HONEYMOON RETREAT WITH PRIVATE POOL -300 YARDS TO BEST BEACH-NO CAR NEEDED!

Las Terrenas Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1 queen bed, 2 twin daybeds, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

With soaring ceilings, open, light-filled space AND your own private swimming pool (no tan lines! :), the new Sky Terrace is a luxury retreat at a bargain price!

Walk just 300 yards to the best beach in Las Terrenas. Unlike other properties at Playas Bonita or Coson, no car is needed as it is a safe, 5 minute walk along the beach road to the international restaurants and shops in town.

Completed in 2012 as the owners’ private retreat, the contemporary, second-story Sky Terrace was built to take advantage of the cool breezes and stunning views across protected grasslands to the palm tree-covered hills. Prepare your meals in the large, equipped kitchen and relax on the screened porch and balcony.

The Sky Terrace is beautifully decorated in teal-blue and green with glass brick windows, designer bathroom fixtures, and gleaming tile floors.

The balcony offers ever-changing vistas and unforgettable sunsets. A truly romantic place for an unforgettable honeymoon or special anniversary.

Congratulations on discovering the BEST vacation property in Las Terrenas! The owners love to read, so they designed the new apartment with over a dozen different locations to relax with a good book!

The spacious bedroom has large closets and the living room boasts the “most comfortable chair in the world!” plus a twin-size cushioned sofa. The dining table near the fully-equipped kitchen can be easily moved to the screened porch or onto the balcony for 'al fresco' dining.

WIFI allows total Internet access.

The balcony’s cushioned loungers are perfect for private sun-bathing AND night-time star-gazing. The green hills, studded with pastel-colored villas, are reminiscent of Italian hill-towns and watching the villa lights blink on at night is truly magical.

Ceiling fans in the living/dining area, bedroom and back porch catch the breezes from the numerous screened windows and keep the Sky Terrace comfortably cool.

The Sky Terrace is available to rent separately or together with the neighboring Casa Pura Vida which has a totally private swimming pool (see HomeAway listing 202857).

You simply won’t find a more tranquil, private and peaceful setting that is just steps from the beach and the excitement of Las Terrenas.

PS: Ask Susan for her recommendations on the best ways to travel from the airport to Las Terrenas-- she's always happy to help!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5
The Sky Terrace was wonderful! The place is just like the photos show. Breakfast on the balcony every morning was magical. Communication was quick and simple with Susan. The groundskeeper Frito was very helpful and was just a phone call away throughout the trip. The location was great! You have nature all around, but a 5 minute walk and you are in the middle of town. I would recommend this property and would love to stay again! The only downside was the wifi was out during our stay, but that was out of our control. Great beaches and restaurants all around!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad Kristi had such a wonderful stay at The Sky Terrace! Our manager Frito told me she and her friend were "extra-nice guests" and the temporary WiFi problem has been fixed. Because they live in Santo Domingo, I look forward to their next "mini-vaction" with us!

Home sick for The Sky Terrace!

  • 5 of 5
I am in love with Las Terrenas and I have Susan to thank! My boyfriend and I enjoyed our week long vacation so much so that we've recommended this property to anyone who would listen.
What you see is NOT what you get at The Sky Terrace, it's BETTER! Susan thought of everything. When we arrived Frito, the property manager, welcomed us and showed us around the rental. He was very helpful throughout our stay. He answered questions, worked the grounds, arranged our excursion to El Limon and transportation to the airport.
Email communication with Susan was simple and quick! The packet of information she provided was greatly utilized. I only wish there was a more localized map of LT that highlighted the shops and restaurants Susan mentioned.
Getting around LT was easy. With everything being so close to the rental property we were able to walk everywhere. I'm a pretty clumsy gal so we decided not to take advantage of the motoconchos. However, we might have to rent quads so we can explore a little further next time we visit.
Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home! We can't wait to come back!!

Cannot wait to return!

  • 5 of 5
All around beautiful property!

Perfectly located, less then 5 min walk from Playa las Terrenas set back off the main road, which is great b/c the road can get quite busy with cars and motorcycles. Easy walking distance to town with restaurants, cafe's, shopping and short moto-taxi ride to well supplied grocery store.

Property was accurately described, well equipped and clean. Frito, the property manager was helpful and takes great care of the place! The pool had just been completed on our arrival and is a great addition.

Correspondance with the owner was a breeze and the info/tips/directions provided for our stay were great! I have already recommended this place to friends.

