About Michael Bidwell

We live in the United States and discovered Las Terrenas for ourselves in early 2012. I absolutely had to see LT for myself after reading this enchanting Caribbean Travel article . . . (http://www.caribbeantravelmag.com/articles/other-dominican-republic-las-terrenas).

A month or so later, we fell in love with LT almost the moment we crossed over the mountain range and saw the region's stunning natural beauty: miles and miles of pristine beaches, extremely lush palm forests and the deep blue Caribbean Sea. Incredible! Once in town, we were drawn to the cosmopolitan beach scene. TOP quality restaurants, french bakeries, cafes and countless beach bar options of all levels of sophistication. Also, it is great to have the option to take a bite out of a great nightlife scene on any given evening. Great discos (The Replay), Nightclubs (Gaia), Lounges (Mosquitos, One Love, Mojitos are just the start) and even the venerable Bodega promise much fun and memories!

After months of scouring and searching various places and locations with my outstanding realtor, it all came together perfectly when we saw Ventanas al Mar. The place is beautiful and the location could not be better.

I don't know why LT is still largely a secret in the US. I have a feeling with their new highway and international airport, LT and the surrounding Samana peninsula is poised to become a major vacation destination.

Michael Bidwell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michael Bidwell chose Las Terrenas

With this luxury condominium, you are getting the very best of the Las Terrenas experience!

The Home: It is new construction and of a very high quality. It has all the appointments to plug right in and take hold of the tremendous ocean views, cooling trade winds and lush tropical vegetation all around you. Unpack and you will be in full vacation / relaxation mode within the hour!

What makes this condo unique

Nearby Playas Bonitas, Coson, PortelloBeing able to walk to everything is a major benefit to your location. Restaurants, Nightclubs, Beach Bars, Spa and even boat excursions launching right from your beach isseveral others.

Nearby Amenities:

The New Fisherman's Village - The Hub of LT! It features over a dozen+ restaurants / clubs / cafes / lounges clustered together with beach-side dinning, and dancing a few hundred meters down the beach from Alisei.

Restaurants - Too many to name but easily over 25 featuring some of the best Italian, French, German, Swiss and local foods. (We have traveled throughout Europe and feel the dining experiences and atmosphere throughout LT are some of the best).

Affordability: The Dominican Republic represents an outstanding value for vacationers. We never felt anything was unreasonably priced, ever. Sometimes quite the opposite. It makes for a nice vacation when you feel you can splurge a little. One of the best indulgences we love is . . .

Vitality & Hospitality - The area boasts a tremendous mix of Italians, Germans, Swiss, French, Canadian and of course the great locals. Together it makes for a very vibrant, warm and welcoming area all along the beach scene.

Spa - Located 125 meters away in the incredibly beautiful Hotel Alisei.

Perfect Location In Las Terrenas

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at Ventanas al Mar while our home is being built nearby on Playa Bonita. This condominium is on the beach and only a short walk into all that is Las Terrenas. The owner and his property managers, Alma and Jesus are very knowledgeable about the area and are always willing to answers any questions. The beautiful grounds and pool area are maintained by a very caring and friendly staff. We will continue to recommended this condominium to anyone that wants to be on the beach and close to town.

BEST in Las Terrenas

  • 5 of 5
This condo is in the BEST location, has GREAT character, QUALITY furnishings and accessories and FINE service. We scoured the area while we were there and couldn't find one that we thought was better. After you arrive, park your rental car and get a scooter or 4-wheeler and live like a local. It was the best vacation we had in years!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
We went to Las Terrenas to try something other than the all inclusive resorts. We were pleased beyond expectation. The option of preparing our own meals or going out to eat was very appealing. Also, the view of the beach from the balcony is even better than the photos. Great place to stay. I will be returning next month.

We stayed at the appartment for 4 days and it was perfect! It is very convenient, spacious, very clean and well maintained with amazing terrace and views and right across from excellent beach. Mike and Alma (local mangaer) were extreamely helpful. Tip- ask Alma for taxi contact (spanish only), he was very efficient as well. The closest airport iz AZS and is very convenient. Enjoy!

What a pleasant surprise!

