“Estrella del Mar” is our 4 bedrooms family hideaway and beachfront home, our little oceanfront piece of heaven with a mind-blowing view of the Playa Bonita Bay and direct access to the beach. The villa is surrounded by 1,700 m2 of private tropical gardens and is located in a quiet residential area next to the city of Las Terrenas in the Dominican Republic.

Open Living Area

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 – the Veranda. The Veranda consists of the dining area, a small and a larger living area, and the most popular hammock corner. See the floor plan.

All the above is protected by the thatched roof which extends over the entire house. If there is rain and/or wind, we have a rain and wind protection curtain at the very front of the veranda which keeps most of the weather outside.

Pool & Garden

The ocean side of the garden is the perfect place to work on your suntan, play Frisbee, badminton, or soccer. To cool down, the pool is just a 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. And with a bit of luck, you can sample the fruits of the newly planted avocado tree.

The house features 4 bedrooms, each with a en-suite bathroom, for a maximum of 6 adults and 4 children. There are 3 rooms with 1 king-size bed each, 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 a safety box.

Both rooms at the back of the house have their own small veranda surrounded by lush tropical gardens. We use those verandas for quiet reading, private talks, exercising, or just for a short break after an active day. Each veranda has a ceiling fan.

The Villa Estrella del Mar is located on the northeastern coast of the Dominican Republic in the district of Samana, close to the El Catey International Airport (Airport Code AZS, 15mi/25km) and next to the village of Las Terrenas, linked with a highway directly from the main airport Las Americas (Airport Code SDQ, 85mi/140km) and the capital Santo Domingo (95mi/155km).

Samana is a good match for travelers in search of eco-attractions, authentic culture and off-resort activities and dining. (Click here to read more)
