About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Front Line Beach Condo

We invite you to share our beautiful home set right in the sand of Playa Palmera Beach the jewel of Punta Cana's Coconut Coast. Live the luxury and breathtaking views you'll never tire of at the specific condo unit which was toured and exclaimed over on House Hunters International. See why this location was the winner.

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 and gorgeous infinity and lap pools to the side.

Enjoy staying at the end of the road in paradise with breathtaking Caribbean vistas. Watch the surf break from your 300 square foot balcony, Living & Dining rooms, Master bedroom, even the kitchen sink right here! Throw the glass doors open to fall asleep surrounded by the sound of waves.

Our richly detailed, 1722 square foot home, has two Master suites. See palm trees from each and every room. Grill dinner while sipping cocktails surrounded by palm trees and ocean. 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 offering sun or a quiet, 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, 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 drive from the Punta Cana airport 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 yet near to a convenience store, bank, artisan souvenirs, restaurants and a water park. You can choose to never leave the beach or head 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.

You will never find a friendlier home away from home. Let our vacation home be your home for the perfect get away experience.

(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 Uvero Alto

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.

Wonderful on-the-sand condo.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this property. The photos are accurate, but they don't come near to the real beauty found there. Everything you need is provided, including the sound of the wind and waves every evening.

While it is easy to just relax and stay put, we recommend renting a car and exploring Higuey, and Play Boca Chica (especially on a Sunday). Stop by one of the many road side stands and buy the sweetest pineapples, mangoes, and bananas. Yum!!

Denyse's info packet that she sends a week or two prior answered most of our questions: when we had other questions, she was very quick to respond.

It doesn't get any better than this!

Beautiful quiet beach, lovely swimming pool, clean and comfortable condo with easy logistics. Combined with a few days of the hustle and bustle of Santo Domingo it was the perfect vacation.

Beautiful Condo On Beautiful Beach - Don't Miss Out On This Property

  • 5 of 5

Our 7 night stay went by far too fast! The condo is beautiful, the beach is beautiful, the weather was perfect. We stayed March 13 - March 20th. We used the George Foreman grill and had perfectly cooked chicken. The kitchen had everything that we needed other than a whisk. The outdoor furniture on the condo patio was so comfortable. The sun shades on the patio were perfect for the morning sun. We rented a car and had no trouble getting around. We went to the Rum Factory and taste tested every flavor. 2 bottles made it back to Montana safely in our checked bag. We went on a catermaran snorkeling and to Sonoma Island the snorkeling was a joke and it is definitely for the younger crowd. We went parasailing it was fun & a little sketchy due to the dingy to boat transfer and how the parasailing is all in one area they are literally on top of one another. It definitely added some adrenaline to the parasailing. Definitely get your groceries at Jumbo not at the small store by the airport. It was hard to find all of the ingredients that we needed for our meals for our week long stay. For example: they had no breakfast sausage and only two packages of bacon which was 75% fat etc. Jumbo had everything we needed. We struggled communicating it seemed like even though they understood they said that they didn't. We've traveled a lot of places and we've always felt welcome and appreciated unfortunately in the DR they don't portray that you are welcome or appreciated. Lots of dirty looks and mean faces even at the Downtown Mall. Our time spent at the condo and beach erased all of the negative(s). This condo and beach is definitely where you want to stay if you want to feel like you own a huge chunk of private beach. There were usually only 7-9 people in our beach area at any time other than the resorts on both sides come to this beach area to get cell phone reception. Those people can be a bit annoying & security needs to be a bit stricter keeping them off the actual Las Dunas beach area. It seemed as if the other resorts told their guests to GO to Las Dunas for cell phone reception.

Owner's Response: I'm happy that you enjoyed our apartment. We like the Supermercado National near the airport for it's fresh butcher counter with great Black Angus steaks and fresh tropical juices made in house. The Jumbo (Walmart type) store is large and can stock a lot. One year my husband worked in 19 countries so we've met a lot of people but the Domincans won our hearts with their unending niceness, politeness and happiness. After six years of shopping in a dozen hardware stores for the most obscure items without speaking two words of Spanish we have had nothing but smiles and constant helpfulness so I don't know what could possibly have happened when you went to the mall. The resort East of us provides a 'password free' strong signal wifi for their guests while the resort farther West up the beach from us is the only resort on the entire coast too cheap to provide free wifi for their guests who walk down to steal the unprotected signal from our neighbor. We are not providing it. If only the world was a perfect place where people didn't cheat! Every inch of beach in the DR up to 60 feet from the water is public property so anyone can walk on it but the lounge chairs are private property so the guards can legally only keep people from sitting on their chairs. So if you feel like walking on any other resort's beach lounge chair area you are entitled to do so despite any guard's look but I can't imagine why you would want to leave our emptier space for a horrible crowd and I'd rather walk with my toes in the water's edge anyway.

Absolute paradise...

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier staying at Denyse's place at Uvero Alto beach. The view took our breath away every day and it was so quiet and peaceful. Funny how everyone from the big resorts stopped to take pictures on this beach because it's so lovely and secluded and not crowded with a million lounge chairs and cabanas. It's a completely unspoiled view of the ocean and the palms. The condo is much bigger than I expected. So convenient to have 2.5 baths and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook if you choose to.

We hung by the pool, a little bit by the beach but it was pretty windy during our stay. I don't think it's normally this windy. We didn't have to put the AC on at all - the breeze through the condo was perfect. We loved just sitting out on the balcony and enjoying the view.

We cooked breakfast every day, had snacks during the day and went out for dinner at night. We tried Jellyfish and it was delicious. We ate at Navegante - the grilled lobster, octopus and shrimp were good...we just liked how convenient it was to walk to and the view is lovely. The beer was ice cold and they serve pina coladas in a pineapple. We ate at Capuccino Mare twice and loved it. One night we just felt like having pizza and it was great then we went back for mixed grill with meat and seafood - it was enough food for 4 people. Delicious. We also ate at the steakhouse in the Hard Rock Casino. It was very expensive but the food was nice.

We took a drive to Miches and it was so pretty. We stopped at Montana Redonda and paid $30 to go to the top of the mountain for pictures and the view. It's a pretty rough ride in the back of a pick up truck but you can always opt to ride in front. The view is spectacular!

Marcia and the staff were super helpful and very attentive for whatever we needed. We would highly recommend Denyse's place and will definitely be back. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. :)

Owner's Response: The drive West is very scenic. It's great that you headed farther up Highway 3 to see the views.
