About Catherine DeLaura

As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, I was always interested in developing countries. I got to know Dominicans as a teacher in NYC and once I visited I fell in love with the country. Currently, I am lucky to work with one of the best educational non-profits in the country located in Cabarete. But I also get to enjoy the best part of the country at Casa Dorado in Las Galeras.

Catherine DeLaura purchased this house in 2004

Why Catherine DeLaura chose Dominican Republic

I first visited the Dominican Republic and fell in love with the people and natural beauty of the country. The house offers the perfect way to experience the country in a unique setting. Leonel is the best house manager ever. he ives his all for you to enjoy your stay In Las Galeras and the country.

What makes this house unique

Casa Dorado has wide-open terraces with hammocks and beautiful local, Domincian furniture in a Mexican style house. It is truly a relaxing place surrounded by a large tropical garden. It s a 5-7 minute easy walk to La Playita, the best beach in Las Galeras.

“Excellent choice: Comfortable, Spacious, with Best Service”

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Las Galeras, Samana. The moment we entered the home off the street the first day, we felt like we were walking into an oasis of peace and beauty. It was my first visit to Las Galeras, so I really didn't know what to expect. The house is awesome! Beautifully decorated through out the house. Bedrooms were comfortable and the place felt like home. Just a couple of minutes from La Playita & Playa Grande, BEST location! The housekeeper and cook, Leonel was the best. Each breakfast & dinner we had for the 3 days were on point and very tasty.. Excellent cook! Every morning while I sat at the outdoor dinning area, a hummingbird came each and every day! I just can't say enough about this home. We will be back for sure!

I had the pleasure of staying a few nights with friends at this gorgeous home away from home, and I would highly recommend it if you are planning a trip to Las Galeras for three reasons. One, The location can't be beat! It's set back a ways from town, so it's peaceful and quiet, but it lies right next to one of the best secrets in Samana, and the highlight of our trip... an amazing hike to Playa Rincon, one of the top rated beaches in the Caribbean! This hike is a must do in Las Galeras! Two, Leonel and Catherine were so helpful! Leonel was our chef, guide, security, and even schooled us in a few rounds of dominoes. The food was amazing (request his hummus; it's better than some Greek restaurants I've been to!), and his attentiveness was unbeatable. He made our experience unique and fun! And Catherine, the owner of the property, was incredibly helpful. She gave us great advice about what to do around town and made us feel at home in her house. It was as if we had the inside scoop on Las Galeras. Definitely not something you get with just any property. It was fabulous! And three, the house is super comfortable and homey. There are several different room options, so it's perfect for a big group traveling together, and all of the common spaces give you the room to be together as a group, as well as the space to spread out and take time to relax and enjoy the Caribbean pace of life. I would definitely go back and hope to soon!!

Beautiful house, excellent hike, amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed two nights in Casa Dorado with three friends of mine and by the end of the weekend we didn't want to leave. From the moment I got there I was awed by the beauty of the house, spacious, and neatly decorated with a Caribbean feel. Outside there are mango trees and beautiful vegetation. The caretaker, Leonel, was friendly and attended to our every need. He made us coffee and breakfast in the morning (delicious scrambled eggs, salami, and pancakes). He also was our guide on a two hour hike from the house through the country side and several beautiful beaches nearby. These are some of the best beaches in the D.R., especially the grand finale of Playa Rincón. He even climbed a coco tree and broke open a coconut for each of us. We spent an a relaxing afternoon reading in the hammocks upstairs, and thanks to the convenient location, we were able to walk into town and explore a bit. It's just far away enough to feel secluded from the busyness of the city, but at the same time close enough to get in and out by walking. There are plenty of restaurants, a French bakery, and supermarkets nearby. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and I am already planning to go back in the near future. Thank you Catherine!

Gorgeous and relaxing B&B in Las Galeras, Samana

  • 5 of 5

During my second visit to the Dominican Republic, I was lucky to stay at Casa Dorado for a few days. It's a beautiful, spacious and airy home just a short walk from the beach and town. The house has a variety of nooks for relaxing, including an upstairs deck with hammocks, a big open kitchen and a patio with chairs- the perfect size for a family or a group of friends. It's a perfect spot for a long weekend or week-long getaway. And Catherine, the owner, was a wonderful host! I was also fortunate enough to be able to taste the on-sight staff's home-cooked meals. The food was delicious! I look forward to my next visit to Casa Dorado!

My favorite place in Las Galeras!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Casa Dorado many times, and it never disappoints. The house is gorgeous, situated in a quiet location with easy access (short walking distance) to the center of town and La Playita. Cathereine, the owner, gives excellent recommendations for things to do and see in the area--she is a wonderful host! The house has many cozy places to hang out and relax after a long day at the beach, and includes a well-equipped kitchen to cook with a group or sample the amazing food that can be served by the staff. Highly recommended!

Several amazing long weekends spent in Las Galeras.

The architecture and location of the house create the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. It is calm, safe and walking distance to some of the most beautiful Carribean beaches. The food and the service are excellent, and they offer a variety of activities and visits in the region. I'm looking foreword to my next visit.
