Description from owner

Description

La Cueva is a unique eco-house in Dominican Republic. There is unique cave integrated in the house (bathroom). The house is spacious and has a zen athmosphere, with 2 terraces (yoga) & situated in a very green and garded area, close to the beaches and centre of town.

La Cueva is a unique villa constructed around a rock formation.
The concept for the house is based on 3 principals:

Integration with nature: the house follows the lines of the – original
rock structure. The cave inside has been renovated as a supreme bathroom.
Simplicity in structure: the concept and design of the house is consiously held pure and simple. The whole is built with raw and natural materials. By using organic forms and fluent lines in the architecture of the eco-lodge, we want to create a peaceful and inspiring atmosphere.

Ecological: all water is collected from rainfall on the roof and is used in the watersystem. We use a biological septic pit, in where all used water is collected,

Ecological: all water is collected from rainfall on the roof and is used in the watersystem. We use a biological septic pit, in where all used water is collected, filtered and finally flows back into nature.

The house with garden counts 1.000m². The house contains 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one in the cave, one outdoor shower) - 2 toilets, a large terrace on the ground level (with thatched roof), an upper rock terrace with a nice view on the surroundings, a fully equipped kitchen, a big walk-in closet and a large inside livingroom.

La Cueva is situated in a beautiful laid back & quiet area, only 3 minutes away from the beaches (playa Las Galeras and Playita) and in walking distance to the village, with shops & restaurants.

The Dominican Republic region

Las Galeras is situated at the outer eastern end of the Saman Peninsula, a thin strip of land poking from the Dominican Republic's northeast out into the Atlantic ocean.

The Spaniards made little use of this part of the country the first centuries of their rule, what made it a hotbed for pirates. Until the late 19th century, a narrow channel separated Saman from the Dominican mainland.

It's not hard to appreciate the beauty of the peninsula. Perhaps the most appealing part of the whole island, this region boasts a coast lined with spectacular beaches that conform strictly to the Caribbean archetype of powdered white sand, vast banks of swaying coconut trees and transparant green-blue sea. Coconut trees, yes indeed, you can't miss them. The Saman Peninsula has the most palmtrees per km worldwide!

Away from the water, the Cordillera Saman, an imposing mountain range possessing a few spectacular waterfalls supports the peninsula, most of it penetrable only by horse. The peninsula is situated in the most sub-tropical part of the island, and (protected) fragments of humid tropical rainforest are found here.

Las Galeras

Set in a the middle of a horseshoe-shaped cove at the eastern part oft the Samaná peninsula, Las Galeras is the last village. The road litterally stops at the ocean.

Between two superb capes, Cabo Cabron in the west and Cabo Samana at the eastern side, Las Galeras is relaxing at a sweeping curve of pure white sand, upon which an almost unbelievable turquoise sea laps gently.

Between these two capes you find fantastic nature (nature reserves, mountains, El Limón waterfall) ánd seven beaches, so one for every day.

Las Galeras is an old fishermen's village stretched along the main road. This small village has managed to maintain its peaceful and timeless ambiance.

“magical, wonderfull, amazing..dreamlike place to stay !!”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2013

Best, most beautifull, even magical house I ve ever stayed in ( off all my travels over the world) ..it is build against a rock so you live with this beautifull coral stone in your livingroom..quite impressive ! One of the showers is built into a huge sandstone cave..what an incredible experience !! This place in itself is really 'zen' and gave me the stressless, relaxing experience I deserve during holidays..! The house is situated on a very quiet natural location and is great and safe for children (try the extra bedroom build on the rock with teens, they ll just love it). In four minutes walking you reach one of the amazing white sand beaches..and you ' re only a five minutes away from the busy villagecenter.Great experience, I'll be back !!!

“Heaven on earth”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2013

La cueva is the place to be to enjoy all the beautiful things The DominicanRepublic had to offer. We loved the beautifull beaches, the friendly atmosphere in the town and the relaxing evenings in the wonderfull house. A must-do for anyone looking for heaven on earth!
