EXCLUSIVE YET IN TOUCH WITH LOCAL LIFE
Nestled in lush tropical gardens with a 105 foot swimming pool, directly fronting Playa Las Ballenas, known as one of the Dominican Republic’s finest beaches, at 50 yards, our penthouse offers a unique blend of seclusion, easy access to a wide array of leisure activities, and an authentic Caribbean way of life. Far from mass tourism hot spots such as Punta Cana or Cancun, Las Terrenas is still a fishing village, where foreigners and friendly locals mingle in everyday life. This melting pot of local and foreign influences is maybe best exemplified by the quality and creativity of Las Terrenas restaurants, which fuse French haute cuisine, traditional local recipes and fresh sea food ingredients. Make sure you enjoy some of the excellent restaurants in the Fisherman’s village (‘Pueblo de Los Pescadores’) about 1 mile away, on the sea front, some with French chefs. Not only will Las Terrenas offer you a comprehensive range of water sport activities, it also stands out as one of the last spots of unspoiled natural beauty in the Caribbean.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our stay at the penthouse was terrific. We did not take advantage of sailing club but everything was top notch. Your manager addressed an issue with the BBQ Grill quickly and after that all was serene. Alida and her crew were fabulous.
We are planning to return next year."
