Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Dominican Republic East

Condominium, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Spend your next vacation in a beautiful luxury third floor penthouse condo in Punta Cana. This property is located directly across a quiet street from what has been called one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world. Come see for yourself what makes the Dominican Republic and its relaxed, laid back lifestyle a favorite destination for Europeans and Americans alike.

Just 20 minutes from the Punta Cana airport, this 14-unit gated condominium community in the Los Corales / 'El Cortecito' area is within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, specialty shops, coffee shops, and public transportation.

The condo is fully furnished for your comfort, and boasts designer-style details like crown moldings, beautiful ceramic tiles, mahogany wood doors and imported Italian kitchen cabinetry.

This third floor unit has high, vaulted ceilings throughout, and ocean views from the living and dining rooms, front bedroom and terrace.

Central air conditioning is complemented by remote controlled air conditioning units in each bedroom. Towels and linens are provided.

Kitchen includes gas stove, refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans, dishes, utensils and everything you need for a comfortable stay.

For more photos of the condo, the beach and the vicinity, click on 'More Photos of the Condo and the Vicinity' which appears near the bottom of this page below the calendar.

Beach access is directly across a narrow street which passes in front of the Villa Mare community.

An early morning walk on the white powder beach with crystal clear water will reveal the sun rising over the horizon and local fishermen repairing their nets. As the day unfolds the local beach comes alive with sports activities such as parasailing, glass bottom boats, windsurfing, sailing and beach volleyball. Or relax and soak up the sun, a Presidente beer in hand.

For travelers who like to shop, it's a few minute drive to the Palma Real Shopping center or the San Juan Shopping Center full of boutiques, international restaurants, banks, a movie theater and an upscale disco where you may enjoy the Dominican rhythms of merengue and bachata.

If golf is your game, Travel and Leisure Golf Magazine has named Cap Cana, a 25 minute cab ride away, as a world class golf destination.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Right across the street from the beach and near several of my new favorite hangouts, this location is perfect. The decor is a bit dated, but is was clean and spacious. A view of the beach from the deck is an added bonus.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We went to the DR with two friends with no intent but to relax and enjoy the water. This condo is perfect. It is in a secluded area within walking distance of the water, stores, and several amazing restaurants. The on-site staff are very kind and the local contact is very helpful. The condo is on the third level with an exceptional balcony and an ocean view. You absolutely cannot beat the price.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a vacation where you don't need to worry about the little details this is it! Eugenie was extremely helpful right from arranging our transport to/from the airport, a quick stop at the grocery store, a glass bottom boat/snorkeling tour all the way to dropping off some aloe vera stems when some of our party had a little too much sun! Wende arranged for fresh water delivery, while the other convenience stores and great restaurants were a very short walk (try Citrus for amazing food!). When we arrived the complex had some difficulties with the water system, but Mark was helpful in getting this resolved quickly. Unfortunately the pool was not operating due to maintenance, so we spent more time at the beach or in the cool of the air conditioned condo. The condo is as it appears in the pictures and was very convenient with two full baths (we had two couples in our party). The condo is showing its expected wear and tear from the sea air (some corrosion spots in the kitchen and bathroom) however, it is nestled in between several resorts and with a guard at the gate is very safe. Now for a couple downsides (the only reason I rated it 4 star and not 5)...because the resorts all around reserve most of the shady beach areas (we were slightly inside of one of the resort beach areas and were asked to move over 6 feet by the resort gaurd), you are limited to spend your beach days at a place like Soles Beach Bar (nearest shady public area) and then you are expected to drink and eat there...so no bringing your own food or drinks to this area (although the food and drinks at Soles are reasonably priced and tasty). This beach bar is directly beside the market and the vendors are pushy, so be prepared to be harassed several times a day. The beach in front of this public area was a little less lovingly cared for (more sea weed washed ashore and floating in the water), but if you walk over 50 feet to in front of the resorts for swimming they keep the water and beach cleaner. One final word... do practise some basic Spanish, it will help as many of the locals do not speak English (and they appreciate your efforts!).

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed very much my stay at this apartment. It was well equipped, safe and clean with a nice view from the balcony. You can hear the ocean from the bedroom. In the morning you can jump into the small pool.The location is perfect - just cross the small street and you are right away on the beach. Shops, restaurants and changing offices are also nearby. Mark, the owner, as well as Eugenie who cares for the apartment provide a really good customer service. You can always contact them. I was very glad to be there and would like to come back soon. Thanks for everything!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the condo was as described. It was clean, comfortable and convenient. The balcony is great for outside dining and relaxing. The pool was refreshing. The community grill was a great bonus. Wende the "groundskeeper" is super helpful. Everything you would need is in walking distance. The beach is beautiful. Yes, the people selling stuff on the beach can be pushy, but they respect if you tell them no....or if you're willing to part with a couple bucks, they'll have your chairs ready for you at the beach when they see you coming. When you walk to the beach, I recommend walking past Huracan and keep walking down to Bamboo and Soles. The drinks are a little cheaper and the service a little better. We always felt safe walking around the area, even at night. Watch out for the motorcycles and drivers in general. Sometimes crossing the street was like a game of Frogger. There are some really good restaurants...we highly recommend Citrus. We ate there twice and each time is was delicious and the service was amazing...ask for Junior. Don't miss out on the fruit truck that rolls through town daily. If you like pineapple, it was best I've ever had. Now for the harsh reality.... brush up on your Spanish (or download a good app) before you go. While some people spoke some English, many did not. The electricity can go out there for no reason...not just at the condo but everywhere. It doesn't stay out for long. While it's out, there's no water in the condo since the pumps can't run, so just head to the beach. The biggest inconvenience was having to change our drink order from something frozen requiring a blender to a simple beer. Overall, the condo was a welcome change to an all-inclusive resort. It was nice to experience a little more of the culture. I would highly recommend it and the area to anyone!
