Overview

Caribbean Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

With access to two other apartments, I can accommodate groups of up to 12 people.

Patrick Reilley purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Patrick Reilley chose Caribbean

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!

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!

Thanks for the great stay

  • 5 of 5

Patrick is a pleasure to deal with, very easy going and accommodating. Though he was not at the property he was very quick to respond to all our questions and needs. At the property staff is nice and friendly, the dogs exceptionally well behaved. The grounds and the pool are well taken care of, Coco is always ready to help. We vacationed in November when the weather is not reliable, so we had rain, and the ocean often brought in weeds and other debris, fortunately we had a car and were able to go to other beaches to swim. Though driving could be a challenge out there, i would definitely recommend renting a car for shopping, etc.

Owner's Response: Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The rain is unpredictable and the area was actually in a drought. I am happy to hear you were able to visit some of the other beautiful beaches to avoid the rain and whatever the waves brought in. Come back again!

Best Place in the DR! Ocean Front is an Understatement. The morning views are amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We booked with Patrick and had the best time in Samana. Patrick was very professional and gave numerous updates in things to do and where to eat. Coco and Marino are great helpers and will help you with any questions you may have. And Benito and his two trusty security dogs are irreplaceable. Benito was always patrolling the property and the two dogs are truly man's best friend. We never had any fear of our stay and we were never harassed or bothered for anything. The people of Samana are a delight to speak to and to get to know there lifestyle and culture. Las Galleras is only 5-8 km down the street and it is simply beautiful. El Limon and Las Terrenas were to die for! And eating at El Cabito was one of the best dining experiences of my life. It sits over a cliff and the views are breathtaking. Don't be scared to drive!!! It's not bad at all! I drove at night numerous times and you just have to keep your eyes on the road. Watching out for small potholes and motorcycles were no issue. You just have to keep your eyes open and not drive drunk! I had no problems getting around town and the people were so helpful to speak to you and get you in the right direction. Most didn't even expect anything in return so don't be shy to ask for directions around town. Overall, the trip was superb and I would not even consider an all-inclusive resort over THE COVE IN SAMANA!!!!
