Peaceful & Relaxing

Excellent location for a peaceful and relaxing stay. The amenities were exactly as we expected, clean and convenient. The beach was great and just few steps away. Several restaurants and deliveries, using "Komida" app (suggested by the property manager) provided good opportunity not to cook and eat different meals every day. Overall, great experience. Exactly what we needed :) Thank you!!!!

Mike's apartment was simply perfect for my family for a long stay vacation! The location was the key to success. A heavenly beach just a few steps away in a beautifully maintained complex and walking distance to many restaurants was just what we needed. The apartment had all the amenities you could wish for. It was very clean, well maintained and simply comfortable. Thank you for renting to us!!! :-)

Excited and Perfect

We just arrived this morning and I was excited to write this review. This penthouse was perfect. Beautiful view of the beach. The room on the top was the best. Falling asleep with the sounds of the waves was just amazing. The location is perfect. Short walk to beach and the pool. At the beach they have locals that could bring lunch, coconuts or drinks. The boardwalk was quaint. The food was great. Samuel met us when we got there. We went to the Villa and went through the check in. He provided us with a map, and guide of the things to do locally. We were welcomed with fresh fruit, beer, water , OJ and coffee. We ate at Hotel Atlantico for dinner. We ate somewhere else of the boardwalk but forgot the name. So delicious. We hang out at El Mosquito bar after which was so much fun. We had a car and we did travel to the town. We went food shopping Supermercado Pola. It had everything we needed. We went to downtown Las Terrenas. IT was amazing. We ate at Las Olas. The owner was friendly. The waiter Alan was so friendly, attentive, and fun. If you want a real local experience go to Luis! It's a restaurant on the beach managed by locals. We will definitely return to the Las Terrenas!

We had a lovely two week stay at Michael's penthouse condo on Playa Bonita. The beach is beautiful and very child-friendly. There are several restaurants to choose from within walking distance, and two surf schools that rent boards and offer lessons for both children and adults. It's a short drive into Las Terrenas for grocery shopping and more great restaurants and beaches. The rooftop terrace at Mike's penthouse was a great place to relax after a long day out in the sun. We enjoyed our stay and we hope to return to the area again in the future.

Absolutely amazing apartment with excellent amenities. Steps throwaway to the beach, which was stunning! Location is great too. Couple of cool restaurants alongside the beach and a short drive to Las Terrenas for more nightlife or grocery shops. Our stay definitely exceeded our expectations!

This apartment and location in DR are fabulous. The apartment is immaculate, well maintained and well appointed (and you can tell loved). The grounds are clean, well manicured and well staffed. It was a short walk to many good restaurants for each meal and there weren't throngs of tourists. The beaches here are clean and crystal blue. Surfing is also great for beginners to intermediate depending on the conditions. We really enjoyed our stay in this great penthouse apartment!

“Wow, we had a great time and the condo was ideal for us. Vanessa and Robert were perfect at getting us acquainted and giving sound advice. We arrived very late but they had a great Dominican dish waiting for us and we got some basic groceries to get started. Vanessa also offered pizza on our first night but we wanted more of an island flavor. We do suggest you visit Casa Azul for pizza if you want any. It was very good. The only issue we had in the condo was controlling the hot water in the showers. It would come and go, so you need to be flexible about this. We visited the waterfalls and we suggest you do the tour as well. Skip the horseback ride, you don't need it and you will feel sorry for the horses. Negotiate the price with some passion. They are starting pretty high on their initial price. I don't think you really need a guide but they are adamant that you take one. We loved the condo location because it wasn't on the busiest street of Las Terrenas. If you want clubs and bars that are open late and plenty of traffic then you need something on the main drag. We liked the quiet at night and yet we had options for bars and restaurants on the beach just not 25 options. We always felt safe and the apartment is well supplied. In our group, 2 couples used the air conditioning on 2 nights but we never did. There is a wonderful breeze, ceiling fans and the crashing waves to give you a relaxing sleep. Enjoy.”

This place is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The staff are so accommodating and helpful! This was the perfect getaway; steps away from the beach, restaurants and so close to town! Thank you!!

Immediately upon arrival, it felt like home. You’ll enjoy an authentic Dominican experience with all the amenities of home and much more. The beach is breathtakingly beautiful and many enjoy searching for seashells and surfing right from the shore. Any of your needs will be met by the property managers Arnaud and Vanessa including but not limited to grocery shopping, renting transportation for the week, booking excursions or arranging transportation to/from the airport. My husband and I enjoyed this vacation more than our honeymoon at Sandals in St. Lucia. This was a once in a lifetime vacation we will not soon forget!

must be experienced

This penthouse is incredible! And is very clean. Three beautiful bedrooms, four luxury bathrooms, a spacious and inviting living area, bar, spectacular kitchen, and so much more. Not to mention the terraces. You are also right on the ocean, just steps from this beautiful and luxurious beach. The sand is so soft it literally feels as though it's melting under your feet! Walk the boardwalk to many restaurants and bars. Downtown is just a couple of minutes away for you to experience and enjoy the beautiful people of this island and their culture. The smells of the island, the sunshine, and the salt water will overtake your senses- relaxing your mind and soul. My husband and I have found a new adventurous love in eachother thanks to this piece of paradise. This place must be experienced by all.

Wonderful Vacation

We felt very welcome both by the host and the person in charge of the property. Everything and more were up to expectations and we had a wonderful vacation at Playa Bonita and Las Terrenas.
