Las Terrenas apartment description

Nestled in lush gardens with a 105ft pool, directly facing one of the country's finest beaches at 50yds, our penthouse offers a unique blend of seclusion, easy access to a wide range of activities, and an authentic Caribbean way of life next to a friendly fishermen village. The area also stands out as one of the Caribbeans last spots of unspoiled natural beauty.
Our penthouse is perfect for a romantic retreat or for friends/families wishing to spend time together yet welcoming some privacy. Its 2,800 sq ft interior space is cozy and elegantly decorated with exotic wood. It is flanked by 2 terraces of 890 and 750 sq ft, each enjoying the same gorgeous view of the garden &ocean, the east one with a beautiful 5 room jacuzzi with seaview. You will appreciate the absolute privacy. 2 of the 3 bedrooms (king size bed) open onto the terrace for enhanced intimacy. All expected amenities are provided: luggage elevator, fully equipped kitchen etc.. You will treasure the peacefulness of our residence while enjoying hotel-like services: very good restaurant, 24/7 surveillance, daily cleaning (3 hours per day), pool and garden maintenance etc. Should you wish to free yourself even more from everyday duties, we selected competent and reliable personnel for you who will take care of grocery shopping, cooking (good cook or real chef including table service) babysitting etc. at very affordable rates.

EXCLUSIVE YET IN TOUCH WITH LOCAL LIFE
Nestled in lush tropical gardens with a 105 foot swimming pool, directly fronting Playa Las Ballenas, known as one of the Dominican Republic’s finest beaches, at 50 yards, our penthouse offers a unique blend of seclusion, easy access to a wide array of leisure activities, and an authentic Caribbean way of life. Far from mass tourism hot spots such as Punta Cana or Cancun, Las Terrenas is still a fishing village, where foreigners and friendly locals mingle in everyday life. This melting pot of local and foreign influences is maybe best exemplified by the quality and creativity of Las Terrenas restaurants, which fuse French haute cuisine, traditional local recipes and fresh sea food ingredients. Make sure you enjoy some of the excellent restaurants in the Fisherman’s village (‘Pueblo de Los Pescadores’) about 1 mile away, on the sea front, some with French chefs. Not only will Las Terrenas offer you a comprehensive range of water sport activities, it also stands out as one of the last spots of unspoiled natural beauty in the Caribbean.

TOGETHER TIME YET PRIVATE SPACES
Our penthouse is perfect for a couple in search of a romantic retreat or for friends/families wishing to spend time together yet welcoming some privacy.
Its 2,800 sq ft of interior space, exotic wood floors and high ceilings, and high-end colonial furniture will make you feel very cozy. The apartment situated on the 3rd and top floor is flanked by two separate terraces measuring 890 and 750 sq ft, each enjoying the same gorgeous view on the tropical garden, swimming pool and ocean. Each terrace has both a porch and an open space to accommodate your wishes for sun or shade. The east terrace has a seaview jaccuzi with 5 rooms including a lying one. You will enjoy their absolute privacy: no peeking neighbor!
Each of the three bedrooms is individually decorated, with king size bed as well as ensuite bathroom. Two of them open onto the terrace for enhanced intimacy.
Our penthouse includes all amenities one can expect from such high-end accommodation: a private elevator for luggage, a vast modern gourmet kitchen with Center Island that is fully equipped (including 2 ovens, dish-washer, microwave, American-style refrigerator, water cooler, wine cellar, etc.), a Viking professional BBQ, air conditioning, LCD cable TV with DVD player, WIFI, HIFI with MP3/CD/Radio/Ipod station, safe, laundry room etc.

PRIVACY YET COMFORT AND SAFETY
This exclusive property combines the best of both worlds: you will treasure the privacy of a quiet and small residence while enjoying services usually associated with hotels – gated entrance and 24/7 surveillance, daily cleaning, gardening and pool maintenance, tennis, very nice restaurant. Should you wish to free yourself even more from everyday duties, we selected competent and reliable personnel for you who will take care of grocery shopping, cooking, babysitting etc. you can hire on demand for $ US 4 an hour.

The residence was designed to preserve the essence of the area by respecting the lakes and green areas in order to offer each resident his own special place. You will find a salt river running through the garden down to the sea.

                      LOCATION

                      The penthouse is tucked away in a secluded cove on the Playa Las Bellenas, one of the finest beaches of the country, minutes away from the fisherman’s village (1.5km) and from Las Terrenas (2km). It is in a confidential residence with lush topical gardens and a 105 foot swimming pool.

                      Taxi service can be organized from El Catay airport (18 miles away, 25 minutes) or Las Americas airport - Santo Domingo airport (95 miles, less than 2h, 180 USD) using the brand new and scenic highway. On site, a car or quad or bike or motorbike is not necessary but can be useful in case you would like to discover the region, for grocery shopping, to go to restaurants - we can help arrange their booking.

                      AN AUTHENTIC CARIBBEAN WAY OF LIFE

                      Far from mass tourism hot spots such as Punta Cana or Cancun, Las Terrenas is a village (11,000 residents) on the Samana Peninsula in the Dominican Republic nestled between Los Haitises mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean.

                      It is a small fishing village with an international flare. Along with the Dominicans, thousands of French, Italian, German, Canadian and American residents call Las Terrenas home. More often than not, they come on vacation and stay for life. It creates a friendly atmosphere where friendly locals, expatriates and tourists mingle in everyday life. This melting pot of local and foreign influences is maybe best exemplified by the quality and creativity of Las Terrenas restaurants, fusing French haute cuisine, traditional local recipes and fresh sea food. Make sure you enjoy some of the very good restaurants in the Fisherman’s village (‘Pueblo de Los Pescadores’) about 1 mile away, on the sea front, some with French chefs.

                      A WIDE RANGE OF LEISURE ACTIVITIES

                      Not only will Las Terrenas offer you a comprehensive range of water sport activities, it also stands out as one of the last spots of unspoiled natural beauty in the Caribbean. Come and explore the islets, mangroves and caves in Los Haitises National Park, observe the humpback whales in their calving grounds, hike or go by 4 x 4 quad – or horse back to El Limon waterfalls, take a ride on quad along the ‘route du café’ (coffee trail) , hike or horse ride through the subtropical mountain forests of Samana Peninsula!
