About Philippe

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

Why Philippe chose Las Terrenas

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...

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Spectacular

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Phil is simply spectacular. It's like being home but away and much better. From the design to the comfort and the service is above what we've seen before. We've been renting vacation homes for the past 4 years and it was the first time in Las Terrenas. The closest beach, playa las ballenas, was really near by, maybe 3-4 minutes walking, as the house is located on a small hill surrounded by tropical plants. Philippe the house owner is a very nice person and helped us a lot in suggesting places to visit, restaurants to go to, help us arrange our transports. We definitely recommend Casa Phil if you are looking for relax with your family and friends (we have kids, age 2, 5, 10). The house has many nice things for childrens and many areas that allow parents to leave them securely playing with the sandbox or playstation for example while you relax near the pool. When the kids were asleep at night we loved spending time on the pool terrace that has a wonderful bar, lounge chairs and colored lighting. We hope to be able to come back.

Excellente

  • 5 out of 5
The Casa Phil is not as described - it is even much better! A perfect place with a wonderful view. Modern design, very well kept by wonderful Andrea and Daniel who work here and are always there to help. Philippe is a great host, he welcomed us upon arrival;explained everything about his nice home and even organized a local cell phone for us. Philippe also helpt to organize some surf lessons with a friend of him - unfortunately the sea was perfectly calm; so we have to do this next time. The house is just a short walk away from a beautiful beach with some small bars/restaurants. We would nevertheless advise to either rent a car or an ATV to get into las Terrenss for shopping and to explore all the other nice areas and beaches of Samana. For the house - just look at the pictures in the description and be sure it is even better. Everything necessary was provided ( linen, towels...), and swimming in the pool with the view over palm trees, beach and sea is the perfect start for a good day.

We had a wonderful time, and recommend Casa Phil!

  • 5 out of 5
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.

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.
