Whether you are lounging by the infinity pool or taking in the breathtaking views of the ocean, relaxation abounds at this stunning home.

Perched atop the exclusive Loma Bonita, the family-friendly villa comfortably sleeps twelve. Amenities like Wi-Fi, filtered water, satellite TV and surround sound ensure that you will be kicking back in the highest comfort. All of the bedrooms boast air conditioning, private bathrooms and well-appointed furnishings that mix antique with modern for an eclectic, stylized feel.

The contemporary kitchen is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, including a 'Ilve' 4 burner with grill; dishwasher; and a filtered water and ice dispensing refrigerator. Aesthetic touches like an apron sink or marbola countertops add to the sleek, urban theme.

In one of the many outdoor spaces, hand-wrought metal work and stone tiles surround the Balinese-style infinity pool. Coupled with jaw-dropping views of the Atlantic, this terrace is perfect for daytime lounging. A full bar and outdoor grill help transition the space for nighttime entertainment.

Casa Phil is a three-minute walk from the beach, located in the quiet, exclusive neighborhood of Loma Bonita. A five-minute drive to the city center, there are a few bars and restaurants within walking distance if you would prefer to stay close to home. In addition to a 24-hour guard, daily cleaning services, and laundry twice a week, all breakfasts and lunches will be provided during your stay.

                      About las terrenas

                      Anywhere you look, one beach is more beautiful than the next one. Playa cosón heads up the list with its turquoise, pristine waters and its three miles of white sand shore. You can actually walk along the sea from the end of playa cosón to playa la bonita (which literally means the beautiful beach,) then playa escondida; cross the hill and you are in playa las ballenas (just nearby Casa Phil), playa punta popi and playa portillo. Over ten miles of a continuous incredible paradise ready for you to discover.

                      Watch the whale!

                      Whale watching in the bay of samaná will be one of the highlights of your visit. Between the months of january to march, humpback whales come from distant oceans to the waters of samaná to perform their courting songs and impress us with fascinating shows of flippering and jumping. These whales have chosen our area to mate and come back every year with their newborns and male companions to start anew their cycle of life.

                      Excursions and day trips

                      Whether on a horse, on an atv, by car or on a boat, there are wonderful excursions and day trips you can enjoy in the area. From el salto de el limón - el limón falls, fishing trips, snorkeling and scuba diving, or just a walking tour of las terrenas, your days can be filled with activity and emotions. Zip-lining and eco tours through this wonderful tropical forests are an incomparable adventure and a total must. My dear friend Francis is the captain of the 45ft catamaran named 'Califa' and you may contact him for a day trip in the Samana bay to the beautiful 'Cayo Levantado' island (my favorite hang out for snorkeling) or to the 'Haites' national park.

                      Fine dining and wining in las terrrenas

                      If you just want to sit back and and enjoy fine drinking and dining, las terrenas and samaná offer you a wide range of international restaurants. From mexican fajitas to an ukranian borscht to a french ratatouille, the cosmopolitan flavor of this town is reflected not only in its population but also in its cuisine. A café au lait and a croissant for breakfast, a cuban sandwich and a mojito for lunch and a paella for dinner is not an unthinkable menu in your culinary journey of las terrenas and samaná. Our favorite hangouts in town (and defenitely 'must do' during your stay) are the 'spoon beach restaurant bar' just 1 minute walk for casa phil owned by willy a cooking gem in town, 'le tre caravelle' owned by the friendly simone for a refined italian fish based dinner (don't leave without trying the risotto tre caravelle), 'la serviette' if you crave for modern french caribbean cuisine, 'la salsa' in the 'fisherman's village with the best price/quality 200 pesos mid day menu.

                      Sports events and sport tours

                      Nothing prevents you from continuing practicing your favorite sports and keeping in shape while vacationing in las terrenas or samaná. You can even participate in a 10k road race, a cross country run, a mountain bike competition, sailing, going to a gym, swimming, kite surfing and surfing in our beaches. There are annual events such as las terrenas 10k and the cross country @ playa morón which are internationally accredited athletic events which promote our area as a main sport tourism destination in the dominican republic. If you are into surfing or have always wanted to try it, here is you chance, visit 'nalu surfshop' owned by my friend and surf instructor william.

                      Nightlife in las terrenas

                      Certainly, one of the most popular social activities for entertainment in las terrenas, dancing and 'clubbing' is a favorite for both national and international tourists visiting the area. Our 'fisherman's village' is a popular spot concentrating most of the discos and bars in las terrenas, but it is not the only area where to have fun. Nightlife is vibrant in this town offering a new world for the visitors to discover. My favorite's hangouts in the 'fisherman's village' are the replay with Nicholas and Enzo for a mix of contemporary and latin music often animated by one of the local dance schools (to practice your bachata and salsa moves), gaia disco owned by sergio our neighbour on loma bonita.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: I'm born and grew up in Italy. I lived in many countries, from Varese in Italy to New York, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona and finally now in Las Terrenas. I'm an environmental engineer graduated from NYU Polytechnic University in NYC and the University of Pavia in Italy. My passions: my son, dune buggies (that I build, sell and rent: contact me if you wish to have one during your stay) and surfing.

                      Why the Owner Chose Las Terrenas:
                      If you've never been to Las Terrenas before it might be difficult to explain this but this town is a unique place on earth, where sometimes time seems to stop and all the issues that make your daily life dissipate and to start living in harmony with nature and the elements surrounding you. I discovered Las Terrenas thanks to my mom in 2003 and then during a vacation here I had the opportunity to purchase a plot of land and this is how the story began...

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Casa Phil is a dream house. It was built with care, love and sacrifice. We built it for our family and hence looked and though of all details during the planning and building process.
