Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Punta Cana - Las Dunas

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Front Line Beach Condo

As seen on House Hunters International this true front line unit is right on Playa Palmera beach, part of the Coconut Coast. If you weren’t relaxing on your spacious, second floor balcony you would be standing in the sand with nothing but palm trees and breaking surf in front of you with gorgeous infinity and lap pools to the side.

If you enjoy staying at the end of the road in paradise this House Hunters International model unit boasts breathtaking Caribbean vistas with completely unobstructed views. Watch the surf break from your 300 square foot balcony, Living & Dining rooms, Master bedroom and even the kitchen sink! Throw the screens open to fall asleep surrounded by the sound of waves.

This richly detailed, 1722 square foot unit, has two Master suites. See palm trees from each and every room. Sip cocktails on your 300 square foot private balcony while grilling dinner. Most importantly, being truly front line, you will feel the ocean breeze day and night. AC is provided but we believe you will soon fall in love with and prefer the palm tree rustling sea winds.

This exclusive, gated community of only 30 units, has a well cared for private beach so there is no need to stress over finding a beach chaise or a shady spot. 24/7, not really necessary, security means constant peace of mind. In fact, there is nothing to do but endlessly relax. Enjoy watching a sky full of stars.

Inside you will find a fully equipped apartment with AC, ceiling fans, 2 separate showers, full size washer & dryer, gas stove, oven, fridge, bottled water dispenser, 42” TVs with Cable, DVD/BlueRays, radio/CD player, alarm clocks, security safe, microwave, cookware, fully loaded kitchen and bar dishes, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, waffle maker, toaster, hair dryers, iron & ironing board, linens, towels/beach towels, children’s sand toys, board games, video, music & book libraries. FREE fiber optic cable WiFi provided inside the unit. Also free WiFi by the pool. Free MagicJack phone calls to USA and Canada.

Experience the scenic 24 mile drive from the Punta Cana airport to Uvero Alto on the new 4 lane highway which makes the drive fast, easy and safe by rental car or arranged pick up to arrive at a place full of comforts and few distractions so much quieter than overcrowded Bavaro yet near to a convenience store, bank, artisan souvenirs, restaurants and a water park. You can choose to never leave the beach or head back toward the casinos and night life if you prefer.

If you are looking for more than lounging with a good book and snorkeling right outside your door the onsite manager can arrange golfing, dolphin swims, boating, fishing, dune buggies, windsurfing, para-sailing, horseback riding, massage, shopping trips and more.

This is a NO Smoking unit.

About Denyse Gantenbein

We are a Canadian and Swiss couple who live in the United States but love to travel whenever we can manage it.

Denyse Gantenbein purchased this condo in 2012

Why Denyse Gantenbein chose Punta Cana

We love the friendly Dominican people. They are always so happy and fun. We have seldom met such consistently nice people in all of our travels.

What makes this condo unique

Las Dunas is small and personalized. Everyone is friendly and social yet it is quiet enough to have the beach or pool all to your self at times.

'Ab Fab' vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fabulous 2 1/2 weeks at your lovely condo, thanks so much for sharing it with us! (I almost didn't write a review since I wanted to keep this treasure a secret!) I have rented several properties throughout the Caribbean, and this one is one of the best. You have thought of just about everything one needs to make this place a "home away from home", (except home does not offer such spectacular views of the sea, beach and palm trees )...and the pictures online don't do this place justice!

Not only did I have a much needed peaceful and relaxing vacation (I practically had the beach to myself during the entire trip!), but also made life long friends with Rafael and his very "British" family.

Additional shout out goes to the wonderful staff at Las Dunes (Damero, Marcia etc), all of whom were very welcoming and helpful. Like others who have posted before, I did not want the hassle of driving, so arranged for Rafael to pick me up (and drop me off) from the airport, and we stopped off for groceries on the way to the condo. A tip for fellow travelers, do stock up on everything you need for the duration of your trip including plenty of UHT milk cartons and bread (which can be frozen and thaws out perfectly), since additional trips to the grocery store will cost you between $50.00 - 80.00 each way. I cooked most of the time, since I am a vegetarian, however there were plenty of good seafood restaurants close by for those who prefer not to cook.

I would highly recommend this property, both beach and pool areas as well as the grounds were immaculate, and the condo was just perfect. I would give this place 5 star +++ if I could!

Denyse, thanks again, and I will speak to you soon about booking your "ab fab" place again this year.

