Property description

With soaring ceilings, open, light-filled space AND your own private swimming pool (no tan lines! :), the new Sky Terrace is a luxury retreat at a bargain price!
Walk just 300 yards to the best beach in Las Terrenas. Unlike other properties at Playas Bonita or Coson, no car is needed as it is a safe, 5 minute walk along the beach road to the international restaurants and shops in town.
Completed in 2012 as the owners’ private retreat, the contemporary, second-story Sky Terrace was built to take advantage of the cool breezes and stunning views across protected grasslands to the palm tree-covered hills. Prepare your meals in the large, equipped kitchen and relax on the screened porch and balcony.
The Sky Terrace is beautifully decorated in teal-blue and green with glass brick windows, designer bathroom fixtures, and gleaming tile floors.
The balcony offers ever-changing vistas and unforgettable sunsets. A truly romantic place for an unforgettable honeymoon or special anniversary.


Congratulations on discovering the BEST vacation property in Las Terrenas! The owners love to read, so they designed the new apartment with over a dozen different locations to relax with a good book!
The spacious bedroom has large closets and the living room boasts the “most comfortable chair in the world!” plus a twin-size cushioned sofa. The dining table near the fully-equipped kitchen can be easily moved to the screened porch or onto the balcony for 'al fresco' dining.
WIFI allows total Internet access.
The balcony’s cushioned loungers are perfect for private sun-bathing AND night-time star-gazing. The green hills, studded with pastel-colored villas, are reminiscent of Italian hill-towns and watching the villa lights blink on at night is truly magical.
Ceiling fans in the living/dining area, bedroom and back porch catch the breezes from the numerous screened windows and keep the Sky Terrace comfortably cool.
The Sky Terrace is available to rent separately or together with the neighboring Casa Pura Vida which has a totally private swimming pool (see HomeAway listing 202857).

You simply won’t find a more tranquil, private and peaceful setting that is just steps from the beach and the excitement of Las Terrenas.
PS: Ask Susan for her recommendations on the best ways to travel from the airport to Las Terrenas-- she's always happy to help!

The Sky Terrace is located in a QUIET neighborhood next door to Casa Pura Vida --the owners' first property- which was featured on an episode of the American TV show, House Hunters Internation (HGTV). See HomeAway listing 202857. Based on availability, the Sky Terrace can be rented together with Casa Pura Vida-- ideal for large get-togethers!

When you make a reservation at The Sky Terrace you will receive detailed information on how to travel from SDQ, (or other arrival cities) PLUS you will receive a comprehensive Rental Guide with suggestions for restaurants, nightclubs, where to go, best beaches,etc. Plus: our manager can help you rent a 'quad,' arrange snorkeling, diving or fishing expeditions, and tell you where to find the hottest 'nightclub de jour'!

About Las Terrenas: With over 15 miles of deserted, turquoise-water beaches, 'Time' magazine has described Las Terrenas as having one of the last, long stretches of undeveloped beach in the Caribbean.

The balmy climate with its ever-present trade winds and the warm temperature of the sub-tropical Atlantic Ocean combine to provide this part of the island with year-round, delightful weather with only a few degrees difference in temperature between winter and summer.

Las Terrenas has over 60 French, Italian, German and Dominican restaurants, two large, modern supermarkets, exciting night clubs (dancing on the beach!) and unique gift stores with quality handicrafts, clothing and jewelry. Snorkeling, diving, wind surfing and kite boarding are just steps away from The Sky Terrace. Go hiking, mountain biking, zip-lining, horseback riding on the beach or to the beautiful El Limon waterfall. Our property manager can arrange 'quad'rentals and excursions.

The French bakery (just a short walk from The Sky Terrace) is THE place to go for morning coffee and fresh pastries...you will feel like you're in Paris, but with perfect balmy weather!

Walk the never-ending beach and watch the colorful kiteboards or take lessons! Go diving, snorkeling, hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding on the beach. You can WALK from the Sky Terrace to these Las Terrenas disco and nightclubs:

*Mosquito Bar (Pueblo Pescadora) is a fun lounge and offers excellent margaritas.

*El Toro (Pueblo Pescadora) and MAMA (across from Police station) are great dance spots.

*La Bodega (in the first “mall” on the left from Sky Terrace) a large, Tipico-type bar with live music

About the Owners: Steve and Susan Miller fell in love with Las Terrenas when they first visited the Samana Peninsula to go whale-watching. The Millers live in Louisville, Kentucky, USA and purchased Casa Pura Vida as a vacation home and as a rental property for travelers looking for an alternative to cramped hotel rooms or impersonal all-inclusive resorts. The Sky Terrace was built in spring, 2012 as the owners' private retreat.

How to Travel to Las Terrenas: The easiest and cheapest way to reach Las Terrenas is to fly into El Catey airport (Canadian guests) or Santo Domingo--Los Americas Airport (SDQ), hire a rental car (Budget is approx. $240//week) and then make the easy and beautiful 2 hour drive up the brand new highway which starts just outside the airport and travels through palm plantations and rice paddies. If you fly into El Catey or El Portillo, our manager can pick you up for the same fee as a taxi ($80--$180 US) and he will stop for food or beverages on the way to the apartment!
