About las terrenas

Anywhere you look, one beach is more beautiful than the next one. Playa cosón heads up the list with its turquoise, pristine waters and its three miles of white sand shore. You can actually walk along the sea from the end of playa cosón to playa la bonita (which literally means the beautiful beach,) then playa escondida; cross the hill and you are in playa las ballenas (just nearby Casa Phil), playa punta popi and playa portillo. Over ten miles of a continuous incredible paradise ready for you to discover.

Watch the whale!

Whale watching in the bay of samaná will be one of the highlights of your visit. Between the months of january to march, humpback whales come from distant oceans to the waters of samaná to perform their courting songs and impress us with fascinating shows of flippering and jumping. These whales have chosen our area to mate and come back every year with their newborns and male companions to start anew their cycle of life.

Excursions and day trips

Whether on a horse, on an atv, by car or on a boat, there are wonderful excursions and day trips you can enjoy in the area. From el salto de el limón - el limón falls, fishing trips, snorkeling and scuba diving, or just a walking tour of las terrenas, your days can be filled with activity and emotions. Zip-lining and eco tours through this wonderful tropical forests are an incomparable adventure and a total must. My dear friend Francis is the captain of the 45ft catamaran named 'Califa' and you may contact him for a day trip in the Samana bay to the beautiful 'Cayo Levantado' island (my favorite hang out for snorkeling) or to the 'Haites' national park.

Fine dining and wining in las terrrenas

If you just want to sit back and and enjoy fine drinking and dining, las terrenas and samaná offer you a wide range of international restaurants. From mexican fajitas to an ukranian borscht to a french ratatouille, the cosmopolitan flavor of this town is reflected not only in its population but also in its cuisine. A café au lait and a croissant for breakfast, a cuban sandwich and a mojito for lunch and a paella for dinner is not an unthinkable menu in your culinary journey of las terrenas and samaná. Our favorite hangouts in town (and defenitely 'must do' during your stay) are the 'spoon beach restaurant bar' just 1 minute walk for casa phil owned by willy a cooking gem in town, 'le tre caravelle' owned by the friendly simone for a refined italian fish based dinner (don't leave without trying the risotto tre caravelle), 'la serviette' if you crave for modern french caribbean cuisine, 'la salsa' in the 'fisherman's village with the best price/quality 200 pesos mid day menu.

Sports events and sport tours

Nothing prevents you from continuing practicing your favorite sports and keeping in shape while vacationing in las terrenas or samaná. You can even participate in a 10k road race, a cross country run, a mountain bike competition, sailing, going to a gym, swimming, kite surfing and surfing in our beaches. There are annual events such as las terrenas 10k and the cross country @ playa morón which are internationally accredited athletic events which promote our area as a main sport tourism destination in the dominican republic. If you are into surfing or have always wanted to try it, here is you chance, visit 'nalu surfshop' owned by my friend and surf instructor william.

Nightlife in las terrenas

Certainly, one of the most popular social activities for entertainment in las terrenas, dancing and 'clubbing' is a favorite for both national and international tourists visiting the area. Our 'fisherman's village' is a popular spot concentrating most of the discos and bars in las terrenas, but it is not the only area where to have fun. Nightlife is vibrant in this town offering a new world for the visitors to discover. My favorite's hangouts in the 'fisherman's village' are the replay with Nicholas and Enzo for a mix of contemporary and latin music often animated by one of the local dance schools (to practice your bachata and salsa moves), gaia disco owned by sergio our neighbour on loma bonita.

Casa Phil is amazing!!

I spent a long weekend at Casa Phil in Las Terrenas with 8 of my girlfriends and it was the perfect girlfriend trip house. The house was beautiful with amazing views of the ocean and surrounding hills. Our drive from Santo Domingo was late, so we arrived late and Andrea and Victor were there to greet us. The rooms were wonderful and the beds were heavenly. Every day we woke up to a delicious breakfast. It rained a lot, so we did not get to do any of the excursions we wanted which was a bummer. The beach was only a 5 min walk away, beautiful sands and clear blue water!! The pool at the house was great and the hot tub was wonderful after getting soaked in the cold rain at the beach. The restaurants in the town of Las Terrenas were great, we had delicious pizza and wonderful mojitos. I would love to come back with more sun!!

Fantastic Vacation!!!

This was a very memorable and exceptional vacation, for the most part due to the exceptional Casa Phil and the service we received. My wife an I visit the Caribbean every year in a different location because we feel like we have not quite found that "one place" we would want to return to.......I think we have found it. The house is immaculate, and the house staff are outstanding. We can't thank you enough for a wonderful time...hopefully see you next year!!!!! For those that are considering visiting Las Terrenas...I HIGHLY recommend this lovely, safe, fun little town.

Highly Recommend

Could not have had a better time. Andrea and Victor, who work at the house, will make you feel like family. You can contact Philippe about anything and he will take care of any needs you might have. Great value! The house is perfect.

Beautiful Home with amazing view!!

Casa Phil is a beautiful property with an amazing view. The home comes equip with all the amenities of being at home. The service and cleanliness at Casa Phil was beyond expectation. The view from the pool deck to the ocean is amazing and the sound of the waves is so relaxing. Las Terrenas is very close by if you want to go to town for dinner, drinks or shopping. Also a short drive away are many fun things to do such as Los Haitesis, zip lining, and El Limon waterfall. We had a wonderful time at this magnificent home and will be returning!
