Rent includes 3 days/wk (3 hours each) housekeeping. Can be hired for additional time and cooking. Rental of a quad/all terrain vehicle recommended to explore the area and for evening trips to town.

Sailing Club with Kayak, windsurf and buggieboard, sailboat and hobiecat rental.

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.

Wonderful Experience for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here and it was perfect for our family of 4; two adults and two teenagers. It was in a convenient location to the beach, town, shopping and restaurants. It was comfortable and had all the conveniences of home. The owners were great and prepared us for our trip by giving us a lot of information before our arrival with recommendations of things to do, places to eat, sites to see and guided us when we had questions.

Incredible escape!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week at the Villa Orquidea and fell in love with the home, the village, and the people of Las Terrenas.

It was incredible to have a beautiful kitchen to cook at home, and to dine overlooking the ocean. It is spacious enough have a large group of people. But we enjoyed having the entire house to ourselves. The location of the house allows for seclusion and privacy while being a short walk from the amazing beach, and the restaurants in town.

We also chose to have massages in the house each morning by Amada. What a perfect way to start the day!

We will definitely be returning soon to Las Terrenas and this unique home away from home.

Many thanks to Kristy for sharing this wonderful place with us.

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.

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.
