About this listing

Greetings!
I was born in Samana Bay and I’ve been leaving here since. This is the place where my children grew up and this is where I want to grow old.
Las Galeras is a small fisher’s village that radiates the charm of the Dominican Republic; an exotic, unpretentious, comfortably safe outpost that has yet to be "discovered" with great beaches, friendly locals, scant nightlife but a few good restaurants.
The perfect spot if you are not planning to spend your vacations in the country's string of all-inclusive resorts.
Your Bungalow has two bedrooms with full beds; there is an extra twin bed for extra guests. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a nice little bar so you can cook while having some national drinks. The bathroom and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and the house is equipped with high speed WIFI.
The beach is a five minute slow walk but it can last longer if you stop by Las Galeras’ renowned restaurants on the way.
We are a lost village but with lots transportation, you can be in the country’s capital in 3 and a half hour, visit all of our best beaches by boat, horseback riding or with our local motorcycle taxis, the famous motoconchos.

Las Galeras is way more than a destination; it’s a state of mind. So if you are ready to enjoy yourself please stop by.

Bichita.

My husband, four year old daughter & I stayed here for a week. I highly recommend the house for anyone wanting to experience Las Galeras. The house is central to all that the village has to offer. Great pizza at the end of the street at L'Aventura & morning croissants for breakfast at La Marseille just across the way. Several times we walked to Playita to enjoy a fantastic fish lunch at Isabel's and the beach there is great for kids. Charlotte was the perfect host, offering good tips & when the whole village has a water shortage she sorted an emergency supply out for us straight away (despite her being in London at the time). She was always available to answer any questions & help. This is a first-class Airbnb experience.

Me and my 2 friends stayed 5 nights at Bichitas and Charlottes house which was great. The bungalow is very close to restaurants and bars and just a few minutes walk away from the beach. Charlotte was a great host, even though we haven´t met her. As a warm welcome there were fruits on the counter and we also had beach towels, we could use. Charlotte was always reachable when we needed something. I highly recommend staying there!

Bichera and Charlotte's place was incredible, just as described. We felt very much at home and had an amazing time there with friends. They welcomed us with fresh flowers and tropical fruit, so we knew we were off to a good start. Charlotte is the best Airbnb host I've seen! She was very quick to reply my messages and not only that, she also has a very positive energy that you can feel in the house. We also really liked Fina! I would recommend this place for a family or group of friends. Also there is so much to see in Las Galeras and the house is the perfect place to charge up your energy.

Bichita and Charlotte's place was very tidy when we arrived. They were out of town, but their neighbor, Luca, welcomed me when we arrived, and he was very helpful in giving me directions to beaches, places to eat, and buy groceries. Bichita and Charlotte had left fruit for us upon arrival. While it was a very hot time of year to travel to Las Galeras, we were comforted by having mosquito nets over the beds and screens on the windows. We had breakfast each morning across the street at Marseillaise - great french baquettes and crepes. Luca gave us directions to La Rincon beach where we spent the day - spectacular beach! Bichita and Charlotte's place is charming!

Bichita's bungalow is a lovely place to stay in Las Galeras! Super friendly and responsive hosts, and a perfect base to explore the surrounding beaches. We wish we had been able to stay longer. With nearby markets, it was nice to cook in the house, though there are several restaurants around if you want to eat out. It was easy to find (just ask anyone in town), quiet, and easy to walk to La Playita, take a motochoncho to Playa Rincon. Sipping expertly-made mojitos watching the sunset on the beach - one of the best parts of vacation.

Bichita: I am an energetic woman living in a very quiet place that enjoys early morning yoga sessions in front of the sea, dancing Bachata with friends and meeting new people that can bring an extra spark to my life.

Charlotte: And I'm her daughter, currently doing my Masters in London and trying to get involved in as many projects as possible (eartships, TEDx, mindful meditation, yoga, ...).Looking forward to meet everyone, specially those who can help me find new ways of participating to change and bring enlightenment to my everyday life!
