Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Las Terrenas - Casa Phil

Casa Phil is an architecturally designed villa that was built with the objective of creating a large and beautifully appointed home that is both family-friendly and secured for small children.

The house has been designed using the modern appeal of concrete painted white and left natural. This is enhanced with polished concrete floors that are mixed with the beauty of natural stone floors.

Combine this with the clever use of toughened safety glass, stainless steel fittings, oak wood doors, high quality European fixtures and fittings and both contemporary and antique furniture, enables the presentation of a house of outstanding quality and value.

The house is situated in Las Terrenas in the prestige’s area of Loma Bonita, the road is a private none through road with 24 hour security and manned entry gate, it is fondly called “millionaires” row.

The house has stunning unobstructed views of the ocean and surrounding bay with some of the most beautiful beaches and turquoise waters in the caribbean within a 3 minute walk, with the restaurants, shops and bars of las terrenas being a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes by car along a stunning beach front road fringed with palm trees.

I'm born and grew up in Italy. I lived in many countries, from Varese in Italy to New York, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona and finally now in Las Terrenas. I'm an environmental engineer graduated from NYU Polytechnic University in NYC and the University of Pavia in Italy. My passions: my son, dune buggies (that I build, sell and rent: contact me if you wish to have one during your stay) and surfing.

Philippe purchased this villa in 2011

If you've never been to Las Terrenas before it might be difficult to explain this but this town is a unique place on earth, where sometimes time seems to stop and all the issues that make your daily life dissipate and to start living in harmony with nature and the elements surrounding you. I discovered Las Terrenas thanks to my mom in 2003 and then during a vacation here I had the opportunity to purchase a plot of land and this is how the story began...

Casa Phil is a dream house. It was built with care, love and sacrifice. We built it for our family and hence looked and though of all details during the planning and building process.

The house is just as described and photographed. It is clean, airy, well appointed, just great. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay great. We were happy to have a car for shopping, going to restaurants at a bit more distance etc. There are two great beaches in easy walking distance. The town of Las Terenas is about a fifteen minute walk along the beach and oceanfront. Las Terenas is full of restaurants and shops, Philipe, the owner, was a gracious host, and helped us with any questions we had.

We will certainly be back, and recommend Casa Phil to anyone visiting the Dominican Republic.

We spent the week of New Year's 2013/14 enjoying Casa Phil. The house is exactly as described, and the photos accurately reflect Philippe's beautiful home. The home is closely located to the beach, actually a 5 minute walk. We enjoyed running on the beach daily, as the beach extended for many miles. On this beach, there are a lot of restaurants and bars which we enjoyed as well.

Philippe is a very gracious host. He was extremely helpful in arranging all of our transportation needs, from taxis to and from the airport, to renting dune buggies (which he builds himself), and a quad. He was always checking in on us as well, making sure that everything was ok, and whether or not we needed anything. We can't thank Philippe enough for making our vacation so memorable.

We highly recommend Casa Phil to anyone interested in a vacation in Las Terrenas, DR.

About las terrenas

Anywhere you look, one beach is more beautiful than the next one. Playa cosón heads up the list with its turquoise, pristine waters and its three miles of white sand shore. You can actually walk along the sea from the end of playa cosón to playa la bonita (which literally means the beautiful beach,) then playa escondida; cross the hill and you are in playa las ballenas (just nearby Casa Phil), playa punta popi and playa portillo. Over ten miles of a continuous incredible paradise ready for you to discover.

Watch the whale!

Whale watching in the bay of samaná will be one of the highlights of your visit. Between the months of january to march, humpback whales come from distant oceans to the waters of samaná to perform their courting songs and impress us with fascinating shows of flippering and jumping. These whales have chosen our area to mate and come back every year with their newborns and male companions to start anew their cycle of life.

Excursions and day trips

Whether on a horse, on an atv, by car or on a boat, there are wonderful excursions and day trips you can enjoy in the area. From el salto de el limón - el limón falls, fishing trips, snorkeling and scuba diving, or just a walking tour of las terrenas, your days can be filled with activity and emotions. Zip-lining and eco tours through this wonderful tropical forests are an incomparable adventure and a total must. My dear friend Francis is the captain of the 45ft catamaran named 'Califa' and you may contact him for a day trip in the Samana bay to the beautiful 'Cayo Levantado' island (my favorite hang out for snorkeling) or to the 'Haites' national park.

Fine dining and wining in las terrrenas

If you just want to sit back and and enjoy fine drinking and dining, las terrenas and samaná offer you a wide range of international restaurants. From mexican fajitas to an ukranian borscht to a french ratatouille, the cosmopolitan flavor of this town is reflected not only in its population but also in its cuisine. A café au lait and a croissant for breakfast, a cuban sandwich and a mojito for lunch and a paella for dinner is not an unthinkable menu in your culinary journey of las terrenas and samaná. Our favorite hangouts in town (and defenitely 'must do' during your stay) are the 'spoon beach restaurant bar' just 1 minute walk for casa phil owned by willy a cooking gem in town, 'le tre caravelle' owned by the friendly simone for a refined italian fish based dinner (don't leave without trying the risotto tre caravelle), 'la serviette' if you crave for modern french caribbean cuisine, 'la salsa' in the 'fisherman's village with the best price/quality 200 pesos mid day menu.

Sports events and sport tours

Nothing prevents you from continuing practicing your favorite sports and keeping in shape while vacationing in las terrenas or samaná. You can even participate in a 10k road race, a cross country run, a mountain bike competition, sailing, going to a gym, swimming, kite surfing and surfing in our beaches. There are annual events such as las terrenas 10k and the cross country @ playa morón which are internationally accredited athletic events which promote our area as a main sport tourism destination in the dominican republic. If you are into surfing or have always wanted to try it, here is you chance, visit 'nalu surfshop' owned by my friend and surf instructor william.

Nightlife in las terrenas

Certainly, one of the most popular social activities for entertainment in las terrenas, dancing and 'clubbing' is a favorite for both national and international tourists visiting the area. Our 'fisherman's village' is a popular spot concentrating most of the discos and bars in las terrenas, but it is not the only area where to have fun. Nightlife is vibrant in this town offering a new world for the visitors to discover. My favorite's hangouts in the 'fisherman's village' are the replay with Nicholas and Enzo for a mix of contemporary and latin music often animated by one of the local dance schools (to practice your bachata and salsa moves), gaia disco owned by sergio our neighbour on loma bonita.
