PIECE O HEAVEN, ON A SERENE BEACH, FISHINGBOAT W. F-GEAR & KAYAKS, INCL. FREE

Samana House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 8 with sofa bed.

This vacation home is on a sereen and very private beach and overlooks the bay of Samana. With 3000 sq. meters of lush garden and fruit trees, it offers you a sereen tropical ambience, yet with all the comforts of a modern home. This property has its own fresh water spring, thus always ample hot and cold water, also back up battery inverter and 5 kilo generator, thus always electricity. The property is in a rural area, surrounded with coconut plantations, with a hilly landscape. There are numerous hiking trails into the surrounding hills, and a sizable waterfall nearby. From the tiki hut, there are 61 staires leading to the beach.The beach is small and very private (as you rarely see another person) and consists of pebbles and sand (This is not a world class pure white sand dream beach, but then, neither is it congested with tourists and haglers). The water entry is comfortable and shallow a long ways out, thus the generally calm bay waters offer very safe swimming conditions and good snorkeling jjust right off our pier.

Excursions- 46ft Sailboat, Fishingboat, Kayaks: Included FREE with this property rental is an 18 ft. open fishing boat with o/b motor & fishing gear ( just put the gas ), and two kayaks ( a 3 man & a 1 man ). There are many coves with lovely secluded beaches, just 20 min. away by kayak,or the fishing boat, and many more interesting and beautiful spots (like the island 'Cayo Levantado' and the national park 'Los Haitises' known for its numerous large cathederal ceiling caves with ancient Taina indian paintings ) just halve an houre away with a private excursion boat, that will pick you up, right at our pier, for a very reasonable group fare. Also, fast boat transport(20min.) to and from Cayo Levantado avail. from the house for 50 US for your entire group(not per person) round trip, full day. Also, whale watching (sighting very probable ) from mid Jan. till end March. Large waterfall at 20 min. hicke.

The town of Samana: .The friendly town of Samana (with its long waterfront promenade) has various international restaurants, night clubs, discos, a small casino, and supermarkets, and is just three miles from the house. The prop. manager/boat captain stays in a small house on the same property, although seldom seen as we respect the privacy of our guests, he is always avail. to help with any detail or answer any questions. Please, no guests under the age of five, infants excepted (unless willing to leave a damage deposite of $300, returnable on departure).From the St.Domingo arpt.(Las Americas), it is a 2hr. 10 min. drive, on a new and scenic toll road that disects the island from the south coast to the north coast, arriving Samana.

Beautiful retreat!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this stunning property! The views from the verandas, pool, and gazebo were spectacular. We took advantage of the private pool and kayaking from the secluded beach, and we listened to the ocean every night as we went to sleep.

Richard and Anna were extremely helpful and accommodating, and were readily available for questions and assistance. Richard was kind enough to arrange a private boat to transport us from our private pier to Los Haitises National Park, and he graciously accompanied us as tour guide and translator. We also really enjoyed their three dogs Tito, Tita, and Wendy! Unfortunately, we only saw Bambu the caretaker briefly once as he was away most of that week.

We would definitely recommend this rental. If you're looking for luxury accommodations you should probably try a resort, but if you're looking for a private home with spectacular views, this is a great option.

Paradise

We took our first trip to the DR with two of our married children and their spouses. Everything about the country exceeded our expectations, and nothing exceeded them more than Richard and Ana's lovely home near Samana.
The house is utterly private and huge French doors open both the upstairs and downstairs living areas to the breathtaking view of the grounds and the bay. The house was clean and the pool and grounds are meticulously maintained. The private beach wildly exceeded our expectations. It is ringed with palms, sandy at all but high tide, and is complete with access to a free-flowing fresh water spring for rinsing off.
We had a rental car, which added greatly to our flexibility, as we toured most days and ate out most nights. The property is such that you could certainly be content to stay there all week, but a first-day trip to the market would have to be arranged.
We also availed ourselves of the trip Haititis, and counted it a highlight of our time in the DR. Richard gamely joined us and his translation and company made a fun, enlightening day even more so.
We had no problems with the house, but had we, it was clear that Bamboo was on call to promptly remedy them.
We not only would recommend this property to friends, but have already, and dream of the day we can return for longer.

