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.

                                    My stay here was so wonderful! The house is gorgeous. Large, clean, and very relaxing with a wonderful deck that you can have meals on and listen to the sounds of the ocean waves. The views are incredible, you feel swept away. The short walk down the hill to the beach is easy and you can spend all day swimming in the warm waters, tanning and drinking or eating at the hotels and restaurants nearby. A little farther is the town of Las Terrenas, which is full of shops, stores, restaurants, and nightclubs. We rented ATV's from a company in town and rode around different areas of the peninsula, we even climbed up to see a waterfall. I would recommend this rental to anyone.

                                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, girls getaway, pet owners, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                                    What an incredible vacation this one week was at Las Terrenas at Kristy and John's house. I had a blast with my 5 year old son alongside a close friend. We've loved every minute spent in this positive energy injecting house. Lovely views, tasteful simple interior design, large kitchen, incredible balcony, duplex comfort, lovely house keeper and safe feeling provided by guards. Gorgeous beaches are all near by. This place has a harmonious marriage between a nature and civilization. We can not stop talking about it and we can not wait to go back again and again and again. Do not miss out going to Playa Bonita and Playa Coson for the best beach walk in this universe. Our new favorite easy to get to from New York destination is Casa Orquidea-Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. Viva Casa Orquidea, promise to wait for us.

                                    Owner response: Ahhh, you share our feelings for our house and the area. Our little piece of paradise. Return visits are always welcome!

                                    Great house in quiet location on top of a hill overlooking the Atlantic. House has beautiful hardwood floors and newly renovated bathrooms. Everything is very cozy and comfortable. The patio overlooking a tropical forest and the ocean is amazing. It's a 10-minute walk to the beach, however, car is a must to go to restaurants and grocery stores in las Terrenas.

                                    Set well above the beach, the beautiful home commands an striking view of the north shore. When morning showers sweep across the ocean, you'll have an excellent opportunity for an iconic view of rainbows over the tropical ocean. Kristy, and all the Las Terrenas folks were friendly and responsive. Dinner on the patio, and plenty of massages in the exquisite master bedroom were highlights. We had a lovely stay.

                                    overall our stay was lovely . House was fully equipped to most part. The house is very centrally located to wonderful beaches near by and restaurants. The house is on cliff so be mindful to have a walk down on rocky road for all nearby beaches . We were total of six adults and two kids so two guest room were little too small with kids otherwise they were ok. Host is been extremely helpful in arranging cook, babysitter and basic details prior to our trip. Thanks for your help Kristy. You have beautiful house.

                                    Owner response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Fortunately the road to our community is about to be repaved. One master suite and two guest rooms is generally perfect for three couples which is why we recommend a 6 person max. Some guests do choose to add a few children at their own discretion.

                                    Wonderful week in a lovely home in a beautiful setting and quaint city. The house was beautifully furnished with many amenities and the yard was professionally landscaped. One of our favorite features was the spacious balcony patio where we congregated each morning and evening to enjoy the ocean views. The beach was a short 5-6 minute walk from the house and from there you could walk into the town of Las Terranas. The snorkeling around the point was great and we saw a variety of fish including cuddle fish, octopus and lion fish. We would definitely return to this property but probably not during the heat of the summer as there was no air conditioning.

                                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, girls getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                                    Owner response: So glad you enjoyed your vacation. You are right, breakfast on the terrace is delightful! No our house does not have A/C which is clearly noted on the website and I noticed that we actually went over this in our e-mail correspondance. I guess it was a particularly hot week. Generally the ceiling fans throughout the house keep things pretty comfortable year round. Thanks for choosing our house.

