LUXURIOUS SPECTACULAR BEACHFRONT ROOFTOP PENTHOUSE: A CARIBBEAN DREAM

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Las Terrenas - Playa Las Ballenas Penthouse

3 bedrooms & bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 8 (+baby bed & queensize sofa)

Nestled in lush gardens with a 105ft pool, directly facing one of the country's finest beaches at 50yds, our penthouse offers a unique blend of seclusion, easy access to a wide range of activities, and an authentic Caribbean way of life next to a friendly fishermen village. The area also stands out as one of the Caribbeans last spots of unspoiled natural beauty.

Our penthouse is perfect for a romantic retreat or for friends/families wishing to spend time together yet welcoming some privacy. Its 2,800 sq ft interior space is cozy and elegantly decorated with exotic wood. It is flanked by 2 terraces of 890 and 750 sq ft, each enjoying the same gorgeous view of the garden &ocean, the east one with a beautiful 5 room jacuzzi with seaview. You will appreciate the absolute privacy. 2 of the 3 bedrooms (king size bed) open onto the terrace for enhanced intimacy. All expected amenities are provided: luggage elevator, fully equipped kitchen etc.. You will treasure the peacefulness of our residence while enjoying hotel-like services: very good restaurant, 24/7 surveillance, daily cleaning (3 hours per day), pool and garden maintenance etc. Should you wish to free yourself even more from everyday duties, we selected competent and reliable personnel for you who will take care of grocery shopping, cooking (good cook or real chef including table service) babysitting etc. at very affordable rates.

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.

TOGETHER TIME YET PRIVATE SPACES

Our penthouse is perfect for a couple in search of a romantic retreat or for friends/families wishing to spend time together yet welcoming some privacy.

Its 2,800 sq ft of interior space, exotic wood floors and high ceilings, and high-end colonial furniture will make you feel very cozy. The apartment situated on the 3rd and top floor is flanked by two separate terraces measuring 890 and 750 sq ft, each enjoying the same gorgeous view on the tropical garden, swimming pool and ocean. Each terrace has both a porch and an open space to accommodate your wishes for sun or shade. The east terrace has a seaview jaccuzi with 5 rooms including a lying one. You will enjoy their absolute privacy: no peeking neighbor!

Each of the three bedrooms is individually decorated, with king size bed as well as ensuite bathroom. Two of them open onto the terrace for enhanced intimacy.

Our penthouse includes all amenities one can expect from such high-end accommodation: a private elevator for luggage, a vast modern gourmet kitchen with Center Island that is fully equipped (including 2 ovens, dish-washer, microwave, American-style refrigerator, water cooler, wine cellar, etc.), a Viking professional BBQ, air conditioning, LCD cable TV with DVD player, WIFI, HIFI with MP3/CD/Radio/Ipod station, safe, laundry room etc.

PRIVACY YET COMFORT AND SAFETY

This exclusive property combines the best of both worlds: you will treasure the privacy of a quiet and small residence while enjoying services usually associated with hotels – gated entrance and 24/7 surveillance, daily cleaning, gardening and pool maintenance, tennis, very nice restaurant. Should you wish to free yourself even more from everyday duties, we selected competent and reliable personnel for you who will take care of grocery shopping, cooking, babysitting etc. you can hire on demand for $ US 4 an hour.

The residence was designed to preserve the essence of the area by respecting the lakes and green areas in order to offer each resident his own special place. You will find a salt river running through the garden down to the sea.

Excellent!

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful apartment in gated community near the beach. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The beach area close to the condo is quiet and beautiful. There is a nice small restaurant that provides beach-side service and lots of first class restaurants further down the beach. The setting was perfect for us---relatively quiet area, about 1 minute on foot to the beach. I cant wait to go back. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend this property.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved the condo! Our driver picked us up at the airport and brought us to the condo, then brought us to get pizza and refreshments at 10:00pm. Our housekeeper was amazing, she took good care of us and cooked us two fabulous meals. You can't beat the view, and the location. We would definitely recommend this location!

Las Terrenas Penthouse

  • 5 out of 5
In early February we rented the penthouse to call home while on vacation in Las Terrenas. This proved a better decision than expected. The facility was spacious, comfortable, and nicely appointed; the gated complex was well kept with security around the clock. Our housekeeper was wonderful and wiling to cook if we wished. The kitchen was large enough for several cooks and well thought out. The partially covered terraces on either side of the unit great for appreciation of the breezes, dining alfresco, game playing, or sun bathing. The setting itself was also ideal. The ocean and beach accessible by a paved path, the saltwater pool another option for swimming. When inside it was easy to forget there were other units in the complex; one felt surrounded by the nature of the area and we particularly enjoyed watching the land crabs scurry in and out of their unique abodes. Although we enjoyed the quiet relaxed atmosphere of the penthouse location, we believed we were close enough to town and rented ATVs, which we would recommend in favor of a car, for our rides back and forth. We would rent this unit again.

