About Jim Novack
We used to live in San Francisco and for the last 12 years have been living in Madrid, Spain and we purchased our dream vacation home in Samaná to spend our summer vacations with our friends, but would like to make it available for other families that we are sure will enjoy it at other times! This last summer we spent 2 months there and had several visitors with kids that absolutely loved it. You should count on renting a 4x4 vehicle to visit the many beaches in the area, but that some of them have challenging access!
Jim Novack purchased this House in 2010
Why Jim Novack chose Samana
Samaná is still a perfect mixture of tropical paradise and civilized comforts, we have good friends in the Dominican Republic that recommended this luxury development for its quality, security and absolute perfect location to boat, fish and lounge on the virgin beaches of white powder and azure ocean water.

The house was beautiful, as was the entire property! Everyone at the resort was friendly and helpful. The food at the resorts was great and inexpensive. The Martina was an excellent cook. And was a great hostess .
beautiful house; but so many things: the dishwasher dint Work, the masterbedroom tv either; lea King in the kitchen etc; they must to do maintain to the house
What an amazing view! Lovely house, totally enjoyed staying in it. The showers were a bit confusing (using the hand-held vs. the rain-shower head) but no big deal we finally figured out. TIP: Turn on the hot water heater as SOON as you get there, then it'll be nice and ready for you the following morning. We were also told by another guest that there is a free boat at 11am every day that takes you to a nearby private beach.
Great accommodations and resort amenities
The only downfall of this place is there is no beach on site. There is a nearby island that you can reach a great beach with a 20 minute boat ride, however! Other gorgeous beaches are about an hour drove, but well worth it. This is an out of the normal tourist route place which was perfect for us.
Will Definitely Return
After spending 4 nights in this beautiful villa, our only regret is that we could not stay any longer. The villa is comfortable, spacious, well decorated, and well situated. You can lounge in the patio pool at the villa, or go for a short walk to the large infinity pool at the resort. You have access to a modern gym. You are a short boat ride to Cayo Levantado. It is the perfect vacation to relax and spend time with friends or family. Martina, was a skilled chef and took good care of us. We enjoyed her company. We hope to come back soon. Thanks Jim for your quick response to our reservations and your professionalism.
Whale watching from January to March!
