"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."

CLOSE TO PERFECTION - EXCELLENT SERVICE !

  • 5 out of 5
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 !
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

GO FOR THE HALF-BOARD OPTION : JUST DELICIOUS !

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Incredibly beautiful villa with 2 perfect beaches!

  • 5 out of 5
Seven of our family visited the DR for the first time as a graduation trip for my stepdaughter, and we feel soooo lucky to have stumbled upon Las Terrenas, Villa Sofia, and Playa Coson & Playa Bonita! Michel and Jacques were very helpful getting everything arranged and our questions answered ahead of time; and when we walked in the door it was every bit as spectacular as their pictures. We loved hanging out in the evenings in the pool, playing cards at the poolside dining table, or watching movies out there together. In the mornings Josefina and Lala would prepare us a wonderful breakfast, then we would go snorkeling at the beach or looking for seashells. The rooms are spacious, beautiful, and comfortable. The food is excellent- we never had any leftovers!! (We would shop for ourselves at the local supermarket and usually had Josefina whip something up from it.). We also had Nicolas- an excellent guide- from Flora Tours come by to show us his excursion offerings. We ended up doing the snorkeling, which was great with three absolutely amazing beaches, and the Taino Indian caves at Los Haitises National Park, which was very interesting. Our group had ages 15 up to 70, and we all agree it was an unforgettable experience and we would like to return some day! Thank you to Michel, Jacques, Josefina, Lala, Nicolas, Henry the tour guide, Willy and Jose the taxi drivers, and the friendly people of the DR for making our stay so special!

Owner's Response: Dear Susan,
Thank you for sharing your experience at Villa Sofia.
We do our maximum to help our guests having the best vacation possible, and I am delighted to see that we reached our goal !
I can't boast for the local environment, Las Terrenas and the Samana Peninsula are naturally extremely beautiful and visitors friendly.
We took great care in building Villa Sofia, and all our guests are enthusiastic, but we continuously improve and maintain our property. We also pay great attention to our guests comments about anything that can be fixed, improved or changed.
The only variable aspect is the service we provide, and I am glad to read that our internal staff (Josefina, Lala, ...), as well as our external service providers (Jacques, Michel, Nicolas, Jose,...), have all satisfied you beyond expectations !
We have recently extended our team to provide a better service, and it seems we are still in the right direction.
And we are still making efforts to improve. Always.
Thank you again for your trust and for electing Villa Sofia as your vacation destination.
All the best.

Awesome Villa

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Sofia is an awesome villa in a great location. We are a group of 10 women that took a girls vacation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Accomodations were more than comfortable even for a group this large. Everything previous raters have raved about are very true so I won't go in to repetative detail. We really enjoyed having the choice of the state of the art pool or the short walk to the ocean. The ocean swimming was ideal with calm, warm azul tropical waters with soft sand on the bottom. A majority of us went on a zip line tour and the snorkel tour which stopped at Barardi Island for lunch, drinks and light shopping. We also ordered up hour long massages for everyone that were given right at the villa. We opted to hire the "cooker" for the week and also the bartender. So I don't have any input on local restaurants, other than the one on the beach which was a very short walk. We ate there one evening and it was very good. All of our meals at the villa were delicious! We found JC, our bartender, very helpful in many areas of our stay such as mixing our afternoon blender drinks and helping out with translation and keeping our bar needs met. The staff kept the villa in immaculate, tip-top shape. We felt very safe at the villa at all times. The gated community has an armed guard which stands watch and also patrols the area all night. We went shopping downtown one day and felt very comfortable and safe there as well. The locals were extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone had way too much fun and all of us brought back unforgetable lifetime memories at Villa Sofia.

Villa Sofia was the perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 out of 5
We just got back from our vacation at Villa Sofia. We had six adults and four children staying at the house and we had more than enough space. The house itself was exactly as the pictures show it. It did not disappoint. However, the best part of the house was Josefina. She made the vacation completely relaxing and is an amazing chef. After going out to dinner a few times to some very well reviewed restaurants, we determined that Josefina's cooking was better than any food we could get anywhere else. She took very good care of all of us, and was a pleasure to be around.

The pools at the house were also perfect. The upper pool is deeper than the lower pool, so the older kids had fun jumping in the water. The lower pool has large ledges which were perfect for the two year old to play on. The set up could not have been any better. The house is also surrounded by vegetation, so it's very private.

The beach was only about a one minute walk from the house and is one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. The water was very warm and crystal clear. It was great for long walks, boogie boarding and swimming. There was quite a bit of sea life around the coral, so it was even good for snorkeling.

We had a wonderful vacation, and look forward to coming back again.

Villa Sofia is absolutely amazing!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Sofia is a wonderful property! Online pictures often look better than the real thing, but that is not the case with Villa Sofia; the house is even better in person than the online pictures. Every room is decorated to perfection with its own unique features. The main living spaces are comfortable and relaxing. The pools are perfect for lazing or swimming laps. The house is well equipped, as described on the website.

I can’t say enough for the staff of Villa Sofia! Josephina and Lala made our stay exceptional. They were helpful and kind. The house was always kept clean and is very well maintained. We had Josephina grocery shop and cook us breakfast daily. We also had Luis and Josephina cook us dinner four nights of our stay and it was fabulous! Michel, who is extremely pleasant, informative, helpful and responsive, did an exceptional job organizing our stay at the house. His website is very helpful in planning a trip to the area. We were delighted to meet the owner Patrick, who was also wonderful to work with. He put a lot of thought into the design, layout and comfort of guests when he built and furnished this home.

In our opinion, Villa Sofia sits in the best location of Las Terrenas for a relaxing vacation. It is in a quaint neighborhood within walking distance to some boutique like hotels and restaurants that run along Playa Bonita. It is wonderful having the option to eat in or out. When you walk to the beach you can pick Playa Bonita or Playa Coson.
I would recommend making plans to see the area; it’s a fascinating place to see and the people of Las Terrenas are so nice and welcoming. For activities we went horseback riding to El Limon, whale watching on the coast of Samana, had dinner in downtown Las Terrenas, and had massages at the house.

A few tidbits of information I was looking for in reviews before booking: While there is amazing snorkeling in the area, there is not any worthwhile snorkeling in walking distance of the house that we could find. The drinking water at the house was perfect – no need to worry there! We all felt completely safe, everywhere we went, our whole trip.

Everything about Villa Sofia was perfect for our group of 9 celebrating our 40th birthdays. I would highly recommend this rental property to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing vacation!
