This is the best house you can rent in this area! The house comes with an amazing staff who will take care of all your needs. The beach out front is so beautiful it’s right out of a postcard!!! I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for the best vacation with or without a family...we were a family of four with another two! Also the pool is bigger and deeper than it looks, our kids were either in the ocean or pool! Can’t say enough positive things about our time!

Thanks a lot, hoping to see you again in casa Inca.
By far the best house we saw in Las Terrenas!
We just returned from an amazing week in Las Terrenas staying at Casa Inca. We have a family of 7 with kids from 18 to 8. The house exceeded our expectations by far, we absolutely loved everything about it. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen and living areas have plenty of room - we spent most of our time at the house in the outdoor covered living area by the pool. The grounds are immaculate and private - we felt like we were in our own garden of eden. We loved being able to walk out the back gate and onto the beach. The small road that separates the back gate from the beach is a non factor and is beautifully done in cobblestone. It leads right to town, so is very convenient. This was our first time using vrbo.com and the entire rental process was very smooth and easy, from working with Robert (the owner), to Beatrice (the property manager), and Nina (the housekeeper/cook). They were all very gracious and helpful. Nina is wonderful. She does not speak english but was able to accomplish everything we needed or wanted from her. The beach is gorgeous and felt very private. The only semi busy days for people on the beach were Saturday and Sunday when the locals go to the beach. The ocean was incredible - beautiful colors. We loved snorkeling and looking for shells at the bottom. We thoroughly enjoyed Las Terrenas. It was the perfect sized town and not touristy. We felt very safe and enjoyed walking off the main roads where the locals live to experience their lifestyle. The excursions we did were: El Limon on horseback, Samana zipline, and dunebuggy ride to Playa Rincon with Samana Extreme. They were all great but our favorites were the zipline and dunebuggies - these are a must do. We spent a lot of time walking around Las Terrenas and can honestly say that Casa Inca is the nicest home and grounds that we saw. We feel like we absolutely scored on our choice of homes to rent. This was a vacation we will never forget! Quick warning for families, the area has a lot of Europeans visiting which meant frequent topless sunbathers - all of which were 50+ years old. We found this inconsiderate as this is not a topless designated area.
Many thanks for your comment which is a reward to all the efforts we do to give the best experience possible to our guests. Just a remark for the topless sunbathers: we go there since 14 years now and it is the first time we ear about that. We never saw any in our trips, so probably you met a "special" group! Hoping to see you again in Casa Inca as many of our guests who come back year after year.
Great vacation at Casa Inca
We stayed at Casa Inca Jan17th to Feb 1st 2014.We had walked thru the house the year before and were very excited to stay there.We were not disappointed.And
to our surprise a forth bedroom with a full bathroom and a large patio had been added to the second floor plus a total update to the kitchen.We had a wonderful stay as our family arrived for a family reunion.Casa Inca is perfectly located at the quiet end of Ballenas beach ,but a short walk to many restaurants.The house is right across from the beach.The owners Robert and Lynne supply lots of beach lounge chairs to relax on the beach.The pool is very well kept and the garden is beautiful.The house has everything you need and Nina the housekeeper is fabulous (and a good cook)We are already booked for next season very excited to go back to this house and visit with many great friends we met in Las Terrenas.
Mike S. from Russia
We stayed in Casa Inca from 7 to 17 November 2013.
When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that villa is much better in real than in the photos. Villa is very comfortable and cozy. The villa is located in a cottage village on the Las Ballenas beach. After we spent several days there and drove around nearby beaches, we came to conclusion that Las Ballenas beach is the most beautiful, clean, calm and crowd-free. Every morning it is cleaned and swept. The seas is pure and crystal clear, but waves and sand can make water a bit murky. There is a road along the beach and to go to the beach you need to go out of the gate and cross this road. But I can tell that traffic is low and it absolutely doesn't disturb the rest. If you have plans to eat in restaurants-one of the more nearest restaurants is located in a 15-20 minutes walk. And, in my opinion, if you plan to cook food in villa, you must rent a car (or any vehicle) as the closest decent grocery store is located in a 10-15 minutes drive in Las Terrenas town. Villa furnishing: There are 3 rooms in the villa (as you can see in the photos). One of them with an exit to swimming-pool has a "king size" bed and is big, light and very comfortable. There is a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and two wash basins in it. There are also two other rooms which are smaller. There is a hall with a separate shower and toilet in it. There is nothing to complain about, everything works well. There is a hairdryer; towels are changed every other day. Beach towels are also there. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is everything necessary to cook: plates, pans, forks and knifes - enough of all. We were very happy to use BBQ. The swimming-pool and garden are excellent! The territory around the villa is very green and lush. There are beautiful bushes and palm trees which hide the villa from the strangers ‘looks. In real life the swimming-pool is much bigger than in the photos. The water is chlorinated. Every day at about 10-10.30 a.m. a very nice, undisturbing (??????-?? ??? ????? ??? ?? ????????? ????????) cleaning lady comes to clean the villa. Every day, as it got dark, security-guard came. I`ve read in reviews that there are many bloodsucking insects. Yes, it`s true, but mosquito-killer helps. This is not our first trip and not the first villa we rented for our family. I assure you, you won`t regret if you choose Casa Inca.
