Minutes from Playa Rincon, ranked among the top 10 beaches in the world!

El Frances, Samana Province

If this apartment is booked, please see my other two apartments on VRBO #'s 316323 and 816267. For 10 years I have been renting to many satisfied repeat customers. You can read a lot of great reviews at 316323. They are all at the Cove, a small group of beach front, ocean view apartments, just 200 feet from the ocean. This modern apartment serves as your home base from which you can explore the peninsula. Arrange deep sea diving and sport fishing excursions with The Dive Academy. You can snorkel at some of the most beautiful beaches, including Playa Rincon, Playa Las Galeras, El Valle, and Playa Fronton. Seasoned scuba divers can explore local shipwrecks.

Come see the humpback whales breach out of the water, from January to March, each year, when they come to mate and have their offspring!!!

In between you and the ocean is the pool, with a swim up bar. Grill local fish on the charcoal barbeque, or stay inside and cook in the full kitchen. It features a view of Samana bay, and a private beach, only a few steps away.

Since I own two other apartments, I can accommodate groups of up to 12 people.

    Patrick was very good to communicate with, both prior to our stay, as well as during. The Cove's beach was ideal.

    Communication with Pat was essential for me. He responded in a timely and clear manner. I was very happy to see Coco again and was a little surprised that he remembered myself, my wife and kids. The Apartment and kitchen is well furnished with all necessities. There is even a BBQ grill on the porch. Coco keeps the place and pool immaculately clean. The pictures that you see online of the pool and small beach are exactly as it is in person. The neighborhood is a small community, but had everything that I needed, such as; rice, oil, meats, vegetables, cleaning supplies, restaurants, beaches, gasoline, boating, four wheeling, zip lining and other activities. Cell phone and internet service is below average. Great place to live life naturally without the interference of too much technology. I am pretty sure I will be renting from Pat again in the future.

    Beautiful and so peaceful

    The Cove was spectacular. We arrived to find a very clean condo with bottle water already there which was great after a long trip in. The staff who works around the property where very friendly and so helpful. On our first morning we woke to have a cold showers due to an issue with the water on demand but Coco fixed us up in no time, he is so helpful with anything. Carmon who is on the property was great as well and went to get us beverages while we settled in our first day. We had lobster delivered to our door on several occasions you just have to ask about it. We meet several owners who where in and other renters everyone was great and very friendly. The facilities from inside to outside was so nice and relaxing. Around the Condo you can find anything you really want from small grocery stores, gas, and little stores to get your beverages. Patrick was great emailing us to make sure we arrived with no issues and supplying information on things to do around Samana before we arrived. If you need anything from a massage on the beach, to an adventure out all you have to do is mention it to Coco and all can be arranged. Very worry free vacation thanks to Patrick and all the staff of the Cove...

    great location

    We loved staying at The Cove. The setting is amazing! Unfortunately, the condo was not as well maintained as the complex. It seemed as if it hadn't been used for quite a while. The floors had not been recently swept and mopped and we felt grit under our feet as we entered even though we left our shoes by the door. The towels smelled of mold. The barbeque grill was pocked with rust and looked as if it hadn't been cleaned for a long time. We had to ask for a ladder to be removed from a bedroom. I can't imagine why it would have been left there. The closets were not well organized. The place just needed some love. Maybe it would help if the owner spent a few nights there.

    The apt that I rented from Patrick was absolutely fantastic! It was absolute paradise, absolutely beautiful. The pictures I took look like post cards. It was super comfortable very well kept. Everything was amazing! We felt safe with it being a gated residential and security being there 24/7. Coco was great, very welcoming and very attentive. Made my family and I feel right at home. Patrick was great giving suggestions as to some points of interest. We visited Playa Rincon amazing they also have a man grove and we also did El salto de Limon. Both close to the apt. There is also a close store where you can get minor things such as soda beer chips etc.
