The room is nice and comfortable. 10 minutes walk to two beaches: the las galeras beach and la playeta. It is situated in a beautiful garden, but, unfortunately we couldn't enjoy it because of the mosquitoes. Juan, the manager of the place helped us a lot, both with things at the house and wit arranging visits to neighboring beaches - which are unbelievably beautiful!

Cynthia was helpful from the time I booked this location. She gave me directions to get there from Santiago which was a bit complicated. She met me at one of the restaurants in the small town center and took me to the place I was going to stay. The apartment was clean and confortable. She provided me with extra towels and sheets. The place was not the Cute Cabana, it was already booked for the days I wanted, but she had this other place available. It was a short walking distance to 2 of the beautiful beaches and the main part of Las Galeras. It was quite, clean and the owner, who lives on the property, was very friendly as well. I would definitely go back! Thank you!

Hi Montserrat, It was such a pleasure to meet you (and your daughter) and was happy when you liked our little village enough to stay a few extra days... Thanks again for staying. Perhaps we'll see each other in the windy city one of these days! Take care, Cindy

We did not stay at this property, but stayed at another listing. Cads del Arbor. Which we loved... Would highly recommend.

I'm really glad to know you liked Casa del Arbol. It is a very special home, described on Airbnb as "Charming 1 Bedroom. Walk to beach!" Maybe we'll see you again next winter...

Cindy, really. No one calls me Cynthia.

My life motto, which seems to work MOST of the time: Que el viento se lleve tus problemas. (Let the wind take your troubles away.)

I'm fairly well-traveled and had never stayed in the same place for more than 2 or 3 days during any of my travels, though I was often gone from my northern California home for months at a time. Then, because I’ve always been drawn to “end of the road” places, I “ended up” in Las Galeras. I moved here a year later to try it out and never went “home”. I’ve explored most of the DR, but I’ve lived on the Samana Peninsula for almost 10 years and now know it quite well.

Though I have a full time job, the ocean, sun and coconut trees make me feel like I'm still on vacation. Sure, I miss some things about life in the good ole USA. Flying, live music (blues, bluegrass, alternative, jazz), backpacking, my fellow volunteers at Sonoma Land Trust, downhill skiing, high speed internet, wine tasting, second hand book stores, Home Depot, The Golden Gate Bridge, Sierra Club "dog hikes", and my granola-crunching, tree-hugging friends, but I love it here.

My Promise: If you come here as my guest, I promise to do whatever I can to make sure you have a great time. I want you to go home thinking that working, saving, planning, organizing and packing (passport, sunscreen, insect repellent, iPhone charger, swim suit, camera, flip flops, iPod, paperback book/s, umbrella).......and then hauling it all to the Dominican Republic and back was worth it. (And that maybe you’d even recommend it to a friend.)

Hope to see you soon.
