About the property

Ideal apartment for a relaxing stay on the seaside

We purchased this apartment in March 2014 when we were on holiday in Las Terrenas; we literally fell in love with the beach in Playa Bonita and with this small, secure residence surrounded by a beautiful garden on the seaside.

It is a quiet and relaxing location, free of car and motorcycle noise much like the other city centre beaches, 7 km from here.

The sea is simply breathtaking thanks to the coral reef protecting the shore; if you enjoy surfing or bodyboarding, you can visit the spots located only a few hundred metres away.

This 130 sq.m apartment has been refurbished in a chic Caribbean style and offers every comfort you could wish for on holiday.

Located on the 1st floor, it comprises a large living room, wide open onto the garden, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms.

Note that there are a few restaurants on Playa Bonita right next door to the residence, including the very good Alisei hotel restaurant. You can also self-cater in the apartment.

In order to find more restaurants, shops or even entertainment (bars, nightclubs), you can go to the Las Terrenas city centre, only 15 mn away by car or four wheeler.

If you don't have a vehicle, you can ride the famous motoconchos, privately owned motorcycle taxis on which 3 to 4 people can ride; you can easily find one day or night.

Lastly, your stay will be managed by a very professional French agency (key delivery, payment, help if need be, etc.)

About Delphine and Nicolas Caron-Desmarets

We travel every winter to relax in the sun. We discovered Las Terrenas (and of course Playa Bonita) by chance in February 2014 and we enjoyed its beauty and its quiet setting so much that we broke the bank to buy this apartment.

We had it completely refurbished and can rent it out to you when we don't inhabit it!

Why Delphine and Nicolas Caron-Desmarets chose Playa Bonita

The Playa Bonita beach, shielded in some places by a coral reef, is the perfect example of the Caribbean beach as we imagine it: crystal clear waters, fine sand, and coconut trees. It is beautiful and never crowded.

Playa Bonita and Coson really are the most peaceful and beautiful places around Las Terrenas. Furthermore they are only 15 mn from the city centre by car, four-wheeler or motoconcho; therefore you can easily go shopping or enjoy the entertainment.

Please note that some of the surrounding hotels include restaurants, such as the delicious Atlantis hotel restaurant, if you want to have lunch or dinner close by.

The residence is also very pleasant; small, it has a gorgeous garden and a seaside pool. A guard guarantees your tranquillity.

Exquisite peaceful beachfront beauty

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from two months in this lovely apartment that overlooks pool and striking gardens with a direct view of the sea, which lies steps away. The apartment is fully equipped, as described and I wanted for nothing during my time there. The fact that there is twice weekly maid service was a bonus, as I was not aware of that feature of my rental. The maids were through and efficient and couldn't have been nicer people. Karim Nassaf who is the representative of the French firm handling the rental, was helpful, courteous and speaks French, Spanish and English. The town is a bustling Latino pueblo with wonderful fresh fruit and vegetable markets, modern supermarkets, interesting restaurants and bars and shops of all kinds. While I did not visit the nearby notable waterfalls, I did decide to travel 45 minutes to Samana to go whale watching. The experience was fun, we saw lots of whales and it was reasonably priced. And restaurants on the beach, as recommended by the owners, were very satisfying. If you are looking for a quiet time in a beautiful surrounding with options for some fun activities and nightlife, I can't recommend this rental more highly.

Best stay ever

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Barahona, las Terrenas, las Galeras and Santo Domingo several times, and this appartment is absolutely our favorite in terms of its location (very long and beautiful beach plus downtown supermarket SuperPola), facilities (well-equipped and spacious appartment and family-friendly swimming pool) and great price-quality ratio. We would definitely love to stay more than 6 nights next time!!!

Que du bonheur !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de vacances merveilleuse dans cet appartement, quand nous sommes arrivés, nous avons eu l'effet "WAOUH" tant la pièce à vivre est jolie et tant la vue sur le jardin, la piscine et la mer est belle.

L'appartement est exactement comme sur les photos, tout est propre, beaucoup d'espace, confortable, on s'y est tout de suite bien senti.

Nous avions un peu peur de l'absence de climatisation pour un séjour fin aout, mais au final nous n'avons jamais eu trop chaud, nous avons juste utilisé le brasseur d'air la nuit, ce qui suffisait largement.

Sinon nous avons adoré la plage de Playa Bonita, qui est juste au bout du jardin, elle est très calme (pas de circulation à proximité) l'eau est translucide et chaude, un vrai bonheur.

Voilà, à peine rentrés, nous n'avons qu'une seule envie : y retourner !

Je vous recommande chaudement cette location, en plus on y est très bien accueilli.

Vacances superbes dans un endroit à tomber

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances dans cet appartement décoré avec beaucoup de goût, aéré et très propre.

Idéalement situé : la mer au bout du jardin, commerces non loin en voiture, 2 grandes plages magnifiques, un restaurant gastronomique succulent à 2 pas (hôtel Atlantis).

Les ados ont pu également faire du surf à l'école de surf situé près de la plage.

Avant notre départ, Delphine la propriétaire a répondu à nos questions ainsi que Celine qui s'occupe de l'appartement sur place.

Je conseillerai vivement cette location à ma famille ainsi qu'à mes amis.

Merci encore !

Appartement de rêve, tout confort

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances magnifiques en famille avec nos trois enfants dans un cadre exceptionnel. Très bel appartement tout à fait conforme aux photos vu sur le site. Grand, fonctionnel avec tout le confort qu'on peut attendre, et dans un lieu calme et sécurisé, une vue magnifique avec le bruit des vagues en fond, bien situé pas trop loin des commerces ou toute activité pour connaitre le pays et ces habitants.

Ça restera pour nous des vacances inoubliables.

Je remercie les propriétaires pour leurs conseils, disponibilités, gentillesse et rapidité de réponse à nos questions.

L'accueil sympathique sur place de l'agence, par Karim et Céline.

Right on Playa Bonita
Car: recommended

The main attraction while staying at Playa Bonita is of course the beach, its fine sand, crystal clear waters, coconut trees, and most of all the solitude!

You can just relax, go for a swim, fish... you can also walk along the few kilometres of Playa Bonita to the end of the Coson beach, or try surfing and bodyboarding in one of the nearby spots (there is one right next to the apartment, and another in Coson); you will find you have many different options to enjoy yourself here.

Otherwise, you can also go whale-watching from mid-January to mid-March in Samaná, an hour's drive away; it is definitely worth it.

The El Limon waterfalls and the islands of Cayo Levantado are also worth the trip.

And why not go and visit the colonial city of Santo Domingo before take-off!
