It is unanimous, among our party of four that we chose a great place to stay during out 1 week trip to Samana, DR. The open-air home is very cozy and the view of the water is breath-taking. And the pool....oh,the wonderful pool....we spent many an hour at the end of each day (we ventured out and did something/went somewhere every day) in that pool with frozen concoction in hand. The location is close enough to town to be convenient but far enough away to be relatively isolated...when at the home, feels very private. All amenities are as advertised.....the house is clean and the grounds well-maintained. Did I mention the pool? The owners/hosts, Richard and Ana, were gracious hosts...(we are a fairly self-sufficient group) but they catered to our every need and were more than willing to assist us with anything that came up. Ana prepared us a simple bit oh-so-wonderful traditional Dominican dinner which we enjoyed by lamplight under the gazebo one evening....and that meal was the best we had during our entire stay....marvelous. Richard arranged open boat transportation directly from our beach to tour the Los Haitises National Park. Bambu, the property manager was also most generous with his assistance and entertained us one late afternoon (while we were lounging in the pool, of course), by climbing a tall coconut tree and retrieving some fresh coconuts for us. If you want to experience a very enjoyable aspect of DR culture and the town of Samana, we recommended you go into town on Sunday night and just hang out by the waterfront.....and visit the pizza truck while you're there, too. We would heartily recommend this property to anyone wanting something different from a resort atmosphere and at a very reasonable price.