                                    Our stay was was fabulous, the house is absolutely breathtaking, the view is unimaginable. Even if we had a little mishap with the stolen well pump we didn't feel any discomfort or inconvenience , Thelma responded quickly. You have great people working for you. We did bbqs at the house, went to the fisherman's market and made langostina , we went deep sea fishing and made the catch of the day on the bbq with a wild mushroom risotto. We always felt safe.We went out a few times, and our greatest discovery was the the Collonial the best quality and price, the Troika great home made pelmeni and Nikolai the owner is one heck of a guy. The Thalassa (a bit overpriced), Mi Corason (expensive) but great food and service, best cheese burger One love surf shack, typicial and a bit scary at the same time Luis. Overall, the sunsets at the house, the view while sipping a pina colada in the dipping pool made our holidays fabulous. thank you for letting us share your house.

                                    It's been almost two months since we returned & the kids are still talking about this experience. Great food, precious people, incredible views and sights-simply a beautiful country. We could have certainly stayed several more days-there was just so much to see & do we simply ran out of time. I’ve been on several international trips but first time to plan for family of five. Kristy answered numerous emails during the planning process, up until the trip & even a few during our stay. She patiently answered all of my questions without any hesitation, was very timely with her replies & gave honest feedback without a hint of frustration. We kept to her suggestions/advice most of the time. The Vant home is located in a great spot, with a fabulous view. Being located at the end of the road & not located on a through street/road was outstanding. It is obvious they took detailed care in choosing their house. The condition of the home-beautiful wood floors, comfortable beds, large patio & hot tub & the spacious bedrooms were top-notch. 2.5 baths were also a life-saver. We spent most of our time eating out and on a few occasions cooked a meal or two in the house. LT had flying ants after the rain but they went away quickly. Food choices were outstanding-you name it they had it-all excellent choices. Sailing club at the bottom of the hill-coldest beer in all of LT! Rent the Rav4 from the housekeeper. Avoid the rental co at the airport or in town. This made things so easy & we felt completely comfortable driving around LT-although driving is a bit of an experience in and of itself! Only other suggestion we would be to check out the other smaller airports closer to LT. We flew into SD & it required some planning & time to make arrangements for the 2.5-3 hours drive. We are convinced that our decision to come to the DR, Las Terrenas & the Vant home simply could not have been better.

                                    Owner response: Another happy guest :) It delights us to know that our little piece of paradise is so appreciated. Great news. There are now (as of Nov. 2012) flights direct from NYC to the Samana airport (AZS) which is 30 minutes from Las terrenas along a gorgeous new highway with views that will take your breath away! Check it out on the Jet Blue website. It leaves NYC on Sat. or Wed. at 8:30am and has you on the beach by early afternoon. We've been waiting for this. yeah!

                                    We would highly recommend this house, as well as this lovely area to enjoy a very special holiday. We found it to be very beautiful, clean, comfortable, safe, with the most fantastic view!! The pool on the deck was a favorite spot, as well as the large deck and eating area. The bedrooms, especially the master bedroom blew us away!!! The walk to the beach was just down the hill, and the beach was beautiful and we enjoyed the swimming, sun bathing, and walking. In addition, we enjoyed being able to walk to various areas on the beach to enjoy several very yummy lunches, as well as a few cold brews!!! The local fishermen are close by as well, and that was a highlight, being able to choose your fresh fish to bring home and cook on the BBQ on the deck!! In addition, we felt well looked after by the staff and the security personnel. Everyone was friendly and helpful and that was appreciated very much. Ah but all good things must come to an end---we had to leave but it was a holiday of a lifetime, and this house created just the right atmosphere!!!

                                    Having traveled all over the Dominican Republic I can honestly say this place beats them all hands down. The proximity to Las Terrenas, the most beautiful and uncrowded(almost desserted) beach of playa las ballenas, the comfort and elegance and most fantastic view as well as the helpful and friendly staff and owner make this place special. The villa is nicely designed and furnished and has all of the amenities to make your vacation, from the large collection of dvd's, games gallore(watch out for the maid's daughter in dominoes she is a pro!), internet connection and safety of a gated community, views and ocean breeze truely are amazing. These spacious quarters are perfect for families or couples travelling together and do not miss the chance of a home cooked meal by Thelma, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again to Kristy and "crew" for a wonderful experience, Ben and Felicia Johnson
