Charming cottage with pleasant outdoor living area, beautiful garden and landscaping.
comfortable beds and very quiet neighborhood.
Somewhat disappointed that walking access to closest nice beach has been gated off so we had to drive. The town beach is walkable.
But we definitely enjoyed this
Fair place to stay
The managers were great . The property is as not as shiny new as it looks in photos , I had a problem with regulating the temperature of the water in the shower( but found the outside shower better anyway ) ;, the largest bedroom I had a problem with , that hopefully they will take care of ; and the single bed down stairs would be the most comfortable place to sleep because air came though all sides of it, but it needed mosquito netting and a new mattress and pillows . I also thought that , and that’s me assuming, the property faced the ocean , which it doesn’t, and that you could have a view of it , which you don’t . It’s was a quiet neighborhood though . Very short walk to town and to the beach . The beaches near the town and to the east , walking distance , were all very nice , but Playa Rincon ( to the west ) was very disappointing. I thought it would be very nice , since it is a little more remote, but it is trashed and if I were you , I wouldn’t even bother traveling over to see it.
Our family stayed here for two weeks and we didn't want to leave. Gorgeous property just a short walk away from everything you need for an AMAZING vacation. Highly recommend staying here as long as you can. Two wonderful beaches VERY nearby.(5-10min walk) Restaurants/grocery store/French bakery/souvenir stores all minutes away YET you are in a secluded area to be able to just relax and take in all the natural beauty of the island. You must visit the main French bakery on main street- AMAZING!!!! Amenities are just as described. Very clean and welcoming.. Mosquitos are bad but if you buy some candles/repellent to burn for outside sitting it is fine. The hammock was wonderful to just lay and read along with the outside lounge chairs after a rough day at the beach. US dollars welcomed at all the restaurants and shops. Do NOT rely on credit cards as most places do not accept them.. WIFI is spotty at times but works- after all you are not there to live on your phone but to experience the beauty and RELAX!!! We felt very safe and could walk around freely with no issues at all, the locals are all about you enjoying your visit. Buy some fish/shrimp/lobsters from Francisco- he will stop by on his bike and offer fresh catches for purchasing and it is worth it!! This truly is a slice of heaven.. We would go back in a heartbeat.... The Millers Visited 12/22/18-1/5/19
We loved it! planning to go back already
La casa de Oli is beautiful! we loved the outdoor shower and used it every day. Juan and Lolo were very friendly and helpful. The beaches are gorgeous, La playita beach is a walking distance and other beaches are reachable by boat. People are friendly and local restaurants offer all kind of food and different range of prices. We are planing to go back with family and friends :)
** Only bad thing was mosquitos!
We had an excellent stay during our trip to Las Galeras. Perfect minimalist bungalow with everything you need for a nice vacation.
The small fishing village is located at the end of the Samana peninsula, directly on the Bahia de Rincon, which is framed by Cabo Cabron in the west and Cabo Samana in the east.
The wonderful bathing beach Playa Las Galeras with its white sand, lined with dense coconut palm forest, runs around the place. In the immediate vicinity there are some beautiful, lonely bays, when you visit one of them comes to mind, paradise.
In the center of the village there are restaurants and bars, as well as a supermarket and bakery. Despite the proximity to the center, the house is in a very quiet location.
