About this listing
Our cool and comfortable bungalow offers a peaceful and truly relaxing escape from 'all inclusive' type tourism. It comfortably fits three adults or a family. Enjoy the D. R. and its wonderful cultures in a way that you will fall in love with.
A clean private bungalow, to rent, set amongst the abundance of natural beauty of Jurassic Park.
The bungalow come with a fully equipped kitchen, a double bed (if required, another bed can be arranged), a bathroom with shower, and a terrace with views of the beautiful green tropical valley and the ocean.
Jurassic Park is a magical place situated on a small hill, in a tranquil valley, 3-5 mins outside of the main town Las Terrenas.
A short stroll behind us there are two waterfalls with pools - which are extremely inviting, especially when its hot, great for cooling off and helping to make you feel at peace with the world.
We have semi controlled jungle areas which we continue to improve and make part of the attraction of being here.
There is very little light pollution (no upward facing lights) so you can view the night sky, from our open pool terrace, which are mostly spectacular all year round.
If you are a star gazer, a writer or a poet you would feel very much at home here.
We are moving towards self sufficiency and Eco tourism. We already have pure spring water and we have solar panels and solar water heaters.
We will in the future add a variety of electric vehicles for guests.
If you have children then this is a natural wonderland providing constant amazement. Indeed, visits from the local children, who are a breath of fresh air, will aid your children in understanding this environment.
To top it off we have a trampoline which is very popular with children and uncontrollably happy adults alike.
We also grow many fruits and vegetables and indeed as I write this the wife has popped out to our herb garden for some coriander.
We hope to have created a much more personal and friendly feeling.
We have a great track record of content, repeat visitors. It seems that a return visit is a must, once you have been bitten by the magic and unadulterated beauty of our little oasis.
Also for a small additional fee we now offer breakfast (typically eggs, toast, seasonal fruits, juices, vegetable and cheese empanadas and coffee in our jungle communal area. Its a great chance to discuss your days activities and learn the best places to go. Just let us know before hand.
