Property description

El Palomar is nestled in beautiful tropical gardens only a very short 2 minute walk to beautiful beaches, a 10 minute walk from great beach restaurants and a 15-20 minutes walk from town. Originally it was built as a guest house for our larger house La Paloma but we have chosen it as our favorite retreat while in Las Terrenas. It is charming, colorful and simply furnished. It was designed using typical Caribbean materials, cana roof and colorful painted wood siding and partitioning walls, a quaint retreat for the young at heart. Our houses are private from one another but are connected by lush garden paths. Before you arrive we are happy to stock your refrigerator with breakfast items if you wish.

Caribbean Dominican Republic Dominican Republic North Coast Las Terrenas


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We first started traveling to Las Terrenas in 1982 when it was an authentic fishing village. After more trips we purchased our first property and then the land next door where we had El Palomar built from our own design by a trusted Dominican builder. Over the years we have enjoyed painting and decorating it so that it has the charm of a country Dominican house.

Why the Owner Chose Las Terrenas:
We bought this property because of its wonderful location, only 2 minutes from the beach and a lovely 10 minute stroll along the beach to good restaurants, A twenty minute walk will take you to the center of town.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our property is not for everyone. It is for the 'young at heart' and those who want to experience a casual colorful ambiance. The cottage has a cana roof, some walls are brightly painted wood (split palm) and some are stucco, the floors are pigmented cement. The veranda is large and open, surrounded by tropical gardens which are great for bird watching and sunbathing.
