This is a great rental for the price. It is only a 5 minute walk from the wonderful sandy beaches and 10 minutes from town. It was clean and comfortable. The caretakers met us even though it was late at night. They were nice and helpful.
Some details and caveats:
ad says TV and dvd player. It has those, but no antenna, cable or dish. So technically it has a TV, but you can only use it to watch dvd's.
It has air-conditioning, but only in two of the bedrooms, not central. You also pay extra for electrical usage "above the average rate of 40 kwh per week". So if you actually use the AC, you may pay extra. All rooms and outdoor terrace have ceiling fans which worked fine for us (stayed in March).
The pool is there, but no concrete patio around pool, and only 2 lounge chairs there (one was broken). We ended up spending all our free time at the beach (which was beautiful) and no time at the pool.
Some ants were in the kitchen - keep the counters and other areas clean and free from any food items. Bring earplugs for sleeping - lots of barking dogs in the area.
We were overall satisfied with the unit for the price. Be prepare to have $500 cash for the damage deposit which is returned at the end of your stay.
Las Terranes is beautiful and generally not "americanized" - no american brands (such as McDonalds or Starbucks). People are friendly and helpful. It was refreshing staying someplace where little English is spoken and the local food isn't dumbed down. Lots of French and Italian in the area. Local restaurants were great. Beaches were beautiful and lots of opportunity to do different activities such as whale watching, etc.
Caretakers were nice and accommodating and helpful. Relatively quiet area off the main drag (where lots of 4-wheelers and motorcycles go constantly all day and night).
Overall would stay there again. Is secure with gates and a guard at night. Units are new and spacious. Owner was also helpful and arranged transport for us from airport. Loved the country.
