Overview

Dominican Republic North Coast Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 1 large living room, 1 kitchen and one large terrace

Villa Pasion Tropical is everybody's tropical dream: a luxurious 270 sq. mts. villa in the greenest tropical surroundings just behind the most beautiful beach of Las Terrenas. Set in 1100 sq mts. of lush beautifully landscaped tropical gardens with its own private sun deck and swimming pool both spectacularly placed just outside your living room. Our villa is made up of a large living room, a kitchen, 4 bedrooms (2 king size & 2 queen size bed) 4 very spacious bathrooms

This special place will make you feel its unique relaxing atmosphere from the very first moment you step in it. The decoration of the villa and the garden were thought in order to create a perfect fusion between high standard modern living and the tropical, ethnic, cosy and calm environment typical of the Caribbean Islands.

Beach Details: These are definitely amongst the best in the country. They unfold in an endless succession of rounded small, medium and big size bays; each of them offers its own special and different charm. They all have in common huge forests of beautiful and tall coconut palms on the back – this is the highest concentration of coconut trees in the world!- so thick and green that if you look at the shore from the clear turquoise water you won’t even realize there is any tourist activity behind them.

The water on most beaches is always calm as they are protected by barrier reefs. Coral reefs are close enough to the coast that they can be reached by simply snorkeling from the beach in a few minutes swim in the crystal clear waters! The color of the water is exceptional, with its varieties of shades of blue and turquoise displaying themselves from the shore into the deeper sea.Beaches are never crowded and there are so many of them along the coast that you can always find a beautiful spot for you

Restaurants & Nightlife Details: Although small, Las Terrenas has a surprisingly wide variety of trendy restaurants and bars where to spend the evening hours. Located mainly directly on the beach, with terraces overlooking the sea just a few steps away, the restaurants offer everywhere surprisingly high quality creative dishes with chefs that have moved here from all over Europe. The large influence of French and Italian cuisine fuses here with the tradition of local food and fresh sea food ingredients. You can also find nice cocktail bars of tasteful design set on the beach or under the palm trees as well as more traditional salsa and meringue clubs where locals and tourists dance together the tropical rhythms under the moonlight !

Excursions & Getting Around: The Samana Peninsula is a natural jewel and it has a lot to offer in terms of excursions and adventure. Apart from literally being able of going to a different beach every day there is a whole variety of places that you will have the chance to visit while you are here. The famous waterfall El Limon is a national celebrity and is only a few kilometers away from Las Terrenas. From January to March thousands of humpback whales gather in the Samana bay from all the north Atlantic for reproduction and they can easily be seen in their natural habitat from one of the authorized boats visiting their sanctuary. Playa Grande, a five kilometers spectacular white beach, is a couple of hours drive from Las Terrenas and the surfers´ town of Cabaret just a few more minutes away from it. Playa Rincon, with its unparalled water colours, can be reached with a short but unforgettable boat ride from the village of Las Galeras, one hour drive from Las Terrenas. Horse riding on the beaches is also available

About Jose Manuel Mendoza

I was born and raised in Venezuela. Lived in California for a year as an exchange student before going to University. Studied Economics both in Venezuela and in the UK and have been living and working with my spouse in Europe for about ten years in pour businesses. We spend 4 months of the year in Las Terrenas during the winter, from where we work and take care of our properties there.

Jose Manuel Mendoza purchased this villa in 2006

Why Jose Manuel Mendoza chose Dominican Republic North Coast

When we first came to Las Terrenas in 2005 we fell in loved with the combination of beautiful nature, original feeling of town and the surrounding area, the great dinning, the availability of services and the mild and friendly nature of the inhabitants. We decided to purchase a lot of land near the beach we liked the most and built our corner of tropical paradise. We found here a great mix of qualities that we have seen scattered over the years in our travels in many places and we couldn't just pass on the opportunity to set foot on the one place we have found to have it all.

What makes this villa unique

The best quality of this villa is to allow you to live outside. It has this wide doors that open the big living room to the even bigger cane roofed terrace and for the day and even the nights you can enjoy this huge open and ventilated space where you can lay on the hammocks, lounge under the sun, bathe in the pool, eat, write, read, play, sleep, talk, listen to music or dance overlooking the beautiful tropical garden that we have put so much of ourselves into making it what it is.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Las Terrenas, your house is beautiful and very tastefully done, a lot of attention on decorative detail to coordinate and your property caretaker was so nice and helpful. Great place.

