Overview

Dominican Republic North Coast Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, sleeps 8

Our Twin Villas are a tropical dream, perfect for groups of friends or families wanting to share accommodation yet wishing to keep their own privacy. 2 cozy and charming villas, each 90 sq. meters, in the greenest tropical surroundings just behind the most beautiful beach of Las Terrenas. Set in 1200 sq meters of lush tropical gardens our Twin Villas share their own private sun deck with the pool spectacularly placed just outside your livingroom.

The price is for the entire property.

These fantastic property was created and designed to the highest standards of tropical living. Conceived in order to integrate with the tropical environment, this special place will make you feel its unique relaxing atmosphere from the very first moment you step in it.

Only 350 yards from Las Ballenas beach, the most beautiful beach in Las Terrenas. Enjoy total privacy amidst the sound of birds, the lush vegetation and your own coconut palm trees

Beaches: Beaches in Las Terrenas 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 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 closest beach is Las Ballenas Beach, just 320 meters walk from this property. This is a beautiful bay with everything you wish to have, a sandy shore, crystal clear turquoise water, a great french owned restaurant where to have lunch, big coconut palm trees, inspiring sunsets, a barrier reef a short swim away and a lot of calm.

Beaches are never crowded and there are so many of them along the coast that you can always find a beautiful spot for yourself. Nothing but you, sea, sand and palms, and a few local fishermen passing by from time to time.

Restaurants & Night Life: 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 merengue clubs where locals and tourists dance together the tropical rhythms under the moonlight!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jose, we are back from our trip to the Dominican and had a great time.

The villas were just wonderful and we felt well cared for with the security, Bony, etc. The local agent was very accommodating and gave us some great recommendations. All in all, we had a great time and thank you very much for everything!!

Unique and very tropcial

  • 4 of 5

It was most private and very well manicured. The pool was crystal clear. The staff were also most accomodating. It made our first trip to Las Terrenas most memorable. The air conditioned bedrooms made for great sleeping. The fully equipped kitchens made meal preparation so easy, after shopping at the Super Pola grocery....which had everything. We even got charcoal and used the nice built in grill by the pool. So glad we found this place.

  • 5 of 5

I was at passion tropical 2 with my family and I have to said that it was excellent very clean and we'll prepared, my kids had a great time, it was very fun, if you are looking for a private villa this is the one.

I would recommend it to any family that like to enjoy to spend time together, don't forget to go to the beach it was amazing.

I will keep the contact and visit this paradise every time I go to DR.

Beautiful spot, well managed

  • 5 of 5

lovely place. The staff is responsive to all issues (of which there were few). It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach but we found the pool so nice and the houses so welcoming that there wasn't much temptation to go to the local beach, which has limited swim area because of the reef. las Terrenas is idyllic. Perfect for anyone wanting to get FAR away from hustle and bustle and Passion Tropicale 2 is great. don't forget, it is the tropics... Mosquitos are an issue after dusk but the houses are prepared and there are other bugs to contend with but that is the nature of the area.

Eigentlich sehr schön, aber....

  • 3 of 5

Die beiden Villen waren an sich schon klasse, trotzdem war der Aufenthalt nur eingeschränkt schön, weil

1. die Moskitonetze über den Betten hatten Löcher, die Mücken hatten also freie Bahn

2. direkt neben dem Schlafraum der ersten Villa steht die Umwälzpumpe für den Pool, diese verursachte nachts solchen Lärm, daß an schlafen nicht zu denken war

3. Während der einen Woche wurde nur 2mal geputzt, Handtuchwechsel war ebenso wenig selbstverständlich wie das Nachlegen von Toilettenpapier

4.der Weg zum nächsten Supermarkt ist ca. 2 km, so etwas sollte man vorher erfahren, denn ohne Fahrzeug ist man aufgeschmissen

Owner's Response: I am glad to know that overall this guest had a positive experiene at our property despite the minor dissapointments. I have a full time emplyee taking care of both our properties in the area. He takes care of the cleaning of the houses, the pools and the gardens and when there are clients occupaying the properties he tries his best to be as available and helpful as possible. My advise to future guests is to make present early any issue you may have to the staff or to the local agent as they will try, as soon as it's possible, to resolve any issue. In this case it is a pity that a hole in one of the mosquito nets or a possible error on the settings of the pool filter's timer had had to be a disturbance for these clients during their holidays. Unfortunately, there was also a severe misunderstanding between these clients and our staff with the consequence that our staff would only dare clean the houses in the presence of the clients, reason why the cleaning was carried out only 4 days of the week instead of the 5 days included in the rental rate. The distance from our property to town and supermarkets is correctly indicated on the property profile and mentioned again on the first information letter I send when receiving a request. In Las Terrenas you need to choose whether to be close to the beach or to be close to the supermartket as it is geographically impossible to have both near. I want to reasure any future guest that our aim is to provide an accommodation that is satisfaying and suitable above the average standards in Las Terrenas so our clients can enjoy carefree of our beautiful Samana Peninsula.

Perfect villas for a small group!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples in our group, these villas were perfect for us. We stayed 7 days and enjoyed every minute. We rented 4- wheelers and was able to navigate easily to stores, beaches, exploring and to Mt Limon. A guard is there at night and caretaker in the day. I would definitely stay here again! Beaches are great, food is awesome. Recommend El Pescador restaurant, Eric the owner speaks English and the food is excellent. We had no problems communicating with locals even though we all spoke very little Spanish. Take some mosquito repellant, they can get a little bothersome at night. I give these villas 5 stars, exactly as shown, highly recommend!!

Las Terrenas is far from being a multi million mass tourism resort area as its counterparts Punta Cana, La Romana or Puerto Plata. 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.

Las Terrenas 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 them.

This property is located left of las Terrenas, 320 mts walk from the beautifully reckoned Las Ballenas beach.

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.

Other Activities: kite surfing
