Tercera Luna – Orchid Bay –If having your own personal beach in the heart of the Caribbean is one of your criteria, Tercera Luna just might be the place for you. This 11 acre (43,547 square meters) property with a private beach enclosed by rocky cliffs also features a dense forest of royal palms and a magical cañada. There is also a seasonal stream in a tropically vegetated canyon with small pools and waterfalls that spill into the sea. The well-drained soil and prevailing sea breezes maintain this unusual site exceptionally comfortable and miraculously mosquito-free.

Tercera Luna is accessed by a kilometer long private, tree-lined road within the Orchid Bay gated community. Other villas include a world class private family farmstead on the sea, an opulent rental-villa which can also serve as a corporate retreat, and other artfully designed, private beachfront villas that are all compatible with the character of the community.

This region of the country has known for its charming denizens and relaxed way of life, but it is now starting to be discovered. The friendly local Dominicans, however, have not been corrupted by mass-tourism. To top things off, there is a championship golf course by Robert Trent Jones and two 6-star hotels just twelve minutes away. Surrounding the area, ranching, farming, and fishing are still the traditional sources of local income. Therefore, if you enjoy some connection with what is real, authentic and folkloric, and have a taste for both the simple and the elegant, you will feel right at home here.
