About Claire Rock

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

Why Claire Rock chose Samaná Province

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Best own Private Village in Samana

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay on a strategic location with all you need this is the place.

The Apartment is great well stock with all you need.

We had a great time. Definitely need a car if you want to move around.

Downtown Samana is about 25 minutes from the condo, and Las Galeras about 15.

The beach is really a private beach with nice clear sand, however you can not get into the water to snorkel due to some rocks and water moving strongly. You can enjoy about 3 meters from the shore to the water, not bad, but don't expect a typical sandy beach of RD that you can snorkel or swim into.

The pool, excellent, super clean. Look like your own private pool.

The manager Coco was always ready to help as well the owners who keep in touch with us all the time.

I definitely recommend this place, I would say the Best on the area.

Owner's Response: Sebastian, Thank you for submitting a review and help future renters make a decision. I am thrilled you had a good time at The Cove and enjoyed your stay at my condo. I am sorry the water current was strong as it normally is very calm. Thanks again for visiting the Samana area, I hope you and your family will return to visit soon.

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I have ever rented a home instead of a hotel. Very glad I did. From the first email I sent Claire, she responded right away. The Grounds Manager, Coco was great. We were in constant communication. He even assisted my family in planning a trip, we brought him along, to Salto del Limon, YOU MUST VISIT Salto del Limon. The grounds are great, security amazing and the view is superb. Only Con is lack of typical restaurants. In the Galeras you will find some but nothing amazing!!! Enjoy...

Loved our trip to the DR

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation and the Cove was a great place to stay. Claire was very helpful in advice before the trip and Coco was very helpful while we were there. He helped us find some locals to take us to Playa Fronton & Playa Rincon by boat and it was really fun. We met several neighbors at the pool and they were kind enough to make restaurant & tour recommendations too. Carmen, the housekeeper, made dinner for us twice and it was fantastic. Las Galeras is a short drive away and was our favorite town. If you want to sit on the beach and have someone bring you fruity drinks while you surf the internet, this isn't the place for you. If you want to explore the DR and disconnect for a while, definitely go to Samana & Las Galeras. (Although I will say that I was able to do a couple WebEx meetings from the condo and the internet connection was fine. We didn't turn the TV on so I can't say anything about that.)

Perfect Spot for Our Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed here for a week and it couldn't have been more perfect! Our kids are ages 5, 7 and 9, and they loved the pool and the beach. My wife and I loved exploring the local beaches and eating at the local restaurants, but by the end of our trip we couldn't get the kids out of the pool. The pool has a zero-entry slope that was great for our 5-year-old, and our 7-year-old loved playing leap frog on the built-in bar stools. The other residents/guests were very helpful and gave great tips on where to visit and eat. The Texaco gas station just up the road had almost everything we needed in terms of food and drink for the condo. Overall it was a great trip! Our favorite stops were La Playita, Playa Rincon and El Monte Azul restaurant. All the locals were very friendly and always ready to help give directions or interact with our family. The condo was clean, cool and well-stocked - it had everything we needed for making meals and relaxing between pool/beach runs. Coco and the other staff at the condo were always helpful and it was reassuring that there was always somebody around that could answer our questions and greet us with a smile and a wave. This was a great vacation and we definitely recommend this property!

Whale Watching Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely experience staying at The Cove and visiting the surrounding areas. The condo is located very close to both Samana for Whale Watching and to Galeras and the amazingly beautiful Playa Rincon. On our last day we chose to stay around The Cove and relax poolside. We spotted a whale from shore and watched for another 30 minutes as it went by. The condo itself could use a few upgrades, but everything is in working order. Claire was very gracious and flexible with us about checking out leisurely on our last day. All in all a fabulous weekend!

Owner's Response: Allison, I am glad you had a nice time at The Cove with your family. I am always happy to accommodate renters whenever I can, so late check out on your last day was no problem since the condo was not rented that day. I hope you will return to visit soon. Claire
