage village on the Las Ballenas beach. After we spent several days there and drove around nearby beaches, we came to conclusion that Las Ballenas beach is the most beautiful, clean, calm and crowd-free. Every morning it is cleaned and swept. The seas is pure and crystal clear, but waves and sand can make water a bit murky. There is a road along the beach and to go to the beach you need to go out of the gate and cross this road. But I can tell that traffic is low and it absolutely doesn't disturb the rest. If you have plans to eat in restaurants-one of the more nearest restaurants is located in a 15-20 minutes walk. And, in my opinion, if you plan to cook food in villa, you must rent a car (or any vehicle) as the closest decent grocery store is located in a 10-15 minutes drive in Las Terrenas town. Villa furnishing: There are 3 rooms in the villa (as you can see in the photos). One of them with an exit to swimming-pool has a "king size" bed and is big, light and very comfortable. There is a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and two wash basins in it. There are also two other rooms which are smaller. There is a hall with a separate shower and toilet in it. There is nothing to complain about, everything works well. There is a hairdryer; towels are changed every other day. Beach towels are also there. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is everything necessary to cook: plates, pans, forks and knifes - enough of all. We were very happy to use BBQ. The swimming-pool and garden are excellent! The territory around the villa is very green and lush. There are beautiful bushes and palm trees which hide the villa from the strangers ‘looks. In real life the swimming-pool is much bigger than in the photos. The water is chlorinated. Every day at about 10-10.30 a.m. a very nice, undisturbing (??????-?? ??? ????? ??? ?? ????????? ????????) cleaning lady comes to clean the villa. Every day, as it got dark, security-guard came. I`ve read in reviews that there are many bloodsucking insects. Yes, it`s true, but mosquito-killer helps. This is not our first trip and not the first villa we rented for our family. I assure you, you won`t regret if you choose Casa Inca.

Owner's Response: Since the stay of Mike, we have made considerable improvements in the house. We have changed the kitchen and build a new modern italian style kitchen. We have also built a new room on the first floor, with a bathroom ensuite. This room, with a king size bed, has a wonderful panoramic terrace of 50 square meters with view on the sea. So now the house has 4 rooms and can receive up to 10 people.
Concerning the road in front of the villa, its a paved road (originally it was a sand road) which comes from the village. The road is a dead end 300 meters after the villa so there is nearly no traffic. It has also made access to the village and restaurants much easier and faster !
