Villa El Secreto is located just outside the village of Las Terrenas in the Samana Peninsula of Dominican Republic; considered by locals and visitors alike as one of the prettiest and still unspoiled parts of the country.
Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the villa is totally private and set in 700 sq meters of tropical gardens, coconut trees and exuberant vegetation. The nearest beach, Las Ballenas, one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the area is only 125 meters from the home. Still within short walking distance is “Pueblo de los Pescadores;” the center of night life in town and where most restaurants, bars, discos and other conveniences are located.
The main house features two bedrooms, a full bathroom and large kitchen and living room opening to the pool area. The bungalow separated from the main house by the pool, offers one bedroom with its own kitchen, bathroom and seating area. The villa is perfect for families, friends or couples looking to share accommodations but wishing to keep their privacy.
We welcome you with breakfast items for your first morning* at the villa and maid service and gardener are included with your rental.
Dream the day away at the beach or by the pool; take a day trip to Los Haitises National Park or El Limon waterfall. Other activities, day trips and excursions can be booked with local travel agencies or explored on your own. At the end of the day, walk for dinner to one of the many restaurants in town or stay, have a drink and grill your own in our little corner of paradise. We are proud to be a Certified Wildlife Habitat

About: We love to travel and take every opportunity to visit new places and experience new cultures. We fell in love with Las Terrenas the first time we visited and after searching for a beach house in many places in Central and South America. Beautiful mountains, breathtaking beaches, great weather and a village where people still know each other are part of why we choose Las Terrenas. When we bought Villa El Secreto, the property was in terrible shape; we have spent much time and effort repairing it and adding all the details that make it a much loved home. Originally, we visited the house on holidays, but as friends and family joined us; we were encouraged to offer the property for others to enjoy the house and the beauty and people of Las Terrenas. We are glad we did as we very much like having guests from all over the world!!! Our home in Las Terrenas is still our favorite place to getaway; we visit as much as our work permits, maintain it as if we were there and enjoy many happy memories while waiting for the next time to return. We hope you too enjoy our home and Las Terrenas as much as we do.
