Villa Sofia is absolutely amazing!!!!
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!
