Walk to Playa Baillenes, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, Kitesurfing, scuba diving, fishing. 25 minute walk along the beach to town. Excellent local and European cuisine. Exciting night life...music, dancing, casino. Excursions... whale watching, Limon waterfalls, fishing, scuba diving. Lots of local color in this vibrant Dominican town. Rent includes 3 days/wk (3 hours each) housekeeping. Can be hired for additional time and cooking. Rental of a quad/all terrain vehicle recommended to explore the area and for evening trips to town.
Sailing Club with Kayak, windsurf and buggieboard, sailboat and hobiecat rental.


Once you have decided to rent I will arrange to have you met in Las Terrenas by my housekeeper Thelma who will guide you to the house and get you set up there. She has a Rav 4 which is available to rent should you wish to do that.

Activities in the area: The Samana Peninsula has miles of beautiful beaches, with gorgeous Lomas (hills) running down it's center. Spectacular views! The Samana Bay is a sanctuary for the mating and birthing of Atlantic humpback whales . There are horseback excursions to the impressive Limon waterfall, all manner of watersports is possible,nightclubs and dancing (bachata, merenge, salsa) to keep you hopping, and excellent local and European cuisine to delight the most discerning palate. A new zipline has received rave reviews! There is a small sailing club right down our hill where you can have lunch or rent a boat.

Airports: We fly into Santo Domingo (SDQ), and drive the 2 hours to our home. The trip is on brand new highways that take you through palm plantations, the mountains of a national park, rice paddies and finally along the side of the mountains of the Samana peninsula with spectacular ocean views. We are 30 minutes from a new airport Samana 'El Catey' so check for flights there first. As of 2013 there are Jet Blue flights from NYC on Wed. and Sat.
