Once you have decided to rent I will arrange to have you met in Las Terrenas by my housekeeper Thelma who will guide you to the house and get you set up there. She has a Rav 4 which is available to rent should you wish to do that.

Activities in the area: The Samana Peninsula has miles of beautiful beaches, with gorgeous Lomas (hills) running down it's center. Spectacular views! The Samana Bay is a sanctuary for the mating and birthing of Atlantic humpback whales . There are horseback excursions to the impressive Limon waterfall, all manner of watersports is possible,nightclubs and dancing (bachata, merenge, salsa) to keep you hopping, and excellent local and European cuisine to delight the most discerning palate. A new zipline has received rave reviews! There is a small sailing club right down our hill where you can have lunch or rent a boat.

Airports: We fly into Santo Domingo (SDQ), and drive the 2 hours to our home. The trip is on brand new highways that take you through palm plantations, the mountains of a national park, rice paddies and finally along the side of the mountains of the Samana peninsula with spectacular ocean views. We are 30 minutes from a new airport Samana 'El Catey' so check for flights there first. As of 2013 there are Jet Blue flights from NYC on Wed. and Sat.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My stay here was so wonderful! The house is gorgeous. Large, clean, and very relaxing with a wonderful deck that you can have meals on and listen to the sounds of the ocean waves. The views are incredible, you feel swept away.

The short walk down the hill to the beach is easy and you can spend all day swimming in the warm waters, tanning and drinking or eating at the hotels and restaurants nearby. A little farther is the town of Las Terrenas, which is full of shops, stores, restaurants, and nightclubs. We rented ATV's from a company in town and rode around different areas of the peninsula, we even climbed up to see a waterfall. I would recommend this rental to anyone.

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect location for our two week stay in LT in July 2014. The breeze from the ocean made the house feel pleasant even on the hottest days, the views from the large terrace onto lush vegetation with the ocean in the background were breath taking and the house itself well designed, fully equipped and tastefully decorated. Everything looked just like the pictures (or even better). The trip into town for food and entertainment was quick in the vehicle we rented from the housekeeper - definitely recommended. We have stayed at other vacation rentals in LT before but (finally) have found the best possible vacation home for our family.

SUPERB VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible vacation this one week was at Las Terrenas at Kristy and John's house.
I had a blast with my 5 year old son alongside a close friend.
We've loved every minute spent in this positive energy injecting house.
Lovely views, tasteful simple interior design, large kitchen, incredible balcony, duplex comfort, lovely house keeper and safe feeling provided by guards.
Gorgeous beaches are all near by.
This place has a harmonious marriage between a nature and civilization.
We can not stop talking about it and we can not wait to go back again and again and again.
Do not miss out going to Playa Bonita and Playa Coson for the best beach walk in this universe.
Our new favorite easy to get to from New York destination is Casa Orquidea-Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic.
Viva Casa Orquidea, promise to wait for us.

Great value, beautiful house, quiet location!

  • 4 of 5
Great house in quiet location on top of a hill overlooking the Atlantic. House has beautiful hardwood floors and newly renovated bathrooms. Everything is very cozy and comfortable. The patio overlooking a tropical forest and the ocean is amazing. It's a 10-minute walk to the beach, however, car is a must to go to restaurants and grocery stores in las Terrenas.

Beautiful Hillside Location

  • 4 of 5
Set well above the beach, the beautiful home commands an striking view of the north shore. When morning showers sweep across the ocean, you'll have an excellent opportunity for an iconic view of rainbows over the tropical ocean.

Kristy, and all the Las Terrenas folks were friendly and responsive. Dinner on the patio, and plenty of massages in the exquisite master bedroom were highlights.
We had a lovely stay.

GORGEOUS

  • 4 of 5
overall our stay was lovely . House was fully equipped to most part. The house is very centrally located to wonderful beaches near by and restaurants. The house is on cliff so be mindful to have a walk down on rocky road for all nearby beaches .
We were total of six adults and two kids so two guest room were little too small with kids otherwise they were ok.
Host is been extremely helpful in arranging cook, babysitter and basic details prior to our trip. Thanks for your help Kristy. You have beautiful house.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Fortunately the road to our community is about to be repaved. One master suite and two guest rooms is generally perfect for three couples which is why we recommend a 6 person max. Some guests do choose to add a few children at their own discretion.

Las Terrenas is an exciting Dominican town with a strong European ex-patriot population, French, Italian, German. It is located on the Samana Peninsula, with some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. You can walk for miles along gorgeous palm treed beaches with delightful small hotels and condos...no High rises! Great local and European cuisine, exciting night life, lots to do! Our home is one of only handful of houses that sit on a hill with ocean view and is walking distance to the beach (5 minutes) and town (25 minutes).

Other Activities: Kite boarding, zipline, ATV excursions

Golf: We are about 1 1/2 hours up the coast from a beautiful golf course at Playa Grande.
