Paradise in Samana
Paradise in Samana
This was the best vacation I have had in 3o years. Renting a house by computer is always a roll of the dice, you need an element of luck to be successful. We won the lotto with Casa Pina. The location is perfect. Sittting majestically on a hill overlooking the palm trees that grow to the seashore. The sunsets will melt you stresss away as the sun slowly settles into the sea for the night. The flowers and garden around the house a so well manicured and the sparkling pool, all come together to create you own private resort. My friends and I enjoyed dinners cooked on the grill and the well equiped kitchens. The new beautiful supermarket in town has everything you will ever need but there are also gourmet shops for special items. I was very happy at the Italian Market, just up the road a few block from the supermarket. Here there are all the luxuries of a modern city and resort in a quaint fishing village infused with the internaational flavor of the French, Dutch , German , and English Ex-Pat community. You must explore the beach at Las Terrenas and the fifhermans Village Restaurants. For a world class spa experience the Alise is a five star experience. Be sure to meet the owner Inca from France. She is so warm and friendly and a wealth of information. I could go on and on for hours but I will leave some discoveries for you. I want to close with a special thank to the owner and to Bea who handles the management. They have created a small slice of heaven.

My family and I are just back from a week renting this property. We had a fantastic time and the house is perfect in every way. The panoramic views are amazing at all times of the day and the house well laid out and maintained. The beach is really close, a short walk away through the verdant compound. We had the beautiful beach almost to ourselves. We're already plotting our return - a perfect house for a family with young children plus one auntie and one granny.

Three friends and I stayed here for 6 nights. We had a great time, but there are some issues with the place. The wi-fi didn't work, we had no hot water after the first 2 days, we spent one evening without lights or fans, and we never had enough toilet paper. I would be sure to check about all of these things before staying here. This house is about a 15 minute drive to Las Terrenas, so if you want to spend time there, you will need some transportation. It is a nice location if you plan to visit El Limon waterfall or do any excursion our of Samana. The description say you can walk to the beach but no one showed us the path or how to get there. The view is amazing and it is very quiet here. I would stay here again, but I would definitely check on the "little things" that if there are too many, seems like a "big thing".

Oh yes, this is a winner!

Living in the Dominican Republic for the past 3 years, we have become quite familiar with the island and what is available both in terms of locations and rental properties. We recently needed a place to share with some visiting family and friends. We know and love the Las Terrenas area for its natural, pristine & diverse beauty with wonderful restaurants and multiple opportunities for one-day excursions (whale watching, waterfall in nearby El Limon, horseback riding, quad off-roading, etc...), but our previous option was unavailable, so we turned to VRBO. Well, once we pulled up to Casa La Pina and toured the house we felt immediately blessed and excited because it was just fantastic! We spent a day on the beach just below the property that is just simply described as stunning paradise. We spent another day in town getting our fresh lobster and fruits/vegetables to BBQ on the deck that evening just after we floated the morning and early afternoon away in the pool. It is a well-maintained and managed property with amazing ocean and palm views and a sense of privacy, BUT is also safe, centrally-located, and value-priced. That is a balance of factors that is a rare find, and with it makes Casa La Pina our top choice on the island! I must say, I do share this review with consternation, as this is a jewel of a place, making it oh so difficult to share! So, you´re welcome!

The house and location were just as advertised. The house is very open and breezy, with lots of great windows and outdoor areas. I especially liked the very large, fully opening window that connects the downstairs kitchen to the shaded veranda. The town is very close by and quite lively, and the people are very friendly and welcoming. Very good restaurants and shops abound, and best of all, you can buy fish and lobsters directly from the local fishermen and have a great barbeque at the house. Don't miss the whale watching if you are there in season. And my kids enjoyed the horse ride up to the large waterfall. Great place for those who want an activity packed vacation or those who just want to relax and unwind.

An unpoiled paradise!!
An unpoiled paradise!!
My husband and I have been visiting Las Terranas yearly for the past 5 years. As veterans of cruises, all-inclusives and Florida theme parks, we were ready for something different. Some friends who are more adventurous travellers than we are introduced us to Las Terranas, and now we are hooked! It is a bit off the beaten path, but we love it for it's authenticity, it's beautiful beaches, the fabulous restaurants, and the laid-back lifestyle. We've stayed at different accomodations, but Casa la pina is perfect for us and we've been back 3 times!. It is reasonably priced, spacious, and private. The large, covered terrace and the pool overlook a panoramic vista. There is airconditioning in the bedrooms which is a welcome luxury. We love the open air life with the doors and windows thrown open, but there are times you just want to cool down after a shower or at night and it is great to have that option. It is situated in a gated community on a large private hill-top lot with beautiful landscaping, a private beach, and tennis courts. We are foodies and love sampling different foods. Many European expats seem to have settled in Las Terranas and it is reflected in the diversity of the cuisine. Many of the restaurants are on the beach where you dine al fresco or in an open pavilion. In most restaurants, a full course dinner for two with wine or cocktails costs about $45US or less. When you are tired of eating and relaxing, try a trip on horseback (the only way to get there!) up the mountain in nearby El Limon to the spectacular waterfall. Just drive a few miles into the town of El Limon and many Dominican guides will approach you to escort you to the waterfall. Or you can rent ATVs to explore remote beaches. This is definitely an unspoiled place, but every year that we go back, there seems to be more development. Hopefully it will not lose it's natural, unspoiled character. Because this part of the Dominican Republic is not as "americanized" as many other vacation destinations, it definitely helps to know a bit of Spanish, or at last bring a good Spanish dictionary. Miguel, the caretaker, speaks excellent English and is a great resource. Be sure to tell him that Marie and Paul say "Hola" and that we'll be back soon!

My wife and I came up from Santo Domingo on the brand new highway. There was an tendency to want to speed, however a few radar police kept us near the posted limit. Getting over the mountain into Las Terreanas was an adventure, but once by the shore, we had entered a paradise. The house is spacious and very clean. The bathroom shower was very large, in fact the whole "living experience" rated favorably with a five star hotel. We spent quite a bit of time on the porch which looks out over the ocean, has a lovely breeze, and has comfortable seating for games, dinner, or watching the many birds that fly close by. It is just a few steps to a crystal clear pool and sunbathing area. I tried to limit my exposure to the sun but underestimated its power, so watch out. The full kitchen just off the porch offered the possibility of great dinners since twenty minutes away was a very modern grocery store with all the convenience of an American supermarket. The prices were very close to what we pay in the States. But since our stay was less than a week, we took advantage of the many fine, fine, eating establishments in the area. Apparently, there is a large European expat community in Las Terreanas. Americans have not found this community yet. So the range of places to eat is broad and has a European slant. We ate wonderfully at a number of places; Italian, French, and the seafood was very tasty. We were walking along the beach one day and discovered a roadside fish market where fishermen bring their daily catch. I suspect the local chiefs get their seafood there since everything we ate tasted as fresh as possible. The house is part of a complex that has security guards and its own private beach. We spent a lot of time walking the winding roads, checking out the varied housing styles, and enjoying the peaceful scenery. It is a tropical climate, however we experienced no mosquitoes or other pests and could sit out at night playing cards etc. without being bothered. Only one complaint; I tried to send a postcard to the States. Maybe it was my lack of Spanish, but for some reason, the postcard never arrived. The Dominican Republic may be a third world country, but Las Terreanas is definately first class.
