We booked here for two nights but ended up staying for four. I was taken aback by the house and views when we arrived, especially given the price (worth contacting him through his website).

Trip to the Dominican Republic was for us very welcome. We wanted to make our stay was memorable and colorful, so tried to choose the non-tourist place. Choosing a hotel at Samana, we stopped our choice at Casa de Gilles. Already on photos, we realized that this place is special. But when we arrived at the house, we had no... More

It is difficult to describe in ‘words’ the experience of being hosted by Gilles in his beautiful house. I would simply say that I travel around the world for work and there have been few places where I could completely lost time and space cognition and ‘Casa de Gilles’ is one of them. I spent two long week-ends there and... More

The house is gorgeous - set on the side of a mountain, overlooking lush greenery and the ocean. We enjoyed Maria's tasty breakfast spread every morning - fresh... More

The setting makes this house truly unique. The house is situated high up on a hill top about 5 minutes from Las Terrenas. Casa de Gilles has fantastic views, a warm atmosphere and an awesome pool.