Breathtakingly Beautiful!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I picked this property to enjoy our honeymoon. Wow! The pictures do not do it justice. The full immersion experience with the ocean waves breaking in the distance, slight breezes kissing your skin no matter where you are within the home, and the breathtaking views throughout are memorable and therapeutically relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed the open feel of the home, the beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, the modern kitchen, the hot tub, and evenings on the patio with wine and cheese. The on-site restuarant was a surprise, Sooooo good and amazingly affordable. Days were spent exploring Las Terrrenas and other areas of the island when we felt adventurous and if not, we took a short stroll to the beach and relaxed in loungers while a beachfront bar and restaurant right outside the property brough us ice-cold drinks. Elliot, thank you so much for sharing this amazing home with us. Michel displayed the utmost pride and professionalism with his expertese and expeditious responses to all my inquiries.Thank you as well!

We had a wonderful family vacation!

  • 4 out of 5
Beautiful view! Gorgeous beach! Pretty condo. Very well done. Short drive into Las Terrenas where there are lots of wonderful restaurants! We experienced a bit of a language barrier as we only speak english and most in the area speak spanish or french. Fortunately our older daughter speaks some french so we muddled through. The condo was pretty clean but is showing some signs of wear/usage. The laundry facilities were poor. Upon our arrival, not everything was working but the property managers did their best to fix everything promptly. Rave reviews for Miss Alice our concierge!! She arranged for all of our groceries to be in fridge and waiting for us when we arrived. She also arranged and helped prepare 2 delicious 3 course meals for us! They were spectacular!!
Lots of fun excursions to choose from! We enjoyed a visit to El Limon waterfall and an all day catamaran ride with snorkeling & a visit to Bacardi Island(also gorgeous)!! Would recommend!!

LOCATION

The penthouse is tucked away in a secluded cove on the Playa Las Bellenas, one of the finest beaches of the country, minutes away from the fisherman’s village (1.5km) and from Las Terrenas (2km). It is in a confidential residence with lush topical gardens and a 105 foot swimming pool.

Taxi service can be organized from El Catay airport (18 miles away, 25 minutes) or Las Americas airport - Santo Domingo airport (95 miles, less than 2h, 180 USD) using the brand new and scenic highway. On site, a car or quad or bike or motorbike is not necessary but can be useful in case you would like to discover the region, for grocery shopping, to go to restaurants - we can help arrange their booking.

AN AUTHENTIC CARIBBEAN WAY OF LIFE

Far from mass tourism hot spots such as Punta Cana or Cancun, Las Terrenas is a village (11,000 residents) on the Samana Peninsula in the Dominican Republic nestled between Los Haitises mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean.

It is a small fishing village with an international flare. Along with the Dominicans, thousands of French, Italian, German, Canadian and American residents call Las Terrenas home. More often than not, they come on vacation and stay for life. It creates a friendly atmosphere where friendly locals, expatriates and tourists 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, fusing French haute cuisine, traditional local recipes and fresh sea food. Make sure you enjoy some of the very good restaurants in the Fisherman’s village (‘Pueblo de Los Pescadores’) about 1 mile away, on the sea front, some with French chefs.

A WIDE RANGE OF LEISURE ACTIVITIES

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. Come and explore the islets, mangroves and caves in Los Haitises National Park, observe the humpback whales in their calving grounds, hike or go by 4 x 4 quad – or horse back to El Limon waterfalls, take a ride on quad along the ‘route du café’ (coffee trail) , hike or horse ride through the subtropical mountain forests of Samana Peninsula!

Here is a list of just some of the leisure activities available (apart from enjoying the tropical garden, the swimming pool and Playa Las Ballenas of course!):

•Beachcombing: the area has the most beautiful beaches in all of the Dominican Republic. These magnificent and quiet beaches, all public, stretch over 11 miles so you can actually walk for miles. Don’t miss Playa Bonita, Playa Moron, El Coson, Playa Rincon, Punta Popy etc.!

•Sailing Club next to the residence: includes catamaran (renting and courses), windsurf and kayak

•Tennis court in the residence including possibilty to take tennis lessons with a very good instructor for 350 pesos/h (about 9 USD/7 Eur)

•Whale watching in Samana bay (January-March)

•Excursions to Los Haitises National Park (combines culture, history and ecology)

•Excursions to El Limon waterfalls (hike, 4 x 4 quad, horse)

•Eco tours through the wild and beautiful surroundings by car, jeep, quad or horse

•Mountain biking: with its natural beaches and hills, the region is the perfect environment for mountain-biking individually or with special group tours

•Samana Zipline: ecotouristical attraction for friends and families including waterfall swimming

•Kids club on the Las Ballenas beach, with bar for the parents

•Boat tour to the tropical island of Cayo Levantado

•Scuba diving and snorkeling

•Sail boat rental, including possibility to go with a crew
