This is the perfect family vacation home to enjoy quality time and disconnect from the world. Samana is a very enchanting area on the northeast coast/peninsula of DR. It is very much off the beaten path and you could not get more authentic than this....More

We stayed at this beautiful villa in March and it was unbelievable, just what the doctor ordered! The villa is a combination Mediterranean look with Caribbean accents on a 4 acre property. The villa has everything you need so you don't need to leave if...More

If you want to be safe during your vacation then I don't recommend you this villa. We rented the Ballenas Villa in las Galeras away from the city thinking that it was safe from June 22 thru June 27 to have a relax vacation with...More

This incident is completely unsubstantiated. The guests did not report this "alleged incident" to the on-site security/caretaker, until the next morning after spending the night in the villa. The on site security lives in a home 150 feet from the villa and was home during...More

About the neighbourhood
Visit and you'll understand why Las Galeras and the Samana Peninsula attract so many international travelers. The area offers miles of often deserted beaches including famous Playa Rincon, which can be reached by car, boat, horse or on foot. Both ends of the 6 km white sand beach have restaurants and one end boasts a fresh water creek, perfect for rinsing the salt off. Fronton Beach, accessible by boat or on foot, is a favorite with technical climbers. Go by boat and your captain can arrange for someone to catch and cook you fresh fish, right on the beach. Madama Beach is one of the cutest beaches ever and is usually deserted. Arrive by horse, boat, or walk from town in about 1 ½ hours. El Valle Beach, off the beaten path, has 2 restaurants which specialize in, guess what, fish. “Th... more
