Casa Esferica is a remarkable place, at the cutting edge of modern design. Every detail was scrupulously attended and the net effect is stunning. The view from the penthouse is directly across from the rocks that look like whales that give Playa Ballenas its name. Patrick, the owner/designer/host was very affable and interesting. His staff were exceptional, attentive and helpful. They even hosted a party for us.
Casa Esferica has 5 units, and a common lobby, dining area and 2 swimming pools. We reserved the penthouse which is separated from the other 4 units by the lobby level. As such we had complete privacy but it is my sense that the size and orientation of the place is such that one can control the extent of one's interaction with others.
Casa Esferica is perched high on a hill. It is has spectacular views. Accordingly beach access is best by car or bicycle. Beautiful beaches are right at the bottom its perch and it is about 5 minutes by car to downtown Las Terranas.
