“Quite place, outdated property”
Reviewed May 17, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Karen The owner, she is a very nice lady, loves her animals and cares for them well. The property is located in a very quiet place, and it seems to be secure . The property itself needs a lot of work , all the bedrooms and the bathrooms need to be upgraded . There are no screens on the windows so the mosquitoes are there to eat you alive . The kitchen and the dining room area are outside so there is no covering from the mosquitoes at night time so you're gathering is extremely hard at night time. The living room area cannot be used since is used by the owners cats and dogs .. The furniture needs to be replaced since they have been scratched up and used by the cats and the kitchen area needs to be completely redone. The mattresses are old and very uncomfortable. If you're looking for camping place this will be your place but for the price per night it's a little too expensive . The refrigerator also does not work well . Please be aware and do not be surprised as we were, it is hard to find a new place when you have a large group of people with you. Wi-Fi really does not exist only on the outside back porch where you can get a little bit of signal.. Were expecting something much much much cleaner and homey. Hope this gives you a better perspective than the previous three reviews which I just noticed were given by the same person the same week. Reality check .

Hello Brenda
I'm sorry that the place did not meet your expectations. Know that you came here just after a period of months of non stop rain. After this rain even we had mosquitos here as usual we have very few here up the hill. Also it is true that after this long period of rain the rooms need to be repainted (I am working on that). The kitchen is basic but so far there where no complains about this, on the contrary guests like the kitchen/terrace area a lot. The fridge works well, this I don't understand as you write that is doesn't. The comunal living room: sometimes a little dog goes in there but on my listing it sais that there are animals around and as it is most of the time nice weather here that room is almost not used by guests and cats yes they scratch on the couch, I don't mind and so far nobody did . 5 of the mattresses were purchased in 2016 so not old at all. The WI-Fi is slow in Las Galeras and here at the hostel it is the same. It depend on your device if you receive the signal also in the rooms. You could have told me and for me it would not have been a problem to put the router in the kitchen/terrace area as I have done this before.
You insinuates that the place was not clean and that is absolutely not true. It is very important to me that guests arrive in a clean place with freshly washed bed linen and towels. Also the garden is becoming extra cleaned up before a group arrives, always ! I also gave you an extra bathroom to use (without extra charge) as you arrived with more people as the 11 who where supposed to arrive (also without extra charge) what made that you payed $11 per person per night what is not expensive at all. Brenda please understand that for that price for me it is not possible to offer a 6* accommodation as the place needs to be cleaned before and after, there is always drinking water available (included in the price), Wi-Fi internet, fruits when available and the all the laundry what has to be done after a group leaves. And Brenda, as it was low season it would have been very easy to find an other place for your group in no time but of course for a lot more money. I recommend you in the futur traveling with also older people than spend more money and rent a more luxury place as my home and you will be contented and I don't have to defend my lovely, peaceful, quiet place where many guests had a great time against writings of people who made the wrong choice because of the low price.

we stayed there for about 15 days. karin was super nice and helped with contacting guides. If you want you can use the kitchen, and get food in the town nearby, but there are reasturants in the area. It is only a short walk to the beach, and if you are wiling to hike there is a cave nearby. She offers horseback rides. The tents are good quality and she sets them up ahead of time. we thought it was great! kids are welcome
