Brand new villa with three bedrooms and a separate bungalow separated by a refreshing pool. All rooms have their own bathroom for privacy. Covered patio where you enjoy the ocean breezes while eating a great meal cooked on a well equipped kitchen. Never needed to use the A/C, day or night. Beach, transportation, tours and restaurants just steps away. Sit by the pool and read a good book or do an excursion zip lining, horse back riding to a water fall or explore other beaches. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
This property was lovely and inviting. The finishing touches were bright, cheerful and high end. While vacationing at San Souci Las Terrenas you felt like you were truly on vacation in a resort area. We enjoyed our time swimming in the private pool that was well maintained , enjoying conversation and meals on the open launni. Everything was top notch quality.
If you love the beach, upscale accommodations, and top notch restaurants at your doorstep then this is the place! Six adults and 2 small children were in our own little world staying at this lovely villa. Loved the pool and the daily maid service along with walking to the beach and lounging in a beach cabana with our own waiter!
Las Terrenas is one of my favorite places to visit. Some time ago I discovered that the Villas Clarissa are located in about the best location there is in Las Terrenas. These 8 luxury villas are within 100 meters of the beach, a short 7 minute walk to town and at the beginning of the best beach that Las Terrenas has to offer.
Whereas all the Clarissa Villas are classified as “luxury”, Sans Souci is clearly a cut above the rest. It is brand new, larger than the rest and boasts substantial finish upgrades everywhere you look. The owners have clearly spared no expense to make this a gracious, comfortable & tastefully decorated home away from home. The all-important terrace is enormous, much larger than any of the other villas in this development. The hammocks are great places for reading and is always in the shade. It is hard to describe how wonderful it feels to relax on this terrace or to sip a drink from the sitting bench the owners had built into the pool that is located just a few feet away. I really enjoyed heading to the beach, then coming home to wash off in the outdoor shower then jump in the large pool.
The bedrooms are spacious, private, well ventilated & each have a private bath. (AC is also available in each BR, but I never needed it.) There are three in the main house and an additional, very private bungalow which serves as the fourth bedroom. Two of the bedrooms even have their own private, shaded terraces. There are lots of towel bars & hooks (unusual per my experience) and the house is even wired to handle any American (110v) and/or European (220v) appliances guests might want to bring. There are ceiling fans everywhere.
The kitchen is the finest Italian kitchen I’ve ever seen in a vacation home, and it is equipped with just about every cooking tool a gourmet chef might need. The 55” “Smart TV” provides access to a wide range of cable channels (major US networks, ESPN, & an assortment of Canadian, French, German & Italian channels), as well as Netflix & YouTube. There is also a Bluray DVD player. The sound bar under the TV doubles as a Bluetooth speaker for your phone, and there is another set of Bluetooth speakers in the upstairs master bedroom. The villa’s wifi internet is more than ample to support HD video streaming.
Probably best of all is how safe, secure and quiet this small group of houses feels. There is a locking main gate to get into the neighborhood then the villa has its own walled garden (with private pool) that also has a locked gate. There is a night guard in the common parking area from dusk to dawn. The villa comes with its own reserved, covered parking space just outside the garden wall, but within the secured perimeter of Villas Clarissa.
Long story short, this place is fantastic. It is a wonderful place to spend a care free holiday in Las Terrenas. C’est Sans Souci!
