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

WOW: Excellent Management, staff and a secure area. Very clean, courteous staff, apartment, grounds and pool was cleaned a regular bases. Detail to customer service was one of the best in Cabarete, and I have traveled lots over the years to various apartments/condos. Good for family, romantic getaway or just to relax and enjoy the beach. Beach is a short walk with several restaurants within walking distance. Easy and inexpensive transportation from area to Sousa or Cabarete. Will return again. Thanks Greg to you and your team and looking forward to my return.

Lovely place for a relaxing stay.
The place is very peaceful and I felt very safe. A short drive or a 15 minute walk to the beach was easy. A short walk along the coast and you had the beach to yourself. The staff are very pleasant and were available and accommodating the one time when I needed help. Would definitely return.
Thank you Colin for your review of your vacation stay, and we look forward to your returning, for another vacation, at Cabarete Vacation Apartment/Condo,at Encuentro Beach, Cabarete, Dominican Republic. Thanks again!
Practical With All The Amenities For A Perfect Island Getaway
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
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
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!
