Casa del Mar-3,230 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 3 bath villa on a bluff overlooking the ocean and valley. Large porches on either side of the living room serve as dining rooms. Watch whales from the infinity pool! Jacuzzi, barbecue, WiFi, peace, quiet, stars. Perched on a cliff overlooking the deep waters of the Samana Bay, the peace and sights that can be found in la Casa del Mar are unique and impossible to find in any other house or hotel on the peninsula. During the whale watching season, from early January to late March, female whales and their calves gently frolic just off the shore in front of the villa.

From the rear porch, or from the mango garden, startling sunsets with mellow shades of purples, reds and golds contrast with the palm trees and hill contours to make scenes that are peaceful, serene and beautiful. It is a magical place for star gazing because there is almost no light pollution.More
