Property description

Beautiful, spacious villa in small exclusive beachfront development with 24 hour security, gated community - located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. Complete tranquillity in beautiful, peaceful setting. Vehicle free........

Guests are invited to use the facilities of the neighbouring exclusive beach club and spa, situated in the gated community, where massages and other treatments are available (upon reservation) with use of the poolside bar and catering services.

Owner's villa, very attractively furnished and decorated. Villa Céline is an original architect design of 250 m2 with private pool, featuring submerged 'double bed' - great for relaxing and sunbathing. The living area opens on to extensive poolside terraces and wooden deck. There is also a covered terrace and large gas barbecue.

Four large double bedrooms with natural 'cross ventilation' and air con. - all with private bathrooms and french doors opening on to charming balconies with garden views. Spacious, light bedrooms located on ground floor and first floor.

Dora, my popular housekeeper, can prepare delicious meals upon request and also arrange for the local fisherman to bring freshly caught fish and lobsters to the garden gate.........

The set off point for horseback or walking trips to the spectacular El Limon waterfall is just 5 minutes away.........and Samana Bay (whale watching trips and visits to the National Marine Park)) is 15 minutes further along the scenic route.
Las Terrenas, nestled in the Samana Peninsula, is a little corner of paradise with long white sandy beaches lined with coconut trees, a charming village, wonderful food and a warm welcome. Many excursions and activities are available in this area.

.Villa Céline is situated at Playa Estillero- an unspoilt beach set in a very calm bay, bordered by coconut palms and protected by an extensive coral reef - truly a tropical paradise! Vehicle free!! Guests at Villa Céline are invited to use the facilities of the neighbouring exclusive beach club and spa where massages and other treatments are available (upon reservation) with poolside bar and catering service - situated within the gated community.

Only 5 minutes from El Limon............small village with numerous restaurants and shops.....access to spectacular waterfall.

A short drive (15 minutes)from Las Terrenas - a typical, vibrant Dominican village on the Samana peninsula, often described as the most beautiful part of the island - the 'Hidden Gem'. There are numerous shops and excellent restaurants. Wonderful scenery and miles of magnificent beaches.

About 20 minutes from Samana town where you can take a boat to go 'whale watching'..........sure to be a memorable trip.

.......

The Dominicans are well-known for their friendly nature and 'love of life' - the mix of Europeans who are resident here and the local population is harmonious.

Other Activities: kite surfing, whale watching,

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I lived in the Caribbean during 8 years, on board a yacht, and sailed extensively through the region. When I discovered the Samana region I considered it to be amongst the most beautiful of areas I had visited - still retaining the charm of the Caribbean as it used to be, before the arrival of all inclusive resorts etc..

Why the Owner Chose Las Terrenas:
I bought the plot of land at Playa Estillero as I was attracted to the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside..........and the complete tranquility of the location. I spent long periods with my architect during the planning and construction stages of Villa Céline - we were determined to create a property that was as comfortable as possible for guests (myself and family included) while being environmentally friendly. The 4 light and spacious bedrooms each have an ensuite bathroom - guests often tell me that they felt they were staying in their own private boutique hotel..........

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I love the fact that I can walk out of my garden gate and access the beach, which is just 150 metres away, via a private path from our gated community. Very often we are alone on the beach and walk for miles along the shoreline, around various headlands, totally undisturbed. All the time surrounded by spectacular scenery and taking an occasional dip in the warm sea along the way. So peaceful as this is a vehicle free zone - no road along the beach. I sometimes arrange for a horseback ride along the beach during the early morning hours - a great way to start the day! When I return to Villa Céline I usually have another dip, this time in the swimming pool, before relaxing on the poolside terrace with a cool, long drink and a good book - my idea of heaven! The tropical gardens surrounding the poolside terraces and the property are so lush.........I'm now able to taste bananas from trees that I planted myself - sometimes in the company of the beautiful humming birds that visit the exotic flowers alongside. If I cherish the idea of a completely 'chilled out' day I may pop next door to the beach club/spa that my neighbours created and have a wonderful massage on their roof top terrace, overlooking the sea and bay of Playa Estillero. Sometimes we also pop in if we feel like using their poolside bar or catering facilities if we choose not to drive to one of the numerous restaurants in Las Terrenas - so convenient.
