The villa is surrounded by 1,700 m2 (18300 sq foot) of private tropical gardens and is located in a quiet residential area. The house features 4 bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms, for a maximum of 6 adults and 4 children. There are 3 rooms with 1 king size bed, 1 room with 3 single beds plus 1 pull-out drawer bed. All bedrooms are air-conditioned, equipped with a ceiling fan, mosquito nets and safety box. Both rooms at the back of the house have their own small veranda surrounded by tropical plants. The open living area has two sections. The first section consists of the entrance, the living room and the kitchen. This section can be closed and secured by sliding doors. During the day it is typically open and forms a large unit with the second section on the Veranda. The Veranda consists of the dining area, a small and a larger living area and the most popular hammock corner. All of the above is protected by the thatched roof which extends to the entire house. If there is rain or wind, we have a rain and wind protection curtain on the veranda which keeps most of it outside. The ocean side of the garden is a perfect place to work on your suntan, play frisbee, badminton or soccer. To cool down, the saltwater pool is just few steps away. Guests like to rock the hammock, read a book and sip a cocktail while overseeing the children play in the pool. And so do we… On the other side of the house, the garden is a colorful dense tropical heaven making the two back-of-the-house verandas a cocooning place to retire. The villa is located in a private residential with 24 hours security guard and is only accessible for residents or guests. Bina, our housekeeper, works daily from 8am to 4pm, she cleans the house, prepares breakfast and lunch (grocery expenses not included) and washes the linen twice a week She knows Las Terrenas and all the people we work with perfectly well and can help organizing. She only speaks Spanish, but the communicate with our guests still works very well. Google translate is quite helpful. For dinner service and babysitting an extra charge does apply. Bina is a great cook and mixes a couple of devine tropical cocktails like Cuba Libre, Santo Libre, Piña Colada, Caipirinha, Mojito, Daiquiri or Margarita. Mimio takes care of the garden for more than 20 years. He is a lovely person and part of the Estrella del Mar family. You will appreciate him for taking care of the pool, cleaning the grill after usage and for skillfully opening coconuts just harvested from the trees for you to enjoy the water and the meat. He also helps in many other ways. Some of our guests give him a few pesos and send him off on a motorbike taxi to buy some fruits, vegetables or drinks. Mimio works from Monday to Saturday noon and stays in an independent room next to the house. More

About the neighbourhood
Playa Bonita is a beautiful quiet area with private homes and small hotels. It's the perfect place for surfers as well as beach lovers. Playa Bonita has both, waves and quiet sea on a length of approximately 2kms. It's close to the charming and lively village of Las Terrenas where you can find restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, French bakeries and grocery stores. Some nice restaurants are just next-door at Playa Bonita as well ( Atlantis and Costa Las Ballenas are our favorites). The fisherman can home deliver fresh fish and lobster. Las Terrenas is only 5 minutes away by car. It's on the north coast of the Peninsula of Samana.
Getting around
We recommend our guests to rent a car or motorbike for a few days or the whole stay to explore Las Terrenas and the region. The car and motorbikes are delivered to the house. There are many restaurants, bars, shops, coffees and supermarkets in the village. You can also take one of the several motorbike taxis (motoconcho) to go around. They drive you almost everywhere in town for 50-100 pesos. There are some nice organized excursions you can do as well such as whale watching (January to March only) Jeep safari, National Park Los Haitises, 4 wheel safari, Limon Waterfall, Samana Zipline, etc.
