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 of the specific condo unit that 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 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.

Awesome condo in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time trying a condo. We have always stayed at all inclusive resorts. I don't think we'll ever go the all inclusive route again! First of all, this condo is in a breathtaking location. Right on the beach is not an over statement. When we walked in, we were blown away that the pictures we had seen on VRBO were actually accurate!

The grounds were very nice, and the pool was beautiful. Always plenty of chairs for everyone. Never had to wake up early to put a towel on a chair! The beach was one of the nicest we had ever been on. No sharp rocks.

We went on an excursion to Saona island, which I would recommend to everyone. The most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Even walked on the beach where they filmed Pirates of the Caribbean 2! Gorgeous. Amazing snorkeling!

Denyse's helpful information gave us the courage to try renting a car, which we had never done in a foreign country before, and I would recommend it. We shopped for our own groceries on arrival, and also went out to eat at several restaurants, so you definitely need a car. Our favorite restaurant was Jellyfish.

The condo itself was great. Clean, well stocked with anything you might need. The master bed was the most comfortable we have ever had away from home. I loved having a washer and dryer right there in the condo. We definitely overpacked. The air conditioning worked great. Plenty of hot water. The balcony is huge compared to the kind you get in a resort. We spent lots of time there playing cards, listening to music, and enjoying the view. The furniture on the balcony is very nice and comfortable.

I would recommend having a local cook come in and cook you a meal. It was delicious, and plenty of leftovers.

Overall, the best vacation we've ever had. If your looking for go, go, go, this may not be the condo for you. If you like to relax, have plenty of peace and quiet, and are willing to drive a little to get back to the great restaurants, then you couldn't find a better place to stay!

Living beside the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Living in a land-locked city, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed being next door to the ocean for a month. We had a million dollar view of water, palms, and sand plus the constant sound of the surf. The condo was spacious and comfortable; the staff was helpful; the grounds were well maintained; and the pool was huge, great for lap swimming. Only drawback: because Uvero Alto is far from the good grocery stores, we had to rent a car in Punta Cana.

Postcard Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this place. The beach was amazing. The interior was clean and perfect. The deck was so nice to sit on, and just relax. The beds were comfortable. The pool was clean and quiet. My wife and kids are begging me to take them back here.

Close to a local market, and surfing at a nearby beach.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Even we experienced small difficulties finding the right turn on the road as came in the dark (entrance road is literally BETWEEN entrance to Excellence EL Carmen and entrance to Sirenis resort) everything else was just perfect. Quite place, almost all the time we were alone in the pool. The beach allows you to take a long walks to enjoy different beaches. Legendary Macao beach is only a short drive from it. The apartment is spacious and well equipped.

Amazing experience once again 2nd time around

  • 5 of 5

For the second time visiting Las Dunes condo. We stayed for 8 days and It was perfection once again. From the condo to the beach and all the kind staff. We are a family with 4 young kiddos. The owner has a heart of gold who truly cares about our visit. The condo is spotless and beach is clean. We will be returning again next summer. This is every persons dream vacation with lots of surrounding fun things to do and eat. Very safe also. Thank you Denyse again for a wonderful condo you have. We love the DR.
