Where to stay – Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic: “El Nido De Las Ballenas”

I recently took a mini getaway trip to Las Terrenas, a town on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic, found in the province of Samaná. Las Terrenas is a super dreamy beach village! And yes, my primary activities were beach hopping!

The gorgeous “Playa Las Ballenas”

While visiting this super cool town, I had the pleasure of staying in an incredibly cute bungalow on the property of “El Nido De Las Ballenas”.

Cute outdoor living space of the bungalow.

This serine, gated getaway is found 350 meters from Playa Las Ballenas.

(You have to check out some of the beach views in the link below!)

Onsite, you will find a beautiful swimming pool, free WIFI, laundry service, and housekeeping as well as onsite massages!

Dreamy Pool! 😍

My villa was the largest on the property, with an outdoor sitting area, outdoor dinning area, two bedrooms, one bathroom, a well sized kitchen, equipped with a fridge, stove, and microwave. With a fabulous rustic, bohemian vibe – my home for my getaway was super clean, and well maintained. A large ceiling fan left my bedroom really cool at night (no need to crank the a/c at all!)

Slept like a Queen for 3 nights! This bed was SO comfy!

My travel buddy Ashlee also slept like a Queen in the second bedroom!

I felt SO comfortable in this space during my stay! My host, Carolyn was so pleasant, and professional. And included lovely touches in the villa that were helpful during the stay, such as citronella candles and mosquito coils.

The property is so peaceful and quiet. With lovely water features on sight, which were very relaxing to hear. The grounds are safe and secure, gated, with nightly security. Also the adorable dog Beethoven, (Who took a little while to warm up to me, but in the end became a new fur friend of mine! 😉 ) is on site and also makes you feel safe!

Fell in love with Beethoven! Love that he rocks a “Blue Jays” collar! 🙌🏾

On the property there are also 3 one bedroom bungalows, and one studio bungalow.
