Sans Souci is one of the very nicest villas in one of the very best locations in Las Terrenas. We are only 100 yards from beautiful Playa Las Ballenas, which is highly unusual for a private villa with its own pool & security. We have been consistently recognized by VRBO as one of the very best vacation rentals in Las Terrenas! Still, our rates are less than what you will pay for older, less attractive properties. Sans Souci is as beautiful & well equipped than anything you can find in Las Terrenas, at any price. This villa also has a remarkable floor plan that makes it just as cozy for two as it is comfortable for eight.
From the custom-designed italian kitchen to the coraline tile baths, oversized terrace and private pool in a large (500sm, 5,500sf) landscaped & walled garden, no detail has been overlooked. The main house contains three bedrooms, each with private en-suite baths that have rain shower heads and hand-held shower wands. There is a separate bungalow that contains the fourth bedroom, also with a private bath. Three of the bedrooms are at ground level and two of them have private terraces opening to the pool.
Our setting is perfect. We are a short 7 minute stroll from the Pueblo de los Pescadores, its restaurants and all the fun of downtown Las Terrenas. That is just far enough, though, not to be bothered by the nightlife when you want to sleep!
Turning away from downtown, you stroll down the best stretch of beach that this charmed area has to offer. There are literally a dozen beach clubs where you can soak up the sun, all within 10 - 15 minutes stroll along the gently lapping waters of Playa las Ballenas.
All bedrooms have air-conditioning and multiple large, screened windows for comfortable sleeping without AC. There are ceiling fans throughout the residence and on all terraces. All electrical outlets are doubled, providing both 110v & 220v power as needed by our guests. The solid concrete construction, covered by thatch "Cana" has been shown to reduce indoor temperatures by 4 degrees Celsius (almost 9 degrees F), making the interior cool and comfortable even on hot afternoons.
Sans Souci in LT is so much more than just a "vacation rental." It is managed by the best operator of luxury properties in town. Their multilingual staff are at your disposal to ensure that you can easily experience all that Las Terrenas has to offer, while enjoying a level of privacy and luxury that typically commands a much higher price. Sans Staying at Sans Souci is an experience par excellence!
Our managers provide daily maid service and will gladly help you organize your excursions to the many stunning sites and activities that Las Terrenas area has to offer. The level of service is virtually always better than you will receive from any of the large, impersonal "condo-tel" complexes charging almost twice the price.
For example, for a modest additional fee, you can have the maid stay longer and cook a traditional Dominican lunch for your group. Our manager can even arrange for a multilingual private chef to come to Sans Souci and prepare a very special gourmet meal, served to you and your guests right on your own terrace!
Our managers will provide as much (or as little) assistance as you would like to have. Their friendly staff are there to ensure that your vacation is as complete, relaxing and rewarding as it can possibly be.
If you are familiar with Las Terrenas, you are aware of how disruptive the traffic noise along the front row of the beach can be, especially when you are trying to sleep. Sans Souci is ideally located just 100 meters back from the beach road and nestled into the midst of high-end residential developments to ensure that you will have a peaceful night's sleep. There are no roads, no discos nor any other noise makers around our property. The entrance to the neighborhood is gaited, with an intercom for visitors to call to request access, AND our individual property is walled with a locking gate. Additionally, there is a night guard on duty from 7 pm to 7 am. The gardener tends to the 8 villas all day and the guard watches over them all night. Sans Souci is located in as safe, quiet & convenient a neighborhood that Las Terrenas has to offer.
Electricity charges are always a big deal in Las Terrenas. Virtually all other villas and almost all condos in town are rented completely net of electricity. At Sans Souci, we provide a credit of $5/day ($35/week) to cover your basic electricity usage. This will be more than adequate as long as you turn off lights and fans when leaving a room unoccupied. If you choose to use the air conditioning, your cost will run about $10 per day per AC unit. In any case, you will only pay for the power you use that is in excess of our $5/day credit.
Finally, and most importantly, we are ideally situated along the very best beach in Las Terrenas, just a short walk from literally scores of excellent restaurants and the town's best dancing spots. Likewise, there are a dozen great little beach clubs where you can while away the day within 5-15 minutes walk in the other direction. We're as convenient as it gets, no matter what you want to do!
Where else can you get your own 4 BR luxury home, complete with a walled, landscaped garden, private pool and daily maid service for half of what you'd pay to stay crammed into a 3 BR condo?!