Since the stay of Mike, we have made considerable improvements in the house. We have changed the kitchen and build a new modern italian style kitchen. We have also built a new room on the first floor, with a bathroom ensuite. This room, with a king size bed, has a wonderful panoramic terrace of 50 square meters with view on the sea. So now the house has 4 rooms and can receive up to 10 people.
Concerning the road in front of the villa, its a paved road (originally it was a sand road) which comes from the village. The road is a dead end 300 meters after the villa so there is nearly no traffic. It has also made access to the village and restaurants much easier and faster !
Que du bonheur!
Nous venons de passer 9 jours à la Casa Inca, 2 couples + 2 enfants de 10 ans + 1 ami : la villa est très TRES bien, mieux que l'on ne le supposait :
- le descriptif est conforme,
- elle est vaste, bien tenue et bien équipée,
- le jardin est superbe et bien entretenu, tout comme la piscine
- et SURTOUT la situation est fa-bu-leu-se ! Beaucoup mieux située que d'autres villas que nous avons vues à la location : la plage devant est très belle, peu fréquentée, et vraiment au pied de la maison. Et malgré cela, on est juste en 3 mn de voiture ou à 1/4 h à pied du centre de Las Terrenas, restaurants et commerces.
- L'accueil et le manager sur place sont parfaits : agréables et efficaces. Le personnel l'est aussi, et surtout Nina la cuisinière... très très douée ! Laissez-là faire les courses pour vous et cuisiner à sa guise, vous ne serez pas déçus.
Bref zéro défaut que ce soit pour la villa elle-même comme pour le service sur place. Que du bonheur !
Juste une petite suggestion pour le propriétaire : le jardin est magnifique, et les éclairages (projecteurs) semblent super... quel dommage que vous vous les réserviez !
l'éclairage de jardin est maintenant disponible pour nos hôtes.
nice house - could do with mosquito screens
The Las Terrenas area is really nice and far away from the all-inclusive resorts that have given the country a bad image among travelers. Thanks to a large community of European expats you can eat out surprisingly well in some of the beachfront restaurants. While the village is nothing special, long pristine beaches are just 10 mins away by car.
The house does look similar to the pics posted on homeaway.com. It is, however, separated from the beach by a road. With the exception of Saturday/Sunday there is not much traffic, so it did not bother us much.
We enjoyed the well tended garden/pool area and the shady terrace which are ideal for lazy afternoons reading books. The maid will also cook for you - we loved the spicy fish with rice and beans. You can get fresh fish straight off the boat 5m mins walk from the house.
The house does have one big drawback: Neither the windows nor the sliding doors or the porch area are screened. This means the house fills up with bugs, including lots of mosquitoes, when you switch on the lights after sunset. Do bring plenty of strong mosquito repellent if you come here, you will need it!
Casa Inca is situated in Playa las ballenas, the most beautiful beach of the region and only a few minutes away from the town center. Las Terrenas is a vibrant and typical Dominican village on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, on the Samana peninsula, known as the most beautiful part of the island. Many shops and excellent restaurants. Miles of unspoiled beaches and wonderful vegetation. The mix of Europeans who have settled here and the local population is harmonious and the Dominicans are well-known for their friendliness and 'joie de vivre'. From Santo Domingo airport, count less than 2 hours by car or taxi on the new motorway, from Puerto Plata airport, count 3 1/2 hours. From Cathey airport, 20 minutes by taxi. Other Activities: Kite surfing
