If you are a star gazer, a writer or a poet you would feel very much at home here.
We are moving towards self sufficiency and Eco tourism. We already have pure spring water and we have solar panels and solar water heaters.
We will in the future add a variety of electric vehicles for guests.
If you have children then this is a natural wonderland providing constant amazement. Indeed, visits from the local children, who are a breath of fresh air, will aid your children in understanding this environment.
To top it off we have a trampoline which is very popular with children and uncontrollably happy adults alike.
We also grow many fruits and vegetables and indeed as I write this the wife has popped out to our herb garden for some coriander.
We hope to have created a much more personal and friendly feeling.
We have a great track record of content, repeat visitors. It seems that a return visit is a must, once you have been bitten by the magic and unadulterated beauty of our little oasis.
Also for a small additional fee we now offer breakfast (typically eggs, toast, seasonal fruits, juices, vegetable and cheese empanadas and coffee in our jungle communal area. Its a great chance to discuss your days activities and learn the best places to go. Just let us know beforehand.

About Dominic & Helena
We moved to Dominican Republic in 2008 in search of a better life. We found it! Arriving from London and speaking little Spanish, it has certainly been an interesting adventure, learning much in the 4 and half years living here. My wife and I met in London 11 years ago at a Brazilian Samba party. Our former professions being a far cry from our current life: myself an Accountant and Helena a Textile Designer. We are happily married with our two wonderful children Safiya and Zaidan, enjoying a very active lifestyle, living in our Caribbean paradise.
Dominic & Helena purchased this Bungalow in 2009
Why Dominic & Helena chose Las Terrenas
We chose this property and its location as a kind of dream that had been forming for many years before hand. The combined result of Helena's independent, free-spirited travels throughout latin America (prior to our meeting) plus years of vacationing in this particular part of Dominican Republic. The idea was to choose a place that would enhance our idea of a perfect lifestyle and attract like minded people. Our place embraces the culture, the people and the strong life force itself that is abundant here. We treat our guests as friends visiting and help them every step to experience the wonderful world we live in. In that it enables us to re-experience our wonderful place and the peninsular of Samana again and again through the wonder of other's eyes.
What makes this Bungalow unique
We pride ourselves on being personable and extremely helpful with our guests. Going over and beyond the norm in taking time both before booking and after arrival to ensure our guests have the vacation they've dreamed of. Having learned a lot through keeping a positive attitude and an open mind to how things are here, we are able to impart invaluable and first hand knowledge , that will hopefully leave our guests feeling like they have truly had an unforgettable, real experience of the Dominican Republic. Many people come to us curious as to what we have done, in daring to start a new life in a new country, culture etc... and often leave re-evaluating their own situations. We are fully integrated with the local people and we certainly don't separate ourselves from them which would defeat the whole point of visiting one of the most beautiful and happiest places in the world. If you are curious to have a better understanding of Why .... well, we have a pretty good idea and are more than happy to share this with you.

Jurassic Park is a magical place situated on a small hill, in a tranquil valley, overlooking the ocean and Las Terrenas. A short stroll behind us we have waterfalls with pools - which are extremely inviting, especially when its hot, great for cooling off and helping to make you feel at peace with the world. We have semi controlled jungle areas which makes our place unique, we continue to improve and make them a part of the attraction of being here. There is very little light pollution (no upward facing lights), so you can view the night sky, from our open pool terrace, which are mostly spectacular all year round. If you have children then this is a natural wonderland providing culture and amazement. We are close to some of the best beaches in the area like Playa Bonita and Playa Coson. To top it off we have a trampoline, a horse and many outdoor vehicles which are all very popular with children and uncontrollably happy adults alike.
