I am still having withdrawals that we had to leave! Just seeing the pictures on the property listing makes me sad that we aren't there anymore. The description is incredibly accurate - the view is amazing and having the doors during the day open makes for an incredible ocean breeze with the relaxing sound of waves. Having the water cooler with a 5 gallon jug of purified water was a life saver - we filled a few water bottles every day before going on outings. The washer and dryer were SO NICE. We would throw our beach towels into the dryer as soon as we got home and the maid would do other laundry. We came home to the US with NO dirty laundry. How incredible is that?!
I know when I scour VRBO to look for places to stay, its hard to decipher things about the pictures shown. To help you, I'll add some comments about things in the pictures on this listing. The coffee table in the living room was huge and we had all of our games for the kids, trip info, books, etc on there. We used it heavily. The master bedroom is really like triple the size of what the picture seems to portray, so we had a large space for our suitcases. Both bedrooms have huge closet spaces too. So we had tons of space to spread out.
We flew into Santiago (STI airport code) which is a longer drive than the closer airport (~1.5 hours). However, flying into that airport was much better airfare for us so that is why we did that.
The typical day was sleep until 8:30am, wake up and relax while maid cooked breakfast. Then, eat breakfast on the balcony and stare at the ocean. Head out for some kind of adventure. Come back around 5pm (sunset ~6pm in the winter) and enjoy just hanging out at the condo the rest of the evening. We relaxed, read, played games, and enjoyed TV-free time as a family.
Some of the local adventures we did - ATV "buggies" in Puerto Plata, horseback riding tour in Puerto Plata, and the cable car Telefrico also in Puerto Plata. 27 Waterfalls park is a must do - you don't have to go through a tour company either. We went to many beaches - Cofresi, Costembar, Cabarete, and Sosua. Our favorite was probably Sosua as we went on a banana boat and did a fantastic snorkeling tour from there. Massages on the beach, some shopping, eating out, etc. We took our girls to Ocean World - expensive to swim with dolphins, but our girls will remember that forever.
Absolutely LOVED our stay. Like I said, we are truly sad we had to leave. Would stay here again without a doubt!!
I was one of three ladies who had the good fortune of renting this location for 2 weeks. Everything listed in the description was spot on!!
The view was beautiful, the pool quiet and serene, the waterfall in the pool blocking out any noise and leading to a feeling of tranquility. With all the rain we had it was some times difficult to tell if it was the waterfall or another shower but I did enjoy watching the rain as much as watching the ocean.
If cleanliness is next to Godliness then I must have been in church. The apartment was very very clean, the stairwells and the grounds also well kept. The day we left the maid removed everything from the cupboards, drawers and fridge to give it all a good cleaning. No detail was to small.
The maid/cook was FANTASIC. We enjoyed her famous lasagna, her coconut fish, goat stew (even for breakfast). With her help I was able to pick up more Spanish, more then the 3 previous visits to the D.R. Between the dictionaries and Google translate we found the few words we were struggling with.
Thank you for providing a very comprehensive booklet that included everything we needed to know. I can't think of anything that was missing. The extra bonus was having a local cell phone. We may not have used it much but we were able to contact some local friends rather then walking up the hill and knocking at the door.
The complex was well guarded and I felt safe at all times. When a friend came to the door he was accompanied by the security staff to ensure he was a welcomed guest.
Anyone booking this location should know that the small market 1 block over (Juan's) has better prices for some items then the large Supermarket in town. Some of the items I compared were alcohol, cranberry juice and Pringles. These items were 30 to 50 pesos less at the local market. If you pay in U.S $ he will give you change back in U.S $ and his exchange rate for dollars to pesos are as good if not better than the banks. Go early during the week if you want some fresh buns as rich as croissants.
Looking for something different to do.....head over to Ocean World Wed night for an evening of karaoke and you may catch one of the Dominican's best bachata dancers. Buy a bottle and mix, sit down and get to know some new people.
Hope to get back. I think I made a friend of the maid. Hope she enjoyed the music I played on my laptop for her to sing and dance to while we were out. Hope she is OK and safe with the flooding.
My family had the pleasure of vacationing at this wonderful property for 10 days! The property exceeded our expectations and delivered all that was promised and then some. For starters the view from the porches were simply breathtaking! We so enjoyed sitting out there and hearing the ocean and feeling the pleasant breeze, both mornings and nights. We enjoyed the pool and the quietness of the property. The open and spacious layout provided more than enough room for us to be free.
Yurbi was such a viable asset to the property!. Her stellar service in preparing scrumptious meals, her willingness to help and to serve was remarkable. She made us feel so at home. Her attention to details in housekeeping and maintenance of the condo was incredible. We were able to communicate and build a sweet friendship.
This was the best property that our family has stayed and we would highly recommend staying here! We ate at the restaurant Chris & Maddy's numerous times and enjoyed our meals. We frequented the local store as well and everyone that crossed our paths, were so willing to help us!
Johanne, thank you so much for your helpfulness in making our vacation memorable. We appreciated the attention to making your home feel so much like our own!
Thank you Johanne for sharing your piece of paradise with us. Although Johanne is a long distance away, she is a very hands-on owner. She makes sure that groceries are bought, and food is prepared for our first night. This was truly appreciated as our flight was delayed and it was dark by the time we arrived at the condo. The next morning we were thrilled with the “million dollar” view from the balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. You can even hear the waves lapping to shore from the balcony. Incredible! We still wish we were there!
Yurbi, the maid, is extremely pleasant, efficient and a great cook. We stayed for two weeks and she served breakfast on the balcony which was always a highlight. When requested, she also prepared dinners ahead that just needed reheating. We can vouch for her lasagna, chicken and fish in coconut sauce.
The condo is beautiful, quiet, clean and fully equipped. We would rate this a 5 star accommodation with great linens, towels and comfortable beds.
My family of 5 which includes 2 year old twins and a 4 year old had an amazing stay at this condo! To begin, Johanne was extremely helpful and kind to answer all of our questions before our stay and checked in to make sure all was well during our stay. She went above and beyond our expectations to ensure we had the cribs for our twins and the groceries were done when we arrived. Having a house cleaner/cook was an added bonus and much appreciated. It's amazing to come in from the beach and/or pool and have food prepared for you waiting to be consumed. And it's an added bonus when you have hungry kids wanting food right away. It's all done for you! If you are contemplating between this place and another do not hesitate to book with Johanne. You will not be disappointed.
We made memories that will last a lifetime. Now, it's time for you to do the same!
I know you thought I forgot about you Johanne, but who can forget such a memorable experience. First of all, If you are considering this condo for your stay, STOP THINKING and take the plunge. Johanne takes all the guesswork out of making your decision as she is very knowledgeable and has everything you need laid out for you. The property is cozy, comfortable and a stones throw away from the ocean. The balcony view seen in the photograph was even more spectacular than I had imagined. The maid was very friendly and the homemade dishes she prepared were absolutely delicious. We had the opportunity to meet Johanne and enjoyed the conversation and time spent together. I definitely intend to return and am confident my stay will be as pleasurable as the last. Thank you Johanne.