Beautiful home to relax at and enjoy the views

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Richard and Ana's house near Samana. The home is exactly what we expected. The property is beautiful and the home is beautiful and very comfortable. Richard has made sure that even with the frequent power outages you expect in the Dominican, the home continues on with back-up power so you hardly notice the change. The home has a balcony on both levels, each with wonderful views of the bay and a pool to relax in at the end of the day. As an added bonus, we found great snorkeling with an abundance of fish just a short distance off our pier! Richard and Ana were exceptional hosts, arranging the best deals on taxis and going along with us on a tour of the Los Haitises National Park, across the bay, serving as our own, personal guide. We merely walked down to the pier for our boat transport. We also did a morning whale watch with Kim’s whale watching tours, located at the public pier in Samana. We saw several whales and the trip was very enjoyable. Richard suggested that we exercise the option to be dropped off at the “island” for the afternoon. The island’s beach was exceptional and great food and beverages were available at reasonable costs. Richard and Ana even went so far as to go into town to buy us groceries and beer when we ran out of supplies.

We want interested renters to understand this property is a private residence and not an all-inclusive resort residence. You are responsible for taking care of your meals and transportation to and from Samana, if you chose to “go to town”. Our party enjoys getting away from the commercial enterprises and exploring the country as Dominicans live day to day.

All in all it was a fantastic experience and we made new friends in Richard, Ana and Bambu. We would definitely rent this home again.

Fantastic week of sun and enjoyment

We have been renting homes internationally for the past several years, and this year was the best overall experience we have had so far. Richard was the most gracious host we have encountered. He was always there when we needed him, and not there when we did not require his help or knowledge. We arrived to find some food and beer already in the refrigerator in case we did not want to make a trip into town that day. With Richard’s guidance on which place to buy produce or which restaurant to try, trips into town were extremely easy… even with no knowledge of Spanish. We took a trip across the bay to the National Park which was enjoyable for all, except for one who did not enjoy the bumpy ride back. Three days later Richard was nice enough to take us out on his sailboat for the entire afternoon. The weather was great, ride was smooth and we would recommend it highly to future renters. The house itself is in a beautiful setting, right off the main road, but isolated from everything. The steps down to the beach were a workout, but it did not stop us from making plenty of trips down to the ocean. A nice bonfire on the beach one evening followed by star grazing was a highlight as well as the morning fishing with Bamboo where we caught a fish that served as dinner for two nights and a lunch. While we hate repeating locations with the many options available out there, this will be a repeated trip in the next few years. We highly recommend this place! Thanks again Richard and Bamboo.

We have rented many villas in the Caribbean but have never experienced such gracious warm hosts as Richard, Ana, and Bambu. They did everything possible to make our week the most enjoyable. Richard takes great pride in this area and is very informative and helpful in every way. They know the best spots for eating and the best spots for sightseeing. Having him around is like having your own personal guide! Also, Ana is a very talented cook and every meal was a culinary delight for us. The home is clean, simple and casual. Most of our time was spent on the relaxing deck and by the pool just enjoying the lush tropical vegetation and gorgeous views. The home is in a very good location for it is close to a small town and is centrally located to many of the sights and activities that are highlights for this area of the Dominican. Driving in Samana was not our most favorite thing to do however Bambuu would come to our rescue and fetch from town whatever we needed. Also, being that we were limited in our Spanish, our hosts were most helpful in making us feel comfortable in a third world country. This type of service really made us feel very relaxed during our vacation. This home gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself into the culture, feel safe, feel relaxed, and to meet friendly people who will definitely make your trip most memorable.
