Akwaba is a beautiful modern villa (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms-look at the photos for details), perched at the top of the Lomita Maravilla hill, in the centre of Las Terrenas. It offers an amazing 180 ° view of the blue Caribbean Sea and the horizon from East to West as well as the village below as well and the coast!
From the pool deck in the large terrace, you can see the sunrise and the sunset, as well as the permanent show that is the view all day long…The sea with its boats, the wings of the kites, the changes of shades in the water, the change of the appearance from smooth as a mirror to woolly when the winds blow…in the sky you will see the beautiful white clouds and incredible reliefs, you can also see the flight of the beautiful birds which I believe are a species of raptors, taking the advantage of the breeze to rise and give its viewers a lesson on how to fly!...and you will hear the breeze and the pleasant murmur of the village below you.
Just above the city centre, this is a 220m2 villa with a 400m2 garden and a 180m2 deck with a pool.
Personally, I feel as if I were at the deck of a boat, like a cruise! This is a one-storey villa with three bedrooms (queen or king size) and two bathrooms. The master bedroom occupies the first floor with its own bathroom (toilet included), dressing area, 30m2 terrace with views of the sea and the horizon as well as the sunrise to the east if you like waking up early.
The other two bedrooms are on the ground floor, each with a bay window that allows direct access to the pool deck. They also have sea views. The dining room, lounge and kitchen also have direct access to the pool and the deck, as well as a view of the blue sea and the horizon.
All the rooms on the ground floor have windows that provide plenty of natural light and give you the opportunity to experience an “open” environment with direct access to the pool and the deck.
