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.

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!

Great time at Las Dunas.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the beach. Having stayed at a resort last year in Punta Cana, we found this a refreshing change. The beach is quite, secluded, and safe. We rented a car from the complex and drove to Cap Cana and Blue Mall. Also made many trips into town. No driving issues at all. Great vacation!

Can't beat the view

  • 4 of 5

Our favorite thing about this condo was the amazing view and the large balcony to enjoy it from. Renting from Denyse allowed us to spread out a bit and enjoy an oceanfront view - both features that we could not have afforded at the resorts. The built-in shade on the beach was fantastic, and there was a constant ocean breeze so we never felt the heat. We appreciated the peaceful beach (except for the final day when a noisy chihuahua was outside) and that the vendors didn't approach our area. Inside the condo, the provided water cooler was really nice to have - no need to buy water on the way in. The washer & dryer are a bit awkward to get to behind a door in the kitchen (the propane tank is there as well), but it was great to do a couple of loads of laundry - especially the towels because there were just enough (4 beach/pool towels; 4 bath towels). It was great not to have to pack those but a few extras would be nice. Activities: We enjoyed a lot of R&R on the beach, the balcony and at the pool. We usually swim in the ocean a lot, but for much of our stay the water & beach were inundated with seaweed (all the resorts w/in walking distance had varying degrees of success trying to clear it. I'm not sure if that is seasonal or tidal or what, because it was significantly better the last two days. We tried to visit (and drove to) Ojos Indigenous Ecological Park, but when we finally found it we were told it was closed to the public. Spent a day at Playa Blanco in the Punta Cana Resort - it's $20/adult but you get that back as a credit at the restaurant/bar. The beach/water there was gorgeous and it was fun to watch the kite surfers. Also did a snorkeling excursion to Isla Catalina. The snorkeling was great, the lunch was okay, but the provided transportation to the boat and back was frustratingly inefficient. I'd recommend booking snorkeling through Marina Caribe instead - it's much closer! Spent an afternoon at Macao Beach & loved riding the waves there.

Food: We had the Dominican meal prepared for us and it was awesome and so much food! Even with my 14 & 16-year-old boys (big eaters!) we had leftovers that lasted another night & lunches. Also ate dinner twice at Jellyfish and had great meals both times. We cooked for ourselves the rest of the time.

Car: We rented online in advance but arrived at the airport to be told there were NO cars. Major hassle. Really wish we'd rented through Marcia at Las Dunas originally!

Owner's Response: It sounds like you had a 5 star experience while in our home. I can see how arriving on December 24 could pose a problem with rental cars so I'll recommend renting one from the condo complex office for major holiday dates.

An unforgettable vacation.

  • 4 of 5

I will have to admit, the initial impression of Punta Cana was total fear and regret. The drive over from the airport to the property was a bit eye opening and unsettling to say the lease. But the minute we pulled up to the gate and got out of our rental car, the overwhelming feeling of peace and relaxation came over us. The property managers came out to greet us and took us right to the unit. The smell of the beach and ocean were so enticing. The view from the condo was spectacular! The property was very nicely maintained and I loved how they kept all the rift-raft away from the beach and pool. We were a little disappointed that the hot tub and wading pool were unusable our entire stay but the infinity pool was great and the ocean was amazing. Some of the best water and sand I have ever dug my toes in. The cable box and telephone did not work the first night but I emailed Denyse and she had a maintenance man on it the very next morning. The spare bathroom's sink leaked but again, was fixed immediately.

And the in room chef that came in made a phenomenal meal for the 4 of us that lasted for 3 days.

The staff was so friendly and cooperative. The 2 gals in the office booked us 3 amazing tours and for such good prices. And we loved having the water filtration system and bottled water service.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience and have some great memories to share.

Peaceful and Tranquil is the best way to describe Las Dunas.

  • 5 of 5

We could have stayed on until 2018 if not having to go back to the daily grind. What a quiet and peaceful location! We had everything we wanted and needed. We loved the pool, it was clean and without all harsh chemicals.Met some wonderful tenanants and guests. We prefer Las Dunas over Hard Rock Resort.

A Honeymoon to Remember 💃

  • 5 of 5


Our stay was extremely pleasant. The property is much nicer than it is advertised. The beachfront views are amazing to say the least. The staff was very friendly and tried to accommodate our every need. Not to mention we endured a category 5 hurricane (Irma) during our stay.

I would highly recommend this property to future DR travelers. Mrs. Denyse & her husband are wonderful owners. Their communication was spectacular. The detailed correspondence was much appreciated. This will definitely be a honeymoon to remember. And we will surely visit again soon...

Thanks again,

TJ & Jackie Sanders.
