We oThe property i, right on the beach
Over the past years, we have always tried to take my vacation in both relaxing and exotic places. However, never have we been so blown away by such a beautiful scenery.
Before we arrived, the owner kindly recommended us different excursions to do during our stay. We had a boat come to the beach of the Villa one day to bring us on an excursion to visit the coast of the island -breathtaking. Another day, we took a boat to visit mangroves.
Whenever we decided to spend the day at the villa, were the only ones on the beach, and got to enjoy its peacefulness.
Moreover, if we left for daily excursions, we always came back at sunset and got to sit by the pool. If we needed any assistance, two domestics were there to help us. The owner also often called to make sure everything went ok, something we really appreciated.
One thing I would recommend though is having a car to travel around. For the rest, we loved being isolated from the city, and hearing the calming noise of the ocean before going to bed. The Villa itself was beautiful, and always very clean.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to experience paradise ! This was a trip we will never forget.
Beautiful, quiet, oasis!
The property is beautiful! Con: remote, difficult to obtain groceries if you plan to cook yourself and you do not have a rental car available to you. Pro: The Chef is excellent. Con: Would be helpful if the Chef had menu suggestions available for the guests to choose from in that DR cooking uses different types of foods and it is hard to know what is available. The kitchen needs updates for cookware and appliances. Unless one knows Spanish, it is difficult to converse with the help. I used Google translation which helped to overcome, but again unless you are familiar with DR cooking it may be confusing. Lobster and Shrimp were either not available or very expensive. Con: The rodents: bats, spiders, rats, cockroaches, lizards should be expected as they are a natural part of the country. Pro: The house is clean and the help at the house are wonderful. All in all, an adventure and an experience of a lifetime:)
Thank you Evelyn for your helpful comments.
What a good idea to prepare a list of special available.menus for our guests!
Yes, it is better to rent a car when you book our villa.. So it is easy to visit the best places of Samana Peninsula, organize your own shopping, and go to famous restaurants around Las Galeras.
Yes we are in a tropical area , so we have every sort of animals but included too; beautiful birds (caracoleros, Hummingbirds, fregates, etc..) splendid tropical flowers and tipical fishing or country people scenaries.
Yes it is an adventure,.... the best one!
There were 8 people in our party and we all had a very good experience.
The house was a good size for are family. We especially appreciated Carla and Diogenes. They were so helpful and kind. We never felt they were an intrusion. The night guard, Noel made us feel very safe as well as Jeffery who accompanied us on our hike and ATV adventure. The pool was really nice. Carla cooked for us every night but one plus made delicious corn cakes, fried bananas, and delicious pina coladas and passion juice. The beach was close and beautiful. Our teenage children loved riding the waves. We played lots of games together and it was wonderful to not have TV or internet access. A lot of bonding time and relaxing time for are family who live busy lives in the states. Our only negative is the long ride from the airport. It was also nice being so secluded from a lot of tourist and very little chance to shop. We chose not to rent a car which limited our activities, but that also gave us the opportunity to truly relax and grow closer. A wonderful trip!!
Amazing in every way!
What a wonderful holiday! The house, while a little off the beaten path, was beautiful. Extremely well kept and a true villa. Three large bedrooms upstairs, each with its own bathroom, plus another en-suite bedroom on the first floor allowed all of our guests privacy, and convenience for our older guest who has trouble with stairs. Most exciting was the private beach just steps from the house. We listened to the waves crashing at night and woke to views of the water and hills. The house staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We got in very late in the evening and Diogenes was waiting to guide us to the house. We also arranged for dinner to be prepared for most of our stay - it was well worth it!
Two recommendations: Definitely rent an SUV - most the roads around the house are dirt and rocky so you’ll need it! And don’t forget your bug spray. The windows do not have screens, which we didn’t mind, but you’ll wake up to chewed legs if you don’t spray before bed!
Thank you, Vincent, for making this marvelous house available to vacationers. It was truly a paradise.
This is quite simply the most beautiful place imaginable. The villa is set in a very private location next to two stunning semi private beaches. We rarely saw another person on either beach. The villa is spacious, well kept with stunning views. It is very well equiped and keeps cool even in summer so we didnt need the airconditioning.The staff, Diogenes, Dulis and Noen were friendly and extremely helpful but unobtrusive. The pool is large. deep, warm and well kept..We had no problem with mosquitos or other unwelcome insects. Although off the beaten track the road is not too bad, an SUV is helpful but a 4x4 not essential. It is still easy to go out for dinner and to visit the rest of the penisula with its many beautiful beaches.towns and waterfalls.
The Dominicans are extremely friendly warm people who made us feel very welcome.We were humbled by their generosity..
We have travelled extensively and will definitely return to this peaceful haven.
We hope you can come back to our little paradise.
We are so happy and work hard to make better and better our service.
Vincent and the staff
All was paradisiac: staff, villa, beach, swimming pool, etc..
The ideal situation during the day allows one to visit the most remarkable sites of the Peninsula (Playa Rincon, Los Haitises national park, whale excursion trips, el Limon water falls, Las Terrenas and its beaches ,…etc).
