Villa Kristen, a Charming and comfortable duplex house. In just 2 minutes walking you arrive in a beautiful white sandy beach, in the middle of the uncontaminated nature and near to the center of village. It is ideal for sharing a fun and relaxing holiday, to enjoy a huge tropical garden, a barbecue on the sea, and relax with an aperitif on the terrace while watching the sunset.
Semi detach house in common garden.
The owners of the property are in Spain Manorca.
They love to help the farmer people, the animals, they gave work to some many people in Las Galeras.
They have a foundation
Yocasty purchased this villa in 2010
This property is perfect for family, friend party. All lover of the natural landscape will fall in love to this house. Very well decorate, comfortable and show exactly what the owners want to offer to his clients.
You'll have the opportunity to enjoy a real Tropical Paradise, walking in the town, talking with farmer and fisherman people. Here the live is very simple and you only need to love and respect the nature.
The villa was amazing. The layout, the design, that place has great Karma !
Please let the owner know that I loved her place. I can certainly tell that she puts a lot of love into her place. Every shell, plate, flower and detail was wonderful. It was so clean and beautiful. That place is my dream home !
It motivated me to do some major renovations on my home here in NYC.
Elsa and Santiago were sweet hearts. My friends and family were so happy .
I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on picking the place and Samana in general ! My American friends truly fell in DR. It was one of those life changing vacations. That place has some sort of mystical energy.
Feel free to post this , I have no problem telling everyone how great the place is !!!
We are definitely coming back. I'm planning on a longer trip some time in March to see the whales.
Yocasty, you are a class act. It was great meeting you. You have an impeccable reputation in Las Galeras and I'm so lucky to have connected with you.
Spacious, comfortable home with plenty of room for 9-10 people to feel comfortable. The grounds are lovely and the garden ends where the waves start. Sit on the lanai and listen to the ocean, or walk a few steps through the shady palms to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We were fortunate to see a pod of humpback whales in the bay.
Yocasty is a wonderful host and will arrange anything you need; she is friendly and knowledgeable. Maria was our housekeeper and cook for the week we spent at Villa Ibiscus. She put up with our lack of Spanish and taught us a few phrases, and she is an amazing cook. It's far enough from the main street in Las Galeras to be quiet and feel private, but close enough to walk into town for dinner. Don't let the casual look of Las Galeras fool you, the people are friendly, the restaurants amazing and you won't want to leave once you arrive. If Maria isn't cooking an amazing fish in coconut sauce or hebichuela with chicken, try Il Pirata (amazing Italian food), La Playita (right on the beach) or Pescador (amazing Paella). Although we felt safe in Las Galeras, it was nice to have Señor Oscar as the night watchman. We were so well taken care of and so relaxed. We missed a few of the must-see places in Samana' peninsula because we were so happy just relaxing at Villa Ibiscus. We can't wait to come back.
Our Holiday in Las Galeras was spectacular! Fantastic quiet beaches (6), great food & warm safe atmosphere. Villa Ibiscus was an amazing choice for our homebase and everything described in the listing is completely accurate...except the description doesn't go far enough; starting with GORGEOUS OCEAN VIEW (manicured yard & abundant flowers), spacious clean rooms which were fully set up for guests (linens, towels, coffee, dishes, shells & lots of extras)! We had decent wifi and international TV when we wanted them & were able to easily keep in touch with back home. The decor was tasteful and Caribbean style with artistic feel. The terrace was an oasis and we had no mosquitoes - none! The gardens surrounding the house were really special and being the very last villa (in a nice neighborhood) just before the beach ...was really only steps to La Playita (the little beach) which had FANTASTIC swimming & 2 little restaurants (fresh fish) and working fishing boats nestled under the palm trees. The path is only a few hundred yards and is well traveled with flowers and a tethered donkey (or 2). We especially enjoyed the well equipped kitchen but could easily walk the 5 mins to town where there were abundant choices to eat. The housekeeper Maria was lovely and we especially were grateful for the warm welcome (fresh pineapple juice, coconut muffins etc) & advice of the charismatic property manager; Yocasty! She really made our stay PERFECT (answered our questions, arranged transport (Thx Kelvin!) & suggested activities - all of which were spot on!)... She speaks several languages fluently and was such a helpful and vibrant personality. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful wonderful place to stay, then Villa Ibiscus is it! We were only a family of 3 but the house can easily accommodate another 3-4 people. Rooms and beds were as advertised & didn't disappoint. The ocean breezes meant we didn't even need the air conditioner (we could hear the waves) & and spent hours on the terrace. The area was really special and our 1 week was packed with memories. Some activities we enjoyed: Rented Quads and drove 1 hr to Rincon & back through little hamlets and back roads, took a boat/captain to Fronton & Madama Beaches one day and had our final dinner up on Mont Azul. - The rest was spent at the villa or at the beach just beside the house. Amazing/Unforgettable/Wonderful holiday home! I would highly recommend this property and vacation area to friends/family (and already have).
Great property for family reunion, but it has private bungalow on the first floor. Customer service from the Manager and the housekeeper is outstanding. I recommend hiring the service of the housekeeper lady, it is worth it, and allows you to complete relaxation she cooks delicious, keeps the house clean and very friendly. We had a great stay, and will be back.
Villa Ibiscus and Las Galeras was a paradise. Yocasty was very attentive and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. She arranged airport transfers with a very courteous and timely driver, Kelvin. All her excursion suggestions were on point. We enjoyed every one of them. The house was spacious and clean. We felt safe in the area and in the house. Gaston, the overnight security guard, made us feel so much safer. Definitely we have no complaints.
Our stay at villa ibiscus was the best place I have stayed on the island of Dominican Republic since I have been going there for the last 10 years. Las Galeras is one of a kind community. The people are friendly and helpful. The house has magnificent views. the house clean and the property was well maintained. The manager was exceptionally helpful. The cleaning lady is an angel and can cook some amazing meals. I look forward to visiting them again. I just want most of all is to say thank you to all of them for make my vacation a special one for my family and I
Ho fatto 18 ore di volo per soddisfare il mio desiderio: riposarmi di fronte al mare.
Il posto è bellissimo pieno di natura, la casa è veramente accogliente e comoda, un bel giardino di fronte al mare; il clima mite, caldo, ma non eccessivamente, tanto sole ; per me è molto importante venendo da un posto grigio e freddo come Milano.
Ho fatto più di un’ora di nuoto il giorno, lunghe passeggiate sulla spiaggia. E´ veramente un posto ideale per rilassarsi e dimenticare lo stress.
