“Just paradise!!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The house is just wonderful. The view, the terrace, the pool are awesome!
The house is really big and very nicely decorated. Rooms are big and comfortable. Everything is clean : the cleaning lady comes everyday and takes care of everything. The gardens and tennis court are very nice and safe. Kids can play alone on the playground. The Villa Taniera are close to all the beaches. With or without waves. You can surf, kite surf, snorkle. There are some very nice restaurants and bars around. The team at the Villas are extremely nice. They help you book any activities, sports, massage, trecks...and can give any advices. Really paradise. We have already booked for next year!!

“Paradise!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a great weeklong stay in one of Frederick's lovely villas. The villas are spacious, clean and inviting, the pool was fantastic, and the nearby town had everything we needed. A perfect spot for traveling with young kids.

“Delightful house and pool in the midst of jungle”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Frederick designed and built the houses on the property with great attention to detail. For example, rocks dug from the site were lovingly fashioned into sturdy grey walls with splashes of orangey rock. The photos don't exaggerate the loveliness of the houses. The pool was a lifesaver as the weather was quite hot and humid the week we were there. Easy to rent an ATV 4-wheeler and drive to town for supplies. (Don't try to shop during siesta!)

“Fabulous views!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The property was great, we really enjoyed our stay. The villa is located on top of the hill outside the main village. It's very quite but you do need a jeep (or a quad) to access it. Taxi are also available at extortionate rates. The villa is located 5 mins away driving from the beach where you can find delicious food and cocktails. Scuba diving center and kite surfing instructors are available at the beach.
The villa is on three floors with the master bedroom on top. A second bedroom is on the ground floor while the other two bedrooms are on the floor below. Nice views from all bedrooms but the main feature is the infinity pool located at the front of the villa.
The owner, his wife and the manager are very helpful to make your stay pleasant. Our laggages were carried up to the room (there's a steep stair to access the property) which was much appreciated. The villa was cleaned daily and we had a person preparing breakfast for us.
In terms of catches, Internet could only be connected after 2 days which has created some problems. The villa is in the middle of a beautiful natural environment so it's natural that animals were around, the problem is that little frogs, geckos, spiders were found everywhere in the villa. Thankfully they are scared of humans and tend to disappear quickly.
We could not pay the deposit via paypal and that has created some logistical problem as it's not easy to withdraw money at the village and the deposit was quite large.
Leaving the above aside, it's been a magnificent experience...highly recommended!

Enrico,
Thanks for your review, and to be very fair with us, it helps me changing little things as you know it is really difficult to get perfection in DR...

Sorry for the internet, i have been doing my best, but the problem came from the provider, and again DR is not US.
As you know the only villa available for you, was the one with some little stairs, even if the team is always helping you, you know that the higher you are, the better will be the sea view (excellent for watching the whales).
It is important to say that even if you find some littles animals inside the villa, it doesn t mean that the villa is not clean but only that we are in the middle of a beautifull tropical garden with lots of flowers, and the best is that none of the little animals are dangerous, and the kids love it.
Regarding the deposit, i am still looking for a solution with flipkey and tripadvisor but having bank accounts in Dominican Republic makes problems for the system, we will find a solution shortly.
Welcome back
Fred
