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.

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 dedicated to 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 BBQ, air conditioning in the bedrooms (not in the living room), LCD cable TV, Fiber WIFI with download speed of 100 Mbps , safe, laundry room etc. PRIVACY, 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, 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 approximately $ US 5 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. The penthouse is equipped with 3 king size beds in the 3 bedrooms and 2 queensize convertible couches positioned in the living room, making it ideal for 8 people. We can accomodate up to 10 people thanks also to 2 queensize air inflatable mattresses and 2 individual folding beds. There are many nice restaurants nearby. You will enjoy a sailing club just on the beach front with whom we negociated for you a 50 % discount on windsurf and boat rentals + kayak and paddleboard at 2 USD per use. Electricity is included is the base rate as well as daily housekeeping. Fiber internet download speed = 100 Mbps Netflix available Smoking is not allowed indoor but OK on the various terraces which are partly covered We are at the disposal of our guests for any question prior to the stay.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Condo is as pictured! Plenty of room for 3 generation party of 5. Very well equipped, comfortable and great views. Not all restaurants / bars open due to season, but short drive all available. Gorgeous beaches and friendly people. My only concern is that driving is a bit crazy on week ends! Would highly recommend!

We stayed in this lovely penthouse for two weeks with our daughter and her husband and their 6 year old triplets. It was an absolutely perfect place for us to stay. Just as beautiful as the photos. So roomy, nice furniture. Even the huge terraces had nice furniture for sitting and visiting. Great BBQ, which we enjoyed. Kitchen very well equipped with more than enough dishes, glasses and cookwear.

Exactly as the pictures, went with two other couples, condo is beautiful. Unit is clean and well appointed. Lots of space to relax as a group or individually- did not feel crowded at all. Bathrooms were clean and spacious, water pressure was perfect. Occasional blips with electricity brown outs but the essentials were always working with a generator. Beach within a few feet- walked to town almost everyday. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone looking for luxury with a local flair.

Condo was packed full of amenities and near one of nicest beaches in Las Terrenas. The condo was perfect for 3 couples all having their own bedrooms with king size beds and amazing on-suite bathrooms. The staff was responsive and friendly. I would highly recommend this Condo and we will likely be back !!

Spacious penthouse apartment with spectacular views and unbeatable access to the best beach in Las Terrenas. Along with a private pool, a hot tub and a cooks kitchen, the apartment has several areas to unwind, lounge, and enjoy the scenery and beautiful ocean breezes. Three couples stayed for 10 days and we felt like we each had a private suite. Responses to any request to the management were speedily and effectively resolved. Arrangements were made for us regarding excursions to other parts of the region but in all honesty we didn't feel like we needed to go anywhere else. One of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had.

We stayed at The Playa Las Ballenas Penthouse for nine nights in early April and it was simply wonderful – from the moment we arrived! Our family included our three children (12, 8 & 6) and my husband’s mother (86-years old) and the condo was fantastic! There was plenty of space for all six of us, comfortable places to hangout (for adults and kids), nice comfy beds, beautiful views, great location, great pool, great access to the beach and some nearby beach restaurants (fun with yummy food and drinks) and amenities that made our stay perfect (laundry and hot tub are a plus)! We are not the all inclusive type and really enjoy having a low key breakfast as the kids wake up at different times, while we are able to enjoy coffee, a book and a great view – the deck near the kitchen was our “go to” space (also worked for enjoying rum punch after the kids went to bed)! Most mornings were then spent at the pool, which was an easy walk, warm and easy to enter/exit (zero entry on one end) and never busy! Our afternoons consisted of sailing and hanging out on Playa Bellenas or other nearby beaches (Playa Bonita – surfing, Punta Popi – near town, etc). We also did some really fun excursions through both Arena Tours and Flora Tours (both located in town) and they picked us up right outside the condo. If we wanted to stay near the condo for dinner, we needed to eat early at Sol y Mar (they were usually closing up by 5pm) or a beach shack just a little further down the beach (our favorite) owned by a French guy and he would stay open until after 6pm for us (great shrimp, fish, chicken and pasta – which he would make plain for picky 6-year old)! OR, we simply drove to town and ate at one of the many great places! There were plenty of other places that would have been about a 20-minute walk from the condo, but would have been a little too far for grandma. In-between the Sol y Mar and the French shack is another shack which had awesome mojitos (which we would get "to go" and enjoy while building sandcastles). We rarely find a place (both location and lodging) that we would want to revisit in the near future; however, we believe we will be back to this condo within the next five years!

We stayed here for ten nights with friends. It was perfect for three couples looking for a relaxing getaway. Has a tropical feel to it and is very well equipped in every way. The view is incredible overlooking the beautiful pool and beach! It rained a lot when we were there and we didn't care as we could sit outside on one of the decks.The bedrooms were all very large with on suite baths which worked out very well for all. It was very open and the furnishing were very eclectic and comfortable. We loved the housekeeper Alina she was so great and really cared for us. The kitchen is massive and had all amenities. Except we wished the cappuccino machine worked! We felt very safe here and are booking again for next year. Las Terrenas has everything we like quiet,beautiful beaches not built up and touristy. Speaking Spanish is a plus!! We just loved it!

Hola mi nombre es Rafael Sosa hemos pasado 3 noches en este penthouse y puedo decirle que es como estar en un hotel 5 estrellas o algo más. Este penthouse está ubicado en una de las mejores zona de Las Terrenas la vista que tiene desde la sala hacía fuera no tiene precio,es grande y muy confortable para estar con 3 parejas y niños. El equipo de persona que trabajan allí son excelente,la persona que se encarga del penthouse es muy amable y trata de el cliente se sienta como en su casa. A las señora que hacen la limpieza y la cocina doy un 10/10 son unas personas muy humildes y cocinan como gentes profesionales. Estoy muy feliz de haber pasado 3 noches con un grupo de 8 personas en este penthouse,ya estoy mirando una nueva fecha para regresar. Doy las gracias al propietario Elliot Marti por ser tan amable. Espero que usted que está buscando un lugar donde pasar sus vacaciones valla a este lugar. Muchas gracias. Rafael Sosa.

Our group of 5 had a wonderful vacation. The condo is fantastic. It is clean and well equipped, the view is amazing! we had a problem with the water pressure, which was due to a broken pump but Jacques (the on site manager) resolved the issue quickly. We took advantage of the cooking services by Alida for 3 dinners during our stay and we recommend it! the food was great and we got to taste authentic local meals. The beach is perfect, not crowded at all, clean, and you can go long walks! There are many nice restaurants at walking distance from the condo. Our only regret is that we did stay long enough... we are planning to come back next year, this time for 2 weeks.
