Las Galeras, Samana Province, Dominican Republic
La Cueva is a unique eco-house in Dominican Republic a three minutes walk from a magnificent beach.

The house is constructed around a rock formation and there is unique cave integrated in the house as a bathroom.

The house is spacious and has a zen athmosphere, has 2 terraces & is situated in a lucious green and safe residential area, just a few steps away from different beaches and the centre of town.

La Cueva is a nature house. We designed this little pearl to have a direct contact with nature and the surrounding tropical environment. This means we used a lot of 'earthly' materials (concrete, stones, wood, rocks). We build the house around a rock formation, where a big cave ('a little cathedral') is restaurated, integrated in the house and is used as a totally unique bathroom.

The house is very big and it's a true experience to stay there! The house is build around a cave and the bathroom is truly spectacular (it made me think of the luxurious cave hotel in Matera in Southern Italy). The bedrooms have mosquito nets and you hear the soothing sounds of nature when you are lying in bed. The...

About the neighbourhood
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.
