Overview

About the property

Apartment 5A. Convenient ground floor, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

If this apartment is booked, please see my other two apartments on VRBO #'s 816267 and 816268. They are all at the Cove, a small group of beach front, ocean view apartments. They are all just 200 feet from the ocean. This modern apartment serves as your home base from which you can explore the peninsula. Arrange deep sea diving and sport fishing excursions with The Dive Academy. You can snorkel at some of the most beautiful beaches, including Playa Rincon, Playa Las Galeras, El Valle, and Playa Fronton. Seasoned scuba divers can explore local shipwrecks.

Come see the humpback whales breach out of the water, from January to March, each year, when they come to mate and have their offspring!!!

In between you and the ocean is the pool, with a swim up bar. Grill local fish on the charcoal barbeque, or stay inside and cook in the full kitchen. It features a view of Samana bay, and a private beach, only a few steps away.

Since I own two other apartments, I can accommodate groups of up to 12 people.

About Patrick Reilley

As I financial planner residing in Pennsylvania, I get tired of the long dreary winters. When touring the Dominican Republic, I fell in love with the Samana peninsula. We try to visit a few times per year, and we enjoy sharing the beauty of the island with other vacationers when we are not there.

Patrick Reilley purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Patrick Reilley chose Dominican Republic

I bought this property, because I got tired of the same old thing. I wanted to do something different everyday, and enjoy nature. I found this place after a tour of the whole island, and when I saw the view of the ocean, and enjoyed a dip in the infinity pool, I knew that I had to make this happen.

What makes this apartment unique

Here you have the privacy and tranquility of a small beach, but if you drive a few miles, you can enjoy some of the larger beaches like Rincon or El Valle. All of the beaches here at the tip of the Samana peninsula are mostly undeveloped. You can enjoy a true Dominican meal at one of the rustic outdoor restaurants or bring your own cooler with some food and cold Dominican rum and Coke!

Fabulous!

What's not to like. Beach within sight of your Villa. Whales abound. Well kept property. Great place to stay with or without kids. Will go back.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Patrick is very professional and responds quickly to any questions or problems you may have through email. All of the staff was wonderful and attentive. We don't know if it is always this way, but we basically had the beach to ourselves, and what a beautiful beach it is! It was great for swimming, a little rocky, but it is so clear you were able to see where you are stepping. The pool and grounds were kept beautifully. Everyone was so friendly. It is a very comfortable unit and the AC units worked well. There is a colmado and fish shack within walking distances. We were able to catch the fisherman as they were coming in for the day and purchase right from the boat. We were hesitant to rent a car, so we chose to use a taxi, which was very reliable but can get expensive, so we tried a guagua and for those who are adventurous, it was great! It was a wonderful experience and great views while traveling. We would definitely take a guagua again. Coco helped us to catch it, which was right outside the gate. Carmen made a fantastic meal for us, traditional Dominican but superb and she cleaned up afterward. Thanks for a great stay.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach and pool view nice and clean grounds and comfortable condo. We spent 4 days at the Cove in las Galeras Samana and had a wonderful time I love the seclusion it was truly relaxing. The property owner Patrick although wasn't on the premise was great to work with he gave us good directions but we also found that google maps works perfectly there. The property host Coco was friendly and very helpful to work with. Orgita was our cook she made us so amazing food including a freshly caught fish. Fama was our tour guide he gave us some good tips for places to go see and explore. Definitely will come back!!

Peaceful and beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

Such a beautiful spot! Quiet and secluded. The pool was very nice and the grounds were lovely. Gorgeous views from the patio and the pool. I saw one of the best sunsets from the beach. Carmin made me one of the best pina coladas I've ever had. The beach isn't the best for swimming and you need a car, there really isn't anything in walking distance. The people were so nice and helpful. The place was well stocked with towels and linens(although a few could be replaced) It could also be stocked with a few staples such as hand soap and salt and pepper. The air conditioners were noisey, but so nice to have. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here.

A Slice of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I made our first trip to the DR and couldn't have picked a better spot to relax and experience the culture. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Patrick was great to work with from start to finish and Coco became our instant friend. We miss his smile along with the warm tropical breezes and the cool dips in the pool. The only downside was we didn't stay longer. We'll be back. Next time, two weeks!
