Las Terrenas Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 4. Best for 1 couple or small family
El Palomar is nestled in beautiful tropical gardens only a very short 2 minute walk to beautiful beaches, a 10 minute walk from great beach restaurants and a 15-20 minutes walk from town. Originally it was built as a guest house for our larger house La Paloma but we have chosen it as our favorite retreat while in Las Terrenas. It is charming, colorful and simply furnished. It was designed using typical Caribbean materials, cana roof and colorful painted wood siding and partitioning walls, a quaint retreat for the young at heart. Our houses are private from one another but are connected by lush garden paths. Before you arrive we are happy to stock your refrigerator with breakfast items if you wish.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We have vacationed extensively in the Caribbean so it came as surprise that we would be so taken by this experience. Having long ago given up on boring all inclusive resorts, we now look for places where we can experience the local culture. El Palomar provided just that opportunity. We stayed at this lovely villa in Las Terrenas,Samana this last November and can not say enough good things about the facilities and our hosts, Leslie and Bill! Everything was pretty perfect!
Traveling by car around Samana was a real treat. Beautiful scenery..gorgeous beaches ..and the people were great ( we don't speak Spanish).. We frequented Luis restaurant/Coson beach (5 minute drive from town) Very beautiful beach..free beach chairs..bar/restaurant..with arguably some of the best food in the area..Not touristy either.
Went to the local fruit/vegetable stands and grocery store and cooked some incredible food using local ingredients.. The kitchen was very functional..
Definitely a vacation we will repeat soon.
We first started traveling to Las Terrenas in 1982 when it was an authentic fishing village. After more trips we purchased our first property and then the land next door where we had El Palomar built from our own design by a trusted Dominican builder. Over the years we have enjoyed painting and decorating it so that it has the charm of a country Dominican house.
We bought this property because of its wonderful location, only 2 minutes from the beach and a lovely 10 minute stroll along the beach to good restaurants, A twenty minute walk will take you to the center of town.
Our property is not for everyone. It is for the 'young at heart' and those who want to experience a casual colorful ambiance. The cottage has a cana roof, some walls are brightly painted wood (split palm) and some are stucco, the floors are pigmented cement. The veranda is large and open, surrounded by tropical gardens which are great for bird watching and sunbathing.