One thing to note: if your are an active vacationer as we are: snorkel, kayak, SUP, surf, there are few options in town to rent equipment from. If these are actives that you are looking to do I would look into bringing your own (if possible) or renting from SD before heading north.

High-end Design at a Reasonable Price

  • 5 of 5
The Sky Terrace is a lovely second floor apartment decorated in contemporary fashion. The owner, Susan, has a real eye for design and I enjoyed how each decoration fit perfectly with the next. The white walls and ample windows make the area bright and cheery, and the views of the green fields and hills from the back patio are serene. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk from the stunning beaches of Las Terrenas. Plenty of restaurants are also within walking distance, or you can choose to make dinner in the well-appointed kitchen. I found the apartment to be pleasantly cool during hot, humid weather as the second story breezes and high powered fans work like a charm. Susan was kind, helpful and prompt in responding to emails, and the house manager, Frito, was very welcoming and hospitable. This rental will be a real steal when the private swimming pool is finished!

Owner's Response: Katie was one of our FIRST guests and I got to briefly meet this lovely woman when she arrived. I know she's a discriminating traveler, so I'm very pleased the Sky Terrace met her high expectations and hope all of our future guests are as charming as Katie!

The Sky Terrace is located in a QUIET neighborhood next door to Casa Pura Vida --the owners' first property- which was featured on an episode of the American TV show, House Hunters Internation (HGTV). See HomeAway listing 202857. Based on availability, the Sky Terrace can be rented together with Casa Pura Vida-- ideal for large get-togethers!

When you make a reservation at The Sky Terrace you will receive detailed information on how to travel from SDQ, (or other arrival cities) PLUS you will receive a comprehensive Rental Guide with suggestions for restaurants, nightclubs, where to go, best beaches,etc. Plus: our manager can help you rent a 'quad,' arrange snorkeling, diving or fishing expeditions, and tell you where to find the hottest 'nightclub de jour'!

About Las Terrenas: With over 15 miles of deserted, turquoise-water beaches, 'Time' magazine has described Las Terrenas as having one of the last, long stretches of undeveloped beach in the Caribbean.

The balmy climate with its ever-present trade winds and the warm temperature of the sub-tropical Atlantic Ocean combine to provide this part of the island with year-round, delightful weather with only a few degrees difference in temperature between winter and summer.

Las Terrenas has over 60 French, Italian, German and Dominican restaurants, two large, modern supermarkets, exciting night clubs (dancing on the beach!) and unique gift stores with quality handicrafts, clothing and jewelry. Snorkeling, diving, wind surfing and kite boarding are just steps away from The Sky Terrace. Go hiking, mountain biking, zip-lining, horseback riding on the beach or to the beautiful El Limon waterfall. Our property manager can arrange 'quad'rentals and excursions.

The French bakery (just a short walk from The Sky Terrace) is THE place to go for morning coffee and fresh pastries...you will feel like you're in Paris, but with perfect balmy weather!

Walk the never-ending beach and watch the colorful kiteboards or take lessons! Go diving, snorkeling, hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding on the beach. You can WALK from the Sky Terrace to these Las Terrenas disco and nightclubs:

*Mosquito Bar (Pueblo Pescadora) is a fun lounge and offers excellent margaritas.

*El Toro (Pueblo Pescadora) and MAMA (across from Police station) are great dance spots.

*La Bodega (in the first “mall” on the left from Sky Terrace) a large, Tipico-type bar with live music

About the Owners: Steve and Susan Miller fell in love with Las Terrenas when they first visited the Samana Peninsula to go whale-watching. The Millers live in Louisville, Kentucky, USA and purchased Casa Pura Vida as a vacation home and as a rental property for travelers looking for an alternative to cramped hotel rooms or impersonal all-inclusive resorts. The Sky Terrace was built in spring, 2012 as the owners' private retreat.

How to Travel to Las Terrenas: The easiest and cheapest way to reach Las Terrenas is to fly into El Catey airport (Canadian guests) or Santo Domingo--Los Americas Airport (SDQ), hire a rental car (Budget is approx. $240//week) and then make the easy and beautiful 2 hour drive up the brand new highway which starts just outside the airport and travels through palm plantations and rice paddies. If you fly into El Catey or El Portillo, our manager can pick you up for the same fee as a taxi ($80--$180 US) and he will stop for food or beverages on the way to the apartment!
