About the Samana Peninsula:
The Samana Peninsula, considered by many to be the most beautiful part of the Dominican Republic boasts unspoiled white and gold sand beaches with crystal clear turquoise water, breathtaking waterfalls, caves with Taino-Indian drawings combined with lush mountains studded with coconut trees.
Whale-watching excursions are offered between mid-January and mid-March.
Must Sees: Parque National de Los Haitises (Indian-caves with drawings) and the El Limon Parque National Waterfalls.

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 this part of the island with year-round, delightful weather with only a few degrees difference in temperature between winter and summer. Las Terrenas is both a small fisherman village and it is also a vibrant cosmopolitan beach town with over 60 restaurants, many of witch are owned by French or Italian permanent residents and located along the beachfront and in the center of the village.There is a modern super marked and a lot of local shops only a few steps from Casa Tropical. 5 banks with ATM,s exciting nightclubs and unique gift stores with quality handicrafts etc within walking distance. Watch the color full Kite Boards or go diving, snorkeling, mountain biking or horseback riding.

About Casa Tropical (and the owner): Pablo Bachatero is an art historian who traveled through Europe, Africa, The Americas and Asia for over 30 years but fell in love with Las Terrenas.
He rents the house out when he is traveling to other travelers looking for an alternative to cramped hotel rooms or impersonal all-inclusive resorts.
CASA TROPICAL is located in a QUIET BOTANICAL GARDEN surrounded by mountains studded with coconut trees.
Guests may buy fresh fish, crab or shrimp each day right on the beach and prepare in the equipped kitchen.
Purchase freshly baked baguettes and pastries at the French bakery just around the corner of the house.
Watch the moon rising above the mountains from the front patio of the house.

CASA TROPICAL was specially built to take advantage of the trade winds, so AIR CONDITION is NOT NEEDED.
I sleep 6 months a year even without the ceiling fan!
Air conditioning (if you really want it) is an extra option ($20 a day).
FREE WiFi 7.2Mbps 10GB

The island has four international airports:

Santo Domingo Las Americas Int. Airport (ca. 2 hours)
Punta Cana Int. Airport (ca. 4 hours)
Puerto Plata Int. Airport (ca. 2,5 hours)
El Catey / Samaná Int. Airport (ca. 30 min)

Las Terrenas is a new hotspot for foreigners and people from the Capital, Santo Domingo (SD). Since the completion of the new highway between Santo Domingo and Samaná, people from SD have started to come more frequently. The drive takes 2 hours from the center of Las Terrenas to the center of SD. Also, the new airport El Catey is open for international flights, mainly used for Connections from NYC, Boston and Toronto. JetBlue started 2 flights a week non-stop from New York.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am an art historian who traveled to 40 countries in Europe, The Far East, Africa and the Americas.

Why the Owner Chose Las Terrenas:
It was my dream to own a house in The Caribbean surrounded by palm trees and tropical flowers such as Bougainvillea and orchids (40 different species are growing in the front and back garden). The French Colonial architecture specially built for the tropics and the orientation to the East to benefit the Trade Winds so that air conditioning is not needed was important as well. Safety, well stocked super markets, French, Italian, German and local restaurants were an added value.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Located in a tropical park. Surrounded by hills hills with lush vegetation and covered with palm trees . Daily visitors are humming birds, butterflies and small color full lizards Within walking distance to the great beaches of Las Terrenas.