  • 5 of 5
We flew into Santo Domingo and drove cross-country to Las Terrenas. It was a beautiful, safe drive through cattle farms and rice fields, ending with some stunning scenes of the north coast. Las Terrenas is a delightful blend of third-world and European culture...vibrant and earthy with laid-back culture and an international flair. The beaches are incredible, the restaurants exciting, the countryside beautiful. This apartment is very nice...well-appointed, superb location and view, nicely landscaped, safe, great pool, and very well-managed by owner Mike, with local assistance from Jesus and Ernesto. You are not alone when visiting here, as there is ample support from them all! Plenty of activities: beaches, walking the town, restaurants, cafes, and laid-back beach bars, whale-watching Jan. through Apr., tours to the national park...oh, and did I mention the beaches??? Buy fresh seafood on the beach from the local fishermen, fruit from the woman who walks down the street every morning with the most delicious, fresh, ripe papayas or have some of the best pizza you have ever tasted, ceviche at a beachside restaurant, or fine dining with European flair. Fantastico!! This is so far from the insulated, "all-inclusive" resort culture. Here, you live and feel the pulse of the country and it's peoples. You will not be disappointed by this place!

Amazing vacation, great location

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this wonderful condo in Ventanas Al Mar was amazing. We spent 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year and didn’t want to leave. We would love to return again. We have rented through this service in the past and although we have always been satisfied, we had never felt the urge to write a review. This place deserves a review.

Right from the first communication, the owner, Mike was responsive and easy to communicate with. He offered great suggestions and things of interest for our vacation. The condo itself was beautiful and exactly as advertised and the location is one of the best in the area. It has a great view, just as shown in the pictures.

We were introduced by email to the property manager, Jesus, who was extremely helpful even before we arrived. He picked us up from the airport for a small fee and on route to the condo, gave us a tour of the town, showed us the grocery store, recommended several restaurants and introduced us to the car rental agency. Ernesto, the caretaker was friendly and very helpful as well.
We can highly recommend this condo to anyone looking to visit this area.

The Splendor of Las Terrenas & The Samaná Peninsula

A tiny ramshackle fishing village only 30 years ago, Las Terrenas has developed into one of the Dominican Republic’s most sought-after tourist centers. An influx of expatriates from North America and Europe has brought a wide array of guesthouses and restaurants, tailored to the independent traveler. But development has not ruined this welcoming seaside community’s relaxed atmosphere. Lying on the North Coast of the Samaná Peninsula, a lush strip of land pushing out into the Atlantic, the town is blessed by the proximity of some of the country’s most beautiful beaches and by spectacular countryside around. Extensive groves of coconut trees fringe expanses of white sand which slope gently and invitingly into clear warm water.

Top 10 Attractions

*

1. Playa Las Terrenas

Stretching a mile in either direction from the small town center, the attractive beach is clean and safe with ample shade. Heading westwards, Playa Cacao, close to small hotels and bars, is slightly more developed than the others.

*

2. Diving

Relatively unspoilt coral reefs lie close to Las Terrenas. Divers are attracted to nearby Playa Las Ballenas, where a group of small islands stand just offshore. There are many dive shops, such as Stellina Diving Center, and snorkel hire shops.

*

3. Beachside Restaurants

Spread along the beach either side of the main intersection are many top-rate but informal fish eateries. Fish with coconut is recommended. Early evenings are atmospheric with technicolor sunsets over the water.

Painted walls of a beachside restaurant

*

4. Haitian Art

Naïve Haitian art is widely available and is often mediocre and mass-produced. The Haitian Caraïbes Art Gallery has a good and reasonably-priced selection of wooden sculptures and voodoo-influenced images.

*

5. Shopping

For a small town, Las Terrenas offers a surprising range of shopping opportunities, from the small modern mall to outlets along the main street. Bargains can be had by bartering with stall-holders, especially near the beaches.

*

6. Nightlife

Las Terrenas is rightly celebrated for its busy but laid-back after-dark ambience, particularly at weekends when locals and tourists mingle at an open-air street fair or visit its many bars.

*

7. Playa Bonita

The immaculate “Beautiful Beach” is fringed by coconut trees, in which guesthouses are hidden. Less crowded than Las Terrenas, and ideal for kids.

*

8. Playa Cosón

This isolated curve of powdery white sand, limpid water, and palm groves looks every bit the idyllic image of the tourist brochures. A couple of fishermen’s shacks sell cold drinks and grilled fish to this beach’s few visitors.

9. El Portillo Beach Club

One of the largest all-inclusive resorts, complete with its own airport, this complex offers various sporting and entertainment options. Day visitors can admire its beautiful beach from the bar.