Christmas in the DR

  • 5 of 5

We are honored to write a review of the VRBO accommodations and experience we had from December 23 to December 31, 2014 because EVERYTHING was fantastic! Denyse provided us with loads of information pre-trip in order for us to be prepared when we arrived. Her communication was excellent. The Las Dunas 2A unit was simply breathtaking. All the furniture and appliances were gorgeous and in perfect working order. The condo included every item a family could want or need while visiting the Dominican Republic and Las Dunas. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, glassware, a variety of small appliances and a full water cooler. The stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, washer and dryer were clean, easy to use and in perfect working order. The furniture was comfortable and stylish. The beds were first rate and contributed to a restful vacation. There were beach toys, outdoor radio, and beach towels for us to enjoy. The beach and grounds of the complex were immaculate. The views were amazing. The manager, Marcia, was helpful, knowledgeable and always available to answer our questions. The other staff (maintenance and security) were so kind and friendly, it was hard to say good bye. The pool was picture perfect as was the beach. The weather was hot (80’s) and sunny almost everyday. Even when it rained, the sun had a way of peeking out at some point in the day. We dined at the nearby Seafood Paradise and Kucara Mucara both of which were outstanding. Fresh red snapper caught hours before it was grilled was melt-in-your-mouth perfection. . We also dined at restaurants recommended by condo owners we met by the pool including Citrus, Jellyfish, and Hurican Café. Our family agrees we rate five stars on all our accommodation and dining experiences. We spent a day on an adventurous excursion, which included a history lesson about the DR and a Zip Line experience. We walked along the beach and on the sidewalks every morning for exercise, which was very safe and enjoyable. We shopped for groceries at the Super Pola near the airport and near highway 3. We rented a car, which is a must in order to grocery shop and get around. Our 21, 18 and 14 yr old children all proclaimed “this was our best family vacation”. We are hoping to return to the DR and Las Dunas in the future.

Mark and Jennifer O.

Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Ok, I must go into detail so when your reading this you ​truly understand what to expect. My husband and I have always been all inclusive ​vacationeers but I always had a tough time spending the money. So after reading the reviews at your place and going back and forth with you with all of our questions I was impressed, still a little cautious but my gut told me to give it a shot. We had asked Rafael to pick us up from the airport & drop us off instead of renting our own car since there were so many mixed reviews about driving your own car. I give Rafael an A+ for not only being on time​,​ the experience at the grocery store and the helping us out with all the questions we had during our entire stay. When arriving at the condo it was everything as stated online from a FANTASTIC ocean front view, clean amenities, infact maybe even a little bit nicer then our all inclusive stays. We walked the beach in each direction for miles and miles each way and loved the fact that we had our own space and time to take it in versus crowded beaches & too many people and deadlines of when to be ready for meals & etc. Every morning we made our own breakfast, hung out at the beach, grabbed a quick snack during the day at the room and then had dinner at a one of the restaurants every evening. WE couldn't of asked for anything more. When you pay for all inclusive's you usually only use a small fraction of their amenities & still pay for it and any extras such as excursions and spa services cost extra. Well I give your place a five star *****! My husband and I both said that we wlll be back and would highly recommend your place to our friends and family.

Thanks,

Cheryl & John

"Every hour is a happy hour!"

  • 5 of 5

"Every hour is a happy hour!" This was the theme of our stay and your condo absolutely reflects this. There is no shortage of things to do and the hosts ensured us that there is boring minute during our stay. Everything was perfect! Until next time, cheers!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a week at this beach front condo and this will be a hard one to beat. The beach is a few steps from the front door. The surroundings are perfect, lots of coconuts and palm trees. The condo is clean and well maintained. The pool is good spot to relax. If you're looking for the perfect vacation spot look no further!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Late in writing a review, wife and I took our two kids (13 and 16) on spring break. I can't really say anything more about this place than what has already been mentioned, we thought it was great and would go back for sure. This unit sits right on the beach, the beach is perfect, the pool perfect the property well maintained and the unit was just as described.

The only thing I would add is that you are in the DR, not the US/Canada it is a third world country so keep that in mind. I was also advised not to rent a car and attempt to drive while there, I did just that and was glad I did. I will admit that driving in the DR is an adventure, not many rules of the road but the DR people are use to that so it's not a big deal. I would be more worried driving around Chicago any day of the week than I would driving from the airport to this unit.
