We also have beach chairs, board games and toys for children. White sands and clear waters allows you to have a blast at our almost private beach. Kite surfers love our spot. The beach is never crowded. Las Terrenas Town with a mixed cultural population of French, Spanish, Italians, and many others, offers a great variety of great little restaurants along the coast where you can dine and enjoy a wonderful meal. We are 5 kms away, a five minute ride or forty minutes by foot. Taxis are available, we just need to call and they come in a few minutes, very affordable. We have two international airports nearby. Las Americas Int'l in Santo Domingo, our capital, is a two hour drive in a new 100 kms road. El Catey Int'l in Samana, is a thirty minute drive with direct flights from Canada, some countries in Europe and New York. Our local main attractions are: Los Haitises National Park, Cayo Levantado, Paraiso Caño Hondo, Whale Watching (Jan-April) in Samana, The Coffee and Cacao Route done in Q'ds, El Limon Waterfall, Two new Zip Lines, Excursions to different beaches, Las Galeras, Playa Rincon. Other beaches in the area, Playa Bonita, Playa Coson, Playa El Limon. Come and enjoy, relax, let yourself get away.. I can assure you, you will not regret it. Monica Paiewonsky OwnerMore

Owner lives in an adjacent independent apartment attached to the Villa. I will be around and available if needed at any time. I can suggest things to do, show you around, whatever you prefer. We are a semi retired couple with two shitzu dogs. We own a small supermarket at walking distance. This is our Paradise on earth and we welcome you to come and enjoy it.

About the neighbourhood
The area is very safe and secure. We are at walking distance of a small supermarket called La Bodega de Portillo. It's small but is a little jewel in the area. Like a box of surprises. There's Porto Restaurant at walking distance also and 5 kms away in Las Terrrenas Town there are many many restaurants. It's surrounded by pure nature. Usually a wonderful breeze. It may rain a little and 5 minutes later it's a sunny day.. It's a very Tropical Country.
Getting around
It depends what you want to do. Car Rentals are expensive in this country. Taxis in the area are not. You can walk during the day, and use taxis to go to restaurants in Las Terrenas during the night.
