About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This is a beautiful and recently renovated apartment just in front of the beach where the sound of the water is always present.

My apartment has excellent distribution and spacious rooms that’s perfect for a group or family of 6 people. It has excellent lighting and floor to ceiling glass doors in each room and living room. You also have an excellent view of the beach from inside the apartment.

I am inside small gated community with 24 hour security personal, and the best restaurant in all Las Terrenas is on premises.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing place! We were greeted by Emil and made to feel so welcome. Emil's condo really felt like home. Modern and beautiful we basically had a pool and a beach to ourselves for a week!

Our vacation changed once the families who own the other condos arrived and suddenly our kids, 9 and 7, were playing late night soccer and participating in beachside camp fires and were even invited to a birthday party. We felt like part of the community!

The beach is amazing - we loved the lack of motor boats and jet skis. The Ocean Grill restaurant is delicious and the (email hidden) are first rate and the lattes are unreal!!!

The staff go out of their way to accommodate. I would say, some knowledge of Spanish is very helpful and definitely bring bug spray!! We enjoyed going into Las Terrenas for meals and going on tours with Flora Tours who were recommended by Emil.

We tried surf lessons on near by Playa Bonita and then honed our new skills on the beach near the condo.

We are grateful to Emil for answering our many emails and questions. He was so patient and made sure we had everything we needed.

My parents, my husband and my kids and I are sad to have left our home on the beach .. Thanks to Emil for sharing his beautiful space with us.

Unfortunately due to flooding, thing didn't work

Out as expected. I had reached out to owner days before of stay to inquire about the flooding . We were told that it had not impacted the resort or house rental. This was not the case- the flood impacted the pool which we were not able to use until end of 2nd day; after long travel all restaurants were closed (thank God for Minerva) the housekeeper that went to buy groceries late in day and made dinner. I communicated this to owner and stated what he was"told" it had not been impacted -and I had to send him pictures of everything. On the 2nd day the flood caused damage where the resort did not have any water in the morning. This included not being able to flush toilets.Management was very apologetic and provided us water to cook and use bathroom. We couldn't eat on one side of the restaurant because the roof had been damaged and had to be repaired from flood- which meant literally taking it down -again sent pics to owner. Management personally came to apologize for noise and explained - All English channels were being blocked because of "payment " and told owner. He did respond and said it was "taken care of "but it never did. At this point we had 2 days left and I did not follow- up. The resort and beach was on Alert yellow and we were not told even thought I had reached out. Had to reiterate with owner by sending pictures. We understand that the weather can't be controlled but when it impacts the amenities you are paying for such as pool, access to ocean , restaurant, water and cable access consideration should be made on price. I thank God for Minerva being so attentive and positive throughout and excellent cook - and offering whatever help she could provide . Also the manager was very apologetic throughout the stay. As far as the apartment kitchen was ok but bathroom and bedrooms needed updates and maintenance with doors and cosmetic work-It's quiet area nothing to do without having to leave resort - definitely need a car. The food as restaurant was good and some prices were reasonable - service at restaurant ( after it opened) was good - Patricia November 2016

Owner's Response: Dear Future Guest, I would like to Address that this two star review is not very accurate, and as a host I try to be perfect all the time. In this case things were out of my grasp because of weather conditions that had recently passed. I would like to assure everyone that the experience lived by all my guest has been excellent. Reviews read: "Oaisis in Las Terrenas" "Heaven" "This is Paradise" "Lovely and peaceful" Etc. I have had guest return 3 and even 4 times to my property. My house keeper Minerva is also an excellent host, and always with a very friendly and positive attitude. Her cooking is also amazing. I tried to be the best host possible, I remained in contact throughout her stay and quickly responded to every question & inquiry. I am very sorry that I was not able to live up to my guest expectations, I will try harder with future guest. I can't pass the opportunity to responded on the negative points left in this review, as I feel it's necessary to put my point of view. First, I did mention to my guest that the area was affected by the rain that had just passed. I can quote our WhatsApp conversation below. Guest Question: “has the flood impacted the area ?” Host Response: “There has been rain and some flooding in the area, but not anything major, Puerto Plata and cities towards the north west coast had more problems with the water..” POOL: It’s true that the day my guest arrived (around 3:30pm) the pool was affected by the rain and was not usable, but exactly 24 hours later the pool was in perfect condition and remained that way till the end of her stay. CABLE TV: Guest mentioned I had not paid my cable bill, this is also not accurate. Let me explain how cable works in Las Terrenas. Cable is included in the monthly fee I pay the administration, I have no contract with any cable company directly. This area of the Samana peninsula is not an attractive business for the big cable operates, the only service is done by local companies that re-transmit Direct TV or DISH network programming. You can imagine this is not very reliable and also not 100% kosher, so many times you get messages on your TV saying things like , "Warning service is about to end". This is part of the negatives of being in an area not affected by large hotels and crowds. Just Recently, TRICOM purchased one of these local cable operates and soon we will have a more reliable cable company providing service in the area.

Excelente lugar para pasar uno días de descanso. Apartamento confortable , bién mantenido y ubicado, y contar con Minerva la asistenta, persona muy bién dispuesta para colaborar en todo , hace de la estadía, un verdadero placer.

La playa es maravillosa, amplísima y muy tranquila por lo menos en esta época del año, y en general todas las instalaciones del complejo son muy buenas y están bién mantenidas.

Realmente es un lugar que vale la pena repetir.

A Emil le sugiero que compre una cafetera eléctrica moderna ya que la que tiene en el apartamento es una greca muy pequeña e incómoda.

We were fortunate to stay almost two months at this wonderful place. The apartment and property was as shown on the web .It was very spacious , clean and confortabile. Minera ,the daily maid, as well as the property staff were very friendly and accommodating . The food at the resturant was excellent . The location of the apartment was perfect , the view was great and a very short walk to the beach.The beach was great as there were places to be in the shade as well as sun and still enjoy the beautiful ocean. We plan to return next year and can't wait. We strongly recommend this property.

This was the second time that we spent our holidays at Cosón beach and it was again absolutely fantastic. We know quite a lot of beaches in the Dominican Republic and this is still our favourite. The apartment is wonderful, fully equipped, clean and spacious, with an exclusive view to palm trees and the sea. Emil and his family were perfect hosts, always friendly and helpful. The condominium has a restaurant, two swimming pools (one for toddlers) and many other facilities. The whole place is just perfect, also for families. There is a place nearby where you can rent surfboards and other equipment. Our kids (11 and 16 years) had a splendid time. Thank you so much, Emil, for this wonderful vacation in your apartment!
