Enjoy the Dominican Republics newest Ecotourism area in Samana. Halfway between the port and town of Santa Barbara and Las Galeras, The Cove offers a laid back atmosphere, with spectacular ocean and beach views. Whales can be viewed from the beach. Within 30 minutes of the most popular destinations, including the 'Walk the Plank Zip Line', Cascade Lulu, Rincon Beach, Playita, horseback riding, scuba and snorkelling. Other popular attractions include deep sea fishing, boating, Los Haitises National park, Kayaking, ATV tours, El Valle Beach, El Limon Waterfall, many restaurants, and the town of Las Terrenas 45 minutes away.
We have been enjoying The Cove since 2006 and recently purchased this Condo for rental. All amenities are included for an 'at home' feeling.
Claire Rock purchased this condo in 2013
The scenery is spectacular. Secluded and protected Cove with crystal clear water, set to a backdrop of water and mountains. Wake up to magnificent sunrises and colourful sunsets. Migrating Whales can be seen from the beach January through March.
2nd story condo with amazing panoramic unobstructed views, cathedral ceilings, excellent breeze, and 2nd floor adds privacy, split units that are more quiet and more efficient than regular air conditioning units. Sidewalk around the building and leading to the street.
My wife and I spent a week at The Cove recently and were delighted with the beautiful setting and the great customer service.
If you are looking for tranquility, magnificent surroundings, privacy, and a touch of the tropics, book now!
We flew in from NY on Jet Blue (Which has direct flights) and stayed for 4 nights late February with another couple and my teenage daughter. Upon arriving, we were very happy with the villa. It was clean and neat and very comfortable to stay in. The loft was a nice size but it did get a little warm at night. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and everything worked good. The view is very pretty from the balcony and we even saw whales off in the distance while sitting outside. The beach and pool is a close walk. There is a hammock by the beach that was great to relax in. Even though we never got to swim in it , the beach was very calm and private to just the villa. There is a guard always on duty which makes you feel safe and the manager, Coco, was very friendly. We got to meet the owners while there and they were very kind and helpful. The people we met by the pool were very nice as well. The activities we did were all pretty close (ziplining, horseback riding, whale watching, Playa Rincon beach and El Limon waterfall) So overall, the experience was very good and I recommend it. A relaxing getaway!
This was by far the best place we stayed on our week long vacation to the Dominican. My only regret was we did not stay here longer! The property itself is beautiful. If you are looking for a huge tourist town or a full-time bar tender, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a private beach, a pool almost all to yourself, a quaint little community, and natural beauty then this would be an ideal place to stay. I was a little concerned about the location and wondered if we would rather be in the town of Samana. I'm so glad we went for it. It was the ideal location. We loved the town of Galeras. It is small and quaint and has a great local vibe. There are maybe a dozen restaurants but they are all good. The town is safe and provided a good outing for dinner. It is maybe 10 minutes away. Carmen (the house keeper) also made us dinner one night in our condo and it was wonderful! Our favorite things were ziplining and body boarding at El Valle...keep going past the zipline and you will come upon it. You might be one of a handful of people on the entire large beach. It is gorgeous!! We brought our own body boards and a skim board and my kids were super entertained. The riptide was pretty intense. Not for little children, but my 11 and 13 year old had a blast. We were in the water with them and helped navigate the waters. We also went to Rincon beach. So awesome. I would highly recommend the condo. Would go back again in a heart beat. Thank you Claire!!
We had a good time in the cove. The weather was perfect and the water just right for swimming. We had a lot of excursions to interesting places within an hour. The people in the complex are super friendly and happy to be in that beautiful place. Oh and a bonus is that we saw whales.breaching from the beach.
We spent 4 days in December in this comfortable condo with our two boys, 13 and 6. Very spacious second floor condo with a nice view of the gardens, pool and the ocean beyond. The complex is gated and very secure (they installed a remote key entry while we were there). It is 10 mins drive from the town of Las Galeras and about 20 mins from the town of Samana. Las Galeras has nice beaches (La Playita was our favorite) and some really nice restaurants. The condo is well furnished and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking breakfasts and simple meals. AC and water heater worked great, washer dryer was really nice to have. The owners were vacationing there at the same time and were very helpful with recommendations, making reservations and providing directions to restaurants. We really enjoyed the El Valle zip line and the tour of Los Haitises National Park with Terry (Tour Samana with Terry).
My parents, my wife and I, and our two sons really enjoyed our second stay at The Cove. Claire and Lee are excellent owners/hosts (we were fortunate to be there at the same time they were - in a different condo). I agree with all that previous reviewers have said about the condo - it was great! The kitchen is well equipped, the condo is beautifully decorated, and it has an incredible view from the patio/balcony. With its own beach/pool loungers, you don't even have to compete with others for a spot - though there were never more than a dozen people using the pool/beach at any one time. It is a second floor condo, but the stairs are easy. Since our last visit, a year ago, they have added parking spaces, making the Condo even more convenient. It is hard to decide whether to explore the beautiful area and beaches of Las Galeras or just stay at The Cove with its pristine beach, beautiful pool, and serene landscape. We haven't a single complaint, nor do we have any suggestions for improvement. We loved it!
Many activities and sightseeing tours, including Whale watching, horseback riding, catamaran tours, beach tours, snorkel, horseback riding, Kayaking, swimming, ATV tours, Dune Buggy, Zip Line, El Limon Waterfall
