|Minimum Stay||3 - 4 nights|
4 Chalets, in a very unusual tropical way , recently built with precious rustic details, placed in a private garden, immersed in the tropical nature, in the calmest place of the Dominican Republic, for real lovers of the nature and for who enjoys a certain level of comfort or independence and doesn't want to stay in a hotel.
Situated at Las Galeras, in the most extreme north-east place in the Samana Peninsula, the 4 cottages are perfectly integrated in this natural extraordinary tropical paradise and surrounded of the most wonderful and lonely beaches of the Dominican Republic. They are all placed into a huge garden, each with its independence, each thought to enjoy a self-catered house, into a secure place.
There is a beach at maximum 10 minutes walking distance from the houses, while the center of the village is at iqual distance, with shops, bar-restaurants and services.
Thanking to the geographic isolation, this fishermen village is away from mass tourism and it is the best for ecological tourism. In this sea the whales arrive since January to March, choosing these warms waters to reproduce themselves.

I'm Sarah, Italian, and I've been living in Dominican Republic since 2000. My life-dream was to live into the Caribbean: I grew up into a gray town (Milan-Italy), and I dreamed sun, palm trees and turquoise seas. I had the chance to visit this place and I decide it was the 'right' place for my own surname ('Paradiso' :-) !!
Sarah Paradiso purchased this cottage in 2006
With my family we built Chalet Tropical : it has been a work of art from people who love so much this tropical nature, to reflect it in any inch of the buildings.
I love that people enjoy this corner of tropical paradise in the best way. That's why I do love to give all the kinds of information which can help our tourists to have the right mix between relaxation and adventure.
We stayed at the Chalet for 6 nights, it was the minimum but we do wish Sarah had said 10 nights. We had so much fun, the lodging was very original, and loved the idea of having breakfast outside. Loved the hammocks etc. The green around us and the vegetation was unique. Had just the right amount of privacy, Sarah was very nice and showed us around and also gave us Bulli who was our taxi driver/guide/friend to show us around. We went in low season July, perfect for us! the walk to the beach was short and we loved the playita.. The best beach for us, beautiful, warm, good restaurant service. We had the coconut fish at the Playita restaurant, never tried the other one because we wanted to use the bathrooms. We left to "enjoy" the experience of a different place and the all inclusive. As soon as we stepped on the inclusive we wanted to go back. It was even painful! Puerto Plata's best beach Sousa has nothing to do with the beaches you will have at the Galeras. Loved the small town, we ate at El Pescador, el pirata.. Good food.. The road to access the Galeras is fixed , still is 2 hours and a half but it is fine. We loved the Limon waterfalls and the Rincon Beach. Felt save although Sarah adviced us not to carry jewels. Ok, just dress up with custom jewelry, jewels do not go with the beach anyway. You will see poverty in Dominican but it is an experience you have to share with your children. Take some used toys or used children's clothes for your child to give others. It is a learning experience. To withdraw money use the atm at the hotel not the bank close to the Chalet because they only allow to get like $50.00 at the time. In the other bank is like $200.00. We knew Scotich bank in Samana has a liason with bofa so we got money out as much as we could from them without realizing we could get $200 twice. No need for a car, we wanted to walk.