Thanks again

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect for our group of 3 kids and two adults. We were minutes on foot from a beautiful beech and spent a lot of time using the pool. The house was cleaned every day and we had a woman they recommended cook our meals which were delicious. There are a lot of activities in the Las Terrenas area (zip lining, waterfall, fishing, etc). Highly recommend this as a place to enjoy a vacation.

Beautiful house and surrounding

  • 5 of 5

The house is really just as stunning an delightful as it is pictured in the photos, and the tasteful decoration and details gives you that tropical island feeling that you are looking for in the Caribean .Bony, the housekeeper, was very helpful, nice and discreet, Beatrice, the manager, always quick to respond for any little problem arising and everybody else tried its best to make our stay as agreable and peaceful as possible. I just have one small suggestion: there was only one key and we were a family of 3 couples with kids, each having sometimes their own program, so it would have been easier with more keys available.I would definitely recommend this property to friends, and I already have, as a matter of fact. We went on a very exciting whalewatching tour and enjoyed the horseriding trip to Salto el Limon. All in all, one of our loveliest family vacation.

The property was BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very early in the morning (about 3:30 am) with our family of 8. The home was beautifully lit up.....it was quite a sight after our long journey. Bony was there to greet us along with the security guards who all helped us get all of our luggage into the home and situated. We stayed for two weeks so we had a chance to really see the town, beaches and surrounding attractions.

We loved being at the house. It felt comfortable and peaceful. Bony was available to us every morning to answer questions, call taxi's, he cleaned daily and even did laundry for us!! He was amazing! He maintains the yard as well which is equally as beautiful!

Our stay proved to be quite an adventure in many ways but all in all we enjoyed the property and the excitement very much!

The owner and Property managers were very easy to work with and very helpful as well!

If you are looking for a real adventurous vacation and don't like the commercial- all inclusive kinds of places, this is your place:) Speaking Spanish is very important....rent quads it was so much fun! Spend lots and lots of time at Playa Bonita.....a gorgeous beach! Make friends with the locals...they are awesome!

The only hard thing for us were the mosquitos. Some of our family did fine with just using one of the many things I brought with me to keep mosquitoes away but a few of us got bit a lot. Be careful of the water. While the house has hook ups for bottled water you still need to be careful about washing dishes or cooking in un-bottled water which I suspect happened at some restaurants we ate at. This I know is common sense and shouldn't be a deterrent just a little reminder.

Enjoy this little piece of paradise!!

Awesome Place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days and had a great time. This is a great place to relax. The location is PERFECT. 5 minutes walk to the beach, bars, and restaurants.

Bony made our stay even more enjoyable. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed.

The only complaint we have is that the food was not what we expected. We had a great experience overall but the food could be better.

Our Own Private Sanctuary

  • 4 of 5

We were three couples staying at Villa Pasion Tropical for 10 days. The property lived up to the photos and description in every way. It is tastefully designed, set in a very private and quiet location yet still very convenient for walking to the beach or even to town, which we did several times for dinner. Bea, the property manager was immediately responsive to our every question or request. Some of our best memories were evenings we stayed home and ate dinners al fresco by the pool, cooked by the wonderful chef Daniel. Bea arranged for a very capable driver to transport us to and from the airport as well as for several daytime excursions. The villa was a wonderful retreat at the end of all our days in Las Terranas.

This villa had the best spa!

  • 5 of 5

A tropical villa we will

definitely recommend to everyone! The location, views

and amenities were all restorative. My favorite was the

little spa cottage by the pool. One of the most beautiful

beaches in the world is hidden in this tropical island, so

close we just walked to it. Trail of restaurants and bars

were along the beach so we dint have any problem

finding them. Gone to the famous waterfall El Limon which

was only a few kilometers away from the villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Heather for your review. We really appreciate it. Just to clarify to future guests, the Spa referred to in the review is the area surrounding the pool with Its deck and its Bali style day bed for chilling and reading under the shade in the open air. Best regards, Jose

The Dominican Republic is famous for its exceptional natural beauty and for the friendliness and warmth of its beautiful people. The Samana peninsula, in its turn, is famous within the Dominican Republic for being one of the most beautiful, varied and still unspoiled regions the country has to offer to the visitors. These characteristics have only recently attracted new tourism to the area and this has allowed it to grow fast but in a very discreet manner while mantaining a balance with the environment and the local culture and life.

Las Terrenas is far from being a multi million mass tourism resort area. It is still a small ex-fishermen village, where foreigners and locals meet and mix in everyday life and where you can still taste the real Caribbean way of life. It has developed offering a wide array of small hotels, villas, small residential complexes, restaurants, shops and water sports centers, all settled along many of its beautiful beaches or just a few minutes walk behind

Other Activities: Kite surfing
