We stayed here for 4 weeks and loved it. The view is breathtaking and we saw whales (using binoculars), cruise ships that passed and gorgeous sunsets, all from our deck. The beach was quiet and sandy right into the ocean. We rented a car and travelled the island and it was always nice coming back to our home base. The place does need some maintenance/upkeep and we did witness repairs happening on other units during our stay. It also needs better stocking of tea towels, dish clothes, wine glasses, oven cookware, however I understand it is difficult to know what is not provided or broken if the owner is not advised. Hopefully the people there that are suppose to maintain the unit will air it out and have water available for the guests first day of walking in. After our long trip it was initially disappointing walking it to a place that from the smell, was closed up for a while, and where we had to run out to the nearest store to at least have some drinking water. There were a few things that were broken that my husband was able to fix, but I'm thinking the previous guests possibly did not inform the owner. After a few days to get food and settle it, we loved it and would recommend it to family and friends. The place is worn compared to the photos, but for the rental price we paid, it was still an excellent place to vacation.
This was the perfect vacation home for two familes with adult children. 5 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms gave everyone time away when they needed it. The location is a bit remote, but they arranged for us to have a van and driver at a very reasonable rate.We really enjoyed the local fruit and vegetables & the grocery store in Samana (as well as supplies at the house) had everything we needed. Only "issue" was we didn't bring enough cash -- using credit cards isn't convenient, and not available in many places -- including restaurants.The property manager helped us schedule great tours, and the others on the property were very nice. Highly recommend!
