About Greg Gill

Hi, my name is Greg Gill, I am a US citizen, also with residency in the Dominican Republic. I am a graduate of Cardinal Farley Military Academy, Rhinecliff, New York, and attended Loyola College(Concordia Universty) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, where I also played college basketball, for the Loyola College Warriors. When I came to the Dominican Republic initially, in 2004, I immediately enjoyed what the North Coast had to offer, sun, the beach, great people, food, and a healthy lifestyle. I decided to buy property, for vacations and then for a warm retirement location, and it has turned out better then I could imagine. A little over 3 hour flight from NY/Northeast US/Canada and I could be away from the cold and enjoy the sun, warm breezes and waters of the Caribbean. My occupation and training is in Construction, as I worked as a Building Inspector for 30+ years, and am very impressed with the construction here-homes built with reinforced concrete, tile and stone, making a home beautiful, long lasting, and virtually fireproof, and with colorfull Caribbean landscapes, so soothing for the spirit! I also now build homes here for visitors who have come here and wish to have an island home, to vacation at, to rent, and to retire, when the time comes.

Greg Gill purchased this apartment in 2004

Practical With All The Amenities For A Perfect Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Greg has quite a perfect location, close to the beach only a short nature hike to beach which takes about 10 minutes. There are many things to go and see that are walkable (Surfing, Fishing, Hiking, Great little restaurant down the road as well). Very safe and very special are the best ways to describe the Villa Apartments here at Encuentro Beach. I couldn't think of a better situation to recommend to couples, singles or families with small children. We stayed for several days and wish we had more time. This place is way better than any over priced hotel or large home. The weather was perfect and it was great to wake up in a very spacious, nicely laid out apartment and take a morning dip in the pool. The apartment has everything you would need and the outside courtyard area is very private and tranquil. The location is perfect and you are very close to town. The staff that Greg has (Jesus and his wonderful family) are there for your convenience 24/7 and are able to take care of anything you need whether it is a ride into town or light cooking (for a very fair and affordable fee). We cannot say enough about this property, the location and Greg and his staff (Top-notch operation). My wife and I are looking to come back for another visit in the future. Thanks Greg, Jesus and his family for making it a wonderful trip for us and we wish you good fortune!

Beautiful, quiet, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for four days/nights and should have stayed longer. We were immediately impressed with the beautiful garden and pool area. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Located in a lovely and quiet neighborhood, the apartment is an easy walk to the beach and in the other direction, to the main road for local transportation into town. The caretaker Jesus is just a shout-out away for extra bottled water, and affordable ride into town or anything else you may need. Jesus picked us up at the airport and took us to the bank and grocery shopping on route to the apartment.

Well taken care of and comfortabe

  • 5 of 5

For the low key traveler who wants to relax to the sounds of the ocean instead of the sounds of nightlife, this place is for you! The grounds are blocked off by thorny plants and a large wall, you walk inside and are in a safe compound where you can enjoy a pool, small veranda, a full kitchen, and a very clean and comfortable setup. There are no frills to the set-up, but that's what makes it so awesome. Jesus the caretaker and his wife Selia (?) are both so wonderful, kind, open, helpful, and trustworthy. It was an added bonus to have them around. The place is cleaned every few days, unlimited fresh water, wifi and a walk from the beach. Thank you!

Honeymoon getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonder stay here at this villa! It was very clean and had everything we needed. It had breath taking views of the crystal blue ocean! The villa was fully stocked with everything you need in the kitchen so we were able to eat in a few times. But we also had the option to go out and eat as well as it wasn't far from town center where there are tons of shops and restaurants. I would recommend this villa to anyone ! It would be a perfect spot to have a family reunion as you would have your own private compound with your private pool no need to fight with people at a hotel because they are being loud or kids are splashing.... This gets 5 stars from my wife and I and cannot wait to go back!
